Written by E.L. on Jun 14, 2020 after counseling with Michael for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Michael Sucro helped me process a couple of traumatic events during the pandemic and was extremely supportive and a good listener. He also helped me deal with my stress and anxieties without any judgement and knew how to help me have a clearer perspective on my issues. Thank you Michael for all of your help and support!

I've only had one session with Mike, but just from that one conversation he seems to be knowledgable, inviting, and understanding when it comes to dealing with the issues discussed. He has 40 years of experience and has worked in several different areas and fields throughout his career, so I'm confident that he's seen most situations before. He is also friendly and funny and doesn't make you feel like you have to be serious 100% of the time, just comforting and understanding.

My prior thoughts of counselling was that it would be a complete of time...Until meeting Michael. He’s very emotionally supportive, kind, funny, and a brilliant listener. He has a way with words, they stuck with with me and I couldn’t help but start to think differently. I could never forget what Michael has done for me, he’s awesome !!! <3

Mike is amazing. He has helped me with an extremely hard part of my life and has provided insight and guidance that others would not have. Unlike other therapists, Mike listens before giving an opinion.

Written by J.E. on Apr 17, 2019 after counseling with Michael for 5 months on issues concerning relationship issues

Mike has a very warm and welcoming personality, which has made me feel at ease during our video sessions. I always feel better after talking to him, and he has helped me think through a lot of the things I had been dealing with in a way which has helped me move on. I'm so glad that we can talk about heavy issues but still laugh throughout the session. He's a wonderful counselor.

Written by C.O. on Mar 27, 2019 after counseling with Michael for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Mike is a terrific counsellor.

He combines an approachable, good humoured and friendly manner - which immediately puts one at ease - with a sharp analytical perception and an uncanny ability to focus in on the root of the issue quickly. He clearly has an excellent knowledge of his field, from both a scientific perspective and in terms of his extensive experience with patients, and is able to convert this into helpful practical advice.

After only three full sessions with Mike, I felt I had achieved what I had hoped to from therapy. I cannot recommend him highly enough, and am extremely grateful to him.

Written by D.U. on Oct 04, 2018 after counseling with Michael for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and anger management

Mike has been supportive and non-judgmental during the course of the two video conferences he and I have had. He has also been honest with me about what he himself has gone through in the past and what he, personally and individually, does in his day to day life to stay away from addictive behaviour and potential temptation. I appreciate Mike.

Written by T.O. on Jun 18, 2018 after counseling with Michael for 4 months

Michael is a terrific counselor, has genuine compassion and demonstrates it through his work with me. He's deeply experienced in life as well as his profession which I have found extremely helpful. I would recommend him to anyone needing a good therapist to work out the bugs in our lives and get perspective on problems so they can be arrested or altered for the better.
