Andrea and Darren M. NSW, Australia
Darren and I joined the Achieve Today because we both felt that we were searching for meaning in our lives. Our lives changed forever in 2007 when our eldest son, Ben aged 15, was killed in a motor vehicle accident. Since Ben was killed, I have struggled with depression, PTSD and anxiety. I got to a point where I could no longer work and felt that I was worthless. I felt that I did not deserve to feel joy in my life; I was just putting one foot in front of the other to survive.
I came across Achieve Today and decided that it was exactly what I needed to change the direction of my life. Working with Achieve Today each week has been amazing. They have helped me to discover the good and the positives that have come out of Ben’s death. I am at a stage now where I feel truly grateful for my life and I am finding joy, where I never expected to find joy ever again. I have realized that it is only my negative beliefs and negative self-talk which has been holding me back. Working with Achieve I feel I am growing and developing each week and I am very grateful for having such an amazing coach who has impacted my life so profoundly.
This year I have commenced University at the age of 51! Going to Uni was never an opportunity I thought I could participate in. However, after coaching from Achieve Today, I have realized that I can achieve what I want to achieve in my life and I no longer need to be a victim of life.
I am very thankful to the people at Achieve Today for believing in me and for giving me the tools to transform my life. Having someone who believes in me, and who challenges me, in a gentle way to change my thinking has had a huge impact on not only my life, but the lives of my husband, Darren and our two teenage sons. I am not the same person I was when I started with Achieve Today, I feel like I am peeling back layers of grief, loss and immense sadness and revealing instead, gratitude, love, life, joy and hope.
Thank you Achieve Today with all my heart. You are a blessing to the world.
