I believe coaching is about making a difference in people’s lives. It’s about building trusting relationships.
The bonus is the feeling I get when I hear back from a client telling me that since we’ve met, their life has completely changed! That is what drives me, that’s what I live for: inspiring and empowering others to take the leap of faith into the unknown to transform their lives. These are just a few quotes that my clients have shared:
Hello, recovery friends, and new visitors, I almost forgot to “invite” all of you to view my good friend, Melissa Killeen’s recovery and coaching blog. She is an “expert” recovery coach that knows how to help others with addiction problems. She “shares hope” with others, like I try to do here on my own Recovery Blog.

Melissa Killeen is very good at getting to the bottom line quickly. She was able to encourage me to identify my goals and implement the steps to achieve them. For the first time in my executive business career I feel like a leader on the right course and I believe that I will continue to consult with Melissa as my business continues to grow.

I want to thank you for all you do for me as my coach. I know you are always there for me. I appreciate all the time and energy you take to share with me. Life is full of surprises. Who would have thought you would become such an important person in my life.

You are my most important sounding board. As a gay man, I have come to respect your flexibility and understanding of my sexuality, my trials, tribulations and most of all, my goals. You shared joy in my triumphs, and you got me out of my doldrums. Having you in my corner has built my ability to be in balance, to be intimate with others, as well communicate clearly my needs and wants. You are a gift in my life as well as an indispensable part of my world.

As a therapist, I found it difficult to come to grips with my sex addiction. I thought I had to be perfect. But I had these hidden secrets. You never shamed me for my secrets. You were there for me every day, whether I wanted to talk to you or not. You allowed me to do one of the most difficult things I could ever have done, disclose my addiction to my spouse. As, you predicted, my life did not fall apart, it improved. You were indispensable to me, and I wholeheartedly recommend you to all of my clients seeking help in recovering from their addictions.

You gave me the chance to re-build my life. After I left the treatment center, you were there. I had a feeling I could trust you on the airplane ride home when you handed me your brush, and suggested I brush my hair before we disembarked to see my family again. I had serious bed head, but I didn’t need to worry about how I looked back in treatment, and I didn’t care what I looked like when I was loaded. But now, in the sober world, I needed to grasp what things needed to be back in my life (like self care and hair care) and what things needed to be out of my life (like drugs and alcohol). You continued to give me gentle nudges for the next 100 days. Can you believe it!? I have been sober for 100 days! I love you!

From the very first session with Melissa, I knew this was the right executive coach for me. Her ability to empower me to go from talking about my dreams and aspirations to actually forming a tangible roadmap to accomplish them was amazing. Since working with Melissa I have a new understanding of what it means to be confident and assertive, to no longer let fear stand in the way of my success. Melissa has become my most valuable asset and provider of crucial insight. I am now enrolled, working towards my degree, starting my internship in 4 months from now, being flooded with clients as a recovery coach and have just purchased my new website domain, www.therecoverycoach.com which is, as we speak, being developed. Thank you Melissa, for all you do. You are amazing and I would not be where I am today if not for you! I highly recommend to anyone serious about taking their career to the next level to contact Melissa Killeen.!
