Former Army Private

“When I started hypnotherapy I was in bits. My anxiety was going through the roof; I couldn’t deal with anything. I was being bullied in my final placement before qualifying as a nurse. It wasn’t the first time I had been bullied, or attacked, and it was like everything was overwhelming me. In the past I had tried to commit suicide numerous times and I had been sectioned. I had a period of self harming. Now, just when I had recreated my life, it looked like I was going to lose everything. My husband had also had PTSD and then cancer.

“But now, I am no longer on any anti-depressants and I feel fine. I don’t feel so guilty about everything that has happened in my life. The annoyance towards my Dad and siblings, for the way they have treated me, feels like it has just evaporated. I don’t feel useless any more. I feel worthy.

“I am working in a hospital now and although I was really scared to start with, and it was very stressful, and I was afraid I would be bullied again, I have settled in and I am really flying. I feel like a real nurse. I am doing it. I AM a real nurse. I feel resilient now. I can stand up for myself. I can see a bright future. For the first time in as long as I can remember I feel happy with me, and confident. It’s marvellous.”
