Personal Life Change Testimonial

I am pleased to receive and share a testimonial from a caregiver of partner diagnosed with Parkinson’s.

“I am the caretaker of my husband who is recovering from Parkinson’s Disease.  When I first took him to see Renee last March, his muscles were very tight and constricted making it difficult for him to get in and out of our vehicle.  I also had difficulty getting him in and out of his bed.  He also had a fear based mind, and was living in survival mode.  After six months of treatments, one treatment a week, he is now more flexible and living more freely, not always in survival mode.  Although he still lives in fear, he has improved to a place where he has more self-confidence and love for himself.  I am very grateful for Renee and her Feldenkrais treatments as it has given us the opportunity to travel more freely.  It has also made my work at home easier with his shower and assisting him in and out of bed.”  BL

Personal ​Life Change Coaching Testimonial

I am pleased to receive a testimonial from a life coaching student who has made tremendous personal progress with the loss of a long marriage.

This has been the most challenging period in my life, losing my entire local family, and I do appreciate all the extra time and energy you have given me in order to help me move through what is every woman’s nightmare – the loss of a long-term marriage; but coming out of it, thanks to your support, with my integrity still intact and perhaps improved?  Your setting challenges for me as I have progressed have been “challenging” to say the least and I still do not know the outcome of how I will be faring, but I am still here, still alive and although not “happy”, am getting through my days and despite physical and emotional problems and my ongoing anxiety, have moved from being completely dependent on a person (my ex-husband) to relying on getting things done myself or finding at least some of the help I need, without him.

​Y​ou have inspired me to keep on living when I felt all hope was lost.  I am afraid that I will not live up to the task of continuing this, but I am learning more about self-soothing, which I still find very difficult.

Everyone who knows me sees a great improvement in how I handle difficult situations with more grace and efficiency.  People in some of the grocery stores I go to comment on how much better I am looking and happier as well.

Like everyone I have days that are worse than others, but I never thought I would get this far.  You have encouraged me to be my own parent and although I find this challenging, I find I am handling certain situations I never dreamed I would have to handle or be able to handle.

I know I would never have lived through this process of divorce for this long without your help and your confidence in my abilities to cope.

When I first met you, I was not able to function on my own in any capacity, and now I am spending most of my time taking care of the business of life, home-ownership, and self-care with my physical and emotional challenges….and with no support from family.  You have seen me through a period in my life I never thought I would survive.
