The 7 Types of Fatigue which lead to Chronic Fatigue and ME

There can be much misunderstanding and confusion over the real meaning behind symptoms of ‘chronic fatigue’, and what actually causes various kinds and types of debilitating  exhaustion.

There can also be much confusion over the difference between the labels of ‘ME’ (myalgic encephalomyelitis), ‘chronic fatigue syndrome’ (CFS), ‘post viral fatigue’, burnout, ‘adrenal fatigue’ and more, all conditions which leave one with the experience of overwhelming and seemingly inexplicable tiredness.

So I hope this blog will go a way to explaining the differences.

What I am about to share comes from 20 years of research into this topic, as a result of my own personal experience of adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome and burnout, plus working with hundreds of clients since 2006 with these conditions.

Before we get into the 7 unhealthy types of fatigue, we must first look at what normal healthy tiredness is…


Normal healthy tiredness is the tiredness that our body sends us at the end of the day to tell us it’s time for bed!

This type of tiredness will come on for most adults around 9-10pm, (although this will vary from person to person), and is the body’s natural clock telling us it’s time to go to bed so our body can rest and rejuvenate itself for the next day.

The amount of sleep each adult needs will vary. An average amount is 6-8 hours, for some it could be less, for others more, but the point is, we should wake in the morning feeling refreshed and ready to bounce out of bed for the new day.

Waking tired and sluggish is a sign we have not rested well overnight, and there are usually many reasons for this, which is not the scope or topic of this blog.

The main point here is to point out that this tiredness is healthy and normal, and chronic fatigue-type tiredness is nothing like normal healthy tiredness, as you will soon see.

So let’s now look at the different types of tiredness which can and will eventually lead to chronic exhaustion.

You will notice below how the different types of tiredness will are labelled as a ‘end-result’. This is because we live in a world of ’cause and effect’ where ACTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES. And many people are unaware of the difference!

Just as if we break the laws of society there will be consequences, so too in the land of health. If we break the laws of health, we will experience illness. It’s just nature’s way of telling us we have gone off track and need to get back on track.

So let’s get straight into it – the 7 types of fatigue which will, or will not, lead to debilitating fatigue conditions…


Hyped tiredness comes from getting over-excited.

In Chinese medicine, over-excitement is actually classified as a negative and damaging emotion along with fear, anxiety, sadness, anger and other harmful emotions (harmful in the respect they deplete or disrupt our energy flow).

When we get over-excited, this affects the energy (or Qi) of our heart. Which is why Qigong masters will teach it is healthier to not get over-excited. This does not mean we do not experience joy, it just means we recognize when we are getting ‘over-excited’ and curb this tendency.

Have you noticed that after getting over-excited, for example after receiving some really ‘exciting’ news such as winning lotto, hearing about a new job, making that big deal… a few hours later you may feel absolutely drained? This is the ‘effect’ of the ’cause’ of the heart getting over-excited. It is the other side of the coin, the yin (healing) of the yang (over-excitement). Everything in nature has to balance itself out, what goes up must come down. So if we feel a tiredness after getting excited, this is a natural re-balancing.

Whilst this type of hyped tiredness will not necessarily lead to chronic fatigue, it is something we need to watch for by noticing how our body responds after bouts of excitement.

The next one to watch for after this type of tiredness is…


Food sensitivity tiredness usually comes after eating a meal where the food has not been well tolerated by our gut. It often comes after eating carbs as opposed to protein or vegetables.

This is usually a sign that our gut has an imbalance, or ‘dsybiosis’, which is commonly referred to as ‘leaky gut syndrome’.

Most people will blame the tiredness on the food, and see the food as the ’cause’ of the problem, but actually this is not necessarily the case. What we need to do is to look at why is the gut out of balance in the first place, which is then leading it to not be able to tolerate the foods?

Whilst it may well be true that many of our modern-day foods are not healthy for us, (eg refined flour, sugar etc), it is also true that the healthier our body is, the more it can tolerate different foods, every ‘unhealthy’ ones.

But the question remains, what is it that has put the gut out of balance at a fundamental level?

In my experience, the real cause is not the food: it is the stress we put ourselves under, and in particular emotional stresses which create havoc with our digestive system.

Did you know that your digestive system has a dual function? On a physical level it has to digest your food, and on a meta-physical level it has to digest your life, and in particular your emotional life?

This is a big missing piece for many people. Which is why, whilst you take every supplement under the sun, and some may help, until you address the fundamental cause of the stress, your gut may find it difficult to restore complete balance, and how by addressing the absolute root causes, your gut may well recover without then need for supplements at all.


Emotional release tiredness happens after we have experienced an extreme emotional release, such as sadness, anger, grief, fear…

Have you noticed how after an anger outburst, or huge emotional release, you feel exhausted?

This is because we literally drain our energy when we have powerful emotional outbursts or experiences.

Whilst on the one hand it can be said it’s healthy to ‘let go’ of emotional baggage, in Chinese medicine it is not deemed healthy to have emotional releases because it literally harms the Qi (energy) of our internal organs.

Every time we experience extreme sadness or anger or fear, chemical changes are instigated inside our body, whereby different hormones are secreted, and these chemical changes can and do harm our fragile internal tissues. Believe it or not, people have literally burst their livers during an anger outburst!

In a natural effort to regain balance after a strong emotional release or outburst, we can feel tired as the body restores internal equilibrium.

Again, whilst this type of fatigue is not chronic-fatigue-type tiredness, it is not healthy and we need to train ourselves to deal with our emotions in healthier ways, which is completely possible.


Blocking or suppressing emotions is one THE biggest causes of physical tiredness that can occur, and the least recognized or understood by people until they are taught this information.

For me this was the turning point in my recovery from adrenal fatigue and chronic fatigue syndrome, as well as depression (de-pressing emotions) and anxiety (an overload of emotions).

We are an energy being, quantum physics has proven this for some years now. Magnified a million times, each cell in your body has more space than physical matter!

Our thoughts are energy, our feelings are energy, our body is energy. We are energy! And when we hold in our emotional energy, because a law of physics says ENERGY CANNOT BE DESTROYED, once that emotional energy is generated inside the body, if it is not released or dealt with, it will get stored in the body until we do.

Most people have no idea of how much holding in emotions can and will create severe symptoms of chronic fatigue!

Learning to identify, clear, resolve, dissolve, speak, communicate, manage and master emotions is an absolute essential if you are experiencing symptoms of chronic fatigue or ME etc. This is what I teach people to do big time!

Another type of tiredness is…


Over-doing it tiredness is exactly what it says: it is tiredness that comes from constantly pushing ourselves and doing too much or more than is naturally healthy for us.

