"Working with Diane helped me to recognize and develop my own tools for the direction I want my Life to take. She helped me to see that when I trust my own Self, miracles can happen every day."

"I think everyone
needs a personal coach to hash things out with. I had questions
about Trademarking and Diane helped me focus my thoughts about
Then, Diane suggested
I give some thought to my goals and long range planning.
Usually I don't go beyond today or this week, at the longest!
With raising 5 kids, I found out everything can change in a heartbeat.
Long range planning...what's that?? So now I'm wiser
and know I need to practice my goals and practice who I want to
This stretched things
beyond my [business idea] to include my weight loss efforts which
is ever before me. Next thing I knew, Diane had connected
my new business with my goals of weight loss. The key word
became the "traveling" in my business name, which honors the flowing
and movement in my life and in all I do. This movement being
needed for the weight loss and yet showing me the need to bring
"health" to my clients in food as well as in spirit.
This was really an awesome thought for me.
Finally we talked about
setting boundaries, business hours and carving out time when I
tell others "no". All these years, I've been so available
to everyone, that I need to reclaim some time to be in my new
office and concentrate on my new focus. I have so much to
ponder and to put into operation from this wonderful time with
Diane. I am ready to move on!
Thanks for all your time and offering yourself to the Queendom.
I am truly blessed and in awe that we were able to connect."

"As the winner of
a “Motivational Counseling” session, I didn't know exactly what
to expect. Diane sent me some questions to answer ahead
of time, so that she would know me better for our session.
The questions themselves were designed to get me thinking about
things so deep that I was actually nervous answering – but there
is a magic, a truth to putting something in writing. Putting
a statement down in written words makes it very real.
When we first spoke,
she wanted me to be relaxed and open for our talk. She
asked questions that made me reflect on matters, such as who I
really am, and what I want to be. She draws out
your perspective on issues and tries to show you a different,
lighter angle; a new refreshing way to process your concerns.
She ended up our session with an idea for me to work on,
and a faxed list of personalized words, called a “word-shower.”
This experience was a wonderful tool for future journal
writing and meditation, and something I would recommend to anyone
to try at least once. After all, what do you have to lose,
except old dysfunctional habits and negative thoughts?"
"I have been blessed
with a wonderful coach and friend, Diane Armstrong. She saw my
dream and helped me to get to this point in my business, Healing

inspiring. You can’t help but feel good and want to tackle

Owner & Director,
Thank you so much for traveling all the way to Portland to share the light of your heart with all of us. Your workshop was truly inspiring, healing, and heart-expanding . . . and so much fun!!!!! I felt like a carefree kid again—holding the entire world in my hands with no limits but my imagination. And that’s exactly how life should be! Thank you, thank you for all that you are and all that you give!

"Sychcronicity! My most significant insight was how a focus on what I want helps create the outcome. I look forward to my ability to impact my destiny. I like the way Diane brings her gifts to each member of the class. Her communication skills allow the mesage to come through to every 'wave length'. She meets us where we are at.

"My most significant insight was the 98% of life is fine and I can stop dweling on the 2% that's not. I look forward to taking control of my time and not allow other to use my time. I also have dropped the guilt about making myself happy before all others. Diane is gentle and brings out topics from within the person. I like how I'm using 'I feel' and not worrying about 'solving' other people's problems. I've learned to let go."

I was writing about
the inner house of my mind yesterday and the image of it is still
clear in my mind today. Now after the call this morning I'm 'seeing'
new doors opening up to some of the rooms in my imagination, especially
the 'music room'. Wait and see what happens when I actually start
reorganizing my physical house!
And this is a bit of
synchronicity - I started reading a fantasy novel last night called
'A Red Heart of Memories' by Nina Kiriki Hoffman in which one
of the main characters literally talks to man-made things around
her and they talk back.....It seems to dovetail completely with
what you said about the energies of our possessions.
This is just the tip of the iceberg!"

want to thank you for following your heart and becoming a life
coach. I never knew there was such a thing! It is unbelievable
(it is synchronistic) that I was at such a pivotal place on the
very day I met you.
. It has only been three weeks
and a day and I have already noticed a big difference in myself
and in my family. The stress seems to have melted away. I know
I was stressed because I was trying to be someone other than who
I am meant to be.
There are so many things I want to experience. I feel energized
and excited about the future and I really have no huge plans.
I'm confident that if I follow the path that feels right, everything
will fall into place in my life, and the lives of those I love,
will have more meaning."

most valuable thing I learned was to make decisions from my heart
- stop being so cerebral and analytical. I also want to embrace
the changes I make, they are all good and I can make any change
I want at any time. I can have multiple irons in the fire.
I would like to increase my productivity in my down time and be
more charitable while having fun."

too far ahead.
I will try and make a conscious effort to do one small gesture
everyday to work on my creativity. I always seem to put it last
when I get caught up in the whirlwind of life."
