Internal change had happened surprisingly quickly. I have definitely softened and strengthened as a person. My relationship with my husband and three young children has improved in a way that six months ago was unimaginable. There is less arguing in my home now, and more compassion.
My husband and I are now talking more comfortably, respectfully and lovingly to each other. I can remember Annie telling me that she could see this was going to happen and my reaction was to laugh and laugh: huge belly laughter….I thought “Oh Annie, you have no idea; when pigs fly backwards!!!….but she did know – better than me, as it turns out.
I was also having issues with my 10 year old daughter where frustration and anger would escalate at times to a point which I found frightening and unacceptable for both of us… I now honestly can’t remember the last time we got locked into a screaming battle of wills.
I feel more at peace with myself than I ever have. I am much more accepting of myself and others. I don’t need to prove a point. I can let things be. With Annie’s help, I have found a level of self love and compassion that ripples outwards and encompasses others. I have greater awareness of what I want to do with my life and am excited about the future. I sleep better, I eat better.
Annie’s style of counselling is incredibly creative, intuitive and loving. She has so many tools in her toolbox. Many of the sessions were so much fun! I have had so many amazing epiphanies of self awareness during the past six months. It is the best money I have ever spent.
I can’t praise Annie enough; she walked hand in hand with me through all the painful parts of my past and present; I was never alone. I always felt validated. And we often found so much to laugh at together: she has such a fantastic sense of humour! I can’t recommend her skills and services highly enough.
