On this episode of Stories of HOPE Worldwide we will hear the miraculous story of terrorist attack survivor Ferry Zandvliet. On the 13th November 2015 terrorists stormed the Eagles of Death concert at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris. Tragically 89 people died that night. Ferry survived and shares his compelling story about that night, his recovery from PTSD and what life is like today five years on.




“My family have known Kerrie for 4 years. I have 4 boys and my eldest son got into the drug scene and started being physically and verbally abusive to our whole family. Kerrie used her vast knowledge to help the boys through counselling, and when outside assistance was needed, she took the time to find the appropriate help for us linking us up with outside organizations to assist our difficult family situation.

I can’t thank Kerrie enough for all the help she has given my family.”

“After going through an extremely traumatic time in my life I lost hope of ever living a healthy, happy life where I would feel loved. Kerrie’s support was beyond helpful having someone I could trust in my life and talk to in confidence with zero judgments. Through regular counselling and guidance from Kerrie, I began to find self-worth and hope.  I would highly recommend Kerrie to anyone struggling with any battles no matter how big or small.”

“Having been involved with Kerrie on a number of projects involving both children and adults I can say that she is one of a kind. Kerrie’s passion for helping people in society is unparalleled and something that I have not seen before.

Kerrie should be commended for her efforts and passion in helping people with addictions, mental health and suicide prevention.”

“My son had been struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts and also anxiety for some time, he also was experiencing bullying at school … I took him to see Kerrie and my son has been stable and calm now for about 2 months,  is quite an achievement for him! His anxiety attacks have diminished and he hasn’t had any suicidal episodes for 2 months after only 4 appointments.

I cant tell you how grateful I am for Kerrie and her love, wisdom, guidance and support.”
