Testimonials

“Charles Benz has been a most helpful coach and counselor in dealing with issues of deep negative beliefs so I could mold new positive values about myself. He has a comprehensive psychological approach that involves delving into the complexity and uniqueness of an individual’s personality. He assigns homework between sessions that involve introspection and meditation. He demonstrates the proper way to meditate and to soothe oneself. I have found Mr. Benz most helpful in dealing with deep and long-term issues that have held me back from positive life growth.”

“Charles explained the coaching process and in every session asked questions that allowed me to become more enlightened concerning my career and personal life. He did not try to give me solutions but instead led me toward paths that were right for me. Due to the shortened time frame we have moved quickly and Charles was still able to adjust the discussions according to my progress. He has done an excellent job.”

“I am in gratitude for having this coaching experience. Prior to having the coaching, I was more pessimistic. But since there was always follow through each week regarding being more positive and what actions can be taken it was easier to focus.

“I saw how Charles utilized the coaching tools that proved to be effective to me. It was a turning point for my life. I recognize and acknowledge Charles for trusting me and not just feeding me with advice. I had a lot of self discovery and for this I am forever grateful to my coach and the whole coaching process.”

“Charles did amazing things to get me to think ‘outside the box’ to help me recognize the existence of several thought patterns and paradigms in my psyche that I did not know existed in my life: personal and professional. Some are good, some are bad, and some are indifferent, but ALL of them tend to place artificial constraints on the options I see when deciding how to act or what to do. Charles then aided me in replacing those thought patterns and paradigms with alternatives that I learned to practice quickly. The difference is like night and day!”

“Coaching with Chas has made a huge difference in my life. I\’ve gained traction in doing the things I want, focus about what those things are, and confidence in going and getting them, including two job offers! By helping me examine and replace old, untrue, and negative beliefs about myself and life with ones based in reality and possibility, I am now confident that I can achieve what I had hoped, and am now actually in the process of getting! The progress has been clear and palpable. Thanks Chas!”
