What is Courage?

What is Courage?

Feeling the fear and doing it anyway, as a special needs mum I have had to find courage in buckets to continue day in and day out with what needs to be done.

Like an Angel courage keeps you going when you normally would not have the strength or determination to keep going. 

Courage supports you through the tough times and reminds you of the inner strength you have always had.

Have you ever been asked the question : "I don't know how you do it?"

It is a question I get asked quite often when people learn about my life and my answer is always the same…

I don’t have a choice this is the hand I have been dealt, so all I can do is make the most of it.

Would I wish this on any other person, of course not, it is not an easy road but one I wouldn’t change…

Yes you read that correctly, I wouldn’t change our life…

Of course if I could take away Gabby’s seizures I definitely would…

But the lessons we have learned and the strength we have gained through this process called life has been amazing.

Yesterday, saw Gabby’s seizures return, partially due to her being unwell and partially to the stress our family was experiencing.

I do very well in crisis situations, jumped into action put all our monitoring back in place to ensure her safety overnight, so I could get some sleep.

Now for me this is where the courage kicks in, it is in those quiet moments when everyone is OK and I have to deal with the emotional fallout of what we have experienced.

Having the courage to see and feel the emotion allowing it to flow through me without the need to push it down and ignore its purpose.

I see myself as the Lioness of our family, protecting them to the ends of the world and once all is quiet I retreat and lick my wounds.

What does the word ‘Courage’ mean to you?

How you can work with me privately:

“I am a Holistic Counsellor and Accredited & Certified Clinical EFT Practitioner based in Pimpama, Gold Coast, Australia.

My approach is to bridge traditional and alternative therapies, my experience has shown me that being a bridge between the two worlds and combining talk therapy with EFT Tapping is very effective.

You don’t have to wait till all the wheels fall off to ask for help, I have noticed with some of my clients that this is where they have to get to before they will reach out.

My role is to provide a safe space for you to express how you are feeling, knowing I will hear you; I will understand you and I will validate how you are feeling.

I help you to find what is causing you to feel the way you do and using EFT to help heal the underlying cause.”

Sessions available in person on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia and online worldwide.
