New Possibilities Private Coaching Testimonials, mostly from final review forms or unsolicited e-mails:
"Ann used her considerable gifts to guide me thru an amazing personal journey that continues to unwind for me with all kinds of insights and healing. Working with Ann opened me up on several levels to all kinds of new possibilities and opportunity. This is something well worth anyone's time." Paul Dolman, author of Hitchhiking with Larry David
"Through working with Ann, I feel optimistic, hopeful, and excited about my future. I believe that these tools – the coaching, the reading she's recommended, the focus on positives – are all working in my favor. Ever since I traded in my limiting belief about work success, my business has been BOOMING! My relationships are also stronger and more honest; and I find myself more grateful and appreciative of things/people. I am able to control my thoughts and feelings. I LOVE THIS!" C.F., Realtor
“I wanted to share a big Ah-Ha moment that I had today, thanks to Ann. I met up with Ann at her "country retreat" home for a private coaching session to do some more one-on-one work regarding the loosening and losing of my self-limiting beliefs. My two particular beliefs had been on my mind for some time, and I couldn't seem to manage to even begin to loosen their knots. What a relief...not only did she help me realize how ridiculous my two locked-and-loaded-seemingly-stuck-for-life beliefs were, but how easily I could let them go.
And even better, she caught a few more self-limiters that I didn't even know I had, just from our casual conversation. (She has a really comfy spinny-rocky chair, so it's easy to relax while Ann does the hard work, seeing the things I couldn't see, while I blabbed along). By the end of our discussion, I finally "got" how easy and possible it can be to lose those no-good beliefs that I had unknowingly pledged allegiance too. I want to encourage anyone who's feeling stuck to call or email Ann for a private conversation." J.B., Marketing professional
“As you know, when I began getting coached by you, I was very frustrated about being denied a promotion at my job for way too long. I want to let you know that I spoke with my boss today, and she is recommending me for the promotion I have been wanting! I'm sure this has a lot to do with how you helped me to really feel my value in the company, and the new strategies you taught me to use.
I'm very pleased to see their confidence in me now, and getting to this point is a huge victory to me. So THANK YOU, THANK YOU for helping me with this. Yay!!” R.L., working mom and marketing manager (who has since moved on to an even better director position a better company, who agreed to all of her criteria)
“You have turned me around as a person and have given me so much inner strength and confidence. Working with you, I feel like a huge burden has been released. I feel this calm, peace and lightness inside that I can carry with me anywhere. It now feels so easy; and it's so exciting to feel this way!
Because I'm feeling so much better and learning so much from you, not only do I feel better about relationships I was stressed about before; but they actually are improving tremendously, too. Thank you so much." H.L., Social Worker
“When I began working with you, I never felt good about myself. I was always stressed out and paranoid about what others were thinking about me – socially and at work. I couldn’t keep a relationship; I was overweight; I had anger and temper issues; and I needed to drink myself to sleep every night. Because of our work together, I feel great about myself and others. My anger, fears and negativity are under control, and I’m actually really happy! I’m also in a great relationship, have lost weight, and I can control my drinking. Thank you!” Creative Director for athletic clothing & gear company
"Ann has been a huge source of support for me. Her powerful processes allowed me to access guidance and confidence beyond what I was able to tap into on my own. She guided me to a place where I was able to meet a very wise part of myself that I can continue to count on and dialogue with when I need added support. Meeting this part of me helped me shift a long held belief that was not serving me or my business. It was so freeing personally and created instant bottom line results in my business." P.G, life coach

Charlene Frary: With Ann Ide?
Facebook poster: "Yes, Charlene, Ann was great; do you know her?"
Charlene: "Oh I surely do! I did some various life coaching programs with her... I learned soooo much from her! Many techniques and practices and mindsets and different ways of thinking about things and letting go of limiting beliefs. She helped me learn how to be joyous! :-) "
"Hi Ann, I just wanted to drop a note and say hi! I've been doing great and I use your techniques often. I am so grateful that I was able to work with you and I feel as though I live everyday to the fullest. I am able to make it the best day possible. There are plenty of ups and downs but I can work through the tough moments.
