About:

With a lifetime career in and around special needs in education, and a PhD in Educational Administration which focused on educational transitions from high school to post secondary, I now find myself with a majority of young adult clients who need help getting launched (or re-launched) in independent life. In these cases there has always been loss, emotional trauma and anxiety. In cases where clients are emotionally fragile, I will normally refer to a physician or therapist since coaching best takes place when a client is strong enough to make decisions and act on them.

If you feel that something in your life needs to change or improve, you may be clear about the particular issue you want to address, or perhaps you have yet to identify exactly what you need and want. Either way, I will act as your springboard and support you in refocusing, defining and achieving your goals, and keeping motivated, from the start line to the finish. Looking squarely at your present and past circumstances, I work with you as you take steps toward building the future you want, and I help you integrate your life activities and various roles as your tap your skills and develop them. I am a professional psychotherapist and coach since 2008. I hold qualifications and degrees in coaching and counseling. I am now completing my final year as a doctoral candidate in psychology with an emphasis on performance and clinical interventions. I blend traditional coaching with clinical methods. I also use various supporting modalities such as Biofeedback, Mind-Body Bridging (MBB), hypnotherapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR.) This unique combination of techniques promotes long-lasting changes and maximizes the benefits of coaching.

About:

Hailing from the east coast of Canada I have spent my entire career studying and gaining insight into varied aspects of human behavior... originally working in the fields of marketing and communications, and most recently studying and working as an ADD/ADHD Coach. In 2010, after being diagnosed with ADHD at age 43, I began a process of self-exploration and renewal that led to what I now refer to as “Brett 2.0”. Realizing as a result of my late diagnosis that I had spent most of my life fighting the person I truly was inside, I decided that the key to re-writing my story would lie in the 3 Pillars I’ve come to call the “ADHD Trinity™” which consisted of identifying ways to better UNDERSTAND, ACCEPT and EMBRACE my ADHD. The Trinity™ led me to take a “Strength-Based” approach to my ADHD by finding ways to identify, maximize and capitalize on the natural talents and strengths it provided, while challenging the limiting beliefs and stories that had been part of my life for so long. Following a four-year period of self-discovery and re-evaluation that inspired a departure from my marketing career of nearly 20 years, I am now following my passion to assist other adults with ADHD who have a desire to re-write the story of their lives. As a Certified ADHD Coach, my personal insight, ADHD-specific coach training and experience enable me to provide my clients with the safe, non-judgmental space as well as the empathy and freedom required to fully explore and realize their natural talents and strengths. I also use insightful questioning and feedback to challenge existing assumptions and beliefs so that they may find within themselves new ways of focusing on desired action plans to help them move beyond the feeling of being stuck that so often accompanies ADD/ADHD.

About:

My name is Carol and I’m looking forward to meeting and finding out about you and what makes you tick. I want to know what you love and what you’re proud of - what’s fun for you and where you’re going. And most of all, I want to know how I can help you have the great life you are meant for! I have used professional coaching as a way to give people a renewed life for 17 years. In that time I have applied a spiritual and intuitive understanding to the stories they tell me. The healing this provides allows people to bring peace and understanding to a chaotic world. It gives them a renewed confidence in themselves as well as a revitalized direction for their life. The changes my wonderful clients want to make now become second nature to them because they are confident and highly motivated. After working for 36 years with people who have been labeled ADHD, I have found it to not be the case. People with this brain type have neither a deficit nor a disorder. As a result of my work with thousands of folks, I believe that this type of brain is a way of doing things that all Innovators have in common from Mozart to the CEOs of Jet Blue and Virgin America. All of my clients learn to understand and maximize their strengths and talents to make up for their different way of doing things. They learn to better use the resources and help around them as a support network for bringing to the world their considerable gifts and game changing contributions. Wishing everyone wellness and peace, Carol

About:

I am a psychologist, executive coach, life coach, and ADHD coach. I work with both individuals and groups. My consulting and coaching practice, Integrated Life Path Coaching is based in Northern Virginia and the Washington D.C. metro area. I also travel frequently to my client sites both within the US and internationally. I am a frequent speaker at professional organizations and conferences and have published numerous articles and books. One of my key strengths is integrating mindfulness practices into my coaching activities. I am a meditator of over 40 years and have developed simple yet effective approaches to bringing mindfulness practices into the lives of individuals of all ages who want to improve on their ability to remain focused on the task at hand and achieve their life goals. That's what I 'DO'. Who I 'AM' is someone with a passion for personal and interpersonal development - mine and yours. I believe in my deepest being that it is in relation to others that we find ourselves. If we are brave, courageous and aware we can use every moment of every day as an opportunity for personal growth and to improve the world we live in. This is the work i want to do with you and your organization. SOME INFORMATION ABOUT ADHD, ADD OR EXECUTIVE FUNCIONING LIMITATIONS ADD, ADHD and EFD are all labels for neurological weaknesses that affect the areas of the brain related to self-regulation of behavior and emotions. Approximately 15% of youths and 5% of adults are affected by limitations in executive functioning capabilities. Executive functioning limitations may arise at any time in life. They may be genetic in origin and arise in childhood or later. But they may also be the result of any number of occurrences such as physical trauma or medical conditions. Some individuals with executive functioning limitations, especially those who are gifted, may successfully navigate the early stages of their lives and only experience significant impairment later, in more unstructured and challenging aspects of their lives such as college and the work environment. The good news for individuals with executive functioning limitations is that these limitations can be improved upon, often significantly, through training the mind in methods that improve cognitive functioning as well as unlearning negative compensatory attitudes and behaviors. It is especially possible to learn techniques to compensate for executive functioning limitations. You can benefit from working with me if you experience any of these characteristics of ADHD, ADD or executive functioning limitations • Difficulty achieving goals even though you have the talent to do so • Difficulties with scheduling and planning • Weakness of short term memory including losing things and forgetting things • Interrupting others in conversation and difficulty following prolonged dialogues • Waiting until the last moment to start projects • Boredom, restlessness, and impatience • Risk taking and a desire for stimulation • Forgetting schedules, rushing and lateness • Multiple incomplete projects and activities • Impulsiveness and emotional frustration • Inability to pick up social cues and respond accordingly

About:

