Stress Relief in 30 Seconds!

What Clients are Saying...

"Having Melanie Smithson as our keynote speaker for our annual health conference was a great experience! A very accommodating speaker, Melanie’s interactive sessions inspired participants to re-frame their perspectives with non-traditional methods. We are extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to have Ms. Smithson on our stage to share her thought-provoking insights."  Merri Schneider, Director of Extended Campus in O'Neill, Northeast Community College

"Melanie Smithson’s presentation, “Trauma: Mind and Body”, was an extremely interactive, informative, and fun presentation. Melanie kept the audience engaged and listening intently to all the many useful pieces of information that can be utilized with clients receiving counseling for trauma and anxiety. The information, although only an hour and a half in duration, was very in depth.  Much of the audience was already trained in some form of counseling specifically for trauma, yet Melanie provided material that was new to most. The best thing about the presentation was how easy a lot of the techniques she taught could be implemented immediately with clients. Melanie as a presenter is very clear and concise with her presentation, in tune with the audience, and very at ease and pleasant to listen to. Many other attendees spoke to me after the event about what a wonderful and talented speaker she was.   Since Melanie covered many techniques for reducing stress in an interactive manner, I left feeling inspired and stress free myself. Melanie truly is one of the most engaging and delightful speakers I have heard from probably a hundred speakers on mental health issues and treatment techniques in the Denver area in the past four years."  
Kate M. Ziesenheim, Community Liaison, Highlands Behavioral Health System

As a member of the Metro Denver Dental Society Continuing Education Committee, I have the privilege of helping select speakers for our events throughout the year.  When it was
brought to my attention that we were looking for a speaker to touch on issues of stress and emotional well-being, I knew I had just the right person.  Melanie has helped me so
much personally in my life, that I couldn’t wait to share this opportunity with others in the dental community.  We do have some stress in our lives as dental professionals!  
Being in the room during her course, I could actually see people connecting with what she had to say and realizing that there are some really healthy ways to deal with life’s
challenges. Melanie is an engaging, entertaining and educational speaker.  She has the ability to motivate audiences to make positive change in their lives. We would love to have her return."
Laura Brenner, Metro Denver Dental Society

“I wanted to share just how much the Sedona Method and your work has changed my life for the better. Since my group sessions, truly, everything has shifted to much improvement. The blocks that ‘kinked my hose’ have gone away. It’s great – you’re great and I so appreciate everything you do. I have referred a kazillion folks to you and your work and will continue to do so.”          Joyce Leake, animal communicator, Denver, Co.
'I came to your group full of expectations. Indeed, I had mentally prepared myself in all my 'defensiveness' for yet another roller-coaster of emotions like I had, in previous therapeutic endeavours, been unable to control or master. What I experienced instead, has been not only treasured memories of camaraderie and oneness between one and all, but also a sense of inner peace and openness to life. Life has taken on a whole new meaning for me, wherein I have finally learned to 'stop and smell the roses', to take time to revel in the glorious wonders that plentifully abound internally. Thank you once again for allowing me to be a part of something that has touched me greatly. I know life (and I) shall never be the same again. All you need is love right?'
