"I was the kind of person who pushed through hard circumstances and tried to overcome them with accomplishments and hard work; people told me I was strong and they did not know how I kept going through some of the things I endured. I did not even realize I needed therapy until I began to experience anxiety, depression, and near-panic attacks and did not feel like myself. Therapy with Jane was a healing journey that has given me tools to handle difficulty in a much healthier way. I have learned to forgive myself for mistakes, accept being human, and ways to care for myself that make me a better family member, employee, and friend. I highly recommend Jane Parker to anyone willing to hear what she says and do the healing work."
"Jane, it was really good to process stories of my life with you again. After we talked, the word I was looking for was "enrich." Our conversations, your feedback, reflecting with me on the course of my life, evolving, your input - what it does is enrich my life and an understanding of it. Keep up the great work you do!"
Jane, I've said it before and I will say it again- you have changed my life for the better. You've changed it and saved it. If you ever need a reminder of your impact or your purpose, remember how much you have impacted me. You are amazing and a gift. I cannot be more thankful to you and for you. I know you would say I've done the work and probably much more profound and intelligent comments. But you were exactly what I needed to help me see things in myself that I didn't see nor believe.
Responses to Mindful Minutes
"I just read the article again and am really impressed how your three points nail it. Waking up in the middle of the night, I practiced using them and was amazed at the results. It's kind of fun being an observer - one can see the craziness behind some thoughts. You simplified concepts to make them easy to remember."
"I don't think I've ever said thank you for these mindful minutes. Although I haven't put all of them into practice, I've found some of them to be really helpful. In fact, I've used a couple on my son to help him in managing his tics. So thank you for taking the time to put these out there!" :)
