What is
Life Coaching?

Life Coaching helps you bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in your life. 

What kind of topics can I
bring to Life Coaching?

Most people come to coaching because they feel stuck in their life or career, or they are going through a big life transition. Here are a few examples: 

  • Feeling stuck or unfulfilled in their current job or career
  • Struggling to manage stress and overwhelm in their daily lives
  • Navigating major life transitions
  • Going through a breakup
  • Seeking to boost self-confidence and overcome self-doubt
  • Battling with procrastination and a lack of motivation
  • Wanting to set and achieve specific personal or professional goals
  • Wishing for greater purpose and clarity in their life’s direction. 
  • I want to be more confident in my self employment
  • Difficulty making a complex life decision
  • Wanting more clarity about one’s true identity
  • Looking for a sense of purpose

Who do you work with?

I coach people who want to be themselves and follow unconventional paths. People who like being successful with their work & want meaningful relationships. People who are creative and passionate.

My clients come from different walks of life. They're PhD Candidates and Academics, Creatives - Writers, Painters, Photographers and Creatives in the Tech field, Mothers & Parents..

Each life coach works a bit different.

Ever experienced moments when you know what you want to change and where your habits come from, but implementing change feels like a challenge? Integrating your nervous system into your growth is essential for long-lasting transformation.

My coaching style incorporates somatic tools, helping you thrive in a holistic way.

I'm here to collaborate with you, not as a therapist or mentor, but as a guide. I encourage you to explore new perspectives, release what no longer serves you, and embrace your strengths. I provide a framework for connection to your inner guidance - and cheer you on in your steps towards your goals.

Coaching is about improving your relationship with yourself. 

We create a space, where you can reconnect to your own inner guidance. You get to let go of old habits and beliefs that no longer serve you. Through somatic tools you learn to relieve stress and emotional pain, so that you can pursue a thriving life from a place of true connection to yourself. Learn to deliberately choose how you want to feel as you gain the clarity and courage for your next steps.

Whether you need support with relationships, work, ADHD or more - 

coaching provides a space to gain clarity on your challenges and goals. With non-judgemental collaboration, you'll unlock practical solutions tailored to your needs. Expect to walk away with courage to authentically express yourself and take purposeful steps toward realizing your full potential.

Relationships can be so amazing & full of magic. Yet if your relationship feels intense, stuck in dynamics or even limiting – it is time to reconnect to yourself and get clarity on the next steps. Whether you need support through times of breakup, or with showing up as the partner you want to be - you are not alone in this process.

In our coaching you get to imagine what an awesome relationship could look like for you. Let go of the patterns that no longer serve you, and allow for your relationships to be about growth and true connection.

Exclusive romantic couple, polyamorous, platonic relationships, families of choice - as a coach I support different forms of relationships and am non-judgemental, when it comes to living your personal version of awesome relationships.
