Ben’s story

This month we look at Ben’s story and how Anam Cara is able to take care of all aspects of his recovery and subsequent journey towards health and happiness. Ben has discovered just how intricately and intrinsically body, mind and spirit are linked. He is working with Sonia, psychotherapist, and also our CHEK practitioner and EFT practitioner. These are Ben’s (not his real name) words:

I was at rock bottom by the time I walked through the door of Anam Cara. Physically and psychologically, I was in such pain that I went simply out of desperation. I didn’t know what else to do. I just couldn’t cope any more.

I’m in my fifties now and my back problems began in my teens. Several times a year, I seize up and I’ll be stuck for four or five days. But recently it started to get even worse and started to affect me not only physically but psychologically. Any time I was away from home, I was in a complete panic.

 

Someone listened at last

Working with Sonia was remarkable, not least because I’ve never really talked to anyone about myself as a child but I found myself opening up to her immediately. We’ve been dealing with tensions that have been in me since childhood and I feel a great weight has been lifted.

 

Learning to move again

The CHEK practitioner taught me how to do very basic movements all over again. My body had been compensating for my injuries to such an extent that I had to relearn something as simple as how to lift my leg properly. The practitioner is incredibly precise and methodical.

 

Tackling difficult emotions

EFT helps to release stuck emotions. My work with the EFT practitioner has been challenging but there’s light at the end of the tunnel. I have been going to Anam Cara for about five months and I am turning my life around. At last I’m thinking of the future.
