Life Coaching

Are you ready to become the best
version of yourself?

Let’s take the first step towards your goals.

Don’t just live your life. Love it

My goal is to help you turn your life around.

Sound like a lofty ambition? It’s really quite simple.

With a life coach in your corner you will learn the skills to move forward, understand the self-limiting beliefs you may have, and re-adjust your mindset to become successful.

This is done by empowering you to make, meet and exceed your personal and professional goals.

Whether you need to make changes to your personal or professional life, I provide practical steps and advice to help you put those changes into action.

My innovative life coaching program will help you to view your life from a different perspective and give you the confidence to make positive changes.

As your life coach, I am as invested in your success as you are.

Working in sync, we will empower you to set your own goals, and work out the steps you need to take in order to achieve them.

As you strive toward your goals, I will guide and advise you every step of the way.

Are you ready to be successful in your endeavours?

Now is the perfect time to get started.

Does life coaching work?

Just as athletes use coaches to maximise their potential and find success, everyone can benefit from a personal life coach in their corner.

Do you feel as though you could be achieving more? That you are missing opportunities for personal and professional success? That you are one puzzle piece away from completing your vision?

These are clear signs that a life coach can serve an important role in improving your life.

Whether you need someone to help you kickstart your career, or someone to help you achieve personal goals (i.e. weight loss, study, etc.), it’s important to find a coach who specialises in these areas.

A life coach’s job is to lead you in the right direction.

However, the ultimate success of the partnership depends on your commitment.

This means you must be willing to act on the advice provided and work with your coach to achieve your goals.

If you’re ready to put in the work, then life coaching will work.

and professional growth?


Helps with: Anxiety, bereavement, grief, loss, bullying, mental health, relationships, trauma, stress.

Counselling falls under the umbrella term of ‘talking therapies’.

Counselling gives people the opportunity to talk openly about their challenges and feelings, while being heard and understood. Counselling tends to be short-term and I tend to use solution-focused, existential and person-centred short-term methods. Counselling aims to help you live a more productive life in your own way.

If you are looking to make a positive change in your life, or would like to explore and understand your feelings in more depth, please explore my counselling services further.


Helps with: Mental health, wellness goals, fear and insecurities, stress, relationships, destructive habits, childhood trauma, grief, loss, anxiety and depression.

Psychotherapy is a collection of therapies designed to help you with the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are affecting you. I am trained in integrative, existential and humanistic psychotherapies. This means I work with you wherever your headspace is.

Psychotherapy is more long-term work and gives you the necessary skills to cope with challenges in a healthy and empowering way.

Business and Executive Coaching

Helps with: Productivity, motivation, leadership skills, performance, staff morale, communication, marketing, goal setting.

Business and executive coaching are two methods with the same goal – to solve business related issues and help clients get more from their business.

While business coaching has a focus on the metrics of success for a business: strategy, market needs, organisation and so on; executive coaching deals with personal growth.

Blended together these skills offer dynamic and multi-dimensional approaches, ideal for businesses looking to stabilise or grow.

I have extensive experience working with small businesses and professional practitioners to improve their mindsets, and as a result, increase their profits.

Can life coaching help me?

In today’s hectic world, we face so many demands, both personally and professionally.

Do you feel as though you are so busy with work and family that you have no time for yourself?

If so, a life coach can help you find time each day to take care of yourself.

I will do this by working with you to create a daily routine. This routine is designed to ensure you make the most of every day.

I will help you manage your time effectively, so you have plenty of time to work, exercise, be with your family, achieve your other goals, and most importantly, find space in your day with no interruption.

During this time, you can refocus, meditate, exercise, or just relax – making you a much more effective worker, parent, partner and friend.

I understand that life is filled with circumstances and responsibilities that you cannot control.

Whether you feel overrun with family responsibilities or a hectic work schedule, I can help you create a mindset of “when I have five free minutes, this is how I’m going to spend them.”

From little things, big things grow.

Together we’ll grow your success.

Why choose me?

Do you feel as though your life lacks purpose? Do you feel you have no direction for your life? Or are you trapped in an emotional rut, due to self-limiting behaviours, and aren’t making progress?

If so, you can overcome these challenges and realise your true potential.

If you’ve tried unsuccessfully to overcome these challenges, I can help you identify these self-sabotaging behaviours and arm you with techniques and skills to overcome them once and for all.

Life coaching is essentially a mentoring relationship, designed to ensure you discover your full potential and reach all of your goals, even those you may have given up on.

Through this supportive relationship, you will identify and take practical steps to achieve your goals.

This will result in you making drastic, positive changes in your personal and professional life.

By partnering with me, you will learn how to design and implement practical strategies to get where you want to be in the most effective, efficient and rewarding way possible.

Not only that, but as your life coach I am also a dedicated support system and accountability partner.

What can life coaching help with?

Can life coaching help with depression?

Many people who suffer from depression are stuck in a pattern of self-limiting behaviours. These negative behaviours prevent a fully enjoyable life and stand in the path of achieving goals.

If you suffer from depression, a life coach could possibly equip you with the tools and strategies to overcome these self-sabotaging behaviours. With my combination of therapeutic and coaching skills, she can assist you with life coaching, no matter what your life issue may be.

I can also help you rediscover your zest for life, show you how to improve your personal relationships, rekindle your drive to achieve your goals, and get you excited about every day.

Some people who seek life coaching, may also need approval from their health professional if there is a pre-existing mental illness. If that’s you, please check with your treating doctor, before proceeding with life coaching.

Can life coaching help with anxiety?

If you are anxious, trying to achieve even the smallest of goals can seem almost impossible.

This is because you may be so worried about not doing the right things, that you stop yourself from even thinking of reaching your goals.

A life coach can help you discover why you feel anxious about moving forward in your life, and give you advice on taking small steps to work towards your ambitions.

I can show you how your life and general outlook will dramatically improve once your ambitions are realised. This will empower you to succeed during every step of your journey.

With a life coach, you have a partner who is just as invested in your success as you are.

Who will benefit from life coaching?

People from all backgrounds and walks of life can reap immense benefits from partnering with a life coach.

Life coaches are especially helpful for kids, teenagers and young people, people interested in self-improvement, athletes, mothers, couples, seniors and entrepreneurs.

"I hired Renee McDonald as my business coach and I can highly recommend her. She gave me the clarity, focus and contacts I needed to take my practice to a level I wanted. She basically gave me the courage and confidence to build a practice that suits me next to the contacts needed. I'm still in my early days but Renee showed me the way and it's working".
