Relationship + Organizational Coaching Testimonials:

“The coaching we never knew we needed!

My fiancee and I started coaching with Cynthia almost 6 months ago and it has been one of the best experiences for both our business and personal relationship. As a couple who own and operate a business alongside each other all day, it can sometimes be hard to take a step back to discuss and evaluate both relationships. Cynthia has been exceptional in not only guiding topics for each of our coaching sessions, but also creating a safe space to share our thoughts, goals, stresses, and fears whilst asking those deep dive questions in response. We highly recommend Cynthia to those looking to find more clarity and direction in any / all aspects of life.”
Alyce Sparling (co-owner of F45 franchise)

Today I am better able to budget my time appropriately, find the right solutions to use at the right moment, and have been able to grow my business steadily. I continue to work with Cynthia to help keep me on track and stay inspired as an entrepreneur. Cynthia has given me great insight into myself in business and how to maximize my strengths.”

“As a new graduate, I have had the privilege of Dr. Chan’s mentorship for a over a year. Her clinical knowledge, business savvy skills, years of experience in both associateship and ownership sets her apart from other mentors I have had in the past. Especially as a new grad, I found difficulty in carving a path in my new career — I was your #1 ambitious scatter brain! However, with Dr. Chan’s sessions, she was able to help me organize my thoughts, focus on my priorities and take me to my goals step by step. Even with hiccups along the way, she was always there to answer my questions, settle my anxious mind, and find attainable solutions to every problem. She is not only the best mentor, but she has become a very close friend!”
Dr. Tiffany Lai, D.C. (1997 CMCC graduate)

I think the life coaching with Cynthia was most valuable to discover a new way of thinking that I haven’t thought of and coming up with a game plan to move forward with some accountability.”
Dr. Marc Jakobs, D.C. (Coaching Client, Chiropractor)

“I enjoyed Cynthia’s ability to focus on a topic and to be able to identify different topics that arise and categorize them. I appreciate the questions and the reflections. There is an enlightenment to seeing the same challenges differently when asked in question form or as a challenge.”
Dr. Elisa Santiago, ND  (Life Coaching Client, Naturopath)

 

“I met Dr. Chan in 2014 when starting my yoga studio. Dr. Chan provided business consulting and information on marketing, operations, and accounting that was invaluable! She made everything so accessible and clear. She is one of the most efficient and organized people I know. On a personal level, Dr. Chan has helped me clarify my purpose and passion in life and has been there to support me every step of the way. I am so grateful to have her in my life!”
Jessica Henry (Toronto Yoga teacher and Studio Manager)

Workshop + Retreat Testimonials:

“Cynthia and Lana’s workshop was a perfect mix of providing practical tools while reflecting and looking inward.  A beautiful combination for growth. Thank you!”
Victoria Bergin

“I really enjoyed the workshop on “What Is My Next Step?”. Cynthia and Lana were both very supportive & enabled me to move forward towards my future endeavours.”
Carol Laine

“What Is My Next Step facilitators Cynthia and Lana provided an engaging, safe and fun environment in which to work. They worked on developing measurable next steps for both a business and life plan – with an awareness of mind & body. Starting and ending each class with breathing and stretching activities made for a relaxing and enjoyable 4 weeks.” 
Maureen K.

“Practicing Energy Mapping immediately made me consciously value my time in a way that I could not wrap my head around previously. As opposed to running myself ragged and coping with all the emotions that came along with that, such as guilt for not being super human, I all of a sudden could realistically and respectfully schedule ‘nap’ with complete justification. Visualization is huge and by thinking of my energy as a currency that can be charted and graphed and thus spent wisely has made for a better day-to-day.”
Shaun McComb

“Energy Mapping ™  with Dr Cynthia Chan helped me to step back and take a look at how I can better use my energy and my time to work more effectively. As my practice was growing and the pace of work was getting busier and busier, I was unable to find a way to do this on my own. I’m more organized and I have clearer boundaries around work-life balance.”
Dr. Nicki Marksteiner

“Cynthia shared her thoughtful methods for getting a clear picture of our fixed responsibilities. She gave us outlines to help us block time/energy to focus on our priorities. We worked on a long term (6 month) and then short term (1week) view. We were also encouraged to anticipate upcoming commitments and curve balls, mapping out how to conserve energy for what is most important to us. We discussed the value of noting patterns of energy including seasonal effects.”
Vanessa Huizinga

“I really enjoyed the Energy Mapping workshop. Cynthia is a thoughtful and knowledgeable coach, and I appreciate that she spent time exploring each of the group members unique life circumstances and challenges.”
Jason McKenzie

“Cynthia’s workshop allowed me to create structure and efficiency in my unconventional life. As an actor, my days don’t look like everybody else’s. There is a lot that I want to be doing and feel like I should be doing and it felt like I was trying to shove all of those things in everyday and never giving any of them my full attention. By mapping out my days, weeks and coming months I am now able to focus on one thing at a time and accomplish more without the anxiety.”
