In the Fall of 2009, I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Upon hearing the news, a flood of emotions overcame me putting me into a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual shock. I felt outside of my body, disconnected from the reality of the situation, and struggling to understand the events that would take place within the next few days. While in this “spin”, I decided to try to do hypnotherapy sessions with Alpha Mind Coaching, which I at first was hesitant to try. After the first session, I felt as if some order had been restored to my life. The following daily sessions leading up to my surgery brought my anxiety level down to the point where I felt peace and calm going into the operation.
Subsequent sessions of hypnotherapy enabled me to endure four months of chemotherapy with a quiet mind focused on the beneficial results of the treatments as opposed to their side effects. The sessions helped me to distinguish and discern fact from the hysteria associated with chemotherapy, which eased the side effects I did experience.
Hypnotherapy has provided me with lifetime techniques to use whenever I feel negative moods, emotions or thoughts surface that would be detrimental to my continued healing process.
