"I wanted to learn to be to someone who could stick to an exercise plan......

I had about 15 lbs to lose.........

but that was a small biproduct of what I actually achieved.

For me the outcome of the process was a big heap of compassion for myself, and an honest understanding and acceptance of who I was, where I had come from and how my thoughts were holding me back.

My sessions with Traci felt like I was having an important conversation with a good friend.  It was liberating to be able to say things that I thought I shouldn’t say – it was incredibly valuable to get those thoughts and feelings out into the open.  Traci is lovely to talk to, and wraps you in a big virtual blanket. I looked forward to our sessions every week because they were fun as well as enlightening.

As well as gaining compassion for myself, I also got new insight into a difficult relationship in my life.

My new found compassion for myself means that I am much less ‘extreme’ in my exercise and in my eating habits.  I have learnt that if I don’t beat myself up, I am much more likely to make progress in whatever I choose to do.

Traci clearly adores what she does and she is gifted in listening, understanding and getting to the crucial issue quickly.  She is a delightful person, and I feel very lucky to have worked with her.

Traci has helped me realise that to make a change, there is always a struggle. But struggle doesn’t have to be a negative word, it can be positive and uplifting."

"Thank you again for our sessions. I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into, but I am feeling a change
in me. Thanks you for your guidance in many areas of my life!  I will definitely be selling your talents.

Here is a list of things you helped with:

Helping me work to get rid of the negative talk and that all athletes have negative talk.  

Taught me how to work through how to set goals for myself.

I always walked away feeling very empowered, refreshed and emotional strong.

I now know and do take time for myself and remember that if I’m the best me, then I can bring the best into all my relationships.
She taught me how to bring out my badass! It has helped me in all aspects of my life through communicating what I really want or need.
I have already booked her to work with my college athlete daughter.  Traci has a pure natural non-intimidating way of coaching.  She is never shy about sharing her own personal experiences and is an extremely good listener.  I always walked away from our sessions with a task at hand, the confidence, the empowerment to follow through.  During the times between sessions, I could reflect back to our conversations for guidance.
Maybe it’s just something nagging at you about yourself that you would like to change, or be it a big obstacles in your life but everyone could use a life coach.  You don’t know you do until you try it.

"I was struggling to apply changes I wanted to make in my life. In my mind I knew what I wanted or who I wanted to be, but I was not able to effectively apply it. I was frustrated because I felt “stuck".

I was so impressed with the insight that Traci had into how my personal struggles at the time were manifesting in my home. I just felt like “she gets it”.

I now have a better understanding of why I do certain behaviors and I have been able to work to challenge some of my thinking. She also helped me to have more compassion for myself and less judgement. 
She was non-judgmental and very supportive and helped me to realize the importance of self-care. It  was so nice to have her support and she help me to meet goals that would have taken me much longer if I had to work on my own. 
Traci made me feel important and helped me to understand that I am worth investing in myself so I can be the best version of myself. "

"I wanted to stop being addicted to sweets.  I know Traci from different circles and like her view on life in general.  I felt that she was really a person who was in it to help people see their potential as well as how to move forward in a way to tackle their life struggles.

I learned that I had to tools right in front of me to work out my daily struggles. Traci also gave me more tools to help deal with what life throws your way. 

I really liked the model she uses to evaluate the problem and how to go forward in conquering the problem at hand. She was very personable and I felt she provided a safe environment to be open with your struggles.

She reminded you that some things in the world will never change and that the change must come from you.

It provided a place to be safe and feel good about yourself.

I would definitely recommend Traci to anyone who wants to gain confidence and really accept that you are the one who makes decisions in the end.

I looked forward to meeting with Traci each week.  She has a way about her that draws out the struggles you are dealing with and then concentrating and getting you to reflect on them and then helps you find a way to deal with them in an everyday setting.  Traci also helps you find your confidence in yourself and realize that you can tackle anything that life throws you.  She is an easy person to admire and want to emulate.

"I feel my initial goal with asking you for coaching on my desire to get a regular consistent exercise routine.

Something simple….got really deep and so much more.  Each session was full and so thought provoking and encouraging.  We could have (and did sometimes) talk forever.
I really benefitted from learning that I had so much self judgement and perfectionism that was holding me back on achieving my goal of daily exercise.
My approach on exercise now is so much more loving and serving to my whole body health and emotional health.  Instead of it being a punishment.  With my coach training, I intellectually knew this, but Traci showed me how my own thoughts were still believing it as punishment and not fun.  I no longer beat myself up over my exercise or not exercising.  And I do see that I am much more consistent with exercise.  There are some days when I don’t work out but I am ok with it and there are far more days that I do work out and that is a benefit that spills over greatly in all areas of my life.
I hired you because I knew you would be able to get at the root of my issue.  You not only had the training and expertise, you were real and got me…my desires and my struggles.  I knew that you had a wide variety of training and life experience that you would teach me something new…or in a different way.  I wanted a coach that had the level of your training and life experience….business owner, parent, divorce, remarried, athlete and competitor, second career.

The outcome I got is I redefined exercise to something that I love and it works with me.  I now prioritize it in my day and follow through because I don’t feel shame and stopped beating myself up.

I looked the convenience of having the coaching session from anywhere and over zoom.  I liked that we laughed a lot even when we were going deep.  You made some serious issues fun and light.  We were connected and I connected with your style of coaching.
Other benefits….I saw how my thoughts around exercise showed up in other areas of my life…career and relationships.
We also touched on relationships with my family and how the perfectionism and judgement thinking was getting in the way of my relationships.
So much knowledge and personal experiences that I could relate to and carry with me.

Great balance of deep work and simple practical hands on, easy to implement tips and tricks to move forward with.

"Traci was a fantastic coach who really helped me re-frame some specific issues that I was having with feelings of overwhelm and anxiety about my work life. She was a thoughtful and empathetic coach who listened carefully, but also provided guidance with authority and experience. I would recommend Traci to anyone interested in coaching!

Just wanted to take a minute to thank you again for our convo.......You said things that made me think and things I needed to hear.........a friend today made the comment that she’s so happy to see me so excited about something.   I don’t know what the universe holds quite yet but I’m thankful it brought me you

A letter from a client:

Seems crazy, but one session with you this morning did more than 5 days in “paradise” (in fact it didn’t even come close)! Thank you!!!

I feel like I was a catamaran that tipped over, and couldn’t quite right myself…..but now I feel like I am back on course again - I know day 1 is easy after a coaching session, but really feel like I am relearning a lot of what I already know but just forgot it along the way (or it was too easily eroded as it hadn’t sunk in enough yet)….And understanding more about what is behind my behaviours and what I can do to alter that course – now that’s empowering stuff!!!

It’s also crazy how I can be too easy on myself ...... and also too hard on myself ........and neither is all that healthy!

I know I have a long way to go…..but really feeling like I am on the right path forward…..I am learning so much more about me and how I’ve been operating, and HOW to put into effect lasting and effective changes – something I’ve been searching for most if not all of my adult life.

And that is largely thanks to you! I am getting SO much out of your coaching – I can’t thank you enough!  While (group programs) are good at providing some great tools, I’m finding changes are exponentially occurring through your feedback and wisdom and coaching ability to get to the heart of things and say it how it is AND provide a way through to learn and grow…..

Looking forward to what we can achieve......!

Thanks again,
