“Emma helped me identify what was important to me and what I wanted out of the next 20 years of my life. After 3 months of coaching I left my employer and moved to a new city in the Okanagan to start a new chapter in my work life. My wife and I are happier than we’ve ever been and I put more time and energy into my family and kids. In short, I was able to organize what I really wanted and not just talk about it like it was some far off unattainable dream. I feel rejuvenated in a way I’ve never felt and am having the time of my life! I would recommend Emma to anyone who is looking for help in focusing on what they want out of their future and their life. It was definitely a worthwhile 6 months! Dreams can come true and Emma helped me start living mine. Signed, a faithful and happier”

“Every once in a while an individual enters our life and touches us in a way that we are never again the same… Emma, you’ve influenced me and inspired me to accept myself and be comfortable enough to just be… These realizations may seem simple but have empowered me to have the life that I want by simply being me! This journey is so exciting, I want to thank you for your insight, wisdom, wit and tools to help me make sense of my life! And through this journey I’ve become friends with myself which has been the greatest gift! So thank-you Emma from the bottom of my heart!!”
– Angela Kailley, Teacher
“I am extremely thankful to know Emma-Louise and strongly recommend her services to anyone looking to get the most out of life they possibly can! She has been a tremendous support both personally and professionally. Her tools are simple, easy to use, and highly effective. What I like most about her coaching and her tools, is that I always walk away with an ‘action plan’ I can implement right away, from which I start seeing results almost immediately. Even though I consider myself already ‘happy’ with my life, working with Emma-Louise inspires me to reach an even greater level of happiness and not settle for anything; she uncovers barriers and desires I didn’t even realize I had. By inspiring the child-like creativity and dreams inside each of us, her methods help one to break free of the ‘daily-grind’ and instead enjoy this ‘adventure called life’ as much as one possibly can!”
