Vladimire Calixte is more than a counselor or psychologist, she is really human when she meets with you but at the same time, also very professional. When you visit her office it doesn't feel clinical - its set up such that it feels very comfortable in every way - with her welcoming and accepting demeanor, and the ambiance she's created in her office. If you choose Vladimire as your counselor or life coach, you will see very soon if not immediately that she truly has a passion for what she does and has true compassion, and the knowledge and professional skills to help you get through difficult times or grow the way you've wanted to. Vladimire gives real feedback that applies to your life and situation. I have been dealing with some crises in my life and very difficult situations and every time I go, I come out feeling much better and stronger emotionally. She has a way of balancing listening and letting you talk but not just nodding and asking you questions, she gives you great feedback that will truly help you progress in your life and mentally and emotionally. She is naturally good at doing what she does and you will gain so much from seeing her - I feel lucky to be able to work with her, and I'm confident you will too.

Tom is my life coach for over 10 years now! He is always available or makes himself available when needed. He has helped me with finances, work, business and relationship advise. Tom has been a great motivator for when I needed that extra push. I recommend him to anyone.
We're off to a great start! I just signed on for a 3 month life coaching cycle with Jerry and am very pleased. I had my 1st coaching skype session earlier this week and gained much clarity and many useful takeaways both through our session and through the discovery questionnaire she gave me to do prior. Life is already feeling better. Jerry is very responsive, kind and professional!
Justin is amazing teacher. He knew right away what are my weakness and gave great advice on how to handle it. Pay attention to my strength and weakness. He taught me how to control my mind and how to prepare well physically and mentally before giving a talk. My most challenging part is nervousness and he patiently trained me how to tackle it. what I like is how to change self-induced negative ideas to positive thoughts while preparing for a talk.I would highly recommend him to my friends.
Absolutey excellent job I've never had a constant coach at my fingertips Was excellent to have someone with me on the journey Down 29 lbs. feeling great and high energy
"It's funny, but you can be so good at identifying brand attributes and communicating consumer benefits for your clients, but when it comes to doing the same for yourself, it seems to be an insurmountable task. Joanne helped me to identify what value I would bring to a new position and what I wanted in a new job. When an offer came, Joanne was there to coach me through negotiations. As I progress through the new company, I know that circumstances will arise where I will need to think through my approach. And Joanne will be there to coach me through it."
Carmel is an excellent Life Coach! She was able to help me shift my thinking and see how my thoughts were creating my experience. She is compassionate, and helped me gain clarity of my situation.
Before working with Jim, I exercised occasionally, but never felt like I was getting anywhere. I mountain biked, played with the kids and ran with my dog, and generally considered myself in OK shape (albeit 15lbs heavier than I should be). My workout runs were typically 2-3 miles at top speed (around 7:30 pace, and my Heart Rate would max out around 180bpm). I didn’t enjoy these “all out” runs, and would usually dread going out for my next run. I’m the type of person who likes to succeed at whatever I’m doing, so I’d exercise in “bursts”. During a burst, I’d exercise frequently and would enjoy seeing my pace improve from 8:00/mile down to 7:17/mile (my personal best 2.5 miles). When I stopped seeing improvement (or got injured), exercise would drop down my priority list, I’d stop for a while and would pick it up again a few months later when I had time. In retrospect, my workout regime was unenjoyable and unsustainable. In March 2013 I weighed 187lbs and felt generally unhealthy and out of shape, so started running. I reached out to Jim and mentioned to him that I was running and he started asking questions. It quickly became clear to me that Jim knew a ton about how to train, and he offered to help coach me. On Jim’s advice, I started wearing a Garmin watch and HR monitor on my runs so he could track my workouts. After a few runs he evaluated my situation as: 1. I have a gifted heart rate (who knew?) so had good potential 2. I was running one