When I first began the AIP course, I was 23 years old, I had no idea how impactful and life changing the course was going to be for me. I became a very different person when I finished the course to when I started.
Things that get in the way
I recall specifically wanting to stop twice throughout the two year journey. A few months into it, I didn’t know if I could afford to do the course anymore. I ended up sorting out my finances, made saving for the course a priority and realised it was possible. This was the start of me managing my finances successfully.
The second occasion, was when we were a few months away from finishing the course! I had an ‘idea’ or a ‘temptation’ to move to the UK. I remember feeling sad I wasn’t going to finish the course but thought moving to the UK was something I was meant to do.
After some further consideration and help from the facilitators, I realised I was in an illusion and the truth came pouring down from my higher self. The idea of not finishing the course suddenly felt so stupid and crazy and the allure of moving to the UK felt far less enticing, more like a whim to take me off my authentic path. I decided to go for a holiday and came back ready, and grateful to keep going.
Challenging the ego
There was and continues to be so many valuable learnings. Uncovering and recognising my ego out of balance was a huge discovery for me and continues to be so to this day. Not letting my ego rule my life and trip me up is an ongoing challenge.
The AIP really helped me mature my self. It was a great support and guide to me as I entered into my young adult years. It was difficult to show every week sometimes (back then they were weekly classes), yet I always did except for a couple of holidays.
I found it a challenge not to let my ego dominate me in every class. It was a genuine discovery to realise that I wanted to be the centre of attention, to talk even when it wasn’t necessary. The course helped me to find further balance, to observe and listen more, it took quite some time for me to work through it.
A lot of self reflection after class helped this along, learning to listen to my feelings when I wanted to speak up and differentiate between an ego fuelled comment or a genuine helpful share. The way I spoke and the language I used also changed as I moved from my ego leading to my whole self being considered and included.
The support and absence of judgement from Kerrie and Zoe made entering into the depth that AIP can provide possible for me. Facing hard truth about myself can be embarrassing and painful. To be guided and supported through that with respect and non judgment is, I feel, a rare and incredibly important part of the AIP.
The sessions with Kerrie and Zoë have helped me see the patterns that have been undermining my ability to connect to my self. They have given me tools to welcome authenticity into my life. Whenever I finish a session with Kerrie and Zoë I feel I have greater insight, I am less burdened and much less conflicted. I leave feeling lighter, and more myself as well as feeling the return of hope for my future.
Kerrie & Zoë!
My skin has been amazing. The best it has ever been lately! Very rarely going red and zero breakouts. I have been feeling really confident and calm lately too. I still need to work on my overthinking.
I really enjoyed both sessions, thank you so much! You both have a sense of calm and I felt like you knew me so well, which was really cool. It was amazing to talk about things and I truly value your advice.
Before I started this journey, I never checked in with myself to feel what was in my greatest good. I put others before myself and wondered why I felt disappointed and empty. I thought that the more I did for people, the more that I would be accepted and liked. A lesson learnt in childhood. I was a very social “people-pleaser”, submissive but I was never in tune with my heart.
I have learnt that I have free will and choice and to stay in the moment. My boundaries are not selfish they are the way that I show respect to myself. Staying aligned and balanced keeps me safe and working with my higher self. Life flows. The difference between then and now is that I feel that I am an authentic woman and not a lost child.

Searching for something, but what?
When I first started the AIP course I was definitely looking for something in my life, however I had no idea what it was!
Friends of mine had used the term higher self and mentioned this course. I truly had no idea what the higher self was but I decided that it sounded great and that I wanted to get one! Looking back, despite my blissful ignorance, a chord had been struck within me and that was the beginning of my journey.
Over the two-year period there were many times when the then weekly commitment of turning up felt like a big ask. I never wanted to quit, but lounging around at home was sometimes more tempting.
I quickly learnt that those weeks, when I really didn’t feel like going, were the most important classes for me to go to. I always gained something of value or released something that was blocking me. I learnt to question more deeply what was going on for me, beyond what my mind might have understood, and to recognise my discomfort as a sign that something needed to be addressed. I still work like this today.
Getting underneath it
When I began the course I was a person who came across as a happy and relaxed person on the surface, however I was not able to stand up or speak up for myself in any area of my life.
Once upon a time people were shocked even offended if I ever spoke up and attempted to put a boundary in place for myself. Today people comment that,
“its unlike you not to say something if something isn’t quite right”.
I continue to work on finding balance with holding boundaries and speaking up for myself, it’s become second nature for me to do this now and I’m so grateful for that.
Prior to commencing the AIP course I had spent years trying many different things, working with different people trying to find resolution and peace in my life. The process of learning to work with my higher self along with Zoe and Kerrie’s continued support, has provided me with a way forward that feels authentic and right for me.
