“Anti-depressant medication was all the doctor offered me”

Why I came to see Lynda

I set my sights on becoming a lawyer when I was a teenager because that’s what my Father did. Ever since then, I worked very hard to get where I am today. My ultimate goal was to become a partner in a law firm - something I achieved last year - and I put my personal life on hold to achieve that.

Friendships dwindled because I had no time for socialising. Relationships never flourished because men were intimidated by my professional success, or I didn’t fit their idea of a typical wife and mother. I never had a family of my own and my Father has now passed away.

When I turned 50, I found myself looking back at my life so far and I realised it had been all about work… and little else. Feelings of emptiness and sadness grew from passing moods to a deeper sense of worthlessness. Getting out of bed each day was difficult because I felt I had no purpose.

Where would I go from here? I needed someone to guide me out of the dark cloud that had enveloped me.

The Solution

As it became harder and harder to function at work, I decided to go and see my GP but antidepressant medication was all they offered me. I wondered if my feelings were coming from something beneath the surface; something bigger than a prescription could fix.

Whilst researching therapies, I came across RTT and I felt hopeful that it could help me unpack what was contributing to my depression on a deeper level. As soon as I met Lynda, I felt she was a safe person to explore my mind with.

Not only that, her experience in business meant she could help me with practical coping strategies in the professional world as well. RTT was my light in the dark and Lynda was the lighthouse keeper.

The Results

I’ve learnt to stop and celebrate everything I’ve achieved instead of always striving for more, which has given me a sense of peace

By making time to become a mentor to law students, I’ve found fulfilment and purpose outside of my professional life

My mood has lifted and I feel optimistic about a future where my aspirations include love and friendship as well as work
