What is Life Coaching?

There's No Greater Investment!

Life Coaching is a profession that is profoundly different from just mere consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy, or counselling. The coaching process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in your personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be.

Life coaching is an action-oriented and solution-based approach where you are not just listened to but offered effective solutions to help you reach your goals. Through the coaching conversations, exercises, various tools and techniques, reflection, powerful questioning and inquiry you develop the confidence and the trust in self to not just live a mediocre life but to thrive on the right track.

We all have enough negativity in our lives, often, leading to great anxiety and fear.  These harmful thoughts and feelings can prevent forward motion. Life coaching is based on positive psychology. You will learn to recognize unhealthy thought patterns that hold you back and use your strengths to reach your goals. You’ll discover how to reflect and learn from your actions and experiences so you are experiencing an action-learning-growth cycle. But primarily our focus will be on moving you forward with an emphasis on having a positive, healthy and focused head space.

Life Coaching Testimonials

It is hard to believe

It is hard to believe how my life was before I came to see Brendan. I feel like I’m totally in control over my life now.
I went on a serious Keto diet and lost 13kgs. I am currently eating healthy and haven’t had alcohol for a month. Sleeping well and feeling energised every day.
Choosing to be happy has become easier for me after my coaching sessions with Brendan; he helped me gain a positive perspective on life in general. And I’m grateful for him showing me other ways of healing myself. I know now to surround myself with the right people.
I have been chosen as a “Culture Champion” at work. My job is to run workshops using mindfulness techniques to bring positive energy in being aligned with the company values. I love it as it enables me to help someone be happy. I’m the Brendan in my company.
My crew members are listening to me now and my ship is back on course.
Thank you for everything and for keeping in touch.

A powerful transformation is taking place in my life.

I wasn’t sure if life coaching was what I needed to help me reach my goals, but after only one month of working with Brendan a powerful transformation started taking place in my life. I love getting up in the morning, I delight in my children and my husband, and I am allowing myself to enjoy the journey. Brendan’s guidance, support, and honest feedback is teaching me to embrace my unique approach to life and live in a way that truly brings me joy.

You should definitely give this a go

I have been working with Brendan Hadley for about 8 months, both as part of a couple and on my own. His warm, enthusiastic and open nature makes him very easy to talk to, and his intellectual rigour and heavyweight background means that I have absolute confidence in his ability to manage some of the more challenging emotional issues I have had to deal with. Brendan provides insightful guidance as well as a truly non-judgmental and welcoming space to be heard in.

My Life Coach has really helped me to enjoy life more.

My Life Coach has really helped me to enjoy life more. I used to be very stressed out about making more money. Brendan has helped me turn my paralyzing stress into renewed confidence. It has resulted in more productivity and more income. I strongly recommend Evolution Institution to everyone!

Terrence Spall

I deeply thank you Brendan, if only there were more people in the world like you.

I was really sheltered and naive growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness

When I lost my faith and challenged the church, they denounced me and spread gossip about me, pressuring me to stay silent when I spoke out. And my family even excommunicated me for no good reason.

Although I was grateful for being free of all the controlling influences and brainwashing of the church, I was heavily dealing with separation anxiety and kind of felt like I had jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire! Nothing made sense anymore and the dating world was really scary. I was taken advantage of a few times, I almost totally gave up on love and humanity as a whole, but Brendan made me feel that I wasn’t alone, and he really helped me turn everything around.

You taught me so many things and really empowered me to make more positive changes in my life, now I’m in a healthy relationship and moving forward in a positive direction.

From the bottom of my heart, I deeply thank you Brendan, if only there were more people in the world like you.

Esther Stevenson

I finally found the answers I’ve been looking for.

In the sessions with Brendan I felt that I was taken on a voyage to the outer reaches of the universe and to the ultimate meaning of things where all my questions had an answer.
Brendan has a great capacity to transmit profound concepts in a simple and accessible language.

I felt when speaking with him that all the universe opened up to me and made sense and left feeling inspired with a smile on my face and warmth in my heart.

