I am a 45 year old female who has suffered with a lot of minor ailments that made life uncomfortable to say the least. After bringing up 3 children, I suffered from depression brought on by what I thought was burnout. I have been taking medication for this for over 20 years, on and off. A couple of friends told me about Mickel Therapy and my sister actually met Fiona Watson and recommended her to me. The therapy itself is so simple, you begin to wonder why you haven’t been doing it all your life. But at the same time, it is difficult to put into practice. The back up of the therapist is crucial. Every time, I came to Fiona with an issue, she knew exactly what I was talking about and knew the next step. Even if I felt I was going backwards or more issues arose, it actually meant I was going forward. I have now learnt that it is okay to be good to myself instead of thinking I should be all things to all people. I actually say No now. It has made a tough situation much easier to deal with.
Nothing has changed except me! My frequent headaches which rendered me unable to do anything are a thing of the past and now if I get one at all I am able to deal with it better. My medication has been lowered and I am in a much happier place. During the therapy I was diagnosed by my doctor as having osteoarthritis. I have been able to pace myself properly and without medication, been able to minimise the discomfort. I would recommend this therapy to everyone. But particularly any who are suffering from depression, joint pain, headaches, fatigue. All of which I suffered from, but now have minimised or disappeared all together.
