Praise from Clients
“I have known Elaine for many years, but it was summer 2020 when I first started working with her as her client. Before I started this work with her, I was a mixed bag of emotions—I suddenly was working from home as a PE teacher, and I had just taken a huge leadership role in my wine business. I was confused, I was curious, I was exhausted. I just didn’t know where I was going next. Our conversations helped me find my way again. I’m now more focused, and I have much more clarity. I always end our conversations with such excitement, eagerness, and the energy to make things happen!”

“I requested Elaine’s life coaching services after my children moved out on their own, and my marriage of 28 years ended. I was in a period of great self-doubt and financial insecurity. I felt like I was alone and lost at sea in a small boat without a rudder or sail. Elaine’s intuitive, life-affirming guidance and wisdom, her unconditional, generous support, and the practical tools she provided me with have helped me tremendously. I am now more capably managing my income, and I have developed a new sense of direction, purpose, and faith in myself. Elaine has a gift of igniting hope, inspiration, and positive action. I wholeheartedly recommend her for anyone who needs help navigating their way in a direction of growth.”
I am Angela Watkins and VP of Operations for a developer. I have had the pleasure of knowing Elaine for the past 13 years and have had the opportunity of working with her the last 3 years. It has been wonderful to have someone to trust that I can talk with. Elaine will give ideas on how I can change my mind-set or tips on how to deal with certain situations. Since I have been working with Elaine my self-confidence has grown tremendously. She has been able to help me see my worth and has given me the tools and taught me techniques to be my best self.

“Before I began working with Elaine, I thought I was in good shape. But when Elaine and I started working together, I realized I was living in a mediocre state of health, thinking that it was optimal. Really, I was just off base one.
In our work, Elaine approached me with insightful compassion. I felt that when she looked at me with those warm yet deeply searching eyes, that she was very aware of what I needed. It wasn’t that she was pushing something onto me or that she had something to sell me or “teach me.” It was more that she became a companion to me as I discovered what I needed to do to be more nurturing and loving to myself. Through her gentle and non-judgmental approach, I began to realize what wellbeing really felt like. I have become more aware of what I put into and onto my body and how it makes me feel. I’ve
deepened my understanding of how and why I need to nurture myself.
Since my time with Elaine, I have had more physical energy. I have a deep “inner wellness.” There has been more joy and a feeling of vitality in my life. I began to make more wholesome choices. As I became more embedded in who I was and what my dreams and goals were as a woman, my relationships and family and work-life became
more fulfilling. It was a life-changer.”

“I am so proud and incredibly lucky to have Elaine on my team! Elaine helped me to move “from chaos to clarity and fun” in many areas of my life. I needed emotional support to end a toxic relationship that was holding me back from excelling in other areas of my life and I needed business coaching to get me to start taking action and doing what I said I was going to do! I can’t thank Elaine enough for her generous gifts of wisdom and time. Our relationship continues
to this day and I have no doubt it will for years and years to come.”

“Elaine’s coaching helped me to make nutritional changes that resulted in my losing weight, which in turn helped me to “feel better about myself” and be less judgmental. I learned that I have been my own worst critic…and I learned how to make better choices. Elaine did not simply hand me answers to my angst on a silver platter. What she did was better! Elaine offered me a different view. The results of my training with Elaine Copeland have led me to recognize my talents, to congratulate myself, to reach out to others in a different way.
I don’t try to “control” everything anymore; I let life “play out” as it will. I clean the house less and enjoy life more.”
“I worked with Elaine Grace Copeland during a very turbulent time in my life. My sessions with her always left me feeling confident and ready to take the next step in my life with business and family. I find myself using the tools I learned from Elaine regularly. I try to be very conscious of my language, realizing how powerful our words can be. I am so happy that I gave myself the gift of my time with Elaine.”

“My time with Elaine has changed my life and has had a major impact on my family. I wanted to change my diet and lifestyle before I met Elaine. But working with her and having her point me in the right direction has helped me actually start walking the path to good health. I appreciate Elaine’s honesty. She gave me glimpses of who she is outside of work while always remaining professional. I have thoroughly enjoyed our time together.”
“I would like to express my gratitude to the commitment and energy Elaine puts into her personal coaching with me. I have benefited greatly from my time with Elaine. Her dynamic energy inspires me. I believe 100% that a personal coach should be one who has experienced challenges and addressed them. Elaine’s sharing her personal journey as part of who she is as a coach has helped me achieve my own personal best. She has encouraged me to look more closely at my thoughts, beliefs, and routines. Elaine is a good listener who has helped me find a different outlook on life. I have bounds more energy and I know the tools she has given me will continue to change the rest of my life going forward, especially regarding nutrition and exercise.”
“Energy. Professionalism. Depth and breadth of knowledge and resources. That rare ability to listen and get to the heart of the matter. After a coaching session with Elaine, I feel re-energized, re-focused, and renewed. Elaine is a caring and gifted coach. I feel so fortunate to have her as my coach, and I would recommend her highly to you.”
“Elaine gave me amazing tools that I continue to use in my life. I now have the confidence to do what I know in my heart is right for me without all of the self-doubts.”

“I’ve learned so much from Elaine. She taught me to enjoy each moment, to take little joys from life. The things I took for granted – including my body and personal time – are now treated with more kindness and care.”
“I began seeing Elaine to support my new role as an Administrator of a Charter School in Flagstaff, Arizona. I recently graduated with my Masters in Educational Leadership/Principal K-!2 and stepping into a role having limited leadership experience. My confidence level in my performance was low. Since working with Elaine, I feel like a confident, strong, powerful woman in my profession. Elaine helped me find my voice, my confidence, my strength, and my courage to be a confident female leader of an amazing school.”
