"You are an awesome facilitator. You listen and reflect what people say quite well. There is a real clarity to your thinking/talking. Thank you!” For over a decade, I have had the distinct pleasure of witnessing Dr. Adwoa Akhu’s work as a panelist, presenter and moderator for several community events and I am always moved and amazed by her ability to captivate audiences with her gentle, yet powerful, presence, voice, and demeanor. Dr. Akhu can command a room while simultaneously creating a safe and nurturing atmosphere for participants to share their stories, release their pain and discover pathways to heal and transform. She also engages audiences by facilitating experiential exercises that they can utilize beyond the event. This allows individuals to access their own power and to develop a new and sustainable healing practice. Her commitment to supporting individuals and communities is demonstrated in the products and services she develops and in everything that she says and does with, and for, the community."
