"Gifted teachers go beyond the material of their curriculum to inspire their students. Victoria is one of these teachers."
Visual artist, Victoria B.C.
"Vicky is a very focused and determined teacher. She really finds what it is you need to work on the most and finds a way to help you. Her life coaching skills and vocal teachings are equally as valuable. With her lessons you also get her kind and caring heart which makes you feel like a better person every time you leave her studio. I recommend her highly. I've worked with numerous teachers and she is by far the best."
"I was always so afraid of failing I was told not to sing loud but just "mouth it". I was frightened of singing and being heard. I would sing in the car and places where nobody could hear me. I have taken several singing classes in the past but nobody helped me to restore confidence in myself like Vicky did. The fact that I know that I can sing has given me inner strength and a whole new way of looking at life. I am looking forward to continue my singing lessons with her since I know I have just discovered a little of the wonder of singing. Annerose (Vancouver)
Testimonial for artist-centred life coaching:
Victoria is a wonderfully intelligent and intuitive listener. I found her to have deep understanding of the human condition, especially as it pertains to an artist. After our hour-long phone calls, she sent e-mails that captured the main points of the conversations, and included more information about resources and methods for me to discover and work with on my own.
Victoria offered an extraordinary cache of resources and tools for addressing both my professional and personal concerns and challenges. I found her to be extremely well-read and knowledgeable of various types of healing methodologies, many of those relating directly to artists. She was able to fire off excellent suggestions of resources for reading, listening, meditating and experimenting with new ways of thinking and processing life experiences. I found these resources to be truly relevant to my needs and my situation.
Suggestion: Offer a way to continue the relationship over a longer period of time? Maybe on a less intensive basis?
I found the coaching to be immensely helpful, because of the support and understanding I received. I have made life changes, as a result. I found in Victoria a professional who believed in my passion and gave credence to the work I want to do. Prior to my relationship with her, I was not revealing my unconventional ideas for my work, because I was too unsure of myself. Through the months working with her, I actually managed to launch my project. It feels great! I would recommend Victoria, without the first hesitation, to any artist who needs help in finding direction, clarity and courage.
