Teri coached me when, after a long marriage that ended in divorce, I was starting to think about dating. With 30 years since my last date, I thought I needed help! Teri brought such depth of insight, brilliance and care to our engagement. She asked questions and offered a new vantage point that I’ve not experienced anywhere else. Because of my work with Teri, I’m very comfortable now about this new phase of my life.
If you’re looking for a professional, credentialed coach who helps you achieve your goals, I highly recommend Teri Ashley. Teri’s straightforward non-judgmental style creates a safe environment for honest reflection and exploration of your strengths and areas for potential growth. A great coach is a must if you want to move your life forward mindfully and with purpose. Teri Ashley can help you do just that.
Teri knows how to listen deeply and draw forward what is most essential. Her approach is both holistic, looking at the large view, and specific, asking questions that open the way through or into the situation at hand. Teri’s enthusiasm, wisdom, understanding heart and patience combine to make her an excellent coach.
Coaching with Teri was extremely helpful! I was in a relationship for over a year and we both agreed to move forward with ProActive Partnership Retreats. My intent was for it to enhance the relationship but to my surprise it helped to identify that I was in the wrong relationship which helped me to move on. Although we still have a friendly relationship, I am often reminded how very fortunate I was to discover this unsuitability. I continued looking for the right relationship using many of her coaching guidelines and I “happened” upon a wonderful match more than a year ago! Because of the value of Teri’s earlier coaching, we are looking forward to beginning retreats soon. This time I am confident it will build on what we have already successfully started. Thanks Teri!
Teri’s class “86K: Mindfulness in Action” has given me a much broader view of mindfulness. I now have strategies to weave meaning and intention into everyday actions and a group of like-minded people to support me. This course provides powerful and impactful tools that enhance daily living.
Each session spent with Teri Ashley was extremely fulfilling. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about sharing tools that supporting clients’ growth and goals. Teri also applies the work she does to her personal life. She is extremely easy to talk to. She is very kind and supportive and genuinely interested/concerned in the progress I made. Her coaching style is down to earth and easy to understand.
I am grateful to Teri Ashley for expertly guiding my life partner and me through 15 Proactive Partnership Retreats over the past 5 years. (We began in our 60’s!) Our practice of Partnership Retreat became a dedicated time and space apart, devoted to us, an essential renewal of our mutual choice to be in relationship. We learned remedial tools of communication that have increased the atmosphere of sustained intimacy between us, lessening stressful and hurtful habits. Learning how to craft mutual agreements has been key in our growth as a couple. A tremendous gift has been the ritual of focusing our visions and goals, individually and together: setting intentions and following through. Agreements are powerful! Having our Retreat time is returning to a safe, intimate atmosphere – or crucible – where hearts soften, minds focus, where hearts can be healed, agreements forged, milestones and accomplishments celebrated and commitment in love renewed. I have personally grown in my ability to express what I feel, observe, want and envision with truthfulness AND kindness. I experience less stress and impatience and more trust, confidence in and love for myself and us.
