Chrysalis Effect Recovery Programme

Chrysalis Effect Recovery Programme

Have you been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME or Fibromyalgia?

Do you recognise any of these?

Then the Chrysalis Effect Recovery Programme is for you

How do I start on my Recovery Journey?

The Recovery Programme is made up of an Online Supported Recovery Programme alongside Wellbeing Coaching sessions with a Specialist Chrysalis Effect Practitioner such as myself.

Having gone through the Recovery Programme myself, I was so impressed with the results that I trained as a Specialist Chrysalis Effect Practitioner in 2011. I have now taken my training to the highest level within the Chrysalis Effect Team and become an Advanced Specialist Practitioner, with additional training in Family Dynamics, Trauma, Adverse Childhood Experience ACE, Personal Empowerment and have regular professional Supervision as a Specialist Practitioner.

Our experience shows that to get the best results from the Online Recovery Programme we always recommend that you have one to one Wellbeing Coaching sessions with a Specialist Practitioner, who can tailor the Online Recovery Programme to your individual needs and provide additional complementary therapies where needed.

How do I start on my Recovery Journey?

Holistic Approach to Recovery

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME & Fibromyalgia are multi-faceted conditions that require a multi-disciplinary team approach, to ensure you have the right support at each phase of your recovery. 

That is why as Specialist Chrysalis Effect Practitioners we work as part of a team, to ensure that your Recovery Programme is always client focused, where your needs always come first. 

As part of my team I have hand picked Independent Practitioners who have a broad range of modalities, including Registered Nutritionist, Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Trauma Practitioners to name but a few. All of our Practitioners have undergone specialist accredited training or referral practitioner training in CFS, ME and Fibromyalgia.

8 Areas of the Wellbeing Wheel

The Online Recovery Programme and the Wellbeing Coaching sessions are designed to teach, coach and mentor you through the 8 key areas of Recovery. 

Each area will help you discover more about you and what you need to address for your underlying physical and emotional causes of pain and symptoms. 

The Recovery Programme has proven prevention and recovery focused protocols.

What is a Discovery Call?

During your FREE 20 minute Discovery Call, I will talk a little about your completed Health Profile, how the Chrysalis Effect Recovery Programme can work for you and how the one to one Wellbeing Coaching fits in with the online programme.

The Discovery Call is the best way to get your personal questions answered about how The Chrysalis Effect Recovery Programme works and how I am able to support you.

There is no pressure to sign up to The Chrysalis Effect Online Recovery Programme or optional Wellbeing Coaching sessions and feedback tells us that people find these Health Profile Reviews incredibly valuable.

If you do decide that you would like to work with me, we can then arrange your Initial Consultation (this can be face to face or online) where I will discuss your Health Profile in more detail and where you are in ‘The 6 Phases of Recovery’ and most importantly to pinpoint which of the 8 key recovery areas would be essential for you to focus on first.

Chrysalis Effect Wellbeing Coaching

Why is it best to work with a Specialist Practitioner?

Chrysalis Effect Wellbeing Coaching sessions are optional and highly recommended. They work alongside the Chrysalis Effect Online Recovery Programme

My experience shows to get the best results from the Online Recovery Programme it is recommend that you work with a Specialist Practitioner, such as myself, where I can coach you one to one, help you set and achieve your health and wellbeing goals, plus tailor the Online Recovery Programme to your individual needs. 

By working with a Specialist Practitioner and having Wellbeing Coaching sessions, you will also have access to the Chrysalis Effect Referral Team of Specialised Practitioners.

Wellbeing Coaching sessions can be face to face or online, so distance is not a problem and you can work with me from the comfort of your own home. Online sessions work really well with doing Emotional Freedom Technique also known as EFT or Tapping and I teach The Balance Procedure online too. If you live close to me and wish to have hands on treatments such as Nerve Reflexology or PhotonWave Light Therapy or an Autonomic Response Testing ART Sessions then you can visit me in person.

I am with you every step of the way

What is Wellbeing Coaching?

Wellbeing coaching is a holistic approach to examining how your personal wellbeing interacts with your values, goals and motivations. It looks at every aspect of your life. The Chrysalis Effect Wellbeing Wheel addresses 8 key areas such as, Nutritional Health, Thyroid & Adrenals, Emotional Health, Environment, Lifestyle & Pace, Relationships, Movement and Life Purpose.

Wellbeing coaching is there to motivate, inspire, teach and support you, helping you regain your health and happiness. A Wellbeing Coach is there to guide you to bring about a clearer understanding of your issues or concerns, helping you to re-frame and interpret them, then helping you move forward to the goals that you wish to achieve.

Having a Wellbeing Coach gives you that support and accountability to move forward and make the necessary changes to regain your health and vitality.

Wellbeing coaching helps you when you are feeling stuck and would like to work through barriers to achievement, wellbeing and improving your health. It uses your own motivations and strengths and supports behaviour changes through a collaborative, non-judgmental partnership.

