If you suffer from fatigue, sensory overwhelm, ‘tired and wired’, busy mind, chronic tension, brain fog, anxiety, insomnia, or pain, this programme will teach you how to calm and re-balance your body and mind and help you to regain a sense of inner well-being.
You’ll learn the role the Autonomic Nervous System plays in the management of symptoms, and will be taught self-soothing techniques to activate your body’s natural healing mechanisms. You’ll learn what is likely to increase your symptoms, what you can do to lower them, and how to put your body in the ‘optimum state for healing’.
The programme will help you develop the emotional and psychological resources needed to manage your condition on a day-to-day basis, and will under-pin your long term recovery. Whatever your condition and level of mobility, the approach of this course supports you as an individual. By the end of the programme, you’ll have gained a set of solid self-help tools to support your health and well-being. You will also have learnt how to engage with yourself and life in a more mindful and compassionate way to help you feel more fulfilled and at ease with yourself.
The programme takes into account the cognitive impairment and hypersensitivity that can often occur through illness. All information is therefore presented slowly, calmly and clearly and each of the twelve modules can be completed at your own pace. As an optional learning aide, we’ve included a PDF document of the content in each module for you to print and then read at your own pace, should you wish, to act as a reminder of what you’ve learnt and help you digest the information more easily. We’ve also provided a Frequently Asked Questions PDF document.

Reviews for Conscious Process
"With Linda's gentle voice and down-to-earth approach, Conscious Process is a wonderful guide for those of us with a chronic condition. Even though I’m only on module one, I can feel some definite benefits. The day-to-day awareness tips are really useful and a definite aid to calming the system." - Jacqui Barsky
"The course is split into easily absorbable sections that really help to break the patterns that drive the overdriven/wired state of stress that has become my norm. It is helping me create a more balanced body/mind relationship." - James Gibson
"The more I listen to Conscious Process the more it gives. Linda has created a wonderful resource for recovery from ME/CFS and Chronic Illness. Thank you Linda!" - Sam
"A wonderful resource for people with M.E. - I only wish I had known about it 20 years ago" - Beth Fornaschon
"This is a real gem of a course! Each module is split into 3 short sections, which is great for people like myself who become easily fatigued. It is easy to listen to, informative, has great tips to incorporate into one’s daily routine. I would highly recommend it for all, whether new to meditation or those with experience" - Teresa Elliott
"Conscious Process is a wonderful resource to manage stress and the symptoms of any chronic illness. The course is extremely well structured. The course is divided into modules, each of which contain three useful explanatory PDFs and three separate mp3 tracks with reflections, meditations/relaxation sessions. Each session is fairly short but very powerful. Being short, the sessions are excellent for those of us who are unwell with pain, illness or stress and have limited concentration."
I am so impressed with Linda’s understanding of our thought processes and how she gently guides us away from any negativity into a more calm and relaxed state. Even after many years of practising mindfulness and relaxation techniques, I still find immense value and enjoyment in Linda’s work. She always seems to say the right words at the right time – listening to it, it’s as though the course was written just for me. I shall continue to use the course to maintain inner calm and peace of mind and to broaden my mindfulness practice. Thank you, Linda, for producing such a valuable and accessible resource. I wholeheartedly recommend the course." - Jan Sadler, MBE
"This course is excellent – extremely well thought through and organised so that following it is straight forward, informative and a pleasure. In the meditations Linda’s voice is soothing, caring and articulate. The pacing has been perfect for me. I feel that each of my senses is involved with the meditations and coaching input. This means my learning is deep and meaningful and I am trusting that the tools I am gaining will help me throughout the rest of my life. This is no ordinary meditation course. It is very special. Thank you Linda." - Delcia McNeil, Cumbria
“I’ve just completed your ‘Conscious Process’ course. I am healing myself from a chronic auto immune condition and I have found the course immensely useful Thank you. Your meditations have brought me back to base so many times on my journey Linda”. - Caroline Gregory
“..it is with great relief that I have stumbled upon this insightful treatment approach.. I recover more quickly from stressors - both physical and emotional -and can think more clearly, restoring my self-confidence. I would recommend it even for sceptics of the mind-body connection who focus on purely physical interventions. This kind of prescription requires effort and commitment but the relief can be life-changing.” - Ani Sara Delmont
“I have lived with M.E. for over 30 years now after a series of viral infections. The condition has progressively worsened over the years and I thought I had tried every avenue open to me so I was delighted to come across your Conscious Process programme almost by accident. I used the free trial first of all and was amazed by how much more relaxed my body felt yet at the same time energised. I find your voice very soothing and reassuring, as if you are in the room with me… I have recommended the programme on a couple of FB sites as it certainly makes me feel more in control of my condition. Thank you very much for producing it and I hope it is able to help others as it has me”. - Isabel Webster
