“I highly recommend Mickel Therapy, it is the only therapy/treatment that has helped me and in only 4 months (5 appointments)! I have my life back “

I’ve been a veterinary nurse since I was 18. When I was 21 I was working long hours and
regular night shifts, I became run down and ended up with glandular fever. Then 5 years
ago my doctor diagnosed me with CFS and since then Fibromyalgia. I was exhausted
and in pain pretty much all of the time. I was unable to exercise and had to reduce my
hours at work. I couldn’t make plans too far in advance because I didn’t know if I’d be
well enough and I would cancel on my friends all the time. I was stuck in the same boring
routine every day just so I could survive each week. Unfortunately my doctors could not
help me.
A couple of people recommended Mickel Therapy to me so I looked into it and made an
appointment with Trevor and I’m so happy I did. The information he gave me really blew
my mind but at the same time made perfect sense. Almost immediately I was more
energetic and I felt like I had my life back. I started making more plans and being
spontaneous. It also allowed me to recognise that I actually have a problem with my hip
as all the other pain I was experiencing has gone. So now I can focus on sorting that
problem out.
I highly recommend Mickel Therapy, it is the only therapy/treatment that has helped me
and in only 4 months (5 appointments)! I have my life back and I can’t thank Trevor
enough for this!

“I don’t know how to put into words the immense gratitude I feel for what I now refer to as my miracle cure; towards Leisa Zakeri my therapist and Dr Mickel for his pioneering work”

I had had ME/Chronic Fatigue for the last 14 years and had resigned myself to living
with it, managing the condition through coping strategies that I thought were
working as well as anything could. I had pretty much accepted the conventional view
that it isn’t really ‘curable’. I recognise now that the very coping mechanisms that I
was using were actually exacerbating the problem and I was stuck in a vicious cycle.
A new acquaintance of my husband’s recommended trying Mickel Therapy as she
had been helped by it. I was a bit sceptical actually but as I was pretty desperate I
also thought I didn’t have much to lose from giving it a try.
I am so glad I found Leisa! We hit it off straight away and from the first I knew I could
have absolute confidence in her skills as a therapist and in her as a warm, caring
human being who really understood my experiences. I did throw myself into it quite
wholeheartedly which probably helped I think. I noticed results almost immediately
and this encouraged me to keep going with the new techniques I was learning and to
trust the theory. Leisa was very patient and needed to help me to keep coming back
to the principles again and again so that I really understood what I was doing, why
and how best to approach things as I struggled with them. I felt total confidence in
Leisa; I particularly appreciated that she paid a lot of attention to detail and was very
perceptive and insightful. The therapy is simple in many ways yet challenging in
another because in my experience it is about changing habits and requires
commitment and practice. But that is perhaps also its strength – this isn’t about just
getting rid of feelings of tiredness and other physical symptoms, for me it has been
transformative on many levels.
We had nine sessions in total over a period of five months, and a follow up one eight
weeks later but I was reassured throughout knowing that I could email or speak to
Leisa whenever I needed to between sessions. I really felt that she offered complete
support and the therapy was without question very good value for money.
One fabulous aspect of my recovery has been the realisation that I thought I had got
better a few times before I did Mickel Therapy but looking back I know that I wasn’t
better, I was perhaps only 90% better. Leisa helped me to see how my recovery
could be complete and that I didn’t have to settle for ‘good enough’ in this instance.
There have been some other highlights – my amazement when I saw how much
boredom, lack of joy and fulfilment I was experiencing in my day to day life and I
absolutely had a view of myself that I’m not someone who ever gets bored! And the
joy, how I’ve brought joy back in to my life, found myself again when really I’d
become a little lost somewhere along the way. And I’m well on the way now to
climbing a proper hill again – I’ve had a little practise run and found it easy – and that
was something I had given up the idea of ever being able to do again. I know that I
will need to use Mickel Therapy techniques to keep me well and I am not
complacent but I am like a new woman! And I feel as though I can live the life I want
to now which is huge.

