For more than 30 years, I had been doing courses and education in personal development, energy work, and coaching. What more could Nicola have to offer me?
After experiencing another bad panic attack where my fears took over, I knew it was time to do something about it. “Coincidentally” I saw a message from Nicola on Facebook about an offer for an intensive program “Success without Anxiety”. I felt a deep longing: “How would it be like, to not be at the mercy of my fears and panic but instead to feel the wheel back into my own hands?” I realized that I had felt unsafe since birth and have been suffering from excessive fears for more than 60 years.
During the intake interview with Nicola, I got the feeling that she was the right person to help me. She asked the right questions and she answered my questions and above all intuitively. As an intuitive and (highly) sensitive person, that appealed to me. She also assured me that after going through this program, I would be on my way with what is my greatest desire: writing my book.
I felt a big yes to the program, but I also felt it was a lot of money. Did I want to spend so much money on something that I felt I could never get rid of? For more than 30 years, I have been doing courses and education in personal development, energy work, and coaching. What more could she have to offer me?
The fact that I said yes to this program has mainly to do with the skill I felt in Nicola, to guide me into dealing with my fears. I felt her complete acceptance of who I am and how I have done it in my life. I experienced her lack of judgment against my own harsh judgments of myself, as extremely healing.
It was not an easy process. I’ve struggled and looked deeply into my fears. And that was often very intense. I have felt my fear, my desperation, my panic, my anger, and from there I managed to feel the love for my fearful, angry little girl again. So that as an adult I gained access to my strength and self-direction again. The moment when I could really feel that I have the right to self-determination was a big breakthrough. I realized that no matter how much fear I feel, I can decide whether to stay in it or get out.
I’ve learned to be more gentle with myself. To shine light onto that what I condemn in myself and to gently learn to love it. To understand where my fears come from and understand that I did it the way I did it. Now I get that life is an up and down movement and therefore sometimes difficult and that I have the power and the strength to deal with it.
I slowly started to write as well, with so much effort at first. But slowly the pleasure began to come, the ease. The form in which I wanted to write became clear to me. Now I still don’t write every day but I write! And I enjoy it so much. There is no longer any doubt in me that the book I have in mind is coming!
Do I now no longer experience fear and panic? No, that is not so. I can still feel fear and even panic about some things in my life. And I feel my internal survival strategies taking over and fear grabs me by the throat, panic is lurking. But I have learned to deal with that. I now understand where it comes from and feel gentleness towards the fear. So that I gradually become calmer again. Sometimes I am amazed that something I would get into a panic about before and fall into judgment about myself, I can now deal with very calmly.
I feel stronger, more grounded in the earth. I am better at following my desire and I recognize my inner saboteur. I have learned to speak up, to be clear, and say NO. And especially to say YES to life.
I am grateful to Nicola for her boundless dedication to my healing process. Her serenity and voice have a healing effect. She is a star in personal guidance, intuitive and encouraging. She took me step by step to more inner healing. I felt like there was always support for me, no matter how difficult it was.
Now in retrospect, I can say that this program has been worth every penny I paid for it. This was the best investment I could give to myself.
The program is of high quality, well thought-out, round. It has brought me myself.
Michelle’s incredible story.
I did not have complete confidence that it would work. That almost prevented me from saying yes to the Success Without Anxiety program.
I was ashamed to make the investment. I was ashamed of my fears. Is such an amount of money necessary to get rid of it? I thought other people would not understand.
With that kind of money, I could buy a car. Then I would have driven my own car but I was still not the one behind the wheel in my life. I myself really didn’t have a driver yet.
I definitely recommend Success Without Anxiety.
Then you are rid of your worries.
The program is of high quality, well-thought-out, round.
It has brought me myself.
Before, I was the ball. Now I am no longer the ball that is thrown. I now hold the ball and decide whether or not to throw it. And if so, in which direction.
Nicola mirrored me. She goes along down the way to bring light to what is beneath the surface. Like a hostess in my own psyche. She held the door open when I didn’t feel like looking around there. She remained present when I wanted to leave.
I’m specifically grateful to Nicola for her dedication, really going for it 100%. To send me healing remotely on a daily basis all those weeks. She also really focuses on the person completely. She has been an example in everything.
My fears crumbled. And they will never continue to build.
In terms of fear of failure, it is no longer an issue.
I now do appreciate myself. That is now anchored in me.
I have come to believe in myself a lot more and no longer have to pretend that I am someone.
I experience people sharing in a different way. Social anxiety is over. The buffer or filter that I always used in social interaction is no longer necessary. I can now let people be themselves without it affecting me.
I have had a lot of insights about how I view womanhood. Like I didn’t want to be like my mother, I saw that as a weakness. I can experience being a woman as I want. Now I love that I choose to be a woman and that feels so good. I’m not ever going to be afraid of being a woman again.
Now a few weeks later it continues to work, I am even more satisfied than right after graduating from the program.
Something always loomed above me. There were always doom scenarios and disaster thoughts, I was so worried.
At first, I didn’t know I suffered from Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). I could really worry about anything. For me that was normal. I thought that was who I am.
Something always loomed above me. There were always doom scenarios and disaster thoughts, I was so worried. There was always a lot of turmoil. And fear was always there. For years I participated in many personal development courses, but I did not get over it.
I now no longer feel that constant unrest.And that noise. There is no more noise. And I am no longer busy all the time.
Not only did I suffer from GAD, I also suffered from Anxiety for Men. I used to freeze when talking with men for no apparent reason, I experienced real fears of death. In my old system, men were dangerous. I could not have a job interview. Now I am free to act and be with men. And guess what: I did get the job I desired.
I am so thankful I made a huge reversal. Life is so different after the program.
I felt comfortable in all my being with all my negative feelings, which is rare.
Nicola helped me by being her loving self. I felt comfortable in all my being with all my negative feelings, which is rare. Before there would be shame or hiding my emotions.
Through her guidance, I could go to my fear and grieve, and feel it through.
Without her mentoring me, anxiety would still be part of my life. I recommend her for sure!”
I would panic because I thought he would leave me
I have a great new boyfriend and there it is again: after a fight or argument, I am panicking because I think he will leave me. I had therapy for 3 years, but it seems to have helped little.
In the one-on-one session with Nicola last week there was a moment that I really felt incredibly comfortable, without ANY tension and that was unprecedented, very different from how I usually feel – which is very tense. The whole week I slept well and had no panic attacks and I was able to give my sorrow a lot of space. I feel really good, more balanced, and am hopefull that my fears will be gone soon.
Due to a fall on the street, I became very nervous and scared
Due to a fall on the street and the subsequent rehabilitation, I became very nervous and scared. Nicola helped me and now I feel stronger. Within weeks the fear is almost gone, and I am able to make decisions. Every week now I make a decision that I have long postponed to make, this makes my life so vibrant.
I lived, but experienced being locked up in a glass sphere
When I began working with Nicola, I was completely lost. I lived, but experienced being locked up in a glass sphere, and looked at myself from a glass sphere. Huge fears had gripped me since I had been experimenting with hash.
Fear and delusions repeated themselves and I was constantly afraid that something very scary would happen. Thanks to Nicola there was a lot of improvement very quickly. Now in already a few weeks, so much is gone, I am becoming normal again.
I am grateful that Nicola has talked to me about what she offers. It helped me tremendously.
