K learned that she deserves to take care of herself - it's an act of love towards herself and her family. Before coaching, K felt like she was "losing control of her life", but after a 16-week package of coaching she now has new ways to view situations in her life and she is embracing some "me time".
Her message to you? "I would strongly recommend this programme to anyone who is flailing around and needs support to focus on getting things back together. I can see that this programme would work for anyone as the principles and power types are within us all."
How was your life before the programme?
Before the programme my life was stressful. I was carrying a lot of guilt and fear and felt as though I was losing control of my life.
Why did you decide to do it?
I decided to get coaching having previously spoken to Anna about a different subject. She seemed to understand how manic my life was and she knew she had the tools to help me. I was so desperate at this point I didn’t feel that I had anything to lose.
Did you have any objections before starting?
I didn’t have any objections, but I had fears that I was telling Anna things that I hadn’t openly spoken about before. I felt guilt at sometimes having to be brutal about how I felt when discussing my inabilities to run a harmonious home and having to admit that I was not able to fully cater for my families’ needs.
What’s the biggest result so far?
The biggest result for me is learning to appreciate what I can offer and that I am enough. I’ve learnt to accept that I need support at times and that’s not being a failure. I’ve learnt to value my worth which will, in turn, add value to my business. I’ve learnt that I’ve always acted and behaved and made decisions that were the best that I could do at the time and that’s ok. Acknowledging the past is important in order to move forward.
What tools have made the biggest difference?
The tools that have made the biggest difference to me are:
Understanding the different power types and how I can channel each and every one of them according to the situation I find myself in.
Understanding that I have been dominated by the Martyr for many years and I am now able to put that part of me aside. I learnt a lot from those days but my values, experiences and future are more in line with the Queen and Warrioress.
I now feel it’s time to put myself first which even now is quite difficult to say. Anna once told me that my children will follow in my steps as I did with my mum. I want more for my children so I need to show them what they can do and how they can do it.
How is life now?
Life is much improved now. I see situations through different eyes. I no longer feel guilty at saying no and I am learning to embrace enjoying time for me. I feel as though I have been lifted out of a giant chasm, the walls are no longer closing in on me and I have a new and refreshed view of what my life is going to look like.
What would you say to someone thinking of doing this programme?
I would strongly recommend this programme to anyone who is flailing around and needs support to focus on getting things back together. I can see that this programme would work for anyone as the principles and power types are within us all. Anna is very organic, she plants seeds, lets them grow and then responds to what she gets. I began the process as I was exasperated with my daughter and felt that it was all my fault. I ended the process knowing that my daughter's issues were not my fault.
Being a good mother doesn’t mean being at everyone’s beck and call but showing my children how to be the best that they can be. This means looking after yourself first, not last.
