Building Strong Relationships

“I have worked with Dr. Ceruto at two different points in my career. Sydney created an integrative approach based on solid science to point out the behaviors and thought distortions which had been holding me back. She guided me through the transformation with passion and empathy. Dr. Ceruto showed me how to communicate more effectively and how to really listen to what people were saying. Thanks to Dr. Ceruto, I feel like I’m able to build stronger relationships with my colleagues, and I am a better leader and a better person because of our work. This was by far the most valuable investment in my professional development post college.”

Executive Development

“I was at a point in my career where I felt like I had hit a ceiling. I was a good manager, but I didn’t know how to take my career to the next level. That’s when I decided to work with Sydney. She helped me to identify my strengths and weaknesses as a leader and taught me how to communicate my vision to senior management. She also helped me to delegate tasks more effectively and manage my time better. Thanks to Sydney’s amazing ability to help create positive change and growth, I was able to take on more responsibility at work and I eventually got promoted to a higher executive position. I couldn’t have done it without her!”

Discovering Authenticity

“I’m a successful business woman, but when it came to dating, I just couldn’t seem to get it right. A longtime friend of mine had just completed her package at MindLab and I saw a remarkable change in her for the better. That’s when I decided to work with Dr. Ceruto. She helped me to change my behaviors and outlook on dating, and sorted through all my internal baggage. We worked on my perception and ideals that were holding me back from who I truly was as a woman. In a really short time, I started attracting a significant higher-quality of men. Thanks to my Dr. Ceruto, I met the man of my dreams and we’ve been together for over a year now. I finally found the love I had been looking for!”
