Adam eased me into a new coaching technique, Havening, by taking me through the science of the model as well as the hands-on experiential process. His direct, empathetic and encouraging manner helped me ease into accepting information with which I was unfamiliar. He made the unknown, as well as the issue we were addressing, less challenging and anxiety-producing, and he eased my skepticism. His follow-up and genuine concern for a positive outcome are also commendable. He exposed me to a technique and tool that I expect will benefit me for years to come.i
