What Others Say

I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury from a motor accident in late 2004 to such an extent that my wife and family were told that I had less than 1% of surviving. After spending 4 months in hospital I have recovered physically to such an extent that my resultant mental handicap does not show.

When discharged from hospital I was not given the opportunity of having counselling whilst I was a patient. I was provided with some counselling by work cover for 2 sessions which was mainly for them to assess the extent my brain injury so they could finalise their file on my case and not for my benefit. When I reached the realization and admitted to myself, as I was told by the hospital system, that I would never work again and would probably only get marginally better than I was, over the ensuing years following, I  was then left to my own devices. As far as I was concerned, and very important to me, as I became aware of in my rehabilitation the clinical psychologist provided by work  cover did not provided any positive counselling or rehabilitation advice regarding my brain injury, or the resultant social changes that would affect me and my life style. After spending some time searching TBI and Brain Injuries on the web I discovered Christian King.

To say that Christian has been helpful to me and my wife from the resultant phone calls and emails and my understanding and acceptance of my TBI and how it would affect my life and resultant life style, would be an understatement. I have never been happier and content to such an extent that my family and friends note the improvement.

The biggest regret I have is that it took me over 3 years to find Christian. It is a blessing to communicate with somebody who empathizes, understands and knows what those who suffer from TBI and their  loved ones go through. Christian became my life change case manager purely because of his understanding and advice that helped me to accept my TBI and with the life changes that come with it. Without his counselling I am sure my life would have been unbearable to me and those in family whom I love. Most of all he has helped me to love myself.

As a TBI sufferer and from personal experience I recommend Christian and the Brain Injury Centre.

From the bottom of my heart I thank you.

Christian King entered our lives as a result of my son suffering Traumatic Brain Injury in 2005.  After many website searches looking for any information that may give us some understanding on what my son had suffered.

My answers were never fully explained when I received emails and/or phone calls from different sources, I still today search for answers. My youngest daughter was having much difficulty in dealing with her brother’s accident and his brain injury.

She had many issues that she was unable to handle and one day asked me to help her find someone who she could confide.

I contacted Christian and asked if he could help my daughter. As we live in different states, I did not anticipate an outcome.

Christian has not only exceeded my daughter’s expectations but I have also been given his unlimited support in guiding me in dealing with my son’s issues.

Christian has made himself available to my family, all 6 children and their partners, at any given time, day or night. His empathy and driven endeavors to achieve positive outcomes is a humble achievement.

Those like my son can only benefit from Christian's dedication and those like my daughter and myself can only grow.

Thank you Christian

Christian,

Wow, how enlightening it was for to speak with You today.
It must have been an hour. So encouraging.

It's hard to put words to how i feel as result of your approach.

It's practical!  Which may not always mean the news is easy to swallow.
But if one has suffered a head injury for 30 years, they will realise there's a lot of stuff that's not easy to swallow!

Thanks for Your efforts, commitment, vision and passion for people that need lot's more like You.

Deep thanks,
N.
Victoria