We work 60 hours a week, rushing from activity to activity, and then crash on the weekend as our body attempts to redress the imbalance.

Unfortunately as human beings we tend to forget our body is not a machine or designed to be ‘run into the ground’. It has needs, it needs to be cared for with love, respect and attention on a daily basis. Most people care for their car or house better than they care for their body… until it gets ill and they have to finally pay attention.

Our body needs BALANCE. It needs food, water, exercise, rest, fun, creativity, work, play, sleep, activity… in balance.

What it doesn’t need is to be driven like a work horse day after day, having many of its basic needs ignored or under-addressed.

Eating on the run, skipping meals, working 60 hours a week, not taking breaks, not sleeping enough, not exercising, eating junk food, drinking alcohol, smoking, spending hours sitting, not going outside for fresh air, back-to-backing appointments… these are all examples of not taking care of ourselves. What’s on your list?

The deeper question to recognize is WHY do we overdo it? WHY do we push ourselves so hard? With every client I have ever worked with who constantly pushes themselves too hard, the answer is always the same. NOT FEELING GOOD ENOUGH.

Deep down there is a hidden feeling of ‘If I don’t do more, or prove myself more, I won’t feel good enough, and people won’t accept or like me. I’ll be a failure and no-one will love with’.

This stems from whatever beliefs we set up in childhood, and these are the patterns that need to be worked on and cleared to effect true change.

Over-doing it tiredness is not healthy and is a sure sign you need to pay attention to your habits, because not doing so, along with holding in emotions, will start to lead to….


Adrenal Fatigue describes a physical condition whereby the adrenal glands, which sit on top of the kidneys, exhaust themselves of adrenoline.

Symptoms of adrenal fatigue include inexplicable tiredness, foggy brain, difficulty getting out of bed in the morning, salt and sugar cravings, decreased sex drive, mild depression, increased PMS, poor memory, inability to handle stress, insomnia, gut issues, food intolerances, general lethargy, decreased zest for life and more.

Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome was a term first brought to the world by naturopathic doctor James Wilson, and is a very real syndrome involving a complex group of symptoms which all track back to severe exhaustion and depletion of the adrenal glands.

The adrenals are mostly known for creating two vital hormones, adrenaline and cortisol, which are necessary for managing stress.

Initially, in the first stage of adrenal fatigue, the adrenals will over-produce stress hormones, but if the life stressors (which can be many fold) continue, eventually the adrenals will become ‘exhausted’ and under-produce, which in turn can be a precursor to a host of other conditions such as metabolic syndrome, under- or overactive thyroid, Addison’s Disease, Hashimotos and more. Many of the chronic conditions which we experience often rest on a bedrock of severe adrenal depletion.

There are several stages that the adrenals go through before they finally become exhausted, which I will not go into in this article. But suffice it to say this is a fairly serious condition which we must take seriously, because it means our energy reserves are severely depleted, and we will feel exhausted.

If you want to check out if your adrenals may be fatigued, you can take this adrenal self-assessment here.

If we do not deal with our adrenal fatigue and over-doing it fatigue we are likely to start experiencing…


Burnout tiredness is the tiredness we feel after we have been over-doing it and pushing ourselves relentlessly for far too long. Eventually the body just says ‘enough is enough – I cannot go on like this any more. I cannot take being driven like a work horse, or you ignoring my needs – I’m absolutely exhausted’.

Burnout will mean we will feel like we just cannot go on another day. Our temper will be frayed, we cannot stand loud noises, we can hardly get out of bed in the morning, we have just reached the end of our tether. And yet we keep going!

But finally after our body can no longer take any more we will find ourselves with…


Chronic fatigue (CFS), post-viral fatigued and ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis) are the final end results of all the above.

Finally we find ourselves unable to get out of bed or doing any thing considered ‘normal’ in our everyday life. We have no energy for work, play or even rest.

We find ourselves having to quit our job, unable to look after or play with the kids, travel, pursue hobbies, read a book, type a letter, take a shower, hold a conversation, lift a cup, cook a meal, go for a walk, go to the gym… activities which we took for granted before.

We get to a point where our life is disrupted beyond recognition. This is the place where most people get to before they finally recognize (re-cognize) that they are ill, even though the writing has been on the wall for some months or years.

This type of tiredness does not ‘happen overnight’ although the ‘waking up and not being able to get out of bed’ can happen overnight. It is the body’s final way of saying ‘that’s it, I’m taking you out, you WILL get the message I have been trying to get through to you that you need to change your ways, because if you don’t I will send you something even more serious’.

Finally we come to a point where we must take notice because we are too debilitated not to. Finally we stop and start asking questions.

This is the point I came to 20 years ago. I walked into work one day and quit my job on the spot. I could not go on one day longer. It was the start of a very long journey back to health, where I was unable to work for 10 years. I lost everything financially in that journey – house, car, savings…

My wish for people is that they learn to recognize the ‘signs on the wall’ and avoid having to take such a journey. Fortunately, I am able to help people short-cut this experience by months and years, either by helping them before they reach the end of the road, or help them to reverse the end-results in a much shorter time than they could ever do by themselves. Which I am able to do.


This type of tiredness must be mentioned here too.

The tiredness experienced after a viral infection, where afterwards we find we cannot get ourselves together or regain our energy, is known as ‘post viral fatigue’.

Often people can think their CFS or ME etc is a result of the virus.

This may not be the case, and in my experience working with hundreds of clients, is not the actual real cause of the tiredness.

Normally what we will find is the the stressors and all above mentioned fatigues were going on for months and years before the post viral fatigue set in. It’s just that the virus was the LAST STRAW for our body, and it finally collapsed, and allowed a virus in.

This is one of the most misunderstand concept around post-viral fatigue.

You can understand this in this brief video:

And let me mention one further type of (sort of) healthy tiredness…


As part of our recovery from exhaustion, burnout, chronic fatigue, ME, post viral fatigue, we are going to go through a period of ‘healing tiredness’. This is a natural part of the re-balancing of yin and yang.

If we have spent years pushing ourselves far too hard, our body needs time to rest and recuperate. Just as your body needs to rest after a very stressful or busy day, and you will feel tired the day after over-doing it, magnify this hundreds of times for the number of hours or days you have spent overdoing it, and there is quite  a shortfall to catch up on!

The trick and challenge is to learn the difference between when your body needs rest and recuperation, and when it doesn’t because the tiredness is due to suppressed emotional energy.

This is one of the trickiest things to learn, and is one of the main things I help people with through personal coaching.

So… I hope this information will prompt you to re-assess your tiredness and work out the different contributing factors which may be creating it.

Be warned – the emotional suppression tiredness is the trickiest one to notice, because often we have no idea we have been suppressing our emotions!

Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime

Yesterday I was humbled and blown away by something a client shared with me, and it made me remember why we are here on planet earth, and why I do what I do as a vocation. It also prompts me to share something I have told very few people, because it’s very personal.

First of all I need to give some background to put this story into perspective…

In 2000 I met a very great spiritual teacher – Amma – who is also known as the ‘hugging saint’. I think to date Amma has given spiritual ‘hugs’ to around 30 million people. She is beyond a saint and in spiritual terms known as an ‘avatar’ or great being who comes to the world in times of great need.

I met Amma on my trip around the world in 1999 while I was searching for answers to the illness which had keep me virtually housebound for 5 years – chronic fatigue syndrome.

I had set off around the world on ‘one last trip’ because after 5 years unable to work or barely function, I was on the edge of giving up hope of getting well again. So I set off round the world while I was still able to walk, to do ‘one last trip’ in case I got worse and could no longer do anything.

After 11 months I had still not found answers even after trying multiple therapies, and finding myself incapacitated on many occasion for weeks at a time, and this is when my path crossed with Amma.

Being in her presence the first time was an extraordinary experience and one I will never forget. The deep peace I felt after her first hug left me in a state of satori (bliss) for hours. I had never experienced anything like it. My mind stopped, there were no more thoughts, and I was immediately transformed forever. I accepted her as my teacher (or rather she accepted me as her student).

During her 3 day retreat in Dallas I was given a mantra (a phrase repeated to aid concentration in meditation), which is carefully chose for each student, and I left the workshop to practice it daily,

It was a week after her retreat that I met the first person who ever really helped me understand the connection between suppressed emotions and illness, and from that day everything changed, and I started to get better. It was another 6 years of putting the emotional clearing practices I learnt into place on a daily basis before I felt well enough to work again.

I discovered 10 years after meeting Amma that she visits Australia every 2 or 3 years. On discovering this I met with her for the second time in 2010. This time I asked for a spiritual name, which one is able to do when it is the right time.

The point of a spiritual name from a ‘guru’ or teacher (guru literally means ‘dispeller of darkness’) is that it describes a trait or series of abilities one is to ‘live up to’ or fulfil in this lifetime. It is a guiding post showing one one’s purpose in life, and in particular one’s purpose for being of service to the world and humanity.

I was told ‘no, it’s not your time to have a spiritual name… ask again next time’. I left the retreat and continued practicing my mantra daily, and returned 3 years later in 2012, when I asked again for a spiritual name. This time she said yes.

Each spiritual name is always absolutely unique and personal for each person. It is a word which comes from their Soul and has deep deep meaning.

The name Amma gave me was ‘PRANADA’ which translates as ‘bestower of life’. As soon as I was told it’s meaning, I knew what it meant for me and why it had been given. It felt like a huge responsibility and I didn’t share it with anyone for quite some time.

At this stage in my life I had already been working for 6 years as a therapist helping people get well from debilitating illnesses which most doctors tend to say are incurable, or at least unmanageable without medication, things like chronic fatigue, ME, fibromyalgia, IBS, depression and more. I knew I was already helping to ‘give people their life’ back.

But it wasn’t until yesterday that I realised just how much this is the truth:

I checked in with a client who had just had her parents to visit for a week.

Now for many people this may not be a big deal, but for this client it was.

When she first came to see me she was beyond collapse. She was barely able to look after herself or her children or function in any normal capacity due to beyond extreme fatigue and pain.

In our first breakthrough session, where we identified the true reason her symptoms had been created, we discovered she had spent her whole life holding all her feelings inside, afraid of speaking her truth with her friends, parents, husband… She had held everything inside for fear of being judged, scorned, invalidated, misunderstood, criticised, humiliated or even punished.

She had driven her body to exhaustion by constantly overdoing it in an unconscious effort to get love and attention from people in her life as a result of not feeling completely loved as a child.

I have to say that this issue sits at the root of every client I have ever worked with for the past 11 years. Not feeling good enough, worthy enough, clever enough, or just plain ‘enough’, is the root cause issue of the beliefs, thoughts, feelings and behaviours we then create which later down the track lead us to feeling either desperately unhappy or ill. Illness is just a furtherance of the hidden unhappiness.

As a teenager this deep sense of unworthiness had led this client to experience an eating disorder, anxiety and depression. Later this led to exhaustion and severe fatigue / pain symptoms.

So the anticipation of having her parents come to visit was a big deal, because it triggered her body right back into the fear and stress response she had experienced as a child.

Before her parents arrived, we made a plan of action, in particular around ‘boundaries’ and what she needed to set in place to make the visit work for her. We planned how she would put herself first and make herself a priority. We practised how she was going to say this with her parents so she felt confident to speak her truth without fear of rejection or reprisal.

And then she did it. She took the action, even though in her words ‘she shook for 10 minutes’ after telling her parents what she needed to make the visit a success and ok for her.

She had never spoken to her parents like this… ever.

She had never stood up for herself in this way, or believed that she had a right to do so. She told me after they left that it had made the world of difference. She put herself first, and even her husband noticed a dramatic difference in how she had been so much more empowered.

When I asked her what would have happened if we had not met, and she had NOT been taught the self-help tools she had learnt to look after herself during her parents’ visit, her response blew me away, and reminded me of the name Amma has given me to live up to:

“If I hadn’t known what I have learnt with you, I would have considered ending my life before they arrived. Instead I am powerful and I now know I am not wrong to feel my emotions, or feel frustrated with others. I just was never taught to speak my truth or communicate my feelings, but now I can”.

I was blown away, because she was absolutely serious about how bad she felt before learning these life changing tools, and what she might have done had she not learnt them.

In just 2 months this is the transformation she has already created for herself as a result of having new tools to manage her everyday life, and to value and love herself enough to believe she has the right to make herself her number one priority in her life.

This is what I LOVE about the work I do: I don’t do anything FOR clients – I teach them how to do it for themselves, and as a result their body self-heals on every level: emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically. To me this is true healthcare, and is the future of healthcare – showing people how to transform their health and life without external intervention such as medication. This is what excites me!

As the saying goes ‘give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime’.

So thank you Amma for being my guiding light. Thank you for giving me the strength to keep going myself when things are tough, so that I have the strength to share these amazing life-changing skills with others.

The Fears Natural Health Practitioners have to Face every Day

There is no doubt that natural health practitioners have to face a lot of fears:

For a start, the fear of not being able to help clients reach their desired outcome (health), simply because no guarantees can ever be made as to results. Recovery from a health condition is a very personal journey and experience, and ultimately all healing  comes from within the client themselves, along with the guidance and support of their therapist. (Think about it: if you break an arm, does the plaster cast heal your arm, or does the healing occur from within the cells of your body? The latter of course, along with support from the plaster cast. This is true with all healing; no matter what the health condition is, all healing comes from within).

