Client Testimonials




Here's what some of my clients have to say.

Linda has truly helped change my life! I was introduced through the PCOS Diva JumpStart Program. After completing the JumpStart program, I wanted more and was looking for someone to work with me one on one. With the Program founder Amy not taking on any personal coaching clients, she referred me to Linda. All I can say is that this was the best thing that could have happened to me. Linda is awesome! She has extensive knowledge of PCOS which is great because that is what I needed but she has so much more to offer than just support in this area. In the past, I have only looked at my diet and exercise as the reason why I am not losing weight or happy with my body. While Linda addresses these issues, she helped me look at my life as a whole and helped me realize that I was overcommitted, tired and constantly stressed out. While I knew this subconsciously, she was able to point this out and help me come up with a plan on how to slowly fix/address these issues. While it is still a work in progress, I can’t thank her enough for helping me through this all while making me feel better about myself and teaching me the importance of loving yourself and your body.

As I live in California and Linda lives in Wisconsin, all of our coaching has been completed over the phone and through e-mail. Linda is punctual, responsive and easily adapted our sessions based on what I needed at that time. In addition, if I had questions that she did not know the answers to or wanted to do more research (i.e. recipe options, supplements, stress relief programs), she researched them and got back to me quickly. The information and resources she has provided to me have been incredible. I have gained a lifelong friend, advocate and resource in Linda. I highly recommend Linda to anyone that is looking for help in any aspect of their life – you will not be disappointed!

I first met Linda when my employer hired her to present a stress management session to our group of managers and supervisors. Linda shared her story about how she became a health coach and while doing so she talked about her daughter and the struggles she had with PCOS. Immediately, my ears perked up and I sat up a little taller. I had been diagnosed with PCOS in 2002, at the age of 22. At that time (and countless times since then) I attempted to learn more about PCOS but could not find reliable, knowledgeable and sympathetic people to talk to about it. I forced myself to accept the fact that I had PCOS and there was nothing I could do about it. I was alone as I felt there was no one I could confide in who could understand what I was going thru. And then I met Linda. Upon the first five minutes of conversing with her I felt a very strong connection. She really and truly understood my constant struggles with PCOS and more importantly, she cared. I left our first session feeling like a giant weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I had finally found someone that would not only work with me but someone who would become my biggest cheerleader.

I have learned so much during our journey together. Yes, I have learned a great deal about PCOS and I have a much better working knowledge of what my body is going thru each day. But I have learned so much more than that! I have learned about giving my body the food, nutrients and natural supplements it needs to thrive each day. I have learned how to shop for nutritious foods and how to make meals that are not only delicious but healthy. I have become more spiritual, more loving and more accepting of not only myself but those around me. I am a better wife, mother, daughter and friend to those I love. I have learned to love myself inside and out and to look in the mirror each and every day and know that I am truly beautiful- a thought I would never have allowed myself to have before I met Linda. My body, mind and soul have blossomed in our time together. Working with Linda these last few months has been one of the greatest blessings I have received in life. And when our time together as health coach and client is over, I know I will cry. But my tears will be tears of joy and gratitude for the journey we have traveled together these last six months. And they will be tears of sheer gratefulness for the lifelong friend I have found along the path to being the happiest and best possible ME I could ever be.

I met Linda about two and a half years ago. My first impressions were a very personable, outgoing, knowledgeable and confident woman. After meeting with her for the first time, as my health coach, I could tell she was very genuine in her concern for me and she WAS extremely knowledgeable.

I wanted to work on my confidence, healthier eating for my diabetes and also my weight. I had just lost a lot of weight and I wanted to maintain my weight or possibly lose more. I also had some major changes going on with my job at the time.
Linda first guided me through my job situation and then we started digging in deeper. My confidence and belief in myself has improved, but I still have work to do. Linda has taught me so much about health and eating. It goes way beyond just what we eat, but also why we eat.

Linda is one of the most compassionate and empathetic people I have ever met. She is definitely in the right line of work. We laugh and cry, but it is all for the good. The best thing is you know you are not going through this alone. I have learned so much on this journey and want to learn so much more. I count the days until our next meeting because I never know what I am going to find out.

Working with Linda makes me feel so taken care of. It is almost like being pampered. She is generous with a ton of information, handouts, recipes, etc., or just a hand to hold onto. Linda definitely takes care of you.

Deciding to work with Linda has been one of the best decisions in my life!

I have known Linda personally and professionally for over 7 years. Linda is one of the kindest, most supportive people I have ever known.I would describe Linda as kind, encouraging, enthusiastic and above all, non-judgmental. She makes you feel comfortable and at ease the moment you meet her. I love her ability to connect with all types of people and understand what each of them is going through.

Coaching is her passion, and she cares for her clients on a personal level, always putting extra effort and support into her coaching and retreats. She has so much heart for the work she does, and she is doing something special to help women lead authentic lives, even in this hectic, demanding world. She has a way of bringing out the best in people and helping them discover the best version of themselves.

Linda has coached me on both a personal and professional level and the changes have always been just what I needed. I continue to seek her advice and attend her workshops because there is always something new to learn about myself.

If you are willing to take a journey into getting to know yourself on a deeper level, Linda is the person that will make the journey safe, exciting and highly rewarding. What I love most about her is that she is a combination of gentle intuition and practical common sense. Her advice is always based on what is best for her client and what is truly manageable. She has proven over and over again that small steps can lead to big changes.

I didn’t even know I was looking for enlightenment and leadership, and then I found it in Linda! I needed guidance with some major life decisions and changes, and Linda provided me that and so much more. She delves into what makes me tick, provides other points of view, and gentle guidance to help me make the right choices for me and perhaps change my mindset. I believe

One of my top goals upon starting the 6 month program was to change my eating habits for better health. Linda Kochiu was able to help me work towards this goal through our one on one discussions and by providing me with information.

The biggest tangible change I have noticed since beginning the program has been an overall change in my behavior to be present and mindful. This change has given me the confidence to take actions in my day to day life. I find more enjoyment by taking walks, building relationships, trying new recipes, and creating at work. I went to Linda for my eating habits and got so much more. I highly recommend Linda Kochiu. Her perspective and support is excellent!
