YOUR SECOND CHANCE FOR A GOOD LIFE

I learned how you can heal when you feel too broken and hopeless to heal.

"I vowed to use what I discovered, and do everything I could to spare as many other women as possible the misery of an abusive relationship."

Emotional abuse is never your fault

I’m Annie, and I’m totally committed to helping women, just like you, get over toxic relationships, so they can create the joyful, fulfilling lives they deserve.

If you are a victim of abuse, then you have been blamed for that abuse over and over again.

That abuse was never your fault.

Why should you listen to me?

The reason why I’m so passionate about helping abused women get their lives back is simple: I’ve been one. I’ve been where you are now. I know just how bad it feels.

Leaving was the hardest thing I have ever done. I didn't know if I could survive on my own. But leaving was the beginning of a hugely rewarding journey into a world of meaning, mattering and discovering my true place in the world.

I now have a life rebuilt I never would have dreamed of and a lovely partner. I achieved closure, I know how good it feels, and that's what I want for you.

“You’re worth your weight in gold. But judging by your photo, you probably don’t weigh very much. So I could be selling you short.” 

- Renee Levitt

"Working with Annie has truly been transformational in the very best of ways.   Anxiety and poor self-esteem used to be my constant companions. Annie has changed that in a permanent way.   I now see why and where I was leaving myself open to abusive behaviour but most importantly how to spot it and deal with it effectively.   I read constantly and have worked with others but no one has been able to help me as Annie has."

- Lisa M.

Emotional abuse is just too hard to face on your own.

How can I help you?

1:1 & group coaching

The effects of abuse don't just fade away when the abuser is no longer centre stage in your life. Rather, abuse shapes and limits the way you think and feel.  So, you likely go from an abusive parent to an abusive partner, or one abusive partner to another.

There is NOTHING wrong with you. However, you are stuck in a pattern of thinking and feeling that needs to change.

If you feel you would benefit from working through your feelings with someone who can guide and support you along the journey, group or individual coaching may be just right for you.

How can I protect myself from a narcissistic partner?

One of the first things that a Narcissist teaches you, once the lovebombing has reached its expiration date, is how to compromise.  Needless to say, they don’t teach you by example. Narcissists are not big on making compromises. Instead, they teach you exerting as much psychological and emotional pressure as it takes to make you cave in to their wishes.You soon learn a pattern of more or less automatic compromise/capitulation to their demands that puts you forever on the defensive. Breaking free requires a few subtle mindset shifts.

4 Secrets to Healing from Narcissistic Abuse
Have you come across the oft quoted saying on Instagram: “A Narcissist doesn’t break your heart, they break your spirit, that’s why it takes so long to heal.” It’s one of my personal bugbears.  I understand that it offers a certain gratification, inasmuch as it – rightly – […]

“Was I married to your husband?”

Abusive men are much more like one another than they are like anyone else. They are not your fault. We do them, and ourselves, no favours at all when we tolerate their bad behaviour. Like spoilt children, indulging them only allows them to become worse. But, as chronological adults, it is for them to take responsibility for their own behaviour; not us. No matter how much they may tell us that their bad behaviour is our fault, that doesn’t make it true.
