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."
Annie Kazina PhD, Women's Abuse Recovery Coach
Award-winning author of the Amazon best-seller Do You Choose Your Dog More Carefully Than Your Husband?
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.

What is the most important thing that survivors of narcissistic abuse forget about? The same thing that they forgot about during the toxic relationship. Their own well-being.
Who might you not be showing the care they need?
How familiar are you with the experience of worrying deeply other people’s feelings to the point of tiptoeing around them, metaphorically speaking? Not least because you know that something about the way that they connect with you (or don’t connect with you) feels a tad off […]
Perhaps the most prevalent coping strategy of all of us survivors of narcissistic abuse that really blights our quality of life is self-blame and self shame.
When you grow up in an environment where kindness and compassion are conspicuous only by their absence, blame and shame become the order of the day. Abusive people, especially abusive loved ones, use blame and shame both to motivate you and to demotivate you to the point of paralysis.
