After working with Robert over a period of 2-3 sessions, I was able to speak about my goals in a much more clear and passionate way. He helped me get specific about what I wanted to do in my life and I’m happy to say I’ve made major strides towards fully realizing my goals/purpose in life. I cannot recommend Robert enough. If you’re feeling stuck or under-utilized, I highly recommend booking a session with Robert to work through it together.

I embarked on my journey with a life coach with some hesitation, but by the end of my first session with Robert I was convinced I had made the right decision. He's very perceptive and quick to offer interesting insights and anecdotes that add color and life to our conversations. The focus was unfailingly on next steps but there was always space and time to discuss the past. Through our work together I feel I have much better insights about my past and much clearer direction for the future. I would recommend Robert without hesitation.

I consulted with Robert at a time when I was debating many paths towards an important objective of mine. Within a single session, we were able to quickly identify and prioritize different options on a timeline. I found the session both practical and personable. Ultimately, I attained my goal within weeks of the targeted timeframe. It was a pleasure working with Robert and I will gladly reach out to him again when faced with another challenge requiring some perspective.

During a big transition time in my life, I started working with Robert to gain clarity and perspective to help me make some important decisions. He was instrumental in helping me structure my thoughts and ideas, refine my identity and move forward on my journey with certainty. Robert has an incredible ability to get to the source of a situation or dilemma, and has a knack for helping people exploit their own creativity and approach to solutions!

Choosing to work with Robert was a simple decision. His excellent reviews and initial phone conversation provided clear context to the services he could provide. Now having worked with him, I can only say it has been a joy to receive his coaching. He creates a safe and supportive environment, and guides you through your goals in a step by step manner. Each session I walked away with new insight and a fresh perspective. I would highly recommend Robert for anyone looking for personal or professional coaching!

Energize your intentions

MONTREAL GAZETTE Special Report Read article featuring the coaching experience of Robert’s client Celia Ostroff (April 13, 2012).

I really like Robert’s approach. He’s great if you’re unable to see where to start, or not sure what’s holding you back. Robert pays attention. He is a thorough listener with an infectious upbeat manner and offers a casual and comfortable atmosphere. He will energize your intentions and help you get excited about your dreams again. I have achieved many victories with the help of his coaching and have great momentum for getting more done. I highly recommend him.”   – Joni D., Technical Writer

LOVE YOUR NEGATIVE SELF-TALK introduces exciting new practices to eliminate negative self-talk and create the kind of life you want. Drawing on over a decade of 1-on-1 coaching work, author Robert McFadden outlines effective strategies for transforming your relationship with yourself through small shifts in thoughts, habits and actions.

Along the way, you’ll discover solutions to limiting beliefs, attitudes and behaviours that may be holding you back from making the choices and changes you want. How can you stop turning in self-defeating circles and start building clarity, commitment and consistency in your day-to-day experience? How can you step back from a life of self-doubt and sabotage to one of open curiosity, compassion and confidence?

The message in this book is simple. You do not have to live bound by limiting perspectives and beliefs. There is a much less costly and far more rewarding approach available. It all begins with your response to negative self-talk. You too can turn your most vicious critic into your most valued collaborator.

Here’s how.

“Every week, I have conversations with people who struggle with the toughest opponent they’ve ever faced. The most obstinate, offensive and obnoxious adversary they know. Their inner critic. Most of these people are quick to recognize their competencies and achievements. Many lead stimulating and rewarding lives. Most enjoy warm personal relationships, exciting professional challenges and excellent health. Still, they all too often wind up slammed against the wall. Confronted by some of the most mean-spirited, contemptuous and debilitating thoughts imaginable. Negative self-talk.”

– Robert McFadden
