The Occupational Therapy BSc Hons degree is a holistic course that gave me the necessary grounding to begin to understand this complex condition. I have since undertaken additional training from both NHS, and complementary therapists, who specialise in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and Fibromyalgia.
Having being diagnosed with CFS myself in 2016, I understand how difficult and disheartening this misunderstood condition can be. This led me to develop my own recovery programme to address the many varied symptoms of these conditions, and to ultimately shorten the journey to health and wellbeing.
I have combined, what I consider to be, the most effective aspects of the training with my own personal experience to develop a practical seven step programme which I call the Wellbeing Ladder Programme.
Complete the programme from the comfort of your own home, at a pace and time of day that suits you best by choosing one of the following three options:
Option 1. Total Support
Seven, one to one sessions via telephone or Skype with associated handouts sent via email. This enables me to tailor the whole programme and personalise your support, in order to meet your specific needs and optimise your recovery. Total cost £660
Option 2. Half Self Management and Half Support
Purchase the Wellbeing Ladder Programme booklet plus three, one to one sessions via telephone or Skype which I recommend we have at the beginning, middle and end of the programme. This will ensure you maintain your momentum and continue with your recovery once you have completed the programme. Total cost £310
Option 3. Total Self Management
Purchase the self management Wellbeing Ladder Programme booklet to work through the seven steps yourself. Total cost £17 (inc. UK P&P).
I can also offer an additional service writing reports to support PIP appeals. (This would require me visiting you in your own home.)
“I can’t thank you enough for all the information and support over the programme. It really has made a huge difference to me and I’ve got a lot out of it which has helped me make great improvements to my health, both physical and mental health. I just feel like I can tackle the fatigue so much better now and have a more positive approach to the way I think about it.” Yasmin, CFS client.
“I definitely feel more optimistic about my recovery after completing the sessions, and that I have far more tools to use in achieving my goal of eventually returning to work. I thought the programme was excellent, and I would have no hesitation recommending it.” TC, ME client.
