FROM ANXIOUS AND NEGATIVE TO FREE AND IN CONTROL
Before I came to see you I was feeling extraordinarily negative and anxious without being able to work out what was wrong. I was overwhelmed and not coping well at work even though I had been doing this job for several years and it was something I love. I couldn’t seem to find any positives in life and I felt like I was just existing. For someone who is normally in control, feeling so out of control and not knowing how to fix it was hard. I felt I should have been able to deal this on my own, but couldn’t. From the first session, I felt comfortable with you and I could open up. You asked the right questions which were helpful for me to explain to myself what was happening. So much of what you teach comes from your experiences so you know the tools work.
One of my biggest learnings was to be kind to myself and to recognise that the overwhelming emotions are not necessarily mine, just a result of past events. Now I choose to acknowledge them, use one of the tools you gave me and let them go. I feel like I have taken control back of my life again and can now move forward. It’s been a fabulous experience. Thank you so much I am very grateful. If you are feeling stuck make sure you find someone to help you like Mandy who will help you get to the root of the problem, recognise and release it and equip you with tools so you can move forward again in life.
Remember, anxiety doesn’t go away on its own. Allison
