I believe you have the ability to create a life that makes the best use of your strengths, gifts, talents and values. Whatever stage of family life or career you are in, there is a path that’s right for you, and we can find it. Whatever challenges are getting in the way of you creating the life you seek, we can overcome it, together. Coaching can help you to get clear about what you desire and support you in getting into action to make it happen.
My clients are stay at home moms, expat moms, mothers balancing career and family, and women transitioning to the empty nest. I particularly like working with mums who have always looked after others and are now ready to step up for themselves. I serve as a supportive, non-judgmental partner, assisting my clients to dream, brainstorm, strategize, grow, overcome obstacles, discover the path that is right for them and stay true to their vision. My approach is a blend of coaching, positive psychology, happiness science and practical advice.
- Understand your needs and how to get them met in a positive way
- Get clear about your direction and move forward with confidence
- Feel focused, balanced, and energetic
- Discover your strengths, talents and interests
- Move past fear or other blocks that are holding you back
- Understand what you need to feel happy and discover peace of mind
I have the skills and experience to help you with:
- Practical visioning, prioritizing and planning
- Discovering and overcoming negative self talk
- Nurturing a positive mindset and supporting habits
- Developing personal boundaries and effective communication skills
- Defining actions to stay true to your vision and on track with your plans
I am committed to making sure you get value out of every session. After each meeting you will have a clear plan for the next step and how to stay on track.
My belief is that the answers you seek lie within. My approach is to help you tap into your inner wisdom, strengths and talents to create a life that is in alignment with what is most important to you. My coaching is based on successful coaching techniques, resources, and practical advice.
I’ll help you get clear, get confident, and get committed to you.
Today, there are more options available to women for both their career and family life. With more choice comes different challenges. New resources are needed to guide you in making decisions that are right for you. This is where working with me as your coach can help.
You may have left work to raise a family or, as an expat mom, been a trailing spouse. Now, you are ready to explore options for your personal and professional growth and development.
Perhaps you are approaching mid life, a period when some women can experience a sense of loss or an identity crisis when dealing with the empty nest. The silver lining is that this transition can present a wonderful new chapter in your life. It is a perfect opportunity for coaching, when there is more space to focus on yourself.
“I started coaching with Lisa to help me get some direction in my life. I had been feeling ‘stuck’ and couldn’t figure out how to move forward – I wanted to start working again after taking a break for my children, but had no idea what I wanted to focus on. Basically I felt like I wasn’t really ‘living’ or enjoying a life, I was just moving through the days.
The coaching really helped me to clarify the source of my feelings, identify what I wanted to do, and set some goals. Lisa was absolutely fantastic at figuring out what it was I needed to focus on (I actually had no idea). She seemed to know just how much to challenge me, and was flexible enough to address issues as needed. She’s an absolutely lovely person to work with, and somehow managed to make the process fun! Thanks to Lisa’s coaching I’ve made a career change I’m really happy with, and feel 100 times more capable of living life with a sense of purpose and enjoyment.”
“Lisa really helped me identify my strengths and use those in ways I had not really explored before. Lisa was very patient and listened to what I wanted to learn more about. She gave me many helpful resources and tools to use and encouraged me to really consider making changes that were honestly pretty scary.
After working with Lisa, I was able to plan some ideas for retirement and take the necessary steps to learn some new skills that enabled me to make the changes I wanted. I think the time spent to work on myself was the best investment I could make. I am much more confident and happier than I have ever been.”
“Lisa’s a great active listener and she helped me to prioritize what was important in my life, personally and professionally. She never failed to let me go home with helpful insights. The coaching sessions with Lisa have given me a sense of balance and have provided me with the answers and tools to make this new decade the best one yet. I highly recommend her as a coach.”
“Lisa asked some tough yet compassionate questions that shook me out of victim mode and step into action to bring about a positive change within me.
She is a deeply caring, very intuitive and supportive coach who truly wants her clients to find their own Truths and shine. I was very lucky indeed that she came into my life at just the right time to change my trajectory from self-destruction to self-empowerment mode.”
“At a crossroads in my career and my life, and somewhat depressed, Lisa has guided me through exercises which have helped me to identify more fulfilling paths for me to take in the future. Her practical inspiration, challenge and support, plus her guidance in helping me build-up my confidence and self-esteem has proved a powerful combination, and I find myself with more direction, energy and fulfillment. My once a week investment with Lisa is really paying dividends – you can’t put a price on creating a new, more fulfilling life for yourself. Thanks Lisa!”
“Lisa has empathy yet has this lovely gentle way of moving you forward out from the turmoil you feel emotionally to move you forward with your goals.
Since being with Lisa I have moved forward emotionally, got a new job and am studying the life-coaching diploma.
Lisa has a lovely warmth about her is totally non judgmental and has a great sense of humor. She shows unfailing belief in me as a person which is so encouraging. I always look forward to my sessions and view them as a sound investment for my future wellbeing.”
