Roger Elley-Brown of Elley-Brown Consultants in Auckland New Zealand “Christian” counsellor told my brother Fergus his long-time medically diagnosed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome illness is “in his head”.

Fergus Elley is my younger and only brother.

 

My brother Fergus- very badly treated for many decades by our sister Margaret Elley-Brown and her husband, Roger Elley “Christian” Counsellor of Elley-Brown Consultants in Epsom, Auckland, New Zealand

 

My brother Fergus Elley lives on the outskirts of Auckland and, despite being a Veterinary Surgeon and highly intelligent and educated, he has been on a long-term medical benefit since 1991.

Despite my brother’s unfortunate circumstance, my sister Margaret Elley-Brown and her husband Roger Elley-Brown have shown Fergus zero care and compassion.

In fact, they have estranged themselves from Fergus through lack of love and zero compassion since the early 2000’s.

I lay the blame solely at their door, since it is what they have told Fergus, and the rumours and hate they’ve fostered towards Fergus, over many decades, that has perpetuated the estrangement.

In 1991, my brother was diagnosed by a specialist Auckland doctor Rosamund Vallings with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). This wide-ranging medical condition was called Tapanui Flu or ME in those days.

It’s thought that Fergus’ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome condition may have been caused by a bad dose of glandular fever at 16 and not realising that he had a health situation which meant that he should be careful to not over do it

My father Rev Reuben Donald Elley, a leading evangelical New Zealand Presbyterian clergy, once said, “when Roger came into the family, a dark cloud came into the family”.

I would say this is a true and accurate statement, although I hold my sister Margaret equally culpable and to blame for the way they’ve treated my brother Fergus.

 

My father Rev Reuben Donald Elley, a leading evangelical New Zealand Presbyterian clergy, once said, “when Roger came into the family, a dark cloud came into the family”.

 

Whatever the cause and prognosis, my brother Fergus has suffered from debilitating migraine head-aches, fatigue, aching muscles and other physical maladies for over thirty years.

How Roger Elley-Brown, my brother-in-law, can say Fergus’ illness is “all in his head” is beyond belief, arrogant, out-of-touch and almost defamatory.

Roger Elley-Brown dropped out of the Baptist ministry (pastoring) in the mid 1990s after a group of Baptist Deacons ganged up on him and kicked him out of Napier Baptist Church.

After this episode, Roger decided to become a Christian counsellor. Roger did a two-year diploma and hung out his shingle as a counsellor.

So Roger Elley-Brown isn’t highly qualified and somewhere in his head he thinks it’s Ok to say to my brother Fergus that his Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is “all in his head”. My sister Margaret holds this view too.

Margaret and Roger Elley-Brown are extremely cruel people and I’m ashamed to be related to them.
