Redundancy in COVID19

Where can you find 'A Slice of Happiness'?

From 'Rock Bottom' to 'Falling Back In Love With Life'
Testimonial for Ian struggled with behavioural issues from as far back as he can remember, with severe anxiety and issues around emotion control. This led to many behaviours including fighting, binge eating and sudden weight loss and then into alcohol and cocaine abuse. His view of himself as a damaged, potentially mentally unstable person led to many breakdowns and job losses. Through A Slice of Happiness and The Three Principles he has found an awareness of his thoughts and corresponding emotions and how they shape his personal reality.  Since January 2021 he has been a Peer Mentor for A Slice of Happiness to help support beneficiaries struggling with the same challenges he used to have.

My name is Sally and I'm not an alcoholic
Guest Speaker for Sally had an extreme addiction to alcohol.  By 2014 it had taken everything from her and was destroying her life.  She’d lost her job as a scientist, her friends, family, self respect and had gained a criminal record for drink driving. She was near to death as her organs were failing and was developing Psychosis.  She had been to nine 12 step rehab facilities, which hadn’t worked then came across the Three Principles in 2015 and hasn’t touched a drop of alcohol since. She now says ‘My name is Sally and I’m not an alcoholic’

Goodbye Depression and Anxiety
Testimonial for Gillian struggled with depression and anxiety on and off for 20 years.  She had struggled with relationships and never felt good enough which resulted in a strange relationship with alcohol.  Her symptoms from chronic fatigue syndrome added to the internal pain she was suffering.  She had heard about the Three Principles mid 2020 so was excited to join the SPAs in 2021 - her life has transformed and she’s excited to now be a Peer Mentor for A Slice of Happiness.

From 'suicidal thoughts' to feeling 'amazing and unstoppable'
Testimonial for Anthony discovered the Three Principles in early 2020 when a third redundancy within a 2 year period led to suicidal thoughts and a 90 minute conversation with the Samaritans. Anthony joined the A Slice of Happiness SPA three weeks before we entered our first lockdown feeling depressed, had lost his confidence and wasn’t hopeful for the future. He has now found a job which he loves and feels amazing and unstoppable.

Redundancy in COVID19
Testimonial for ‘Anonymous’ joined our SPAs in January 2021 after she had been signposted by Watford Job Centre.  She had been made redundant during COVID19 and was in a bad place, feeling hopeless and ashamed.  She had been in an abusive marriage and suffered most of her life with depression, anxiety attacks and sleepless nights. She has now seen that she isn’t broken, able to love herself, energised and looking forward to living life.

Homelessness behind closed doors
Testimonial for ‘Anonymous’ had mental health difficulties for much of her life and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She was on medication and under the Community Mental Health Team. Since doing the Slice of Happiness course she has become more positive about life, able to appreciate beauty in nature, less anxious, has come off her medication, is no longer under the mental health team and her bipolar is in remission. She had a number of worrying physical health concerns, but these have disappeared. Her three children have undergone a radical change in their overall wellbeing resulting in a significant change in their behaviour, happiness, physical and mental health and academic attainment.
