"I'm having easier relationships with my difficult family members."

"Anna’s tools settle and organise my mind, so I access my best thinking, planning, responses and resources. I’m calmer overall, having easier relationships with my difficult family members, better outcomes at work and with coworkers and enjoying my friends more. I’m less people-pleasing, but ironically more people are pleased with me."

Anna Runkle

Hi it's me, the Crappy Childhood Fairy. As you may know from my blog and YouTube channel, I'm not a doctor or therapist. I’m just someone who grew up affected by Childhood PTSD and the brain dysregulation that so often goes with it. For 25 years I’ve been teaching people my practical techniques and principles that anyone can use, whether or not they have access to professional help.
