I’ve had many pivotal times in my life when I felt I’d reached rock bottom – desperate “Bathroom Floor” moments & yet out of these came transformation. Having to step out of my comfort zone actually led me to expand myself & discover previously untapped skills & resources.
I remember sobbing in the bath towards the end of my Maternity leave from my corporate job, bereft at the thought of leaving my first baby, returning to work meant weeks away from her. Out of that desperation came a plan to apply for promotion – a job that scared the living daylights out of me because it meant embracing pretty much all the things I had no experience of! What drove me, was my overwhelming need to prioritise my daughter & that allowed me to suspend my fears & give it a go.
I got the job & much to my surprise discovered a talent for managing people, putting together presentations & even Public speaking & for several years it worked well for me. I was put on the Board of Directors, given shares in the company & lived a life that outwardly seemed to be ‘living the dream’!
But Inside I was a whirlpool of panic – becoming more & more unhappy & stressed & feeling that it was just a matter of time before everyone discovered I was a fraud.
After my second baby, the death of my adored Father & the cruelty of Dementia in my Mother, I crashed. My physical body told me very clearly that I needed to stop & I was diagnosed with severe Hypo-thyroidism -unable to get out of bed some days.
The advice & prescriptions of several ‘Specialists’ did little to return me to Health & after another “Bathroom Floor” moment, a friend persuaded me to try Homeopathy. I was sceptical but desperate to recover myself & to feel vital & clear. Again, that overriding need enabled me to step into the unknown & do something I would never have considered normally…
‘Bathroom Floor’ moments or physical Health crises are not easy or comfortable but I believe they are valuable signposts & opportunities for us, offering the potential for growth & change.
Homeopathy turned my Life around, & I do not say that lightly – it helped me feel better almost immediately & within a year I was back to myself. It also opened a door for me, showing me that I didn’t have to live a life that was keeping me feeling exhausted, small & not fully Me. Homeopathy led me to becoming conscious of my ability to make better choices in almost every aspect of my Life.
I started using homeopathy to manage my children’s minor illnesses & couldn’t believe that I hadn’t tried it before! My decision to study it further, to become a Practitioner was born out of a realisation that I could help not only myself & those I loved, but other women like me.
The illness & eventual death of My Mother during my 4 year training, began a journey for me to come to terms with her inability to Mother me in the way that I needed & the effects that had on most of my personal relationships.
That journey led me to work with various Holistic Practices, to understand the importance of our Maternal line & it’s influence on our patterns of behavior & physical Health! My work in this area has led to a feeling of deep love & connection with my Mother, my Grandmothers & indeed my daughter. It’s an area rich in healing potential & I love sharing that with other women.
I am very grateful to all my Teachers, Mentors & Practitioners in the fields of Homeopathy, QTT Personal Development, Bio-dynamic Psychotherapy, Cranio-Sacral work, Essential Oils, Meditation & more……Also My birth Sisters, good friends & the women I regard as spiritual sisters, for teaching me the value of support & collaboration with other women. Their teachings have enabled me to be the best Woman, Mother, Sister, Daughter Partner/Wife as I can & live a life that allows me to sustain that.as much as possible.
I am committed to expanding my consciousness, of what works for me – & to change or let go of what doesn’t. To share all that I have learnt & know to be helpful, with my Clients & witness it work for them too, is an ongoing pleasure.
