I was introduced to yoga and sattvic living 26 years ago. Dr Valerie left an indelible influence on my life. I have learnt the art of positive living and celebrating life daily. She had an uncanny ability to gather people around her with her charistmatic presence. She was generous with her time and knowledge and helped people with get remedies for various illnesses. I have enjoyed learning Reiki, Yoga, nutritional cooking, naturopahty and meditation to name a few.
Valerie, despite her long working days, found time to conduct collection drives of clothes and articles to distribute to Mother Theresa and other ashrams. She also partied and loved singing. She was a picture of gratitude and cheerfulness and I wish her all the very best to succeed in her ventures in Australia and globally.
“I was doing my Diploma for Mental Health when I met Valerie. My family thought I was insane signing up for studies after leaving my husband, I wasn’t sure if I was insane or just needing something that would stop me going insane.
What I didn’t realise was that brave, or insane decision to sign up for studies, would be the biggest blessing in disguise, because I met Valerie, warm
friendly, easy to be around woman who is naturally great at helping people. During our studies, we did case studies – but we used our own cases as our case studies. My life was like a triain wreck, however, Valerie helped guide me on that journey in such a beautiful and powerful way, that I feel stronger, empowered and ready to take on life once again.
Valerie even helped me decide whether to take on a job, looking at my personal circumstances and if I could juggle my special needs child, with work. What I would get out of working for myself, and also what my son would benefit from me working.
Working with Valerie doesn’t feel like work. It’s not uncomfortable, it’s not awkward, yes, sometimes looking at our life can be challenging, however, having someone as professional and as experienced as Valerie on that journey with you, makes taking those steps, so much easier. Valerie’s background is incredible, what she crams into those waking hours is staggering, what she’s achieved in her life amazing. What she gives back to the community – POWERFUL!
I needed Valerie to help me go through GRIEF, to really let go, and feel the grief of separation, of an identity lost, of a marriage lost, of a family lost, and of a career path lost. But most of all, grieving over finances, a marriage that was never going to be, what I wanted my marriage to be.
I’ve had many counsellors in my life, some good, some just listen, some well, not quite what I needed, and some that didn’t mesh with my personality. Valerie is different. Yes, you are the one on the journey, however Valerie, has her own set of skills to assist you along the way. What is right for you, what she intuitively, believes is the right therapy for you, what will be that POWERBALL ticket for YOU!
That is what makes Valerie different. She gets it. She knows what she is doing, she will choose a therapy that targets just what you need. I’ve never met anyone like Valerie, Valerie is unique. What I can say about Valerie, is she is DEDICATED, beyond a reasonable doubt, I have seen this dedication. Once Valerie has decided to dedicate herself to something, or someone, she will stand by her decision.
I for one, am so grateful to have met Valerie and have her step into my life when she did. It was a true blessing. One, I will be eternally grateful for, because it was a very difficult time in my life. Am I still struggling, sure, however, I no longer feel as crippled, or as lost! I have a direction. I have faith, and I have hope. I have found motivation, and I will bounce back. More powerfully, more enthusiastically and with resilience. I hope you find the power within you, to bounce back.”
I met Valerie in 2019, when studying Mental health. My first impression of her was that she was very kind, empathetic, respectful and spiritual lady with a lifetime of experience and education under her belt. Valerie helped me to be the best version of myself. One occasion stands out for me. I had a huge dilemma and what I did a counselling session with Valerie. She conducted a fabulous technique called Voice Dialogue, which I have not seen anyone conduct yet . I was amazed that within just a few minutes, I made a life changing decision, my dilemma was gone and I was amazed with the outcome gotten in a few minutes. Valerie stands out as a very ethical, supportive and wise person with these wonderful techniques and you will benefit largely from her assessment of your core issues and solutions that guide you lifelong. Valerie is a person you will guide you along your path of self healing and happiness . The light that emits from her is of love and wisdom.
