Hi there. My name is Katherine Owen.
(I also use the pen name of Katherine T Owen to distinguish me from the American novelist of the same name.)
I have lived with chronic illness since the age of 23. The same illness has shifted from a diagnosis of post viral fatigue syndrome to Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Along the way I have also been 'mapped' as having fibromyalgia.
Through the worst 14 years, I had little speech and was unable to feed myself.
I experienced dramatic healing – a significant improvement in health – in 2008.
I continue to live with health challenges and I am mostly in the house.
Nonetheless, I celebrate a BIG :-) life of friendship, hugs, church, poetry, writing, music, art and trips to see the beautiful Wiltshire landscape around me.
I run this website www.healingcfsme.com on ‘healing within and beyond CFS/ME’.
I offer you two free e-books . <The 7 Stages of Grief of Chronic Illness> is available on this website.
<Releasing Judgment> (over 2,500 downloads at the time of writing ) is available on another website.
I am working on several books in the categories of spirituality, healing and psychology.
I contributed a chapter to the Amazon best selling book <Radiant
I have given talks on spirituality in Swansea, London, Oxford and Swindon. I have been a radio show guest on BBC Wiltshire, various radio shows, online radio shows, local television and on youtube.
I qualified as a "competent communicator" at
Thamesdown Toastmasters in Swindon.
My poetry has been published in various publications including the following:
Performances include <Travellers without Baggage> and <Hidden Paths> both of which combined poetry with music and featured in the Swindon Festival of Literature as well as in other venues in SouthWest England.
I am a proud member of Poetry Swindon – my local, and rather
wonderful, poetry society.
The annual Swindon festival of poetry is in October.
I am qualified in Level 1 Counselling.
For ongoing self healing, I draw on a range of techniques which include the following:
· Releasing Judgment. My own method as shared in the free ebook on offer above.
· Positive and structured self talk
· NLP practices – I am a
qualified as a practitioner at diploma level
· the Sedona Method, the Releasing Technique and my own work based on the work of Lester Levinson
· EFT or tapping
· the Journey process
· inner child work
· the Lightning Process. (I have trained in it, but I am not a trainer.)
I have been pursuing personal development and living the spiritual path for over 25 years.
I have been through some pretty hairy circumstances - both in relationship with others, with illness and with myself!
