Before I came to see you I was feeling extraordinarily negative and anxious without being able to work out what was wrong. I was overwhelmed and not coping well at work even though I had been doing this job for several years and it was something I love. I couldn’t seem to find any positives in life and I felt like I was just existing. For someone who is normally in control, feeling so out of control and not knowing how to fix it was hard. I felt I should have been able to deal this on my own, but couldn’t. From the first session, I felt comfortable with you and I could open up. You asked the right questions which were helpful for me to explain to myself what was happening. So much of what you teach comes from your experiences so you know the tools work.

One of my biggest learnings was to be kind to myself and to recognise that the overwhelming emotions are not necessarily mine, just a result of past events. Now I choose to acknowledge them, use one of the tools you gave me and let them go. I feel like I have taken control back of my life again and can now move forward. It’s been a fabulous experience. Thank you so much I am very grateful. If you are feeling stuck make sure you find someone to help you like Mandy who will help you get to the root of the problem, recognise and release it and equip you with tools so you can move forward again in life.

Remember, anxiety doesn’t go away on its own. Allison

Before I worked with Mandy I suffered from occasional panic attacks as well as general anxiety that at times overwhelmed me. This was stopping me from adapting to life’s twists and turns and reaching my full potential at work and in life. 9 years ago I went to my local GP asking for help. He prescribed anti-depression meds, Paxil, and later cognitive behavioural therapy which I did for about 1 year and then gave up because it was not making any big difference. 3 years ago I then attended a full day intensive workshop for panic attack sufferers run by a psychologist who specialised in anxiety. I learnt a lot about myself and about anxiety however still didn’t feel like I had control over the anxiety at that stage. After working with Mandy I finally now feel a lot calmer and organised and in control when intense or overwhelming situations. I have also become a lot more self-aware in terms of my own limiting thoughts and emotions. As a result, I suffer fewer panic attacks, in fact, I can’t remember when I last had one and now feel that if I were to have one I will be able to control it. I am more confident at work and have more time to focus on important things like spending time with family and friends. I feel Mandy has been able to finally unlock that part of me that has been closed up for many reasons. Now I can focus on living a happy and fulfilled life. I would highly recommend Mandy because she is empathetic and truly passionate about helping people reach their full potential. I enjoyed each session and found the home play interesting. I have learnt so much from her and am proud of what she has helped me achieve. Thank you, Mandy!

When my girlfriend told me she had gone to Mandy 5 years ago to give up smoking and hadn’t touched a cigarette since I couldn’t wait to get Mandy’s details. I was going through a very hard time, depressed and struggling to cope. I often wondered if life was worth living. I was smoking 20 plus cigarettes a day, drinking heavily at night and then trying to look after my 2 boys and my sick mum. I needed help to change my habits to cope and to build my self-confidence so I could focus on a future.

When I met Mandy she provided such a safe nurturing place, she was compassionate and understanding, I felt at ease. This was something that I desperately needed while things were so hard in my life. I felt a great sense of relief, I knew Mandy could help me and my journey had started.

During the first few sessions, Mandy concentrated firstly on building my confidence and self-worth. I learnt that hating myself was ruining my life and alienating me from those who loved me. I was so grateful to have had an empathetic and educated person helping me to better understand my thoughts and feelings.

After only a couple of sessions, I started to feel better as though some weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Mandy then concentrated on building a future focus for me. This seemed quite impossible to me. Ten years ago I had a future mapped out and clear goals established but I lost all that when my husband died, so now it seemed quite daunting. Did I really have to think about the future and set goals! For so long I just put this into the too hard basket.

Mandy was so patient, supportive and encouraging. After a few attempts, I was able to write one page about how I would like to see myself in 12 months time if all the goals I set for the year had been achieved. I wrote about being a non-smoker, being in the right emotional space to meet my future partner, being fit. Totally ambitious and unattainable I thought.

Mandy set about providing the methodologies and tools she thought I required to try and achieve these goals, I didn’t want to feel unhappy anymore, I wanted to change. So without any pressure, Mandy suggested we pick a date in the future when it would be a good time to try and stop smoking. I felt sceptical, worried and nervous about whether I could do it, and even a bit scared of how Mandy went about achieving this.

