"Tricia has given me
a priceless gift
the gift of personal empowerment and for that I remain eternally grateful."
— Deb Smyth, Ph.D.
I wholeheartedly recommend Tricia de Beer as an extraordinary Life Coach and guide. Through my work with Tricia and the Immunity to Change process, I was able to untangle some long-held assumptions (many of which I didn’t even realize were at play) that were impeding my ability to make progress on goals that were very important to me. I never felt as though I was being forced into a rigid, “one size fits all” process. Through Tricia’s insight, creativity, patience and encouragement, she wove the process expertly into our work together.
I’ve worked closely with Tricia for three years in two different settings. She was the interim priest for two years at the Crossing, the emerging church community at the Cathedral. Tricia replaced the beloved founding priest, whose loss was deeply felt. Tricia was both exceptionally patient and gently provocative, helping the community see their own strengths and also how their structure could be improved to better serve their needs. As convener for a peer supervisory group Tricia provides a perfect blend of structure and flexibility. I always feel as though our conversation will be focused and helpful, but not so constrained as to limit important questions or concerns. Tricia’s gifts are clear.
I have had the delight of working with Tricia for five years. She has worked as a life coach for me as the Executive Director of a small faith-based organization and of the facilitative leaders who are working with five of our intentional communities. Tricia is inspired and deeply committed in her quest for her own and other’s transformation. She is a skillful listener and coach and has the right balance of deep listening, inquiry and direction that has helped me to grow our organization to an impactful network of spiritual activists. She also has helped me to see limiting patterns that have opened me to more effective and joyful ways of leading. She is a skillful Executive Coach, Facilitator, and Trainer.
I was privileged to have the Rev. Tricia de Beer as my life coach on the Immunity to change journey. It’s been eight months since our journey ended but the changes that this experience brought about have remained. This process was not an easy one, as I had some pretty painful assumptions about myself and the world around me. I would not have been able to do this work without the sense of safety that Tricia’s groundedness, wisdom, skill and compassion brought to the process. At the same time, I was always helped to see what I had accomplished and held accountable for what I continued to avoid. In some areas of my life I feel as if I have cleared some real hurdles and am free to move on. In other areas I continue to be challenged by some “Big Assumptions.” Fortunately, I now have the tools to overturn my immunity to change. Rev. de Beer has given me a priceless gift, the gift of personal empowerment and for that I remain eternally grateful. I have no doubt that anyone who is committed to make change in their life will benefit greatly from working with Tricia.
I have had the pleasure of working with Tricia de Beer for the past six years in a variety of contexts. Tricia has served as a performance coach, a group facilitator and a board member for an organization of which I was the Executive Director and Co-Founder, Tatua Kenya. In each of these settings Tricia has offered a level of insight that provided me and/or the group with clarity and direction.My most recent work with Tricia was when she served as a board member for Tatua Kenya. As a nascent organization Tatua Kenya needed leadership that lent a critical yet encouraging eye. Tricia offered just that. She had the courage to speak up about her observations about challenges the organization was facing, even when that created some tension on the board. Tricia’s guidance enabled the organization to tighten our focus and maintain productivity in the face of challenge. I’m grateful for her leadership.
