From Fear to Freedom: A Jouney of Healing Trauma and More with Darren Johnson
I LOVED talking with Darren Johnson on this episode today! He's so open and easy to relate to. If you've ever lost a job, you'll know the impact it can have, yet some might not understand that it can actually be rather traumatic. Having that happen in his life, it brought a realization that there may have been other things considered 'trauma' in his life that were affecting how he moved forward. He shares so honestly about his own earlier very traumatic experiences in his younger years,  such as losing him mom and a horrible experience of violence, and how the work he's doing for others now actually helped him heal from those difficult times in his life. Darren is from the UK and now living in Bulgaria with his busband and three dogs, and has been there for the last 7 years. His background was in SEO content, and finance, and because of his personal experience with anxiety, PTSD, trauma and more he has now trained and been certified in hypnotherapy.  You can find Darren at his website: Darren Johnson Hypnosis And you'll find him on his socials right here: Darren Johnson Facebook Darren Johnson LinkedIn   Please come join me in the Change Gang Group on Facebook!

From Pain to Power:Using Hypnosis for Healing Multi-Symptom Issues with Melanie McCool
I have to thank Melanie for being so very open and honest about her journey of healing a multi-symptom breakdown in her body and mind, and why she made the decision to train to heal others experiencing what some term 'life long issues' within a very short time frame.  Because she ended up 'sick', she chose to heal physically, mentally and more!

Military Minds and the Journey to Courageous Conversations About PTSD with Gareth Evans
Dec 14 2023
Military Minds and the Journey to Courageous Conversations About PTSD with Gareth Evans
I'm very happy to have Gareth Evans back on podcast today. He was the first episode of the side series Triumping Over Trauma.  Today's conversation with Gareth focuses on not only his own concerns of navigating PTSD while in the military, but opens the conversation up to encompass so many who have felt for so long that it's not possible to ask for help. These episodes are meant to help educate, encourage and guide anyone suffering from trauma, PTSD, CPTSD and/or any of the related sypmtoms that may be causing you difficulties in your life.  Gareth is a British Army veteran who served for 20 years, including 15 with the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, and was frequently deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. The losses, experiences and a vexatious allegation, along with a history of a challenging environment growing up on a rough council estate in England, with a authoritative mother and a father with a fiery temper, eventually led to a diagnosis of PTSD for himself.  His own journey of trauma recovery led him to embrace Rapid Transformation Therapy and the hypnosis protocol from The Beat Retreat, and more. In bringing together all he learned, he established his own business, Remaster Your Mind, a mental health coaching company, that brings near instant results for his clients.  He offers a variety of services, from one to one VIP packages, to group programs. One thing he reminds everyone is that it's important to remember that it's not just what you think, but why you think it.  You can connect with Gareth on his website: Remaster Your Mind Or on his socials here: Remaster Your Mind - Facebook Remaster Your Mind - Facebook Group Remaster Your Mind - Instagram   You can also come join us in The Change Gang Group here: The Change Gang Group And grab some great freebies here!
