    I had reached a point in my life where I needed some help in figuring out my priorities between work, family and community. I knew that I wanted to find someone who shared a belief that we were put on this earth for a purpose. I found Christoph and he has been a marvelous coach in helping me look honestly at myself and what I wanted to make of my life. He is been both supportive and challenging and has held me accountable for my decisions.
    Thanks to him I have begun to focus more of my time and energy on things that really matter and to giving back to our community. For those of you looking for a personal coach, I heartily recommend Christoph!

    I can’t even stress in words how vital and life changing working with Christoph has been!! This man is amazing and has been such a key factor in my success this year. I am in sales and this past year was my first year in management and I knew it was going to be a challenge. I am constantly approached by Business Coaches, Life Coaches, etc and I have tried out several different companies/people and not once been happy with the service. To be quite honest, I didn’t even think I needed a coach for my professional or personal life….until I met Christoph.

    I was very skeptical at first due to my previous experience, but the biggest thing that got my attention was that his first session was complimentary. I have never been offered that before and after one session with him I was certain he was the right coach for me. The work I have done with Christoph has improved my performance at work, strengthened my relationship with my spouse, created “free” time to do the things that make me happy and I am more profitable and successful in my career than I ever have been out of the 10 years I have been with my company. So much so, that I brought him in for a seminar with my team in October and that resulted in my team’s production increasing 4x over!!

    I am currently the #1 manager for the entire Bay Area within my company and I would’ve never made it here without Christoph. He helped make my first year in management a great success and really helped me with my personal relationships so I can be profitable at work and happy at home. I am so grateful to have him as my coach and strongly suggest that anyone considering coaching meet with him first.

    I can’t express to you how beneficial it was just in my very first session with Christoph, Life Coach! He said I’d probably have some ah-hah! moments, and I definitely did!

    Christoph helped me put things into perspective when creating my schedule. I was about to schedule a monthly date night and he was quick to ask why monthly? No, make it weekly. He reminded me not to put my relationship on the back burner, which is so easy to do. He helped calm me down and not feel so overwhelmed; I was able to go home that night and sit down with my boyfriend and create an entire repeating weekly schedule with relative ease, fitting everything in with ample space and timing, making sure no aspect of our lives was neglected or harriedly crammed in one day. I already had chores/baby/work/school figured out on the weekly calendar, but not the other important things like adding date night, spiritual reflection, down-time, alone-time, exercise, etc.

    He helped me with keeping boundaries in place, combating negative thoughts, keeping motivation and easing stress and overwhelm from adjusting to being a parent to a new baby and running my own business while my boyfriend was working and going to school, both full-time.

    He asked questions, listened, made wise and sound suggestions, followed-up and continues to follow-up through his motivational emails. I follow him on Facebook, too. And he’s available by phone and text. He always responds right away too. I really appreciate Christoph’s help, and I strongly recommend everyone meet him–he might just change your life!

    I first met Christoph Nauer when he spoke at my church at the beginning of 2012.

    His presentation was excellent ! I could not take notes fast enough when he was sharing some very motivating tools on how to improve the quality of life. He covered areas such as setting short and long term goals and offering tangible ways to achieve them. He offered tips on how to organize ourselves in such as way that we would find more meaning and joy in our lives. These are just a few of the gifts that he can offer as a life coach. One of my desires is to find more peace, harmony, and balance in my life. My lack of taking time for myself has resulted in some health issues, which finally caught up with me. This is what FINALLY caught my attention….when the body said HALT! Christoph came at a time in my life when I realized that I needed to make some changes. A few days after his presentation, I made an appointment to talk with him, and made the decision to hire him to be my life coach.

    We have met weekly for 6 months now and I can see where I am gradually letting go of obstacles that get in my way. As long as I can remember I procrastinated filing our income tax returns on time. This year,, I had them in by mid-March, due to Christoph’s encouragement.

    I highly recommend Christoph to anyone who, like me, have spent most of my life feeling as though I was on a treadmill; seldom taking time to enjoy all that life has to offer. Thanks to Christoph, I am weaving in some time for fun, rest, gardening, (which I love to do) and gradually making progress in my areas of procrastination. Ironically, I am a perfectionist, which often times leads to procrastination. I have been inundated with paperwork all of my adult life and I dislike doing it, but know it is part of life. I am practicing some of the tools I have learned from Christoph and moving forward.

    I believe that to live an abundant life we need a balance of spirituality and emotional and physical well being. Christoph is an encourager in all those very vital areas. In Gratitude for YOU, Christoph!


  • from Rachel A., Oakland, CA on 21 Feb 2016

    I strongly recommend Christoph for anyone who needs guidance on managing their lives, whether it’s getting more from your daily grind or making big, life-changing decisions. He does a great of job of addressing all aspects of one’s life–career, relationships, personal goals, and more. Christoph is easy to talk to and provides a lot of insight both directly and through the homework he assigns.
    With Christoph’s help I have made great strides moving my life in the direction I want (working normal hours, giving back to the community, buying a house…woohoo!). I believe that anyone who works with Christoph would benefit greatly from his coaching.


