"Thank you again for a heart provoking session.
I feel hopeful and energised every time I leave."
Sarah, Bristol, 2012
"There was a clear benefit for me after the empathy session. I was able to re-live the situation, make peace with it and accept it gently, knowing I can do better next time."
Patricia Alexandra, Portugal, 2012
"I really feel like you helped me climb to a new level of being "me". I've been feeling so light and whole since we talked!
I dearly hold the realization that my state of mind is extremely important when I interact with my children.
I now also realize that a lot of my worry about my son might have a counterproductive effect on him. Being "rooted" and centered is what I am working with now. It's the general theme of our work that I'm cherishing."
Cynthia S. 2012
"Thank you so much for helping me with this. What I needed today was understanding of what I am facing, to find my centre about all of this, to know my emotional bearing in the situation. Then I can find a confidence in myself to deal with it. It was so lacking. I had sought all kinds of advice from friends, family, even legal advice but none of it really hit the mark. So, once again, thank you!"
Helen, Manager, Bristol, 2011
"I have felt fully seen, heard and accepted by you and see this as an integral part of finding myself embracing a level of self acceptance that has long remained elusive to me.
In particular I have found you to offer a deep willingness to meet me as I am, with care and curiosity as to how I personally experience the world and too with insightful reflections and offerings that have allowed me to find rest and a sense of hope."
Gayano Shaw, 2011
"Dorota offered to do weekly sessions and these proved a lifeline during a difficult time. I was able to speak with her honestly about how I was feeling and what I was experiencing.
Having someone to listen to me with sensitivity and compassion was important to me.
I have stopped crying everyday. I have been able to express my needs in a sensitive and peaceful way, so that I am understood and heard, and met with a peaceful response."
Judy Lancaster-Bowen, 2011
"I was experiencing an ongoing physical and emotional sensation of fear which I could not explain. In our one to one session you helped me explore these feelings in such a gentle, sensitive and caring way that I was able to connect with hurts from my past and release them.
I felt incredibly safe and nurtured and as a result was able to feel the emotions honestly and cry freely while at the same time feeling cared for and accepted.
You helped me understand my need to be more tender with myself and encouraged me to put this into practice. I am very grateful for your love and care. Thank you."
Helen Gialias, Homeopath, 2011
"It is a requirement in my work that I receive supervision in the form of breathwork. I first met Dorota at a practitioners meeting and was impressed with her calm perspective on issues that arose there. It was clear that Dorota was coming from a different place.
Several months later we agreed to work together. I have gone deeper in the sessions than I thought would be possible. Because Dorota is so unthreatening I have been willing to open up to myself, in her company, at a more profound level than before in my work with a therapist."
Doug Sawyer, 2011
"I asked Dorota to help me reach an understanding in relation to a time when my (then adolescent) daughter had thrown an (unknown to me) party at my shared house and many personal items belonging to my close friend ended up stolen by gatecrashers.
With Dorota's support and through a process of empathy, I was able to come to terms with unresolved feelings of guilt and shame towards myself. This experience helped me see that I can make different choices about how I view myself when negative experiences occur in my life.
I value Dorota's ability to listen and hold on to those threads of information which have emerged when I have been grappling with the detail of an issue. I have often received such clear reflections from Dorota. I also respect her impartiality and cherish her warmth and kindness."
Bryn Regan, 2011
"I would love more people to benefit from knowing Dorota. The extra sensitivity she's got gave me a sense of being very safe and welcomed. I could express myself in my own time and come to recognise that I need more nurturing.
I appreciated seeing nurturing behaviour modelled in the way Dorota spoke to me and I am now more able to give it to myself."
R.C, Aromatherapist from Dorset, 2009
"I appreciate very much your transparency and integrity. These gifts of yours generate deep connection and trust in me, and I thank God and you for that. When you empathised with my vulnerability and fear about my actions being misconstrued and judged, I experienced relief and gratitude."
Phil Kingston, 2008
"The experience that I have had with Dorota has been wonderful.
From the beginning I felt safe with her and was able to speak openly and honestly with her.
I trusted her wholeheartedly."
Jo from Southampton, 2004
"I found my sessions with Dorota very helpful and encouraging
because she created such a loving, accepting and peaceful space, together with a clear
perception of what was needed to take me forward in my life."
Val , mother of Mel, grandmother of Phoenix and Coral, 2003
"Something I've taken away with me is a sense of your ability to connect, which I feel has rubbed off onto me a little. I particularly appreciated your authenticity and your wanting to make the workshop as good an experience for us as you could."
D. Fawell, "From Punch & Judy to Compassionate Communication", 2010
"I know I wanted to stretch my boundaries before I came but the space you held for the group made it possible for me to really feel safe to do so."
P.S, Alexander Teacher from Wales, "Lets Talk about Intimacy", 2010
"I appreciated the way you seemed to listen and respond with great care and attention to people's needs - I felt relaxed with you because I was able to trust that we would be safe."
Sally from Dorchester, "Introduction to Win-Win Communication", 2009
"My partner and I regularly attend Dorota's weekly group for open, honest and progressive communication.
As a result, I'm experiencing a deeper level of expression with people I care for. I enjoy Dorota's company and attitude towards life."
Alexandria, "Win-Win Communication Group", 2008
