Coaching Discovery Sessions

Every day is an opportunity to create a beautiful life, from the inside out.
You just have to start where you are with what you have now.

Maybe this has triggered something in you because you see what is happening
in the world and you don’t believe it is possible to create a beautiful life – or at the moment your own life is feeling a little stale – or worse still – you feel that your life generally sucks.

I have had my fair share of sucky times in life but
I do believe we have to pick up the pieces and find a way.

I would like to help you if you will let me.

Perhaps there is something you would like to create or begin.
you want to change a long-held belief.

Enough is finally enough and now is the time.

It is never too late to start anew.  Start bringing that idea to life.
Begin realising that dream.
Be who you truly are.

This can be in any area of your life.

It’s Your Time
You don’t have to have a desire to create a huge business empire.   Your idea might be to simply find a way to find your voice at long last, after bending to fit in with everyone around you.  Maybe, now is the time to finally open up to be truly who you are – perhaps taking up that creative project you have always longed to do.

In your growing into who you really are, you free others to do the same.  The shift that happens is greater than what is happening to you alone.  You inspire your friends, children, siblings, even your parents to do the same.

Don’t allow the desire or dream to die inside of you. 

What is Holding You Back?
Is it that you don’t believe it could be possible.  Is it too big?  Is it too overwhelming?  Believe me, you don’t have to work out the big picture now.  You will grow into that as part of the journey.  All you have to do is take the first step.  After that, every step becomes a little bit easier.

Make a Change
I have opened up available times for Coaching Discovery Sessions.  A Discovery Session is generally an initial coaching session.  As a coach, this session allows me to find out what is going on in your life right now, what challenges you are facing and where you feel things are out of balance. It is also an opportunity for you to experience life coaching,  perhaps for the first time.  There is sufficient time allowed so that we can go deep and have at least one aha moment.  By the end of this initial session, it can usually be determined if this would be the makings of a great coaching fit.  If so, a further session can be booked, if required.

“Coaching is not a luxury.
Coaching is increasingly recognised as an essential part of
professional and personal development.”
Ritch Litvin

All coaching sessions are designed to put you at ease.  I may start the session with a simple question of, what is on your mind right now?  Your answer will probably be something that is all-consuming,  using up much of your energy, perhaps causing you some stress or even occasionally keeping you awake at night.   But, upon delving this may not be the ‘thing’ that is the real crux of the situation. What is actually behind it all and would you like me to help with that?

So much of what obstructs you in your life are your beliefs.  These beliefs are not something you came into the world with, at the beginning.   Rather, these were gathered by you or imposed on you by those who touched your life in your early years.  Some of these beliefs limit you, but once identified, these can be dismantled through awareness and ongoing coaching sessions.

This is where the transformation happens.
Are you ready to open up your heart?  Are you ready to have greater trust and faith in yourself?

When you want more from life or to resolve something in your life, there is always change involved.  Change is not only scary for you, but for those who are closest to you, and there may be some resistance.  This can be managed along the way and you don’t have to go it alone. Change can be scary, but moving beyond fear is where the magic happens.

As your Coach, I aim to listen hard,  harder than possibly anyone has listened before and to sometimes ask the questions that nobody else would ask. But, above all I choose to bring to each session, kindness and compassion.

My Clients
My intention is to always serve my clients powerfully. My clients are heart-centred.  They are women who choose to move through their lives with a yearning to be the best version of themselves, but with kindness, compassion and empathy for others. Competition with others doesn’t enter the equation.   They recognise that competition relates to scarcity and insecurity. What they are craving is deep inner peace where they are not at the mercy of the external world.  This comes from the inner-self.

When you come to know yourself, you create goals in a different way.  You tune into inner guidance, messages and directions.  You can ask yourself, what is the goal behind the goal?
You can stay on purpose despite any fears and the opinions of others.

“When you stay on purpose and refuse to be discouraged by fear, you align with the infinite self, in which all possibilities exist.”
Wayne Dyer

How to Book a Session
Between now and the end of 2018, I have a limited number of appointments available for Discovery Coaching Sessions. All sessions will be conducted by phone, Zoom or Skype, depending on where you are based in the world.  (I am based in Sydney, Australia.)
Please allow 60 to 75 minutes for a session, with no interruptions.

You can book directly by using the link below to my calendar.  Upon making the booking you will receive confirmation of your booking.  I will be in touch prior to your booking to confirm details.

It’s at this stage, I will also send an invoice.  This can be paid via PayPal prior to your booking.

Some coaches charge for their Discovery Sessions and others offer them free of charge.  I charge a fee.  Free advice is generally taken with a grain of salt.  My time is valuable and so is your time.  I charge for my Discovery Sessions, but at a discounted rate of my usual coaching fee.

The cost of a Discovery Session is $55.00.
Payment is required no less than 48 hours prior to a session.

Cancellation & Refunds
The full fee will be refunded if notice of cancellation is given at least 48 hours prior to your session.  If cancellation is made with less than 48 hours notice, I will re-schedule your appointment for you.  It will be made at a mutually convenient time.
