Orest Zwozdesky, ACC
Director at Large
director@edmontoncoaches.com

After more than a decade of work in corrections and counselling environments Orest was compelled to find a system that supported clients in moving out of ‘story’ and limited self-perception to one that was fresh, innovative and empowering. In 2004 he was exposed to coaching for the first time and with its focus on human potential and high level impact, it was ‘love at first sight.’ In 2006, Orest received his coaching certification through Erickson Coaching International and has never looked back.

Orest is a visionary leader and dynamic coach with over 10 years of experience supporting clients in creating transformative results –personally, professionally and at a community level. Of Metis – Cree ancestry, he is deeply involved in Indigenous traditions and uses many of these teachings (e.g. holistic practice, respect for all beings and 7 generation impact) to guide his coaching practice. Orest uses a heart-centered approach, sourced in deep presence to create a sacred space for his clients to safely explore obstacles, limiting beliefs and negative ties keeping them from attaining the results they desire.

Orest is credentialed through ICF and has trained in numerous modalities, recently receiving his master level certification in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).  He uses tools such as guided visualization, Appreciative Inquiry, Deep PEAT processing, hypnotic induction and belief re-patterning to support his clients in overcoming challenges/limitations to create stunning results. Orest works with values-driven professionals to help them create and sustain deeply satisfying personal and professional relationships, compelling visions, high levels of joy, gratitude and self-appreciation and maximum levels of self-care/balance, while attaining remarkable business and monetary success.
