What does the Course involve?
The Lifting the Lid on Life course runs over 10 weeks and provides a unique chance to explore different aspects of your life, identify areas for change and put plans in place to help you make those changes.
The course will support you in making those small steps, one at a time, that will take you where you want to go. In order to get there, you need to know where “there” is
During Week 1 we will spend time
Working out where your “there” is.
Breaking down your current situation
Identifying your priority areas to focus on.
Agreeing as a group the order that priority areas will be covered
Over the following 8 weeks, we will delve into areas such as Life Style and Pace, Environment, Movement and Nutrition, Emotions, Relationships, Finances and Life Purpose.
Each week we will work with established coaching tools and other techniques to identify issues, gain clarity about what the problem is and then work out a way forward.
During Week 10 we will take time to re-assess and develop a plan for moving forward confidently.
And how will you know whether this course has helped you?
The most obvious way will be a change in your chronic fatigue.
You will be asked to complete questionnaires at the start and end of the course. These will enable you to see and track any personal changes coming from your participation in the course.
The less obvious and more subtle way will be by recognising changes in how you are feeling about your life now and in the future. Throughout the course, we will be working with tools and techniques that enable you to get really clear on how you are going to develop the kind of life that you want to have, rather than the kind of life you perhaps feel stuck with right now. It’s all about moving things forward one step at a time!
The course dates are:

Since this course is focused on supporting people who have a diagnosis of ME, CFS or Fibromyalgia, you may be concerned about whether you will be well enough to join in and/or concentrate. To reassure you, the following will be in place:
Each session will be recorded so that you can re-visit it if you need to
You will be with like-minded people who understand (from their own experiences) what you are going through and will be supportive
You won’t be asked to do any more than you are comfortable with, so there’s no need to worry about over-exerting yourself.
In addition, I have set up a closed Facebook Group so that, following the course, you will be able to stay in touch and support each other through your journey.
Here is some of the feedback from previous courses:
Is there one thing that has stuck out for you?
"Yes, realising that I can be in "control" and that by developing an awareness of my general patterns of behaviour that I will be able to effect change in my life"
What have you got out of the course?
"These weeks have given me a chance to take stock of where I am, where I want to be and how I can get there. The sessions have always made me think!"
