How do you shift from years of ambivalence and fear in your personal and professional life to ever growing success and inspiration?
Kellie was reasonably happy in both her career and marriage yet something felt as if it was missing. This was by no means for lack of trying or striving, quite the opposite, Kellie had always been a high achiever. Even after completing her PhD she continued developing and harnessing her strengths. Like most of the women who find me, she was not at all looking for a coach. However, she stumbled across something I wrote on Facebook and it spoke directly to her. It was about raising the bar in your industry and being known as a heart centred leader and inspirer to those around you. These words ignited what has become a 2.5 year coaching relationship that has changed us both for the better.
Kellie signed up to a bespoke 6month coaching program where we worked on her relationship with every life area. This particular package placed great emphasis on her marriage. It soon became apparent that she was at a crossroads and together we navigated the ending of her marriage in a respectful and kind way to her former husband and their daughter. Kellie was blown away by the profound shifts and has since signed on 4 more times continuously as we moved to reviving her career and created shifts in the way she interacts with her clients, spends time and energy. Ultimately shifting to a values approached where Kellie can serve her clients more deeply while earning more money.
When I first met Debbie, I felt like some aspects of my life were stagnating, but I didn’t know how to see them clearly and get unstuck. In the time that we have worked together, so many amazing shifts, insights, and a-ha moments have happened!
My private practice was growing slowly and bringing in some income, but I was not connected to a deeper mission and vision. Fear of making a wrong decision, fear of abundance, and fear of moving out of my comfort zone had kept me circling the same block for years:
One of the biggest wins was shifting my mindset to session-focused service to value-focused service – which resulted in my first sale of a six-month program in which I can facilitate a deeper level of healing and begin to ask for what this value is worth financially. I cannot underestimate what a huge shift this has been for me, and it wouldn’t have happened without Debbie’s patience (did she need patience!), honesty, humor, and commitment to helping me get out of my own way.
Another important shift in my practice was fully stepping into my power as an energy psychologist and owning it. As I do that more and more, with Debbie’s support, my work has expanded and taken me in exciting directions I could have never predicted.
My marriage was also stagnating, and I was deeply stuck in a place of ambivalence and fear. Debbie helped me to heal years of resentment in my marriage and view the relationship with loving and curious eyes. I was also able to take an honest look at my role in the relationship and patterns that have shown up in all of my relationships. Through my willingness to open myself up this relationship and my intuitive guidance in a deeper way, I was able to reach a loving decision to end the relationship. With Debbie’s help, we were able to navigate a separation that was cooperative, respectful and held our daughter’s best interests as the top priority.
In this next phase of my life, Debbie and I are working on helping me reconnect to parts of myself as a woman, mother, healer, and business owner. She has also supported me through the grieving process of the end of my marriage. She has a beautiful ability to hold space when needed and to gently push when needed, always keeping our work connected to my goals and vision for my life.
One of the biggest gifts I have received from my work with Debbie is being able to recognise my patterns of self sabotage and self limitation and consciously shift to a place of action and courage. She has earned my trust, respect and awe a million times over and I can’t thank her enough.
Debbie’s honesty, deep intuition, and insight has helped me to transform my business.
