Janine helped me at a time when my confidence was at its lowest and my anxiety was getting in the way of exam success. I was retaking an exam for the third time and dealing with resentment, anxiety, anger and OCD symptoms. I wanted to kick every bin I saw, my anxiety resulted in breathlessness and it took me 20 minutes to leave the house as I had to check every plug socket over and over again. I was desperate for help and so I contacted Change for Success.
We worked through a range of techniques to give me back control of my emotions. We used visual relaxation techniques to help me sleep and to focus on the day. EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) immediately stopped my compulsive behaviour after one session. A re-framing session allowed me to determine where my perfectionism stemmed from and to turn a negative memory into a positive one.
I honestly felt like I would have imploded without her help. However, instead I passed my exam. I am actually looking forward to the next one and I am excelling professionally and personally. Janine helped me to open up about my feelings and I have since been able to share a blog about my own battle with resilience which has resulted in other people getting professional help.
If you feel for one second that you might need some help yourself, I would highly recommend Janine at Change for Success – it changed my life for the better.
