SUCCESS STORIES

Danielle’s Story

“I think it’s important that I lay out just how bad because I know there will be people who simply can’t believe yet, that they will be able to be ‘normal’ ever again.

I had a complete nervous breakdown, the 3rd in my life, I couldn’t leave my room, I didn’t sleep at all for 3 weeks, I dropped down to 6st 11 (43kg) I couldn’t bath, wash or brush my teeth because I couldn’t be alone for that long. I couldn’t sit down so I paced around in a small circle for about 10 hours a day…My partner had to be with me 24 hours a day, giving up his whole life to take care of me & my two children.

Coming into the Little Peace of Mind program did something I’ve never experienced before. “

Here’s Danielle’s story.

Heidi’s Story

Heidi went from having an ordinary life to waking up one night sweating and anxious. This grew into huge moods swings, periods of anxiety and mania culminating in a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. She came to me for some private coaching, but it was a few weeks before she could find a date that would work for both of us so in the meantime she began the Little Peace of Mind 12 Week Program. There she heard something completely different and when she showed up to our first coaching call and told me: “I no longer consider myself to have a diagnosis of anxiety or bipolar.” What on earth happened in those few short weeks? I invited Heidi to create this podcast with me to share her story.

James’ Story

In this episode, James and I share his story. James’ anxiety was caused by the traffic noises outside his house. Or so he thought.

Then he saw that the thing that he thought was causing his anxiety wasn’t. This is the story of what happened after that life-changing insight….

Gemma’s Story

“I need my panic attacks to go and THEN I’ll be happy.”

“I need to be able to take my kids on holiday this year and THEN I’ll be happy.”

“I need to be able to stop washing my hands obsessively and THEN I’ll be happy.”

“I need my boyfriend to want to live with me and THEN I’ll be happy.”

“I need to be a stone lighter and THEN I’ll be happy.”

“I need a husband/kids/new house and THEN I’ll be happy.”

What if none of that was true?

Maryse’s Story

Maryse used to experience symptoms of dizziness and extreme early morning anxiety.

She would get better then fall back into her symptoms. Over and over again.

She shares how she believed herself to have triggers that had to be avoided and the one question she asked herself all the way through our program that makes her so very coachable!

Today she shares her doubts along the journey, the insights she received and how this understanding has put solid ground under her feet and expanded her comfort zone without her having to do a thing.

Sandra's anxiety was all around going to shops, to other busy places and just seeing other people.

James experienced chronic and severe anxiety which he thought was a result of the traffic noise outside of his house.

Emma felt extremely uncomfortable leaving her house, hard when you have 2 small children.

Like many people, I had spent years trying to fix me. I had almost resigned myself to my life being the best it was ever going to get; but I knew I was being short changed.

Now I feel like the butterfly has emerged from the chrysalis. There’s colour in my world, a song in my heart and wind in my sails.

I can sleep, I’m at peace and I feel truly happy; and yet nothing in my life has changed: just me! I will forever be grateful to Nicola, her team and all the members of A Little Peace of Mind who have shared their thoughts and experiences and given advice.

You cannot put a price on being given your life back ❤️

I’m feeling so much better than I have in the last seven years thanks to A Little Peace of Mind. I don’t need to do the hard sell on this. It just works and all you have to do is listen and let go while Nicola eases you through the understanding. 


Best thing I ever did for myself.

There are times when something impacts your life so profoundly that words don’t even do it justice . At the same time you want to find those words so you can share and pass along your experience with others . You want others who have walked the same lonely path of anxiety to not be afraid anymore , to not be alone and to not give up hope !

All by joining and listening to the 12 week program. after years of trying everything to escape the grip anxiety had on me. I have my life back , I am no longer a prisoner to my anxiety, I get to be present again and loving life!

Come join this supportive community that has grown to be my family from around the globe who wraps you in a warm embrace, reaches out a hand when your in need . All you need to do is listen to the words and be open to consider could this be true. what I have gained through insight by being part of little peace of mind I now know none has to suffer from mental illness or anxiety. Anyone can have this gift of wellness and freedom. I wish there were no more victims of anxiety . This program points you in the right direction to find what you have always been looking for!

