What you have to offer is truly a gift, Barb. Thank you for your gentle guidance, helping me connect with my soul and root out the parts of myself that limit me and pull me down, and for helping me find my own enlightened wisdom.I am so thankful that I found my way to you and our group at this stage of transition in my life.
As an ontological coach, I am your partner, I don’t criticize, advise or direct. Together we distinguish the breakdown you are experiencing and your concern and/or commitment. For example, are you working really hard but not getting the results you want? Are there relationships, personal or professional, that aren’t working. Do you have a dream or a longing and don’t know how to fulfill it? Are you experiencing a difficult change: death of a loved one, divorce, serious illness, financial crisis, or other situation that you could use help navigating?
We will explore what you want to create or achieve and why that is important to you. We then begin to ‘peel the layers of the onion’ to explore and discover your current beliefs and perspective and what might be stopping you. It’s often something you don’t currently see and when you do, it opens up whole new possibilities. We can then look at what Way of Being supports the goal and start practicing the body, language and emotions so the actions consistent with your goal flow and the results are achieved.
In addition to ontological coach training, I have studied the neuroscience of behavior change extensively and incorporate it my work. I have also done advanced study in somatics, using the body to support change, as well as emotions and their effect on behavior. My goal is always to find ways that most effectively support my clients in achieving what it is they want in their life.

When I originally started working with Barb, almost every aspect of my life was in an upheaval. I half-heartedly pursued my freelance marketing business but was often overwhelmed with my home/family responsibilities. I lacked direction, motivation, energy and had hit a “black hole” in my creative writing, design and photography. I had difficulty making wise business decisions, particularly when involved in developing partnerships. I found it almost impossible to set healthy boundaries for myself. I was lost, confused and in turmoil.
Now, when I review where I was before working with Barb, the transition to a healthier, happier, more fulfilling life and lifestyle has been phenomenal.Through her expert coaching, I have been able to discover, pinpoint and clarify problematical elements in both my personal and professional life more quickly and with greater accuracy With my growth in self-knowledge, acceptance and a newly acquired ability to see my world and its challenges differently, I am once again able to put my dreams into action in a relaxed, joyful way. Because my perspective has changed, all of my relationships hold greater integrity, clarity and satisfaction. By doing so, I have gained a renewed strength of purpose, independence and what I consider “soul” freedom to be the best I can be.
My coaching with Barb has provided me with connection and trust in myself and in what’s possible for me. I saw that I could generate choices for myself that would have my work fit me better. As a result I took a sabbatical when re-organization had my job eliminated. During that time I reflected on where I could best contribute to the organization and what kind of an environment did I need to perform to my highest potential. At the end of my sabbatical I was offered more than one position and was able to clearly choose the one that fit me the best. As a result of the revelations I had working with Barb I am now in a position that challenges me and allows me to contribute to the organization and myself in a very positive way.Thanks, Barb, for your straight forward, wise questions and making sure that I always put what I cared about first.
When I was in a huge transition in my life Barb Eisele helped me turn it all around. I can literally say “she changed my life.” I am the same person I always was but completely different in many ways. The personal growth I achieved is more than I ever expected. I thought Barb was going to coach me on how to run my business. Not so! She gave me tools that had me look at situations and life in a very different way. She reprogrammed me. She helped me to get out of my box, realize that my reality is not the only reality out there and to be more aware of other people’s intentions and that they have a different reality than I do.
No right or wrong, just different. I learned how to push through things that in the past were uncomfortable to me and to have faith and confidence in myself. She exposed me to so many ideas and programs that were life changing. She has warmth, sincerity, compassion and knowledge. If you are struggling in your life Barb will provide the tools necessary to get you through it.
