Values are cornerstone to living a purposeful and fulfilling life. It includes being practical, direct and honest; my joy and well-being come from balance, connection and choosing to live congruently with those values aligned.
My job is listening carefully to your deep inner truth and feelings. Together, we develop a mutual culture of trust. The goal is to inspire you to empower your midlife journey; to stop devaluing potential and limiting self beliefs and live the life you want.
Time to change your story!
My interest in lifestyle coaching and NLP came after my own unravelling. I realized the power of solution-focused coaching during my own unravelling and crisis and was inspired to help other women in challenging times. Dealing with Death and Grief, Separation, Divorce, Co-parenting in Bi-Nuclear families as well as navigating a rigid School System and Mental Health issues in my family, catapulted me into finding solutions and resiliency. Writing and collating a volume of short stories about women’s experiences through midlife trials and tribulations was the natural follow up for me - the book is aptly named Unravelling. Copious study, therapy, reading and courses, moulded my experience as a practitioner.
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 in British Columbia, Canada.
As an ambivert, I swing from quiet moments and introversion to action. I love a good book curled up in front of the fire and also enjoy spending time with family watching dramatic action movies. I'm an avid skier, hiker, yoga practitioner and a spontaneous adventure traveller, cherishing all things beautiful in nature. I struggled at school, since I thought of myself as a poor learner which helps me have compassion for my kids who navigate the School system. Learning no matter how slow and without parameters on abilities, sheds light that there are many ways to achieve success and see the world. Known as a bit of a chatterbox who delights in social occasions, I'm energized by conversations with new and old friends. Since boredom creeps in easily, finding new challenges keeps my world exciting. I'm always fascinated and intrigued by change and my constant learning in this life.

"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"
