Testimonials

Here are just a few of the things people are saying about LDS Coaching and Dr. Gourgouris:
To Elia: You bring such wonderful messages which our Heavenly Father and Jesus would approve. Thanks for your friendship and it has been a joy to be with you in "Time out for Women". God bless you to continue presenting your message.
Chieko N. Okazaki, formerly of the General Relief Society presidency
Many, many ward members expressed their appreciation for your words. ... I believe you had a great impact on many of those who attended. Elia - I just wanted to thank you once again for sharing your thoughts about marriage with the Canterberry Ward. Many, many ward members expressed their appreciation for your words. I know of several members whose spouses were not there are purchasing your CD for themselves and their spouse. I believe you had a great impact on many of those who attended.
Jeff, Canterberry Ward, Parker CO
Elia- Thank you for your spirit and testimony you shared with us. We had many wonderful comments about the evening, I know for me personally I felt the spirit so strong many times. You have such a wonderful gift that you have been given and have chosen not to hide and share with others. I know the leadership in our stake had not heard you speak and were just going off what I had shared with them. I'm sure they were somewhat skeptical, wondering what the evening would be like. You went way beyond what they had expected to happen, I know the leadership of our stake were very pleased with what you shared. When I had heard you speak in Parker for the RS I received a strong impression that you needed to share with our youth. I'm so happy that the leaders trusted in my request to have you speak. Now that's it's over, I know it wasn't just for the youth, it was for many adults, including myself. I've already shared some of it with my two missionaries out in the field when I wrote them this morning. You did touch my life. Thank You again for sharing with us - even when you weren't feeling well.
Stephanie Baker, CSNS YW President, Colorado Springs, CO
Elia, you are such an amazing person. I just sat down to take the time to read your article and it was incredible. You have been blessed in being a very inspirational and spiritual leader. God really has blessed you with those talents so that you can share and uplift others around you. Thank you. At this time of year when I think about Thanksgiving and what I have to be grateful for, you are one of the top people on my gratitude list. Thank you, for so much. Thank you for believing in me at a very fragile part of my life when I was single, when really no one else believed in me. But you did. Thank you for moving me onto greater things, including marriage and children in the gospel. Thank you for saving my marriage and for saving my husband. Truly there are no words to express the gratitude that I feel. I love you as a brother. Thank you for saving my life.
K, Broomfield, CO
I have known Dr. Gourgouris for several years, and have found him to be of exceptional professional credentials and capabilities. I have sought Dr. Gourgouris’ professional counsel and advice on many occasions, and have also referred many individuals (and often their spouses) to him. He has a superb track record of client successes, requiring commitment, accountability, and honesty from them. I have also found him to be a superb teacher, and an excellent lecturer for both small and large groups. I recommend Dr. Gourgouris as a first-class professional with valuable insights, extensive clinical practice and a problem-solving aptitude.
W. Kenneth Thiess, CEO, Parker, CO
Dr. Gourgouris has helped me to see my life in a better light, and I have found that I can learn from any situation that arises. He has the ability to lightly tap me on my shoulder and help me discover a new and exciting direction. I now look at my life as a learning experience and not as “mistakes or failures.” My life is less overwhelming and a lot happier – this is the gift that Dr. Gourgouris has given me.
Lang Parker, Actress/Comic, Santa Monica, CA
During the past nine years, I have referred more than 50 people to Dr. Elia Gourgouris for coaching. Without exception, the results have been superb. Dr. Gourgouris is a brilliant coach, an outstanding speaker, and a gifted professional.
Wayne Boss, Ph.D., Professor, University of Colorado, Leeds School of Business
I am completely content and happier than I ever thought was possible. Dr. Gourgouris helped me to find who I am and the joy that I had always yearned for. My mind has been opened up to learning like never before, because Dr. Gourgouris has given me the invaluable gift of being able to find solutions for myself; he has helped me to see myself from a different perspective. The tools he gave me are priceless - they will help me throughout the rest of my life.
Amanda Overson, Gilbert, Arizona
I have known Dr. Gourgouris for over 15 years, during which I have both met with him personally and have attended many of his lectures. He is extremely knowledgeable, intuitive, and experienced - with over 25,000 hours of counseling and coaching clients which have come mostly through personal referrals. There is no greater proof of customer satisfaction than that! He is also one of the most engaging speakers I have ever heard; each workshop I have attended has been informative, entertaining, and presented in a thoughtful and interesting manner. As you can tell, I am an avid fan and admirer of Dr. Gourgouris and his work – he is one of the most gifted and talented people I have ever met.
Susanne P. Davis, MBA, Boulder, CO
…This class turned out to be an absolute gem and I’m glad we were there.
BYU-Provo Education Week
I regretted that I had not attended this class earlier in the week… He is down to earth & honest about his own relationship issues, which is good to hear.
BYU-Provo Education Week 2006
Dear Elia, Thank you for coming to our Enrichment meeting. I appreciate the spirit and knowledge you brought. It was exactly what we needed.
R.S. President, Brighton, CO.
Bro. Gourgouris had a very well planned lesson. All his teachings felt right & were accompanied by the Holy Ghost. He was humorous as well as knowledgeable & spiritual! The class had application to me and to many others I spoke with.
BYU-Provo Education Week 2006
Made his audience feel comfortable and spellbound at the same time.
BYU-Provo Education Week 2006
You spiritually fed our sisters during our Stake Women’s Conference. You not only entertained us, but enlightened us as well. Your talk was exactly what our sisters needed.
Cyndi Thalman, Loveland, CO. Stake R.S. President
Very well prepared, excellent instructor.
BYU-Provo Education Week 2006
Pleasing personality. Very enjoyable. Good sense of humor. Genuine, not overkill.
BYU-Provo Education Week 2006
I don't know why but you keep coming to my mind today and I needed to email you and thank you again. I am often amazed at the direction of my life since you helped me sort it out. I am so grateful you were there and know that so many aspects of my life are better because of your help. I often go swimming with my babies and find I am able to play with them and be silly with them in ways I wasn't able to with my big girls. I enjoy them so much and their lives are so much more blessed because of your helping me. I am still amazed at the freedom and joy I have been blessed with. Every day I am grateful for the ability I have gained to accept my imperfections and still be able to feel good about and focus on my good qualities and aspects of my life. My life is full of hope and opportunity, even in this time of gloom. I hate to think what my life would be like if you had not helped me save myself. Also, I feel like I need to make sure I ask you to thank your wife and sons for their sacrifices while you traveled to the Springs and did your work there. I am sure there are many times it was a great sacrifice for you and your family. I appreciate those sacrifices and want them to know I am grateful for them.
