It's a Wednesday, in the middle of a global pandemic. The company I work for is losing money by the hour. I'm stressed and worried for myself and my family. 4 months ago I would have dealt with that pressure by falling face first in a pint of Ben and Jerry's or by knocking back wine to cope.
But 4 months ago I met Esther, so tonight, in the middle of a global pandemic, I made myself a nourishing smoothie, told my husband and kids I needed some me time, and took myself off for an hour long walk. I feel calm, hopeful and healthy.
When Esther took me on as a client, I felt broken physically and mentally. I was exhausted, gaining weight by the second and terrified that this was just the way it was going to be now as a 44 year old menopausal woman.
She kept things simple for me in the beginning. Never chastising if I messed up a day here or there. Always just pointing me back on the right course and somehow always asking me the right questions. Questions I didn't always want to face! Questions like, "Why don't I think I deserve to be happy?", "Why do I feel like I cannot prioritize my health?"
After a couple of months of Esther's nutritional guidance and her care and concern for me as a woman, something very profound happened. I discovered that looking after myself physically was having a dramatic impact on me mentally. I can honestly say hand on my heart, that 4 months of working with Esther was more impactful than years of therapy. I no longer feel broken. I feel opened, physically lighter and mentally stronger.
To anyone considering becoming one of Esther's clients all I can say is, invest in yourself! You deserve it! You are worth it, and you will not regret it!
