This week’s show is with John El-Mokadem. John is a Breakthrough Coach, speaker and researcher based in the UK. He has over 16 years’ experience working with clients internationally, providing both personal and corporate coaching, training and mentorship services. John has learned from some of the top success and performance coaches in the world, studying and exploring what enables us to really be at our best, to help guide his clients to make their own breakthroughs.
The transformations John witnesses, are often life changing, as clients gain a deeper understanding of how their minds work, enabling them to experience a healthier, happier, more successful and creative life. John has a speciality for helping people with various chronic health conditions – a by product of his own healing journey from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It was this healing journey that led him to conduct a research study to demonstrate the transformative effects of this approach for other sufferers of CFS. The study has now been accepted for publication in an American Psychological Association journal after a full peer review process. Described by the Journal editor as “ground-breaking”, the study results provide further empirical evidence for the efficacy of Three Principles to help individuals find greater mental and physical health.
In this show we explore what John and I have seen is the real power behind transformation and healing work (previous episodes we’ve recorded about John’s work and own healing journey: Part One and Part Two). John shared his experiences from his years of work supporting people with chronic health conditions and his own healing journey, and I shared what I’ve seen about my own recovery from chronic pain.
We realised after we finished recording, we wanted to emphasise that in no way are either of us saying ‘it’s all in the mind’ or blaming people for their struggles. We both see this with deep compassion and empathy and only hope to provide some illumination on the things we’ve seen can help free people from the grip of chronic conditions.
I really hope you find this a hopeful and helpful episode.
I’d love to know what YOU think about this week’s show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Seeing the health, wellbeing and beauty in people is where much of transformative change comes from.
- What we label as ‘symptoms’ are often a natural part of being human and don’t need to mean anything untoward.
- Experiencing the space of peace and pure awareness is what takes the thoughts of needing to do the thing to fix ourselves out of our minds.
