This is what some of our personal life coaching clients told us.
I've spent most of my adult life trying to recover from a difficult childhood and, like a lot of people, I have tried many therapies and read countless self-help books. Some of this was very helpful, but Life Coaching gave me the real motivation to make changes, which have led to improvements in all areas of my life.
Although my focus was on career development, I found that looking at how I think and what I believe, and setting goals and formulating steps to achieve these, with the guidance and encouragement of my Life Coach, has brought me a degree of success and happiness, which I hardly believed would be possible at the beginning of my journey. It has changed my outlook on life and possibilities, and given me the insight and skills to continue the journey forward on all fronts.
I highly recommend the Be Happy in LIFE coaching program to anyone, whatever age or stage in life.

I am doing well since I had a session with you. My relationship with my wife has improved and we are working through things more positively.
I am nearly finished my counselling studies and am working 2 days a week volunteering for Mission Australia. Great experience as I am working with Men and running groups for life skills, etc.

Doing life coaching has allowed me to take control of my life - I decide what I want and when. When I focus on something I want, I program myself to choose what happens. When you leave what happens in life to chance, you give away your power to have what you want in life.
I've realised that I am blessed with abundant resources for achieving my goals. I need to reward myself for working hard towards my goals.
I'm a digital-auditory communicator, so I'm focusing on developing my kinesthetic side at the moment. I'm now able to plan ahead and fit in all those little steps in my daily life so that I can achieve my dreams almost without thinking.
The skills I've gained from coaching have allowed me to take control of my life and develop a leadership mentality and be able to guide other people to realise their goals.

I know you don't know me and convinced you have heard much about me as much as I have heard about you. I wanted to thank you for helping Sabrina overcomes her post natal depression and giving me my wife back. I have known her for 10 years and have never seen her happy like this. Bless you!
John, 37, Business man, husband of a client, Brisbane, Australia
Things are going well for me here. I have spent a lot more time on social activities and balance ... I am feeling more positive in myself.
I would like to thank you again for being my Life Coach and for what you have given me ... it has made an impact on my life and I am still trying to improve myself day by day. I came to the stage that I had achieved what I was looking for and am very satisfied with this.
Daniel Robb, Hotel Desk Manager
I came to coaching to be able to handle those people who upset me in life in a more positive way and to form a friendship with them instead of walking around carrying a negative feeling with me and I have formed friendships with those who at one stage in my life I did not always see eye to eye with.
I can now be positive and not be afraid of people that I once feared. I know how to read others and what signs to look for when dealing with others so that I can handle difficult situations in a way that provides a more positive outcome.
I have formed a friendship with a person I once thought did not like me and I now make a point of doing things that I personally enjoy, for myself. I feel fantastic.
Coaching was fun. I always walked away feeling inspired. You were warm, friendly, a great listener and mentor.
I would say to others: provided you are willing to do it for yourself and are ready to make a few changes, do life coaching because you are able to turn things around in a few short months instead of having to wait a whole lifetime for things to happen around you.
Gal, Ronit and family, I would sincerely like to thank you for having me in your home and being so warm and friendly. It truly was good for me to go through the motions and I now have my folder of knowledge to look back on if I feel myself slipping to reinforce the good lessons you have taught me.

