Support Groups Information…
I currently work with two Charity Run Support groups as their in house Hypnotherapist running relaxation groups, Hypnotherapy sessions and ‘Harmony Life balance’ Courses regarding the Power of the Mind teaching how you can utilise your mind to create positive change during difficult times within our lives such as dealing with cancer or the effects of ME and Fibromyalgia.
Salus Fatigue Foundation
Salus Fatigue Foundation is a charity, not for profit organisation, that provides support, advice, education and helps in the long term to inspire people living with ME, CFS and Fibromyalgia to improve their health and wellbeing. I regularly run sessions each month where they are based in Sutton Coldfield, Kings Heath and Solihull plus providing 5 to 6 week courses on ‘The Power of the Mind’ and ‘How your Mind can Heal Your Body’.
Dealing with the effects of ME and Fibromyalgia can be debilitating, therefore working with the mind can create positive changes both mentally and physically for people experiencing this. My ‘Harmony Life Balance’ courses teach how the mind works, and that in having the understanding of the mind allows people to move forward in a way that gives them hope to returning to a balanced well being.

“I joined one of Michelle’s relaxation groups about a year ago prior to undergoing some major surgery. I had already begun to address my fitness and diet but wanted to ensure that I was also maximizing my capacity and resilience to deal with stress and stressful situations. I wanted to ensure that I was well prepared for surgery and recovery.
I find Michelle’s open, warm approach alongside her deep commitment and professionalism easy to engage with. I have certainly valued her assistance in helping me to find a time to dedicate to myself. She has also offered practical advice, solutions and ideas as to how to manage stress and anxiety.
I find the group sessions helpful and rewarding as it is apparent that Michelle has helped others in the group as well as me and this is evidenced in some of the group’s discussions.
Michelle’s assistance has helped me to take full advantage of the expertise and hard work of the medical team supporting me in achieving a good recovery from my surgery. Many thanks Michelle.”
Positive Place of Life
I remember January 2016, the beginning of an exciting year where I had planned so many wonderful things to do. Then everything came to stop as I heard the shattering news that I had breast concert aged 49 years old. My life was changed forever and my world came crashing down around my feet. Over the next 12 months I had to endure a mastectomy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormone treatment.
However, it is now May 2018 and I am in a very good place and yes my life has changed but now I see it in a very positive light. I’m very happy, I enjoy life and I try to live in the moment seeing and feeling the wonderful things in life it has to offer. My way of thinking has gone from thinking and worrying about my negative thoughts and I have now replaced them with positivity and a healthy outlook in life.
Michelle has very much helped me to get to this very positive place of life and her knowledge, expertise and fantastic relaxation sessions have enabled this to happen. Michelle has taught me how powerful the mind is and how you can alter your way of thinking to bring calm, positivity and wellbeing back into your life.
Words can’t thank you enough Michelle.
