Eliya helped me to take a more active part in encouraging my son to actualize his potential. Thank you, Eliya, for helping me to become a better father to my son.

My wife and I were not a team. Much of our interaction left me frustrated and angry.
Eliya showed me how to reframe our interactions. I learned to acknowledge her point of view, to let her know that I hear her. I learned also how to say: “I have another way of looking at the situation. Let’s find a middle ground.” By working with Eliya in just a few sessions I was able to push back my tipping point. Interactions with my wife improved which helped us deal with family matters in a more productive way. Thanks, Eliya. Marc B.
Very recently I was confronted with a very difficult career choice. Eliya gently guided me through my different options, stacking up the pros & cons until my best choice became clear to me. I’m sure there are others who could have helped me, but Eliya was very, very quick in helping me reach a resolution which is why I’d recommend him as first choice. Ra’anan E.
I benefited from Eliya’s coaching expertise for nearly a year. His sensitive listening abilities and deep insightful comments help to guide me on the path I wanted to take. I highly recommend Eliyah to anyone longing to reach goals and realize his potential. Chaim W.
The five weeks course has been of great help to me and my wife. I loved the interaction and the frankness in which we dealt with various issues. Our daughter at that time did not want to talk much except in her own little baby language. We believed she had it within her to talk and through the various suggestions coming from the group we decided to push our daughter to ask for what she wanted. And thank G-d, it worked and she is now communicating in a very effective way even with her limited vocabulary. Yochanan.
