How to communicate effectively, and develop trusting relationships.

I am a life coach specialising in relationships, I can help you to discover how to communicate with more ease.  Are you struggling with relationships at work or at home?

Apart from life’s normal transitions such as teenager, young adulthood, spouse, parent, grandparent the truth is that life seems to throw at us “stuff” that we would rather not have to deal with…as an individual, small business owner, and coach, my strategy has been fairly simple, yet fundamental: strengthen emotionally, expand what I have and can and choose personal wellness, professional growth making significant decisions based on my desired lifestyle; the inclusion of family above all else.

My studies of human development started when my very own children were born, finding out pretty soon that I didn’t have a clue on how to raise children, let alone how to encourage them into becoming loving, intelligent, well-balanced adults.

Today I align my heart’s desire with mind & body before doing anything else. I have experienced illness, loss, failure, within my own self and family. I know that the support of a neutral skilled individual can coach and lead me through difficulties such as stuck states, and emotions far easier and with less struggle than if I were to go it alone.  Less stress, an increased understanding and awareness and best of all with the ability of how to do it better in the future is easier when you ask for guidance from a qualified coach as myself.   Asking for help did not come naturally for me and often I used my business as the excuse to go and get the help I personally needed.  By learning to do my self differently, change my mind so that I could improve on old strategies or replace them with new updated ones certainly led me to significant success in my businesses.

Would you be interested in how to communicate effectively and develop trusting relationships in business?

…you see my greatest growth in business success came when I was able to transform limiting beliefs I had formed as a child.  Changing my way of thinking and communicating resulted in me being more motivated to achieve my heart’s desires.  Those desires for me were cash in my back pocket from a profitable business; precious time with my family; international travel and sharing my learnings with others through coaching, training and speaking.

I came to understand the importance of being flexible and not being afraid to make major life decisions. My working career started as a legal secretary before becoming a dairy farmer and then a small business owner. I was compelled to take a more holistic and revolutionary approach myself which included wanting to share my skills and knowledge for the betterment of others.

It is my goal to support you and unlock what is preventing you from achieving your goals and desires giving you the tools to take back control of your life. I offer the gift of choice and the ability to make wise decisions today for a more fulfilling tomorrow.

Gratefully I have always questioned, “what if I could do it differently?”.  What if my relationships were better.   I used to ask “why are they not listening to me?” “How can I get my message across?”  In 2009 my husband said, “I don’t think I want to be married to you anymore”.  It was a quip but I had to re-think how I communicated at home – it had always been about business or the children.  We were business partners as well as life partners and I had forgotten that.  We have now been married 41 years this year and it is not through staying the same, it has been through re-inventing our relationship as our individual needs changed.   Realising that everyone is at choice individually does encourage effective communication.

1998 I studied sales and business leadership with Brendon Nichols; 2003 I gained a management communication qualification at the University of Waikato; 2009 I qualified NLP Master Practitioner and Trainer with Comms Plus in Auckland.  This made a big difference for me as I applied communication and sales strategies to advance my businesses through the GFC.  Making tough decisions whilst maintaining my relationships with my staff and customers.   In 2010 I qualified as an mBIT (multiple brain integration techniques) Certified Coach which uses 100-year-old proven breathing techniques that aligns your Heart, Head, and Gut-Brain.  2016 & 2017 I  became an Inner Work Coach with Marvin Oka and so it continues still to this day with Tony Robbins and Chloe Madanes; Mark and Magali Pesha in Strategic Intervention; Relationship and Group Coaching.

Alliance Success Coaching enables me to provide advice for individuals and small business owners.   Get a greater understanding of what you can do personally to communicate more effectively with your self first, your significant others and then watch the changes come about at work implementing the same processes and strategies.  My work focuses on understanding where you are at now; no need to re-hash the past although it is often helpful to hear your story.   Working weekly we put the ‘heart’ back into what’s important to YOU so you feel lighter, brighter and happier moving forward to achieve your goals.  The ability to take action is paramount.

It’s possible that you will find that which empowers you and unlock your greatest strengths.
