Sandy is a sought after, qualified, experienced, and passionate Life Coach of 17 years, with clients from all over the world. Specialising in all aspects of life coaching, including personal development, holistic career development, life transitions, executive/business leadership and relationship enhancement. Sandy’s coaching approach, commitment, and passion has helped thousands of people gain breakthroughs in their personal and professional lives. Sandy’s personal philosophy is that everything comes back to a healthy, positive attitude, how well we connect with others, what choices we make and how well we learn. Sandy has gained valuable expertise and insight about personal development by focusing on her own personal evolution and learning about all aspects of human behaviour.
For a period of time, Sandy was a single mother of two, newly divorced and struggling to make a new life for her family AND a new career/business pathway for herself. She getting nowhere fast! It was a highly stressful time, right when she needed to step up and be her best. Ahhh!
She realised her values had changed and she needed to find time to rediscover herself – somehow. She had so many unanswered questions and didn’t know what to do or how to go about it. She knew she didn’t need counselling. She was eager to brainstorm ideas and issues, find solutions and gain the tools and strategies to grow and move forward. After discovering the amazing effects of life coaching for herself, she soon realised what her passion and vision looked like – to become a professional coach to others who found themselves stuck, after a relationship breakdown or in their professional life. Sandy has firsthand experience in mastering work/life balance whilst pursuing a new career and studying hard. Maintaining effective communication with all those she cares about was important. Staying focused on being a good role model for her kids with a healthy attitude and a vision was the key. Being compassionate and maintaining a willingness to continually learn, grow and contribute, has kept her being her best (80/20) so that she can best help you too.
If you are only ‘managing’ life, tired of the ‘same old’, a parent in need of external support, if you are becoming curious about what else is possible for you, Sandy can help you find the best way forward for you. She will help you to take the steps necessary to put the right people and opportunities on your ‘radar’ and go after your new goals with passion and renewed motivation.