I help smart, creative people who want to overcome challenges, get organized, get things done and get more out of life. For the past fifteen years, I’ve coached individuals, facilitated groups and delivered inventive workshops on four continents. I’ve authored books about happiness, goal setting, planning, getting things done, making real personal change, making the most out of life, getting over regrets and disappointments, and overcoming perfectionism. I’ve developed countless tools, techniques, thinking activities, and fieldwork assignments to help people make real, effective improvements to their lives. If you’re like most people who seek me out, you’re dealing with one or more of these four situations: 1. You are at a crossroads, a major decision point, and/or are experiencing a major life change. Whether the changes you are experiencing are chosen or imposed, it’s natural to experience challenges, confusion, doubts and stress along the way. I can help you decide what you really want -- and don’t want -- and tailor a plan to suit your unique choices, preferences and circumstances. I have tools and techniques that will ensure your transition unfolds more smoothly, more easily and more efficiently. I can help you make the most of your next life chapter, whatever it is. 2. You are dissatisfied with your life, stuck, frustrated, and/or disappointed. You want something more -- or better -- or different -- although you might not know exactly what that is, let alone how to get it. If this sounds like you, rest assured that you *can* improve your life. Together, we can figure out what you really want -- and how to make it happen. We can create goals and plans tailored to your unique strengths, preferences and circumstances. We can keep you on track, motivated and overcome challenges along the way. Yes, you *can* get things done. Yes you *can* achieve your unique goals and dreams. Yes you *can* change your life and live a life you love. 3. You are a creative person encountering creative challenges. Maybe you're having difficulty getting started...or finding focus...or maintaining momentum...or finishing something. Whether you are a fledgling artist yearning to develop your creativity, a hobbyist juggling different passions or a professional artist seeking career direction, I can help. I've helped artists get organized, get focused and channel their creative energies effectively. I've coached people through particular projects like writing a book, getting an agent and planning a CD launch. I've helped creative people make major changes smoothly and to find effective ways to balance different life domains to create a life they love. Many of my creative clients are multi-talented people juggling too many projects and too many ideas. If that sounds like you, rest assured, I’ve developed many tools and techniques just for you. 4. You are a perfectionist. Are you picky? Or ‘hard on yourself’? Do you ‘have high standards’ or unspoken ‘rules’ that you abide by? Do you like things to be done ‘properly’? Do you sense a chronic feeling of things just note being ‘good enough’? If this sounds like you, you just might be a perfectionist -- and you know how stressful and unpleasant it can be. I’ve developed a suite of tools and techniques to counteract the underlying fears and false beliefs that foster perfectionistic behaviors. I’ve helped people overcome their control issues, reduce the stress and anxiety of striving for perfection, overcome their pessimism, and shift from chronic disappointment to contentment. What to Expect from a Single Coaching Session: * you will clarify what’s really going on in your life (hint: it might be something other than you think) * you will generate and review your options * you will decide what next steps are right for you to take at this time What to Expect from a Series of Ongoing Coaching Sessions: * you will figure out what you *really* want in life -- and what you really don’t want * you will achieve your goals faster, easier, and with less stress * you will identify and overcome whatever has been holding you back or interfering with your success * you will overcome obstacles you encounter more effectively, more efficiently and with less stress * you will do more of what you love and less of what you don’t * you will manage your time more effectively and efficiently * you will gain a deeper understanding of your core strengths and learn how to make the most of them * you will gain a better understanding of areas of life you could improve, and how to do so * you will achieve an improved work/life balance * you will experience quantum leaps in your personal insights, your personal growth and your personal development * you will improve your personal and professional relationships * you will enjoy your life more I look forward to working with you.

About:

Hi. I’m Matt. I’m a certified ADHD coach, certified life coach, professional organizer, father, husband, classically trained chef, part-time vegetable gardener, athlete, friend, business owner, and so much more. I also have ADHD, which is what brought me to my second career as a coach. I was diagnosed when I was 10 and had many advantages in dealing with my ADHD. Even so, life was hard. It took me years, decades really, to fully understand my ADHD and learn to effectively manage it. I can now proudly say that my ADHD doesn’t hold me back in any aspect of my life. Sure, things aren’t perfect, but I have an amazing life. As a coach I help my clients create the amazing lives they want and deserve. As kids, we never said, “I want to grow up to just get by.” We assume we are going to be happy and successful. But, for many of us, years of undiagnosed ADHD or undertreated ADHD can convince us that happy and successful aren’t possible. But, they are! If I can do it, you can too. And, I’d be honored to help you on that journey. People often ask me what a coach is. I struggled with how to answer that for years. Finally I realized that it doesn’t matter what a coach is. It only matters who I am and what I do. I take a behavioral approach to ADHD. My clients come to me when they want different results in their lives. They want to be more efficient and productive. They want to feel more in control, less impulsive, less stressed. They want to be more organized, to be on time for things, to feel prepared. Often they also want to parent better, have stronger and healthier relationships, make progress in their careers, make time for exercise, and better nutrition. Ultimately, we change our results by changing our behavior. Of course, that is easier said than done. Behaviors can be very difficult to change for a variety of reasons. But, the most important factor in changing our behavior is understanding the why. Why do we do what we do (or don’t do what we should do) so that we keep getting the same results—the very results that we don’t want? That’s where I come in. It is not always so easy to understand the why. I teach my clients about their ADHD and help them look at their behaviors though an ADHD lens. In my experience that is the key to understanding why we do what we do. Once we understand, we can start to change. The other way I can define myself, as a coach is in one word: practical. Of course I do use traditional coaching techniques by asking “powerful questions” and helping my clients to “develop new awareness.” But as ADHDers, we want practical solutions to our day-to-day struggles. I’ve spent 25+ years developing practical strategies for managing life, from writing papers, to getting the laundry done. From keeping organized, to remembering to do things, to getting places on time. Whatever you struggle with in your life, odds are I have a practical strategy to manage it that will really work and be easy to implement and sustain. And if I don’t, we’ll co-create one that works specifically for you! Ultimately, to live “the good life” as ADHDers, we need to do two things. We need to build our lives around what we are passionate about and good at. And, we need to minimize the things we struggle with by using adaptive compensation strategies. I can help you do both. With clients between 11 and 60 years old, I can honestly say that it is never too early or too late to make the change you want in your current life so that you can start living the amazing life you have always wanted and truly deserve.

About:

After a childhood that featured numerous academic and social problems, I was finally diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 19. I immediately began learning, formally and experientially, everything I could about ADHD. I was fortunate to find professionals willing to train me, and I continue with formal training even now, as research continues to uncover answers about ADHD that we haven’t had before. School, work, relationships, family, changing doctors, multiple medication and dosage changes, co-morbid conditions - these are only a few of the more common issues that having ADHD turns into adventures. I’ve been there, and have come out successfully on the other side, largely through awareness, strategic planning, self-advocacy, and building a support network. Although I specialize solely in ADHD (much in the way that I appreciate the knowledge and experience of every physician, if I need heart surgery, I go to a cardiologist, not a neurologist) I do also work with the non-ADHD family and even employers of people with ADHD...as much as ADHD affects the individual, it also affects those around him/her and there is almost never any support/information offered to them. Since ADHD affects every aspect of a person’s life, it can sometimes appear to be overwhelming; but it doesn’t have to be. There are so many joys to be found in having ADHD - you don’t want to miss them!

