Three months ago, the pop superstar broke down during her Las Vegas concert and apologized to her fans, saying, “I’m sorry, pagod na po ako.” Shortly after, comedian Vice Ganda admitted in an interview that he too “experienced and underwent depression like Sarah and would have anxiety attacks.”

And although the two have announced they are in better state of mind these days, Calingasan said her offer stands should they need to avail of it in the future.

“Life coaching is a profession so profoundly different from therapy or counselling. I don’t give advice or my personal opinions. In the case of Vice and Sarah, they are very popular and most of their time are spent on giving people entertainment. With their hectic schedules and the unpredictable acceptance or judgements of people watching them, they could easily burn out. That’s where I step in: I could help them realize their unlimited potential while enjoying their dream – a balanced life.”

She added: “We help people realize that whatever it is they want to achieve in life, it can be realized. We help them lead their lives to the fullest. This means achieving a balanced life even during and after limelight, and succeeding in 7 aspects of their life – health, happiness, finances, career, family, spirituality and friends.”

Many international celebrities and leaders admit to have life coaches. Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, Leonardo DiCpario, Serena Williams, Andre Agassi and Hugh Jackman are just some of them. Highly successful entrepreneurs and professionals have certified life coaches from the start of their career. They give them unbiased and constructive criticism and unwavering encouragement all the way to the success line. I personally think coaching is one of the single most effective success accelerators.

So why Sarah and Vice in particular, I asked.

“I admire both of them. They are both passionate with what they do. You can easily connect with them through their eyes. They are very influential and they always share their energy, talents and abilities that could lead both of them into thinking they could be tired or drained. In this day and age—a hectic life, so many imbalances, social media, less real interaction—all of these lead people into making decisions that lead to a place where they might feel fearful, empty and always seeking something that they themselves don’t know what.”

And that’s why many celebs need life coaches.
