Welcome, here is a little about how I became an Emotional Freedom Techniques Practitioner (EFT) and Clinical Hypnotherapist and how I can help you.
For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in the power of the mind, the connection it has with our bodies and how we experience our reality;
About 6 years ago life did not feel good; I was working in a soul destroying job, living in a place I didn’t like, lonely and in debt. One grey, rainy day I was stuck in a traffic jam observing the weather from the warmth of my car, I watched as the rain bounced off the puddles and the trees bent and twisted in the wind while my teenage daughter sat in the passenger seat quietly looking at her phone. Sitting at the wheel of the car feeling frustrated, I suddenly felt overwhelmed and began to cry, sobbing that my life was over and bemoaning the facts that I was old, divorced and poor and had not achieved anything in my life.
My Daughter took a long look at me and said “Mum, have you forgotten how you have always told me that the more negative thoughts I have the more negative my life will become? “ In that instant, I had the huge realisation that I had not been practicing what I had been teaching and my present circumstances were the result of my thought patterns and limiting beliefs.
Light Bulb Moment
I made up my mind right there that I would consciously try change my view of the world. It wasn’t easy at first, I read self-help books, and listened to hypnosis CD’s searching for anything that made life feel a little easier. I started to be grateful for all the good things, my children, pets, car, even the job I hated by appreciating its security and benefits. As much as possible, I focused my attention on the good, rather than the things I felt I lacked or did not want.
Life gradually started to change, I was offered a better job, and felt generally happier. There were still challenges and some unexpected events but within two years I had a job I loved, good friends, no debt and I felt happy. I was finally on an upward spiral, the better I felt, the better my life became.
A deep seated desire to help other people remained, so following my passion; I studied with the Adam Eason School of Therapeutic Hypnosis and qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist specialising in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). I went on to study with Karl Dawson an accredited Advanced EFT Practitioner, founder of Matrix Re-imprinting and approved trainer with Gary Craig, the founder of EFT.
All these modalities can be used to treat a wide range of physical and emotional issues and I have experience in working with pain both physical and emotional, fears, phobias, unhealthy habits and addictions like smoking and I tailor the techniques I use to each individual.
How I Can Help You
I discovered my specialist field when I had the realisation that by overcoming emotional pain, using all the above techniques, that I can share my experience and help other people to heal from their heartbreaks.
