For 16 years I have worked as a Personal Trainer helping people reach their fitness goals. My passion for health, fitness and a balanced life has naturally led me to Life Coaching and my commitment to help others lead their lives with purpose and fulfillment.
As a Professional Life Coach I will help you find areas in your life where you feel challenged and want to see movement and change.I believe you are the expert of your own life and have your own answers. My role as your coach is to help you find those answers, and look at different perspectives around them to find resonance: to live your life fully, honoring your values, and living with purpose and passion.
Like an athletic coach, I will be on the sidelines, watching and listening to you and your dilemmas, asking you questions, motivating, and empowering you to perform at your peak and reach your ultimate aspirations.
I will help you:
- find the areas where you feel "stuck",
- clarify your goals,
- understand what's holding you back, and
- find ways to live your life fully and with purpose.
I am a Certified through the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) and Member of the International Coaching Federation (ACC).
Please contact me for your complimentary session so that you can experience what I can offer you.

"Saying that Roya has changed my life would be an understatement. With only a few coaching session under our belt, she has managed to literally turn my life upside down. And in a (very) good way. She managed to pull me from what seemed to be a free fall descent to hell, to a life filled with endless opportunities and hope. I am proud to say that thanks to Roya I have managed to erase my deepest fears and I am now chasing my dreams. I never thought so much could come out of her uniquely designed sessions. Roya genuinely cares about her clients needs and on top of that is approachable, caring and most of all amazingly good at what she does. Anyone lucky enough to have Roya as their life coach should consider themselves lucky. I've seen a lot of different coaches out there, none of them compare to Roya. I couldn't thank her enough for everything she's done." February 2012Mark Leruste, Programme Advisor at INSEAD
"What works for me about Roya's coaching are her gracious attitude and what I call her "trigger point coaching." Roya asks key questions and provides perceptive insights that cut to the core of issues, and in a way that makes them easier to explore, too. As a result, it's faster and more fun to move forward." November 2011Joan M., Publisher/Creator/Executive Producer & Host - Green Connections Radio
"It's the first time I've worked with a life coach. Roya has gone the extra mile in being caring, proactive, directive and helping me set priorities.Karen Fawcett, Staff Contributor, ConsumerTraveler.com
To be honest, I was dubious about life coaches, but have come to value her making me focus on specific issues that are/were roadblocks in my future planning.
Roya doesn't waste time and is excellent about not letting me procrastinate.
In addition, being able to work with Roya via Skype is an enormous plus as I travel non-stop." October 2011
“I wasn't all that clear how life coaching could benefit me and I decided to try it for "fun". But Roya is such a respectful listener and she has such a warm and supportive personality: with her keen insights, her common sense and her optimistic approach to life, she helped me separate issues, clarify my priorities and feel comfortable about certain decisions. We all have moments when we need to weed out our path and a bit of help can make a difference! I recommend Roya highly.” March 2, 2011Alaleh Alamir, Artist, France
“Roya is an exceptional coach. She works with heart, clarity and unwavering commitment to her client's success. I have known Roya for over 10 years and have both experienced and witnessed her ability to support and challenge people to live fully. Her clients adore her and are appreciative of her support as they reach their goals. I recommend Roya without hesitation. You couldn't ask for a better person or coach.” January 17, 2011Marcia Feola, CPCC, MCC, Executive Coach