I highly recommend him to you

I will be forever grateful for the support and kindness Brendan has shown me during one of the most difficult seasons of my life. His listening ears, non-judgmental attitude and ability to empathies are much appreciated. I greatly looked forward to our sessions and I am so pleased to know him. My sessions with Brendan have been such a positive and restorative experience.

Susie Randall

Wow, talk about getting a whole new lease on life!

I was expecting a session with Brendan where he would advise me on directions to take to make my life happy. He instead taught me how to choose my own directions and grow as a person for unlimited happiness. I discovered the need to set goals, achieve them and celebrate.
Since taking coaching sessions, I have gone back to music playing, studying, meeting new people, contacting old friends. It has also helped me strengthen relationships with my family.
I have gained a lot more than I expected from life coaching. This is just the start of the new me.

I definitely recommend!

I have read many self-help books over the years but the progress I’ve made from coaching through Evolution Institution has been the best by far. I recently experienced life coaching with Brendan, it was truly powerful and helped me gain a greater understanding about myself and my needs. Brendan has always made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. He always checks in with me and how I am doing throughout the process, he’s very friendly and very good at his job! I would definitely see him again and recommend Evolution Institution and Brendan to others or even as a gift!

My experience with Brendan’s coaching has made a profound difference in my life.

My experience with Brendan’s coaching has made a profound difference in my life. I have allowed myself to explore and to awaken parts of my erotic self that had been repressed or blocked for most of my life. I have been able to really acknowledge and celebrate my sexuality and to face up to my inhibitions and feelings of guilt about my sexual desires and arousals. For the first time I felt my sexuality was fully accepted, even the parts that I had thought of as ‘kinky’ and ‘nasty’. My opening has had very positive implications for my sex life. I have gained skills in connecting with women and have much greater control over my ejaculation and sexual responsiveness.

I would recommend Brendan’s services to anyone who asks me.

I first met Brendan about 2 or 3 years ago during a very difficult time in my life. I was at a crossroads in my life. I was feeling very depressed. I was always confused as to why life was so hard and what was the meaning of it all. Big questions! This one particular day, I literally just happened to be talking to a friend of mine and she suggested I see Brendan. After reading Brendan’s website I wondered if this guy was doing so much, could he really be good at anything? But then I thought maybe he must know something that I don’t and I wanted some answers.

Anyway, I ended up making the appointment. And It was exactly what I needed. Brendan taught me how everything is interconnected, and also taught me all about the different personalities of people and how we all learn, behave and react differently to different things. This helped me to understand my partner better and ultimately save our marriage.

Over the years I have been able to use all of the techniques that Brendan has taught me. I set a goal and see myself achieving it. With this, I have ran a marathon, bought my home, set up a successful business, created a happy marriage and have two beautiful children.

Most recently, I was having trouble with my daughter’s school teacher. She was being a bully to the kids and as it was my first experience with primary school for my kids, I wasn’t sure what to do. I contacted Brendan who was able to see me. Brendan gave his time to me generously. He didn’t rush me. We went over so many things in our time. Most importantly, I realised that the courage was within me to confront the school and ultimately have our daughter moved to a new class, where she has been extremely happy ever since.

Brendan has taught me to trust my inner compass. That the answers are within me if I just sit and listen. He will always tell me the truth and what is needed to be heard without sugar-coating it. His perspective on things is a blessing. I would recommend his services to anyone who asks me.

Brendan Hadley has helped me

Brendan Hadley has helped me work through a mix of small and big hurdles. At a superficial level this is stuff about work, money, love and parenting. Deeper down, it’s actually about wounds I’ve carried since being a child and the unhelpful habits I’d adopted to cope with them. With sharp insight and terrific empathy, Brendan helped me link my current patterns to the past, but importantly, he connects that guidance to practical suggestions for being in the present – at work and home. I’ve leaned heavily on Brendan during some dark moments. He was there, and he was wise.

Working with Brendan has been a life-changing experience for me.

