What do you love most about your job?

I get the most excited when I experience one of my clients either having a breakthrough, experiencing an emotion that they didn’t know was consuming them, or discovering something about themselves that they would not have found without accessing their guides through my intuitive channeling.

My Intuitive gifts allow me to pick up on things through our coaching sessions and through the exercises I ask my clients to do after each of our sessions that allow my clients to have a greater awareness of themselves and their life.

I love being a huge component of why my clients feel empowered. I love being able to go on their journey with them. When they are ready to do the work and when they do the work, something really special happens and it is a privilege be with them on their journey. It makes me so proud to watch clients shift, knowing I’ve helped facilitate that – that fuels me and validates my reason for being a coach.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I come from a background in Sales and Human Resources and I know a thing or two about career transition. As an Account Executive working within the Staffing and Recruiting Industry, I specialized in working with senior professionals and executives. Some were retiring and looking to get into consulting; some were looking for a career change; and others were laid off due to company mergers and restructuring. Even though all my clients came from different backgrounds, they all needed the same thing: coaching They needed someone to help them through their journey that took the time to understand their needs.

They needed coaching to figure out what they truly loved to do, or even wanted to do, and how to move forward with the next steps. I've assisted hundreds of job seekers with career planning and transitional employment strategies. I brought a unique perspective to providing support and a sounding board to people wanting to make positive changes in their life.

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always connected with spirit. I have been professionally reading people for several years as a Psychic Medium. I am able to channel the messages that their guides and loved ones want them to focus on to be able to move forward. I've noticed that most of my Intuitive Readings actually turned into Coaching with Spirit. As an Intuitive Life Coach, I utilize my intuitive gifts to get to the root of emotion or their disempowering belief a lot quicker than other modalities as I am working with and channeling a whole team of spirit guides.

Life Coaching FAQs

Your professional life coach will be able to advise you on the full range of coaching available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted life coach today.

You can have as many or as few life coaching sessions as you like. Many life coaches operate over the phone or via the internet so the sessions can easily fit around your schedule. Some people hire a life coach once every few months, some people have a session once a week.

Life coaching sessions will typically last up to an hour. Often after an initial assessment, sessions can be conducted over the phone, face to face, over email, via Skype/Zoom and occasionally through instant messaging.

During the session, your life coach will ask you a number of questions, such as what you want to achieve in life, what areas you're unhappy with and where you'd like to see yourself in the future. Although a life coach will work with you, it’s often up to you to challenge or reflect upon certain ideas you have to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don't feel comfortable with and all sessions will be confidential.

Life coaching is focused on your present and your future. Coaching accepts your current reality and looks to improve your outcome moving forward. Life coaches are not health professionals and they do not diagnose you. By contrast, therapy focuses on your past and looks to delve into past actions and patterns. It is analytical but not action-oriented.

Most mainstream health insurance providers do not cover the costs of life coaching because it is not considered a mental health profession in the same way therapists and counsellors are.

Life coaches do not need to have any formal or academic qualifications but you may want to look for life coaches who possess an industry-specific qualification, such as the Life Coaching Diploma or Personal Performance Diploma (PPD).

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which shows you reviews from past customers who have used their life coaching services.

A life coach is a trained professional who aims to help and guide individuals to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. They support clients on a journey to rediscover their own strength and abilities. This can include excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled at home, exploring your potential, managing health conditions and achieving life ambitions.

By harnessing techniques based on core psychological principles and intuition, life coaches empower clients and provide a toolkit of teachings to confidently face difficult challenges and overcome emotional barriers.

Life coaches can specialise in one of these particular areas of coaching: career coaching, executive business, group coaching, health and wellbeing, performance management, personal development, relationships, retirement, spiritual and youth coaching.

Rapport is one of the most important parts of life coaching. If you feel uncomfortable with your professional, you are unlikely to gain much from the session. It is advisable to get in contact before you book a session to meet your life coach so you can gauge how comfortable you are in their presence. It is worth talking to a few potential life coaches and ask questions.

Yes! As long as you have a strong internet connection, then your life coach can deliver sessions via an online video chat platform. Alternatively, it can be done over the phone.
