The Yellow Car – How to stop driving yourself crazy

The Yellow Car – How to stop driving yourself crazy is the title of Toni’s first book

Late one night a yellow car drove into Toni’s  life and changed it. In a suburban street she had a profound epiphany that altered forever how she deals with anxiety and stress. This funny and powerful story is loved by audiences who leave with a brilliantly simple tool to change their lives – it’s also the basis of a wonderful longer session or workshop on how to deal with anxiety.

Gratitude is the astonishingly easy way to change most areas of your life. Supported by years of in-depth research into the science behind this powerful practice. Audiences are entertained and surprised to find gratitude is not what they thought it was. Contentment and happiness go hand in hand with gratitude though can be addressed as separate topics if needed.