I hope you are doing well and still coaching, it was one of the most influential experiences of my life. Take care, Amanda"
“When I started with Ann I wanted to boost my happiness level as she had advertised. I had been living with a lot of stress and was feeling physically unhealthy and exhausted, and wanted to live each day with more inner harmony, peace and spiritual connection. Once we began our work, areas of old wounds and limited beliefs rose like carbonated bubbles. As we confronted these, Ann provided me with powerful tools which I could use to focus my mind and heart towards love and joy.
When we began our work together, I was diagnosed with cancer. Utilizing these tools was essential to the well-being of my spirit and to the recovery process itself. Ann was very intuitive, upbeat and listened well. Her toolbox of ideas was extensive and all the more powerful as she walked her talk. Even in the midst of my cancer healing process, I was able to learn to live with an undertone of grace - the goal I had asked for in the beginning of our work together. Ann's coaching process can provide a healing cushion of peace as well as training your mind to access your fullest potential to live from joy. It is wonderful!” M.A., Reading Specialist, now very healthy and happy!
“I think Ann is amazing! I struggled with anxiety for years and worked with a few psychologists in the past. Ann is the first person who provided me with techniques that provided real changes. I feel so much happier and at ease, and like I now have the ability to positively shape my days and control how I feel. Now I don’t feel scared or have anxiety about possible everyday or future changes. I now know I’ll be able to handle them and find happiness and enjoyment. Also being able to do this over the phone was a HUGE help. Driving to see her would have been difficult. I just can’t find the words to tell you how much better I feel and how happy I am with the results we achieved.” A. G., working mom
“Ann has an amazing gift in seeing the positive side of situations and getting to the root of negative thinking and leading one to see the positive side of situations. I always started a session perceiving a situation as hopeless, but my perception would change drastically after Ann's coaching session. I’ve accomplished more than the goals I set out to achieve when I began my work with her. My relationships have improved; I feel better about myself; I feel hopeful and calm about my future and able to take courageous steps I never could before; I have strategies I can continue to use; and I’m having so much more fun! Moreover, Ann's meditations are amazing - it always leads me to a very calm place.” M.Z.
"Before I forget, I wanted to say thanks again for the ongoing help with public speaking. I had to present again last Friday, this time in an auditorium type setting. I used the tools we have been practicing, set my intentions, and it went much better than I had expected. Thank you!" G.B., Sr. E-commerce Marketing Manager
“When I started working with Ann, I was feeling a lot of stress, pressure, and fears, and just wasn't as happy as I wanted to be. Now that I've completed her coaching program, I've learned to think differently about my work and my art, and all the things I want. I feel more in control of my future, and my emotions. I've learned that I can influence the way I feel about something. I now feel positive much of the time; I'm better able to shift my moods when I'm feeling down; and I'm finally taking steps that feel good to me to make progress towards the goals I had been struggling with." L.R.
From an unsolicited e-mail: "Thank you, Ann, for being a part of my life. I'm so grateful for you for your ongoing support. I remember a few occasions when I was in a panic and you helped me through and calmed me down. You really seem to get me and offer very practical advice when that's what I need. You have helped me live in the moment and deal with the many stresses of my life. You have made a huge difference in helping me shift my thoughts and actions and giving me perspectives I hadn't thought of." Lynn L.
“When I began working with you, my original issue was worry and anxiety. Thanks to our work together, I now definitely worry less and am less anxious. This happened pretty quickly. Little did I know that the bigger opportunity I was to experience was the wonderful spiritual journey I was embarking on. I now have a journal full of words of wisdom from our work together which I refer to when I am troubled to help me. You have helped me tremendously. I am so happy to have you as a resource. Thank you so much!" S.R., small business owner
"Ann is a brilliant thinker, emotionally generous, and a more kind, loving and evolved person than I have ever met.
Before I started working with Ann, I thought that everything was wrong with me; and it caused all kinds of problems and suffering for me. With the life skills she taught me, I now feel so good. I no longer doubt myself or my choices; and life is getting so much better! I'm more positive, more free, and not bogged down anymore by the mind clutter I created. Most importantly, I feel so happy and grateful every day (sometimes twice a day)!
Thank you Ann, TRULY… you saved my life." N.B., self-employed graphic designer and mom
