My name is Gina. My son Zayn is 14 months old. I have struggled quite a bit because my husband is posted to Afghanistan and my family are 200 miles away.
Zayn was born by emergency C-section and he had severe jaundice. He cried a lot and the more he cried, the more I cried. I came to see Paula at Plymouth Mind about my own mental health and she asked Annette to speak to me about using mindfulness to help calm me and Zayn. We did some 1-to-1 sessions and Annette thought me some great techniques. I feel they have made a huge difference to how I handle the bad days. I am calmer and better able to think freely without feeling so anxious and nervous. I will continue to practice the techniques each week.
