Marie Claire De Grouchy – Chief Operations Officer

On the surface I had it all. Inside I was at breaking point. Running my own successful business, son in private school, beautiful home…….. but breaking inside. Having spent the last 25+years cultivating a solid drinking habit to numb the deep seated unhappiness and negative thoughts I had finally reached my rock bottom. I didn’t know where to turn or what to do and then along came Stephen, recommended to me by my brother. I rarely write testimonials because I have never really had a reason too but what Stephen has done with me cannot be ignored and if by me writing this enables someone else who needs support and clarity to take the step with Stephen I can assure them that they will be forever happy they did.

Working with me collaboratively Stephen has helped me take a tactical 3 month break from alcohol and put it back in it’s rightful place. During this time he also worked with me to dissolve my limiting beliefs (of which there were many) as well as my negative thoughts, self-doubt and overwhelming guilt and fear. I cannot express enough how much lighter I feel and how I am living from a deep rooted place of happiness every day. Obviously this is work in progress but daily challenges no longer seem insurmountable. My relationship with my son and partner have never been better and life very much feels like living to the full again.

Each session was conducted over Skype and was therefore easy to fit into my hectic schedule. Plus Stephen was (and is) always there to respond to a text, without fail 364 days a year, there are not any people who truly offer and mean that. Thank you so much Stephen!
