I work with young adults to raise self-esteem, self-confidence, and motivation. LifeCoachInToronto
Ivana Pejakovic, B.Sc., MA, "Toronto Life Coach" works with teens, young adults, and parents as they make their journey in life. Teens and young adults face a challenge in trying to figure out who they are and where they belong. These uncertainties coupled with the distractions everywhere make it is easy for youth to accidentally or intentionally step off the road to self-discovery only to end up feeling disoriented, confused, inadequate, and unhappy.
“Teens are a very special part of our society. They are our tomorrow! Today, it is up to us to inspire them to be all that they can be!” ~ Ivana Pejakovic

Ivana provided our group with an inspiring presentation, completely catered towards the needs of our youth and where they are at. Thanks Ivana for your support and encouragement of our youth as they aspire to attain their goals.
My family always told me it would be good for me to see a life coach or anyone that could help me with my personal issues other than them. For a long time I thought it would be useless because I thought I figured things out enough by myself. I did understood a lot about myself already and my family is very helpful but being coached by a professional life coach like Ivana is something else. You get to understand yourself and your issues even more, you learn techniques (ways of thinking and feeling) to fight your demons, you get support and you get to talk about things you can't always talk about with other people. Because Ivana is still young, I was not sure if she would have enough experience to help me but I was wrong. She knows what she's doing and provides facts about the human psychology and behavior that are very interesting and helpful, she cares about you and she makes you feel safe. For me it is hard to trust people when it has to do with my weaknesses but with Ivana I was able to talk about many things I barely share. The three sessions have passed by fast but even though it was short it helped my life getting better. Ivana is not a magician, what she gives you is your responsibility to use it in everyday life. She shows you the way but you're the one who takes it. I still have a long way to go but Ivana definitively made it easier for me.
As a family our experience with Ivana has been very rewarding. Ivana has brought focus and clarity to our family. She has given each of us so much feedback, tools, and new ways to think and perceive what is right in front of us. Ours girls (ages 12 & 14) have grown so much in a few short months. They understand Ivana's role in helping them to be responsible, thoughtful and respectful (of themselves and others). She has helped to guide them in their thought process and teach them how to make good decisions for themselves using the gifts that they each have.
As our girls worked weekly with Ivana they got to know themselves better, what is special about each of them as well as what they value, what their goals are and what they need to do to achieve them. Ivana accepted each of our daughters for who they are, using only encouragement and giving them a push when they needed it. Don't think that Ivana does all the work, they are expected to put time and thought into the sessions as well and from this true progress is made.
I have found each of our daughters to have a greater understanding and appreciation of themselves and what our values are as a family. We are grateful to Ivana and would not hesitate to recommend her services. She is caring, knowledgeable and has proven to be very dedicated and resourceful.
I think you did a great job with the girls. They were a tough group when you were here and I think you handled them very well. You covered a lot of stuff in a short period of time that they will be able to take with them and think about in their futures. I will be doing a Time Management work shop next week and plan to incorporate what you covered and giving them your handout. All things considered I think you did a fantastic job with the girls. Thank you again for coming out. I will keep you on my contact list for future workshops in my career and I hope Urban Arts will do the same. All the best to you.
Before I came to see Ivana I was for lack of a better word a mess. My obsessive-compulsive behavior stopped me from breaking my comfortable daily routine and trying new things. I had no self-esteem and didn’t think very highly of myself, and was afraid to try something new because I felt inadequate or wouldn’t want to take a risk of failing and being ridiculed. By working with Ivana I was given the tools to overcome my troubling obstacles. She showed me ways of improving my self-esteem and understanding that by breaking routine new opportunities present themselves. Even though I have finished the program I’m still using and following the different methods and strategies taught by Ivana, and have found them to be a great success. I would highly recommend the program considering it has helped me a great deal.
Working with Ivana was a wonderful experience from beginning to end! I was at a very low point when I decided to sign up for self-esteem life coaching and felt very discouraged. Through our conversations and various reflection exercises I was able to see my negative thought patterns and recognize where I needed to change. After our 3 sessions my life had changed. I was able to land a new job, had more confidence in myself and my came to terms with some of the issues from my past. Ivana is an excellent listener, understanding, observative and insightful. I highly recommend her services.
My daughter is well adjusted and easy going but seemed to lack initiative and drive. With high school graduation on the horizon we had concerns about her future success so we contacted Ivana. We consider the sessions a valuable investment.
Ivana is a very organized and thorough professional with remarkable insight into the heart and mind of a teen. I believe my daughter will be better equipped to handle a wide range of decisions, including those clouded by peer pressure.
As parents, we do the best we can and, frankly, I think they tire of listening to us. I thought another perspective, another voice, would be good but was thrilled to realize Ivana could offer much more.
Besides the structure of a well planned program and solid new skills, we have a deeper understanding of the sort of obstacles that can be overcome.
I highly recommend Ivana's services and continue to enjoy and pass along links to her blog.
Determined to break through the block she had been experiencing from recent years, and a setback due to a health issue, Ivana diligently challenged her belief system one-by-one rebuilding it with her own set of values. Giving her the self-confidence and boost in self esteem she needed to pursue her dream of helping teenagers and young adults overcome the obstacles and challenges stopping them from reaching their dreams.
Her understanding of emotional intelligence stacked on top of her values, determination and life ambitions plus her Masters Degree in Social Psychology makes her an incredible asset and invaluable life coach.
