I enjoyed using these exercises for my clinical practice. It is a great tool for the cognitive work, it makes the information they (clients) have been holding on to tangible, a big aid in the healing process. Also, it really helped me save time and added to my professional resources.

I like to use the exercises of the 17 Emotional Intelligence Exercise package and so far they have helped me a lot in my personal development as well as in working with clients. There`s a lot of beautiful and useful exercises like Mindfulness exercises, Interpersonal Effectiveness, EI Questionnaire, exercises that teach us about how to react when hot buttons are pushed…. couldn’t pick which was better. All of them are great and I gladly recommend it to the people who want to work on their own development and improve their relationships with others, or to use them in the coaching process…
