Imagine crawling through a very long and dark tunnel with no end in sight. This is how I was feeling before I came across iCan_Always. At first, I was a bit sceptical as I had been through multiple counselling sessions which all seemed similar but not as effective at equipping me with the tools that I needed to cope with different issues I was dealing with at the time.
I signed up to 7-week programme which helped equip me with the tools that have now become a part of my everyday life. There are so many things that we take for granted but are so important in defining our lives. Ruvimbo proved to be so patient and flexible in the way she helped me understands my weaknesses and helped develop coping mechanisms in a very unique but effective way.
When I first spoke to Ruvimbo, I just believed that I was suffering from depression. It is not until we began our sessions when I realised that there are so many factors at play. What impressed me the most is that the workbooks I received managed to provoke me to think differently and opened me up to a new way of looking at myself. I began to feel more confident in myself, confident in building and maintaining relationships and I also discovered many reasons to celebrate and reward my successes.
If you are going through a difficult season of your life, you are open minded and you are willing to put in the work to get through that situation, then there is no one better out there to walk that journey with than Ruvimbo.
I wish you all the best in your journey.
Thank you so much for your help and advice throughout the programme. I have grown week by week, by fighting battles that I couldn’t before, such as facing my fear of speaking, and opening up to certain things that I found hard to deeply think about or speak about. From this experience, I have been able to find a new way of doing things and going about certain situations with my loved ones, understanding things from a different perspective. Also, I have been able to be strict with myself and my mind, by thinking of good thoughts from situations that I’d usually get disturbed by, affirmations to focus on as well as helped me progress further to breaking chains. All in all, I have had the opportunity to find myself again, and be with my thoughts properly through journaling and having some more me time, rewinding from my day to day life. Thank you once again for helping me through this journey, as I feel like I’m growing to become a better and happier person.
