“It’s so good to be off medication and not to see psychiatrists. I’m working at the local hospital and am studying postgraduate nursing studies at university. Life is wonderful – I have many friends and am even going out with men!!! It’s the best it’s ever been. Best Wishes, Laura, Australia.”

Comments: Laura(40) was on the highest dose of psychiatric drugs for twenty-five years with the constant threat of being institutionalised. Her determination was to see me regularly. Over three years she slowly came off the drugs and there was a major breakthrough the day she was able to go a restaurant by herself for the first time since she was 15.

She recently emailed me to say that she had not taken one drug in more than two years.
