I thought I would write this as some patients have asked about my back story.
I was a shy kid growing up, I had a few close friends but I wasn't the popular kid at school. I never felt like I fit in at school and felt like an outsider, I use to think back then that the popular kids were the loud kids that were full of themselves, I wasn't like that, I was more reserved, kept myself to myself. Seeing this I thought that growing up I had to be loud and full of myself to be popular.
When I turned 18 I went down the night clubs but found that it was hard to interact with others (especially girls). I had little social skills and was painfully shy, this also didn't help much getting a job with job interviews. I use to get horrible anxiety in social situations, I couldn't do big groups, I just felt inferior to everyone. So when I got to my mid 20's I decided enough was enough. I turned to self help books and found out about Paul Mckenna's Instant Confidence book, this helped me a lot but I needed more, I eventually went to see a hypnotherapist and he helped me with my confidence issues. I was fascinated to learn about hypnotherapy after this and did a course in 2011, after this I studied NLP and Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
During this journey I use to practice hypnotherapy on my friends and eventually opened up my practice, its good to do a job that I feel so much passion about and being able to help others that were also lacking confidence and having anxiety issues.
