Get out of your rut

Heal your hurts

Build your dreams

Feel alive again…

That crazy dream you have?

The ideal life you’ve constructed in your mind?

The wild, expressive, full power version of you that you’d love to be?

All of it is waiting for you.

Here’s how I can help.

I’m inviting you on an adventure.

I’m curious about you – who you are and where you’ve been and where you want to go.

And since we’re adventuring together, maybe you’d like to know some things about who I am and where I’ve been, too.

On my own adventure to live my own life that’s better than ‘fine’, I often learn some interesting and useful things.

Sometimes I stop to write about them, and share them here.

My hope is you find them useful too.

I have experienced many coaching sessions with others on my life’s journey with varying degrees of success.

It can be challenging to find a coach who can hold me with love and safety in a way that I feel comfortable enough to focus on my own transformation.

Ellen has a core of stillness, a beautiful way of being during our coaching sessions that allowed me to fully drop into my body – creating a space for me to unlock some deeply held life experiences. Her gentle probing, her wicked humour and her loving presence combining to keep me focused and safe within our sessions.

Reflecting back on how I have evolved has surprised me – we had such fun in our sessions… yet deep shifts happened.

Placing my hand on my heart, feeling into my body and thinking of the essence of Ellen – I am filled with a sense of love, compassion and strength, and the beautiful stillness that is a sanctuary in a busy world.

What does it mean to feel powerful?

A long time ago in a faraway land (this sounds so much more poetic than ‘in Mexico in 2017’), I lay on a mat on the floor in a room. I was about to breathe myself into an altered state of consciousness to allow my body to move, make sound, let go, heal. As an...