But a much bigger fear that I have been becoming aware of and have not spoken about before is this:

The fear of the ‘establishment’.

What establishment?

The fear of the mainstream medical system within which most of the ‘first’ western world sits. The establishment that has been ruling the roost for the past 100-150 years that says doctors, surgery and medication are the number one solution to health problems, ‘doctor knows best’, and anything else is ‘alternative’ and at best second-best or third-rate.

Now, let me say for the record, I am not anti-doctor or anti-establishment. No! I am all for mainstream medicine in the right place at the right time. I believe it has fantastic solutions, especially in the arena of life-changing surgeries and helping people to get on with their life with the assistance of medication.

But the truth is, mainstream medicine is not the only way, and it is not ‘better than’ anything else. It is just a part of the total solution.

And it is also not a case of ‘either (mainsteam) or (natural health)’ – we need both!

We need it all, for now anyway. In the future when we have evolved our consciousness further, we will be able to drop many of the approaches we currently use, and as we look back we will see how ‘old-fashioned’ and even ‘barbaric’ some of these approaches are. Chemotherapy, surgery and radiation for example…

The problem is, we have been so unconsciously conditioned and brainwashed into believing mainstream medicine is the first – or only – port of call, that most people do not even know there are alternatives, or as I heard it described this week, alternative health is just ‘witch doctoring’.

So what are the fears I am talking about which natural health practitioners like myself are continually faced with?


Do you know it’s illegal for anyone except a medical doctor to claim they can ‘heal, cure, treat or diagnose’ a person? Yes indeed, crazy but true. Personally I have no interest in using these terms because:

  • I do not ‘heal’ people – I show them how they bring themselves back to health through looking after themselves and making changes in their life
  • I do not ‘cure’ people – I show them how to restore their own health and wellbeing
  • I do not ‘treat’ people – I educate them on the true nature of illness and how they can restore health by following the laws of health
  • I do not ‘diagnose’ people – I show them that whatever the end-results are in terms of symptoms, there is almost always a cause if you know how to find it

So as natural health practitioners we continually have to super vigilant not to use these words or we may face punishment ‘from the establishment’, from people who often know far less than we do on the topic of health.

Fear of Speaking up and Standing Out

This is a big one. There is this constant underlying unspoken fear that if we step up and out, and claim that natural medicine can do as much as, or even more than, mainstream medicine, we will find ourselves in trouble with the ‘establishment’.

According to news reports, doctors who have stepped out beyond the establishment have found themselves dead. Literally. I cannot vouch for any of these reports, but if they are true, this is scary stuff. It means that ultimately we have no freedom of speech and no right to stand up for what we believe to be true or right. It is witch-hunting all over again, and this fear is in the collective unconscious, which is why it feels so strong and all-pervading.

Constantly we hear how ‘big pharma’ control the government through money, maintaining their grip on the use of drugs, which only ever address the end-result rather than the real cause of illness.

This has been a big fear for me too. But I can no longer sit by with the profound understanding I have of what causes illness, and how we can recover from even the most chronic of illnesses still deemed ‘incurable’ by many doctors, and often do it without any external intervention such as medication, supplements or surgery, and not share this life-changing information with the world. 

I cannot not share the truth. It is a crime that more people in the world do not understand and know this information.

Continually we are fed the line that we are still seeking ‘a cure for cancer’ and yet many of the causes and solutions are here right now, just not yet well know by most people.

Continually we are fed the line that there is no known cause for illnesses like chronic fatigue, ME or fibromyalgia, and yet the causes are well documented, and the solutions readily available for those that are willing to open their minds and hearts to this new information.

This month I will be presenting at a major medical conference, and as far as I know, I am the only natural health practitioner in the line up. It is forcing me to face my fears of the ‘establishment’, the fear of claiming I might ‘know more than a doctor’. But my desire to see natural health and mainstream medicine come together is too strong to not be sharing this information now. Our world is in crisis, our healthcare system is in crisis, and people need to know their options.

At the conference I will be sharing how thousands of people have recovered from conditions like chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, post viral fatigue, anxiety and depression, conditions which mainstream medicine on the whole say are ‘untreatable’, and how they have done it without medication through remote sessions and home study programs.

This is the future of healthcare! People can bring themselves back to health from even the most debilitating symptoms as long as they know how to!

I remind myself of Chai Chuah, Director General of Health’s, words at the Health Congress earlier this year: SERVICE ABOVE SELF.

How can I serve the whole? What does humanity need right now? Does it need what I and my colleagues have to share? YES!

Our prevailing medical paradigm has to change. It has already started to change, we are making inroads, and we still have a long way to go…

So if you are a natural health practitioner, I invite you to stand up and speak out, stop being afraid of the ‘establishment’. Own what you know and be willing to stand up and claim your truth.

5 ways to clear depression without medication

This is a very sad and shocking statistic.
As someone who has suffered intense depression, I know how bad depression feels.
I ended up in hospital many years ago with severe depression, but intuitively I knew I did not want to take medication. Actually I tried it for about 3 days, felt 10 times worse, and stopped it, and instead chose to find a different way out.
We can get to the root cause and clear depression, in many cases without the need for medication or supplements. This is my wish for anyone – to not have to be reliant on drugs to manage depression, because managing it with drugs will hardly ever get to the root cause and clear it at a foundation level.
So here are 5 tips for clearing depression without medication:

1. Stop de-pressing your feelings

Depression is very often the ‘de-pressing’ of emotions, both ‘good’ and ‘bad’, or rather and to be more accurate, ‘happy’ or ‘unhappy’ feelings. In the case of depression, all the feelings, both ‘good’ and ‘bad’ get ‘de-pressed’, leading to the horrible feeling of ‘depression’.
So what are the feelings we are de-pressing and why do we de-press them?
Well, they can be any and all feelings, but in particular the most common ones which I have found lead to depression are emotions such as sadness, anger, fear, jealousy, frustration, hurt, guilt, shame, loneliness, boredom, lack of joy, disappointment etc.
And why do we de-press them?
Because we are unconsciously afraid of feeling them.
According to psychologists, one of the greatest fears for a human being is to feel our feelings fully. As a result of this when the feelings arise from within, we either don’t notice them, or we half notice them and suppress them as quickly as possible.
The problem is, feelings are literally a form of energy (go check out quantum physics theory to learn more about that) and once energy is generated, it’s a law of physics that this energy cannot be destroyed or just disappear into thin air. Instead, we have to learn to transmute this energy, which can easily be done if we know how.
So why are we afraid of feeling our feelings?
Because when we grew up somehow or other we learnt it is not ok to feel my feelings or have feelings or show my feelings, because if I do I will be rejected or judged or criticised or punished (you fill in the blanks for the consequences). So unconsciously at a very early age we teach ourselves to ignore our feelings rather than feel rejected etc, because for a young child this lack of love could (in our little child minds) lead to abandonment and therefore inability to literally survive. But remember, all of this is set up at an early age unconsciously. And the ramifications down the track years later are huge.
The solution? We must learn how to become aware of what we are feeling underneath the de-pression, which means we need to learn how to identify the feelings, accept feelings, and then transmute the emotional energy. This can all be done – it’s a skill, and it can be learnt. (See resources at the end of this article).

