Nancy Blake is a ME Patient and Advocate, having contracted the condition in 1986.
A firm believer that ME has a physiological cause, Nancy is also a retired psychotherapist (accredited as a Neurolinguistic Psychotherapist by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy).
Her background in psychotherapy has informed her expert opinion that ME is unrelated to depression, and is not in fact a psychological disorder but a physical one.
Nancy also teaches piano using the learning and motivational principles of NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming).

Our immune system responds to our emotional state; NLP is a powerful tool to keep it strong.
For those of you who know my site as one mainly concerned with my professional work as a neurolinguistic psychotherapist, I need to explain that at the moment my main concern is the current situation concerning the treatment of people who have myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME, CFS. ME/CFS, CFS/ME) in most (but not all) Western nations.
If you have ME, you are most likely to be energetic, ambitious, generally optimistic, ploughing onward through illness or minor injuries, the farthest thing from being the hypochondriac of popular media perception. You need every bit of help and encouragement you can get to give yourself a chance to get better - to feel OK that resting is the right thing to do. And there are other things which can help, too, based on Les Simpson's research and recommendations concerning shape changes in the red-blood cell population.
If you are visiting this site because you are looking for a psychotherapist or a piano teacher, or have heard about NLP (neurolinguistic programming) and would like to learn more, please look at my articles.
