After years of being plagued by depression and bipolar disorder and sinking deeper into despair, when Colleen experienced a slight reprieve and expressed a desire to finally climb out of the hole, her psychiatrist seized the opportunity. She encouraged Colleen to enlist the help of the author, a Cleveland area complementary energy practitioner, to undertake the soul work that years of traditional therapy and anti-depressants had not resolved. With the help of a variety of energy therapies, including EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), RoHun Therapy (a form of spiritual psychotherapy), Light Journey Work and ongoing breath work, Peggy and Colleen were able to energetically release the black cloud that Colleen carried with her. After 11 sessions over the course of nine months, Colleen dramatically improved her life by continuing to use the tools the author introduced in their energy work. Colleens Story is a courageous account of personal discovery. This article provides a roadmap for using complementary energy therapies in tandem with traditional approaches to bring about ease of suffering and transformation. Most importantly, it was Colleens commitment to change that made the transformation and ongoing journey possible. This heartfelt article will bring hope to many who work with clients challenged by long-standing depression and bipolar disorder which have not been eased by traditional therapy and medication regimens.