About:

I am not sure when I first heard the story of the clay covered statue of the Buddha in Thailand, but the image has become the core of how I see my clients in my coaching work. The story is told that in the 1930’s, a gold painted clay statue of the Buddha was warehoused when its temple home was to be destroyed during improvements to be done on the banks of the river nearby. Since the monks would not destroy a statue of the Buddha, they stored it instead. It remained in storage until it was placed in a new temple built 20 years later in the 1950’s. In the move to the new temple, the statue was dropped and it fell into the mud where upon further investigation they found many cracks in the statue. One monk, waking from a dream about the sacred statue, checked it out at night with a flashlight and was shocked to see something shining through the cracks. He woke the other monks and together they carefully removed the clay until they uncovered a solid gold statue of the Buddha underneath. It is believed that it was covered in clay by monks at an earlier time in history to protect it from the danger of being stolen by invaders of the area at that time. It is visited by many to this day and a shining example of the triumph of inner treasure. This story serves to remind me that we each have a center as precious as gold that has been covered by life’s clay, often for our own protection. When we feel safe, we can start removing these layers to experience the magnificence of who we really are. For me, coaching is an art that can ever so gently help remove the layers of clay that have formed over time so we can shine our light in the world for others to see. I know that you have a dream in your heart that is ready to be uncovered, but you may be living in quiet desperation, numbing to the pain of being less than the light you are meant to shine. I know the pain and I can tell you that it is never too late to uncover the truth of your being and find the purpose you would fulfill. I can help you rediscover the core of your being, the reason you are here. It is the calling of your soul for you to walk on this Earth and express what you were born to make manifest. You may have lost touch, you may have hidden it, or you may have just forgotten that it exists, but I can tell you with all honesty that you are here to share more of yourself with the world. You only need to wake up from your sleep and begin living your dream today. As a Certified Transpersonal Life Coach, I encourage you to discover the truth of your own being. My own transformational style in coaching is towards wholeness. I visualize us taking your box of sacred puzzle pieces and after lovingly accepting each one as necessary, putting them carefully together to become whole. It is not just about me listening to what you say but in also listening to the silence where the magic resides. I encourage you to envision a life you have only dreamed of living, not only what you want but why you want it and from that knowing, daring to discover how you will take action in the world to achieve your goals. It is a powerful way to live, not always easy, but always worthwhile. I specialize in helping you personally grow through a positive and solution-focused style of coaching. I ask transformational questions that create the space for you to go deeper into your own process. I also provide support and practical feedback to help you effectively address your personal life challenges. I integrate cutting-edge coaching techniques and helpful assignments to offer a highly-personalized program tailored to you. With compassion and understanding, I will work with you to help build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to achieving. I am also certified in an energy healing modality and meditative practice that is designed to bring balance to your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual body. This work has enabled me to be more intuitive and increased my awareness of my emphatic abilities. I think it enhances my coaching path and has served my own life in miraculous ways by adding a deep sense of joy to my work. For anyone following a spiritual path, meditation can help you have a deeper experience of your spiritual self. For this reason, I am committed to my own meditative practice and can also help you find the peace, love, and joy that await you in this experience plus the deep sense of connection and calmness that follows you through your day. My mission in life is to be an instrument of peace by creating a space of pure potential for others to become whole through my practice of Life Coaching and Energy Healing. I believe that we already contain everything we need to become an authentic expression of the Divine and it is both my sacred honor and my intention to be a guide and witness to this process in each person I serve. I believe in the persistence of the human spirit to seek out ways to make a connection with their Divine source in order to elevate their lives here on Earth. I value being a part of a profession dedicated to helping others self-actualize, fulfill their dreams, and work to raise the vibration of humanity. I value the healing power of nature and its ability to easily remind us of our connection to and place in a bigger Universe. I seek to create a space of unconditional love where others can connect to their source in order to heal, become whole, and continue to become greater expressions of peace and love. I have been committed to helping people find their unique expression throughout my career, first as a cosmetologist, helping others by making them feel more beautiful, then as a realtor in service to finding the perfect environment in which to live. It was when my family was grown that I rekindled my passion for psychology. I unexpectedly discovered a branch of psychology that I was unaware of at the time, transpersonal psychology. With a spiritual focus, it was exactly what I was seeking and the positive focus of coaching was more appealing, as I wanted to help others in the positive direction my life had taken with the help of a Life Coach. I have never regretted this decision and it has been both fulfilling and my source of joy. I look forward to serving you in finding fulfillment so that life continues to be a source of wonder and you walk as the light you were meant to shine.

I was raised by two parents who were cultural anthropologists so I spent much of my youth traveling the world. Overall, yes, it was fantastic. I saw much though...including violence, abuse and ugliness along with bountiful beauty, caring and happiness. From a young age, I knew I wanted to help others who were not where they wanted to be in their lives. I held a number of “helping” volunteer positions, even as young as junior high school. I had decided I was definitely going to become a clinical psychologist. I went to college at Brown University in Rhode Island where I received my BA in Psychology. Then...well, I kind of got off track and went into the business world. I even went so far as to get my MBA from UCLA and I became quite successful in the hospitality and real estate industries. Don’t worry...getting off track serves me well in my work today. After a while, I had an overdue talk with myself and realized I wasn’t happy. I decided to go after my true passion so I went back to school to obtain a MA and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. I developed a thriving private practice and was incredibly busy. I better confess here that I used to be a major Type A and a perfectionist (Type A+). Besides my private practice, I was also writing, doing public speaking, volunteering and trying to manage a home and a family. Well, too much was too much. I realized I was feeling a lot of stress but I didn’t have a chance to slow down...stress slammed the brakes on me. I was experiencing severe fatigue, chronic pain and losing all of my hair! I ended up in the hospital for a couple of months and the doctors had to call my family two times to say “good-bye” to me. Well, I persisted and came out with diagnoses including diabetes, lupus, fibromyalgia, my pancreas had been removed and there were a host of other conditions thrown in for good measure! Recovery was painfully slow. I was so depressed due to the pain and the feelings of having lost everything, including myself. You see, I wasn’t able to “do” and “perform” anymore. I gathered up my energy and started studying eastern, alternative and western healing techniques and developed a program I followed closely. I slowly but surely got better and better. People were coming up to me and saying, “You look so much better now”! Was that supposed to make me feel good? I learned a lot about patience and acceptance during that period and that most suffering could be eliminated. I also realized that how I chose to perceive stress had everything to do with how it affected me, for good or bad. I wrote my first book, “High on Stress” which discussed a concept I developed called “prostress”, basically positive stress. I’ve continued to learn and grow and now I have so much energy...but, I don’t squander it. I’ve learned how to get rid of depression, anxiety, chronic pain, hopelessness, stress and so many other negative conditions. My toolkit of techniques is expansive and with studying neuroscience for the last 10 years, I have so many scientifically based, proven techniques to help individuals make actual changes in the structure and functioning of their brains. You will definitely be able to get rid of your negative “stinking thinking” and replace it with rational, positive thinking. Focusing on positives causes the development of positive neural pathways in our brains. This feeds forward and makes us think, feel and act in positive manners. Without stress, the cortex is relieved and productivity, decision-making, memory, creativity and decision-making are maximized. You will be open to experiencing positivity, fulfillment, happiness and success! I can help you heal and thrive in most areas of your life, both business and personal. I’ve been doing this work which I love so much for a long time.Everybody who comes to see me has a unique story. I listen, I support, I ask questions to have you think in new ways, I will hold you accountable to making the changes you desire, and you will achieve what you want from your journey (even if you’re not clear on what you want when you first visit with me). Thank you for letting me share my story and discuss just a bit about how I work. We’ll have to talk more so we can each learn more about each other...but, I guarantee, I will be there as a guide and a support the entire time we’re working and you’re growing with an ease you won’t believe. My past clients are incredibly thrilled and pleased with their progress and I know you will be too!

