Client Feedback

“Your Couples Workshop was like a life raft in the middle of a storm. We were constantly at “make or break” in our relationship up until we saw you. The workshop offered three days of calm , tranquil waters , soothing our pain. We really were lost at sea. But three days of intense focusing and learning about our problems , helped us on our healing journey.

It was like three days work that would have taken us three years, if we could have stayed together that long!
Now we have been in recovery for 12 months. We have a better relationship than we did before, we  are very close”.
