Doreen says, “After many successful years as a purchasing and production manager in the electronics industry both here in the UK and Far East, I decided to follow my heart and changed my career to move into Hypnotherapy”.
I realised I had lost touch with who I was and had a desire to rediscover my true self. I resigned from my job in Hong Kong and set off travelling in South East Asia. This was a period of huge personal growth. I was committed to letting go of ‘looking good‘ and discovering my authentic self, it is amazing how often I trip myself up.
Hypnotherapy has changed my personal life from strife and resentment to love and calm. I spent years in inappropriate relationships not even aware how destructive they were.
When Everything Changed
What I now realise is that the universe is an amazing place, everything is perfect in its own way. I was STUCK, I wasn’t making progress, I wasn’t in the right PLACE. Then it was like I had been given the picture for the 20,000 piece JIGSAW of Life. I had been struggling as I didn’t really know what it looked like. No wonder I felt overwhelmed most of the time. What I thought was the BIG stuff, wasn’t going to work (not very well anyway) until the REAL BIG STUFF, like who I am BEING and how I FEEL and how I WANT to FEEL, fell into place. My brain was cluttered with self-doubt and old beliefs. Then in a AHA! moment, so many things fell into place after eventually taking myself back into therapy (I thought I should be able to do it all on my own, well I’m a therapist, for God sake!!). So many people played a part in the shift, I cannot thank you enough.
So what has changed? I hear you ask, at last I know what I WANT, I want LOVE, PEACE, JOY, HARMONY and ABUNDANCE in my life. Who doesn’t? I hear you say. The difference is I now FEEL the source of LOVE and ENERGY within me, I believe in myself and I want to share this experience with all the wonderful people who are in my life and who will come into my life. I now know that it wouldn’t really matter how many new techniques I learnt and mastered, I was never going to be the Therapist I want to be while I myself was feeling STUCK. There I was holding onto my old beliefs and other stuff for dear life and living small – for what? To keep me safe of course and in my Comfort Zone.
Ok, that is all very “nice” but what happened then? That’s the amazing stuff, I just see things differently. My head is full of ideas, I feel creative and my passion for what I do is bubbling. The law of Attraction kicked into action and I am not alone on my journey. Clients started to flow in. I have a vision of being part of a Spiritual Holistic Healing Centre, where the energy is full of love, peace, joy and harmony and together we make a real difference to the people who attend. This would be a place where, Doctors fight to send their patients. Where mothers insist their child must be treated. Where adults come to discover what is possible and live life to their true potential.
I FEEL FREE, free of the fear, the fear of not getting it right, of not being good enough, of thinking I have to do it all on my own, of not knowing enough – I will be learning for the rest of my life, how exciting is that?
I FEEL excited, alive, energised and happy. And so into action I go.
I am passionate about sharing the benefits of Hypnotherapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Therapy) EDT (Emotional Detox Therapy an advanced form of EFT) NLP and Inner Child Therapy with others, so that they too may feel released from what holds them back from living the life they deserve. Each and every client is treated will respect, non judgement, confidentiality and a belief you are a beautiful soul with huge potential and are asking for help.
