More about Patricia
As a life coach for women for over 12 years, Patricia is passionate about helping busy professional women who are tired of sacrificing their health and happiness to a hectic schedule live bigger, richer and more fulfilling lives... without guilt.
She is sensitive to world cultures and coaches women in other countries. Canadian born and English grown, she realized a childhood dream to become a linguist [French, German and Italian] and traveled extensively throughout Europe.
A former overeater and yoyo dieter, the turning point came when Patricia saw her "weight issue" was really a "stress issue". Once she dealt with daily energy drains she eliminated food and weight as an issue for the last 20+ years. Patricia embraces a heart-centered, whole person perspective combining body, mind, spirit and emotions.
Patricia has successfully created a deeply nurturing and unconditionally loving relationship with her husband Bob of 23 years, a joyful movement and meditation practice and a fulfilling professional career.
Favorite pastimes? Hiking, especially up to alpine lakes, cycling, reading, planting flowers and vegetables in the back garden, and spending time with her family and six grandchildren.
Stress Less Live More Philosophy
I guide busy professional women through a six step process to find a richer, fuller and more vibrant life.
1. Open Up Special Time To Be Present With Your Self.
When you value yourself enough to free up quality time, you get out of the trap of automatic responses, old habits and patterns and feeling like the proverbial hamster spinning around on the wheel.
2. Own And Celebrate Your Victories And Your Challenges.
I provide a safe harbor for you to share your profound truths about what's working and what's not working, so you can reaffirm your strengths, learn from the past, and weave these together to set the stage for where you want to go.
3. Take Two Steps Back From Your Immediate Challenge - [it doesn't mean you're not moving yourself forward.]
Stepping back doesn't mean that nothing's going to change! It gives you breathing room to build a stronger foundation to tackle the stickier problems and find the once-and-for-all solution.
4. Use the Nitty-Gritty Challenges Of Everyday Life To Identify The Real Reasons You Are Not Getting What You Want.
Everyday life provides snapshots of what is limiting your progress or highest vision. We will use these nitty gritty challenges to generate a new way of seeing and propel you toward your highest vision.
5. Activate Your Power Of Insight To Create "Once And For All" Solutions
The solutions that will work long-term are those that come out of your own insights to understand these challenges and shift them. Until you have positive experiences generating and using insights, it can be hard to trust them. I see myself as the "training wheels" to help women activate this powerful and life-enhancing ability.
6. Create Momentum With Insight-Inspired Goals And The Right Level Of Challenge
When you put your new insights into action, you power up your life. In each coaching session we'll work together to figure out exactly the right level of challenge and the best application to move your life forward.
If you want to stop sacrificing your health and happiness to the busyness of your life, the key is to break out of your perceived limitations, activate the power of your insight-inspired goals, transform your relationship to the things that cause you stress, and live a bigger, richer, more fulfilling life.
