Geoff is a great cheerleader, coach, and supporter…
When I started working with Geoff, I was feeling stuck on pretty much every front in my life – where I lived, my work situation, and my relationship. I didn’t know how I’d gotten there, but I sure knew I didn’t want to carry on in the same way. I felt overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start making changes.
Working with Geoff was instrumental in helping me get unstuck. I learned how to start trusting my intuition and act on it more often, instead of justifying choices that weren’t making me happy. Geoff is great at helping to “chunk down” problems into practical, actionable steps. I felt comfortable being honest with him about things that things I usually don’t want to share. He is a great cheerleader, coach, and supporter.
I’m now living in a new place, with a new job, and in a new relationship. I believe that these are all a result of my work with Geoff. To say I’m grateful – and that I endorse him as a coach – is an understatement!

We Found Our Way To A Deeper Intimacy With Each Other…Even After Decades Together
Diane and I thought we were a well-oiled machine with kids, work, household chores, etc. In all the distractions of life, we didn’t notice the parts we were afraid to see, the parts that were holding us back from the intimacy and connection we were longing for with each other. Diane was often feeling disconnected from her power, frustrated, and not sourced by the relationship. I was overworked, not taking care of myself, and not often emotionally present or available. Over the time we’ve been working on our marriage with Geoff – including one-on-one and couples coaching work, his Extraordinary Journey Back To You workshop, his Growing Up In Your Relationships workshop, and his new Re-Ignite Your Relationship Workshop that we did in May 2011 – we have found our way to deeper intimacy and honesty with each other, along with gaining a new feeling of incredible possibility and trust in our relationship. In Geoff’s latest workshop, we stepped boldly into places we hadn’t realized we were holding back from each other. Through several acts of honesty and vulnerability, guided by Geoff, we discovered that we could trust ourselves and the relationship to hold whatever came up…in a spirit of adventure and growth. If you are looking, either individually and/or as a couple, for more intimacy, passion, and possibilities in your life and relationships, we highly recommend working with Geoff.

We Learned A Fresh, Straightforward And Open-Hearted Approach To Expressing Our Love & Honoring Our Differences…
We had already felt like our relationship was in really good shape, but also wanted to proactively explore how it could grow and thrive even more. Over the course of a weekend we spent with Geoff, he was masterful in his leadership. He brought great insight into and clarity on the dynamics of relationships that we have been putting to great use in our relationship. He also beautifully held the space of the workshop – and all of us in it – with caring, sensitivity, and warmth. The intimacy and depth of the sharing – which opened up places of vulnerability and risky communications for all of us – was tempered with a humor and playfulness that just made it safer for us to go where we discovered we needed and wanted to go. We learned a fresh, straightforward, and open-hearted approach to expressing our love and honoring our differences. As a result, our relationship continues getting stronger and deeper. We encourage all couples who are wanting to take their relationship to the next level to go for it with Geoff! It is absolutely worth it!

We now savor each day & dream big towards the future…
“We have taken Geoff’s workshops (and hosted them), as well as doing couples work with him…all gifts that we will always cherish and that we recommend to any couple. The work enabled us to celebrate our individual talents while providing us with the tools to understand and accept our human-ness. Geoff creates a space that is open, caring, and inviting, giving us the freedom to express ourselves and confront our fears. He is also good at guiding us through the tender emotional areas we might otherwise shy away from, but need to confront in order to grow. We can’t recommend the gifts of his work highly enough.”

