“I went to bernie for a session of life coaching i was a nervious at first but as i spoke to her and she asked me my key question i was amazed at how less compicated things in my life actually are would recommend a session of life coaching, really make me see thing different thanks bernie”.

My fist skin problems (such as spots and blemishes) occurred when I became a teenager. I guess I considered that rather ‘normal’ at that age, hoping that these would disappear overtime. But as time went on, my skin condition was not getting any better, in fact it was only getting worse. And of course I was not helping it by squeezing every little spot that came up. It only resulted in leaving a large number of unsightly scabs on my face. When these ‘healed’ they still left me with red aftermarks and new spots would appear continuously. So the whole situation became a vicious circle. I became very aware of my condition, knowing how visible it must have been for the people in my surroundings. This would, of course, hugely weaken my self confidence. I was trying hard to find the reason underlying all this, suspecting it may have been partially a hereditary cause, but also stress and food related. It wasn’t until I read the interview with Bernie in a local paper that a spark of hope lit my way for the first time. She was offering the first consultation for free, so I decided to give it a go! From the first look at my face, Bernie knew immediately what would be the right treatment for me to use. I was hoping ( after reading the article) that she would recommend the ‘Green Peel’ and she did! What I liked about it was the fact that it uses only natural ingredients (such as herbal extracts, algae etc.) Before we could apply the Green Peel, we had to help my skin become a little less irritated. And from the first moment Bernie touched my face it started to improve! After having given up all my hope, this felt like a miracle…The treatment itself felt a little uncomfortable (causing the upper layers of my skin to peel off over a period of couple of days) but I knew the results were worth doing as I was told 🙂 I am now a few weeks after the Green Peel treatment and can’t believe the difference! No more spots coming up and my skin feels so smooth…And do you know what’s the real proof for all what I am saying here? It’s all those people who’ve known me that come and actually say: ‘Your skin is so much better than before!’ So I would really like to thank Bernie for saving my skin, thus improving the entire quality of my life! And of course, all that in a completely confidential way!
