Love and Acceptance Coaching
Have you tried what feels like everything to shift a certain area of your life (your health, your relationships, or your approach to parenting? (Recovering perfectionists, fear-based parents and people-pleasers...this is a safe space for YOU!)
Do you or a family member experience chronic health issues, challenging emotions or a life-altering diagnosis? Have you experienced a lot of trauma in the past and could use some support "letting go" of the fears, the labels, the stories and the hurt associated with these past experiences?
Does it feel like no matter what you do or try, it isn't enough? Or really, underneath it all, you may be feeling like you are "not enough"? Are you ready to release this "not enough" story and move beyond this to really own your desire for MORE? Are you ready to trade in those old "patterns" (and Ps like perfectionism, performing, procrastination and people-pleasing for more PLAY, patience and presence in your everyday?!) While having some ongoing support to clear those family "patterns" too so you can be the truest most wholehearted and heart-centred YOU!?
Are you a parent, deeply desire to become a parent or could really use some extra support "re-parenting" yourself and your own inner child? Do you have a hard time connecting to your feelings or your own "inner knowing" and want some support re-learning what you may not have learned or received as a little kid? Do you desire to feel empowered and grounded in who you are so you can be a more empowered person/parent and choose a new way forward?
Are you ready to learn a NEW WAY that prioritizes PLAY where you feel safe to "make friends with your feelings", make mistakes and free your inner child so you can BE!!! (Be YOU, while also learning to not just DO all the time but have more space to simply "be" too?!...If you had more space to be, what would you do? How would you play? How would you spend your days?)
Do you have a hard time "pausing", taking that time to "just be" with you and are constantly "do, do, doing", living from one "to-do list" to the next...forgetting that you matter just as much as your goals and achievements do?
If you have nodded (and smiled while being like "oh yea this is totally me!") while reading the above...keep reading, and know you are in the right place because I see you, I know you (I am you and was you) and am here for you/with you!!!
Do you desire to connect with yourself and your loved ones in a more conscious and compassionate way? Are you always putting everybody else's needs, wants and dreams first? Are you constantly holding everybody else (and everything together)...while realizing you are finally ready to let somebody else HOLD YOU!? (Are you ready to break up with the "mothers are martyrs" paradigm and become a mother who is a beautiful empowered model while parenting from your intuition alongside learning with/from others too??)
Are you ready to learn some new tools, tips and embody "new ways of being" so you can model this to your children? Are you ready to heal family dynamics, trauma/pain while finding better ways to connect, communicate and PLAY together? Do you have a desire to feel more supported and feel deeply "seen", understood and loved just as you are?
Do you feel like there are a lot of BIG emotions or uncomfortable "feelings" (or pain) in your body coming up lately? Are you having a hard time finding love, acceptance, connection and compassion moving through them? (And may have a tendency to want to "FIX" them, control, avoid or make them "go away" in order to "be OKAY"!? Cue *anxiety*)
Or maybe you have BIG dreams, desires and visions for your life and are scared of needing to "get it right" or know the whole path before you take the next step...Are you in a period of change/transition, feeling a little alone in it and perhaps a little scared of the unknown? Are you looking for the answers outside of you and ready for some support hearing YOU?
Are your "big feelings" and fears getting in the way of your dreams? Do you feel like despite all the “fixing” you are doing to find a solution in this area of your life, you still seem to feel stuck? Does your journey feel heavy, lonely, confusing and like it's about fixing rather than embodying your joy? Are you letting anyone know how you really feel and what you need? If no, say you're ready and know that this first step is enough. You are exactly where you need to be! Right now.
Do you need some help moving from this constant state of "fight or flight" to "stay and play"...
so you CAN stop surviving and finally start living the life that YOU want and choose!!!
"No problem can be solved by the same level of consciousness that created it"
Are you in need of a "miracle", a shift in perception and a different perspective?
Could you use some help shifting from fear to love (and meeting your fears with a whole lot of love)
along with a loving safe space & support to allow for this?
Are you ready for a new way through? Just like in the story about "going on a bear hunt",
you can't go over it, you can't go under it...you have to go THROUGH it!
In my experience the only way through anything is love and acceptance.
We cannot shift something when we are continually judging it, resisting it, fearing it or not allowing ourselves to BE with it (and breathe through it). How can we learn and grow while letting "it" simply help us grow into who we truly want to be?
How can I shift from "why is this happening TO me" to why is this happening FOR me"?
Whatever the "it" is, we can go through it together and everything is better when we share in it together!
When we have a sense of connection and a "partner" along the journey with us!
You deserve to feel "safe, loved, accepted and connected!"
You can have a safe space to feel these feelings, fears and know that you are not alone. I would love to hold a safe space for you and with you to feel held, seen and supported so you can find a healthier and happier way forward?
Love and Acceptance Coaching supports you to find a new way even if it feels like there is no way.
Let's support you to find your way, together.

