I would highly recommended Esther and if Facetime is your only option to work with her, give it a go! Esther is a lovely, genuine person and shows a real interest in you and your story. Esther motivates you to really work on practical skills and creative energy!


Elaine's Story

Sometimes you are so bogged down with what you're going through that you just can't see a way out. Esther helped me to open my eyes to the wider world. I now see things in a completely different way. I put myself out there. Make clear decisions. I have taken back control of my life and become a strong woman again. 

I'm actually living my life!

Evodia's Story

No doubt this is just one very exciting chapter in Evodia's life story but with the inner belief and the life skills learnt in the sessions to manage in crazy times this is only the beginning.

“The sessions have been invaluable to me and I’ve seen the changes when I've applied the practice and so far…….so good”


Candice's Story

During my sessions with Esther she allowed me to stop juggling and have some 'me' time, to talk about 'me' and what I like, what I don't like, what I want to change but thought I couldn't and what I didn't want to change but realised I had to!

One week after talking to Esther and doing the Rewind Technique, I felt like a completely new woman and still do! I wake up everyday with a spring in my step, I'm so happy.


Felicity's Story

During my sessions with Esther she allowed me to stop juggling and have some 'me' time, to talk about 'me' and what I like, what I don't like, what I want to change but thought I couldn't and what I didn't want to change but realised I had to!



Earlier this year, I found myself at a point in my life where I was very happy with almost all aspects of my life, except work. It doesn’t sound like much in comparison and most people may say ‘you’re lucky you’re only unhappy with one aspect!’ And a year ago I might have thought the same way. However when you spend so much time at work it can have a huge impact on your health and wellbeing; I was feeling physically sick on my drive to work each day thinking of what the day may bring. It was awful.

I had an operation in June and it sounds silly to say but I was really looking forward to it and it was the only thing keeping me going at the time, knowing I would be able to take some time off work to recover! It was while I was off that I realised I couldn’t carry on like this and something had to change. This is where the lovely Esther comes in…

Esther is a very good friend of mine, and when she came to visit me post-op, we touched on how I was feeling and she said she thought she could help me. I must admit I was slightly sceptical to begin with, thinking if it’s that easy, why haven’t I been able to make the changes myself?
Esther was very patient with me and gently delved deeper into my feelings, values, aspirations & dreams until I was, for the first time able to have some clarity and see what I did and didn’t want in my working life. Esther gave me the confidence to put a stake in the ground and make the changes I so desperately needed for the sake of my health and the happiness of my family. I am very happy to say I have just started a new job which is far less stressful but still fulfilling and allows me to regain the all-important work/life balance that had been missing for too long. The skills she’s taught me, means I can now take care of myself more and self-manage any difficult situations that may arise, regaining a sense of calm when I need it most.

Without Esther’s help and support I know I would still be in a very unhappy place and I feel that life is just too short to be unhappy. I can’t thank Esther enough; she’s really helped me change my life for the better. To anyone who is feeling how I used to feel, about anything in their life…get in touch with Esther and take the first step. I am so confident you’ll not regret it.
Thanks again Esther xxxx



When my friend at work first suggested I go and talk to someone, a friend about my stress levels. It honestly freaked me out more because it made me realise I needed help. I was struggling with the promise of redundancy because my job was moving to another location two hours away from my home and life. I'd become so comfortable in my role, the redundancy threw me out of my comfort zone.

My friend gave me Esther's business card which I took because I knew I needed help. From the moment I emailed Esther she put me at ease, she set times that would work around my job and arranged my first appointment as soon as possible.

She gave me a place to understand my stress and grief of loosing my job and how to use what I had to move forward. The tools that Esther gave me during our time has and no doubt will continue to help me for a long time. I know I don't need Esther's guidance anymore but if I do she'll be there.

I grew from those sessions and believed in myself more. She helped me through the entire process of loosing my job and moving forward. By using the what I'd learnt I went straight to a new job and was able to manage the new stresses and be grateful for what I have. I cannot recommend Esther enough. She gave me the tools to bring myself back and make myself stronger."

I thought it would be good to start doing a monthly recommendation. I will only recommend people whom I have dealt with, so will know from my own personal experience.

As a therapist, and other therapists will absolutely agree with this, I wholeheartedly believe the therapy I do to be the best. I know it to be true. However, I have found my children not to want to use my therapy - cause it is 'Mum' or 'Mum's thing' - and I completely respect that and will continue to do so. So I was in a dilemma, my child had anxiety (exam year), trusting someone else with your child's emotional wellbeing and it NOT being your therapy.

I am blessed....a chance meeting I met the lovely Esther Limberg-Birks. My daughter had only 5 sessions with her (however she wanted more cause she loved seeing and chatting with her), and used the techniques to support herself and continues to do so. She said it was like 'having another auntie you could talk too'. You see Esther Limberg-Birks said it is about now and the future; and gave her to life skills (or tools) to help make the right decisions for herself. Isn't that wonderful? You see I love my daughter with all of my heart and I only want the absolute best for her.

Your future self will thank you for taking the first step
