"Nina - it was serendipity timing for me finding out about the course when it was about to start, as I had been looking for more knowledge and skills in this powerful area of coaching. The course information and delivery did not disappoint and Nina's inclusive style and expertise in the area were both great to learn from and encouranging. The mini coach sessions both for individuals and for the group were great to gain from both for personal insights and for client application.
"Coming from a counseling background, this course has been very valuable to me. I have gained a better understanding of body-centered coaching and how it can be applied in many different ways and settings. I have truly enjoyed being a participant in Nina's training program. Her knowledge coupled with her warmth and compassion shines through in everything she does. After every "meeting" I have come away being even more curious and wanting to learn more. I have gained a deeper sense on how to better support my clients in reconnecting with their bodies and minds. I highly recommend this course."

It can take a moment in time and create a connections that clears a path to AHA moments. Nina led the way to a deeper connection with myself that is helping me to share the same experience with others. As a speaker who needs to quickly get the audience engaged with themselves and me, these body-centered tools will help me achieve the that goal. Thank you Nina.”

I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning more about Body-Centered Coaching.”

“Nina has been like a Godsend to me. Going through change, even change that we consciously choose to make can be very turbulent and scary at times. Nina stands solid, calm and as a reminder of hope when the world feels rocky and I’m about to give up. In those times of rockiness, and we’ve been through a few of them now, Nina is like the lighthouse which serves as a silent beacon to ships in storm.
Wait! She’s even more than that because even when I’m half sunk and going down, and I can no longer see the lighthouse, Nina helps me feel and find it ~ from within. Sometimes she asks gentle but powerful questions that help me see my situation from another perspective, so that I can reclaim my power of creative choice in a situation. Other times, she invites me to connect with my body and then calmly and quietly holds the space so I can more deeply feel and honour where I truly am. More often than not, Nina’s coaching helps me not only see the value of where I am ( even when it feels awful!) but she also helps me access my knowing and my wisdom from within. Nina teaches me, again and again, that no matter where I am, I am my own lighthouse in the storm. I’m not sure where the lighthouse metaphor goes from here, but I’m thinking that maybe Nina is a star of trust and faith that shines so bright in the darkest of dark nights, that it turns on my inner lighthouse. My gratitude to you, Nina is as big as the sky, and my appreciation of you ocean deep.”

“Nina has been my career coach for over a year. To me, success is much more than a big bank account, which Nina has really succeeded in listening to. Getting together the career and personal life is challenging for many, so even for me. Nina manages to combine many tools of coaching with her own life experiences and together with her curiosity and professional manner; she guides me to find the keys to my own growth and happiness. Nina is a humble, sensitive coach where joy and harmony is at the center without dodging the tough questions that lead to success. THANK YOU Nina for coming my way!”

“Nina is a highly effective "life coach" and a joy to work with. The greatest benefit that I've experienced is Nina would not let me give up on my dreams! She was right there with me through the challenges and rough patches and continue to help me see a different perspective and see the value I continue to bring to the game; that is invaluable to me in accomplishing my objectives. I highly recommend Nina as a talented life coach bringing insight, lightness and deep innovative thought to coaching sessions.”
