I reached out to Pirie last Spring when I moved (escaped) from a Narcissistic relationship leaving me with PTSD, shattered self-esteem and drowning in tears. I signed up with Pirie’s 8-week program looking for answers to help me fight my way back to living my life again. Pirie shared tools to manage anger, forgiveness of myself and others, my inner child and adult, and regain my self-respect. I met with her and a small group every other week to discuss how we were doing emotionally, what growth and revelations we had using the tools she taught in our homework, and group discussions. Although everyone has their own story of pain, the tools Pirie shared with us, are universal in helping to heal the black hole of pain we find ourselves in at any given time. I am grateful to Pirie and know that if I ever need her in the future, she will be there for me.
Thank you Pirie.
“I recently worked with Pirie when I was at a crossroads in my life, trying to deal with an auto-immune condition and the emotional fall out from years of suppressed emotions. Talking about change in one’s life can be daunting, especially as one gets older, but the journey was facilitated by Pirie’s gentle nudging onward, working through the issues and questioning the narratives that we have all built up about our lives and the people in them.
Pirie’s amazing eight-week course took me through the last crucial steps of healing. I’ve been working through my childhood traumas for a long time. Traditional therapy helped and more recently I found effective help for PTSD. Unfortunately, no one knew the last few crucial steps to my healing, much less how to help me through them. Pirie did.
Pirie was the person farther ahead on my journey who I had been seeking. She is incredibly perceptive, kind, compassionate and straightforward. I now have an amazing toolbox and know how to address remaining triggers, negative thoughts and beliefs. I also know how to create new, positive grooves in my mind that reflect the reality of my life now.
Learning how to really love, forgive and have compassion for myself and everyone else in my life was another wonderful gift.
As Pirie says, It’s a process, not a quick fix. If your past and whatever happened to you is negatively affecting your present and your relationships, including the all-important one with yourself, Pirie has the insights and tools you need to change your story.
Through my work with Pirie, I have learned to shift and eradicate thoughts that don’t serve, to be compassionate with myself, and explored the very core of who I am. I’ve discovered that self-love is the most fundamental and important element in creating a life of love and meaning. Learning to love ourselves more wholly and completely initiates a cycle where we love more fully attract more love into our lives, creating a foundation for a life of greater potential and purpose.
Two years ago I was in the darkest place of my life. After a series of unfortunate events, I was emotionally, physically, and mentally drained. I was in a rut after getting out of a toxic two-year relationship. After being told repeatedly that I was a horrible person unworthy of love and life I started to believe it (silly looking back at it now). For a year and a half, I relied on alcohol just to get me through the day. I was fighting the truth that I had suffered multiple traumas and instead of dealing with it I just kept suppressing my emotions. The person I was at this point in my life was not someone I was proud of. Then I met Pirie. There are very few people who can reach out and touch your life in such a powerful way and that is Pirie. Only seven months in with Pirie but I have evolved more with her than I have in my entire life. She’s opened my eyes to such a more powerful version of myself. I’m not wandering through life blind anymore. I know how to speak my truth; I know how to adapt to situations that in the past would have triggered anger. Every day I’m learning to love and accept myself again. I had all the tools I just didn’t know how to access them. To be honest I believed I was a lost cause until Pirie reached in me and pulled out my own little toolbox and showed me the way. I’m moving in the right direction and I know I have a purpose. I take it day by day but it feels AWESOME.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Pirie. Although I practice yoga and meditation, I learned much today from Dr. Sue Morter about bringing it all together in with the belly breathing, squeezing the target area and focusing on healing feelings. I hope you will offer your wonderful series of interviews again soon so I can watch the first half of them. Bless your heart!
