I have had significant challenges in my life with anxiety over many years. I have seen various therapists and learned different skills to help me to manage my anxiety, and to identify various things in the past that were still triggering issues around anxiety in the present. And although I’d been able to develop strategies to lessen the impact, they have on my day-to-day life, I’d not been able to work out how to reprogram myself, to reduce the triggers happening.
I started to see Deb for group Pesso Boyden sessions last year, and it has been transforming. Deborah is great at explaining what is going on, at putting people at ease and creating an environment that feels safe. Within the sessions, I always felt that I had choices, of how far to go, of what I felt able to say or not. As we wrestled with deep questions and experiences, Deb held the space in a way in which I always felt safe.
For me the sessions have really helped me to connect deeply within my body, to create physical and emotional memories of what it is to feel really safe and connected within myself. I am learning to trust my inner voice, and through the sessions it has been like a deep re-integration of body, mind and spirit. I have a deeper felt sense of what it means to be safe, to be whole, to be me. I am more able to cope well with the interesting twists and turns of life, the challenges that arise, to trust my own intuition and hear my own voice.
