This page contains testimonials from clients about the work of Astrid Boot, medium, healer, therapist, and spiritual teacher.

“In the beginning of 2016 I was at a lowest low; I was depressed after losing a baby, I could not find a job that suited me and I was basically broke. Especially my financial position sort of paralysed me; which way to turn now?! Find a no-brainer job? Find a job that suited my previous working experience? Start up my own practice again? I had no clue what to do or where to start. I turned to my old friend Astrid for advice and guidance. Her first reply to my message made things more clear for me and calmed me down right away. After a session through Skype things became even more clear for me. Astrid was there for me with compassion, clear advice, humour and guidance. She pointed my nose in the right direction. I now have the best job in the world, kicking my depression fast and feeling my strength again. Without Astrid’s consultation I would probably still be sitting on my couch, depressed and wondering how to break the circle.”

“Dear Astrid,
I cannot thank you enough for running the course Improve your Mediumship. It was so much more than I imagined. The course delivered everything that you promised and it was presented in an easy to understand manner, you were able to answer all of our questions and were very patient and reassuring with our progress. It was a lovely opportunity to meet with like-minded individuals and share our learning together. You have provided a wonderful environment for people to pursue their spirituality and I thank you so much for allowing me to help add so much value to my life over the last 6 months.
Many blessings,”

“I would like to express my gratitude to Astrid Boot for creating her Improve your Mediumship course. 
I found the course very beneficial to my personal and professional development and made some wonderful friendship along the way.
Astrid is a very intuitive teacher, she had a course outlined however this was expertly modified as the students progressed in their own journeys which enabled each student to extend their knowledge of their subjects of interest and to include learning something new.
I would like to encourage others to consider attending Astrid’s course and to see what else is possible for yourself.”

“During the course Improve your Mediumship, Astrid took me on quite a journey. I have learned so much. From first learning to trust my intuition to how to protect myself and my energy. I also got to meet my spirit guide and my guardian angel for the first time. I learned how to do different types of readings and how to heal. The course is very practical and Astrid is a patient and naturally gifted teacher. The mediumship course has changed me in so many positive ways. I am a different person to the one who started this journey. For this Astrid, I will always thank you.”

“I participated in Astrid’s Fulfilment Transformation Program and found it extremely helpful with my poor self esteem, internal critical voices, and negative thoughts and feelings. Astrid used the tapping technique to help me face my fears, release the negative emotions and negative energy I had absorbed from those around me, learning to protect myself from negative energy. Astrid helped me to feel worthy and deserving, able to listen to my soul and connect with my positive internal voice.
With Astrid’s help I gradually was able to take down the wall I had built around myself as protection from a very difficult relationship. I no longer spend time ruminating on what I could or should have done or said in the past. I recognise the thoughts and feelings relating to my past and am able to “send them on their way” so they no longer cause sadness and low self esteem.
I highly recommend Astrid’s services and her gentle, reassuring and positive manner.”

“What a special experience. A reading with Astrid. It was the first medium in which I had full confidence. Almost immediately. She was the only person who made contact with my deceased sister. She also taught me how to make contact by myself. Astrid is a very open, honest and loving woman. Actually, you can not speak in this business of ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. But Astrid is really good. I am once again this time with my sister. She also thinks it was a very special experience. A reading with Astrid is recommended.”

“I have had wonderful experiences visiting Astrid. I first went to Astrid in 2012 as I had just moved to NSW from Victoria and was feeling very unsettled and questioning my move. Astrid offered me a calming and safe environment where she practiced EMDR on me and this was the first time I had experienced this technique, as when I lived in Victoria my experience was with Reiki and other techniques.
It was ‘mind blowing’. The treatment helped me to face a lot of my fears and I was able to move on and settle here in NSW with the knowledge that I had made the right decision and my guides are with me.
I would recommend Astrid to anyone with confidence that they will achieve what they are asking for in a calming and safe environment. Thank you Astrid.”

“My therapy session with Astrid was initially booked as I felt constricted in terms of my future and at a loss as how to move forward with some negative feelings I had about my life, including specific difficulties I had with my mother. Please note I am a middle aged woman – it took some time to get here!
I had experienced EMDR therapy with a psychologist many years ago after I lost a child and found it very helpful, so was happy to try it again. Astrid is a gentle soul and used the tapping technique to guide me to locate this negative force. I was so surprised at how physical the blockage and negative energy was and could actually feel it moving around my body! The strong connection between the physical and emotional states left me quite exhausted but within a couple of days I was experiencing a new and positive energy and had thought of some useful strategies.
My second session was more of the same… lovely warm comfortable environment with tapping, locating the blockage and ridding myself of it. I found the way Astrid helped with visualising the blockage particularly useful and I left with some ‘homework’.
Now, some months down the track, I can reflect back on that time and say that the sessions were remarkable in how they allowed me to see my circumstances differently and to physically and psychologically feel stronger and in charge of my future. I feel so positive now and have changed my relationship with my mother in a permanent and healthy way and have changed jobs for one that I enjoy! All in all, an excellent outcome!”

