I first met Jonathan while attending a breath work session in Coconut Grove. I was instantly drawn to him. Perhaps it was his genuine presence, his smile or the recognition two souls have that are destined to meet and work together.
At the time I was dealing with much pain and was desperately looking for a way to get ME back. Some very poor choices had caused me to have suffered very bad consequences and found myself in a perpetual prison of obsession, anxiety and depression. I had no way out. From the moment I opened my eyes in the morning to the last second before bed every night life was a complete and daily struggle. Earlier at the onset I was incapable of getting out of bed, pouring myself a glass of water or making coffee. I had lost my grip on life. My emotions were in control of me. Never had I felt so desperate, hopeless and tired.
Jonathan created a healing space for me. He became my friend, my mentor and “big brother” although I am several years older than him. By walking with me step by step through the muddy waters of my depression, I was able to accept what was happening and realize that somewhere in that mess I had not lost ME. I was still there. There was nowhere I could have gone even though at times I did not recognize what I had become. Through Jonathan’s coaching I was able to reconnect with Essence, Spirit and that deep shining light I knew I had but had been unable to grasp.
During sessions, sometimes I laughed, sometimes I cried… many times I remained silent. Most importantly I healed and began to rise above MY own self-created and self-imposed limitations. I stepped into my Light and Authenticity once again. By working with Jonathan I reclaimed my most cherished and self-created mantra: DIVE INWATD, LOOK ONWARD, MOVE FORWARD. I high;y reccommed him to anyone and everyone.

I have learned a lot about myself after having Jonathan as my coach. He has supported me through various parts of my life including self-development, family issues and helped me through my learning experience in my coaching school. He is incredibly attentive and compassionate about my issues.
Every session with Jonathan has helped me grow to a stronger person. He helped me realize that I am more than the person I think I am. Jonathan has been an amazing partner in the journey of my self-growth and I am very thankful that I have contacted him to coach me from the beginning. I am so much more confident and aware of myself in my approach in life, all thanks to his acknowledgement and encouragement throughout our sessions. Thank you Jonathan!

I recently met Jonathan during a group coaching here in Berlin. After the session, I engaged him in a conversation about a couple of the points we discussed in the group.
It was quite remarkable and I am still amazed at how these few brief conversations have affected me. Truly inspirational. But that’s the way he makes you feel.
Whether you are just starting on your journey or you took the wrong road, Jonathan can help you find your way. He will guide you to bring your professional or personal project to the next level as a coach, mentor and yes – life changer.
Consider the following: warm, caring, empathetic, passionate, honest, patient, genuine, humble, diligent, intellectually-curious, intelligent, knowledgeable, wise. These are all human qualities which are not unusual in isolation, but extremely rare when the totality is amalgamated in one individual. It is my firm opinion that all these adjectives can be used to describe Jonathan Hermida; and these attributes make him not only a formidable life coach, but also a very fine human being.
In addition, he is an excellent listener, and I am sure that Jonathan’s ability to listen, absorb and process information in a meaningful and constructive manner is highly valued by all those with whom he comes into contact.
However, there is one particular character trait of his which stands out, for me, above all others; and it is illustrated in the following hypothetical situation:
I have mentioned Jonathan to a friend who, according to my friend’s sister, is in dire need of support to get his life back on track. Depressed and in denial, my friend is initially sceptical that anyone could possibly help him. He challenges me to give him just one reason why he should approach Jonathan. And I say, ‘Because he genuinely cares about you.’ The reply is predictable: ‘But he doesn’t even know me.’ ‘But he understands you,’ I respond.’ My friend looks confused but he agrees, in any case, to go and see Jonathan. I bump into my friend six months later and he says: ‘Now I get what you meant.’ My friend’s experience has been so positive and life-changing that he now wants to help others. (This desire to ‘pass it on’ is not hypothetical: it has been a common experience for Jonathan’s reinvigorated clients.)
I would posit that you cannot help people to help themselves if you are merely equipped with good intentions. You need to really understand them. But in order to really understand them, you need to really listen to them; and in order to really listen, absorb and process the information you are receiving, you have to genuinely care about them. These skills and qualities are parts of the ‘whole’, from whence the word ‘holistic’ is derived. With this in mind, I believe that Jonathan’s life coaching approach is holistic in more ways than one.
It has been commented in the press that the so-called ‘selfie-generation’ would be more accurately described as ‘the generation of the self’. Whether that’s true or not I do not know for sure, but I often perceive it to be so. In any case, Jonathan’s deep and sincere caring for others is, in my opinion, an increasingly rare and precious commodity in the modern world; and it will prove to be an integral ingredient both in his future success as a life coach, and in the greatly-improved health and happiness of all those who are fortunate enough to meet him.

Jonathan’s coaching style is inviting and he has the ability to very quickly get me centered into the coaching session by creating a calming environment. I welcome this as I am often coming from a much busier mindset. His presence makes opening up easy and his questions and observations always help me to become more aware. Above all, it is great to be able to have a conversation with a guy who understands a guy’s perspective. This is so important! I highly recommend Jonathan as your coach.

Working with Jonathan helped me gain so much clarity in my life. He is an exceptionally caring and non-judgmental coach, so I had no barriers to stop me from moving forward in my life and uncovering many thoughts I didn’t always know that I had. During our time together he was a consistent source of encouragement, motivation, inspiration and support. My experience was unforgettable!

I have benefited immensely from Jonathan’s coaching sessions. His coaching supported me in making a major decision to bring happiness and fulfillment in my life. I was able to make a transition to a more balanced approach to life, which so far has been very rewarding and different to how I spent the last few years when i felt overwhelmed for the last decade and a half. He is very personable and leads you to a voyage of self-discovery, goal setting and goal achievement that i have found not frightening at all, but his techniques actually make the journey exciting. My deepest thanks to Jonathan for his coaching sessions, which I count as a major milestone in my life.

Jonathan coached me during a turning point in my career. He helped me along to give reality to my ideas through a professional and concrete support. I felt like I had a real partner to walk this new path with. His international experience was to key to understand my cultural context. He also contributed to open perspectives, providing stimulating material for thought. I really enjoyed the way he was conducting our working sessions, being a professional partner, non judgmental and benevolent. I am very thankful for this creative teamwork. Merci Jonathan!
