I'm honoured to have worked with and earned the trust of so many people. I love seeing my clients grow into themselves in ways they didn't realize were possible. I strive to empower my clients with tools that they can take and use for the rest of their lives. 

 I see Rachael, and have referred many of my friends to her, because she is really good at what she does. She listens, is helpful and is a straight up real-talking teller of truth. What I like most about her is that she's very goal-oriented while also being focused on the present. From her I have learned about self-care, self-love and mindfulness. These things can be overwhelming to approach alone. Having someone there to keep you accountable and check in on you while you are going through something difficult is essential to healing and being the best person you can be.                                                                                                 Erin, 28, Editor/Writer

  Rachael pushed me to overcome my inertia of being ‘stuck’ and not making progress in my life. I can honestly say that i am different person now than two years ago, in almost every way. My confidence has increased dramatically and for the first time in a long time I have felt proud and optimist about my future.    Rachael is very professional while still being able to engage casually - it allows for open and honest dialogue. She gets to the salient points fast, no rambling, no blah blah blah, and creates structure in sessions. She asks tough probative questions that a client may feel reluctant to address for various reasons, but which are in most cases the obstacles that need to be acknowledged and health with to bring about real change. She employs various techniques that are tailored to her clients.                                                 Julian, 42, Paramedic

 "I feel comfortable with Rachael and can say anything to her without the fear of being judged or rejected or feeling embarrassed.

 Since starting my sessions with Rachael, I find myself able  to think more clearly. I feel much more confident in myself and am able to focus better on the things I want. Her insightful perspective and advice have opened my eyes to seeing life more positively - despite the circumstances we face each day - big or small.                                                                                        Rhea, 29

 I leave my sessions with Rachael with a specific plan of action and a sense of clarity and optimism.  I’ve developed effective self-care strategies. I’ve increased my self-esteem and self-acceptance. I’ve realized that I am capable of having more of a positive impact on my own life than I thought.                                                                 James, 24, Musician

 I don't know what to say... when you meet her, you'll just get it... you'll vibe with her.  She lets you sit on the couch whichever way you want... we can have fun and joke around while still talking about real stuff and being productive.  It never feels like it's her job... it feels like she just naturally knows what I need to hear and how to keep me growing.                                                                             Sydeny, 24, Student

 My time with Rachael has been extremely progressive and valuable. I have grown tremendously from working with her. Over the last 10 months, I have transformed into a more self assured and outgoing individual. I've learned to love myself for everything that I am and continue to be the wonderful person that I am, despite the challenges or anxieties I may face. I can now face the world without second guessing myself.                                      Anna, 24, Fashion writer and Freelance Stylist

 Rachael is amazing! I would her to anyone who is going through a rough time in their life. She listens with no judgment. Walking out of her office you will feel like a whole new person and it's the best feeling ever! She'll help you shine the light to get through the darkness in your life. Every week she gives me a task to do for the week and ti's a take  that is going to help me better myself in the future. I like her positive support towards me.   Trish, 29, Entrepreneur, Behaviour Therapist

 "I left feeling energized... I could see my reactions clearer, and my life clearer."  "I would say go open-minded - be prepared to look deeply perhaps at some area you wouldn't have thought about. Very soon if you follow Rachael's coaching life will change for the better, or you will leave a workshop/retreat feeling renewed."  "I learnt that in my life I've constructed thought patterns of how to deal with things. Some are good, but some cause problems. If you can change your thought process towards the issue, there can be real positive changes."                                                                Belinda, 50, Writer

  Since seeing Rachael I have moved out on my own, fallen in love, worked hard for an amazing promotion at a job I love and built strong and encouraging habits in my own life.    For years I believed that I wasn’t worthy of anyone’s time and that I was just slowly passing through life miserable and unmotivated. I now see, with Rachael’s help, that life is worth living and something that I want to fight for every day. If I have a bad day, I’m never ashamed or embarrassed and have learned to acknowledge and accept how I feel and to take those feelings and turn them into something positive.                                                Chloe, 27, Program Associate

  Creating a safe space, free of judgement is something Rachael excels at. She will make you realize that no problem is too big to work through, or too small to deserve attention. She is a remarkable listener and has an insightful way of expressing the very challenges you are working through, clearly and concisely.     Seeing R  achael is not just an outlet for me.  My time with her has helped me become more effective at working through challenges.  I am more patient with myself, and more willing to learn from any hardships I face, rather than feel defeated by them.                                                    Effie, 24, Student

        Rachael created a safe space for me to share and understand my true thoughts and feelings. She did it free of judgment, and at my own pace.  I met Rachael in 2013, at a low point in my life. I could not let go of past failures and beliefs. Rachael helped me reinterpret and reevaluate my experiences and values. I became an active participant in my life, and a much happier person. She also gave me the tools I needed to move forward, and for that I am forever grateful.    p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000}

 I have found comfort in Rachael's newfound presence in my life; she's provided a lot of guidance for me. I've been able to actually speak about problems with her that I've never spoken to anyone else about!

I'm starting to feel like my old self again!  Lauren, 24, Teacher

 Rachael has a gift - she is a catalyst for change. She has an effortless ability to listen, empathize, empower and provide a bridge to get you from A to B wherever you are in life. She knows the right questions to ask, can jump into your shoes and see things from your perspective. She has a giant tank  of unending patience and optimism. I would recommend her to anyone.   I've grown and changed on so many levels. I've learnt to stop doubting myself, to not be mastered by my thoughts and in some ways, completely redesign and recreate the shape and course of my life.                                       Cindy, 38, Teacher and Photographer

  Rachael's calm, non-judgemental and friendly demeanour creates a safe environment for people. She teaches people to analyze situations from different perspectives even though at times its difficult to see it. It's like rolling a bowling ball (your new viewpoint) down a hill for the first time (new way of thinking that needs to be carved out in your brain). Once the grooves are made it will slide down that new track much easier. This allows people to be more open minded and better able to handle the situation in a stronger more positive manner. Thank you, Rachael for sharing your talent.                                    Gina, 40, Project Managaer and Mom
