Becoming chronically ill changes your life and it can easily tip you over the edge into survival mode.
You suddenly need to be your own researcher, dietician and self advocate to find out what works to try to regain your health and energy, all at a time when you feel least able to do so. You have to deal with all of the people who think because you ‘don’t look sick’ that you should still be able to do everything you could before. You need to be able to work with doctors who are often not willing to listen or believe what you are experiencing is actually real and not ‘all in your head’.
What you need more than anything in this turbulent time is the right professional support to take you by the hand and teach you how to navigate the many griefs, fears and changes you are experiencing now.
When it comes to getting professional support, it’s essential that you work with someone who understands all of the complex psychological, emotional and physical issues that come with chronic illness and how you can not just survive them, but learn to thrive in new ways that you didn’t know were possible.
Welcome to Emotional Autoimmunity.
I’m Kerry Jeffery, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Counsellor and Award Nominated Internationally Certified Life Coach.
I am living well with four autoimmune diseases that affect every single facet of my life. I know all of the essential skills and strategies needed to make the difference between surviving and thriving with chronic illness because I have had to do it myself.
Now, I help people living with chronic illness world wide, make that difference for themselves.
Chronic illness changes your life and a new life needs new skills. My innovative, online programs get real results because they give you all of the essential skills, strategies and support you need to shift from surviving to thriving.
I’ve worked with two therapists in the past. Neither therapist had an organised framework for how the sessions would go, neither identified what I was missing, and neither was able to give effective long-term help despite both dealing with chronic conditions themselves.
You understood what I was going through, you had a plan, and you had tools. You listened to what I said, and you gave me useful examples from your own personal experience that I could relate to.
Other therapists do not understand the struggle and so they didn’t have any tools or skills that would help. I would basically complain to them and they would try to positive-talk me out of my thought patterns. It was such a waste of time and money, whereas, I made progress with you during our discovery session!
After our program I feel calmer, less stressed and anxious, happier in myself and more self-confident. I am not so worried about what other people think and more able to put boundaries into place without feeling guilty. I feel much less guilt generally, and guilt had always been a big factor for me. I feel much more hopeful for the future, able to stay in the present moment and enjoy my life more.
If you are ready to take back control of your life, and start the shift from surviving to thriving with chronic illness, then book your FREE Online Discovery Session with me now.
