“Youtopia Life Coaching’ has grown out of my life-long passion to help people feel better about themselves. Having been a nurse for over 25 years my career began with helping people from a mainly physical perspective, healing their ills, relieving their pain, and assisting them to return to a state of wellness. In 2007, after the death of my parents, my career moved from mainstream health to a more holistic approach to well-being. My experience helped me understand the impact of emotional, mental and spiritual imbalance on a person’s physical health and ability to function in everyday life. My training and experience since that time in several complementary healing therapies has enabled me to assist people back to wellness in a more holistic way.
Others have described my coaching style and strengths as 'efficient and productive', 'having a passion for each person', 'genuine', 'congruent and trustworthy', 'super organised and professional' People often say that with me ‘what you see is what you get’. I have intentionally lived my life with an aim to keep my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual self in balance and to ‘practice what I preach’ so that I may be a good example to others. I firmly believe that if truly have a passion for what you do you want to be great at whatever it is you do, you should ‘walk the talk’ and not just treat it as a job. That is not to say that I don’t have work to do on myself. I imagine my life would be quite drab if I didn’t wake up each day wanting to be a better version of me. I have grown as a person through the journey I have taken, particularly over the last 12 years and can confidently say that ‘I like me’. You don’t have to like me too, but it is so important that you like the person you are. My life and relationships have improved ten-fold because I am sure about my values and beliefs and committed to making my life better. I want others to feel good and enjoy their life in their own unique way. Life coaching enables me to ‘pay it forward’ and share the skills, tools and knowledge that I have been taught.
My business name, ‘Youtopia’, represents that place where each person desires and deserves to reside. ‘Utopia’ is an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect. ‘Youtopia’ is that same place personalised just for you. It is the life you most desire for yourself. Your dreams, goals and aspirations are unique to you and therefore to fulfil your dreams I provide coaching that is intuitive and personalised to meet your individual needs. Coaching can also be supported, at your request, by a variety of healing modalities to give another less intellectual approach to your self-development.
