Overcome ME and Chronic Fatigue


Overcome ME and CFS in Brighton and Hove!

What are ‘ME’ (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), ‘CFS’ (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and ‘PVTS’ (Post-Viral Fatigue Syndrome)?

The three illnesses named above are very similar, and they have devastating effects on the sufferer.
(Some Doctors/researchers believe that that there is only 1 illness – but with three different variations)

For the ease of writing this page and because going through The Thrive Progamme is the same – regardless of what symptoms you have – we’ll group them all under the collective name of ‘CFS’.

CFS causes persistent fatigue (exhaustion) that affects everyday life and doesn’t disappear or lessen with sleep or rest.

Main Symptoms of CFS

The main symptom of CFS is persistent physical and mental exhaustion.

Most people with CFS describe this fatigue as overwhelming and a different type of tiredness from what they’ve experienced before.

Exercising can make symptoms worse. This is called post-exertional malaise, or “payback”. The effect of this is sometimes delayed – for example, if you were to play a game of sport, the resulting fatigue may not develop until a few hours afterwards, or even the next day.

People with severe CFS are unable to do any activities themselves or can only carry out simple daily tasks, such as brushing their teeth. They’re sometimes confined to their bed and are often unable to leave their house

Associated Symptoms

Due to the stressful and debilitating nature of CFS, it tends to cause other symptoms and problems as well, such as:
muscle pain, joint pain, headaches, problems with memory, IBS, sleeping problems, depression, anxiety, balance problems and certain food intolerances.

The Thrive Programme was originally developed specifically to help people with CFS, and the first three people ever to go through our programme, overcame their CFS in an average of just 6 weeks.

How does The Thrive Programme help?

When people go through our programme, they don’t go through it with the intention of changing or overcoming their symptoms, but rather with the intention of learning to thrive. When a person is thriving, they are in control of their beliefs, their emotions (and emotion responses to situations and events), their habitual thinking styles, how they process events and experiences, and much more besides. Lots of research around CFS pinpoints beliefs and unhelpful thinking styles as significant contributors/triggers to the illness… get them under control and you can greatly improve or even recover completely.

There is much debate about the potential causes of CFS, but The Thrive Programme can help you regardless of what caused your symptoms in the first place.

The Thrive Programme is a life-changing psychological training programme that empowers you with the skills, insights and resources in order to take control of your life, overcome any symptoms or problems you have, and thrive!
