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."

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.

Are you still playing catchup and how to stop
This week, I really want to talk to you about catchup. It’s far from being my favorite game but it is very much on my mind this week. But I’ve spent the last 24 hours playing catch up with myself.

Why?

Because my partner is struggling with his health […]

The Freedom to Make Mistakes

You learn, in a toxic relationship, that there are no innocent mistakes ever. At least when you are the person making the mistakes. As ever, an entirely different set of rules apply to the Narcissist. Even when, one way or another, the Narcissist exits your life, your patterned trauma response does not depart with them. You still retain the same dread of making mistakes.

How easily wounded are you by people’s hurtful words?

Almost all survivors of narcissistic abuse need to perform a total rethink about the power of words. We have been taught – mostly by people some way along the abusive spectrum – that their words are not a big deal.  They argue that we we should be able to brush them off.  (Even though this is yet another of those cases where there is one law for you and quite another for them.) Instead, you need to learn what their words say about them.
