I’ve had my fair share of life’s ups and downs, my close friends and I started to call them interesting times instead of stressful times. They wanted to put a different slant on things and tried to take my mind off the issues that were getting me down. They were successful in doing that in the moment. We laughed a lot (Thank you girls, you know who you are). However, these moments were short-lived and so I knew I had to seek professional help.
I had counselling, with a very brilliant woman who made me see that my happiness was my responsibility and that had to come from within. I had to get out of my own way. So I did, eventually (I saw her every week for a year and a half).
I changed my career path (I was in recruitment, I pride myself on being a people person) and started working as a support worker for the NHS in a community Mental Health Team. This led to me doing my training and I qualified as a counsellor 5 years later.
I love being a counsellor and I have built a successful private practice. I have a special interest in anxiety, fear based issues and low self-esteem and I found myself wishing I could speed up the process for my clients suffering with these issues.
I found Marisa Peer and her method, Rapid Transformational Therapy and was intrigued. I booked a session for myself to see if it worked and it did! I was cured of my issues around weight, I was a yo-yo dieter, always self-sabotaging any progress I made. Now I’m two stone lighter than I was back then and I can honestly say weight will never be an issue for me again. My thinking has completely changed and I have a healthy relationship with food now. So I did the training to become a RTT practitioner and Certified Hypnotherapist and the rest, as they say, is history.
