What clients say

“After many years in business and management I felt that it was time for a change but I was not quite sure what that should look like. I was looking for someone to talk to with whom I could connect on a deeper level to find true meaning. I found Jesse. In our first talks he came across as relaxed, open and friendly. What I found really special is that Jesse was available for me without judgement and was able to ask the right questions that made for a deeper connection without shying away from being frank. That gave me an experience and level of clarity that I rarely experienced before and made it possible to have a fresh look on the situation. From that connection we were able to get to the core of some of my limiting convictions and carve out my true values in life. This helped me to get from a business role to a coaching role in just a few months and made a significant shift possible in other parts of my life. I feel like I’m able to act more in accordance with my true life’s values which gives me a greater sense of being and focus. 

In short I am grateful to know Jesse as he brings warmth and clarity to the relationship that triggers the right kind of energy to evolve.”
