The Annual International  Women’s Day Celebration 2016 on March 6, 2016

Dearest Victoria,
As founder of A Celebration of Women’s Foundation Inc., I want to extend my deepest gratitude for your participation in our 5th Annual International  Women’s Day Celebration 2016 on March 6, 2016 at The Hard Rock Cafe located at 279 Yonge St. Toronto.
I thank you for attending the full day from 11 am – 6 pm.  The generosity of your valuable time, hosting an exhibition table and being available to answer any questions of our guests the whole day is also appreciated more than you will ever know.
Your keynote was informative and well presented with eye opening information about Relationships.  Your talk was fantastically presented with moments of humor, allowing our women to relate ‘honestly to self’ about the facts presented, as we all have relationship issues.  The way you brought these points to the surface was a great benefit to all our women in the room.
Thank you for accepting my invitation to speak and I look forward to future collaborations.
Blessings,
Catherine Anne Clark

The Ultimate Life/Balance Bootcamp: Kick Anxiety the Butt Naturally, November 2, 2014

I was so impressed with Victoria’s workshop: The Ultimate Life/Balance Bootcamp: Kick Anxiety’s Butt Naturally that  I attended on Nov 2nd, 2014 that I can’t wait for her next workshop! Her clear easy to follow methodology helped me to identify specific behaviour patterns that I was not aware of in my life journey. Better yet, she offered helpful proven strategies accompanied by a checklist order to create daily positive outcomes! It was a humbling experience and I am forever grateful to this amazing woman for her guidance!

I participated in The Ultimate Life/Balance Bootcamp: Kick Anxiety in the Butt Naturally on Nov 2, 2014. Victoria provided a very safe feeling environment; I really learned a lot. Her exercises and lectures were very accessible and down to earth. The workshop was hands on, at the same time giving total freedom to participate at your own level. I’d recommend anyone experiencing some form of anxiety to attend this workshop. ~ Jaime

I attended The Ultimate Life/Balance Bootcamp: Kick Anxiety in the Butt Naturally on Nov 2. I have spent a number of years struggling with anxiety and have an ongoing battle with it. I attended Victoria’s Anxiety Workshop and was very pleased. I left the workshop with a number of practical skills that I can implement everywhere I go as well as some that I can practice in the privacy of my home, all of these skills are helping me stop anxiety sooner and more effectively.
Victoria offered us a number of suggestions and ways to battle anxiety with all natural, Vitamins and Minerals. She also showed me the value of meditation and mantras.
Finally, I also left there knowing that I’m not alone in my battle. Victoria made the workshop a comfortable and safe place for everyone involved.
I feel that everyone could benefit from taking these practices into everyday life. I highly recommend Victoria and her Anxiety workshop to anyone, no matter their level of anxiety.
Extremely pleased that I took the chance and had this experience. – Bev

Victoria dear,  thank you for your invigorating seminar last week.  You managed to stir the cobwebs of my inner self and motivated me to examine issues of my family culture as I progress toward more of a self-culture.  Ah, what we carry with us as a load and do not even realize…
The issues they have not yet all gone away, nor have they been fully buried, alas, they are fogging up and getting more shrouded.
You gave me the impetus and the reminder and for that I am grateful.
Be well, keep inspiring,

Paula G.

The Ultimate Holistic Anti-Anxiety Workshop March 9th, 2014

Thank YOU so much Victoria for the incredible workshop. As a Life Coach and Executive Team Leader I’m always challenged to help inspire others to live happier more fulfilling lives. You’ve taught me that one of the best ways to help others is to experience a monumental self-acceptance of my own. You have helped me do that by challenging my old beliefs and negative patterns, you’ve given me tools to help me through wanting to reach for my old chosen method of comfort and soothing (food) to numb out my pain and overwhelm and to actually have the courage to feel my feelings. I’ve also learned from your course and your book that it’s not only okay to be vulnerable but it’s an essential to improve my relationships and to actualize my potential. I’m a work in progress but the steps you’ve taken me through have helped me not only overcome my fears and anxieties but the comfort of being in a group of people that feel the same way was very healing. Listening to the group’s struggles help me feel better and more powerful. You helped us all see that none of us are victims or need to be prisoners of our fears, anxiety and depression. Left to my own devices and old patterns I can quickly spiral into overwhelm and want to hide out from the world, but your simple and straightforward ideas and tools are brilliant and help keep me connected. They work. And they will continue to work because I will keep practicing them. And best of all, no matter what I face in my life I know that I will be okay. I’m incredibly grateful for your life’s work – you truly have a gift and I’m so glad you’re sharing it with with the world!

