Consultant Fatigue Therapist
Since 2001, R. Amir Norris B.Sc., has helped over 800 adults and children with fatigue disorders, ranging from those affected by M.E., Chronic Fatigue, Post Viral Fatigue, Fibromyalgia and Adrenal Fatigue.
He is one of the UK’s well known therapists working in the chronic fatigue field and is helping to transform the way the world views ME/CFS.
Amir first began working in the Stress Management field back in 1991. Later he trained in Person-Centred Counselling and then trained for two years in Neuro-Linguistic Programming at the European College of Holistic Medicine, before becoming an Advanced Practitioner specialising in fatigue conditions.
Amir is one of only a handful of professionals in the world to have pioneered a successful way of working with chronic fatigue conditions, as well as having experienced ME/CFS directly himself during 1986 – 96, so he knows the condition inside-out.
Amir has spent thousands of hours training people from all over the world, both individually and in seminars. He has also been a mentor to many student practitioners who have sat in on his client trainings and courses. Over a dozen people who got well after attending his course went on to be therapists in this field.
In 2000, he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Educational Multimedia from the University of Wales, knowledge he has used to create powerfully engaging online training that accelerates learning for those taking his online Energy Excellence Course.
In 2001, Amir trained at Bangor University with world-renowned Professor Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., scientist and best selling author. Amir was awarded a Practitioners Certificate in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. MBSR has become an accepted and highly effective clinical approach to stress, pain and illness.
In 2008, Amir started an outreach project using Skype to help people in other countries. The success of this project has grown into a worldwide online recovery course.
Amir has been a keynote conference speaker on ME/CFS in Wales’ Capital and has published numerous articles and reports on fatigue conditions, including authoring audio, video and CD-ROM titles.
Amir was one of the professionals interviewed in a recent Norwegian documentary film on ME/CFS, after the film makers’ daughter recovered by attending his Clinic in Wales. His clients, which include celebrities, have also been interviewed on BBC radio 2, as well as featuring in local and national newspapers.
