Courage coaching

Welcome to Courage Unfolding

Do you ever feel your greatness is constrained, desperately trying to break free?

Do you suffer from self-criticism, and a nagging disbelief that you truly deserve what you desire?

As career women, the pressure to meet expectations can be overwhelming.

Many women hold back from speaking up, asking for help, declining projects or making bold decisions.

Many women miss out on the balance, joy, raises, promotions and acknowledgment they deserve, year after year.

I know this all too well...

In my journey, I realised I had to break free or I would never feel satisfied with the path my life was taking.

I took a leap into the unknown and discovered a pathway to gain liberation from self-sabotage, embrace imperfection, and find the courage I needed to thrive authentically on my own terms.

I cultivated the courage to shape my career on my terms.

I now empower women like you to break free from the chains of self-doubt, reclaim your voice, and step boldly into your own authority.

I'm here to help you thrive more and feel better.

Your courage is like a muscle. Use it, or you may lose it.

Unlock you true potential, speak up and be seen.
