"A coach is someone who tells you what you don’t want to hear, who has to see what you don’t want to see, so you can be who you always knew you could be.” 

Tom Landry

Life Coaching, embraces your whole life and aims to bring success, balance and fulfillment to all areas of it. We will begin by discovering and defining your goals, vision, values and priorities.  This helps build awareness that leads to insight.  Combined with conscious intention we can then design meaningful and powerful actions, which together, form the steps to make achieving those goals a reality.

Areas of Life Coaching


You can bring different topics to focus on in each personal coaching session, picking what is the most relevant and urgent in your life at that time.  Although topics may vary, we always keep the overall goals and vision in mind, making sure actions and decisions are all fitting into the bigger picture and are aligned with your overall vision.

Some example life coaching topics are:

  • Goal setting and life purpose

  • Personal growth, self awareness and insight

  • Change management – creating change and transitioning through it

  • Confidence

  • Fulfillment and happiness (personal and professional)

  • Career development, performance, time management and efficiency

  • Leadership (in life or at work)

  • Work-life balance

  • Creating stronger and more fulfilling relationships and connections

  • Health and wellness

  • Overall life balance

  • Stress management

What is Life Coaching?


One of the most important roles of a life coach is to help you reach your goals faster than you would have on your own.  However, it is also important that during that transition, you are moving towards those goals in a way that is authentic, valuable, thrilling and fulfilling.   This will create long lasting, positive change.


Life coaching is an empowering process, which puts the you in the driver seat of your life.  Your coach

is not just along for the ride or to tell the you what to do.  It is a process that is co-created together.  Your coach will encourage and challenge you to reach for what you truly want to create for yourself. 


Your coach will ask thought provoking questions, give objective feedback, input and suggestions, as well as challenge, support and encourage you throughout the process.  They will also help hold you accountable to the actions you define to reach your goals.

I was beyond burnt out and felt like my life was out of control.  Don helped me to get my priorities straight and evolve my life into one that I enjoy living!


Cultural Institution

My life was full of things that I did because I felt I was supposed to.  I wasn't enjoying what I was doing most of the time.  By getting really clear on what I wanted to do and didn't want to do, I have been able to fill my days with activities and people that I love!

The relationships in my life were draining me.  I put on a smile, but under it was resentful and unhappy.  As I work with Don, I'm learning to set appropriate boundaries, take care of me and most importantly, live authentically.
