What my clients say

Adair’s coaching has been transformative as I’ve navigated the challenging process of letting go of old identities and beliefs, especially as a boomer. She’s helped me become more self-aware, manage fears and anxieties, and understand the neuroscience behind it all. Adair’s approach stands out for its hands-on nature—she doesn’t just preach; she practices what she teaches. Her blend of heart-centered and cognitive techniques, coupled with curiosity and empathy, has led to significant improvements in my life.

“One-on-one coaching with Adair is like sitting down with a trusted friend for a heartfelt discussion. She shows up with compassion, honesty, love, as a non-judgemental listener, supportive and kind. She helped me to move past limiting beliefs once and for all, provided me with strategies for planning a course and helped me to find the truth about a personal struggle I was having. During our sessions I laughed, became teary eyed and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Adair has helped me to continue to be the best version of myself. She is a wise and genuine gift and I have so much gratitude for our time together.”

“Working with Adair was such a delight! She has such great insight and wisdom, and is able to share it in a lighthearted relatable way. She helped me work through some blocks and narrow down and focus my vision. Adair has such a gift and it was an absolutely pleasure to be coached by her. I would highly recommend her for entrepreneurs, visionaries and thought leaders who have ideas that they want to make happen in the world.”

​”As I reflect over my coaching experience with Adair, I’m blown away by my transformation. It’s like I came to her with foggy glasses on, and while I thought she would help me clear the fog, I actually gained a whole new pair of glasses instead! I came to her when I felt stuck in progressing with a particular business vision, yet lacking clarity on how to get there. Through our journey together, Adair greatly helped me gain clarity over my vision in a profound way where I changed my approach, mindset, and overall direction dramatically!””

​”Working with Adair was a life changing experience for me. She helped me to reach new heights in my business and to finally succeed at being gentle with myself. She is extremely relatable in her approach and has the ability to connect with her clients quickly. I started working with her last summer when I felt stuck in my personal life and business. I wasn’t able to align myself with my thoughts and goals. The tools she offered are tools I will hold on to forever.

​”Her subject matter expertise across various scientific and training disciplines are a powerhouse paired with her ability to personally connect. This combination allows a uniquely holistic approach I have not found elsewhere. For this reason, I recommend Adair even if you have worked with other coaches in the past.”

​”Working with Adair has been one of my life‘s greatest joys.  Doing the inner work of Conscious Leadership with Adair has helped me compress decades of learning into days!  Adair embodies what she teaches with a greater integrity than I have ever seen in this space- and it has been transformational for me to be part of!”

– Jen Duhlin

​”I came away from the Mastermind feeling incredibly inspired to continue the pursuit of personal growth and commitment to my goals. The importance of acting from my future self and taking bold risks was instilled in me there. As a result, I am more confident in myself than I have ever been. I will never forget the amazing connections I made there either. Your facilitation of the event kept us on track and allowed us to share openly. All of Adair’s efforts ensured the environment was collaborative, warm and full of positive energy. “

This is stress, even if you’ve normalized it…

  • … being irritable and short-tempered with loved ones because you’re stretched too thin and overwhelmed by responsibilities.
  • … feeling anxious and on edge because of financial pressures.
  • … constantly worrying about work deadlines and feeling like you can never disconnect or relax.
  • … lying awake at night ruminating on problems and struggling to fall asleep because your mind won’t shut off.
  • … constantly rushing from one thing to the next without breaks and feeling like there’s never enough time in the day to get everything done.
