Success Stories

These are real accounts from our clients who had suffered ME, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and other conditions before having Mickel Therapy.

  • “I can’t believe how quickly everything turned around for me!”

    I’m a 23 year old female, and through circumstances in life, I’ve suffered with Anxiety. This at times, left me not wanting to leave the house. I didn’t feel I could be in social situations without panicking beforehand. I also had self worth issues, not feeling happy with who I was and constantly putting myself down and comparing myself to others. I had bouts of feeling really down and I would go days without talking to people. I thought there was no way out of the numbness I was feeling.

    On a physical level, I was also experiencing back pain, joint pain, constant sore throats, headaches and skin problems not to mention terrible fatigue. This went on for a few years. Never would I have thought that this was my body’s way of telling me it needed help!

    A friend recommended for me to try Mickel Therapy. My experience of the therapy is a very positive one! Right from the word go, my therapist, Fiona Watson, was very understanding and knew exactly what was the right course of action for me. I can’t believe how quickly everything turned around for me! Within just 5 sessions my physical symptoms and the Anxiety had all completely gone and I am the person I’m meant to be.

    Im still a work in progress, but I have learned to put myself first, and understand my emotions and importantly, how to act on them, as a result any symptoms have  now gone.

    This is definitely a therapy I would recommend to anyone who suffers from Anxiety. Im just so happy to finally have found a way to understand and act on my emotions and to be healthy and happy again.

  • “I would recommend Mickel Therapy to anyone with a long term diagnosis of any illness.”

    I came to Angela Wilson for Mickel therapy not because I have a fatiguing illness but because I have suffered from chronic back pain for at least 6 years. The x-rays and scan showed mild degeneration but nothing serious enough to warrant that level of pain.  I had been prescribed various medications all of which did nothing to alleviate the symptoms.  In fact, they made me feel worse.

    The Mickel therapy has really helped.  I would say that I am a good 80% better than I was and I don’t use any medication.  I cannot expect a full recovery as there is some degeneration.  Angie was fantastic.  She talked me through each process, helping me to face difficult situations and conversations with courage, and then congratulating me every time I did!  Angie is eternally optimistic and joyful and it was a pleasure to work with her.

    Mickel Therapy is not an easy process because it challenges us to face difficult situations.  However this was made so much easier for me by knowing that I had a therapist who had been through a difficult process herself and who understood how hard it was for me.

    I would recommend Mickel Therapy to anyone with a long term diagnosis of any illness.  Its simplicity is its strength!  Thank you Angie!

  • Robyn Falkiner

    The moment I answered Robbie’s call for my first Mickel Therapy session with her I knew I had found the right person to help me. Warm, caring and gentle, Robbie immediately helped me to understand how I could be in control of my own health. I had previously had MT to help me go from a state of being housebound with CFS/ME to a state of returning to work and a normal life. When I contacted Robbie I hadn’t had a session for a number of years, but after our first phone call I was reminded of the effectiveness of the therapy and saw instant results in the reduction of symptoms. I can’t recommend Robbie or Mickel Therapy highly enough. In 11 years of CFS/ME, it is the only therapy that has been truly effective in clearing me of symptoms. K, Melbourne, 37.

  • Pamela Mills


    I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 11 years ago after a number of years of unexplained extreme fatigue.  When I looked up the condition online, it said there was no cure and I lapsed into a deep depression.

    I am a great believer in trying to help yourself as best u can.  So began a long journey of stretching, yoga and pilates classes, adapting my diet and going down the natural route. Some things helped to an extent but it was always there and flared up for long periods of time.  I was in a holistic place one day and someone mentioned Mickel therapy.  I parked it for a while, as when u try everything and nothing works, you lose heart in trying something new.

    A few years later,after another spell, I came on Mickel therapy again.  I went online and read the research and the testimonials and I bought the book.

    When I read the book, I knew I wanted to try out this therapy.  I found a local therapist and made my first appointment.  What a life changer! !

    Pamela, my therapist taught me the skills required to actively apply Mickel therapy to my life.  I burst out laughing when, for the first time, I experienced symptoms and immediately applied the keys of Mickel and the symptoms disappeared! This was so amazing, I wanted to keep trying it.

    It took only 5 sessions to change my life! I had energy I never knew existed.  I was bursting with vibrancy and joy – I had got my life back!

    I can’t recommend Mickel therapy highly enough. Why suffer for years, when you can change things in a very short space of time.

    I now promote Michel therapy to anyone who will listen to me.  And the great thing is, they only have to look at me to see how much it has worked.

    I have now spoken to the GP in the hope that they will suggest it to patients.

    Pamela, my therapist was lovely.  She supported me through the whole process, and I could contact her anytime I was struggling.

    If u have tried  everything and u want to give one more thing a try, please try Mickel.  It really does give u back ur life.

  • By Lynda.

    I have just completed my Mickel Therapy sessions and am delighted to say that my energy level is better than it has been in decades.
    I have lived with Fibromyalgia for over thirty years, during which, I had periods of poor health, interspersed about every four months, with flare ups of debilitating fatigue.
    My medical journey has taken me through arthritis medication, pain killers, steroid injections, muscle relaxants and sleeping tablets, all to little avail. My personal search for a cure involved Homeopathy, Reflexology, Reiki, herbal remedies and vitamin supplements.  I have tried elimination diets and become vegetarian, but still the situation existed.
    Last year, following another flare, I researched new treatments on the internet and, as a result, came across information on Mickel Therapy.  Although slightly sceptical I started my sessions with Lisa Taylor-Penny in May.  From our first contact, I felt as if she knew me.  She is so easy to chat to and, having lived with the condition herself, knew exactly what I meant when I spoke of brain fog, not having energy to finish a sentence or lift a hair brush.  She didn’t try to tell me it was depression or there was nothing that can be done, or worse still, to go away and pretend it did not exist.  The last advice before Mickel Therapy ended up with me spending months recovering from a collapse at work, when I tried to do just that.
    Mickel Therapy has given me back my life.  Changes had to be made, as the old methods hadn’t worked for me.  The therapy is not difficult but it does require you to put in some work.  Once the main principals are grasped, then you simply have to keep practising until after a while it becomes second nature.
    During the treatment, I did experience stressful life issues but, using my tools, I have been able to get through them in a normal way, without causing me a return of symptoms.
    I have had one day of fatigue, following a shock death, but quickly realised this was the perfect time to use the tools I’d learned and it worked.  I recovered normally and my energy was restored.
    Well, that’s my story and I hope that someone struggling as I was, finds it a help.  Mickel Therapy and lovely Lisa Taylor-Penny have helped me so much.
    Thank you.                                            Lynda P.  November 2017