We Have Had Many More Experiences Of Pure Love With Each Other, Even In The Most Challenging Circumstances…
Geoff has been an instrumental and monumental figure in our lives. I’ve worked with Geoff at various times over the last 15 years, and every time I do, the impact the work has had on my life has been profound…every time! I hope he isn’t expecting to retire! Working with Geoff has meant discovery, adventure, and realizations that have been so instrumental in helping me sort things out, it doesn’t even seem like it’s work. What seemed difficult to get through – emotional blockages and spiritual challenges – turned themselves into a delightful play. With my husband and I, Geoff not only helped give us a sense of what a healthy relationship feels like, but we chose him to marry us.
Geoff has helped us both face our fears, together, about relationships. He has helped us dispel negative past experiences that pop up and try to taint the present moment. He provided a safe space to speak our fears out loud in a way we hadn’t been able to with each other previously. In doing that, we have had many more experiences of pure love with each other, even in the most challenging of circumstances. We don’t know how he does it, but Geoff is an expert at bringing you back to your true home – your heart. We are a stronger, happier, and more mature couple (and people) today because of Geoff’s support and keen insights.

“I Love Myself Now In Ways I Don’t Think I Ever Did Or Could Before….”
I was having a very difficult time in my life; in short, I was miserable and feeling a bit lost and desperate. Geoff’s work was a wonderful healing and loving experience for me. I’ve done 40 years of healing work for myself, so healing work is not new to me. I gained deep insights into myself. I am now much better at taking time for me, listening to my wants, needs, and my child-self’s desire to play and have fun. I also am recovering from funky moods, depression, loneliness, and anxiety much quicker. My own healing and growth has been an integral part of the fabric of my life. And, my life’s work is helping people heal from the influence of childhood. Geoff’s work is psychologically sound and is spiritually orchestrated. If you’re in any kind of pain from your past, I would gift yourself with this tender, loving experience. Call Geoff and explore your needs and his work. There is no pressure from Geoff. Only love and acceptance.

“I’ve Always Gotten Way More From Him Than I Ever Did In Therapy…”
I attended Geoff’s “Extraordinary Journey Back To You” workshop back in 2002. Since then, I’ve gone to him over the years for “tune-ups.” I’ve always gotten way more out of the coaching sessions with him than I ever did from talk therapy. I was also pleased to realize I saved money with him, because he drills so much deeper, so quickly, compared to regular therapists. He doesn’t just let you tell your story in different ways for many sessions, just offering suggestions here and there. No, he gets to the heart of the matter in a brilliant way. He has an uncanny ability to really “get” every single person he works with. Isn’t that what we all really want? To feel gotten? Well, Geoff does this like no one else. I have noticed lately, that when friends or family ask me for psychological advice, I’m parroting Geoff in the “counsel” that I give. I have learned so much from him, that the advice that comes naturally to me, to offer to others, is closely tied to what I’ve learned from Geoff. I have continually recommended his services (and continue to) for 10 years now. The value I got from working with him continues to flow into my life.

I Know What Happiness Truly Feels Like Now & For The First Time In My Life, I Feel FREE!…
Who knew, something as innocent as my kids asking me, “Tell us a funny story from your childhood,” and realizing, even after racking my brain, I couldn’t think of one, would lead me to Geoff’s work? This journey would ultimately transform my life — a life that was happy, with an amazingly supportive husband, enlightened children, and healthy parents/sisters, but deeply guarded.
That single question led me to face my sad and sometimes disturbing childhood memories and feelings head-on, shatter them into a million tiny pieces and release them from my being — memories that no longer suited my adult life and ultimately bogged me down. After my work with Geoff, I now know what happiness truly feels like. I have escaped from my internal prison of self-consciousness, self-doubt, and fear of deep connection, and for the first time in my life, I feel FREE.
Free to be myself, in all my glory, with all of my magic and potential. Free to explore a world without hesitation and second-guessing. Free to discover and connect with the magic in others. My conversations are genuine and uninhibited, I think less, I play more games, I laugh harder, I sing out loud, my voice carries. I matter, and I’m not afraid to take center stage. I would strongly recommend this experience to anyone who’s lost their voice or their way and is ready to reclaim their dreams.

