Do you really want to heal or ‘just get rid of’ your symptoms?

The difference between healing and fixing

True healing involves delving a lot deeper than just expecting someone to 'fix' you and your symptoms. It involves getting actively involved in your healing process so that you learn why your body has become 'dis-eased'. The additional benefit of this is that as you start to do this, you become less preoccupied with eradicating symptoms and more interested in your own healing journey and what I call 'the bigger picture of life'. You start to see that you are actually on this earth to EVOLVE, to change, to transform, and ultimately to become a better you...

Why being stuck in a perspective keeps us, well, stuck… (and unwell)

So why do I say that being stuck in a perspective can prevent us from getting well, ie, keep us ill? Because underneath the perspective / belief / paradigm will usually be some FEELINGS which we are usually subconsciously avoiding by staying stuck in our perspective. It is these deeply repressed feelings which are blocking our cells and keeping us less than well – infact literally internally divided – which we need to get in touch with…

Body intelligence, safety, survival and trust

It simply doesn’t work, only living from the head. We cannot stay healthy if we are constantly over-riding our body intelligence, as the thousands of ill people around the world are testament to. We need to be using all our intelligences – intuition, instinct and intellect – in order to function as a fully integrated (whole) being...

Does Mickel Therapy work? Well, are you working your Mickel Therapy?

Over the last 3 years I have seen certain patterns in recovery from chronic fatigue, stress, fribomyalgia etc, and it is clear that there are certain pre-requisites for clients to make progress with Mickel Therapy.

For example, clients who space their sessions out too far can go off course, think it’s not working, and then give up. Then they say Mickel Therapy doesn’t work, which is not true. It may be more accurate to say they are not working their Mickel Therapy…

Is Chronic Fatigue caused by a virus? Letter to the NY Times

After listening to the life history of numerous chronic fatigue clients, there is little doubt in my mind that their immune / endocrine system has become compromised over time as a result of a number of factors, in particular traumatic life events and, more to the point, how these events were perceived and dealt with (or not), at the time. How one deals with or responds to these events then leads to certain habits, behaviours and stress patterns being set in place....

Why symptoms and pain may be a good thing

As you start to investigate yourself and become more aware at a mind-body level, what will be revealed are the behaviours and habits you have set up during your life which it turns out are not particularly beneficial. These include things like putting everyone else first, ignoring your feelings, being a perfectionist, working too hard, driving yourself into the ground, seeking approval, putting yourself down and more…

Healing – are you using the right tools for the job?

If you are looking for ways to get well, you just have to have the right tools. No matter how hard you try or how strong your intention is, if you don’t have the right tools, you’re just not going to get the job done. And that leaves you feeling like you’re hitting your head against a brick wall, which of course is not a pleasant experience…
