“Phoenix and Mike just wanted to say thanks for holding such a safe space for the 6 week personal development group. It was great to meet people and build trust to share how life has been for myself during the COVID experience. I was feeling very isolated so an option to connect was great. I always feel nervous around joining groups but the both of you work so well together holding space for people. I looked forward each week to connecting with the group and each week I took something away to support myself. I loved the way we could share with each other and how flexible you both were to support what was coming up in the group and how adaptable you both where. I loved that anything was welcome and that I could cry laugh or feel any emotions l was feeling. I love that nothing was too much. It was pretty special and I’m looking forward to the next one. Feeling grateful to all involved thanks so much.” – Liz

“I came to innate wisdom connection knowing that something was very wrong in the way I live my life. I was miserable, angry, alone. Blaming others for my problems. Feeling very stuck. Desperate for help. Phoenix and Mike have given me tools to understand myself and my problems so much better than I could ever have imagined. Using these tools I have been able to begin unlocking the chains of my social conditioning wrapped around me. They have helped me realise I can’t keep blaming other people for my problems. That most of my problems are within me, how I see things, the situations that I create, the parts of myself which I reject and try to bury.” – 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
