I'd built my business as a Sports Therapist since the summer of 2004, but in 2013 I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and despite endeavouring to return to normal, I found that the treatment I had undergone was preventing me from giving my clients the level of care they deserved, and so in 2015 took the decision to retire from the industry.
Since my retirement from Sports Therapy I had looked a couple of businesses and neither gave me the job satisfaction I had been used to over the previous years.I had looked in to hypnotherapy a few times throughout my life but was never really drawn to any of the schools, but when the opportunity came along for a taster weekend it was just the nudge needed.
My first experience with hypnosis was in 2005 when was struggling with my Sports Therapy exams. Exams had never been my strong point and here I was in my early 30's with a 3 year old back in one of my least favourite scenarios.
I was introduced to a local lady who had been practicing for quite some time and in addition to my hypnosis session she taught me some self hypnosis techniques too, all of which led to me thankfully passing my exams and ultimately was the beginning of my career as a Therapist.
Since opening the doors of Bewdley Hypnotherapy in September last year, my belief in the power of the technique continues to grow stronger.
Seeing the positive impact this therapy has on peoples lives astounds me, it really is something quite special.
As a client you are not asleep, you generally hear every word and are able to communicate with me should the session require it. Most wake from the state of relaxation intrigued about the process.
I have worked with individuals from the age of 16 all the way up to 75, all have different reasons for coming in, but all have one goal - they want to create a positive change in their life and understand that the only person who can create that change is themselves. We have the resources within us, we just have to know how to tap in to them.
