Holistic Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME service

This is a purely therapeutic programme and only patients who have undergone appropriate investigations and have been diagnosed with CFS/ME are usually put into the care of the CFS/ME team.

Patients with severe fatigue associated with a long term chronic condition get a similar (integrative care) assessment but not by a member of the CFS/ME team. However they will also access a unique personal package of care as a result of the integrative care assessment.

MBCT is useful in long term chronic conditions, anxiety and depression and addiction.

Our practitioners are qualified in Integrative Care approach and MBCT/MBSR

First there is a meeting with a member of the Holistic/CFS/ME team (up to 90 mins)

During this session we discuss how the condition impacts on all areas of the patient’s life, emotional, social, spiritual, physical and financial, and produce a unique package of therapies for that individual with their input so that a timeline of care can be produced eg. A patient may initially access a self-help education programme or a physiotherapy assessment, followed by one or two complementary therapies eg acupuncture, homeopathy and ending with a course of MBCT if the programme suitable for the candidate. As patients with CFS/ME can have a wide range of symptoms and depth of fatigue, one plan cannot suit every case. That is why our unique person-centred approach bases the therapy on their unique physical, mental and emotional state.
