Who I Work With

Who Benefits From Life Design Coaching?

“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—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.

Almost all are successful in many ways, but can’t, yet, create the results that matter most to them in life, work, relationships … whatever.

“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

Personal Coaching Clients Come To Me

  • Stuck, stalled, drifting, unable to get on track and moving forward
  • Not sure what results they want to create
  • Lacking clear visions of results they do want
  • A tendency to jump into action, stall, then quit in frustration
  • Over-relying on problem-solving as their primary life strategy
  • Doing fine—but NOT at what matters to them
  • Looking to simplify life and work to focus energy and action on what truly matters

Almost all seek a vision and purpose that energizes them, and engages their spirt and soul, and practical tools for creating results that lead to fulfillment and satisfaction.

Most failed to create what most matters, because they lacked a tried-and-true organizing framework in which to integrate vision and reality, energize action, and consistently create the results they most want to bring into being.

Life Design Coaching helps them redesign and restructure their lives and work to support their deepest dreams and highest aspirations.

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

I Also Offer Emotional Mastery Coaching

If you’re stuck—feeling anxious or depressed—please visit my Emotional Mastery page, and The ABCs of Emotional Mastery.

Emotional Mastery coaching involves a kind of “cognitive restructuring”—identifying and changing the negative, self-sabotaging stories you tell yourself to make them more accurate, objective, emotionally neutral—and supportive of your most important goals.

Doing so frees up energy with which to shift from a problem-focused stance to a results-creating stance. When you can create desired results, problems mostly dissolve.

EM Coaching can be part of Life Design Coaching, or stand-alone sessions.

Forever indebted to you for introducing me to The Creative Process some 20 yrs + ago!!! You coached me to “create a life that matters most to me & live that life!” I have created success both professionally & personally, that makes me feel grateful & blessed everyday! That life, my life, is always evolving & growing. You continue to inspire me, Coach!!  ❤️
