Angela’s Testimonial

Hello, my name is Angela.
Three months ago I decided to undertake the 90 day “Freedom to Flourish” programme with Joanne Waine. I was at the lowest point in my life that I have ever been, to the point where I couldn’t go into work, relationships around me were breaking down, and I became a person who I didn’t want to be. I contacted Joanne after months of thought about needing help, and from the very beginning she made me feel very comfortable over the phone, which put me at ease to be able to make the decision that the 90 day programme was the right investment I needed for my future. 
I had been suffering from anxiety from past traumas of family and relationship problems and I could not focus on anything in the moment to be able to live content and fulfilled life, with my lifestyle being filled with binge drinking and nights out that resulted me feeling worse and unable to cut the chord with this lifestyle. I found that no matter what I did or what I tried, I could not move forward and the rut I was stuck in, I could not escape. My relationship with my long term partner of eight years couldn’t progress because of my confusion and not being able to cope with life, and this put a big strain on us knowing that he was carrying me constantly with worry, and knowing that this isn’t healthy I knew something needed to change.
I did not realise how much of an impact a past trauma had, affecting my life with the event happening many years ago. Initially discussing this to somebody who you don’t know is a daunting thought, but Joanne put me totally at ease and made me feel that unravelling all aspects of myself, where I want to go moving forward, and who I want to be has improved my confidence, my abilities and my beliefs within myself that I can do anything, and it is ok to say no and not to be a mug!
I am now much more of a balanced person within every aspect of my life at home, work, and socially, understanding what is and isn’t important to me, and the filters that have been stopping me from living in the present have been unblocked and dealt with resulting in a much happier me. My lifestyle has changed for the better with tons energy, confidence and the icing on the cake: weight loss!
I would like to say a HUGE thankyou to you Joanne for everything you have done in order for me to be able to get my life where it needs to be. Without you I wouldn’t be where I am now, and wouldn’t like to imagine three months’ time where I would be. I would urge anyone who is struggling with any aspect of life to contact Joanne, and see your journey as an investment for your life and future in order to be the best possible version of you.
I am very grateful for you Joanne being so willing and going the extra in my time of need, and I wish you the best of luck with everything.
Angela.

Val’s testimonial

“Hello, my name is Val.

I recently signed up and completed for the 90-day course with Joanne Waine. It was not a light decision and I had intended to use the money for a ‘well deserved cruise’. However, a quick fix to enjoy a holiday would not change my lifestyle on my return. I was gifted a small amount of money so I redirected it to my transformation into who I am now.

In fact the journey I embarked on became more rewarding than I could have ever imagined. Anyone who truly wants to make changes for the better and live the life they deserve, must not hold back on any uncomfortable secrets that we all have in our past or living with it in the present. The power it had over me simply paralyzed my energy and eroded any opportunity of self-worth.

I uncovered traumas that happened in my childhood, middle age and more. With Joanne’s skills, I took control of any power it had over me. Each decade in my life has contained a mistaken thought or event of blame/guilt that felt so real. My subconscious mind put that feeling on the list of low self-esteem labels that I considered true. How can anyone move forward with such heavy mental shackles pulling you backwards?

Outwardly I am a confident, funny, hard working woman. I never married but now at the age of 61, realise I naively invested in emotional martyrdom with far too many relationships that paid no dividends. Quite the reverse, resulting in physical and violent emotional damage. I was attracting completely the wrong sort of partner. I had given up on starting any relationship due to the failures of the past. It was affecting how I worked too. My mind was on overdrive.

I have learnt new attitudes, values and filters to issues that in the past would have destroyed my confidence. Of course, life will always give me challenges but I am not unable to overcome them. Quite the contrary, I face each day with a happiness and joy that I have so missed. Living in the present is not ignoring my responsibilities but fearing the future is totally pointless to me now. I also am prepared to welcome an affectionate and responsible lover who will enhance me as a being, and whom I can enrich in turn.

I hope that anyone thinking of taking the same path as I did, will find this useful. I decided on a longer course of sessions to achieve my final holistic result. All symptoms of stress/addictions come from an unhappy life so one-off therapy appointments were never going to be enough for me.

Good luck to you and thank you to Joanne for appearing in my life, just at the right time.”

A letter from Alison … “Thank you, Joanne, for all your help with overcoming my phobia of dentists.

When I first came to see you, I had an acute anxiety over anything to do with dentists – I couldn’t even talk about it or look at pictures on TV let alone set foot in a dentist’s surgery! The trauma of visiting the dentist would leave me feeling physically ill for days afterwards, and I had avoided having any treatment for over 10 years.

After several sessions with you, and practising the exercises that you gave me to do at home, I then I felt ready to take my first big step – to contact a dentist for an assessment. I was amazed by the difference in how I felt. I was able to visit the dentist and have an examination, with none of the usual nerves and anxiety leading up the appointment. I felt calm and relaxed throughout the appointment and when I left I was able to carry on with my day to day tasks without even a backward thought about what had happened.

I have now also been able to go and have treatment, and even refused the sedation that I was offered!

The knock on effect is that I also feel more positive in my life overall, and motivated to push ahead and achieve things that I have been putting off or that I did not think possible.

I am happy to recommend you to anyone who is struggling with a fear that is holding them back and having a negative effect on their life, as I think that they will find it hugely beneficial to them. Keep up the good work!

Alison Milton Keynes”

Joanne, I just wanted to thank you again for everything you have done to help my insomnia.

I have noticed such a positive change in myself since I came to see you at the end of November/beginning of December and all of my friends and family have noticed it too.

I have learned to sleep a lot better
using all of the techniques you have shown me has helped such a great deal.

Learning to relax and how the subconscious mind can work really does make you think twice about certain things and has given me such a lot of confidence and reassurance over the last few months.

You are lovely to talk to and made me feel at ease and just want to say a massive thank you, I would highly recommend you.

Suzi’s Story

Thanks so much Joanne for turning my life around.

Before I came to you … Well where do I start.at the beginning,my first visit was about me trying to stop smoking.yr session helped me so much as I no longer had the desire or want to smoke.every session that I have had with u there after,made me realise that I was harbouring a mix of negative feelings over some situations that had happened in my past.ie when I found out about in my 22nd week of pregnancy that H… and E… had a condition called twin to twin transfusion,and unfortunately I had to make the decision about having to loose E to save h or let nature take its course and I would have lost both.as they are identical they are in the same sack,after E died the pregnancy carried on for 11 weeks and thankfully h was ok.when I found out that the condition was 65 per sent treatable with success if found out a s a p.i was very angry.now years later I went to u for help with my husband and I,unbeknown to me,all the twin to twin came out in the session and from after that session I had no anger sadness and guilt feelings,which when ever I talked about the condition I would feel such painful feelings inside me.that session helped me to loose all those awful feelings and I just felt a warm love comfort feeling every time I had a reminder of a difficult time..now lately the sessions have helped me and David to communicate better and understand each other more,it has moved our life on so much and we are connected in a really strong way and we are expressing things that we feel and acting on them,it has brought us so much closer in ever respect.i genuinely feel if we did not come to you for help we would not be together now and we are in such a happier exciting place and we are both looking forward to our future.the sessions definitely helped us no end with this… I am not too good at writing so I hope u understand the gist of how the sessions have helped.honestly they have been so beneficial, Thank u .x
