This was a testimonial I received from a client after a break up of her relationship:
“I started counselling with Di as I was suffering severe depression and anxiety after having been in a toxic and abusive relationship and I was grieving the loss of someone very dear to me. At the time, I was suicidal but I did not speak to anyone about this, not even to Di. I just needed to speak to someone to help me deal with myself, to deal with life as it was so unbearably painful. I would wake up in the morning and cry for hours because I was still alive. I felt beyond broken, I felt I had shattered into a million pieces and that I would never recover. I spent a year seeing friends and family, spending quality time with each and un-beknown to them, I was saying my goodbyes as I had started my preparations to go through with ending my life. Then one day, I don’t know exactly how or why, but something changed. I suddenly saw the world through different eyes, I saw myself in a different light and I felt good about myself and about life! I had practiced using the tools and advice that Di had given me, regularly and in every aspect of my daily routine and interactions. Di had such a unique way of helping me to see things from a different perspective. She challenged me to question my thinking, to question my views and to be really honest with myself. Her advice was so much on a Buddhist level, that I ended up following the Buddhist path and practices and it has changed my life. Di had given me the tools to transform myself completely. I no longer take antidepressants. I no longer take beta blockers. I no longer wish to end my life, if anything, I wonder how on earth I could ever have felt that way? She gave me new lease of life and I have come back more confident, stronger and a much better version of myself than I could ever have imagined. All I can say is, if you are suffering with mental health or if you feel you cannot go on any longer…speak to Di. She is amazing and I don’t know how I could ever thank her enough for the change she has made to my life”.
