When I started working with Val, my initial hesitation was that I’d probably be feeling very uncomfortable doing this exploratory work. I quickly found that Val truly does hold a sacred space for me to feel free to unburden my woes and find connection with my inner self. She has helped me to explore and remember inner resources that I possess though haven’t been utilising. I appreciate Val’s honesty and preparedness to be open to whatever emerges.
Through this inner work with Val I have recovered my daily meditation practise and my journaling practise, I have increased my ability to quell my negative self-talk, rediscovered the delightful experience of free dance movement, and have connected grounding & breath work to a new sense of positive purpose. I find now that I am frequently feeling that I AM enough! I’m now becoming more aware, through these practices, of when I’m on auto-pilot and unconscious!
Val is friendly, down to earth, and grounded in her special practice of coaching. It has been a pleasure having this communication with Val. She has been very open, and our engagement has been easy and enjoyable. I deeply appreciate all the help & guidance that I’ve received. I’d recommend Val’s service to anyone who is serious about self-development, making positive change in their lives, or wanting to expand their horizons either personally, spiritually or professionally.
Initially as I came into coaching with Val, I was afraid to open up and fearful/anxious about how I might feel. This fear soon evaporated, on our first meeting I found myself opening up very willingly.
I have realised that it’s important to take care of myself and that I need to fill my cup in life. Val pushed me to take action instead of just thinking and doing nothing. I have also made some very positive steps to make significant changes in my life now and further down the track as I progress. Val has empowered me to work on myself further, take care of myself and she encouraged me to keep going even when the universe throws me a few curve balls.
The best things about working with Val is her positivity, approach, guidance and teaching me about self-love. She is so easy to talk to and has a beautiful calm nature. I love her positive messages of support and that she gave me challenges, tasks and tools to change my mindset and lift my spirits.
Our sessions have been intensely thought provoking and helpful to me in so many ways. Val challenged me to find out what it is I really want from life and I am now feeling inspired to pursue my passion in life. I feel like I am embarking on a journey of change and Val helped me arrive at this stage with support and guidance. I now feel equipped with the tools to get rid of fear and self-doubt when it approaches and how to reflect on my past achievements to change the way I think.
I would definitely recommend Val to anyone who is feeling in a state of limbo with their life/career/relationship or someone seeking clarity on their path in life or those who have lost a sense of who they are.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to have been through coaching with you Val. I can’t thank you enough for helping me on my journey
When we began working with Val, we had our first book written and beta read, and it was time for us to think about putting it online and marketing it. We knew that this was a really important stage and could either make or break all the work we’d done. I was feeling really terrified about going forward from there, because this side of things we had no idea about.
We met Val at a business mastermind and had a sense from the beginning that we would work well together. We were ready for the next level of support, so had no hesitation in hiring her. She helped us break everything down into steps and tasks that we could move forward with. This was really important because we were feeling overwhelmed by all of it, and having Val go through and set up the strategy and get us organised with a series of steps, unblocked me and made it possible for me to understand what we needed to do.
We both really liked the fact that Val was coaching us, it wasn’t a case of us handing the work over to her, but us learning how to do it ourselves. It’s a really good way to go especially for small business. Val is very easy going and easy to work with. We’ve learned new skills we didn’t know we’d learn, and I am not nearly as afraid as I was. Val helped us gain confidence and make everything feel doable.
Working with Val has been interesting, she is knowledgeable and honest and if she doesn’t know something she isn’t afraid to say so, and so there were things we learned together. We didn’t feel that she was ever trying to say she had all the skills and all the knowledge we needed, but she knew where we had to go to get them. This was a coaching exercise and a really good way to go, and we feel this is an important point.
Would we recommend Val? Absolutely, don’t hesitate! This is a model for someone who is committed to doing it for themselves, and it will go really well if they recognise it’s not about Val doing the work for them. We have already spoken with others and recommended her. We both love that the whole thing was set up so that we were doing the work and we were getting to learn how to do it, and when we got stuck we had Val to help us over the hurdles and we came away from those hurdles knowing what we needed to do which I definitely think is the best way to go. We definitely recommend Val, and have done so already.
You will get personal growth out of working with Val, and you might surprise yourself with what you learn about yourself. We are doing things we never saw ourselves doing. Working with Val has been a pleasure.
Val has helped me so much with marketing my business, but at a deeper level Val has helped me gain more long term power, much more than just the ability to actually do my marketing.
