Case Study: Heath's Story

At 49, Heath had been suffering with tiredness, headaches, and sinus problems for years. He went through medical tests to uncover the cause, all without success. But when he began experiencing pain in late 2020, it led to a diagnosis of fibromyalgia.

The GPs gave him little hope and said not much could be done. But Heath wasn’t prepared to accept that. As an engineer, he began looking at his symptoms like a diagnostic exercise, hoping to discover what was behind the problems.

How the Your Energy - Your Way 12-week programme helps with recovering energy, releasing trauma, and relaxing the body

Heath began searching for success stories from around the world. And, when he came across Reconnecting You, Heath says it was the first that made sense to him.

“I found Suzanne by chance on LinkedIn. She spoke about helping with ‘recovering energy, releasing trauma, and relaxing the body’. And I could see the results she’d achieved with other people. I knew that I didn’t want to put my body under any more stress by taking medication. And Suzanne seemed to be offering a more holistic approach. It sounded exactly what I needed, so I got in touch for a chat.”

Suzanne had confidence in herself and the results she could achieve

Heath says he wasn’t expecting miracles from the programme. He simply wanted to know the likely impact on his energy, both good and bad. And he needed to know the financial and time commitment needed. He spoke to his wife, asking for her support, and signed up for the 12-week Your Energy – Your Way programme.

“You have to find hope from somewhere when you're living day-to-day thinking this is it for the rest of your life. Even if it was only going to help a little, it gave me hope. During our conversation, Suzanne gave me confidence in the programme. And she had confidence herself in the results she could achieve. It was a big part of why I decided to sign up.”

The programme started with self-care and looking at how things were for him right then. The next step was to begin looking at how he wanted his life to be in the coming months to years. Then he built in steppingstones. These gave him benchmarks so he could see how things were progressing.

Heath says that as the weeks went by, he couldn't wait to get started on the next session.

“The sessions are unbelievably well-structured. As I neared the end and began seeing results, I realised how well thought out everything had been. I got to learn about myself and my personality traits, which helped me see why things were the way they were. It was very empowering.”

By setting goals, Heath says the programme gave him hope for the future. Each week, he received new videos and worksheets to go through in his own time. And these were followed with a zoom meeting to talk about anything that had come up.

“I enjoyed being able to watch the videos in my own time and when I felt up to it. Suzanne's voice was very calming. I did find working on the trauma side difficult, but that depends on what you’ve been through in your life. Suzanne always said I could leave something and come back later if it was too difficult. I still have all the videos and worksheets. So, even though I finished a few weeks ago, I can go back and redo a session if I’m finding things dipping. It’s brilliant.”

You release so many things during the programme. Your mood changes and that alters your mindset and how you look at things

Heath experienced a rapid increase in his results after around 10 weeks. When he came to do the final scoring, the increases were double the expected level. And he says that was genuinely how he felt too.

“You release so many things during the programme. Your mood changes, and that alters your mindset and how you look at things. I tested out my results recently when celebrating a big birthday and overdid it. When I began feeling the pain again, I realised that most of it had disappeared. The great thing about the programme is that I now notice these things and can take a step back to look after myself.”

During the programme, Heath found it useful learning about little techniques which can help him day to day. He recently created an imaginary bubble around himself when someone was being negative. It was something he'd never have considered doing in the past. But, as he imagined the words bouncing off the bubble, he sat there with a smile on his face.

“The programme has been phenomenal. There’s not a single word which encompasses everything I feel about it. I’ve maintained the results even though the programme has finished. But it’s not like the work has ended. I can’t stop and let things go back to the way they were. It’s about building on everything now. I have the blueprint and can go into each area again on my own in more detail. My belief is that's what will give me long-term results.”

Heath stepped back from work a while ago because of his health. He says that a big part of the programme was accepting that he was ill. But his goal now is to get back in to volunteering on the committee of the local football club. He also wants to continue focusing on things that matter.

“I’m taking things a step at a time right now and not going too fast. When I do get back to work again, it will be something that I really want and enjoy. In the meantime, I’m so relieved to have energy without worrying about how things will affect me. I can now take the grandchildren to the park and know that I’m going to be ok afterwards. It's a simple thing but means everything.”

Having been through the 12-week programme, Heath firmly believes anybody can benefit.

“It’s hard to put into words how I was feeling and the point I'd got to before doing the programme. What have you got to lose? If you get even close to the results I’ve had, you’ll want to tell everyone that they need to do this. I absolutely believe 100% that it can help a lot of people in a lot of different ways. Suzanne is amazing and fantastic at what she does.”
