"Naomi’s coaching was heartfelt, rewarding and empowering. Our sessions helped me at the beginning stages of my business to open my heart, discover my inner self and find my voice. I felt relaxed and completely at ease in our sessions. I learned how to really trust and believe in myself and to not worry about what others will think.

Since I began coaching with Naomi, I experienced big growth in my spirituality and in living my truth. My friends constantly remarked that I am now ‘living my passion’ and that I am much more relaxed. I am over the moon with how far I’ve come and will be forever grateful for my experience with Naomi. I would highly recommend Naomi’s coaching for anyone who wants to step into a new career or project but is feeling scared. Naomi would support you to make this happen!"

"Coaching with Naomi was fun, insightful and filled with personal growth. Before I started coaching with Naomi, I was bumbling along, restless and ignoring my goals because I didn’t know how to organise myself to start them. I wasn’t sure how to bring them to life. I had never worked with a coach before and didn’t really know what to expect, but by the end of the first session I was so excited – having someone to be accountable to was so motivating!

Naomi helped me grow my creative idea from a seed into an oak tree. I now have so much energy because I’m excited about my ongoing business journey.

I feel very grateful for Naomi’s time, energy, honesty and humour. She has kickstarted my amazing journey!"

"Being coached by Naomi was motivating, fun and deliciously indulgent! Prior to coaching with Naomi, I felt like every day was a constant ‘Groundhog Day’ experience. I wanted to feel calm and satisfied in my accomplishments.

Before our first session, I was a little nervous – but by the end of the initial consult I felt excited about what I could achieve, and optimistic about my potential to solve some personal issues that had been recurring for some time.

Coaching with Naomi has increased my confidence and capacity to achieve what I want to do, and has helped me to lessen the guilt experienced when I could not do it all as a busy Mum. I also learned to value and prioritise my self-care. Coaching has inspired me to continue being a Fun Mum and be creative in my daily life.

I loved our sessions and will always be the leader of Naomi’s fan club!"

"Prior to commencing coaching with Naomi, I had just resigned from a permanent teaching position to pursue my dream of self-employed creative work. I chose to work with Naomi as I needed guidance through the moments of self-doubt that arise from making a big change and to focus on the action needed to make my dream real. 

Since starting coaching with Naomi, my husband and children noticed a shift in my focus from striving to live and work creatively, to just ‘being’ more creative in my everyday life. My kids enjoy the mum who makes time to play. The biggest change I’ve witnessed in myself is my new ability to slow down and to identify the creativity in the everyday things that I do.

I’ve learned I don’t always have to be making things or have to end up with a product to be creative. This shift in mindset has enabled me to move forward with my new business venture. I always looked forward to my sessions with Naomi which were valuable, timely and reassuring. I always felt validated and encouraged every step of the journey. I feel like I now have practical tools to move through creative blocks.

Naomi is warm, generous of spirit and a wonderful, creative thinker. I would definitely recommend Naomi as your coach."

"Before I started coaching with Naomi, I was really stressed and unhappy at work and was anxious about returning to postgraduate study: Was I “smart enough?” Could I cope with extra responsibilities on top of my already busy schedule? I also really wanted to enjoy motherhood more, to relax and have fun. 

Starting the coaching series, I felt a little nervous having never worked with a coach before. The goal setting process at the start was amazing as Naomi gave so much energy to exploring my hopes and dreams. This made my goals very valuable, personal and meaningful to me. 

Since beginning coaching with Naomi, my kids have noticed me being more fun as a Mum, they have liked the space I have created to make more fun in our lives and they love our game nights and creative sessions. Coaching with Naomi has been fun, inspiring and insightful.

It has supported my growth as a mother, worker and student. As a student I feel proud, that I have challenged myself, and stood up to the inner critic who dared me to give up. I’ve learned that my kids witnessing me learning is a wonderful lesson for them also. At work, I’m a new person: happy, committed and invigorated and being part of my own positive change movement. As a mum, I’ve learned to be easier on myself. Now I catch myself being a fun mum in the most ordinary situations and enjoying the small moments.

I loved my coaching experience with Naomi, I will treasure it."

"If I had to describe my coaching experience in three words, I’d say motivating, productive and loving.