About:

Hi, my name is Sylvia and I have transformed my life. I have gone from working ridiculously long hours, to working 3 days a week. I have overcome my fears of “being truly seen” by people, to standing up in rooms full of people and teaching self empowerment and self growth workshops all the time. I have also been humbled to coach some amazing people through some pretty confusing times. And I love every minute of it! I believe everyone can overcome their life lessons, challenges and stumbling blocks to grow, transform and to heal! I believe everything is energy, including humans. And as with all energy, we vibrate. Depending on what you are going through can impact on how your energy vibrates. You could be feeling light and free as a bird, full of love, joy and happiness or you could feel heavy, unable to get through the day, sad, lack purpose, lack clarity in your decisions and feel completely unmotivated. Or anywhere in between. How do you feel right now, and more importantly, how do you want to feel? I love working with people that are looking to tweak their lives, grow more as a person and want to exist at a higher vibrational frequency. Do any of these describe you? -You have a great partner but you don’t understand why someone as wonderful as they are would choose to be with you. -You have a great job and every tells you how great you are at it, but if only they knew what a fraud you are. -You are very successful at work but you have no partner, because let's face it, you don’t deserve to be in a relationship -You are in a job you really do not enjoy, but it’s not like you are capable of doing anything else -You are motivated, hard working, successful, but life is so stressful and you never have time for the things you enjoy -You have become so lost in being a responsible adult, you have no idea who you really are anymore... If yes, then I would love to work with you, to help you transform, grow and heal! A bit more about Sylvia: Sylvia began her career working on peoples physical bodies. Through massage, Bowen therapy, and reflexology, she began to notice a pattern of people feeling pain physically when they were experiencing an emotional or mental “pain”. She found whilst her treatments played a massive part in helping someone to heal, unless the person accepted their role of responsibility in the healing, then nothing would change. So began an exploration of the mind. Sylvia studied Life Coaching and Law of Attraction coaching through one of Australia’s leading experts in the field. Not only did it dramatically change her life, but it also showed her a new way of helping to heal her clients which she now does with great success.

About:

Hi There, I work with couples and individuals that are stuck and frustrated to discover and create the sex life they have always wanted. Are you in a sexless relationship? Do you and your partner want different things? Are you afraid to share something with your partner? Do you want a partner but can’t “find” the right one? Do you need to leave the past in the past to enjoy the present? As each and every one of us has a unique sexual identity, we too have different goals and those too may change throughout our lives. Having said that, I have put together a list of the most common benefits that past clients have reported, I invite you to take a moment to review them: - Understand where your beliefs about sex and relationships came from and powerfully chose whether or not you are going to continue following them - Develop a new sense of confidence in exploring new relationships and sexual territory - Enjoy sex and relationships without the stories, scandal and significance that we attach to it - Learn how to love and accept yourself for all you wonderful kinks, quirks and different turn ons and turn offs - Powerfully take responsibility for your future and clean up the mistakes you have made in your past - Create a sex life free from standards, ideals, norms and expectations - Redefine what great sex is - Have the type of relationship you want - Have sex when you want - Have more sex - Have more partners - Get out of your head so you can be present with your partner - Be able to have conversations with your partner you never thought possible - Be able to create a space where conversations can be had free of judgement and make-wrongs - Be able to clearly communicate your needs, wants and desires to your partner - Develop your listening skills to really hear and understand what your partner is saying - Understand how your past thoughts and beliefs about relationships and sex that prevent you from connecting with your partner - Free yourself from self limiting beliefs about your body, performance and what it is to be a man or a woman in a relationship If one or some of these results resonate with you. I would be happy to chat with you. Or if you have questions about me and the work that I do please do not hesitate to ask. Sexologist Dr. Stephen is a Board Certified Sexologist. He holds a Master of Public Health in Human Sexuality and a Doctorate of Human Sexuality. Stephen’s commitment is that all people live a sexually empowered existence free from unhealthy stigmas, standards, ideals and norms.

About:

Peijman is a leader and cutting edge visionary. He takes fearless inspired action that helps create a better world. I love working with people one on one! The work I do is all about living your life authentically with nothing holding you back. People talk to me when they want to make change in their lives. They want the truth. Most people in their lives don’t tell them the truth either because they don’t see it, or they feel uncomfortable talking about it. My clients want to see themselves in a deeper way than they have before. They want clarity on the best steps to take, and what they are actually meant to be doing. So, when we talk, it is all about absolute honesty! I love it. My clients come to me, because they know I won’t hold anything back. There is nothing quite like having a completely honest and authentic conversation with another person. Trust can really be felt, along with powerful connection and inspiration. I believe we are all unique and have a special gift to give to the world. It is an absolute honor for me to be able to witness that in my clients. Personal Development has been a near obsessive focus and passion in my life! In 2006 I had an awakening and spent 7 months meditating for 6 hours a day as part of a meditation peace team. Ever since then I have been studying and applying spiritual, therapeutic, astrological, and coaching techniques to myself and my clients at every opportunity I can. In my journey I have had to overcome many personal obstacles and this has given me an intuitive awareness of psychological blocks with the ability to really lean into someone’s energy and have the emphatic understanding that allows them to heal and move forward. I've studied coaching at one of the top schools: Coaches Training Institute. I've also studied with the world re-known astrologer Glenn Perry at his school the Academy of AstroPsychology. I’m a nonviolence workshop facilitator teaching conflict transformation, de-escalation, and nonviolence theory informed by the greats such as Gandhi and MLK. I’m a business entrepreneur, non-profit founder and have been a world traveling professional musician for over 15 years playing the hell out my drums. I've played on many big stages with prestigious musicians. My purpose in life is to interact with people on a deep but super fun and intense level in such a way that it re-jumbles their brain molecules and as a result they are more connected to the spirit within them. I like to say that I am the psychedelic fog that envelops and plugs you into connection with spirit.

Ever since I was very young, people often spontaneously came to me to tell me about some of the things that they were concerned about. Sometimes they did it just to vent, others, they were looking for solutions. This is what made me decide to dedicate my life to helping people find answers. I ́m a Certified Cognitive Behavioral Coach and have twenty-five years experience as a Psychology Professor and Researcher, Psychological Advisor and Trainer of Social and Psychological Skills both in private practice . My non-judgmental approach, enables the client the opportunity to discover themselves in a safe environment. Incorporating various modalities and techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Coaching, Humanistic and Positive Psychology, Relaxation, Hypnosis and Imagery. My goal is to help you find your own answers. Lifestyle improvement is a holistic concept, in order for change and growth to occur, the entire person needs to be addressed from a physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual aspect. Problems have to be analyzed and understood as intrapersonal-interpersonal inadequate transactions, a combinations of emotions, cognitions and behaviors in interaction with others in a context. Through the sessions, the clients learn to modify the dysfunctional feedback loops they experience within themselves, with others and the world to become happier. My role is to help you to find your own answers. I address your entire person and each of these four storyline: physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual. Lifestyle improvement is a holistic concept. I offer different coaching modalities (challenging irrational thoughts, assertiveness training, relaxation, role-playing, guided imagery) to allow the client to reach his/her full potential.

