Joan A. Weston SCPC, CGPC
Executive & Life Coach
The Coaching Approach

Joan A. Weston SCPC, CGPC
Senior Certified Power Coach®

Victoria, BC, Canada
Tel: (250) 595-5609

I had been working as a research fellow at the University College of London while completing my Ph.D. in Art History, and trying to set up a life and career over there. Various stresses and economic realities had plummeted me into deep depression, fear, and anxiety, and my isolation had triggered some post-traumatic stress that I hadnt even been aware I harbored.

Almost immediately, Joan started to work with me in an intuitively gifted, deeply compassionate, highly professional way, calling on her comprehensive repertoire of coaching skills. One by one, the post-trauma symptoms and patterns collapsed, and the learned, suicidal thoughts Id battled since childhood completely disappeared. It seemed that Joan always chose the exactly right process to release the charges, triggers, and emotions attached to difficult episodes from my past.

Her immense sensitivity equips her to divine her clients greatest good and safely, surely guide them toward it. I discovered the roots of many limiting beliefs, behaviors, and patterns. Very, very gently, Joan guided me back to a state of health, love, trust, and confidence. I am now finishing my Ph.D., have a top London academic publisher interested in the results, and am assured of the likelihood of a post-doctoral fellowship or lecturing position in the near future. I am ensconced in a loving relationship for the first time in many years, and am grateful for, and profoundly enjoying, my life. I owe that life to Joan, my coach, mentor, and friend. I give eternal thanks for her pure heart, generous grace, great skill, and noble spirit." Yvonne Owens, Marie Curie Ph.D. Fellow

"I must say what Joan does is amazingly different than what I had experienced before. This was the missing link as to why after 20 years of personal growth work I still had blocks.

I recommend Joan because I saw and felt results immediately. My business is now taking off. She delivers with such love and compassion that it warms my heart whenever I think of her."

Thank you Joan, Barbara Miller, BMP Productions Founder

"Joan's coaching has helped me face fears that hindered me so much, that stood in the way of my personal and business success. Working with her enabled me to reflect on my warts and fears and use them to guide not impede me, and I have begun to live the life I only dreamed of, travel, my own successful business. I achieved more in one session with Joan than I had in years of being in a therapist's chair." C. McGuire, Realtor

"Thank you for everything you've done for me, but most importantly thank you for awakening the Divine in me." Love, Tyler, Student of Life
