Client Testimonials

Bonnie was instrumental in helping me develop new skills, understand myself better and the importance of the self in all that I undertake. She has empowered me to use tools and approaches that ultimately facilitated the setting of goals and intentions that are aligned with my core values, desires and needs. Through a gentle approach over a five month period, Bonnie provided guidance, ongoing support, raised pertinent and timely questions that enabled me to reach clarity, take concrete actions and make incremental steps towards my ultimate goals. I am thankful for Bonnie’s patience, wisdom and supportive nature and will cherish this journey and what I have learned from it for years to come. With immense gratitude, Rébecca  St-A., Ottawa (2018 / 2019)


Under the coaching leadership of Bonnie St. Julien I was challenged to explore my opinions regarding the nature of my personal interactions with others. Bonnie was professional in guiding me through this experience in such a way that I recognized the adjustments and changes needed to improve my interactions. Once my goals for improvement were established Bonnie was able to provide tips and techniques that have and continue to assist me towards reaching these goals.  Bonnie always provided support and demonstrated professionalism and in addition we were able to build a professional rapport. Overall it was a very positive experience for me.                                 Karen Freake, CPA, CA, Partner, McCay Duff LLP, Chartered Professional Accountants, Ottawa (2016)


Investing in our management cadre and developing the leadership competencies of the next generation leaders is a purposeful action taken by high performing organizations.  Increasing complexity in Public Service Operations is driving a greater need for training in a landscape defined by decreasing training budgets.  Maximizing results for every training dollar invested is a foundational principle for successful training strategies. 

To meet this challenge, I engaged Bonnie St Julien to develop and execute a coaching program focused on the middle manager community.  The results have exceeded expectations….I have found Bonnie to be a motivated self-starter who availed herself to my managers and team.  She is dependable, results oriented professional.  I highly recommend her coaching program to any Executive looking to invest training dollars in order to maximize results.”    Ron Meighan, Director General (2015)


Thank you for a great (Effective Communications) workshop.  It was obvious the time that you spent preparing the workshop for us and the pride you take in delivering the information.  Nothing was forgot, all resources were so professional and you are a very effective facilitator/coach.  I could tell the team members were impressed by this class.  You left us with lots to think about and calls to action.  I even had the “preview” with our one on one session and I too left with more goals, motivation and areas I wish to further develop. You exceeded my expectations – Completely impressed!  Strandz Hair Design & Il Paradiso Spa and Tanning, Ottawa (2015)


Thank you for being a fantastic coach and mentor to me. I feel as though a weight has been lifted following our session this morning.  I don’t know that you’ll ever know or see how profoundly our sessions change and mold me into the person that I’m meant to be and the person I want to be, but they do…and for that I am deeply grateful.

Bonnie…I wanted to let you know how much my coaching session helped ground me this week and prep me for the weeks to come. I always walk away from my coaching sessions with a renewed perspective and motivation to continue to refine myself, but this week was really powerful for me. There were many aha moments during our session…and those moments and your challenge to me have stuck with me. I went back through my DISC profile to remind myself of where I’m strong and where I need improvement. (Joanne.W. 2014)


Life coaching with Bonnie has allowed me to invest in myself and has benefited every aspect of my life.  With her guidance, I now have clarity on my life path, what is truly important to me, and what I need to put in place to sustain a balanced, fulfilling life. (M.A. 2014)


It has truly been a pleasure working with Bonnie.  She has helped me achieve my goal of planning ahead and being proactive…I always looked forward to our time together and after every session, I’m excited about putting my plan into action.  She would give me a copy of the notes and recordings which I really appreciate because it allowed me to review and listen to our sessions.  Thank you for everything Bonnie!

Bonnie, I just want to take a moment to tell you that I have found my coaching experience with you to be very enlightening. I find the exercises that you have introduced me to are very relevant and have helped me to focus on what I need in the area of self-development.  I would like to thank you for the time and patience you have shown me while I become more self-aware and work on the areas that will help me to succeed in my career. You are an excellent coach and fun to work with and I look forward to a continued coach/coachee relationship in the future. (B.C 2013)
