Women who are releasing people-pleasing, over-giving to courageously advocate and make space for their needs. 

Women who are shifting from unclear boundaries to  confidently shape new healthy ways of relating to themselves and others.

Women who are letting go of the idea that they need to be perfect to fiercely embrace their brilliance and humanity.

Tell me – are you familiar with any of these?

You’re continually giving away your attention to someone or something – and often times at the expense of your own sanity, sleep, relaxing time and happiness.

You’re dialing down your true feelings in regards to the division of labor in the house. But this pressure to keep the peace is actually leaving you feeling more distant from your spouse.

You’re constanly trying to be the perfect employee, parent, spouse and it’s leaving you feeling depleted and empty inside.

Meet the Woman Behind Living Unrestrained

Hi, I’m Vanessa Mentor, Self-Care Coach Helping Women Love Without People-Pleasing and Over-Giving

Single mom living in Haiti. Holder of my ancestor’s wisdom. Lover of soulful conversations and playful experiences.

My clients are women who are juggling kids, family, work and business with little space to care for and look after themselves.

But now are ready to relate in new authentic ways to themselves and others so they can be better parents, partners, leaders, allies … in other words better humans.

What they Say

My breakthrough happened in conversation with my body one night. It caused me to find a protocol that has, so far, been game-changing.

I wouldn’t have gotten there that quickly — maybe ever — if it had not been for the Unrestrained Body program. Thank you, Vanessa. Thank you for this work.

Uncommon Business Growth Coach,

My a-ha moment really came with the timeline we did in week 1. I had repressed some of the memories of earlier negative messaging.

I was aware of all my own negative messages post-cancer but it helped to dig in to some of the memories from earlier times that set the stage for my later reaction to my changed body.
