I contacted Liz when life was a bit of a muddle for me…I was on maternity leave from my corporate job with a baby and a toddler but had a niggling feeling like I had somehow lost my way. I struggled to work out what I should do from moment to moment and felt pulled in all sorts of directions.
Liz and I embarked on a few months of chats and deep dives into some blockages I had created and while I don’t think my time with Liz is over, I certainly know what listening to your heart means (I thought it was some hokey pokey thing beforehand!). I am clear now on exactly what I truly value, what I need to stay grounded, how to practice self care and most importantly, what my heart is telling me as I have already found that, when you do, it leads you…well, home. ~ Tammie Miller
The journey to reclaiming ones self is not pretty, its certainly NOT easy and is not for the faint hearted. But it IS do-able. Especially under the guidance of Liz. Her no-nonsense approach, judgment- free practices and unblemished guidance has been EXACTLY the right combination to help me get onto the best path for me and keep me there. The recurring thought is “lightness” when I think about the differences in me now. I know I’m not the only one who has noticed the changes in me and I am able to now look back and understand how I got to where I was. Thanks to Liz I am fully committed to this life-long journey of self-discovery, self-awareness and ultimately true happiness. ~ Tegan
When I signed up to work with Liz I knew I wanted to be more present and embrace what was in front of me, but I didn’t know what was holding me back. I was going in a couple different directions and Liz helped me single in on what really lights me up. One major change in my life since working with Liz, is gaining clarity on the direction I want my business to go. This is so EXCITING!!! I’ve been going down different bunny trails for the past 30 years and that takes my energy away from what’s really important.
Liz also helped me with my relationship with my mom. I’m now listening to myself in the moment more and taking time for self-care which is very important to me. ~ Jessica Kortuem
If I had to put all of my sessions with Liz into one word, it would be CLARITY. And it’s the best kind of clarity because it is coming from within ME, not from ideas given to me by an outside source. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely don’t have all the answers about how I see my future path, but I’ve come to appreciate the journey rather than the destination. I now realise that having someone ask the right (and often tough) questions can help me break down my self-imposed barriers and trust my intuition to guide me towards solutions.
I started with Liz to get some ideas about a career path, but words can’t do justice to how many areas of my life have already changed for the better. The career stuff is evolving organically now, without me trying to force an outcome. My relationships with my kids and husband have improved considerably. I have more of an understanding about myself through core values and desires (I didn’t even know what my values were three months ago!).” ~ Nikki Cosby
Liz, I can’t thank you enough for the clarity session I had with you. I walked in after months of feeling unsure and confused as to what direction to take with my career and I left feeling confident and sure of my next step. Within days of seeing you I committed to my course of study and I haven’t looked back. Without your guidance I wouldn’t have opened my eyes and heart to what I truly want and need from a career. I know wholeheartedly that my new career direction supports everything that I value and love, and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you.” ~ Fiona Rogerson
When I first met with Liz I felt I was splashing around in a sea of ideas and was literally drowning in them. Liz gave me the tools to calm my mind and find out what my true values were. During our coaching sessions I was in complete control, although directed by Liz, to get results from our time together. I was given homework each week, which kept me focused and I actually looked forward to doing this as it felt I was moving toward my goals. Liz gave me the tools to reach within myself and find the answers which were always there. I found the overall experience empowering.
I was able to strip back and stop listening to the noise in my head and really pay attention to what matters to myself and in doing this, I realised that if my choices in life align with my values, balance is achieved. In hindsight it seems simple, however I never would have this clarity if not shown the way by Liz.” ~ Kellie Giannagostino
When I first got in contact with Liz, I was a lost soul and I didn’t know how to get out of my own head to be the woman who I longed to be. I was hugely focused on trying to lose the last 5 kilos. I was so focused on this that I believed if I could achieve this, then everything would be perfect in my life.
The biggest change for me personally during this time of working with Liz, is shifting my way of thinking. Believing in myself and learning that weight does not define me. This was a huge achievement. From removing this from the forefront of my thinking, I was able to look at other aspects of my life and working through these issues gave me clarity of what I needed. Liz gave me the steps to work through this. I was able to see the bigger picture and learn what path I needed to take to feel better about myself.
Thanks so much Liz for teaching me methods of being able to deal with things that I felt were out of my control. Seeing things more clearly now, has opened my mind to be able to work on being awesome in all areas of my life and dealing with issues when they arise in a sensible and logical way. ~ Sara Phillips
Liz, I love what you do, it always speaks to me in one way or another. Everything you write is what I need to hear and read right now in my life. The last few years I started to struggle with living from the heart. I felt like I was swimming upstream while everyone else was swimming downstream. I felt lost. Like I was on the wrong planet. Something strong inside me kept saying no don’t give up on your heart…you won’t be you if you do.
Finding The Connected Life helped me back on the path of living how I truly wanted to. Everything I read rang true for me…made my heart sing and inspired me. You reinforced for me that I indeed didn’t have it wrong to follow my heart. It has given me the tools I always needed but didn’t have. Thank you Liz, I am excited for my future. ~ Anonymous
If you are looking for inspiration for your life, start with Liz. Every time I see her I feel so inspired and in control of my life. Liz has been fantastic in helping me find clarity in a mind so full of ideas it couldn’t focus. She was there to provide guidance and made me look deep deep deep inside myself. There has been a huge change in how I approach not only my business but my life because of her coaching. I’m now able to visualise the bigger picture and my dreams for the future seem attainable. ~ Lisa Marinovich Luxe Addition
More kind words from clients and retreat participants.
“I learned so much from our session and it’s been brewing away in my mind all week. I can’t thank you enough for holding such a constructive space. Thank you again for the amazing work that you do. I’m so thankful that people like you exist and use your gifts to make a difference. That was such a valuable experience for me.”
“Just wanted to say thank you sooooo much for our 1 on 1 session. It has been so helpful and I feel such a shift. I feel a lot calmer at ease and grounded. So grateful for the experience and the tools you gave me.”
“I wanted to share I now understand that to be in my body and be connected with my heart I need to learn to feel all emotions not just the happy positive ones. I understand I need connection to my deeper self again – my heart self. I have realised I give so much energy to everyone else !!! and that I don’t actually giveback to me in the form of “feeling” which would deplete my energy. I can still have self love and feel the shadows and darkness I have realised.”
“Dear Liz, thank you for my first ever meditation class last night. I was so relaxed which is not something I do easily since becoming a parent. Driving home I felt excited that this is something I am looking for and need to make my life better, easier and calmer. You have a wonderful and genuine way and I look forward to attending more sessions. Thank you so much.”
“Somewhere after reading some of your posts, I found a bit of me and some motivation. I made some decisions for me. I feel free and excited about what I can do and what I will do. This is the first time in a long time.”
“Simply wanted to thank you for your uplifting words. Your words always resonate with me and whilst dwelling on them, I feel a serenity and connection to my authentic self. Thank you and bless you.”
