“The most influential tools in my life”
I came to Bev to find myself, to find my purpose, to find the meaning of life, and most of all to learn how to love myself again. I was dealing with two main concerns: depression and loss of self. I had suffered from severe depression for a year and a half. I attended counselling appointments every two weeks, which only seemed to get me so far. I just couldn’t figure out why I hated myself so so much. I couldn’t understand why at 27 I still had no idea who I was, why I was so internally lost in life.
Firstly, with meditation, I noticed an instant sense of calm, peace, and positivity. Within no time I noticed myself caring about me again: what I said, what I did, who I hung out with, what I ate, what I drank. I was harboring a lot of expectations, judgments, anger, resentment, and just plain hurt. As we went through the different sessions, and I completed my assignments I started to come to peace with relationships, how they were without trying to control them. Many of my relationships are stronger now, most of all the one with myself. I learned how to: Set healthy boundaries and not have people walk all over me. How to console myself when I’m having a rough time. How important it is to make time for myself. I now have an overall understanding of who I am and what I need to be happy.
I liked Bev’s positivity, no matter how negatively I looked at a situation, she encouraged me to look at it in a way that was not bad or good but what I was to learn. I also respected Bev’s story; that she came from her own place of self-healing and self-love, that took her time and that she was still learning and growing every day. It made connecting so easy and real.
Bev was well prepared, planned and truly understood the steps of healing and self-love. I was given some of the most influential tools that I could ever carry in my life, but they didn’t come easily or without a hell of a lot of work. Bev is kind, gentle and has a very influential positive power about her.
I don’t know where I would be without finding Bev. Thank you for finally allowing me to fall in love with myself after all these years of disconnect.
