About

Hey lovely,

You’re here because you want to live from a place of truth. You want to feel connected to who you are at your core and unapologetically radiate that out into the world.

You desire to connect with like minds and hearts and contribute in your own unique way, sharing your gifts with others.
You are ready to BE part of the change so needed in our world.

So what’s been stopping you?

An inner battle is afoot. One that may even be invisible to the world outside which makes your suffering seem tricky to explain. Maybe you have the ‘perfect life’ or even a ‘good enough’ life on the outside but something just isn’t right.

You may identify this feeling as an emptiness or void, a numbness, a deep sadness or anger but have no idea what to do with it. The common approach is that we throw buckets of guilt and shame at our discomfort and tell ourselves we have no right to feel this way.

The problem is, this doesn’t work. You’ve probably already tried the ‘I’ll beat myself up’ approach and found it only makes things worse and adds to the confusion.

Left untreated and the problem begins to show up in other ways, often causing physical symptoms, illness, injuries and dis-ease in the body. It can affect our relationships, work and life circumstances too.

All are signs that we are out of alignment with our truth and pushing hard to maintain a façade of what we THINK we should be doing or striving for.

Well I’ve got you!

My work is all about bringing you back into alignment with your inner truth. When reconnected to who you are and the gifts you’re here to share you can connect authentically with those around you and begin to change the outer circumstances of your life. It starts with identifying your thoughts and many of these may even be long-standing beliefs you’ve held since childhood that have shaped your life up to this point.

You can choose the thoughts you want to hold onto and let go of those that have been causing you pain. It sounds simple and it is in some ways but it’s definitely not easy which is why I’m here to help you.

“As within, so without”, a quote attributed to Hermes Trismegistus, reflects the transformations I’ve witnessed in my clients as they reconnect to themselves. By changing their inner world of thoughts and beliefs, so too their outer worlds change.

Increases in the abundance of love, wealth, freedom, peace, empowerment and social impact are some of the outcomes that began with a single decision, to ask for support on a personal journey of reconnection.

“What I needed was support and guidance that was both practical and action oriented but also knowing that someone held the belief for me that everything was going to be fine. I knew if I didn’t take action things would either stay the same or get worse. I had constant headaches and troubled sleep, my body was telling me something needed to change”  ~  Emma

Your Coach

Some of my identities include mother, wife, Aussie born, Kiwi adopted, surfer, writer, seeker of truth and advocate for the shining light in others. I prefer a simple existence, I live in a small town on the coast and couldn’t be without books, art, music and the ocean.

I came to this work via a long windy road of self-development. I’ve pursued different routes of learning from formal tertiary education to mentorships with some brilliant but more ‘woo woo’ teachers. One of my top values is ‘perspective’ so I enjoy looking at things from various angles and then implement what feels resonant to me. Thus, my approach is a delightful mish-mash of science, philosophy, psychology and spirituality.

I was born a highly sensitive and empathic child. I had no way of contextualising this in my early life, I thought everyone saw and felt energy the way I did. Early childhood was somewhat blissful but that ended with the harsh reality of school. Being mind-squished and judged by a system that was inherently one dimensional (back then) was a huge creativity killer for me and my self-worth suffered.

Some four and a half decades later, gazillion different attempts at ‘regular jobs’, a few shocker relationships, a divorce and remarriage, kids, international moves, years of study and practice and a commitment to the never ending journey of ‘knowing better so I may do better’, here I am. Showing up as 100% me. Perfectly imperfect but here to support and encourage you to do the same. I can’t wait to see you shine.
