"It is with great pleasure that I recommend Dr. Maté as a speaker. His simple, clear way of presenting his material was absolutely captivating, and the audience quickly forgot the absence of any showy PowerPoint slides or other visual aids… In his understated manner, Dr. Maté proceeded to outline a message so vital that people here are still talking about it."

"I listened to you speak at the conference on Friday and I wanted to tell you that I have never been moved by a speaker like you did for me. You are incredibly insightful and I feel true passion in the words you speak. It was a pleasure hearing you speak. "

Testimonial

"We had a wonderful turnout - approximately 500 people for each event. Many people attended both events. I have had nothing but excellent feedback and Dr. Mate has done a lot to help our community move towards the understanding of the paradigm shift that we need to make if we are going to truly help our children develop fully. I can't say enough about how much we have appreciated Dr. Mate's presentations and support."

"I am the woman from the event who talked about my Lupus being a license to say NO. I just wanted to thank you for your healing words. You say things that intuitively I have known to be true but never spoke out loud. Your work is changing the world. I am a teacher and a counselor and will spread the messages. "

Testimonial

"Just a simple note of thanks for coming to Osgoode Hall Law School to speak on the topic of ADHD. It has been almost 2 weeks since your talk and I continue to get daily feedback about how brilliant and insightful you are. You need to know that word travels fast and you have inspired many parents, lawyers, doctors and judges to pick up your books and learn more. "

"Dr. Mate's involvement of members of the audience and his ability to navigate it so well and interject humour and his own personal and professional experiences is a gift."

Testimonial

"I was thoroughly impressed. You exceeded the expectations of the 900+ people in attendance. Your talk was excellent, and I have never seen a speaker answer personal questions from the audience with such empathy, compassion, and assertiveness. I was truly amazed and inspired. "

Review

"Dr. Mate is an excellent speaker. It was refreshing not to have to suffer through yet another power point presentation. His anecdotal and interactive approach is a powerful way to provide much needed information."

Review

"I would like to thank Dr. Mate ever so much for teaching me how to change the way I think about my past, present and future, and to help our patients do the same, so they may heal as best as they can."

Review

"I tuned into the En-theos Recovery 2 conference and was pretty impressed, despite listening to only a few interviews. Of course, yours was one of them. The next day I was replaying your interview in my office. A gent who suffers greatly from serious alcoholic/porn binges was watching it with me. This gent, in between his binging, does nothing else but distract himself from the by working a lot and talking a lot of positive nonsense and calling it his “recovery”. He listened to you intently, eyes fixed, mouth open, heard you talk about examining oneself and asking yourself the right questions; not in a bitter way, but with “compassionate curiosity”, as you call it. He experienced an epiphany. Your interview was a major turning point in his life. Thanks so much for everything."
