As a child, Di would help her father and brothers with the family milk run, getting up in the wee hours to do the rounds. She hated the early mornings but loved coming home to count the money. It was no surprise when accounting became her favourite subject in high school and she went on to become a Chartered Accountant.
However, working in the money business felt shallow and Di came to realise that people are more important than any metric, and decided to start her own business, Wildfire Business Consulting so she could make a deeper impact for businesses.
Then on March 26, 2017, Di woke with a start in the middle of the night. Her right arm numb, her speech slurred. Confused and disoriented, Di was rushed to hospital and underwent a battery of tests but the doctors could find no physical cause.
Conventional medicine could not help Di, so she turned to trauma therapy and discovered how anxiety and stress was the major cause of her struggle.
Conventional medicine could not help Di, so she turned to trauma therapy and discovered how anxiety and stress was the major cause of her struggle. Di learned that mental health issues can be triggered by many things – trauma, loss, illness, poverty, but she also believes the Western lifestyle and values are a significant contributing factor.
Our ‘busyness’ and focus on the superficial, transient and material possessions; our obsession with competition, winning and achievement; means, that we are rarely content or satisfied, and always wanting more. We focus more on what we lack, and think we are not enough and not worthy.
Di now works with not-for-profit organisations, companies and small businesses to help them implement good mental health strategies, working alongside the leaders and owners to let go of societal expectations, and create a culture where everyone can live life with purpose, love and compassion, creating peace, joy and wonder while you work.
