Are you wanting to have a better human experience?

You're arrived on the right page - I help you learn to lead yourself for a better human experience

Coaching is a very personal, albeit incredibly powerful, journey.  It's an investment in YOU.  It takes time, money and effort.  That you've come this far needs to be acknowledged - whether you hang in this site or connect somewhere else - I congratulate you for valuing your life enough to make this investment, to make your life the one you never want to trade.  

No one is immune to the rough stuff, to difficulties and hardship.  Everyone is perfectly 'imperfect'.  And we all want the same things in life - to be loved, to have a sense of belonging, purpose, safety, connection... 

I help you transform from stressed, disconnected, even numb, to calm, deliberate and empowered through mindfully led and evocative coaching. My coaching is evocative because it expands your mind to gain awareness on how you are perceiving and therefore experiencing your reality – that’s illuminating  the perceptions, feelings and values that sit lurking under the surface of your behaviours and choices. 

We assist you build clarity as you unravel the mystery of yourself.  That awareness gives you control and the ability to have choice and make change.

Because as the saying goes - pain is inevitable, suffering is a choice.  And that's why I coach.  To help you help yourself with your choices, so you become the YOU you'd like to be!

Let's be honest, does any of this sound familiar?

Are you Hitting Snooze, dragging yourself out of bed, dreading the day, lacking enthusiasm because you can't bear to hear all your staff's issues (you have enough of your own, right!)?

Are you spending time in The Depths of Despair – as you realised time is passing you by and you’re not living the life, or being the person, you wanted to be?

Have you become a Perfecting People Pleaser? Marching to the beat of others' expectations in your ear and becoming more and more resentful...?

Are you filling that Big Pot Hole In Your Life with unhealthy habits and behaviours. Retail therapy? A regular extra bottle of wine? Unhealthy eating habits?

Are you the Worst Version of You inside your most important relationships - snappy at your dog, yelling at the kids, snippy at work. Then beating yourself up for it? 

Do you carry a Sense of Imposter Syndrome - "I've got this great job but I have no idea what I'm doing, they'll find me out soon enough"!?

Have you had that Regrettable Moment – you’ve overreacted, apologised profusely, hoping you’ll keep your job, your marriage, or a place at the Christmas table?

Are you convinced there's got to be Something Larger And More Lasting to be working on, but you just can’t pinpoint what that something is?

That's ok, you're not alone and I can help

When ‘life happens’ we can resort to retail therapy, giving up, or a 10am martini. But shoving it down, sideways or to someone else doesn’t help!

Any of these scenarios means you're being robbed of joy, connection, your dreams, that the extraordinary life you deserve is instead rather average and ho-hum. And you're damaging your relationships, productivity, creativity, and health on a daily basis.

Please don't be alarmed, you're not alone. Take heart - life like this can be transformed. And this is why I do what I do.  

If you're wanting to start a new chapter (volume?) of your life, or wanting to partner with someone as you navigate your work, relationships and curve balls ... I can support you. 

I help you learn how to check yourself before you wreck yourself!

No BS and no One Size Fits All.

Just IMAGINE if.... your life looked and felt like THIS:

... the life you'd like to have and the person you'd like to be!!??

STEPS to Setting Yourself Up for Coaching

Step #1 - Work Out If Coaching Can Help YOU

Step #2 - Learn What Coaching is Really

Step #3 - Decide If I'm the Right Coach for You

Step #4 - Pick up the Phone or Email

Step #5 - Decide on the Coaching Programme

Step #1 - When Is Coaching Going to Help You?

Here's a fun fact - nearly 50% of our day) we're operating in default autopilot mode.  Which is a great thing on one hand - because while we're busy sorting kids, logistics, report deadlines and a social life, we've also got 600 trillion cells doing exactly what they should be, when they should be.  We're incredible, all of us.

But then there's the unhelpful default mode - habits, patterns, beliefs and thoughts that fly under the radar, until, well, we wake up and just know it's time for some clarity and reorganising and unleashing.  Time for some deliberate thinking.  You know you have to make something shift because there's more to your life than 'this'. You deserve more than this. And you know that the cost to your happiness and health  of doing nothing will be catastrophic.

THAT is when coaching is going to help you!

Want to get more specific? If any of these feelings resonate for you, coaching can help!


  • accepting your state of chronic stress and overwhelm as normal?
  • having no time or energy for what really matters?
  • can't get out of bed in the morning?
  • being taken advantage of at work or home?
  • exhausting yourself giving the impression of being perfect?
  • overwhelmed with dread about taking the next step?
  • being unable to cope when the going gets tough?


