Stephen helped me in identifying the correct techniques that will improve my health overall. Prior to hiring Stephen, I was doing on my own. But now, I learned how to do it "right" all the time. Stephen is really cool and great to work with. I am very impressed with his honesty, always arrives 5 mins earlier to the class. He trained me and my Wife with full focus and guidance. Stephen incorporated our needs, goals and home gym as part of his training. We both enjoyed working with Stephen. My wife and I are now full ready and motivated to continue on our own going forward. Thanks Stephen for all your help and patience in accommodating our challenging work schedule.

Honestly I had no idea I was working with him! I had seemed his service in requesting help with my health and with my career. I was instantly drawn to him and felt like I could open up with him! I can’t say it was an easy route bc by far it wasn’t! This experience has been by far one of the hardest obstacles I’ve ever had to encounter! I’ve been back in school and pretty much training myself through the whole process or at least it felt like I was alone struggling to make this happen but I’m now realizing that I have a whole Network of people on my side! You guys have given me what they call tough Love! I feel like a renewed & young again (speaking of mentally!) LoL I am just getting started! Have a whole life ahead of me! I’ll never be done learning! Always be helping, contributing, giving, achieveing and being all I can be! If for some reason I fail at a job I’ll still have my children and my children are the most important thing in this world to me! I’ve lost my twin sister years back and my life has been downward since then! John , thank you for that tough Loving! They are the reason I’ve changed! I thank God everyday for helping me to overcome my issues I once had! I look forward to coaching right along side of John! We all need to start helping one another even the small things can make a huge difference ! Anyone like to join in on change?! All is welcome! I’d like to thank all of those that were involved! God Bless each and everyone of you! To everyone’s success! Few others I’d like to mention , Palm beach Research Group, Marketers Traders Institute, Social Security, NBC, CBS, Funnel X Project, Go Daddy,Click Bank, Sen,.....there’s many many more! Forgive me in advance to those I haven’t mentioned. Once again God Bless I love you all! Together we can...CHANGE

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!

I’ve been working with Mo for the past month (3 times a week) and it’s been a really great experience. He pushes you enough where you can safely exceed your previous limits. He also has a great attitude about life that’s infectious. My main goal was to lose weight, and I’ve been able to do that under his guidance. I just scheduled for another month and intend to stick with Mo because I’m very pleased with the results I’ve seen thus far. I highly recommend him!

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!

I was really anxious and miserable because I had to go off my antidepressant medication during my pregnancy. Not only your coaching skills but your complete psychotherapeutic experience helped me learn to manage my stress levels and to prioritize my work schedule to find time for my own self nurture. You gave me many parenting resources and I feel confident and happy as a mother to Rebecca. First I was skeptical about my hability to get thrue this period without medication, but your guidance made all the difference in my daugther's and my own wellbeing. Thank you, your support got me through a very difficult time.

I hired Kat 6 months ago. I used to be super embarrassed to admit I hired a life coach because most life coaches I met are so full of BS. One example was when I met a life coach who helped people level up in their career, while revealing that she’s still drives for Uber to make ends meet. Nothing wrong with driving for Uber, but come on. It wasn’t until I met Kat at an education dinner. She introduced herself as a “life coach” and I thought “Oh boy, here we go again.” But Kat not only had such great answers to the big questions I asked, she backed it up with frameworks that I actually resonated with. So she read a lot books - big whoop. Then I found out that she ran Seth Godin’s AltMBA community. Whoa! We had a deep 1 hour convo. Not only did she get life, Kat also understood the business/startup side of things. She really impressed me. I wanted to make big changes in my life and asked her for help. I hired her for 1 session and I found so much value, I worked with her every week for the next 6 months. Kat’s help had the biggest impact to my personal growth out of anyone I’ve ever met. - She found the main reason why I’ve failed every single diet/workout plan in my life. Back then, eating fast food every day would be an understatement. Giving up new workout plans became routines my friends would constantly call me out on. Then Kat and I worked on a solution to fix that. Fast forward to today, I’m literally in the best shape of my life starting with foundational habits/mindsets that only goes uphill from here. - Kat helped me sound board topics on my mind to help me find clarity: what I want in my career, what I want out of my romantic relationships, what it means to be authentic, what my North Star is, and so much more. Not all life coaches are BS - some are great and can literally change your life. Kat is one of those special humans - I owe a lot of my success in 2017 (and the future) to her help.

I met Beth at Sonoma State University where I attended her career development course. I was looking for some guidance on how to advance/ launch a business idea that I had been thinking about in Branding & Web Design. Being a millennial and a brand new mom I was a little worried about wether or not I would receive the value I needed from Beth. Boy, was I wrong! Beth exceeded my expectations in more ways than one. Beth gave me multiple valuable tools to use to launch my business and help me be successful. During our coaching sessions there was NEVER a dull moment and I absolutely loved the humor Beth brought each time we met and was always sad when our time came to an end. One of my favorite things about working with Beth is she always showed me my strengths and what I had to offer other people. Working with her helped build my confidence and see myself for the business woman I always knew I was capable of being.

