My name is Petrina Sarah Speller.
A little bit about me...
I'm 26, for the past 5 years I've been a young, single mother.
Raising my beautiful child is one of the best things that this life has ever gifted me.
Now that she is older, I feel it is essential to start truly taking care of myself and prioritising my healing.
Some of the things I have faced & felt are:
- Parental Neglect due to extreme addictions.
- Feeling very stupid during schooling.
- Feeling that my body is the only way to make money.
- Physical and sexual Abuse.
- My own drug use & inherited alcohol addiction.
- Debilitating intimate relationships.
- I have felt Suicidal and ended up in emergency wards numerous times.
I haven't known what to do.
I understand that these are cycles that many of us struggle with, and have done for generations.
It is my decision to end this cycle now!
I will provide the best future for my daughter and myself and all those around me.
What I want to feel & experience:
- Safe & Strong
- Capable & Productive
- Free of Addictions & Full of Vitality
- Able to give back on a regular basis
- Confidence, to enable me to complete trainings & work
- That I will experience healthy love and relations
- That I will be a fantastic role model for my daughter and her peers
What I want to do to make this happen:
I have been told about a healing retreat.
The programme is called 'The Hoffman Proccess.'
It is based around healing childhood traumas and forgiveness through understanding.
The process takes place over 1 week at a retreat centre in Byron Bay, NSW.
The next course is taking place in November. It is a week of deep healing & transformation.
I've been seeing the same psychologist here in Brisbane consistently for the past five years, because I need to.
I know that I need an intensive space for cathartic emotional release to really liberate myself from the past traumas and enable lasting positive changes.
Hoffman is the team for me.
Check it out here...
The course is worth $6,000.
I applied for a scholarship after a one-on-one consultation and have been awarded a $2,000 discount.
(more than their usual scholarship hand out amount :)
Lately even the necessities of life such as food and rent have been hard for me to cover financially.
No one in my family has much money at the moment to support me doing this course.
This is why I am reaching out.
If you, or someone you know, are able to assist me in this journey of recovery, I'd be above and beyond grateful!
I am a naturally generous person and in the future I will give back, but right now, I need help.
Thank you for your time and for reading my campaign.
May the sharing and caring begin!