About:

It’s an honor to be here and to have the opportunity to connect with you. I believe that everyone has his own unique fingerprint on this world, and I am here to help you uncover yours. Each individual has the right to expand their freedom, decide who to be, what to do, and how to live. Life is no dress rehearsal. I have been through hardship and learned that I have a spirit that cannot be broken. Now I want to offer you that chance, because it’s possible, and we all deserve to live a grand juicy life. I coach clients to reach their peak performance by moving them from just getting by–to flying high. Whether it’s finding and flourishing in that romantic relationship or starting that business you may have dreamed of – I can help you connect the dots to getting there. Life is all made up, so we may as well write our own stories. I invite you to join with me and form a powerful team. Together, we will design the vision for your life’s goals and purpose, and hold that vision for you to step into and own. The truth is, you may as well be yourself, because everyone else is taken! We often let self-limiting thoughts get in our way of this powerful creation called “our life”. My passion is catalyzing change. Change is hard and any small change requires substantial effort. Making major transformation demands a change agent. Successful athletes, entrepreneurs, executives, people going through divorce have coaches. The ones who do are the ones who thrive. I have been catalyzing change in others since preschool. I am committed to serving you–to closing the gap from where you are to where you want to be. If you don’t know where that is — I’m here to help you uncover it. I can help you identify your strengths and talents; gifts which you may not realize you possess. Your self-esteem, confidence, and well-being are my mission. To find a complete summary of my work, please refer to my new book - - Counseling and Personal Development: The Health Professional as Facilitator. The book is in contract with Cengage Learning and due to print in the fall of 2015. In my passion to catalyze change, I have spent a good deal of my life as a professional speech-language pathologist. I am a tenured and award-winning professor, on the graduate level, and train my graduate students in the art and science of speech assessment, therapy, and counseling. In addition, I have published a book on diagnostic assessment in the profession (A Guide to Clinical Assessment and Professional Report Writing in Speech-Language Pathology). My ideal client are teens or adults who stutter, clutter (speak unclearly at a rapid speed), mispronounce specific sounds (such as a lisp), have hoarse voices and difficulty with loudness, and struggle with a foreign accent. Ever since I was a child, it was my dream to help people communicate easier. My work, which may be a blend of speech therapy and coaching, has made my dream a reality. This is your NOW, and the time that I may help you develop your own unique voice and express your thoughts and ideas with confidence.

About:

In addition to being a Certified Life & Career Coach, Coach Cinda is also a classically trained actress, photographer, human rights activist, and writer. Coach Cinda is a graduate of Tufts University, the National Shakespeare Conservatory, the Life Purpose Institute. She is Co-Founder/Co-Artistic Director of the Two Spoons Theatre Company, a regular playwright/actress at the Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Valdez, Alaska and human rights volunteer with Amnesty International Group 9/280 in New York City. With all her many interests, Life Coaching is her PASSIONS. As a person, Coach Cinda would describe herself as someone who often finds herself grasping for the right words to describe herself. She is constantly honing her own communication skills. She is definitely a work in progress and the tools that she has integrated into her Life Coaching and Reiki Healing practice and into her own life have made all the difference. One of the many benefits Coach Cinda has taken from her 25 years as an actress, is the ability to listen, observe and "be in the moment". These skills are essential to any actor, of course, and with her coaching practice, Coach Cinda now incorporates all she has learned into helping her clients improve every aspect of their lives by becoming expert communicators. While she is definitely changing and growing every single day, a few personal traits Cinda has that she doesn't expect to change much are a rocking sense of humor, an independent spirit, a powerful curiosity about the world, a hatred of meanness in any form, and gratitude, gratitude and more gratitude that she had the unbelievable good fortune of being born onto this rock. Cinda also loves black olives, any kind of pie, Sinclair Lewis' "Babbit", and Marge Simpson, but she will save that for her personal ad. Cinda has a ton of fun in whatever project she is involved with and a very strong work ethic. She places a very high priority on kindness, justice and honesty (all three come up often in conversations about communication as you can imagine). In addition to her coaching practice, Coach Cinda's other joy in life is going to endless rock, blues and folk concerts -- in the past year and a half: Ozzy Osbourne, Greg Alexander, Joe Walsh, Martin Sexton, Patti Griffin, Dave Matthews, Jeff Beck, Blue Oyster Cult, Mose Allison, John Hiatt, Kathy Mattea, Black Crowes, Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule, Shawn Colvin/Buddy Miller/Emmy Lou Harris, and on and on and on. No two ways about it, though... Cinda's Life Purpose: Life Coaching and art. All of these things bring her JOY (which is way more fun than mere happiness by the way.) In Cinda's life she has experienced black holes, supernovas and everything in between and it is these passions that have pulled her from the edge every time. Each new adventure allows her another opportunity to develop her focus, stay grounded, dig deep and bring out the emotional and spiritual sides of the infinite possibilities inside her. Cinda's goal with each client is to help you find the tools inside that will lead you down the path you are meant to follow. Life has been described as a "wheel". Coach Cinda believes that Communication is at the Center Of It All. When communication between people is compassionate, clear, courageous, calm, cohesive and creative (and people truly LISTEN to each other) all of the spokes on the wheel are able to turn smoothly and easily - family, work, relationships, health, friends, spiritual life....all the spokes of life. Coach Cinda loves to smile when it is called for (which in her life is fortunately often), but the smile is only a small part of the story. Whatever conversations you would like to have about your own relationships and your own life path, Coach Cinda is up to the task. It would be Coach Cinda's privilege to walk beside you on your life’s journey and help you communicate to all the world the best you in you.

About:

I am a certified Life Optimization Coach and author of several books. Over the past 30 years I have worked with Fortune 500 companies, owned several businesses and coached people in many walks of life. My passion is helping others realize that they have the ability to optimize their life and live the life of their dreams, regardless of their current situation. What is Life Optimization? Many people are under the misconception that life optimization is an ending point, when in fact it’s a continual process to live optimally in every aspect of your life. It’s a journey not a destination! Another common misconception is that an optimized life is about money and achieving status. While wealth is part of an optimized life, it’s only one of seven realms. The goal is to optimize all seven areas of your life. Life optimization does not equal perfection. I make mistakes every day and strive to learn from them. Mistakes are an important part of life optimization, as we grow and learn valuable lessons from them. So don’t think you have to be perfect to optimize your life! No two optimized lives look the same, what an optimized life looks like is extremely personal and ever evolving. Only you can determine what it will take to optimize your life. Quite simply its being the best you can be and having everything you desire in all facets of your life. You only have one life and a limited amount of time so make the most of it! My Life Optimization coaching practice is based on 7 realms: • Personal Development • Spiritual Development • Health • Wealth • Career • Relationships • Happiness It’s the circle of life optimization, because like a circle, life optimization is continuous and unending. You must strive to live optimally in all aspects of your life. Life optimization is not about age or gender or race or nationality; it’s about gaining the knowledge necessary to live your dreams, be all you can be and have all that you desire. And, it’s the same process for everyone. Life optimization is not easy, or else everyone would be living their dreams lives. It takes effort, you have to take responsibility for where you are in your life and you must eliminate excuses. It takes a new way of thinking! People seeking life optimization often have thoughts like: “I’m capable of doing more with my life” “I’m not where I envisioned myself at this point in my life” “I’m not living up to my full potential” “I want more out of life” “This is not my ideal life” “I want to make a difference with my life” “I want to build a legacy for my family” Don’t give up and settle for a life that is less than you desire. Too many people do that and go to their graves unhappy, unfulfilled and un-optimized. Let go of the past, embrace the present and intentionally design your future!You deserve to have all that you want in life, and you already have the ability to make it happen. It’s time to wake up and discover your life purpose and begin living it, as this is only way you can truly be fulfilled and optimize your life!

