Coaching With The Heart In Mind

Life & Leadership Coaching & Training

Develop Your Self Leadership Skills through coaching and training to manage your thoughts, emotions & energy better, while cultivating inner balance and resilience, so you can be a positive & powerful influence on those you love and lead.

Way too many people are experiencing increasingly toxic levels of chronic stress in their lives – and that was before the pandemic. From work, money & health issues to relationship and family issues, stressors are being stacked one on top of another and not letting up.

These are stressors we’re acutely aware of but there’s also the hidden stress taking a toll on us of not meeting our fundamental human needs in optimal ways. Such as, not having a sense of purpose & meaning in life, or not being true to ourselves and suppressing our feelings, or not managing our inner worlds (emotions, thought patterns, stress levels) nearly well enough through effective inner/self leadership.

As a consequence, more and more people are experiencing anxiety, overwhelm, burnout and depression than ever before, leading to a cascade of negative effects such as physical illnesses, dis-ease and disruption in our lives, families, and communities.

No one ever taught us the strategies and skills to manage our selves and our stress responses effectively, or how to build psychological and emotional resilience, or how to appreciate and fulfill all our human needs in more effective ways, or even simply how to experience fulfillment.

And we just keep going and going on the same path with no end, losing hope, optimism, and vitality by the day. Is any of this familiar to you?

There is reason to hope, so please keep reading and exploring this site to learn how we can use our hearts (real and figurative) to cultivate more Presence, Wisdom & Love so we can be our best selves and make the most out of life!

Stacked Stressors

When stressors pile up one on top of another and aren’t resolved, they drain more and more of your energy and resilience each day.

Incessant Inner Chatter

It’s completely normal for the mind to churn incessantly (it loves to think) but we need to learn how to manage the quality of our thoughts because they in turn affect how we feel & behave.

Poor Self Regulation

Without cultivating our ability to self regulate (calm, inner balance), we fall victim to emotional & physiological patterns of our past and are effectively impaired.

Trying to Stop or Avoid Stress?

Many people are looking for solutions outside themselves – ways to stop the stressors or control how they feel by changing jobs, ending relationships, controlling other people, avoiding certain people or situations, even avoiding themselves.

Many turn to other ways to alter their experiences and change how they feel – say with a bottle of wine each night or a few joints (not that there’s anything inherently wrong with wine or pot or mind-altering substances in general).

Others bury themselves in their work, or exercise, or do something else they believe is the right thing to do but for a variety of reasons that you’ll come to understand, it’s not helping them feel better or live better.

Really, who wouldn’t love to be unaffected by stress? At peace more often? Grounded, calm and balanced? We’d also love to be fearless, passionate, filled with purpose, clarity, happiness & vitality too. But nothing will stop our minds from churning incessantly or help us end the negative effects of stress until we start prioritizing our own self care and how we manage our inner worlds.

How Will Coaching & Training Help?

HeartRich Coaching Toronto provides you with strategies, tools & techniques to manage your mind, emotions & energy more effectively, so you can alleviate needless suffering & handle stress more optimally. Thereby, increasing your resilience, enhancing your wellbeing, improving your performance and productivity and, enriching your experience of life.

Through coaching, you clarify and prioritize your core values, so you can better guide the direction of life, identify and remove the blocks to taking the actions that will make a difference, and build the resilience to live courageously and authentically, all of which support you in creating a rich, meaningful & fulfilling life.

We’re not saying that this ends stress or anxiety or depression. But you can build your resilience by learning better inner or self leadership skills. These skills will help you manage your stress better by managing your mind & thoughts & emotions more effectively so that they don’t stop you from being the person you want to be or hold you back from serving your unique purpose in the world.

In the process of becoming who you really are, and finding all the ways you can fulfill your potential, you will cultivate more hope, optimism, positivity and wellbeing, which also has a nice by-product – it reduces overall anxiety and the negative effects of stress, and has a positive effect on those around you.

What Does The Heart Actually Have to Do With It?

Our hearts are even more powerful than we ever imagined.

As a Certified HeartMath Coach & Mentor, we use the physical heart in our self-regulation practices to generate a state of inner balance and ease, to help us build resilience, and to improve our overall physical & psychological well-being.

A key concept and capacity here is called Coherence. A psycho-physiological (mind/body) state of optimal functioning – where your body’s systems are in harmony and balance leading to benefits like: clarity, focus, inner ease and balance, energetic flow, creativity, intuition and more.

We use the figurative heart to connect to our personal or spiritual core, to tap into who we really are, the true self, so we can cultivate the love, motivation, strength and courage to create a life rich with meaning and authenticity and be a Heart-Rich Presence to ourselves and those we love and lead.

What People Are Saying

“Through our meaningful sessions, I’ve gained a greater understanding of my own purpose and the things I need to be doing in order to live my life to its highest potential. Guy has the ability to make sense of his clients’ needs and struggles in ways that address the root problems and reasoning for why those inhibiting feelings might be there in the first place – And by simply doing/practicing that, those negative feelings start to dissipate, with a sense of inner satisfaction gained in the end.”
Javan, Toronto

“Whether on the phone or in person, Guy always creates a positive and non-judgemental environment to discuss any topic. I truly appreciate that he knows when to challenge and hold me accountable or when I just need to talk and “vent”. His approach is very personalized and he’s one of these persons whose positive impact in your life cannot be forgotten…”
Saskia, Montreal

“Over the last few months, I’ve worked with Guy to develop healthy coping strategies for dealing with life’s up and downs. It has been a big help. I’m currently going through a job transition, and instead of panicking, I’m reacting calmly and thoughtfully. I think my most significant change has been to stop being overwhelmed by worrisome thoughts to focus instead on appreciating each moment and on being thankful for the people and activities that bring me joy. Thanks, Guy! ”
Blair, Richmond Hill

“Guy, you have been a major sign-post in my life. You walked me through some of the most profound exercises that helped me discover not only what I want and where I need to go, but who I really am. Thank you for helping me uncover the roadblocks — the biggest being fear — that were getting in the way of my most authentic path. … I’m so grateful for all that you’ve taught me. You are a kind, compassionate and gifted coach and I hope that many others have the opportunity to change their lives for the better by working with you.”
Tanya, Waterloo
