It was fantastic. It was exactly what I needed to help me perform and grow in my job. The most helpful thing was having a safe, non-judgmental space to unload a week’s worth of the negative thoughts which would impact on my work, on me, and on my personal life. Dorothy would help me ‘see them’, sort through them, understand and learn from them, and eventually come to laugh at them.
Dorothy once said to me: ‘I believe anyone can do anything, with the right support’. That has really stuck with me, and along with the rest of the work we did together, it taught me that I really can do anything. I take risks more now and have learned that I am braver than I once thought. I am much better at dealing with mistakes than I thought I was, and can push away my fear of other people’s judgment or disapproval.
The biggest outcome was that right at the end of my fifteen months of working with Dorothy, I was promoted to manager! I honestly do not think that it could have happened without Dorothy’s support. It has had a huge impact on my career and personal life.