“I Recommend Geoff To Anyone Who Wants To Maintain A Loving, Passionate Heart…”
Geoff is, above all, emotionally gifted and remarkably intuitive. His uniquely balanced personality, personal integrity, and extraordinary ability to be present and actively listen with empathy allows you to feel heard, validated, and enjoy a sense of comfort with yourself like no other life coaching or personal awareness mentoring experience I’ve ever had. Geoff quickly became a trust-worthy companion and personal guide through my amazing and exciting journey to self-awareness. I am in a highly competitive, creative industry and, in my business, I do not know anyone who doesn’t want to grow and live their best self. Our work together helped me instantly feel the tension lift from always having to work so hard to be understood by others. He saw things in me that I was having difficulty seeing in myself that have since allowed me to re-claim the inner resources that I can apply to any area of my life or business for the results I’m really wanting. He also helped me increase the happiness quotient in my relationships, along with being able to better resolve conflicts in a way that feels alive, vital and vision focused.
The shift that occurred in my energy after working with Geoff gave my Spirit and body such a sense of feeling renewed, re-generated, and re-charged! I recommend Geoff to anyone who wants to maintain a loving, passionate heart. Doing the work was, by far, the most important commitment I could have made to myself for my life, my art, and my vision.

His Guidance Came Straight From The Heart...
“My experience involving Geoff’s work has been life altering. His workshops and his guidance in personal meetings come directly from the heart. Every workshop or support call I have done has benefited my life. Geoff’s coaching comes from the heart and helps me connect with my heart. He does not come from trying to change you, but from a grounded way of being that supports me in being bigger than I am. He is one of the few people in my life that I allow to support me in troubled times. His coaching has always been right on target for whatever support I have really needed when I’ve needed it. He is a top-notch professional in what he does. His candor, his honesty, and his integrity are what make him the man I so value working with to continually up my game of living the life I truly want.”
– Bob Hesseltine; Lodi, CA
It Enabled Me To Truly Love Myself More & Move On To The Next Steps, Instead Of Being Stuck…
“When counseling my husband and I about 2 years ago, when we were wanting a relationship “tune-up,” Geoff surprised us with his insight about new items that we wondered about why they hadn’t come to the forefront before. I was pleasantly surprised that I got in deep to those residual threads I knew I needed to address. Part of what made that possible was the fact that the space Geoff helped create was the safest I’ve ever experienced.
With Geoff’s intuitive and artful coaching, I was empowered to truly love myself more and move on to the next steps, instead of being stuck. It was much more than head information, and I am grateful for the reopening of the heart and getting the tools for more self-discipline to take care of me in a healthier manner. Plus, I am trusting myself more as my intuition brings things to my attention. I am trusting myself more, continuing to speak up for what I believe and need, and allowing my life to unfold in whole new ways. I am forever grateful for the experience and all it’s brought me.

I Highly Recommend Geoff’s Work To Anyone Who’s Caught In Depression, Anxiety, and Low Self-Esteem…
I find Geoff’s genius to be two-fold; firstly, whether in a workshop or in individual coaching, he creates and holds an impeccable, unbreachable container of safety. Secondly, with this profound trust in place, Geoff then worked his magic of guiding me into the territories of my wounding, with deep respect for the adult and child/teen parts of me…and with unwavering, tenacious presence, grand humor, and divine wisdom. I felt held by Geoff with such compassion and tenderness, that I was finally able to feel, grieve, and rage what was previously untouchable in me. Geoff’s work has taught me how to hold my own grief and anger and to truly re-parent myself. I would highly recommend Geoff’s work to anyone who is caught in unhealthy behavior patterns, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem.

Geoff’s skills in the addressing the issues we all inevitably have to deal with is second to none…
Geoff Laughton’s coaching skills in addressing the issues in life we all inevitably have to deal with is second to none. He is not only a good listener, but provides thoughtful assessment, specific coaching, and counsel. He truly gave of himself to us, particularly in the ways he understood the context of the issues at-hand in order to provide us with the best framework for growing our marriage. He lived the issues with us, in a way, and had an uncanny ability to draw on all our previous conversations to enhance our on-going understanding.
Geoff was our personal advocate and also held us fully accountable for meeting specific goals established in each session. He provided our family the opportunity to grow closer and gave us the tools to address any future inevitable conflict in a loving and mature way. For couples wishing to rekindle their relationship with one another and/or with their children, we recommend Geoff whole-heartedly, and if you can do his private, personal, and intensive 2-3 day Couples Retreat, you will find it a truly life changing experience.