I will be filled with gratitude for a lifetime and beyond for clicking that button that day to join ALPOM . My gratitude to Nicola for stepping out and sharing this gift with as many people as she can!

Cheryl

Simply life changing! I no longer blame my external world for the way that I feel I see that it is all just thought that can change in a minute. I am content and at peace with whatever is going on in my life. So grateful to Nicola and her team.

Dani

If I could, I'd buy the 12 week program and give it to my 25 year old self. At 49 I've finally found the freedom that I was searching for under every rock for the past 24 years.

It's not a fix or a thing to do. It's taking a course on anxiety and watching as it's power over you slides away the more you understand it. It's freedom.

Buffy

After a life time of anxiety  (I'm now 46) I feel I hit a peak last year where I knew if I didn't find someway of getting better then I really was looking a t a terminal condition. I tried so many techniques, but all of them wore me out - when you said in week one that there was nothing I really had to do I nearly cried with relief!

I have been so tired of trying to control this thing. Who knew that just relinquishing control could make such a difference. My anxiety was triggered by world events - when I get I'll I check the news up to fifty times an hour.

This trigger will hopefully explain to you why 2016 ended up being so bloody awful for me (it was a pretty shit year for ' normal' folk!) However, now as the world is apparently still going bonkers, I am alright. I check the news, and keep myself informed like a normal person .

When I do see an alarming headline, which would have previously sent me into panic and despair, I am able to think ' It's all ok.

I cannot tell you how wonderful this is! Just like you I am grateful for the horrors of my anxiety because I am really appreciating how amazing normal feels! I have come this far in just five of your sessions! I am so excited about what is to come!!

Thank you xxx

Janet

Nicola, something is changing! I can't get my head round this but I've driven over 100 miles up the motorway today, overtaking lorries all the way. First one was a bit wobbly, but after that I settled and was fine. I don't think I've done anything other than a bit of letting the thought pass. I'm so happy to have been able to do this today.

This is your own journey so you will travel at your own speed. You will choose different stops as you go and may reach your destination sooner or later than others but it is not a race.

I have achieved more toward freedom in this programme than I have with medication, counselling, CBT, and many other forms of treatment and though I haven't stopped my medication or other treatment they have become less important.

I've had a year of being "self restricted" to my house and crippled with depression and anxiety.

Being part of this conversation enabled me to leave my house alone at only week 6 of the programe. I did it again at week 7.

Now I'm at week 8 and understand so much more about my own anxiety and I see little glimmers of me that give me hope. I recommend an open mind and stick with the programme even if you don't get it.....you will.

Allie

 I am preparing for my 3rd flight to my daughters in Spain since signing up for the 7 day programme, l could not contemplate flying before, even travelling 2 days on a coach to get to see my daughter, it’s been over a year since l first listened to Nicola’s introduction, l love this group, the podcasts, absolutely everything about it, my life has changed in so many ways,

l would recommend this group to anyone struggling with life, young or old , once you GET IT, life will just get better. Thank you Nicola.

Margaret

Game changing, life changing...peace of mind can be obtained if you truly become aware that thoughts are just illusions, are not real and are not who you are 💙🤗

Nikos

So I'm not totally sure why this program works it just does. So much so that my Dr. Wants me to start wearing me off my medication. Nicola and shannon are wonderful leaders and James and Maryse are wonderful as well. All I can say is open your ears and just listen. Don't bother trying to figure things out its not worth the energy . Go with the flow. Key word being flow. The program also offers support from all of its members .

Michael

After struggling really badly for over 10 years, with what I thought was unresolved grief from losing my sister, and Mum I stumbled upon Nicola's programme and joined up...Slowly but surely everything she said made complete sense to me.

I feel completely different now, I no longer search to try and fix myself, as i now know I was never even broken in the first place. The pain of loss has been replaced with pure gratitude of living in the moment! 100% recommend this life changing programme.

Jayne

This program is the answer to it all. This is the shift. When you start to get a true understanding of how we really work, it takes load off the table.