type of workout (short+fast), and needed to: a. Slow down and get in more miles, and b. Do different types of workouts, each with its own specific purpose 3. Change my diet to get off my “sugar cycle” and shift and my metabolism to become efficient at burning fat Jim said if I followed his program that I would accomplish things I wouldn’t think possible. I figured I’d give it a try. It turns out that following Jim’s recommendations were easy to do. In fact, switching to longer, slower runs made the whole running experience dramatically more enjoyable. I actually looked forward to going out on runs because I was didn’t suffer the way I used to. Jim also gave me some interesting podcasts and books on the topics of health and fitness; I’d listen to them while running on the trail and get more informed and motivated. I found it very motivating to have Jim monitoring my exercise. I’d send him a report after every workout including the Garmin file; he’d analyze it and give specific recommendations on what workout to do next, diet, recovery, sleep, injury prevention, etc. During this period (April 2013-July 2013) I got the exercise bug. I talked to Jim or emailed every day and was really enjoying it, but I was still running much slower than I used to; I probably averaged 9-10 minute mile pace and hadn’t done anything near my 7:17/mile record. I couldn’t see the results, but Jim constantly analyzed the heart rate, pace, elevation profile of my runs and assured me that I was getting much fitter. It turned out that he was right. He was Mr. Miyagi and I was the Karate Kid. I did a sprint triathlon with some colleagues from work in Aug-2013. Despite never having ridden a road bike and being a weak swimmer, my fitness allowed me to finish 3rd in my age group, and (to my surprise) I ran the 5k at 7:02/mile pace after having swum 750 meters and biked 12 miles. After this, I started seeing some amazing improvements: • Aug 2013: Weight had dropped from 187lbs to 163lbs; resting heart rate had dropped from 70 to 48bpm • Oct 2013: Olympic triathlon: 28th of 204 people. Ran 10k at 6:58/mile (after 0.9 mile swim + 24 mile bike) • Feb 2014: Half marathon: 6:44/mile pace (finished top 5%) • Mar 2014: Sprint triathlon: won age group. 11th of 194 people. Ran 6:27/mile pace (after swim + bike) • April 2014: Olympic triathlon: Ran 6:48/mile pace (after 0.9 mile swim + 25 mile bike) • May 2014: Trail Half Marathon (>2,000’ of gain): 3rd overall out of 134 participants (1:44, 7:56 per mile pace) • July 2014: Half Ironman (“70.3”): 76th of 2535. I even beat 5 pros. Qualified for 70.3 world champs in my first 70.3 • Sep 2014: 70.3 World Championships: 902nd/2235. I raced well and enjoyed it (the competition was very fast) • Nov 2014: Ironman Arizona. 10 hours 46 minutes. 170th of ~3000 (top 6%) despite injury issues. • 2015 Season: 2 Ironmans, a 70.3, a sprint (won age group) and an Olympic (8th overall out of 608 athletes!) It has been really fun to improve this quickly. Jim’s transformation approach has made it enjoyable and sustainable. If I hadn’t worked with Jim, my March 2013 exercise burst would have ended a month later, I’d probably still weigh in the 180s, be doing bursts of exercise and my fitness goal would still be to break my 7:17/mile record. Instead, I’ve successfully and sustainably transformed my health and fitness. I set a goal in early 2014 to qualify for the 70.3 and Ironman world championships. A year ago, that goal would have seemed (1) unachievable and (2) completely insane. Now I’m half way there. I know it IS possible, and more importantly I’m enjoying the journey. I talk to Jim daily by email or on the phone. No matter how much faster/fitter I get, I find it immensely helpful to have Jim pore over the details of my workouts, provide feedback, prescribe new workouts, rest, sleep, injury advice, nutrition ideas, equipment, motivation and goal setting. My goals and exercise program will change, but my transformation is permanent. Jim’s approach made it possible.
I had the extreme pleasure of working with Gillian at Shiftability Coaching. This was my first experience with any type of coaching. As a parent, I was completely distraught over a decision to have my young children enroll in public school in the suburbs or stay in the city and keep them in private school. Gillian's thought provoking questions and exercises allowed me to differentiate between my feelings of fear and instinct. Within 4 sessions I was able to make a decision with joy and confidence! Gillian is very kind, friendly and easy to talk to. I felt her guidance came from a place of genuine and authentic interest in my journey. I honestly cannot say enough about my experience. Thank you Gillian. I felt as though I was talking to a dear friend!
