"When I started working with Tim, I felt stifled both from a personal and a business perspective. My conversations with Tim helped me focus on the behaviors I needed to change, which helped dramatically improve the results I saw in my life. I can say both personally and professionally I'm at the best point I've ever been.
When you're so close to your own problems, you can drown in them. Tim helped me see where my negativity was coming from and shed it. After pinpointing the source of my stress, I realized I needed to remove myself from it. I could not have done this without Tim’s masterful help.
Tim offered me insights that were sometimes initially uncomfortable but truths I needed to hear. Tim pointed out what steps I needed to take and helped me take them.
Without his guidance and care, I would have been lost. Working with Tim helped me find my own path toward a much better future."

"When I was first introduced to Tim, I was unfulfilled and struggling with my relationships. I soon found myself soliciting his advice regularly. He helped me explore my feelings and cope with problems. He brought me to a place of self-awareness and helped me identify the real causes of my pain.
With his guidance, I was able to accept where I was in the moment and not apologize or beat myself up about my mental state. Because of this new-found acceptance, I became a better person in my relationships and in my life. Tim's warm yet analytical method made it easy to open up to him from the start and to entrust him with my deepest thoughts and emotions as we progressed.
I am very grateful to Tim for getting me through a particularly difficult time. Today, I am happier in my relationship than I have ever been and able to enjoy just being myself, while continually working on bettering myself. Tim has become one of my most trusted advisors."

“We needed a strong copyeditor for our Unconventional Guides series, and Tim Lawrence was the perfect fit. He didn't just tell us about our many errors—he also provided clear, comprehensive notes on exactly how to improve the entire product. In fact, we essentially got a two-for-one deal, since he took it upon his own initiative to proofread the final guides after they went to design. I hope you get the opportunity to hire him, but I also hope you don't take him away from us.”

“In the years I have known Tim, he has been a gifted mentor and a sage advisor. I honestly don’t know where I would be today without his help, advice, and genuine care. I’ve gone through many trials over the years, and his empathetic approach has been pivotal to my handling of them all.
I have come to Tim for coaching on issues spanning a broad spectrum of pain and anxiety: the loss of a loved one to death or imprisonment; physical, mental and emotional hardships; and simply the often overwhelming nature of daily life. He is among the best listeners I have ever met. He is able to comprehend even the deepest and darkest of issues without judgment and help you navigate through them. He has so often been able to help me see the bigger picture when I am unable to see it myself. His own trials have been immense, and I admire the strength and fortitude he’s shown to be where he is today.
I would recommend Tim as a mentor and counselor to anyone who is struggling. He has been through so much. I know he will understand what you’re going through and be able to help you plot a course through the stormy waters and pain. Tim is an exceptionally deep and able-minded person who can help anyone find these paths, encouraging them to walk with hope, strength and inner peace to promote a more balanced, fulfilled way of living.”
