    WHR 2.10 : Anik Malenfant

    A client once told me that I have an “uncanny ability to hone in and hit the delete button”.  In her case, the delete button was her stressors that were holding her back in her life.
    I will help you overcome your personal challenges so that you can access your unburdened life.  You deserve to feel YOUnified – YOU without Inner conflict.
    Having overcome a number of difficult challenges, I discovered a new way of life without suffering and fighting. I took back my life. This is now the gift I share with the world.
    I enjoy guiding committed clients, seekers and all-around go-getters to create a supportive, fulfilling and prosperous life, both personally and professionally.
