As a guide at your side, i'm here to be the wind beneath your wings

As a client-centred coach, I gently and lovingly guide my clients on a personal journey

of self-reflection, discovery, and healing. I empower them to adopt holistic lifestyle practices

—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually—

that support them in living longer, happier, healthier lives. My deeply empathic intuition,

combined with my lifelong passion for natural and sustainable living, has fuelled my purpose-driven career

coaching hundreds of clients from over 130 countries.

I offer individual, couples, family, and group coaching and mentoring, as well as customised seminars, workshops, retreats,

health and wellness education and training, worksite lunch-and-learn sessions,

worksite wellness program design and consultation, and inspirational speaking engagements.

Clients' Feedback

The workshop was truly beautiful.

Your skilled and passionate facilitation allowed me personally to reflect on the changes that I can make. Your warmth and ability to hold, nurture and address differences within the group was both rich and inspiring. I felt that you cared deeply for all participants with and incredible ability to adapt to the individuality of each one of us.

I would describe the workshop as a ‘light bulb moment’.

I left feeling deeply enriched with an inner calmness that has stayed within me. I also loved the way you included a wide range of ancestral indigenous wisdom, allowing me the opportunity to reflect on their strengths to navigate difficult times, to keep dreaming and the important value of contribution.

Dena is a very knowledgeable and skilled coach

who creates an open, heartfelt and confidential learning space.

The course helped me reflect on what brought me to this point in my life and question which path I want to follow in the future.

- Workshop Attendee

Dena was great in so many ways.

She's not only inspirational but she also gives

you transformational inputs. I loved being mentored by her;

she knows exactly how to create a safe space,

and make everybody feel comfortable and open up.

She knows how to interact with all the different personalities that take part in a group and she naturally gives you a nudge to interact and make yourself present. I hope she'll have the chance to inspire others as well and help them start the ripple effect of making this world a better place by aligning with what they love to do.
