The Primal Happiness Show
John is a Breakthrough Coach, speaker and researcher based in the UK. He has over 16 years’ experience working with clients internationally, providing both personal and corporate coaching, training and mentorship services. John has learned from some of the top success and performance coaches in the world, studying and exploring what enables us to really be at our best, to help guide his clients to make their own breakthroughs. The transformations John witnesses, are often life changing, as clients gain a deeper understanding of how their minds work, enabling them to experience a healthier, happier, more successful and creative life. John has a speciality for helping people with various chronic health conditions – a by product of his own healing journey from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It was this healing journey that led him to conduct a research study to demonstrate the transformative effects of this approach for other sufferers of CFS. The study has now been accepted for publication in an American Psychological Association journal after a full peer review process. Described by the Journal editor as “ground-breaking”, the study results provide further empirical evidence for the efficacy of Three Principles to help individuals find greater mental and physical health. In this show we explore what John and I have seen is the real power behind transformation and healing work. John shared his experiences from his years of work supporting people with chronic health conditions and his own healing journey, and I shared what I've seen about my own recovery from chronic pain. We realised after we finished recording, we wanted to emphasise that in no way are either of us saying 'it's all in the mind' or blaming people for their struggles. We both see this with deep compassion and empathy and only hope to provide some illumination on the things we've seen can help free people from the grip of chronic conditions.

Episode 65 - Trying to Control the Uncontrollable - with John El-Mokadem
The Little Peace of Mind Podcast
Earlier this year, John El-Mokadem and I ran a training that was helpful to so many people that I wanted to turn it into a podcast to share with you today. In it we discussed: What's the big deal about living in a quieter mind? Why do we think it's so hard to 'get there'? How dropping the resistance to what is can be a fundamental gamechanger How the way we feel doesn't need to have any bearing on what we choose to do All about physical symptoms - anxiety, panic attacks, Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia There is a bit of dodginess in some of the sound due to the internet connection, but please don't let that spoil your enjoyment!
What looks and even feels like failure may well be exactly what needs to happen to move you towards what you really want. In this episode John shares how going back into his I.T. work helped him become much more free as a coach and helped him increase his impact on his clients. And how those clients are showing up from seeds he has been planting for a very long time, often without even realising it…Here’s a little more about John:John El-Mokadem is a Breakthrough Coach based in the UK with 14 years’ experience, providing both personal and corporate coaching, training and mentorship services. John works with a Three Principles grounding to share a deeper understanding of how the mind works that can enable clients to experience a healthier, happier, more successful and creative life. The transformations John witnesses are often life changing as clients settle down into a space of ease and possibility. Most recently John has conducted an academic research study to demonstrate the transformative effects of this approach on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. A large part of his client work is now health focused and helping clients to access their own innate wellbeing. John has in recent years also worked on the faculty of Michael Neill’s Supercoach Academy and developed his own programme teaching coaches how to create Breakthrough results with their own clients. For John, this work is a more of a passion to serve and help others as the understanding he now shares had such a profound impact on so many areas of his own life.http://breakthroughthat.com/
” What you’re looking for is a quiet mind” – Sydney Banks. When you’re struggling with an anxious, panicky experience – it’s easy to feel as far as you possibly could be from a quiet mind. Peace. Quiet. Calm. Where does that come from? What’s possible from that space? How do we get there? All of these questions and more are answered by John El-Mokadem in this special podcast episode.
In this episode John and I talk about how actual or feared physical symptoms are created - and how our reaction to them determines how scared we get. We also talk about the distinction between pain and suffering. This all sounds terribly serious and depressing and the conversation we have is actually not.

The Thriving Coaches Podcast
John El-Mokadem is a breakthrough coach based just outside of London in Tunbridge Wells, UK. He’s a Certified Advanced Transformative Coach but he’s quick to point out that more importantly he’s a human being who has lived and struggled like all of us do. He sees his struggles as a gift these days - an opportunity to open up and understand more about what this life is and to share what he has learned to help others to live happier lives. And one of the interesting things about John is he’s spent a lot of time working with individuals with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and other chronic health syndromes and has been amazed at the progress that his clients have been able to achieve with a deeper understanding of how their minds really work.
