Terrific Testimonials

  • Rania | London, England

     

    "You have a brilliant and painless way of walking me from an honest look at where I am to where I really want to be. Through working with you, I am learning to do this for myself, which I appreciate, and I am changing a little every day, and I am gaining confidence!"

  • Liz | Asheville, NC

     

    I loved the whole event, it flowed, and time passed far too swiftly. I appreciated your intelligence, passion, and your grasp of the information. Your very supportive, non-judgmental attitude permeated the room, filling it with safety, humor, intimacy and permission to feel and grasp our steps in the wild world of men and women!

  • Doug | Asheville, NC

     

    Terri has the ability to quickly see the essential dynamic within a couple, and to articulate this in a clear and non-judgmental way that both people are able to hear.

    To have a woman clearly articulate and confirm my experience as a man in relationship was extremely valuable.

    She is also able to offer clear practical steps, often small ones, which allow for trust and connection to gain a toehold and eventually to flourish.

    I feel very grateful for our work with Terri, which moved a beautiful relationship out of a very stuck and destructive place. She did this by helping each of us move out of the seductive trap of blame, and to see where and how we needed to take personal responsibility.

    She has a very practical wisdom, rooted in both her personal and professional experience, which she shares with insight and humor.

    I would recommend Terri wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to better understand the nature of relationship, to deepen communication or to help restore a connection.

  • Jessica | Minneapolis, MN

     

    I’m 17 yrs. old. Terri Crosby is a genius. She set me in a whole new direction from day one of talking to her. It is so valuable to know this kind of stuff at my age where things can get really screwy really fast.

    I don’t know about you, but I have looked around at relationships and thought, “What in the heck is going on there? How can relating to someone be so difficult?”

    Well, it’s not, actually. Terri simplifies things. Her approach makes sense to me. Her info is up to speed with NOW. I don’t care if you’re old or young. Don’t sit around and wonder. Call her up.

  • Joyce | Asheville, NC

     

    At age 73, I had reached the point where I didn't really care whether I understood men or not - but your presentation brought "eureka" moments that were FUN!"

  • Joe | Los Angeles, CA

     

    When I first started sessions with Terri about my relationship with my ex-wife, children, and my current partner, I was flying blind – like driving at night with the lights off, toward who-knows-where. Working with Terri was like turning the lights on, seeing an entirely different view and a clear direction home.

  • Marva | Los Angeles, CA

     

    I went into the session with Terri Crosby expecting to walk away with one or two key elements to help me on my search for a life partner. In this respect my expectations were met. What I didn't expect were keys to my relationship with my daughter. I have a long way to go to stop demanding perfection from my ten year old bundle of amazingness, but at least I've started the journey now. Thanks Terri.

  • Dee | Los Angeles, CA

     

    Terri’s guidance has been invaluable to me over the last year. My communication with men is improving. I am still a work in progress but am confident that I am at a place where I will attract a partner who is my equal on all levels, and with whom I can share a completely fulfilling love life.

    Even though my career is demanding, I am starting to balance my life with more relaxation, which brings out the happy woman in me.

    The impact of this work on my relationship with my daughter has also been a gift. I am grateful for both the scope and detail of what Terri and I have done together and the positive difference this has made in my life.

    Terri is a life coach, professor, cheerleader and friend, all wrapped up into one beautiful being. Thank you, Terri, from the bottom of my heart.

  • Dan | Asheville, NC

     

    Terri is an engaging speaker and well-informed on the subject of men and women. I learned better ways to communicate with my partner.

  • Keldwyn | Black Mountain, NC

     

    I really appreciate the coaching you gave me today. You helped me be clear, honest and upfront. After our session, I was able to call back the “match.com” guy, and I was playful with him and I was much more myself. What’s nice is that I’m not high on this. I have a lot in common with him, and feel a calmer connection with him. Thank you so much."

  • Jennifer | The Netherlands

    I appreciate Terri’s refreshing, uplifting style. She offered me new ways to look at feeling stuck and gave me tools to make my life great instead of simply okay. I needed a change of focus from what isn’t working to what IS working and what brings joy in my life. Not just a little joy -- but an abundance of joy! Working with Terri has helped the more fun and joyful me ripple out into my life and my relationships.

Rise Up by Andra Day

What a great set of words for these oncoming days.

Rise Up

 
You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry go round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains
And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
And I’ll rise up
High like the waves
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
When the silence isn’t quiet
And it feels like it’s getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we’ll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
Bring it to its feet
And move mountains
And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
All we need, all we need is hope
And for that we have each other
And for that we have each other
And we will rise
We will rise
We’ll rise, oh, oh
We’ll rise
I’ll rise up
Rise like the day
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I will rise a thousand times again
And we’ll rise up
High like the waves
We’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
We’ll rise up
And we’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
Ah, ah, ah, ah

Rippling Abs, Anyone?

Rippling Abs, Anyone?

During this strange time in history, I noticed y’all were tackling all sorts of interesting projects. I decided I needed one, too—something positive to remember the pandemic of 2020 by.
 
I decided to pay attention to something I had abandoned…
 
Nope, I’m not cleaning my garage. I am not organizing one single thing. I’m not planting a garden or cleaning up my yard.
 
Instead, I decided to take care of myself better. This, folks, has made all the difference for me.
 
With relatively little time and effort on my part, I feel so much better than I did a month ago.
 
On March 30, I got on the exercise bike and the yoga mat for the first time in a long time, and did 30 minutes each. I liked it so much that I decided to do it every day. But I fell short of that, and changed my commitment to every other day, which felt more manageable, reasonable, and doable.
 
I also get off the bike after every song, take a couple of sips of water, shake out my legs and arms for a few seconds, and get back on. This makes the bike project a reasonable proposition, too.
 
Daily walks of any length—by myself, or with my little guy, Jackson—are a fresh air bonus.
 
My recumbent exercise bike has pulleys to work my upper body while I pedal, which gets my heart rate up fast, and also helps my whole-body strength. It feels good to get up from writing, or doing a consulting session with a client, to do something physically challenging while listening to good music.
 
After only a month, I feel a sheet of muscles on the front of me I haven’t felt for a very, very long time. Goodness gracious. Who knew they were there. I’ll be posting rippling ab photos soon, I’m sure.
 
I have no idea what the scales have to say about my bike/yoga project—I don’t care. Paying attention to scales tends to send me sideways, and therefore, I’m ignoring them completely.
 
But—I LOVE the way I feel! Hang in there, everyone.

Check Out This Troublemaker in Relationships

Check Out This Troublemaker in Relationships

Sometimes we ask intimate partners to do for us what is actually ours to do.

We ask our partner to give us the reassurance, love or appreciation we feel is missing in ourselves, with the hope that they will give us what we’re asking for—and then we’ll feel better. They’ll take care of our problem.

But when they do give us what we’re asking for, it can never be enough, because we have insufficient context for what they’ve given. We haven’t build the inner foundation to receive it, hear it, welcome it, believe it. They try to help, but their love for us falls into our void, our black hole, our love bucket with no bottom.

As always, there’s hope. Check out the video below.
