It’s hard to put into words what the last 6 months have been like for me. But I hope this goes some way to helping you and any potential clients understand what a transformation I have gone through. You are truly one of the people who have had the biggest impact on my life. You have sling shot me forward to embark on a life I never thought possible and I will always be wholeheartedly grateful for that. There is now a ripple effect occurring as the calm and more positive person I am now is impacting the lives of my family and friends around me.
Before working with Annie, I felt like I was wading through treacle everyday. I was suffering with brain fog, lack of energy, I was indecisive and over thinking most things; in short, I was most definitely not enjoying my life in the way I should have been.
Through a systematic approach, we worked on resorting and improving my gut health to help bring back my energy levels and reduce the symptoms of brain fog. In addition to this we tackled some traumatic life events . Annie has helped me to reframe and address these events – this had led to a lot of closure and I now love and look after myself in the way that I should. We have set goals and broken down the limiting barriers I put in place for myself over the years.
6 months on, I am far more efficient with my time and care free about many things that would have previously left me riddled with anxiety and worry. My children have their fun filled and happy mum back, and I am enjoying being a mum in a way I didn’t think was possible; my husband has his happy carefree wife back and more importantly I have my life back. I now look forward to each day and to the possibilities that it may bring and I am genuinely excited for the future.
Annie is a truly sincere and caring person, her wealth of experience is not only in gut health and nutrition but also in life coaching. She is passionate about what she does and genuinely cares. I am sure there are many people in this line of work who go through ‘the motions’ with their clients, Annie is most definitely not like this. Her work matters and as a client, I felt that I mattered. I cannot rate Annie highly enough and am certain that anyone who works with her will see improvements in their life – I know I am well on the way to being the best person I can be.
I had been suffering with poor gut health and anxiety for many years. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t worrying or frightened about something. My health this year has rapidly degenerated, resulting in alarming weight loss, fear of food, low mood, destroyed libido, and much upset for my beautiful family. The fact we were in lockdown compounded this situation, as I wasn’t able to see anyone for help and my friends had no idea I was suffering.
Annie is my absolute KNIGHTESS IN SHINING ARMOUR. She has been genuinely wonderful to work with – kind, understanding, supportive, honest, real, runny, non-judgemental and easy to approach. not only has she supported me in working on improving my physical health problems, but she has also tackled all other aspects of my being – the emotional, spiritual, heart, and mental aspects of me asn an individual. I have felt strongly connected to Annie throughout this programme, and hope this connection remains. She is a rare gem and I love her!
Joining the programme has allowed me to develop awareness of so many aspects of my life – the way I treat myself; the way I allow others to influence & control me; the ways in which I am powerfully connected to our world; the power I have to define my own experience of this life; the ways in which I can support my body in healing itself. The programme has enabled me to uncover SO much about my health in terms of my gut, thyroid, hormones, inflammation and immune system…and to learn how tightly they are all connected to each other! Although I still have a lot of healing to do, I now have the knowledge & understanding of my issues, which has taken away a lot of the fear.
The programme has been massively important for me as it has taught me how to use my traits as an Empath as a SUPER POWER, not something to fight against or get frustrated about. My traits are positive, they do good in this world and I am learning to embrace them. The programme has given me permission to be the person I AM – not the person I think others want me to be. I am starting to think I might find confidence, whilst aligning myself with my deeply held values – for the first time in nearly 38 years.
The programme has provided me with a lot of tools to help manage my anxiety and constant story – writing…it has actually enabled me to re write my own script, which was such an emotional process! Being a Mum is the toughest, most rewarding job in the whole world, and our love for our families makes us sacrifice ourselves and everything that we are. It doesn’t have to be this way!
Annie has been an incredible support to me after having two babies in two years.
She took the time to understand my chronic health issues. She guided me through functional testing to offer the nutritional advice and supplements I needed to get me back on track.
Annie knows her stuff, is open hearted and a true problem solver.
Her energy and advice have helped me shift from depleted to energised through healing the gut and reducing inflammation. I’m still a work in progress (who isn’t?) but I now have the confidence to support my body and in turn, my family.
I was at your lecture today and as you were quite busy speaking to people by the end of it, I just wanted to take the opportunity to now reach out and thank you for a great presentation. I’m quite well-read but learned so many new things this morning which I’m excited to explore further going forward. You were super informative and very relatable, and I left feeling inspired and motivated!
I also wanted to share with you my favourite moment from today. As you described going through a detox from previous bad habits, and then described reaching the end of the detox with something along the lines “and there I was: the person I had tried to run away from all along”. This was SO powerful and led me to so many insights that I’ve spent the day processing. Thank you for being so honest and open in sharing your story, it was such a joy listening to you!

