‘Beginning to smile again’
The Autumn of 2018 turned my life upside down, my 3rd grandson was born prematurely and was critically ill and during the same weekend my beloved partner passed away. This was followed by my son being the victim of an unprovoked attack and sustaining severe brain trauma and the passing of my grandmother, all within six months of each other. This amount of trauma had such an enormous effect on me: I felt lost; and out of control; I couldn’t sleep; although when I did I had the most horrific dreams. I had met Katie through work and when I knew she was looking for people to work with I felt I had nothing to lose, I needed help and although medication from my doctor had helped a little bit, the feeling of panic and loss were overwhelming. Katie is very friendly and welcoming and working with her has been amazing. During my first session she explained about how your brain deals with trauma by using responses to previous trauma and this made so much sense. At first I found it difficult to list anything positive that had happened but as the weeks went by I began to really appreciate all the positive things I have in my life. Katie was always calm and encouraging and her therapy room is very comfortable and relaxing, and her snugly blankets offer just the right amount of comfort! I think it took about 9 weeks for me to start to feel more like myself, I began to sleep soundly through the night and remain calm and unanxious. I would recommend hypnotherapy to anyone considering it. It has been amazing I feel so much lighter and brighter and am beginning to smile again.
