Coach Michelle was influential in me making a transition in my life. She is very compassionate but very truthful in her approach. When you are in crisis, you dont know what the plan should be or the first step to putting one together. She is very good at helpingyou with a plan and holding you accountable to it. IN the first meeting I felt hope and by the 4th meeting I felt empowered. My family begin to notice the transformation and I was much more fully present within my relationshipb. Most of all it was a great moment in my life to get to know me!
I have trained with Johanna out of my home since February and cannot recommend her enough! She is a very sweet & friendly young woman but most of all full of energy, reliable & effective. Johanna gives me the push I need to get the most out of my training when I'm with her as well as on my own. We train twice/wk and no two sessions have ever been the same. She tailors them to my personal needs and ability and is very knowledgeable about diet and overall health. Johanna demonstrates she honestly cares. I can always count on her to truthfully & promptly answer any questions I may have. My initial goal was to lose 30lbs. I have lost 25 of them so far & once I achieve that goal, I will definitely be setting a new one. I am undeniably happy with my results thus far not only because I look better, but more importantly because I FEEL better! Thank you Johanna for going above and beyond in efforts to make this new lifestyle transition an achievable one! Not only have I gained knowledge & strength...but I have also gained a great friend along the way!
I could write a complete memoir around my experience with Fawn. Before I get into it, I want to be very straightforward: Fawn: -Incredibly smart with huge range of knowledge in counseling and resources -Infinitely compassionate -Super easy to talk to and considerate of me -My biggest cheerleader (I'm talking up there next to my mom) -Worth every penny Me: (and you, future client!) -Stuck / Confused / Unhappy -Willing to be utterly honest with Fawn and myself -Open to making big and small lifestyle changes -Committed to spend as much reasonable time on coaching exercises and reading -(4 months later) Crazy in love with myself and so proud to have embarked on this journey to create my HELL YES life I liken my experience with Fawn to be, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." (Buddha) I was in a really tough place in my life, feeling like I had no direction or even a compass to guide me. Fawn struck me with a phrase in her bio that said that she helps women who feel like they are stuck. I totally identified with that. I knew that something needed to change in my life. I originally reached out with the intent that it would be my career, but working with Fawn became so much more. With her guidance and support I have made incredible changes in my life, self-appreciation, discipline, relationships, spirituality, and happiness. We started unpacking the deepest of deep limiting beliefs that I had about myself. In no way would I describe this process as easy, but the payoff is oh so sweet. I have personal testimonies from the people around me (some of who don't know that I'm working with a coach) that recognize a change in my daily happiness. One of the MANY things I have loved about working with Fawn is her ability to zero in on what I need. She has incredible knowledge combined with a natural intuition of how to help her clients grow. Even if I didn't know what I would accomplish on a given call, it was her talent and expertise that helped me each step along the way. She introduced me to new methods of communication and taught me many exercises that I will continue to use whenever I am faced with challenging situations for the rest of my life. She also recommends great books :) Another area of note where I noticed a huge change in the course of my coaching with Fawn is my self-discipline. I was really struggling with accomplishing anything that felt like "work". (Outside of work.) I was a writer that hadn't written in years and through my personalized action items (or assignments) I began a very therapeutic return to my art. I also started creating a schedule and setting goals for myself. Over time, the result and accomplishment of doing the "work" totally outweighed the dread that hovers around procrastination. I was able to change a really bad habit that I specifically identified in the beginning of this journey. I have a remarkable amount of quantifiable self-improvement in my google docs that I am so proud of. I have to second another review I saw saying if "you're wondering whether or not to take the plunge..." DO IT. Your life is about to change.
I needed to update my résumé and a cover letter to distinguish myself from the competition. I asked Fred to help me with this task and he responded promptly. He also helped me with my career goals to clarify my targets and to foresee any other additional possibilities. I enjoyed his work style and the results were outstanding. I less than 2 weeks I got hired.
I reached out to Claudia to help me with my career in business development and sales. After my first session with Caludia I already started feeling and seeing the positive results in my career and my personal life. I am excited to seeing my results as my therapy continues with her.
I like that Bradford listens and communicates with compassion and non-judgement. He poses challenging questions to help me gain clarity on changes I want to make in parenting my daughter, goals I want to set for my new career, and how to maintain healthy, happy relationships with loved ones.
