Since qualifying in 2003 I have work with adults, children and young people. I have worked in the NHS and private sector in inpatient and community settings. I have worked in adult acute and intensive care and acute adolescent inpatient. I have worked in adult and child and adolescent crisis community teams.
My background is in mental health where I have been a nursing assistant and then through university and qualifying as a mental health nurse. I am registered with the & Nursing Midwifery Council and a member of the Royal College of Nursing.
For the last 10 years I have been in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services CAMHS, inpatient, community crisis and for the last 2.5 years based in a mainstream school.
I was already working with young people on the basis that they were not good enough and assisting them to break and let go of limiting beliefs. I had great success in doing so.
When I found Marisa Peer and how she worked it fitted like a glove. Marisa pioneered a process called Rapid Transformational Therapy, RTT. As I read more and delved deeper into RTT I realised that this was a tool that could transform people’s lives.
In September 2018 I trained with Marisa Peer in Rapid Transformational Therapy RTT. RTT gives you a tool that no other therapeutic modality provides. It takes you to an understanding of the root of the issues and then sets in motion the minds ability to transform rapidly. There is no other therapeutic modality that has the ability to create such rapid and sustained change as Rapid Transformational Therapy.
I would not have taken on this process if I could not see the effectiveness of this. This process offers participants an opportunity to be able to let go of past experiences that have had a continued impact on their day to day experience of the world. It moves then to a new found sense of self. A sense of self that is based on who they are today, not what happened to them in their past.
I was one of the lucky recipients of a live session with Marisa. I am living breathing proof that this method can alleviate a whole lifetime of pain, hurt and living a mediocre life because your past has determined your present.
You become present, you live in the present and each day life becomes a present. You live from the basis of who you are, whole and complete. Balance and harmony return to life and the things that previously concerned you become of now concern. Your attitude and behaviour change. Habits of a lifetime begin to fade away as you no longer have any need for them.
When I was a baby I was discharged from hospital straight into foster care. I spent 3 years or so with the same family until my foster mother fell ill and couldn’t look after me. We were taken into social services care and into a children’s home. Social Services decided to reintegrate us back into the family home with both my parents.
This was the most horrendous decision as neither of my parents were capable of providing a warm, loving, caring and nurturing environment. In fact it was quite the opposite of this. Both of them were abusive and exacted their own lack of love, self worth and self esteem onto me. At the age of 5.5 years my mother left my father. He did not want to look after 3 children on his own and asked social services to take us into full time care.
We went to a children’s home in the Gloucestershire countryside run by Catholic Nuns. I was already traumatised having been terrorised by the abuse I endured. I was running on a program of fear, anxiety, insecurity, vulnerability, guilt, sadness and anger. The Catholic children’s home was an invalidating environment run on strict discipline and order.
Catholicism was rammed down your throat everyday. There was some warmth when I was a small boy which came from one of the care workers employed there. I managed fairly well until I was 11 at which point we left the safety of the village and went to a city school. It was then my life came into sharp focus. Here were lots of young people who most of had parents. I didn’t, I was different. I didn’t want to be different, although I knew I was.
I didn’t want to be known as or be the ‘kid in care’. From this point on I had to bury that part of me and bury him deep, and I did. I could not be that kid in care because of the potential for pain. I know from RTT that the brain steers us away from pain and towards pleasure. My association with the world was that it was painful and that became how I experienced the world.
I went through school trying to be something I was not. Trying to appear as if I did not care and that nothing affected or bothered me. I put up a hard exterior, walls made of steel. I smiled through the trauma to hide it. I failed at school, failed in my relationships, failed at work. I was on the wrong side of everything.
I fully understand what it is like to be when you are in the pit of misery. Nothing I did seemed to work for me. I changed so many things so many times in the hope that it would bring connection, love, happiness and money. It never did. I never believed that I was good enough for anyone or anything. Because I believed it, it became realised over and over again.
With grit and determination I changed what I believed about myself. I took full responsibility for my decisions and choices. I stopped referring to my past as reason for my present situation. I read books and did various other self help processes. As my beliefs changed about myself so my world began to reflect those changes.
Having been through this puts me in a unique position to be able to assist you on your transformational journey. It has given me the ability to relate to others and their experience and to know what they need so that they can be transformed.
When I help you I draw on my life experience to be able to help you understand and make sense of what happened and how it has affected you. I am able to provide you with what is needed to create profound and lasting changes in your life.
