What my clients say

There’s no better evidence than other people’s experience.

It’s hard to put into words, just how much my sessions with Anne have helped me. When we first started speaking in November, I was at rock bottom and my fertility journey had taken over every aspect of my life and happiness. As soon as I began Freedom Fertility Coaching, everything changed - I am happier, stronger, more calm, positive and far more able to face the journey ahead. Despite living 172 miles away, it felt like no distance at all and our FaceTime/ conference call meetings were a real lifeline. It was as if I was transported from my London apartment to Anne’s practice in York, with all the comforts of being cuddled up at home during these private sessions. Not only is Anne a wonderful coach and wise counsel, she gave me tools that have empowered me to help myself in my darkest moments - tools that are not only helpful for my fertility journey, but life in general. In February, just three months later, I am a different - far happier and more solid - person. I am immensely grateful and could not recommend Anne and Freedom Fertility Coaching enough. It is, hands down, the most helpful and positive thing I have done as I try to conceive - and I’ve tried everything! Thank you, thank you, thank you Anne.
Anne treated me throughout the winter and spring for chronic migraine with acupuncture which worked brilliantly for me. She's also a fertility, pregnancy and birth specialist who sees great results from acupuncture and hypnobirthing and has been a great support to me emotionally and physically.
I had 4 sessions of acupuncture with Anne and cannot recommend highly enough. I had zero expectations of any help but decided to try acupuncture due to perimenapause symptoms- hot flushes and a chaotic cycle. After the first treatment I noticed a reduction in hotness and after all four treatments my cycle was back to a 4 weekly pattern which helped me manage my expectations e.g not drinking alcohol when my period was happening. The effects have lasted and I feel much better 6 months later, not least because I managed to find help without using hormone treatments. Anne is really professional and calm and confident in the treatments she offers. Her lengthy experience as a nurse is really reassuring, and her Christian faith is clear through all the healing she offers.
I went to Anne because I had long standing pain in both my knees which was impacting on my day to day living. Anne treated me with acupuncture and over a period of four weeks she managed to get me almost pain free! My sleeping has improved and I can enjoy walking the dogs again. I would not hesitate to recommend Anne, she is kind, professional, caring and goes above and beyond to help find the right combination of treatments. Nothing is too much trouble and you will leave feeling that you have had the best care possible!
