On your marks, get set…erm…not quite yet.
I know you’re a great coach with a wealth of life experience and passion for this work, you love people and see the possibilities for them, you harbour a desire to lead real change and what’s more, you absolutely know you can.
You’re brilliant and you’re ready to have your own successful coaching practice but - you’re struggling and you don’t know how to move forwards.
Permission to make a few assumptions?
You’ve invested a lot of time, money and energy in coach training and LOVE to coach but you just can’t find regular, reliable clients who will pay you what you’re worth.
You’re reading books on starting a business, you research online, start to pull together a plan, but there are SO MANY directions you could head in you don’t know where to start and your fear of getting it wrong paralyses you.
You can’t seem to unravel your thoughts or find any clarity and you’re desperate to get through this, to have a practice plan, to coach and to lead change!
You start your days with the best intentions for marketing yourself and telling the world about your coaching, but it feels overwhelming because you don’t know who you are speaking to or what you should be saying.
You want to run a successful practice, doing the work you love and getting paid well for it, but you aren’t an expert in marketing, branding, business strategy or social media.
You feel sporadic inspiration, but it’s exhausting doing this alone, it’s impossible to stay motivated and consistent and there’s huge self-doubt.
You intuitively know that things can be different. You know that with the right coaching and mentoring this WILL change. You know that now is the time to move forward.
You may well be feeling like it’s a non-starter, that having your own successful practice without burn-out just isn’t possible. I want to assure you that this isn’t true.
I was super-enthusiastic when I completed my coach training in 2008, I threw in my full time job to pursue this as a business shortly after and It soon dawned on me that I was ill-prepared. I’d slavishly read, research, skim and scan for the silver-bullet strategy I needed to make this business work. But it lead to exhaustion, anxiety and overwhelm.
It was asking for help and reaching out for 1-1 mentoring and support from a number of experts that transformed everything. I pushed through and with the accumulated knowledge transformed my practice. I now Mentor coaches like you to move through their process and come out the other side thriving.
Here’s what your life as a Coach and Practice owner is about to look like:
You wake up with clarity and a plan-of-attack’ for your day, you know that you’re going to publish some rich content on Social Media and you feel excited and utterly compelled to share your message with the world.
Coaching has become a successful vocation, you are being paid appropriate fee’s without question and you drive your practice with a solid marketing strategy.
Inspiration and motivation flow as you know you have an ally who’s both got your back, can coach you through the difficult mindset blockers and advise on the next steps to your coaching success.
Your energy and focus feel well used and deliberate, you take a powerful stand for your ‘tribe’ and in response, new clients easily find you, clients who are your perfect fit, your ‘tribe’.
You breathe easy knowing your best course of action, clarity of thought returns and the overwhelm subsides, granting you breathing space and the freedom to coach your clients from a place of ease and fulfilment.
Purpose - the Arrowhead
We coach to discover your unique 'arrowhead', the work you were born to do. The mission that matters, I'll challenge you, you'll need to be courageous, grow you, hold you to the fire and get you through the limiting beliefs that keep you stuck.

To hone and refine our coaching approach so that we show up from a place of 'mastery'. Our purpose coaching will reveal where you play small, it will overcome limiting beliefs and breakthrough many barriers.
Without an 'arrow head', we lack a true direction. We are at the mercy of sporadic inspiration, chance and short lived coaching relationships that aren't rewarding for either party. We know that we can coach anybody, but who are we called to be the champion for? I make up you are here to pioneer a very specific flavour of change, for a very specific demographic of people. They need you. You are here to lead a movement that matters - nobody can occupy this role like you do, and when you discover this, everything changes.

We'll establish your offer, your products, your authentic voice and how to stake your claim as an agent of change. With these things in place, you'll fly.
And why the symbol of the arrow?
Because above and beyond everything we do with and all we create, we have to engage in our our self growth work. The arrow symbolises bravery, the hunt with intention, focus. We must be in a position where we are willing to remain courageous and continue to develop ourselves in order to be in truly in service others.
Running through everything is bravery. I'll coach you to ensure you are standing in your power and burning through old limiting beliefs, saying YES to what you consciously choose to have in your life and NO to that which doesn't serve
