I first met Andrea just before lockdown as I was experiencing severe anxiety and panic attacks. I had been on anti anxiety medication a few years previously, but gradually took myself off it. In November of 2019 I then decided to come off the pill and clean my body out a bit as I grew closer to the big 30! After about a month my anxiety came back worse than before, leading to depression. I hadn’t had a period due to stress levels in my body, had all my hormone levels checked which all came back normal which affirmed the anxiety playing a huge role. Due to no period my anxiety was worse, I was bloated, I needed sleeping tablets to fall asleep and I just wasn’t myself. It was a vicious cycle! I ended up going back into my medication over lockdown as that didn’t help being stuck at home each day with my thoughts either. By this time I had already had one session with Andrea and already felt lighter, my chest was beginning to clear a little.
I was still quite anxious though even after the second time seeing her. The third time she mentioned she was going to try and clear some ancestral trauma as I told her a bit about my family tree. Immediately the next day I felt a sense of calm. I was happy and was able to manage my stress levels. The anxiety, then came back a wee bit, but I had the biggest signs of a period I’d ever had before, although it still didn’t come so hormone levels went a bit all over the show again and anxious feelings came with it. The last visit I had with her we sat down and had a huge talk about how I was feeling (it’s like a beautiful counselling session beforehand, all rolled into one with body talk) and she did a lot of work on my heart and spleen, going quite deep for me. She mentioned that this might bring on my period straight away.. The next morning I woke up and had my period!! After 205 days she helped bring this on for me. Don’t get me wrong, I do a lot of journaling, meditation, walking and am of course back on my medication to help which all comes into my self healing routine, but the biggest part of my routine will always be Andrea.
She cares, she listens, she laughs with you, cry’s with you and is the sweetest, most gentle person and am so grateful to have met her. A friend and family member had mentioned her to me quite a while before I saw her and was a bit skeptic about the whole thing, but she will continue to be a constant in my life for as long she lives! Since having a period, I’ve been calm, happy, healthy (and apparently glowing!) couldn’t recommend her more. T.R. Auckland August 2020
ZOOM Session Testimonials
My First BodyTalk Zoom Session with Andrea A few weeks ago I opted for a remote online session, as in clinic session were obviously not available. Amazing!! It has made a lot of difference, I felt so much better even before I saw Andrea's recording. I opted for a Remote Session, as I was busy with work and unable to be online at the same time. I was a bit apprehensive to be honest, but not anymore. I have already rebook for another remote session in a few weeks time, BodyTalk sure helps to let go of that nervous energy and calms the mind. Thank you so much Andrea! R.D. Auckland
Zoom Session Testimonials We (my wife and I and our 3 daughters aged 17, 15 and 9) all relish our online sessions with Andrea. We have been enjoying the Zoom one-on-ones with Andrea for more than 12 months now. The beneficial effects feel as strong and Andrea's excellent curation of the session and explanations make you feel the same as being there. With busy work, school and home lives, it also means less travel time and so is a highly effective way to enjoy the blessings of Body Talk with Andrea! H. H. Auckland Zoom Session Testimonial (Instagram) Online Sessions are just as awesome, as in person!! Take it from me, I've had online sessions for the last 2 years, and was in person for the 6 or so years before that. <3 A.M. Wellington
Zoom Session Testimonial regarding Depression, Anxiety I have been struggling mentally at work and within my marriage. I have anxiety, low self esteem and insecurities. I had done body talk in the past when I lived Tauranga. I had done some research with body talk practitioners in Auckland and felt very drawn to Andrea. I liked how she has the option for zoom as it would be a long drive to the other side of the city. I have had three sessions with Andrea via zoom and it is really starting to have an impact on my anxiety. I wondered how a zoom session could be the same as being there in person. In fact, it is just as good without the tapping in person. It just works.
After one session, the relationship changed dramatically with my husband. My insecurities seemed to have disappeared and it felt like we were married again and not just friends. Andrea works with her guides, and she just knows what has been happening and heals my body to overcome these issues. After a session, I feel much lighter and within two days there is a huge shift.
