“We can’t always chose the music life plays for us, but we can chose how we dance to it”
I found it hard to relax, sleep became but a dream. My mind was never in the “now” instead my mind was constantly ahead – not in a constructive planning manner – but rather I was worrying ahead about things that hadn’t even happened!
I was in survival mode: just about keeping my head above water from day to day.
Nothing seemed to change . Eventually I reached a point when I knew enough was enough. I researched therapy profiles, wondering how therapy would or could work for me. Eventually I found a therapist that I thought I could connect with. Through therapy , I was able to see things with renewed perspective . Therapy felt like getting a new prescription for your glasses – suddenly I could see things with greater clarity .
Therapy was the first time I got to hear myself in my own space. There were difficult moments, but with time , I learned why those looped songs kept playing. Through therapy I learned how to see ahead constructively .
Inspired by how therapy helped me, I embarked on re training as a therapist. I wanted to bring my own brand of therapy and “hold space” for clients who had similar struggles that I had gone through.
Therapy helped me rewrite some of those old songs that once plagued me. Some of those old songs randomly replay, but understanding myself better helped me dip into “new songs.”
I now teach hypnotherapy and counselling inspiring new students who are training to be fellow therapists. I truly enjoy teaching students find their own path.
In my spare time I enjoy making handmade vegan , plant based botanical skin care balms and teas made to order on my Etsy shop .
