Abstract: Diagnosable illness of any kind is confronting on every level. It can crush the spirit, darken the soul and leave a person floundering in the shadows of their hidden potential. This talk will explore and challenge established modes of thinking in service delivery and consumer advocacy, by looking at the concept of recovery from an entirely new perspective. One must begin with the image of wellness in its entirety and then be committed to its undertaking. Vicki Katsifis utilised a self designed method of recovery using a multidimensional system which incorporated healing of the mind the physical body, the spirit and a confrontation of her past, her present and the limitless possibilities of the future. Healing modalities explored include neurolinguistic programming, hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, self psychology and mind body healing.
