I appreciate the profession you are in, and just how much you give in helping us all reach our happy place. You amaze me how you never seem to miss a beat, your always so calm, caring, and understanding. I never feel like I am being judged in any way shape or form, and your sense of humor along the way makes me laugh frequently at you and myself! I am often hit upside the head with gratitude that I found you. You have brought so much peace and happiness to my life and for the people in it (my family uses your name quite often in reference to “What would Michelle say…” LOL).
Again Many Many Thanks

Thank you for the workshop this past weekend. I feel that I got some useful insights and more tools to help in navigating my relationships. Of particular use to me was the 3 to 5 times rule and the review of clarifying my values. I really appreciated your leadership of the group and the care and sensitivity you showed to each individual. It is refreshing to see counselling techniques applied in such a seemingly effortless way.

This has been another awesome workshop. Your clarity is, as always, amazing and I so appreciate your ability to gently dig down to what really matters. Each of us got our own personalized attention several times during the 3 days which I really appreciated. I’m coming away with a feeling of renewal and possibility and security that the future will be amazing!

All this to say that the workshop was awesome and insightful. I’ve coined this whole process “instigating insight” and this workshop has been foundational in learning the foundations of what it means to have a healthy relationship with others (and self too, which is inherent in that). The tips and tools are immensely helpful, as are your reminders that really, it all comes down to the questions “how am I feeling right now?” and “if it’s anything but peaceful, what do I need to do to feel at peace with what’s going on?”. It’s simple and straightforward and is effective no matter what stage in discovery I/we are in. And experiential, which I love. It’s all comes down to what I/we are experiencing and learning how to deal helpfully with that. I feel like Cedric has really opened my eyes to the richness of my experience in the world and with others. I’m really looking forward to applying and becoming more and more comfortable with these skills down the road.

In addition, the group dynamics was a great asset as well. You do a masterful job in leading the workshops but also bringing out the value of the group process. Thanks for your most excellent facilitation.

Just got back from a dinner with my friend and her partner and while riding back home, I reflected that it was simply a lovely evening. This feeling of peace after social situations is a new one for me, and one that I’ve noticed on more and more occasions since the 2nd workshop and hopefully will continue to do so following this 3rd workshop. I have no feelings of total inauthenticity, awkwardness, and anxiety that at one point would have me dive into food and coping into oblivion as soon as I walked through my door. I feel like I’m beginning to trust myself in identifying what I’m feeling and what I need, and slowly see the potential for myself to be able to communicate that (though, yes, this is still in progress to be sure).

Taking the phase 3 workshop for the second time was a great experience for me. I had new realizations and learned new things, being further along in my recovery process. Michelle is such a great facilitator always making space for everyone to be heard in a respectful way. I can’t imagine a safer setting to work on such delicate and intimate issues. She assists in such a way that, whether you’re working through your own process or listening to others work through theirs, it’s an invaluable learning experience. Having the support and understanding of a group of people contending with such similar obstacles, has been revolutionary for me. It was amazing to find that I was not alone with an issue I had accepted as a lifelong struggle and that there was a healthy solution for me. Not only has this process helped me in healing from use of food to cope, it has made all aspects of my life better. I would recommend a workshop with Michelle to any human being on this planet! Thank you Michelle

Thank you for making this opportunity available. Coming together with other people that use food to cope is not only comforting but motivating. You provided a platform where others like me could learn in party, by sharing our stories, experiences and challenges. This past weekend has not only given me further insight into myself as a person but has also left me feeling very inspired to be (as I am learning) the individual, wife, mom and friend I want and can be. I look forward to continuing on this journey with you as my guide and support. You are an incredible counselor, teacher and woman. I cannot thank you enough.
