Background and Why?  

Currently there are a number of reasons why it is important for womxn to stop and focus on looking after themselves. Some of the research states -

  • Australian womxn are more likely to report a long-term mental or behavioural problem and higher levels of psychological distress than men.
  • Working Australians are reporting significantly lower levels of job satisfaction and work-life balance.
  • Family and financial issues were the leading cause of stress for women.
  • One in three marriages end in divorce.
  • Womxn are significantly more likely than men to be concerned about most sources of stress including financial issues, family and relational issues, health issues – self or other, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
  • More than one in five Australians (22%) reported mental health issues as a source of stress.

These factors as well others can have an impact on the health and wellbeing of womxn, so it comes as little surprise that womxn are finding it increasingly difficult to find time to nurture their own personal wellbeing and prioritise themselves.

Presently, maybe you...

Feel like you don't have enough time, feeling drained and run down as there is too much to do in your professional life?

Can't remember your own needs and priorities in life?

Have your paperwork piling up and cannot find what you are looking for?

Continue to doubt and question yourself?

Missing deadlines and not following through on important tasks?


Procrastinating as you don't know where to start?

Or even feeling a sense of powerlessness over your personal life?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, don't worry you are not alone!

Why not join us for Befriending You, so you can discover where you are and start creating a life you love (and yes it is possible 🙂 )!

Personal Growth and (Un)Learning

Wisdom & Flow

There may be days (or weeks) in your profession or business when you do not have very much energy. However, when you are aligned with your own heart, body and spirit and other people supporting you something happens and life starts to flow with greater ease and grace.

Practice, Practice, Practice...

The key to life is paying attention and being present. Yes, this can be challenging. On the surface, it can appear easier to bolt and run away (don't worry I have done that many, many times), however in the long run it doesn't work. This is why we are going to continually practice coming back to focus on yourself and your needs.


No longer will you feel like you are trying to do it all by yourself! In Befriending You, you will be setting up, focusing on and developing systems to track your accountability. You will find yourself more inspired to take action when you have a support system cheering you on.

Participant Feedback...

Thank you so much Jane I really enjoyed your ‘Befriending me’ course, being able to go back to the course online as a refresh I was able to sit and ponder aspects of the course in my own time. The online tutorials each week I was able to clarify and understand the next stage which I think is a fantastic combination.

I really enjoyed delving into different areas to reconnect with myself. I did not realize I needed help with areas such as ‘what drives you?’ This was a question I had to really think about. I realized I was a bit like a machine just getting up doing what I needed to keep going and then crash at the end of the day. Then starting this course with Jane made really think about really matters to me.

I regularly go back to the online course and use the skills in daily challenges I may encounter.

Why I created Befriending You...

Hi - I am Jane Taylor - let me share a little bit about me. After following the traditional path of success in a number of fields (tennis/sport, coaching and education), one day I thought - "there must be more to life than this..."

I was on a familiar treadmill - working long hours, travelling around Australia for work (which meant frequently being away from family and friends), not exercising much or looking after my health, really busy and very tired. On the outside it appeared as though life was great, however I was struggling, lost and didn't know what to do.

Following a lot of personal struggle and looking for love / acceptance and lots of answers on the outside (i.e. people, achievements etc), I started to realise that personal freedom, love, happiness and wellbeing was an inside job and I had to do the work to discover that place within me and what these things meant for me - yes truly know that in my heart (i.e. befriending myself). I spent many years attending (and running/facilitating) personal and professional development, retreats and worked with some great teachers, coaches and mentors along the way (to whom I am deeply grateful for).

Today I can finally say, I know who I am. I know my strengths and weaknesses, am happy, healthy, having fun with life and have a group of people around me to whom I trust and confide in. I am Simply ME! Subsequently... Befriending You was created...
