What Walks in the Mother


A couple of years ago, when she was a teenager, my daughter was saying things to me like, ‘I feel fat’, ‘I don’t look good in these clothes’ and ‘I need to lose weight’. She was saying the things that I knew I had said to myself as a teenage girl and, in reality, had also been saying as a woman.

I remember saying to her, ‘Honey you are beautiful, it’s not about the size of your bum, it’s about the size of your heart and the purpose that you have in life. It’s about self-respect and self-love.’ And yet, here I was saying these words to my daughter and the cold hard truth was that I wasn’t actually living it. And I never had. They were just words.

I believe that what walks in the mother runs in the child and it was this significant moment in my life that beckoned me to walk a different path; one that I would be proud for my daughter to follow. I had a deep desire to discover more of the person I was inside; what drove me to behave in certain ways and why I did what I did (and why I didn’t do what I didn’t do).

I began studying human behavior and life coaching at Australia’s leading coaching institute and then created my signature coaching program, which was the genesis of the ‘ART Your Life’ phenomenon. I became a learning machine and expanded my knowledge and skills by becoming an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Master Practitioner and Trainer, Extended Disc Personality Profile Specialist and Trainer and Values Pendulum Practitioner. I now proudly own and manage one of Australia’s most successful life coaching businesses.

ART Your Life is about profound change – whether it’s changing your weight, getting more balance back into your life, or improving your self-esteem – it’s all possible when you decide to make your life a masterpiece and learn to love yourself, your body and your life from the inside out.
