When I joined the Bel Canto School of Singing I discovered that everyone can learn to sing. Learning to sing more freely and naturally with meaning gave me a sense of purpose and the desire to improve other aspects of myself. This took time, not just because real and lasting change takes time, information on wellness was not so available and I had few examples of others who had successfully transformed their lives.
Freedom in Authenticity
I found my way by engaging with holistic practices and therapies. I started to recognise my stress triggers and to understand the connections between trauma, depression and anxiety which had caused me to live a very timid and restrictive life.
I changed my diet, reached a healthier weight, exercised regularly, meditated, I joined yoga and dance classes. I challenged my negative thoughts and became more positive. I took classes in assertiveness and conflict resolution. In a few years I became pain-free, less prone to infections, more confident and effective in communicating.
