You are a someone 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, spouse or parent 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 you think they should do in this situation what would you say? That's right, you'd say there IS time, because if you don't make time for yourself who will? Well, consider me that friend, or at least your coach.
I know you're a smart and capable person, but even strong people 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. Maybe by going after that long-awaited goal you'll inspire others to do that same. As William Shakespeare wrote in King Lear, "If you do nothing you get nothing." and you have had enough of getting 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 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 - 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 could benefit the most from my experience. 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 coach have been invaluable? When was I most lost in my confusion about what I wanted?" My life, both personally and professionally, contained so much diversity but then I realized that there was a common thread in all of my experiences. I had acquired the life and business skills that could be useful to both women and men from employees to business owners. From parents who stay-at-home to working full-time.
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. I am an ACE Coach Accelerator Core graduate, based upon The World Business & Executive Coach training. I feel very confident in the skills I have acquired and I am ready to assist those who just need to find their way back to the road of success as it looks to them!