2.  There are no bad emotions – all emotions are OK

It’s so vitally important to understand that there are no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ emotions: they just are. It is our mind that judges them and separates them into ‘good’ or ‘bad’.
In order to understand this further, we must understand what emotions really are:
Emotions are a sensation felt in the body.
They are a form of feedback from our body to our mind to tell us how we are feeling about a certain situation. They are constructive feedback from the body to the head.
If something feels right for us, we will feel ‘good’. If something doesn’t feel right for us we will feel ‘bad’.
Unfortunately, due to many of these emotions being experienced in childhood, and not knowing how to deal with them, we come to erroneously think we ARE bad if we feel ‘bad’ emotions. This is not true!  They are just a feeling, and all feelings are welcome. They are the truth of how we feel.
Imagine a battery: would you say that one end of the battery is good, and the other bad? NO! Each end just has a different polarity, and both serve a purpose and are needed. If you didn’t have unpleasant emotions how would you know the difference between that and good-feeling emotions? We live in a universe of polarity, it’s just physics.
So we need to understand that feelings are feelings, and we don’t have to judge any feelings as wrong or bad. They just are. It’s what we do with our feelings that matters.
So what are you doing with your feelings?
Are you noticing them? Are you acknowledging and accepting them? Or are you resisting them? Because what we resist persists! The more we resist our feelings and sweep them under the carpet, the stronger they become, and the more havoc they play.

3. Start giving yourself permission to feel your feelings

Now that you know that all feelings are ok, and that you are not ‘bad’ for having feelings of anger, sadness, jealousy, shame, guilt…. you can start to acknowledge them.

So try this exercise:

When you next notice a feeling such as anger, fear, sadness, guilt, shame… any ‘bad’ feeling emotion whatsoever…
  1. shut your eyes and take a few deep breaths deep down in your belly
  2. notice where the feeling is located in your body
  3. silently in your mind tell yourself ‘this feeling is welcome, I acknowledge and accept this feeling’
  4. breath deeply into your belly with your attention on the feeling
  5. totally welcome and accept the feeling without judgement
  6. breath more into your belly and into your shoulders, feel your whole body expand
  7. keep welcoming the feeling
  8. and notice what happens
When we shine the light of our conscious awareness on our feelings, they start to transform. This is internal alchemy. Al-chemy. All-chemistry. We change our chemistry. (For more on this see Candice Pert’s book ‘Molecules of Emotion’ which explains how our feelings literally change our chemistry).

4. Go outside and soak up the sun and fresh air

Sunlight is crucial for our health and wellbeing. Unfortunately as modern-day, westernised humans we spend far too much time indoors.
Have you noticed how when you go outside your body immediately breathes a sigh of relief and relaxation? We need sunlight to feel good: it stimulates seratonin production, which is an essential hormone for happiness.
So try this exercise (it can be done on a sunny or cloudy day):
  1. Go outside, TAKE OFF YOUR GLASSES, CLOSE YOUR EYES and face the sun
  2. BREATHE the sun in through your mid eyebrow point into the centre of your brain / pineal gland
  3. Breathe in the sun and fill your pineal gland / brain with sunlight
  4. Continue to take in the sun down through your neck into your thymus gland in your chest
  5. Breathe in the sun into every endocrine gland in your body (go google your endocrine glands if you don’t know where they are. You should know, it’s your body!).
  6. Breathe in sunlight through your spinal chord
  7. Breathe sunlight into every organ in your body
  8. Breathe sunlight into every cell, tissue and organ

Notice how you feel after doing this exercise. What has changed?

Do this exercise at least 3 times a day, every day.

To learn how to do this exercise really well, check out Gilles Marin’s SUNNING CD available on his website. Gilles was one of my first teachers who helped me to learn how to manage and master my emotions.

5. Get in touch with your body

According to Chinese medicine, all emotions affect different parts of our body, and in particular different organs and organ systems. When we have negative feelings and don’t clear those feelings from inside of us, they literally get stored inside of us. Feelings buried alive never die.
When these feelings build up over time, eventually they start to affect cellular function even to the point of creating severe illness. We must learn to get in touch with our bodies and notice how we feel in our body, not just our head, when we feel emotions.
Worry affects the stomach and spleen which is why we say “I was sick with worry”.
Anger affects the liver which is why we say “I was livid with anger”.
Fear is a cold emotion and affects the kidneys which is why we say “I was frozen with fear”.
Hurt affects the heart and lungs which is why we say “I was disheartened, or my heart was heavy with sadness”
Our emotions literally affect our physical body, altering our physiology and chemistry. 
Feeling ‘bad’ also affects us mentally, bringing negative thoughts, which in turn affect how we feel; it’s a vicious circle and everything is interconnected.
We must learn to feel where are emotions come from within our body, and give ourselves permission without judgement to feel our emotions so they can transform and pass through. The only reason they ‘stick’ inside of us is because we are resisting them.
It’s OK to have feelings – you are not a bad person to feel any feeling. Just learn how to process them and watch your life transform!

Why you need to stop getting hooked on the label of your condition or therapy

Over the years, working as a multi-disciplinary therapist, I have noticed several common themes amongst expectations from clients around healing, and one overriding common expectation is this:

‘THIS (xyz) therapy is going to heal me – it will be THE answer’.

Since 1985 I have personally recovered without medication or supplements from multiple chronic ailments including clinical depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, adrenal fatigue, burnout, anxiety, allergies, asthma, urticaria, hives, severe back pain, ongoing UTIs and more.

I have trained professionally in a 20 truly revolutionary, cutting-edge healthcare approaches, and personally tried and tested nearly 200 therapies on my journey to find answers.

So which therapy worked?!

All of them, and whichever one was right for me and I was ready for at a particular time!

After having worked for many years now offering a variety of therapeutic approaches, it has became clear to me that many of these different healing approaches overlap, whilst at the same time each one has their own unique approach, techniques and strategies.

I now see that whilst each individual methods may be exceptional in itself, it also has its own limitations, simply because it’s not physically possible for any one therapy to offer every answer.

