Kate: A Lockdown Love Story

You know me and a good love story - I love one, especially one with a happy ending.  And this is a lovely one!  Kate first rang me totally incredulous that only she could be dumped in Lockdown....  but boy did she use time wisely to reassess all areas of her life and what a gorgeous story it turned out to be!  Bring on the champagne! 

You can read Kate's story in her words here: 

Before I reached out to Ali, I was feeling so low. I have had therapy before and it worked but I think it's something you need on a regular basis. I had started dating after 18 months off dating as needed a reset. I started dating someone i knew from an old job (Scott) and there were a lot of issues that he had to deal with and then just as lock down began he ended it. I was devastated as he had made me feel as if we were going somewhere.

Becci: from deflated & lost to confident & armed!

 Becci and I have been friends for a couple of decades;  a friendship that can be put down and picked up without feeling that time has passed in between.  I was so happy to hear from her after a quiet period and even more delighted to be able to support and help her achieve her happiness and life goals.  Her is her story, in her words:

Adam: From Rock Bottom to King of the World

This is an incredible story of bravery by a young student suffering with depression, anxiety, anorexia and a low self esteem. He found the courage to ask for and accept help and support and in doing so turned his life around.   If you are or if you know someone suffering in silence, please guide them to someone they feel safe opening up to... and help them on the path to recovery.  Here's Adam's story in his words:

 

My top three goals upon starting the 6-month program were to try and leave the house once a day, to go to bed before midnight at least once a week and to attempt to eat three meals a day.

To help me work toward these goals Ali and I spent the majority of sessions doing one simple thing – talking!!  It is something that should never be underestimated.  It is incredible the power it holds in recovery and how just opening up and accepting your thoughts and feelings can have a great impact on your wellbeing.  One of my main...
