When it comes to my journey of self awareness, there are some people who stand out when I look back on where I have come from. And one of those people is Jenny Jones.
This is someone who is based in England and she is a healer/therapist.
The Next Stage
After having experienced hypnotherapy for a while, I came to see that I needed something else; this was in 2013. I wasn’t sure what that was, but I knew I needed something. I had seen many improvements through having hypnotherapy. My boundaries had improved, I began to feel more settled and I was able to let go of certain things.
However, while my mind was starting to settle down, the same could not be said about my body. I had an emotional build up and I needed to find someone to help me with the process of letting go.
One afternoon I went to see a friend and she recommended someone who did something called Shen Therapy. She said that this was for people who were ready to let and as I was at that stage, it would help me.
Her name was Jenny Jones and I soon got in touch with her to arrange an appointment. And after having Shen for the first time, I felt different. I felt more connected to my heart and I felt lighter, amongst other things.
Shortly after the session, I was amazed at how different I felt and I was also extremely grateful for having come into contact with Jenny. I could also see that this was how a therapist should be.
I was able to open up and share what was going on for me; I wasn’t forced to reveal anything or dismissed in any way. Whatever was going on for me was fine and not something to feel ashamed of.
And through feeling safe, I was able to open up and share my story with Jenny. I wasn’t invalidated and told to ‘just let go’ or that I needed to ‘move on’. In the past I had heard this from the people that I had worked with and it didn’t help.
All it did was make me feel weak and that I was missing something. Through being accepted, I was able to gradually let go of the emotional build up that I had.
When I went to see Jenny for the first time I thought I just needed to let go of the emotional build up that I had and then that was it. But this soon changed when a relationship I was in came to an end. The emotions I was aware of at the beginning were just the tip of the iceberg and I was soon at rock bottom.
The end of the relationship was the catalyst for me to face all of the emotions that had been trapped in my body since I was a child. I was emotionally overwhelmed, holding on at times. I was able to observe what was taking place, but I couldn’t do much else.
There were moments were I wasn’t sure I was going to make it; I was down and I wasn’t going to be getting up any time soon. And if it wasn’t for jenny’s assistance and a few friends who were around at the time, I might not have been writhing this.
While I couldn’t think my way out of it or exercise my way out of it, because of the understanding that I had of myself, I knew what was happening.
Something within me pushed me on and this allowed me to keep going and not to give up. And as the months passed and I continued to work with jenny, I was able to gradually move beyond these emotions.
Throughout my childhood years I experienced a lot of neglect and this caused a lot of pain. There was no one around and if there was, it wasn’t safe for me to show my feelings.
I had to repress my emotions and for many years they had been trapped in my body. I wasn’t really aware of them, but the impact they were having could be seen in every area of my life.
And because I was aware of my history, it enabled me to understand where these emotions had come from. So while it was painful when they came to the surface, I knew they had to be released at some point in my life.
So as I have said above, if it wasn’t for Jenny I might not be here now. I don’t forget the people that have made a difference in my life and I will always be grateful for coming into contact with Jenny. To find out more go to - www.wheeloflifetherapies.co.uk
