Hear From People I've Helped
Being only 9 years old when my father passed my whole life was turned upside down. Not only did I struggle with my fathers death but I also had to face the reality of my non-existent relationship between my birth mother and me. I struggled with every single day, it became difficult to just wake up in the morning and find a purpose to stay on the right track. I had depression, anxiety, had a lack of love and trust for myself and others and was just simply lost in life. As I went through my teenage years I needed stability and structure, but with the bad environment at home I wasn't able to properly grow up and understand the situations I was put in.I had never had a counsellor, nor was it even an option in my area, I spent my days feeling helpless and slowly began to give up. When I met Angelina, she immediately stood out to me as thoughtful, kind, caring, empathetic and rational. Angelina immediately understood the circumstances I was in and also immediately took action. She made sure I was comfortable but she also was engaging and challenging me, which brought out emotional but impactful outcomes. She worked closely with me walking me step by step to help me understand the biggest hurdle in my life, relationships. I had always struggled to have a normal relationship with my mother. Angelina would talk with us both and us individually and she helped me understand things from my mothers perspective and also vice versa. We now have a better relationship because of the patience and help that Angelina had for us. Angelina made me realise that I am the beholder of my own story, and I am such a strong and independent woman today because of the sessions I had with her. Her patience and ability to understand, her empathetic nature just made it so easy to express how I felt knowing there would be no judgement. I can whole heartily say that I am much happier today because of Angelina and I am deeply grateful to Angelina for her advice and continuing support. Thank you Angelina for being there, I couldn't have done it without your help.
Trust is a requirement when allowing yourself to be vulnerable to someone. You need that person to have the ability to provide a sense of safety, acceptance and a desire for non-judgemental understanding. These are but some of the many attributes that Angie hones so well. Her patience and capability to look past the surface level of a person and see the potential in someone, even when they can’t see it for themselves (as cliché as that may sound) is undoubtedly the talent that invites people to be so open with her and in turn allowed her to pull me through potentially some of the darkest times I have experienced and even now, however many years later I still think back to the advice and guidance she provided me with so much thanks.
Anji has helped me navigate through my problemetic late teenage years and my relationship with my parents. In my first session, she was able to help me understand why I behaved a certain way and outlined a plan for doing discipline with myself to fix my relationship with my parents. It was so simple and straight forward that I came back for many more sessions until I felt stable. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for personal counselling.
How do I even begin to describe Angelina? During a time where I felt very alone and distant from my family, Angelina showed me kindness, love, and compassion. I must admit I wasn’t the easiest person to like at the time, but not once did she ever make me feel any less than anyone; she never judged my actions even though some were quite big; instead, she helped me to overcome those problems, and she taught me how to forgive myself. When Angelina helped me, she was not working professionally in the field, but I can’t stress enough how professional she felt in the most loving form. I truly felt her love towards me, and her want to see me doing better. She would often house me and was disposed to financially aiding me too at the time. It’s really beautiful and touching when someone goes above and beyond to show you they are there for you. Angelina made me feel safe when I felt lost and scared, and she made me feel appreciated and strong. At the time, I was working three jobs to afford my rent and studying full time, I was on the verge of a mental breakdown, and I felt like I would have to drop out of university. However, she reminded me of my worth, power, intelligence and inner beauty and told me to stay strong and have faith. It may have taken me longer than usual to finish my degree, but I completed it. As I said, if it weren’t for Angelina reminding me of what I was and am capable of doing, I would have dropped out, and that would have made my situation a lot worse; completing university has always been a dream of mine. In short, Angelina helped me to achieve my dream, and today I am in a much better place thanks to her help. I still speak to Angelina today, and I know she will always help me if I need it and care about me, always. There is no price that I can put on the massive role she played in my life, and I sincerely hope that I can repay her for what she has done for me one day.
