Once you have these set in place, learning a technique is just part of your process, part of your flow,
and comes with much greater ease.” – The House of Flow

Up until recently, I was stressed out and confused all the time while trying to write my book. I couldn’t get into a flow and was constantly making excuses so I wouldn’t have to do it which had a horrible effect on my mind. Douglas P. Smith came along and helped me break through all my barriers. He gave me clear processes to follow which got me writing my book while feeling inspired and uplifted during the process. Not only that, but Douglas also keeps me accountable and cares about my success. He has enabled me to take my vision to the next level and I am eternally grateful to him.
Douglas is a gifted counselor and tutor. He has the knack of helping you find out what it is that you want to do. And he does it in a way that you feel good about it. I know because I have been the beneficiary of his generous gift of time that has helped me find my focus for an exhibition of my photography planned for later next year.
I have been a photographer for over twenty years. But I have no professional exhibitions to my credit. Thanks to Douglas, this is soon going to change for the better!
I cannot recommend him enough to artists who feel stuck in their careers or professional development. He is genuinely interested in finding out what it is that makes you tick and then he helps you see that you do!
