I was born in Zimbabwe in 1973 and have been residing in The Netherlands for the past 33 years.
I suffered narcissistic and emotional abuse for a total of 12 years through a "lover" and "friends".
I knew that many things did not feel right in the relationships but didn't know what it was, I couldn't pinpoint the strange behaviour, the manipulation, making me doubt my own perception of situations, the snide remarks, the digs and put downs. When I was accused of being a narcissist myself, I decided to look into the term, the traits and the behavior. So began a gathering of information , of educating myself, of discovering that I was not crazy or strange, and that I in fact had been emotionally abused.
This totally explained my years of anxiety, sleepless nights, worry and loss of self confidence.
I am no longer a victim but a thriving survivor!
I have been practicing life coaching for 16 years, specializing in providing women, men and teenagers with the tools to break old behaviour patterns and gain more self confidence. I am now dedicated to helping survivors of narcissistic abuse to resolve the trauma and live healthy and productive lives.
