CHOOSING A COACH?
Read what my clients think it’s like to work with me
I met Nancy in February 2020 at a weekend retreat in Iowa City; it was literally life changing. I decided to take the leap and work with Nancy one on one in February of 2021. it was just what I needed to breakthrough the ceiling it seemed I had hit. Even though I had been working with and studying the law of attraction since 2012 and made great strides, there was still something keeping me from leveling up in my career and personal life. I also had been to traditional counseling, which was helpful but only up to a point.
Nancy combines law of attraction, inner child work, spirituality, business coaching, relationship coaching, and positive habit-forming practices to provide what mentees need on an individual basis. She is nurturing, affirming, and authentic. She asks the hard questions but is gentle when you aren’t quite ready to answer them yet. In the 15 months I worked with Nancy, my confidence has soared, my business has prospered, and my relationships have improved. I feel more at peace and happier in general, and I am better equipped to handle the inevitable less comfortable feelings that come up, a side effect of being a human being. I’m pursuing my heart’s desires without offering any apologies to anyone. I’ve learned that I’m enough just the way I am, that I have a voice and things to say and express, and how to stand behind that voice. Even though my 1:1 work with Nancy is complete for now, my work is not complete, as this type of growth and development is a lifelong process that requires regular practice, but I feel confident that Nancy has provided me the necessary tools to continue my journey and that she will be there should I ever need a refresher. I highly recommend Nancy Swisher’s 1:1 mentoring program.
I was drawn to attend Nancy’s ‘Find Your Voice Retreat’ in July of 2019, something deep inside me knew I had to be there. The retreat was an amazing experience and it felt so good to meet other women who like me had come to realise that somehow or other we had all been silenced.
The retreat gave me a taster of how Nancy worked and I liked it a lot! Thought provoking content and practical tools all delivered with great humour and compassion. I then made the decision to work with Nancy in her 1:1 Mentorship. Since then, I scarcely recognise myself. I am able to speak my truth without tying myself in knots, or worrying I might upset others. There is far less internal resistance to me speaking up for myself. I can do it naturally and with grace. I trust myself so much more than before. I am tuned into a deep inner knowing which on occasion prompts me to be quite bold. Sometimes I almost have to stop myself and say “did I just do (or say) that?”
Often with this kind of work the individual doesn’t always see the progress that is being made. But in my work with Nancy, I can clearly see the advances I have made. I recognise myself as a woman who stands up for herself, stands up for others, embraces her talent for creative language, expresses her emotions in full, speaks to strangers, helps strangers, sets boundaries, is eloquent, communes with nature, attracts an audience, shares her gifts, sings in the shower, tunes into her intuitive voice; and I don’t doubt there is more to come.
In saying ‘yes’ to all the above I am saying ‘no’ to silence, fear and shame.” Oh, and my childhood dream of writing a book has resurfaced with Nancy’s gentle encouragement.
I am starting to recognize the unlimited power of the work we are doing. It’s literally alchemy. But it’s like alchemy that would astound even most alchemists! I feel the strength of my voice; I see the sheer beauty of my being, inside and out, and I feel the unlimited worldly and spiritual success coming towards me, that it actually is already in me. My gratitude is almost ineffable!
Nancy has helped me to transform my life, from finding my voice, to shining a light on my subconscious fears and beliefs, to helping me realize and connect to the source of all that I am. To say I am grateful is beyond words. Her gentle, always supportive and illuminating insights makes her a most gifted and wonderful guide for anyone seeking to find and express themselves at their highest being. I cannot recommend her enough.
Since completing the Find Your Voice Program, I am stronger, more sure of myself and know that my decisions will always be good when made from my heart. I really get that my voice matters. I am able to understand how I was silenced and how I have also felt the collective of all women’s silences; that heaviness of not being me that was so hard to pinpoint. Now, I have a new rich foundation of my Voice—my deep Self. It talks to me, guides me, protects me. This foundation holds me and tells me I matter. I am now free. I am capable; there are no chains I cannot overcome. The foundation that carries me is attached to the vertical plane of my Spirit — there is always nourishment there for the actualization of my heart’s desires.
Since participating in Nancy’s Find Your Voice Program, a miracle has occurred — I’ve transformed my consciousness from feeling like a victim of what was happening around me to being an advocate and taking up the space I need; I’ve stopped suppressing my true expression and found my voice; I’ve moved from resignation to being the co-creator of my experience… A massive shift!
If you want to know who you are and what your purpose is here on earth —in the present moment— sign up for Nancy’s Find Your Voice Program!
It is hard to put into words the immense impact Nancy’s “Find your Voice” program has had in my life. I started the program after the end of a difficult relationship with no sense of who I was besides my painful stories and my loss. I felt silenced and discounted. Through my work with Nancy, I was able to identify how my silencing occurred and the impact it had on the trajectory of my life. By identifying and dismantling the painful stories that led me to lose my voice, I was able to reclaim the parts of me I had lost. Nancy intuitively knew when to push me to dig a little deeper and when to simply hold space for me.