Ready for more tools and time to embody your whole self (inner child included!)
and more ways that are supportive of what you want and need?
We will also make a gameplan to help you find what "tools" and daily practices will be most supportive for you (and your whole family) so you can feel empowered to heal from within and ask for/receive what you want and need!
This might include meditation, journaling, self care practices and visualizations to allow you to feel a sense of hope in what can be while accepting what is.
There is definitely "no one size fits all" which is the beauty of individualized coaching for YOU!
This approach also allows you to feel into the "feeling" of what can be while allowing your heart, the electromagnetic frequency of this feeling to heal your brain and your body...explore new possibilities
while not only seeing what's possible but also honouring what stands in the way.
You will have someone to support you, hold you (and the vision of the TRUE YOU) while guiding you through
to create the life and the story YOU choose.
And the beautiful thing is you ALWAYS have a CHOICE!
So what do you want? You get to choose! And choosing to have support along the journey is always a great choice!

connect with Amanda today to see if this 6 month coaching is the best fit for YOU!
SHARING IS CARING!
What others have shared after working with Amanda:
"I can’t really put into words how meeting Amanda has changed me. She is truly inspirational and her positivity, enthusiasm, and kindness are contagious. Amanda has really helped me to see things differently and accept what is and what could be. I will be forever grateful for her. I met Amanda during one of the most difficult periods of my life. At the time, Amanda was brought into work with my youngest son. However, it became apparent that I was in desperate need of coaching, self-love and healing. I was feeling alone, uncertain, vulnerable, and not able to see my own worth. I wasn’t sure how I could ever rise above it at all or see a way through. Amanda helped me see that I was worthy of putting myself first after a long time of putting others well-being before my own.
After working with Amanda, I was able to focus on myself and believe in myself. This gave me the confidence to do things that I never thought I could do and it changed my approach and way of thinking. I was able to find a job after not working for a long time because of the “I can” belief instilled in me by Amanda really teaching me that everything is possible and nothing is impossible! I was doing stuff that I normally would not do because of all the talks we had together and how Amanda taught me to approach and see things. She helped me to see that when I put myself first, this has a positive effect on the whole family (like an upward spiral or “ripple effect”). I can see that if I’m not in a good place, that affects everybody. If I am not in a good place mentally and physically, then I can’t help the rest of my family. I have learned to apply this in different areas of my life and learned coping strategies to deal with any “symptoms”, emotional challenges (outbursts) or difficulties my child is experiencing. I can see how supporting myself in those moments also supports him.”

