I don't even know where to begin. Prior to meeting Michelle, I had no idea what a life coach was. All I knew was that I was stuck and I needed a bit more guidance in my life and that's when my cousin recommended her to me. Michelle is beyond amazing. When I first met her she gave me her book and her workbook. These tools, along with her, helped me through my whole process. I was able to self reflect more and change my way of thinking. She's helped me have courage to do some of the scariest things I could never imagine myself doing. She's helped better direct my life to where I want to go and open to my eyes to my own truths. She has a passsion for what she does and it truly shows in her work. There's never any judgment and she's able to share her toughest experiences . Michelle has an amazing heart and only has the best intentions. I admire her strength the most. I'm extremely grateful for her guidance and highly recommend her as a life coach.
If you're like me, you're reading this wondering if you should take the plunge. While each situation is unique, I gotta say... DO IT! If you have the means and could use guidance in any aspect of your life, absolutely dive in. Fawn is incredible. I've been working with her for over a month now and I've seen so many significant changes in my life, changes that wouldn't have been possible without Fawn's support and knowledge. I contacted Fawn when I decided I needed a more hands on approach to improving my outlook and my habits. What I've achieved in my short time with her is far greater than I ever expected. I come away from our sessions more positive, more motivated, and refreshed. Her meticulous handling of each session, her ability to listen with an intent to understand, her check-ins, and her resource sharing is so intuitive. She knows because she's been there. Her scheduling system is wonderfully easy, which is especially helpful when dealing with different time zones. She utilizes Google Docs for session notes, which I love! I can carry my progress in my pocket. Fawn does an amazing job laying out a path at the beginning of coaching, but she also knows when to make adjustments. Much like life, you can only prepare so much before you have to simply run with what you've been given. I love that each conversation feels like catching up with a wise friend I've known for years, all while aspects of my goals are starting to fall into place. I'm incorporating her suggested action items in a way I've never been able to do before: effortlessly and optimistically. I'm gushing, but so what? One thing we touch on so often--and for good reason--is gratitude. I'm so grateful to have found Fawn and I can't wait to see where the remainder of our sessions lead.
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.
Pedro is an amazing life coach who's guidance has been unparalleled. He is extremely honest, loving, and full of confidence. I highly recommend Pedro to anyone looking for some help navigating through a difficult part of life.
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.
Going through a divorce is not only traumatic and highly emotional, but in todays economy, it can also be financially crippling. My spouse and I couldnt afford attorneys, and we thought we had no options until a friend referred us to Elenie. Elenie was professional, kind, and patient throughout our process. We had a meeting with her within a week of our free consultation. Her approach was calming, but directed. With her expert guidance she was able to help us reach an agreement within only one session. I dont think we would have had the same success with an expensive attorney. I highly recommend to anyone needing mediation services to give Elenie a call. Her rates are very affordable, and she was very talented at getting my spouse and I to feel safe to express our true feelings. No one had to be the bad guy. When you learn that she has been doing this type of work for over 20 years, it makes sense, she seems like a natural. I really cant say enough about how helpful she was during an incredibly stressful time in my life. And on top of her mediation skills, she provided us with the necessary forms to complete on our own, saving us from incurring filing fees. A double win!
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.
Judy’s program is so valuable in every way. I felt it was a very essential program for everyone in whatever stage of life to take a pause and reassess and refresh. Judy ISN the real jewel behind it. She brings an energy and enthusiasm to every call. She helps you see things you may not have seen yourself with each weeks work, and is able to personalize the material to each client. I have referred her to Teo close friendship who also rave about how fundamentally important and life’s changing the programs are. Judy is part coach, part psychologist, part mentor, part everything. She really brings so much insight and experience. I loved this program and her guidance in making it a part of my life.
• I have been to several therapists in the past and am usually very skeptical of life coaching and therapy When I began phone sessions with Grace, she was able to help me discover what was really at the bottom of my concerns and how I viewed the world. She gave me guidance to start me on a journey of self introspection. Grace very quickly helped me feel that the road to self-development and happiness is a rewarding one in which I have a trustworthy ally. She helped me understand my needs for stability, become successful in my home and personal life and I have become a stronger person because of her. I highly recommend Grace.
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.
My training with Branden Nicholson has been a wonderful experience. I started training with Branden a year and a half ago with the desire to get healthier and with his motivation and guidance I am now in the best shape of my life at 30 years old. Training sessions are always new and exciting and I always get pushed to my limit. This is one of the things that I love about how Branden trains, he pushes you further than you would push yourself and further than you think that you are capable of. And yet time and time again I am amazed at what I can accomplish, this is something that I am able to take and apply to other areas of my life. It is much more than just the physical that improves through each workout but also confidence and mental drive. I am extremely blessed to have Branden as my trainer.
Miriam has been coaching my family and I for the last year. It has opened up a whole new world for me, not only in my personal and family life, but in my business and career. Miriam has helped me set certain goals, and has been there for me every step of the way until they were achieved with tremendous success. With both my children being coached as well, it has lifted their self esteem, and today are thriving academically and socially. I highly recommend Miriam. Her trustworthy nature, sensitivity, and strong skills will give you the tools to have your life transformed to the levels you always dreamed of. I know my life changed for the best, thanks to her! For that, I am forever grateful!
I worked with Carlyle and he was an integral part of our team. As a Spiritual Counselor, his gentle nature made it easy and natural for people to feel comfortable and connected to him. He also brought humor and support to his colleagues. He was always "present" with whomever he was with and was always reliable to his team and the people he served. I would highly recommend him to anyone that was in need of support or guidance. Yvonne Dolinka,MSW
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.
One of the most powerful aspects of working with Sepideh is her commitment to playing the game of life full out and with an open heart! The level of Fun, Joy and Excitement that she embodies everyday is ruly inspiring. After a short time, with her guidance I was able to authentically cultivate and bring forward similar inspired states of being within myself. Her kind and unconditionally loving presence made me feel at ease so I was able to honestly communicate about the challenging circumstances I was going through. Her vast knowledge of Spiritual Psychology, powerful coaching techniques and a beautiful heart-centered awareness is what really allowed me to feel into what I was experiencing. Specifically, what made a difference for me is that she was really THERE, patiently holding space for the transformation to occur. She has a diverse coaching skill set and a consciousness that holds and challenges you to work through your own unique process in a beautiful way. My results include personal transformations, new levels of spiritual evolution and a greater feeling of self-love after each and every session.
