Client Testimonials

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.

Tracey (Coffs Harbour)

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.

Sarah (Canberra)

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.

Workshop Testimonials

I didn’t know what to expect in this workshop. The biggest insight I learned was that I am not to blame for what happened to me. I definitely would do another. Thank you Vanessa for making so accessible for me.


The whole Family Constellation weekend was valuable!  Overall I valued the care, warmth, support, honesty and courage of everyone.  The facilitation was gentle, caring and patient, open and supportive, wise and safe.

Family Constellation attendeeCoffs Harbour

The ‘Effective Discipline’ workshop was so helpful. I got so many valuable tips that I know I will be able to implement with my kids.  I found the workshop really enjoyable.  Thank you Vanessa.


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.

Jo Foster

At Vanessa’s Negotiating with a Young Terrorist’ workshop I really valued the insight to be wiser and kinder and to listen to my children’s needs.


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. 🙂


I found the opening exercise to be non-threatening and very easy way to start connecting with the group.  I found new insights into my patterns and I appreciated having my own constellation done.  I found Vanessa clear, present and created a great time schedule for the day.  I thought it was great.

Mandie Kilotat

I was blown away how alike the issues of the group were and how easily I could identify with the other participants.  I valued understanding how aligned we all are energetically.  The delivery pace was great and totally honoured each person.

Nikki Perkins

I valued the openness, trust and willingness to share of my fellow participants.  I found the facilitation supportive, more overt when necessary but not controlling!  Participants were gently guided to find their way.
