I really struggled following the death of my younger brother. It reached a point where I thought I need to speak to someone about this. I remembered 6 months earlier reading an article in The Sunday Times magazine about life coaches and wondered if there were any in Derry. I goggled life coaches in Derry and found 3. I took a look at their pages and was drawn to Helen’s and more especially when I spoke with her. She took me through what she offered, coaching not counselling and give me time to consider if I felt this would help me.
My time spent with Helen was all about the positives, good times and memories with Ryan. She taught me to “tap” which is a really calming and reassuring technique. I was a 45 year old woman with a family and from the outside everything looked good. Helen was non judgemental and put a positive spin on things during our meetings and these included tears but also laughter. The benefit to me was positive thinking and this allowed me to deal with the loss rather than bottling things up.
On a personal level Helen is a lady and I am truly grateful that I choose her.
