Testimonials for Michael Soth’s training

Michael was amazing, daring and inspiring

At last – a training day that unpicks a counselling scenario almost breath by breath.

Stimulating and exciting. Plenty of food for thought. Michael was engaging, flexible and accessible. I enjoyed his humour and humility as well as his ability to challenge common ‘rights and wrongs’ without shaming.

This workshop was beyond my imagining, totally involving. I felt drawn in, respected, and invited to become part of it all

Michael Soth is an original: unconventional, a bit of a tour de force, refreshing

Extraordinary! I love the way Michael thinks and works

Michael Soth is excellent. A paragon of effective educational approaches

Michael is very engaging and thinks outside the box. He has a very refreshing approach to when we hit difficulties in the work
