Giordana Tocacceli is a self-admitted bipolar disordered woman  defrauding her audience by pretending to be a psychologist that treats and diagnoses psychiatric conditions such as bipolar disorder, Borderline personality disorder and Narcissistic Personality disorder.  

I happen to be a licensed medical professional and a  member of her group.  Seeinghow she manipulates these women is despicable.  If you disgree with her she kicks you out of the group and accuses you to be one of the disorder she treats.  She is highly manipulative and the women in her group are simply not in an emotional  space to know better.

From her group:

"I also have to work with clients who have gone through severe PTSD from breaking off of cults, negative religious environments, abusive families etc."

Women with border line personality on the narcissistic spectrum
Alright let's dive into some psychology today-
I have never been a fan of labels or inflexible diagnoses as I see someone as complex and multi layered- and flexible depending on the healing available. [continued below]....

However today let's talk about borderline personalities in women on the narcissistic spectrum-
Borderline personality is someone with the inability to manage attachment, bonding and emotions effectively-
An example of the would be a woman who cannot attach but is desperate to have an attachment to a man or with a loving man-
So she goes to obsessive crushing, infatuation, flirting, and rushing through objectifying a man in order to create the illusion of a bond and healthy attachment- however she is at her current state incapable of it.
With borderline personalities you may not even know you are in a relationship with one until they abruptly end a relationship, rage at you or start attacking the core of who you are.
Typically they start off intense, and then are disappointed when you cannot give them the real love they are searching for- which may have guessed it-
Their missing mother.
Or their missing father.
When it comes to leadership- leaders, healer and coaches will often find borderline personalities will put them on a pedestal and that pedestal is high. This is because a woman with BP,often lives chronically in a fantasy world and not in the real world, which they have a hard time with and often can't cope with- now believes they have found their missing mother, or father-

And I've spoken about this before- since as a child they had a missing mother, or father, or an emotionally absent relationship with parents that were there- as children they create fantasy versions of their parents that are on a pedestal, idealized and perfect.

So if you are leader, one of the first things I suggest, is get off any and all pedestals- they won't serve you long term. The woman with BP personality will always eventually want to rage at the missing parent, when the parent shows any signs of being human-
Because the woman with BP cannot handle humanity- they cannot handle imperfection, they cannot handle the reality and intensity of intimacy, the flows of relationship- and all they do is objectify others. Now a BP can do this to only one relationship in her life (with men) or be a chronic isolator who does this with everyone in her life.
The characteristic her is that a woman in this spectrum cannot see a man for the soul he is, but only can objectify him. She can only ever be in love with her idea of him, not the real him.
So she is desperate for love, starving for it- but cannot bond, cannot attach and doesn't know how.
Then when the attachment fails them, which it always does, their rage is- I'm going to destroy you for not loving me the way I need you to.
Wives do it to husbands.
Women do it to men.
Kids do it to parents.
Some people in a tribe do it to leaders.
Women with BP often believe in magical solutions- they are often enslaved to magical thinking- so they are are on the lookout for the next formula, or program, or teacher that allows them to not have to put any work in, or work on themselves, and magically the solution will drop out of the sky- the magic pill.
They often think you will magically fix it, women in this magically think a man will fix them- without owning it themselves.

Underneath they never attach because they are often constantly recreating fantasies-
they often don't see humans as complex beings- who are imperfect-
all they see is objects with human faces-
As I mentioned this is bc of lack of parental intimacy at childhood and a proper bond- they have a fantasy of what they are going to get-
They come in to a tribe or community and can't respect boundaries, and don't see other women in the community, they just see an audience for their own narcissism and demand to get their needs met.
They chronically isolate and start intense relationships which end abruptly, end in rage.
They put people on pedestals and then constantly say things like, "All people let me down."
They are looking for a magical solution that doesn't involve any investment, sacrifice or work from them to take ownership of their change and change their own life.
They keep attracting:
beta men
sugar daddies that reenact the parental role with objectification.
they attract low worth men
they attract narcissistic men.

They are in a cycle of intense, short lived relationships and friendships, and then end up alone again.

Desperate rage they don't have the love they want, oh my god I need love, Im starved for love, I am going to kill you because you don't love me-

"I liked him but he is a total d****ebag"
"All men are cheaters"
"All women are needy and fake."
"This tribe hates me because I spoke up and got shut down."
"This leader is false because he or she didn't solve the issue I have to solve for myself."

Now does this mean someone can't have a real negative experience with a tribe or a leader, absolutely they can-

I also have to work with clients who have gone through severe PTSD from breaking off of cults, negative religious environments, abusive families etc.

That isn't what I am talking about today....I am talking about those that are desperate for attachment but cannot have real attachment, and so they are in a cycle of starting up relationships and when the realness of relationship emerges, they destroy it and go back to isolation.

Anyway, can you break free from this? Yes- you can. This is the crux of everything I teach, I just often don't go too into the psychology behind it"

This post is highly manipulative especially since she is talking to some of the women who are struggling with psychiatric disorders.  You cannot practice psychology or psychiatry without a license.  She is GRANDIOSE in her own thinking to believe that she can treat these mental disorders without ANY formal training.  She goes on to tell her audience that she has treated and coached  multi-billionaires, models, actors etc yet none of them have a testimonial for her

This is illegal is every state.   Just 2 years ago this woman admits she was broke as a health coach and had not so much as a dime to her name and now she's all of a sudden had thousands of hours of experience treating women with these issues?  Any of us in the medical field knows that it takes at least 3 - 7 years after formal training on the graduate level to begin seeing patients with these issues.  She has no formal training.

