I value a life of joy and well-being that comes from balance and connection.
I listen to my clients' deep inner truth and develop a culture of trust in my practice. I inspire clients to take steps towards taking back their power in their midlife journey.
I became interested in lifestyle coaching and NLP after writing and collating a volume of short stories about women’s experiences through midlife trials and tribulations. I realized the power of solution-focused coaching and was inspired to fulfill a long time calling of encouraging others to be their very best even in challenging times. After a short therapy experience 7 years ago, the therapist said: "I don't normally say this, but you should become a therapist!" At the time I didn't think much of it and was instead slightly flattered. The doors opened to coaching a few years later and the journey unfolded.
I grew up as one of five children in South Africa and in my teens we immigrated to Canada. I live a very active life British Columbia, Canada.
I love a good book and to curl up in front of the fire with family and watch dramatic action movies. I'm an avid skier, hiker, bike-spinner, practice yoga and would hop on a plane at a moment’s notice for an adventure. I really enjoy fashion and cherish all things beautiful in nature. Honestly, I loathed school for academic reasons, but now I love to learn! I'm a chatterbox who delights in social occasions. I have a collaborative spirit and thoroughly enjoy working in teams and forums.

My coaching experience with Camilla has been powerful. At first I was not sure how it could help but was ready to try something new and went in with an open mind. The experience has made a lasting and positive impact on how I conduct my life and approach thought patterns or actions that were impeding my overall happiness. I had 10 sessions with her and am very grateful for the experience and outcome.
I felt a new sense of freedom, excitement and positive energy which I could go forward with to create the next phase of my life. It felt like Camilla was able to unlock a part of me, that I realized, I had the key to all the time, I just didn’t know it. The resources she had at her fingertips were never-ending, no matter what situation came up.