Today, I am a strong and confident woman in touch with my own voice and wisdom. I can clearly identify what is in my highest good and what no longer serves me. Before meeting Nancy, I had been working with a mentoring group. Working one on one with Nancy in her Find your Voice Program, I had the breakthroughs I was unable to reach in one year of working with a group. In the relatively short time working with Nancy, I have come to live my life from a deeply conscious place, in alignment with my life purpose, connected to my inherent joy and deep understanding of my own voice and wisdom. It has been the best investment in my growth both personally and professionally I have ever made.
I have had the delight to work with Nancy over the last year. As a coach she has been my spiritual guide supporting and keeping me focused on my journey for deeper connection to my inner wisdom and truth. She listens deeply to my innermost thoughts and asks just the right questions to surface my hidden fears and true desires. This has helped me connect more deeply with and own my inner wisdom and feminine energy. As a result I am experiencing more joy, vitality and spirit in my life. In addition in my business I am aligning to and attracting more meaningful work connected to my heart desires.
I was drawn to Nancy as a spiritual mentor as this resonated with me at a deep level. What started out as a quest to overcome blockages along my own coaching journey transpired to be a far more challenging and enlightening path of self-discovery. Who am I? What are my true desires? How can I serve humanity? Our work helps me to step back and observe myself, my circumstances and recognise conditioned behavioural patterns and self-destructive tendencies and to transform those. This, in turn, is opening up my own path as a coach.
Nancy creates a safe space to explore who you are and how to tap in to your innate feminine wisdom. This was a real milestone for me because when I’m tuned in to my intuition I stand in my own power and make positive choices and take decisive action. Whilst I have always understood on an intellectual level that we manifest our lives, I never really lived it. I am now learning to trust my journey, my inner sense of what is right and have faith in the outcome whatever that may be. This way of living brings about a huge sense of relief and inner peace. It takes time to cultivate and requires daily practise but it is truly transformational. Coaching with Nancy has supported me in my work, relationships and has reconnected me to a higher purpose in life. It has reaffirmed what I have always known inside but chose to ignore!
If you can imagine a vibrant, tuned-in, tech-savvy, modern-day wise woman, you have a good read on the kind of person Nancy is! Nancy’s upbeat spirit and lighthearted personality make even the difficult aspects of growth and transformation engaging and memorable. She is one of the most accepting and open people I have the pleasure of knowing. Through my late twenties and early thirties, I have worked with Nancy in person, over the phone, and via Skype for her guidance in transforming everything from habits of negative thinking to romantic relationships to speaking up with clarity and compassion. Nancy has a gift for seeing into the heart and soul of a person, and helping you to see the love and the joy that you already are (whether you see it yet or not). Seeing this about yourself helps you along the path of a transformative and fulfilling life. My own life has transformed in ways I could not have imagined before working with her.
One of the most important things that Nancy has shown me is about how much choice we have as human beings, and how our choices help us create our lives and shape our paths through life. With Nancy as a caring, compassionate, humorous, and sometimes butt-kicking mentor, I have learned to look at old habits of thinking, learn from them when that is necessary, and then let them go in favor of a new way of being, usually after both crying and laughing. I have learned about what it means to have a heart’s desire, and how that is different from being hooked on something. Nancy has shown me how heart’s desire is our most powerful guide and vital ally for living a fulfilled and fulfilling life.
If you are a young woman who is committed to the path of transformation, and is interested in the support of someone who has been there, done that, Nancy is an excellent mentor and guide for your journey!
I started working with Nancy when I found myself at the end of a sticky break-up. I thought, at the time, we would have a couple of sessions to see me through this one period of grief and then I would move on, back to normal. But the sessions just kept opening up these tremendous gateways in my life that I had never before explored. She showed me how to align myself with my true nature and how to tap into my own power. The person I am today is so much kinder, confident and more powerful than I ever could have envisioned and things keep improving all the time! Under the support of Nancy, I have done so much more than deal with a break up. I have moved countries, experienced healthy romances, completely shifted professions, created an authentic lifestyle, and the greatest gift of all, I have started building a loving relationship with my distant father. I can’t believe this is my life! Nancy’s work has supported me in becoming a strong, loving, feminine, version of ME and I am eternally grateful.
When I sought help from Nancy, I was struggling to build my own therapy and coaching business especially advertising was very difficult for me. I needed help with overcoming my fear of being visible and speaking up for myself. At the beginning I was stuck in old beliefs and patterns from my past. However, I am glad I decided to work with Nancy because now I am feeling more confident to be out there advertising my services and speaking my truth. I am more open in general and believing in myself and standing behind my voice. Nancy helped me to uncover my fear and showed me a way of being present with myself and to follow my next steps. I really enjoyed working with Nancy as I could feel she was standing behind me all the way. Therefore, I recommend coaching with Nancy if you do feel stuck in fulfilling a dream in your work or life. I am grateful for our work together as now I can give it back to my own clients.
