Listen to Coach Eirini's client, Sally, discuss what she values most in Eirini's approach to life coaching -- her spirituality.
When I started working with Eirini, I seriously doubted whether I would be able to reach my goal, a creative project that I’ve been trying to finish for years, with no success. I felt hopeless and lost. Amazingly, after our first consultation, I immediately felt more hopeful, and in the coming weeks, my progress on my project accelerated and far exceeded my expectations. As the weeks passed, problems and difficulties that I couldn’t think my way out of for months dissolved easily, because she helped me see them in a different light. The best part is that, while working with Eirini, I never felt that she was giving her opinion or trying to tell me how to solve my problems. She just has a wonderful gift for drawing out a person’s own problem-solving abilities. And of course, her endless cheerfulness and positivity were just what I needed when I was feeling down and disgruntled. After a handful of sessions, I am amazed by my progress, and I can’t believe that I’m finally on the road to success! It would not have been possible without Eirini.

Eirini has helped me to return to my former self that had somehow disappeared. I reluctantly agreed to six weeks of coaching, assuming that I had to dive into dark places I did not want to visit. But, after the first session I began to realize that Eirini had a way of bringing out the good in me that had been hiding for many years. I was eventually able to release the untrue repetitive thoughts in my head, recognize them, and replace them with truth. I had been stuck and unable to move forward, I felt disconnected. That was a heavy feeling, which has now been lifted by her gentle approach and guidance, allowing me to take steps each week to move forward in life with gratitude and appreciation. Setting goals and planning things that bring happiness, joy, and fun back into my life is now possible. I can’t think of any reason or person who would not benefit from Eirini’s gracious, loving approach to coaching. I cannot thank her enough.

Heart surgery is sometimes what it takes to dig deeper and find out the self-made obstacles to one's dreams. Working with Eirini has been like opening a treasure box of ideas and ways to push past my fears and ambiguity. I’ve worked with many therapists on family dynamics, relationship problems, and troubling personality flaws and I have grown. Working with a Life Coach is different in that it is problem/solution focused. If you have a dream or a goal that is haunting you, may I recommend that you consider working with Eirini, a remarkable Life Coach! You may just reach that mountain top, yet!

Eirini has a unique gift of pulling out one's individual strengths and bringing out one's truth. She is by nature an encourager. She is direct and honest, yet compassionate, loving, and kind. She possesses the special ability to put a person at ease, which in turn, helped me become more vulnerable and open up without fear of being judged. She helped bring me from a level of frustration and despair to one of courage and strength. I learned from her that I do not have to let fear rule my life, but instead, have tools and wisdom within me and the power to make my own decisions and create a happy life. She helped me see the good in myself, believe in myself, and furthermore, take the necessary action to accomplish my goals and better my life. She defines the meaning of a true "coach". I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in making positive changes in their life.

Eirini has many qualities that make her a good life coach; she is wise, compassionate, and can use her own experience of personal transformation to help others.
I've known and worked with Eirini since 2012. While I was seeing my therapist, Eirini worked with me separately, helping to give me tools to move beyond the end of a marriage and the tragic death of my younger brother. During my most vulnerable times, she was tender and nurturing. She helped me to develop mindfulness and to realize that I could make better choices around my thoughts and actions.
Eirini has a special gift for being able to suggest visual images that helped me to grasp abstract ideas and to build my spiritual practice. She has a gentle and joyful spirit, but is also astute when it comes to pointing out stumbling blocks that can impede growth. I continue to benefit from her loving guidance.

As the Consulting Clinical Psychologist at Crestview Manor I became familiar with the work of Eirini Metaxas. Eirini made a real difference in quality of life for the 74 residents. As Director of Life Enrichment she revealed many facets, going above and beyond, even helping to bring some of the residents out of their shells.
In addition to her art activities and field trips, her meditation and discussion groups and anger management classes helped spur real change. Positive results for several residents were recorded in their clinical files by the Home’s nurses. Eirini is a natural change agent who has a keen understanding of human nature.

I have known Eirini for 18 years. I have watched her pour her heart into all of her endeavors…. making a difference and teaching her girl scouts, as their leader, to do the same; rescuing dogs and transforming them into therapy dogs that bring pleasure and a sense of calm to those with physical and mental illness; creating programs for the elderly that bring joy to their lives. Her heart is full of love and compassion. Her passion is to share that love with others as she guides them through the challenges of life…. she has done just that and has made a difference in the lives of many.

I have known Eirini for the last four years. She is a warm, friendly person with a deep desire to help people. Just hearing her voice gives me a sense of deep joy and an inner calmness. She has always reminded me to "slow down", to live and enjoy each present moment.
She has always been an attentive listener, willingly listening to my concerns without interruptions. Teaching me, through example, that it is important to be a good listener. Eirini has also suggested different visualizations that I have used and that have helped me in making some changes in my life. They have been a valuable tool for me. She is very supportive and has touched my life in a positive way.

I have been acquainted with Eirini for a little more than 5 years. In that time I have been inspired by, and totally respect her 'common sense' and compassionate approach to living. She is the person I call when I have a pressing problem and am seeking clarity and guidance. She oftentimes gives me input that I hadn't thought of. I find her to be accepting of life as it is, and finds good in all circumstances. Eirini has helped me immensely in helping me to reach a state of awareness and clarity, giving me inner peace and freedom with my decisions. She sincerely celebrates my joys also. I trust Eirini, and am very fond of her.

I have known Eirini Metaxas ever since she took one of my Healer’s Workshops a few years ago and she has been impressing me ever since with her beautiful, kind, loving and gentle spirit. Eirini has a remarkable way of sharing her unconditional presence, insight, and wisdom to guide people’s to life changing results. She is truly a gift to all who are fortunate enough to know her.
