Possibility is everywhere.

Even when you can’t see it, I hold the space for you so that when you’re ready, you see it too. My name is Janette Valentino and I’m a certified, professional Life Coach.

Change isn’t something to fear. Why not use it to create the life you want?

There is nothing in you that needs to be fixed. All the hurts, wounds, challenges are just information. What will you choose to do with this information?

Everything is a choice. My job is to support you in making conscious choices so you create the life you want and relish the living of it.

I found the work with Janette extremely worthwhile. I very much appreciated how she set everything up and put a framework around the process. Reflecting each week in this structured way was really great and gave me a great deal. What I appreciated most was Janette’s ability to take a fuzzy thought or idea of mine and summarize it concisely and precisely. She also showed me or made it more clear for me what the benefits were with some of my patterns and behaviors. There were also a few times when I was being very hard on myself and she helped me see alternatives to this, which helped me move forward in the way I wanted.

Janette’s support during a huge transition in my life has been invaluable! Thank you! Your presence is calming, intelligent, and supportive with a huge dose of enthusiasm!

Janette’s last newsletter about SPACE – was so compelling that I had to write. Amazing that the words she wrote mirrored the words I needed to hear – have you ever had that happen? You know, when the ‘thing’ you are struggling with or resisting or confused about – happens to be talked about on the newsletter or in the quote from the day or something like that………. Janette is truly gifted with the support she gives, the questions she asks, and how she holds the ‘space’ for you to move and grow and become MORE THAN JUST FINE!! Thank you Janette for your beautiful soul!

Janette guided me through a challenging time of transition and work overload. When I came to her I had started a new business but was still tied to my other two businesses. She helped me sort out the reasons why I should continue with one business over the other and a way to run both businesses without feeling run over! I have used her techniques to keep me motivated and excited about my working life and also tools to avoid or halt stress and burn out.

Going through the coaching process with Janette has made my values very clear, so that I am able to focus on the things that make me happiest. She has helped me learn a new set of tools to deal with my day-to-day problems, and has helped me re-shape my long-term goals. As a result of these things and some other changes I’ve made, I am on my way to a new career, and a more fulfilling daily life. The coaching process has been great.

I have had personal coaching and done a workshop with Janette. She is amazing and very passionate about her work and great at what she does. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting some change in their life and not knowing how to go about it .She is full of ideas and a great listener and great at encouragement.

Janette is sooo good at Life Coaching. I attended a fun workshop with Janette and found she brings such a calming influence to the chaos that sometime surrounds my life. Just a brief session with Janette brought about many changes in my life. She is easy to talk to and listens to it all; she then can wade through the unproductive stuff to find what really needs attention.

Janette cultivates a space that allows me to explore uncharted aspects of myself. She skillfully blends humor, ease, compassion and playfulness allowing for a profound opportunity to integrate and formulate new ways of being. I have been able to re-orient my “operating system” to include more grace and ease in every aspect of my life. Coaching with Janette is so much more than action steps to meet goals, it is an opportunity to play a whole new, beautiful game of Life.

I have lived a life of transitions myself, moving from one place to the next, making connections, exploring and learning. What threw me for a loop was suddenly being in a very static situation. Suddenly finding myself 10 years in the same city and country and working for the same company, being married and a mom of two. My life is full, but am I happy? Am I currently functioning to my full capability? How do I reconnect with that spontaneous, freeflowing person I was for so long. I was lucky enough to have connected deeply with Janette and have greatly benefited from our coaching relationship. She has this marvelous ability to lead me through my thoughts in a very enlightening way. She truly is my traveling companion.

From the moment I heard Janette speak I knew I wanted her to be my coach. She radiates warmth, honesty, acceptance and encouragement. I chose to spend most of my sessions around the challenges I was experiencing as a mom. My coaching experience was life altering! Janette created a safe space for me to discuss insecurities and feelings that I had been holding, but had never shared before. She helped me gain new perspectives about myself, my children and my future. I now live in the moment and find joy and humor in the most unique places. I am so grateful for my experience and have many new tools to be a much happier, confident and care free parent!
