Here’s what some of my clients say about their coaching experience with me. As I read these I’m humbled and inspired, and hope their stories will inspire you as well.

I started working with Carli during a challenging time in my life. He listened and advised me by telling me what I needed to hear exactly when I needed to hear it and then provided the tools and support to make positive adjustments.
Initial meetings with Carli lead to realizations about myself that were uncomfortable to hear but were needed to identify areas that were holding me back. Carli then guided me through the use of his processes, like his Future Past Vision and Life Purpose Triangle, which I still use as my own guiding compass throughout a given day.
It was evident that Carli genuinely cared about and enjoyed helping me make these changes as he was thorough and prepared for our meetings, held me accountable throughout the process, and expressed genuine excitement and happiness as things manifested along the way.
To end our work together, Carli prepared a summary of what was accomplished throughout the coaching along with tailored focus/risk areas that I regularly refer to as a reminder to keep moving forward.

Carli is a magnificent professional and a top-level coach. But above all, he is a person who shows you how to live consciously. He has helped me to work on my “Life Purpose Triangle”, through which I have prioritized the pursuit of my vital Purpose and moved away from the din of daily routine. Since then I feel I’m living the process of achieving my goals next to my family more intensely.
Carli excels through the depth of his thoughts, his power of reflection, and how he enjoys helping others to improve, clarify aims, and establish priorities. The humility with which he addresses his guidance is admirable and invites you to form a bond of trust with him, which enriches the introspection process. The level of consciousness that his teachings induce sets your feelings aside and helps you to find the essential values that we must all consider on our way to happiness.

Carli came recommended by a good friend. The idea was intriguing to me. Being open to change and feeling the need to talk prompted me to make contact.
He has a way of looking at life that helps draw out what’s already inside of you. He has the ability to present things differently. His energy is positive.
Carli has influenced the way I see things. I am more present. I know what my ideal Alison is. I focus and build on those passions. I have the ability to correspond with my feelings and see what I have instead of what I have not.
I look forward to talking with Carli as I uncover a whole new world each time. I would highly recommend him to my good friends who I know would enjoy the journey.

Coaching wasn’t something I had considered, but I was looking for ways to focus my business goals forward and to develop tools to make that happen. Working with Carli was like chatting with an old friend: one who cares enough to push you and insightful enough to drill down to the real goals.
I heartily recommend Carli to anyone who has a busy life, but is still searching for a full life. He can help you work out what really matters and how to get there.

The process I experienced through Carli’s coaching was profound and real at a moment in my life when I needed to put things in order internally and empower myself to close old cycles and open new ones. Visualizing my Life Purpose Triangle has helped me greatly, and six years later it still guides my professional and spiritual plans.
Carli is a focused coach; he facilitates a rich knowing of yourself through introspection and exercises that I found deeply revealing. I consider it very important to allow oneself such a space at some point in life, and Carli is an inspiring coach who is perfectly fit for that.

I didn’t really know what coaching was about. A friend recommended Carli, told me that he had helped him a lot in a specific situation. I did the same, reached out to him with the intention of acting on specific situations: my professional and romantic life. However, not long after starting to work with him a close friend died in an accident. From this incident onward we worked on the topic of death, bonds with others, friendship, letting go, gratitude for friendship, among others.
Those were very difficult times for me, and Carli listened all the while and guided me through (mental) exercises. We would meet at a park, which for me was much better than a cold, enclosed space. There I cried and cried, and it was liberating. Also, my friends who witnessed the accident were also guided by Carli in a group (meditation) session in which we worked the topic of death and saying good-bye. We were all very fond of that session. Most of us cried, and my friends were very grateful to Carli.

At a certain point in my life I was trapped in a series of situations that harmed me personally and professionally. Through his coaching, Carli helped me to set clear priorities and remove “toxic agents” from my life. What I most admire about him is his iron will and that he always shares his good vibes with everyone. And aside from his coaching, he is an excellent human being and friend.

