Your life can change radically

in just twelve weeks of coaching if you are willing to seriously invest yourself in the process.

Check out this feedback from a recent client. 

I was really surprised by the changes we were able to make after only 12 weeks of coaching. The stressors in my life haven’t changed, but my responses have. I’ve learned how to treat myself with more compassion and curiosity instead of judgment and hate. Neil, more than the many tools, I’m most thankful for the different mindset you taught me


My observations about myself:

  • More intentional
  • Less judgmental of myself
  • More observant of my results and curious about causes

My wife’s observations about me:

  • Less angry, less blaming others
  • More patience
  • Where previous stress would have resulted in” numbing” (video games, drinking, watching TV), I now reflect and think about what can be accepted and what can be done.
  • Consumption of “numb-ers” is down
  • Putting the hard work into working through the stressors to create healthier lifestyle change.
  • Fewer panic attacks, not less stress, but better reactions to stress
  • Able to appreciate my strengths
  • Able to celebrate my wins
