My name is Desre. I graduated with a Diploma in Life Coaching from the Australian Institute of Life Coaches in 2012. Since that time I’ve been working in my current position as a Clinical Nurse in a chronic disease team in Metro North Queensland Health. My background is in nursing and health education. I use my life coaching skills is to assist people develop the skills they already possess to achieve maximum health and wellness. The reason I decided to become a Life Coach was to maximise the benefits I can gain with clients to support them in achieving their goals. I enjoy being a Life Coach because I can see the changes that people make when they realise that they are capable of achieving their goals. The things that I have learnt about myself during the course are that I can achieve anything I set out to do and when I fail in anything I can look at it as a learning experience and move on. The things that I have learnt about other people is that they are capable of so much more than they think they are.

Welcome! My name is Tess.I am a life coach, spirit junkie and artist. If I could have a dinner party and invite three guests who inspire and influence me the most I would have to choose Oprah, Marina Ambramovic and Beyonce. I aim to be fierce, vulnerable, hard working, empowering, loving and one hundred percent true to who I really am in this life time. I want this for everyone. I specialise in coaching men and women to release fear and start living to their full potential. After graduating from university I looked around and saw no clear path, no definite outcome and no straightforward answers to any of my questions. I hated when people asked me “what next?” (it was the bane of my existence). I hated asking myself “what do I want?” (insert crickets chirping). I was afraid. I was afraid to make a wrong move. God forbid I make a mistake and not have it all together like the attractive celebrities I followed on social media. I didn’t want to let my family down and I didn’t want to be left behind. For six years I jumped from job to job and from goal to goal just to keep moving and to look like I was living a life. Each jump took time, money and effort and then it all left me feeling alone at the end, underwhelmed and desperate to get it right the next time. I created a vicious cycle for myself. I was asking all the wrong questions and looking in the completely wrong direction. After looking outwards, forwards and backwards with no solutions and no relief, there was no where else to turn except inward. It was there that I began to listen to my inner loving voice instead of the fleeting fearful voices in my head. I began to fully understand myself, life and the world. It was there that I was lead to become a qualified life coach It doesn’t have to be so complicated. It doesn’t have to be so stressful, anxious and depressing. Life is meant to be joyful, creative, abundant and loving. To start you need someone to ask you the right questions and for you to answer them by looking in the right direction. Inward. Then you can resolve your own woes and regain insight, power and freedom. For more information or to begin your life coaching sessions, please contact me below. Look forward to hearing from you!

My name is Carol Sutton. I am almost 50 years old. I have worked in engineering all of my life. I have had two major career changes – one at 22 when I realised that the computers I wanted to design were already designing themselves, and one when I left engineering and went into coaching,2016-02-04_1444 reflecting a growing desire to help other people, outside of their normal sphere of influence, achieve their dreams. I have had two minor changes, one when I went into Strategic Consulting and one when I went into the private sector Operations Management. So as a ‘thriver’ of at least four career changes I am a Life Coach with practical experience of making career changes work without having to put the rest of your life on hold.

I have been on the receiving end of some very good coaching both informally and formally throughout my life. Coaching has always been part of what I do as a leader. I have practical experience of helping people develop professionally within the business and technical environments.

 Changing a career, whether forced on you or not, is scary as in most cases you need to earn money through that career to support a life style – I can offer strategies to help you transition so that there is no discernible drop in income.

 Changing careers usually means learning new things – I can offer strategies to help people get real experience that will help them get the right skills to do the new roles with the minimum of financial outlay.

Other than the 10% of my time that I spend working within the not-for-profit sector, I can help you with your career change or help you and your friends if you are having a changed forced on you.

Call me on 0401521120 to book a coaching session.

It’s always nice to hear your story.

 2016-02-04_1530Paula moved to Queensland in 2012, raised her family here and built up several businesses and investments. Paula understands the demands on the modern woman to meet expectations and standards that are close to Super Woman.

Her personal experiences of working in a high pressured corporate environment, management and sales roles bring valuable insights to her highly driven and career-focussed clients.

A car accident left Paula with the choice of continuing to get everything done before midnight to look elegant and be Miss Efficient the next day. And the choice of learning to delegate (more), ask for help and put herself first to recover from injuries – with the risk of losing the façade.

Paula understands firsthand the challenges and mindset shifts that one experiences going through this (and similar) lifestyle transition/s and uses these experiences plus her learned skills to continually add value to her clients, friends and people she meets.

What type of client’s do you work with? The company can engage our services for key team members [CEO, Executives and/or Managers] or individual approach us directly.

Paula works with clients that are driven, focussed and are looking to reach the next level, the next step up on their plan.

What this means is that you don’t have to have something ‘wrong’ with you before you engage these coaching services, more like you want to be ‘better’. Examples include:

 Building stronger and more influential relationships personally and/or in business

 Gaining an edge over competition for increased performance [results] and sales – understanding your individual story and point of difference

 Identifying and utilising structures, systems and processes for driving results through others. Building team/s performance and outcomes as a direct result

 Connecting to innovative and multiplistic based thinking for increasing the level of choice/s available to the team and business and taking results to the next level

Linking to a relevant mission or purpose to ensure the long term viability, motivation and sustainability of the goals, health of individuals and the business

So that you can:

 Get that raise / promotion / secure your dream client

 Land the highest level of opportunity you currently dream about

 Earn commission and/or generate profit like never before

 Establish or increase the level of performance of your team/s

 Increase your level of influence as a leader

 Present confidently to groups [public speaking]

Why Choose The Performance Institute and Paula McSporran?
