About Katherine Owen

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.)

A journey of finding health within illness

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.

Nonetheless, I celebrate a BIG :-) life of friendship, hugs, church, poetry, writing, music, art and trips to see the beautiful Wiltshire landscape around me.

If you live with CFS/ME in Swindon, Wiltshire, you may wish to refer to a list of healing methods available near here.

Non-fiction author

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 Survivor>.


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.


I am the author of <Be Loved, Beloved> - a small beautiful book of spiritual love poems.
Find it on kindle or on lulu.com in paperback.

My poetry has been published in various publications including the following:

  • Winner (one of 6) of Rethink your Mind 2015  and 2017 - I won an ipad on each occasion :-) 
    Mark Morriss of the Bluetones wrote a song with my poem I would not be without you as the lyrics.
    My poem, Salad, features as a spoken word piece on the album Moving Inwards by the band Refuge.
  • Caduceus Journal
  • The Book of Love and Loss
  • Domestic Cherry
  • Imppress
  • Graffiti
  • A Day in the Life of 100 Women
  • The Great British Write off 2015
  • Illustrate Your Point – a publication based on a cooperative project between artists and poets.
  • My poems are published online on a number of websites.
  • Second prize in a global competition for people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, run by Action for M.E.

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.)

Well-Being and Alternative Healing Methods

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

·       Visualisations

·       the Sedona Method, the Releasing Technique and my own work inspired in part by the work of Lester Levinson

·       EFT or tapping (I took an introductory training, but am largely self taught through online classes.)

·       the Journey process (I did a weekend workshop, but had the greatest physical result while working alone.)

·       inner child work (Influenced by reading the work of John Bradshaw, Gill Edwards and Louise Hay)

·       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.
