I didn't fully understand the role of a life coach until I started working with Judy. At first our work was rather concrete. I needed help to identify, set and achieve various goals for myself. Recently, our work has become a bit more esoteric. Now I find myself exploring questions like "How can I be more self-accepting, self-assertive, purposeful, mindful....?" Working with Judy is like having a built in support system. She is compassionate, knowledgeable and passionate about her work. I greatly value her perspective and truly love learning more and more about myself.
Tom has shown that he genuinely cares about how, when, and if I progress. He is invested in whether I actually achieve breakthroughs toward my personal success. Considering that my goals are so immense: to metamorphosize an ashamed, unhappy, ineffective, & lonely guy, with limited professional influence, into a proud, happy, effective, socially fulfilled, & profoundly influential version of myself, it would have been easy for him to give up on me. Even though I'm confident many life coaches in his position would have terminated our relationship months ago, dealing with such a high-maintenance client as myself - expressing to him hundreds of suggestions / criticisms / requests, expecting a personalized experience that caters to my individual needs, and offering frequent pessimism or guarded skepticism at best - he has been patient, flexible, & determined to support my progress. It has been several months since Tom started coaching me, and I have consciously delayed writing a review until I might have a sense not just that he cares and won't give up (after all, that's part of the job description), but that he will actually help me transform myself, in ways that countless others haven't. I have worked with therapist after therapist for years & years, undergone treatment with psychiatrists, hired dozens of countless project collaborators and personal assistants, and tried more times than I can remember to count on the support of family and friends in order to help me make the steady progress needed to break out of a deep debilitating personal rut that has lasted for decades. All of the above have been unsuccessful. I naturally wasn't expecting Tom to be any different. But I gave him a shot, deciding that I deserved a chance for renewed hope. I almost gave up on him and on myself, but he didn't give up on either. And finally, after months of 'blood, sweat, and tears,' I have come to believe there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I'm beginning to make steady transformative progress, and I'm looking forward to the journey that lies ahead. Prerequisites for success: I have to be patient, make a few reasonable leaps of faith, and make an investment in my future, emotionally and financially. I also have to be an active participant and be willing to gradually take the reins myself. I finally have to accept his limitations, while recognizing and counting on his strengths. His limitations: Tom is not a miracle worker, and in comparison to others I've worked with, he's not the most charismatic, inspiring, eloquent, forward, original, perceptive, intellectual, tech-savvy, exciting, or assertive. But his STRENGTHS far outweigh these limitations: He is persistent in his efforts. He is determined to be an ally on the road to victory, offering extra support when needed, never conceding defeat. He is compassionate, showing empathy for my experiences & struggles, frustrations and pain, & and my initial often-pessimistic attitude. He is patient, and will put in the time to understand, listen, and reevaluate / regroup when necessary. He is humble and modest, not expecting recognition, praise, notoriety, credit, or gratitude for going above and beyond. He is affordable, & ends up charging far less money than he could for his time, and far less than any of the other life coaches I considered, let alone being a mere fraction of the cost of a therapist or psychiatrist! He is respectful, as a friend would be, but sensitive & honors any boundaries I set. He never speaks down to me. He is honest, and when requested, very candid about what he thinks needs improvement, more, focus, or a shift in perception. He doesnt rub me the wrong way as a salesman might, as though Im a source of income, but always treats me like a person who deserves to achieve his dreams. He is passionate about helping people. He works very hard, often going above and beyond what others would do, putting his clients ahead of his personal life. He is fair, respects agreements, honors his word, readily forgives, and shows lenience. He is creative, willing to try to approach problems from new perspectives and angles. He is open-minded, willing to work with approaches and systems hes unfamiliar with that I know are likely to be effective. He is trusting, and gives me the benefit of the doubt, while also helping me to become more accountable. He is reliable, and I have been able to count on him in ways I couldnt count on therapists, employees, mentors, friends, & family. His system of "open access" helps me throughout the week, and this unique system of coaching has been the key to my success, helping me beat procrastination and not lose sight of my goals. He is flexible, & accommodates limitations, changes, and conflicts with my schedule, deficiencies in my attitude, and treats my perceived failures like learning opportunities to take a new, more promising approach. He is resilient, and puts up with much more than necessary for someone in his position, and never complained once to me about it. Finally, he is kind, complimentary, and friendly. He's like that 'conscience on your shoulder.' I would recommend him to anyone who is considering hiring a life coach, or to anyone who has unfulfilled dreams they know they deserve to and could achieve, but haven't. Thank you, Tom, for your efforts, and quality work :)
My name is Kimberly, I will turn 48 in one week and...... I am very impressed with MYSELF lately!! WoW!! I don't remember the last time I said that about ME!!!! This is HUGE! My life coach Glo, supplies me with the tools to reach my goals!!! I have to do the work, she holds me accountable! The results are life changing- I highly recomend Glo to anyone who can "see their goals... almost touch" them even, but just needs that extra help on how to organize the route to reach them.....
