Whole Life Coaching for Personal Growth & Self Mastery
A Heart-Centered & Values-Based Approach to Help You Flourish
As a professionally trained & certified life coach (Richmond Hill, Vaughan & Toronto locations as well as by phone & video), and someone who deeply cares about helping people flourish and create fulfilling lives, I work 1-on-1 with people who are ready for a significant change in their lives. People who care about and seek one or more of the following:
- To improve the quality of their lives in meaningful ways,
- To have a stronger sense of life purpose and direction,
- To be more authentic & honor who they really are,
- To reduce stress & take back control of their lives (inner & outer),
- To have more resilience, confidence & strength of will,
- To have more balance among their many priorities,
- To improve their relationships with others & themselves or
get into a meaningful relationship,
- To have a stronger, closer, richer family life,
- To discover & overcome whatever is holding them back
from being, doing, feeling or having all that they truly desire and deserve.
“You enter the forest at the darkest point, where there is no path. Where there is a way or a path, it is someone else’s path. You are not on your own path. If you follow someone else’s way, you are not going to realize your potential.”
~ Joseph Campbell
Having a life coach is like having a partner completely dedicated to helping you improve your life, grow, develop your character and strengths, and cut through the fear, resistance and obstacles to your highest vision. It’s my job to encourage you and help you realize just how awesome you really are and to help you get out of your own way, so you can build a life you’re proud of!
As a life coach, I believe that every person is completely unique: who they are, what they want, what they value, and what challenges or obstacles stand in their way. Because of this, and because a heart centered & values-based coaching approach can help so many people in so many different situations, it’s a difficult task to pinpoint exactly what you will get from life coaching on this one page.
What I’d like you to consider and focus on as you read this page is the reason that prompted you to find a life coach today. There may be some situations below that apply to you and others that don’t. Hold on to the ones that mean something to you and know up front, that your coaching journey will be completely personalized for you and aims to help you define, clarify and achieve meaningful changes in your life over a relatively short period of time (rather than going it alone).
Below are a variety of situations or reasons why people come to life coaching and what they get out of it.

Your Personal Growth Coaching Path Should Be Unique
Whatever you wish to focus on is completely up to you. You can start off wanting to handle a major crisis, challenge or dilemma in your life and once you are feeling better, we can move on to other areas of your life that matter. Or, we can start off with something less challenging and work up to the bigger changes in life as you gain more trust in me, in coaching and most importantly, in yourself.
Except for a different selection of exercises, models and tools, the coaching process is fairly similar for everyone, because it’s always customized and personalized for you, as the process unfolds.
Even though at the outset, we start off with a the focus, goal or outcome that brought you to coaching, at any time, in any session, you can bring any topic, issue, challenge, idea or event you want to work on together – to get clear – get a new perspective – to have a sounding board and to help you make a values-based choice and accountable commitment about how you are going to move forward.
I will help you gain the clarity and confidence to make your own intentional, values-based choices and once you do, you honor yourself with committed action. You learn to become more accountable to yourself – to take all the awareness and insights you have gained and to do something meaningful about it.
The commitments you make and the steps you take in your life are even more important than the insights gained or the support experienced during a coaching session. Life is where you will learn to trust yourself. Without taking any steps or honoring your commitments, you won’t be doing yourself or coaching any justice. You must take action, reflect on your experience, and distill an important lesson to help you keep moving towards a richer and more fulfilling life.
The Value of Coaching & The Investment
What is it worth to you to improve your life? Only you can be the judge of that. For the next few minutes, try to imagine achieving your desired outcomes and the way you’d rather be feeling about life and about yourself. If someone (me) can help you work towards that, are you willing to invest in making that happen?
You create the ultimate value when you commit to the process and begin to make meaningful changes in your life. When you begin to have shifts in the way you think and the way you feel, when you begin to feel happier, freer and more purposeful, you will see it’s very hard to put a price on that but I assure you it’s worth every penny and every minute of effort.
In terms of costs, prepare to invest anywhere from $800 for a short coaching engagement to $3,000 for a fuller & more comprehensive experience, or somewhere in between.
Together we will personalize a custom-tailored approach for your personal needs where the amount, frequency and length of each session will be designed in a way that you get the support you need to reach your goals and grow. I know that coaching will make a significant difference in your life but the investment isn’t just a financial one. You will need to invest time for the sessions themselves and in between sessions to reflect and do your own personal ‘work’.
We can discuss all the details in your free coaching exploration session (consultation) and by the end of it, I’ll outline a package that is just right for you to get started. Or, you can have a look at this page for a few possible coaching packages and fees that may work for you.
There’s no maximum defined length of a coaching relationship. As long as it’s helping you move forward in your life and you feel better about yourself, your accomplishments and your growth, you may find you want to continue working together about once a month after our initial engagement.
You won’t be locked into any contracts and there’s no fine print. The choice is always yours.
FYI – Life coaching is highly suitable for having sessions remotely by phone or video (zoom, skype) and I have clients across North America but if you’re interested to have in-person sessions, I offer life coaching sessions in Richmond Hill & Markham, Vaughan/Concord, and various Toronto locations.
“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”
