I began to work with Christine while I was wrestling with some overwhelming decisions around family, love, and career. I felt completely stuck! Christine helped me to understand and untangle the heart of my issues and create a positive path forward. With a combination of humor, no-nonsense insight, and incredible compassion, she helped me find my way out of the darkness and into a life that I love. Thank you Christine! I can’t tell you how grateful I am!
Working with Christine Young transformed my life in a big way. She taught me how to dig deeper into the root of my issues and come up with concrete actions to deal with the core beliefs that were holding me back from achieving my goals. Christine has a gift for listening for the real source of the blocks, mirroring it back and then guiding you through bustin' through.
Christine’s approach to coaching is exactly what the modern women with big goals needs! Part business peer, part army coach (she’ll call you on your BS, in the nicest way imaginable) and part girlfriend. You know Christine is always on your side as she guides you in doing the tough work needed to meet your objectives. I’ve worked with Christine on and off for six years and in that time I’ve made important decisions about my career, my home, and my life. When I have new things to accomplish, I grab my coach and get to work.
Before working with Christine I was stuck in patterns of inaction and thoughts that were ruling my behavior. Plus, I wasn’t dreaming big enough! Christine got me focused and taking action around changes I wanted in my life. She got me to take an honest look at myself and my behavior around money and relationships. Whether she was encouraging me to get online and make a dating profile and go out on dates, make the improvements in my apartment I had so long been putting off, or keeping up my financial goals – she was all about personal accountability and responsibility. There’s no shame or guilt in the way she works. She also pointed out the ways I was keeping my head in the sand around money – an uncomfortable issue for me since my childhood. I was not willing to honestly look at what I had and how I was spending it, either out of fear, shame, or a refusal to “grow up” around money. What Christine is so good at is being a coach and cheerleader who can help you commit to making your actions match your words! I’d recommend Christine to anyone looking to grow into someone who is responsible for their actions and for anyone with a desire to live a fuller life and live up to their highest potential!
Before working with Christine, I undervalued the importance of my time and the degree of control I have in determining how it is spent, then I realized that my time is not only valuable, but mine (and mine alone) to dole out. I have watched myself steadily evolve from a mentally and emotionally exhausted people-pleaser, into a more empowered, present, and effective wife, businesswoman, daughter, sister, and friend. With every exercise, Christine has helped me to become more aware of my behavioral traits and the triggers that ignite them. This exploration in self-awareness, coupled with daily practices in saying “no”, has changed my life and relationships in material ways. No longer just “doing” – as I hammer through my To-Do list – but “being”. Being more present – being in the relationships and activities that bring me most joy and fulfillment – has given me a level of peace and space that I didn’t think I could find in a jam-packed schedule.
Christine Young has been instrumental in helping me identify and live the life of my dreams. She is the perfect balance of warm, sweet, smart, and that kick in the ass that you need! With her coaching, I have become a Ph.D., written a book, created Master’s level university courses, and am living a life that I have designed – along with creating my own talk show. Most importantly she has helped me realize that my dreams are within reach and I can achieve anything I put my mind to. Christine tells it like it is and sometimes it is stuff that is very hard to hear. But she finds a way to say what no one else will say – my great friends, awesome family, inner voice – while remaining supportive and not making me insanely angry. Then, we figure out how to turn it around together. In a nutshell, that honesty and focus are what makes this experience so remarkable.
It has truly been a great joy working with Christine for the last 10 months. I have experienced wonderful benefits such as a renewed clarity on a variety of issues that I was struggling with and a greater sense of stability and peace with where I am in my life now. Before working with Christine: I was in a very negative space mentally and emotionally because I had just finalized my divorce. I was also struggling with some personal relationships that were causing a lot of anxiety within me. In addition, I had been going to therapy but felt as if something was missing and I needed something deeper. I began to coach with Christine privately and it has been life changing ever since! She has helped me to re-define beliefs that weren’t healthy and to raise my sense of self-worth and self-love. As a result of these shifts, I have since been able to better navigate and stand taller through the issues that arise pertaining to my divorce and close friendships.
My experience with Christine has been extraordinary. She listens and knows how to get the answers you already have from deep inside you. Every session is a realization, and she won’t let me get lazy! She’s warm and strong, a perfect combo in my book! Christine has shown me how to be the person I’ve always aspired to be!
Before working with Christine, I was unclear on what I wanted and felt like I was stuck in a rut. Christine helped me clarify what I wanted in a career and we created a path to reach that goal. She helped build my confidence and realize I deserve to feel fulfilled by my choices- both professionally and personally. Since working with Christine, I left an unhealthy corporate position and earned my doctorate. Now, I am writing a book, teaching as an adjunct professor at several universities and leading in an organization where I feel valued. I am grateful for Christine’s compassion, her wisdom and her authenticity.
I’ve worked with numerous coaches before and I can say Christine is one of the best out there. Her style isn’t intimidating or confronting like others I’ve experienced. She is fun while still being firm. In fact, I feel so close to Christine like she’s my big sister keeping me in check but also an angel on my shoulder guiding me to fulfill my life dreams. I was scared to death of having children. When I got pregnant, Christine helped me design a beautiful life with my new daughter. I now couldn't imagine life without my little girl. Also, during and after the pregnancy I worked with Christine on my fitness and weight goals. Before I got pregnant I had been struggling to lose those last 10 pounds for years. With Christine's help, I designed my dream body and put together a doable plan to get there. With her help, I had a healthy pregnancy. And by the time my baby was 6 months old I was back into dresses and pants that I hadn't fit into in years!
I wasn’t really sure how I felt about life coaching, I only knew that I needed to make a crucial career change and I wanted to go about finding a new job differently than I had always done in the past. I researched life coaches for a while, uncertain if I even believed in the concept of life coaching. After my first call with Christine, she had gained my trust and my faith. I felt invigorated and hopeful for the first time in a very long while, and in those early sessions, I had a great sense of having a partner in this process. Christine had my back. She kept me on track with my goals in a way that I responded to. She creatively called me on my “stuff” and showed me how I could create change. Christine and I have been working together for almost a year now and the whole coaching process taught me so much about myself, how my family history fits into the puzzle that I am today, and I identified character traits that clearly weave through all aspects of my life. I see how much I accomplished and am so grateful Christine always has my back.
Christine is truly amazing! Over the years she has guided and supported me through major life changes - moves, relationships, health issues, and jobs. She has helped me put things in perspective, see my patterns and blocks, and take action. After working with her I'm tuned into my intuition and my actions are finally aligned with my goals. She really gets it and understands me. I highly recommend her as a coach! She's the best!
