Name: Lara ( Australia)

Diagnosis: Anxiety

I have been struggling with severe anxiety since the age of 11. I have been through a countless amount of therapists and psychologists and I can say with a hand on my heart that Lou is by far the best person I've ever seen. I had gotten more out of 1 session with Lou than I had gotten in the past 6 years and I was left feeling so much more hopeful and strong within myself. Her words have stuck with me and I will never forget what she has taught me. She creates such a safe and encouraging space and it has helped me feel so much more confident within myself. Lou is like your very own virtual mum!

My brain felt like it had been untangled and I couldn't be more expressive of how much I have benefited from working with Lou

Before I met Lou and did her Loving Living Programme, I had problems with anxiety, depression and trauma. Once I started working with her, I could see the changes immediately. She is amazing! I have looked at many things over the years to help with my problems. I have been in therapy, but I haven't felt myself getting better until I met Lou. She has given me better emotional intelligence on myself, the tools to combat my mind monkeys, confidence and a new lease of life. I have thoroughly enjoyed the course, the group work and one-to-one sessions with Lou. I recommend The Singing Zookeeper highly, my life has completely changed.

The session you had me was genuinely nothing short of life changing for me, I felt so much of my childhood trauma was able to be bookended from just one session. There was a reconnection between my childhood self and my adult self that reduced so much stress and gave me the ability to really sit calmly with things that crop up now and the past doesn’t have the intense power it had over me anymore.

I used to wake up feeling anxious and nervous. During the day drained, lacking energy and being depressed in the evenings. The sessions with Lou have been transformational! In just a short space of time the engaging techniques and exercises I’ve learnt are now an essential part of life. I feel like a better version of myself. Knowing myself and liking what I find! Now waking up feeling more relaxed and confident every morning for the day ahead! In touch with myself and surroundings(Yes really!). Confidently working towards my goals. Joyfully changing negative situations at work, home and social life into positives ones and feeling content at the end of the day. Tell yourself it is possible! Trust the process, trust Lou, she’s got your back! You won’t regret it! 🥰 A Dennis Hertfordshire, UK

Please, give this program a try. Your body, heart, mind and soul will love it. 

The program is very adaptable in real life. It’s a reflection of what truly goes on within our mind. The person that we keep calling our enemy, or our demon or mind monkey is in fact us. Throughout this program I learnt different techniques, meditation and did various exercises  which has helped me a lot and I learnt how to make peace with my other side: the demon, the bad side whatever we choose to call them. Since this other side is still part of me. I have learnt to love it, heal from it, listen to it but never let it control me. Because at the end of the day I’m the boss of my own head. Finally, feeling alive, feeling in control (even though everything is out of control). I am content. This is just one aspect of it. There is connection with our primal body, our soul, strengthening our neuron pathways and much more.

Thanks Lou, you are wonderful! I came to you because I was frustrated and at a very low point in my life. I had very dark thoughts and didnt know what to do with myself. Right from our first session I could feel your experience in your authentic and honest communication. You brought so much light and value into my life and I feel more grounded and secure. I wished more people would have the chance work with such a great therapist like you! I am very grateful for you and your work Lou! Sincerely, Luka
  • At the beginning of the programme I felt very insecure, when negative thoughts came up I didn’t question the logic or root of them and I found it hard to feel better after getting to a low point. I was dealing with accepting things as they are despite what I wanted to happen, I definitely feel as though I’ve reached the point of being in tune with the present moment and how to adapt to issues as they arise.What I hadn’t been aware of before I started was that most of my insecurities were based off of assumptions* which I had no proof to support them. I’ve noticed that I’m now able to see where any anxious thought root from when they arise and I’m able to find what the mind monkeys are trying to tell me, and then I can move past the thought much easier. I’ve been starting to question my negative thoughts, Instead of immediately become a victim to them and let them overpower me. I’ve realised that my relationships with other people have definitely improved as I feel more secure in myself without seeking validation, I've been able to have better communication with others as I’m more In tune with myself. If I could sum up how I feel in 3 words they would be: calm, refreshed, stable Thank you,~ Georgia ( student) UK

"I am so lucky to have found Lou via TikTok. She is generous with her time and is passionate about what she does. I am just finishing her Loving Yourself course and have found valuable tools to gently cope with traumatic memories and minimise intrusive negative thoughts. I am so grateful for this course and feel less controlled or feared by my past." K. Childminder (USA)

As someone who struggles with indecision, low self-belief and feeling like an inner connection to myself is fragile and gets lost, Lou is so amazing and grounding, her insights just make so much sense. I took her course Loving Living and that was such a useful and effective way to turn inwards and identify patterns that have been running my default moods and behaviours and the stories I tell myself. The course helped me to undo a lot of negative self-talk and judgement which has been SO freeing and beneficial, and it's just a really lovely way of making friends with yourself, calming your mind and 're-setting' yourself back to your inner wisdom. The community she is building is full of such amazing and inspiring people too!

Recently I was diagnosed with Functional Myoclonus. It's a neurological condition caused by severe trauma.

I was having up to 300 pseudo seizures a day.  

After two sessions I could walk short distances (without a wheelchair) and feed myself. In 4 sessions I have gone from bed bound to being able to get up for several hours each day, most days. Sometimes I am out of bed 4-6 hours. I mostly sit and paint.

 My condition is for life, but with Lou's help I have managed to learn to control my jerking. 

My stress levels have dropped through the floor and my insomnia has stopped too.

It's amazing how disabled your brain and trauma can make you, but more amazing that Lou can reach deep inside, help you to recover your own self esteem. She acts as a catalyst for you to reexamine yourself.

I don't just recommend her I say that Lou is so gentle and intuitive she helps to dramatically change your life.

I have never connected with my body before, I have never thought about it in this way"," some of the words I have said during my first therapy with  Lou. The way I was thought or saw things being done was mostly in a very negative way. Imagine my surprise when I have learned there are other possible ways of acting, thinking, listening, controlling and educating yourself in such a manner that you don't go inside "the rabbit hole" again. Where I come from depression, anxiety and such are not taken seriously unless you got schizophrenia. It takes practice to discipline your mind but with the right guidance, anything It's possible. Lou is the best, in the 1 h session with her I have learnt so much and I have gained a lot. Thank you so much, I love you, and guys please give it a go! I promise you that she is the real.

Lou is so easy to talk to.  she has an empathy that only fellow suffers have.  She is so positive and intuitive.  It wasn't a  question of just talking it was the coping strategies that were the real benefit.  i have been using them for 6 weeks now and can honestly say Lou has helped me tremendously.  Simple short little ways to get your positive side working.  Thank you xxxxx

Today I have found the inner strength and courage to deal with something BIG that I have been in denial with/ignoring for quite some time which is a massive step on my personal journey towards healing. The universe certainly gifted me by placing you on my path and for that I am truly blessed and grateful

 I has Struggled with SAD ( seasonal effective disorder) for as long as i can remember . rendering me incapable of achieving anything apart from surviving during the autumn and winter months. After one session with Lou , my SAD has totally gone, and in a period where i would normally be incapable of doing anything of any significance i have gone out and bought a house! Feeling elated, relaxed, happy and able to use the relaxation techniques.

 I feel I addressed issues I have suppressed for years and have learnt how to start working with them to make them less significant.

Lou’s  ability to deliver the material in an easily relatable way was very welcome and I found myself looking at my insecurities and ‘icky’ bits and even being able to laugh at them.

Many thanks to the singing zookeeper for teaching me new methods of thought, meditation, delving deep and release.
