Holistic Life Coach , Energy Healer
I was diagnosed with clinical depression and an anxiety disorder, and with that diagnosis came a set of pills I’d have to shut my eyes and swallow multiple times every day. While the medicine kept the monster in me at bay, another factor into my treatment had to come in, something a lot more ambiguous than hormone-controlling drugs - therapy. I was recommended to many clinical psychologists who mainly used CBT to help me. Unfortunately, I did not get better, both because of the method being used as well as the discomfort I felt. I tried therapy with the help of professional doctors multiple times and to no avail; my mental health was still deteriorating in a continuous downward spiral. I was starting to feel that my money, time, and energy were being wasted.
I gave up.
Then, a friend of mine told me to try working with a life coach instead. I attempted two life coaches, but like the CBT, their strategies did not help me much either. Suddenly, the wonderful Rola Sheikh came into my life, and I decided to give life coaching one last chance, despite my reluctance and subconscious insistence that this wouldn’t help either.
When Ms. Sheikh told me about her methods of holistic life coaching and energy healing, I honestly thought it was utter nonsense. However, to my surprise, I actually felt a difference during the first session. As I am a person who functions on logic, Ms. Sheikh spent a good amount of our first session making me comfortable and convinced in trying this new method. I learned so much during our coaching sessions, including the power we have within us and the energy around us.
One of the key factors that made me feel very comfortable with Ms. Rola was her purity in wanting to help people. She is not money driven and rather focused on her client getting better; the progression she notices is very rewarding. Never before have I had one of my therapists text/call me after the session asking about how I felt. Ms. Sheikh would genuinely care and check on me. With more and more sessions, she gained my trust, and I was able to open up like I hadn’t before with the other therapists and life coaches. Her no-nonsense method proved to be effective with me as I needed that push to work on myself.
Also, I have always had doubts about the world around us and if God was a good being. Ms. Sheikh, with my approval, helped me heal and helped me make peace with God and what has been given to me. This has given me so much peace of mind and heart.
I still am a huge pessimist and a negative thinker, but before meeting Ms. Sheikh, never before in my life did I think more ‘positively’ than I do now. Small progress is still progress nonetheless. Family, friends, and my doctors all saw changes in me ever since I started my sessions with Ms. Sheikh. The three years in which I went to therapy could not amount to the change I experienced with the help of Ms. Sheikh. She is truly an exceptional life coach who I believe can make me go the distance.
I am truly blessed to have finally been able to start healing after three years of ongoing mental pain.
