ABOUT EMMA

Well educated. Good job. Well brought up. Living in a dream flat with her best friend.Doing her dream job. With a great circle friends.

 

You would not think she would spend 3 years in and out of a psychiatric hospital, be 33, have to move back home with her parents and lose touch with a majority of friends, isolating herself.

 

Well, this is me.

 

This is my life.

 

I am 1 in 4.

I had been working in fashion for 10 years.  After many ups and downs I was finally in a job for a high profile fashion label. l loved it.  I had an amazing boss and the best colleagues.  It was like working in a little family.

Then I got a new boss (who I could describe in many words but they would not be appropriate to write here!). She turned my world upside down as she picked apart everything I did.  I had always had low self-esteem and harshly judged myself but she just enhanced those feelings, making me feel more useless than ever.

After 6 months of trying I gave in and that was the end of me ever wanting to work in fashion (which had been my dream) .

 

This was the start of my mental health journey.

 

In reflection I had been suffering for a long long time but this experienced magnified it out of control.

 

From then I was unable to work for 4yrs going in and out of hospital, my life was on a total standstill and a life changing rollercoaster.

 

Finding Sophie again was a turning point in my recovery. We gave each other drive, ambition, motivation and inspired the start of the CBT Cafe.