“Working in a stressful environment with at risk teenagers, I was feeling more incapable of managing my emotions and keeping my work life out of my home life. My sleeping patterns were terrible; I felt unable to ‘switch off’ and my emotional state was affecting my health.
Astrid offered EFT Tapping as a way of releasing my feelings and focussing on positive healing. I felt the first sessions changed my emotional state instantly. I was able to, with Astrid’s guidance, delve into past relationships and understand how they still affect my wellbeing today. By releasing those emotions and letting go of negativity attached to it, I was able to feel a sense of renewal in my way of dealing with anxiety.
I am grateful for Astrid being able to show me EFT Tapping and how I can use it daily whenever I feel the need to cope with my emotions in a positive way. I look forward to each session I have with Astrid as a way of further understanding EFT Tapping and how I can benefit from performing the exercises Astrid has taught me.”

“I experienced multiple sessions with Astrid. A few of them were healing sessions including EMDR and EFT Tapping, about making myself more aware of listening to signs of my body. An eye-opener indeed. As the results of daily things happening to me resulted in bad health. And with bad health, I mean really bad for a long time. Astrid got me back on the road to recovery. Not only does that include a healthy life, but also a more understanding, empathic one. A win not only for me but also for all around me.
Another session with Astrid was getting a reading with my than almost deceased father. At that moment I knew he was in coma and about to pass over and I asked Astrid to contact him. She did and it was a reading that made me calm, understanding and peaceful with the situation. A few days later I could fly to my home country for his funeral without any doubtful, worrying thoughts and feelings. It was a reunion with my family, and like a celebration of my dads well lived life.”

In the past I was a shy girl. I could never say ‘no’ if people asked me for help. That’s why I always ignored myself and I became a nervous and insecure person. I received all possible therapies and treatments. It helped for a little while but I stayed insecure. Until I visited Astrid. In the year 2005 after my husband passed away, I suffered from guilt feelings to him. I wondered if I had done well enough in our marriage. I asked Astrid for a reading. It was such a beautiful message and I could confirm everything. Incredible. I got tears in my eyes. Astrid received the information from my husband that he still loves me, that I had done well enough and still am doing everything fine and that he’s proud of his daughters: his middle daughter is very sensitive and close to him, his youngest daughter can cope with her life even though he’s not there anymore and he visits my oldest daughter when she’s working in the garden. He puts his hand on her shoulder. That’s really how she feels it while working in her garden. My husband told about a ring with a black stone. First I didn’t get it but then I realised I brought his wedding ring to the jewelry store a couple of days ago to add 5 diamonds on the ring. The meaning of the 5 diamonds: 4 stones for his women (3 daughters and I) and a little stone that represents himself up in heaven. I was so happy with the reading. I finally could release my guilt feelings. What a miracle that Astrid got all this information.
After the reading I visited Astrid several times for treatment. Before the session we always talked about what was going on. That made me feel at ease. That’s when my insecurities show and why I am so nervous. I learned how to handle being insecure with a new way of thinking and to not fall back into the past. Astrid taught me how to let this go: by imagining an opening in my head and to let my past fly through that opening to the Universe. It really helped. I also learned to end relationships with people who I didn’t feel comfortable with anymore. It takes a while before I notice this situation and before I can say ‘this relationship doesn’t work for me anymore’. But it’s such a relief when I’ve taken action to end such a relationship. I feel free and I can let go everything because I took the right decision. Astrid helped me connect with my guide and she helped me back into my own power again. She helped me believe I can do it and she gave me the following affirmations: I love myself, I respect myself, I am who I am. I became a stronger and powerful person. I dare to do things on my own now; I started sculpting (for good relaxation), I enrolled myself as a member of a choir (helps me with my breathing and voice exercises) and I do sports now. And I enjoy it every now and then to be just alone at home. If you don’t feel well, I can recommend to visit Astrid for treatment.

Astrid has now done two readings for me. Both readings came at an important point in my life. They took away doubts and gave me faith to follow my intuition. Because of these readings I became more aware of the presence of my deceased father in normal life. The basis is faith. Rest was created through this faith. That’s why I live my life more consciously and with more love for myself and the people around me.
