Welcome to Self-Help-Mate

My name is Maria Whiteley,  founder of Self Help Mate.

Self Help Mate was founded in 2009 in the North East of England to help sufferers of emotional health conditions which, because emotion is experienced in the body, affects our physiological wellbeing as well as our mental health.

In that year I trained in the Mickeltherapy technique, developed by Dr David Mickel and Psychologist Kyle Davies .

 During my training I learned that Mickeltherapy takes the view that the Hypothalamus gland, which is the master regulatory gland of the body, is in “overdrive” when a person experiences symptoms of conditions such as M. E. ( Myalgic Encephalomyelitis ), CFS  (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), Fibromyalgia,IBS  (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) - all conditions which have emotion at their origin.

The hypothalamus regulates the Endocrine system which in turn supplies our bodies with hormones needed by every cell and organ of the body to be able to function healthily.

It is situated in the limbic system of the brain which controls emotions, behaviour, moods, motivation, and pain and pleasure sensation.

It also regulates :

Body Temperature

Appetite

Digestion

Circulation

Sleep Patterns

 Body Fluids (Homeostasis)

 Metabolising of Fats and Sugars.

I am happy to say that I have been successful in treating people with these conditions since 2009 here in the North East of England.

The Mickeltherapy technique is also able to treat conditions such as

Anxiety and Depression

 because it has the benefit of being a Talking Therapy

 (though it is not Psychotherapy , or a form of Counselling or CBT).

Please see the video of Dr David Mickel explaining the function and role of the hypothalamus with regard to the symptoms you may be experiencing.

Mickeltherapy takes the view that because the Hypothalamus regulates the rate at which the body functions, it can overwork and place unnecessary demand on the physiology of the body when under stress and the rate at which the hypothalamus functions can become “stuck” there until there is a change in the “experience” of life in the individual.

As an experienced Mickeltherapist I am able to help clients with releasing their symptoms through this talking therapy.  The Hypothalamus can function naturally again, without the need for further interventions, when the client is able to embrace the tools of Mickeltherapy.

Here is a video client testimonial

Since 2009 I have been gently helping people to rediscover how to become comfortable "within", being with them through the release of symptoms of ill–health, helping them to relax and to release the need to be so hard on themselves.

In my experience treating clients, having been trained to use the Mickeltherapy technique, I have come to see that how a person is using their own innate personal wisdom is what may determine their state of health and wellbeing at any given point in their life.

I offer services available through Self Help Mate to facilitate release of the symptoms of ill-health, helping clients to feel well again. Then, once again feeling at ease within themselves, they may choose to take the next steps, allowing the possibility of becoming the best expression of themselves that they want to be.

 Here is a testimonial from a client well after many years of suffering symptoms of CFS

 "I first met Maria in October. At this point, I had been ill for over a year and a half and at my worst I had been bedridden for a month barely able to move. Prior to this, I had spent several years with fluctuating ongoing illness and major debilitating fatigue. Maria has played a vital role in helping me regain my health, and more importantly regain my spirit and joy in life. Her practical tips have helped me see the connection between my fatigue and the ways I engage with the outside world. Maria is a loving and caring person who has transformed how I live and has stressed the importance of being true to my spirit. I can't thank her enough. I highly recommend Maria and feel blessed to have met her. "
