When I first met Jeremy I had been ill for approximately 14 years. I had always wanted to get to the root of the issue and had refused drug treatments entirely. I had, however, had extensive surgery and had been left with some debilitating issues which had, slowly but surely, taken over my life and left me anxious, depressed and virtually housebound. I had lost any confidence that I previously had, having hardly left the house for approximately 10 years. I had sought and found ways to keep myself physically healthy in terms of avoiding the return of the progressive disease, but the situation had left me constantly tired and lacking in energy, focus and motivation. The addition of family problems around me had left me feeling powerless to change. I did not believe I had a future and felt strongly that I had wasted my life. It was hard to understand why I felt so stuck in what was an intolerable situation. I consider myself reasonably intelligent and resourceful, but I was unable to see a way out. I met Jeremy in person and had a consultation with him. It was an act of desperation. I didn’t think it would make any difference but I had nothing to lose. At that point in my life I did not want to go on. I’m not sure how he did it, there was no drastic lifestyle change involved, but over the following few months I started to believe that there was hope. Jeremy was the wisdom, the catalyst and the guide. He managed to subtly change the language that I used about myself and my life and the way I saw myself changed slowly until I started to believe in myself again. Always positive and endlessly patient, Jeremy has a special quality of understanding and getting to the heart of the matter, however painful that may be at the time. I can’t quite find the words to express how grateful I am and how much better I feel. I have worked hard to get here, very hard, but without Jeremy’s direction, insightful observations and endless optimism, with just the right level of nagging, I do not think I would have been able to change. It is not over, I have work to do, but I am going forward and that’s all I could have asked for.