"I reached out to Amanda because my older son Kane and I were triggering each other causing anger outbursts (from unprocessed grief of losing their father) that was causing division in our family and I desired cohesiveness as a unit. Since taking “Love and Acceptance Coaching” with Amanda, I am more aware of the feelings within myself and other characteristics I have used to survive that have been keeping me stuck. Together, I have continued to widen the window of tolerance. My trauma (PTSD) loop is less prevalent and I no longer feel like I am always in the “fight or flight” window. I am starting to be able to process information better and this is helping me be able to move forward in my life’s journey.
What I found most helpful in my time with Amanda was feeling truly seen and heard and having consistent support during intense processing of emotions. She supported me to create new neuropathways of safety in my head and my heart (a sense of balance). I think part of why this happened is because of a soul felt connection with Amanda. I would most definitely recommend her to others because Amanda has a unique ability to connect on levels not easily explained. All you have to do is meet Amanda and feel the energy and passion she has for helping others. I believe people would instantly feel safe in her presence and the way she can connect with each person is truly a gift and very inspiring to me.”

“My experience working with Amanda was completely transformative and one of the most profound experiences of my life. When I met Amanda I was suffering from chronic fatigue, depression, food sensitivities, and PCOS. Despite my committed efforts to a wide gamut of healing protocols from both western and alternative doctors, I could not get healthy.
In working with Amanda, my health transformed and I underwent a paradigm shift in self-perception and thus my perception of life beyond my self. In each session, I felt the weight of my symptoms evaporate and a growing sense of power to heal from within. To speak of my transformation is to speak of the way it feels to be alive. My life and vision for my future is limitless, unbounded, broken open and expanding. My symptoms of fatigue are significantly less, my hormones are easily balanced, I eat for pleasure, and I am simply happy. I'm working full-time for the first time in my life. At the end of the week I feel energized and excited for the weekend. I spend long hours in the art studio; a practice I had abandoned in my sickness. I am more connected with friends and family. I feel true self-love.
In the big picture of health care, I believe there is nothing greater that one can receive than the ability to heal from within, and the empowerment that comes from the process of realizing this power. Thriving health is available to everyone Amanda works with. Amanda's coaching creates immediate and potent changes in health.
Amanda is warm, kind, loving, and non-judgmental. Her presence in our sessions was full of light and positivity. She is intuitive and perceptive of other people's needs. These qualities combined with her deep understanding of neuroplasticity made for effortless and powerful sessions. From our first meeting, I felt safe to be vulnerable with Amanda. When she listens, I feel like she is really hearing me and when she speaks, I feel renewed focus and confidence.
Another one of Amanda's strengths is her ability to reflect her clients' progress.
Given the non-linear path of recovery, this was totally critical in my journey. At the times when I lost sight of my trajectory, Amanda celebrated my hard work and my wins...in a sense stepping into the role of a higher self when I was struggling to occupy that level of mind. This catalyzed my healing and shortened my lapses of self. This speaks to Amanda's dedication and true caring for her clients.”

"Prior to working with Amanda, I had a bad relationship with money. No matter how hard I worked, I still wouldn't feel like I was worthy or deserved it. I spent a lot of time on personal development around manifesting it but still had this blockage in my body and mind.
After our sessions, I felt as if a weight had been lifted off of my chest. Two weeks after our final session, I closed the largest deal in the history of the company I work for ($300K+). I now have very different thoughts surrounding money, how it flows and what it means to me. Thank you Amanda for the difference you have made in my life!"
~ Brandon, Collingwood, ON
"Since working with Amanda, I feel much more aware and accepting of both my thoughts and emotions — and better understand their connection. I now have tools to use when the going gets tough which has been a positive thing for both my and my family. Generally, I feel calmer and things feel easier than they did before our work together (because of the shifts within myself).
What was most supportive was Amanda’s ability to connect the dots within our family — see where the patterns were and how we can help each other by helping ourselves. My most amazing shift has been releasing the control I was (unknowingly) trying to have over everything and everyone. I now have new awareness and thinking about/seeing things differently thanks to Amanda’s coaching.
I would 100% recommend Amanda to others because she has a unique gift and is just a really wonderful person to get to spend an hour with each week. Amanda has a unique and super effective way of ‘getting at’ the blocks and subconscious thoughts that are holding us back, and helping to move through them with love and acceptance."
