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.
If these have inspired you to begin today… find out how we can help you...
My mind is expanding through this course. I feel such relief learning there are other options to supporting my children’s emotional growth.
I feel really hopeful – thank you Vanessa and to all the other workshop participants. I think I can move forward now in my life. 🙂 YEAH!!
When I attended the ‘Negotiating with a Young Terrorist’ workshop I got a new insight as to the parent’s role when it comes to negotiating with my young ones. Thank you!
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.
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.
I felt blessed to be a part of others healings and grateful for the support for my own. Being able to address such confronting issues within a safe and protected environment was very liberating. Many thanks!
More men should do this workshop!
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 a life changing weekend for me Vanessa. The depth of insight, the clarity of a different perspective, the ‘Aha’ moments, the release and the rawness and realness. It was an amazing experience, I walked away with a healed heart on the issues I worked through. I would definitely come to another workshop, so powerful. Crazy good x Blessed to have been a part of it
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.
