When I first met Di, following a traumatic experience, I was in a bad place; I was unable to function in normal daily life, not eating or sleeping or generally taking care of myself. I could not make sense of the thoughts and feelings I was having and I had temporarily checked out of life. After the first session I felt a 1000lbs had been physically lifted from me and it was the beginning of my return to life......a better life. Di helped me to work through my feelings, thoughts and experiences and helped me to understand them, acknowledge them and work out a constructive way forward. Having someone to explore very difficult emotions with (minus any judgement, bias or agenda) enabled me to take back control of my life and identify what I really wanted and what was most important to me. I feel more empowered now than I ever have before. Not only have I made it through a very difficult time in my life, I now feel equipped to live the life that I always wanted/thought I could have - but never did. The constructive nature of my sessions with Di have provided me with tangible, actionable strategies to live by and I will be forever grateful for the help she gave me.
