Certified as a Heal Your Life® Life Coach based on the teachings of Louise Hay, Stephanie incorporates self-love, mindfulness and affirmations into her coaching and counselling sessions. She has specific interest in self-esteem and confidence work, with a focus on accepting and loving oneself in the process of personal growth and authentic change.
Stephanie understands that people from all walks of life experience obstacles throughout their journey, and has learned that what makes a difference is how one approaches and learns from these obstacles. She is passionate in collaborating with her clients on their road to healing, helping them to uncover their limiting thoughts and beliefs and to discover their unique strengths. With her accepting nature and warm personality, she has a down-to-earth style that gives clients the space to feel comfortable and safe in her presence.
After living on the East Coast of Canada for four years, Stephanie is now excited to be settled in her home town. Self-care is important to her, and in her spare time she enjoys exercising, meditating, using Emotional Freedom Technique, reading, preparing healthy meals, and spending time with family and friends.