I attended your lecture today on the gut-brain connection, it was fantastic and so inspiring! Everything you spoke about really resonated with me and made me even more curious about this subject! I took a note of some of the references and am looking forward to learning more!

I really enjoyed your CNM presentation last night. I learnt so much. You made things accessable without being too simplistic. Thank you!

Before the course I was still feeling overwhelmed ..Brain fogged and although we had our baby girl wasn’t always on cloud 9 as thought I ought to be as was so tired and a bit bogged down with all I thought I ‘should’ be doing. Realise that still although loads had changed on the outside, still needed to keep working on all the other inner ‘stuff ‘. It’s a constant journey.
Hesitated as with a young baby was unsure I could find the time for everything . But it was a real bonus for me to know would have this toolkit available to me to dip in and out of over the rest of this journey would be invaluable. Know how much you helped me get up to this point and realised that support at this stage to mother me a little bit would help everyone!
Really enjoyed the group and how everyone supported each other. Thought you were really thorough on the coaching calls too. Felt good to have completed something just for me at the end of this rollercoaster year. Definitely feel clearer on my values and mini missions. Try to come back to this when feel any self doubts kicking in.
Has made me look at my struggles to get in here a different way and begin to think about how I could use it too to help others. Discovered things along the way that kept inspiring me: ‘notes to self’ on audible, recorded my own voice clip of story one day & let Kevin know listen so far!, motherless mother’s Facebook group ( though seems quite ‘heavy’ so not quite sure about that yet, article of yin yoga / grief is screen shotted and re-read at this stage.
Empowered, Happy I did it, Great to meet the others, Keen to revisit again when I need a pick me up, To go for it and invest in themselves, You help on so many levels as well nutrition aspects, You are really caring, thorough and empathetic and fun as well, Length of course & lessons seemed spot on to me. The extra week in between was a handy – a kind of handy ‘half term ‘catch up in between too for people. Loved the suggestions for other further reading / podcasts too to delve into things later in more detail
It’s been amazing working with you too at this stage. We got there !! Thanks again for everything. Such a lovely group we had . No doubt with all these tools the energy will improve too if we manage a few more consistent zzz’s
Hi, my name is Marta and I am full time working a mum of Lena (10 years). I am 39 and for the last 13 years or more I have been suffering from very severe bowel symptoms. When I started working with Annie I was at the brink of despair. I had been experiencing extreme bloating to the point that I looked like a pregnant woman whatever I ate. I used to struggle with long term constipation that could last up to 6 days. My self-esteem was bottom low as I was looking fat and uncomfortable. At the time I figured out that my bowel problems were directly related to my mood and that is how I met Annie – during one of her brain and gut connection lectures. At the very beginning I never allowed myself to think that I would be symptom- free, actually it never crossed my mind. I was only hoping for a tiniest improvement in symptoms. The 5 months of working with Annie made me believe in miracles, literally. Her holistic attitude, enormous specialist knowledge and a fact that she is a lovely, caring person, firstly freed me from my long term symptoms of bloating. Then, within 3 months I could not remember what the bloating felt. Alongside we worked on my emotional wellbeing, and Anny who I would describe as one the most sunny, knowledgeable and empathic person with unbelievable open mind and holistic approach made it a real treat for me. It was a pleasure resulting in gaining more self-awareness. She was able to organise my thoughts, understand underlying anxiety and make a sense out of my mental struggles. I would recommend working with Anny to anybody to be honest. Everyone could benefit from her knowledge, experience and understanding of body mind connection. I even wanted my mum to work with Anny but she did not agree because she can not speak English but… my mum is one of the most important people in my life and she was the first one I wanted to get help from Annie.
If magic exists, it definitely happened here.
Thank you ANNIE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
