Here is what people are saying about my work… If you want to know more, contact me!
“When I started coaching with Stella, I just wanted to lose weight. But I got so much more out of it! Very soon, I started to feel much better, to have more energy, to have less back pain, to take less medicine, to have much fewer headaches and be less stressed out and irritated.
I went from size 16 to size 12! I cleaned up my wardrobe and gave away all the pants that were too big, it felt so good! I know I won’t need them anymore, because it’s natural to keep the weight off now, I don’t have to work hard for it!
Stella has helped me realize that being healthy is not just about weight and exercise; it’s also about caring for myself as much as I care for others. I have learned so much with Health Coaching! I have started to share all that with my loved ones because I know that if it has worked for me, it can work for them too!
It’s not that hard, you just have to take the time… And that’s one of the things I loved the most with Stella, she is very patient and never tried to push me where I didn’t want to go. She would offer tools and suggestions, and then let me chose the ones I wanted to try out. I am so thankful for the weight I have lost, but I think what makes me even happier is the new way I look at myself and the way I live my life now and how it has changed my relationships with others. This is a blessing!!!”

“Trying to approach lifestyle change can be daunting. Many of us struggle with habits that seem to have a life of their own, unaffected by any efforts we make. To find a coach who brings science as well as heart to the process is a gift. Stella Loichot is one such coach and I highly recommend her class! Over the course of three months, Stella helped a diverse group shift from negative self-assessments to a more compassionate understanding of why our habits developed in the first place. Along with tracking and noticing what was true, she brought to our awareness current research, helping us relax about our goals—shifting from a need for immediate results to more long-term, sustainable plans. As Stella was teaching us how we could befriend our bodies, the entire group began to open like a flower that has found a refreshing stream nearby. Such a gift—to find community and kindness as we work to bring healthy patterns to our lives.”
Kristen K. – Seattle, WA
“Stella is warm and her positive energy radiates. She is able to unlock your full potential so that you can be at your best. She has a gentle kindness in doing so. Reaching the top with her seems like a walk in the park while you are actually climbing mountains.”
Anne W. – Seattle, WA
“Life has been busy! The Wellness Assessment & Lifestyle Renewal Plan we did together 6 months ago really helped me to abandon choosing small meals every couple of hours and switching to fewer, more substantial meals. I am now just one pound away from my goal!!! Increasing my physical activity level also had a big impact on my weight loss. This also seems to have reduced my appetite some. Thanks again for your assistance!”
Hillary T. – Seattle, WA
“What makes Stella stand out to me is her listening to the deeper issues covered under apparently superficial problems. She is not afraid to dive deeper, and help you to explore further into what is holding you back. And, by doing so, we may divert entirely from the initial goal set for the session, but that is great, because I always end up with an outcome much bigger and better than I had initially set up for myself.
Her approach is very tactful, not intrusive, and open-minded, and she is fully present at the session, which makes you feel accompanied every step of the way. Her coaching presence allows her to always bring a fresh, unthought-of perspective to every situation, which reorganizes your mental content in different “drawers”, opening up room to new possibilities.
I always leave the session feeling “loved”, because that is the energy Stella puts out during the entire encounter: it doesn’t matter what you are going through, where you are and where you want to be, she is there, and she can “love” you for where you are, and for who you are.
She is the person to go to if you are looking for deep, long-lasting changes.”
Marcia Q. – Haddonfield, NJ
“I started working with Stella at a time when I had been successfully counting calories for years, but knew that I was on the brink of stopping. Her idea of being able to be free of those confines (no matter how much comfort it gave me) was intriguing and refreshing. Working together, she helped me establish a framework for myself that I could use to make the healthiest decisions regarding food while still allowing me the indulgences that I craved. It took me a little while to put “everything in moderation” into practice effectively, but with her help, it finally sunk in.
Stella also challenged me to expand my horizons regarding what I ate, taught me how to make bread, and helped me find the confidence to experiment with my cooking. Now I bake my own bread and my own sweet treats, and I cook with greater confidence. My kitchen, instead of being a place that is just there, or something to dread, is a place where I find pleasure, and sometimes *gasp* even fun! I didn’t think that was even in the realm of possibility for me.
When I stopped working with Stella, I had the tools necessary to be self-sufficient in my eating choices. I still often find myself referring to the structures and support Stella helped me develop, or even hear her dropping little pearls of wisdom. She has had a long-lasting impact on my relationship with food and I now have the ability to keep evolving on my own.”
