Who Is The Coaching Program For?

The Eight-Week Intensive is open to men and women of all ages, who are fluent in English (anywhere in the world).

  • You know you were (and are) affected by abuse and/or neglect in your childhood, and you want to get free

  • You yearn to have closer relationships, less fear, more confidence, less anger, and more ease overall

  • You're ready to see and work on your own triggers, and learn to calm them

  • Though your CPTSD symptoms flare sometimes, you're in a place where you can be in a group with others, and maintain courtesy and kindness

  • You would value the help of a supportive mentor to help you take positive steps toward the life you want


Here's what other Coaching Intensive participants say about the program

  • I just completed the 8-Week Coaching Intensive and loved it. CPTSD is a part of my life I'm unable to talk about with friends, and years of therapy hasn't got me far in my healing. Being part of a small group of like-minded souls who are struggling with the same issues, and being coached by Anna, was an honour. The intimate group allowed a lot of sharing, listening, laughing and crying in a very safe space. The individual and group coaching was invaluable to me. I feel like I can move forward a bit more safely and happily armed with more conviction to do the work required in my healing. I highly recommend this course. Diane W., Toronto, CAN

  • I signed up for the 8-Week Coaching Intensive as soon I came across it. I felt I couldn't afford NOT to -- and I was right. In eight short weeks, I made more progress than I had in the preceding 25 years. The Coaching Intensive was a safe and intimate group. Simply, I gained a good practical understanding of different facets of CPTSD and the awareness and tools to overcome it. My life feels forever changed and I am finally tasting freedom. Jay B. London, UK

  • This course has done more to heal my symptoms of childhood PTSD than years of various other treatments. Over 8 weeks I learned how to calm my triggers, reduce self-defeating behaviors and ultimately focus on my strengths and gifts. I feel calmer, happier and more capable to advance my life in the direction of my dreams. I highly recommend this course! Caroline S., North Carolina, USA

  • The 8 week Coaching Intensive not only gave me excellent tools to begin and maintain calming my symptoms, [these are] tools that actually work! Working together in a group (something I was initially apprehensive about) brought something even more special to the process through sharing each others’ reflective experiences within such a safe, caring and loving environment was something quite magical.” T. Dean, Netherlands

  • One of the best decision I made (on a whim!) was to join the Coaching Intensive. I had only seen a few of Anna's video's but knew right away that it hit a chord. To say I have had a wonderful experience would be an understatement. I am so glad I made the decision to join. My awareness of my own CPSTD symptoms has grown and I feel that I will walk away with tools that will really help me deal with my dysregulation, isolation tendencies, and self-defeating behaviors moving forward.” Margaret M., NJ, USA

What Clients Are Saying About Coaching with Cara:

"Cara brings truly potent insights into the ways our fears and resentments can cloud our thinking w/ CPTSD and create harm for ourselves. I've been reading my DP to her and she is also supporting the coaching intensive I'm in. The space she holds feels nurturing and I feel her deep acceptance for whatever I'm experiencing. She walked this road herself learning to manage CPTSD successfully and demonstrates the power of the tools Anna shares. Cara's delightful sense of humor also helps lighten the heaviness and lifts any shame that might accompany explorations of fears and resentments. Working with Cara has been a HUGE help on my journey and I'm so grateful for her support."

Lilah,  CA, USA

"I have been working with Cara for a year, and am so grateful to have her support and compassionate understanding. She has helped me to understand CPTSD and how best to use Anna’s tools to find inner calm and peace. Cara is open and understanding. I so appreciate her support and care. I love her dearly."

Kamala McIver, MD, USA

"Cara is a down to earth coach that has been able to help me pivot my approach and thinking around healing, so that I can truly reap the benefits of Anna’s program and philosophy. She is a good listener, points out areas where I may not be seeing things fully, and shares her experiences and feedback in a way that is relevant and meaningful to what we are discussing. She has a lot of experience with this practice and obviously with coaching people. If you're thinking of taking a coaching course with Cara, do it! I am sure you will gain a lot from it."

What Clients Are Saying About Coaching with Jenny:

“Jenny has been a phenomenal coach throughout this 8 week experience, guiding us through the ups and downs usual in this type of journey. She is a great listener and knows how to pull out what you need to see with kindness. She knows when to challenge you and when to let things be. Her presence is very supportive and my one on ones with her have been invaluable. She has been a calming presence for us all and shared her personal path when necessary. It’s always great to know we’re not alone in this.”

Sussy, Denver, CO

“This program was a wake up call for me that was made so much easier by the support and encouragement I got from my peers and Jenny. I appreciated the videos, homework lessons and the structure of the group but  it wouldn't have been the same without our fearless leader Jenny. It was evident from day one she was knowledgeable, compassionate and invested in the group's experience. I have greatly benefited from the private coaching sessions with her. She helped me see myself differently. She validated my growth and desire to change while always giving thoughtful feedback both individually and in the group." 

Margaret M., NJ

“The Coaching Intensive has helped me to fathom the impacts of CPTSD on myself and others, and offers approaches to ease and dislodge fearful emotions in a supportive space. Jenny’s encouragement and coaching has guided me to value the practice of measuring and celebrating any action I take toward my goals.”

Rosemarie, Ottawa, Canada

“Jenny’s gentle course corrections, devotion and attention to each person in the group helped reassure and inspire me. The one-on-one sessions with here have been pivotal to my healing. I hope she understands how truly grateful I am to her for that kind advice.”

T. Dean, Netherlands
