…I found my voice.

You have challenged me to be the best I can be and live my life in alignment with my values. You have a gift of speech, confidence, certainty and an ability to see the bright side of life. You have helped me be strong and supported me while I found my voice.

I feel more on track and living the way I want to live.

You are an expert in really narrowing in on how I want to live my life. Drawing out my true desires for my life, listening and guiding, not judging and celebrating what I have been forgetting to celebrate. You have helped me so much. I feel more on track and living the way I want to live. I am still not perfect and it’s a work in progress but I am able to celebrate all of my accomplishments, big and small.

Janet challenged me

I came to Janet for coaching during a significant career change in my life. Janet challenged me, listened to me, pushed me, and generally helped me transform my life. Her ability to hear and reflect my experience made her a particularly effective coach.

Janet has helped me move forward in my career.

I was immediately excited to work with Janet. She has a calm and warm demeanor that allowed me to feel comfortable. My brief time with Janet has given me the insight and tools to take risks in my life that I might have otherwise talked myself out of attempting. Janet has helped me move forward in my career by helping me realize that I was the one holding myself back… by listening to the sabotaging voice. The voice of fear and negativity that would not allow me to take risks and to make greater steps forward has changed. I am now able to focus on my goals and go after them.

I felt lighter and brighter after our conversation.

Thank you again for our session. I loved it!! I love the way you approach things. I felt lighter and brighter after our conversation. After our chat I went for a walk and there was a bounce in my step. I was standing taller, walking lighter and noticing more…Like the birds singing the blooms on the trees and the hedge next door!

You were able to help me tap into a drive, focus and passion that I forgot I even had.

I felt so overwhelmed and scared about my high sugar levels back then and was probably more terrified then I let it show. But through your coaching, fear was alleviated by acknowledging and implementing small changes at times and bigger ones at other times. I find it very easy to open up to you from the beginning. You have a very warm and comforting way of coaching, while being able to push me where I wanted to be. You were able to help me tap into a drive, focus and passion that I forgot I even had. You helped to boost my confidence and helped me to really narrow in on what I want in my life for myself and my family.

Janet is my role model and inspiration.

I chose Janet as my coach through the Coach Match program with CTI. The reason I chose her is because her biography was so thorough, open, and authentic. I had some of the same life experiences, so I felt I could relate to Janet and trust her as my coach. Janet has a lovely way of putting me at ease. She is compassionate, intuitive, insightful, and encouraging. Janet is my role model and inspiration!

I am now able to focus more clearly on my goals.

As a result of knowing you, the impact on my life has been very positive. I am now able to focus more clearly on my goals and not get distracted with things that don’t matter. I think you are an expert at making people feel very comfortable, and able to open up to you. Your strengths are your ability to keep your clients focused on the problem they have, we tend to stray away from the actual issue- and you have the ability to keep the conversation direction on the bigger picture- thus saving time, and getting straight to the point. You have helped me identify that my dreams can come to pass as long as I direct my energy on the task at hand.

Janet is the best in my opinion! She gave me strength and clarity. I really looked forward to our sessions, and was excited to “report” back to her with my success. I am positive Janet can help anyone face any situation.
