After I lost my daughter and her partner in the Boxing Day Tsunami I was absolutely devastated. Two weeks without knowing whether she was alive or dead led to PTSD as well as depression. As a doctor I sought medical attention. A psychiatrist prescribed sleeping tablets and an antidepressant. Psychologists treated me with light therapy amongst other things. There was minimal benefit. What helped me most was visiting a medium who proved to me that my daughter’s soul was still with me and that there certainly is life after death. I had a spiritual awakening. For me this was far more beneficial than any of the other treatments and why I consider having a reading with a good medium an excellent form of bereavement/grief counselling. I am blessed that I have developed my mediumship and am able help others who are grieving.
