Phone Coaching-Consultation-Counseling with the Stress Doc ™
The recent success of the Busy Women's
Retreat has generated a request for phone coaching-consultation-counseling
services; I am working with three clients and am ready to expand my
availability. (See testimonials below.) My expertise is based on years of
experience as a therapist and OD/team building and critical incident
consultant. My coaching is distinctly insightful and uncommonly empowering.
Of course, I continue to do unique keynote speaking and workshop programs as a
Here is a coaching testimonial from a Associate Certified Coach, Speaker, Stunt woman on the West Coast. (I'm on the East Coast.):
What growth has occurred since our work several weeks back. I am most certain you were a gift to me during those months of coaching together. As I remember, the most memorable character trait to me is your ability to blend courage and personal understanding; as one who has experienced suffering and risen to overcome. Only one who has experienced the depth, could so acutely and masterfully, handle the heart of one suffering, to guide, to point out, to encourage voice to feelings. Mark, Thank you, for your accurate assessment, time and again. I am grateful beyond words. I appreciate your flexibility in time zones and the presence with which you showed up is just solid. I enjoyed your humor that you inflected with such appropriateness. It means so much to have had you 'in my corner' through such an ordeal I found myself in.
My health has turned for the best and I deeply believe it has all to do with my state of mind. As Victor Frankl observed over 40 years ago: "Those who know how close the connection is between the state of mind of a man -- his courage and hope, or there lack of -- and the state of immunity of his body will understand that the sudden loss of hope and courage can have a deadly effect."
I am well. I have had several courageous conversations. There is movement. Don't be surprised if our paths cross again ~ smile.

March 14, 2010
Thank you so much for giving such a meaningful presentation at the Busy Women's Retreat here at Blue Mountain on March 5th and 6th. The subject matter, "Transforming Stress, Conflict and Change into Passion Power" was itself a very powerful theme, and you were able to so skillfully present and guide the group! This subject brought a lot of heavy emotions from the women to the surface. Your ability to help the women work through their issues, and even more importantly, your ability to give them tools with which to transform their stress was truly amazing. The participants in the retreat told me personally that they were very impressed with the way that you managed the group and that they took away many things that they can use in their everyday life. Your presentation helped them to evaluate their stressors differently, to see the positive in every stress, conflict and/or change. Moreover, you helped them to realize they are not alone, and you were so skilled at allowing and encouraging others to give feedback within the group!I am just so impressed with your organization, your presentation and your professionalism. I will certainly hire you again, and the women in this first group all said they look forward to working with you again at a future gathering! Thank you for your time, effort, intelligence and caring. You are truly a gifted workshop leader!!