I think hiring a business coach is the best decision I made and I am sorry that it took me a long time to make that decision. Josh is an amazing coach and human being. After just 2 sessions, I realized the important things I have to improve on and work on. I am looking forward to a long relationship with Josh and I will recommend him to everyone I know. Thank you Josh!
David is by far not your ordinary image consultant! His expertise, knowledge, and sense of style aims to set you up for success both professionally and personally. He brings the best out of you (externally) by understanding and exposing what is within you (internally). In other words, your revamped image is based on your personality. This builds and creates "true" image, and individual style and stamina for the long-term! Not only that, he goes over and beyond by providing you positive feedback as a mentor and life coach. At the end of the day, thanks David - I nailed that interview! :-) You are the real deal!
At the time I met Brent Piper, (a chance meeting), I was thinking about all of the things I needed to do on the last leg of my life. Trouble is I feel stuck and very tired. I was surprised his office is located in the Wall Street area. I was looking forward to getting some answers to my delema and what to do about it. After several meetings, telling him about my life, I was a little disappointed I was'nt told mm what to do. What I learned is that it is up to me to make choices and to act on them. Brent points out certain gestures and feelings that I am not aware of. He gets me to role play and also speak honestly to the people who have had a negative impact on me; that certain words or actions towards me have hindered me in life. Sometimes I feel like stopping the sessions for fear of revealing too much. But then, I feel there is more work to do. The real stuff is just beginning and Brent can help me the way a theater director helps an actor make a breakthrough. I look forward to our sessions.
I was initially skeptical about "life" coaching. Why would I need it if everything seemed ok"? On my journey with Eli I discovered that ok is acceptable, but abundance is a conscious choice and there for the taking - if I wanted it. And not only did I want it - I found it. Eli is incredibly smart and intuitive, creative and able to think out of the box yet very structured in his approach. I felt his experience in professional sports was unusual and refreshing- and greatly benefitted our interaction. I liked the elegance of his thinking process, his flexibility and his ability to listen and ask the right questions. Many times over, he challenged me to think outside of my comfort zone. Identifying and addressing certain issues and hence developing strategies together was an amazing process which made me feel empowered and in control.
“I have been dealing with self confidence issues for a long time. This stops me from taking on new challenges and getting ahead in my career. I tend to postpone doing new things or to over prepare before delivering new work. Amber is the perfect coach for me. She helps me gain greater self awareness and stay focused on my goal. Step by step I have learnt how to create new behaviors that strengthen my confidence in my day to day life. It is a life changing experience." merci beaucoup! Sophie
I have worked with Angelique Mercurio as her student and very much appreciate her deep knowledge and sincere integrity. She has an innate ability to meet you where you are and communicate effectively and productively. Working with her is easy yet challenging because she operates from a place of authenticity and no personal agenda. Whether teaching or coaching, Angelique Mercurio clearly demonstrates a seasoned level of knowledge and experience and a passion for what she does. Her understanding of Emotional Intelligence and coaching in general has helped to propel her into being a credible force and expert in this area.
Peter has been such an incredible advocate in my journey towards coming home to myself and my heart’s true calling. I have been working with Peter weekly for almost a year and I truly cannot imagine where I would be today without him. He has a no bullshit approach, which I find refreshing and an enormous heart, in which he takes you into -- which in itself is very nurturing when doing such deep and meaningful work. He has the ability to hold space for what is emerging in me and lovingly guides and challenges me to embrace what it is I am here for and the path I have chosen. In my time coaching with Peter I have gained focus and confidence in my abilities and skills, maintaining a groundedness that was previously quite fleeting and difficult to maintain. I highly recommend coaching with Peter if you are on a path of personal truth and seeking radical transformation and change in your life. It’s quite incredible to have this kind of support in my life. Thank you, Peter!
Toni is very motivating! Our weekly phone calls and food diaries she request from me keep on track. Not only diet-wise, she has also become kind of like a life coach using her nutritional and diet knowledge to help me deal with other personal aspects of life. I have recommended her to other friends who I know are also very happy with her services!
