My husband and I are happily married in large part because of Michael
Bock. Getting marriage counseling with Michael was like going back to
school and taking a personal tutorial in "Making your Marriage Thrive".
Living in a remote area in Central America, my husband and I needed to
find someone who could help us over the phone, which Michael did. He
was excellent. We use the tools and wisdom he taught us on a daily
basis. As a result, our marriage is strong and keeps getting stronger.
We continue to be challenged but surmount those challenges relatively
quickly and with more laughter.
Last week I was talking with a friend who is teetering on the edge of
divorce. This was a friend who had encouraged my husband and me to get
counseling. Now the tables are turned. She said that when she told
her daughter that they were planning on getting counseling, she held us
up as an example. The daughter was flabbergasted that we had ever needed it.

I wanted to send you this note of deeply felt appreciation for your amazing
heart and skills as a healer. Your many years of rich experience and
voracious appetite for learning have truly served you and your clients well.
I love your eclectic style, open-mindedness, and flexibility.
Being able to work with you by phone has saved me from going it alone, since I simply
cannot get to you on a frequent or regular basis. If anything, the phone
sessions are more effective, since I do not have to follow them with a long
drive while distracted by the profound after-effects of our sessions together.
I find your healing skills to be very on-target for my
relationship, body, and work issues but really felt things accelerate for me
when you introduced the tapping routines. Combined with the other healing
work we do, tapping gently and quickly uncovers hidden pieces to my life's
riddles and helps me to discharge much of the emotional burdens I hold
without huge investments of processing time and energy. I'm all for the
short and easy path, when available.
Most of all, I want to thank you for
your total presence when we work together. I can feel the quality and level
of your attention when we work togetherregardless of the methodand
attribute much of my progress to that alone. You are a healer, Michael, not
just from the skill level of things, but in the essence of your being. I
feel so lucky to have you as an ally on my journey.

I began seeing Michael in a period of major transition
in my life. With his support, this life transitiondivorceturned
into a transformation. I woke up from
my trance and discovered how much more I was than
simply the roles I playedwife, mother, and Silicon
Valley executive. The work we did together on growing
beyond the religion of Motherhood has been especially
profound for me.
I continue to see Michael for help living with a
chronic health condition. My life had turned into a constant exercise in pain,
suffering, fear, and depression. With the tools Michael
has taught me and the ongoing support he provides,
the balance in my life has shifted to more joy and
happiness than struggle. I am no longer trapped in my conditioned responses and
can make conscious choices about how I respond to
pain. It doesn't have to drag me down into fear and
suffering. I now have hope of a future that is not
ruled by this negativity.
As challenges come up in my life, I know that Michael
is there for me with love, compassion, respect, and
practical tools. With deep gratitude I fully recommend
his services and wish that everyone could have this
kind of support.

I met Michael five years ago when my husband and I were struggling with the end
of our marriage. Michael counseled ustogether and separately. He helped us to establish and
keep a kind and loving relationship, despite and throughout the divorce.
I have recently returned to counseling with Michael for my own personal growth and
change. He has helped guide me to a place in my life where I have found courage, happiness,
and peace with myself and in my relationships.
