I've been there... I have been on this journey since my early 20's and I'm passionate about sharing the next chapters of my life, working with you.
By the beginning of 2020, I became aware that I was experiencing depression, which had been ongoing for some time. It wasn't the typical situational depression that arises from life's setbacks, but rather a deep, dark pain and fear that gradually consumed me. My moods were erratic, marked by explosive anger, paralyzing frustration, fear, anxiety, and hidden tears. However, when March 2020 arrived and the pandemic hit, I felt an overwhelming wave of relief. Despite the new reasons for anxiety and fear, I saw it as an opportunity for healing and self-care. I cherished the quiet days, dedicating time to myself through meditation, exercise, creativity, and reading.
In mid-June 2020, I returned to work as a mobile hairdresser for seniors and shut-ins. However, I quickly realized that something was missing - myself. I had lost touch with my own passion and reason for living. By mid-September, I started gaining weight, using it as a protective layer while sinking back into a deep depression. By the end of October, I had gained almost 20 lbs., yet no one seemed to notice. I was desperate for someone to see my pain, but it remained invisible. I felt terrified and desperately searched for answers.
During the fall of 2020, I came across multiple podcasts featuring Marisa Peer, a renowned therapist from Britain. It felt like the universe was sending me a sign, so I began following Marisa's therapy method called RTT® (Rapid Transformational Therapy). I noticed small shifts in my life and decided to pursue online training to become an RTT® Practitioner and Clinical Hypnotist.
What I've learned is that when depression and anxiety take hold, it's a clear indication that I am neglecting self-care and need to stop and listen. While I have always maintained a positive outlook and navigated through the normal ups and downs of life, I was unprepared for the depth of depression I had settled for. Through understanding the beliefs my mind had developed over time, RTT® has given me the freedom to choose again - to choose better and healthier beliefs. I still experience occasional moments of anxiety and mood shifts, but they are rare and easily defused, becoming a normal part of life. I now sleep deeply, experiencing healing rest that I hadn't enjoyed in years, and wake up feeling grateful and filled with joy.
I invite you to embrace curiosity, explore, and delve deeper within yourself so that you too can discover more of your own potential, purpose, and passion.