Victoria has a true gift – for listening, guiding, and helping you realize your boundless potential and power. With her help I overcame a debilitating anxiety that I feared would be with me for life. She invited me to rethink my anxiety and listen to its underlying message and in that sparked change in me. Victoria challenges you to find your authentic self and offers you concrete tools to do just that. I would highly recommend her anti-anxiety workshop that I had the pleasure of attending in March 9th, 2014. Thank you Victoria. I have learned so much from you and so appreciate your giving spirit and passion to encourage us to find our happiness!

Dear Victoria,

I attended The Ultimate Holistic Anti-Anxiety Workshop on Sunday March 9th. You are a gifted master at managing a group and guiding people through their anxieties. Your energy, skill and transparency made the work you asked us to do seem easy even after having struggled with anxiety a lifetime.

You offered so many tools we can apply right away to recognize and manage our anxiety and I am looking forward to reading your book and doing more work with you.

You are the real deal and I feel privileged to have met you and all the great participants in the workshop.

The greatest gift was that I attended with my daughter and we will both be better for this experience.

I highly recommend this workshop!

Thank you,

Toni Abramson

On Wed Dec 4th 2013, I attended a life altering talk called “Self-Culture”: Get in Right Relationship With Yourself, Move Past Anxiety and Neutralize Your Inner Bully”. This talk was lead by Victoria Lorient-Faibish at Humber College-Lakeshore Campus, Toronto, Ontario at a fund raiser called “It Happens…Now Let’s Talk About It”, which raises awareness and support for student mental health issues. I am so appreciative and grateful to have attended Victoria’s talk. Victoria’s teachings have undoubtedly enhanced my personal relationships (both with myself and others), boosted my outlook on life, and intensified my level of inner self-fulfillment; therefore allowing me to become less stressed, more self accepting and happier. It is beyond question that being enlightened by Victoria’s teachings have brought peace, positive energy and happiness into my life.

I recently had the pleasure of attending Victoria Lorient-Faibish’s seminar,

“Move Past Anxiety and Neutralize Your Inner Bully.” Victoria is a brilliant and dynamic speaker who captivates her audience with her warmth, wit and vast knowledge of both psychology and holistic psychotherapy. She is truly an inspirational speaker, who through her candor and sincere delivery, gently coaxes you to do the hard work of unearthing your authentic self. I left Victoria’s seminar, with her book, “Find Your Self-Culture” in hand, determined and motivated to embark to embark on my journey of self discovery.

Thank you Victoria!

Victoria Lorient-Faibish presented “Finding Your True Power by Finding Your Self Culture”, Unearth the Person You Were Meant to Be!” at our Young President’s Assistants’ (YPA) 2012 Annual Conference. Many of us commented positively on the quality of the information and most importantly stimulated some excellent thoughts.  The presentation was informative and it demonstrated great interest as we learned “Balance of all the Elements is Key to healthy Self Culture”.  Victoria ensured a professional approach which allowed us to expand our thinking and beliefs. YPA would highly recommend Victoria Lorient-Faibish as a speaker.  She will definitely challenge your audience to think and analyze the information as a healthy skeptic.  We thank Victoria for her inspiration and motivation!!

I have had the pleasure of booking Victoria Lorient Faibish as a speaker on several occasions. She is always professional, well-prepared, entertaining and informative.

Attendees were also impressed with her qualifications in her areas of expertise. She brings a unique perspective and has an ability to present her topics in a manner that makes it easy to understand.  I look forward to working with Victoria again in the future
