Annette came and did a presentation / workshop for our Social Services Program. She was a clear and passionate speaker. She was well organized and used visual aids to enhance understanding of material and topics covered. She was very engaging and had the attention of everyone in the room!! The examples and stories she told really helped students grasp the material. I would have her back anytime!!

I have been working with Annette for a few months now. My family was concerned with my anger issues and I was frustrated with continuous conflict.

Annette helped me understand triggers, perception and to question why and what it really means. I now evaluate rather than react. My home is more peaceful and I feel closer to my wife and children.

I strongly recommend Annette Adkin.

More peace.

Annette was an instrumental person in my life. I was struggling with an alcohol problem and had such low self esteem. She felt safe and I could talk with her about anything. I slowly started taking steps in my recovery and I stopped letting myself down. She believed in me when I had a hard time believing in myself. She helped me see things from my childhood that didn’t help me cope and deal with my feelings. I learned ways to cope and I built a better support group. It wasn’t easy and I fell down but managed to keep getting up. I now have my first year clean. Thank-you for everything!!

Struggled with alcohol and low self esteem.

Annette has been very helpful to my kids and myself as a counsellor. She has many qualities which make her a natural at what she does. Her authentic, caring, kindness and compassionate ways when actively listening to our issues helped us to develop a trusting client/counsellor relationship which made us feel safe when discussing difficult issues and feelings. We always felt that our feelings were acknowledged with no judgement but with genuine care and concern for our well being! Thank-you Annette for all of your encouragement, support, knowledge and teaching that you have provided myself and my children. We are eternally grateful for all of your words of wisdom, patience with us and the practical tools you have given us to cope with life on life’s terms.

Eternally grateful.