The journey leading up to this date was fulfilling, rewarding and encouraging, Mandy worked on my self-esteem, confidence, my thoughts and feelings and coping mechanism.

This date came and went and now its 6 months later and I still haven’t had a cigarette, I can’t even imagine picking up a smoke now and going back to the person and lifestyle I had before.

There are no words to express my gratitude to Mandy. My life has changed incredibly, I no longer spend hours smoking and drinking on my deck, I no longer carry around the self-hate. My days are fulfilling, I have the energy and motivation to get things done, enjoy sport and I look better. My skin is glowing and my inner happiness shines through. I still have bad days like everyone but I accept these as part of life. Mandy has taught me a wealth of information to help me better cope and to be the best person I can be…ultimately to be happy.

Thank you, Mandy, for helping me in so many ways. (If you would like to talk to me or ask me any questions, I am happy to do so. I honour my privacy being a private person, so please contact Mandy who will connect you with me!)

Before I started coaching with Mandy I was feeling stuck. I felt somewhat lost with no direction or purpose in life. I definitely didn’t feel in control of my life and I had been struggling with doing what needs to be done. So I decided to stop procrastinating and do something about it. I have been able to see why I have been functioning the way I have. The biggest changes I have noticed are:- I can stand up for myself more; I have a better respect for myself; my procrastination has subsided and I am now a better action taker; I have made great progress with many of my goals; I have more confidence in myself and I like myself even more as a person. I am now kinder to myself and can see things from a new perspective. With Mandy’s help and along with her methodologies, tools and techniques, plus a sprinkling of hard work and practice, I really do want to become the best version of myself possible. I am looking forward to the next twelve months; to challenge myself, stretch, grow and even get a bit uncomfortable, as change doesn’t happen in our comfort zone! I am confident with Mandy’s assistance, coaching and support that I will achieve all of this.

I began seeing Mandy after an adrenal test with Kaizen Health Diagnostics revealed that I was in stage three of adrenal fatigue. We felt that I needed a new way to deal with stress. I was also returning to running after a long-term injury, and applying for graduate school in the USA, so it was optimal timing to make some changes. And changes I made! What makes Mandy so good is that she is able to help you make changes that will stick with you for life. Mandy’s Mindset for Success Coaching has helped me: reduce my procrastination and other negative perfectionistic traits; taught me techniques to create useful habits which have stuck; taught me meditation in a manner that has been truly effective; helped me understand why I think and behave how I do, which has helped me optimise my behaviours; reduced a lot of negative self-talk; helped to create stress-management techniques; increased my self-esteem and sense of self-worth; taught me to believe in who I am as a person; given me mindset tools to look after my emotional health as I enter a master’s degree to become a genetic counsellor; helped me come back from injury with an optimal mindset. She helped me set an intention to do the race for fun, not to get wrapped up in the result, and not to worry about anyone else in it. That race was one of the most liberating experiences I have had in a long time- and I came second! For the first time in my life, I am running each day by how I feel and without a prescribed schedule. I never fully appreciated the stress that it also contributed to my life.  To be able to train again pain-free, for pure enjoyment and genuine stress relief has given me freedom and hope for the future. I am excited to continue to build on my physical and mental training and to see what the future with my new mindset has to offer. And for that, I have Mandy Napier to thank!

I am so grateful for all you have done for me Mandy. You help me change my world around to the authentic me again. I know I wouldn’t have got to the place where I’m at now if I hadn’t had your stewardship, your patience and the total commitment to helping me create a better space for myself.  I can honestly say I feel blessed.
I feel happy within myself and really appreciate what a wonderful life I have.  Amanda

Prior to this course, I was experiencing a loss of identity because loss of contact with people and also very little commercial activity. This resulted in a lack of confidence and self-belief in my abilities. Mandy’s course showed the HOW TO, to get out of this predicament and refocus on many levels which certainly brought me back to past, very effective and more fulfilling times.
