Pamela Rose

Personalised Fatigue Coach, Pacing Coach

Pamela blends neuroscience with practical lifestyle advice to help clients heal. What I really love about Pamela is that she knows everyone’s life situation and experience of fatigue is different and tailors her framework for each client. 

Pamela herself healed from ME/CFS after a 7-year journey, and now is a highly-sought-after ME/CFS pacing coach. She knows that extreme fatigue can rob you of the life you want to live and leave you feeling desperate because you’re unable to cope with even basic daily tasks. 

She is an encouraging presence with many tools up her sleeve. Pamela’s ‘Life Rescue’ framework applies her signature ‘deal and heal’ approach.

Pamela Rose gives clients a full understanding of 1. How to manage their energy 2. learn how to cope better 3. learn how to effectively and efficiently communicate their needs 4. and feel like life is worth living again. Many people have told me Pamela’s pacing advice has been a game-changer.

Pamela offers 1-to-1 coaching via Zoom and at her office in Bristol during normal times, pacing workshops, and has a highly-rated 3-Week Rescue Course (it’s both live and recorded for those who want to do it in their own time). 

Here is my written interview with Pamela:

Pamela Rose written interview

Here is a news article featuring one of Pamela’s clients, Luke, with Long Covid in November 2020 on learning the importance of real rest and here is a more recent video of Luke’s (almost) recovery storyUpdate: As of November 2021, Luke considers himself fully recovered.

Note: Pamela currently has a 1-month waitlist for new UK/EU individual clients and 2 months for US clients, since her early evenings book up fast. You can contact Pamela to get on her waitlist for personal coaching and learn more about her other programs on her website.

Amy Davies

Somatic Embodiment Coach

Using a body-oriented approach, Amy guides her clients on pacing and energy management. This includes learning how to say no and really feel good about it, building self worth, being kind to yourself, connecting to your true needs and desires, growing supportive relationships, and more. 

Amy also helps guide and support clients into accessing and feeling their feelings, rather than problem solving them.

Her coaching is offered online over Zoom and charged at £75 per hour or £37.50 per 30 mins.

What I do (Amy’s own words):

I work with a wide range of clients of all ages and backgrounds – from those bed-bound from pain, fatigue, illness or burnout to those with busy and active lifestyles. We work with the body, not just the mind, to explore a felt sense of new options in our ways of being and relating. This approach can be particularly helpful if you are experiencing nervous system dysregulation (a common aspect of pain and fatigue conditions which fuels symptoms). 

Sessions involve talking along with some gentle explorations in posture, movement, and breath. The work is not athletic (no yoga mat or leggings are required) and can be tailored to however you are on the day (e.g. you can sit, stand, or lie down in bed). You are in full choice and can say yes or no to anything offered in the session. This work is gentle, helping you recognise and process emotions and allowing space for integration to ensure lasting change. 

About Me:

I’m Amy. A certified and fully insured Embodiment Coach, 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher and a Mindfulness Meditation Facilitator. I often refer to myself as a ‘recovering over-doer’. Living in my body, rather than my head is something that I have had to work on over the years. I began coaching people in my former management roles in media organisations. It was here, I first trained as a mental health first aider. 

In 2018, I developed a pain and fatigue condition. As life as I knew it fell apart, I committed to healing and building an authentic life for myself. My experience was a real wake up call into what was and was not working for me in my ‘old life’. Already studying yoga, I became fascinated with learning about the nervous system, modern pain science, and the impact of chronic stress and trauma. 

Once well enough, I took additional training to develop my repertoire of skills, so I could support people going through their own challenges. I am always learning and believe there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. 

Whilst this journey is an incredibly challenging one (something I do not sugar coat), it can be a real invitation for change. To find more joy and ease. To cultivate embodied resilience in navigating life’s many challenges, rather than constantly trying to force yourself to push through. To find and come home to who you truly are and build a supportive, nourishing, authentic life and relationships.

