Hi I am Jane - I am a Whole-Hearted Connection Coach and Mentor who supports athletes and professionals to stop abandoning themselves and start to reconnect with their courage and listen to their own inner wisdom. I support them to untangle from too much stress, imposter syndrome. people-pleasing and perfectionism, so they can rediscover their inner wisdom and transition in to a place of truly knowing, valuing and trusting themselves, whilst fulfilling their purpose.
Our careers and life can throw us many challenges. At times we can feel overwhelmed, lost or lacking direction and purpose. We could be wanting to start a new career, get our finances organised, recover from an injury, manage our self better, prioritise self-care and time to nourish our body, mend a broken heart, grow and take you life to the next level or just want to try something new and be inspired by life again.
At times like these, it can help to have someone to talk to. Not someone to just motivate you, tell you to love yourself more or remind you to think positively. You want someone who believes in you. Someone who will support you, whilst you gain a fresh perspective and get back in to the flow of life, so you can create and lead a life YOU love.
And that is where I come in...
Supporting you as you take time to reconnect with your courage, realise you matter, believe in you (when you don't), get focused and help you in taking the steps to identify what matters to you and express your truth, so you can free yourself from mental (i.e. unhealthy habits, limiting beliefs and overthinking), emotional and physical clutter and create a life, career and relationship YOU love.
You + me. Partnering in your courageousness to express your truth, trust yourself and being your own authority.
Here's more information on who I serve...
Who We Serve...
I spent the first part of my life (up until 23) playing professional tennis and then the second part of my life (un)learning and teaching. After I became a Health and PE Teacher at university, I have been teaching students across P-12, helping schools develop whole-school approaches to wellbeing as well as coaching athletes and professionals towards whole-hearted connection.
Subsequently, I have three main groups of people I work with:
Supporting athletes (current and past) develop their resilience and look after their wellbeing, they can bring their best to the sporting arena with evidence-based tools and strategies.
We partner with professional and corporate services to help increase engagement, motivation and wellbeing within the workplace using a range of evidence-based tools and strategies.
We partner with schools to develop the capacity of educators and support staff to nurture their own wellbeing so they can then support the students and live in alignment with their purpose.
"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy - the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light." ~ Brené Brown
The coaching and mentoring model I use when working with clients draws from the latest evidence-based coaching and educational research, intuitive eating, somatic education, cognitive behavioural, self-compassion and mindfulness-based tools and techniques, which (simply) look at the connection between thoughts, emotions, and actions. The intention is to support you to discover proactive ways to solve challenges and untangle from unconscious, unhelpful thinking and behaviour.
At Habits for Wellbeing, we've realised -
- Self-knowledge is the beginning of wisdom, just like Aristotle said - “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” - which is why we focus on knowing yourself on the mind, body and soul level.
- Every person has unique talents, skills and strengths to offer this world and we want you to share them. However, permission to use them can only come from you!
- YOU are the expert in your own life (sometimes we just need some support to feel the barriers of what is holding us back from opening your heart).
- Every moment of every day we have choices to make (either conscious or subconscious). The choices are either based in love or fear - we choose love and whole-hearted connection!
- In honouring the Yin (the feminine) and the Yang (the masculine) to live in peace and harmony.
- When we discover the courage to change from within our own mind and hearts, that change impacts families, workplaces, communities and the world.
We deeply care about people and everyone's life and well-being matters (mine, yours and everyone else's as well). We are all in this together, so let's support each other by being real and authentic with each other so we can let each others light shine!
"Great! Thanks. I feel positive to continue on my life journey knowing what I can work on to continue to have success in life." - School Principal
"Can see myself using all of these skills. Great leadership and facilitating a comfortable/safe space Jane." - Teacher, Brisbane
