Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum. I used to be repeatedly beaten by my husband and I had serious personal and financial problems. I went to see many psychologists, but nothing seemed to work. They all did the same thing - I felt like that was my temporary hiding place, but at the end of the session I knew I had to get back to reality. It didn't work at all - the advice I was given was to leave my husband, but they didn't dare advise me about financial matters because they weren't proficient in that area (yeah right). Whatever, I talked to my sister about it and she offered me to move in with her, but she knew I needed a more permanent solution so she recommended me to write to her e-coach. That is a life coach who works mainly online. To tell you the truth, writing about my problems and myself was a lot easier than talking about it. Also, it is just 20 pounds per week for unlimited sessions! It's been two years since I started exchanging mail with Angela from elifecoaching.co.cc and I should tell you that she gave me the strength to stabilise myself financially and then divorce my husband! Honestly, there is no need to spend thousands on pointless therapy - therapists focus on dealing with our past problems and do little for the current, whilst coaches work for our future. I hope there are many more people who stop wasting their money and invest in their future! Thanks a lot, Angela!

Hi Angela,

Welcome to healing well. We offer ecouch too. And moodgym. Which I believe is similar. It seems to work well for people who can't get into counseling. I am glad that it worked for you.

Are you still with your husband? I see you said that you were constantly beaten by him. That is so sad. I hope that you are no longer with him. My first husband use to beat me, we were drinking at the time. Once he quit drinking, the beatings stopped. I was fortunate there.

You can talk about pretty much anything on the forum. I hope that it helps you. There is something about the anonominity of this place that really helps. The members are very kind and compassionate. I hope that you stay with us.

Take care of you. That is most important. I hope that you can work out your financial problems. If you share a little more about yourself, hopefully we can help you with support.

Have a wonderful day,

Hugs, Karen

I have to agree with you here, I feel that most psychologists and therapists aren't good anyway, there could be good ones out there but they are too hard to find, and they always put you on meds I hate meds they play with your mind sometimes. The thing that helped me the most is this place heallingwell. secondly support of my close relatives and even my my last boss he was very understanding, when he noticed I was under-performing because of depression among other things, he cut-off my pay-check while still giving me tasks to do to prove myself, promising me my pay-check back if I am successfull.