There was an instant comfort I felt with Judy. I had never gone to therapy before and she put me at ease almost instantly. I started having sessions with her at a really difficult time in my professional career, and there were times when I thought I was doing everything I could, but she helped me realize there were more options and other avenues of achieving my goals that I hadn't even explored. Our sessions together really helped me through some very dark times in my life and when I couldn't afford therapy anymore after I lost my job and health insurance plan, she continued to send me text messages just to make sure I was doing ok. She is incredibly thoughtful and has given me valuable tools for handling anxiety and difficult work relationships.
Maggie is a very inspiring and outstanding life coach. She will give you very directed advice that is for your well-being. She motivates others and promotes holistic ways of healing.
Karl's experience as a life coach and sports coach have helped my son thrive. He gives clear direction and his enthusiasm to share his knowledge offers tools that will last my son a lifetime. Thank you!
After working with Angela for many years, I can confidently say she has changed my life. Her positive energy and motivational words have been so inspirational. Whether it was coaching me with men, business or just every day dilemmas also shifted my outlook after our sessions. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a life coach!
Jessica and her team did an excellent job with several employees in our workplace who needed help improving their English speaking ability. They had accents that were at times hard to understand. The classes provided by ACI helped improve their confidence, accent and communication skills. There was a huge noticeable difference after the sessions they attended. In addition, the feedback was very positive from the students. They said the classes were interactive and fun. I highly recommend this company for anyone struggling with these issues.
Michael is a very knowledgeable person and highly focused in exceed his students expectations. He is more than a teacher, he is an excellent coach who helped me during tough moments with wise advises. His flexibility allows his students to tailor-made their lessons according their priorities and needs.
Very good. Highly recommended
I was pleasantly surprised at the rapid results I achieved with Jeff at Peak Results Coaching. I would recommend him to others.
(First, please understand that my delay in writing this testimonial should not reflect on Andrea, it is my own busy schedule that has made it take so long) I worked with Andrea about 7-8 years ago. It was at a time when my life was stable and I was looking to better myself. What I most remember was how easy it was to connect with her. Simple phone calls when my kids were young made this possible. The thing I most remember from beginning to work with Andrea was how small the steps were that she asked me to take. The first was to drink more water. Really?! I could definitely do that!! I was set up to succeed and hungry for more. To this day, when life begins to get away from me, I return to the simple statement of 'drink more water' to get me on track. I have been through divorce, the death of two parents, many, many life changes and a horrific community event. Somehow, I have been able to make it through it all by not getting caught up in the 'drama' of the situations. She taught me to feel, accept, continue on. Because of her, I try not to let my ego rule, and feel that I am able to truly look for the best outcome for everyone involved, even if this does not produce MY most desirable outcome. Tonight I am facing a challenge. I rented The Secret. Andrea had given me the CD when we were working together. I had heard about it, and so ironically, she mailed it to me. (It has since lost one CD to an old car CD player that was removed from my car...). Watching the DVD has allowed me to refocus and move my thoughts back to gratitude and positivity. Such a simple move, but one I would not have done without her introduction. I am so grateful to know Andrea.
Kayshias life coaching has seriously turned my life back to the right way up. Before I met Kayshia, I was very negative about life. Everything bad that could happen did and I continued to have a negative mindset because of it. After I started talking to Kayshia and going to her for life coaching, everything changed. The world seemed brighter and every day seemed better. That may sound corny but I am serious. Kayshia was able to help me focus on what was bringing me down in my life, focus on what was important, and find ways to stay positive. When I was getting ready to take the bar exam for the 4th time, I called Kayshia and spoke with her on how to get myself mentally prepared. She was there for me every step of the way. The best part is that she helps point me in the right direction but allows me to find the answer on my own. I now think nothing but positive and everything about my life has gotten better. I even passed the bar exam! If you feel lost or you need that person to help you step in the right direction, Kayshia is genuine and caring and professional, and she will get you there.
Donna couldn't walk up or down a full flight of stairs when She went in to see Carolyn. When she came out she walked up a full flight of stairs without having to use the railing at all!!!!! Her physical life changed from that day on! She would give Carolyn 7 stars if possible.
