Being Well Within began when Loren and Carmel-Ann had a chance meeting in 1996. Realizing that they were each passionately committed to finding the best healing paths for their patients, and that there could a powerful synergy from combining their different yet complementary professional experience and skills.

Why did you write the book Being Well Within: From Distressed to De-Stressed?
Our personal message: “We are committed to bringing the message of empowerment, balance, and wellness to the world. Over the years of working in our individual practices, as well as through the workshops and seminars that we lead, we have become increasingly aware of the ways in which our overall health and well-being are affected by the myriad of stresses in our lives. Further, we gained practical experience at delivering the tools and strategies for helping people manage, reduce, and eliminate the negative effects of stress. The book was born out of our desire to bring to a wider audience the simple truth that you can live from a place of strength, clarity, and self-confidence. Our ultimate message to our readers and workshop participants is that each person really is, and always has been, ‘well within’.”

What are some Being Well Within “success stories”?
Here are just three of the numerous happy testimonials we’ve received over the years:
“I attended a Discover Your Authentic Self workshop with the expectation that I would simply feel good at the end of the day. Instead, I faced some hard truths in my life, and became aware of the pressures that had been weighing me down and causing so many physical health problems in my life. I left the workshop with new-found determination, clarity and focus and, with Loren and Carmel-Ann’s gentle yet firm support and guidance, I was able to make the necessary changes in my marriage and my job so that I could really turn my life around from being stuck and unmotivated to speaking up, being heard and staying focused. In my 40 years, I had never experienced such a turnaround in my life that I have been able to maintain and grow even more.” (Claudia)
“Being Well Within’s Forgiveness workshop helped me to reclaim a relationship with my mother that I thought was beyond repair. I learned how to get beyond my pain and reclaim the parts of me that got lost in all the fighting and judgments, so that I could grow and be free of the burden that relationship place on me (or the burden I placed on me). I truly got my life back after that day. I am forever grateful to Loren and Carmel-Ann.” (Nancy)
“Having spent most of my adult life suffering from all sorts of physical maladies, I discovered that most of them were a direct result of how I handled the stress in my life. I took the workshop From Distressed to De-Stressed and learned new coping skills, strategies and perspectives that have forever changed my life. Loren and Carmel-Ann are skilled practitioners, and their insights and the way they share information made it easy for me to understand, learn and make the changes so I could get healthy. I participated in the workshop in 2010 and almost two years later, I have never been healthier and in a better state of mind.” (Eric)
