I used to believe I was some sort of freak because nobody could think the things that I thought, feel the things I felt and behave the way I had behaved.
I don’t think like that anymore.
Today, I feel that 7.8 billion people in the world are one. We share the same strange thoughts, experience the same freakish feelings, and keep carrying out destructive behaviours.
In short, we are all a little bit fucked up.
So what’s the remedy?
We need more people speaking their truth. That’s the vibration I want to see rippling throughout the world, and it begins with a single vibration - me.
I created this monologue because I have seen too many self-help coaches provide help and support for victims of narcissists by throwing the narcissists under the bus. For every narcissist victim they 'save', they are driving someone else deeper into their shame.
That’s not what I signed up for when I decided to help people.
My name is Lee Davy; I am not an alcoholic. I refuse to be anonymous, and I have narcissistic traits.
If you would like to work with Lee Davy, then head to www.1000dayssober.com to hire him as a 1-1 coach or join the STRIVE family.

Richard Schwartz began his career as a family therapist and an academic at the University of Illinois at Chicago. There he discovered that family therapy alone did not achieve full symptom relief and in asking patients why he learned that they were plagued by what they called “parts.” These patients became his teachers as they described how their parts formed networks of inner relationships that resembled the families he had been working with. He also found that as they focused on and, thereby, separated from their parts, they would shift into a state characterized by qualities like curiosity, calm, confidence and compassion. He called that inner essence the Self and was amazed to find it even in severely diagnosed and traumatized patients. From these explorations, the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model was born in the early 1980s.
IFS is now evidence-based and has become a widely-used form of psychotherapy, particularly with trauma. It provides a non-pathologizing, optimistic, and empowering perspective and a practical and effective set of techniques for working with individuals, couples, families, and more recently, corporations and classrooms.
In 2013 Schwartz left the Chicago area and now lives in Brookline, MA where he is on the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

Victoria has been in the world of personal development and healthcare for almost 20 years.
During the course of her own transformative healing journey, which lasted over a decade, Victoria studied under various spiritual, somatic and trauma-aware teachers. She was one of the original students trained by Ra Uru Hu in Human Design, and then by Richard Rudd in Gene Keys - and is also qualified in mindset reframing techniques such as NLP and CBT.
As her recovery progressed she studied physical disciplines, becoming a certified Nutritionist and Functional Medicine Practitioner. Ultimately, with this diverse skillset, she went on to run her own successful Medical and Healthcare Practice from the world-renowned Harley Street Medical Centre in London, UK for almost 7 years.
She has worked with over 1000 patients globally and acted as a consultant to several leading healthcare companies using her unique, trauma-informed approach which focuses on regulating the nervous system as the foundation for healing and self-actualisation. Because of this nervous system focus, Victoria also established a coaching/inner work branch in her business, supporting individuals, executives and company teams to evolve, transform and up-level every area.
Coaching is ultimately where Victoria’s passion lies, so she has now transitioned away from medicine and offers intensive 1-2-1 coaching packages aimed at supporting anyone who is ready to embark upon personal evolution and ultimate becoming. In particular, her 1-2-1 work is suited to executives and leaders looking to unlock their limitless potential. Victoria is also building a suite of courses that provide the roadmaps for inner work and transformational healing for anyone seeking support to undertake these life-changing inner journeys.
