What can I expect?

Expect subtle changes over time as well as major “ah-ha” moments.  The first few sessions involve a discovery process, where we define what your vision is and what tools we'll need on that journey. We'll also design our working relationship to best suit you and your needs.

Facts about coaching

Is coaching by phone as effective as in person?

Yes, and many people prefer it once they have experienced it. You get to be in the privacy of your own space, which makes it easier and safer to communicate freely. It also allows you to work with a coach who is best for you regardless of location, and it's convenient - no parking hassles. 

In person coaching is also available on a limited basis.

How long does it take to get results?

It took a lifetime to create some of your patterns, habits, and reactions to events in your life, so give yourself some time to figure things out.  Many people do experience dynamic changes, sometimes very rapidly.

Many professionals consider having a coach an essential part of their success and personal development and have long term commitments.

I would like to share my thoughts about David Gomes. I was in a negative place where nothing was the way I wanted it to be. After just a couple of sessions with David, who has incredible listening skills, compassion, respect and the knowledge to know when to ask you to dig deeper, I felt a significant shift in the way I perceived my world. I learned strategies, tools and the belief that I am the Captain of my life, free to shape it anyway I wish. Today I am living the life I was only able to dream of prior to my coaching sessions with David. I am truly thankful for his wisdom and guidance. This process transformed me.