Thank you so much for the time you spent with [me] today. It was a most valuable visit for me ... It was clear that you had spent considerable time thinking about what information was important to share with [me] & I commend you for the thoroughness with which you covered the 'facts'. As a result, I have a whole new insight ... and it is indeed a 'life' focus.
As I am typing this, I can feel my temperature rising because 'I know' what it is I am meant to do. Ronit summed it up perfectly when she challenged me today about what it is I am 'driven to do'. I know, and I believe that [you] could sense it. I thank you for being the mirror, as I needed to be reminded of this at this time. I am, first and foremost, a musician who is driven to express myself in singing, song writing and helping others to 'find' themselves through music.
I was also most impressed by the selflessness that you approached this meeting, as I was half expecting the 'hard sell' tactics to convince me to coach with you, with a hidden agenda that you would benefit by my doing so. After having spent some time with you, I can see that you have evolved past this and have a genuine interest for others to achieve their own dreams and potential, even if you don't make any money out of it!
Well Done! I believe you have earned this respect and admiration.
John Rodriguez, Singer & Song Writer
I went home after our session and realized I did not trust myself. I felt helpless and going to doctors only made it worse. I had heard you saying to me, 'Only you have the power to heal you', so for 4 days, I forced myself to drink a lot of water. I never thought it was so hard to drink 12 cups of water a day. On the 5th day, after sleeping like a baby and only having to get up to go to the toilet, I woke up and it was like magic. It was gone. I couldn't believe it. I haven't used cortisones for 10 days and I have no make-up on my face. Look!
When I entered the life coaching program I was unsure of what the outcomes would be. I knew I wanted to develop and understand who I really was and what my goals in life were but never knew how to go about that.
I've only been in the program for 4 weeks and already my life has become so much more positive. I am on my way to achieving my goals and understanding where my thoughts and feelings come from.
This journey of self discovery that I am on motivates and inspires me everyday and with the guidance of Ronit I have been able to start learning about who I am and in which direction I want my life to go.
My new mission statement is: "The future is bright because I believe it is bright!" Thank you for all the support and guidance, I look forward to learning something new in every session.
By the way, I meditated every day that I was in Canberra and feel so great. I don't even need an alarm to wake up early, I tell myself that I'm going to wake up after I have 8 hours sleep and I do! It's so refreshing to realise how powerful my mind can be if I actually use it effectively.
Alicia Ferguson, Professional Sport, Australia
I'll write down my new beliefs about money and send them back to you.
The elephants are not just things I say but what I hear others around me say as well, so to answer your question, no I don't smoke, never have and never will. It was just an example of what I hear from others which I think you were asking for. I'll just continue to do mine if you like?
It's been good having some extra time to complete the beliefs section because there was a lot of homework and a lot of thinking that I've been doing on my beliefs. I think by next week I'll truly understand them, have set positive beliefs and be ready to learn more again!
I really enjoy receiving your feedback because it encourages me to answer the hard questions that you ask which I never asked myself. It's also great getting your non judgmental perspective on my thoughts and feelings.
I'll be in touch soon.
I have to say our last meeting was really great... I had tried to change the way I think/see the world for a long time... but never succeeded, I think I can do it now because I understand there is support system created for each belief... I had never considered this before.
I started analysing my beliefs as soon as I left you and now it's been a week, I really think it's working, slowly, but it is... I can feel it... I still have a VERY LONG WAY to go... but it's a start, a great start.
Adriana Diaz, Ph.D student, After 4 sessions
I am now comfortable with the fact that I am not perfect. Now when I make a mistake I smile to myself and some times I laugh. I take joy in the fact that these little mistakes that I make can be turned into humorous stories or if nothing else a lesson worth learning in life.
I am also comfortable with the fact that everyone is different. I think I always liked the idea of everybody being different but I never realized that I was often expecting people to be like me, to think like me, to do what I do and to say what I say. Now when someone thinks, does or says something completely different to what I would think, do or say, I try to find a way to understand and/or just accept that we are different but ultimately appreciate that there are these differences.
Most importantly I am comfortable with who I am and where I am now in my life. Now I am able to block out negative feelings and emotions more effectively than I have ever been able to. I am a happier person because of life coaching.

I first met Ronit about 6 or 7 years ago during a very difficult time in my life. I was at a crossroads in my life. I was feeling very unhappy. I was always confused as to why life was so hard & what was the meaning of it all. Big questions! This one particular day, I literally just googled "how to be happy". I thought that happy people must know something that I don't and I wanted some answers.
Ronit's website popped up. I did some reading & made the appointment. It was exactly what I needed. Ronit taught me all about the different personalities of people & how we all learn, behave & react differently to different things. This helped me to understand my partner better & ultimately save our marriage.
Over the years I have been able to use all of the techniques that Ronit has taught me. I set a goal & see myself achieving it. With this, I have ran a half marathon, built my dream home, set up a successful business, created a happy marriage & have two beautiful daughters.
Most recently, I was having trouble with my daughter's school teacher. She was being a bully to the kids & as it was my first experience with primary school for my kids, I wasn't sure what to do. I contacted Ronit who was able to see me. Ronit gave her time to me generously. She didn't rush me. We went over so many things in our time. Most importantly, I realised that the courage was within me to confront the school & ultimately have our daughter moved to a new class, where she has been extremely happy ever since.
Ronit has taught me to trust my inner compass. That the answers are within me if I just sit & listen. She will always tell me the truth & what is needed to be heard. Her perspective on things is a blessing. I would recommend her services to anyone who asks me.
I wish you well Ronit.
Thank you for everything.

I came to coaching to make my life happier and to improve my personality. I had a severe stater and it affected my personal life and my work. It was really wonderful. I got what I expected to be done. It has made my life much better to the degree of changing my perception about how to live happily and successfully.
I can do a lot of things after coaching which I couldn’t do before such as, how to use my positive energy to overcome any stress through meditation and some relaxation techniques. I learned some NLP techniques and it was wonderful.
Moreover, I learned how to speak publically with high confidence and fluently, and how to change my thinking positively and successfully. I fell that I made a success in my life since I am more confident now and I can understand life from different aspects. Thank you Ronit for everything you have done for me. You were always smiling, have a positive energy, likes to help others generously.

I was reviewing my folder and goals last night and I came across my contract for change, titled "Inspire", that I wrote exactly a year ago. This was a wonderful moment for me, because late last year, I was awarded a prize from our leadership team for being inspiring, called the "Blank Canvas award".
I didn't remember my contract of change until I read it last night. Clearly, my subconscious mind did, and I had been working towards that goal for some time!

Thanks for your email summary of our session.
I must admit, I was quite exhausted after our meeting. I thought it would be very rational, focused on sharing information, but it was quite the contrary. I was still shaken the whole day. I noticed that something was happening to me inside. My head was spinning. I didn't expect it to happen so fast. I realize I am in a very fortunate situation and I will try to make the best out of it.
Thanks again for your time, knowledge, insights and inspiration! It has really added value to my life.