This is one of the biggest myths we must understand if we are looking for answers: expecting only one approach to fix everything will bring us disappointment.

It may be that for a smaller percentage of people (about 20% in my experience) do get a full result with just one approach, for the remaining 80% this is unlikely to be the case.

This does not mean that a therapy is not ‘good’ if it does not have all the answers! It just means it does not have all the answers.

In order for one therapy to have ALL the answers it would literally have to be an amalgamation of every therapy available on the planet today! Can you imagine that? That’s a pretty tough call and basically impossible.


One of the laws of life is that everything evolves and nothing stays the same. This IS evolution and we cannot stop it, it is a natural law and a fact. The truth is not evolving goes against this law. This applies to humans too: we need to grow and change or we become stuck and static, and that is when we get ill too!

So one of the most important things to understand when it comes to dealing with a health condition is that it is not the therapy itself that creates the change…

…rather it is the knowledge and application by the practitioner of certain techniques and strategies, combined with the understanding by the practitioner of what really causes and resolves ‘dis-ease’, plus the connection and rapport between the therapist and client, and the internal and external changes this client makes in their life, that brings the change.

Labels for therapies and conditions

Over the years I have noticed how people get very ‘fixed’ on labels when it comes to their health condition or symptoms:

Attachment to the health condition

Either the person will become fixed on the label for their health condition (eg, ‘my’ chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, lupus etc), owning their condition for ‘dear life’ as if, if they by chance gave up that label, they would be lost.

This is not healthy. It is much healthier to say we are temporarily ‘doing’ a condition or a set of symptoms until we no longer need to anymore.

Remember, a label or name for a health condition is just a string of letters and words to describe a certain set of symptoms so that we have common language to communicate with.

The real meaning of the symptoms is that they are the body sensations your body is choosing to send to you to get your attention. Symptoms have meaning and messages, and this is what together we will work out in our first Kiwi Health Detective Breakthrough Session.

Remember, a label is just a label, you don’t need to buy into it. It’s just a useful term for communicating what is going on with you when communicating with other people, or trying to describe to others what is going on for you, but you don’t have to let the label ‘own’ you or you own it.

Attachment to a therapy

The other thing that people can get fixed on is the label of the therapy itself.

What happens is, people hear about someone getting well with ‘xyz’ therapy, see some wonderful results, and then think ‘this is the therapy for me’.

Now, whilst this may be true, and this particular therapy may well bring great relief,or even total recovery, it is the techniques within the therapy that bring more results than the label of the therapy itself.

Every therapy has its own techniques, strategies and approaches, and whilst every therapy will have wonderful techniques for helping clear symptoms, it is the techniques not the label of the therapy which are making the difference.

But over and above the therapy and the techniques it offers, there is something even more important than the techniques and strategies of that therapy:


According to the latest research, only about 2% of results come from the therapy itself!

Results come from the skill of the therapist being able to deliver the techniques with the client, and the rapport that develops between the therapist and client.

This means the therapist needs to be skilled in delivering the techniques and strategies, no matter what therapy they come from, and be able to ‘read’ the client’s needs and apply the strategies uniquely for that client, who is a unique individual with their own unique needs.

This also means that ultimately the name of the therapy is irrelevant. It is the tools, strategies and techniques which that therapy offers (whatever the ‘label’ of that therapy), plus the ability of the practitioner to deliver those strategies and techniques in an effective way to suit each client’s unique needs.

Very importantly the client must feel safe with the therapist in order to be able to open up and be honest about what is going on in their life in order to discover what it is that needs to change. Because healing both requires and comes from change. Healing is transformation and is a transformative process. As one of my teachers used to say ‘healing is transformation: we change and are never the same again’.

So one of the biggest pieces of advice I can give a client is to:

  1. Not get hooked on the label, health condition or diagnosis they have been given
  2. Not get hooked on the label of a health therapy

At the end of the day, the label given to either of these things is irrelevant!

What you need to find is a therapist who knows how to decipher the symptoms your body is sending you into the unique message those symptoms are telling you, so that you truly understand what is causing the problem.

Your therapist then needs to know what will be the right approach and techniques you need as a unique individual for you to bring your body back to its natural state of health, no matter what therapy they come from!

This is the service I offer: in our first Kiwi Health Detective Breakthrough session we do the first part of identifying what has caused the problem, and after that we work together to solve the problem, which may require more than one approach.

After having tried nearly 200 therapies myself, I am well equipped to know what is likely to help you!

7 Things your Doctor will – and won’t – tell you about Chronic Fatigue, M.E. or Adrenal Fatigue

What I am about to share took me years to learn: about 25 years to be precise!

Because it was such a long journey, one could say the ‘long’ route up the mountain, and because I’ve now shown so many people up this mountain, I’ve now found the shortest path – the short cut as they say. And this is what I’d love to share with you.

If someone had come to me 25 years ago when I was struggling to overcome depression, adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue and a host of other health issues, and told me what I am about to share with you, it would have saved me thousands of dollars and years of my life searching for answers. Which is why it is so important that I share this with you now.

There are many more precious gems I could add to what I have written below, but here are 7 top tips I want you to know right now…


  1. Often I hear from clients they’ve been told IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD. 

So what does this mean? That you are making it up? That you enjoy making up symptoms of debilitating pain and fatigue?

It might be your doctor who tells you this, or it might be a close friend or family. The problem is, symptoms of fatigue and pain are ‘invisible’ and often we look ‘fine’. People probably tell you ‘ah, yes, we all feel tired from tired to time don’t we?’, without having an inkling of the indescribable debilitating exhaustion that is really going on inside.

So how do you feel when you are told this? Usually you are going to feel invalidated and unheard. You are going to start doubting yourself, maybe even think you’re going mad, and then start to wonder maybe they’re right and you are making it up!

My advice? TRUST YOURSELF. No-one knows your body like you do. You KNOW what feels right inside your body, you know when things are ‘off’. Get a second opinion. There are plenty of doctors out there who are familiar with CFS, PVFS, adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue, ME, and know how to diagnose it.

Human beings do not like to be ill for no reason. And even if symptoms are ‘psycho-somatic’ they are still valid and have a purpose, they hold a hidden meaning, a reason for being. It’s up to you (sometimes with help from someone who knows how to interpret this hidden meaning) to work out what your body-mind is really telling you so it can revert to it’s natural state of peace and calm.

2. Often I hear people are told THERE IS NO KNOWN REASON FOR YOUR SYMPTOMS

This was what I was told too.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The body is FAR too intelligent to make mistakes and there are always reasons for it creating pain and fatigue.

