The #1 mistake most women
with pain make!
Many women have asked me how to manage their physical pain. I often hear them have made the mistake of ignoring the pain repeatedly and doing a lot of things to prove they are a "normal person."
When they come to me, they feel hopeless, lack energy, have low self-esteem because they don't get believed, and are alive but not living a valuable life.
They don’t want to be identified as a sick, injured, or even worse, a lazy person! Instead, they’re fighting a constant inside battle, with pain as their enemy, hating a part of their body, something that’s only stealing energy and happiness away from them. Makes them only survive, but not actually live a full and valuable life.
And that’s just backward. That is why I started this program. To help women train their brains to control the pain to begin living a more valuable life again. Without that inside war, the fear of movement, hopelessness, and lack of energy. And instead improve their self-esteem, energy, and happiness.
The sooner you start to value yourself,
the sooner you will get your life back!
and here's mistake #2
Women tend to put themselves in second, third, fourth, or even fifth place, after their kids, partner, job, household, and even after their friend's needs.
Even when they live with pain, they try to ignore it and take care of everyone else but themselves! Keep on saying that they don't have the time to take care of themselves.
But here's the deal;
Who will take care of everything?
You are the most important person in your life! Wait!
Don't start arguing quite yet, keep on reading.
When you are not functioning, when you have too much pain and no energy, who will take care of your kids, partner, friends, and job?
When you don't have the energy to play with your kids or have too much pain to bring them to funny adventures. What kind of self-value signals do you give them?
When you can't bear even a hug from your partner and sex is out of the discussion. What kind of support do you get from your partner? And how can you support your partner?
When you have to call in sick due to pain several days a month, what will happen to your job?
Mind your brain,
master the pain program
The program is designed for women, focusing on how long-term pain affects women's health and how you can take back control of your pain and your life.
Training the brain and turning pain into strength and success is truly possible and the best strategy for long-term sustainable pain management! Science agrees.
Our brain is the most powerful tool on the planet and when you know how to manage it properly, nothing can stop you from turning pain into strength!
You will be part of a warm and supportive community that will help you become a master at managing your pain, your daily life, and your work. For a more valuable and profitable life.
So how long will it take before you actually start valuing yourself and putting yourself in the front seat of your life?
I know I should have done it years ago, but I didn't have the tools at the time, and no doctor or physiotherapist has provided me with these tools during all these years!
Now I have the tools and I know that it is verified by science that training your brain is the most effective way to manage your long-term pain. So I want to share this knowledge and these tools with you because I know what a big difference it makes to live a full and valuable life instead of just surviving.
"Since December 2018 I have lived with constant back pain. Before that, I had back pain once in a while. I have pushed my body very hard for several years, too much hard training, too little recovery time, and too much stress. One day my back said: STOP! And I had to get an ambulance to get to the hospital. "Lumbago!" the doctor said and prescribed me some painkillers and sent me home.
In March 2021, MRI showed a dehydrated disc/herniated disc. After 2 years with the physiotherapist, and fighting with doctors to get to the back pain clinic at the hospital, I have finally started to see the light in the tunnel!
I lost my identity, the happy, alert, and fit girl was gone in a second. With the fear of increasing the pain, I locked myself into a tiny space of my own.
During this time I've had amazing people surrounding me, my boyfriend, friends, and colleagues. But sometimes there is a need for some other kind of help. That was the time when I realized I had to do things differently and contacted Cattis Olsson.
I have now been in her program for two months and I can already tell a difference. The pain is still there, but my attitude towards it has changed radically. I am not finished with this journey, I now know it takes time. But what I want to say is; if you live with long-term pain and are ready to work for a change, then Cattis is the right person to help you with that!"
Five pillars for sustainable pain management
Power of mind
You know that pain is the signal your brain gives you to warn you. It's a vital function. But how do you stop the long-term pain? That's where the power of thought comes in. It teaches you how to control your thoughts and emotions so you can control the pain.
People who live with pain and use mental training techniques as part of pain management feel better than they have in years. It has helped them create a life of value.
Do you let the pain identify you? Or do you identify with your profession or hobby? But when pain prevents you from doing your job or hobby, you need to find out who you are without it. And in order to do this, you must not only fight the pain but also find acceptance for it in order to heal both physically and emotionally.
Acceptance is not about giving up. It's about accepting things for what they are right now and stopping the civil war within you.
No one knows from one day to the next what your pain level will be. If it's been your life for a while, it's time to break the vicious cycle.
Creating a schedule that works for you that provides long-term sustainability where you are able to be productive, because of your recovery is one of the most important keys to managing pain. This is your life and you deserve to live a life of value.
Joy of movement
The fear of movement can be paralyzing and you end up in a vicious downward spiral where the lack of movement causes you even more pain.
Learn to distinguish between "good" and "bad" pain. How does long-term pain differ from acute pain and how does it affect your body and brain?
