You are a woman who has accomplished so much already in life. Maybe you have the family or the job you've always wanted. Now that you've spent years as a great employee, wife or mother you find yourself missing the YOU you used to be. Perhaps you left a dream or two behind or just set them aside while you helped others reach their goals and now you are wondering if it's time to invest in yourself. You look at your calendar and with all the family and work obligations you think, once again, that there's no time left for your dreams. If your best friend asked you what she should do in this situation what would you say? That's right, you'd tell her that there IS time for her, because if you don't make time for yourself who will? Well, consider me that friend, or at least your life coach.
I know you're a smart and capable woman, but even strong women need a helping hand once in while. Sometimes you can get so caught up in thinking that you're "too old" or you need to be "responsible" or you "just can't see where to begin" and think you can't start pursuing those dreams. Hey, if you're still thinking about them than that still makes them possible! All you need is to realized you are so worth the success of achieving your desired goals. You know hard work is necessary to getting anything worthwhile in life and that will be a requirement to getting to that goal. I am here to help you. Ok, I can't possibly arrange a marriage to a crown prince (at least not yet, I'm working on my contact list) but I know you are fabulous and what you want IS important. Maybe by going after that long-awaited goal you'll inspire other woman to do that same. As William Shakespeare wrote in King Lear, "If you do nothing you get nothing." and you have had enough of doing nothing!
If this sounds familiar to you, I can identify with the struggles you have because I've had them, too! If you struggle with confidence as a woman or need help in pointing you in the direction you want to go, or maybe you want to have someone in your corner to motivate you, to help you realize your goals - well, I'd be honoured to be that person and join you in your journey. I have the tools to help you reach a resolution that resonates with your core values and beliefs, so that the changes you make are positive and lasting.
Growing up in a suburb of Toronto gave me the opportunity to meet so many different people and see how each brought value and insight into everyday and into every situation. Once I graduated from university I was incredibly fortunate to work in the industry which is a great love of mine. While working at Harlequin, yes, the romance novel place, I met my future husband. We like to joke that we're a Harlequin Romance-it sounds cuter at dinner parties. After we welcomed our first child we decided we needed more room and a backyard for him to roam around in and so we moved to our first home. Once there, we had two more children. After many years of job changes, life experiences and loads more adventures, we packed up and relocated to the Niagara Region. This new area is so peaceful and I feel it gave me the opportunity to hear what the universe wanted to tell me- after many varied life experiences it was my turn to commit to becoming a helper.
Once I made the decision to become a certified Life Coach I struggled with who my ideal client would be. I knew I couldn't help everyone and I thought long and hard about what my life's experiences had been thus far. I thought, "At what point in my life would a life coach have been invaluable? When was I most lost in my confusion about where I wanted my life to be? Am I really anything more than just a Mom and Wife?" I wondered where that confident women who could conquer the world went to? I remember liking her a lot! That was when I knew who I could provide the most value to: women over 30! It's at that stage where I struggled the most and feel I've gained the greatest insight on how to maneuver through that time in our lives. I now had a goal! I was excited to wake up every morning and do what I needed to do to get this goal accomplished. There were women out there who needed to be reminded that they are strong and fabulous!
I set about learning and getting certified in Life Coaching from well-respected educators in this field. I studied modern applied psychology, neuro-linguistic programming, counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and even neuro-plasticity, in hopes that I could provide the best and most comprehensive guidance to women. I feel very confident in the skills I have acquired and I am ready to assist those, already fabulous women, who just need to find their way back to the road of confidence and personal success!
Together we find the step-by-step direction needed to achieve your goals and set you on the way to becoming the Queen of your destiny.