I Can Assure You You Will Be Happier In The Long Run Than You Thought Possible…
I have participated in all of Geoff’s offerings: his intimacy work and his relationships retreats. I have deep gratitude and appreciation for what he lets come through him on so many levels. His compassion, wisdom, and vision allowed what no longer worked for me – what was feeling like a dissonant chord in the song of my life – to have a witness and pathway for healing. Geoff is the real deal. He helped me understand the strength in feeling what is really inside me, to have what wants to appear and release. I have referred Geoff to many people, and while not everyone may be ready to dive in and take a look at what’s ready to heal and go from there, I assure you, if you do, you will be happier in the long run than you thought possible. Thank you, Geoff, for continuing to do your own personal and professional work so that you can continue to assist people on their journey.

I Am A Much Calmer, More Peaceful Person…
“When I started working with Geoff, I remember saying, “I’m ending my third relationship, and I want to know what the hell I’m doing wrong, since I’m the common denominator in all of these situations.”
Geoff has been life saver – he helped me give myself my life – and me – back. He helped me uncover why I continually picked the same kind of men to be in a relationship with. He also helped me see how you do things in one area of your life is how you do everything in all areas of your life. One of the endearments about Geoff for me was his sense of humor. He could always make me laugh, no matter how serious the work we were doing was. It helped make it easier.
Because of my strict religious upbringing, I had to let go of belief systems that no longer served me. Geoff helped me do that, and as a result of that – and the other work we did – I am a much calmer and more peaceful person. Most importantly, I love myself first of all.”
– Abbey St. John; Louisville, CO
I Have Much More Peace Of Mind…
Geoff was so often able to “hear” what I was “really” saying and reflect it back to me in such a way that I could hear it and understand the implications for how I think and operate in my life. As a result of that, I have much more peace of mind, because I am catching myself going down an unproductive mental path much more quickly. That is allowing to be so much more calm and sweeter, in general. I no longer panic when my workload piles up now, or when I can’t immediately see a clear solution to a problem. In sharing the insights gained in coaching with Geoff with key people in my life, I have been able to create more open and growth-ful relationships. Working with Geoff was really pivotal in not only creating more clarity, but also helped me REALLY hear what my instincts were telling me about a former relationship…and, finally, to be able to trust that my instincts were true, so I could move on towards healthier relationships in the future.

Through Coaching With Geoff, I Found My Voice In My Marriage, My Work, And In My Friendships…
Before I started personal coaching with Geoff, I had participated in his Raising Your Spirit’s Voice workshop, and a virtual class. All of those had a profound affect on changing my life, but I was still experiencing difficulties in my relationships with others. The personal coaching was the missing piece. Through coaching with Geoff, I found my voice in my marriage, my work place, and my friendships. I am able to take responsibility for my part in disappointing situations rather than blaming others. I still require courage to speak my truth, but it is much clearer to me that I must speak up if I wish to a happy, well balanced person. I am extremely grateful to Geoff for his compassion and his great ability to guide his clients to their desired end.

I Have Left Behind My “Victim” and “Unworthiness” Feelings & Beliefs…
First and foremost – Since the first time, (maybe second), that I spoke to you over the phone for coaching – I so felt heard and held. I have changed all aspects of my life and continue to do so. I have learned to trust myself and Spirit to the point that I continuously, moment to moment, listen to and follow my flow in line with Spirit’s flow; being more able to recognize and acknowledge, yet not listen to: ego, child, past patterns, etc. This has created such a deep trust, knowing, and living in my ‘truth’ – with all parts of myself present, leaving behind my ‘victim’ and ‘unworthiness’ patterns.