The problem is, we must understand what causes symptoms in order to be able to clear them. Unfortunately this is not currently trained in our culture, where (with all due respect to the amazing feats of modern technology, surgery etc), the emphasis is on diagnosing (giving a label) to a set of symptoms, and then trying to get rid of them as quickly as possible without working out why they are there in the first place. Crazy eh but it’s quite prevalent!

Just a few months ago I literally heard that in only 5% of cases is a doctor likely to be able to identify the cause of illness. 5%! Which means in 95% of cases they cannot say what causes symptoms or illness. It’s a scary statistic, and one I hope will change soon.

So here’s the thing: symptoms are the body’s way of getting your attention, of telling you something is wrong in your life. They are an end result. They are your body’s way of grabbing your mind’s attention to alert you to the fact that something is ‘off’ or you are ‘off track’ in your life somewhere. THIS is what we need to focus on in order to find the true cause of symptoms. And this is exactly what I do when I work with clients. Effectively I am filling that 95% gap.

So if you find yourself being told ‘there’s known cause for your symptoms’, go get another opinion from someone who DOES understand what’s going on.


This is one of the most common stories people are told or hear in the media.

So here’s the truth about viruses: according to a forward thinking doctor named Dr David Mickel, the body only allows a virus to take hold once it has become severely and ongoingly depleted through multiple stressors which have weakened the immune system to the point that it allows the virus to infiltrate the system.

When we track back, we find there are a number of life stresses which have occurred over time which finally allowed our immune system to reach a ‘last straw’ point where it just has to break down. It can no longer cope with the pressure. This is when the virus hits. And it’s after this severe virus that we either can’t seem to get well again, or take ages to get well, but either way we just ‘never feel the same again’, and of course the mind latches on to the fact that we just had a virus and thinks it’s the virus that is the cause of the problem.

From my experience of listening to hundreds of clients stories, I have seen the same pattern over and over again, and come to understand that the virus is the last straw, and that the real problem actually started years before. When we deal with the root of the problem, then we can turn things around!


Whilst on the one hand we may well need to rest, because usually one of the key causes of CFS, ME, adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, PVFS etc is due to overdoing it and pushing ourselves to the limit for too long, leading to adrenal fatigue, the solution is not just to rest.

Instead we need to ask ourselves ‘what is it that has really caused my symptoms? What is the much bigger picture going on here which I have not yet seen?’

This is when you will start to discover the things your doctor has not told you…



Now this can seem a little strange at first. We are so conditioned in the Western world to look for a physical cause to our physical pain.

But here’s the thing:

Every physical function of the body is linked to a corresponding meta-physical function. 

Now, before you get all worried about me getting all ‘woo woo’ on you, I can assure you there is nothing woowoo about the word metaphysical at all. The word ‘meta’ means ‘beyond’. So metaphysical just means ‘beyond physical’.

So what is the metaphysical here? It is what is going on in our mind, our heart, our feelings, our life… it is whatever is happening in our life which is creating an emotional /mental response in our life which is upsetting our body to the point that dis-ease turns into disease. It’s really quite simple when you understand this and know how to decipher how the body works.

In Dr Candice Pert’s book ‘Molecules of Emotion’ she clearly describes how emotions affect our chemistry, literally changing the functioning of our cells. She explains how our body is a conglomeration of trillions of cells which make up tissues, organs and bones. We are a community of cells.

When we have upsetting life events, our emotions trigger a cascade of hormonal responses in the body, secreting different chemicals (hormones) in our body in response to those situations. These chemicals change our chemistry and eventually this can lead to illness because the cells are physically so out of balance.

This is why physical symptoms are the end-result of what is going on in our mind and emotions, and this is where we need to look to find the solution. Once you know how, it all makes perfect sense, and this is exactly what I do when I work with clients, or teach them how to do for themselves with online home-study programs.


This was one of the most important pieces of information anyone ever told me on my journey back from chronic fatigue. In fact it was life-changing.

I had spent years thinking I had no energy. Why wouldn’t I think that when that was what I was quite clearly experiencing?

For years I had been telling myself “I’m tired” and believing I had no physical energy.

Now here’s the double whammy:

On the one hand, we have run our battery down, and we may literally have adrenal fatigue, which means the adrenals are literally exhausted. Dr Wilson clearly talks about this in my interview with him on my chronic fatigue recovery summit.

However, speaking personally, whilst it was clear I had exhausted my adrenals, what I also discovered (the big missing piece) was that I also had an energy block and that this was the true and even deeper cause of my fatigue. And working with hundreds of clients it has become clear that it has been the same for them.

This energy block is so severe it actually blocks our energy and makes us feel exhausted. And specifically this energy block is a blocking of emotional energy. 

Without even realizing it, I had been holding in a lifetime of emotions, holding them in completely unconsciously, not even knowing they were there!

So where did these emotions come from?

They came from every time I felt sad, angry, frustrated, guilty, ashamed, betrayed, lonely, hurt, disappointed, afraid as I was growing up… and didn’t know how to either feel or express those emotions. So I held them all inside, unknowingly.

But here’s the thing: it takes energy to hold emotions down. It’s like holding a basket ball under water: one has to apply constant pressure to do so, and after a while it gets tiring!

So for years this emotional energy had been building up inside of me, getting bigger and bigger, the pressure building inside, and the force to hold them in increasing, using up all my precious life force energy!

Once I learnt this, and then learnt how to let go of the pressure, like letting steam out of a pressure cooker, everything started to change. Immediately actually, it was life-changing.

So chronic fatigue is often a chronic blocking of emotional energy, not a lack of energy, and we must address this to effect recovery.


Often we can find ourselves with different symptoms: tiredness, pain, insomnia, heart palpitations, muscle aches, nausea, over-sensitivity to food / chemicals /noise / people, digestive problems, stress and more.

Here’s the thing: they are all connected. The body is one whole unit, and your body has certain propensities for certain ‘weaknesses’ or sensitivities in certain organs or tissues. This is because there is no-one else like you on the planet – you are completely unique, with your own set of life circumstances and experiences.

Your body will create the perfect set of symptoms for you to get your attention. Each symptom has its own meaning. Each tissue and organ has its own metaphysical function (as well as physical function), and it’s up to you (with the help of someone like myself) to interpret that meaning – which is easier than you may think!

Whatever is showing up symptom-wise, there is a deeper core meaning, and that is where we need to get to. This is where the gold lies! This is the hidden treasure!

Once you learn how to interpret your body’s communication, you will piece everything together, and everything will become clear.

It’s taken me years (25 years) to piece all of this together. And it takes me just 90 minutes to explain this to a client and work out what their body is telling them via symptoms. It’s exciting! Just imagine, if you have had symptoms for years, how would it be to understand the cause in less than a couple of hours?

