I worked with Jacqui at the end of last year. She was recommended to me as I had a very acidic relationship with my step-daughter to the degree that we often couldn’t tolerate being in the same room together.
This on occasions created an extremely toxic family life with everyone sparring and knocking metaphorical chunks out of each other. Every situation seemed to be an opportunity to slight each other.
After an initial consultation I decided that working with her was the way forward. I followed her process (if that’s the right word) to the letter. Emotions surfaced that I never knew existed, physical tears of pain and anquish were released during our meetings but Jacqui just ‘knew’ what to say and how to say it.
She introduced me to EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) also known as ‘tapping’. I thought that EFT wasn’t for me and was all a bit woowoo. But I still secretly do some when needed.
She also practised some clinical hypnosis with me. Again, me being the eternal cynic poopooed it at first.
I had never kept a daily journal, Jacqui introduced this practice and it became a positive comfort.
Jacqui spent time with my Step-daughter (she’s 17) to look at our interactions and to dig deep into our ‘issues’.
I can honestly say that by the end of our time working together Jacqui has ‘repaired’ our family and the Dad/Step-daughter relationship.
Even months down the the line we work on our relationship and well being. We can now talk frankly to each other, we go out to lunch, watch a movie, cook dinners and cherish our family life.
I’m in absolutely no doubt that she has transformed both our thinking and actions and made our ‘blended’ family life something to be proud of.
Thank you Jacqui.
Lotti her dog is awesome too.😂
