"Loey is deeply intuitive, knowledgeable and powerful. My go-to woman for flower essences. The healing space she holds allows me to drop deep into myself and allow the natural unfolding to flower. I'm so grateful that she lives here in the [Twin] Cities!"
-Nicole N.

"I didn't quite know what to expect when I signed up for my family constellation [IOPT] session. I knew I had work to do, but wasn't sure where to start... I instantly felt comfortable in Loey's presence, there was no wrong way to navigate through the [exploration]. She facilitated in a gentle way, with keen observations which lead me to some deep truths. Thanks to this work, I feel lighter and more sure of my life path. I'm so grateful to have worked with Loey! I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to do the work toward healing, and cleaning up their own path."

"Constellation [IOPT] work is an intense experience that needs a very special facilitator to help a client work through whatever is blocking them. Loey is that person. She is warm, compassionate, unbiased and makes her clients feel safe. If you have never done constellation work it is an extremely moving experience and I am very grateful that I found Loey to help me through my journey. Deep gratitude and thankfulness for having such a gifted practitioner with such depth and experience right here in our very own Minneapolis community. A gem to the alternative health community."

"In my journey with treating genital herpes symptoms and the emotional fallout of such a stigmatized and misunderstood STI, I've tried nearly every treatment I could find. In working with Loey and flower essences, I have decreased the frequency of outbreaks [...] Loey crafted a flower essence salve to put on the sores. The first chance I had to use it, I felt immediate relief, forgot my discomfort and healed up in less than 2 days! I hardly noticed the sores thanks to the unique cream that Loey developed for me. I'll continue using it in conjunction with our therapy sessions and flower essences. I feel so grateful for what I've learned and how much I've changed since working with Loey!"
-A.F., massage therapist

"For the past 20 years or so I've been dealing with the fallout of what can only be described as sexual trauma. Because of when and how it happened, I did not realize it was trauma. Nor have I been able to develop an awareness of how this trauma has influenced my life, other than its physical manifestations: dissociation, inability to develop meaningful intimate relationships, inability to hold down long-term employment, a constant need to move, and other symptoms I am only just now becoming aware of [...]
In working with Loey, I have been able to gain freedom from the compulsive energy that was driving so much of my life. She's been able to work with me and listen to what was happening behind my narrative. She has also been able to use a keen eye to pick up on patterns that I was unable to see myself. [...] None of the above loving insight would be available to me had it not been for Loey's flower essence prescriptions [sic]. I am deeply grateful to them and the practitioners of this healing tradition."
-Matt, economist

Completing Loey Colebeck's Flower Essence course has been one of the best decisions of my life. I would recommend this course in a heartbeat. This course satisfied my thirst for in-depth information about flower essences. Since the course was presented over a nine month period, there was opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. Loey is a wise mentor whom I am blessed to work with.
-Rosemary Roberts, Nova Scotia, Canada

"Loey has an innate capacity to perceive the deepest of human pain and not avert her compassionate gaze. Using her gentle intuition and a keen intelligence, she fearlessly yet compassionately guides her clients toward their highest potential. What a gift she is to those who know her."
