ME and CFS Personal Stories 

Below you will find some personal stories and testimonials of people who have worked with both Sarah and Ashley to support their wellbeing during ME, CFS, PVFS or Fibromyalgia.

Although many of the stories describe quite dramatic recoveries, these stories do not represent of all of the people who we've worked with. It is also common for people to experience a more steady improvement over a longer period - anything from a few months to a couple of years. Sarah has added her personal experience which took place over 12 months to 18 months - she has remained fully recovered since.

Many people choose not to share their stories. Sharing your story is a very personal thing, and after a more prolonged experience, many just want to move on. However, we are delighted to be able to share stories and feedback from over 30 people - see below. To view each story in full, click on the link next to the person. To ensure our duty of care to you we ask you to read our disclaimer at the bottom of the page

Endorsement: Over the years I have known and worked with Ashley Meyer I have found his therapeutic style amongst the most effective I have seen. He is intelligent, compassionate and highly intuitive. I have referred numerous clients to him and his team and the feedback I receive is consistently exemplary. Ashley's considerable experience and expertise in the field of CFS is, in my opinion, second to none. His approach is non-judgemental and he is committed to helping sufferers deal effectively with the underlying emotional drivers and unresolved psychic conflicts that often underpin the disorder. Fundamentally, he works with clients towards a ‘cure’ rather than settling on the goal of helping them to cope better – this is what sets him and his exciting new initiative apart from the crowd. I can confidently recommend and endorse the work of You Wellbeing.
