"My journey with Terry started from a desperate google search. For the previous 6 months something had been building inside me. I was at the peak of my career. I had a loving, supportive, husband and two beautiful girls, but something was missing. I wasn't happy. 

Working in downtown Tempe, I passed a lot of homeless every day. I began to hand out bottles of water and meal replacement bars on my breaks at work. After a few weeks I realized that my moments with these strangers were the most peaceful, happy, parts of my day. I knew I needed a change. The problem is I am very good at change. Too good. So good that I raced from one thing to another at a full sprint with all my heart. Needless to say, this method wasn't working. 

One day I started google searching random "help me" words and I discovered the term life coach. I was contacted by Terry, and 5 minutes into our conversation I knew she was perfect for me. I didn't even take the calls from others. 

How My Life Has Changed

I always new that following your passions was important. I was throwing passion everywhere, but Terry helped me find my 5 core passions that are deeply a part of who I am. This is no small feat. These passions now serve as a compass through the choices I make for myself. Simply put, I know what choices will lead to happiness for me. 

The Embarrassing Truth
Two of the most powerful tools Terry helped me develop have to do with truths about ourselves that may be a little embarrassing to admit. For me, I always knew that I felt unhappy when I was not in control. I thought that part of myself was something I just had to deal with. Terry helped me develop a tool to recondition my feelings about control in a positive way. This tool has been fantastic. I look at it every day and also feel pride that I created it myself. 
Another truth about myself is I love praise. I need it or I forget the good and focus on the bad. Terry and I came up with the idea of a praise board. I write great things about myself on the whiteboard every day. The white board is displayed in the kitchen for me to constantly see. Working with Terry helped me understand that if you discover things that build you up, embrace them. Who cares if I have "you are an awesome Mom" in my kitchen. I am an awesome Mom and we should be good to ourselves."
Thank you, Terry.                                                     — Ashley Lanyi Age 32, Mother of 2

“Terry is not the first life coach I have worked with… but she will be the last! I loved her approach and the way she held me accountable for each and every goal I set out to achieve.

I was frustrated, I felt stuck, and I lacked a passion for my career. When I worked with Terry, I quickly learned—despite how I saw it—that it was effecting each area of my life. I learned how to create life balance, and more importantly how to recognize when the balance is off and how to adjust it.

Thanks to Terry—in just a few sessions—I now have a vision and a bright new path. Thank you for lighting the way! You are a unique and truly gifted life coach. You have helped me develop skills which I hope to carry throughout my life. Thank you!”

After I met Terry, I knew she could help me create the life I wanted because we immediately connected. I was in a time of transition with my business and Terry helped me work through the “gremlins” and push past the self-doubt to create the life and business I truly wanted.

It has been 2 years since I first had coaching sessions with Terry. Since then, my life has truly evolved into the life I’ve always wanted. I was able to quit my full-time job and now I run my own business from home. I credit Terry’s thoughtful coaching methodologies, she helped me create a vision for my life and encouraged me every step of the way to live it. Thank you!”

“I put my trust in Terry’s expertise and was able – with her coaching and my openess – to identify the root of my behaviors that disabled me from being my true self.

She has a gift, she continuously encourages me to examine my actions and stay the course to achieve what I know I want out of life. Terry has reminded me there is no external beauty without internal happiness and peace with who you are. I am very grateful for the new life she has helped me realize.”
— Diane M.

“I had never thought about working with a life coach, but when I met Terry I knew there was a great opportunity before me. She helped me break down my goals into tangible steps and pushed me past the obstacles I was creating for myself.

I hadn’t yet realized that fear and apprehension were preventing me from making productive strides towards my goals. My problem was not finding passion for what I do, it was simplifying my client communications to convey how life changing eating well is. Terry helped me find the language to convey what it is that makes my company unique - so much more than just another dreaded diet!

I will carry her advice with me as an arsenal against each obstacle I face. I am so grateful that through her coaching, l found the dialogue to ultimately help me help others.”

“Terry Sidford is a powerful motivator and role model for anyone desiring positive growth and fundamental change in their life. She is down-to-earth, respectful and supportive. Coaching with Terry will be time well-spent. She’s particularly adept in assisting her clients in revealing their personal barriers and focusing on the path to move past them and heal. I can’t recommend her enough!”
