This program is the place to start. It is the basics of all that you need to know when you are first understanding your self as highly sensitive. It supports you in changing your whole worldview and gets you ready to lead YOUR life. Big stuff. It is also included with the Sensitive Leadership program below.
This program teaches all about my theory of the Highly Sensitive Hierarchy of Needs that helps you understand why you operate inside out and upside down compared to the majority of the population. It is the next step after you are thriving in the world (use the sensitive + thriving basics program above as a first step). This program is when you are ready to start leading your whole life with sensitivity. I do, and this is where I show you how to do it too. Sensitive Leadership does include the sensitive + thriving basics program as well.
New opportunities and services will be announced as they become available, so make sure that you are on my mailing list.
WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING:
What problem were you facing that Ane’s services helped solve?
“I was having a hard time liking and understanding my sensitive body amidst my mental challenges with depression, anxiety and psychosis.”
“Anxiety. Difficulty making decisions. Obsessive self-destructive thoughts and self-image issues.”
“…despite multiple failures with other therapists, I still felt a deep yearning for exactly what Ane provides–just by being her GIANT COOL SELF!!!”
“Relationship addiction, issues at work, inability to speak for myself, not understanding why I wasn’t getting what I wanted in life, not being able to take care of myself.”
“I was feeling generally very frustrated and stuck in life, with a poor understanding of why, very little idea of how to feel better, and real difficulty communicating my feelings to the people I’m close to in my life. These were not particularly new problems, but they were persistent.”
“I was a newly discovered HSP when I found Ane. All I’d read was Elaine Aron’s book and I felt like I needed more. Luckily, I got that through the Basics program!”
Has working with Ane’s services made your life easier? How?
“Yes. I feel more accepting of my body which has changed my life in a lot of positive ways. Ane has given me the permission I needed (because I could not give it to myself) to move ahead with projects, to like what I’m doing, to get rid of the stuff that I don’t like doing. Also, she has shared her knowledge and wisdom on what it is like to be sensitive and this has allowed me to understand myself better.”
“I used to wake up every morning and feel like crap….wondering why I was so ‘dark on the inside’ when I am such a typically positive person. Now I wake up and hear Ane’s voice say, ‘You’re just right.’ It’s a radical, wonderful, miraculous shift in every way. When I get overwhelmed and exhausted or daunted during the day, now I can check-in with tenderness and say, ‘Hey little orchid, it’s okay….’ Instead of constantly striving to be someone and somehow different/better and like everyone else. I now acknowledge with real wisdom and reverence that this is just not, never has been, and never will be the way I THRIVE. And I embrace that my unique construction is truly a precious gift–but like a priceless Renaissance instrument, I can’t mistreat it.”
“Yes. I think our conversations and work together have redirected my focus at times and helped me to understand the sorts of choices I can make to feel more satisfied with my life. I find myself thinking about things in new and more comfortable ways.“
“Absolutely! I learned faster than I would have on my own and the recorded hypnosis tracks are something I still lean on now especially pre-bed. Very relaxing!”
“The biggest thing, I think, is that Ane’s helped me understand that there is no ‘best way’ to do things, or to be. I spent such a large chunk of my life thinking that others know something about how to live, some secret that I’m not in on. Ane’s helped me internalize this idea that there is no ‘right’ way of doing or being, that it’s ok to just do my best and figure it out as I go. Life also becomes easier when you accept responsibility for it. Through my work with Ane, life feels less like something that happens to me and more like something I create for myself. I can also use my awareness better. I can tell when my thoughts are playing tricks on me. I understand my body better and have a healthier relationship with it.”
“Yes. Working with Ane transformed my life.
