Stress, Anxiety and Depression

Being diagnosed with stress, anxiety and depression in 2011 and struggling to find a way back from this without the use of prescription medication, not knowing where to turn for help or support is where her journey began.

Healing

Healing

Experiencing her first healing session in 2011, which left her feeling like she was walking on air. The first of many catalysts which brought about significant changes for her. She resolved then to be of service to others and find a way to make them feel the same way she had. Undertaking many self-development courses beginning with relaxation and Tai Chi, moving on to management, coaching and holistic therapy courses. Just when life seemed to be finding normality, a hysterectomy was needed, which was also quickly followed by redundancy.

Starting Again After a Hysterectomy

She never thought she would be starting again after a hysterectomy. Life was chaotic, working in the corporate sector as a Business Development Manager, travelling the length and breadth of the United Kingdom.

Just when she thought life was being kind to her, after overcoming stress, anxiety and depression. She was told she had stage 4 endometriosis and needed a hysterectomy.

Wow. 42 at the time and having no children, having to draw on her previous lessons to prepare herself for surgery. Her consultant suggested she take some time to consider her options: Another ten years (roughly) of agony for three weeks out of four. Mental health issues worsening and mood swings like you wouldn’t believe or, have a hysterectomy and hope that the pain subsided and she could go on and live a relatively normal life. (What is normal now?)

After having lived with 30 years of agony ten more wasn’t an option for her. she opted for the surgery. Three operations 18 month recovery time and to say nothing of the menopause, later. (Oh, and HRT). She has no regrets.

What did she do?

Read books, watched videos, joined groups, meditated and spoke to her GP, she already knew what decision she was going to make. Her consultant tried to talk her out of the surgery, but she knew she had to go through with it.

Grateful for having already done a lot of inner work around mental health. Had she not, she wouldn’t have coped as well as she did.

Her journey has opened her eyes to things, people, ways of life and love she never thought were possible not to mention the realisation that almost everyone has something in their life they want to change.  She believes her soul purpose is to be of service to others.
