I have always been someone people have sought out for help . After realizing there must be something to this, I have decided to change my path and become a healer . Now as a Certified Whole Person Coach I have a skill set allowing me to help people with more efficiency and leaving them with a clear vision to solve almost anything . I have a natural ability to work on serious issues with a light heart allowing a focus on a solution rather than dwelling on the cause .
Ten years ago,
I was a lawyer with my own practice. I had everything going for me: professional goals accomplished, happily married to the man I love, leading a balanced life with healthy food, sports, vacations, you name it.
My Cartesian mind was telling me that everything was under control, that I had ticked all the boxes and that it would be foolish to change a thing.
Then, life hit me.
At age 38, my body was attacked aggressively by an autoimmune disease. The symptoms were so severe that I could not go to work. Even worse, I could not do even the simplest tasks due to fatigue – making a cup of tea could take all my morning energy from me. I was incapacitated… Treatment was not working the way it should, and I almost lost hope that my body would ever restore to health. I was at my wits end. I was desperate…
All I could do, confined in my house, was think:
“Why did I have all these health problems? Why did I worry about everything that might (or might not) happen to a point that my body crushed? Why had I not realised that I had always been stressed, tired, and anxious? If everything was under control, why did I feel lost and overwhelmed by my emotions?”
“Why me? All I ever wanted was to reap the fruit of my hard work and be able to enjoy my happiness and my success. All I ever wanted was inner peace. After all, I had accomplished every goal I had set for myself. I had done everything I was expected to do.”
Tired morally and physically, I heard a quiet, calm but assertive voice that said:
I was surprised by the certainty of that voice, but I was willing to try anything that would bring back my well-being. What I did not realise right away was that this voice had a wisdom of its own. It led me on a healing journey that started from something that I was relatively familiar with – yoga.
Attending local yoga classes relieved me of my stress and helped my body’s renewal. My yoga teacher and I soon became friends, and she recommended I try reflexology. One thing led to another and my reflexologist introduced me to a reputable energy healer.
I could understand the benefits (and the “science”) of yoga and reflexology, but I remained skeptical when it came to alternative healing methods. Nevertheless, out of curiosity and trust, I decided to meet with this energy healer. To my surprise and delight, her therapeutic channeling worked for me.
My healing begins.
During the session, I was deeply moved by the healer’s wisdom and capability to see above and beyond the surface. She reminded me of my innate sensitivity and said: “Stop running away from who you are, and you will get better. Follow the wisdom of your inner self, and you will forever remain healthy.”
After the session, I rediscovered my sensitivity, which I had had since my early childhood, and I could “see, hear and feel” again. At the beginning, it was overwhelming. It was as if I had been struck by lightning. The experience brought me back in touch with my inner wisdom and enhanced my capability to hear my inner voice. Thankfully, the energy healer taught me techniques to manage my energy sensitivity and trained me in putting it to good use, that is, she taught me how to do therapeutic channeling.
This “epiphany” that helped me rediscover my true gift and inner compass has led me to a series of changes thereafter. I practice being in tune with my inner voice at all times and I know that my inner wisdom is aligning me with the will of the universe. I started “bumping into” the right people, experiences and opportunities. One could say that all this was nothing more than “coincidence” but, in fact, it was synchronicity… That’s only part of the magic that happens when we ignore “distractions” and we start to turn within. Following my curiosity and inner voice, I discovered and trained in Reiki, Hypnotherapy, the Enneagram and Whole Person Coaching. I also taught myself to use divining rods so as to do energy evaluations of people and places, which helps me to better understand my clients’ energy needs before healing and balancing them.
A blessing in disguise.
It was only when I hit rock bottom, that I came to realise that there had always been two voices guiding me. One was the voice of my logic, the loud and demanding one that led me to the ultimate deterioration of my well-being. And the other one, that of my inner wisdom – a soft, quiet but powerful voice that always proves to be right; the one that has my best interest in mind;the one that is forever aligned with my life’s mission. A voice that has always been there, but that was ignored and sacrificed at the altar of social convention and family expectations. A voice that makes me feel whole when I listen to it. The voice of love, wisdom and inner peace.
I learnt that for me to hear that voice I had to quieten all the mind chattering, to make time for silence and just listen. Since I had never taken the time to stop and listen to my body and get in touch with my emotions, my body fell ill and forced me to sit tight and listen to its wisdom.
Reborn with a mission.
Since then, I have been healthy and medicine free, I have more love to give myself and others, and the relationships in my life have become better than ever. After years of training and experimenting with my gifts, I have created my own method of well-being, i-Ki Coaching, and I’m blessed to work with people from all over the world. I write books, and I travel the world for talks, workshops, trainings, presentations and sessions.
My mission is to help you to discover, trust and listen to your own inner, innate wisdom and be guided from within. With this skill, you will learn to become more accepting, compassionate and loving towards yourself and others, you will form and sustain healthy, fulfilling and happy relationships; and ultimately, you will find and use your true gifts to fulfil your life’s mission with clarity and equanimity.
