I just wanted to send you an email to say THANK YOU… thank you for all you have done for me. I feel fantastic and for the first time since January, I really feel alive!!! I feel so positive and excited about my future. I am so excited about Christmas – and this year for the first time in about 12 years, I don’t feel anxious or apprehensive – just excited!!!
I could not have imagined that with the year I have had that I would feeling this positive and energized. When I look back on those first few weeks, how low and broken I was; how desperate I was to hold onto something that just wasn’t meant to be. I truly do feel that this has happened because it was meant to be. It only takes a conversation with the kids to realise the nightmare of a family they were living in.
My son told me yesterday just how scared he was at times with the tension, arguing and anger that was in the home. I had no idea how they felt. They are so settled, happy and content now – as I am. So thank you – for guidance, wisdom, knowledge, techniques, and your belief in me. You are an amazing person and have been a huge part of my “recovery year”. God bless you for who you are!!! I realise that this is still a journey and the road will not be smooth sailing. However, I feel that I can face the start of each day with the knowledge, love and understanding I have received from you, and can finish each day that much stronger. So thank you for being the person you are, thank you for all that you have done for me on my journey and my children’s journey.

I have found that working with these principals and using the tools provided by Vanessa, that my family has really settled down and are now much closer than before. We have a blended family and because I was so worried about protecting my first child from my husband (as they didn’t get along and competed for my attention) that I wasn’t able to be there for either of them. I was continually jumping around and choosing sides. Now I have learned how to manage that situation by listening and encouraging resolution as well as deal with my own guilt for not being with my child’s father. I am so grateful and highly recommend Vanessa for any struggling family.
Vanessa has such a calming influence and is full of practical advice. She has helped me integrate into my new family (my wife had two children from a previous marriage) and navigate being a parent of pre-teen and teenage years. Without her support and advice, I’m sure I would have continued to struggle, instead I have bonded well and really appreciate and understand my step children.

Mum – This workshop gave me useful insights into events out of our control. It was great to be an observer and have clarity. I really found the facilitation to be a lot of support and healing.
Daughter – This was the first time and I really connected with everyone. I felt really happy. I am up for the next one!
Watching Vanessa bring down walls and remove blocks was inspiring.
I really enjoyed seeing everyone connecting and releasing. I learned the value of moving forwards and not backwards and how blame gets in the way of healing. I feel a release of negative energy and I now know why I haven’t been moving forwards in my life.
It was profoundly moving to watch others constellations but to be a member of them (as a representative) was even more so, to feel others journey myself was something I’ve never experienced. It was heart opening and extremely special. I’m so glad I came to experience this. 🙂
The course was brilliant, not only in the sense of learning the peaceful parenting techniques, but in learning techniques that help ALL of my relationships, even with yourself. I really found you easy to relate to and open and loved the way you concreted these new concepts and ways throughout the 6 week course. I would definitely advocate your services and courses to friends and family and in general. This course has been life changing and appealed to so many of my likes and values. I cannot tell you thank you enough.
It’s a pleasure to have the opportunity to engage in way in which Vanessa ‘holds’ the workshop. It’s inspiring to work with people so committed to self-growth.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity to peel another layer of the onion of my self development. Forever grateful.
After the very first day of the course things changed overnight. And by that I mean the way I think and the way I deal with my kids. I realised that SO many things were not their problem, but mine. And that all the little things that bothered me, made me angry, or were just downright not working could be changed, fixed, altered or adjusted. Some things I basically let go.
But there is obviously way more to the course than this. I probably wasn’t quite prepared for how intense and full-on it is. Well, it would have to be to succeed in making a parent change the way they parent. Every Friday I would come home totally exhausted but also excited and happy that really positive changes were being made.
And the other thing I will say about the Peaceful Parenting course is that it not only changes and affects the way you deal with your kids, but also everyone else in your life from your partner to your parents to your friends. It teaches you how to really listen, how to let go of your own agenda. It isn’t an easy fix, magical solution that will stop working at the age of 10, 13, 15 or 20. You are skills and insights that will help you change the way you think and deal with things for the rest of your life.
I can’t recommend this course enough, it has changed my family for the better. But like I said, it is intense – so be prepared!
Thank you for the gentle, caring space to sense and observe healing and growth!
Always learn something new!
