I was on maternity leave from my job in Customer Service, with my second child, when I had the light bulb moment of deciding to re-train to become a Hypnotherapist.
Rewind 5 years, and I found myself in a really terrible place, mentally. I was pregnant with my first child and out of the blew I became extremely anxious, paranoid, scared, and a whole load of other emotions. This went on throughout the whole of my pregnancy and well into the first year of having my child. Thankfully someone introduced me to Hypnotherapy and explained that it could help with anxiety and depression. I went along for the Initial Consultation and the rest, as they say, is history.
Hypnotherapy changed my life for the better and I became a much happier, calm person and went on to have a lovely pregnancy and labour with my second child. The light bulb moment came during maternity leave, when I was starting to feel like I wanted something more out of life, and whilst I enjoyed my job and really appreciated the company I worked for, I just felt it wasn’t enough and that something was missing. I had just got home from a friends (who was suffering with anxiety) and I had been telling them all about hypnotherapy and how amazing it was and referred them to my hypnotherapist (as I always did if ever I came into contact with anyone suffering) and then it suddenly hit me that I needed to do it myself. I was at a point in my life where I was in a position to re-train and due to the fact it had changed my life I knew I was in a position to share it with others, as I had already been doing to a certain degree.
Suffice to say it was the best decision I’ve ever made and I’ve not looked back since making that call to book the interview for the course! 🙂
