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 highly recommend Robert as a Life Coach. He provided value in his ability to assess situation quickly and offer tools to achieve greater balance in my life. He made it clear for me to choose a course of action to gain positive change in my daily life. Robert is reliable, friendly, professional and a great listener. Working with Robert was a wonderful experience.

I met with Robert for the first time this past spring after a very difficult year of work had left me stressed, confused and without answers. He immediately cut through the mess of noise that was keeping me distracted and frustrated, isolating specific items to target for best results. There was little pandering or over-empathizing, rather a focus on practical, real world tools to get from point A to point B in short order. Six months onwards, I can say that every iota of Robert's advice worked out to a tee, leaving my life much more arranged and calm, able to take the next steps in a planned and measured way for perhaps the first time in my life. Highly recommended!

Robert is a great life coach. I contacted him at a moment when I wanted to transition professionally and he was present to walk me through my options, to provide guidance and to support my decisions. He is a very good listener but also actively engages with you to give you just that other perspective or option, to share real-life examples, and to make you feel that your dreams can come true. I came out of every session optimistic and energized - I felt grounded but reached for the stars.

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

In 1990, a young American meditation teacher asks the Dalai Lama a seemingly simple question. “Your Holiness, what do you think about self-hatred?” The Dalai Lama is taken aback. Perplexed. His answer, when it comes, surprises everyone.

“What is that?”

What’s with that puzzled response? Was the Dalai Lama pulling our leg? Was it some translation glitch? Or was he suggesting that a life without negative self-talk might actually be a possibility for each and every one of us?

That’s what this book is about.

You need not be the Dalai Lama – or even a Tibetan monk – to live a life free of negative self-talk. Life coach Robert McFadden has helped hundreds of people just like you turn around their challenging relationships with their inner critic. This book introduces a practice Robert and his clients have developed over the past ten years to reduce and eliminate negative self-talk from your life. A practice you can begin applying right away to create the change you want.

“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

Love Your Negative Self-Talk looks at limiting beliefs, attitudes and behaviors about negative self-talk. How they hold us back from making the choices and changes we want. It also lays out practical ways we can build clarity and consistency in our day-to-day experience. How we can introduce little shifts into whatever we do to open ourselves up to curiosity, compassion and confidence. And more. Integrity.

This book has an important message. You do not have to live bound by limiting perspectives and beliefs. There is a much less costly and far more rewarding approach available. You already have the knowledge, skills and the abilities you need to create the change you want. It all begins with your response to negative self-talk. It’s not a matter of what you think. It’s not a matter of what you intend. It’s not a matter of what you want or wish. And it’s certainly not a matter of what you are. You do not have to feel threatened by negative self-talk. You can turn your most vicious critic into your most valued collaborator.
