I had a traumatic birth experience four years ago which coincided with a difficult time in my life involving redundancy, moving house and starting my own business amongst other challenges. I developed PTSD symptoms and felt very depressed, and struggled to get the help I so badly needed. After a number of attempts to get support from my GP and the NHS referral I was able to get a self-referral for EMDR therapy which resolved my acute PTSD symptoms, but three years later I still felt negatively towards this period of my life. I felt that it was holding me back and I had unresolved negative thoughts and feelings.
I was fortunate to meet Kate at a local business networking event. Having searched for three years for specialist help, I was delighted to find her and we connected straightaway. Kate has a natural warmth and I knew straightaway she was offering the help I was looking for.
To be honest, when Kate asked me what I hoped to get out of our sessions together, I felt sceptical that I would achieve my aim of feeling more positive about the difficulties I had encountered. However after just one session I started to feel better, and by the penultimate session I felt like I had completely resolved my issue.
This marked the start of a ripple effect, with other aspects of my life starting to move forward in a more positive way. So the benefits have not just been about resolving the trauma and negativity I felt towards my past birth experience, it has also led me to enjoying positive impact on my life and work in the present, and feeling ready to move towards to a more positive future.
