I'd like to tell you about Crystal - before she signed up for the Drugs to Dreams Programme. This is a common story among many of my clients and if you can relate to it, even just parts of it, then I urge you to reach out and message me and we can discuss how I can help you change YOUR story.
Crystal is 34 years of age and is a poly-drug user, who also smokes and drinks alcohol. She has a 5-year-old daughter, who currently resides with Crystal’s parents as she is no longer able to take proper care of her at home. The world is a painful and stressful place for her, full of judgement, rejection and neglect. She feels like nobody sees her, and even if they do, they berate her for her habit, tell her its all self-inflicted and sometimes even wish death upon her. Crystal has one or two “friends” who she hangs about with, who also use and/or supply drugs. Most of the offers she is surrounded by on a daily basis are those of more drugs, more smokes, more pills, more alcohol, more ways to try and escape reality. Her usage is having a major impact on her life and she is now struggling to function on a day-to-day basis.
Crystal feels scared, anxious, depressed, stressed and alone. She feels that life really has dealt her a shitty hand that she did not deserve. She feels torn between just wanting to feel numb and escape, to wanting to feel good and in control of her life again. Crystal really wants to try to Drugs to Dreams Programme but does have some feelings of apprehension. How does it work? What if it doesn’t work? But deep down in her heart, she wants to change, she needs to change. She desperately wants to stop abusing her body, she is just afraid of how her life will look and feel like without the drugs and alcohol. She is worried that she might not be able to cope.
She says that although the drugs help to numb things, they are ruining her life. Crystals attitude is still one of hope, not yet defeated. She had her reasons for starting using but she also has very good reasons to stop. She is naturally apprehensive about the programme, curious as to how hypnotherapy works, but she is open to the possibility that it could work for her. She doesn’t really speak to anyone about her drug taking or any of her other issues and while in the beginning, she is very guarded when speaking to me, she soon views me as her safe place, where she can open up and talk freely about her life, without any fear of being judged.
Crystal wants to get clean and sober. She wants to feel able to cope with life. She wants to be happy and confident. She wants to be able to deal with all the crap from her past, so that it doesn’t hurt her anymore. She wants to get her daughter back and create a loving and happy home for her. She wants to make something of her life. She might even consider going back to college part time, while her daughter is at school.
CRYSTAL IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR THE DRUGS TO DREAMS PROGRAMME 💜
