The backstory to the therapist. (it’s needed to complete the business breakdown story)
One afternoon back in early 2006, I saw one of my best friends, a man who had become like a brother to me.
He seemed different.
He was talking and behaving differently. He was calmer and more peaceful. Of course, I wanted some of that!
He explained the work he’d been doing with a therapist who was using hypnotherapy and psychotherapy to help him to sort out his issues.
So I asked for her number and it took me 3 weeks to finally call, but call I did…
I would have my session with the therapist, then talk to Dave on the way home about it every week for 2 years, with a small gap in the middle as I had run out of money.
Ironically as my depression hit.
Dave had already completed a year with her and was the experienced sounding board I needed.
He was able to “frame” things for me and also help me to stick with them, even when I wanted to run!
The therapist used all sorts on me!
Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, NLP, ETF or tapping, counselling, and audios.
She was also trying out lots of new ideas for me and has played a big part in where I find myself today.
Initially, I got used to the wonderful, yet lengthy process of digging into my history, including my childhood.
Finding an issue, bringing it up to the surface, and letting-it-go.
Then talk it over to understand it all. It was amazing!
I gained a sort of “Ph.D.” or “Masters Degree” by way of intense personal experience.
Then she applied the shorter and faster process she was working on, as her skill set increased even more.
It was definitely faster, but it still didn’t have an everyday foolproof way for me to know what demons or issues I still had, that were affecting my life, without needing her help.
