If you were to ask me what Neuro-Training with Kinesiology was when I first started having sessions, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you. At that stage in my life, I was just too swamped and barely keeping it all together, let alone understanding the ins and outs of this new therapy I was having. I should also admit that in those days I had a very different mindset than I do now. I was extremely hard on myself and frustrated that I wasn’t able to achieve all that I desired.
So initially when things came up in sessions, I felt, ‘Here we go, something else I can’t handle.’ I saw my sessions as a means of fixing something broken… that being me. I went to sessions with shopping lists of things I wanted to change about myself. All the while telling myself ‘It will be alright, we just need to fix these things and everything will be alright.’ I had absolutely no idea about the underlining message I was sending myself at the time, which was, I just wasn’t good enough the way I was. The truth is I am good enough the way I am, more than good enough actually, we are all good enough the way we are. Neuro-Training doesn't fix you, you do not need fixing, it supports you to be the best version of yourself possible.
The sessions were definitely helping. When I came out, I felt calmer within myself and started dealing with things like never before. I started noticing everything that was wrong in my life (hence the shopping list). There were times I really struggled with this but I was committed, desperate actually, and set about chasing this feeling of calm.
Slowly, and I mean slowly, I started to change the way I saw the world around me. I got this understanding about what it would take to attain the wellbeing I was searching for and this became my highest priority. I really felt as though it was do or die for me. I now understand that my practitioner, through Neuro-Training with Kinesiology, and I, by implementing and working through what was coming up in sessions in my own time, were changing my neurology and therefore bringing about better options for my neurology to choose from when faced with challenge.
I started to make changes in my life that were vital in my achieving all that I wanted for myself. My practitioner suggested I look into being a Neuro-Training with Kinesiology practitioner myself. I will admit I was reluctant at first, I mean it took me 7 years to get my degree and I had worked a further 6 gruelling years as a teacher. What was she thinking? Suggesting this completely left field occupation, but in the end I had to face the situation I was in and make a decision as to whether I wanted things to stay as they were or find out if there was something else out there for me.
I am so grateful to that practitioner for helping me find my way to my truth. I made an appointment with a Neuro-Training with Kinesiology Practitioner/Lecturer in Adelaide to see if this really was something I might like to try my hand at. I left that appointment knowing without a doubt that at the very least I wanted to know more, so I enrolled in a Certificate IV in Kinesiology.
Once upon a time, I would have been hard pressed to ring up sick, so I can say without a doubt in my mind, that Neuro-Training with Kinesiology helped me get to the point where I could firstly, request to my employer that I work part-time, and later hand in my resignation all together. It was liberating, for the first time in a very long time I was hopeful about my future. I started to see the truth, which was I mattered as much as anyone else and I am here to say that I have become a passionate advocate for getting the message out there that 'We all Matter'.
It didn’t stop there, I realised that I hadn’t been happy living in Roxby Downs. I don’t actually think there is anything wrong with any place, but I came to understand that this place wasn’t right for me. I needed diversity and the space to find out who I was and what I wanted from this life. So we moved to the Adelaide Hills. This is where we moved from when we moved to Roxby Downs so it was like coming home.
We found a house on a few acres that was very much in need of some love and attention. I am amazed at the parallels, as this is the state I and my family find ourselves in also. I have been busy building my business all the while taking the time and care to nourish myself. I am still having Neuro-Training with Kinesiology sessions to this day, although now I see the Practitioner/Lecturer I had that appointment with in Adelaide.
