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.

How much does a feeling of worthlessness cost you?
You can take a person out of an abusive situation, but it can sometimes prove a lot harder to take the abusive programming out of the person. When you stop buying into that old feeling of worthlessness, you lose the appeal you once had for Narcissists.
Could you have underestimated just how grandiose your Narcissist really was?
All Narcissists are grandiose in their own own way. They all have their exceptional hero and victim story. When it comes to you, however, the narrative changes. Mostly, they focus on your mistakes, alleged flaws and vulnerability. Some focus on your qualities. Yet even if they put you on a pedestal – especially in public – they still manage to use your qualities to make you feel unworthy. The one thing that they will never accept is your authenticity.
Why is acceptance such a big deal for survivors of narcissistic abuse?
True acceptance of my narcissistic relationship would have meant acknowledging that I was totally lost, confused, hurting, ashamed of myself, heartbroken, despairing and not prepared to give up on someone who thoroughly disliked me.
