“Hey Geoff, thank you for steering me through the maze of pain and agony over those early days of parenting. You have helped more than anyone I ever sought help from. I am going to write some affirmations down to remind myself of what you said. I am so lucky to be referred to you! God bless you for the truly wonderful work you are doing.” ~ Saroja M.
“I used to feel overwhelmed easily and just avoided dealing with things. Life would get challenging and I would try to find a way to check out. It was debilitating, to say the least, and it made me feel terrible about myself. The counselling I received at New History taught me to look at things in a way that I could deal with them. I didn’t realize how strong and capable I actually am. Thanks.” ~ Lee P.
“The personalized professional development I received with Geoff was more than I expected. He helped me clear up the areas in my life that got in the way of being a great leader.” ~ Luc
“Geoff has provided inspiring presentations on psychotherapy, cross-cultural counselling, and professional standards to graduate students at City University with very gratifying results.

Geoff combines outstanding presentation skills with innovative applications of psychological principles.”

“While working for Aboriginal Health/Vancouver Coastal Health, I was asked to set up conflict resolution training that fit our team’s specific needs. The sessions Geoff prepared for our group were reflective of who were as a team and the work environment and systems we are a part of. The training provided us with a greater understanding of conflict and the dynamics which form. We walked away with hard skills to use in our professional lives and these skills helped improve team communication, varying dynamics, and overall well-being. I am so happy I had the opportunity to take one of Geoff’s workshops. The space was relaxed, inviting, while the activities were engaging. I felt very comfortable and safe sharing with my team. ”
