J - Anxiety/Depression

Since my father's death from cancer eight years ago and then my oldest daughter's psychotic depression a year later I found myself battling depression and anxiety. Things would settle for a while and then I would hit the bottom again. Medication was helping a bit but not enough. Christmas 2013 came and went as did my Grandson's 2nd birthday, I know that I was there but I felt absent from it all somehow. Work was becoming a daily struggle. I was having neck and shoulder problems caused by stress. A friend recommended I try an osteopath and while waiting for her one day I saw Janet's leaflets. It occurred to me that she might help me reduce the stress that was the underlying reason for the neck and shoulder pain. Janet has done so much more. Although I was never able to visualise the colours I was able to access the feelings and this was not always easy and many times upsetting. Janet has helped me to understand things about myself and how 'I' tick. This has helped me to realise just how much I love Nursing and that I'm not ready yet to stop. She has also been able to teach me some skills to help with the anxiety that sometimes troubles me at work. It's early days but Janet has also helped me to begin to improve my relationships with my husband and grown up children and also my work colleagues. But over and above that she has helped me to come to terms with living with Epilepsy and to be aware of things that keep me safe but also not crippled by anxiety about my future.