You start to change and shift. It has taken me down a road of more of my spirituality and meaning to life. I can’t thank you enough Nicola for this wonderful program 💜

Christa

I can't believe it has been a year now since I started this program and I have my life back!!!

No more morning dread and an endless list of body symptoms.

Thanks to this understanding I no longer take my life, and the feelings of being anxious so seriously, knowing they will pass and all is well. Thank you Nicola and ALPOM for showing me the way......life is to be lived loudly, proudly and anxiety free. 😃😃

Tania

This isn’t just another one of those ‘magic fixes’, this truly is the path to freedom from anxiety.

 
During my journey with Nicola I have discovered a completely new perspective on life. My mind is quieter and everything looks more hopeful and exciting. And all just through listening and being open to change. 

Tanya

Just this August, after years without, this is what I did : Broadway show, two full length films on TV, a two hour hike in the heat, driving to JFK airport and back. No issues before, during, after. This program is a freaking miracle!

Maryse

I can't even describe how A Little Peace of Mind has changed me as a person,

I had tried everything but to no avail, I started on this journey 11 months ago, quiet honestly expecting nothing to change it was just another way of somebody exploiting people with anxiety issues like we have seen so many adverts for, but I couldn't have been further from the truth, this programme has given me back my life, my family, my friends, as every living moment was consumed with my thoughts, and my actions followed, I honestly couldn't see the wood for the trees, trying to put into words what Nicola and the team have done is near impossible.

It's a freedom that had been lost, a life that existed ...... not lived. Every day just led into the next with no purpose or meaning, that is all gone now, I can't wait to embrace life good or bad, this programme has shown me how to do this, and the support on line is brilliant,

Please don't hesitate in making change possible, you will not regret it, this programme does work and because most of the team have stood in our shoes they understand what we are going through, help is always there if you need it. Here's to new beginnings. X

Muriel

I can’t thank Nicola and all the team at ALPOM enough for completely changing the way I look at anxiety now.

Shannon’s Monday night calls are also fabulous. It is so worth doing the 12 week programme. Beautiful insights have been had and a new life to start living. 💗

So, so glad Nicola's programme popped up on my Facebook newsfeed. Helping me deal with anxiety and see it in a whole new light is actually the bonus... this programme has taught me so much more and continues to do so. I'm staying in this conversation indefinitely. I have become so much more at home with myself and peaceful than I ever was before. Nicola and her team are amazing, I highly recommend this on so many levels 💕💕

Melanie

I joined this program knowing I was being led by my anxieties in life and not experiencing freedom of choice. What Nicola showed me was how I was missing a piece of understanding, so simple and yet so profound. It has been a wonder filled journey and it was a sheer relief to be guided along the way in such an easygoing manner with no judgement whatsoever. I would recommend this program to anybody wanting a deeper understanding of how every human being experiences life and how to enjoy the ride of life along the way! A heartfelt thank you to Nicola 

Kiran

So this morning an amazing thing happened.

I had to get to St Pancras station and I agreed to 'try' to go on the tube - Victoria line from Vauxhall.

7 stops deep underground.

A few brief moments of discomfort but no panic.

Can't believe it. 6 weeks ago I wouldn't have entertained the idea.

Thank you so much Nicola you really have changed my life x

Anita

Just wanted to share positive results after week 1!!

I've had anxiety for the past 5 years resulting from a health issue that has now gone but left me fearful. This is very restricting . I fear going out far from home, trains, planes, busy places, work ( feel stuck until 5pm, what if I feel panic and can't leave) and my worst fear is night time.

This means, I don't go out at night. I only work part time. I don't travel far and when I leave the house I have to have all kind of pills on me incase I feel unwell. Always need water and a portable phone charger.

THIS IS amazing... I watched the first video. Felt like something clicked. Went to London a few days later to visit friends for the weekend. No anxiety on the train, no anxiety walking around London. I felt so good I asked my friend if we could go to the pub in the eve. I was amazed. Felt like I was in the moment and didn't think. Or at least... I didn't pay too much attention to my thoughts. Thanks, I hope things will stay like this