I have lived with 20 years of grief and Andrea is helping me deal with this by healing my emotional well-being. I know I have a lot more sessions ahead of me, but I am blown away with the amount of change in my mental health since I have started with Andrea. If you suffer from any kind of anxiety or depression then I would highly recommend that you book in with Andrea. J.D Auckland
Where do I begin?? I originally went to Andrea / BodyTalk to help me with ongoingchallenges I was having within my relationship between me and my partner - I would get defensive and we would often escalate into arguments over trivial things. Not only did Andrea clear the bulk of the underlying issue in my first treatment, but I experienced a major shift in my way of being - to the point that I couldn't quite believe what had happened. Since my sessions with Andrea the pointless fights have all but disappeared like magic :) I've since been back many times and continue to go because each time I do I receive noticeable and tangible benefits to not only my overall health, but my awareness and sense of well-being. I have also had big break-through's in business where all the dots have started connecting which is very exciting to say the least! Andrea has a true gift to share. To anyone who has never heard of this type of work - I urge you to go with an open mind. It will absolutely help you in every way imaginable. H.B. February 2020 Auckland
Our extended Family have been clients of Andrea's at BodyTalk for over two years. This includes, Grandparents, Adult Children and Grandchildren. For us BodyTalk is a one stop shop for total health and well-being. We have referred many of our friends to Andrea, most of which are Children. Children are amazing and respond so well to BodyTalk, they have no preconceived ideas and base their session purely on their individual experiences. Apart from treating physical and medical ailments one of the main benefits for our family has been the emotional diagnosis and treatment. Children are not always able to express how they feel or know how to deal with the pressures of life, friends, school etc. We have proactively used BodyTalk for example for exams, fears and nightmares, eating and food issues etc. As a pro-active measure we book what I call a WOF (Warrant of Fitness) session in the school holidays. Being proactive keeps us out of the Doctors office and Chemists. Apart from these scheduled sessions, I will leave it up to the boys to tell me when they need another session and they know, they tell me. Andrea is great with the Children and puts them at immediate ease. My boys love her and have a great rapport with her which not only helps our sessions, but makes the experience more relaxed and enjoyable. I wish all Children could experience the release that BodyTalk provides. TN - Auckland
Andrea has helped my family and myself in so many ways and at so many levels. This therapy works and works best when you are actively working with it. There can be an element of passive healing if that’s what you decide, and that will take longer. Embrace this therapy and work with it, and I you will be amazed at the results. I was and still am. The sessions are fun, relaxing, emotional, enlightening and leave me with a sense of calmness and direction. Thank you for all you have done and all you are yet to do for me. L.P. Auckland
Although I think Andrea's treatment will be of benefit to anyone, I highly recommend her to those experiencing high levels of #anxiety and/or #phobia. I had lived with a debilitating fear that played havoc with my life. It stopped me doing many things and was a complete burden. There seemed to be nothing I could do to overcome the stranglehold it had on me and over the years I had sought treatment from many different outlets. In urgent need of assistance Andrea was strongly recommended and an appointment was made. On meeting her I was extremely nervous, but her training and understanding quickly made me feel at ease. Initially, after that first session, I hadn't noticed any significant change - maybe my expectations were set too high? However, as the days rolled on I noticed a growing reduction in my level of anxiety. Then, within 2 weeks and without a second appointment needed what had started out as an emotional road block was now nothing more than a fleeting thought. I had basically been relieved of all the emotional entanglements after one session and it has stayed that way since. I am truly grateful to Andrea and would recommend her to anyone suffering from any emotional issues. ND - Auckland

I have been going to regular BodyTalk sessions with Andrea for over a year now and I just want to say thank you Andrea for your fantastic healing work. I always look forward to my BodyTalk sessions and always feel a dramatic shift in my emotional and physical state afterwards. I have had some really big breakthroughs with my BodyTalk sessions such as when I had a really bad shoulder pain that wouldn’t go away and was really painful and uncomfortable, after 2 sessions the pain was gone! WOW! I also have had many emotional breakthroughs such as healing past emotional wounds, depression, anxiety and feelings of low self esteem and confidence. BodyTalk has changed my life and has given my life back! Thank you Andrea you're an Angel M.H. New Zealand