About:

- Do you dream of waking up every morning excited about your day? - Do you dream of a fulfilling life but don’t quite know what that looks like? - Do you dream of living your life on your terms? - Do you dream of having enough money to support your life? I too wrestled with the disconnect between my dreams and my life, dragging myself to a job where I felt undervalued, underwhelmed and underpaid and through a life that was uninspired. My Coaching Program was created with you in mind. Together, we identify areas of self-sabotage and debunk fears that hold you hostage to an unfulfilling existence. Whether it’s coaching a college student who is transitioning to the working world, a single-again man or woman who is rebuilding after a divorce, a dream-preneur who wishes to accelerate their progress or a citizen of life who simply wants something more, I coach from the inside out. Life and coaching have taught me that the satisfaction from reaching your goal is short-lived if it’s at the expense of what truly brings you joy. I am a graduate from UNC-Greensboro where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in 1982, continuing my education at Wake Tech where I received an Associates Degree in Human Services Technology, specializing in Substance Abuse Counseling and later, a coaching certification with honors from the Coaching Academy of North America. Although I am proud of these accomplishments, what I bring to the coaching profession of most significance is a tested program and satisfied clients.

Almost all people in their course of life are faced with numerous difficulties. ​Particularly at times of crisis, people may find themselves feeling depressed, lacking motivation and confidence to choose the right life-choices for them. Do you feel unsure where to go with your life? Does your life seem pointless? Are your personal issues threatening your family life and bliss? Does it feel like your close relationships are stuck going through patterns of hurtful behaviours? Then, Systemic Psychotherapy can help.​ I have worked as Systemic Psychotherapist in child, adolescent and adult mental health services for over 14 years in Greece, UK and Switzerland. Therefore, I also have first-hand experience in dealing with the challenges of settling in a new country and culture! My therapeutic orientation is flexible and collaborative stemming from narrative, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural and culture-sensitive therapy. It is important to always tailor my approach and treatment to what is in the best interest of my client. As a Systemic Psychotherapist, I believe that deep in their hearts people often know what might help them and are naturally-equipped with prosperous resources. However, life challenges and impasses make it impossible for people to access these. Having this as a core belief, I help my clients to find ways to encourage that inner wisdom to emerge! In other words, my aim is to help them change their life stories in such ways that they use their troubling thoughts, acute emotions and negatively intense experiences as the key to a greater self-awareness and a more meaningful life. If you feel ready to “live the life you love and to love the life you live”, you could contact me and I would be glad to help you.

I am a UK based Life and Business Coach. I work with clients who are looking to discover their power, purpose and agency in creating the life or work that they long for or who are undergoing a period of transition. Clients have reported improvements and dramatic shifts in their work, finances, relationships and sense of wellbeing having received coaching with me. I help you to gain insights so that you can fully own and make use of inner resources that are already available to you, but which you may have been ignoring. I support you in creating a clear picture of where you want to get to in your life or work. Then we look at the obstacles that are holding you back and devise strategies to move past those obstacles. I also help you to create an action plan and a system of accountability to make sure you take the steps that are necessary for your success. I have a reliable, empathic and solid presence (even though we are working together at a distance.) And I coach with the conviction that every situation is workable no matter how tough it may seem. Previous to becoming a coach I spent 9 years training in traditional buddhist meditation in a monastic community in central France. I now give non-religious Mindfulness sessions to businesses and individuals, working in corporate environments and with entrepreneurs. This training means I am adept in helping with stress related issues and enabling clients to discover purpose and meaning in their lives.

Whether you want to be financial stable, have control of your time, the right career or just want some clarity about what is holding you back from the life you want, we will get the answers! My clients are given a plan, organization, consistent accountability and encouragement. We shift from limiting beliefs to focusing on taking action and results.

My goal as a coach is to work closely with you so that you can make adjustments in the way you think and act that will result in you having a plan so you can live the life you want. I believe you can have it all and you can do it all with the proper coaching and mindset. How do I do this? I ask you clear questions so you can see what has been stopping you from reaching your goals. I then help you put together a plan to specifically address those challenges and guide you as you take action on your goals boldly and with confidence that you are on the right path. YOU WILL LEARN TO TAKE ACTION AND SEE RESULTS! Just like any car that isn't working you take it to a mechanic to be diagnosed to see what the issue is. I have the same approach and offer an introductory session so that we can discuss what is not working and begin developing a plan and strategy that will solve the problem you are facing. If we decide to work together, we can begin moving forward with improving the priorities in your life. If we are not a good fit, then I will recommend you to who I know that can definitely help. Either way you are pointed in the right direction and closer to your goals. Here are what my clients are saying about coaching with me Michelle assisted me in making the right decisions for each of my particular situations. She opened my eyes, gave me the courage to get out of my comfort zone, caringly aided in analyzing my financial options, & armed me with financial tools to budget with. Now, I'm moving to a larger house, paid off $40,000 in credit cards, have 0 credit card debt, & have 4 separate sources of income (apart from my regular W-2). Thank you Michelle, you will always be my shining star." Therese B. | Engineer | Los Angeles, CA My husband and I were in a financial rut. We knew we wanted to curb our spending and set goals to pay down debt and save for the future, but we didn’t know how, and every time we tried to make forward progress we would just end up in a fight. Having the outside help Michelle offered us was just what we needed. After our first session we had a much better idea of where our money was going (something I never felt we had a handle on before) and were able to easily set a budget and make a plan for paying off debt. It’s now been two months since our first meeting, and we’ve paid off three credit cards! Even better than that, we have not gotten in a single disagreement about money since we set-up our budget. That alone was worth the price of the session! It feels so good to be on the right track financially. I wish we had met with her a long time ago. Ginny Jones | Singer Songwriter | Los Angeles, CA I love Michelle Tascoe! She is so gifted and talented! "This is my second time coaching with Michelle and I have to say I have seen SO MUCH personal growth in my own life. I am changing my mindsets about who I am and what I can achieve in life. Michelle's coaching has caused my to open my eyes to the truth of what's in front of me. I'm losing more weight, getting more money in my bank account, working on becoming debt free. I'm also exploring new options in dating. I am one happy girl. Thank you Michelle for EVERYTHING! " Michelle Ballowe | Hospital Management | Sonora, CA Something was just missing in my life. Michelle worked around my stubbornness. She's incredibly intuitive herself. My money and life are more organized. I started just doing financial coaching, and ended up using her for life and financial coaching, because she's just so good y'all. She's compassionate and cuts straight to what you need. She delivers her guidance with tough love when needed and compassion and humor always. Megan Lane | Intuitive Coach | Los Angeles, CA I probably should have hired Michelle ten years ago, but it took the loss of my job and not getting a paycheck every two weeks (to spend every penny of) to finally make the decision. I had very little sense of where my money was going and zero experience in creating a budget. Michelle was amazing. She walked me through the steps I needed to get things lined up and into one place that was manageable and workable. I feel so much more in control of my finances than I ever have, and ready to take the next steps towards prioritizing for the future, which feels a thousand times better than a new pair of shoes. She is exceptionally easy to work with, flexible, and understanding. I'd recommend her services to anyone looking to get a better handle on their past, present, and future spending. It was eye opening for me to see that I spent a lot of money on habits weighing me down, instead of moving me forward. Hiring Michelle was definitely money well spent! Melissa Reale | Independent Contractor | Los Angeles, CA That application alone has helped me tremendously! I check it every morning and allocate each transaction to a set budget. It's really fun. Plus I'm on track to have a record month, so I have set a goal to save a particular amount of cash. Huzefa Kapadia | Owner at Scalar Learning | Los Angeles, CA I started being coached by Michelle Tascoe Coaching about three months ago and have experienced a noticeable financial lifestyle change. Before, I felt unorganized and stressed. Now I feel relaxed and efficient when it comes to my financials and my income has increased since our coaching as well (I think because her coaching got me more focused on exact numbers and small details that make a difference). What I really like about our weekly coaching sessions is that Michelle is kind and fun to work with, she truly cares about making a difference in your life. She notices when you are in a good mood or when you need lift in your spirit during the financial coaching session, you can tell that it is important to her that you enjoy learning and improving. I have already referred her services to a few of my closest family and friends and they have reported raving reviews. Can not imagine working with anyone else.

