Transformational Client Success Story
Welcome to our Transformational Client Success Story where I personally interview one of our very successful clients, Renate. Renate was born in Austria. Her parents were very hard working, and produced 6 beautiful children: 3 girls and 3 boys. All very clever, who were taught manners, high principles, and always to respect one’s elders. Renate is the middle child, and had all the jobs of looking after the kids and anything they needed she would do, especially if they were teased for being European etc. She was excellent in every sport, singing, dancing, acting and now that she is widowed is returning to her hobbies and more.
Renate lives in Queensland after moving there from South Australia with Eddie (her husband). They lived in Darwin after moving there the day after their wedding, and went through cyclone Tracey. She had their beautiful daughter, Belinda, after the cyclone. Belinda is a beautiful, thoughtful, hard working, and a very successful business woman. The family moved back to South Australia and then had their wonderful son, James. Unfortunately, James passed away at 28 years young from Wilson’s disease. Nine weeks ago, Renate lost her beautiful brother, Robert, which was also a great loss.
You have had a huge transformation recently, please tell us about it Renate.
I have had a very sad, traumatic, yet happy and successful life. I needed help which needed attention for a long while but thought I could do it on my own. I had PTSD, and have seen things I wish and hope nobody sees or goes through. However, I transformed into a happy positive busy human being. I have accepted so many things, and with NLP have been shown tools to cope.
What were the biggest challenges you needed to overcome to get to where you are now?
Accepting my husband’s passing, and putting James our son to rest as I have suffered greatly with PTSD. Nothing has helped before, and this has. I sleep, eat and enjoy everything in life, even chores I could not do before. Grieving affects you all over, but it should not take over one’s life. Yes, you will not forget. There is nothing wrong in grieving, but if it consumes your life, get help. I now do feel whole. I also accept if someone comments on something negative, I do not crumble and go down for days. It’s their view, and as I feel positive it’s water off a duck’s back.
To what extent has working with Qt helped you to overcome recent losses, and to transform your confidence, behaviour and life?
It’s all about being positive. I was negative, and used words that made me negative: can’t, won’t work, rotten day… just negativity. I have been with Eddie for 54 years, and he passed away 1 year ago. Then my brother passed 2 months ago. While this was sad, I was having treatment to manage my grieving. I’m back to living, accepting death, laughing again and enjoying life. I am being positive and thinking differently on negative situations. Well as everyone who has lost a loved one knows how hard it can be. I didn’t want to get out of bed, and wanted to do nothing. Now I love awakening, say it’s a beautiful day and I am going to enjoy it.
How would you sum up your transformation?
I didn’t think I could live again and start anew at 70. It was not easy as grieving is hard no matter what. I also feel the older one is the harder it gets. It doesn’t need to be with NLP. As explained, the tools I’ve been taught help immensely. To anyone who reads this, I am not getting paid for my honest comments. I have only met Vesna through the programme. I was able to successfully do the programme in Queensland from Melbourne. Lastly, as I have had so many ups and downs, I would never ever suggest a programme that doesn’t work. I have spoken to folk that have done the programme and are better for it. If you follow the programme, you will succeed.
I thought my transformation was very interesting, and it definitely worked for me. The best out of this is that if I have any problems I can ring at anytime if need be. That is so re-assuring to say the least. Finally, I am grateful for Vesna, for her patience and the caring nature that comes naturally.
How you too can more comfortably deal with grief and loss.
