What clients say about "THE" Inner Peace Doctor

Shawnee Benton-Gibson, LMSW, FDC
Co-Founder & Co-Director of S.O.W. Leadership

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.

"Dr. Akhu conducted a Self-Care workshop via Zoom for our front line staff during the height of the Covid-19 crisis. Our staff really loved the workshop. Her energy, principles of self-care and the tools she shared with us were very impactful. I highly recommend this workshop for any organization dealing with staff fatigue especially during a time of crisis.

Thank you!"

Dr. Akhu’s wonderful workshop couldn’t have come at a more needed time for me. I have been dealing with some difficult family issues and was feeling depleted – physically and emotionally. The combination of Dr. Akhu’s soothing voice and deep knowledge cultivated a feeling of trust. I plan to attend future workshops and classes given by Dr. Akhu as well as recommending her to a number of my friends and family.
