I am not a young person anymore, I must say, as I retired from a very busy and successful working life. Nevertheless, I liked to think I was in a quite good physical and mental condition, specially compared with some friends of mine, all about my age. But I was not satisfied in the comfort of that comparison and not resigned with certain subtle feelings about myself that became stronger every day. So I shared those thoughts with Paula and she designed for me a truly personal and holistic program, after a deep knowledge of my daily behaviours, including regular activities I have nowadays, what I usually eat, how and when, but also taking into consideration my preferences, what I like to do and eat, what I reject and why. This “tailored made” program matches with my profound belief that there is not a recipe for everyone to improve or change habits, behaviours or solve personal discomfort of any kind. We are not all the same. And that is the reason I follow Paula´s coaching with less effort and saw very quick results. Those results are materialised every day (lost weight, regained energy and mental clarity, incorporated healthy changes) and I am encouraged to follow her coaching, as now I know there is no age or personal situation that prevent us to be more satisfied with ourselves.

During the transition into my new position as a Senior Executive for the Department of the Interior, I was fortunate to have established a connection with Lynn. Lynn quickly made me feel at ease, even though our meetings were all virtual. Lynn was always a supportive and reassuring presence to provide me feedback on managing difficult employees, what to expect from my new role as a Senior Executive, how to improve morale within my program area, and to provide goals for not only myself but how to effectively communicate new ideas and encourage critical thinking within my staff area and Senior Executive associates. I will attest, I endured some very difficult times during my time as Director, and Lynn always was there to provide a listening ear, and offer various ways of support to navigate through those tenuous times. Having retired from 30 years of federal service, Lynn was also there to assist me with that transition. And what a transition it is! I would highly recommend Lynn to anyone who is considering a professional career coach, regardless of whether you are just starting a career, or at the highest levels of management. Having Lynn in your corner will help build the confidence needed to take on great challenges!

I had the pleasure and benefit of working with Catherine and UpShift Coaching as part of my personal plan to get the much needed coaching as I embarked on a journey of leaving corporate life behind. I worked with Catherine for 4 months prior to my final day in corporate life. Needless to say I was nervous about leaving the world of deadlines, deliverables, daily pressures and the need to achieve every day behind, after all that is all I have ever known and like most of us in corporate life it does consume you and become you. Catherine is a tremendous coach. She helped me see my new world and the possibilities of shifting from a world dominated by achievements to a new world enriched in fulfilling opportunities that synch up with my personal values. She has a unique ability to ask those provocative questions that quite simply stopped me dead in my tracks causing me to reflect about what is important to me and how these deeply rooted values could shape this new world of mine. She has given me a tremendous kick-start into this new phase of life and with her help I face it not with fear, trepidation or ambiguity but with a sense of direction, wonder and a ‘world of possibilities’ mindset. Catherine – awesome job couldn’t have gotten this far on the road to change without your careful guidance, insights and those “questions”. Thanks and will be in touch.
"Ramon is a rock star. He quickly threw me a curve ball that was spot on. He clearly understood and articulated the issues and the best approach. One of the best coaching sessions I have ever had."

When I first contacted Steve Wrigley, I was struggling in a number of areas of my life. My biggest challenge was that I had just lost a big client, which for years had been my primary source of income. Additionally, I was also struggling with serious career burnout, family relationship challenges, anxiety, and some depression. I was also facing the stark reality that I would have to end my ten years of running my own company and return to full-time work, working for someone else. And I didn’t have the tools to cope and recover. I was drowning. I decided to get some professional career coaching since that aspect of my life was at the root of my struggles. I called Steve and found him personable, a good listener, knowledgeable, and eager to help, so I decided to proceed. Long story short, he was amazing. We met weekly over a period of a few months and he was an incredible resource to get my life back on track. His breadth of experience was actually an asset, not a liability. For example, it was a principle in a marriage book that he recommended that unlocked a huge breakthrough in my perplexing career struggles. His expertise in midlife crisis was also a huge help.

