Sometimes it's the simple things that can make the biggest shifts in our lives, sometimes it's not. The most important thing is being aware of the things that shape our patterns of thinking, our habits and our actions in the first place.

As a health, life and happiness coach for over 6 years, Evan has worked with people of all ages and backgrounds to break down barriers that prevent them from living full, vibrant and engaged lives. As an advocate and student for meaningful, interesting, holistic and playful lives, Evan uses the principles of mindfulness, positive psychology, emotional intelligence and self-awareness to drive positive shifts in our habits, thinking and behaviours.

Evan believes in being an example first and foremost. He doesn't believe in telling people to do things that he hasn't done or setting unattainable expectations. He has been greatly shaped by his former hedonistic lifestyle trapped in sex, drugs, alcohol, parties and unhealthy consumption and his experience of turning that all around in a little hut at a Buddhist monastery. In his experiences with his monk brother, Evan learned how to slow down, using the tools of meditation (walking, sitting, standing, eating, body-scans, feeling the body, breath-work), sharing (& deep-listening), self-awareness, curiosity and self-expression, introspection, gratitude, kindness, empathy, compassion and play, tools he still turns to today. His drive is to share his experiences with people of all ages so that they may be free to live their best, healthiest and happiest lives.

Evan's coaching style is highly personalized and can be adapted for various lifestyles, goals, and budgets. Sliding scales available and first 30 minute exploratory session is free.

Evan taught me a range of techniques and simple practices that made the very difficult transition to life after football a lot easier. Evan’s calm, positive and supportive (and happy) nature helped me, and continue to help me, navigate the challenges of life while learning to enjoy the simple, and important, things that are easy to forget. Coming from someone who has had a lot of coaches, I couldn’t recommend Evan enough

Evan has been my life coach for some time now and he has been a solid partner through this period of my life. He’s an attentive and patient listener and has provided me with many helpful insights and guidance throughout our work together. I would recommend him to anyone feeling lost or unsettled who would like a calming voice in their corner.
