Wellness Coaching

“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

Marianne Williamson

Purpose for coaching

To reflect the beautiful light, wisdom and uniqueness that is already present within the individual so that they can become the best that they can be in their role as a leader in businessĀ and in turn they can shine their light on others such as their team or organisation and make a difference in the world.


Leaders who wish to:

  • live more consciously and with intention
  • live life more fully with love, joy and passion
  • create with deliberate intention become a master creator
  • be up to something great making a difference in the world
  • who want to experience optimal wellness.

Coaching process

By being fully present in the moment, I hold a sacred space for clients in a non-judgemental way (signature presence). This provides a safe and loving gentle space that allows clients to relax, breathe and be their true authentic self and so they can uncover and identify patterns and negative influences that block them from being the best that they can be. By becoming aware of what derails them, they can then begin to choose more powerfully what they wish to have and experience in their life.

At the heart of my coaching framework is an understanding of the theory of the Chinese Five Elements which promotes an awareness of the nurturing (Shen cycle) and control (Ko) cycles or sub-systems inherent in each individual. This has the overall effect of increasing the consciousness within individuals as leaders, which in turn, impacts the teams and organisations that they are working in. Results may include tolerance, patience, connection and acceptance.

Clients share their personal experience of wellness (storytelling or narrative psychology) and come to their own realisations, insights, wisdom and patterns of experience. Essentially there is an exploration of how they can develop a positive sense of well-being, belonging, meaning, and purpose (positive psychology) from being a part of and giving back to something that is much greater than themselves. Through a quantum collapse, it becomes possible for them to see the hidden order in all of life experiences. This understanding can assist them in making quantum leaps in consciousness in quantum time.

This process has clients achieve their personal goals or at the least, they move closer toward it. Sustained behaviour change, through new habits supports their process.
