My practice is based on the capacity of innovative therapies to eliminate or reduce 

chronic pain, chronic health problems and distress caused by traumatic experiences.

Effective therapy  for chronic pain, chronic health problems and trauma

Chronic pain is one of the main reasons people visit their GP.   In many cases, your health care providers will find the physical cause of your pain or chronic health problems and offer effective treatments.  However, it is quite common for your doctors to say they cannot find the cause of your chronic condition.  The conditions for which physical causes cannot be found include (but are not limited to):

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS),

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD),

  • Fibromyalgia,

  • Chronic fatigue (CF),

  • Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS) and other types of chronic pelvic pain,

  • Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS),

  • Some cases of Chronic Low Back Pain,

  • Some cases of musculoskeletal pain.

There are also many examples of chronic pain which do not fit into these categories.

Most people who suffer one of these conditions report having been exposed to traumatic experiences or prolonged stress.  The therapies I offer are frequently successful in markedly reducing or completely eliminating the symptoms of these chronic conditions because they treat the underlying trauma and stress.  When the trauma is resolved, the pain goes away.

Testimonials  April 2024

For almost two decades I struggled with both physical and mental health issues including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, IBS, depression and anxiety. When living in pain became unbearable, I found my way to Michael who helped me to understand how all of these conditions were related to past trauma and stress. Michael helped me to process these events and learn how to better manage stress using the Comprehensive Resource Model, and within a short period of time my pain began to decrease. I am now completely pain-free, and actually struggle to remember what it felt like to have pain throughout my entire body, even though it went on for so many years! Michael is extremely knowledgeable in the area of trauma and its effect on the brain and nervous system, and was always happy to answer my many questions about this. He is infinitely patient with a calming, compassionate demeanour which is exactly what I needed in a therapist. I am now living a very full and busy life, have plenty of energy and I am expecting my first child in a few months, something I never thought I would be capable of due to my health issues. I would recommend Michael to anyone who is ready to process their trauma and move on to a better way of life without pain and illness.

I have been seeing Michael for over a year for PTSD and can highly recommend him as an excellent therapist. He took the time initially to explain his approach in detail, ensuring all my questions were answered, and thoughtfully delivered therapy tailored to my needs and requests. Several times during the treatment I had flares of my condition, and Michael was always happy to adjust his approach and make himself available to ensure I did not deteriorate. When I needed to transition from face-to-face to online sessions for health reasons, Michael was happy to oblige, and I did not find the online sessions any less effective. I wish I had seen Michael sooner. My PTSD is now resolved (thanks largely to Michael), but I have no doubt that if I were to ever deteriorate again, that Michael will be there for me again, in his customary calm, compassionate, and considered way. I have recommended Michael to friends and family.
