Once upon a time, there was a young girl who enjoyed listening to people’s stories. Didn’t matter the subject, she would engage them in a conversation, ask a few questions, offer a few suggestions, and made sure to listen passionately because she noticed how happy people felt after sharing their stories. That was me and I’m happy to say… it still very much who I am today! 

It’s only fitting that I dove into behaviour management studies and chose leadership coaching as a career – more specifically self-leadership. I’ve always been interested in what creates happiness in people’s life – what motivates them to take action towards accomplishing daily tasks, reach goals, realize aspirations, and actualize dreams in life. I also became very interested in the opposite – studying people who lack motivation in 
pursuing their interests in life.   

Why self-leadership coaching? Having coached ‘professional leadership’ for years, I’ve long realized that for a leader to be able to inspire a group of individuals, they must have the ability to self-lead  – consciously influence their own thoughts and behaviours before being able to motivate the same in the individuals they lead. The key qualities required for self-leadership are: having self-esteem, self-respect, self-reliance, self-confidence, self-motivation and  self-determination. For ease of reference, we created a glossary of terms referenced on this page and throughout our website. Learn more…

My goal as a self-leadership coach is to inspire as many people as possible to find the appropriate life tools to make their world a better place for them to create a meaningful, rewarding and happy life.  I simply help them make the changes they want to make in their lives.

I sincerely hope our Choice Life Approach™ can help you get from where you are to where you want to be and what you want to achieve in life. How to become who you know in your heart and soul to be. Remember, asking for help is not a failure, it is part of being human and part of our journey towards reaching our goals and realizing our dreams in life. Heart & Soul Coaching and Retreats™ simply acts as your guide to help you gain a different perspective – perceive situations in life differently.

Our process guides you to make choices that are aligned with your values. Our approach, our techniques and tools help you build the courage required to welcome change as a means of bringing happiness into your life.

At times, our guidance is required to help develop self-esteem and self-respect by learning to let go of what no longer serves you such as limited beliefs, guilt, fears and anxiety in order to move forward in life. Sometimes, our assistance is needed to develop compassion and forgiveness – learning to forgive yourself and others before being able to take the necessary steps to establish new relationships and friendships in life. Now and then, our contribution is about learning to develop self-reliance, self-confidence, self-motivation and self-determination to become who you want to be in life – mentally, physically and spiritually to obtain a better job and further your career, or to loose weight and be able to do things you’ve always wanted to do in life, or again, to simply choose to live a well and peaceful life. Every so often, our support is required to develop self-confidence to simply try new adventures in life.

Don’t let your fears get in the way of you creating your happiness. Join us and see if we can help you achieve your goals towards creating a fulfilling and happy life.


Let us help you make the changes you want to make in your life.

It starts with you investing in yourself.