How do the Wellbeing Coaching session work?

During your initial one hour consultation, I will go through the Wellbeing Wheel with you, this give me a really good snapshot of where you are, what you are doing well and which elements need work in order of priority.


Follow-up sessions are bought as a Package of Care, which can be broken down into sessions of 15 minutes to one hour depending on your needs and energy levels.


During your Wellbeing Coaching sessions I work with you to help you set and achieve your wellness goals, help you understand who you truly are, and share coping skills with you for a well life. I can also offer Complementary Therapies during these sessions where appropriate.


In my experience, where there is often the biggest resistance in addressing an area of the wellbeing wheel, this is the area where we have the biggest breakthroughs. This is why when working with me as your Wellbeing Coach I can give you the best support, guidance and encouragement you need to make these important breakthroughs.  


My passion is to teach and empower you to be the ‘Best You’ you can be.

How does Wellbeing Coaching work with the Online Recovery Programme?

As your Wellbeing Coach I can tailor the Online Recovery Programme to your individual needs. For example, if I feel that you would benefit from a session from Week 26 of the Online Recovery Programme and you are only on Week 6, I can tailor the programme and send you the sessions from Week 26. By working this way I can really make the Online Recovery Programme a personalised Recovery Programme designed around what you need at the right time. 

It is natural when we start any online programme for our motivation to be high at the beginning, racing ahead with our sessions and then slow down or stop over time, as life gets in the way or energy levels are low. Some sessions you may find that you have to delve a little deeper and we can easily keep putting off completing these and this is where working with me, helps keep you on track.

Chrysalis Effect Team Approach and Cross-Referrals

When you work with me for Wellbeing Coaching, I take on the role as your Lead Practitioner. This means that you have one person that is overseeing your Recovery. 

As your Lead Practitioner I work with you on your Wellbeing Coaching sessions and also support you with the Online Recovery Programme, tailoring it to your personal needs. 

If I feel that you need additional support at any time, such as Nutritional Therapy or more specialised counselling or trauma release work, I can then cross-refer you to one of my fellow Chrysalis Effect Team Practitioners. 

As your main Practitioner I will always take the Lead Practitioner role and oversee your Wellbeing Coaching sessions and progress on the Online Recovery Programme. 

I work closely with a team of Independent Chrysalis Effect Practitioners who have a broad range of modalities, including being Registered Nutritionists, Psychotherapists and Counsellors practitioners and have all undergone additional specialist accredited training in CFS, ME,  Fibromyalgia and Pain Recovery

You can choose to see the other Practitioner for that particular therapy alongside seeing me or complete the sessions with the other Practitioner first and then comes back to me as your Lead Practitioner to continue your Wellbeing Coaching sessions. 

I am very fortunate to work with an amazing team of Independent Accredited Specialist Practitioners.

Complementary Therapies included in your Package of Care

To compliment your Wellbeing Coaching sessions I also offer the following Complementary Therapies, these are included in your Package of Care. 


Complementary Therapies not included in your Package of Care

As some of the therapies I offer are more specialised, these are in addition to your Package of Care and can be booked as and when you need them.

My Fibromyalgia Story

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1999, after many years of experiencing pain and fatigue following a car accident in 1991. I remember coming out of the doctor’s office and standing on the corner of the street, just crying my eyes out, not knowing then anything about the condition or even how to spell it. I was devastated.

I didn’t know where to start to find out about this condition, at that time nobody I knew had even heard of it. I remember buying a book about Fibromyalgia that said that there was no cure and I had to learn to live with the symptoms. Great, I was only 33 years old, with two small children, I felt that life was so unfair. I had lost my dad when I was 18, my brother was diagnosed with renal cancer a few years before and my mum had just been told she had ovarian cancer, and now this.

Having gone through the normal conventional treatments of graded exercise and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), my symptoms were no better. I was also sensitive to all the pain medication and so embarked on my journey into complementary therapies. I spent thousands of pounds over the next couple of years trying many different therapies. Some helped more than others, I needed to have a deeper understanding so I started my training as a complementary therapist in 2003.

I found that the following therapies that I had qualified in really help me such as Reflexology, Emotional Freedom Technique and The Balance Procedure. Although I was starting to feel better, I still had some relapses but didn’t understand why. Then I found the Chrysalis Effect Recovery Programme with their 6 Phases of Recovery Map and proven protocols for each stage of recovery. I then understood what I needed to address for my underlying physical and emotional causes of pain and symptoms. I was so impressed with the improvement in my own health that I trained as a Chrysalis Effect Specialist Practitioner.

I was trying to do it on my own, which didn’t work. Although I was very knowledgeable in holistic therapies, I needed the Chrysalis Effect proven recovery protocols, the support of others and the accountability of working with a Wellbeing Coach. There was a lot of unresolved trauma and grief in my life that I needed to address and when you are working by yourself there is always a good reason why you shouldn’t start today.
