Guest Info Show Notes
Anne Skinner is a life coach with over ten years of experience…. However before that, she was a stressed [unworthy] mother, manager and wife.
After her SECOND breast cancer diagnoses in five years .. the penny dropped. She was making herself ill, or at least in Anne’s words “allowing stress to comprise her immune system” to the point where she had little defence.
Anne recalls having on more than once occasion announcing out loud that she just ‘needed’ the world to stop turning so she could catch up. Well, she got what she asked for! A break from the pressure of work… AND from everything else in her life.
During Anne’s treatment, and I’m thrilled to say her subsequent recovery, she learned and successfully used a range of techniques that resulted in her having a calmer and more fulfilled life.
More than that though, she learned to fully accept and to love herself as she is, and today uses those same techniques to help others.