Lauren Windas

Clinical Nutritionist, Licensed Naturopath & NLP Practitioner

I have gotten multiple emails from Lauren’s clients about how helpful and amazing she is.

Lauren is a registered and licensed Nutritionist, Naturopath, and NLP practitioner. She operates from her clinic in London, as well as offering online consultations for those based elsewhere.

Having recovered from M.E / CFS herself, Lauren has helped countless clients to recover and reclaim their health back. She is renowned for her multidisciplinary skillset, covering all of the key pillars that are essential for the recovery process. This includes targeted nutrition, functional testing, supplemental protocols, as well as the tools of NLP and mindset coaching to encompass a 360 degree approach to health rehabilitation.

As well as her Nutrition & Naturopathy 1:1 consultations, Lauren also offers a hugely popular 18-week online group mindset coaching program for people with M.E. / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Here is Lauren’s full recovery story on my friend Raelan Agle’s channel:


Lorrie Rivers

Holistic Health Recovery Coach

I admire how Lorrie is doing so much to help the Long Covid and ME/CFS community. 

After healing from severe ME/CFS that kept her housebound and bedbound for 8+ years in her 20s, Lorrie began helping others. She recognized there were some things to Do and things to Not do in order to recover and/or live a full life within one’s health journey.

Through her own experience and from working with hundreds of clients over the past 20 years, she developed the step-by-step 8 week Relief & Transformation: Managing Long Covid and ME/CFS online course. This course is what she herself wished she had so many years ago. Here is her resources page where you can learn more and join the waitlist for her course.

She now also offers a Membership Relief & Transformation Program for continued support for those who complete the course. It’s a slower pace, features a private online community, and meets once a month for group coaching (as opposed to once a week with the full 8 week course).

Lorrie is also a certified yoga instructor and created the Yoga + Strength Training for Long Covid and ME/CFS online program, to help people very gently move their body without setbacks. She is also a best-selling co-author with Deepak Chopra and Wayne Dyer.

Lorrie hosts the Holistic Healing for Long-Covid and ME/CFS summit (July 7 – 17, 2022). The speakers include leading medical and holistic professionals as well as those on the journey and people who have recovered. You can access last years’ Zoom recordings and full transcripts for a small fee here.

This wonderful summit covers so many aspects of healing for your consideration!

Here is Lorrie’s full recovery story on Raelan’s channel:

Chris headshot

Chris Jamieson

CFS/ME Recovery Mentor and Coach

Chris is a special needs teacher who mentors people with CFS in his part-time, after going through his own 4-year journey. He completed a marathon in March 2021 to raise awareness for CFS. He’s a salt-of-the-earth guy with a wealth of practical and insightful recovery knowledge. Chris in his own words:

One thing I remember when going through CFS/M.E for 4 years was the abundance of information (both positive and negative) and how it can all be quite confusing and complicated.

Working with me 1 on 1, I’m going to keep it simple and stick to four key pillars of CFS/M.E recovery/healing which involves:

    1. Focusing on mindset and mental health through daily meditation, observing your thoughts, and daily journaling.
    2. Following a diet that works well for your gut health and eating based on Ayurvedic principles for your body type (for informative purposes only)
    3. Creating optimal conditions for sleep
    4. Restorative movement

Coaching calls will be customized for your current health and progression.

After overcoming CFS, all I want to do, from the bottom of my heart, is to give back and help other sufferers be able to achieve their best life like I’ve been able to.

Learn more about Chris and book him to be Your coach on his new coaching website. He has many wonderful client testimonials. You can find him on Instagram @healingwithrocdoc38.

Dr. Cathleen King Neuroplasticity Coach

Dr. Cathleen King, DPT

Neuroplasticity and Somatic Healing Transformation Coach

I have heard multiple wonderful reviews from people who were mentored by Dr. Cat. She herself healed from severe CFS and Chronic Lyme, which she had for over a decade.

