“Many of my most important breakthroughs and insights have come from conversations with Galina. It still amazes me how often this happens. What makes Galina so great at what she does is that she not only talks the talk, but also walks the talk. She is very knowledgeable and uses tools, techniques, and approaches that have yielded strong positive results in her own life. This gives her unusually sharp insight as a coach into what works, what the challenges are, and what steps to take for best results. She knows when to listen, what questions to ask, and what limiting beliefs and limiting self-talk to look out for and challenge. On several occasions, Galina has recommended books to me and made suggestions after our conversations that proved to be EXACTLY the critical insight I needed in order to get past certain limiting ways of thinking or limiting beliefs and do so permanently. Galina has without a doubt been a very critical part of the significant progress I have made in the last year in getting clear on what best serves me and in overcoming the obstacles that stood in the way of my goals”.

"It’s as if Galina was designed to be a life coach! She brings a lot of useful tools to the table that really support me in setting tangible goals, and taking steps to attain them. Before working with her, I viewed goals more as pipe-dreams...projects I wanted to start but that fizzled before even getting off the ground. Galina came in armed with spreadsheets, weekly phone calls, check-points, and google docs file sharing so that we are always aware of the progress I’ve made, and what’s left to get done. In addition to her technical savvy and precision, she also brings her unique ability in detecting limiting beliefs, and we work together to clear them so that I come from a place of inspiration versus drudgery. And she most definitely challenges me to stretch beyond my comfort zone. Thank you so much Galina for all your hard work and support!"

"Galina Lipina coached me as a part of a leadership practice program for a period of three months between March and June of 2009. Galina made herself available for my phone calls at any time of day. She asked pertinent questions to stimulate my thinking in creating my next step or to breakthrough my stopping point. She was upbeat and courageous; she always had my interests as her priority. It was Galina who opened up the courage in me to be risk-taking and conquer my fear. I am very thankful to her for that; it made all the difference in my well being today."

"I've been working with Galina for several months now. Her coaching has helped bring my priorities into focus and clear the obstacles standing in my way of realizing my goals. And it's not all theory: she worked with me to develop my goals into meaningful daily actions. Her unique style is gentle, never overbearing; but I'm still held accountable for my actions. I highly recommend her coaching for anyone looking to make an improvement to their lives."

You are a very good heart person that listens every detail of what we have to say and helps us explore the shadows of our own thoughts that we keep ignoring or bumping in to and you make us realize that and find a clear view. Having that is opening to new roads and a good feeling about ourselves.
