My name is Hannah, founder of Master your Mind Hypnotherapy Northern Beaches.
Trust me, I know what it is like to feel out of control, powerless and battling against my own thoughts, feelings and ignoring my body and what it was telling me. I spent the best part of a decade in a really bad place both mentally and physically and just had no idea how to get myself out of it!
At 19 I started to become really sick with gastrointestinal problems. My bowel slowed down, I was constantly bloated with severe pain, acid reflux, nausea and vomiting. I lost a crazy amount of weight as I was unable to keep food down; my sleep was terrible and I became more and more weak and fatigued. What were the next 5 years like? Going through every test, procedure, medication and treatment under the sun, with still no answers. This took over my mind, my career, my relationships and my whole life!
As a result, I also developed an eating disorder from my fear around food causing pain and worsening my symptoms. I restricted everything I ate, cut out food groups, over-exercised and threw up anytime I felt uncomfortable. I was in denial of this for years as I just blamed my undiagnosed gut condition and refused to get help.
Just to add to this, I had some extremely high-achieving, perfectionistic and controlling qualities to my personality, I really struggled to deal with the pressures of working in the corporate world and competitive sporting world. My nerves, anxiety and inability to cope with set-backs, feedback from others and poor performance spiralled out of control, to the point where I would drive myself into the ground working and training all hours of the day in attempt to ‘prove’ to myself and others that I was successful. The thought of failure termed me. Was this helpful? No way! I lost all enjoyment and confidence for many years- what a waste of my energies!
I struggled on and on for so many years, not knowing what to do, how to get help or where to even start! It was so overwhelming! This is why I do what I do- I want to use my personal struggles, experience and many years of training to help others in similar positions to the younger troubled me. Everybody deserves the opportunity to feel supported by someone who truly understands what they are going through- you do not need to struggle for as long as I did, you CAN do something about it!
