Purpose Statement

To learn foundation principles to assist participants to navigate the ME/CFS/FM journey and create an individual road-map to support increasing health and wellness.

Endorsed by NZ’s leading authority on CFS/ME in NZ, Doctor Ros Vallings.

Course Structure

The in-person programme is two hours fortnightly (in total 10 workshops) based at the premises of Complex Chronic Illness Support, with a follow-on 5 workshops to reinforce key learnings and equip participants with the skills to independently move forward.

The Towards Wellness Hub is a self-directed online version of the course.  This can be done in the comfort of your own home, with the support of a trained Facilitator just a phonecall or email away.  There will be time to meet others online who are going through the same journey as you.
