Working with Irina Benedict has had a huge impact on my life and my future. Before, I was lacking confidence in my own skills and abilities, and didn’t trust myself to make important decisions. I felt like a victim. I also had a rather low opinion of myself and what I had to offer. Through our work together, she helped me to turn it completely around by helping me to realize that I was holding myself back from a great life, and that I have the power within me to have everything I want and then some. It was wonderful to know this truth, and that it didn’t have to stay that way..by following her advice I have come out on the other side a different person! I will forever be grateful to her for what she has done for me. Thanks Irina!
“I won a Strategy Session with Irina at the Women of Success awards event. I was so happy! I wanted to talk to Irina from the moment I saw her present and winning the prize was the answer to my prayer. I had my session with Irina and I am definitely looking forward to meet with her on regular basis. Only from this one session I have already gained a lot of clarity on how to manage my time and on what I have to improve to be successful in my business. Her confidence inspired me in being more organized and optimistic. She is passionate in what she is doing and very professional. If you need clarity in your path forward I highly recommend Irina!”
“When I first connected with Irina, I was thrilled to see how gentle and warm she is. I felt an instant connection. I was also about to learn how intuitive she is, as well as generous of heart. Previous to my first meeting with Irina, I was reinventing my business and had been struggling to move forward. I knew what my heart and soul wanted to do, but I was scared to put something so personal out into the world.
In a short time Irina helped me get very clear on what was preventing me from jumping into something my spirit really wanted to do, she helped me clear some of the gunky energy out so that I could come at my dreams and goals from a place of joy, rather than fear. She gave me some strategies and tools to help me trust myself. Irina is very intuitive and can get to the heart of the matter quickly. She also is very direct and open with her thoughts, which is something I appreciate about her. You never have to guess what she is thinking and she shares her gifts openly and with grace. If you are thinking about working with Irina, I say go for it. In fact, I have recommended her to people I care about directly because I believe she has great coaching skills. I know I was able to start realizing my goals and I have never been more excited about the direction my life and business are taking. Things are falling into place so much easier than before with her insights and support.
Much love to you Irina! Thank you so much!
Before I started working with Irina, I was in the process of visioning my new business. I had a huge vision that was too big for me to do by myself I was working on it, but wasn't sure where to start, if it was valid. I was overwhelmed. Irina helped me to see that my vision was worthwhile and that I could accomplish it with some strategic work on both actions for the business as well as some major mindset shifts. She helped me see that the fact that my vision was big and scary (but exciting) that meant it was something worth going for. She also helped me to shift my thinking around past failures and successes so I can learn from the experiences and truly acknowledge the successes I've had and use that to fuel my confidence for the next phase of my journey.
Irina is very gifted. She has a presence that immediately made me feel held and loved. I highly recommend her coaching to anyone who wants to create something new in their life. Working with Irina will help you get there faster and with a great deal more personal growth than doing it alone.
Thank you once again for being a part of my growth and movement as a journey forward on this quest we call life. I am empowered to continue to make new goals and succeed in achieving what I have set into motion. As for finding my voice, You would have been proud of me on Saturday. I was at a Celebration of Life for a dear friend and was asked to read a short letter to the group and I did. Four months ago I would have declined. I did not worry that my voice would crack or that I may shed a tear or two or that I may stumble over words. I just did it the best I could and felt wonderful and proud of myself afterwards.
I have found my voice and will continue to use it without fear of what I may perceive as not good enough. For I am good enough and I do need to be heard in whatever that capacity may be.
Thank you, Most Sincerely and heart felt, Peace, Love and Laughter,
Working with Irina was an incredible experience! I went in, not knowing what to expect, and I was a little bit nervous. Right away, Irina's calm demeanor put me at ease. She was easy to talk to, and she helped me to dig deep into myself to pull out the things that were causing my issues with my supervisor. I was in a situation that was extremely stressful and dreaded going to work each day. Irina helped me to get to the core of the issue. I feel freedom! I am now able to realize the truth, and I am already seeing significant changes in my relationship with my supervisor! Irina helped me to see things as the are, and to admit things that I did not want to admit. But the only way we can change is to be honest with ourselves. I am amazed at the peace, joy, and love I am feeling and am able to express, even though my situation at work has not changed significantly. Irina helped me to make a change within myself. I cannot say thank you enough, Irina!”
"Irina has inspired me to evaluate my thoughts, what I say and what I think about myself. She made me understand that it is really important to take care of myself while I passionately grow an amazing business."
"Irina has helped me to understand myself and my important relationships better, and the group coaching keeps me accountable to others for working on my goals. The things I've learned are important life skills that enable me to enjoy a more fulfilled life. I can't thank you enough, Irina, for teaching me how to let go of fear, be more accepting of myself, and go for what I want. I would recommend this program to anyone who is ready to be guided toward self-fulfillment."
"I had the pleasure of working with Irina. Not only is she very insightful, she is warm and genuine and instantly makes you feel at ease. Her program takes you through several exercises that really give you some clarification and explanation on why we do some of the things that we do. Working with her was a wonderful experience".
Irina has a way of looking at things differently, so much so that it changes your view of reality for the better. As a result of coaching with her I am getting a better understanding of myself, I am setting goals and on my way to achieving them and living the life that was meant for me".
“I discovered Irina at a time when I was questioning the direction of my life, particularly my career as an artist. With her guidance, I discovered what was blocking my progress. She challenged me to use this new-found knowledge to adjust outdated thought patterns and/or actions and to let go of preconceptions in order to move forward. Working with Irina, I was able to map out a tangible plan to reach my goals and to feel fulfilled as an artist. Her professional and encouraging approach make the sessions safe, comfortable and supportive. Thanks Irina!”
Irina helped me create a solid plan of action when I was feeling completely overwhelmed without any direction. Thank you Irina for helping me reframe my thinking about my current situation, supporting me in opening up to unexplored career options and helping me see the light at the end of the tunnel when I was feeling very much in the dark. You're awesome! "
When I hired Irina, I was looking for some guidance and support to help me as my team and business grew. I knew I was really good at delivering results to my clients, but wasn’t sure of my skills as a manager of others and how to motivate them to also want to deliver the same results. After just our first session, I had some great information that I could immediately put into use in my business and Irina gave me some feedback that will be very helpful as I grow. I would highly recommend Irina’s coaching to any entrepreneur who wants to build a team – the right way the first time."
“Irina is an amazing coach! In less than 30 minutes, she gave me a transformation that rocked my world! She set me free and gave me a clear strategic direction! She not only gave me a path forward to take my business to the next level, but she helped me to get out of myown way and release myself from the "stuff" that was making me feel so weighed down! I instantly felt delighted and excited by what I GET to do as my next steps! Thank you Irina!!! Sending love to you!!”
My dear Irina, Nice to hear from you. I am so happy to learn that your husband and you have ventured on doing what you both love. It takes a lot of guts and confidence to start your own business but you know you will make an exceptional coach. Take it from someone who has received your life coaching. I carry your words in my head when I am going for a treatment and it had been very effective. You got the necessary qualities, the knowledge and the heart. I hear you Irina, learn to love and to receive love freely - thanks for the reminder. You also made a big impact on teaching me to love my portacath -the little thing inside of me that gave me my chemotherapy. I listened to you put my hands on my chest and said "I love you". It really helped. Love you
"I had a great experience when I went to see Irina at Free Spirits Wellness. I was interested in life coaching services. I was greeted with a warmth and compassion by Irina, and with her coaching I was able to make some headway with the resistance I have been experiencing in life. I am no longer trying, I am doing. What does that mean? It means actively pursuing my passions in order to become the best guide I can be."