Before I started coaching with Naomi, I felt a bit flat and anxious, and unsure of how to find the right work/life balance for me and my family.  I wanted to become a better role model for my children and enjoy my time with them more. I felt like I was wasting my days and needed to explore the next chapter in my life.

The lovely Naomi came into my life at the perfect time. After our first session I knew the series was going to be awesome for me and I was so excited to work toward my goals. Our sessions were fun and filled with valuable tools and tips.

Since coaching with Naomi, my husband has noticed that I am more confident and positive. Our marriage is more loving and we are working better as a team.

The biggest changes I have seen in myself are that I am achieving more, feeling better about myself and I am no longer waiting for life to be ‘perfect’ before I let myself be happy and have fun! I really have gotten so much out of my life coaching series – such a positive, helpful and rewarding way to plan for my future.

I wish I could have an appointment every fortnight with Naomi for the rest of my life!"

Reflective. Self-Caring. Rejuvenating.

When we first started coaching, I was preparing to transition back to work after maternity leave. I was filled with dread about returning to my job and a feeling that there was no way I would cope with this role, let alone balance it alongside my new highly valued role, being a mum. 

Going into our first session I felt pretty nervous as I didn’t know what to expect and felt overwhelmed by the changes and decisions ahead of me. But then my excitement grew – our first session was a fantastic experience – I was amazed how Naomi assisted me to define goals that really captured what I wanted to achieve. My goals were inspiring and were a cornerstone for the rest of our work and even beyond – they are like mantras to me now that inspire me every day.

The biggest achievement I’ve experienced from coaching is feeling satisfied in my ability to be a good mother, partner and mental health clinician/occupational therapist. I am mindful of my values to have fun, be fun and as much as possible be light hearted.  My friends have commented on how fully I am living my life – keeping up with self-care, the gym and a great social life – especially because they acknowledge how hard it is working 4 days a week with a one year old child!

Coaching with Naomi helped me deepen my awareness of how I think and feel, and to understand how this impacts on my choices, coping and outcomes in life. Naomi helped me to shift my attitude about setting boundaries and being firm about separating work time from personal time. I learned to develop and implement invaluable practical strategies to assist me to enjoy work and life more. I have renewed enjoyment, confidence and passion in the work that I do.

Coaching was fantastic - A massive thank you Naomi!

Affirming, empowering, grounding.

When I first connected with Naomi, life for me was exhausting. I felt really depleted, drained and a bit lost in the middle of my journey. I was desperate and hopeful for change, and having never had worked with a coach before, was a bit skeptical at the beginning – not really believing that the change could really occur.  

During the first session, the goal setting was genuine - it wasn't just a token 'let's pick a goal or two' - it was a process of unpacking some layers, digging deep and sorting through so much internally to work out the crux of really what I had come to coaching for.  Through this process I was able to really get in touch with what I wanted to get out of coaching and a vision for where I wanted to be.  This was beautifully and skilfully guided by Naomi which laid the foundation for the success that I had to follow. 

Coaching with Naomi allowed me once again to learn how to trust myself, to be confident within myself, to stop second guessing and to know how to know and do what is right for me - how to know my truth.  Knowing my truth has brought me balance, strength and grounding that gives me an incredible empowerment. I am making mindful choices and have the ability to be more focused and present.

Thank you Naomi for being the exact coach that I needed.  In a world and time where there is so much pressure, so much expectation, so many external messages of what and who we should be as people, professionals and mums, coaching gave me the time and space to zone all of that out and to focus on finding me and my truth, what's important to me, what I value, who I want to be and where I want to go. Knowing how to tap into that truth gives me the foundation, strength and courage to wade through all those pressures, expectations etc. with greater ability and to know what is right for me!

The process and journey of coaching took me to some really deep, insightful and personal places as I unpacked so much - but what I loved was the difference from counselling, in that it wasn't focused on the unpacking - it gave me freedom and focus to simply identify things, acknowledge them and then move forward - which was incredibly powerful. 

It had been such a long time since I had been able to feel so anchored - which has brought such freedom and empowerment back to me...the benefits of these things are endless.  My family and friends have noticed a more balanced, grounded and relaxed me – I am much more present

Naomi is truly skilled, gifted and created for this life giving work and I am so thankful I found her to be my coach. The fit for me was perfect and I thank you and thank you! I will be back one day!
