  • Do you feel stressed, reacting in unresourceful ways, or not quite yourself.
  • Are you headed for burnout?
  • Do you give everything to your work, but you lack job satisfaction?
  • Are you a business owner looking for a way to get control over your business and your life?
  • Are you interested in exploring, or gaining clarity on a specific challenge, problem or issue?
If any of these sound familiar, if they describe your life in any way, I can help you. Understand that you are not alone.

How Do I Help you?


Coaching is a way for you to partner with a professional for a time, in order for you to
(a) become Aware of the roots of your workday challenges,
(b) discover Answers within yourself which you’re not currently able to access, and
(c) develop a workable Action plan to move forward from where you’ve previously been stuck.

As a Coach, I don’t assume to know your life/business better than you, I don’t pretend to understand your situation better than you do, and I’m certainly not disrespectful enough to think I have all of the answers for your unique situation. What I do promise is to listen, learn, facilitate, and guide you in directions that will assist you in finding the best answers to your unique issues.

You’re the one who knows your life, your job, your strengths, your challenges. I will help you become fully aware of where you are, and where you would like to be, and then help you bridge the gap, making you the person you want to be.

I have put together a structured process which is flexible enough to ensure I work with you according to your individual needs, on the specific points of challenge in your life.

Allow me to help you become the person you want to be.

To the Manager

A manager is expected to be confident, competent and motivated at all times. You can be expected to know the jobs of everyone you manage, understand the inner workings of the company, and do your own job to a high level of success. A manager is often thought of as having completely achieved a requisite amount of knowledge, and when issues arise for the manager themselves, there is often nowhere for them to go to garner support, to find the answers they need to feel, rise above, conquer, give themselves the edge they need.


To the CEO or Business Owner

CEOs and Business Owners are expected to have all the answers, all the time. In reality, the many responsibilities you carry can mean a constant juggling act, all the while being expected to carry yourself with a calm professionalism.


To the New Business Owner

A new business owner can feel pulled in every direction, expected to deal with a myriad of problems as they put their whole self into their new venture. At times it can seem as though the new business and their personal identity are completely enmeshed. Starting out how you mean to go on seems like a great idea, but like any element of business, there can be a learning curve, and where do you turn, to learn how to be a strong, capable and successful business owner? I can help you.

The more you know, the better you can do.

How does stress impact you, and how can you manage it?

Stress can have a huge impact on your health and wellbeing. Are you feeling overwhelmed, worrying about the future, and not being effective in what you are doing? Read on.

Stress is defined as any environmental conditions that require behavioural adjustment. Stress is inevitable, and a normal part of life.

A little stress is good for you, it helps performance. Once stress increases to a level, fatigue sets in, then exhaustion, Illness and breakdown. Too little stress and you get bored.

Stress provides feedback. Stress is a physical expression of our “Fight or Flight” survival mechanism. A perceived threat will trigger a stress response in our body, which prepares us to confront or flee a potential danger. This helps for immediate danger, but unfortunately the stress response is also triggered by tense situations where physical action is not an option.

In today’s fast paced life, we are continually receiving signals that trigger our stress response.

Potential stress triggers include relationship breakdowns, financial problems, health concerns, caring for a newborn baby, traumatic events.

The stress response triggers changes in your body:

  • Blood sugar levels rise
  • Additional red blood cells are released to carry extra oxygen
  • Peripheral blood vessels constrict
  • Heart rate increases
  • Blood pressure rises
  • Digestion slows down and stops

Stress causes chemical changes in the body that can have negative effects on both mental and physical health if the stress response continues. Chronis stress occurs when the stress response keeps the body on alert continuously.

Stress can be reduced by a number of methods. If possible.

  • You can eliminate the trigger.
  • Exercise helps, including yoga, tai chi, qi gong, walking, running, and swimming.
  • Getting professional support such as your GP, a counsellor, or therapist.
  • Elicit the Relaxation Response can reverse the Stress Response. The Relaxation Response can be elicited through meditation.

If you would like to learn how to reduce and manage stress, join my meditation group, or come along to one of my workshops.
