Your six month Health Coaching Program helped me  in so many ways . . . I value the opportunity to work and  learn from you in the months and years to come.

Your six month health coaching Program helped me in so many ways that I simply don’t know where to begin. I’ve learned so much that helps me physically, emotionally and spiritually every day. That’s why I worked with you to complete the six-month schedule not once, but twice. And that’s why I value the opportunity to work and learn from you in the months and years to come.

Thanks to you I was able to not only stay on the path  of a healthier lifestyle, but learned to take action rather  than procrastinate over decisions to create the life I want.

Thanks to you I was able to not only stay on the path of a healthier lifestyle, but learned to take action rather than procrastinate over decisions to create the life I want. Over the course of the program you showed me that the answers were within me-thanks for guiding me to bring them to the surface.

I felt a sense of trust that enabled me to explore areas of my life without fear of judgement. I feel that I grew in many areas of my life during our extraordinary 6 months together enabling me to effortlessly make small, gradual dietary changes and developed a compassionate attitude towards myself in the area of overindulging (ice cream).

... I have lowered my cholesterol (263 – 228), am making  more educated decisions rather than emotional ones and  am no longer using over the counter sleeping aids.

In the six months I worked with you I learned many ways to improve upon my diet. What stands out most is the importance of water. I also never knew there was such a variety of grains. I have made better choices when meal planning for my family. And personally, I have lowered my cholesterol (263-228), am making more educated decisions rather than emotional ones and am no longer using over the counter sleeping aids.

I came into the program out of frustration. I had consulted with many doctors, was on four medications for hives and two for depression. Not much was happening. With the completion of the program, I haven’t had hives for 2 months, I’m happier, sleeping better and for the first time I did NOT take any work with me on
my vacation!

I learned about myself and what types of food were  best for my body type ... As a result, I am eating healthier,  feeling healthier, have more energy and am no longer  addicted to coffee. Yeah!

For me, the health coaching Program was educational. I learned about myself and what types of food were best for my body type. Then I learned about how all the foods I was currently eating and drinking were affecting my energy level and health. It was informative, fun and non-threatening. As a result, I am eating healthier, feeling healthier, have more energy and am no longer addicted to coffee. Yeah!

... after 3 months my check up showed my cholesterol  and sugar numbers down and within normal range and  I had lost weight (a bonus!).

On May 23, 2005 I made a life altering decision to start a six month health coaching Program with Doreen. My sugar and cholesterol were climbing. We began with a program of eating well to fit my life style and health problems. I then decided to make a further commitment to my health and join an exercise program. I was very pleasantly surprised when after 3 months my check up showed my cholesterol and sugar numbers down and within normal range and I had lost weight (a bonus!). As the course progressed, I saw that I was thinking of myself –first as a person then a daughter, a wife and mother. I’ve learned how to relax with meditation-a calming influence in my hectic life. I truly enjoyed the course and have signed up for another six months.
