To those who are suffering with depression, anxiety and low self-steam I understand the dysfunction this brings into your life. It can affect anybody and is often so misunderstood.
When I suffered from these symptoms in my late twenties the impact it had on my life is impossible to explain. I couldn’t understand why because I was young, healthy, good looking, had a good job, was married to the man of my choice who loved me very much. There was no apparent reason for my dysfunctional emotional state. This made it harder to accept.
I started searching for answers and went to one psychologist after the other finding no relief of my symptoms. This made me feel more desperate as I believed that I was beyond cure.
Only through the help of a trusted psychologist who practised hypnotherapy was I able to understand the origin of and overcome my own struggle with depression, anxiety and low self-esteem.
Through a hypno-analysis of my life I learned that getting married triggered my prenatal trauma. I was the 3rd of 3 daughters and my father, being a farmer was desperately hoping for a boy.
This was the origin of all my symptoms. I felt I was not good enough, because I wasn’t what he wanted me to be, I had a lot of anxiety in utero because I expected to be rejected by my dad and I was angry because it was unfair to expect me to be something I could not possibly be. This anger which I could not express was the origin of my depression yet I had no conscious memory of this and my parents didn’t think it was important to tell me about it.
When I got married this triggered my subconscious memory of my in utero experience. The subconscious mind being illogical, but remembering everything from prenatal perceived being married as similar to being in utero. You share a life with somebody and are dependent on this person for love, survival, etc just like in utero. My subconscious fears of rejection of not being able to do anything about it, were triggered by getting married. I subconsciously feared my husband would reject me.
I was helped to understand why I had these symptoms and to let go of my negative perceptions. This was my Eureka Experience. It started my healing process and I was eventually able to overcome my struggle with these debilitating symptoms.
Though it was the most difficult time of my life it became the cornerstone of my own personal journey and shaped the person I am today. It also shaped my career as a psychologist / hypnotherapist and I have a passion to bring that kind of healing to every patient who comes through my door.
As a result I’ve expanded my practice to include various methods to work with the subconscious mind namely, Hypnotherapy, Sandplay and EMDR. It is my personal guarantee that I do my best to help my patients to find relief from all forms of emotional pain that they suffer with.