So Mickel Therapy has been quite literally life-changing for me and it really has been
like a miracle, words cannot convey the gratitude I feel. I can’t recommend it highly
enough and Leisa is absolutely worth her weight in gold! Thank you Leisa.

“I cannot thank Susan enough for all her help and would highly recommend Mickel therapy.”

Before working with Susan I suffered from quite severe anxiety/panic attacks. My days were
ruled by my anxiety and it was beginning to impact my work and my relationships. I felt
hopeless and believed that my situation couldn’t be changed. Mickel therapy was
recommended to me by a colleague, and at first it sounded almost too good to be true, but
after hearing my colleague’s first hand experience and doing my own research, I wanted to
give it a go. Working and talking with Susan has always felt comfortable. She was always
highly approachable and I felt supported and listened to within and out with our sessions. I
was always assured that I could contact Susan between our sessions also if I ever had any
questions. The resources were also incredibly useful and applicable to my day to day life. The
best result I have gotten from working with Susan has been the significant drop in my
anxiety levels, which has allowed me to focus on my day to day life and actually enjoy what
is going on around me. I cannot thank Susan enough for all her help and would highly
recommend Mickel therapy.

“How can someone ever say that within 6 weeks they are free? That’s truly how I feel! Completely free!”

What can I say?! How can someone ever say that within 6 weeks they are free? That’s truly how I feel! Completely free! I have always suffered from SAD, depression, anxiety, fear, fatigue in one shape or another, and finally pain not only in my joints but in my muscles which was unexplained, from as long as I can remember.  After seeing numerous doctors, asking a million questions, taking unknown number of blood tests, and still getting nowhere, I was DESPERATE to get an answer on what was going on with me.  I decided to research ME, CFS, and FM and found that I had some of each of those symptoms, but nothing concrete. Having written all of my symptoms down, I brought them up with my doctor and, again, was told that I’d have to have had these symptoms for ‘X’ amount of years before I would get a diagnosis, and that it was a “rule everything else out” diagnosis.

Well, I couldn’t just sit back, suffering as I was, for endless amount of years in order to finally get help. I decided to call Angela Wilson. She and I have known each other for 18 or so years, and I knew her when she had terrible fatigue and was largely bedbound. I knew that she could at least help me to understand what was going on with me.  Although my husband and I moved on several years later, we still kept in touch with Angie through Facebook. One day, she wrote that she had just finished a 3 mile hike with no pain or fatigue. I was shocked, having known that she couldn’t possibly do that the way she was when I lived near her. But she had completed Mickel Therapy and this was the result.

So, when I was going through the same thing, I knew who to talk to. Angie was a living testimony that this works! During our conversation she said that it sounded to her that I indeed had the same things she had dealt with all those years ago. She told me all about Mickel Therapy and told me to go on the website and watch the video. I was shocked. It was describing me in a nut shell. The next time we chatted, she asked if I would be interested in doing Mickel Therapy. Of course I jumped at it! I said that I would do ANYTHING to get well. (Mind you, I wasn’t going to sell my soul to the devil because that is not our way, but she knew I was very serious and ready to start.)

I jumped on everything she taught me with huge determination from the very first word. I started with her on the 1st of June and was well, complete and free on the 19th of July. I remember saying that I didn’t realise how ill I actually was until I wasn’t ill any more. She knew I was well again. I have NO PAIN, NO FATIGUE, NO ANXIETY OR DEPRESSION, and have been back to doing all of the things that I used to do. I’m exercising every day, meeting up with friends, singing in two choirs, doing family things, and look forward to doing a lot more. Everything about Mickel Therapy is awesome! I am proud to say that I am living proof that it works. I am planning to train to be a Mickel Therapist because I believe in it so much.

Even if she wasn’t a friend, I’d recommend Angela Wilson to anyone who has these issues. Angie is very dedicated in helping others and is so passionate about the fact that Mickel Therapy heals. She simply gives her clients her ALL. Angie is loving, kind, truthful, helpful, patient, professional and will not give up on you. She says that it’s because of MY hard work that I am well again, but I feel that if it weren’t for her guidance and determination with me I wouldn’t have seen improvement at all. Thank you Angela for showing me the way to wellness through Mickel Therapy! It truly works!

