Do you need to listen to, move and release emotions better?

“This shown me the enormous power of expressing my emotions. Not expressing my emotions appears to be what has been holding me back this whole time.” – Nicholas
“The work that Phoenix and Mike do is beyond your wildest dreams. A safe place to face that which scares you most and embrace that which empowers you and allows you to reconnect with your best self; one that you may have even forgotten. I feel so blessed that your paths have intertwined and will keep these magical souls in my heart and in my life” – Anthea Merson
“Phoenix and Mike created and held a space which allowed me to go where traditional psychotherapy has not allowed me to go. Thank you. I have immense gratitude and respect for the work you both do with both love and compassion that is so evident. I felt safe and was able to openly express my emotions without fear or judgement among my tribe. I’m filled with a deep sense of calm and leave with an open heart and a thirst for gathering in your safe presence again. – Angela Scott
“Phoenix and Mike do super transformative work that’s really changed my life. I just love the way Phoenix and Mike create safe space for people to share so honestly about our pasts, whether we’ve been hurt or done the hurting (and it’s always both), and to let our emotions run free and to really see each others humanness. It’s a sacred thing to behold. So sad how much pain there is…and so freeing to know it’s not just me.. thank you to Phoenix and Mike and to the whole beautiful group.” – Theo Kitchener
