“It was a long time ago when I put down ‘On The Road’ by Jack Kerouac feeling elated and wondering if I could really do it, live truly by my dreams. At that time I was living the life of an artist. I was a playwright in a grotty house share in Turnpike Lane. Lots of the elements were there, the poverty, the willingness to live on the fringes psychologically and emotionally.
But somewhere along the line, I got frightened. I started hunting around for a way to pursue my art with stabilizers on. I was afraid that if I continued on the path I was on, I was going to end up dead in a gutter.
This fear led me to make a decision that would change the course of my life: I went into teaching. Initially, it was meant to support my writing and stand-up comedy with a stable income. However, being a supply teacher turned out to be far more humiliating and depressing than any situation I had previously known. I became ensnared and seduced by the idea of being a proper teacher, a fully fledged and respected member of society. And that’s a great thing to be.
Only it wasn’t great for me. I couldn’t breathe. Not really. For nineteen years, I remained in a secondary school, suffocating. I would teach by day and write by night. Once my children came along, I would write in between everything else. I do not regret my children or having a beautiful stable relationship with my husband.
I do, however, regret the number of years I spent lacking the confidence to change or forgetting my dreams and talents. It was lucky for me that my mental health suffered to the point where I developed insomnia and didn’t sleep most evenings for about six months, bringing things to a head. It was this crisis that led me to hypnosis and the beginning of my transformation.
Following my treatment, I was able to see clearly. It didn’t happen overnight. The four sessions of hypnosis I had allowed me to deal with the immediate trauma and the damaged confidence that lay behind it. From there, I was able to identify my dreams and distinguish my unhelpful and limiting fears from the necessary ones.
My experience of hypnosis has been truly miraculous. Forward wind ten years, and as a result, I left teaching and am now living my life practicing hypnosis as well as performing once more and following my dreams.
Hypnosis, as a tool for building confidence, can be a game-changer when it comes to pursuing your dream life. It helps unlock the hidden potential within you, releasing the fears and self-doubt that hold you back.
