Dear Phil,
Bruce and I would like to sincerely thank you for all that you have done and achieved with our beautiful son, Michael. When we first met and you told us that in 3 or 4 sessions you’d be able to change things dramatically, I must admit I felt it was almost impossible to achieve our goal in such a short time. Our main purpose in seeking your assistance, was to help Michael with his anger management situation. A month later, he is a calm teenager, who is thinking before rushing into an angry outburst, his heart is happy, he is laughing again and loving his relationship with his Dad and I. The cherry on top of things has been that our study sessions have been a bonding experience and have, so far, gone off so well. Thank you for bringing so much love and care to your sessions and for letting Michael feel he can be who he is with you. You are an extraordinary person Phil and we all look forward to future sessions with you, whenever necessary. Kind regards and a big thank you!’ Alex & Bruce

My son has had a fantastic experience with Phil. What began as a cry for help about discipline and respect from my child turned out to be such a life changing experience for all. The perspective Phil had, helped me to see myself, child and family in a way that is worth more than anything. The amount of love, acceptance, self respect and guidance he gave to my son gave him back his confidence and self-worth. Phil is a great listener and communicator, and is a terrific advocate for children. Phil helped by giving us strategies that we could use to more effectively communicate with and raise an independent and strong-willed little boy. We are still working on putting the tools that he gave us to use and appreciate his guidance and support in developing our understanding that parenting in a new way is a process that takes time and effort. We think everyone’s relationship with their kids can benefit by having a dedicated and motivated individual like Phil to talk to. I can truly say that the entire course of our lives has changed in a more accepting way of each other . I feel Phil and I have crossed each other’s path for a really good reason. Thank you.

Dear Phil,
I just wish to thank you for this workshop. Misha truly enjoyed it and wanted to come every Monday. Misha used to be very fearful at bedtime and wanted me to be lying next to her to fall asleep and then she would wake up 2-4 hours later because she was afraid. Well, its been 2 weeks and she goes to bed on her own and she sleeps right through. She even told me not to walk with her to class in the morning. I can finally leave her at the school gate on her own! I realised how this workshop has truly helped her because she said to her sister, very boldly I might add, that she needs to work through her fears and be a confident child! WOW!!! I am so glad that I took her to your workshop and I am truly grateful for all that you have done. Please continue your work and I will definitely be sending her and my other 2 monkeys on more of your workshops in the future. Kind Regards, Melanie

Hi Phil
Tools for Life has been very positive for Chloe. Her approach and outlook have changed from “I cant do it”, “it will never work out” and “Im afraid to do it” to a much more positive attitude – like chalk and cheese. She’s willing to try, gives it her best shot, believes she can be successful and wants to take responsibility. it really is unbelievable! Thanks so much for giving Chloe this opportunity, it is a big blessing to us all!

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Thank you Phil and team, Mikail absolutely enjoyed every moment! He cant stop raving about how awesome your camp was, and the activities! You have truly made some kids very happy! Mikail is truly hooked and can’t wait for the next one!
