“As a clinical psychologist, I’ve seen a lot of women in private practice seek therapy following toxic and abusive relationships. Words cannot describe the amount of pain and suffering that these women have endured, and coming out of such relationships takes a lot of courage and strength. I am very grateful to have been a part of their journey of recovery, which can take up to several years.
However, it brings me peace of mind and happiness to know that there IS a way to help prevent people from getting hurt in the future.
The questions in the app devised by Nigel are absolutely on-point. They shed light on possible red flags to be mindful of when entering into a relationship. I strongly believe that this app can help individuals think twice before entering and fully investing in a potentially unhealthy relationship. In addition, there are several useful features in the app such as “The Journal”, which encourages the user to write down their thoughts and ideas following a date. Journaling is a very helpful technique to monitor our thoughts and emotions, and allows us to reflect on our experiences.
I hope people recognize the value of the DateShield app.”
