I trained with Patrick for just over 2 years and made great progress in my weight loss. Patrick is a motivator and always kept me in check. If you have the will to make a change in your lifestyle and need a great coach, trainer and friend - look Patrick up and schedule a time to meet. You will not be disappointed.

I've been working with Pat for over 1 year and I must admit, it has been terrific! I sought Pat's help for my own coaching business. I have a history of starting and stop, but to this date, I am still going strong, and this outstanding. Besides the obvious help with the coaching business side of things, Pat has helped me become really aware of habits/tendency's I never knew existed that have been slowing me chronically. Furthermore, Pat has gone above and beyond to help me in situations when my person life was experiencing some turmoil. All in all, Pat is a terrific coach, he helps you stay positive, focus on what's working, overcome challenges, and believe in yourself. If Pat messages you, my suggestion is you reach out and talk to him. You won't regret it! Diarmuid

Laura is a natural relationship and life coach: intuitive, insightful, supportive, positive, human. She asks us pertinent questions that we don't see for ourselves. My partner and I have been doing coaching with Laura with a focus on how we communicate with one another, trust, staying in the present, keeping an eye on our pasts so we do not unconsciously let the past have too much influence on how we do our present. I recommend her interventions without hesitation.

Loren Michaels Harris auditioned and won a spot in our cast to read "LOST OR FOUND" in the 2016 Listen to Your Mother: Southwest Michigan show which I produce and co-direct locally. He. Was. Fabulous! Wonderful to work with. Very open to suggested edits and coaching. He is so clear on his message that he speaks off-the-cuff as smoothly and confidently as he reads a prepared piece. He was cool under pressure and absolutely delivered. A consummate professional. I would work with him anytime!

I started working with Julie on my resume “thinking” I had to get a different job. Over the last few years my business was down. Waaaaaay down. Julie asked me a ton of questions about my job and how my business worked. She came up with an outstanding resume for me. In the process she gave me some valuable information on how to re-market my current business. Her tips were so worth-wild and practical that my business is back up and doing so well, I’m no longer looking for another job.”Thank you Julie, you are the best”!

Joanna is unlike any interview coach I have had before, the approach she has to her clients was something to admire, and I looked and researched a few interview coaches before I decided to go with Negotiation Geek. Joanna has experience working HR in a Fortune 500 company, offers great advice, and she puts forth the most solid effort I have ever seen from a career coach in getting to know her clients’ needs before a session is established. This isn’t a cookie cutter coaching session, I was very impressed when she helped me prep for an interview for a Fortune 500 company, she reached out to her network who worked for the company to give me advice on the hiring process, taught me how to search for clues in the job posting, and asked me some very tough questions in our mock interview session. As a result of her game planning and the preparation skills it left me, I was well prepared for the interview, and it wasn’t nearly as hard as my mock interview with Negotiation Geek. I would recommend Joanna again and again to anyone who needs to prepare for an interview, and her salary negotiation skills are top notch and have helped me establish a better salary for the jobs I have been interviewing for. Joanna is awesome, and she even followed up with me after the interview to see how it went! Joanna is an amazing coach and I trust her because she’s put in the work in corporate America HR and she truly cares about her clients’ success. Go with Negotiation Geek and you will not be disappointed!

When Rephoel first approached me about trying coaching I wasn’t sure if I would benefit from it. I was skeptical about coaching, in general, and, I haven’t had the most success in the areas of health and wellness. I, generally, find it difficult to talk about myself and my problems. Since a few of my business associates had mentioned coaching, and how it helped them with their businesses, I decided to give it a try (even though Rephoel isn’t a business coach). I committed to a 90-day program. Coaching turned out to be very beneficial. By being forced (gently, of course) to talk about my problems, and myself, I came to a few important realizations. Most importantly, my problems are not unique. The self-esteem issues I had been using as an excuse are a problem for many people. The internal dialogue I have is also normal, but is not truthful. I came to realize that nothing tragic was going to happen if I put myself out there. As I pushed myself to talk to more people, I realize that I have value and people like me. I still struggle, but recalling the positive responses helps. I have also made progress with my diet. While I didn’t lose as much as I originally hoped, I was able to lose 15 lbs., which I have kept off. I also learned some new tools to help with overeating and setting myself up for dieting success. I am now better able to make decisions for lasting changes. My coaching experience has benefitted me. Not only has it helped with my health, but it has helped me personally and professionally. While the general subject of the coaching is health and wellness, it touches so many areas of life. I highly recommend this coaching program, and Rephoel. If you have doubts, give it a try anyway! Make a commitment and do it! Thank you Rephoel for introducing me to coaching and showing me that my preconceived notions were wrong. You have helped me more than I could ever have imagined.

February 2016 Recommendation Letter Regarding Christine Milostan from Milostan Creativity I am writing this letter to express my appreciation to Christine Milostan for her exemplary service and organizational skills during a painting event she hosted for us. I am a teacher from Glenside Middle School and decided to put together a painting party for our staff so that we can enjoy bonding together outside of our typical workday. The event was on a Friday night at Glendale Lakes Golf Club, and we had 80 people in attendance. As a teacher, and in graduate school, I lead quite a busy life. Christine made the planning of the event extremely easy for me which I appreciated the most. There wasn’t much for me to do except tell her how many people were attending and for me to pick a painting! She was accessible at all times and she was easy going. I would contact her via phone or text message and she was always available to talk to about the party. A few times our attendance numbers fluctuated and she was completely understanding. Her pricing was very affordable for all of us as well. Last, all I needed to do was show up to the event! Christine and her crew set everything up and were ready when the event started. Since we had a large number of people painting, Christine brought plenty of other staff members to accommodate us. No one ever ran out of paint, and each table had a clear view an artist painting. Plus, the artists would walk around, check on us, and help give us tips if we wanted advice. The pacing of the event was seamless. Most importantly, we all had fun! Christine was energetic, funny, and creative which was just what we needed. When it was all over she took pictures of our group and her crew cleaned everything up. It was a pleasure working with her and I will definitely contact her again for future events. Laura Marzullo

Tara is an amazing coach. I have been working with her for the past 6 months for my major career and life transitions. She helped to create an individualized plan to help me to realize my skills and abilities that I could apply to manifest my dream job. She helped me realize what was holding me back and the changes I needed to make to go forward. She also gave me mindfulness tools to cope with the stress that I've been going through. My life has changed for the better and I cannot recommend Tara highly enough!

About

Most coaching starts with a process of getting to know the client. While all well and good we believe that your greatest talents and abilities can get easily lost in focusing on all the things that are wrong or that need to change missing an opportunity to start with strengths. It changes the whole relationship when you start with strengths awareness. We all change by identifying our NEEDS, defining a VISION, evaluating the SKILLS we need and then taking ACTION. Using the 80/20 Principle we simply are better at helping our clients focus on the right things and eliminate everything else. One of our favorite saying is Who cares??? in response to stuff that just doesn't matter.

About

I have a degree in counseling psychology with a special interest in geropsychology. I will meet with your senior and assess an appropriate at-home plan that will encompass psychological interventions that have been proven to lessen anxiety and isolation symptoms of the elderly. Validity therapy and life review are 2 effective treatments, currently. Depending on the severity of the client's symptoms, weekly in-home visits are possible, and even daily check-ins are available and effective for a very reasonable fee based on individual client's needs. My company's mission statement is to treat all individuals with dignity while providing the client and their family with the tools needed to keep their loved ones in their home for as long as possible.
