What is your niche (coaching focus)?
Holistic wellness coach.
Who is your ideal client?
The spiritually awakening soul.
What inspired you to become a life coach?
I wanted to become a coach when I overcame past abuse from both my mom and ex-partner. I struggled for years never knowing who I was, how to be me, people pleasing, always needing validation from others, being dependent on others, and the list goes on. It was through spirituality and healing myself on a multidimensional level that I was able to find me. I wanted to help others find themselves again—to be reborn in their own light and not the light of what others desired for them to be.
How long have you been coaching?
I came into my awakening/gift in 2020, but I only officially stepped into giving clarity and guidance in 2021, and I decided this year I wanted to take it further into coaching.
How did you get your first client?
I went onto a facebook group and asked if anyone wanted to find clarity and receive guidance. Initially, I depended heavily on using Tarot cards as a healing modality—not to tell the future but to use my clair-knowing gift to bring to light things they didn’t even realize were in the dark.
How has your coaching journey changed your life?
It has made me break out of the matrix that I once belonged to. It has made me release the baggage I use to have wasn’t mine to carry. Everything that everyone expected from me, wanted me to be, was put on me based on their own unresolved issues. Once I started to heal myself on a multidimensional level, that’s when I had life again.
What is the most challenging part of being a life coach?
For me it is giving my energy to individual people. I want to serve so many people on a deep level, but, being a level 4 empath, I take on others’ energies and can get burnt out! For the love of wanting to give so much back to others, I have started to create online learning resources where I can help awakening souls to thrive and transform without draining myself.
What is the most fulfilling part of being a life coach?
When I hear clients say I GET IT, it makes sense, how did you know?, I know who I am! Hearing those words shows me my job is done! It’s when a client finds their own truth and it aligned to their soul without needing validation from others—mission completed!
What is your favorite coaching activity or exercise to do with clients?
I love using Tarot cards to draw out dark secrets and pain points for clients. I use a blend of spirituality, mindset and wellness to create therapeutic exercises.
What has been the most effective strategy for finding clients and/or growing your business?
The most effective strategy I use is just showing up, being me, and sharing my story, my truth. I always find that once I start sharing, people always can relate to my pain points and struggles.
What advise would you give YOURSELF back when you first dreamed of becoming a coach?
I don’t need to be worried about being accepted by everyone. I am fine just as I am. Those who hear me will come.
What is the impact you want to make in this world?
I dream that everyone who has been forced to submit and surrender against their own will rise and find their own voice and truth, with a burning love for self because the realize they are enough. They don’t need to be what ANYONE else wants them to be.
Is there anything else you would like to share with Transformation Coaching Magazine readers?
I just want everyone to know it is possible to become the vision of their dreams!