Communicating your needs and wishes to your loved ones can be really difficult, but when you can communicate your needs, both to yourself and to others, you also strengthen your self-leadership.
You may not know it, but this is a really important skill that helps strengthen relationships with your family, friends, partners, and colleagues.
You are not alone!
My name is Cattis Olsson. My dream was to be part of the Swedish national cross-country ski team and the biggest goal was of course to represent Sweden in the Olympics.
At the age of 16, I also started skydiving and on my fifth landing, I crashed hard to the ground. I had suffered my first back injury. Now I'm 46 and I've lived with persistent pain since that hot day in July 30 years ago.
I currently have four different back injuries. The doctors and physiotherapists have told me after each back injury that it would be impossible for me to run, cross-country ski, and do many of my favorite hobbies again. They even talked about disability retirement when I was in my 20s.
I refused to listen to them. Instead, I used my knowledge of mental training, anatomy, and physiology and I listened to my own body.
Today I can do all the things they told me would be impossible.
From patient to lecturer in the medical program
Ten years ago, I went from running my own business and working as a spa manager, to having three herniated discs and exhaustion at the same time! This resulted in a very long and hard test of my patience in terms of rehabilitation and taking it easy.
My business had to be put on hold and I had to start all over again with everything.
It was a total physical, mental and financial collapse.
I also had a major identity crisis, no longer knowing who I was. I identified myself as an energized, healthy person who loved my job as a massage therapist and mental coach, who loved exercise and finding adventures in nature.
Suddenly, I couldn't do any of that.
I felt very alone and lost in my life.
Who was I?
What could I work with?
What could I do in my spare time?
Even after this tough period, I picked myself up and moved forward again. I was able to do work experience at a research center which was extremely inspiring. After a few years, I decided to start up my business again. Now with even more knowledge and experience.
Today I am also one of the lecturers at Karolinska Institute medical & physiotherapy programs in their pain courses. Since my first back injury, I have dreamed of lecturing to doctors, physiotherapists, naprapaths, and others, to help them respond and create an understanding of how important words and the mental part are in a patient's pain journey.
I have always used mental training and it is what has got me up and moving forward after every back injury, but it wasn't until I had it confirmed by science that I realized what an incredibly important tool it is and that it is far from obvious that everyone in these professions has knowledge of it.

Pain management is not a quick fix
The Mind your brain, master the pain is a twelve months program for you who wants a sustainable and persistent change for managing your pain.
Why twelve months?
Because long-term pain is not a quick fix, and changing your thoughts and behavior takes time. The webinars and workbooks are not just something to consume as fast as possible, each module is for a month and that is to get time to really implement one thing at a time.
This is what makes it a sustainable and persistent change in your life. Because it is easy to read or listen to something during "good days", the challenge is to implement it in your everyday life and really stick to it even on "the bad pain days".
You'll get all this:
- Group coaching
- Private podcast
- Audio files
- 1:1 Coaching
- Private Facebook-group
From just surviving to living a valuable life
Being able to live a valuable life where you can focus on all the positive things you can do instead of wasting negative energy on the things you can't do changes everything.
Knowledge is the key to preventing fear, and I know it's easy to get into fear of movement and fear of pain. When you know how long-term pain works and you can start implementing the tools you'll get in this program, you can also go outside your comfort zone and break that fear, and when you break that fear, you'll have a much more valuable and abundant life!
In addition to webinars, workbooks, audio files with relaxation, mental training, and more, you will also have the opportunity to participate in a twice-monthly group coaching session.
The group coaching will not be recorded, I care about your integrity. So you need to be there live to get answers to your own and the other members' questions. Of course, it's optional if you want to share something in the group.
The community of other people who understand what it's like to live with long-term pain is really powerful and will help you manage your pain journey even better. Even if you have a loving and caring family, they don't understand what it's like to live with pain 24/7. That's what this community is for.
Many people say that the community was what really made them shift their focus and choose a new, better, and more valuable path in their pain journey.
Let's break the stigma about pain
It doesn't matter if your pain comes from an injury or sickness, in this membership we will focus more on how to manage your brain, acceptance, tiredness, expectations from family, friends, colleagues, and how you communicate your needs with them.
Long-term pain often brings shame and stigma, you don't want to be different, so you probably do things even better than a person without pain, just to prove that you are "normal".
Communication can be really hard, that is why there is a whole module about it in the program. Because when you have learned to manage to keep the pain at a good level, you also need to communicate to the family, friends, colleagues, employers, etc. what you need to keep it that way. And how do you do that without feeling like you are whining or asking for pity?
Because I know that it's not what you want to do.
My mission is to break the stigma and the shaming about long-term pain, I don't ask for you to go in the frontline with me, but I can assure you I will give you the confidence to stop the shaming about it in your life!
How much have you worked with your own mental resilience, self-awareness, and self-love? Are you ready to start that inside journey to a more valuable and abundant life?
