Reverse Therapy is an educational process enabling you to discover what your body has been telling you for a long time & to then take action to restore health & wellbeing.

Reverse Therapy is based upon years of research By Dr. John Eaton into the body’s natural intelligence, BodyMind, & its healing processes. BodyMind communicates with us through sensations, feelings, moods & emotions. When, however, these are ignored BodyMind has to turn up the volume thereby creating symptoms. Reverse Therapy teaches clients how to understand & work with BodyMind so that the body no longer needs to produce symptoms in order to guide, protect or warn the individual.

Reverse Therapy is a true breakthrough in the approach to & treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/M.E. & Fibromyalgia because it considers these conditions to arise from a glandular dysfunction which, in turn, produces symptoms. This imbalance is the result of the hypothalamus in the brain overworking the Pituitary & Adrenal glands. This naturally affects many body systems. Initially BodyMind sends feelings, moods & emotions to let the person know not all is well. Symptoms appear later on & are a call to action.

Reverse Therapy can also effectively treat & resolve or reduce the symptoms of many other conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome & other Digestive/Bowel disturbances, Skin problems such as Eczema & Psoriasis, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Depression, Eating disorders, Post Traumatic Stress, Non Specific Pain (e.g. Migraine), Addiction (drugs & alcohol) & some Auto-Immune problems.

Reverse Therapy is neither counselling nor psychotherapy. It is a BodyMind healing process which comes about when HeadMind listens to BodyMind & they work in attunement rather than in isolation from each other, HeadMind being our intellectual intelligence. For this to happen, with tuition & guidance from your practitioner, you begin to understand & work with symptoms & emotions that are guiding you to meet your needs. This, in turn, leads you to notice & take action upon the feelings or more subtle emotions before actual symptoms occur, thus reducing the body’s need to send symptoms in the first place.

Reverse Therapy is now available for maximising & maintaining good general health & wellbeing. You do not necessarily have to have a health problem to enjoy the benefits of Reverse Therapy - see 'The Wellbeing Programme'


Reverse Therapy is a specialised treatment that requires no medication, supplements or specific dietary changes. Sessions consist of face to face consultations lasting one to one & a half hours, typically every 2, 3 or 4 weeks depending upon need.

Reverse Therapy works by mutually collaborating with the client in order to understand what BodyMind is trying to tell them through the symptoms. There are 3 steps to this:-

1. To teach the client how to connect with BodyMind & to BodyMind’s communications using simple
body-focusing & awareness techniques.

2. To investigate the history & particularly the onset of symptoms plus recent situations when symptoms were
re-triggered or made stronger.

3. To then discover the ‘symptom message’ - the specific, corrective actions BodyMind is calling for in order to dissolve the state of ‘dis-ease'. From here the client explores different actions & activities designed to remove the body’s need to send symptoms as warning signals, using a journal to track success in reducing symptoms.

This communication system is in effect a demonstration of bodymind’s intelligence, an intelligence wise enough to seek wellness & one that can potentially keep us healthy & disease free’ - Candace B.

INTRODUCING THE WELLBEING PROGRAMME - An innovation in Health Coaching to maximise and maintain balance and wellbeing in your life today

Many people find themselves exposed to pressures in their personal, social and working life. If these pressures are left unresolved for too long, this can lead to symptoms of what, traditionally, has been called ‘Stress’.

In Reverse Therapy we regard ‘Stress’ as the symptomatic state that ensues when our body notices we have yet to overcome emotional challenges. In such situations BodyMind (our body’s inner wisdom) uses emotions and gut feelings to guide us to take action to resolve the issue. Typically, this involves speaking up about our needs and doing activities that restore balance.

If these emotional messages are not acted upon and the demands upon us mount up we may experience a ‘pressure cooker’ effect – an agitated, uncomfortable state in which we can blow up over relatively small problems which push us over the edge. At this point the body is now starting to use symptoms to get our urgent attention such as headaches, pain, fatigue, digestive or skin problems and sleeplessness.

Since Dr. Eaton’s development of Reverse Therapy, practitioners trained by him have established an 80% success rate in helping individuals reverse the symptoms of many ‘non-specific’ illnesses including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, I.B.S. and Depression. Those who have recovered generally have a ‘buzz’ for life which their friends have commented on and asked about. It is because of this that we have created The Wellbeing Programme to teach individuals to listen to and act on their BodyMind before their bodies feel it necessary to send harsher messages, stronger symptoms and eventually dis-ease.

The Wellbeing Programme has been designed for those undergoing life challenges, whether at work, in family life or in relationships and who want to maintain or improve their health.

The purpose of the Programme is for you to regain balance and wellbeing through listening to your body and acting on its messages. I will help you connect with your BodyMind, listen to emotions and symptom-messages and act on them promptly. They will help you understand how HeadMind (that internal voice) can disconnect from the emotions, frustrate decisions, create worry and self-doubt and block effective action. I will also teach you strategies for overcoming and bypassing HeadMind so that you can act confidently and effectively on the pressures that surround you. An important part of this process is to learn our tried and tested ways to assert yourself constructively with others.
