Feedback from Giuliana - Tackle Your Challenge

Change coaching (online and offline)

It is the human connection and the wisdom that helped more than anything.

Ella is simply there with you with all her being and she stands beside

you with a mind that is alive and curious.

I could talk about issues that I thought no one could handle or

understand without laborious explanation. After each session

I naturally knew what needs to be done and I did it.

I think that the support Ella offers is profound and helps us

gets back to what we all seek in various ways and forms-unconditional

regard and love.


..and then you are persistent and keep on labelling positively, that's very nice!

You keep on asking and when it doesn't work with a question, you just change it a little bit and asks again. Good! That's stimulating!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++... you 'gave me back my words' a lot, you made me think about it all by myself. "What do you want to achieve?" instead of suggesting all kind of solutions.

So now I don't have fixed solutions but my brains are working, working ...


... you answered so quickly and in such a positive way. In our meeting I liked your enthusiasm and interest in my process.


Feedback after attending offline workshops

The Canadian chocolate bar 'some shockin' good' was given to me by my highly valued colleague and friend Heather Fiske after she had attended my workshop in Florence, Italy at the EBTA conference. Very, very much appreciated!


.... I'm leaving with a strong smile and will use what I learned in your workshop, in my communication with my clients and .. actually with everyone!"


I was lucky to attend the ‘Energizing Communication with Troubled Youth’ workshop with Ella de Jong at the Halifax Conference of SFBTA in November 2016.

Accustomed in my everyday practice to primarily verbal conversations with clients, it made a real difference and impact on me to experience the non-verbal, inspiring and creative indeed, input that we all, participants in the event, were able to make. Even today, almost half a year later, I have very vivid memories of the training tasks Ella proposed us to do, and of my own and the other attendees’ actions and reactions.

The association with the Beatles’ song HELP! is simply inevitable when you study her way of energising therapists and clients! We did different things, coming to realise how many more ways of expressing ourselves and exchanging with clients there are than words alone.

What immediately came to my mind then was Ben Furman’s idea to do a totally verbally-free event with Chinese children. Maybe in some cases and situations we can go without words altogether?! This looks obvious when you take part in Ella’s highly interactive workshop. It was also really such fun and joy for us all! I work rarely with children and teenagers, but now I feel much more comfortable when they attend sessions, knowing how many and diverse ways there are to inspire their hope and to engage their energy in the process of solutions-building.

Thank you, Ella, for the wonderful experience, and I do hope that we meet somewhere again!

... enthusiastic, well prepared, open, cheerful, inspired trainer

... I am able to connect much better now with youth. Out of the box thinking and actually doing made me happy!

... I loved the fact that we had a lot of different assignments so we could practice a lot. The atmosphere in the group was very nice. I am able to communicate better now with my clients.

... I feel more secure now

... I don't think it's ME who has to provide all the answers, anymore! It was very good to experience the creative assignments. You really FEEL how it works


.... "Connecting communication really works. Elle de Jong is a fine, warm professional woman who teaches you through various assignments how you can connect, really connect. Thank you for this!"


... "motivating, energetic, very nice and meaningful"

Feedback conversation with Centro Latino

... It really shows that she is living the practice focused on solutions at all times.

... That you share your ideas and your exercises has been very generous.

... We really liked Ella's posture.

... Very attentive to sharing, close, warm and above all human, important qualities in SF work.

It was again GREAT!!! Everybody should experience this at least once. Structuring your thinking and feeling without the distraction of talking about it. Most times talking makes things unclear and it gets stuck in your head. This method keeps it clear and bright.

Ella gave me the space to work through challenges I was facing in the pandemic lockdown. Her facilitation was calming and relaxing, the tools and techniques were simple yet effective, and I found the session energising and useful. Highly recommended.

It was a fast-paced discovery. It was insightful! I’ve seen it in many different ways, it’s misunderstood. Not by you!

It has brought me some good insight about action i have to take from moving forward the solution. It would be good for people who wants change life or sht in business, but with no strategy and focus.
