Are you newly diagnosed with migraines? Or are you feeling hopeless after years of struggling and suffering?
I have been both.
But the good news is: there is a light at the end of the tunnel! While it’s true that you can’t cure migraines, you can learn to manage them.
It took me more than 20 long, stressful years to learn how to do just that (14 of which were without any pain relief whatsoever). So I’ve developed this course to help you reach a happier, healthier state of mind and wellbeing - in just a tiny fraction of that time.
This course is designed to give you clarity, confidence, knowledge and control over your migraine attacks.
You’ll learn how you can really live your life, rather than just “survive between migraines”. You’ll discover just how capable you are of achieving your goals - leaving confusion, fear, anxiety and despair way behind.
By taking this course, you’ll …
There are 3 modules, each of which is broken down into a number of individual lessons:
Understanding the basics of what migraines are; learning about pain management; exploring support options; developing a pain management plan.
Creating a healthcare team that covers all your needs; perfecting your medical relationships; dealing with other aspects of life; developing your coping skills.
Getting emotional support; dealing with depression and anxiety; managing setbacks; equipping yourself with resilience tools (strength, courage, patience, perseverance and meditation).
All of the modules include activities to help you get organized and achieve the best results in the shortest time possible. Don’t just “sit it out” any longer - take action now!
How long is the Migraine Pain Management Course?
As short or as long as you make it - you work at your own pace. There are 3 modules with 4 - 5 lessons each, so if you choose to take 1 lesson a week, the full course will last about 12 weeks.
How long is each lesson?
For optimal learning, each lesson should take approximately 20 minutes to read and digest. There will be a few exercises / activities in each lesson to reinforce the learning.
How long will the exercises / activities take?
It’s up to you! Finding effective migraine pain relief and management techniques needs experimentation to get the right fit for you. There’s also some trial and error involved - but there’s no rush, so you can take as long as you need to experiment and find what works for you.
What additional resources does the course include?
You’ll receive printouts (e.g. a symptom tracker, a medication tracker, a migraine diary, forms to take to your doctor’s appointment - to name but a few!). These are distributed throughout the lessons in the course. All lessons also include additional reading and resource links.
What are your qualifications?
Well, for starters, I’ve been dealing with my own severe and disabling migraines for over 20 years! I’m also a qualified counselor and psychotherapist (MCAP), the author of MigraineSavvy.com and now The Migraine Coach. I have many years’ experience of helping hundreds clients through the migraine minefield. And further down the page, I’d like to share with you the 9 facts I wished I’d known about migraines when I was first diagnosed… it would have saved me a whole heap of heartache!
Will my migraines go away if I take this course?
I’m afraid the simple answer is: no. There is currently no cure for migraines. But - this course will teach you how to change the way you think about, manage and cope with this chronic condition. I do also remain hopeful of a cure one day - there are new medications in the pipeline (CGRP drugs) and new treatment trials (e.g. Botox) that can be explored.

Do I need to buy any special / additional equipment or materials for this course?
No. Everything you need to create a strategy for managing migraines is included within the course. But you might want to experiment with some of my suggestions, which can cost money (e.g. Botox, the Cefaly device, essential oils, ice packs etc.). After taking the course you may like to consider buying my ebook - but that’s not a requirement for the course.
What if I don’t understand something in the course - can you help me?
Yes! Please feel free to email me directly and I’ll answer any queries. I’ll also be adding additional video answers as you progress through the course.
Can I get my money back if the course doesn’t help me?
If you are not satisfied for any reason I will gladly issue a refund within the first seven days of purchasing the course. No questions asked.
I wish I’d known these facts when I was first diagnosed with migraines. I think if I could have armed myself with the truth early on, I wouldn’t have been so hurt and offended by other people’s comments and remarks. And I certainly wouldn’t have blamed myself.
When you’re confronted with the stigma of migraines, remind yourself of these key truths …
1. Migraines are a neurological disorder. They are a medical condition. They are most typically characterized by sudden pain and a plethora of associated symptoms.
2. The headache or pain phase is only one of the four stages of migraine attacks. There are many symptoms that accompany an attack and they are unpredictable.
3. There are four possible phases of migraine attack: prodrome, aura, pain or headache, and postdrome. Not everyone experiences all four phases of an attack.
4. Migraines can last days, weeks or even months. Most typically, they last from 4 to 72 hours. Mine can last up to 10 days, and I get all sorts of symptoms.
5. Risk factors and complications associated with migraines can be life-threatening. Although migraines themselves are not considered to be life-threatening, in US studies the risk of stroke and other cardiovascular diseases is higher in migraineurs. Depression can develop as a symptom of persistent migraines. And suicide attempts are three times higher in migraine sufferers, whether or not they have previously been diagnosed with depression.
