How Freya helped Jack build better relationships and start an award-winning business

Before working with Freya…

There was a heaviness and emotional tiredness that seeped into every aspect of my life. Professionally, friendships, and particularly romantic relationships. I experienced a lot of pressure on a day-to-day level, within myself, from carrying a lot of emotional trauma and pain that was stored in the body. I used to mask a lot of the pain with social fronts, playing a character and self-medication (alcohol) to mask it and numb it. The wider impact of not dealing with that is being reactionary as you move through life instead of having the privilege of being an observer. It’s not about being in control, but being at peace with yourself emotionally and being able to manage. If I hadn’t worked with Freya, I wouldn’t have been able to have the relationship I have with my daughter or my ex-partner who I successfully co-parent with, or the business – to be able to support the team and have the strength to set it up from the ground up. The long-term effects would be the possibilities of the business failing or not getting set up, the family failing, emotional distance from my daughter. It could have been catastrophic – not being emotionally mature enough to navigate a co-parenting family. The possible outcomes don’t bear thinking about.

Here’s what else I tried...

CBT, counselling, dynamic relationship therapy, EMDR. For me I had to go on that journey prior to the work with Freya, but at the same time one two-hour session with Freya was weightier and more transformative and profound than the last 10 years’ worth of less interactive therapy. 

I was having a conversation with someone about some difficulties I was having with the intimate relationship I was in, and they made a strong recommendation for Freya. After years of therapy and self-medicating and trying to self heal I got to a point where I thought “okay let’s do this”.
I was open to it and reached out and we spoke on the phone.

How Freya helped...

Positive effects have been quite f***** major. It was a transformational feeling. The lightness afterwards was a kind of euphoric relief of not carrying all that weight. Yes, your past is always with you but the physical tension I had been feeling in my solar plexus was completely lightened. It was like a wound was healing. A mixture of relief, lightness, physical relief, feeling different, lighter, brighter, and that feeling filters into everything. The effects of that filtered right through to every aspect of my life – day to day, energy levels, professional life, the quality of my relationships, my level of empathy. At the time I was working with Freya I had a whole host of challenging family and personal events happening and I was planning a business, it was a crazy time. If I hadn’t have worked with Freya there was no way I’d have been able to deal with that in a productive way.

If I hadn’t worked with Freya…​

I would still be playing the victim. I wouldn’t have the emotional maturity to realise that we are our own reality and that a lot of what manifests literally comes from yourself. I think a lot of people get trapped in that kind of wanting to be a victim because they’re hurt and they have nothing to soothe it.

What it’s like working with Freya...

Freya offers a much more dynamic experience in comparison to a lot of other professionals. Mainly I think it’s because she has an extensive repertoire and understanding of a lot of different styles and practices so it felt a lot more interactive and confident.
A lot of the time my frustration is with therapeutic situations where you just go through the motions.

To embark on the journey of healing one’s self you have to be open to going there.

A lot of the time my frustration is with therapeutic situations where you just go through the motions. It’s like other professionals are too scared to have the confidence to interact with the client’s issue – they don’t want to say anything in case the client reacts. So knowing there’s somebody out there who is confident and competent, whose style works well for me, is very reassuring.

Like any decent artist, performer, musician, writing a song and performing it – you have to decide to serve yourself up on a platter, let people hear the heartbreak in your voice. It’s a similar thing when you decide you’re ready to heal. I absolutely recommend working with Freya if you are ready for that, for change.
