Authenticity | Clarity | Momentum
Authenticity, Clarity and Momentum represent pillars in exploring and developing the whole human being: professionally and personally; emotionally, physically and spiritually; at work and home, at play and at rest. The pillars apply at micro and macro levels and to individuals, teams, departments and organizations.
Coaching starts with the pause we seldom take. This is your consistent, dedicated and confidential space, where you stop everything to slow down, to think again and to think differently. You leave any whirlwinds outside the door. We partner to dream, reflect and learn, plan and act. It's making space to do really important work on what you really want, really don't want, what's getting in your way, and designing and taking steps forward.
Showing up, evolving and living into our true self. Although we may stumble along the way, we strive to be clear on who we are and to keep learning and growing into our authentic best selves.
Being crystal clear and keeping front of mind our unique authenticity and clarity on what we really, really want to achieve. Authenticity and Clarity can be so strongly foundational. It can take time to establish this. Go slow to go better.
From a place of strong authenticity and clarity, we identify and deeply commit to the right goals. These give us traction as we enter a state of flow, generating momentum: a more easeful, effective and efficient state of forward progress.
Individual, Team & Group Coaching
Together we develop a bespoke coaching package. An exploration call confirms fit, form and function: What’s your single biggest challenge or frustration that you’re running into right now? What is this costing you? What is the ideal? How to move the needle and take action to gain momentum? And what coaching could look like in support of this?
We typically engage for 9 to 12 months, meeting for 60 minutes twice a month. Sessions are primarily online, and can be arranged in person for group situations. (I am grateful to be able to coach online and internationally, where timing and time zones allow.)

What graduates of my program are saying
I am more in tune with my internalized emotions and feelings. The 7-week program helped me learn a lot about how specifically my brain works and how I can use that understanding to better myself in terms of greater focus, mental health and overall happiness. The techniques that I learned have become a habit in my daily life and I use them whenever I feel overwhelmed, anxious or just need a moment to ground myself. ~JK, world class Tai Kwan Do champion
The program is both formulaic and organic. It gives a good perspective and toolset for understanding and working with – in broad sense – a lot of the negative emotions that come up. It’s especially good for managing day-to-day stressors, wrangling negative thoughts and feelings versus letting them run amuck. Top two things of value for me?
PQ and the app provide something regular to help ground me on an ongoing basis.
The training gives a new perspective as a tool for how to think about my emotions.
~HJ, Physics student
This program experience and Toni as my PQ coach has truly transformed the way I think. Knowing she’s on a similar journey and practices Mental Fitness herself was important to me. Her PQ expertise and coaching alongside the program helped accelerate my understanding to go beyond what I thought was possible. My family can testify and results in my work and personal life are huge. The time commitment was very do-able and return on investment was phenomenal value as outcomes are so impactful! ~DN, CEO & Entrepreneur

Coaching is a great expedition, not for the faint of heart or uncommitted. This is not a conversation, meeting; nor is it therapy, counselling, mentoring, consulting or training. It is one of the best investments you can make in your life and future.
Progress is easier with a professional coach walking with you, exploring outside comfort zones and disrupting your status quo (which can only be done from the outside). Your coach brings all that they are from experience and continuous learning. Your coach partners with you and is open and non-judgemental, co-creating safe and confidential space and time. Together, we'll challenge and stimulate you to be authentic, gain clarity and generate momentum.
Know that coaching takes commitment and openness to self-compassion. It takes strong desire to learn, to grow. Are you willing transform who you are and how and what you do? The person that evolves with the help of coaching is not entirely the same person as when they started.
You will hold yourself accountable to being fully present in the sessions and to the actions you design towards achieving your goals. Step by step.
It also helps to keep a sense of fun, humour, gratitude and wonder and to not take yourself too seriously.
Successful coaching comes through realizing that it starts with you. You are the expert in you and your life and work. You are fully capable. You have inner strengths and brilliance as yet untapped. And it takes self-awareness, valuing yourself and your development and knowing you deserve this.
Think about: What really matters? What are the possibilities? What might I regret not doing in a year? How is that costing me and others? What seems impossible that might be possible? What would be different? How might an objective, non-judgemental and professionally experienced coach partner help you?
