The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
My background as a Mental Health Nurse has gifted me the opportunity to work with people experiencing various complex mental health needs, including depression, anxiety, Personality Disorder, Bipolar and psychosis. However, I quickly learned that these diagnoses did not explain the origin of the person’s distress and that actually the common theme was that each person had experienced a trauma of some kind. Realising this, steered me towards therapies such as Paul Gilbert’s Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) which incorporates a number of ideas and concepts such as attachment and developmental theories and mindfulness some of which fit very well with EFT and Matrix Reimprinting such as working with multiple selves. Understanding that many of the traumas people experienced were relational due to living and interacting within various and sometimes complex systems, I also trained in family interventions and have worked with many families affected by trauma.
Although I loved my job and was grateful for the privilege of walking alongside people on their healing journey, as I progressed professionally, personally and spiritually I began to feel that there was something missing from my practice. I knew that people benefited from therapies such as these but sometimes it felt that the healing was at a superficial level and I wanted to be able to do more.
I was drawn to EFT and Matrix Reimprinting because of the concept of the matrix, working with past traumas and interacting with the parts of our consciousness that were stuck in these moments. I chose to train and qualify as an EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner with Karl Dawson; one of only 28 EFT Founding Masters worldwide and the creator of the evolutionary Matrix Reimprinting. The training really cemented the path for me, I loved that the technique worked on an energetic level and left space for imagination. It felt gentle, yet powerful but overall it felt authentic.
As with many people who progress into healing, I have had to overcome challenges and traumas myself. This not only resulted in a personal understanding of suffering but of the strength and vulnerability it can take to go through the therapeutic process and towards healing. Of the therapies I have tried myself over the years, some have been helpful and some potentially damaging but all have been lessons that have led me to where I am today and helped to shape the values and ethos of Freedom 2 Heal.
I have also worked with EFT and Matrix Practitioners in my healing. If you would like to read about some of the ways that EFT and Matrix Reimprinting has helped me please click here