  • simply that: feeling sad and lost, and you can't put your finger on why?
  • feeling lonely and no one understand you?
  • everything should be 'fine' but it just isn't!


There are a bunch of 'cognitive distortions' that we all default to in varying degrees.  Our brain is wired for survival not for happiness, and cognitive distortions are trying to protect us -

they’re fast tracked coping mechanisms which are really sensitive to threat.

Using cognitive based therapy (CBT) coaching can help you if you find yourself:
  • defaulting to 'all or nothing' thinking
  • magnetising the negative, discounting the positive
  • catastrophising the worst case scenario
  • taking everything personally
  • getting upset that others don't do what you think they should
  • jumping to conclusions about the future - a but like fortune telling :)
  • mind reading - making assumptions about what someone thinks about you
  • constantly blaming others or 'needing' to be right all the time
  • overgeneralising

By learning to correctly identify this kind of “stinkin’ thinkin’,” we can then answer the negative thinking back, and refute it. By refuting the negative thinking over and over again, it will slowly diminish overtime and be automatically replaced by more rational, balanced thinking. That's what coaching and CBT do.

If any of the above is familiar...

...breathe, and be kind to yourself.  You're not alone.  

Plus, you've done the hard bit, by taking the first step towards transformation. You've got this!

Coaching may be a game-changing - life changing - option for you!

Time to learn more about what coaching really is...

STEP # 2 - What is Coaching? Really?

- John Wooden

Coaching helps you gain

A - Awareness of why you think and feel the way you do 

B - Belief in yourself that you can do something about it

C - Clarity about what needs your attention and energy

D - Direction and purpose for making changes and impact

You will have the answers inside you (trust me!). Perhaps they cannot be revealed at the moment, blocked by self limiting beliefs, thoughts and a habit of running on autopilot. 

We use a coach approach to help you unravel the mystery of you, to help you discover your own unique-ness. We unpack and illuminate beliefs, patterns, thoughts and habitual behaviours not serving you. We'll help guide you to draw an extraordinary map of where you want to go, learn a new way to travel, bridge the gap between your real life and your ideal life and help you discover who your 'best possible self' really is. It's an inside out approach.

As a coach I'm also fiercely passionate about holding you accountable - coaching is a 'done with you' not 'done for you' approach!  And depending on your choice of package, between sessions you'll also have email support, weekly check-ins to keep you on track and, where necessary, you'll be provided with a handbook, workbook and a journal so you'll always have resources to refer back to.  

Plus, naturally, we make this transformational journey fun!  In a comfortable, safe and confidential environment.

Sessions can be face to face in Tamahere Hamilton or online (zoom). Sessions are normally 60mins each and to gain momentum and lasting change, preferably a fortnight apart.  Any shorter and you may lose the opportunity to 'practice and embed'; any longer and you may lose momentum, or life busy-ness may just get in the way!  

Eight sessions for example may just be four very quick months of your life to invest in YOU!   

Step #3 - How I've Helped Others ability to bring insight to the conversation, highlighting connections and possibilities that had passed me by, really opened doors for me

...I'm more resilient and more adaptable to a changing work environment. I'm less stressed, more productive, and feel like I'm making a positive impact in the workplace

... Rhonda challenges me, and this encourages me to alter my mindset and to approach situations from a deeper place

... (I have) grown as an individual, can manage difficult situations and focus on the bigger picture.

... (I can) navigate complex and sometimes uncomfortable conversations

...acute listening skills to really hear what is going on for someone, and an intelligent yet down-to-earth summation

...professional and innate skills to help people correct the difficulties we all share in understanding ourselves, trusting others, communicating successfully, honouring our potential and feeling authentic and confident.

STEP #4 - Having a FREE Chat with Me


Regardless of the coaching package you choose, our first meet-up is no obligation and FREE. In this 30 minutes we discuss your needs, your intentions, your definition of success. You may be looking for a goal-mastering option. Or for some delicious, gentle pathways and strategies to enhance your perception and response to your life. Or wanting to crush the blockages, challenges and beliefs that have stood in your way in the past, transform and liberate yourself to be your best possible self, living the live you'd never want to trade!  So exciting! We can totally cater for this.  

In this first connection we work together to identify how far we're going to go with the 'unravelling' of layers and mystery of you to bridge the gap between your intentions and your reality.  AND it's important you feel comfortable with your coach and the investment you are making. Before you make it. That's why the first consultation is FREE.

If, after your first free meeting, you wish to continue with Our Minds Matter, you'll choose one of the coaching options, see below. What you choose will depend very much on what you are wanting to achieve, and that's what we can work out together in our freebie chat!
