I am doing much better now. And I think mostly it is because of you. The first time when I went to you I was very miserable and sad. If you had not guided me and supported me I don't think I would have been this strong. I am very strong now. I feel I have the strength to face the troubles that come in my life. Thank you so much for supporting me and listening to whatever I had to say. Talking to you made me feel a lot better. Thank you so much.

“Dear Lihi,
It’s been exactly a year since our last session and today I celebrate a whole year that is insomnia free!
I’d like to thank you once again for helping me learn how to manage my sleep instead of letting the lack of sleep manage my life!
Thank you so much!”

“Dear Lihi, We are so glad that even after a long journey full of failed attempts with all kind of life coaches and alternative therapists, we finally reached out to you!!! We now understand XXX behavior better, and know how to manage our lives and live with it while taking care of our own needs, staying respectful and loving to all members of our family. We often talk about our sessions with you and how you helped us become a mindful and peaceful family! May you be well, healthy and happy! Thank you!!!”

“The most significant part to me is that I feel I have made so much growth with this particular situation that I noticed the frustrating thing that happened but I immediately let it go. No elevated heart rate, no rise in body temp, no voices in my head going over it. I just let it be!…..I feel like I’m able to recognize moments of frustration or pain faster and I can take time immediately (even if it’s just a few minutes) to breathe, recognize and stop the negative talk in my head.”

“Dear Lihi,
I am writing to you to let you know I am doing well, and to thank you for your support!

The past weeks since my regular sessions ended, turned out to be hectic and stressful in terms of work, but I was able to manage how I was feeling by practicing mindfulness using the simple tools you taught. This meant I didn't have any major outburst because I am able recognize when I am triggered before I felt out of control...."

"Dear Lihi,
I am sorry for not connecting with you for such a long time. I am doing well, but do not really want to set the end of therapy sessions together. Perhaps we should talk about that when we meet again... I can hear you saying; "Worth the exploration" 🙂
