6 weeks ago I embarked on something that I felt in my heart was needed in the world but I wondered would it be able to make a real difference. I hoped with all my heart it could but I was still uncertain it would be able to scratch the surface. In my work I deal with people with some pretty deep traumas and I wondered could any one thing make enough of a difference. to truly help transform their lives. I have bee inundated with messages and they are truly the bravest people I know... as I know what courage it takes to look deep within and shine a light on those dark places we would rather keep buried. I wept as I read each of these below and I am so beyond proud to have listened to my heart and created something special for the world and those who needed it. kx

'My heart was broken and still has many cracks but if superglue had a name on it Kirsty’s stamp would be in my heart ...she has helped me more than she can know ...for 6 weeks she took my mind from the deep darkness of grief and allowed me to grieve in the light. You can't cure someone in weeks Kirsty Spraggon is not a miracle worker but she does change lives ..it takes more than a snap of her fingers to make us see ...she gives us choices and with her guidance we take that road and we face head on what it offers us ...she is always there by our side telling us it's fine ..it will pass ..I swear it's even in her Australian accent'.

A few months ago I felt as if my world was pulled right out from under me. I cried non stop, I couldn't eat, sleep and desperately wanted to leave this world. Of course leaving my two children was out of the question however I didn't know how to get passed these feelings. I was lost.

At first I was a little leery about an online course & not sure I could participate the way other's would. After the very 1st video, I did my assignment for the week and I looked at others assignments and I instantly some how felt like I was where I needed to be. I looked at things I was grateful for that I may have been taking for granted. I realized what I was doing to numb my pain, and by doing so I had been numbing all of ( what could have been my happiness ) I learned there are so many people out there with the same sort of feelings I was having.
All of the weekly video's had points that just some how clicked with me. Some weeks were more difficult than others. There was a point I was feelings things I wasn't ready to feel and thought I might even quit but NOPE!!! That was not an option.

I was able to share with the group my "Dirty little secret", a few of them actually but one in-particular that was an actual secret!! I can't tell you how much different I feel not having that buried inside me any more. I feel free. I feel lighter and I see a light ahead of me that has been clouded ( or maybe even "numbed") for so many years.

Yes, I still live in reality, my life is not perfect , I am still going through a very rough spot in my life, but I can honestly say I have learned to set back, look at what is going on, think about why I am there, what I want to do about it and think before I act. I have learned I can cry and I can FEEL, It's just up to me to figure out how to change those feelings if needed,
My favorite lesson is that" You have got to feel in order to heal.”

I have taken a lot away from this course and would recommend it to anyone holding in a "secret" or "shame" or just needs a little wake up call with dealing with their emotions.
Thank you , Kirsty, I appreciate every moment of these 6 weeks.

Before this course I'd only told 1 friend my secret. Within this 6 weeks I've told 3 more people. My "secret" isn't a bad thing anymore, nor is it a secret, it's a part of who I am and has helped to make me the person I am today. You truly don't realize the strength of a friendship until you share your secret!

"When I met Kirsty I was so moved by her story and her courage. I was drawn to her strength and I wanted a piece of that, so I joined the online course, Releasing Your Secret’s and Shame.

The course work allowed me to turn a vicious cycle of shame, low self-esteem, denial, sadness and loneliness into feeling supported, connected to others, having hope, and really being in a place of acceptance, focusing on the solution.

The week 5 video hit the nail on the head for me, teaching me how to express my truth in a healthy, loving way. It's been a process, learning how to step out of my comfort zone and try something new. It has also been the most loving thing that I can do for myself.

Through this course, I have been able to trust and share on a group level without judgment. This work is for anyone who wants to grow learn, accept and challenge their shame, guilt, loneliness, or negative self-talk. I would take it again with a friend! Changing the way I see the world and how I fit into it."

"If we change the way we look at things, the things we look at will change."

How's that Kirsty? Maybe you can use something here!!

Initially, I wasn't sure if this class was right for me because the word "shame" was used - a word I always associated with people who had been abused or traumatized in some way.  What I learned is that we can experience shame as the result of perfectionism - from comparing ourselves, our accomplishments and our milestones to others or by setting unrealistic standards for ourselves.  "I should be doing more, making more, accomplishing more..." is one type of shame that keeps us stuck.  I've learned to catch myself when engaging in "I should" behavior and to trust in the process and struggles that are part of accomplishment.   I recommend the course to others who understand that moving forward starts by looking within.

First and foremost I need to thank you Kirsty , this course has helped me in so many ways ...I have literally changed the way I think , I'm aware when I become overwhelmed and I am able to walk myself through instead of allowing the ripple effect of drama or anxiety get the best of me , I have become stronger , I am working towards being the woman I want to be and not allowing others to bring me down.

In the beginning I was not sure if this would help me , because to be honest I have deep roots and those roots are grounded with a lot of pain , and grief , a very troubled life ..so I really was apprehensive but I told myself I was going to do this and give it my all , after the first day I was hooked ...I realized no matter what your root is bound to it can be broke free ...Kirsty was more than willing to talk with me on any issue I was uncomfortable talking about in class ..poor thing I probably drove her crazy = Grins = Being honest she has more patients than any therapist I have had ..and I have had a few .

I enjoyed most about the class was the way the class was laid out " The format " never a time that the instructor.  Also the range of people that have issue they are working on and their willingness to share " I was not alone " And that was a really great feeling . 

The journaling I LOVED it. It took me places that I had not been willing to go in some time ..I journalled in my daughters room that was off limits for the most part , she had passed away there and it was very hard to over come but with the help I did ..and now it's a mess with my Journaling stuff . I am sorry to see the class end but all things come to a end .

I did not intend this to be so long but life changing experiences can't be summed up in one paragraph . Thank you Kirsty , for your kindness and understanding of all forms of problems .

I am literally sobbing. Full on snotty nose sobbing. The happiest sobs though. I just received this email from one of my online course attendees as a testimonial of the class. You see when I launched this course I hoped it would make a difference and help people heal but I wasn't really sure we could make the difference I hoped as I knew some of the issues ran deep. So receiving this email made me cry so hard. I am so very proud of everyone in the course for digging so deep and doing their work.

Kirsty TV interviews with every day people, celebrities and experts.
Introduction
Kirsty TV is about the power of sharing stories, as an interviewer I get to hold someone’s heart in my hands as they share their most personal and vulnerable stories that are only theirs to tell. I believe when people share their stories they heal themselves and they heal others.

My hope is that you hear something universal in their story, that you connect with their raw honesty and vulnerability. Perhaps you will realize, you are not alone… I want for everyone to be at peace with who they are warts and all and to learn, grow & heal through hearing another person’s story.
