"Cynthia's course was life-changing for me. I struggled with over-reactivity and over-sensitivity in several of my closest relationships which made me feel like I had no control over myself. Using the tools and coaching from this course helped me shift from feeling like a petulant child to feeling like a wise adult in my most challenging personal relationships. I am forever grateful to Cynthia for her teaching and guidance."
"I can honestly say that working with Cynthia in her Intentional Communication program changed my life. As someone who hasn't had much trouble in life speaking my mind, I was unsure at first how impactful this course would be for me, but was gratefully surprised by the outcome. Not only did it equip me to have powerful conversations with others in my life, but it presented me with a safe space to first have those honest and sometimes hard conversations with myself. I've achieved all of the goals I set while working with her, and as a bonus have become an example to those around me on communication. I'm more confident, proud, and calm because of what I know now, and I feel more free not only in my ability to express myself but in creating a space where others feel safe to do the same."
"This course has been life changing. I was defensive, took on the emotions of other people and carried them with me for days, would be upset but not understand why and couldn't seem to express what it was. I would not listen to others when they spoke (I mean really listen). I would always try to insert my own opinion or advice- I'm certain most times it was never asked for. There needed to be a change. I found this course and the thing that really got me was that it described the course with the offer of helping but it didn't have any of those gimmicks or sales tactics. I think it simply said, if you are not ready to take this course this time, perhaps next time it is available you will be ready. Right there, I knew that was something unique so I signed up. I started out feeling reluctant, skeptical, and nervous that it would even work or help improve my communication. However, the course went step by step over the many weeks with the careful and patient guidance of Cynthia. Each week, there was something new to learn and the steps built upon each other and I learned how to put it into practice. I learned from one on one and group coaching sessions. I learned how to listen to my inner voice and identify the emotions that I was experiencing that I never before could identify. I learned to be gentle and forgiving with myself when I made mistakes and this flowed into my interactions with others. I am now in a different space and a different person. Am I perfect? No, but when I act in a way that is not kind, honest, or helpful, I know how to handle it and circle back with the person whom I have affected and resolve things. This is a far cry from what used to happen where I used to keep digging and digging that hole even deeper and making things worse, and then hide. Now there may be difficult conversations but they aren't at the same level of difficulty and I am able to negotiate through them much better now and am not left with that horrible feeling inside that used to linger on and on. If you decide to take this course, you will be grateful that you did and I am certain that you will find it one of the most worthwhile experiences of your life.' "
