Accredited Life CoachBCom (Melb) DipEd Dip BST (PSH)
Jill has worked in a variety of businesses and modalities – education, retail, marketing, service and mind/body health – has been in business herself and has worked in both small business and large organisations. She understands the isolation and frustration that people can feel despite living seemingly full and busy lives and running seemingly successful businesses. Jill knows now that PERSONAL and BUSINESS Coaching can offer a powerful yet impartial and objective support to enable clarification and a rapid moving forward from a place often described as “stuck or “spinning the wheels. Due to her vast range of experiences in life Jill can relate very well to people of all ages and from all walks of life and works with them to move on from emotional attachments and belief systems which limit thinking and create behavioural responses which often result in seemingly unchangeable, repetitive life patterns. She works in an holistic way and whilst being willing to challenge clients beliefs, she is a fantastic sounding board and incorporates humour and sensitivity to her coaching. Jill particularly relishes celebrating clients’ achievements and movement forward to a place where they are strong and can trust and rely on their own innate wisdom and are able to fly solo!!
“My interest is enabling you to live your life ‘on purpose’ – find out who you really are, what is important to you, what your real passion is, what your values are, how you can live a life congruent with who you really are – because when one does this – everything lines up and it’s fun, the energy is there, support systems appear, procrastination is reduced (if not eliminated) and there is a touchstone in place that simplifies decision making. Also, self responsibility and a knowing that you are always doing the best you can is assumed which brings freedom, fulfillment and inner peace.
“I see my role as holding the torch for clients (pass them some tools if needed); shining it into areas and pathways they have not yet noticed, or wanted to explore alone; allowing them to be free to do the work and decide where they really want to go. The joy is when clients get to see there are unlimited possibilities and then, when ready, they take hold of the torch (or in fact, don’t need it any more as their own light is shining clearly) and the way forward is clear and beckoning and they step out confidently.
“My Mission Statement for my business incorporates the following poem from Marianne Williamson’s “Return to Love” and used by Nelson Mandela in his inauguration speech:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are all powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves
– who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some of us:
it is in everyone.
And as we let our light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear
– our presence automatically liberates others.
“Life Coaching invites people to spread their wings, discover their innate strength, live their life in line with their true purpose, actively create their future – and experience real freedom and a “no limits” life.
“I invite you to allow me to assist you to discover your light and to shine!!!