“I am now well from CFS, and have my life back!”

I suffered with severe anxiety from a very young age and also OCD and depression and suicidal thoughts. I then had a breakdown at the age of 19 and developed glandular fever and then CFS/ME/Fibromyalgia not long after.

Before my Mickel therapy with Fiona, I was basically resting/sleeping 95% of the time and didn’t have much quality of life at all. I never had any energy, it felt like I had the flu all the time, and was in severe pain, had brain fog, headaches and lots of other horrible symptoms. Anyone that has had CFS/ME/Fibromyalgia would understand how much of a difficult struggle life was. The 5% of time that I was doing things, I had to push myself to do them and I still felt fatigued and in pain and just wanted to get in bed and sleep. I felt depressed and anxious a lot and wasn’t doing things that use to make me happy.

I was nervous about doing Mickel Therapy, I thought it was going to be really hard. But I was also filled with hope as my friend who told me about Mickel Therapy, used to have CFS/ME/Fibromyalgia also, but was now cured and got her life back because of the therapy , which I thought was an absolute miracle. So I was also very excited to start and knew that this was the answer I had been looking for!

The therapy was in fact nothing like I thought it was going to be, and definitely wasn’t as hard and I started improving immediately. My therapist, Fiona Watson was absolutely amazing, the most lovely, kind caring and supportive lady who really knows her stuff! She helped me every step of the way and also gave me the confidence to trust in myself. I couldn’t have asked for a better therapist!

After only 6 sessions over 3 months, I am now cured and have my life back. In fact I am better now then I have ever been my whole life. I still can’t believe it and I’m so thankful to Fiona and Mickel Therapy for making me happy and healthy again !!:)) I’m now working again and busy and active every day. I go to the gym and exercise regularly and I’m trying new things all the time and doing all the things that make me happy! I’ve just got back from a first time skiing holiday which was amazing, there’s no way I would have been able to go skiing when I was poorly! Wouldn’t have even let the thought enter my mind! I’m now looking to book up another ski holiday soon I would recommend this therapy to anyone with CFS/ME/Fibromyalgia, it feels incredible to not be ill anymore, I want everyone with CFS to give it a go and see that there is hope and they can get better!!! because it truly is the cure and answer!

“I fully recovered my health with Mickel Therapy!”

I am a mum of 2 who works part-time and whose husband works very long hours. The responsibility of the children and a demanding job pushed my stress levels higher and higher until I became ill with shingles. I was putting everybody’s needs above my own, as many mums do! Following on from the shingles I had post-viral fatigue and anxiety.

With Fiona Watson’s help and with the tools she gave me through Mickel Therapy over the course of 5 sessions and 3 months, I recovered to full health and am now able to lead an active life. If I feel the anxiety and fatigue returning, I now have the tools to restore me back to balance in my life and health and am able to do this. Thanks Fiona for all your support!

“After 25 years of Anxiety and Depression, Mickel Therapy helped me get well!”

For 25 years I suffered from nervousness leading into deep anxiety and stress which developed into depression and feelings of worthlessness. Physically I experienced joint pains, rigidity in major muscles, pressure headaches and extreme exhaustion.

Initially I found the therapy quite mentally and emotionally challenging, addressing issues and talking about myself was uncomfortable for me. But I quickly realised that the seemingly simple techniques were powerful tools that really worked.

Fiona Watson was a super therapist!! Happy, directional, full of practical suggestions as to how I could move forward. Yet realistic too, but always positive and empathetic. Her pithy reminders still ring in my ears when needed. I completed my 6 sessions in just 3 months!!

Since completing MT I make sure of the more important things – taking care of my own emotional needs are essential for all other aspects of life to improve. I have revisited old hobbies and embarked on some new ones, make more time for friends and look to include more people generally. My physical symptoms are vastly improved also my aversion to social gatherings has all but gone. If I do experience negative emotions I recognise them as such and use my keys!! I understand that acting on those emotions is what makes me feel good, and that knowledge alone gives me peace of mind. Thank you for putting the pieces together for me.
