Assessment and Treatment for Chronic Fatigue

A FREE 15 minute chat by telephone, Skype or face to face

During this we will discuss your situation and what pain or fatigue symptoms you are experiencing. It gives an opportunity to explain the treatment in more detail, answer any questions you may have and decide which course of treatment would be the most appropriate. We will also be able to find out what you would hope to achieve from having treatment with us.
From this we can establish what the best course of action will be for you.
This may include:
  • Further reading around the subject of mind-body therapy to ensure a clear understanding of it - often this is a new concept to people and it takes a little time to get your head round. A deeper look into the approach and its success stories may be needed to reassure you that it is authentic and effective. It's important that you feel this approach is right for you before you start the assessment process.
  • Starting the assessment process.
  • A recommendation of an alternative approach - we may agree that the mind-body approach really isn't right for you for a number of reasons. If you lack commitment to your recovery then the approach is not as effective. Sometimes you need to look into different approaches that may work better for you.
  • Sometimes it's just not the right time for you due to finance, family or personal issues for example. It may be that you need to revisit it in a month or so.

Option 1: Single treatment session using OldPain2Go - £100 face to face or by Skype

Many conditions can be successfully treated using Steven Blakes OldPain2GoR methodology. You can find out more about OldPain2Go here.
The session will consist of a brief assessment followed by a treatment session that will last approximately an hour.
We would always recommend you consult your GP to obtain a diagnosis prior to assessment with Chiron to rule out any acute injuries or malignant conditions.

Option 2: Mind-body Approach using SIRPA – £70 assessment, £40 per hour treatment session

If OldPain2Go is not suitable for your particular problems, or you do not feel it is right for you, you can follow a more in-depth treatment process.
Assessment is a two-part process:
  1. You will be asked to complete written assessment forms. Once these are completed they will be analysed.
  2. We will then meet face to face or by Skype to discuss these in more detail in order to identify key events and triggers for your symptoms.This would be expected to take approximately 90 minutes.
The information from the written and face to face assessments will form the basis of your treatment plan.
During treatment sessions you will learn a range of strategies to incorporate into your daily life that reduce pain, help manage fatigue and improve a whole host of other chronic health problems (see Can we help You? for examples). Treatment uses Occupational Therapy, SIRPA's mind-body approach and a range of other mind-body treatments - you can find more information about this in Chiron's Treatment Programme.
We will also further explore potential issues that may be contributing to your ill-health and find ways to best deal with them.
The techniques used within the programme are simple to learn and to use, but do require regular use and a commitment to your own recovery in order to be effective. The process is very much about you applying the strategies taught in order to take control of your health again and achieve success.
However, you set the pace of your treatment so there's no worry about being unable to keep up due to your fatigue or other health issues.
Free resources are available to get you started.
We would always recommend you consult your GP to obtain a diagnosis prior to assessment with Chiron to rule out any acute injuries or malignant conditions.
We also recommend you find out more about Mind-Body Syndrome by reading one of the recommended texts prior to assessment.
