My Approach

I see you.

I will see you for all that you are without judgement. I will see you for the beautiful soul that are you are and help you to see your potential, even if you don't see it for yourself. I will not encourage you to change yourself but rather elevate you to show up in this world as the greatest version of yourself.

I hear you.

I will give you my undivided attention and listen with an open heart. I will give you space to speak your truth and lend an open ear to release your anger, fears and self-doubts for I believe that self-expression is the greatest form of medicine towards healing self-limiting beliefs.

I honour you.

I will respect your individuality and meet you where you are at. No goal is too big or too small. I will honour your experience and struggles with the knowing that the obstacles are the way towards a deeper connection to yourself and an opportunity for self-growth.

What makes me different from other coaches?

1.  I am an expert

With over 12+ years in the industry and 750+ clients, I am expert in the field of fitness & nutrition and I have the credentials and real client testimonials to back it up. Just ask!

 

2.  This isn't my  "side hustle"

I believe that this work is my true calling and my life's purpose, not just a job. I have dedicated my life to helping people step into their personal power and it brings me SO much joy!

Being paid is just a bonus.

 

3.  I will respect your   time  and  energy

I understand that your time and energy is a precious gift that should not be wasted. I work with an efficient and effective approach so that you get results without compromising your health.

 

4.  I  walk the   talk

I live an authentically healthy lifestyle, but I am compassionate and supportive because my life has not always been this way and I can truly understand where you are coming from.