I’ve known (and respected) Mike for over thirty years, from when he was employed on the executive team at the Herbert River Canegrowers and I was that organisation’s local insurance manager. Eventually we both moved to Cairns and I’d bump into Mike occasionally at business or community functions but more often than not I’d read about Mike in the papers in his role as the regional general manager for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. In that capacity Mike not only brought a greater community focus on the RFDS but in my view, he contributed so much to that organisation’s development and service initiatives throughout Far North Queensland. I keep telling him that he needs to write that book! By coincidence, all these years later, Mike and I live in the same beautiful part of Far North Queensland in Redlynch Valley. Saturday morning will often see us having a chat over my front garden fence as Mike helpfully (and with great tact) will point out a weed or two that I have missed! A life coach should be a good listener and Mike is great at that. A life coach should, I think, allow you to look at yourself, where you’re going in life and maybe some options on how to get there. And like the best coaches in sport or business, it’s left up to you to make those choices, with Mike at your side if that’s what you need. Mike quietly weaves in life circumstances and shared experiences as naturally as drinking a glass of water. I sometimes think I’m getting free support over our weekend garden chats. There’s more than just weeds in the garden that he’s helped me to eradicate. John Devaney Redlynch Valley June 2017

I specialize in Big Hairy Audacious Goals [BHAGs]. The kinds of goals that seem overwhelming and impossible to anyone else - but thrilling to you. The kinds of goals that when you accomplish them, you are in awe of yourself - and so is everyone else who sees your accomplishment. Whether that is to: - Feel fully engaged at work, in business, and in your life - fully involved with, committed to, and excited about what you do, and who you do it with. - Inspire your teammates/coworkers/clients/customers to aspire to the same. - Planning your sabbatical or mini-retirement - Open the door to wealth - Eliminate "bad" habits - Make healthy choices easily Your BHAG is possible - when you break it down. I've got a process for that. 1. Create the vision You get to decide what success looks-feels-sounds-tastes like to you. I help you get your vision crystal clear. You'll nail down the "Who-What-Why" - this is where the energy starts building! 2. Create the plan We create manageable, and easily achievable steps. The saying that goes "best way to climb a mountain is one step at a time" is old news - and the hard way. You've done all that before. What got you here will keep you here. To achieve something new - you have to do something differently. I got you, Boo. . 3. Consistent & Persistent Action There are no failures - only learning. You don't get your desired result, you just learned how not to do something. You get to go at your own pace, and take action - one step at a time. Each one of your small wins makes the next win easier! And all along focusing on the mindset work that clears away the roadblocks holding you back.
"Marilyn is one of the most phenomenal coaches I have ever worked with. I have done a lot of work on myself - many seminars, silent meditations, classes etc. When I started working with her, I was in a good place however I was a new coach with a lot of fear and little confidence on how to transition into this new field. I am always surprised how quickly Marilyn can get to the root of things and bring out what is really happening. She is an incredible listener and extremely insightful. Her insights and powerful coaching have taken me to places I haven't been before and bring out a new way of looking at things. She holds me accountable and challenges me in ways I wouldn't have thought possible before working with her. Through the use of skills and strategies she has helped me empower myself but also provides an inspiring example of how I want to be as a coach. In coaching with her I have gone from a being a new coach with little confidence to feeling like a powerful coach with over 20 clients. Whether you want to boost your confidence, need help with your own clients, want to become a more powerful coach yourself or completely change and empower yourself in your own life, Marilyn is a person that can and will take you there and help you create what you really want. I feel incredibly lucky to have found someone who can not only help me with all of these things but also keeps it fun and exciting! Working with her has been a transformational experience. I hands down, no questions asked, would recommend her to anyone wanting to feel more confident and live a more fulfilling life!"

What I promise as a Coach: Create yourself as a world of possibilities, not by what the past says that you are, but by the future that your who you are as a possibility says you are. Open up a world for yourself that you have never before thought is available. Create yourself in the light of being unstoppable in the face of adversity and gain more confidence, courage, freedom from resentment, a new way of listening, and peace of mind. Be someone people love saying YES to and share yourself with as who you are as the possibility(ies) you have declared that you are. Create a life worth living and a lifestyle worth sharing.
