"This testimonial serves as an accurate, honest depiction of the experience I have had regarding the coaching services I received from working with Michelle Neaves. Parenting is arguably the most important job in the world, and it can throw you all sorts of twists and turns that can be difficult to navigate and leave you feeling helpless and incapable. Michelle has literally changed my life through her coaching and guided me through the adjustment of parenting children who have been through layers of traumatic experiences. With her knowledge in the neuroscience that reaches deep to the root of problems that create behaviors and reactions, she armed me with such a valuable and immense artillery of tools and teachings that when implemented, entirely flipped the switch. Each week she would give me a lesson to focus on and install into my family’s routine, the next week we'd discuss what worked and what didn’t (although I have to say that every single suggestion, she gave me was well digested and worked wonders). She created a safe environment where I felt like I could truly be honest about every aspect of where I was succeeding and where I needed improvement and she did not make me feel judged in any way. There is no price I wouldn’t pay for the value I have gotten out of my experience with Michelle. It has been entirely life-changing and has not only drastically improved the environment in which I am raising my step-children so that they are able to play, rest and grow, but also in my confidence as a mother and step-mother and a person in general. It is hard to open up, and it is hard to be a parent; I urge you to connect with Michelle to gain the brilliant insights she has to share that truly move mountains where home life is concerned. I cannot express enough the ease of mind I now have moving forward with the skills I have gained. It truly is ‘All Connected’. Thank-you Michelle!" - Kiley
“I would recommend Michelle’s services to anyone…there have been times that it feels like my life is spinning out of control and Michelle helped me make sense of myself and put things back into perspective and made everything feel more manageable again”. - Sheryl
"Michelle is not only a fantastic coach but she is also one of my favourite people. She is smart and funny and makes you feel safe and comfortable so it is easy to open up and get to the root of the problem. Her techniques and words are effective and unique. I could go on, but in short, I would definitely recommend Michelle, she has helped me immensely and I know she would help you too.” - Kristie
“I have been to ‘traditional therapy’ for most of my life and it has not helped. 'It's All Connected', well, Michelle, brings a different and effective approach. I am getting the help that I need to heal from past trauma that I have never had before with a new perspective of myself I didn't even know was needed. I have learnt so much about myself which then allowed me to 'see' everyone around me - as Michelle likes to say - through a new lens. I am forever grateful to her coaching style, her humour makes the journey fun too". - Bonnie-Anne
May 11th, 2019 - “My name is Angela, I am 34 yrs old and I have a 5 year old boy. I am a single mother to a handsome smart little boy. I have unintentionally emotionally hurt my little boy from my addiction with alcohol. In August 2018, my son was put into foster care. This was at my lowest point. My worst nightmare. I failed as a parent. I started work with Michelle in November 2018. Michelle has helped me grow immensely as a woman, a sister, a mother and as a friend. She has helped me understand why I was using alcohol as a way to cope from my own traumas as a child. The work I have done with Michelle has been emotionally hard, exhausting and rewarding. I have changed my parenting style. My son doesn’t run the house and he tries. Oh how he tries. I’m no longer feeling guilty of saying “you can’t have a brand new toy every week or candy etc”. I was absolutely ‘never’ going to say “no” to my boy…inevitably, raising him just like how the males in my family were. Michelle has helped me in so many ways. I don’t think she knows how many. For example: Confidence in myself and decision making, healing from my experience of abuse, motivation to make memories with my boy, to be more engaged with my boy (less screen time), healing from my 2nd pregnancy, being non judgemental when I told her the gritty parts, and calling me out when I would try to not discuss a topic because it was painful emotionally. There is so much more. The old Angela was drinking 4 times a week, had suicidal ideation, was an extreme selfharmer, and she was hurting inside awful. The new Angela is a recovering alcoholic, is on proper medication and new coping skills and good insights for my triggers, and I no longer self-harm. I accepted my traumas as experiences, I am still growing to love myself even more. And I am looking forward to my future with my little man. Thank you Michelle. We (especially I) love you.

"It’s All Connected is a complete LIFE-SAVER, well Michelle is lol. I am a strong independent woman who believed my ducks were all in a row in every aspect of my life until they weren’t. Something shifted in me; I was second-guessing myself; suddenly feeling overwhelmed, disorganized, short-tempered, and stressed. Home and work-life were ultimately impacted to the point my boss even brought me into his office to ask me whether everything was okay. It was after that ‘meeting’ that I decided something had to change. I started working with Michelle and WOW, I had no idea I didn’t know myself like I thought I did. She was easy to work with, her humour and the straight but supportive way she spoke with me, giving me “New Lenses” to see through, had the biggest impact on my life as a mother, a wife, a manager, work colleague and a friend. I can not thank Michelle enough for this life-changing 12 months I spent working with her. Honestly, I don’t know where I’d have ended up if our paths had not crossed. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! " - Cynthia
