I'm probably not very different to you.
I have experienced trauma in many different forms and I have witnessed friends and loved ones experience things I would never want anyone to go through.
In 2004, I began studying counselling, I wanted to help people with their issues but I found the idea of clients visiting repeatedly - for maybe months at a time - wasn't really 'sitting right' with me. So I walked away, feeling quite frustrated and disappointed and focused on having a life of 'normality' whatever that was.. Turns out its not all it was made out to be and instead, led to more trauma.
Years later I found myself wondering about my long term job satisfaction and questioning what I really wanted to do for the rest of my life. I was working in drug, alcohol and mental health services and had many long conversations with the people I was supporting, it was obvious where therapeutic intervention would have allowed them to walk a different path instead of wasting years of their lives in pain. This made me realised there was more I could do to help people get back on their paths to happy fulfilling lives... I began training in Hypnotherapy and discovered that the world of therapy I walked away from all those years ago had progressed since my earlier days.
My discovery led me to IEMT (among many other amazing therapies), which I am now trained in. I also stumbled upon and trained in OldPain2Go - I am able to facilitate clients to help themselves out of long term chronic pain.
I am continuing to add to my training so keep an eye on the site over the coming months for updates!
