Find your Balance

Coaching with Claudia

Life is precious and it’s a balancing act. Coaching is a powerful resource for finding and staying in our balance, and when we lose it, getting back on track. Unlike counselling where we might seek to uncover ‘what’s wrong and why’, in coaching we focus on what’s working and build from there. Looking after ourselves is so important, and yet while many of us wouldn’t miss a dental or medical check up, attending to our inner selves often doesn’t happen until we are heading for a crisis.

However, coaching is not only about avoiding crises; it’s also about connecting to your deeper being and steering your ship toward the life that you want for yourself. Drawing on tools from Mindfulness, Positive Psychology, Acceptance Commitment Coaching (ACT) and Deep Listening, we explore what that might mean for you in a confidential and non-judgmental space. Together we find pathways towards your goals and deal with any challenges along the way.

Coaching is interactive, where both you and I are focused on your development in a warm and confidential setting.
  • explore your unique gifts and values
  • manage anxiety and negative thoughts
  • find your balance and flow
  • uncover your creative strengths
  • learn about mindfulness
  • reset your goals and vision
  • techniques to address fatigue
  • connect with your inner wisdom
Rewards come with practice and so in each coaching session we agree on a couple of action steps for you to try between sessions. You don’t have to nail it in the first go, but the willingness to try is important.
My formal background is a Masters of Science in Coaching Psychology (University of Sydney) and over twenty years’ counselling experience. I am also a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I know the importance of balancing high performance with adequate recovery and have explored the science of recovery and burnout prevention in order to be able to sustain one’s passions and callings. I have trained in Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Enneagram coaching. I have a creative background and have performed internationally and in Australia as a musician and love working with people to foster their creativity. I have regular coaching sessions so that I can keep ‘steering my ship’ towards the life of my dreams.

      I really enjoyed working with Claudia as a positive coach. Her skills, warmth and compassion helped me develop self-confidence and resilience and move towards achieving positive goals.  With Claudia's assistance, I was able to confidently put my best self forward in job applications and interviews, and develop skills to answer difficult questions regarding difficult life circumstances, such as having an injury.  I am very grateful to Claudia for helping me achieve success.
    • Sue Gee
      Having recently retired, downsized and had a relationship break-up I was in dire need of Claudia's sensitive and practical coaching and counselling services. I continued to see her regularly for about a year and a half. With practical exercises, "homework" and guided meditation techniques I was able to apply the strategies Claudia taught me in our sessions. Claudia helped me recover and find direction for my life post-pandemic.
