To guide you through your self-discovery journey, whether it is life coaching, nutrition, or yoga, I approach each person and each session by the following five Milton H. Erickson guiding principles that I believe surrounds you and are within you. In addition to Erickson’s five principles, I also believe that you have limitless potential to make your life truly yours.
In our time together, I will use a series of questions and guided self-discovery exercises to help you create new thought patterns, behaviours, and habits that positively contribute to you and the life you want to live. The exercises are also meant to give you practical tools and insights that you can implement in your life beyond our time together.
While I will be asking the questions and providing the exercises, it’s important to note that you are the driver. You are the driver of your life, and you are the driver of our time together. All exercises are invitational and optional, and you are allowed to take the sessions as deeply and as far as you want. I do encourage you to approach our time together with an open mind and an open heart, as that is when change really begins.
New thought patterns, behaviours, and habits will eventually result in permanent lifestyle changes. And to ensure your permanent lifestyle changes are sustainable, we will approach your self-discoveries methodically and S.M.A.R.T.T.ly – specific, measureable, attainable, realistic, timely, and tangible.
According to Sigmund Freud, our mind is made up of three levels of consciousness – consciousness, sub-consciousness, and unconsciousness. Our consciousness makes up 10 percent of our brain usage and is used for concentration, learning new skills, and thinking. Our sub-consciousness makes up 50 percent of our brain usage, and is used to access our memory and habits, which also happens to store our experiences such as family patterns, and cultural and societal expectations. And lastly, our unconsciousness makes up the last 40 percent of our brain usage, and this is where our belief system resides, including our narratives, our perception of the world, and the stories that we created from our experiences and family patterns.
The work that we will do together throughout your journey is to get through your consciousness and sub-consciousness, and into your unconsciousness. Once we have reached your unconsciousness, we are in a position to change your belief systems, and create new narratives and new perceptions of yourself and of the world. It is the perfect state of mind for transformation. Belief systems are limiting because they are based on your present and the past. What we want to do is move away from that and into your vision, which is much more powerful as your vision is limitless because it is based on your present and future.
Lifestyle changes take approximately 90 days to become permanent. And they become permanent by you learning how to consistently, unconsciously, and intuitively leverage your values and vision to create intentional action steps that support your authentic self and the life you want to live. As you learn new skills, and new ways of being and thinking, you may experience a variety of emotions and that’s okay. Positive permanent change takes time, practice, and commitment.
Should emotions come up during your journey, and they do come up, don’t hold back. Ride through your emotions and get curious as to what and why you are experiencing what you are experiencing with self-compassion and kindness. The space we create together is safe for you to express and explore your emotions.
As we progress along our time together, you will know that you have grown and changed. Before, during, and after our time together, I will be taking a pulse check to see where your satisfaction levels are at in relations to key areas of your life that you want to work on. The pie chart below, called a Life Wheel, is what is used to measure your satisfaction levels. The slices within the life wheel will differ for everyone and will also differ depending on what services you purchase. If you purchase a nutrition package, your life wheel slices may include sleep, stress management, support network, meal planning, weight management, and diet. If you purchase a yoga package, your life wheel slices may include emotional wellbeing, physical strength, flexibility, spiritual wellbeing, stress management, and clarity. And if you purchase a life coaching package, your life wheel slices may include some of the categories below.
By the end of our time together, you will discover that you are your own true healer, creator, and master of your own universe. It’s not me. It’s not a medical doctor, or a therapist, a counselor, or even a self-help book. It’s you. All that I ask of you is that you approach our time together with an open mind, open heart, and a willingness for positive change.

You are so kind and pure. Your fearless attitude and honest humour are incredible.Cat
How can I repay you? Money does not express the gratitude that comes from the heart. You have guided me from a place of confusion, frustration, and just plain “in my head” to enlightenment, brightness and clarity. We all have the tools to accomplish this, but without your help, I was like a deer in headlights! Just stuck. When life gets tough, I feel safe to know that you are there for me.Janice M

Edmond is a patient, wise and empowering life coach. He is passionate about helping others discover the best versions of themselves. I was unclear as to what life coaching was at first. I had it confused with psychotherapy. Edmond gently and expertly guided me through our session where I gradually realized the difference between the two. I was now able to find tangible solutions to my concerns. Edmond enlightened me to ways where i felt like I could be in control and work towards achieving my goals. Thank you Edmond for helping me remember the version of me I strive to be!Christina T
Edmond has helped me establish multiple ways to approach the problems that have slowed me down from living a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Being involved in solving my own problems with Edmond is much more effective than blindly following the advice of a therapist.Willie L
Edmond has natural coaching abilities that have helped me to identify and achieve goals that are in alignment with my authentic self. He has a remarkable gift for tuning into underlying issues that are causing roadblocks, and he uses this insight to plan the best course of action. Edmond’s practice is rooted in compassion and a holistic approach that respects my mind’s practical wishes while uncovering my heart’s desires. Not only has Edmond helped me to craft effective action plans, but he has also guided me through a journey of self-exploration that has been empowering and healing.Laura J

Edmond has the uncanny ability to get to the core of what I really want even when I’m uncertain. As a coach he asks powerful and thought-provoking questions and helps keep me on track, organized, accountable and be a more resourceful version of me - which is exactly that I am looking for to take me to the next level.Charina C
