I was at a crossroads in my life. I was struggling with huge life decisions and feeling as if I needed to talk to someone to help work through my issues. At this time I found myself in a conversation with Tommy who seemed to be very tuned in to my emotionally distressed state. When Tommy offered to coach me I didn’t hesitate to work with him; I could sense that soon my life changing for the better. His calm presence, active listening, and honest compassion always put me at ease. Tommy helped me to discover what is truly important to me and to have confidence that the choices I make in my life are made because they are best for me, not anyone else. He encouraged me to take charge of my life, do what makes me happy and chase after my dreams. From him I remember to never, never settle. Now, after sorting through some tough life decisions, I can honestly say that I am exactly where I want to be in life and I look forward to the positive change that lies ahead of me. For this, I owe Tommy great thanks.

We have a “Higher Self” and you (Tommy and The Peaceful Minds Center) reminds me of that crucial fact and that it is so… And, how much fun it is to be in touch with your higher self! You assist in removing obstacles that keep you from being in the NOW.

A year ago, my father passed away unexpectedly. I was 26. My dad was the best person in the world to me, and I expected that he would die someday once I was old, once I had kids who could know their grandpa; when I was ready for it. Because grandparents are supposed to die; not parents. When he died, I didn’t know who I was and I had no idea how to live in a world that didn’t have my dad in it, and what that meant for my self-concept and my universe. The death of my dad felt like a hurricane hitting a place that was already a wreck. I had already had a hard year, with several relationships ending and a serious illness. I feld like the punching-bag of the universe. I needed a life coach – not a therapist who would just say “and how did that make you feel” or a spiritual advisor who relied on one dogma. A friend recommended Tommy, and his coaching has been invaluable.
When I first spoke to Tommy I was at a crossroads in my life, and I still am. But Tommy’s compassionate perspective has helped me make a series of what I think are really good decisions, and I now find myself in a place that is absolutely amazing compared to last year. But the best thing is that Tommy never tells me what to do or what not to do; he eschews the words “should” and “shouldn’t.” Instead, Tommy holds up a mirror, and in the course of talking to him, I’m able to figure out what it was I wanted to do all along, and to step confidently into those decisions, knowing that they are mine, and they are valid. By the end of our conversations, I feel like I’m confidently the navigator of my own life and the maker of my own decisions. This is really masterful coaching; I never feel dependent on Tommy or feel that he “knows” what the right thing to do is. Instead, talking to him, I realize that all along, I knew exactly what I needed and wanted, and that I have the power to make it happen.
I recommend Tommy to anyone who needs coaching in navigating a tricky or difficult phase in life. Tommy doesn’t “help you,” he helps you help yourself. The result of talking with Tommy is an amazing clarity, an ability to cut through the distractions and confusions and temptations of day-to-day life; pressures from third parties; sources that are extrinsic to you, your mind, and your priorities – which might not be what other people, and other influences, tell you they should be.
Tommy leaves me with the feeling that I can trust myself, that I’m comfortable, and proud, in my own decisions – even if those decisions take me way out of my comfort zone. Tommy helps me realize what it is I really want to do at various junctures, and helps me realize that all along, I had the courage to make it happen.
There are lots of people out there who make a living giving advice and doling out guidance. Tommy is the best I’ve ever encountered.

Non-judgement. If I had to describe my sessions with Tommy in one word, it would be non-judgement. He has the ability to fully listen and give advice without attaching judgement. Tommy can help you focus your thoughts to the present moment. Thus allowing you to let go of frustration and hurt from the past, and stress from thoughts of the future. Tommy has helped me to filter my emotions and find the cause my suffering in any situation. Whether Tommy is coaching me on personal or career issues, he is always loving, understanding, and knowledgeable. Tommy can give you the tools to start living an full and present life! All I have for Tommy is Love and Gratitude!

“I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to train with Tom. Not only is he a sincere, teaching trainer but a true friend. Through working with Tom I have found that exercise is a great way to feel good, release stress and just have fun! Every other time I have attempted to train, I always felt injured and sore. However, Tom knows my limits physically and emotionally. I believe his wonderful, professional attitude towards general health and well being would be hard to match. Ton is educated and explains in great detail why and how we train the way we do in a way that makes sense to me. I have had the opportunity to work with Tom one on one as well as in a large group and in both situations he has just been great to work with. I’ve watched him take time to explain exercises to all age groups, young and old, and to different levels of physical ability. Additionally, he explains clearly the importance of good physical health and good nutrition as well as the importance of exercise. Tom is truly a gift to his profession!”

I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how your coaching has created a life changing path for me. The path is the key; with your loving, very effective and systematic methods the path is now clear. I am now aware what my purpose is and awareness has allowed me to use my brain as a tool instead of a tape player, playing the same old tune over and over. I didn’t quite know what I was here for, however in a short period, using the work you gave me now I am aware and clear on who I am and why I am here on this earth. My work and life is now peaceful, meaningful and joyful. The connection we made is now to infinity and beyond. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you and look forward to continuing to shape and form the body, explore the mind and be at peace with spirit.

Tom is a wonderful listener and it can feel as if he has a personal stake in your success and health; which he does. He has an exceptional endowment of being able to walk with and guide people through all variation of their lives and its challenges and more importantly, through their ego’s inner clamor which has caused or exacerbated the issue. Tom is also a master carpenter, which he usually doesn’t mention. This means he is naturally a destination “A” to destination “B” guy. He knows how to bridge gaps, cement important changes and does so with the kindness and attention of a parent. Tom’s message and being, is not rhetoric. This is the way he lives, it is state of his home, the condition of his life’s affairs; in short, he is what he teaches. This is called leading by example and flies in the face of the notion “do what I say not what I do.” In Tom’s case, it is do what I do. This is why I not only commend him deeply for his life’s accomplishments, but consider him a seasoned veteran of all things important in this life. If you believe yourself to be more than you are currently being, and deeply want to be fully expressed as a glowing soul, Tom is the vehicle that can help you be this change you want to see.
