Who I Work With


“Outsized. Couldn’t find work. Stuck!
Bruce helped me clarify what I wanted, then helped me create it.
I’m now a freelance designer, and loving it!”

— Beth Brown, Graphic Designer, Toronto, ON

I work with a variety of clients with different needs and wants—from single moms to Fortune 500 CEOs.

My clients include downshifters, doctors, actors, activists, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, homemakers, home business aspirants, Swiss bankers, retireesand a host of writers, authors, painters, photographers, filmmakers and other creatives.

“Your life coaching had a profound impact on my life, both personal and professional. You have a very special way of challenging clients in a firm but gentle way to look above the smog to see the top of the mountain.”

Les Brost, President, Southernstar Communications, Edmonton, AB

Clients come to me with varied needs and desires

  • Stuck, stalled, drifting, unable to get on track and moving forward
  • Not sure what results they want to create
  • Lacking a clear visions of the results they do want
  • A tendency to jump into action, stall, then quit in frustration
  • Conceptual goals ( “success,” “simple life,” “new car”), not clear, compelling visions of specific results
  • Over-relying on problem-solving as a primary life strategy
  • Doing fine—just not at what truly matters to them
  • Almost all lack a framework to integrate vision and reality, energize action, and create successful results.

Almost all seek a vision and purpose that will energize them, engage their souls, and lead to a deep and lasting sense of satisfaction.

“I tried coaching, attended dozens of workshops, and read hundreds of self-help books. Most helped, but not for long. It wasn’t until Bruce helped me change my life/work structures that I was able to create lasting success. Now I feel as if I’m floating through life with newfound ease.

E.D. Mayeroff, Vancouver, BC

Most yearn for the lightness of simple yet rich, fulfilling and healthy lives, work and relationships.

Simple white feather floating in the air, with a deep blue sky behind it. The lightness of simple, rich lives.