Ane brought gifts to my life that I will forever be grateful for:
1 ) the art of extreme self-care:
2 ) the ability to get into my body and find out what I feel and allow myself to feel
3 ) in hypnosis: teaching me how to have an experience of whatever it is that I wanted by remembering something that I have experienced before or trying to imagine what it would feel like if I had something that I desire
4 ) help me understand that people in my environment dont have the ability to put a price tag on me. basically, not allowing my surroundings especially at work to validate who I am
5 ) that relationships are mirrors, learning how to let go, learning how to go for what i want, and that I can always change my mind
6 ) that I am enough just as I am right now, that I am safe, and deserve love, appreciation
7 ) when I am alone, its okay to be alone, and that its not going to be forever, I am alone today, this week, or this month…
8 ) establishing boundaries, not tolerating things that affect me in a negative way, protecting my sensitivity instead of allowing unnecessary exposure
9 ) teaching me about practical spirituality and busting myths about law of attraction
10 ) that all of this is part of my journey, and getting me where I need to go. being a mess, being lost, confused, misunderstood is just a phase and its the best one for me, its exactly what I need to experience right now.”
What do you like about the experience of working with Ane?
“Ane’s really patient. She has a great way of explaining things and she’s down for going deep with people.”
“Even when I go into a call without anything particular in mind, I feel like she’s able to pick up on threads and we end up discussing something that feels profound. I often find Ane giving me words for something I couldn’t express so succinctly before; there’s a definite sense of solid understanding that I don’t get with everyone. The whole process has proven itself to me time and time again.”
“I’ve been to other therapists before, and often, I left their office more depressed than when I came in. The whole session seemed to be me talking about what wasn’t working out in my life, to a level of detail and in such negative language that it kind of brought it to life again and made me think, ‘God, my life *does* suck’. And the responses were usually understanding but not empowering, because they would just acknowledge that I was dealt a crappy hand in life with a screwed up brain wiring that made me anxious and unhappy. They gave me anxiety/anti-depressant drugs sometimes, which were scary and not helpful. There was never any sense that the nervous system I was born with could be a good thing, it was always this handicap I had to learn to live with. Which I would guess is kind of the depressing message HSPs get a lot: life as coping. That’s sad! I like that I feel empowered after I see Ane, like I don’t have to be fixed, I just have to learn to use this other type of brain that I got.“
“She’s honest, fair, shares her own experiences, can be really funny, relies on her intuition and speaks from the heart. And she doesn’t place a lot of emphasis on past experience unless it is relevant today.”
“Absolutely EVERYTHING. Ane brings this magical, mystical wealth of ever-expanding knowledge and a sense of exciting discovery to every session, yet she is not the least bit judgmental with linear lectures or preconceived prescriptions….I sometimes feel as if we are absorbing art together and creating meaning in a delicate yet daring dance and my participation is celebrated and honored rather than measured and/or dissected with disapproval. I can finally honestly admit that being with other therapists was one of the most traumatic experiences of my journey–it was dark and dirty and downright depressing. Ane exposes light and more light to my life with all kinds of colors and facets to explore so that I don’t feel as if any angle is wrong or should/could be changed. There is a liberation in her presence that is pure joy.“
“I feel safe and understood with Ane.”
Were you pleasantly surprised by any part of your experience with Ane?
“That it’s often really practical. Finding out how to like yourself and understand yourself could become a really counter productive exercise if you tend to over analyzing things to begin with. But Ane tries to always bring you back to a concrete, tangible, goal, and helps you break it down into a to-do list that you can check back in on to assess your progress.”
“At the start, I wasn’t sure what to expect and I was presently surprised by the effectiveness of the hypnosis exercises over the phone.”
“I am surprised how I continue to learn something about myself from each of our sessions.”
“Oh gosh–I absolutely LOVE going to my sessions! I had no idea that ‘therapy’ could be so freeing and fun….When my students would describe how much they appreciated that I was not just their teacher but their friend, I would wonder if I could ever find a guide who would feel that way for me–and now I have….I am like a walking infomercial for Ane because (as one of my HSP friends says) she makes me feel ‘heart sparkles’ inside! I know that, through our journey together, I truly have someone who is 150% invested in supporting my genuine growth….Not what they think I should be or could be but what can happen only naturally and organically and through a divine dance of delight and discovery. I almost feel like Ane and I have a ‘secret language’ that I get to explore and express when we’re together…. I am more myself with Ane than anyone else on the planet right now. Wow.”
