Ok, so you want to know what Heart & Soul Coaching and Retreats® is about.  No problem. 

We’re about helping people make the changes they want to make in their lives.  I guess you can say, we’re about helping people make their world a better place for them to create a meaningful, rewarding and happy life.  We simply help people develop their ability to self-lead their life.  In other words, be aware and in control of their thoughts, behaviours and actions.  What this means is that everyone has the ability to consciously influence their own thoughts and behaviours in order to realize their aspirations, their goals, their dreams in life. There’s no magic to it.  What is required is knowing how to listen to our intuition – what energizes us, what we are passionate about in life; trusting it and get moving on what it is telling us to do.   



Knowing how to listen to our intuition simply means being aware of thoughts emanating from our soul’s mind, what we refer to as our ‘heart’.  Not our physical heart but our open-minded heart, the awareness that exists in each and everyone of us that has guided our every step since our birth, communicating to us – our purpose, passions, needs and wants in life.  A good practice is paying attention to what we are thinking when we first wake up from sleeping/resting.  It’s also good to write your thoughts down.  


Trusting our intuition requires us to have confidence – believe in ourselves.  We can develop our self-confidence through our ability to consciously influence our own thoughts and behaviours – our self-leadership ability.  This is where it can get tricky because our brain will try to talk us out of acting on our intuition.  Why?  Simply because it recorded patterns based on previous experiences that may have stressed us in our lives and now wants to protect us by making sure we remain calm, relaxed, and comfortable.  Since life is about evolving and growing through experiences, we need to train our brain differently.  Help it continue to develop and adapt to unforeseen experiences.  How?   Let it know that the newness, the risk you are experiencing does not place you in any danger and it is safe for you to take immediately action. 

Here’s an interesting fact about fear.  Did you know that the physical state that happens within your body when you experience fear is exactly the same as the physical state that happens when you experience excitement?  The difference between what happens when you are fearful or excited is what is happening in your brain – the messages it is conveying to you (positive thoughts supporting your well-being and personal development as a person, or negative thoughts holding you back).   


Reframing what you are thinking and telling yourself – from feeling agitated to feeling excited.  The key is to let your brain know that you’ve established a healthy life structure and created resilient boundaries based on your own values – what is important to you in life, what makes you the person that you are.  You’ve done this by developing and anchoring key self-leadership qualities (self-esteem, self-respect, self-confidence, self-reliance, self-motivation and self-determination).

to inspire you to develop these key self-leadership qualities so that you may create meaningful and rewarding experiences in life which eventually become a life filled with joy and happiness.  Having coached ‘professional leadership’ for years, I’ve long realized that for leaders to influence others, they must have the ability to consciously influence their own thoughts and behaviours before being able to inspire the same in the individuals they lead.


The best leaders in the world are not afraid of expressing their emotions and
sharing their feelings and thoughts with humanity. 
Not imposing their feelings of or opinions onto others. 

Most important thing to remember is that we are all meant to be learners in life, and not to let our fears get in the way of creating our happiness.  Take a look at how we can help you achieve this by clicking on images below.  The answer to what you’re looking for might just be one click away….

At Heart & Soul Coaching and Retreats®, our guidance is required to help develop self-esteem, self-reliance and self-respect in order to learn to welcome love, accept that you deserve to be loved for who you are, to be appreciated and respected for who you are, and to learn to let go of what no longer serves you such as limited beliefs and fears such as guilt, shame, anxiety, rejection, abandonment, jealousy, resentment, anger, loneliness, etc. 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 and be able to move forward 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, people seek our support to develop self-trust and self-confidence to simply try new adventures in life. 



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

It starts with you investing in yourself.
