"Recover your Energy". Extract published in Resource magazine 2009 For the full article click here
The Amoenalife magazine ( is dedicated to show women how they can feel lovely again after breast cancer. The winter 2009 edition has a great article entitled "Running on empty" (pages 6-9)

Below is an extract about how Olive's book or CD (talking book) can help people overcoming cancer to Recover their Energy:

Just as Judy Benson discovered, though, when the energy is overdrawn, the process of returning the balance to theblack can take longer than you think, but developing an awareness of your own needs is crucial.

Author, Olive Hickmott uses the striking analogy of the burnt out house. "Exhaustion is normally born out of a major change. When the medics come in and do the breast cancer treatment it is a bit like the fire brigade coming in - they put out the fire magnificently but you have to deal with the devestation they leave behind."

Olive's most recent book, Recover your energy, written as a healing story, can help. Written for people with Chronic Fatigue, it focuses on discovering your energy system and treating it as respectfully as you would your circulatory or digestive system. "If you accept the fact that once the fire brigade is gone, you need to do some work on you (just as you would have to clean and tidy your house), its easier to understand the process" explains Olive. Her work includes helping women to recognise the difference between negative energy (shock, anxiety, fear) and positive energy. "Most of us don't know anything about our energy" says Olive "until chemo comes along and takes it all away." Using a technique called EnergeticNLP (neurolinguistic programming), Olive helps women better manage their energy.
