Best coach ever!
I've been working out with John for over 3 years, and he has transformed my body. He helped me lose about 13 pounds before my wedding. He's more than just a personal trainer - he's a life and health coach as well. I know if I have any questions about health or what I should be eating, I can always send him a note, and he'll respond. Every workout we do is always different. He keeps things interesting, and I always leave feeling good/sore. John is the best!
Wellspace SF is a wonderful discovery! I was looking for help and guidance around nutrition and relationship to food. I am glad to have found this place. Their response to my initial request to find a nutritionist/food coach was very timely. The folks I communicated with were so professional and caring, and they matched me up perfectly with a nutritionist/food coach who has the perfect background and personality for my needs! I attribute this to careful listening and good questioning. I was able to make an appointment quickly, and we have already had an initial session, and I couldn't be more pleased!
Leslie is a great coach. She really listens, and is very focused on helping you figure out how to move forward.
Melissa's enthusiasm and positivity is infectious and present in everything she brings to the table. She's helped me question and think deeply about what I truly want in life, in both my career and my well being. She's pushed me outside of my comfort zone, and I've grown immensely. I highly recommend Melissa for anyone who is at a crossroads about their future!
The best coaching!!
I spoke with Velina on Skype about the challenges I'm dealing with in my life and she was really helpful. I highly recommend her to anyone having difficulties or needing a good coach in their life. She seems to know a lot and has a lot of experience helping people with all kinds of issues. For me, I really felt like she cared deeply for me and understood me like a close friend and yet is very professional. She is warm and kind. I'm so glad I found her. She helped me so much.
I have had the pleasure of coaching with Summer Simonton regarding my career successes. She "gets" people and life's challenges right away and has been able to quickly guide me down the right path each time. I continue to rely on her coaching and always will. Carole Browne
Working with Lucy Curran on my Vet Tech. resume and cover letter was an amazing experience. Previous to working with Lucy I thought I had a good resume and cover letter. Lucy’s changes to my resume and cover letter made them both look and sound amazing. Her knowledge of knowing how to convey a positive message to an employer made my resume and cover letter really stand out. My new resume is now tailored to fit my personality and skills. I am now proud to present my flawless resume and cover letter to any prospective employer. I am so happy with the help provided by Lucy that I would recommend her to anyone who needs to just start a new resume and cover letter, or to someone who thinks that their resume and cover letter may be good enough.
I consider myself a smart woman with a lot of capacity, but we all get stuck sometimes or have trouble seeing things clearly enough to take solid action. Though Airial's mentorship and tender, fierce coaching at strategic moments in my life I've found my own inner wisdom spring forth and guide me out of stuckness. If you want a rah-rah cheerleader... keep browsing coaches -- and buying books, taking 6 week courses, reading articles and staying overwhelmed with indecision. If you want movement in your life, if you want the keys to unapologetic empowerment (and someone to keep you accountable when you forget your own brilliance), you need Airial Clark. She does that for me and she'll do that for you.
Nicole played a big role in my career development. My issues have been trying to focus on what I want to do and how to do it, and working with Nicole on those issues put me on the right path for success. What I love about Nicole is that she forces you to see the big picture, ask yourself the hard (but necessary) questions, and then identify the steps to reach your goals. I look forward to using Nicole again when I need to navigate life and career changes, which I anticipate will reduce my fear of making those changes, knowing I have her in my back pocket.
I am a mid-career professional seeking to change direction and I couldn’t have ask for a better Career Coach than Dr. Milwid. Dr. Milwid is a skilled guide. She begins by leading you through a self-exploration that helps you understand not only what you’re looking for but also what you have to offer. She then turns tactical and offers extremely helpful and practical guidance for restructuring the primary documents needed for an effective job search: your resume and cover letters. Throughout, Dr. Milwid shares relevant articles and research and brings to bear her decades of experience advising people and her own multi-faceted career. Dr. Milwid is also extremely encouraging and a genuine pleasure to work with. You’ll leave your sessions with Dr. Milwid feeling energized and prepared to embark on a targeted and effective job search. I feel lucky to have worked with her and am confident you’ll feel the same.
I signed up with Coach Tarek after attending one of his seminars Pathway to Maturity. I had some challenges at home and work and Tarek worked with me to understand me and where I am coming from. He then helped me see things in a fresh light, helped me improve my body language and voice. Through a series of exercises he helped me understand my core, find my purpose to my life and where my interests lay. I would highly recommend him as a personal coach.
Cynthia worked with me as a life coach for a couple months. I had talked with a few life/career coaches here and there, and Cynthia was the only one I wanted and chose to work with due to her professionalism, integrity, intelligence and creativity. Even if I was confused or pessimistic, she would work tirelessly to find the positive qualities and kernels of truth I could build on and work from.
I felt at ease with Judy from the moment I met her. She always has a smile on her face and really takes the time to get to know you as she works with you. I was really struggling with some personal problems when I started working with Judy and I am truly a different person now a year later. It can often be scary to seek help or go talk to someone, but Judy made the experience a pleasant one and I highly recommend her if you're looking for a life coach. No matter where you're at in life, we are constantly growing and it was very helpful for me.
I attended a seminar for "Women On the Verge" and had a great time. The seminar was well organized with a very comfortable atmosphere for sharing. I give the credit to coach Susan, who brings a warm and welcoming feeling to the forum.
Mark was professional and easy to work with.
I was looking for someone who doe's taxes and came across Charlotte on thumbtack. I was tired of getting gouged by H&R block. She not only did my taxes for less she got me back more than i would have with H&R. I've also used other services she provides ie; life coaching and financial advice. she motivated me to purchase my first home. Thank you Charlotte so much!!!
I hired Scott to coach me at a time when I was thinking about quitting my job but I wasn't really sure what I would do next. He really helped me expand my thinking beyond my current sense of what was possible for me. We called it "following my tickle," and that mantra helped me to actually quit, and then find my way into what was next. Scott is a master coach who follows his hunches. He helped open so much in me.

I have been recruiting in the Silicon Valley for over a decade. Everything from Engineers to Lawyers - AE's to EA's. Tiny startups all the way to the Fortune 1. I understand that while your resume is a reflection of you, it's true purpose is to open up doors and enable you to tell the rest of the story.
