Mum who jumped from a P&O cruise liner had ‘life-changing’ sessions with a hypnotherapist just weeks before her ill-fated death.
Mother-of-three, Natasha Schofield, 47, posted a five-star review on the hypnotherapy page on February 23 claiming the service had changed her life – giving her thoughts clarity and making her calmer.
‘Your sessions and audio recording have been life-changing for me. I am calmer, I have clarity in my thoughts and I am finding mindfulness so easy now,’ she wrote.
‘To anyone who is thinking of making an appointment, do it, she is amazing and could just be the answer you are looking for.’
The hypnotherapist who saw Mrs Schofield in those sessions told Daily Mail Australia she could not comment on the matter as she is bound by confidentiality.
The mother-of-three threw herself overboard at 4pm on Thursday while on the ‘holiday of a life-time’ with her family.
Speaking out this week, Mrs Schofield’s close friend, Damon Smith, said ‘hurting her family is the last thing she would have wanted’.
‘Tash would never intentionally hurt her husband or children, her family or friends – everything that has happened on that boat is the complete opposite to what she would ever want,’ Mr Smith said.
‘She must have arrived in a very dark and desperate place in her mind, very very quickly.’
Mr Smith said he heard from Mrs Schofield’s husband that her behaviour began to change in the 24 hours leading up to her suicide.
‘[Her husband] said she didn’t seem herself for just over a day but she assured him she was fine,’ he said.
Her husband tried to grab her leg – but sadly she couldn’t be saved.
