"What got you where you are today will not get you where you're headed to next." - Vanessa barrington

Kind Words

“What can I say Ness! You are that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I came to you with my mind in a tangled and blocked mess, and finished the session with my mind awakened and immense clarity with the roadmap on how I was going to bring my business to life, fully surrendered in my own ability and empowered to succeed.

Ness you have an incredible innate ability to tap into a person’s energetic field to release blocks, translate it all so perfectly and inject a ‘shift’ in a persons mind to help clear the path towards transformational growth.

Safe to say, only a month later, I’m kicking goals well beyond what I could have imagined. The flow- on effect from that first session has been insane. You are now part of my ‘secret sauce’ business toolkit to empower me through growth!”

Jessica Bastie, Owner, Cherry Soda Creative

… This has honestly changed my life. I started writing my book before I joined The Book Doula Program, I’d never done anything like this before. I had no strategy, no idea, no direction – I decided to give this a program a go.  I’ve come so far.  Vanessa is just the most incredible, inspirational woman. I’m so grateful she’s come into my life.  And I feel like I can make this book something beautiful and amazing. It warms my heart to think I can make this book that can help so many people.  I have all good things to say.  Please definitely do it if you’re thinking about working with Vanessa. You won’t regret it.

… Writing is really easy for me these days.  I want to honour the woman who has helped me get to this place.  The Book Doula aka Vanessa is an incredible, incredible woman.  Her skillset is second to none. Her integrity is matched by none. 

I am absolutely in awe of the woman who has taken the time to sit with me, to listen to me, to encourage me and to support me to get where I am right now. I am currently almost finished the first draft of a manuscript I never thought I’d have the skill set or bravery to write. I have learnt skills I didn’t know I needed. I have had a light shone in the dark places of my mind to help me unravel stories that only had a few words. I have had access to professional feedback in the most supportive, understanding, kind and caring way. I don’t feel alone in this journey any more. 

Lauran Wassell, Author

“Vanessa helped me start my business.  The guidance and support I received was invaluable to the successful launch of my new brand and reaching the right audience.  The range and depth of knowledge exceeded my expectations and opened my eyes to what is required to start a successful business – and more importantly, that I was capable of doing so. I gained confidence to achieve dreams and goals that until now had only been fantasy. Many thanks Vanessa. I am so very grateful to you. X”

Monique Michel, Author & Copywriter Coach

“I worked with Vanessa on rebranding my business website. Vanessa helped me to unlock the parts of myself that I was resisting and holding back. Vanessa held a beautiful space for me to share my story, which is a vulnerable one, and she helped me to understand how my story can help others.  Vanessa is highly creative and intuitive and she just knows! Highly recommend Vanessa if you are thinking about rebranding! Thanks Vanessa.”

Olivia Slater, contemporary intuitive aboriginal artist

She always has wonderful advice, tips and tricks and has helped boost not only my sales but also my confidence. Highly recommend!”

Daisy Hill, Aboriginal Artist

I am very appreciative of the professional and creative input she has provided my business.  Vanessa is strong in her values and ideas, and always attentive to the needs of others. I would recommend Vanessa to any profession looking to build upon their productivity. I have enjoyed working with her and am pleased with the results.  Thank you Vanessa!”
