Testimonials From Counselling Clients
Clients say that as a result of seeing Steven, they experience themselves as having a renewed sense of purpose, direction, more freedom, peace, energy, vitality and a stronger connection to their own life force.
“Steven is a detailed, careful, sympathetic and respectful consultant/therapist, who takes a no-nonsense approach to his work, but who is very adept at recognizing the goals and aims of his clients. He has a clear sense of how to help others reach those goals with a minimum amount of stress while developing a positive self image in pursuit of a worthy and fulfilling lifestyle. He can be an excellent help to virtually any company or business that needs to empower itself and its employees. He also has excellent skills in dealing with major life traumas. Though he does not give up easily when confronted with a challenge, and he is an excellent therapist for a wide variety of issues and problems, if he cannot help someone, he will be the first to recognize it and pass one on to someone with the required skills.”
“Steven is a caring, bright therapist. His joy of life comes through in his work. His experience with a wide variety of people in many contexts has taught him how to be creative and adaptive as a teacher and as a therapist. He loves racing cars and he brings that same kind of energy to his work – both deal with change and the unknown. Steven’s job is to help people navigate through their process of change.”
“It takes work, because it is a conscious effort for me each time there is a turn in the path, but it is getting easier to create more of what makes my heart sing as I am more aware, more conscious. I’ve told myself in the past that I am just not good with directions and either given up and turned back or made many wrong turns to get to my destination. Now that I feel armed with a “map”, there is a knowing that with my new awareness that it’s not just the destination, but what I experience in every day living that matters. So much of what I gave my energy to in the past, like anger, drama, complaining, is no longer in the forefront. As always ‘THANK YOU! Thank you!’ It IS really that simple. Amen. From someone who’s been there”
“Unbelievable! It is amazing how sometimes the answer is there even before the question is finished.”
“Learning to listen to my heart has been an emotional and physical lifesaver.”
