Do you keep dreaming about taking time out from the busy-ness and chaos?

Do you long for an opportunity to open
up to deeper directions in your life?

Do you sometimes wish you could just
take some time to relax, get still and
listen to that wise voice within?

Join me for 3 days this November –

and see what it's like to experience inner peace, discover true

happiness, and take the first steps to creating the life that

you've always wanted.

Dear Powerful, Passionate Woman,

I just wanted to jump right in and talk about the most important person in your life:


Seriously. Just think about it for a moment.

Because without YOU there is no life!

I’m going to bet that you already lead a busy life.


  • You’re a woman who has lots to do and many roles to play. There’s just not enough time in the day.

  • You have things that you want to do but can’t get started because there’s always something else to do first.

  • You’re used to putting your dreams on the back burner because ‘reality’ gets in the way.

  • You’ve tried to change things, but it didn’t work…so you gave up.

  • You’re feeling like you’re stuck in a rut with your career, your life or your relationships and don’t know what to do next.

  • You feel like you’re surrounded by chaos and reactivity and you’re fed up with feeling overwhelmed.

  • You’re so busy doing things that you don’t have time to think about what you really want.

  • Your life feels flat just now. There has to be something more.

  • You feel like life is passing you by and you feel powerless to change it.

  • Your boss, friends and family seem to demand all of your time.

  • You’re at a crossroads in your job. You don’t enjoy going to work. You’re just going through the motions because it’s a safer option.

  • You’ve come to realise that there has to be more than getting up, going to work, coming home, and satisfying everyone else’s needs.

  • You’re used to putting yourself last and you’ve no energy left when you finally get round to you.

  • It’s really hard to even consider that things can be different when you’re physically and mentally tired or burnt out. The idea of this feels like just another thing to add to your already full To Do List.

  • It’s easier to ignore and carry on doing what you’ve always done. Maybe things will change later in the year? Perhaps you’re just waiting for something different to happen?

If this sounds like you, then you’re not alone…

I totally get it.

I’d like you to give yourself a little space just now to consider this:

If you could just make just ONE thing in your life different, what would that be?

How would it make you feel? What would you be doing? Where would you be living?

How would you spend your free time?

Your ONE thing is so do-able!

How do I know this? And what makes me so sure that YOU can create such amazing results? Well, I've been exactly where you are now – and I turned it all around.  

I was too busy trying to survive in my own chaotic and reactive life. I had no time to imagine how things could be different. I was too busy focusing on the do-do of getting things done. I know what it’s like to keep falling short. I know what it’s like to wonder if the life you dream of is just a dream. I was struggling with so many things and could not understand why my success didn’t make me happy.

At the time, my definition of success was:

Success = Effort

My philosophy was this: The harder and longer hours I worked, the more successful I would be.

This was my unconscious belief, and unwittingly, it also became my work ethic for at least three years!

I regularly threw myself on the altar of self/personal sacrifice for work. I worked extremely long hours in the belief that my superiors would recognize my sacrifice. They would value my effort and promote me.

This philosophy left little time for me, for my life, my relationships, and my health. These all became very low on my priority list. I worked an insane schedule and this fueled my need to be successful. I was locked into this cycle. I was stuck and couldn't see a way out.

This was a defining moment in my life…

One day… I found myself sobbing my eyes out over my expenses. I just couldn’t do it anymore. I couldn’t continue to work at this insane, reactive pace. At that moment I remember it clearly I crashed and burned. I was signed off sick with ‘exhaustion’ for a month.

I am so grateful for this happening because I realized I had been running around trying to GET promoted, but I had no idea why. It was something that I thought successful people were supposed to want, and I wanted to be successful!

Through this haze I also realised that I was in a very unhappy relationship and had been avoiding dealing with this for over a year. I focused on working longer hours and kept myself busy instead.

So what did I learn from all of this?

Sometimes, when we try to get something, we don’t consider why we want it, and therefore, we only work on external factors to make it happen. I call this the Outside – In approach.

I reached outwards to try to get recognized and promoted. I didn’t stop to look at my current blocks to success, such as my belief patterns, fears, and personal values, or how the increased effort was impacting my personal life or health. I kept making the same mistakes, following the same patterns, and getting stuck in the same rut over and over again.