Carli’s coaching has been a guide that has helped me to clarify goals and break down mental blocks in my personal and professional life. His way of conducting every session and workshop is unique and empowers you to make the most of yourself. A highly qualified professional; I recommend him 100%.

I was yearning for progression, but without any specific goal in mind. All I knew is that I didn’t feel in control; like I was in the back seat being taken on a ride with no way to direct the driver. I sought the help of a few life coaches. Their methods seemed formulaic and impersonal, like each sentence was being read from a “how to” coaching manual!!
Carli’s approach is much more organic and thoughtful. He quickly found that I grasp concepts best when they are illustrated using real-life metaphors. This approach might not work for all, but that’s exactly the point! Carli’s coaching style is like a bespoke craft, custom fitted to the individual, existing within the present moment.
Carli introduced me to tools and techniques for viewing and mindfully responding to everyday life situations within the scope of the “big picture”. As a result of these practices, I have more clarity, control and a calmer overall presence.
I’m really happy with the progress made – thanks to Carli’s insight!

Every time I remember that session (when we made my Life Purpose Triangle) my heart beats faster and I get a smile on my face. It was one of those times you go just for compliance, thinking you’ll hear the same old story, making you reflect at that moment but a week later you’re back in your old attitude and routine. The difference was the guidance Carli provides to rediscover your talent. I realized that what we are passionate about is necessary for those around us. You feel useful and grateful at the same time, a perfect mix that elevates trust, increases oxytocin in the brain, and knowing that from the same activity you will have the necessary prosperity to carry on with your life project.
Of course there’s Coach Carli’s charisma and his hand that holds you without intruding, but without letting go. You know he’s there when you feel you’ll slip, and he gets you on your way again with a bespoke action plan. It seems like he has already seen the movie of your life, and when you least expect it you’re at the summit, living and enjoying your Life Purpose.

Setting off on the road toward self-knowledge was an important step in my life, and doing it in Carli’s company has been revealing. The tools we’ve used, the empathy between us, and the achievements that have followed the coaching workshops and sessions I’ve had with Carli are all proof that they have been the right steps, with a lot of clarity and enjoyment along the way. Once again, it has been a pleasure to have met on this path!

What I have found most beneficial from working with Carli is allowing myself to choose to employ my positive energy, such that it adds value to my day-to-day activities and long-term goals. As for why I wanted to work with him is first of all trust, and secondly, respect for what Carli has always stood for in his journey of personal growth.

“Self Power Source”
The meaning of Life Coaching for me goes beyond having taken a workshop. It was the moment in my life when I decided to give myself the opportunity to know myself and accept to live a transformation process from the inside, to discover myself. I am the protagonist of my life, the only person with whom I will undoubtedly live until my last moment, whom I acknowledge and whose every aspect I value, accepting every imperfection.
Before I knew about coaching I wasn’t used to establishing relationships in which I opened myself up or exposed my feelings; years had to pass for this to happen. It was no coincidence to have met Carli. He arrived at a point in my life when my internal compass pointed in several directions, with no “true north”.
Engaging in the first few conversations was uncomfortable, since he would press my most sensitive buttons. I felt uneasy sharing my feelings with someone whom I had recently met, as this was not common of me.
After getting to know him and seeing that he is a transparent, congruent, and constantly transforming human being, Carli came to earn my admiration, someone with whom I can share any situation and expect an objective and to-the-point opinion, with brutal honesty.
I am infinitely grateful to you for being. In Lak’ech!

I am very happy to have been able to work with Carli. In his “Believing is Seeing” workshop he showed us techniques that have allowed me to trade deep-seated, negative thoughts for positive ones that have helped me face personal challenges in a much better way. He also helped me to find what my own Life Purpose is by way of his Life Purpose Triangle process. Thanks to that exercise I am now clear on what it is and can focus on it; I’m now happily working on the path that’s best synchronized with my Purpose.
The techniques that Carli has developed to help us see the situations we face daily more clearly are very effective – when we put them into practice.

