Working with Pat has been an amazing life changing experience for me. We worked together during a very challenging time in my life. Her coaching style was caring, gentle, focused, direct and insightful. When I was stuck, she asked questions that helped me work through and move forward. My life has been forever changed because of being coached by Pat. I have discovered much about myself, grown as a person and have many tools to use in living daily life.
Pat’s coaching motivated me to push open some windows to my soul that had been closed for a long time. As I practiced dreaming, envisioning, planning and acting on my conclusions, the fresh air rolled in. My horizons have been widened and I have connected to new resources and perspectives that have enriched my life.
People cross our paths in different seasons of life. During a very stressful career transition someone suggested I contact Pat. From the first conversation, I knew she was a coach who would help me gain a different perspective about my situation and begin to discover the next steps. I appreciate her insights and ability to empower me to move forward with confidence and a stronger sense of myself and my core values.
I never thought I would need a life coach at this middle-aged stage of my life, but you have helped me realize how much more I have to give — a giving that has and continues to enrich my life. While there were times I pushed back and wanted to revert into my old hyperactive self, you helped me see that balancing God, marriage, work, exercise and “me alone” time actually enrich who I am and those around me. I loved it that you never judged and that you encouraged me to do those “bucket list” things that I thought were beyond the age clock.
As someone who has spent my entire adult life teaching and mentoring others, I wasn’t sure what to expect from being coached. What a pleasant surprise to find that so many of my life experiences had come full circle, and that in exploring my options with Pat Snyder,I could actually begin to envision living my dream. Pat made it possible with her gift of leading and not pushing, just guiding me to think in a different perspective. Most of all, it was empowering to find, like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, all those hopes and dreams were there all along. All I had to do was release my inner power to make it happen. Thank you, Pat for turning a light on so I could see that!
