I Believe

When you don't know what's unique and lovable about you, your relationships are going to be way harder work than you'd like them to be.  Fortunately, NOW is always a great time to transform the situation.

About Annie Kaszina

I’m a woman who had to reinvent herself in mid-life.  Like a lot of women, I’d been through a lot of tough stuff, including bad relationships, ‘Hopium addiction’, frantic people-pleasing, family break-down and more besides.

On the surface of it, I had it all: the stable marriage, the high status partner, the lovely offspring, the nice home.  In reality, it was all terribly hollow.  I’d forgotten who I was, and my relationship was an empty shell.   I hungered for  meaning, and fulfilment.   I just needed to find the confidence to put myself out there and show the world - and myself - who I really was.

I've always had a passion for learning and the desire to be the best that I possibly can be for my wonderful clients. So along my journey to wholeness and happiness, I've collected various qualifications including a PhD, NLP Master Practitioner, and a Coaching Diploma. There've been several books including “Do You Choose Your Dog More Carefully Than Your Husband”, a former relationship zero’s guide to avoiding the Jerks, Creeps and Players and Finding A Loving Long-Term Partner.  ..

These days, I’m an international speaker, women’s relationship expert, and author of over a dozen books and audio programs, including: “Married to Mr Nasty”, “Do You Chose Your Dog More Carefully Than Your Husband?”,  “How to Create More Happiness, Starting Now”, and “How to Recover From Emotional Abuse in 8 weeks or Less”.

I feel blessed to  have a great life I would never have imagined possible in a wonderful, historic city  with my beloved partner, our delightful dog, and good friends.

How Charlotte Became A Man Magnet

Women seeking to start over in a relationship

Starting over with 3 kids under the age of 12 had never been in Charlotte's life plan. In fact, she'd never had a life plan. She married her childhood sweetheart before she was out of her teens and grew up fast, dedicating her life to her husband and children.more

Unfortunately, the marriage didn't work out, at all. Her husband was neglectful, unkind and rejecting. In the end, there was nothing for her to do but face facts and draw a line under her hopes and dreams - for herself and her kids.

When I met Charlotte she was at rock bottom: out of love, out of money, and out of hope. She didn't know where to turn. She wanted a life, but she didn't know where to start.  She kept asking: "Who's ever going to want someone like me, no education, no prospects, 3 kids, and an extra 40 lbs on board?" She desperately needed confidence, a direction, and self-belief. Life was very painful. Her soon-to-be ex-husband was playing mind games, her commuity judged her, even her mother wasn't terribly supportive. 

Charlotte didn't see the woman I saw.

Over the next few months Charlotte nad I worked on healing past hurts, getting her out of overwhelm, and getting her to start to see the gifted, delightful. strong woman I saw.

The acid test came when she went out to a bar where she would M-E-N. This was her first real evening out. She was going with a friend of hers who was absolutely stunning. Charlotte had a serious 'wobble': she started doubting herself, all over again, ahead of time. We spent the session before her night out working through the beliefs that fuelled her fears.

She showed up at our next session, with a huge, ear-to-ear smile. 3 men had taken her number. Nobody had taken that much interest in her beautful friend. The work we'd done had enabled Charlotte to show up as the irresistibly attractive woman she really was. It also enabled her to step back and say: "Are any of these guys the right guy for me?" 

Charlotte was back in control of her life, able to make great decisions about her and her children's future, and the kind of man and relationship she wanted. She said; "For now, I'm in hurry. I'm loving life. I don't feel I need a man. But I reckon I'll know when the right man comes along." That was enough for Charlotte.

 

Odette's Story

Women in complicated relationships

Odette spent over 12 years and more living with a husband who left her feeling ground down, useless, and lovable.  She wasn’t happy, but she stayed strong, and did the best she could for her 3 boys – until the day she met up with an old friend from high school.more

"That day," she told me, "was the darkest day of my life. I realized I didn't recognise the vibrant, gifted, strong girl my friend was talking about.  The girl he remembered didn't exist anymore. It was as if I had died." 

That day she went home, got on the Internet started researching emotional abuse, and discovered what had happened to her. She ended up at recoverfromemotionalabuse.com.  She spent hours reading the blog posts, then she bought "The Woman You Want to Be" and she started to feel better.  Then she signed up for "The Ultimate Emotional Abuse Recovery Program".

The first thing I knew about her was when she claimed her free session with me.  Often, women get on that call with a burning problem.  Odette was different.  All she kept saying was: "I'm so happy, Annie.  I'm just so happy. I can't believe it, I'm so happy."

Working through the program, Odette had reconnected with that strong, vibrant, gifted young  High Schooler.  She was standing up to her husband, and he was backing down. She'd stood up to a bullying manager at work – for the first time ever.  He left soon after. She was getting on better with her boys, and she'd found the passion to start her own business.  She'd started being good to herself.  Over a 2 month period everything had changed for Odette: she'd gone from telling herself that her life was over to feeling excited about getting out of bed in the morning.

Like most emotionally abused women, Odette had believed she could never truly get over what she'd been through, and she has amazed herself.
The damage caused by emotional abuse feels irreversible,  With the right help it really doesn't have to be.