A few things brought me to the Pasadena. After an 18 month long hiatus from sprint triathlons, a change in career and relocating to Pasadena, my search for a new trainer started. I plugged into Thumbtack and interviewed some candidates, then I found Tommy. What a find!! He's experienced, educated, motivating and understands my ultimate goal in my sport. I came in with a slight injury and his rehabilitative exercises are effective and yet making me stronger and faster. His dedication to what he does exudes through his training. He identifies and encourages me to push. Any athlete could increase their athleticism and talent when working with Tommy. Everything you want to know about your functioning body, nutrition, supplements, etc., he knows it. His patience is endless. I've trialed other trainers, but the rapport was lacking in attentiveness and follow through. 100% present every time. A life investment worth every minute. I feel confident that my goals will be reached working with Tommy Houck.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Elenie Opffer for the past month. This year I decided to make a transition professionally into a slightly different field of work. After updating my resume I realized I was rusty and out of practice with my interview skills. Elenie and her professional expertise have helped me articulate my strengths and skills and confidently transform them into responses to some of the toughest interview questions. Taking her professional advice on recorded mock interview exercises and giving me feedback on my cover letters has allowed me to stand out beyond my competition. Her professional insight and coaching has prepared me to be a more confident and refined professional. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Elenie. The amount of value you receive from her knowledge and detailed coaching will allow you to be the polished professional companies seek.
I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.
For career minded individuals Emma offers a compelling mix of openness, strong listening and understanding skills, with proven business acumen; in short she understands the world you are operating in. Furthermore, Emma has a lovely way of getting to the heart of this issue (root rather than the symptoms) and keeping you focused on reaching your potential with a strong action plan. I highly recommend working with Emma.
Grace is a phenomenal coach! I came to her at a time when I was experiencing a lot of turbulence with my relationships and in my career. With her fantastic listening skills, compassion and keen insights, she helped me quickly understand the source of my personal and professional challenges. She then supported me to replace negative thoughts, ambiguous boundaries and self-defeating behaviors with positive thoughts and habits and helped me develop a clear vision of what I want (as well as a plan on how to get it). Grace has a great ability to get right to the source of a problem and provides excellent guidance, resources and tools that are of tremendous value. She got me unstuck and feeling strong, heard, and productive again. Grace goes above and beyond expectation and is a true God send!
I've been going to Kay for five years for coaching on various career-related needs. She always asks strategic questions and provides objective feedback in a positive manner. She also follows up to discuss how things have changed/improved and provides additional guidance when necessary. I've always felt comfortable seeking guidance from Kay and look forward to continuing to work with her.
Greg was super helpful in guiding me through the steps from a working at a startup to now a small business owner. He not only helped me make careful but smart career decisions, he also helped me package myself and my idea in front of the investors. I needed much help with business modeling, financial modeling, and pitch deck compilation, and Greg taught me all in the most efficient way possible. I would not have been able to raise the funds I needed and be where I am without Greg today.
Mel's insight and encouragement helped me battle through a seriously bleak period i went through this past winter/spring. I went to Mel at a time when I was facing obstacles that I thought I just couldn't overcome and i didn't know where else to turn. I was in the midst of a health crisis, was laid off from my job, dealing relationship issues that left me feeling worthless an depressed, and dealing with difficult family members. I literally thought all was lost. Mel listened to me with the warmth and compassion of a dear friend, but also challenged me to go to those dark places and gain awareness of my patterns and "stories" that kept me in this ugly self-defeating cycle. Through her eloquently put insight and encouragement, I left every session feeling empowered with a realistic plan of attack. Armed with the tools Mel taught me, I feel like I have matured beyond what i ever thought possible for myself and gained an invaluable sense of awareness that i consciously continue to build. Im very happy to report that i feel like I have made it through the worst time in my life so far. Its been a long rollercoaster of a journey, but Im physically and emotionally on the mend, and i am embarking on a very exciting career opportunity. I am sure that this new adventure would not be in my life were it not for the amazing growth I went through via life coaching. I intend to make working on building my awareness and opening consciousness a lifelong pursuit. Its hard to imagine such powerful wisdom coming from someone you'd just as easily hang out at happy hour with, but Mel is a rare gem who possesses wisdom well beyond her years. As I have gotten to know her more through the Raise Your State community, I have seen her candidly battle through her own difficult journeys. If you are lucky enough maybe one day she'll tell you her story. For me personally, It has been an amazing thing to witness this transformation in her, and even more incredible to see her come out the other side wanting to dive back into the depths to help other young people who are feeling just as lost. She is not only a life coach to me but and endless source of inspiration and light.
Mark is inspirational & has learned from the most successful people on the planet. He will improve your productivity, life, career, health...you name it! At that price, he's a steal!!!
Tracy is one of the wisest and most clear-headed people I have ever worked with. Her ability to see not only the problem at hand but also a myriad of solutions is what makes her such a gifted coach. I live in NY but do my sessions with Tracy on the phone. Speaking with her always brightens my week and helps me move forward with my goals. She has helped me to build the confidence I need alongside a working plan that helps me both build and achieve my goals. She is patient, kind, and full of intelligence and understanding. Working with Tracy is a truly life changing experience. Invaluable as far as I'm concerned. I could not recommend her highly enough.
