This is what some of my clients have had to say about their experience with live life coaching:
"I started working with Steph during an incredible low point in my life, and going to see her sparked a light inside of me. For the first time in a long time, I felt safe and comfortable enough to talk through my issues and confront my own mind. Steph grasped onto the things that I am passionate about and used them to guide me in understanding and controlling the emotions inside.
I found Steph after some online research looking for a coach to help me get 'unstuck'. Her website and other online presence exuded a warmth and understanding that I found to be genuine in real life. The environment she has created in her office is kind, warm, safe and welcoming and these words describe quite perfectly the human that I found Steph to be.
Those qualities are healing in and of themselves, however Steph is also very knowledgeable and experienced, and works from evidence based frameworks that are proven, in respected research, to be effective.
Over 5 sessions, Steph helped me to unlock my strengths, recognise my helpful and unhelpful thoughts and core beliefs, and provided me with tools that would help me choose kindness over fear. I went from 'not knowing what I want to do when I grow up' (a state of mind I've been stuck in for decades) to the beginning stages of building my own small business with my very first client, all in the space of a few months. Since working with Steph, I no longer suffer anxiety (I still have it occasionally, but no longer suffer it - a huge difference), I've just received a glowing testimonial from that first client, I'm finally finishing my studies and I am peaceful in the knowledge that I am perfectly okay, here and now.
Thank you Steph. I am so very grateful to have found you." AM Adelaide
"Words are not enough to express how much Stephanie has done to help me. I was in a very low place in my life when I first met her and her positive words, encouragement and tools she has given me have helped me think of life in a totally different way. From the very first meeting she made me feel safe and relaxed. For the first time in a very, very long time I am relatively "comfortable" with who I am and the progress of my life. I will be forever grateful!" K.B. Adelaide
"I honestly couldn’t recommend Steph enough. She has helped me to overcome several major issues I was experiencing and has given me the tools to handle any hardships that come my way in the future. I’m definitely aware that life will continue to throw challenges my way but Steph has helped to build my self-confidence to a point where I welcome those challenges. I really am extremely excited about the future and very thankful for the incredibly genuine effort Steph has put in to helping me along the way. Her guidance and expertise has been priceless to me. Thank you Steph." R.E., 24 year old male, Mitchell Park
"Some time ago I felt very depressed due to various circumstances and I could not see the end of it. When I made my first appointment I didn’t know what to expect but I was on a mission to get better and therefore not holding back. The story I shared with Stephanie was my own and told how I hoped for a better future. Stephanie has not let me down; my journey with her has been an emotional rollercoaster: laughter, tears, eye-opening revelations but most importantly the opportunity to manage my life. She assisted me to identify, understand and use my character strengths, gave me tools to answer difficult questions and helped in believing in myself again. Today? I no longer live in fear and I am grateful for that. Thank you Steph for your coaching and enabling me to build a great future!" L.S. Flagstaff Hill
“At first I was skeptical as to how life coaching would help me through a really difficult patch. To be honest I don’t know if I could be in the place I am now, with confidence and self-esteem, if it wasn’t for Steph and her life coaching techniques and strategies. Thanks Steph – you will never know how much this means. If you want a challenge and want to delve deep inside yourself, do life coaching, it’s worth it!” T.W. Adelaide
"I started the year feeling depleted and very unsure of myself. My inner-critic had gotten way out of control. Two coaching sessions with wonderful Steph and I'm back on top of the world again. Accepting what I can't change and acknowledging all of the greatness out there and within me. Thanks Steph for sharing your beautiful gift of insight, humour and nurturing kindness with me!"

"My 15 year old daughter had lost a lot of weight, too much weight actually, and a once bubbly, happy girl was unsocial, sad, depressed and suffering with anxiety and an eating disorder. We didn't know what had hit us and we felt the situation was out of control and tearing our family apart. We didn't know where to turn. I then found beautiful Steph and our daughter connected with her immediately. She felt safe, comfortable and understood. Steph listened to her, empathised with her, but gave her the advice, positive steps and tools she needed to move forward.
Our daughter is no longer in the unhappy dark place she was and is now a very fit, healthy, happy teenager. What can I say, this amazing lady Steph, turned our lives around! She not only gave us our daughter back but helped us discover things about ourselves and supported us through a very difficult time.
Life can be tough, but with Stephanie's unique style, proven skills and vibrant positivity, we can't thank her enough and highly recommend her to help you with your own journey." E.D. West Lakes
School Staff - workshops
Spring Head Lutheran School staff participated in a Team Building Workshop with Stephanie and learnt much about ourselves as well as each other. It was a great team building exercise as we came to see our own strengths clearly. Our respect for each other has really grown through this workshop and we are undoubtedly a stronger and healthier team from this Workshop. – Bruce Williams, Principal Spring Head Lutheran School.
The content was relevant to our journey as workmates AND as teachers. I was engaged with the content on many levels. I really appreciated the practical ideas and strategies to use personally and with my students. It was great to have the background knowledge explained so we knew the WHY and HOW behind the strategies.
Thank you for your passion, knowledge, contentedness and encouragement. We have been blessed through your session.
