Apryl is a phenomenal coach!

She knows her stuff and cares deeply about her clients. Thanks to my work with Apryl, I’ve made progress on some big goals that have languished on the back burner for years. Thank you, Apryl!”


Working with Apryl has been a great experience!

I think that the biggest thing that has impacted me has been the consistent reminders via emails, texts, Voxer messages, am/pm forms – they help me progress on my goals. I really wanted consistency in my life with my language learning, diet and expercise and I now feel that it has become pretty much second nature to find opportunities to accomplish these goals. They are constantly on my mind, and so I am able to accomplish them. I think this program is helpful for anyone looking to make progress in any area of their lives, anyone looking for help when they are not sure what exactly motivates them, anyone looking for support when they get stuck. I think the speed of the process depends on the person trying to accomplish the goals and how much effort is put in…I have been slower probably than most and being ok with that is a big deal, but I am moving a LOT faster than before! That makes me so happy!”


Transparent stories and thought-provoking questions!

I started reading Apryl’s book on a flight home and couldn’t put it down. I’m a “recovering self-help addict” who is at a point where I’m focused on figuring out MY way to fully show up in the world. I’m over “experts” telling me what to do so I really appreciate that there were no “how-tos” and just Apryl sharing her personal experience with questions along the way to help you dig deep. She was wonderfully transparent. There were so many moments in this book where I exclaimed “Me too!” and highlighted passages so I could go back and do the work when I wasn’t 30K feet in the air. I’m the type who does discovery by taking in a lot, and then experimenting with what resonates the most. I’m an outward processor too, primarily through journaling, and the only thing I would have liked is a chapter filled with all the questions in one spot so I don’t have to go back and search through my bookmarks. That said, most “coaching” books don’t leave me inspired but this one did. Her focus on FUN and EFFICIENCY really resonated. Thanks for writing this!”


My session with Apryl was amazing.

It seemed to last for a long time and I felt I gained helpful insight right off the bat. Apryl is a good listener as well as good at making sure her client understand what she is talking about. Her ideas are “outside the box” and gave me a completely different way of looking at something than I ever would have. I highly recommend Apryl because she’s organized, well-informed, well-trained in her field and honest. She is not judgemental and very easy to talk with. The most important thing to know about Apryl is you can count on her to respond quickly to emails. She’s a great coach! ”


I found Apryl really easy to talk to.

It felt like she really understood what my problems were, and was able to ask the searching questions to help me focus on what I need to do next. I finished our session with an initial plan of action and even though it was late Friday night (due to being in different continents!) I felt really energised and determined to succeed! I would definitely recommend Apryl to anyone who feels like they need guidance on setting and achieving their goals.”


Working with Apryl has been a gift.

Her enthusiasm is infectious. Apryl’s encouraging approach to problem solving and her positive, can-do attitude is both empowering and joy inspiring! She is warm, sincere, dedicated and gifted with both experience and the expertise to take you to your next level of accomplishment. Definitely true to her word she delivers on having tons of fun while getting things done. I’m deeply grateful for the time I’ve had with her and can sincerely assure you that she is committed to you achieving excellence in anything you set out to do. Who doesn’t want a coach like that?”


Apryl is an energetic and empathetic listener.

I enjoyed her energy and enthusiasm while assisting me through some growing pains both personally and professionally. I walked away from our conversation with some concrete strategies to implement right away. She is willing to meet the needs of individuals where they are and where they want to be.”


I felt heard and was reminded that I’m not alone in my challenges with time management and work-life balance.

In speaking with Apryl, I was pleasantly surprised to feel that I actually have all of the answers within me, I just needed some support and guidance to clarify my priorities, pinpoint areas of opportunity, and lay out a potential plan for improving daily habits. This felt empowering! Apryl helped me to view and approach my patterns from a different perspective: Instead of self-criticism and resistance, how can I better work with how I am and have always been? By making certain personal aspects of my life “non-negotiable,” I’ll have to use my work time more wisely. It’s important to know that Apryl is not just going to lay it all out on a “silver platter” and tell you what to do. 😉 Since change comes from within, it’s best that you have at least a basic level of self-awareness and understanding of your pain points, as well as the willingness and dedication to try something different, knowing that you’ll have a kind and caring support system behind you to guide and help hold you accountable as you shift into a more balanced and fulfilling lifestyle! I’d recommend Apryl’s services to anyone who feels frustrated with how they spend their days and who feels that they’re not achieving their goals how and when they want.”


Apryl is a time management genius!

I felt safe and secure and well-cared for. Apryl took detailed notes and honed in on what I felt was gibberish, and now I feel much more organized and I have a clear path forward of things I need to do. And I also feel more confident in making better priorities! I would absolutely recommend Apryl to any of my friends or family that need more assistance with organizing their lives and having more fun and joy in their lives!”


I started using Apryl’s services because I needed to make some life changes.

She has the ability to see the whole picture and has helped focus my energy on tasks that move me closer to my goals. She is accessible, supportive, and attentive to my needs. She does a great job of getting me to those “AHA” moments and pointing out patterns in my life that have brought me to where I am. Apryl has a knack for really digging in and helping me find what is hindering my progress and what adjustments I need to make in order to move forward. Her energy is infectious and I feel ready to take on the world after each of our sessions.”


Apryl helped me identify a key next step in preparing for the next phase of my life.

I reexamined my values and how I am living them and also discovered that several key values have changed over time. Now I can move on with better planning for leaving full-time employment and shifting to the next phase of my career as my 69th birthday approaches.”


I am filled with inspiration and excitement at the fact I’ve accomplished so much since I started working with Apryl!

Not only have I crossed off some major goals off my list I feel as though with her guidance I can tackle the even bigger dreams I could never seem to conquer on my own.”


I was referred to The Cheerful Mind by a close friend when I was trying to figure out my next step professionally.

I wanted to explore my career path, personal interests, and the best way to bridge the two. Apryl was inspirational, helpful, and focused. I enjoyed our sessions together—she truly listened to my thoughts, ideas, and concerns. She made each conversation meaningful and guided our discussions to help me figure out what I wanted and how to attain success. She contributed greatly – with a mix of life stories, resources, homework ideas, and takeaways to reflect on. I’m so thankful to have spent time with Apryl, ended up on a wonderful career path, and will connect with her again on future life steps.”


This was my first experience working with a coach, Apryl made it easy to work with her.

I needed help around organizing the launch of a new business while still working. My life was jammed and I was overwhelmed, Apryl kept me focused, offered resources and read countless content versions. The fear melted away. Apryl offered valuable insight; she was always genuine and professional, and I’m grateful. Thanks Apryl!”