My Life Will Never Be The Same…
I can truly say that life will never be the same since taking one of Geoff’s workshop, as well as being a part of his Men’s Group for 6 years. Just today, someone laid into me, setting off surges of emotion that would’ve sent me ‘south’ for days before understanding and relating to my Inner Child with the tools of the work. Knowing how to be with all of that stuff, powerfully and freely, is an amazing boon.
The impacts of the workshop have left me anything but emotionless. I’m actually refreshed to be really feeling the emotional edginess of life again, to embrace it–rather than want to drown it out–from this point on in life. Thank you for your expertise and your commitment to humankind, Geoff; because that is what you display in leading your work so effectively.

The Most Astounding Thing Has Happened – I’m Happier Than I Have Been For Years…
I finished Geoff’s Inner Child Workshop (Raising Your Spirit’s Voice) several days ago. The most astounding thing has happened-I’m happier than I have been for years. I am not a workshop “junkie,” but I have done several. I am always ready for the let-down after the intensity of the work. It didn’t happen. Geoff is experienced and very perceptive in helping us to ease back into “normal” life. There were a lot of exercises and readings after the formal Workshop had ended that presented ways to allow ourselves to take these experiences into our “normal” life.
Even better… have been the follow-up exercises where we revisit the workshop and our experiences since the workshop and practice how to keep the work alive and recognize it for the true experience that it represents.
~ Tom Johnson, Ph.D.; Louisville, CO
In Doing The Raising Your Spirit’s Voice workshop, I Went From Deep Pain & Anger To A “Soul Orgasm”…
I was acutely aware there was something wrong with me for a long time. I turned my hurt inward, building a wall to protect myself from life’s miseries. I lashed out in anger at others and pushed away those who loved and cared about me. If there were another young person with huge chips on both shoulders, he did not live in my zip code. Clearly, something had to give. I had hit a wall after about four months of therapy, so I was open to new ideas and approaches to “removing the poison from the water.” I was ready to rid myself of my pain and move forward with my life.
By the 3rd day of Geoff’s Raising Your Spirit’s Voice workshop, I experienced being freed from the pain and getting to replace it with a feeling I can only describe as a “soul orgasm.” This head-to-toes, full-body energy and mind cleansing allowed me to release what was not mine to bear, the battles which were not mine to fight, in a war I could not win. As I got to free my spirit, a load was lifted from my shoulders and I felt a calm peace I hadn’t known in over 30 years. Today, I connect to my presence, wants, and needs in a way that helps me be more responsive and less reactive to life’s challenges. Thank you, Geoff, for the tools and support to continue this lifelong process of healing and renewal.

I Have Walked Through Walls Of Fear And Been Stunned By Some Of The Things I Discovered…I Feel Like A Boat That Has Finally Been Able To Catch The Wind In Its Sails.
I decided to commit to doing a two-day intensive coaching retreat with Geoff because I reached a place in my life where I knew I needed to make some major shifts but wasn’t quite sure what those shifts might be. I felt an urgency about my life, a sense that I needed to break through some of my old patterns, in order to embrace a whole new chapter that was wanting to emerge. So much has been explored, uncovered, discovered, and set free. I have walked through walls of fear, and been stunned by some of the things I discovered. At its core, Geoff’s work helped me begin to trust myself, specifically my intuition, with a depth and clarity that had not been possible before.
I have since become free to embrace my life and my rediscovered longings of the heart. On a physical level, there have been many changes since the intensive. I am clearer about what I am about, and consequently clearer about the nature of my work. I feel like a boat that has finally been able to catch the wind in its sails. Things are really moving swiftly in a very positive direction now.

Geoff helped us increase our closeness and connectedness….
We spent a weekend with Geoff Laughton, just the two of us, in an intensive couples’ workshop that has changed our lives and greatly improved our relationship. Every session was recorded, and after transcribing the recordings I excerpted a seven-page recap filled with useful insights and suggestions. Geoff helped us increase our closeness and connectedness through exercises that we still follow at home. We learned how to improve our communications, enhance our sexuality, and deal more effectively with anger and control issues and with emotional disconnects. Geoff has an amazing ability to hear “between the lines” and to explain each of us to the other, thus facilitating our creation of the future we want together.

