Life Transition | Holistic Life and Career Coach| Life Skills Mentor – for all ages
Sandy is a sought after, qualified, experienced, and passionate coach delivering tailored coaching programs for individuals, teams and businesses. After discovering this incredible industry in 2001, Sandy has gone from a coaching client – to coach trainee – to sole trader – to running this highly successful coaching agency. She now has an amazing team of over 20 coaches, and has become the “go to” of the coaching industry.
With 19 years of 1:1 coaching experience Sandy can help her clients with all aspects of personal development, holistic career development, making successful life transitions, business leadership and relationship enhancement. She works individuals who have come from a wide variety of circumstances, challenges and backgrounds, and of all ages. She also supports various charities and works with NDIS participants where applicable.
Sandy’s unique coaching approach and her passion to deliver exceptional results have helped hundreds of people gain breakthroughs in their personal and professional lives. Sandy’s personal philosophy is that everything comes back to having a healthy, positive attitude, being grounded, how well we connect with others, what choices we make and how well we learn along the way. Sandy has valuable expertise and gained immeasurable insights about personal development by firstly focusing on her own personal mastery and learning about all aspects of human behaviour from global leaders and trainers.
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 was getting nowhere fast! It was a highly stressful time, right when she needed to step up and be her best, and quickly!!
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, 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 own vision looked like > to become a professional coach to others who have found themselves stuck in a rut in their personal or professional lives. Sandy has firsthand experience in mastering work/life balance. Running the household, being a single parent (of two amazing daughters) and studying course after course was all apart of the challenge and yet she thrived. Staying focused on being a good role model for her kids, maintaining a healthy attitude and sense of well-being, and having an inspiring vision firmly in her sights was the key. She has very proudly built this coaching company, Life Coaching Melbourne from scratch. Her compassion, client-empowerment focused approach to her coaching and maintaining a willingness to continually learn, grow and contribute, has kept her being her best so that she can best help you to be your best too.
