the effect of coaching

Transformational Coaching

We can help you transform from stressed, disconnected, even numb, to calm, deliberate and empowered through mindfully led and evocative coaching. we coach deliberate thinking.

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! Transformational coaching can.

What we do 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 to unravel the mystery of yourself, and help you discover your own unique-ness.  That awareness gives you control.

I'm just going to say it at the outset - 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.  Hats off to you my friend, blessings and light to you x

"For the past 6 months I have had the privilege of being coached by Rhonda. As a transformational coach Rhonda does not make decisions for me but instead she enables me to look at my life through a different lens. 

Rhonda allows me to tell my story and then by weaving in curious and challenging questions we get to the real issue. What I really like is that at times she challenges me, and this encourages me to alter my mindset and to approach situations from a deeper place. Sometimes the shift in my mindset is subtle and others it is quite monumental.

Rhonda's coaching has enabled me to change my attitude about myself and my business. I now have the courage to make and even embrace change and to move forward by making choices that serve me well.

I truly look forward to our sessions, her natural humour, authenticity and real connection allows me to be vulnerable.    Thank you Rhonda" - Hazel, coach and business owner, Wellington

"I completed eight mindfulness / communication coaching and mentoring sessions with Rhonda. I found it incredibly beneficial from a personal and professional perspective. It helped me understand my own and other’s feelings / emotions, while developing a toolbox to manage the same. Rhonda was very personable and flexible to adjust the content to meet my needs. I highly recommend" - Mark, banker, Waikato

Coaching Options for You

Is any of this familiar...

Are you:

  • realising the self help books have become more 'shelf help' than 'self help'.
  • living the lives others expect you to have, rather than the one you want. 
  • accepting your state of chronic stress as normal. 
  • being the worst version of yourself inside your most important relationships.  
  • exhausting yourself giving the impression of being perfect.
  • getting in your own way of progress - new year resolutions, yeah nah?
  • feeling disheartened, downtrodden and disappointed for never getting 'it' started.
  • treating yourself unkindly.
  • being unable to cope when the going gets tough.
  • and you know its damaging your performance, creativity, relationships, physical health and mental health. 

...breathe, and be kind to yourself.  You are not alone.  

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

Then perhaps coaching is an option for you

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. 

And that autopilot programme is just the thing - often (actually nearly 50% of our day) we are 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 are 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 its 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.

We use a coach approach to help you unravel the mystery of you, to help you discover your own unique-ness. We unpack, reveal and illuminate beliefs, 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.

The answers are within you!  You'll gain awareness of what a 'mindfully extraordinary life' looks and feels like for you. It starts with an inside out approach: a new appreciation of how much choice you really do have about your experiences in the world PLUS a vision of what life would look and feel like if you were deliberate about living it.  We'll guide you as you create a toolbox of strategies, and practice using those strategies so you start living life on purpose!  And we make this transformation fun, after all your journey is all part of it!  In a comfortable, safe and confidential environment.

Investing in Yourself and Your Future

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.

To gain momentum and lasting change, a minimum of eight sessions is recommended. Sessions are 60mins each, and 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!  It may be four very quick months of your life to invest in YOU!   

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!

Between sessions you'll have full 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.  Sessions can be face to face in Tamahere Hamilton or online (zoom).

Mindful Mum - 10 sessions


Designed for you, if you know there is more to life as mum than feeling the way you do. Specifically for the Supermums and perfectionists who are trying to do it all, be it all, have it all.  

You find yourself yelling at your kids to calm down (we've all done it!), or saying YES when you mean NO then making everyone suffer, or having worse tantrums than your two year old!  You're living the life others expect - or need - you to have, and you've accepted your state of chronic stress as normal. It's exhausting trying to give the impression of being perfect isn't it?

You know you love your kids, yet you're feel resentful, uninspired, lacking in energy and disconnected from your kids, and your own dreams. How many years before they leave home again??? Just thinking about that then makes you feel guilty - nothing worse than Mother's Guilt! 

This follows a set programme of content and exercises to help you practice and get lasting change.

You're READY to become the best possible mum and role model you can be - calm, confident and connected! The secret? It starts with you, not them!

Year of Liberation - 18 sessions


Designed for you if you need to totally transform or up-level all dimensions of your life.  You're looking for more than a few goals or incremental change - you're seeking liberation and transformation.  

Liberation - you're wanting to reset your mindset, free yourself of road blocks and barriers, unleash your potential and get out of autopilot living, into deLIBERATE living!

Transformation - you're wanting to expand your comfort zone, jump start your career, attain goals and improve relationships. Anything else? You need a coach to help you leverage your time, talent and resources to journey this transformation and make the most of every opportunity presented to you in this life. 

You're READY for the rewards that come with taking the game of life to the next level!

 This is 12 x fortnightly sessions for 6 months then 6 x monthly sessions for 6 months. Unlimited email access during the course, and phone call check ins between sessions as necessary. Includes all workbooks, self starter reflection kit and resources.

Loving Your Flow - Monthly


Designed for you, if you need to have some accountability and refreshing reminders.  

Even if you don't think you have anything specific to talk about, having curiosity about how you view and therefore how you experience your life will give you a completely different perspective on what’s going on for you and set you into action.  We are always Works In Progress after all!

A regular coaching session will help keep you accountable to your goals, help identify the small concrete steps you can be taking, and most importantly, help you enjoy the journey.  There's immense value in ensuring you stay on track, or identifying where to have courage to change course. So it's pretty easy, we book the sessions, and the content will be determined by what is happening in your life. We find, design and create your flow. 

You're READY for the rewards that come with always being curious to learn and being surprised about yourself!

Includes unlimited email access, and phone call check-ins as required.  

 Min of 5 monthly x 60 mins sessions.

Calm, Confident & Capable - Executive


Designed for you if you want to improve your effectiveness, productivity and health of your relationships at work.  All of these are determined by how we manage our negative emotions, how we react to those of others, and the habitual behaviours we resort to.  

In Executive Coaching we illuminate the beliefs not serving you, change the relationship you have with your emotions and prepare you for making lasting changes in your work and home life (because you can't be 'great' at work if things aren't 'great' in the rest of your life.  No matter how good you are at performing!) 

Plus, covering mindfulness communication ensures we proceed with compassion and consideration, respond rather than react, which means better outcomes and connections.

You're READY to finally do what it takes to be an authentic, mindful and confident (business) person!

Includes unlimited email access, and phone call check-ins as required.  

Min 8 x fortnightly coaching sessions.
