My Story

Its been a long bumpy journey to get me where I am today, and I wouldn’t change a minute of it.

My trauma and loss in life have lead me on a path of healing and self-discovery.

After losing my father at the age of 17, I went off the rails and dropped out of college. Lacking purpose and direction, I joined the British Army (The ideal thing to do when dealing with bereavement emoji). After completing four years of military service and one operational tour of Afghanistan, I left the army diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression. The military doctors and the therapists who were treating me were no longer able to care for me because my army contract had ended. I was left without any support, and my continuity of treatment wasn’t arranged with civilian healthcare providers.
After years of substance and alcohol abuse, a few overdoses, and a progression of my mental health conditions, I decided it was time for a change, even though the dark place I was in, change seemed impossible and out of my reach. I did not believe that good could come in my life, and neither did I deserve it.
This is where my journey with mind-body healing, self-development began. I read a book by Shaun Achor called before happiness, and I realised that if I ever wanted to create a happy future, I would have to work on my happiness in the present. I became more spiritually inclined and would pray and meditate. I read countless self-help books about positive psychology and mindset and started to consciously change my thought patterns. As we all know – this is easier said than done.
“The habit of thought precedes habit of action – first, we must change our thinking if we are to change our actions.”

One of the biggest game-changers for releasing my trauma, anxiety and depression was the use of hypnotherapy and EFT. Hypnotherapy allows you to enter a relaxed state where the subconscious mind is open to suggestions. Up to that point, I had been giving myself negative suggestion like “I’m not good enough, I’m a failure, I can never be happy, I have no prospects in life”. I went to practitioners and also used the hypnosis recordings that I would listen to every day.

Apart from doing work on my mindset- I also become interested in nutrition. I did a 7 day juice cleanse at a retreat in Portugal and felt fantastic! This sparked my intitial interest in fasting a nutrition.

In rapid time I noticed changes not only in my mood, but every area of my life started to transform. I had more energy, and I was more optimistic, I began to meet new people, I would enjoy the things I used love doing, I even learned new skills and launched a successful business!!! I didn’t need anyone to tell me that a positive mindset can lead to positive results because I had now witnessed experienced it myself. 

I don’t tell you this to brag, but to shine a light of hope into the mind of any of you who might be feeling a little helpless and hopeless like I once was. First, you need to believe that change can happen – and this can apply to any situation in your life. No matter how dark and painful things get, there is always hope for a better future. That starts with changing your beliefs and thoughts in the present moment followed by taking action in the direction of your goals.

2016 was another difficulty year for me. I lost my mum to cancer  and moved to Australia. Going through the process of losing both of my parents to cancer encouraged me to study a degree in nutrition. Im currently in my final year and have already completed a diploma of western herbal medicine.

 

After suffering from lower back pain for years- I was diagnosed with a autoimmune condition called ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Ankylosing spondylitis is an inflammatory condition affecting the sacroiliac (SI) joints and the spine. At its peak before the diagnosis, I would be unable to walk due to inflammation in my sacroiliac (SI) joints and spine. I resigned to the fact I would never get to play soccer again and worried about taking part in normal daily activities like playing with my son Noah in the park or going for walks. I was determined that I would heal myself naturally and achieve excellent health so I could enjoy life on my terms. I knew about the saying “you are what you eat”, since learning RTT I’ve also discovered that “you are what you think”. Utilising these two concepts, I changed my diet to a wholefood vegan diet cutting out processed and inorganic foods. I would incorperate water, juice and intermittent fasting to help restore metabolic function and reduce inflammation. I used EFT to release toxic emotions, anger, resentment, fear, jealousy while using RTT command cell therapy to promote healing in my body. To my amazement, I am now 100% pain-free. 

 

Due to the success I have had in managing my own autoimmune disease  without medications, I decided that I would share that success with others. I have now formulated a protocol that uses the same techniques I have used on myself  to help ankylosing spondylitis sufferers to live fulfilling lives.
