Clients Say

The work isn’t contrived, dogmatic or one-sided. It’s a journey where I’m constantly reminded and welcomed to develop my own sense of wonder. Thanks to Terryl, I now see wonder as a powerful catalyst for change, an antidote to getting stuck, a perspective with endless facets that releases the jaded me to discover and embrace something different.


Terryl will find a way into your life as a gentle observer who finds the problem areas and from a non-judgmental, safe space, probes you to explore them. She helped me to identify the answers and solutions for myself, but I would not have found these on my own. She challenged me to reach a free zone in which I could identify why I act the way I do, why I think the way I do, why I limit myself the way I do. I moved from living in a constricted zone in my mind to a playground in which I can freely move from station to station and simply explore, with her present.


My husband and I were overflowing with gratitude for your insight and feedback in our last conversation. We’ve been on a long and challenging journey so far with our kids, and this past year especially has been a major turning point in how we are re-focusing ourselves. We really can’t begin to tell you how uplifting and valuable working with you has been, not to mention the lightness and FUN you bring to the process.
