      Beautiful healing sister

    I would like to thank Vanessa for her sisterly care and love over the years. I could write many wonderful things about Vanessa, her guidance and support has been extensive. The most inspiring gift that Vanessa has shared with me is her ability to see me, the real me, even If I could not. She moved and shook me to then discover some of the depths of my gifts and the ways in which I can share them. There is something so healing and powerful when someone truly sees another in their purest form and invites them to see it also. She is gentle yet powerful in this way. She has very practical tools to share and has a wealth of knowledge that is understandable and easy to use, especially when it comes to voice yoga. She has helped me develop my voice and my ability to sing from the heart. She endeavours to bring out the inner guru within you and learn how to find your true essence. Vanessa is a gift of authenticity she clearly is divinely guided and sees the world through the eyes of her heart. Bless you darling, bless your journey, bless your heart and bless all those who walk alongside you. Thank you for bringing high vibrations xx
