Hey Natalie, can you introduce yourself to us?
I am a qualified & experienced, clinical psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, self-image and corporate & executive coach, international speaker. I specialise in self-image & relationship conflict, anxiety and stress management.
I feel so privileged that I get to work with brilliant entrepreneurs and stressed out CEO & Executives from all over the world who are truly ready to overcome their stress and anxiety, no longer just learning how to cope.
So, they can really get back to doing what they love and being in love with who they really are. Back into their business and moving forward, be more present & back into loving life and with the people they love. I’m also a mother of 2, and life in the entrepreneurial world is like riding a roller-coaster most days, however, I wouldn’t change a thing.
Can you take us through your journey to where you are now?
After quitting the corporate world and finding myself with an autoimmune crisis it was time for me to take a hard look at myself and what I was creating in my life from not being present. My body took over after I ignored the signs for way too long. Then my relentless journey of rewriting my own self-image and reprogramming myself, I wanted to understand how my mind really works, and why I was recreating the same patterns and behaviours that I knew were just not healthy.
Randomly ( not so random now I look back on it) I met with a psychotherapist, the change was profound it was then that I realised the power of my mind and that I was stuck in fear in what was my family story of “poverty” and “ unworthiness”
I am here to tell you that is 100% not true, you can change that story.. this is where my new journey led me to study clinical hypnotherapy & Behavioural Science and becoming a qualified psychotherapist, and later starting my own training & Waking Up Your Warrior Coaching business.
I teach real & actionable life strategies that have over 50 years of proven success. I want my clients to inspire themselves to soar and create permanent change. Through my coaching, you’ll discover how everything we do is connected to our Self-Image – get access to the real Power needed to unlock the key to Emotional Freedom… and get ‘out’ of conflict, both personally and professionally.
I also bring 20 + years of sales, recruitment and operational management experience to the table with special insights on the critical role of self-limitation in business.
How much research did you do on the market prior to launching your career as a clinical physiotherapist to understand your market?
I could see that there were massive gaps in the industry in getting to the real root cause and showing my clients how their minds really work and that of their employees, this was the key to successful change. Unless you understand the conscious and the power of your unconscious mind and alongside self-image is your emotional coding i.e. low vibrational energy that you are also formed in the first 7 years of life.
The power is in getting to the real root cause, which leads me to be curious as to why people were in therapy for more 3+ years some more than 10 years and why companies were constantly spending money on personal development or sales training course with little to no results after 3- 4 weeks.
I knew that our self-image was the key to my heart lead me to where I am today and creating long term solutions for my clients and not the current band-aid methodology’s, quick fixes, or external motivation this is a very short term game.
Who is the team behind you?
My clients.My clients are my biggest advocates, and my life saver Mike AKA the funnel master.
What is the assessment process like when taking on new clients?
All corporate and private clients go through a pre-consult meeting with me.
Where can you see yourself within the next 5 years?
More growth and expansion stepping into new spaces such as our Waking Up Your Warrior retreats. I love what I do and feel so privileged to work with people all over the world. This work brings me pure happiness. I adore people and helping them transform their lives we all have the power we just need to be shown how.. And retirement is not in my vocabulary.
What outlets do use to promote your coaching programs as an executive coach?
My clients and referrals, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
What gives you ultimate career satisfaction?
Watching my clients truly wake up to their lives, to truly feel the power that they know is inside them under all the fears, opinions and self-judgment. Everyone deserves to live a conscious life of their design.
What challenges have you seen to have been presented during the growth of your career?
Using social media to generate business and understanding the constant changed within the social media applications and staying up to date.
Which other leading entrepreneurs and pioneering game changers do you also admire and why?
Gary Vaynerchuk for his “wake the F up” to your life attitude. His message of living your life now and plan a life you want, not your parents. Kristina Kuzmic for keeping it real for us single and married entrepreneurs who have kids and the reality of what it’s like building empires with small humans.

How do you define your own success?
Success to me is internal. Living life in high vibration it starts with self — 100% self-love & self-validation. Living from your heart, and when you are giving the keys to understanding your self-image and your emotional coding once you get that right, your entire world & bringing changes. You are in alignment with exactly who you are. Success is you by doing you.
What does #BEYOUROWN mean to you?
Be your own love… internal love, there is nothing more powerful than self-love, this is you.
Finally, what are you working on throughout 2019?
Global retreats have been on the drawing board for quite some time and now I’m joining forces with some other brilliant entrepreneurs to bring these retreats to a reality. And to be honest regardless of the year my goal is always to work with more amazing private and corporate clients all around the world, speaking events will be also playing a big part this year.
We have very limited time on this amazing planet and if I can be the catalyst in empowering people to live presently and create long term change, this is what makes my heart excited.