Geoff works at the very highest levels of human transformation…
“Geoff and I met when I attended one of his workshops in 2001. The relationship was a turning point for me personally, and it allowed me to witness a master of healing. Geoff is among those rare individuals, who having found their deep purpose in life, has made the sacrifices necessary to become an instrument of healing.
I don’t say this lightly — I have trained clinical therapists for more than 30 years; unequivocally, Geoff works at the very highest levels of human transformation, whether he is working with individuals, families, or large groups, simply because this is who Geoff is.”
– Bruce Young; Santa Cruz, CA
The best testimony I can offer is that my life is pretty darn grand…
“I have worked with Geoff on a one-on-one basis, am a regular member of his extraordinary Men’s Groups, as well as having done all his workshops. The best testimony I can offer is that my life is pretty darn grand. Geoff’s insights, his velvet-gloved proddings, and his nurturing have played a very large role in my arriving at a place of enjoyment & peace.
He sees or senses what others do not. I recommend Geoff to anyone seeking to expand their understanding and appreciation for themselves and the gifts of life.”
– Eric Altman; Denver, CO
While many modalities have helped a little, Geoff’s workshop was amazing…
“I have had many challenges with my thoughts and energy in some areas of my life, which I have tried many different healing modalities to try to understand and transform.
I have studied & done body-centered psychotherapy, as well as hypnotherapy. While many of those modalities have helped a little, the blockages have remained until I did Geoff’s work. I was very impressed. It was amazing work, and I recommend it to anyone who is willing and ready to dive deep and move on. Geoff is so there for you, guiding everyone carefully and respectfully while still challenging everyone, when needed, to look differently and deeper. You go to the completion of the issue. This is awesome work.”
– Hannele Tampio; Finland
My relationship with my Dad has shifted…
“Geoff has great insight and humanity. His ability to fully accept people as they are, and to help them shift, is truly astounding. The love and acceptance he provides as a healer, mentor, and coach – coupled with his gift for identifying and gently moving through key issues with his work – is heart-opening. I am honored to have worked with him, and my relationship with my Dad has shifted as a direct result of this work, and I specifically honor his service to others.”
– Allan Laucke; San Rafael, CA
I have witnessed extraordinary results…
“Geoff is able to cut to the heart of the matter…yours and his. He has an amazing intuitive ability to guide men and women along their life journey. I have attended a number of workshops facilitated by Geoff, including his brilliant work with men, and I unhesitatingly recommend them. His depth, skill, and commitment are at a level far beyond the ordinary. I have witnessed extraordinary results in both myself and others when working with Geoff. You won’t find many like him, really.”
– Sean Atsatt; Santa Cruz, CA
I would pay at least four times what I was charged for what I got…
“When I signed up for the Raising Your Spirit’s Voice Workshop, I was very challenged by the price; however, after doing it, I would pay at least four times what was charged for what I got from it. Over the years, I’ve participated in several growth-related workshops. This one was the best. Geoff has a unique talent for helping you recognize and affirm your own inner value, which is life altering.”
– Thom A.; Boston, MA
After I did Geoff’s workshop, my career and life shifted dramatically, and it only gets better!
Geoff’s workshop WILL change your life. I have never been the same after doing the Raising Your Spirit’s Voice Workshop, in the best way possible. My heart opened like a flower and my head has been in peace-drive since. Seriously, this is peace work of the highest order, because once you are cool with yourself, you can only be cool with others! In the week after I did Geoff’s workshop, my career shifted dramatically – and it keeps getting better! I believe these changes came in large part because I felt deserving & available to the best life has to offer, during and after the deep healing/cleanse I received from this weekend. Five golden stars and a deep, deep bow to this work for how it helps and heals people. Please consider doing this work for yourself, your friendships, and your family; it makes all the difference. Thank you ♥
