1:1 Coaching & Mentoring with me
Guidance and support that's tailored to you.
ABOUT COACHING & MENTORING
Coaching & mentoring is a powerful and collaborative process that guides and supports you through your fertility struggles, empowering you to positively transform yourself and your life whilst you’re in the process of creating your family.
Using a combination of coaching & mentoring practices, I help you to reap the benefits of strengthening and tapping into your own inner wisdom whilst also offering you guidance around how to build new habits and mindsets that liberate you from the negative cycle of grief and despair that so often accompanies infertility.
Drawing on a variety of tools and techniques founded in ancient wisdom and modern psychology, I'll support you with adopting powerful changes that enable your life to blossom once again, irrespective of where you’re at on your path to parenthood.
Coaching + mentoring
My coaching & mentoring programs are for any woman who is struggling to become a mother. Whether you’re trying to conceive naturally, undergoing IVF, dealing with pregnancy loss or walking the path of egg donation and/or surrogacy.
I’ve experienced all of this and more so I truly understand your anguish.
I offer a tailored process that explores where you’re at now, where you want to be and how you want to feel, what your biggest challenges are and how you can move forward.
All of this from someone who not only has the expertise and experience, but who has also walked in your shoes.
Can you relate?
You’re feeling isolated and alone, overwhelmed by grief and anxiety
You’re fearful of making the ‘wrong’ decision, unclear about how to move forward
You feel like a failure as a woman, blaming yourself and your body for your situation
You’re struggling to let go and open to an alternative way to create your family (whether it be IVF, egg donation or surrogacy), which is keeping you stuck in a negative cycle
You’ve read the books, the done the diets, seen the practitioners and listened to the podcasts, not to mention all the countless hours you’ve spent researching online.
Maybe you’ve managed to prop yourself up in the short term, only to find that, as strong and resilient as you used to be, you end up spiralling back into grief and despair.
You feel time slipping away and you’re struggling to come to terms with how you’ll keep going, with no clear end in sight.
But what if you could find a way to create real and lasting change on every level of your being – right now?
What if you could experience the joy you desire before holding your baby in your arms?
If you’ve been struggling on your own for too long, an Open to Life coaching & mentoring program can help you to…
Reduce feelings of grief, anxiety, stress and despair
Shift your habitual thought patterns from negative to positive
Learn and apply the strategies and skills to help you manage challenging experiences on your path to parenthood

Make difficult decisions about how to move forward with confidence (including treatment options and whether to explore egg donation or surrogacy)
Build a path that takes you from childlessness to motherhood, whatever that path might look like for you
Reclaim a life lived from your heart and your feminine wisdom

My coaching & mentoring approach
Through coaching & mentoring, I’ll help you to uncover the unhelpful thoughts, emotions and behaviours that are adding to the pain of your fertility challenges and support you with carving a path to back to your centre.
I take a whole-person approach and all the modalities we will explore together are researched and evidence-based. Some of these include mindfulness, meditation, cognitive-therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, ego state therapy, positive psychology, neuroscience & nervous system health. All of this is underpinned be ancient philosophies including yogic philosophy, Buddhist psychology and Taoism.
Central to my approach is the process of helping you to slow down, still your mind, tune into your whole being and explore avenues that will enable you to alter the way that you relate to difficult thoughts, emotions and experiences.
I work holistically to assist you with building the mindset, the emotional toolkit, the new behaviours and the life skills necessary to navigate challenges on your path to parenthood.
Together, we’ll create the breathing space and perspective you need to elevate your life, irrespective of where you find yourself on your path.
