ENDORSEMENT from clients
"I first came to see Sony several years ago while dealing with a number issues flowing out of my cancer diagnosis and the emotional aftermath of numerous treatments. She is very insightful in guiding me to the most appropriate path forward and has at times referred me to other professionals whose work complements Sony’s beautifully. She is a beacon of hope, a true treasure!! I am now cancer free, and I am more emotionally balanced than I have ever been!"
“When I first came to see Sony, I was tired, worried, and couldn’t see anything bright or optimistic in my future. With her help, I have allowed my hopes and dreams back into my consciousness. I feel lighter, have more energy, and life looks exciting and wonderful again.”
“When I came to you, I was not sleeping, and had terrible anxiety all the time. I am so grateful for all the help you have given me. I am amazed at how quickly you led me to exactly where I needed to go to begin deeply healing. With your infinite compassion, gentle spirit and finely honed skills, you have guided me through the anxiety I have been living with for decades! Thank you Sony from the bottom of my heart!!”
“When I came to Sony, I was lost, overwhelmed by grief after losing my wife, and without hope. Sony provided a safe place to talk, wisdom that helped me understand what I was feeling and tools that allowed me to begin to heal. She was insightful and thoughtful, gentle and compassionate. A good listener, Sony showed me a path out of the darkness and into the light. I am grateful for all she has done for me.”
"When my wife Hélène was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago, Sony helped her find her own path through it. I don’t know the details but Hélène often told me how thankful she was to have found Sony. Sadly, Hélène died last October. Sony visited Hélène in our home the day before she died. Hélène was overjoyed to see her and to spend time with her. I came to fully realize then what a huge guiding hand Sony had in helping Hélène be so positive. At Hélène’s celebration of life Sony led a meditation and spoke so movingly of Hélène, she made us feel positive about Hélène in her new adventure. Sony later helped me with my grief in counselling sessions, and in particular by helping me to better understand dying. I now regret not getting to know Sony sooner. She’s a caring, loving and clearly skilled counsellor who helped Hélène and me when we needed it most. I’m so grateful to her, and I recommend her every chance I get."

“Thank you so very much Sony for our very productive Shamanic session. You do incredible work! I came to you feeling unsettled and anguished without knowing what to do next with my life. In one miraculous session, you gave me my 'soul' back. I feel more grounded and have direction. I am so grateful!“
“I instantly felt stronger as soon as I stood up to walk out your office door. I continue to feel the incredible energy…"
“Thought you’d be interested in a couple of things that have happened this week following the Shamanic session: The dent that was left in my breast when the cancerous material was removed has filled out so the dent is almost indiscernible. My appetite has decreased dramatically [A good thing]."
“Hearing the words, ‘You have cancer’, spurred me to deal with some long standing personal issues and finding Sony was a godsend. Not only is she is empathetic and intuitive, but her skill with various techniques brought results very quickly.In just a few sessions, Sony helped me uncover and lay to rest some unhealthy thought patterns and deeply ingrained issues I struggled with for decades. With her warm, caring and intuitive nature, she helped me to resolve those issues. Now, I’m at peace with myself, the cancer is gone, and I’m able to actively support my healing and recovery.”
