“Holly is a holistic coach, and it seems there is no terrain she can’t travel.”

“I deeply enjoyed working with Holly as a coach around purpose, as it seems to be the most important, deepest work we can do! I am at a place in my life where I want to be of service, and Holly helped me move through some remaining pieces that were between me, and being of service, whether it was interpersonal, developmental, professional or spiritual. Holly is a holistic coach, and it seems there is no terrain she can’t travel. I felt uplifted and my state would elevate after each conversation and session I had with her. I would not hesitate to work with Holly again, and to refer my dearest friends and family to her! Holly is a truth teller, one of her most powerful gifts, so open your heart and ears, and you’ll receive what is important to hear next. And, she holds space for you to find your truths, of course, just gently and clearly held so you don’t get too far off track!”

“My creative blocks are virtually gone! This work has, in a sense, really woken me up.”

For the first time in years I feel creatively inspired, more in tune with my true nature, and excited about life. The fire is alive and well. Visions and insights come to me every day. It’s been so wonderful, almost like living in full technicolor vs black and white. My creative blocks are virtually gone! This work has, in a sense, really woken me up. The biggest gift of our work together is the feeling of understanding my purpose. I’m no longer willing to hide. I’ve made connections with people that feel like they are in alignment with my life purpose. You are insightful, highly intuitive, delightful to work with, funny, strong, and a real loving soul. I wouldn’t change a thing about my work with you! I love that you held me accountable, yet supported me through some seriously rough patches with my health/family. If you are ready to wake up and start living your true purpose, I highly recommend Holly. If you prefer to live in delusion, choking on your mind, then I would run for the hills. Holly had a profound impact on my life. This has been such a gift! Thank you!!!

“With a clear understanding of what I was called to do, my life has taken on a whole new meaning.”

With Holly’s help I have identified my unique leadership process and I am working on writing a book to offer the process to the world. I cannot say enough about Holly Woods and how working with her has changed the trajectory of my life. When I first reached out to Holly my life was pretty good. I am the CEO of a successful environmental business, have a healthy and loving family, and have a level of financial security I never expected. By most traditional measures of success, my life was great, but I still felt like something was missing. I saw an ad for Holly’s book, The Golden Thread: Where to Find Purpose in the Stages of Your Life, and I decided to contact Holly to see if she could help me find that missing piece.

After an introductory call, Holly and I got right to work. She had me take a look at the self-limiting beliefs I had been carrying around and she helped me see the threads that ran through every stage of my life. With her encouragement and guidance, I was able to find my Purpose, or what she calls “the thing I can’t help but do.” I was able to clarify my role as a leader in my family, my business, and my community, and how all of these roles were defined and supported by my Purpose.

With a clear understanding of what I was called to do, my life has taken on a whole new meaning. I still have all the things I had before, but I also have a new vision of what it can be. I have co-founded The Second Story Project, which is dedicated to building connections and community inside organizations. With Holly’s help I have identified my unique leadership process and I am working on writing a book to offer the process to the world.

I will be forever grateful to Holly for her insight, guidance, and encouragement, and I recommend her services to anyone who may be looking for the missing part of their life.

Holly is a multifaceted guide, and I received so much from our work together. Her blend of strategy, vision, insight, systemic thinking, and spirituality is unique and powerful. Holly is such a loving and compassionate coach. She has a gift for seeing truth and reflecting it back in a loving way. After working with Holly, I completely shifted my business and the work I was offering. I feel passionate and inspired about what I’m creating, rather than like it’s something I “have to do.” I feel much clearer and more joyful. Aligning to my purpose has allowed my life to flow in a beautiful way. I feel more trust in the Universe.

“Holly was very quick to understand and feel the essence of my work, and helped to shape it for greater success.”

My business did a strategy day with Holly and in 8 hours we literally took my business apart and put it back together. Holly was very quick to understand and feel the essence of my work, and helped to shape it for greater success. Unlike so many business consultants, she doesn’t try to impose her ideas of how things should be, but allows the true nature of the business to emerge. Since then I have felt as if I am following simple instructions that were produced from our strategy, that are making my business into something I couldn’t possibly have imagined or created myself. By the end of the day I was already planning to make it a commitment for my business to meet with Holly regularly and bring more of her magic into the mix.

“I’m relating to life from a soulful and purposeful place- it’s like having saturated color in a world that could often appear drab.”

You were a partner for me in coming to know myself in a deeper register, helping open me to a whole different way of being in the world, with a whole other world of gifts, capacities, and insights. While my external world looks similar, I’m relating to life from a soulful and purposeful place- it’s like having saturated color in a world that could often appear drab. I feel a freer expression of joy and love, curiosity, experimenting, the deep trust and feeling of home. The feeling like what I’m doing in the world is simply a natural extension of who I am… I so appreciate our partnership in inquiry: the ability to both bring about structure when helpful and to flow with what’s present. I would completely recommend your work to others because you rock!  Thank you! What a difference a year makes! You’re like the midwife of my soul, how could I ever thank you enough?

“I truly respect and admire this woman and can’t imagine how anyone can impact the world without her.”

I’ve had the pure pleasure of working with Holly on embedding my business in purpose. New, more soulful ideas have been arising in me for some years now. But I didn’t quite trust myself to carry them out. Holly has worked with me on seeing how a sense of purpose will guide me and show up in my future. And her work has just ignited within me – so much so that I woke up in the middle of the night with THE IDEA that will carry my business forward. Not only that, Holly has helped me see how to frame the work, through her encouragement and responsiveness. After struggling mightily to create a great line (think elevator speech) for my new work, it just flowed out of me one morning as I woke up. That’s how deep her work goes. I truly respect and admire this woman and can’t imagine how anyone can impact the world without her.

