"I have been using the tools I learned from Brad. I now have the confidence to move forward, have those difficult conversations and know that I can get the results I desire. I am working on my delivery, but I am not so afraid of communicating anymore. Upon completion of the coaching, I feel like a baby bird encouraged to leave the nest having been nurtured along for months and am now taking flight, on my own. Thank you for all that you have done for my spouse and I. The opportunity to work with you has been a life changer and I feel full of gratitude and blessings. I am richer from the entire experience. I am am living in the "now", not worrying about the future or reminiscing about my past. When the student is ready, the teacher appears."

"Upon completion of the COPE program we were bless to be matched with Brad Hardie, for 6 months of couples coaching. The intensive week program set the foundation for transitioning and continuing the progression of newly acquired skills and implementation of tools via weekly coaching. Initially I was very apprehensive and somewhat closed, struggling to share and allowing myself to be vulnerable. Brad was able to easily and quickly establish a level of trust that made for a pleasant and welcoming experience. Brad is extremely professional and kind hearted, his demeanour always allowed for open and yet challenging conversations while maintaining tremendous respect for each individual throughout the process. It has been over a year since we met Brad via Skype, I continue to be grateful for the support, understanding and knowledge he has shared during our sessions. It is clear how caring and compassionate Brad is towards his clients as well as the dedication he has within his profession."

"My wife Kathryn and I entered into the coaching environment with our eyes wide open and with the expectation we would be exposed to various techniques and exercises as a couple. What we got was much more than that! We received an instant connection with Brad that continued to develop and deepen over the months we worked together. He was honest, genuine and truly cared for what Kathryn and I were experiencing each week. He was very flexible in that he adapted quickly to our needs which always helped us to manage better. In the end, we gained some great new skills that built upon the foundation we already had in place; he strengthened our relationship and we are both so appreciative."

"Thank you Brad for all of your help and support. We really couldn't have done it without you. Again, all the best to you in 2017!"

"There is no doubt in my mind that had we not been through COPE, we would not have been able to handle the barrage of problems that has flown our way! I would not have the courage to stand up for myself and ask for help. Prior to COPE I took actions or the lack of action from husband personally. I felt that I was a failure and that if I had been a better wife I could have helped my husband more. Through COPE and the very important Life Coaching after the program I have learned to open up, to not shut out the pain but embrace it, learn from it. Without that empowerment I was unable to feel love. Through the life coaching I learned to stay on track, to be accountable (both of us) and I now recognize that I am strong, but even superheroes need to retire their cape!"

"We have had Brad in twice delivering facilitations for our management team. The first was a Stress and Chaos Facilitation and the second was a Stress and Well-Being Facilitation. Both were well received and filled with lots of new learning that our team was able to incorporate immediately and gain benefit from. Brad has a great mannerism in his delivery and his energy made the facilitations enjoyable and fun. Thanks again!"

"My experience with Brad was incredibly worthwhile and valuable. His insight enabled me to examine my initial concerns in ways that I never considered and I was pleased with how he skillfully led me to identify matters that were related but unrealized. I left with so much more than what I expected. Thank you!"
Laura Leveque, Union Representative, Film & Television, Union of BC Performers
"Last year, I rekindled my passion as an artist. Not wanting to arrive at a dead end, I approached Brad to help me create a career from this new work. He enabled me to make decisions about my time and my worth that have transformed the way I interact in the world. In a very short time, this has led to a successful exhibit, a very favourable position and a new confidence in life."

"Brad came into my life at a time where everything seemed to be colliding professionally and personally. He gave me the tools and insight to make informed decisions, stay calm and keep faith in my abilities to move forward in all aspects of my life."
Bernard Sauve, General Manager, Eponymous
"My job is unpredictable and incredibly demanding. It is not uncommon for me to work long hours for days on end leaving me feeling too drained to enjoy a balanced life. Working with Brad I was able to set specific guidelines of importance and be more in control of my time, feeling at ease with a busy practice that is ever changing."
Patrice Latka BHSc RM, UBC Faculty of Medicine, Division of Midwifery
Because of my personal relationship with Brad, I believed that working with him in a business capacity would be a challenge. He had the ability to separate himself from anything personal and focus in on my needs as the client. As a result I have gained a greater sense of my work and its place in my life.
