It was amazing to me, how Christie´s approach and questions helped to bring incredible awareness and freedom to things I´ve carry throughout my life and attached so many beliefs to. I´m far more open to change the things that have governed my bad decisions and beliefs, and am becoming more and more aware of who I really am. Christie and her counselling have both added such a big impact to my life, and how I hope to continue to grow from her incredible teachings of who I am.

My health has been a big concern over the last 5 years or so; nothing life threatening but a gradual and steady decrease in joy and quality of life. These health issues were starting to negatively affect my emotional state, restrict activities and decrease my enjoyment of life. As I work with Christie I find that I am becoming more and more connected to myself and the world around me. My health issues have improved immensely, the IBS is 99% gone and my days are filled with joy. I used to feel awful with fleeting moments of joy now I feel joyful with moments of challenge that, if I follow the process, are readily dealt with.

Christie´s main message and most challenging request of me was to face myself without the stories. Simple I know, but without a guide to push and support, it is often a challenge too big to face alone. Most people seek a counsellor because there is no one in their life to talk to; really talk to. Christie has helped me talk with myself and discover my worth without the stories. The flight is now the soaring of spirit and potential. Thank you Christie for the guidance to being open!

My life experience has led me down a path full of challenge, self doubt and discovery. Along my journey, I have benefited from the teachings from a number of counselors, but couldn´t help but feel there was always something missing. I could never clearly articulate what that meant, but I´ve had this inescapable sense there was a deeper meaning, some completely different understanding, that I was blind to.
Serendipity led me to Christie Dakin. The first time we met, I knew my life would change. Understanding how my life would change had yet to crystallize but Christie brought a new and exciting approach that was leading to sustainable change.
If life is a mountain climb, Christie is my Sherpa. Today, as I continue on life´s adventure Christie continues to lead me from one break-though to another, challenging learned wisdom, offering a new safer path - all the while letting me find my way.
The sun rises in the east, it sets in the west - the rigors and chaos of everyday life haven´t changed. The people in my life haven´t changed. I´ve changed and I´ve changed for a lifetime.
Christie, I will be forever grateful our paths crossed.
