“Jack and Soorya are real and practical in the art of “coupleship.” They give us hope that it’s possible to connect at any stage of life.
They are actual day-to-day real life practitioners, not just professors. They are both practitioners and teachers, and that’s invaluable. Their wisdom and experience make them excellent coaches because they know the terrain so well.
We want to spend time with real practitioners because that motivates us to practice and speed up the fire of our relationship.”
Veronique D and Amir J, North Vancouver BC
“Jack and Soorya provide a safe, non-judgemental environment that allows us to feel comfortable to explore and talk about things that are hard to address in normal everyday living situations because of the potential negativity that can arise. Their depth of knowledge about people, how people interact and how the human mind works provides them with a unique perspective from which to coach couples. They keep things flowing, moving and fun as well.
Between them, they present both the masculine and feminine side of life’s challenges and dilemmas, which we always find extremely helpful. We go deeper in our relationship as a result of spending time with Jack and Soorya. That is what we want. As a couple we experienced just “being” with each other, which is what matters most, even in awkward and difficult situations.”
Christie and Bernie G, North Vancouver BC
“Sessions with Jack and Soorya have helped me to get reacquainted with my husband after thirty years of devoting our time and energy to our careers and to raising our children. We have rediscovered how much we mean to each other.
Now we are exploring all the many ways that we want to live the next stage of our lives as a couple. Soorya and Jack have shown us ways to improve our communications skills, discovering new aspects of the person we fell in love with so long ago. It has had the added and unexpected benefits of more romance, more special and intimate time in each other’s company, and a better sex life!
With Soorya and Jack, we feel that we are no longer just drifting from day to day. Rather, we’re back in the drivers’ seats, sharing the journey not only with each other, but with these two wonderful people, who celebrate our achievements. They are positive, loving, kind and gentle as they guide and cheer us on each step of the way.”
Rebecca A, Vancouver BC
“When Rebecca and I first came to see Jack and Soorya, I was nervous about opening up to an unknown couple. That quickly changed. My nervousness has turned into looking forward to meeting them. Our encounters are like an oasis in the week. They make our sessions together fun and rewarding, as they guide us through many exercises on growing as a couple.
As a result of their coaching we’ve begun to consciously drive our relationship instead of just letting events take control of us. Our life has improved: our level of intimacy; how we talk to each other and discuss issues; how we relate with others in the world (our social, business and family relationships); and even how and what we eat. It’s great to get coaching from a real couple that actually shows you how to do it – not just by talking, but by livingit.”
Rob A , Vancouver BC
“Jack and Soorya coach from real life experience. They are honest and transparent and easy to bond with and trust. We love their enthusiasm for each other, for couples and for relationships. It felt like we were being mentored by friends, not just coached.
Thank you for opening your home and hearts to us. Thank you also for the work you did in preparation for our sessions and the energy you put into guiding and teaching us. We have been encouraged and challenged and our relationship has grown because of you and we are grateful.”
Norma S and Shawn W, Burnaby BC
“Jack and Soorya are lovely as a couple and individually. They have a good sense of humour and intuition and are transparent with their own relationship and life. This created immediate safety and understanding which helped Frank and I to be more transparent and honest about what was going on with us.
I drew a lot from Jack and Soorya because of their honesty with their own relationship. It gave me room to be both imperfect and to have hope. It made it okay for me as a counsellor myself to be working on my own stuff. “
Kelli G, Langley BC
“I learned a lot from Jack and Soorya because they’re so transparent and honest and at the same time so committed to their relationship. I am now more aware of what’s going on inside me. I saw how it’s possible to use our upsets and misunderstandings and the “hurricanes” we go through as springboards to greater intimacy.”
Frank M, Langley BC
“Jack and Soorya have a lot of experience and have done a great deal of work on themselves. They live what they’re coaching because they’ve internalized it. They’re grounded in it. Their coaching is totally based on their client’s needs. They really care about developing your ability and strength and are not preachy. “
Joyce and Craig C, Nanaimo BC
“Jack and Soorya are great guides for helping couples. They have shared excellent techniques and practices with us that have helped greatly in our ability to communicate and build our life together. They have extensive training and experience and bring a unique ability to their coaching – an empathy for others born of working on the exact same issues.
They are all for practically mastering how to be a couple that thrives – as a joyful work in progress rather than any final destination. We recommend any couple looking for more love and laughter in their relationship to get to know them.”
Erika G and Kelly B, Vancouver BC
“Jack and Soorya are dedicated and committed to the transformation of what it means to be a couple. We’ve been blessed to experience their depth. Something sacred happens in the safety, space and openness they provide.
We’ve been able to push past our normal guardedness and experience our own openness, vulnerability and depth in their presence. Their work with couples is a gift of authenticity, truth and integrity, and this encourages us to be more honest with ourselves and each other. Thank you for all that you do, all that you are and all that you bring to couples.
We’ve learned how to be open and honest and show up exactly as we are in our relationship. We are wowed by how many years you’ve been through the ups and downs of being a couple. You model the miracle of love between yourselves and that inspires us.”
Linda DE and Jacob E, Victoria, BC
“Jack and Soorya were able to feel into us and coach in a way that always brought out whatever was needed from us. We got to re-experience how important it is to look at ourselves, be truthful and show up just as we are – the good, the bad and the ugly. They are very good at getting couples to open up, feel their feelings and express honestly. We love you guys!
Our deepest appreciation for caring so much and enriching our couple-ship. Merci. The chocolate helped! And thanks for the great raw food recipes!”
Denise B-M and Peter M, Vancouver BC
“Jack and Soorya are an extremely caring couple who are devoted to supporting other couples to create the relationship that they’ve always wanted. Sam and I now have better communication skills. We learned different modes of approaching a topic or issue in ways that aren’t aggressive and don’t blame or fault the other person. We can open a conversation so it doesn’t degenerate, but results in more connection.”
Fern L, Vancouver BC
“I learned so much from Jack and Soorya, as well as from the other couples. I feel that I have more stuff in my tool kit to help me and guide me in the right direction.”
