I found Marie’s well-being workshop very informative and also inspiring.

I have been a business owner and a single parent for many years now and I am always juggling work and family, and everything else going on!

It’s very common for women to ignore their own needs when providing so much to those around them.

Marie’s workshop was a good reminder that we need to nourish and nurture ourselves in order to thrive and be available to those who rely on us.

I loved how Marie’s personal journey led her to the work she does now.  Her passion is awesome!

Marie was a wonderful guest speaker at our Designing Your 2024 Roadmap Workshop for Women in Business. Her ability to engage the audience with her personal journey, transitioning from a high-pressure global corporate role to finding her true calling as a certified wellbeing practitioner, was impressive. She effortlessly drew us in, sharing practical, actionable advice and wellbeing techniques that we could all immediately apply to better navigate stress in our lives.

Marie’s excellent presentation and actionable strategies will undoubtedly continue to inspire positive changes in all of our wellbeing journeys. We are immensely grateful for the invaluable knowledge and practices she shared. We look forward to working with her again.

Marie recently spoke at our We Rise Networking event. She spoke all about well-being and the importance of self-care as an entrepreneur. She left everyone with a number of fantastic strategies and tools to manage our overwhelm and stress. As well as many ways in which we can fit in self-care in our busy lives. Marie was absolutely amazing and definitely showed her expertise and knowledge in this area. She was very relatable, created a beautiful vibe and energy in the room and her whole presentation was easy to understand.  Everyone had only positive feedback.

Working with Marie was one of the best things I have done for myself. Her sessions were insightful, enlightening and empowering. Before meeting Marie, I thought I was a pretty self-aware person, but the inner strengths, resources and blind spots Marie was able to unearth in me were truly life changing. After completing the Gallup Strengths assessment, Marie carefully and empathetically took me on a journey of self-discovery which has helped me to understand so much more about myself and how I can leverage these strengths to reach my fullest potential. Marie has such a gentle, calming and beautiful nature, she is an amazing listener and really sees and hears you as an individual. I have also completed a meditation session and wellbeing assessment with Marie, both of which were highly valuable sessions that provided me with practical tools and strategies to use when life gets overwhelming or to ensure I maintain a good sense of wellbeing. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Marie to anyone I know. She is a remarkable person, with a gift for enriching people’s lives.

I would recommend Co-Active Life Design to others and quite frankly, the answer to why is: Marie. I have had the privilege of being coached by a number of different people and what sets her apart is her adaptability and well-balance approach. More specifically, the Co-Active Life Design Leadership programme assisted in bringing a new level of thinking to my strengths, values and emotional intelligence skills. In doing so, I gained a structure from which to approach challenges and opportunities. Marie helped me weave strengths, values and skills into all my goals in a way that made them far more tangible.

Co-Active Life Design helped me tremendously on the journey to master myself, and that is true empowerment. If you are looking for someone to tell you what to do, this is not for you. Co-Active Life Design is here to help you reach your potential and give you the tools to decide where you need to be and how to get there.

Try it. It is likely you will be surprised where it takes you. I most definitely did not expect the way in which this positively impacted my professional as well as personal life.

I have had the privilege of meeting Marie in our Accredited Coach Training Program and subsequently inviting her to be one of our Associates and Contract Facilitators.  Marie has a deeply supportive approach when training and creates a safe space for participants to be vulnerable and curious about other ways of being beyond their current ways of thinking.   Her passion to help people move beyond trauma to be the best version of themselves makes her an asset to both individuals she works with and corporate groups.  I highly recommend if you are thinking about supporting you or your team’s mental health you discuss with Marie how she can enhance resilience and wellbeing.
