Learn to love yourself and live with more self respect

Someone once said the secret of happiness is having someone to love, something to do and something to look forward to. There’s probably some truth in this, although it doesn’t mean you have to have an adoring partner, a high-powered job and a world cruise coming up to enjoy life.

The ’someone to love’ could be a friend, relative or pet, and the ’something to do’ and ’something to look forward to’ could be just about anything you enjoy.

But even if you have those three ’something’s they won’t sit well if you don’t love and respect yourself. In my experience, it is so true when people say if you can’t love yourself then you can’t truly allow others to love you.

When working with me, we will slowly dispel some of the myths that you have about yourself, unconscious beliefs that were formed a long time ago about who you think you are and what you think you can and can’t do. By peeling back some of the layers we can gently uncover the real you (normally a good, kind person) and then we start the process of re-engaging with yourself, speaking to yourself with love and integrity, putting yourself first where appropriate and updating those old self limiting beliefs that used to hold you back.

It’s not an easy process and there is always a box of tissues close at hand, I teach you how your mind works and the right therapeutic interventions to get new responses, new emotional control and a new sense of who you are and what you want from life – and how loving yourself more can release so many positive emotions.

There is homework too! These changes don’t happen overnight, but they are possible with the right guidance and the right tools. I make available a whole range of worksheets and recordings to listen to that will both relax and educate your unconscious and foster new responses and feelings within yourself.

Is it time to accept and love yourself?

I know it can be daunting to talk to someone about your personal concerns, but I can help, I’ll listen with no judgements and together we can explore what it is you want and the best way for you to get it – perhaps give me a call on 01280 823059 – we can just informally see how you feel about it.

“I was looking for help with weight loss but that was the just tip of the iceberg. I had no idea how much more was involved, or how it could be dealt with. John has so gently and skilfully guided me through sedating some difficult, unpleasant memories and experiences that were obstructing any progress I was trying to make on my own. I have learned so much about myself, some good, some bad, but all very worthwhile and productive, and I am beginning to “love myself”, which has been a huge stumbling block for me, but an important thing to achieve. It has been tough at times, but John inspires great trust in all meanings of the word, and he is as good as his word, he really can help. He has many different techniques at his finger tips, and there will always be one or more to suit the problem and the person. Losing weight has almost been a bi-product of John’s therapy for me, no problem, but the whole package is something I can never thank him enough for. I am almost ready to step out as a brand new person, with a brand new perspective on life and anything it wants to throw at me. John, you are one special gifted person.”