About:

My coaching is driven out of my passion and purpose of empowering others in achieving their goals and dreams and to assist them in leading their life at the highest level, on their terms. Maybe for you that is a better business, or a better relationship, improved financial situation or possibly a better body. Maybe it is simply trying to figure out your next move. Whatever it is, at the end of the day it is about getting you excited about the possibilities, removing the roadblocks and allowing you to create the outcome you truly desire. I have taken the insights and lessons from life and used them to empower and propel me forward, not to hold me back. I have also had the opportunity to train and learn within one of the most preeminent Australian coaching organisations which have given me incredible education, insight and understanding into why people do what they do as well as the psychology in behind that. I have coached individuals from many backgrounds ranging from people simply wanting to make positive change in their lives to Entrepreneurs striving to build enterprises to benefit the world. This has allowed me to create a powerful combination of experience, processes, knowledge and strategies that I bring to my clients. I have had my own coaching journey which has led to many successes in my life. I continue to live what I coach on a daily basis and I bring that authenticity and congruency and a genuine playful cheekiness to my practice. My goal is to launch you out of simply hoping that your life, business, finances, relationships, body, etc. will improve and have you move into action where you now expect to see results and success. My mission is to empower you with the clarity, strategy and mindset to live with the passion and create the vision for your life today and tomorrow for yourself and those you choose to surround yourself with.

About:

I am Anadel, a counselor and narrative therapist. I chose Mental Health as a career due to my own struggles with addiction. The road of sobriety had many challenges and having overcome most of them, I wanted to help others. I chose to add Sex Coaching to add my practice because the need is tremendous. Sex, sexuality and intimacy were areas that most people sought help for and which were sorely underrepresented in my Mental Health Training and Education. My own sex and intimacy concerns led me to find my own path to a healthy sexual ideal for myself. It was a tough journey. It was hard to find a therapist who dealt with normalizing sexual issues. Sexuality was ignored as a subject to embrace and improve upon if one wanted. I finally found fulfillment doing my own work and research. Liberation from the bondage of confusion, shame and guilt about sex and sexuality was the result. I discovered just how normal I was and that I could live by my own values. I was able to take full ownership of my Powerful Sexual Energy. Having found a healthy attitude towards sex, my whole life changed, and I had a sense of well-being. I am now able to give back what I gained. I help clients to rediscover their intuition. I collaborate with clients as they re-author the negative stories their lives have been stuck in into new and positive stories to live by. My beliefs are those of non-shaming, non-judging, and non-pathologizing any person or concern that people may present to me. I call my technique FLOW © (Fulfillment, Liberation, Ownership, Well-Being). I would love to share it with everyone!

About:

I started to professionally work as a professional life coach in 1990, and as a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist in 1996 at my private practice after having started my personal journey through studies in traditional, transpersonal and integral approaches of psychology, philosophy and education. I have professional training & degrees in psychology and hypnotherapy -BS-MS-MA-, have worked as a certified psychotherapist since 1993 in South America, as a mental health therapist in California, Arizona and Nevada since December of 2001, and as a psychotherapist and coach in Europe since 2010. My most recent degree is a MA in Integral-Transpersonal-Counseling psychology. Extensive experience in the psychology, counseling, case management and education fields, lecturing on several topics around philosophy, psychology, education and self-development, and providing clinical and counseling support at different inpatient and outpatient clinics, schools, NGOs and businesses, have allowed me to improve and enrich my experience and competence as a person and as a professional, being culturally sensitive and integral in my approach. I have worked in the United States, Europe and South America with very culturally diverse and multilingual populations, face to face, by phone and online. We use to have hard times whenever we face difficulties that challenge our ego. Most of the time, we tend to avoid facing these challenges or we do deal with them in destructive ways, mainly because of not having learned more assertive and functional ways to take care of ourselves, relationships and circumstances in life. My approach is focused on promoting your insight about why you think, feel and react the way you do, to support you to take advantage of your own skills and potential and to guide you on working on yourself, your emotional needs, wounds and fears, those that are not allowing you to mindfully and gently take good care of yourself, life and your relationships with others. I do take into account exploring and working on the issues affecting your mood and functioning, and facilitating the learning of personal tools that would allow you to ventilate, understand and process feelings, as well as to promote concrete positive changes in your life. You could expect to receive sincere, ethical, assertive and emphatic support even in those moments when denial and avoidance are your worst enemies. I will challenge your ego and promote the awakening and nurturing of your real self. If you are serious about you self-development or your need to cope with and learn from depression, anxiety or any stressor from your daily life, I would like to offer my support to work with you on this challenging and fulfilling endeavor.

