Appreciating Single Mothers.
Mother’s Day is a week from Sunday.
It’s a day when we honor one of the most important — if not the most important — people in our lives: our mothers.
We take them out for brunch, or dinner, or a walk around the neighborhood and remind them how much we love and treasure.

Yet, I know there are many mothers out there who, sadly, cannot.

- 85 percent used personal or sick days to care for a child.
- 80 percent reported challenges finding quality childcare.

We have been working soooooooo hard (as we love to do for you!) over the last few months putting all of this together and we’re so incredibly excited to share Thrive with you.
We have packed an enormous amount of value in this program and put it together in a way that will make this 10-week experience unbelievable…
You will shift the “unshiftable” …
Release the “unforgivable”, “unliveable” and “unsustainable”.
And leave your breakdowns behind in the dust to access your new and true REAL YOU breakthroughs!
I know you won’t recognise yourself once you’ve completed the Thrive Membership Program.
Whether you are currently at 2 out of 10, 6 out of 10 or even 9 out of 10 in achieving your Thriver Status in your healing journey, me and my wonderful team will support you, encourage and inspire you, and keep you on track to surge ahead as you progress through the workshops and healing exercises in this program.
I am a really strong believer in the power of group energy healing, and if you have participated in a workshop with me when we have hundreds of people all clearing out our dense trauma at the same time, you will know that the power and relief felt during these experiences is truly indescribable.
So what can you expect to get out of Thrive?
We designed the Thrive Membership Program to focus on the 6 key areas that we see universally result in successful recoveries.
Meaning when you learn how to do these things you become a Thriver!
So what are they?
#1 Freedom From Trauma: Release the residual trauma from the narcissistic relationship, including missing the narcissist or anything that is keeping you stuck and not moving forward.
#2 Healing Abuse Symptoms: Overcome abuse symptoms such as PTSD, fibromyalgia, agoraphobia, depression, etc. with targeted healing directly on your subconscious programs.
# 3 Become Narcissist Proof: Achieve a state where narcissists are no longer your reality – meaning you are repelled and impervious to them rather than susceptible to them.
#4 Attract Supporting & Loving Souls: Develop your relationship code so that you become a magnet for supportive, conscious and caring people – a far cry from narcissists!
#5 Become A Boundary Boss: Learn how to make boundary setting an integral part of your life – people will be asking you for tips on boundary setting!
#6 Smashing Self-Sabotage: Establish your Thriver Life and learn how to let go of unhealthy habits like junk food, smoking, drinking, procrastination and other self-avoiding and self-sabotaging habits or patterns much more easily.
Can you feel the evolution you will experience over 10-weeks if you decide to join Thrive?
I hope you feel it, as much as I know that it’s going to be amazing. 🙂
