Client Testimonials

Coaching with Ed is like speaking with a good friend who will help you find and be that better version of yourself, help you find the way to have the life that you already know you want. If you are in any way curious, get in touch with him. I have not felt more confident, more energised, more productive, more focused and happier in many years – if ever. How I do life now, is how it always should have been. The struggles of the past seem a thousand miles away.

I had gone as far as I could by myself, and I was in desperate need of help. Ed showed up just as an opportunity to move forward in my life presented itself. Ed was willing to take the time to build rapport between us. I always appreciated his willingness to empower me to set my own goals, despite them being small in many cases, and meet me where I am without telling me what my goals should be. We made significant and exponential progress on my goals, he pressed me to dig a little deeper. It s been a rewarding experience, and I m grateful for that.

My experience with Brown Bear Coaching was extremely successful. It has been the best money I have ever spent.

My personal coach Ed, was very knowledgeable, extremely supportive and most importantly, was very honest. He basically assisted me to “dodge a bullet” in the outcome I reached as a result of my coaching. Ed was very skillful in actually getting me to arrive at my own decision, which was the best outcome. He helped me to build a “toolbox” of strategies and skills to assist and guide me through the situation I was in. I have been successful in now using these strategies to make me a better person and succeed moving forward in my journey.

I’m newly out in the gay community, coming from a very complex, controlling religious background. Ed was very supportive in taking all this into consideration with how he coached me. I’d seriously recommend everyone in a gay relationship, wherever they are on the “relationship journey” to add brown Bear Coaching into your budget. You will never regret it.

Brown Bear Coaching was exactly the tool I needed to open the door towards my future of living life as my best, authentic self.

I’ve done the work in the past, a lot of work:  therapy, books, podcasts, and more.  Working with Ed was what I needed to help me realize that I am the one responsible for making my own happiness.

I’ve recently made a lot of big changes in my life.  Even making just one of these changes might be “terrifying” to another person.  I did several of those things all at the same time.  Was it easy?  No.  Was it worth it?  Absolutely!

I am now happier than I have been in a long time.  I recognize that I’ve had happiness in the past, and I’m not negating its existence.  My feeling now is significantly different.  My happiness is pure, authentic, and effortless.  It starts from my core, deep inside my soul.  It’s also a new type of armor that I’ve never had before.  In the past, I was afraid of facing difficulty.  Now I know that I have the ability to stop, take a breath, go inward to reflect on the lessons I’ve learned, and take action to make life happen.

I feel physically different.  The tension in my body and brain have now relaxed.  I now feel that the thoughts in my head and the feelings in my heart are in sync.  That feeling makes me proud to know that I act with integrity.  I walk the walk, and I talk the talk.  That behavior is arguably the most important factor in creating and maintaining peace and happiness.

Thank you, Ed.  I’m eager to face what each new day in life brings my way with a smile on my face and a smile in my heart — and a happy little bear to remind me that I am successful at just being me, exactly as I am.


Los Angeles, USA

I had tried a couple of life coaches before and given it away because I felt they just didn’t get me.

After a few sessions with Ed I was feeling that this was just the same old stuff but then (I think it was our third time) something clicked and I never looked back. Ed’s questioning enabled me to look at the underlying reasons for the self-sabotage in my relationships, the reasons behind some of my anxieties and that I had the inner strength to change these behaviours. But most of all he gave me the courage to come out of the closet to my friends and kids and to just be myself in public.

After 9 sessions, I’m now feeling confident and comfortable with myself in a way that I’ve never felt in my entire life. I’m learning to love myself and to give my love unconditionally to others. I’ve NEVER felt happier. I’m on my way to being the best version of me, I can’t thank Ed enough.


A Small Town in Australia

When I approached Ed at Brown Bear Coaching I was looking for help in getting more out of my intimate relationships and finding the right partner for me, but I ended up getting so much more. We tackled issues of self-worth and self-love and my overall confidence has never been higher. Ed was a fun, honest, and easy to talk to Coach with a clear indication from Day 1 that the sessions would not go on forever as I should have all the tools to do the inner work myself by session 10. And we got there just shy of that! Amazing business and probably the best thing I have done for myself in years.


Melbourne, Australia

What I wanted from coaching was non-biased guidance on how to turn my goals into actionable things and figure out if I have the resources to do so.

The best thing that happened was he gave me an idea to pursue a personal goal and I actually saw results the next week. It has given me the courage to continue pursuing it and learning from myself what I really want out of life. I’ve gotten so much out of my conversations with Edward.

This service would be great for anyone; people who want to dive deeper into their goals and future wants or anyone who wants to talk to someone that isn’t already in their circle of friends/family so you can speak openly and be vulnerable.


California, USA

When I first met Ed I was at standstill and not enjoying life. He is funny and caring and wants the best for each of his clients. Through the 10 sessions I learnt techniques like how to be still and in the moment allows me to be calm and stay focused on the task at hand – not get side tracked or avoiding the problem. I dealt with finances by accepting and acknowledging my financial situation and creating my first budget. Another way Ed helped me was learning to like myself and my body. I m now at the stage of almost a 10. I feel like a different person and I feel so much lighter. So what are you waiting for? If you want to improve your life get in touch with Ed and his team today.
