Do you wish you had more hours in the day? Have you forgotten what it feels like to be rested and to feel good in your skin? Do you feel selfish if you think about taking time out for yourself?
I see you. I've been there.
Coaching and Yoga to reclaim your
best self and to live a balanced life
I work with caregivers who feel crushed by the weight of responsibility.
My coaching programs are designed to find practical solutions for those who are spread thin, feel like they are constantly dropping the ball, have zero time for themselves and who are utterly exhausted. These programs recognize the difficult emotions that can come from being a caregiver.
I have been there. I was the caregiver for my husband for several years following a serious car accident that left him with physical and cognitive disabilities. In a split second, I became his sole caregiver and the single parent of our two young daughters. I existed in survival mode for two years after the accident, suffered caregiver burnout and felt a sense of helplessness I never thought possible.
By the third year, we were starting to find our groove again and our younger daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. That came with a steep learning curve, fear, sadness, frustration and many sleepless nights.
I know what it’s like to feel anger and guilt, to feel completely alone and powerless to change anything. My family has come a long way. My husband and I have come a long way as a couple. I've come a long way as a person. I feel compelled to be a supportive force for those in similar situations.
Maybe you’ve already tried other programs.
Maybe you think you couldn’t possibly add another “to do” to your list and feel like laughing yourself right off my website. I urge you to keep reading…let me frame this for you.
After working with me, don’t be surprised when you:
rekindle that spark that used to be yours
drop the guilt over the resentment and anger you might be feeling
disengage from the “should’s” that trap you in a vicious cycle of frustration, sadness, hopelessness and more guilt
have happier relationships
make time for your own needs
You may have heard the expression “you can’t pour from an empty cup”. You wouldn’t be the first to get stuck in a mindset where your life is happening to you. Try as you may, you simply cannot gain control. I’m here to reach for that steering wheel with you. I hate to say it - but I will say it because I know it’s true - you cannot keep going this way forever. If you don’t make a change, nothing will change.
Why my programs?
It’s not just about my personal experience.
I'm a Registered Yoga Teacher with additional training in teaching mindfulness meditation. I am also a Coach that practices the Integral Coaching Method, which is rooted in the psychology of change and views the person in a holistic manner.
Let’s face it, change isn’t easy. Our beliefs, perceptions and behaviours need to be understood and acknowledged before change can take place. Change can be uncomfortable at first. It needs to be practiced. It needs accountability. It needs compassion when we slip up and dust ourselves off and try again.
If you're ready to make a change in your life, I am here to be in your corner every step of the way.
