Here are what just a few of Garth’s
clients had to say:

Garth really helped me devise clear goals in a straightforward and positive manner and celebrated my wins and progression throughout the journey. He also helped me deal with tough situations and difficult circumstances not only in the moment but a whole rework of how to approach things better in the future. He is a great life coach!

Life is a complex and humbling journey.  Garth guided me to such clarity, drive and sense of purpose that I was able to become an entirely better person than I thought I could be.  Garth is extraordinarily generous, sensitive, and keenly intuitive.  He gave me tools to navigate my journey, and empowered me to craft my own, and in our brief time together he became more than a mentor to me - he became a friend. Having been sceptical (yet curious) when I started my coaching journey, I can now comfortably and enthusiastically recommend Garth to everyone with the ambition to be a better, more confident version of themselves. It is a joy to experience.

My coaching experience with Garth was transformative. I found him to be highly sensitive to and observant of my needs, in no small part because he is an incredibly good listener. He has the rare ability to really see another person, listen to them, and meet them where they are. I learned a lot about the simple consistency needed to change oneself through the exercises he took me through, and he managed to always share just the right TED Talk to help me with my current situation. I wouldn’t change anything about the process, and now the onus lies on me to continue the work – for which I now have a handful of great resources to guide me.

“I could never express myself about my passion or purpose in life - and at 51 I met this amazing person (my life coach - Garth) and he brings out a whole lot of stuff I have known for a long time and puts it into context to show me who I am and what I do to enrich the lives of others as well as mine. I think the most remarkable of all, is the fact that he was able to articulate what I did and translate it into meaningful words / phrases and activities to show me where I am and where I need to grow.” “Garth's techniques and approach to his activities (such as planting avocado pits) were breath-taking.” “We need more people like Garth – Life Coaches can make touch work look easy. Sometime people just need a little push in another direction that can give them a second breath. I have more than a second breath now – my conversation with people makes so much sense and people are in love with my story”

My work with Garth was a valuable part of my sabbatical process. He served as a mirror to me as we discussed what I consider important in my life. With that in mind we developed tools together that I today use to find better routes that take me closer to living a life of balance. We refined the ways that I work and the trade-offs that I may need to make to find this balance. By reinvigorating my morning silent time and building habits to note what is happening in my inner landscape I learned how to listen better to that what is within. The work we did solidified the narrative sand metaphors for my life that stand in agreement with my truth. While this was just part of my journey, the time I took out each week for a session grounded me and brought renewed focus. I am really grateful for the work that we did together and would definitely recommend his services.
