Testimonial from Ted N, USA

Ted called me 4 months ago, sincerely wanting personal transformation. Even while taking care of his family and full time business, he put his whole self into doing the work. I’m feeling really proud!!

A while back, I saw a post on Facebook referring to healing trauma by Debbie Happy Cohen . Well I’ve had a life of trauma from growing up in the foster care system, being molested by foster mothers Fathers hell even my social worker . But at 59 years old is there really another way of truly dealing with crap I’ve dealt with all these years? I’ve done the traditional therapy’s all my life , and sure they worked a little but never really had peace , and it still affected my relationships both personally and professionally. So I thought what the hell let’s reach out to her and see what she has to offer .. THANK GOD I did ! The tools she has taught me to deal with trauma were nothing I had ever been told or taught before . With in a few sessions I could see my life changing, now don’t get me wrong I had to to work at it but I wanted change , I was tired of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Today I have the tools and support to make life better and finally feel free from the bondage that held me for so long. Who would have guessed things could change after 59 years . Now I’m 60 and feel that this is a new stage of life that I can live free from my past . My only regret is I didn’t meet her years ago . If you need a change or have had to deal with a life of childhood or even adult trauma I would highly recommend her to help and guide you to a new way of living.
