An example of one client’s thoughts on Annette’s work:
“I began my health coaching journey with one goal in mind – to reduce my reliance on Over The Counter sleep aids. I had struggled to get a solid night of sleep for the past three years, starting with the third trimester of my pregnancy. The reality of a waking newborn and subsequent postpartum depression resulted in much anxiety and little sleep. Although my strong support group, faith in God, and Zoloft helped tremendously with the PPD, sleep troubles lingered…and lingered. I tried various doctor-prescribed and Google-prescribed treatments: trazadone, melatonin, sleep herbs (of a varied sort), chamomile tea, lavender soaks, etc. with only minor improvement. I was pretty desperate to feel rested after years of fatigue, so I was turning to OTC sleep aids several times a week. I knew this was not sustainable, so I did three things: cut the chaos of my schedule, started cognitive behavioral therapy, and signed up with a health coach. All three components were necessary. What I learned from my health coach was above and beyond my expectations. I learned about my body and how to work with it to reach my goals. My coach took a lot of time digging through the details of my lifestyle, diet, belief system, and emotional state before making some really critical suggestions. Among the most helpful (and ones that I will carry with me from now on) are: diaphragmatic breathing, meditation, realistic-goal mindset, a diet rich in healthy fat and protein, and the importance of joy and play. I felt heard and cared for every step of the way, and my life will be forever better because of my coach. I have not reached my goal 100% but I am much further down the road than before meeting my coach. And, now I have a confidence in my mind and body that I didn’t have before – what a gift!”