It’s difficult to summarize in a few lines the benefits at all the levels I’ve experienced from Carli’s coaching. I know myself better: by applying awareness before an impulse I can anticipate my own reactions and give them a different direction – without losing my essence. Working mainly on awakening my own awareness has made relating to others and managing conflict much easier.
Carli’s coaching is impressively assertive, a defining tool to complement my personal development and self-mastery.

Carli is one of those people who fills you up with energy every time you meet. Talking with him inspires one to reflect, to know oneself, and to improve as a person.
His “New Year’s Commitments” workshop helped me to set my Big Scary Goal of getting certified as a Health Coach and to take steps toward it, parting from a place of self-knowing and projecting myself into the future.
Thank you, Carli!

My experience of coaching through Carli… Taking this coincidence in life Carli arrived with a clear message, beyond what you normally use to define yourself: Who are you? At which point of the road did you stall? The tools that he facilitated to discover this were precise for the moment I was living then… to return to basics, to look at my internal flame which had been smothered by everyday duties and return to my personal power.
A simple, enjoyable, and powerful way to self-awareness.

Coaching can be as effective as you want it to be. This is my experience:
Carli will first establish some sort of connection or what it feels like a safe space so you can trust yourself enough to really start talking. He will show you all types of tools you can work with and soon enough, as the sessions progress, the correct tool will naturally click in. This really depends on you and your level of open-mindedness.
Carli will subtly (even if he denies his subtlety, and with no BS nor hidden meanings!), guide and help you organize your emotions so you can hit the main issue exactly when you are prepared to. Issues that you may think are not involved, usually are and you may even be surprised by this or even think you’re trailing off subject (Trust me. You’re not). But, the issue will be resolved if you let it and the more you actively work on it, the better.
I wanted to see if this type of, what I now call, “healing tool” (coaching) would be able to mend specific, emotionally deep and traumatizing side effects caused by a violent experience. And, I particularly chose this subject because I had unsuccessfully tried working on it with a shrink. It was a bit tough for both of us, giving the nature of the issue, but I am happy to say that we resolved it!
Carli has the skill to translate what your mind and heart are screaming to you, even if you think you’re already listening. This is why it’s very important to be open-minded and not to judge. I am sure he can help you help yourself!!

It may sound like a cliché but it’s true: there has been a before and an after Carli’s coaching experience. I’ve changed, am more optimistic and feel stronger. I have felt like this before but this time I learnt not how to ‘feel’ like this but how to ‘BE’. And this makes all the difference… for the rest of my life.
I also very much trusted Carli and let myself go without a doubt. I’ve known Carli for a long time. He is extremely (and incredibly) thorough in everything he does, and I knew he would not leave anything out to explore, question, observe, and learn to help make a difference in my life. And so he did.

The main benefits that coaching has given me are seeing life from a different point of view and achieving the goals that I set for myself. I started with the objective of improving my business and now, after a year of coaching I have achieved success professionally as well as personally.
Trust in the coach is one of the most basic things, and Carli inspires a lot of trust. His way of explaining concepts, his relaxed but very focused style make you feel like you are talking with a friend who guides, questions and orients you to achieve what you really want.
Coaching has become a life style for me, and it’s not something I want to trade up 🙂

Coaching has taught me many things; one of the most valuable is that my mind is an extraordinary ally of my future and that it’s totally up to me to make it stay that way.
Carli’s guidance arrived in my life as a very helpful resource just when I was trying to figure out the next step. Wanting to control everything around me had me all worn out. His trustworthy personality made it easier to confront certain paradigms and other monsters. He gives himself totally to his work and has an interest for custom fitting his coaching for you.
For now, I can say that having an ideal projection of my life makes the road more special and worth it, because now I know where I’m going and most importantly, when I’ll be getting there.
Dreaming is alright, but living your dreams is awesome 🙂
