When I first met Diane I felt emotionally numb, worthless, had very low self esteem and didn’t know what to do to change anything I was feeling. I’d suffered with depressive periods on and off for a number of years and been prescribed anti depressant and anxiety drugs. When I hit another crisis point I didn’t want to turn back medication.

During our first meeting Diane listened while I cried a lot talking through events in my life I could not move on from; losing my mum when I my daughter was very young, break down of relationships, always doing my best to please everyone in my life except for me. Like lots of people I’d carried on with a brave face, blaming myself for anything that went wrong and feeling a failure.

Diane’s guidance has helped me so much, I am really grateful for all her advice. A few weeks ago I would not have believed how making a few changes in the way I think could transform how I feel about myself and my future. I feel like I’ve been set free, a much stronger person and understand how to make my life what I want it to be for the first time ever, thanks to Diane!