Life coaching is a largely unregulated profession and she has ZERO credentials.  She is not certified, not formally medically trained as a psychologist or psychiatrist.  Yet she is admitting to treating women with these conditions and manipulating them in her group posts:  facebook. com/ groups/ The High Value Woman/ permalink/ 524517204550209/  which I copied and pasted below.  I will also add the screenshots.

This is highly problematic as any licensed pmedical professional knows better than to practice medicine or psychology on Facebook.  

You cannot practice psychology pr psychiatry and make people pay you exhorbitant amounts of money to treat them for something that you are not licensed to treat yet she is charging women $10,000 to work with them as a coach and if you don't want to work with her she makes posts like this to shame you.

Here's her formal work history from Linkedin:


What peer reviewed research has she engaged in to make the claims or having developed years of reesarch??  With what training or license?  She has been a health coach for a few years and that does not give her a license to treat or dignose.  


Please avoid her at all costs as while she is claiming to helpwomen she is doing more harm illegally than good.

My Experience With Giordana

AUTHOR: ostrich85 - (United States)

I have followed Gio for over a year, and had an opportunity to work with her personally in that time.

Prior to working with her as a 1:1 client, I was made aware that she is not a licensed therapist, but instead bases her coaching on experience. I was not led to believe she was either a psychologist or psychiatrist. I WAS led to believe that she could help me.

And she did.

It's pretty simple, really. I have seen therapists, and psychiatrists as well--- and each was beneficial. In my case, Gio recommended additional medical testing on my nutrition, as well as a few others I won't divulge. Suffice to say, her approach did include the addition of other areas of practice as well as licensed professionals to provide quite a well-rounded view of my own situation.

While I appreciate your concern, I would like to ask if you have worked with Gio at all... or if you are basing your assumptions about her skill level, abilities, successes and clients on your limited exposure to her and her work through the FREE group she offers on Facebook and her Linkedin profile? My Linkedin profile is quite out-of-date as well, and I would hope a prospective client wouldn't judge me based solely on that, but instead also pay attention to referrals, recommendations, and testimonials.

You see, I too, am not formally trained. I have no degrees, licenses, or certifications in my work. I am completely self-taught and, quite frankly, amazing at what I do. I don't claim to have any of these pieces of paper, either, yet I get results for the people with whom I work. There are people who are terrible at what they do, with all the degrees in the world to back them up--- and people who are just gifted at what they do, who have no formal training. My results speak for themselves.

Is it wrong she should help people who have survived trauma? You imply as much. Yet, I survived multiple traumas and she helped me.

It is important for consumers to research people before they work with them, and to be informed about anyone they choose to work with, especially in areas of mental and physical health. I completely agree with you. I wouldn't hand over cancer treatment to the guy at the corner deli, because his mom beat the disease. BUT, if he had a proven track record of helping hundreds of people deal with and survive cancer, I would at least want to hear what he had to say and decide for myself.

Rip-off implies to me that Giordana is pretending to be something she isn't, and offering something she is unable to deliver.

I have never seen anywhere that Gio claims to be certified or licensed. And, at least in my experience, (and in the experience of numerous women who I have spoken to), she has been able to deliver on her promises. I HAVE seen her claim to be intuitive and self-taught. I have seen her speak of helping people through methods that SHE herself developed. That her perspectives are her own, and not some she learned at university. I have also seen her say, multiple times, that there are issues that are MEANT for therapists--- and not meant to be addressed in her groups or through her coaching.

Rip-off also implies to me that you have, in some way, suffered a financial loss you were unable to recoup through reasonable means. It would seem that you have not--- only forming this judgement of her abilities through your exposure to her in a FREE Facebook group and her outdated Linkedin profile. Your position is that she... what? Isn't licensed to make judgements about people's mental health?

You presume here, that she did. You presume that the client wasn't diagnosed before seeking out Gio's help. You presume that Giordana did not, as she did in my case, ask for consulting opinions of other professionals. You assume that she is acting irresponsibly without any real knowledge of how it is she IS acting.

I find your insights valuable, and hope that women WILL consider them when deciding if Giordana is the right person for them to hire, but I also find them rife with assumptions and judgement, and hope women will consider that as well. If you are looking for help in finding a great relationship--- Giordana DOES help people with that. In the process, she often helps with much more. I highly recommend her based on my experience with her. However, she *isn't* a great fit for everyone... and I would expect, neither are you.

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

From the Owner Giordana Toccaceli In Response To This Fraudulent Post

AUTHOR: Giordana - (United States)

Hello, I am Giordana Toccaceli. I am a certified Life Coach with over a decade of experience working with others and my focus now is Relationship Coaching. When I work with clients, we work as a team of experts as needed per client-

I work with 3 excellent Licenses Mental Health Professionals/Psychologists.

I work with 2 different Doctors.

If a client presents with the issues described in the tagged post- she is always assigned to a Licensed Mental health Professional in our network with whom I work closely as the relationship coach. We work as a team to help different clients with different issues. I focus on life and relationship coaching, and they focus on different needs the clients may have. Based on our work together as a team, we assess clients. I lead an online community of thousands of women and what this woman above refers to as manipulative are the boundaries we have set in the community to keep women treating each other with a modicum of respect, and create a culture of tolerance and respectful, compassionate communication. Since the internet has had very little limitation on how people interact with each other- we have had to clearly set these boundaries in order for women to interact with each other in this way.

What I find unfortunate is that this woman is apparently a part of our community- which means she derives help from it, otherwise she would have left- yet she is filing complaints- anonymously- with no accountability to what she has filed. Please find below 3 examples of interviews with women who RAVE about our services and the impact, happiness, joy and fulfillment we have been able to support them in getting through our services. It is a shame that a woman would file a complaint without doing her due diligence- based off of one posting and a quick google search online- and stand

Fin the way of women receiving the help they need.

Our focus is helping women find great, loving, healthy partnerships. Find these examples below-