Dr. Cathleen King is a doctor of physical therapy, neuroscience educator, intuitive healer, and a busy mom. Her superpower is helping people with chronic health conditions see the patterns that have bound them, resolve their subconscious resistance, and create transformational life changes.

Cathleen found her own liberation from over a decade of debilitating chronic Lyme disease, mold illness, microbiome imbalance, chronic fatigue, PTSD and a host of other challenges through combining her medical background with her intuitive healing skills.

She is the founder of Primal Trust, a unique brain retraining transformation program that combines the latest neuroscience and somatic healing techniques to help others reclaim vibrant health. 

She has a newly revamped, comprehensive nervous system regulation program called “Level 1: Regulate” (Level 1 was formerly called “Creating Calm,” and was more of a simple toolkit). It includes scientific explanations behind chronic illness. It includes both brain retraining and somatic bodywork.

Her advanced course, “Level 2: Primal Trust Mentorship – Integrate,” is for people who went through Level 1, who want liberation from their past limitations and are ready to go deeper. In this 5 month series, she offers a transformational roadmap to identify your values, live your values, and resolve subconscious resistance. 

Dr. Cat’s offering costs $96/month, for access to all program levels and materials (note: you are directed to first go through Level 1). The portal includes 100 hours of supplemental video (including recordings of old classes.

You can join a peer led study group and attend live Q&A’s when the course is live (as of November 2022, Dr. Cat is teaching Level 1: Regulate, and will teach Level 2: Integrate in Spring 2023). Members have access to optional drop-in Zoom sessions from other practitioners and members throughout the week (a monthly grief circle, sound bath healing, boundaries class, Zoom dance parties). 

Here is my video interview with Dr. Cathleen King:

Alina Brain Gardening

Alina Bachmann

Transformational Teacher & Creator of Brain Gardening

I love how Alina combines her artistic talents, neuroscience training, and powerful personal experience to help others heal and thrive. 

Alina is a recovered chronic illness warrior and Brain Gardener™. She has personally healed over 50 chronic conditions in herself, including C-PTSD, POTS, CIRS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, anxiety, brain fog, countless chemical and sensory sensitivities, as well as Benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome.

Alina developed limbic system impairment in childhood in the midst of adverse experiences and used art as a buffer until her life as an award-winning artist and information designer became eclipsed by declining health. Brain retraining was the missing piece to restore wholeness and wellness. Alina wanted to help others harvest physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual wellness through neuroplasticity.

In 2020, she launched Brain Gardening™ after getting certified in Reiki and Integrative Sound & Music Healing and receiving training from world experts in epigenetics, the autonomic nervous system, and somatic healing, including Drs. Bruce Lipton, Stephen Porges, Deb Dana and more. 

Alina’s clients include people actively doing a neuroplasticity program who seek additional coaching support for specific healing goals, people with childhood trauma, and people open to creative healing approaches.

Terese Millhouse

Fatigue Recovery Coach

Terese is a wealth of natural wellness and life wisdom who had her own 7-year journey with ME/CFS. I hope to join her for tea one day.

Terese specializes in supporting women with ME/CFS and Thyroid Disease, by complementing their current western medicine treatment with natural methods to promote wholistic self healing.

Terese is a mum, widow, Natural Wellness Coach, and Chronic Fatigue survivor. After being told there was nothing more to be done and she had to ‘manage ME/CFS for the rest of her life’ at just 36 years of age, Terese decided not to settle for that diagnosis and took back control of her health rather than let her health control her. Once she made that decision after seven years of CFS, Terese healed fully in 6 months, using natural methods. Now Terese supports other women to do the same and help them find renewed energy in their fight to go from chronic to cured, naturally.

Terese has one-on-one sessions both online and in Hobart, Tasmania where she is based. Her signature Sanctuary of Balanced Wellness program has 4-week and 3-month options.

