How Freya helped Helen find her inner strength to find new love and build a successful business
Before working with Freya…
I was going through a very challenging time in my 14-year relationship. I was really confused. We were trying to fix things, we had tried couples counselling and it didn’t work for us.
I felt desperate.
I knew there were changes happening in me because things I used to tolerate had become intolerable. I was desperate to figure out what was happening and find a way forward. My daughter saw me cry a lot and that was really hard.
The worst thing was being in a relationship where I felt completely unfulfilled. I never felt completely happy. I felt – and I knew – there was more to life than what I was living. I didn’t feel I was living life at its fullest, I wasn’t satisfied with what I was getting, who I was being. I knew that I could give more but I felt unable to. I had put myself in the back seat, we didn’t feel like equals, I felt I was more a part of my ex-husband’s show.
I’m not sure what would have happened if I hadn’t gone to see Freya. Maybe I’d still be going around in circles. More likely, I would have come to the same conclusion (that I needed to do my own thing) but it would have taken a lot longer. I don’t even want to think about it.
Here’s what else I tried...
How Freya helped...
The main result for me is I have recovered my inner strength. I was always a strong person but, when you’re in a long term relationship from a young age, over time I lost that and became so reliant on my relationship that I feel I got lazy and stayed in my comfort zone. Now I feel like I’m back to myself – a strong woman – not following someone else’s dream anymore. Now, I’m back to following my own dreams and being in the place I want to be.
Having Tropical Sushi is one of the best outcomes. After 15 years running a business with my ex-husband, I stepped out of my comfort zone and set up my own business – and it’s doing great.
I’m also now in a relationship with someone who is a true equal. He brings out the best in me, and I’ve learnt that I don’t need to apologise or follow in relationships any more. It’s okay for me to express myself. I know whatever the argument, we can fix it. The greatest benefit is being surrounded by incredible people in my personal and work life. Providing stability and a lovely home environment for my daughter. Feeling good. Doing good business!
