Brushira has been my life coach for quite some time now. Her approach is very straightforward and well thought out and strategic. She has guided me through many of my biggest life decisions including career moves and salary negotiations. The plus side is, not only is she fully equipped to coach you through your professional life, her guidance is just as valuable for your personal life as well. You won't regret working with her!

Hillary is a remarkably talented athlete, excellent coach, and beyond her success, titles and accomplishments, an authentically inspiring person. I first met Hillary at Crossfit Old County, where I would occasionally drop in for classes. Every class, I learned something new from her keen observation, honest feedback and technical knowledge on the various barbell lifts. I felt each workout was both effective and motivating. Fast forward to four months later, I have built in the habit of consistent exercise (versus before feeling too tired and unmotivated to maintain my fitness), have lost about five pounds of fat and have more energy overall. Hillary takes the time to diligently make sure we record our performance, and I can objectively see the measurable improvement in my strength. Beyond being a skilled and effective coach, Hillary is a national level weightlifting competitor. It is a rare gem to find someone who is currently at a high level at their sport, and also has the ability to be egoless, giving, compassionate and skilled at coaching other people. Hillary embodies a unique combination of life experiences, skill, drive and talent, which makes her wise beyond her years. I always look forward to our classes with Hillary, because it's not just about getting faster or stronger, or "looking good." She motivates others to push past their self imposed limits and/or excuses, and really experience the rewards of honest effort. The positive outcomes (more energy, strength, etc.) are just a natural consequence. Thank you Hillary for your courage, inspiration and dedication to your work. I could not recommend her more highly to anyone who wants to improve and grow.

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.

    I really enjoyed working with Lisa as she helped me navigate through both personal and professional hardships that I just wasn't able to overcome on my own. If you're truly invested in making a positive change for yourself, she's a great coach to work with!

    I found Deesign Life Coaching at a time in my life when I felt change was needed. Both in my personal life and career. And wow was I amazed! Through the mentoring and positive support I received not only the willingness to open my mind, but was given the steps to focus on to help me achieve whatever I set my mind to. I feel like a new person who's been empowered and awakened. I cannot say enough great things about the teaching and guidance provided by DeeSign and highly reccomend that anyone who feels they want change or just want to better some part of their life to give it a try. Thanks again!

    I started rediscovering myself when I discovered Andri. I called for her help two years ago when I was feeling lost and unsure about my career and life purpose. Her unique coaching method and healing process were invaluable and exactly what I needed on the movement forward. I gave her my full trust and in return I got priceless information about myself and my world, whom she turned upside down with her grounded, positive and inspiring counseling. I am now a happy freelancer moving closer to fulfilling my dreams and I thank her for that! Shes not just a life coach for me any more she is a coach for a lifetime and I know I cannot recommend her enough!

    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.

      First, I am so grateful that Ms. Irene Patel has crossed my path at this very time in my life journey. She consistently provides professional and in-depth sound guidance and coaching tools, while also exemplifies deep compassion, empathy, thoughtfulness, and flexibility yet with accountability during our coaching sessions. Irene inspires me through bring her authentic self while following her true calling to this work and also, commitment to others. I feel like in the past five months though our coaching sessions, I have had to (re) connect, (re) discover and (re) evaluate myself (personally and professionally) that have many layers. Its not an easy or at times comfortable task, but I know that I am fully supported along the journey, thanks to Irene. This is truly a gift and I am grateful for this opportunity to receive~Fulfillment Coaching with Irene. Thank you!

      My former employer worked with a 3rd party company called RiseSmart. While I was in between jobs, RiseSmart assigned Stephanie Swanbeck to be my Career Coach. It was my first time working with a company like RiseSmart, so I had no idea what to expect. Words to describe Stephanie: friendly, professional, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, good listener, problem solver. She was very good at listening to me to understand my situation, what skills and experience I had, and how my skills and experience could be scripted to help me land my ideal role. We covered a multitude of topics, including resume writing, common interview questions, and negotiation tactics. Every time I had a question, she was able to come up with a well thought-out response to help me think about things from a different perspective. I really enjoyed working with Stephanie, and I would recommend her to all future clients. If I could, I would give her a 6 out of 5 stars!

        About

        I provide professional and personal life coaching across a wide variety of ages, professions and lifestyles. I have been coaching and giving life guidance for over 12 years. I have assisted a wide variety of clients from teenagers to entire families. I offered an unbiased non judgemental view of individual circumstances and provide several courses of actions based upon individual goals. Communication, relationships, self esteem, fitness, life goals and professional satisfaction all come together to make us who we are. Both times we are too close to the problem and have too many biases to honestly assess the situation. This is where I come in and give you an honest assessment. You may love what I have to say not want to hear it. The truth may hurt but it will also set you free. Let's see if we can change your life for the better.