Terese is currently accepting clients worldwide and you can book a free 20 minute consult with her on her website

You can now join the wait-list for Terese’s 8-week online group program: ‘Inflamed to Empowered’ (launching January 2022), aimed at those with a viral load or viral-triggered Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:  (Note:  Please consult trusted medical professionals before making any health decisions.)

Here is Terese’s recovery story interview on my friend Raelan Agle’s channel.

Vera Wilhelmsen

Narcissist Abuse Recovery Coach, CFS Recovery Coach

Vera is one of the best people I have ever met. Her light is contagious and her wisdom is well beyond her years. Everyone needs a little Vera in their life!

After surviving 26 years of emotional and psychologic abuse that left her bed-bound with severe CFS/ME for 3 years, Vera has regained her full health and rediscovered her spirit.

Vera specializes in helping victims of psychological abuse and sufferers of chronic illness to reclaim their lives and become their own person.

On April 14, Vera released her first online course: Become Your Own Person for only $39.

It contains 40 short videos and a workbook of journal prompts. Vera teaches you how to trust your gut, how to create healthy boundaries (with scripts!), and even how to create your own style (and much more). I cannot recommend it more for anyone seeking to connect with their true spirit – what I have observed is an important part of healing and thriving.

Vera also has many helpful resources and insights to share for clients interested in learning more about Ayurveda, India’s version of Chinese Medicine which focuses on digestion, for educational purposes. I encourage you to check out her amazing YouTube channel.

You can contact Vera about coaching and learn more at her website:

Gut health enthusiast; Ambassador of Gut & Immune Support Supplements

Rorie is not a coach. She is an inspirational woman and helpful resource.

Rorie has a big “Why” for what she does and that’s her own health story. Rorie healed from her own health, energy, and various autoimmune skin conditions by reducing stress in her life and healing her gut. When Rorie’s gut was off-balance, she relied on medications to mask the symptoms and struggled to control her sugar cravings. When she came across quality products to support her blood sugar stabilization, energy, and gut-health, she began to see results she hadn’t gotten with symptom-maskers or store-bought vitamins. 

Rorie then became a ambassador of this quality brand of supplements(Disclaimer: supplements are not intended to cure any medical condition.)

Our soil just doesn’t have the same healthy nutrients it used to due to modern agriculture practices, including Magnesium. Rorie helped me upgrade a few supplements that support my amazing digestion. I no longer am reliant on a war-chest of supplements, but continue to take a couple good ones. I’ve noticed a difference when I’ve ran out.

Our bodies and biomes are unique, and I encourage you to consult a trusted professional before considering probiotics and supplements and also listen to your gut.

Rorie at age 50 says she feels in the best health of her life. She is an excellent resource and wonderful person. You can find her on Instagram @gutbustingtruths

Jodie Goss

Brain Retraining Specialist and Health Recovery Coach

Jodie is a wonderful, encouraging coach. Many clients say working with her has been life-changing. She supports people with a wide range of conditions that are exacerbated by sympathetic nervous system over-activation. 

Jodie had viral-onset CFS 15 years ago. For 3 years, she tried what seemed like every western and holistic healing modality under the sun without substantial change. Then she heard about the Lightning Process and started exploring how the science of the mind-body connection can be used to rebalance the nervous system and trigger positive physiological change. 

She had already tried meditation and cognitive behavior therapy, but this was something different. The Lightning Process is a program inspired by neuroscience, specifically psychoneuroimmunology, the power of harnessing our mind to support our biochemistry to help switch back on the body’s natural ability to heal. 

Jodie fully healed from CFS not long after taking the Lightning Process in January 2009. She went back to a thriving career in entertainment radio, ran the London Marathon, had two beautiful children, and moved to California. She shares in our interview what inspired her become a Master NLP, a Clinical Hypnotherapist and a Lightning Process practitioner herself years later.

The Lightning Process has inspired several other neuroplasticity programs. It costs more than video-based programs because it’s taught in a live seminar (either in person or via Zoom) and offers personalized coaching support before, during, and after the seminar. 

