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.

I’m very glad I came to the workshop. I appreciated seeing other people get some closure and I let go of the shame for my own actions in my past. I feel that a shift has happened in my heart and in myself so I can move forward in my life. It was a wonderful experience.
This workshop is such an amazing experience as it helps shift the baggage you have been carrying around for years. I got to see my husband do something positive towards getting better. It was lovely.
Thank you. I was inspired by people’s openness and courage. I look forward to doing a constellation next time 🙂
Thank you for a safe and open environment to learn to follow my true self.
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!
Always learn something new!
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.
Well planned and researched course which challenges traditional parenting methods and provides vital skills to improve communication with children about the tough issues. Thanks Vanessa!
I’m feeling much lighter and reflective rather than heavy and slightly obsessive. The small group exercise was good but so was the constellation process with everyone. The gentle guidance and encouragement from Vanessa and others in the group was so good.
After participating in Vanessa’s workshop Negotiating with a Young Terrorist it made me consider how I go about teaching my kids and how I can change. I really enjoyed the workshop!
