WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT
Peggy MacArthur is a skilled and insightful coach. Without fail, my sessions with Peggy challenged me to look at my personal and business development goals in a new light while simultaneously supporting me to evolve at my own pace. Peggy's sharp intelligence, honesty, and her abundant warmth make her a highly effective coach for anyone looking to make concrete changes to their personal or professional life.
Emma Cruse Rogers, Founder and Director, The Arion Center, Annapolis, Maryland
Working with Peggy I've discovered my deepest held values and life purpose. I've also learned to identify when I'm getting in my own way. Peggy has a peculiar knack for insight and clarity -- she cuts to the chase every time without wasting time or mincing words. The beauty of it is that it's always uplifting, encouraging and inspiring; I never feel pressured or dismissed. Peggy's gentle guidance is more than a breath of fresh air -- it's pure oxygen.
Peggy, I cannot thank you enough for the coaching you have provided me. Your gentle, yet focused, style helped me find the answers that were within me. Every single time we spoke, I uncovered a new truth, a hidden feeling, or something so obvious that frankly I don't know how I overlooked it. From the first time we spoke, I sensed that you genuinely cared about my happiness and would be an important catalyst in helping me achieve my goals. I feel truly blessed to have connected with you, and am thankful that I can relay on you for future coaching.

As I re-engineered my 5 year old company from a consultancy to more of an agency, Peggy was an invaluable resource. We were moving from infancy to the next phase of our growth which meant we needed to refine our vision and assign new roles and responsibilities. Peggy led us through a very methodical process which began by taking the pulse of the organization, each player at a time. We realigned talent then moved into a marketing and growth mode. Again, Peggy was there to help us define next steps, encourage us and cheer our successes. We continue on the growth path she helped us uncover.
Harriet Blickenstaff, Owner, Blick & Staff Communications, St. Louis, Missouri
An early experience in business taught me that a good idea is not the sole foundation for success. I learned through coaching that the implementation of a good idea must be preceded by clarity of intent, purpose and preparedness. Peggy helped me discover my true interest, level of confidence, willingness to persevere, preparedness and my long term goals. With answers to these questions I was able to confidently move forward to the next task of creating and implementing a business venture.

Peggy - Having you as my coach was a wonderful experience...In both my business and personal life, you helped keep me on track in a kind and gentle way that was very comforting to me. You are a great listener but also have the ability to motivate thoughts to action. You have a strong talent for perceiving what is going on "behind" the words and bringing that forward to be examined. I am sincerely grateful for the time spent with you as my coach and look forward to working with you in the future.
Annette Price, Boss Mare, On the Wings of a Horse, Platteville, Colorado
Peggy MacArthur is not just a coach, she is a confidante and angel-by-my-side. I always feel supported by her both professionally and personally.
Peggy showed compassion as she pushed me just past my comfort level enabling me to really understand how I wanted to show up in the world as a coach. She has a knack for asking just the right questions to provoke a deep inward search to come up with the answer that enabled me to break free of whatever was holding me back from success. I value Peggy's thoughts. I would highly recommend Birch Corner Associates for any business or personal coaching needs.
I always felt supported by Peggy...her gentle and caring approach was perfect for me. She always seemed to ask exactly the right questions to facilitate my ability to understand myself and find my own gifts. Her coaching enabled me to create my vision and move forward with my goals. I don't know how I would have done it without her!
Jo Brilhart, RN, PsyD, LPC, Co-founder and CEO, Equine Discoveries, Conifer, Colorado
I have been privileged to have one-on-one coaching with Peggy and also to experience her incredible abilities as my coach in the Touched By A Horse Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® Certification Program. I gained so much value from her insights and her ability to ask the right questions that I hired her after I graduated from the program. She continues to move me forward in the direction of excellence. Recently I was stuck and in one session she brought out the Warrior in me and it is now my anchor forever. Her intuition and skill are amazing. Thank you, thank you, Peggy.
Through working with Peggy I found out how valuable a life coach can be. I learn something every call, as Peggy pushes me to be my best. She supports me and helps me in every way that she can. I value her expert advice and appreciate her keeping me on track. Peggy takes every call and every new step as seriously as I do and sincerely wants me to succeed. I love Peggy not only because she is such an asset to my business, but because she treats me like family and she truly cares!
Sara Hereim, Owner, Horses N Courage, Judith Gap, Montana
As my coach in the Touched By A Horse Equine Gestalt Certification Program, Peggy was exactly who I needed. She was incredibly understanding of how many hats I was wearing in addition to that of being a student. Each time Peggy offered insights or suggestions -- or the occasional well-deserved nudge! -- she demonstrated just how deeply she had listened me and how keenly developed her intuitive skills are. In Peggy, I was offered the perfect coach for me. And she is an absolute doll, with a finely-honed sense of humor, to boot!
Nancy Lee Gerson, Equine Gestalt Coach and CEO, Saddle Up Your Spirit: Get Your Quest On!, Longmont, Colorado
Peggy offers the "push" needed for me to stay on track in building my business, offering me ideas that I may not have considered and encouraging me to try things that may be out of my comfort zone. I highly recommend Peggy for your coaching needs!