You can learn more about Jodie, the Lightning Process, and client testimonials by visiting her website and Instagram.

Here is my YouTube interview with Jodie:

Jodie has a helpful new video on Raelan Agle’s channel on recovery strategies for Long-Covid and CFS.  

[Liz note: My blog is not affiliated with the Lightning Process and I do not collect funds for anyone to be on my coaches page or YouTube. I encourage you to do your research to investigate if something is or is not a good fit for you.]

Jason McTiernan

Brain Retraining Specialist

I empower people to become unstuck and finally overcome Chronic Fatigue Syndrome using a science based, self compassionate, mind-body approach to renewed wellness. 

I was stuck in a stress response for over a decade and was pushing myself far too hard even before I got ill.

After 11 years of being mostly housebound with CFS and an array of debilitating symptoms, I fully healed in only 2 months. I went from walking 25 minutes a day on a good day with CFS to climbing mountains in 2 weeks and exploring the southern coast of Portugal.

Your mind is incredibly powerful, you just need to know how to make it work for you, instead of against you!

When you identify and deal with both the patterns that are keeping you stuck right now and the patterns that led to your illness in the first place, true long lasting health can happen.

Now 5 years after fully healing I am healthier and happier than ever, my full time career is helping people worldwide to overcome CFS restoring full wellness with my online brain retraining program which has proven very successful.

Here is Jason’s popular interview on Raelan Agle’s ME/CFS recovery YouTube channel.

Lorelai Yarrow

Creator of Yay! Neuroplasticity Coaching

Lorelai Yarrow (she/they) is a queer neuroplasticity coach, healing hostess and playologist, and creator of Yay! Neuroplasticity Coaching. Multiple people of various ages have shared with me they really benefitted from her refreshingly fun and inspired coaching.

Lorelai specializes in helping others recover from chronic illness, trauma, and codependency through play, laughter, and whimsy. Lorelai believes that the most profound transformation and expansion happens when a person is able to (re)discover their childlike joy and wonder. Astra’s life purpose is to help guide others to find that place of whimsical freedom. 

She recovered from 27+ years of chronic illness (13 years bedridden) using solely the magical powers of neuroplasticity. During her healing journey, she combined a variety of techniques from DNRS, The Gupta Program, the work of Dr. Joe Dispenza, as well as developing many techniques of her own along the way. 

Lorelai recovered from Lyme Disease, co-infections, CIRS, carbon monoxide poisoning, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), OCD, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, insomnia, Bipolar 1 – which included suicidal depression, fibromyalgia, anxiety, POTS, migraines, PTSD, low blood pressure, parasites, disordered eating, dissociation, nausea, gastroparesis, SIBO, leaky gut, noise/light/touch/emf/temperature/multiple chemical sensitivity, traumatic brain injuries, brain fog, vertigo, anosmia (loss of smell), codependency, trauma, and countless other neurological, physiological, emotional, and behavioral symptoms! Sheesh! 

Lorelai is now living life to the fullest! She recently fulfilled her dream of traveling the world and work as a dive instructor. She continues to coach and guide others through the healing process.

I attended a casual, inspiring Zoom event Lorelai spoke at in late 2020 for people who were actively doing a neuroplasticity program. Lorelai told her recovery story. Lorelai was inundated by adults, some into their 70’s telling her “I forgot how to play” and “I don’t know how to create joy in my life. Can you teach me?”  

Lorelai decided to answer the call to help people on their healing journey reconnect with joy.

Here is my written interview with Lorelai (formerly named Astra) and below is our video interview. She shares how hitting rock bottom after going broke trying hundreds of treatments ultimately led to them finding their way out. 

If you are looking for inspiration to tap into joy for your neuroplasticity practice, Lorelai is highly recommended.

Lorelai offers a free 30-minute consultation and is now accepting new clients. You can reach her at
