I’ve been in a corporate job for over 20 years. It wasn’t until recently that I realized how much my job kept me busy, but didn’t help me grow as a person. The aspect of my job that I truly loved was the connection with people. That is, the mentoring, coaching and helping people to help themselves. My work also gave me an opportunity to connect with people from many walks of life, to listen and understand the delicate balance around work, family, parenting, kids, as well as their own health and wellbeing. I also have lived experiences with two children myself, and it’s clear to me that our children are growing up in a very different world to the one I knew as a child.
My passion is to help families embrace health and well-being now, and into the future. My qualifications and experience include:
- International Coaching Federation trained Master Life Coach
- International Coaching Federation trained Master Neurolinguistic Programming practitioner
- Standing Strong® Licensee, certified Standing Strong® Instructor and youth coach
- Current Queensland Working With Children Blue Card
- Mental Health First Aid
- Performance and Leadership Consultant and Coach
- Over 20 years of strategy and business management
- Over 2 years life coaching with children and adults
- Bachelor of Science degree (marine biology major)
Why Teacup Coach
There are numerous reports, articles and personal stories that highlight the decreasing health and wellbeing of our communities, especially our youth. With the pressures of social media, school, family life, disasters – the pace of life is busier and the information overwhelm is apparent more than ever. The National Children’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy released in 2021 states that “an estimated 50% of adult mental illness begins before 14 years of age” and that “in 2015, anxiety, depressive disorders…accounted for three of the five leading causes of disease burden for children aged 5-14 years”.
The greatest influence in a child’s life is their parents. Being a parent myself I know we are busy, so it’s important to provide our children with positive, supporting and uplifting experiences. Focusing on empowering families, and a holistic and preventative approach, Teacup Coach aspires to foster a health and wellbeing culture in our families and community.
The village approach of Teacup Coach empowers kids while easing the pressure placed on parents. Bringing children together gives them the opportunity to learn from and support one another. By providing our children with the tools and resources to overcome challenges and realise opportunities, we can cultivate a generation that fosters confidence and the resilience to be their best – setting them up for success.
Youth coaching is the gift of allowing someone to become your child’s personal cheerleader, sounding board and shoulder to lean on.
Personal life coaching gives you the time and space to be your best for your family, and yourself.
"The community at Teacup Coach grows stronger each day as we learn from one another and discover the joy of living in a safe environment where we all feel free to be ourselves."