The AIP has been tremendously challenging at times. My personal relationships in all areas of my life have been tested, every time asking me to find and hold my own truth in each circumstance, and not all of those relationships have stood the test of time. This has felt heartbreaking at times, yet my relationship to myself has continued to grow stronger.
Finding more of me, the next step, higher self
I look back on the time that I was going through the course with so much love, for me it was a really special and transitional time. I didn’t realise that in “breaking through to my higher self”, I was actually finding myself.
When I completed the course I hadn’t had the bolt of lightning breakthrough to my higher self that I was thinking I might have at the beginning. My breakthrough to higher self was more subtle and unfolded over time.
Most importantly, I realise now, that I had laid down the foundations for my adult life.
With all of the challenges that I have gone through I’ve not once regretted my choice to take this journey. I feel it was my destiny and I feel more whole as a person for it.
My day to day life has changed dramatically. My life isn’t perfect, I still face challenges. There are still parts of my story to resolve and pieces of myself to put back together again. When people ask me if there’s anything about my life I’d like to change though my answer is, no!
It’s challenging to describe what Zoë and Kerrie do in sessions but for me it feels like a harmonious blend of life coaching, psychology and energetic healing. Each time I visit, I leave feeling like things inside my mind and body have shifted; like I’ve been gently guided, by a powerful self-reflective process, moving roadblocks and sharing insight to help me develop my intuition and grow as a person.
I completed both the Higher Self and Soul classes with Intuitive Intelligence Sydney a few years back and have been seeing both Kerrie and Zoë on a one-on-one basis.
No matter how challenged I’m feeling at the time, I can say without a doubt that in each session I feel completely supported, and leave feeling stronger, more grounded, full of direction, equipped with tools and connected to my heart.
Kerrie and Zoë have both been true role models for me and I would recommend them to anyone who is wanting to find depth and meaning in their lives, to reconnect with their authentic selves and a new path forward.

I’ve been seeing Kerrie and Zoë for over two years now and can honestly say they’ve helped change my life so much for the better. Before I started working with Kerrie and Zoë I went through life feeling sorry for myself and was basically depressed all the time. I was overweight and drank too much and was not fulfilled in any area of my life.
Kerrie and Zoë showed me that I have choices and how to be responsible for those choices. I turned my life around so much so that my friends and family are amazed. I’m so much happier living as the most authentic person I can be. I won’t lie, it’s hard work, but nothing beats being happy. I’ve lost weight, fulfilled the dream I have always held of going to uni and I have ended bad relationships that didn’t enhance my life.
I’ve learnt that the answers lie within me and to always trust my gut and listen to myself. Kerrie and Zoë guided, supported and backed me through some hard times and good. I can’t thank them enough for their guidance in helping me turn my life around for the better. I really look forward to continuing working with them both to further improve my life.
Zoë and Kerrie are highly intuitive and connected. They have a significant ability to cut through the layers and get to the heart of what’s really going on. One of their greatest assets is their ability to listen to what I’m saying and see beyond the words to identify the deeper issues at hand.
My sessions with both of them have had a profound impact on my life. They have helped clear my energy and the patterns that have been limiting me. They have taught me to set clear boundaries with people in both my personal and professional life.
Some of the most positive changes I have made are a result of the work I’ve done with both of them!
I first went to see Kerrie and Zoë for help with my fear of flying but they helped me with so much more! They showed me how not to fear anything, they helped me to control the racing fear in my mind. I am now able to control my fear by listening more carefully to my whole self. By using the tools Kerrie and Zoë taught me I feel safe in all situations.
Without their help I would find it very stressful on the long trip back to the UK to see my family and friends. Now I fly feeling both safe and comfortable.
Finding the authentic self
I was unaware of what the course was about initially. I was seeing Kerrie for session work and she mentioned the classes and suggested they would be good for me especially with regard to the current events in my life at that time. I remember the first class, parts of me where exceptionally nervous and very uncomfortable, like any first day. The topics and what I was learning took time to integrate. There were many times when I wanted to stop. I continued to keep persevering, attending class, doing my homework and additional work on myself. Deep within my being, I knew there was an opportunity presenting to me to become a strong and empowered woman, an opportunity to unfurl more of my potential.
My life has changed incredibly, as a result of taking this journey. I feel more centred and aligned with myself. I have trust and knowing that my life is more full than it was. I now know that I can work to fulfil my dreams and goals, to have a positive influence on other people.
It has taken a lot of courage & commitment to do this course as it and has been exceptionally confronting when working on myself to bring forward my true self at times.
My higher self and soul connection have helped me develop a deeper commitment to my self.
Discovering the higher self
I have understood since taking the course, that my higher self is incredibly patient, supportive and always has a handle on what’s required of me. I am still learning to surrender and heed my higher self’s guidance. I am also now aware of and feel a greater responsibility to acknowledge and claim my souls history than I was prior to the AIP.