Tara C. – Madison, WI
“Health and wellness has more than one component and, as a gym owner, I know that finding and working with professionals in the industry that share the same commitment can be difficult.
When I met Stella, I could tell immediately that she had a passion and love for people’s health and wellness and I knew I wanted her as part of my team. With the help of Stella, we created an 8-week program designed to tackle the struggles of today’s working professionals to manage their stress, eating habits and workout routines and provided the tools for them to be successful.
Working will Stella has been a pleasure and anyone that gets the opportunity will see her unmatched professionalism.”
Michael Browder, Personal Trainer & Owner – Project 968, Seattle WA
“Before working with Stella, I only ate ready-made processed food, with very little natural foods such as vegetables and fruit. Stella is warm, but at the same time, very much down to earth, and she does not waste time with B.S. We only worked together for a few weeks, but it was enough for me to completely change my eating habits. I am now having proper meals with lots of fruit and vegetables throughout the day. I am eating healthy and not too much, but I still treat myself to something good when I want to. Now that I eat well, I feel less hungry, and that makes a big difference in the way my day goes by!”
Michael H. – Helsinki, Finland
“Stella is very dedicated to our students and their learning. She wants them to have a good experience and is very organized and enthusiastic. Stella makes good use of the time, ensuring that her students enjoy not just the content area, but also being in class. We are really happy to have Stella teach with us and we appreciate how seriously she takes her teaching and all the extra things she does.”
Sally Romero, Continuing Education Program Specialist, South Seattle College – Seattle, WA
“I had a great time working with Stella. She used a very personalized approach and focused on areas that I could realistically improve, but most importantly, that I was ready and motivated enough to work on. I had only a few pounds to lose to reach my weight goal, and exercising more and more just wouldn’t do it. She provided me with advises and tips about the way I eat and exercise that helped me reach my goal. She came up with ideas I had not thought about before. I liked that she was not trying to impose me a specific calendar or routine, but went with a one-at-a-time, small goal approach, which she understood I could sustain longer than one involving drastic changes to my daily routine. It was really a collaboration process, which I felt I was in control of. I would work with her again, without hesitation.”
Miss V. – Seattle, WA
“Stella demonstrates a remarkable capacity for empathy. She is very intuitive to the needs of people and always has a positive outlook on things. She was really key in helping me reach a few professional and personal milestones.”
Bénédicte C. – Philadelphia, PA
“If you ever make your way into one of Stella’s workshops, you’d be glad you did. I attended her session on sleep in a recent ICF event. Two hours later found myself with eyes wide-open and eager to put to immediate practice all that I learned. What’s Stella’s secret sauce? It may be a blend of science-based easy explanations, non-judgmental and compassionate perspectives, gentle humor, and a passion for self-discovery and action. Hers are not just words – she walks the talk! We got a glimpse of her personal struggle with sleeping well and the creativity in her approach to finding a solution. And she helped us realize that having a good night sleeps is not only important but is also within everybody’s reach, even if getting there may be outside their comfort zone.”
Osnat Lustig – Seattle, WA
“Stella’s French approach to wellness and health is creative and refreshing yet she keeps it real. She is highly trustworthy, kind, inspiring and will have your back and be there for you through the challenges. Depending on your goals and needs, you’d definitely find some new recipes, better ways to grocery shop, ideas for getting healthier or more fit and much more.
Jana C. – Seattle, WA
“Stella is an absolutely amazing coach! From my first session, she made me feel so comfortable and safe. Stella is one of the most empathetic and compassionate people I have ever met. After my sessions, things always seem so much clearer to me. I have learned so much about myself since working with Stella. I cannot wait to see what my future entails! Thank you for your tremendous guidance Stella!”
Melinda G. – San Diego, CA
“I attended a talk that Stella gave on sleep and learned so much from it that I could use in my daily life. She is so personable and friendly that it was easy to stay engaged with what she was teaching. I have actually done a lot of research on sleep and heard many new things from Stella that I didn’t know already. She is well-informed and conveys the material in a way that is easy to understand.”
Jill A. – Seattle, WA
“Stella is my kind of lady. Our conversations leave me feeling emboldened and grounded… ready for all the world has to throw my way. Working with Stella has given me tools that help me tackle obstacles in a new productive way, rooted in confidence. She is a great coach and I would wholeheartedly recommend Allons-y Coaching for anyone else who needs help in realizing how magnificent they really are!”
