When I left school I became a radiographer. It kind of made sense because my parents were both nurses and it felt familiar.
In my early 20s I developed a knee injury. I was treated several times by my doctor but the issue always came back - and quickly. I could see we were not getting to the root cause of the issue and mentioned this but it went over the doctor’s head - again and again.
After discussing the problem with some of the doctors I worked with, I realised that the way doctors look at problems is all to do with symptoms, and treating symptoms. Nothing about why the symptoms developed, what caused and was probably still causing them. (Unless it was a traumatic injury and the cause was obvious.)
It was a lightbulb moment for me. Surgery seemed to be the only thing on offer, and I’d already spent enough time in orthodox medicine to know I didn’t fancy such a drastic treatment, especially as it didn’t address the ‘root cause’, nor was the doc even interested in looking for it. And his zeal to cut parts of me out with so little investigation was a bit alarming!
I realised I was not going to solve my knee problem this way, and off I went to explore the world of alternative medicine.
I worked as a radiographer for a few more years, and after having my babies I left the medical world to be a full time mum for a while, feeling disillusioned with it all.
But the theme of getting to the root cause really resonated with me and stuck in my head. It really changed my whole world view as I delved into energy healing, belief coaching and mind therapies. I brought my kids up using more alternative forms of healthcare and home educated them. I was not afraid to change things up if what was considered 'normal' wasn't working for us.
In the end I kept coming back to how powerful the mind is, how it is the root of so much of our pain and how we are driven by our belief systems.
And then I discovered Marisa Peer. She started a bit of a revolution, getting us all to write "I am enough" on our mirrors. When she started teaching, I was passionate about wanting to learn from her and I was privileged to become one of the first pioneers on her Rapid Transformational Therapy training course.
I love this work. Getting to the root of why people do what they do, and seeing them change is an endless source of fascination for me.
