1 on 1 Life Coaching

Coaching is a very different experience than traditional therapy, read more about the differences here.

I have found that most of us live in our comfort zone. It’s not until we are forced out, that we start taking stock and realize that things are just simply OK.  We are just surviving. We fall victim to comfort which is not always healthy but feels safe.

For many of my clients and definitely for myself, it takes our lives being turned upside down for us to realize that we are not really living authentically. I call these life-changing events the 5D’s (Death, Divorce, Downsized, Disease, Dumped) and they have the potential to catapult our lives, in which direction is up to us. When you go through these events, you are compelled to ask ourselves some pretty big questions and dive deeper into the truth of who you are.

Despite the specific circumstances that have brought you here, it all comes down to the feeling that ‘something’ is urging you to move forward, it’s like you are being called home. For most of us, this home is not anywhere that we know in our logical minds, but we can feel it in our cores. Somehow, you know that this place is the place that will bring you happiness beyond what you ever thought was possible. This rebirth begins when you start to understand who you truly are … the you that lives buried beneath all the mind chatter and cultural programming. The you that knows there are freedom, joy and fulfillment that can only come from reconnecting to your home.

This new sense of well-being comes from living your truth, owning your strengths, tuning into your intuition and the radical acceptance of your Self and life. When you get a taste of this, there is no turning back! You are living life on your terms, how you were meant too!

Coaching Packages



This package is a fantastic starting point for moving forward in your life. It is the most directed of the coaching sessions as we work together to provide clarity on how you are showing up in various areas of your life and you get some great insights into how your mind is processing life. In these 3- 60 minute session you’ll learn:

Web of Life – We’ll start by reviewing several aspects of your life and determining your overall satisfaction.  Once we have a clear snapshot, and we’ve explored how each area is intertwined (work, home, self-care, etc.), we will identify where adjustments are needed. This exercise gives you a good snapshot look at your life.

Values – What are your top 10 values?  You may be thinking, “I know what mine are, why is this important”?  This session is essential.  When you live outside of our values, it causes you stress.  Through this exercise, you will get a real sense of how your values impact your life and how being out of alignment can be detrimental.

Archetypes – The Archetypes are what I like to call the voices in your head. They often can be associated with the “should do,” “can’t do,” “need to do” and “if you were a good girl”. These voices guide your behaviours, and when you don’t understand them, you make choices that you think will lead to happiness, but yet seem to fall short. This is because you are missing the most significant puzzle piece.  When you understand how the archetypes work in our life, you can start to decipher those voices and figure out what is real and what is mindset programming.

In these exploratory sessions, you are given the space to start understanding how your mind works and what is guiding your decisions. This awareness allows you to move forward, knowing that the choices you make align with YOU, not simply who you were taught to be.  This is your first glimpse into living authentically and give you access to true power and freedom!

Steps to Freedom


Aw, freedom!  Something we all dream of.  My freedom package includes everything listed in the foundations’ package plus, 5 – 1 hour 1-on-1 sessions where together, we will discover and set achievable goals based on what you’ve uncovered in your foundations sessions.  You will be given a chance to explore deeper into the truth of who you are.  The insights you gain will give you the guidance you need to start living authentically. These steps to freedom are the first steps on your journey home, to your Self.

Come Home to Your Self


This package also includes the foundations’ sessions plus 10 – 1 hour 1-on-1 coaching sessions. These extra sessions will assist you in making better choices and will allow for extra support in making these changes happen. Often when we get started on a path of growth, we hit unexpected roadblocks.  By continuing to work together, you will learn more tools to deal with the inevitable detours on your journey. The more wisdom you can acquire and the more you can connect with your intuition the easier the journey becomes. This package allows you to come back to your Self, the home that has been calling you!
