Lillian is very empathetic and supportive. I have become more confident since working with her. She challenged me in a safe way, so I broke some of my old patterns for the better. My life has made many positive changes. In addition, my anxiety issue greatly improved after just ONE hypnotherapy session with her. I had been on anti-anxiety and sleeping meds for many years, and I don't need them anymore!
I never knew that it was CPTSD that had haunted me, although I knew that I had a difficult childhood by having abusive narcissistic parents. I had struggled my entire life, over 5 decades, thinking that I was a pathetic mess that was doomed forever. I sought out Lillian's help when I was at the verge of falling apart, without much optimism in her ability to help me. I thought, for her online photo and the way she looked in person, that she was too young to relate to me, plus our cultural differences. It turned out I was wrong. She was not as young or naive as I had thought. Cultural differences were not a problem. In fact, she was good at addressing cultural issues. More importantly, she was knowledgeable and compassionate, and she pushes me out of my comfort zone as needed. She seemed wiser every time I talked with her. My CPTSD symptoms have significantly improved that I am able to be present and enjoy life now. I have more work to do, as far as improving and managing my CPTSD, but I am hopeful that it is heading toward the right direction, and I am not doomed for life.
Lillian was so supportive when I went to her because of marriage conflicts and the upcoming divorce. It was calming and empowering to have her in my corner. She never judged me when I worried that she would.
Thank you, Lillian, for supporting me raising my troubled grandchild. You have helped me and my grandson develop a less chaotic life. I was not sure at first if our different racial and cultural backgrounds would be a problem for you to help us. Later I was surprised to find out you understood us better than anyone else. You are our "homie." I have never felt any wall between us, and I have been very comfortable working with you.
Your speech was inspiring and engaging. You challenged me to think about things I've never thought of, and yet they are important, such as ethics, competency, professionalism, client's best interest, philosophical issues and more. I've learned to be more humble and respectful to my clients. I feel that I have grown to a higher level in my counseling profession.
I wish I had come to you sooner. You really got it like no one else, and you care. I can't thank you enough. I had lost all faith in the so-called "mental health professionals" or "helping professionals," because they seemed to treat me just like a "job." You treated me like a real human being, and I could feel that you gave your heart out to me, sometimes with brutal honesty. You have restored my faith in trusting a professional. You have made me feel worthy.
I was recommended to meet with Lillian Chen, as a potential Executive Coach, regardless that I had over 14 years of entrepreneurial experience in successful start ups across Greater China. Considering initially whether or not to engage at all a Executive Coach was a decision fraught with a collision of self pride and quiet intrepidation due to not knowing if there would be tangible beneficial outcomes. Ultimately I asked myself that if all of the world's very best sports men and women have a talented person coaching them, then why couldn't I? I knew redefining my self skills were important so as to realign myself for the future and equally reflect on the lessons learnt from previous mistakes, made the decision easier. Engaging Lillian as my Executive Coach has been beneficial in further developing the range cognitive business skills I would need for 2015 and beyond, and also helpful in assisting me in retaining and re-sharpening only the best existing mental tools in my entrepreneur's tool box. Making the commitment to working with Lillian has been rewarded with positive, often challenging and ultimately enlightening experiences. Whilst not always making it easy, Lillian has pushed me to find the solutions and new strategies to develop myself as the entrepreneur I want and need to be. Having Lillian as my Executive Coach has already delivered enhanced results in my various responsibilities as a business owner, investor, board director and leader of people. I highly recommend that if you already think you know all there is to know, then you should strongly consider engaging Lillian Chen to assist you as your Executive Coach to help you find the next level of success for your business and yourself.
I only spoke with Lillian for a Compatibility Consultation. At first I thought, "What a hassle! Why can't we just go ahead and start counseling?!" Well, now I am glad that we started with the CC. She was professional and honest. After a thorough line of questioning, she let me know that she might not be the best person to help me, and she referred me to someone else when I did not know what other options were out there. She also gave me other advice. I could feel that she really cared about my best interest, even when she did not believe that I would be her client. Although I am not working with her, I really appreciate and respect her honesty and kindness.
