Liz Witherspoon and Julie Elliott first met in June 2008, on The Artist’s Way course, and realised their mutual passion for supporting people to slow down, reflect and reconnect with who they are. They ran their first retreat in October that year. In January 2017, they asked their coaching colleague, Alison Hurt, to join Simplicity Coaching. She brings with her a unique creative flair and shares their delight for personal development and a desire to enhance wellbeing.
We believe that the value of our work comes from the combined wisdom and interactive participation of the group and that unlimited potential lies within each individual. We also enjoy the challenge of customising a program or workshop to meet a company or individuals’ specific needs. Our love of learning, personal development and compassion for people is the reason we created Simplicity Coaching.
We chose this name because we believe in taking the time to reflect and to simplify our lives by clearing the “clutter” of thoughts, behaviours and distractions that are not aligned to living an authentic, mindful and wholehearted life. By living mindfully we savour each moment to connect with those things and relationships that are important to us.
“Creating Connections” is our investment in this world that urgently requires an accelerated commitment towards contribution and care of ourselves, each other and our fragile planet.
We have learnt that our thoughts are not who we are, that a healthy dose of humour is vital, that staying true to ourselves allows us to live our lives with a certain amount of freedom and grace, and that gratitude for every person in our lives as well as for every situation we encounter helps to give us perspective.
Authenticity, balance, holistic health, service excellence, respect and professionalism,
What we love:
Our families (including pets); cappuccino’s; the sea; a good chat with close friends; dancing; yoga; our work; having fun; pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones; soft warm blankets; getting a massage; playing with paint; music; taking photographs, learning, going on retreats…
