Phone and Skype Coaching

Get in touch with me through the ‘Contact’ page with the subject line: ‘Phone Consultation’, for your FREE 20 minute phone, or Skype coaching session.

After your first initial call with me, you can decide whether you’d like to continue the service, or not. If you plan to continue the service, I will then discuss with you my hourly rate and then start planning a proper lifestyle protocol dedicated to your goals.

No matter your current situation, I am here to listen and provide guidance and feedback for your goals in your recovery and wellness.

Public Speaking

I am currently providing public speaking services to ages 14 and up. My speeches require a strong-headed audience since I delve into topics regarding my past (1979 Iranian revolution) when I was captured and incarcerated in several Iranian prisons for the duration of four years and tortured, as well as kept in solitary confinement against my free will.

The focus of my speeches are not to scare people, but rather bring awareness to my audience about how they can also break through their OWN adversity and build a healthier lifestyle for their future.

My past speeches have been mainly held in Vancouver Island, at schools such as Brentwood College, Francis Kelsey and Cowichan Secondary.

If you would like to bring me in to do a speech for your students, staff or organization, contact me here with the subject line: ‘Public Speaking’ and from there we can discuss further details such as date, time, location, my rates and so forth.
