Katja Symons has always been interested in physical health and how the human body is connected to the mind. She came across the Three Principles understanding in March 2011 and it totally transformed her mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Previously trained as a Holistic Health Practitioner she now combines the knowledge of both worlds as one and came to a deep understanding what Natural Health really means.
Katja was fortunate to be inspired by many seasoned Three Principles facilitators over the years and to be mentored by Jack Pransky for the last four years. She also co-organised and took part in his Extended Professional Trainings held in Spain in 2012-2015 and translates his book “Somebody Should Have Told Us!” into German. She is currently in the process of finishing her own book “Health is Here, Now!” where she shares her insights into the Nature of True Healing on the physical level.
Because of her own journey of overcoming chronic health issues (autoimmune diseases like Graves’ Disease or Morbus Basedow, Fibromyalgia, IBS, Chronic Fatigue and lots of unspecified aches and pains for many years) all her heart is in helping people with similar difficulties not only on a personal level but also in empowering health professionals to see the natural potential of human self-healing abilities in their patients. Katja is passionate about transforming the healthcare field fundamentally from the inside out to change focus to people’s innate Health which will eventually not only eradicate lots of suffering but also empower any society to live in peace and harmony.
Katja is from Berlin, Germany and currently lives in Spain. She works as a coach and Three Principles facilitator with the focus on Natural Health Mentoring. Find out more information on her website www.katjasymons.com
From an early age, Mick had an avid interest in Eastern philosophy and psychology as an attempt to make sense of the world. He grew up watching his mother struggling with the affliction of Multiple Sclerosis, from which she died aged 49. His own discovery of Tai Chi, Shiatsu, Chinese Medicine and energy healing in his early 20s gave him the conviction that there could have been relief from that health struggle.
For many years, Mick taught Tai Chi for a living – but found his own struggle in making ends meet. It always seemed a joke that a Tai Chi teacher should be stressed, but that was the reality. Learning NLP seemed a natural step to try to find new ways of thinking that could help improve circumstances. He trained to Master Practitioner level and also trained in specific health applications of NLP. Always there was the fascination with how the mind, body and spirit are inseparable.
At the end of 2001 Mick was diagnosed with a single sclerosis which causes symptoms of muscular fatigue, loss of balance and difficulties walking – in short, mild MS. This has had a major impact on the direction of Mick’s life. He had to give up teaching Tai Chi, and subsequently stop working on the computer as a web designer due to brain fatigue. The ‘silver lining’, however, is that the health challenge drew him initially to a very effective type of healing Qigong, and then to train as an NLP Life Coach in 2010.
Coaching led to the discovery of the Three Principles in 2012. This changed everything. It became clear to Mick that struggle can only come from one place – from within, rather than from the circumstances outside. He no longer felt at the mercy of his own health condition and realised that the experience of wellbeing has nothing to do with the random fluctuations of any symptoms. Mick’s sense of the future now looks open and hopeful – and the health challenge is seen more and more with curiosity, as a sort of ‘mind laboratory’ rather than a problem.
From this range of experience, Mick wants to share his understanding and help others see their own potential for wellbeing – a healing in the biggest sense of the word. He loves to help others see possibility where it appears there is none.
