“Being able to interact freely is one of Amina’s talents! There are no judgments, forcing of her beliefs or telling you what to do as she explains the journey is mine not hers! Amina always has information available for every situation we have discussed so I find I am growing as a person and expanding my knowledge along the way. Amina is an exceptional person and Life Coach!!

"Amina Hedayat is an engaging and informative facilitator. Not only did she spend time helping us understand ourselves, but she also gave us essential tools to manage our thought process and emotions to the best of our abilities. I especially loved practicing how to walk confidently. The things I have learned in the confidence workshop can definitely be applied in my workplace as well. I'm constantly collaborating with partners and other co-workers so I found the technics that she taught about thinking of situations to be very beneficial."

“I count the weeks that I’ve spent together with Amina incredibly valuable. My professional life had been rocked to the core and I found myself in a place I have never been before both mentally and in my career. I greatly appreciated how Amina was able to isolate different struggles and help me work through them one by one. I was able to slowly digest what was currently happening and what I wanted for my future. The greatest lesson seemed to be the simplest yet it was the hardest for me, and that was simply re-writing my inner monologue so that I could win. Even just sitting down and listing my strengths so that I could articulate them, was pivotal in the path to healing. The decision matrix was also a key tool for me. There were so many decisions and ideas and thoughts running through my mind it helped me logically and strategically order my priorities so that I can move in the right direction with my career. Amina was the right person at the right time in one of the shakiest moments of my career. I greatly appreciate the time that Amina spent with me and would highly recommend her to anyone that needs some self-discovery and/or direction in their current situation. Thanks again, you are the best!”
