Pete's story is very typical of that of most people with pain. He was looking for the magic bullet that would take away his pain. Pete became a serial doctor and therapy shopper. The pursuit of managing pain was like playing a game of snakes and ladders; a game of luck.
In 1996 Pete attended a pain management programme that changed how he viewed and dealt with his pain which prompted him to try to help others in a similar situation.
Pete is a member of the Steering Group for the Health Coaching concept in the East of England. Health Coaching promotes a different type of conversation that transforms and supports the clinician/patient relationship.
Pete is also a member of the British Pain Society (he supported the BPS when upgrading the desirable criteria for Pain Management Programmes in the UK) and the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP).
Pete is the winner of the Pain UK Champion award 2014.View Pete's Tool Tips ›
