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.
