I’d like to share my story so you can understand how I came to be where I am and how I can support you to do the same for yourself.
And So It Starts…Anxiety
I used to worry a lot– as a child, teenager and adult. I was anxious. As a new mom, when asked how I was doing, I replied with, “I’m fine”. But I wasn’t.
I didn’t realize how stressed and anxious I was as I got used to my “new normal” until I found myself at a breaking point. I had to help myself and, at the same time, one of my children, who was struggling to overcome some profound challenges.
We explored an array of therapy modalities, parenting groups, and many other avenues for help. Unfortunately, nothing helped much, and we found ourselves back at square 1 after every attempt.
A Bit of a Mess, Or How I Fell in Love with Hypnosis…
When returning from a family vacation, where my stress had reached new heights and I could not enjoy the precious time away, I decided to meet with a hypnotherapist. After only two sessions I was able to see things differently, have hope and feel like I could gain back control of my life–I was hooked on hypnosis!
I completed my basic hypnotherapy training and became a certified clinical hypnotherapist. My challenges quickly transformed into blessings. Now, not only could I help my children thrive, I could also create a safe space and deep understanding of my clients to support them on their path to transform their challenges into a brighter future.
A Life of Growth
I used to suffer from high stress levels and severe anxiety, which I often thought was a normal state. Through hypnosis and self study, I learned that I can almost eliminate my stress completely and reduce my anxiety substantially. Finally, I was able to enjoy life, I was able to experience new things (like walking on a suspension bridge). I conquered fears (I had a terrible fear of flights, and panicked in the dentist’s chair). Now it’s time for me to help others live the life they deserve.
My passion is to help others overcome their anxiety and create a life where they can thrive.
A growing number of people — children and adults — suffer from anxiety, especially GAD (General Anxiety Disorder), and are too scared or ashamed to talk about it. They tend to isolate themselves and pretend that they are OK. I used to be one of these, but I managed to replace those patterns with healthier, supportive ones.
For the Love of Sport
Sport has always been a big part of my life. I’ve played a variety of sports from a very young age – basketball, martial arts, swimming, volleyball and tennis. I fell in love with tennis and played it competitively. However, due to my competitive personality, I found it extremely difficult to self-regulate my emotions on the court. Through tennis, I eventually learned a lot about overcoming adversities, and it became very clear to me that the mental game is as important as the physical game.
In my 20’s, and as a result of my tennis and athletic journey, I coached others on how to maximize their athletic performances.
This is the reason I find Sports Hypnosis practical and effective. Hypnosis for Sports Performance can help change unhelpful patterns, create pre and post competition routines, remove mental blocks, assist in overcoming injuries faster, regulate emotions, increase focus, and more. I wish I had used it during my own competitive tennis years.