Working with Brendan has been a life-changing experience for me. His coaching sessions consistently provide fresh opportunities to discern the true nature of my life situation, to become clearly aware of where I am, where I really want to go and most importantly, what I need to do to get there. Once the way is clear, Brendan’s coaching provides a gentle but effective accountability mechanism to keep me on the path that I have chosen. In just a few months, I’ve seen my stress level drop and my overall personal and professional life satisfaction grow by leaps and bounds.

Timothy Lewis

One of the best decisions was to reach out to Brendan for help.

Coming out as nonbinary has and will always be a journey without a clear beginning and end.

Some days I can live in the expansiveness of myself, and some days I feel restrained by others’ expectations and assumptions. Some days I feel valid as a “twilight person,” existing between and outside of binaries, and some days explaining and defining who I am is too tiring and I wish for simplicity. I used to have total emotional meltdowns about that when would happen, and then I would find myself stuck wallowing in a deep pit of despair for long periods of time, (which admittedly was pretty maladaptive on my part) but Brendan has really helped me self-regulate my emotions.

He helped me become more confident, more aware, and more reflective of my thoughts.

He helped me feel more forgiving towards others, and helped me see all the positives within myself and run with them.

Brendan’s life coaching skills were inspiring, exuberant, and spectacular.

I’m now focusing on me, and so much of this stems from his work with me. Thank you, Brendan!

I became a better me!

I have worked with Brendan for over 2 years now; he is my go-to guy for any personal problems and family issues! Brendan has a steady approach to coaching and has helped me make the changes I needed to become a better me. I don’t know where I would be without his insight and skill and his no-nonsense approach. I’m sure I’ll be working with Brendan for many years to come.

Kathy Gillan

I feel excited to finally be finding great guys with potential with all his help!!!

My main concern with getting support from Evolution Institution was the financial investment.

What I like most about working with Brendan is his personal involvement, personal touch, and personal attention to miniscule details.

His ability to draw out my fears and help me to face them has also really helped me.

Brendan has also helped me maintain a positive attitude, helping me to look for the positive in every situation.

I would recommend anyone not getting the results they want in their personal life work with Brendan and Evolution Institution to get the personal support which has helped me.

I feel excited to finally be finding great guys with potential with all his help!!!

Chrissy Johnson

I have never been so happy and fulfilled.

Every therapist I ever worked with told me I couldn’t have what I really wanted in my life, that I would just have deal with my disappointment and live with my unmet needs. Brendan is the first person who actually showed me that I could get all of those needs met in my life. I have never been so happy and fulfilled.

⭐  ⭐  ⭐  ⭐  ⭐

Stephanie Ling

Brendan was the first person who really heard me.

I was trapped in a glass bubble looking out at the world. I could see how it could be, I could see how others could live happy, fulfilling lives. But I couldn’t make it happen for myself. Nobody noticed my suffering. Brendan was the first person who really heard me. He looked into the glass bubble at me and said metaphorically, “Hello there, do you want to come out here with me?”. He kindly and gently led me out of that bubble and now I am in a position to help others find their way out. I am happier and freer than I’ve been in the last 20 years of my life. Thank you Brendan.

Joanna Tollio

I would recommend Evolution Institution to anyone

Getting life coaching through Evolution Institution was very helpful to me as I knew I wanted a new career but didn’t know how to go about it… I would recommend Evolution Institution to anyone who is tired of their dull and unfulfilling job and is looking for a way to find a career that is exciting and meaningful to them.

Ting Bai

Once I was an extremely stressed IT Project Manager, now I’m a happy and successful copy editor and small business owner!

Brendan has taken me from a full-on breakdown (I was basically an agoraphobic, unable to leave the house and convinced I was dying) to the point where I have a new career and a normal life again.
Without Brendan’s advice and encouragement I would still be blaming myself for not being a success, instead of having been able to find success in a new place. Thank you, Brendan, for giving me my life back.

Gillian Swift

This is really starting to pay off.

