I was referred to Roux after I recently got laid off from my permanent job. I felt devastated, undervalued and without direction. He helped me identify my fears for the future and helped me to take action steps towards overcoming them.

He also helped me rediscover the creative things I love to do like photography, music and dancing and I have since actively started doing these activities, by going to dance classes and playing my piano on a regular basis. He challenged me to realize some dreams I have always wanted to pursue, like wanting to take my photography to a level where I would earn an income from it. I made the commitment to complete a 3 week Digital Photography course at a community college in pursuit of this goal, but Roux wanted to push me even further than this.

He helped me identify certain roadblocks like fear of failure and the fear of changing from going from a job with a paid salary to being an entrepreneur and working for oneself. This is something I had never considered before. More specifically he challenged me to do a photography project and receive money for it in order for me to make this mental switch from merely doing it as a hobby as opposed to a business. It was tough, but I was able to take pictures of a kidʼs birthday party and was paid for it. This really pushed me beyond my comfort zone, but I am grateful for the experience. Another roadblock was that I had no active resume or clear understanding of my skill sets and my corporate value. I have since created a new have a resume and through this process have a much better understanding of what value I could bring to a company. Roux has really challenged me to think and act “outside the box”, something I would not have been able to achieve on my own. Although very firm, one knows he has your best interests at heart and rejoices with every challenge one overcomes or goal one reaches. He is humane, compassionate and always encouraging.

If I compare the first week to the sixth one, I see the following progress/ changes: I donʼt feel so overwhelmed anymore. A shift took place when I realized I can take charge of my future. I feel that I now have the confidence and courage to move forward. In the first session I had a feeling that there is a golden thread that runs through my actions. Roux helped me identify this as the fact that I donʼt give up easily. This realization has given me the confidence to trust in my ability to achieve success. He also helped me define my life goal/ purpose and pinned a specific time frame and date for this to be achieved. Mine is the 26th of June this year, and it is on my fiftieth birthday. I have completed the first 6 weeks session and after taking a little break, I will resume with the second session. By the end of that I am confident that I will have attained the things I describe in my goal. I strongly and without any hesitation recommend Roux as an excellent life coach.

When I started coaching with Roux my life felt stuck and stagnant. Within a few sessions I started to enjoy life more and I started to make progress in my industry. Roux has a gentle way of holding up a mirror to you so that you can see what is required of you to improve your life. Since I started coaching with him my life has improved after every session. His knowledge goes beyond what you will find in traditional counselling rooms and he gives you tools to deal with the real world.

“I’ve been under traditional psychological  treatment for many years and didn’t derive much benefit from it. In contrast, Roux gave me practical skills and tools which I  use on a daily basis to not only cope with my anxiety, but to overcome my limiting thoughts and be in control of my own happiness.”

“Through his calm and direct approach, Roux establishes a sense of trust and motivation. I approached him to develop more ‘fun’ in my life. I ended up being transformed and renewed.”

“When I came to Roux I was merely a shell of the man I use to be and I was in a very dark place. I remember leaving the first session already with the feeling  I remember leaving the first session and already feeling like the world had been lifted off my shoulders.”
