He encouraged me to be honest with myself and helped me to break past a point of stasis. For me, a calling to be of service required embarking on a new spiritual journey.

“I had beeHopkinsn looking for a sense of direction since I retired, and reluctant to make any decisions. Steve helped me realize that I can follow my passion and listen to my heart – that’s where the joy of living is… that I can be excited about something I’ve longed to do, something I was fearful about previously. When I talk with Steve, my preconceived notions about what can and can’t work just disappear. He has intuition and insight and a gift for getting to the heart of a matter. He challenges in a way that is inviting, non-judgmental, and non-confrontational, and he facilitates the decision-making process in a way that opens doors. He provides loving, kind, compassionate support – something I never really had. I’m seeing things in a new light, a clarity that has been lacking in my life. Steve is a blessing to me and I highly recommend him to anyone.”
– Steve Hopkins, Retired Tool & Dye Maker

“Steve Hingle’s coaching service has been a wise investment of my resources in my early days here in Madison.  I faced numerous challenges in my life including getting settled in a new town and as well as a career change.  Steve moved smoothly between personal and professional issues with me, asking clear questions, listening closely to my responses and then skillfully offering me my own words back in statements that encouraged and enlightened me.  Becoming the change I want to see has been hard work and I’m thankful for Steve’s adroit support along this journey.”
