Hi I’m Viv,

As a business coach for emerging women entrepreneurs and existing business owners it is my job to make sure you have all the confidence and tools you need to ensure your inevitable succeed.

I help women in business to find more joy, free themselves from fear and have the courage to take action. So that you get to live your life with more ease, joy and fun. Doing what you love with who you love.

Hello my friend,

I am so pleased you have stopped by to take some time for yourself.  I am guessing you want to make some changes to the way you are living and working right now?

Are you struggling to find the balance you are seeking, feeling stressed and overwhelmed much of the time?

Are you looking for the ONE thing that will be most influential in your business that will take you towards achieving your greatest success to date?

Do you want to know how to move past mistakes, quickly, so that they no longer hold you back?

Are you seeing other people brimming with confidence and wondering how you can have that courage too?

Are you trying to combat fears of failure or unworthyness?

Well, you have come to the right place.

For I am a people person and it is my mission to help you to rediscover the joy in what you do, to show you how to live free from fear and teach you how to take courageous action.

My interest in people began at an early age. I grew up living in a hotel and my first job was working front of house. Learning ways to make customers feel at ease and enjoy their stay. I know that when you are living a fast paced busy life, it can be hard to take time out to relax.  Yet finding joy everyday is absolutely essential to your health and wellbeing.

My first corporate job was in sales, working for a large finance house as a field business development manager. It seemed I had a talent for providing excellent service to my customers, probably honed from all those years in the hotel. I soon became responsible for training and developing internal and external sales teams. Teaching how to overcome fears around asking for the business and closing the deal. Enabling the salesforce to see it was not about sales at all, but about how they could best serve their customers by providing valued solutions to their problems.

When you are free from fear you are free to show up as your best self to serve your customers well.

After I married, my husband and I set up our own company building creating beautiful family homes.  Running a company was a completely different experience from being an employee and involved a high degree of risk. Many of my skills were transferable but I had to significantly up level my capacity to tolerate risk. I know that when you learn how to be courageous, you can take action that will swiftly drive your business forward.

The financial crisis of 2007, changed my life completely, as it did many families. It was during this time that I learnt that life was not necessarily always an upward trajectory. I lost my marriage, the company, my home and very nearly my mind.

Yet this break up and break down was also the chance for me to break open my heart to new opportunities. I used to view that time with regret and sadness, now I see it was a new beginning. The opportunity to truly grow into myself.

Through these experiences I have discovered who I truly am and now live a life that is connected to my core values and beliefs.

Now I want the same for you.

I believe that you were born to live a joy filled life, free from fear and courageous enough to take action when you need to. I want you to shine like brightly like a star.

It can be hard to rediscover who you are and find joy again after significant life events. I can teach you how to be courageous and show you how to open up to living a joy filled life on your own terms.

I know how it feels to lose your way, and your identity. I also know the joy of rediscovering yourself, finding the right path. I can show you how to tease out your dreams and desires.  Learning how to read a road map of your own mind so that it leads you towards your true destination. Get clarity on the steps you need to take to success. Live you life with purpose.

As part of my own healing journey, I found counselling to be enormously helpful. So much so that I trained as a counsellor myself so I could assist others to feel whole again. After 10 years of private practise, I began to notice a recurring theme with my clients. The main thing holding them back from living with joy, free from fear or keeping them from taking courageous action were habits.  Habitual thinking, habitual doing. These habits were often unconscious.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

If you are growing your business or starting up a new venture you need to clean up and clear away all those old habits and make way for new habits that support you where you are now and take you towards your inevitable success.

I can help you to bring your unconscious habits into the light, examine them and decide if they can stay or it’s time for them to go. Using my unique blend of therapeutic counselling to heal emotional wounds and success coaching to build strength and resilience.

Together we can build on your strengths, and help you find the right course of action.

In my life I have been blessed with many opportunities for transformation and new beginnings.

Here is what I discovered

Work is not work when you love what you do!

Absolute pleasure in sharing my gifts and serving customers well.

Helping people to be better at what they do, to rediscover joy in their lives, their work and in their family is my life’s work.

In order to do this I have learnt how to nurture myself so I can be on top form for my clients and my loved ones everyday.

I feel so grateful to live in a beautiful place and appreciate the chances I have created that enable be to take time out everyday. In the summertime I am often at the beach, swimming in the sea or sailing in the harbour. During the winter months you’ll find me skiing in the mountains. Immersing myself in leisure activities helps me to recharge my batteries so I can bring my best for those I love and serve.

I want you to feel able to take time out to restore yourself and immerse yourself in the luxurious feeling of relaxation that comes from knowing you are on the right path.

Taking time out for quiet reflection is really important. That is why I encourage you to give yourself the gift of time to work with me. Reflecting on where you are and where you want to go. Together we can use my framework to plan your route to inevitable success.

I love the yogic philosophy that teaches acceptance and curiosity. In a world where everyone is always striving for more, it is refreshing to allow space for compassionate understanding. Recentering on your core values so you are driven by those and can be freed from old beliefs that no longer serve you.

My one burning question was “When will I finally get it? When will I finally feel joyful? Then I discovered that was not a place in time. Until I was able to take back control of my life, take hold of the steering wheel and drive myself wherever I wanted to go I was ever going to feel contented. Because the ‘it’ I was searching for was a feeling and feelings are created deep within through your actions.

I had to learn how to be courageous enough to take action. Only then could learn how to create the feelings I desired, right here, right now. Living free from fear. Living a joy filled life.

It is my life’s work to bring all I have learnt to you, so that you can live with confidence knowing you are in the right place, living from your heart doing what you love.

If you are ready to say enough is enough, if you are ready to say yes to more joy and more freedom in your life then we need to talk. You are exactly the kind of woman I love to work with!
