Nine months after my Mother died in 2010 I went to my GP who said I had low mood from grief.
I heard about Moodscope from the radio and joined that day. It has helped me so much, especially the daily emails, which, on my worst days were the only encouragement I had to get up and face the day.
Knowing there are people out there who understand is priceless.
I have worked hard to heal myself with professional help from a counsellor who is also a qualified hypnotherapist.
I wanted to share something with the Moodscope community. He taught me self-hypnosis. My key words are: "I am in control of my thoughts, my feelings and my actions".
But I was anxious that I wasn't doing it right. And the moment of realisation came when he said "There is no right; if it feels good for you, then that's fine."
This had an amazing effect on me as I felt free to be myself at last.