“Yes–everything. When I look back at my first day working with Ane to today, I could never picture that I would have come this far.“
“How much I learned. When she described HSPs as ‘giants’, I laughed. Already being 6’1″, I’m well aware of life as a physical giant, but had always tried to squeeze myself into this smaller world. I felt really inspired after that to stop trying as much.”
What did you find remarkable about Ane’s services?
“I feel more like I’m being taught or guided rather than ‘treated’, which I think is a remarkable difference from more mainstream services.”
“How open and available Ane is. Makes relating much easier!”
“The service I value the most is how Ane continues to mix her intuition with the practical. She will provide her sense on things and then offer practical exercises to help manage the problem that I feel are really valuable because she has tried them out herself. I can’t emphasize enough how valuable the practical exercises are. I also value that she is an HSP—this is important because right away you feel she can relate to you—this provides an immediate connection.”
“I am so glad that Ane shares her journey with me….I’ve never had a therapist/teacher/mentor who would openly reveal the parts of herself that connected so much with my own experiences….and I really need that. Yale University taught that personal stories are a pivotal part of developing Emotional Literacy, and this truth is being practiced in our sessions together, creating a Trust that lasers into more healing through shared emotions, experiences, impressions, struggles….I am so grateful to be ‘in it’ together and feel like we’re gardening the layers of my soul’s soil on both emotional/physical and metaphysical/mystical levels…“
“Ane is more than a therapist — she is a healer.”
“How much she ‘got’ what I was saying, and how much her words of wisdom affected me.”
What is the most important thing people should know about Ane’s services?
“Ane creates the potential for miracles.”
“This is a science that can truly help.”
“How easy they are. You can either actively participate or not, but either way, you’ll get a lot out of it (Basics Program).”
“If you are interested in changing your life, if you see the same patterns happening at work, relationships, friendships, within your body and you dont understand what it is or how to help yourself, then talk to Ane. I was so blessed to find her on the website, she had a very radiant picture of herself and that was a reason I contacted her. I also read a few reviews of people who found hypnosis very helpful and how their issues disappeared after a few sessions with Ane. I didn’t know what to expect from hypnosis, especially working with someone I didn’t know, and also admitting that I have an issue, wasn’t easy. All I knew was that I couldn’t live like I was anymore.”
“Working with someone in this way and talking about details of your life isn’t to be taken lightly. For someone on the fence, I would say that she’s trustworthy and if there’s a way she could help, she’ll find it.”
Would you recommend Ane’s services to your highly sensitive friends, family or co-workers? Why?
“Yes. I already have. My family and many of my friends have commented on how much I’ve changed–my ability to let things slide, good zen-like, life advice I give them, so I told them about Ane.”
“YES! When I like something, I LOVE it, and I talk about Ane’s awesome-ness with so much passion that one of my friends asked me if I was in love with her. I am falling in love with myself in a way never before even remotely possible as a result of our journey together.“
“Yes. Because she’s helped me immensely to understand myself better and to be okay with that and this is empowering to me. I really feel this is what a therapist is meant to do, and I’ve been through a few therapists!“
“I would. I’ve noticed positive changes for myself and I would recommend a struggling friend or family member to see if the same sort of support would help them too.”
“Yes, I already do. All the time! I’m the editor of a group for Highly Sensitive women on herfuture.com and love using her blog posts as jump off points for discussions there.”
What part of your experience with Ane makes you want to work with Ane again?
“After each call, I feel better than before it. At the same time, I notice larger, longer term changes for the better as well.”
“I feel like every time I’m with Ane, she helps to pull a thread out of the tapestry of my ‘kaleidoscope cosmos’ inside that I wanted and needed in order to play the music of my soul and now I can actually access it and feel this thread integrated into my essence so that I can play the notes of my life with a full symphony of meaning and magic–I had dreamed of this possibility in the heart of my hearts but never knew could really actually unfold…”
“She understands where I come from, and she shows me way back to myself when I get lost.”
“Ane’s great and really loves this work, it’s clear. She makes everything accessible and approachable. She sees HSP as holistic and a blessing and that’s what a lot of people, myself included, need.“
