Mental health is finally getting the spotlight it deserves. We have finally woken up to the fact that we are emotional beings experiencing life not only physically but mentally too.
We are more than happy to help those in physical pain and discomfort but mental and emotional pain have been brushed under the carpet for so long, I for one am glad that the carpet is now being ripped up and exposing the reality that we have all suffered at some point in our life.
The thing is, we live in a world of free information, we can learn about anything and everything at the click of a button. We teach our kids about they way of the world but rarely teach them about themselves; why they think and feel the way they do, what affects the way they think and feel and how to recognise when they don’t feel quite right within themselves.
The trouble is we’ve become so disconnected within ourselves that we are unable to recognise our own emotional states let alone educate our children as to what they are, why and how they experience them and how they can manage them.
If we taught children about their emotions we would have a generation that understands ALL emotions are normal and are experienced by EVERYBODY at some point during their lives. We could develop a generation that is understanding of one another and feels connected and that they belong. Because deep down that’s all we all want to feel...... like we are part of something greater than ourselves and that we have our place no matter how big or small. 🧡
Since my clients literally bare their body and soles to me
( did ya see what I did there 😉)
I thought it only right to bare my soul to you guys too and let you know a little about me and how I came to be the person I am now. So...... here goes
Who am I?
First and foremost I'm a Mother. My 2 boys very much keep me on my toes and have caused me my fair share of physical and emotional pain! (But that a whole other blog in itself) Having children and becoming a mother has brought a new perspective to my treatments. Enabling me to use my experience and skills for my own benefit and then pass this first hand knowledge onto my clients. To read more about my birth story and the techniques I used to have a relaxed, confident birth but also have two babies who were so content that they never cried and have grown to be intelligent, loving, intuitive boys. Look out for my upcoming post.
Obviously I’m a therapist / healer. Ever since I was a little girl I’ve wanted to help people get better. Maybe this was due to seeing my mum and pop go to the chiropractor, maybe not, but I always knew that was the sort of thing I wanted to do. I honestly don’t consider this to be my job, more of a calling. Throughout the years I’ve worked on my own mind body connections but found that this has led me to become a lot more in tune with my spiritual connections too which has enabled me to process and honour the spiritual experience I had as a teenager ( I’ll write about this soon) and led me down this path.
I’m a science geek at heart. I will chose a documentary over a soap any day and my bedtime reading frequently features physics or biology books.
People fascinate me, I am at my happiest sat with a friend people watching. We’re all so original and quirky. People really are a passion of mine.
With over 20 yrs experience working with people I suppose much like any person who has held their job for such a long period, it all becomes second nature and intuitive. I feel I've reached a point where I can't help but surrender to the inevitable evolution of my treatments. My passion now is helping my clients create long lasting mental & physical health through healing deep emotional energetic blockages.
The last 5yrs have been a time of deep healing for myself. Calling upon all my past experience and knowledge I've had first hand experience of how energetic blockages and emotional stress can cause extreme physical pain and chronic discomfort as such I had no choice but to give up work for a few years after having my second child as I was in such a bad way.
I made time to honour my intuition, emotions, family and inner needs and most importantly follow my own advice. As such I’m stronger both physically and mentally and in turn I feel this has led me to become a much better therapist and coach.
As much as I still loving giving a normal treatment, I get a greater sense of satisfaction knowing I’ve helped my clients at a deeper level. My efforts lately have been put into my workshops and online courses in the hope that I can reach more people and empower those to heal themselves.
