Life is a process.

Life is a process - an ever-evolving set of circumstances and situations. Times change; places and people change. Have you changed? Sometimes it is worth the time and effort to stop and reflect on who you have become while living a busy, varied life. Sometimes competing priorities tangle us up, or we lose our place in scattered thoughts and activities.

As a life coach, I know how to create a space - without judgment - where your hopes, dreams, fears and challenges can be seen and heard. With compassion and heart-felt encouragement, I can facilitate a process that enables you to write your own story and design your own future. Everyone has a unique path to walk -it's just a little more fun and a whole lot less scary to have a companion along the way. I invite you to take a little time to yourself and explore the possibility of life coaching with me.

Clarity. Compassion. Creativity.

Together, we will discover what deeply resonates for you - the things that have meaning and relevance in your life. Your personal values and desires bring focus and purpose to who you are and what you do. Clarity.

I will meet you with an open heart and encourage you to be loving towards yourself and others. By gently exploring your beliefs and perceptions, we will find ways for you to act on what matters most. Compassion.

Every life has its' own colour and texture. With curiosity and reverence (and a little light-hearted playfulness), we will discover and bring the beauty of your world into focus. Creativity.

MT Janet’s talent for life and leadership coaching is exceptional. I had the opportunity to be a recipient of her skillful coaching when we worked together over several sessions.

Knowing Janet years earlier as a (synchronized skating) teammate, she has always had a professionalism and quiet leadership about her. In our coaching sessions, I was impressed by her ability to create a safe and respectful learning environment while challenging me to shift perspectives and become curious.

She is genuinely dedicated to her practice and her clients. As a life and leadership coach, Janet has my warmest recommendation.

MF As a company we went through a challenging ownership transition and the new share holders wanted to build staff engagement for change.

Meetings and seminars were planned through the week and Janet led exercises that challenged and drove introspection with a diverse technically oriented team. Her input on the structure of our program was critical to the success.

I admire you, Janet!

TE Janet is exceptionally compassionate in her coaching style. During our sessions, I admire her innate ability to hold the space for me to explore my options going forward. I am not an easy fellow as I tend to bounce all over the place in my thoughts and speech. That said, Janet lets me be me then helps to get grounded and focus on what needs to be said and done. The end of each result brings a variety of compelling results. Thank you Janet for helping me to keep and live my life with simplistically, clarity, peace-of-mind and purpose.
