Life is a gift, an amazing adventure full of possibilities.

All of us have the inner tools to adapt and thrive. So, we should maximise our life experience, our contribution on the planet, take actions and propel ourselves forward to be the best we can.

That sounds great but life is complex & becoming even more.

We are bombarded by information, by commitments; there is so much going on. And yes sometimes we get overwhelmed and a bit lost.

With the support of a professional life coach

we can get that special space and time to pause, reflect, explore to then re-establish our life balance to move forward confidently and happily.

People’s uniqueness is what is driving my coaching practice.

In my work, I am very curious and attentive to what my client says and does not say. I combine my various skills of coaching and yoga principles (breathing, mindfulness, intention and body movements) to assist in finding clarity, personal awareness and growth.

I have worked with many people from different walks of life

who were a bit lost, a bit stuck, and going through challenging life transitions; high school students, university students, young adults, young mums, older mums, professionals, retirees, migrants. Working in partnership with them and witnessing their personal development in finding clarity, purpose and direction in their life has been a highly rewarding and profound experience for me. I love what I do.

When you work with me. All it matters is you.

You will embark on an amazing self-discovery journey. With me you will identify what is important to you; what you like and dislike, what motives and excites you, what are your strengths and your limited beliefs. You will unlock your unique potential to continue on your life journey with vitality and contentment.

“The mind is not a vessel that needs filling, but wood that needs igniting.” —Plutarch

working with me

My coaching is guided within the ICF Code of Ethics and Practice. As you start on your personal development journey, you will work in close collaboration with me, your coach. It is therefore important that we have the Initial Introductory Session (see below) to meet and see if we are a good fit. 

As a coach, I work from the principle that you are the expert and master of your own life, and you want and are committed to positive change. In partnering with you I will create and hold a safe space for you to discuss and reflect on your current challenges so that you can find solutions. In working with me you will explore, experiment and re-invent yourself so that you can flourish. I will genuinely support you in your endeavors to be the best of you. As a coach I am driven to unlock and speed up your ability to re-establish your life balance. I coach for results!

We all are the masters of our own lives. We all have choices and natural talents to harvest. It would be my real pleasure and privilege to work alongside you to inspire you to explore and reach your full life potential.

“Change your life today. Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay.” —Simone de Beauvoir

black and white.jpg

As a young girl growing up in France I have always been attentive to others, wondering what it is to be human. I witnessed my parents going through the trials and tribulations of bringing up 4 children to then go through a divorce that left most of my younger siblings scared.

I chose to study nursing and absolutely loved it. It responded well to my need to help people. I thrived professionally working in a teaching hospital in Paris.

When I met my- to become - Australian husband my life was amazing. I was very happy I had it all.

However, moving to Australia in the late 1980s was more challenging than I anticipated. And after 6 months my wheel of life became so “dented” that I was about to crash. I felt lost, stuck, disempowered, totally out of balance. It would have been so easy then to go back to France. But I decided to hold on and push through. In the process I found some strength and ability and lots of fears and limited beliefs.

I succeeded in re-establishing my personal and professional life balance in Australia. Today I am a French and Australian citizen who thrives in both countries.

 “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” —Albert Einstein 

In 2014, when my two adult children left home, I decided to leave my academic career in health. I wanted to undertake a different path to help people, away from the medicalised world. So, I went to India to study yoga and undertook a life coaching course.

This new journey, to work as a freelance professional, has been a learning curve for me. I am very excited to be on that path which reflects my deep core values to helping people make positive changes for a healthier and happier life.

“Just like me you can adapt and get the life you deserve. If I can do it you can do it.” —Christine Smith
