Weekend Intensive Testimonials

“I wanted to thank you for the intensive. The work that you have done has helped me so much. It has allowed me to change my expectations of myself, my mother, and the world around me. I came away from the intensive overwhelmed, but now I realize that it will move me into deeper layer of my recovery. Thank you!”

- M.

"Since my intensive weekend in June, things have been moving along. I really got to the bottom of my issues during our session. It has enabled me to feel much more solid and peaceful as I work through the steps. The giraffe club provides support and encouragement as I continue to work through painful situations and my struggles with self doubt."

”Thank you for taking the time to meet me for an intensive weekend experience. I certainly walked away with a lot of clarity. I have been craving that information for so long and now I have it. Hearing it directly from you certainly made a huge impact on me. I felt very on-track and clear in my direction when I left. To sum up my experience with you, I can describe it as this:
Imagine a person who has an ailment and has gone to the doctor or multiple doctors for years to get help and can never get the right diagnosis or treatment. They continue to live with the ailment for years feeling like there is no hope, no resolution and at times they are either a bit crazy or selfish for wanting to feel better, yet never quite giving up on finding an answer. Then one day they go to a doctor who understands the problem, diagnoses the problem and tells that person there is a solution. There is an actual name for it and a reason for why they have felt this way. After all the years of dealing with it, they now realize that there truly is a cure for the ailment and there is hope, understanding and relief. That is how I would describe my experience with you, Dr. McBride.”