I have a greater awareness of the potency of my choices; I need to support myself on a day to day basis. My interactions with family, friends, colleagues and animals are more enriched since finishing the AIP and I continue to apply the course material. My finances are becoming more stable and this year I achieved an overseas trip for a month that was but a dream before I implemented my learnings! Creativity is more present in my day to day life, I feel in the flow.
I will always feel blessed and exceptionally grateful to both Kerrie and Zoe for their support, understanding, commitment and love of teaching the AIP.
Looking back I would not have chosen differently as I was exactly where I needed to be at that moment, when I began.
I first started seeing Kerrie and Zoë when I was struggling to find my purpose and I was unable to move through reoccurring patterns and was seeking some support. Essentially, I knew I was getting in the way of myself moving forward and needed better access to my own inner guidance system.
Through my sessions I have been able to transition through challenges and reoccurring patterns that have held me back.
I am very grateful for the time and care that Kerrie and Zoë have given me. They are genuine, real and honest and have a great purpose to help others align with their true inner guidance and strength to move forward.

I highly recommend the work of Kerrie and Zoë to anyone who is determined to make deep and lasting changes in themselves.
In the room during a session there is a quiet and unspoken communication that expands my awareness to allow the deeper and sometimes unrecognised parts of my own intelligence to be acknowledged, heard and healed.
This experience leaves me feeling very balanced and with a healthy curiosity to explore more of my potentials and possibilities.
Getting Hands On!
I first became interested in the AIP course because I wanted to learn more about how energy worked. I had read some books but I wanted the face-to-face experience, I wanted to know how energy interacts with me. I soon came to realise that it was so much more than chakras! I learnt more about my own self-awareness, my inner intelligence, how to take responsibility for my own energy, to improve the quality of my life.
The two years flew by, there was a lot to learn and practice. I enjoyed every aspect of the course even though some days were a challenge. I was taught so many practical tools which I still use today.
One of the most valuable lessons I gained from the AIP was how far reaching and impactful my energy often is and how empowering it can be when my energy is balanced. I now know that every challenge is an opportunity for me to apply my skills. My life has definitely changed for the better! I feel calmer and more centred at home as well as at work. Decision making is easier and my purpose is clearer.
When it Really Matters
Three months ago my dearest friend died and I surprised myself with how well I handled my emotions. I moved through the pain more gracefully than I thought I would.
The more we learnt, the more the classes evolved. I learnt so much from the other people in our group. It motivated me to want to do better, it made the challenges that much easier. The group, the mediations, and especially Kerrie and Zoe’s constant efforts to guide me were highlights for me over the two years.
Finding the Strength Within
In hindsight, I am more confident and positive as a result of undertaking the AIP. I feel the strength inside me that was hidden before starting.
I feel extremely thankful that I chose to complete the course, I wouldn’t change a thing, I still continue this journey as an alumni member, and apply my knowledge from one day to the next.
Working with Intuitive Intelligence Sydney, Zoë and Kerrie, was the best choice and decision I could have ever made. I used be very unhappy, depressed. I did not understand the world around me yet there is so much to love and look forward to each day. They have guided and supported me. It has been a long path to feel happy each day, to love myself for who I am and understand myself on a deeper level. Thank you Zoë and Kerrie, love Jana
I came to see Kerrie and Zoë a few years ago and I remember how approachable they both were. I felt as if I was in good hands and developed trust in working with them both.
Looking back at the work I’ve done with them, I can really say I’m a better person today for it.
I have a greater understanding of what I used to struggle with. The changes I have made since have helped me see my life in a much more whole and inclusive way.
I used to hide behind a mask or an alter ego. I now understand that I did this to meet the imagined criteria that I felt everyone else needed. Kerrie and Zoë helped me to understand how overextended my ego was and why I was using my energy in this way. I realise now that other people could see straight through my mask and the act of keeping this up was exhausting! People found it hard to relate to me or didn’t trust me and I always felt frustrated at being misunderstood.
My mind was always racing and inventing false realities, I felt anxious and thought I had to perform for everyone else. I carried the burden of supporting my family without realising I was living in my Dad’s shadow. I had no idea at the time how much I was overworking and overcompensating mainly because I did not feel truly worthy in my self.
Kerrie and Zoë worked with me using a step by step approach to help me build a better foundation for myself. I have become so much stronger and can now value who I am even when I am having a bad day. My ego no longer needs me to be perfect or pretend to be someone I am not. I am no longer trying to prove myself to others to my own detriment.
My life has a lot more meaning and my personal as well as my professional relationships have improved. I’ve learned how to be open to receiving feedback rather than being defensive. Getting out of my ego game and finding more balance has me feeling a lot more satisfied and more equiped to deal with stress. I’m grateful that my wife asked me to see these two women.
