"Brett is an absolutely brilliant facilitator and business coach. He coached our team in discovering how we could best join together to co-create the successful future of our Company. Brett helped us break through some old, safe patterns that we had developed that were preventing us from moving forward, both at a personal and team level. My favourite coaching phrase from Brett is “that’s an interesting story, and I don’t believe it!”"
- Janie Moore, Co-President, Saje Natural Wellness
"As a result of Brett’s coaching I now have a completely different attitude about my business. My stress has completely dissolved along with my slavery to lists. I’ve tapped into an unlimited source of energy and enthusiasm, and what’s more, I’m reaching my goals effortlessly. Instead of feeling exhausted, I wake up feeling excited in the knowledge that I’m moving closer to my vision for the business. It truly has been a remarkable transformation.
If you have personal or business goals, and are interested in achieving them with ease instead of with long, hard work, I highly recommend coaching with Brett. You won’t be disappointed."
- Abby Palmer, Owner/Founder, The Gardening Circle

"Your coaching, especially your reminders about making more significant commitments and then focusing on keeping them, has been invaluable in helping me change my life. I have more energy, I am happier and more motivated, I’m accomplishing my goals related to my business, and I feel great about acting more in alignment with my core values. Anyone could benefit from the care and attention that you give to people and your great listening and coaching skills. Thanks Brett!"
- Peter Slobin, Business Owner
"Brett has a rare talent to truly and deeply listen, which allows him to help me uncover blind spots that I would never have spotted on my own. He is also a master strategist ... his linear left brain can map out an action plan in a heartbeat, while his right brain visualizes brilliant creative solutions. Confusion transforms to clarity almost instantly. It's an extraordinary results-oriented combination. But what places him in a class of his own, in my humble opinion, is that I have never felt so profoundly heard as I do with Brett. What a gift."
- Christine Awram, Founder, The Woman Of Worth (WOW) Conference
"I found Brett to be a most intuitive and insightful coach. Regardless of the situation, challenge or negotiation I brought to the session, Brett was unwavering in his commitment to deliver a concrete plan and complete with an action that felt both easy and inspired. If you are looking for a coach whose focus and attention can be felt at every level of your being, then calling Brett is a great first step."
- Beth Hanishewski, Coach, Writer, Speaker
"In a world of Life Coaches of whom I have been skeptical, I was guided to see Brett Lloyd and have recently had a session with him. The results were remarkable. His methodology is so compassionate, gentle and wise. I felt comfortable and safe as I 'journeyed' thru my 'stuff' toward my goal. Brett was able to gently guide me down a pathway to completeness all the while leading with his soothing voice until I came through. He also stayed with me firmly, not letting me go, so to speak, until I reached that 'aahhaa' moment. I am grateful to have his wisdom in my world."
- Rachel C., White Rock
