What is The 90 Day Reset Programme?
The 90 Day Reset Programme is the Optimum Health Clinic’s groundbreaking psychology based course. The Optimum Health Clinic is one of the world’s leading clinics specialising in ME, CFS and Fibromyalgia, with a number of the clinic’s teams having personal experience in these areas. The 90 Day Programme was originally created in 2006 and since then it has been consistently revised and updated by the OHC psychology department. In 2019 Alex Howard, the founder of the OHC, created an online psychology based programme called The RESET Programme. The 90 day RESET Programme brings together both of these cutting-edge courses, allowing you to experience the best of both in a supported way.
All of the psychology practitioners who run The 90 Day Reset Programme have had their own personal experience of ME/CFS, which gives them a real understanding of the kind of challenges that patients are dealing with. One of the most challenging things that the psychology practitioners found on their personal journeys was the overwhelming variety of different ideas and approaches. The 90 Day Reset Programme helps take the guess work out of the process, integrating the very best of different approaches available. It is ultimately an approach that is greater than the sum of the parts.
What are the core components of The 90 Day Reset Programme?
The programme is run over a period of approximately 12 weeks and offers a combination of online videos and resources with weekly group sessions with a practitioner at OHC.
The content of The 90 day Reset Programme has been formed from what we call “The 3 Pillars of Healing,” and they are as follows:
The Healing Zone
- This section combines the latest research, along with OHC’s immense clinical experience, to teach you practical tools to calm your nervous system and switch off the maladaptive stress response
- You will learn to get your body consistently into the optimum healing state and support its natural capacity to heal
- As we learn to calm our mind and nervous system, often we will need to work with our emotions and cultivate a new relationship with our body
- You will learn EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) which is at the forefront of the new field becoming known as “Energy Psychology”
- You will also learn techniques from psychotherapy and coaching to support your emotional healing
- Knowing what to do is not the same as doing what we know! Significant emphasis will be placed on cultivating new habits and putting what you learn into action
- You will learn the different ways we tend to sabotage ourselves (particularly on the healing journey) and how to work with your body and mind, not against them
How is this different to other programmes out there?
There are three key factors which distinguish The 90 Day Reset Programme from other approaches available. This is the first truly integrative programme, taking a holistic view which necessarily involves the mind, body and emotions. Optimum health is the harmony of these three elements working together, and treating just one of them consequently misses parts of the puzzle.
The second key difference is that the format of the programme also ensures that you not only have the tools to make the changes that you need, but also have the time and support to reinforce them. The unique format gives you a personal introduction group session by zoom at the beginning of the programme so you can start to form bonds with each other and learn the best way to approach the programme. The following weeks include a combination of videos, homework and a weekly one hour zoom session as a group where you can ask questions and be supported to put everything you are learning into place. The combination of group sessions and the online materials support you to begin the process of change, and you will be supported to continue and implement that change. At any point in the programme you can also choose to have one to one sessions with your practitioner.
This programme is the result of years of different formats in which the psychology team have tried to precipitate and simplify the journey; it is the integration of not just all of the cutting-edge approaches available, but also the most effective way of applying them.
The third essential difference to other approaches is that many of those delivering the programme have personally been through the very experiences of those on the programme. This gives the team a truly compassionate and understanding approach.
What approaches have influenced this programme?
Some of the approaches that have laid the foundations for and influenced The 90 Day Reset Programme include:
- The Lightning Process
- Reverse Therapy
- Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
- Neuro-linguistic programming
- The Enneagram
- Life coaching
- Hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
What if I start the programme and find it is too much for me at the moment?
Having run numerous programmes, we are only too aware of the fears and anxieties people can have about their ability to complete an ongoing programme. However, we have also found that delegates are consistently surprised at their ability to keep up with the process, especially as the whole focus is on optimising energy as they go along anyway. You will also have lifetime access to all of the materials, meaning you can revisit the content as many times as you like.
How many people will be in my group?
Workshops are usually 8 -12 people. Small groups are there to ensure close support for each participant
This sounds like amazing value for money, but I’m still not sure I can afford it?
We are very sensitive to the financial reality and difficulties of many of those we work with. The majority of people that come to OHC are unable to work full time and a number are on benefits. We do all that we can to make the programme affordable to all interested parties, for example allowing participants to pay in instalments over the three months of the programme. Please contact us to discuss this further.
What changes can I expect as a result of doing this programme?
By the end of the programme you will have an in-depth understanding of the latest psychology tools developed by the OHC psychology department. As you will probably know, every situation is different. Some participants see significant changes in a few days or a few weeks, whilst for others, change will be a more gradual process, based on the specific make up of their background and personal experiences. In our experience this is very normal – and while there are approaches out there that will claim they can offer “cures” and “95% success rates,” this can be very misleading. It can take only a few days to change a mindset, but there is a reality where sometimes the body takes time to adjust. We are also much more interested in lasting change, than short-term peaks that can sometimes result in severe crashes further down the road.
What is the cancellation policy of the programme?
We are not able to accept cancellations at any point once enrolled on the programme, due to the small group nature of the workshops we run. In addition, anyone paying by instalments who cancels before the final instalment will need to complete payment of any remaining instalments owed. We are unfortunately unable to give refunds or transfer payments towards one-on-one sessions under any circumstances.
