Healing Myself. Friday July 25, 2014

Nine months after my Mother died in 2010 I went to my GP who said I had low mood from grief.

I heard about Moodscope from the radio and joined that day. It has helped me so much, especially the daily emails, which, on my worst days were the only encouragement I had to get up and face the day.

Knowing there are people out there who understand is priceless.

I have worked hard to heal myself with professional help from a counsellor who is also a qualified hypnotherapist.

I wanted to share something with the Moodscope community. He taught me self-hypnosis. My key words are: "I am in control of my thoughts, my feelings and my actions".

But I was anxious that I wasn't doing it right. And the moment of realisation came when he said "There is no right; if it feels good for you, then that's fine."

This had an amazing effect on me as I felt free to be myself at last.