I was so unhappy with my situation, but didn’t know how to change it – after all I was successful! But at what cost was my success?

External action alone rarely achieves powerful results because you are not working at a deeper level to create sustainable change. My existing mindset was set at a default of "work harder" and this did not address any of the blockages. I did not set my mind for success, I programmed it for exhaustion! I was out of alignment with what I really wanted.

It really is an inside job! 

Sustainable change can only be made from the Inside - Out. Therefore, anything that you want to change is up to you, because it’s about your Inside. You get to choose what you want to change and when you want to change it. No amount of persuasion or emotional appeal from anyone else will make you change. The change starts from the Inside - Out.

The source of my exhaustion was me.

My entire game changed.

I made a conscious decision.

I realised that I had to begin the change from the Inside - Out! It’s true that creating sustainable change is more about the things you remove from your life – not what you add to it.

At that moment, I re-defined my definition of success on my own terms. It wasn’t about the external praise, long hours and recognition. Success for me was about being happy. I was no longer going to settle and survive. I decided to turn my life around and live it for me.

So I set about making it happen in a big way.

And that's what I did.

From that moment on, I took conscious action. I invested in myself. I hired a life coach and read every self-help book that was recommended to me! I made my life about my own definition of success.

I decided to live life from where I wanted to be…

I hired a coach. She introduced me to my two dear friends, discipline and persistence! I learned how to take responsibility for my life instead of blaming others for my lack of action or results.

My coach was there to encourage me and guide me through.

I created daily success habits and momentum. Everything changed for me and I created my own authentic Brilliant Life.

Creating transformation in your life is all about starting from exactly where you are. You can start NOW using the principles that I’m going to share with you during the retreat. It’s all about changing HOW you do things, working from the Inside - Out. By looking at HOW you live your life, you can begin to shift some unconscious habits that no longer serve you. You’ll re-connect to your inner voiceyour true power.

Focusing on HOW you do things rather than WHAT you do will help you to create REAL SUSTAINABLE change.

My LiveBrilliant Women’s Retreat provides a safe, exciting, and conscious environment for like-minded women so that each participant can look deeply at her own life, and check in with her heart and soul about the direction in which her life is heading. 

In that space, you will see what things, thoughts or obstacles need to be released, and how to enhance the gifts that are already there. As a coach, consultant, and writer, I teach using my own life's challenges and successes as a backdrop to encourage, inspire, and guide participants. This is my authentic purpose.

Mostly I want to acknowledge that you're going to be a part of something really wonderful, which will allow you to relax, and get still, and listen to that wise voice within as 2011 turns towards its final days. It's my favourite time of year to get still and open up to deeper directions in life.


Okay…Here’s a look at what we’ll be exploring during our weekend together. There are six stepping stones to LiveBrilliant. I promise to share with you my own secrets, how-tos, and approaches to follow so that when you head home you can live from this place knowing what you need to do.

My intention is to hold space for you to give yourself time to dream about what you want and you will begin to experience the possibility.

Your CLARITY is the start of what has created massive changes for me – and also for my clients. Clarity is the first stepping stone to creating transformations in your life.

If you want to change your life, then you have to make a Decision. Once you have a clear intention, you then have to DECIDE to move towards it. This requires 100% commitment. I will support you as you begin to flex your decision making muscles, especially if you haven’t used them for a while.

“There are no happier people on this planet than those who decide that they want something, define what they want, get hold of the feeling of it even before it's manifestation and then joyously watch the unfolding as, piece by piece by piece, it begins to unfold. That's the feeling of your hands in the clay.”

~ Abraham-Hicks (Esther and Jerry Hicks)

It’s natural that once you’ve gotten clear on your intention and decide to move towards it that some Roadblocks or obstacles may appear before you. Most of us can’t see the obstacles that we create for ourselves – the things that get in the way of our own happiness and success. That's okay.

I’ll support you and show you how to recognise your internal and external ROADBLOCKS and EXACTLY WHAT STEPS TO TAKE to begin creating big changes in your life.

