My experience with Renata changed my life. When we met, I was utterly depressed, suffered from panic attacks and had endometriosis. My life was in pieces! Working with her, gradually the panic attacks seized and I started to put the pieces of the puzzle together, developing more understanding and tolerance towards myself and, eventually, stopping the blame. I accused myself so much! I was totally judgemental and found it very difficult to change. I was also full of guilt- I’d had an abortion 20 years before -, to the point that I believe it to have caused my endometriosis. And, in time, I was totally free from it! My gynaecologist couldn’t believe what he saw when I went for my check-up! Clearly, some sessions were very hard for me – and probably for Renata too - especially when I had to look deeply inside myself and re-experience my childhood traumas. But I always felt total support and encouragement from Renata, which helped me go on and never give up. Having learnt to trust myself and even to love myself I can say that my depression has gone and my life is transformed.
