“The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~Anais Nin
A transformational approach to coaching is ideal for people who want to change something in their life and know that in order to do that they must first look inside themselves.
For some, it’s about becoming more deeply connected in their relationships. For others, it’s about an inner longing to have deeper meaning and purpose in their lives.
It’s an approach that involves a powerful process of opening to the deeper truths of who you’re meant to become.
It helps you move through the discomfort of remaining tight in a bud in order for you to fully thrive in all the important areas in your life.
Ultimately, this transformation involves a shift to a way being that honors who you are at your core and growing into who you’re meant to become, rather than living your life based on your conditioning and limiting beliefs about who you feel you should be.
It’s a great fit for you if you have an inner knowing that the outer circumstances of your life are influenced by your inner world of thoughts, feelings, beliefs, patterns, and ways of being.
In contrast, traditional life coaching focuses on doing things differently in order for you to achieve and accomplish certain goals. This is very effective for surface level shifts such as getting in better shape, embarking on a new career or improving your diet.
A transformational approach, on the other hand, is geared at a deeper level of change that often results in you seeing yourself and others differently.
This deep level of change often leads to a shift in your health, relationships, and sense of purpose.
The transformational process involves 4 main areas:
The Soul’s Journey
The diagram to the right highlights the process of transformation and the shift in a way of being, from living our lives based on our conditioned small self to the higher needs of our soul.
Shedding our small self is not easy, however, as we experience resistance and fear. Our small self wants to keep us safe and in our comfort zones.
It’s fascinating to recognize how the process of transformation among humans is very similar to that which a caterpillar goes through to become what it was meant to be—a butterfly.
We are meant to let go of the things that are holding us back in order to step fully into our higher more authentic selves. For many people experiencing this summons, there is a sense that the old self or way of being needs to fall away to create space for something new that wants/needs to emerge.
When we do this we begin to thrive in our life. Our health, relationships and sense of purpose begin to flourish.

What is the role of your mentor in the transformation process?
Hi, I’m Bev! My role as a mentor and coach is to accompany you through the often-uncertain process of change and transformation.
I share tools and practices in order for you to see things more clearly, shift what needs to shift, and support you with wisdom, compassion, and skill as you step fully into your best self.
I don’t advise, fix, judge, or know what is best for you as your own inner wisdom is meant to guide you. There are times when I’m a teacher, but that is primarily in the context of teaching practices that align with your intentions and needs.
Coaches and mentors are not therapists or counsellors. You are not broken, wounded or dysfunctional. The invitation to awaken is viewed as a natural and healthy invitation from our souls. The process of transformation does involve an element of healing, however, it is not intended to heal past traumas or deep childhood wounding.
Ultimately my role as your mentor is to create a safe container and environment for you to listen to your inner wisdom in order to blossom in your health, relationships and the contributions you make in the world.