  • from Atony E., New York on 03 Jan 2016

    Something needed to change in my life and I wanted practical help. I decided to look for a life coach and I found Christoph. Christoph’s mixture of grounded practical guidance, with a strong connection to the philosophical and spiritual, was just what I needed to get back on track. I’ve learned how to manage my time, how to find more balance in my life, how to be patient with myself, how to value myself and my achievements, how to think more positively, how to think about who and what I want to be, and how to get there. I’m a happier person. My life has changed more in the last 18 months than it did in a long time. And it continues to change now as I feel more able to take risks, manage my time, and recognize the many things in my life that I’m grateful for. What more can I ask for?
    Thanks Christoph!!


  • from Elvina Lui on 25 Sep 2015

    I highly recommend Christoph’s coaching, as it was immensely helpful for both my business as well as my personal life.

    I had been struggling with balancing my life and time, because my business is new and I have been wanting to do so many different marketing efforts at once–re-vamping my whole website, networking in person, writing articles for my website and to get published, preparing for a workshop I am giving, and my personal/social life.

    I felt like I never had enough time or energy to do all the things I set out to do.
    Christoph helped me by helping me re-examine my goals and my approach, helped me see that I have been over extending myself in certain areas.
    He also taught me a lot of practical ways that would help me stay on track with my goals, how to structure my to-do list, how to plan out my day in detail.
    Christoph is compassionate and supportive in a genuine way that was very encouraging for me. I loved working with him and have really benefited ever since.

    I e-mailed him to let him know that I am much more productive and feel better about things ever since he helped me figure out my time management.
    Thank you Christoph :)

  • from Teresa Zocchi on 09 Sep 2015

    Christoph has been a tremendous help to me, helping to implement appropriate time management skills to my lifestyle. Learning to adhere to time blocking was something I heard about in my business, but never paid much attention. Raising four teenagers and having my own business, this has helped me to have more time with family as well as some down time. Pushing me to schedule time off was the best thing ever. I am able to grow my team with his support, as well. I recommend Christoph to anyone who needs help with life’s balancing act!

  • from Rick Silva “The Referral Coach” on 01 Jun 2015

    Christoph and I have been working together for a number of months now. I tend to get laser focused on work and forget to stop and smell the roses. I sometimes go many days without taking a day off and sometimes my diet and health suffer because of it. Christoph helps me remember that there is more to life than just work. I have been taking my vitamins more often and going on a lot more hikes than I use to. Christoph’s background in the ministry helps make him non judgmental and he is very easy to talk to. If you are looking for more balance and less stress in your life I highly recommend talking to Christoph.

  • from Marcella Trujillo on 30 Apr 2015

    Christoph has been my coach for over 6 months now. Due to his help my personal life and business life has improved substantially. I have a happy, loving and understanding relationship, my business is doing very well and I have happy clients and I feel I am leading a more fulfilling life because of the help and guidance Christoph has given me. I don’t feel guilty for taking time off now, I am taking more vacations this year then I ever have before and my income has gone up!

    I am more happy and peaceful and have found more time to do life fulfilling activities. Christoph is a great communicator and has great techniques to help you through the challenges life brings. I highly recommend Christoph to the busy professional who has lost the “LIFE” from their life! Thank you Christoph!

  • from Katie (Lafayette) on 17 Mar 2015

    Christoph’s Life Coaching is positive and forward moving. Because of his confidence in my ability to choose and act on a life giving path, he insists on finding that thing which I am passionate. His guidance is practical, wise and seeks to lead to health and wholeness. His gentle approach allows me the comfort to see clearly what needs to be addressed and his encouragement is genuine and spirit-filled. This is no confusion about what it is I can do to achieve my goals.


  • from Raph (Walnut Creek) on 04 Mar 2015

    Christoph knew how to ask the right questions while pursuing paths meaningful to me as a client. I found him sensitive, non-threatening, and comfortable to be with. He knew how to engage me in the issues I brought up to him and his wise counsel left me feeling hat the sessions were both useful and beneficial. I would recommend him not only for this competence but for the sincere concern he had for me as a his client. Thank you for the privilege of recommending him to you at this time.


  • from Terri (Lafayette) on 11 Feb 2015

    Life Coaching is distinctive from therapy in that it looks forward and is very practical. Working with Christoph has helped frame my life in such a way that I can approach my work in a context that meets my needs both professionally and personally. His practical and gentle approach, the insight and practices that he offers combined with his own professional background create a mix that works for me because, I also like to bring my own values to my job and to everything I do. I learned to look at things in different ways, and commit to tasks and methods that will help me move forward. I can see my work in a way that is dynamic and of my shaping. I’m learning to ask for what I want.