I had the theory of what I could and should be doing, but I couldn’t see any way to get there because of my mindset and the deep depression I was struggling with.
I could see doorways of how to get my business running, but they were locked to me at the time. Val is unlocking those doors for me, I still have to do the work, but the locks are dropping off the doors which has helped me become a lot less depressed. This is probably the biggest shift so far from working with Val.
I went to one of Vals workshops, I actually was late, and Val came out to greet me and it was like a force of beautiful energy, she was really welcoming. I even looked behind me in case it wasnt me she was talking to. From that workshop, I could see she knew her stuff.
Originally I thought our work might be like a counsellor client relationship and I was hesitant. Now I’m in a place where I trust that I can speak into whatever I need to with Val. Working with her feels very safe, and when she sees that I’m strong enough she will be quite direct which is powerful for me.
One of the biggest changes for me is seeing I have possibilities in my business that I had so much trouble seeing before, and my depression has lessened in both impact and frequency. I probably was on that path anyway, but I feel that my work with Val has been the biggest thing that has pushed that along.
I trust her and my belief grows with each session, she really knows her stuff. Sometimes the work is challenging, but it’s also exhilarating for me! She tailors what she does to suit me, she meets me where I’m at. If you are considering coaching with Val, I definitely recommend you go for it. Val is really really good at what she does, worth every cent.
I hired Val as my coach because I was in a place where I was struggling away at building my business daily, piece by piece, but not really making much progress. I was searching and looking at different mentoring options but I never found anything I could see that would give me the direction and structure that I actually wanted and needed.
I had an extremely useful breakthrough session with Val, but I was hesitant to hire her because I was struggling with valuing the investment in myself and the business. She has helped me greatly with developing a strong and healthy mindset, to believing in my business and believing in my future.
I find working with Val to be inspiring and educational, even at my age there is plenty to learn. She has an amazing knowledge base and provides a lot of good tools and practices that keep me on track. Val has also helped me with encouragement, support, and internal motivation that was almost missing from the entrepreneurial part of me.
Val has helped me get my business structured efficiently and presented a lot more professionally, and to develop a marketing strategy that’s working. She has the ability to spot the conditioning from decades of life, and has helped me to shift my thinking to thought patterns that actually support me and my business. I am now much more focused on the future, and I’m getting the results I want in my business.
You’d be daft not to take the opportunity to work with Val. She has a lot to offer with both her knowledge and life wisdom. I have no hesitation in recommending Val to anyone looking to upgrade their results in life or in business.
Before we hired Val, we were at a place where we were recreating our business and we needed something new. We knew we wanted a website up and running but the rest wasn’t so clear. Our web developer recommended we meet with Val first, he advised us that we would really benefit from having her mentor us and guide us.
We had no hesitations beginning work with Val, we had met previously and felt quite happy from that meeting to see what she had to offer. It was all an adventure really!
And now after working with Val, we have a lot more focus, and a lot more clarity with our goals. Vals enthusiasm and support helped us go ‘big picture,’ making it all more possible.
Val has an easy going attitude and worked with our flow and with our energy, which we are really grateful for because it allowed us the space to gather ourselves and get a bit of momentum. We were supported to go at our pace, and she flowed with us. She was supportive of our slightly less than proficient tech skills and helped us to not be worried about making mistakes. We are now more capable of helping ourselves and it’s been a good mentorship if only from that perspective. Val inspired confidence in us to not be shy about going for big goals.
We really liked the step by step processes, she mapped it out and made it workable. We realised early in the journey that we had a lack of focus and clarity, which was really quite valuable from a personal development point of view. The work wasn’t easy but the mapped out process Val created for us was very beneficial. We had to concentrate on who we are and where we are going, and this was broken into manageable bits was really helpful. It was a paradigm shift as we realised this was all about us and Val was coaching us not judging or marking our progress.
As life happened, we all flowed and it was perfect. The weekly meetings were good, they were a bit of a deadline that we were the ones setting and it kept us moving.
We felt Val understood us and appreciated what we we’re doing and was very supportive of our journey. We have no hesitations in recommending Val. If you’re’ willing to put in the effort, you will get great reward. Resistance does come up along the way, but having a schedule made us stay on task. What you put in will be what you get back. If you’re willing to do the work, you will get results with Val, which we feel we have.