Hello, my name is Michael and I have a real passion for helping others create their best lives and best results for themselves. My coaching approach involves a very client centered style of therapy and direction. I use a combination of techniques such as counseling, hypnotherapy, NLP techniqes, EFT among other styles, in order to help you get the results you are searching for. Through my private practice in Sydney Australia, I have helped hundreds of people breakthrough and assist them in creating new, better and more empowering outcomes in their lives. Change doesen’t have to be difficult. When we begin to free ourselves from negative patterns and thinking, our subconscious minds begin to work for us, instead of against us. Then, change is not only possible, it’s inevitable. I am very happy to work with you and help you create the changes that you want, so you can lead a more fulfilled and empowered life. Different strategies give us different perspectives and with that new perspective comes new oppurtunities. You will never see those new oppurtunities with the old mindset. A new mindset means a whole new range of possibilities.Then, no more focusing on the problem, you’re now focused on new oppurtunities. What you can expect from me several things. 1) GUIDANCE- I will help, guide and direct you from where you are, to where you want to be. 2) DIRECTION- I will advise and direct you in moving towards your goal. 3) ASSISTANCE- I will give you every assistance possible. 4) PROFESSIONALISM- I will be completely professional in our dealings and will the best job I possibly can. 5) HELP- Really what this is all about is me helping you move forward. A coach can guide and direct a team, bit he can’t do it for them. The results come from collaboration and following the game plan. I hope this has assisted you in some way and I look forward to working with you. Thank You Michael

About:

My name is Derval and I am Irish born and bred and grew up in Ireland’s capital, Dublin. After obtaining a Degree in Business & Marketing, I spent nearly 10 years working in various multi-national organisations in Human Resources. While I really enjoyed my career, I always felt that there was something more for me to do, for me to learn and to experience. I started to explore this and came across Coaching and in 2008 I qualified as a Life Coach & NLP Practitioner. From that point on my life took a whole new direction. I left my career in Human Resources, moved from my home country to Paris, France and set up my Coaching & Training business. There were times when is was scary, as I ventured into unknown territory and had to deal with fears, insecurities and obstacles that came in front of me. But I dealt with it and came out the other end a better and stronger person and have not looked back since. I took the plunge and am now living a much more purposeful, meaningful and fulfilling life for me. Having gone through the coaching experience and purposeful life changes myself, I know what it can be like for my clients and I bring this understanding and experience to my work as a coach. In the Life Coaching that I do, it is about assisting people to make positive and lasting changes in their life (in all / any areas of their lives, both personally & professionally) so that they can live a better, happier and more fulfilling life. I encourage people to live their life on purpose & not by accident, to create their own path in life; to think about what really matters most to them and to move beyond fears and insecurities and societal conditioning and dare to do something different, something that deep down they know would make them happier. As a Coach, I support, encourage, listen, question and motivate. I am an objective & non-judgmental sounding board. I provide a safe creative environment for you to discover and explore. I walk with you during your change and I am your cheerleader on the sideline willing you on to the better things you want. My approach to coaching is about the “What” & the “How”. We start with the “what”. In order to get what you want, you need to know what you want. Then when you know what you want we work on “how” to get it. We will identify and clarify goals and objectives, uncover and work through obstacles and barriers to achieving those goals and devise realistic and effective action plans, ensuring goal achievement. So far I have worked with over 20 different nationalities. Here are some examples of the different reasons people come to me for coaching: - Career: Change of career; improve current job experience, interview preparation. - Feeling stuck or at a cross roads in life; feeling or knowing that something needs to change but not quite sure what or how to get started. - Knowing what changes are needed but looking for some guidance, structure, motivation and clarity to get started and to see it through. - Moving to or living in a foreign country and trying to find their feet and learn how to adjust and integrate in the new and unfamiliar environment. - Looking to make a big life decision and needing some objectivity and clarity. - Looking for more structure and balance in day to day living. If you are ready to make some changes in your life, I am here to assist that change where it matters most to you!

My personal MISSION and what drives me is to help thousands and thousands of women and men (like you) locally and INTERNATIONALLY to heal themselves from trauma, abuse, difficult relationships and situations, anxiety, depression, health problems and much more. My calling is to help EVERY SINGLE client that seeks my help to be stress-free and authentic. Can you imagine loving yourself unconditionally, having peace of mind, joy, as well as living the life of freedom and abundance that you have always dreamed about? (Are YOU ready?) My holistic and integrative approach will give you the tools that you need to live the life that you have always desired. My unique blend of Eastern and Western practices sets me aside from most traditional counselors and coaches. I studied and I practice several healing modalities including hypnosis/guided meditation, Emotional Freedom Technique ("tapping technique" - EFT), and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Research considers EFT to be one of the most effective approaches in treating anxiety and PTSD. Why I am so confident that I can help YOU? I've always been interested in human relationships and how people heal from trauma and abuse. I've been helping people over 20 years as a teacher, director of educational programs, translator, counselor, professional life coach, published author, spiritual counselor, and a healer. I obtained my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from prestigious University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL, and I graduated with Honors in 2003. I have extensive background working with families and at-risk children and adolescents, even though now I primarily work with couples and adults. I have more than 15 years of experience as a counselor in the mental health field having worked with many prominent agencies in Miami, Broward and Palm Beach. I also acquired extensive training as a Professional Life Coach at the Institute of Life Coach Training founded by Dr. Patrick Williams. This training is invaluable as it is specifically tailored to psychotherapists. As a result of this training, I am now better equipped to assist both my therapy and coaching clients. Furthermore, I was trained in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) by a prominent Master Trainer in NLP and Hypnosis, Dr.Yvonne Oswald. Instead of spending years in therapy, my clients receive immediate and repeatedly positive results and are able to change their beliefs and behaviors.

About:

I am Hally – the behavioural change expert, a literal life coach, in creating change, creating options, internal healing and a happy, successful and fulfilling life to any person willing to take one step forward. With a background in finance, training, human resources and operations; eight years ago I started my journey as a reputable Life Coach launching Creative Balance. As the business evolved so did I. After attaining a multitude of additional qualifications I created three divisions (Creative Balance Therapy, Creative Balance Healing and Spiritually Sexually You) specializing in different, prevalent areas. I have spent the last few years focused on not only helping my clients overcome the challenges of life, succeed in business and enjoy fulfilling relationships, I have found ways to reduce the affects of depression, anxiety, overcome long term trauma, remove negative emotional patterns and how to gain life tools to assist not only right now, rather how to use this for the rest of their lives. I focus on treating the person, not just what is going on because this is simply the symptom or result of something much deeper and more important. It is for this reason that I have an extremely high success rate with my clients and have become world renowned for my work in each of my specialized areas. I was noted as the Top Business Coach, the Top Life Coach in Australia, nominated for Telstra Business Womens' Awards and noted as a Master in Spiritualism globally. I have been featured in a numerous publications world wide, interviewed by Health Professional Radio, interviewed by the UK Paranormal Radio and many others. I am also the author of seven books and countless articles for such publications as The Social Conscience, Ultimate You Magazine, orn Organised Magazine, Geelong Blabbertiser and more. I stand by my work with complete passion, dedication and integrity. My journey itself was one with times of extreme difficulty however, I was able to come out of this; I did not give up; I found a way to move forward. There is always a choice, there are always options to something better. I guide, I facilitate, I support with not only subject matter expertise but from real, hard life lessons. Most of all, I care about each and every one of my clients. From the first one I had when I first started to the one I had ten minutes ago; I honor this privilege of helping each person move into an emotional and mental place that empowers, enables and motivates them to be themselves. In a world filled with Life Coaches, to stand out it takes one thing – to be me: as a leader in the industry with a worldwide presence, being the best only comes from delivering the best over and over again.