If I wrote you a letter, this is what I’d want you to know…

If I were to write a letter to you my client, or any future client, this is what I would say. And I mean every word of it…

I’d like to share with you how much I love and respect you for who you are, your willingness to be open, vulnerable and honest with me, and share your deepest pains and hurts, secrets which often you have told no-one else, not even the closest people in your life.

I really understand how much you have been through to find yourself in the place you now are, seeking the help you so desperately need, and I honour that.

Having been through the same, or very similar, experience myself, I know what it’s like to be there.

I also know we share similar values, which is one of the reasons we both ended up in this place, things like honesty, integrity, caring for others, not hurting others feelings, putting other’s first.

But deep down we also care about our own happiness and wanting to fulfil our own dreams, so now it’s time to put yourself first and make that happen.

I know you want to be living your life to the full, enjoying your work, family, friends and special people in your life. You deserve this, as every human being does, even if you don’t fully believe it for yourself yet.

I know that by reaching out to me you have decided that finally enough is enough, and that you have decided it’s time to make yourself a priority and put yourself first. You have decided to be courageous and that you are going to do whatever it takes to transform your current situation into one of joy and triumph.

You have decided you deserve to be happy and well, and that you are going to make this your number one priority above all else. I congratulate you for this because this is the first step in turning your life around – committing to you!

You have decided you will no longer put up with hurt and pain in your life, whether physical, mental or emotional, and I know I can help you through this. I know what it’s like to feel bad, or be treated badly, and it’s not fun, or ok. Together we can change this.

I am absolutely committed to your success. I will be here for you all the way, for as long as you need help. I will support and guide you step by step, walking alongside you until you reach your goal. I want you to succeed, your success is my desire, and I say that from the bottom of my heart. And I know I can help you get there.

You are no longer alone in this journey. I know how lonely this place can be, where you feel no-one understands your needs, pain or hurt. I know how crushing it can be to not know which way to turn or who to turn to for help, and how difficult it is to be walking this journey alone. I know what it’s like when people tell you there’s no hope or nothing you can do, how devastating that is. Fortunately I also know it’s not true, and that there is plenty of hope and there are plenty of solutions.

So I want you to know you are no longer alone, you have me by my side, because I know how much difference it makes on all levels to have support, and to feel safely guided with personal support. You are no longer alone in this journey.

My dream for you is that you reach your desired goals in as short a time as possible, so that you can return to your life in an even better way than ever before.

Ultimately you will experience the freedom that comes from good health and authentic happiness, leaving you free to pursue your goals and dreams, whether that be with your family, friends, children, partner, work, travel or other. This will then allow you to fulfil the purpose you have come here for – your own unique purpose for being on this planet. Living from an authentic place of health and happiness will allow you to do this, and is a natural outcome of this inner transformation.

The fact that I have already walked this journey already myself, plus helped hundreds of others do the same, means I know I have the perfect tried-and-tested tools and strategies to help you reach your goal. After having tried so many approaches myself, (200 and counting), I know what works and what doesn’t, meaning I can short-cut the journey for you like you wouldn’t believe.

With my natural intuitive abilities to see right through to the core of the problem immediately, from our very first session, and know exactly what’s right for you as the unique individual that you are, I know what you need. This is not an off-the-shelf solution, it’s tailor-made for you.

Because of my training in multiple modalities I can pick and choose the best tools and strategies for you depending on your needs. After having tried and tested everything myself, I know how it’s difficult sometimes to get complete results with only one therapy, but having several methods and hundreds of techniques at our disposal, I know we can find the right strategies and techniques for you.

I know the recurring themes which run hidden beneath the issues you want to solve, I know how to pinpoint the cause of the problem with laser-like vision, and then I know how to help you resolve it – for good. This is all very clear to me now after having gone through these processes thousands of times with clients. You are in safe hands.

Through the personal guidance of 1-1 coaching, you will have the constant ongoing support and guidance I know is necessary to turn your situation around in the easiest and quickest way.

By only working with a few clients at a time you can be assured of my total commitment and attention to you, where you will be in my thoughts even in between sessions. My desire and goal to help you reach your outcomes is constant and consistent during our time together, and even when you have finished your program, I will still care about how you are doing in your life, and will reach out to you from time to time to see how you are going.

The bottom line is, I genuinely care about your success. You are not a number, you are a unique, valued and valuable human being, and I want the best for you from the bottom of my heart.

I know it’s been hard for you up to this point with what you have had to put up with up until now. I know the struggle of getting through each day, wondering if you can go on another moment.

I am here to help you change all this. No longer will you be alone wondering what the right thing to do is. You will have clear guidance every step of the way until you reach your goals.

So in many ways we are peas in a pod. I have been where you are now, I know how bad it feels, and I know what it’s like to not know where to turn for help, or feeling like you don’t know how you can go on. I know what it’s like to take two steps forward and one back, and wonder if you are doing the right thing, and even sometimes really afraid that things will never get better.

I know what it’s like to be so exhausted with fatigue you can’t even walk to the end of your driveway, or drive 5 minutes to the shops for food…

I know what it’s like to feel so depressed and down that it feels like it’s impossible to imagine there could ever be light at the end of the tunnel…

I know what it’s like to be in such excruciating pain that even the strongest of painkillers don’t make a dent, even to the point of being ambulanced to hospital…

I know what it’s like to try so many different therapies and yet nothing seems to work, and then after a while it just feels like a waste of time… and money.

I know what it’s like to feel like you have no-one to turn to and that no-one seems to have the answers. I spent 10 years searching for answers until I finally found them. And now I can short-cut that process for you into a few days, weeks or months.

I know what it’s like to feel like you don’t have a right to live your dreams or even be happy. I know what it’s like to feel completely alone and unsupported on your journey.

I know what it’s like to be on a social security benefit and not be able to pay your rent or buy food. I understand first hand the financial stress that can come as a result of being ill and unable to work.

And I know what it’s like to be constantly scared and worried that things may get worse rather than better, and that maybe it’s all totally hopeless. I know what it feels like to feel that perhaps the only option is to give up.

I also know that together we…  YOU… can come through this, because if I have done it, and hundreds of others have done it too… you can too.

There is always hope as long as you never give up. The body-mind has an incredible ability to restore health and harmony as long as you know how to do that, and I know how to show you.

I know you have what it takes within you to turn it around, because as humans we have an extraordinary ability to triumph even the most dire circumstances. It’s just within our DNA, even though it might seem impossible right now.

When we work together you will be guided step-by-step, in a paint-by-number fashion to reach your outcome. You don’t need to know the ‘how’ – that’s for me to show you the how. All you have to do is commit and turn up, and then together we do the rest. Your job is just to decide you want the outcome, commit with a big whole-hearted YES, and then our journey together begins.

You can do this. You deserve it. You are worth it. And together we can do it.
