Every woman is more capable than they believe.

One of my greatest frustrations is when women hold themselves back in life because they don’t recognise or believe what they’re truly capable of. It’s why I’m a life coach. I’ve made it my mission to help women identify and own their strengths, their talents and their loves. I guide women to understand what’s holding them back and give them tools to manage the changes needed to improve their lives for the better.

My story (the medium version)…

Helping others is a natural part of who I am. Back in 2001, I went through a very unexpected divorce that proved to be a big turning point in my life. As part of the healing process, I recognised I needed to start working on myself. Amongst many things, I did my first life coaching course with the goal of learning about myself and gaining the skills to help others. But the timing to do it as a profession back then wasn’t quite right so I continued along my corporate path learning skills that serve me well today and that I’m very grateful for.

It was in the last 5 years of my corporate career that I kept getting itchy feet. I knew there was  something more for me in life but I could never quite figure it out. Fast-forward to December 2013 when a speaker at a work conference said this ‘if you’re not passionate about what you do, people see straight through you’. It was that very moment that I made my decision to resign.

I had no plan, no answer to ‘what next’ only trusting that I’d find my way.

I launched into a course to become a Certified Workplace Trainer only to find that training people who weren’t invested in improving was not my thing. What I did discover was I wanted to help people who were committed to helping themselves. This is when I said yes to coaching.

But first, I knew that if I wanted to help others to the very best of ability, I needed to work on myself – mind, body and spirit and so I did.

Here’s what I believe…

That no matter how challenging your situation, the deep frustration and anguish you’re feeling, with the right guidance, support, encouragement, mindset and ACTION (intentionally capitalised because nothing will change without it), you WILL achieve your greatest desires.

I believe it because I’m living proof. It’s what gives me the ability to coach with great care and understanding. I know what it’s like to have a lack of self-belief and I don’t want that for other women.

And I have a 10-year old daughter. I want her to grow up knowing that she is capable of doing many great things, she just needs to know and believe in herself.

This is what I’m known for…

Taking women from overwhelm to clarity by helping them simplify their situation in a way that empowers them to navigate and implement changes.  I draw on nearly 2 decades of corporate experience, a passion for helping others, a keen interest in human behaviour (the why) and my skills as a certified coach to offer an outstanding coaching experience.

My friends, colleagues and clients describe me as –  kind, intuitive, down-to-earth, courageous, trustworthy, professional, fun, committed, amazing listener, confident, resilient, self-disciplined, calm, someone who walks their talk and self-motivated.

Here are some fun facts about me…

+ I’m number 6 of 7 children so I have life skills – empathy, compassion, resilience (growing up in the 70s was one big adventure), strength in the face of adversity (this serves me well) and impressive self-defensive skills (no choice with 4 brothers!).

+ I’m sure I was born doing the splits, seriously. Well, with a mother as a dance teacher, my splits at the age of 2 were impressive.

+ I’m a loud and proud coffee snob. I blame it on living in Melbourne for 10 years. If I accept an instant coffee, that’s the polite Elizabeth (and I’m very polite).

+ I’m a Pisces.

+ I’m well into my 2nd marriage to a beautiful man and my 10 year-old daughter completes our little family.

+ I’m a doer. Once I decide to do something, I’m 110% committed and I take the action required.

+ I love the outdoors – camping, walking and putting my feet in the ocean.

+ I don’t dwell, I learn what I need to and move on.

+ I respect that life is short and time is one thing we never get back. I work at using my time wisely.
