If you had told me five years ago that I would be doing what I am doing now, feeling how I am feeling now, and looking like I look now I would never have believed it.

I had been working so hard to turn my life and myself into what I wanted but the reality is beyond my wildest dreams. I have been blessed with a very positive attitude and boundless energy, how could I have improved on this. But the truth is that I have. My energy has increased even more and I barely think a negative thought. I feel a quiet confidence that all is well and will continue to be so. Since studying Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy I have found a deep sense of peace, patience and happiness that is incredible. You know, feeling peaceful is one of the greatest emotions, in my opinion. Many people, when I ask them what they would really like, reply peace. When you feel peaceful, life takes on a positive perspective, mind and body relax, and a sense of wellbeing pervades.

I have always been a very busy person, I love being busy, always achieving, challenging, doing but of late I have realised that incredibly I am achieving more. It is a quiet, subtle change not the chaotic rushing of the past but a calm almost serene gliding through the day, and I am amazed as I was the proverbial bull in a china shop!

With all the challenges of the last year, I have calmly accepted things I would have normally ranted and raged about, but no more. I have either let it go or waited to see, and it has been fine. I feel philosophical, what will be, will be and what will be has more often than not, been in my favour.

I feel so blessed, I wake up every morning with a song in my heart, I feel like I have won the lottery or had a glass of wine, every day is blessed.

On the down side …… hypnotherapy has ruined my life ….. I can no longer have my Saturday night binges on big bags of crisps and chocolate, loading my basket with forbidden goodies for a night or two of gluttony. I just don’t feel the need anymore. I used to struggle every evening when I finished work, with trying not to eat anything which was not nailed down in the kitchen! I feel that empty space inside me has now been filled from the inside and I am no longer looking for something on the outside.

There is a passage in one of my hypnotherapy scripts which says .. the sunshine on the inside helps you to cope with the rain on the outside …. it feels so true …. in fact the sunshine on the inside stops you noticing any rain and any but the loudest storms.

I am one of the world’s greatest cynics but I now feel so blessed, and thank my lucky stars for my journey so far, for the discovery of Solution Focus Hypnotherapy and for all the other things, people and experiences that have brought me to where I am today. This isn’t the end, it is just the beginning. Thank you x