Have you attended workshops and courses where you’re working well into the evenings and return home with a head full of information and arms full of notes (which usually gather dust in a file)? The next day, you return to the do-do of work and life, and continue to do things as you did before?!

The same can be true in our busy lives; we don’t allow enough space to grow. Integration is a natural process all it requires is some space and time. I purposely give you space for reflection, because this is so important for learning and growth. Space is a fertile environment. Deep progress happens during silence and stillness (you might choose to have a massage, sit by the lake, or walk around the beautiful grounds!).

Life is all about Transition – we are in constant motion.

As we grow, our roles change as we are in constant flow. We can learn to embrace it. Real change comes from the inside – out. It’s not a quick fix and can take time, especially if it’s a huge paradigm shift in your life.

You’ll learn how to identify your core values and centre your life on these principles. I’ll show you how to break out of paradigms that no longer serve you, move out of comfort zones and let go of old habits. Sometimes this can feel awkward, but it’s totally okay I’ll guide you to tap into your own personal power.

Taking Conscious Action is a huge element of creating and realizing any Intention. Taking conscious action is when you get to Live On Purpose. Activities are defined, deliberate and purposeful.

Taking ACTION is empowering. It moves you in the direction of your Intention. It teaches you how to work through feeling uncomfortable. The more ACTION you take, the less uncomfortable you will feel. That feeling of fear will begin to dissolve. You’ll create a do-able plan of ACTION that you can hit the ground running with when you return home!

Here's what you get...


Let your guard down in a beautiful countryside mansion that lets you be the princess you’ve always wanted to be!

Gaunt's House is a delightful countryside mansion providing peace, space and tranquility, set in extensive grounds near the sleepy town of Wimborne, Dorset.

It’s an amazing atmosphere optimized for your awakening experience.

Choose between a single or shared room (see options when you reserve your place).


Enjoy delicious home-cooked vegetarian cuisine.

Each day we spend together during our retreat is ALL about YOU!

So that means you don’t have to worry about where you’re going to get your next meal. I take care of all of that.

Your meals are freshly cooked with fresh vegetables and locally sourced ingredients. According to season and availability the chefs like to use their own organic Gaunt's Estate produce. 

Special diets can be catered for when arranged in advance.

A selection of hot and cold drinks are available 24 hours a day!

Sacred space and enough free time to hear your inner wisdom.

You get to take time out from the busy-ness of your life and spend time with the most important person in your life…YOU.

I’m sure you’re familiar with attending workshops where there is a tendency to load you down with work and things to think about. Maybe you’re conditioned to cramming your head with information to figure out how to do everything right or perfectly the first time. So your brain’s on the go all the time.

Well, not at this retreat!

Deep progress happens during stillness and silence, when you’re quiet, when you rest and allow some space and stillness into your day. This is where paradigms begin to shift.

This is so vital for inner work. It’s not all about the doing – It’s also about the space in between the activities. It’s about your relationship with YOU.

Quiet time is part of this weekend. There is so much space and peace at Gaunt's House. You can walk, sit by the lake or even take a nap. 

This is my special gift to you.

Tools and worksheets to help you get clear and break through into a deeper place of stillness.

I’ve hand selected tools, activities and worksheets that are simple to follow, easy to use and fun!

I personally use each one – so I KNOW that they REALLY work!

You’ll get time to reflect and write in your own journal and even create your own personal Vision Board.

Sacred Circle by the firelight.

Experience the powerful force of coaching at many levels spiritual, practical and behavioural.

Each evening we will achieve so much more as a group, by sitting together in a sacred circle by the firelight. Where you can ask any questions that come up and, I will mentor you through any challenges that you may be experiencing.

You will actually feel the positive energy and power of the group!

Go deeper with a complimentary 60 minute yoga session!

We will begin on Saturday morning with a complimentary yoga session for everyone who wants to deepen their relaxation and connection to their body.

Whether you are a yoga fanatic or this is your first class, we will gently start the day with stretching and aligning your body and soul


Enjoy the option of furthering your relaxation by scheduling a massage!

If you would like a massage during the weekend, this is available for a small additional fee.

You don't need to worry about missing retreat activities. If you miss something, I'll catch you up when you return from the massage!
