Brenda Bentley of Brenda Bentley Coaching is thoughtful, patient, and an incredible coach. I've had the pleasure of working with her in two capacities - via her “Healthy Lifestyles - Body, Mind and Spirit” workshop and private coaching sessions. Brenda’s Healthy Lifestyles workshop combined various tools to assist me in developing a healthy and sustainable eating plan. The tools she introduced included a group setting to share and learn from others in the workshop, one-on-one coaching session to help customize the eating plans and hypnotherapy to include all levels of consciousness in making the lifestyle changes. This workshop raised my awareness that I also needed to address some self-esteem issues if I was going to maintain the healthy lifestyle change I had begun.
Brenda's coaching session was incredibly powerful. She helped me define “self esteem”, determine where to put my focus and break down problems I was facing into manageable pieces. I had just ended working with a therapist and Brenda was able to help me determine workable action plans to achieve my goals. Each session allowed me to walk away knowing what next steps I needed to work through them. She never expected me to adapt to a structure thinking model, rather she customized her work with me using tools that worked best for me. Throughout our time together I felt her genuine concern for my progress. Lastly, she facilitate our discussion when it was time to branch out on my own. Not only did she hep me work through some deep and important core issues, she also left me with more tools so I didn’t need to be dependent upon therapy or coaching forever.
