“Vanessa Osage did a training for 11 staff members at my school, Loving Space preschool and kindergarten. She made the content specific to the 3-6 year old children we work with and our individual questions and concerns. The class was thoughtful and led with such empathy and understanding for the depth of emotion and history that comes up with this topic. Vanessa gave us great resources to use and share with parents. She brought out her puppets as visual aids, and a bit of comic relief, and left us all with specific language we have already put to use with our students. I feel lucky to have Vanessa as a new resource and look forward to working with her again soon.”
Abby Franklin, Owner of Loving Space School

“You are a guide. Even though you are younger, I look to you for how to live my life. The grace with which you live and the way you prioritize what is most important in your loving relationships… has me naturally looking to you for support.”

“Vanessa, Your grasp of this coaching competency is beautiful to witness. You went well beyond what the client stated as his concerns. You were observant, empathic, responsive and flexible in your conversation. You have a naturally calming and soothing presence that makes your clients feel totally accepted and understood… It has been a pleasure to watch you grow and coach so beautifully… You are truly gifted!”

“I had the profoundly healing experience just by sharing with such a loving, nurturing woman. The space I went to in myself was very raw and vulnerable, and I felt that Vanessa was able to go there with me bringing tenderness, love and acceptance. I was able to surrender completely and trust that I was held and supported in a way I had never experienced before.”

“Vanessa was a professional speaker at our clinic’s Pelvic Health and Wellness Series. She commands an audience, holds their attention and engages them individually in a compassionate and empowering manner. We would love to have her back in the future.”

“Vanessa worked a miracle in my family. With her guidance, I was able to see and create a whole new vision for my relationship with my daughter that included communication skills and age-appropriate books… Vanessa was also able to expand and enrich that vision with her expertise in other cultures and rituals. These elements were powerful and touched my soul – this was what my original vision was missing, and what I ultimately needed the most.
… Since then, my daughter has come to me to talk about issues I know she had been keeping inside. She says things like, “my friend shared that she has never had a girl talk like we do with her mom.”  I know that because Vanessa came alongside her and saw her wholeness, she was able to see me in a new light – she finally believed in how hard I was trying to connect with her.
The value of my meetings with Vanessa Osage cannot be overstated. She changed everything.

“Vanessa, you are the best. I always feel so deeply heard and understood in our sessions. You hold me accountable and challenge me – but it feels safe, because I know you absolutely have my best interest at heart. There is a warmth and strength in your insights. Your creativity helps me to see my situation in a whole new way and inspires me to keep moving forward.”

An amazing coach – I had the honour of doing coaching with Vanessa, and it was such a pleasure to be coached by her. Her coaching presence and the safe place she is able to create by her being-ness helps you to see what is going on, and what next step is most helpful. She really knows how to inspire change!
I also got the chance to read her workbook on sexual education of kids and teens. Since I am a mom it really helped me a lot to get clearer on what’s important to me and how to implement that when talking my children. I think she really has great expertise in this topic and working with her can make a difference!

“I wanted to shoot you a quick thank you for Monday’s session. I found the
information you shared to be very helpful, encouraging, practical and eye opening. I look forward to putting it into practice… Thank you for what you do… You are definitely filling a much needed gap in children’s (and parent’s/adults) sexual education and the whole communication dynamic around the sensitive topic. I also love to see how passionate you are about it too.”

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for the work you’ve done with her. I know it’s only been a short time and only once a week, but it has really made a difference. I could tell each time as I dropped her off how upset or angry she was, but always when I picked her up her entire aura had changed to being one much more open, positive and friendly…”

Vanessa Osage helped me launch my first book through her powerful words of encouragement and positivity.  She radiated a “you’ve got this, girl” attitude.  I feel so grateful to have crossed paths with this visionary and inspired woman who helped me see beyond what is, to what is possible.

“Just wanting to thank you again for yesterday. This seminar was well worth the time and money. So much good discussion and resource-sharing and stretching my brain — such a safe and welcoming “container” you created. You’re a great model for qualities of open-mindedness, curiosity, and warmth. I’m both a parent and a mental health professional, and the content of the seminar challenged me in both those realms in positive ways. I hope you continue to find ways to offer this conversation and that you get more and more attendance, and I’m so glad you’re in the community!”