There is room for YOU in your life. You deserve to be seen and heard.
I am an ACC and Whole Person Certified Life Coach. And I am a recovering people-pleasing perfectionist. My passion is helping women in mid-life who have lost themselves in the service of others to find and honor their voice, so they can reclaim their personal authority and lead a confident, empowered, and compassionate life.
As a recovering People-Pleasing Perfectionist I was lost to myself for a long time. I usually worked my needs and wants around other people’s. My family was always put first. Then friends. My needs were sometimes fourth or fifth.
I bought into the story that an ideal woman, and ideal mother, is helpful and kind. She is a good person if she sacrifices her own wants and needs for others. She never puts herself first. This story made me feel guilty when I did things for myself.
When I hit my mid 40’s, I came into the proverbial mid-life crisis. I looked around me thinking, “how did I end up here?” and, “what does my future hold?” and most importantly, “who am I and what do I want?”
There was a voice in me longing to speak up. A voice that deserved to be heard. I compared myself to stories of women who made radical, drastic changes to their lives. I heard about these women and believed that to speak my truth I’d have to completely change and live a radically different life. I thought there was only one way to be fierce. That scared me.
I longed to start living my life for myself, to have my sense of worth come from within, and take care of my own needs. But I was trapped in either/or thinking. I felt like my choices were: either take care of everyone else’s needs or take care of my needs. I didn’t know that you can do both.
Like so many people-pleasers, I was constantly seeking external validation. I was basing my individual value on what others thought of me. I had built my life around an inner narrative that said: “my real worth in the real world comes from supporting and serving others”. I let other people’s stories determine who I was, how I should act, and what makes me a good person. But my true self bucked against the stories.
Things changed when I learned how to rewrite my story. I decide who I am, how I should act, and where my value comes from.
Using techniques of narrative coaching, I’m honoring my voice and learning that I no longer need to hide or suppress my needs and wants. I still enjoy supporting my loved ones, but I now include myself in that circle of people I love.
That’s what I want for you too, and that’s what we’ll do together. You’ll learn how to rewrite your stories & inner narrative, so that you will shift your perspective, find your voice, reclaim your personal authority, and find joy & appreciation in your current life.
Change is possible, no matter how long you have been feeling lost in your disempowering stories and patterns, or how terrible it currently feels. You can be seen and heard without giving up on the life you’ve created.
Your voice is uniquely yours; you don’t have to sound or act like anyone else. That’s the beauty of it. Standing in your power doesn’t have to require a radical, aggressive change. It can, but it doesn’t have to. What it does require is radical honesty.
In my coaching program, Cultivate Your Voice, my mission is to help you find and honor your true self by honestly assessing limiting stories and shifting your perspective, so you can reclaim your personal authority and lead an empowered, confident and compassionate life. You can support others and support yourself.

I’m a divorce and transition coach. I help midlife professionals create their authentic life through planning and execution. In addition to years of related training and experience (as a lawyer, negotiator, mediator, HR manager and consultant), I completed my amicable divorce in 2017. I never thought I’d get divorced, but it was the right decision for me. In 2015, I began my self-help journey, reading every self-help book available and listening to hundreds of hours of podcasts. I became interested in coaching by studying the work of Tony Robbins, Jennifer Bailey, Wayne Dyer, Brene Brown, Abraham Hicks, and Gary Zukav, to name a few. I completed course work on the Science of Happiness (under EdX). In 2017, after my divorce, my life has improved dramatically, I created a divorce Meetups group, to help those at various stages support each other and learn about the process. I found that people are afraid of divorce and ill informed. My divorce was amicable and I didn’t want others to experience the confusion, self-doubt, and judgment that plagued me. Although, I have the experience and training to help people confront major life decisions such as relocation, divorce, separation, career change, co-parenting, life dissatisfaction, and illness, I also have the personal experience of taking action in major areas of my life and overcoming adversity. If you’re struggling with your relationship, career, or other situation, and are considering whether to move on; or if you’re just plain stuck, I can help you identify the issues, organize them, and develop an action plan to move you forward, and live your most authentic life. Your fulfillment has no price tag. Investing in yourself is critical to your well-being, and essential to your growth. My process entails forging a strong, safe, and trusting relationship with my client, reflecting and observing, using proven coaching techniques, asking the right questions, and holding my client accountable for his or her commitments. If you’re ready to own your situation and improve it, and you’re least thinking about what to do, please schedule a complimentary “get acquainted” session, at no cost. I’m looking forward to hearing from and learning about you!

Can blind kids learn to run a mile on an outside track? Sure, I’ve taught them how. But more so, they taught me that if you’ve got passion and potential then nothing can stop you!
Was their lack of eyesight a limiting obstacle or a reality to transcend? They knew in their gut what they wanted to do, they just needed someone to help them do it.
I’ve had a variety of jobs, as a teacher of the blind, administrator, pastor, Nia fitness instructor and whole person coach, with one thing in common: Helping others do what their heart longs to do!
