"REFLECTIONS" Life Coaching
"WOW! is the only way to describe the intense and soul tingling feeling that I felt after sharing with Velma.  The surreal energy that has evolved from me and my subject matter is something that I have prayed for in the past, and after speaking with Velma about it, well let’s just say, a fresh spring day in the middle of December can not hold a candle to it.  Getting in touch with yourself, which is something that Velma inspires, is something that everyone should make themselves experience.  You will be amazed at what you already know about yourself, but just need to have the right reflection to see it!  Honest, no-judging commitment from Velma is what you get - awesome!"

"Velma, I wanted to thank you for the transformational sessions we’ve had! You really helped guide me in the direction that I always knew was best for me, but didn’t know how to get there by myself. Your compassion and powerful questions gifted me with the tools to get back on track. Your talent and essence that you shared with me has been remarkable and I am forever grateful. I wholeheartedly would recommend you to anyone seeking clarity, a safe sanctuary and meaningful life changing results! I thank you for the personal empowerment you’ve given me to make the decisions that are best for me."

"Since our coaching sessions, I learned that is was okay to actually talk about myself and tell my dreams to someone. I learned that it's much easier to speak of myself in a positive way when I have someone who really cares about me. It made me feel like I could conquer the whole world. I really looked forward to each of my coaching sessions with Velma to discuss "me"!

"Velma is a soul-filled and spirit-filled coach who shines her light on people around her. I met Velma in a classroom and was immediately drawn to her radiant light. As coach, Velma has the gift to listen deeply and hear what lies beneath my words and reflect what is at the core of my heart.  This incredible journey-adventure-partnership with Velma, a gifted and skilled coach, gave me the inspiration, clarity, and tools to change my life and take the risk (I kept putting off ) to go for my dreams! Working with Velma is life changing, inspiring and fun! Everyone should be so lucky to have Velma as their coach. I am deeply grateful and honored. Thanks coach for reflecting the light and believing in me."

"I was pleased with my experience of having Velma Tarver as my Business and Personal Development coach. She was extremely helpful in getting me to move more successfully toward achieving my goals, especially in areas where I was “stuck”. Her warm, caring and professional spirit made the process non-threatening and fun. Since working with her I have taken on an exciting new career path, motherhood!

TESTIMONIALS

"This coaching experience has been a true eye opener
for me in all areas of my life. I now feel good about
myself and treat myself without feeling guilty or
selfish. I learned through this experience that in
order to help or take care of someone else, I must
first take care of myself. This entails cleaning out those closets that I wanted to ignore and never open again. Velma helped me in realizing the things that I've always known to be true about myself. She challenged me to a new way of thinking, never giving me the answers and allowing the space for me to go deep within. She asked the
"To begin with, I wasn't sure if I wanted to pursue life coaching, but decided to give it a try. Starting out I was a little shy about what to say or how to express myself. However, since my
3 - month commitment with Velma, I have stepped out of fear and become more courageous about what I want for my life. I've become more responsible for myself and my son and have the freedom to just be "happy."