“Holly is a brilliant, multidimensional wizard. She has a way of diving oceans-deep for the gems not visible else-wise.”

Earlier this year, I came to an impasse. I knew I had a plethora of gifts for the world, but I wasn’t sure about which form they should take next. Or why so few of my conceptual “babies” had birthed. I had heard of life purpose coaches, but brushed them off–after all, I knew my purpose. Or did I? If I were so sure, how come my next path of action persisted in eluding me?

I don’t sign on with very many practitioners, because frankly, I don’t find that they bring enough depth, strength, nor raw intelligence to wrangle with all that I bring to the table. Enter Dr. Holly Woods.

Holly is a brilliant, multidimensional wizard. She has a way of diving oceans-deep for the gems not visible else-wise. She also doesn’t let me get away with the unconscious and embarrassingly elaborate ruses I use to distract and deceive myself–ruses that would derail Muggles. She’s not afraid to speak hard truths, and offers soft places to land while I absorb them. She also has one of the most impressive and effective toolboxes of any practitioner I have ever met. Her deep and passionate relationship to the poetic and mythical aspects of the human journey have nourished my soul. I feel seen, understood, and supported. Since working with Holly, I have dropped deeper into my sense of why I am here and what I am doing.

“I embraced parts of myself that I had previously experienced as challenges.”

Working with Holly in a personalized and individualized way has been a true gift for me. Her unique combination of skills and traits (such as her professionalism, guidance, intuition, humor, sensitivity, deep love & care) and the invitations and stretches she extended to me during our work together helped me to gain more clarity and to integrate more deeply my commitment to my Soul Purpose. 

While working with Holly, I gained significant insights and embraced more fully parts of myself that I had previously experienced as challenges, such as my high sensitivity. I am trusting that life “requires” me to take up more space and express ‘my voice’ to share the uniqueness of my purpose. I also made a deeper conscious commitment of “Loyalty to my Soul” than ever before. I know and trust that the messages and creativity that come to me are rich and unique. And I am feeling safer to share more of myself with others, while maintaining healthy boundaries. 

Through our work together, some parts of my purpose were confirmed and I gained clarity about aspects that I was not yet aware of. Holly’s insights helped me to tap into the nuance of the gifts I contribute that are unique to me that I must share with others.

“I am braver, more able to challenge myself and believe I have the capacity to move beyond my small self.”

I am getting more skilled at living my purpose each day, person by person. I’ve come to know that the gift of ‘Deep Presence’ is an unusual awareness and capacity that I bring to the world that is powerful, impactful and can change the world.

While I was still suffering some bouts of depression when we began our work, I don’t anymore. I feel much braver, more able to challenge myself and believe I have the capacity to hold my inner world competently. I am much more able to see my ego and stand apart from it. I am at peace with more of who I am, which enables me to let go of my persona and be content, rather than constantly trying to defend or maintain my small self. It’s miraculous and beautiful.

I would totally recommend you to others because you are client centred, and intuitively guided me. You are at a point in your development where you have a very wide and inclusive perspective. You are warm and compassionate and dang you never seem to drop the ball ever! You catch the smallest seemingly insignificant things that come through and unwrap the gems hidden there. You are just such a pleasure to be with; every time we met I felt lifted and expanded in ways that no one else can offer. I think the best thing is that you are able to show me space to Be, to Live that no one else can. You model or inhabit that space with such grace and I am drawn into higher perspectives and evolution without even knowing it. You’re so beautiful.

As a result of working with Holly to clarify my gifts and purpose, I have a much deeper sense of myself and what I am to do and be in my retirement years. She was able to uncover some resistance and blind spots that kept me from sharing my capacity, and she patiently guided me to have insight about and overcome them. I am now writing again- stories, essays, songs – and am open to new experiences of myself and with other people. Among her gifts, she is profoundly intuitive and capable of reading people at an energetic level so that she can guide them more effectively. I would recommend her to anyone who is not sure of what they are doing with their life because she can help them see themselves with much greater clarity. I feel deeply seen, which is so nourishing for me. Her skills are prodigious!

“Holly’s skills are remarkable and effective. She was able to hone in on exactly what needed healing, and helped me to bolster the tattered and frayed aspects that remained in my psyche.”

When I met Holly, I was struggling with self worth and becoming visible, at the tail end of a healing journey from a great deal of prolonged traumatic experiences.  I felt I was ready to step into the world in a bigger way in helping women to claim their own worth and gifts and I felt I needed to address the final dregs of my resistance, release whatever trauma was left in my energy body, and step into my life and new business in a confident and emboldened way.  Holly’s skills are remarkable and effective.  She was able to hone in on exactly what needed healing, and helped me to bolster the tattered and frayed aspects that remained in my psyche. 

I left our calls rejuvenated, refreshed, and optimistic and a forever believer in the power of coaching and energy work when performed properly with compassion and dedication, as Holly does. I have been able to build on the foundation that Holly catalyzed in me, and am a wholly different person from when she first met me. Today my confidence in myself is unshakeable, I have a level of optimism that was unfathomable a few short years ago, and she introduced me to my Future Self who is a vibrant ascended Master Healer – a vision I hold for myself in reverence. 

My entire life philosophy has changed as she has connected me to a part of myself that is Whole, Complete, and stunningly beautiful in all of its human imperfection. This energetic connection has become the foundation of the work that I am bringing into the world through my business – a level of clarity that I did not have before I met her.

Holly came in at a critical period of reorganization for the company.
