A Poet Emerges
"Never having considered myself creative, it was an eye opener to discover that I love to write poetry. Val has supported me in this effort for more than two years, listening to my work and offering reactions and suggestions. We work on emotional blocks as well. I am now in the process of seeking a publisher for my first small collection of poems. Working with Val is a journey, often a surprising one. It's never what you think it is. Dare to find out! I thank Val for sharing his wonderful gifts of insight and humor."

Saved Invaluable Time
"Val's keen sense of intuition can save invaluable time while working through issues that are sometimes hidden, or just beneath the surface. When he touches me with his insights I am often moved to tears because I know he has "hit the nail on the head" and it can be a wonderful eye-opening experience to have this issue come into my awareness.
If you are really wanting to get past your issues, and you are ready to stop reinforcing your ongoing old patterns, Val is the person to work with. I find that he is able to support me while not supporting my old patterns. I like the fact that he doesn't let me spend lots of time dwelling on old issues, or talking about the past, but instead helps me to move to a new place of being.
The focus is on a positive direction and a respectful, accountable loving way of being with myself and with others. Usually after a session I am left with an uplifting feeling of empowerment which always indicates to me that good work has taken place. He is truly a spiritual healer of a different caliber."

"Val has made an impact on my life and that of my family, and we will all reap the benefits for the rest of our lives."
Stephen Eaton, Oak Point, TX
"Val's phenomenal abilities go beyond traditional counseling and coaching. His work has saved me a lot of time because he cuts right through the gunk to what is most valuable and important. He can hear me so much better than I can hear myself--it's startling! Every area of my life has dramatically improved as a result of working with him. I am eternally grateful for his masterful guidance."

Dream Come True
"I first called Val after I began to take flying lessons. During my lessons I consistently experienced horrible, paralyzing fear on every final approach and landing - my legs would begin to shake and I would get so upset, I'd have to end lessons prematurely. I called him because I knew if I did not get some help, I would have to give up my dream of being a pilot.
I'm totally amazed and delighted with his work. After only one session I went back to flying and employed the techniques we talked about. One month later I'm still flying every week and I'm able to enjoy the entire experience. Not only have I mastered my landings, but also my instructor says I'm ready to solo. I can't thank him enough for finding the exact right way to touch my psyche. I'll be back!"
Mary Becquet, MBA, Reseda, CA
"Blessings too numerous to mention have flowed to me as a result of knowing Val Logan and his lovely wife, Jeanette. I'll share a few: From Val I learned, its ok to have my feelings and its ok to express them in a loving, constructive way. Anyone, but especially we middle-aged guys who modeled our lives on John Wayne and Clint Eastwood, can benefit from Val's exceptional work."
Rob Christie, Tiburon, CA
Wall Came Tumbling Down
"Wow! Val helped me get to the root of my issues. First I felt a burden being lifted from my shoulders, then the wall I had built came crumbling down. Would I see him again? ABSOLUTELY!"

47 Yr. Old Relationship Saved
"Val has been the essential ingredient in my recovery from depression. I was really in a bad place when we first started working together. My perceptions were distorted, my emotions were painful and disruptive and my relationship with Tom was being sorely tested. Val was helpful by providing the language I needed to express my needs and what I really wanted to have happen in a given situation.
He was able to guide Tom and I through some powerful emotions related to a past in which we did not communicate clearly. I was really in a bad place when we first started working together. My perceptions were distorted, my emotions were painful and disruptive and my relationship with Tom was being sorely tested. Val was helpful by providing the language I needed to express my needs and what I really wanted to have happen in a given situation. We had not resolved some basic conflicts over a forty-seven year period. Instead they were buried, unresolved, to fester and erupt over and over. Being retired we had nothing to distract us, no where to hide. That way of dealing with our conflicts was causing increased pain and tension. Val has helped me deal more effectively with those issues.
He also helped Tom face himself more honestly, and as a result his behavior improved. Val's support for me personally during our joint sessions was key to my recovery. Val was able to communicate with Tom with such clarity that he could "hear" what I was saying, while also being supportive of his needs. Val, thank you so much!"

Free At Last
"Dungeons and gilded cages are all I knew. Some joy along with sorrow and pain so true. Then Val showed me that tomorrow can bring New laughter and hope if only I sing. The songs that in my heart I hold, And let go of emotions and wishes of old. So now I am becoming the river that flows. A creative, prosperous Gypsy-lady who glows. Free at last, free at last. Flying high, away from the cages of the past."
