Carolina Oliva, Entrepreneur
“I came to Laura at a cross-section in my life. My goal was to explore the possibilities of what life offered. Uncertain of how to proceed, I turned to Laura for guidance. Quite simply, since our first meeting, life has never really been the same. I owe a great deal of gratitude to Laura for her patience, compassion, and willingness to care for me. Her coaching has had a direct impact on how I live my life – and, the quality of my well-being. I’m blessed to know her.
Matt Tashjian, Senior Vice President, Investments, Merrill Lynch
We began our work together about 10 months ago, and I wanted to thank you for the lovely blend of wisdom, sensitivity, and order you brought to my life. I was on a multi-year skid. Despite a long history of delivering award-winning work on time and on budget, my sales efforts were being rebuffed at the entry level of TV networks and cable operators. My career, and my spirit were in a rut. All motion, no progress. Frustrated. Angry. Disappointed.
I needed help. Artists have mentors, musicians have master classes, athletes have trainers, but it seemed that business people were always in competition with one another. Then, I discovered coaching, and the opportunity to engage a smart, experienced person who had only my success as their goal. In you, I found a balanced approach to the blend of practical and spiritual components that needed restoration. An excellent fusion of The Greek, The Buddha, The Christ & an MBA – all put into an understandable, western vernacular….My concerns have shifted from why can’t I get work?” to how am I going to manage all of the work that’s coming in?”
Thank you Laura. You helped me first regain the fun and beauty of living a rich, interesting life. You are a smart friend and good council.”
Brett Darken, President, North Star Films
“A little over a year ago I was in a state of befuddlement. I was in a dead end job and didn’t know what I wanted to do. I found Laura on the internet, and shortly after our four telephone sessions, my world was turned upside down by changes that led to me happily starting my own interior design business. Today, despite the economy, and with the continual aid of spiritual exercises that Laura taught me, I have enough work to keep me busy, and also have time to pursue my side business as an artist. Laura helped open the spiritual and creative channels that led me to definitively knowing what I want, and how to pursue that. Having Laura as a coach was instrumental in my present success, and working with her was a delight! I would highly recommend her to anyone who would is in need of holistic guidance.”
Janis Luedke, Interior Designer
“Laura has been incredible to work with. In just a short time, my life has begun to change in so many areas…career, relationships, creativity, goals, recreation, etc. I’ve learned more about myself in the past 3 months than I did in the previous 10 years. I highly recommend her to everyone.”- Cris, comedian/actor, Georgia.
“Laura, you Coach and ‘train’ in a really fine balance. I got much more throughout our work together than I had expected! You were a kind of ‘voice of inspired reason’ for me. Your feedback was exceptional and I ‘grabbed’ hold of every bit of it as if they were gems coming through the phone line. You are fearless in your coaching.
Seeing our twelve sessions in overview, I feel more solid inside, I feel enriched. I feel the better for having had you as my coach. I have clearer direction and more willingness and joy in going those directions. Actually, in relation to your coaching Laura, I have clearly experienced real accelerated change.
Absolutely excellent coaching!”
Diane Penketh, Life Coach, New Zealand
“When I called Laura for an initial consultation – I was miserable and working in an office job that I hated , in an industry I hated and had become depressed, angry and frustrated . I had no idea what to do, how to get out of the situation I was in and how to move forward towards my dream of working overseas in the entertainment industry.
Though my dream seemed far fetched and a million miles away, I committed to work with Laura for 6 months. During that time she helped me step outside of my comfort zone, find my core values, set goals according to those and focus on the end result.
7 months later I was working overseas and had my own television show which made international headlines. It was a complete shock for me to achieve such a huge goal so quickly. Working with Laura has taught me that anything I can envision and dream – I can accomplish. The tools that she has given to me and her guidance have proved to be invaluable to reaching and achieving my goals.
I am currently working with her to set and achieve my next set of goals and have no doubt that I will achieve anything I set out to do with her guidance.”
– C. Callahan
“Laura is a very loving and intuitively brilliant personality. With her guidance we were able to accomplish everything that needed to be accomplished, exceeding my expectations. She has an intuitive flexibility and an undeniable intelligence. Laura is also a very warm person. Even though we have never met before, I felt I was speaking to a close friend whom I have known for a long time. In truth my greatest highlight of the week was making that call to Laura. I am very grateful for her insight. I have come a long way on my journey and I have come to a better place that I have never known before.”
