Based on an 8-week Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy programme, this guide addresses the increasing need for adapted mindfulness in the management of ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, Long Covid, and other chronic fatigue conditions.

Using current understanding and theoretical approaches to Long Covid and ME/ CFS, this book allows practitioners to understand how they can adapt their teaching to accommodate patients with specific needs and challenges, including adaptations for brain fog, approaches to rest, movement, daily activity and accompanying difficult thoughts and emotions. Contributions from people who manage ME, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue through mindfulness are included alongside practical guidance and detailed week-by-week session plans whether that's in-person or online. Filled with helpful diagrams and illustrations, practitioners can use this guide to greatly widen the scope of who they can reach and gently empower clients living with often isolating conditions on how to apply this approach in the long-term to their everyday lives.

  • Nigel Wellings MA, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist

    Fiona McKechnie's book is a very welcome resource and inspiration for those of us that work with deep fatigue in our patients and in ourselves. Drawing upon the established models of MBSR and MBCT, that deeply cultivate the qualities of calm and insight, curiosity, acceptance and compassion, she demonstrates how hope and change may be found in the face of the seemingly intractable.
  • Professor Diane L Cox, Professor Emerita of Occupational Therapy, University of Cumbria and Royal College of Occupational Therapists Chair of Council (June 2019-June 2022).

    This book is timely and well written ...The author has extensive knowledge of supporting people with fatiguing illnesses. The breakdown of the programme with session content is very comprehensive. There is a thorough resources and reference list for those wanting to explore the content and concepts further. I would highly recommend this book to those with fatiguing illness, practitioners, and healthcare professionals to understand and practice mindfulness-based therapy.
