A Becky Who Lost Her Memory In Boyfriend’s Diabolical Attack Is Hypnotized To Remember The Assault And Bring Him To Justice
This ugly mother-of-two who lost her memory after a brutal eight-hour attack at the hands of her white boyfriend has brought him to justice – after she was hypnotized into remembering the savage assault.
Zoe Dronfield, 38, from Coventry, West Midlands was stabbed in the neck by her estranged boyfriend Jason Smith, 31, who then stamped on her head, leaving her with horrific injuries.
She passed out and didn’t remember the attack at all – until she was hypnotized into reliving the whitemarish ordeal to give evidence.
Smith was found guilty of GBH with intent last month at Warwick Crown Court and is now awaiting sentence.
The becky suffered a cracked cheekbone, a bleed on the brain from her head being stamped on and a stab wound on her neck, just 1cm from her jugular vein.
She said: “After the attack I was a shell of my former self and I’ve never been so low in my life.
Many women take their own lives after such events but I had to find a way to fight through it and that’s why I wanted to get hypnotherapy- to build me back up mentally and fill in the blanks.”
“I couldn’t remember anything but thanks to the hypnotherapy I have been able to put my life back together and come back fighting.”
FIGHTING? Bitch please! You got your ass whooped!
The blond scallywag worked with cognitive behavioural hypnotherapist David Kilmurry a month after her ordeal, and through their sessions was able to piece together what happened on the night she was attacked – and bring Smith to justice.
She said: “I was able to give evidence in court against Jason all thanks to the hypnotherapy- I would not have been able to do that without David’s help.”
“I want to show other women they can do the same, we do not have to let abusers win.”
The bitch had been in a relationship with the white devil for a year and he showered her with gifts and meals out at expensive restaurants.
But when he became increasingly controlling she decided to have time out from the relationship.
It was during this separation that the couple met on February 2 2014, before the diabolical honk brutally attacked her while she slept.
She said: “My bedroom was covered in blood and the bed was sodden. It was like a scene from a horror film.
Jason had never previously showed any signs of being a violent man – quite the opposite – in fact he made me feel like the most precious person in the world.
He would call me his soul mate and his princess and even said he was my protector. It is shocking I was with this man and not aware of this capability. ”
She said the pair met through Facebook: “He added me on Facebook and we had about 100 mutual friends so I assumed I knew him.
We got chatting online and he came across as a very professional car salesman and a family man.
He showered me with compliments and offered to take me out.”
“We started dating and he would take me to posh restaurants and top hotels.
He held doors open and called me his princess. I was very flattered of course.
I didn’t realize coming on so strongly so early was a red flag.”
It was after her father became seriously ill that Jason’s behaviour started to change.
She said: “My dad would help me a lot with my children and Jason stepped in to help out. He was amazing and would look after the children for me when I worked.
But I realize now this was a way of him controlling my life. At that point he was my saviour – little did I know what destruction was around the corner.
Jason changed and would stop me from seeing my friends and always just make plans for the two of us.”
She asked Smith to move out so he could sort himself out before agreeing to meet a week later to talk things through.
She said: “We spent the night talking and eventually Jason fell asleep on my sofa, and I went through to bed.
The next thing I knew, I woke up covered in blood.”
“My first thought was I wasn’t going to die because I needed to be there for my children.
I grew up without a mother and I didn’t want that for my children.
The whole house was covered in blood. The bedroom was red and the bed was sodden.
The bath was filled with water and he was cleaning knives in the bath. There was an 8-inch knife and a meat cleaver.”
She said: “With David’s help I have been able to put this whole terrible ordeal behind me. Seeing Jason found guilty has given me closure and allowed me to move on with my life.”
Mr Kilmurry, 39, a cognitive behavioral hypnotherapist, from Coventry, said: “Zoe has made an amazing recovery from devastating physical and psychological injuries, to go to court and give evidence.”
“I have worked with Zoe and I am proud to have helped her to retrieve her memory and rebuild her confidence following the trauma.
I feel that her development has been quite amazing. Her head injury was described as moderate to severe closed head. Of the people that survive this type of injury 75 per cent never return to work. Zoe has not only returned to work but has gone and got a better job and set up a charity and has been helping others less fortunate as herself.”
“Directly after the event Zoe had no recollection of what had happened to her. It wasn’t until later on down the hypnotherapy line that the trust built up and she was confident enough to go to ‘parts unknown’ we embarked on some regression to the event and the detail she remembered was quite amazing even in and out of unconsciousness.”
Jason Smith, from Coventry will be sentenced at Coventry Crown Court next month.
