Are you ready to decrease stress and increase your happiness?
I have personally worked with both Kim and Hilary. Their work is effective, straightforward and full of compassion. I recommend them without hesitation.
Hilary and Kim bring compassionate clarity and understanding to their clients. Their tools are effective in building relationship bridges and fostering authentic communication. I found their approach to be refreshing and disarming. I would recommend them to anyone seeking improvement in their relationships, personal excellence or health.
I employed Kim Ward, Ph.D. and Hilary Stokes, Ph.D. for 8 years and found them to be a dynamic team dedicated to making a positive difference in the world. During that time they developed and managed the Psychology, Spirituality and Fitness Programs at Sanoviv Medical Institute. They demonstrated commitment, integrity and the utmost professionalism. I have great confidence in their capabilities and believe they will be an asset to any individual or organization.
Authenticity is the ideal word to describe my trusted colleagues, Dr. Hilary Stokes and Dr. Kim Ward. Their seminars, counseling, and publishing are leading edge in terms of scientific research and feature the synergistic power of mind, body, and spirit to enhance total health and fulfuillment for individuals, couples, teams, and organizations. They represent the very best in our field professionally and personally.
