I am so pleased to have you here. I am a Life Coach who works with people to assist in releasing blocks that may be holding them back from creating and living the life they truly desire. I believe that with the right support a person can overcome adversities to go on and live their best life. Life throws all sorts of challenges our way, it is our mindset and resilience (innate or learned) that determines how we allow it to shape us and our life.
I’ve had my fair share of curve balls! I have created, and recreated my life a number of times. I thrive on change, and challenges put a fire in my belly! I was raised by my mother when my father died in a car accident when I was six. I became a single mother myself when I left an emotionally abusive relationship when my son was less than a year old. I have found the courage when I thought I had nothing left to leave relationships that had no hope of improving, I have built businesses from scratch to success, and pulled myself out of times of deep depression and anxiety to live a life of more happiness and ease.
It is all of my experiences collectively and a tonne of personal development over the years that armed me with the strength and resilience that enabled me to cope when our youngest son was born with Cystic Fibrosis. His first 7 months were fraught with challenges. I witnessed him go through things no parent should ever have to see their child endure. He is currently stable and such an inspiration of love, laughter and joy.
How I became a Life Coach
After a successful career spanning 17 years in the beauty industry including establishing my own business & becoming an award-winning educator, I ached for change. I loved the creative and social aspects of my career, but there was always a desire to expand into something more. In 2015 I sold my salon, and began a journey of self-discovery and self-development exploring who am I now, what is my purpose for being here, and basically just trying to be an all-round better human being.
In 2016 I began my Bachelor of Counselling at the University of the Sunshine Coast and in 2017 graduated from the Beautiful You Coaching Academy as a Life Coach. In 2018 I became a certified NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP) and Time Line Therapy Practitioner.
I’ve always loved working with people and hearing their stories. Now, having the tools to support others to find their light within and to assist in releasing limiting beliefs so they may live the authentic lives they desire, really sets my heart alight!
As I mentioned earlier, life has thrown me quite some curveballs! Some I’ve chosen and some well out of my control. Through my experiences I have built a core of strength and resilience (not without it’s challenges), I’ve travelled the challenging paths, and from this have learnt mindset is everything. Everything.
Along with my partner Ben & our blended family we live on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia- one of the most beautiful places in the world.
