My early adult life should have been near-perfect, loving husband, nice house, 2 beautiful children and most of the material things that should have made for a secure, happy and contented lifestyle. But something was missing. All of the creature comforts were available to look after the body, but mind and spirit were neglected. It was, fortunately, then that I was introduced to healing, my lightbulb moment! I experienced the transformation that a good therapist can bring about. I wanted to learn more and, to this day, I’ve continued to want to learn more.
After studying then practicing the Reiki Usui system I became sufficiently proficient to begin teaching others and working alongside doctors in a local medical centre. I then trained as a Clinical Hypnotherapist because I realised the mind and body are not separate entities. You cannot harbour thoughts of failure and be successful. Using these skills I had remarkable results for my clients with my weight-loss programme. So much so that I was interviewed on BBC local radio and I still do regular slots there.
Over the past 15 years I have developed a comprehensive and complementary skill set but it is the experience of working with my clients that has taught me the most. Someone with a purpose, a goal to strive towards, has their courage and strength redoubled, their spark of life shines brighter to illuminate their way forward. This is an attitude of mind I try to instill into my clients. Be certain that these positives are magnified if that purpose embraces not just ourselves but benefits others.
That’s why I love what I do.
