What are your self-care needs? Where’s your energy being drained? Are you too comfortable and going nowhere – or are you constantly pushing yourself so that “comfort” or “balance” is a passing thought before you throw yourself into the melee again?
We live in a society that loves achievement, qualifications, status and success. Many people work themselves extremely hard to get there – ignoring what their bodies and minds are telling them. But what’s the point of success, a great career – if you’re always stressed, overwhelmed, don’t see much of your family and friends (or are grumpy/tired when you do see them)?
Sadly, life balance and self-care are often seen as “soft” requirements – something high achievers don’t (or shouldn’t) need. We get the message….. we should just be able to soldier on through illness and stress. We’re told that if we take a vacation, go on a break, have a bubble bath or sleep-in on Sundays – all will be well again. After all, a successful person should have this under control and too much self- care is a sign of weakness or perhaps selfish or indulgent.
Well as a nurse and personal development coach, I know this isn’t the case. I know first hand that without self-care and life balance, life can be pretty miserable and lack joy and substance. I also know we will NOT admit to feeling stressed or overwhelmed to our colleagues and our friends. We’re determined to keep up the “superwoman” persona until it begins to chip away at our health.
MASC Coaching Program
Self-Compassion is a personal commitment to intentionally nourish your mind, body and spirit which enables you to show up in the world at your absolute best. MASC™ is your authentic pathway to radical self-compassion.
Are you keeping your self-care promises?
You know, the promises that aren’t kept because we procrastinate until the desire begins to fade away. We continue to tell ourselves that we don’t have enough time or I’ll do it tomorrow. Regardless of what you are telling yourself, you are only depleting your energy reservoir.
“We can’t take care of others from a dry well. We need to take care of ourselves so we can give to others from a place of abundance.”
If you embarked on this intentional journey of self-care then you are ready to move forward. You are ready to reclaim happiness, joy and peace that self-love brings. You are ready to be responsible for you so you can show up as your best self to those around you. This will allow you to better serve others from a place of abundance, love and joy.
- You’re ready to take full responsibility for your MASC
- You want to jumpstart your journey of self-love and self-compassion
- You’re ready to try new behaviors even if they feel foreign to you or stretch you beyond your boundaries
- You honor your commitments to yourself
- You’re willing to share your interest in self development with your family, friends and colleagues
How it works is:
You’ll have a 1:1 30-minute intake session (phone call or Zoom) to get clear on your intentions
Biweekly coaching 45-minute face-to-face, phone call or Zoom video calls

I want to help you be authentic and accountable to yourself. In fact, I believe that keeping your word to yourself is the first step in extreme self-care and achieving your purpose in life.
