Anne Walsh’s Latest project, The Mommy Monologues, is a collection of stories about motherhood told by moms from many walks of life.
During her signature talks, Anne brings humour to experiences of daily life while offering valuable tips for overcoming common challenges. She helps audience members connect through her interactive style and use of creative directives. Anne empowers women to share their challenges with others and brainstorm realistic solutions together. She also supports women by recognizing their inherent value and creating a platform where their voices can be heard.
- I love Anne’s workshops because she is so authentic and gentle. She welcomes you into the group and you feel accepted.
- I came into this workshop confused and I now have a plan. The problem-solving activity where each person wrote on our problem profile was so effective. It got right to the root of the problem.
- I really enjoyed this workshop. Anne is so nurturing. I felt safe.
- Anne is a riot! She is plain and straightforward and even when we discuss something heavy, it feels like a girls’ night out.
- We got to spend time doing something creative as a family. Our son opened up about his feelings. We had this great chat and it was all very natural.
- I always envied artistic people. Now I realize I can be creative and have fun and not take everything so seriously.
- Anne made quite an impression on our students. I know a few of them will be in touch with her. Three students now think they would like to be art therapists.
- Our students were so excited to participate in this workshop. They learned a vocabulary and we gained some practical tools as well to deal with their behaviours.
