I value a life of being practical, direct and honest; my joy and well-being comes from balance and connection and choosing to live congruently.
I have learned to listen carefully to my clients' deep inner truths and feelings, and together, we develop a mutual culture of trust. My goal is to inspire clients to empower their midlife journey; to stop devaluing potential and limiting self beliefs.
Time to change your story!
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. My book was aptly named 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.
I grew up as one of five children in South Africa and in my teens we immigrated to Canada. I choose to live a very active life in 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, practice yoga and would hop on a plane at a moment’s notice for an adventure. I cherish all things beautiful in nature. I loathed school for academic reasons, since I thought of myself as a slow processor, now I love to learn no matter how slow I am and I don't put parameters on my abilities! I'm a chatterbox who delights in social occasions and I am energized by conversations with new and old friends. I get bored easily and find new challenges keep my world exciting. I am always fascinated 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"
