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.
Before the Energised Mother Programme I was deep in grief, and feeling so low, depleted, anxious, overwhelmed and just fed up. I was using food as an emotional comforter and had very low mood and energy.
I had suffered from really bad post natal anxiety with both kids, it got worse after my 2nd son and I felt there is not enough help or support for mothers who are struggling. You go to the doctor and are just handed out pills like they are sweets. I had tried them once before and they just did not work for me so I knew I needed natural methodswith zero drugs. I had started to feel a bit better after my 2nd son but still not totally OK. My amazing mum died in February 2020 and I was just not prepared for what the grief could do. All my issues came flooding back and more, insomnia, severe anxiety to the point I couldn’t breathe properly, horrific panic attacks and just complete overwhelm dealing with crippling grief and 2 young kids, and lockdown.
I believe in natural methods 100% and I knew Annie was so passionate about mums wellbeing so I joined the energised mother launch party on Facebook. Annie talks my language, and I was so so lucky and grateful that I won a space on the energised mother programme! I knew this would be a huge turning point for me.
Working in a group and with Annie was amazing. Of course at first I was a little nervous about opening up to the other girls in the group, but everyone was just so lovely and we were all able to really open up and I quickly realised it really was a safe space. I felt supported at all times and never judged. In fact, the first video call we did as a group, I remember listening to one of the other girls in the group talking and I just started to cry because I realised how similar we had all been feeling and i was able to relate to the other girls so much. Annie was upbeat, I loved her energy, passion and felt completely in safe hands.
I feel I have achieved so much. I have grown a lot in confidence, I am more open and able to talk about my feelings and experiences.
I have been able to overhaul my diet and learned how to nourish myself with food. I have learned coping techniques for the times when I am feeling its all too overwhelming! I have got to know my own self on a deep level, what my values and beliefs are and how to change the negative patterns I was stuck in. I have re-wired my brain and my outlook to life!
There were so many penny dropping moments for me, it’s so hard to just pick one. I loved the NLP session Annie and I did when I was able to go back to my 12 year old self, that was so so emotional but incredible healing, I had never experienced anything like it!
I feel more grounded, in control, much more relaxed, things that used to really bother me just don’t anymore. I am able to see forward into the future now with hope and joy. Obviously my grief for my mum is still with me, it always will be with me, but I can still live a full and happy life. I am a better mum to my boys, I have more patience with them.
I cannot recommend this program enough. Life changing doesn’t seem to quite cover it! Transformational, magical, just incredible. Annie is a magical sparkling fountain of knowledge and she cares like no other. I was blown away by just how much she cares. Annie said something to all of us right at the start of the course that I won’t ever forget, it even made me cry but in the nicest way. She said ‘ill believe in you until you believe in yourself’
I just thought that was incredible. I trust Annie 1000%, she has this unique ability to really understand where you are at and beautifully comes up with solutions, no stone is left unturned.
I have said this before, but I really think every mother should be prescribed this program on the NHS after having a baby. It’s the knowledge that every mother needs. Having this program available would massively reduce the amount of mums suffering from post-natal depression and anxiety.
I also loved how Annie also opened up about her own previous struggles with motherhood overload. She really understands because she has experienced it and turned her life completely around! So you know you are in the safest, caring hands if someone who has actually been through it.
What advice would you give to your former self knowing what you know now?
I would say to myself that you are so much stronger than you think and you do have the power to change things. You always had the power, you just needed to be shown how to turn the magic back on again.
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!

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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
