Where are you today? Where do you want to be? What’s your next step? Life coaching offers practical, results-oriented ways to make the things you want happen with your personal, career and business challenges:
CLARITY: Realizing purpose, passion and priorities through your intentions, actions and outcomes. What do you want to achieve? Where can you get started? How will you know when you’ve succeeded? Clarity provides direction and focus for initiating and attaining a fulfilling and meaningful life.
COMMITMENT: Aligning motivation, trust and integrity with your values, principals and beliefs. What guides your choices and decisions? Your goals and results? How can you create and grow inner strength, suppleness and stamina? Commitment sets the foundation to get the personal and professional outcomes you want.
CONSISTENCY: Ensuring structure, discipline and accountability in your thoughts, words and deeds. How can you eliminate stress and overwhelm? Ensure future dependability? Make unexpected challenges more predictable? Consistency provides stable frames for exploring creativity and resilience to the full.
Ready to set aside past problems and start creating the change you want? Life coaching offers a highly effective approach for developing the clarity, commitment and consistency to overcome challenges you face today with outcomes you choose for tomorrow.

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.
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.
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.
“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.
“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
