Robert is one of those people that will change your life forever. When I started my sessions of Life Coaching I was pretty much in a state where I had no hope for improvements and was even considering moving away from Canada! My professional burn-out was driving me crazy insecure about my career and the current company I am working at. After 3 months of weekly sessions, I am now in charge of my life once again and more confident than ever at work and with my art! My life is now moving forward and thanks to Robert.

I embarked on my journey with a life coach with some hesitation, but by the end of my first session with Robert I was convinced I had made the right decision. He's very perceptive and quick to offer interesting insights and anecdotes that add color and life to our conversations. The focus was unfailingly on next steps but there was always space and time to discuss the past. Through our work together I feel I have much better insights about my past and much clearer direction for the future. I would recommend Robert without hesitation.

After a difficult period with my business and personal life, Robert was extremely helpful in guiding me to find joy in my work and peace with myself. He opened my eyes about a lot of ways to lead and to trust. When I think back on how I felt when I first walked in compared to one year later, I am impressed at how much change a person can go through when they are being guided by the right person.

During a big transition time in my life, I started working with Robert to gain clarity and perspective to help me make some important decisions. He was instrumental in helping me structure my thoughts and ideas, refine my identity and move forward on my journey with certainty. Robert has an incredible ability to get to the source of a situation or dilemma, and has a knack for helping people exploit their own creativity and approach to solutions!

Robert is a great life coach. I contacted him at a moment when I wanted to transition professionally and he was present to walk me through my options, to provide guidance and to support my decisions. He is a very good listener but also actively engages with you to give you just that other perspective or option, to share real-life examples, and to make you feel that your dreams can come true. I came out of every session optimistic and energized - I felt grounded but reached for the stars.

More than one friend recommended Robert to me. I was struggling with procrastination and several simultaneous life changes of a major scale. Robert was attentive and helped guide me towards isolating my priorities and setting realistic goals. I found him personable, professional and accommodating.

Robert's approach is insightful and light-hearted, and he has an excellent way of normalizing life's everyday challenges in a way that makes them seem much more manageable. He seems to have an endless supply of helpful tips on how to better manage your life and holds you accountable to the goals you set out for yourself. I leave every session with a fresh outlook and a clear understanding of what to do that week. For anyone seeking support and practical life-wisdom, you can't ask for anyone better! :)