I have to say our last session was really great… I had tried to change the way I think/see the world for a long time… but never succeeded, I think I can do it now because after talking with Brendan, I understand there is a support system created for each belief… I had never considered this before.
Brendan helped me to start truly analysing my beliefs, I really think it’s working, slowly, but it is… I can feel it… I still have a VERY LONG WAY to go… but it’s a start, a great start.

Better than I expected!

Things are going well for me now. I have spent a lot more time on social activities and balance… And I’m feeling more positive in myself.”
“I’m very thankful for Brendan being my Life Coach and for what he has given me… it has made an impact on my life and I am still trying to improve myself day by day. I came to the stage that I had achieved what I was looking for and am very satisfied with this. I can’t recommend getting coached by Brendan enough.

Life Coaching with Brendan changed my life.

Life Coaching with Brendan changed my life. I was at a standstill for over 10 years working a Corporate job I didn’t like. After 1 month of working with him I found a school to attend, my confidence increased in making a decision and I was able to move forward. I ended taking the package from Corporate and now I have the job of my dreams. I am now a Holistic Health Counselor. I see clients privately and I do cooking classes and seminars. I never imagined what working with Brendan would have done. A great experience but also a necessary one to make things happen in my life. I can’t thank him enough.

Susan Cook

I felt a new wave of freedom and new possibilities permeate my being – something that I hadn’t felt in a long time.

Brendan’s approach is incredibly direct. I felt as if his questions were draining poison from my psyche. The next day I felt a new wave of freedom and new possibilities permeate my being – something that I hadn’t felt in a long time. Without Brendan’s help, it would maybe have been impossible to get to this point because you can’t discover a ‘blind spot’ by yourself, you need a mirror. Brendan is the perfect ‘ego-surgeon’ – gentle, precise and incisive.

Josh Hunt

I highly recommend Brendan as an excellent Life Coach.

Life Coaching with Brendan has helped me decide what I want to do with my life. My first Life Coaching session was in September 2020 and we have met three times per month since that time and I have made such progress in my life dreams. I have kept a journal that I write in every time we have a telephone session. I can look back and see where Life Coaching has helped me with the following: Making decisions based on my needs, making decisions without emotions, letting go of guilt, a zest for life, and I learned to say to myself “Is this the best for me because I deserve the absolute best in everything I do”. And the most helpful thing I have learned is to how to stay focused on my goals.

Stephanie Willham

Brendan helped me make my dreams come true!

Coaching with Brendan allowed me to figure out how I could combine my interests and education to have a career that I will love! I have always wanted to have my own business but fear prevented me from taking the steps necessary to make it happen. Brendan’s coaching gave me the inspiration and tools to explore the possibility of having my own business and the confirmation that I can make it work. I now have a timeline to the day I can run my business full time and I look forward to my future career. Brendan helped me make my dreams come true!

Fantastic coaching services

Brendan is a fantastic coach. He’s easy to talk with, an excellent listener, empathetic and organized. He assigned me homework (that was simple, challenging, and do-able) and provided space to check-in, which helped me achieve my goals. Investing in his assistance helped me work on communication, consent, stress, play, pleasure, and so much more. It’s been very rewarding for me as an individual as well as my 16-year partnership. Thank you, Brendan!

Isabella Weber

Life Coaching gave me the real motivation to make awesome changes in my life.

I’ve spent most of my adult life trying to recover from a difficult childhood and, like a lot of people, I have tried many therapies and read countless self-help books. Some of this was very helpful, but Life Coaching gave me the real motivation to make changes, which have led to improvements in all areas of my life.
Although my focus was on career development, I found that looking at how I think and what I believe, and setting goals and formulating steps to achieve these, with the guidance and encouragement of Brendan as my Life Coach, has brought me a degree of success and happiness, which I hardly believed would be possible at the beginning of my journey. It has changed my outlook on life and possibilities and given me the insight and skills to continue the journey forward on all fronts.
I highly recommend Evolution Institution Life coaching to anyone, whatever age or stage in life you’re at.