Sargent John R. Singer
“I work in a high-pressure political environment and constantly felt overwhelmed and dissatisfied, but at the same time there was no other career I wanted more. That was a constant struggle that left me depressed and angry. What Laura helped me do was change my attitude instead of my job. With her assistance, I was finally able to revise my expectations of what my job was supposed to be in my life. As a result of this dramatic shift, I am happier and more successful at work than I have been in my 20-year career. I honestly never thought I could be this content at work – I will be forever grateful to Laura for her skillful guidance and insights.”
Ashley, Public Affairs Vice President
“Laura has a unique combination of intellect and intuition. Combined with her natural empathy and extensive spiritual training, she has discerned things happening in my life that I was unable to recognize myself, and offer practical solutions that were immediately helpful.”
Kurt Feuer, Attorney
“Laura’s insights and coaching have been extraordinarily helpful to me…. Her guidance, particularly as it relates to complicated business relationships, has been instrumental in helping me recognize which relationships are worth developing and which need to be terminated. If you want help staying on – or getting on course – Laura Svolos is the person to help you do it. “
Rob Sullivan, Author, Getting Your Foot in the Door When You Don’t Have a Leg to Stand On (McGraw-Hill).
“Working with Laura was always the highlight of my week. She takes a very holistic and practical approach to her coaching. She was terrific at helping me identify areas that needed improvement including physical, emotional, spiritual, professional and personal. She would outline specific action steps to address each of those areas and if something wasn’t working for me, she was able to offer alternatives until we found the right solution for me. She always had other resources to recommend that supplemented the work we did together. She is very intuitive, and I learned so much from her wisdom. “
Nancy, Human Resources Executive
“Laura is perceptive, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She identifies problems quickly and leads you to your own answers with skill and compassion. Laura’s integrity and intuition is outstanding. I highly recommend her.”
Donna B., Occupational Therapist
“Coaching exceeded my expectations—I never dreamed I would find a spiritual mentor in this process. I feel calmer (less desperate, less frantic) about the ups and downs of my energy and motivation—more accepting of the divine aspects of my limits. I am less frightened than I was before coaching. Laura is wonderful!!! I miss her!”
Dr. Rebecca Burns-Hoffman
“I liked the balance of practical, real world” advice with the esoteric assignments like mantras and affirmations. I was always disappointed to get off the phone, because I loved hearing Laura’s confidence and knowingness. I hope to work with her again.”
Chad Nielson, Marketing Executive
“When I contacted Laura, I hoped to find someone who would help me get organized and hold me accountable for some changes until I became more disciplined. I achieved the discipline but in an unexpected way. Laura taught me how to love and accept myself and all the other things became very easy. I have accomplished so many things with Laura’s teachings, I went from never working out to working out 4 times a week in yoga classes and with a personal trainer. I have reached my financial goals by sorting through the chaos and taking charge of my finances, and my spiritual life is on fire right now because Laura taught me invaluable lessons about awareness! I feel empowered in a way I never knew was possible. I have also been experiencing a joy in ways I never knew was possible. I plan to work with Laura again in the near future! “
Maryann, Atlanta, GA
“Laura is fantastic. She cuts to the root of what is holding you back but in a very gentle, spiritual, and yet scientifically rational way.”
David Angel Rodriguez, photographer, screenwriter.
“Having a coach has been a blessing in my life. Before I decided to get a coach I felt like I was lost and trying to find a sense of direction in my life. Laura has helped me to identify what I really want to do in my life and has helped me to begin to take the steps to get there. I still have a long way to go, but, now I feel that I have goals and I am moving in the right direction. I am so thankful that I found Laura who has given me hope and encouragement since the first time we spoke with each other. For this I will be eternally grateful.”
Debbie, Rhode Island
How are you? I hope everything else is well with you… I was just writing to give you an update. I made the move to DC a few weeks ago… Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you again for all you helped to open me up to. By understanding how energy works in my life, I feel so empowered to create the life I’ve always wanted…and that’s exactly what I’m doing! I’m amazed by it everyday…
So, again Laura, thank you, thank you, thank you. I know I wouldn’t be in this place in my life right now if I hadn’t done the work I did with you. I wish you all of the best and many blessings.”
