Website: The Holistic Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME Service

Address: 1053 Great Western Road, Glasgow, G120NR
Telephone: 0141 2111616
“This is a purely therapeutic programme and only patients who have undergone appropriate investigations and have been diagnosed with CFS/ME are usually put into the care of the CFS/ME team.
“Patients with severe fatigue associated with a long term chronic condition get a similar (integrative care) assessment but not by a member of the CFS/ME team. However they will also access a unique personal package of care as a result of the integrative care assessment.
“MBCT (Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy) is useful in long term chronic conditions, anxiety and depression and addiction. Our practitioners are qualified in Integrative Care approach and MBCT/MBSR.
“First there is a meeting with a member of the Holistic/CFS/ME team (up to 9 mins). During this session we discuss how the condition impacts on all areas of the patient’s life, emotional, social, spiritual, physical and financial, and produce a unique package of therapies for that individual with their input so that a timeline of care can be produced.
“For example: A patient may initially access a self-help education programme or a physiotherapy assessment, followed by one or two complementary therapies e.g. acupuncture, homeopathy and ending with a course of MBCT if the programme suitable for the candidate.
“As patients with CFS/ME can have a wide range of symptoms and depth of fatigue, one plan cannot suit every case. That is why our unique person-centred approach bases the therapy on their unique physical, mental and emotional state.”
