First Aid for Stress

I searched for the antidote for stress for more than 22 years, I had suffered from the effects of heightened stress for so long… On the diagnosis of my cancer in 1994 my consultant stated very clearly that I needed to be less stressed. In truth, I didn’t know how to be. Every day was stressful from beginning to end, most of the people around me were continuously under pressure – stress was ‘normal’.  The truth was that I had no idea that my life and thoughts were so dysfunctional.

I undertook counselling and indeed I trained to be a counsellor. I deeply contemplated “what causes your stress?” Is it what is happening in your life? Your relationships? Financial issues? Your job? The weather? I believed, like many, that the answer was yes. Thank goodness, in time, I realised this was not the case, for that misunderstanding was wreaking my health, happiness, family and work life.

It took me fifteen years to start to get a grasp on the truth and a few more to gain enough knowledge and insight to finally heal myself. I hope that the process will be a lot quicker for you because in the meantime I absolutely know is that your happiness, health and well-being are being negatively affected.

The impact the Antidote For Stress had on me

When I first caught a glimpse of the way I worked (a human being) I was confused to say the least for it was the first time that I realised that I was not ‘broken’ nor was there ‘something wrong with me’, my mind and body worked perfectly! I’d qualified and trained teaching anatomy and physiology but this wasn’t in any book!

I remember thinking “I am just having thoughts and I’m feeling them. Yes people have done things that I really, really didn’t like but there’s nothing wrong with me”.

I’d wasted years trying to ‘fix myself’ and in that moment, there and then, I realised that there was nothing to fix –the sheer relief of that minor revelation was life-changing! I realised that to clear your negative emotions, improve your mood and feel generally ‘better’ that you simply have to reprogram your brain – you train it and ‘up level’ your emotions permanently as opposed to temporarily. Whilst this sounds technical and time-consuming surprisingly its not. I found that 10 minutes before I get out of bed and 10 minutes before I go to sleep daily for a week had an impact. Two weeks later I noticed a significant improvement in myself, other people noticed I was happier within myself too…

I use the best parts of many disciplines to create change. I’ve spent £1000’s learning what doesn’t work and indeed what does. I know that the antidote to stress and project phoenix supersede current traditional models commonly used in the emotional/ wellbeing/ healing services.

I look forward to sharing more with you soon. If you would like to attend my next intro workshop held in the Old Bakery Studios, Truro please sign up to my newsletter (top right hand side of the screen and I’ll send you the news)
