Healed from physical abuse
“When I came to Bill and Wilma Watson, Directors of Gold Coast Healing Rooms, I was contemplating suicide. The pain and fatigue of M. E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis – a post viral illness) were taking their toll. This was the price I was paying for a lifetime of physical and emotional abuse.
Healed from the pain of divorce
“I hear that you can help those who have been traumatised?” I asked. Without taking a breather I continued, “I have been divorced twice and I can’t seem to put the hurt behind me and move on.”
Healed of back pain
I was wakeboarding and determined to stand up at my first attempt. As the boat began to pull me through the water, suddenly something in my lower back went; I felt it go and knew it wasn’t good.
“When my father told me that he didn’t love me, it is like the final blow that confirmed my feelings of rejection. It was not until I was older that I understood why my father hated me so. As well as having difficulty overcoming his guilt, he found that my strong will and rebellious personality riled him. No one, not even his wife, could question his authority.
No longer stressed
“I’m tired of feeling tired. I’m tired of the stress of juggling money, marriage, parenting, housework, and a career all at the same time. The more I stress, the worse I feel. In fact I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired! Sorry for being so negative, but I’m just telling you how I feel,” I explained.
Overcome alcohol and drug addiction
“I was thirteen years of age when my parents were divorced and I witnessed my only sister die in a car accident. The combination of these two events led me into years of escapism through sex, alcohol and drugs.
I overcame depression
I was suffering from severe depression following years of sexual and physical abuse. Having had suicidal thoughts I was desperate to find relief from the pain, fear and mental torment that plagued me.
Set free from fear and anxiety
“I was very nervous about attending the Gold Coast Healing Rooms, but was soon made to feel at ease by the beautiful, loving people there.
I explained to them that I didn’t know why I was anxious as I had no obvious reason to feel anxious at this point in my life. However due to the anxiety, I have felt compelled to avoid attending social events.
Set free from pornography addiction
“When I was growing up I would hide under my parent’s bed to escape from their fighting. Under my dad’s side I found pornographic magazines. When I looked at the magazines I found that I could escape the harshness of reality.
As I grew older I bought my own magazines, downloaded screen savers onto my computer and spent hours viewing pornographic sites.