An unexpected death in the family upended a number of things in my life. I needed some guidance to get back on track to run my business and tackle the new personal challenges I was facing. I was working with another counselor for a few months but did not find much value in my sessions. My wife found Karim so I decided to try one session. Needless to say, I really enjoyed Karim's approach. Karim has acted like a guide to help me identify, process and work on my challenges. I enjoyed his help so much that I also paid to attend a couple of the workshops he hosts outside of regular hours from time to time. I highly recommend talking to Karim at least once and see how you feel. Chances are, you will want to work with him.

Triveni is one of the most complete yoga practices I have ever had the chance to study. I continue to learn something new every single day. Jessica and Stephane's unique experiences and understanding of the eight limbs of yoga have given me new insights into my own practice and helped me to refine not only my asana (physical) practice, but also ground me philosophically. They are teachers of teachers, and we are so lucky to have access to them, especially in a personalized environment. If you have the opportunity, I recommend one-on-one sessions with team Triveni! They'll be able to meet you where you're at in your practice, and provide guidance as you walk down your path of growth! Witness the change and integrate. Whether or not your just starting on your journey or are looking for an energetic charge to your life, try Triveni! - Bodhi

I am so grateful to have Nicole as a mentor and a guiding light. Her coaching style blends her hands-on professional experience with sincerity. Nicole understands people and dynamics quickly and does so through listening. She practices active listening. You will do most of the talking, and she will bring it all together, usually by asking a question. The ah-ha moment! She doesn't dwell on weaknesses, but focuses on strengths. On a professional level, she has helped me navigate through the ranks and carve out a role that fit my skillsets and lifestyle. I've also looked to her for advice when presented with new career opportunities. Based on my experience, I cannot recommend Nicole's services enough. Every mid-level professional deserves an advocate like Nicole.

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!

Arya is a master counselor and life coach. He brings a potent combination of skills into his work: a sincere heart, a highly intelligent mind, and a wealth of professional training and experience. Every session feels expertly held in a professional yet humane container; the real issues are addressed, directly and sometimes sternly, but always with an authentic kindness and care. Arya has helped me to: -cut through my insecurities and obstacles around my artwork -focus in on and take more action with my career in more ambitious and visionary ways -navigate very old and difficult patterns with my family -recognize and begin to authentically relate to things I was avoiding about myself/my life in a way that has led to way more relief, freedom and positive action -and just more generally, being someone in my life I can trust to help me through the ups and downs of being a human I'll share one more thing: though I didn't experience this directly, my dear friends went to Arya for couples coaching/relationship counseling. They said they received incredible benefit from their work with Arya, and that if not for his intervention, they don't know if they would have made it. They spoke about his acute attention to detail, especially in tracking the subtle habitual ways that they would shut down or leave their hearts, while giving them practicable alternatives to create the kind of connected, intimate, and fulfilling relationship they were longing for but couldn't find. There's a reason (many reasons) why Arya is at the top of this yelp list. He is absolutely worth it!

    Jacquie is great. Having her available during my job search made the process so much less stressful. She helped edit my resume, condense and streamline my cover letter, connected me to people she knew in the industry, wrote referral letters and gathered useful feedback regarding my applications. She has a ton of insight and wisdom on how to beef up your resume, how to interpret interview feedback and how to stay grounded & motivated throughout your search. Working with her felt like having a cheerleader, editor, mentor and agent rolled into one awesome package, and I would absolutely recommend that anyone looking to switch jobs, enter the workforce or change careers utilize her services.

    I had an introductory half-hour session with Stephanie, in which we discussed where I am currently in my career, what I'm passionate about, and options for the future. I felt that she really listened not only to my words but my emotions as I spoke and this gave me additional insight into my goals. She provided advice and clarity, in terms of my direction. She was very personable and professional. Overall, I felt that she genuinely cared about helping me and that the session was successful. I would definitely contact her again for assistance with my career goals.

    When Lindsay and I started our work together, I was lost and overwhelmed by the career search. I felt trapped into a prescribed role by my previous job skills, and unable to see a future where I could someday like my job and use my skills to better the world. Lindsay helped me to be realistic and practical about the experiences of my past and my goals for the future. We went through my work history and past roles, and she listened attentively to the challenges and triumphs that led me to where I am today. With her guidance, I was able to clearly come up with a framework for evaluating my next opportunities. She provided human accountability and self-imposed deadlines to keep me on track, and I am pleased to say our work ended with me feeling empowered and in control. Directly through her advice in how to seek out new jobs, I found a part-time role I'm working in now and have a final round interview with a potential dream employer. If you're not sure about career coaching or Lindsay in general, I can't recommend this experience more enthusiastically. She makes the daunting challenge of a career transition feel like an obvious step in the right direction, and for that I am very grateful.
