Below is a testimonial from a case where Daniela was able to help a mother and her child to ovecome a stressful time, this may give you an idea of how Daniela may be able to help you realise a happy and positive outcome:
I am 11.
I can tell you that Daniela is :-
Good at listening
She helped me figure stuff out. My life is lots happier now. I still get mad about stuff, but I can explain how I feel, and I do the breathing patterns that Daniela taught me too. AB
Ok – here goes Dan, it was quite emotional to write. And do let me know if you’d like it to be less open, and more “professional” – I’m very happy to tweak.
My son was very angry. And sad. In equal measure. We’d been battling with ferocious outbursts and irrational behaviour for some time. As parents, we felt way out of our depth in terms of understanding the cause, never mind knowing how best to handle, or even resolve the situation.
The crunch day came when my then 9 year old son told me that he’d rather be in heaven.
I called Daniela and stumbled my way through what must have sounded like the ramblings of a mad woman – it was impossible not to be emotional. Daniela guided me through the discussion in a kind but structured fashion, allowing her to make some sense of my debrief.
My son hid initially during the first visit, refusing to engage. Daniela coxed him into chatting, and that is where the “healing” process (as I choose to think of it) began. Dan’s sessions with my son were very much their time. My husband and I digested each debrief from Daniela, and worked very hard to take on board the feedback indirectly from our son, take action, make changes, and accommodate some of (not all of) his requests.
Daniela worked wonders, and it didn’t take long in the grand scheme of things. Listening, providing coping mechanisms, laughing, sympathising, rationalising – this was all part of the process between them.
Our son, now almost 12, is in a completely different place. Much better equipped to deal with life, loves school, enjoys his friends and sport – all of which he appeared externally to do previously, but it was a very different story on the inside. We now have the harmony of both. I asked him recently what he felt had helped him so much – it is very simple in his mind, and he had only one word .. “Dan!”.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Daniela Bove; she is a very professional, talented therapist.LC
