More about Patricia
International Life Coach for Women (16+ years) Patricia's personal journey made her passionate about helping women free themselves of stress patterns that deny them the rich, full, life they deserve.
Global Community. Patricia is sensitive to world cultures and coaches women in North America, Asia and Europe. Canadian born and English grown, and having lived in Singapore and Japan, her first career as a linguist [French, German and Italian] involved extensive travel throughout Europe and understanding different cultures.
Committed to a Heart-Centered, Whole Person Perspective that combines body, mind, spirit and emotions. 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 more than two decades. She combines holistic self-care practices, to nurture a healthy body, peaceful mind, vibrant spirit, and balanced emotions.
Favorite pastimes? Hiking, especially up to alpine lakes, cycling, reading and planting flowers and vegetables in the back garden.

Stress Less Live More Philosophy
- Each of us is unique - there is not one other person exactly like us, so solutions to our problems will be unique.
- We can trust our inner creative genius rather than external solutions.
- Real solutions involve our whole being - a Healthy Body, a Peaceful Mind, a Vibrant Spirit and Balanced Emotions - not one area can be left out.
- There is no failure - only new insights! - and an opportunity to make another choice.
