I am a transpersonal life coach based in Melbourne, Australia. I coach people who want improvement or transformation in one or more areas of their lives, who need support because of a specific difficulty (such as anxiety, stress, burnout, a work or relationship issue, self-sabotage…) or who feel stuck and would like to find a renewed sense of purpose and joy.
I have a genuine interest in people and a sensitive, caring and compassionate approach. I focus on providing my clients with a safe place to discover and understand the parts of their personal stories that are limiting them. We can then shift those limitations and change the parts of their lives affected by them. I coach online, via video call (Skype or Zoom).
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them"
The term transpersonal in "transpersonal coaching" describes a form of life coaching which goes beyond the "personal". It is holistic, taking into account the whole person: body and mind, as well as consciousness. It acknowledges and values the entirety of our experience: our emotions, our connection to ourselves, to others and to the spiritual.
In a typical transpersonal coaching session, we work from that expanded perspective to discover answers to our questions and solutions to our problems. Transpersonal coaching is very useful to gain a better understanding of ourselves, the reasons behind the obstacles we face and how to successfully meet and rise above our challenges.
"The way you look at things is the most powerful force in shaping your life"
I have studied transpersonal coaching psychology and I am a member of the International Association of Coaches, Therapists and Mentors (IACTM) and of the Transpersonal Coaching and Therapy Network (TCTN). I have a background in languages and educational psychology which has led me to understand how we form limiting beliefs about ourselves and our environment. Guiding my clients to experience an expanded sense of self, and therefore to see beyond those beliefs, is at the core of my coaching work, which aims to support them on their journey to achieve their highest potential.
"Rachel has a wonderful and peaceful energy! She is caring, warm and a sincere person who puts her heart and soul into each session allowing my emotions and things to naturally manifest in a safe space. Under her guidance, I feel at ease and safe, which enable me to connect and receive the answers and tools I need. With her, I feel that my inner transformation occurs slowly, silently, and soothingly.”
"My sessions with Rachel have been all amazing and an invaluable help. With her exceptional skills and intuition, she helped me with a series of issues that had needed addressing for a long time, and were affecting my confidence, quality of life and academic performance. Through various creative approaches, all equally stimulating and effective, she helped me gain self-confidence again and gave me a set of new tools to work with. Indeed, lots of aha moments! Rachel is incredibly attentive and professional; the sessions were adapted to my needs each time and she created a beautiful, safe space for me to relax and let go, so that I could explore the topics, with her careful guidance. I am truly grateful, as working with her has made a remarkable difference.
Thank you, Rachel!”
"Rachel led me to Open Awareness in a wonderful and peaceful way. Under her guidance I felt at ease and safe, which enabled me to connect and receive the answers I needed. Thank you.”
"Seeing Rachel for coaching was a wonderful experience that facilitated change in the way I view challenges in my life. Rachel provided effective tools to continue moving forward and shift outmoded ways of thinking and seeing things. I was able to embrace my own passion to continue my journey. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone wishing to enhance their business opportunities or their personal development."
"The transpersonal coaching sessions I had with Rachel were transformative experiences. They have led me to significant insights regarding my limiting behaviours. How adverse childhood experiences might imprint pain in our bodies, which can lead us to limit our full potential as free beings. Most impressive is her genuine and caring manner to support us on this inner journey.”
"We all need someone to talk to, someone who is caring, attentive and non-judgmental. I found it all with you, Rachel. Your help, your advice, your kindness and your support are really appreciated and beneficial… I’m better thanks to your methods for working on my overwhelming emotions. Many thanks for everything, I will never forget it.”
"Rachel is more than a coach! She is a safe haven where you are free to be yourself. She creates an atmosphere where you feel safe to open up your innermost fears and tears. A fountain of wealth who guides you to your inner world to find the healing that lies deep within you. She shows you the road map to the buried treasures which you did not even know exist within you. She will revive and trigger back to life those childhood dreams which you thought were dead and buried forever. The proof of the pudding is in the eating. A first encounter with Rachel has to be experienced to know her immense worth and limitlessly rich inner world.”
"You cannot see the way out of a challenge if you are looking at it every day from the same level of mind, emotions, thoughts and feelings of the past"
