Life Coaching in Barrie & Area
I founded Damselfly Transformations with the conviction that all women are intuitive and influential creators. I believe that our trials and challenges summon us to tap into these strengths and that it is our responsibility to discover how to do this.
As we move through life and face transitions and change, we are called upon to dive deep into self-care, and what it means to take full responsibility for our life and our self.
In navigating my own life experiences and challenges, I have come to the sobering realization that I alone am responsible for my life and happiness. As overwhelming as this realization has felt at times, it has also been incredibly freeing and empowering. By applying the principles of "Self-Care," I was able to tap into my strengths and self-awareness and find the resources and strategies I needed to support myself on my journey. Now, as a self-care coach, my goal is to share what I have learned with other women. I am passionate about supporting my clients in identifying their self-care needs and determining the strategies necessary for designing their life on their terms.
“Philosophical definition of self-care refers to the care and cultivation of self in a comprehensive sense – focusing in on the soul and knowledge of self.” Wikipedia
