“Born in London 1969, at 10 months old I was sent away to live with my grandparents in India. Six years later I was suddenly brought back to London and met my parents for the first time. To my shock I discovered I had two sisters and a brother. Having spent six years in a rough part of India, I was unable to speak a word of English and my parents struggled to understand my use of the Indian language. The confusion, unable to communicate and fit in, made me withdraw. Feeling lonely and vulnerable I became a victim to the cruelty of the world around me.
My extremely difficult and unhappy childhood, led to me
having many fears and insecurities, where I developed lots
of phobias from common ones such as snakes and spiders
to phobias of certain foods like rice, broad beans and even
sometimes afraid of certain people. My insecurities lead to
an obsessive behaviour (compulsive disorder) of continually
checking doors, counting squares and washing my hands. In order to seek comfort I often resorted to eating large
amounts of cakes and sweet food, hence having the added
pressure of being overweight and feeling unattractive. Due to peer pressure at
school, I started smoking at the age of 11.
Even though I was afraid and insecure of many things, I continued my life through adult hood, got married and had a lovely little boy. Unfortunately, the marriage didn’t last, struggling with a little baby and a job I hated, life became even more difficult and due to feeling extremely unhappy and depressed, I contracted Meningitis and almost died.
During my three months of recovery, I finally made the
decision, I was not going to continue to live like this,
life is too short and things had to change.
This was the beginning of my journey to self-improvement. After reading lots of books and listening to many tapes I discovered NLP, the key to the doorway that changed my life forever. With the combination of techniques including; NLP, TFT, Hypnotherapy and correcting my Timeline I was finally, ‘like magic’ able to free myself of all my phobias, addiction, emotional and physiological problems. These techniques have allowed me to live a fulfilling and happy life”.
