A lot went on behind closed doors. No details needed. It was abusive.
The Jehovah's Witnesses kept it silenced. I was 16 years old when I had enough courage to escape the abuse and the Jehovah's Witnesses. I ran away. My family continue to shun me all these years later. I would say my journey to recovery had begun.
Journey to freedom... When all looked dire, at my lowest point, homeless, alone and scared at 16, a good soul took me to a place of safety. I believe I owe him my life.
At 22 years old, I met a dad of two little girls; I remember being thrilled with "normal family life" because he had an electric drill and could put shelves up! We were married for 14 years and had two gorgeous daughters.
The Wake-Up Call… with a new baby and a four-year-old, a blow came in the form of cancer. I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Disease. For the next two years, I was a young mum and wife facing death, painful treatments, chemotherapy, sickness, weakness and fear.
I remember the day I stared in the mirror at University College Hospital, London. I was undergoing intensive high dose chemotherapy. I was about to have a total stem cell transplant. I was swollen from steroids, racked in pain and weakness. I had no hair, no eyebrows and swollen red eyes. I felt unrecognisable.
Yet at that lowest moment, when there was no cover-up, I saw the strength, the will, the life force behind my eyes. It was at that moment that I told myself I cannot die now. I hadn't got happy with myself yet!
Staring into my eyes in the mirror, something within called me forward. This was the first time I felt an inner self. Physically I was at my lowest, but my inner self was at it's strongest.
That was my deciding point, to get through this illness and TRULY get well and happy. I had done the repair work from my past. I had to heal.
This decision led to my recovery from cancer and the Jehovah Witness Cult's old programming.
This spurred my desire to help ex-JWs, like you to do the same. So while I was recovering, I classically trained in counselling and Jungian psychology to fulfil my mission to help people fully recover their lives from the JW.org. I knew I would use these recovery tools to help others to create happy, healthy, loving lives, and that is precisely how I have been helping ex-JWs, like you, achieve for nearly 20 years.
I'd love to help you fully recover too.
It's not enough to survive after the JW.Org. Let's get you thriving.
That's why I'm offering you a taster counseling session for just £37 / USD 50 so you can finally start to recover.
