Life and Loss Coaching
Is this you?
You are a mother who has experienced great tragedy; yet you are braver and stronger as a result.
You choose to turn your upset into a set-up; you choose to turn your struggles into strengths.
You seek a roadmap for the future.
A future you feel excited by, with meaning and purpose, and that honours the child you lost.
A future you where you feel aligned, calm and have a sense of direction.
A future that is full of joy, hope, love and legacy.
Coaching – is it right for you?
Coaching just might be what you are looking for if…
You feel something stirring inside you. An inkling of an idea that you want to do something different with your life.
Is it a new direction? A renewed sense of hope? A lifting of the fog of grief and a deep desire to do something meaningful?
Whatever is creating that feeling, it’s about being true to who you are and honouring that. Knowing from your own experience that life is precious and oh so short, and this is your time to embrace life and live it fully.
You want to be who you are, and be that person completely. A person who is joyful, optimistic and hopeful for the future, and loves their life.
You know this in your heart and deeply want to be that person again. You know something is missing right now from you truly having the joyous life you desire, and you want to do something to change it.
You want to use your experience of loss and grief to really change your life. You want to leave a legacy to honour the child you lost.
Legacy looks different for all of us, but there are some common threads. You might have a clear idea in your mind of what legacy means to you, or it might just be a mere fragment of a feeling but one you can’t shake. A sense that the transition and loss you have experienced must mean something… it does mean something… you want it to mean something… and it will mean something as you are going to make sure it does.
I believe it is both as simple, and as hard, as finding joy in the current day, having hope that tomorrow will be even better than today, and experiencing love for the life we are living.
How can I help?
Starting to identify what the loss means and how you can honour your child can be challenging to do on your own.
As a life and loss coach, I can support you on your journey through values-based coaching to identify the change you dream of, and make it happen. I will support you to create the life you desire, whether it be a new career that you love, a legacy for your children or a life that you unapologetically love and live fully.
You can transform and evolve your life after loss, and create a life that you love.
“Working with Rowena was enlightening, affirming and confidence-building. If you are seeking a coach to help support you through a major transition or change, or just to help you feel happier and more confident, I would definitely recommend her.”
– Anna, High School Teacher & Mother, Sydney, Australia.
What does coaching entail?
Coaching with me is all actually all about YOU.
During our sessions we examine where you are currently, we look at any issues that are preventing you from living your best life right now, then focus on the future, your values and goals, what you want to achieve and most importantly, how you want to feel.
Throughout this exploration, I support you. Working together we identify where you want to go, how you want to feel and then we work towards that.
A quick note, please be aware that coaching is future-focused. I work with parents on a coaching basis; coaching is not counselling nor psychotherapy.
“When I came to Rowena, I was struggling with finding time for myself, feeling confused about my identity in new roles and lacking career clarity.
After our coaching series, I am moving towards my legacy with intent and purpose.
The coaching sessions really put my life in perspective. The clarity I gained has given me a sense of purpose, not only in the short term but allowed me to align my life where I wanted to leave my legacy on earth. Now I am not afraid of dreaming big; I’m on my way to fulfilling my inner calling.”
– Mona, Business Development Specialist & Mother, Perth, Australia.
What is included?
Both the Joy Coaching Series and the Hope Consult session include a powerful pre-coaching questionnaire to really assist you to think deeply about what you would like.
Prior to our complimentary consultation, I ask you to complete a pre-questionnaire, which asks you to think deeply about what you are missing in life, what excites you and what you would like to achieve. Completing this pre-questionnaire helps you get the most out of our complimentary consultation. The pre-questionnaire also helps us both ensure that if we progress to a coaching series, the sessions meet your needs.

“After working with Rowena, I now allow myself time to indulge in things that make me feel good without guilt. This approach has made me happier, and has led to a more peaceful inner world and happier/healthier relationships. Work wise I have more energy and confidence in my approach.
My husband and friends notice that I am happier, more alive and energetic too after my coaching with Rowena.”

Unsure? Book a Complimentary Consultation
If you are unsure about taking the next step, or what option would best suit you, and would like to chat about whether this is right for you – I understand! It’s a big commitment to engage with a coach.
Therefore, I offer a complimentary 30 minute consultation session via Skype, where we can get to know one another, and get a feel for what it would be like to work together.
What happens next?
After we have had our complimentary consultation, it is up to you to decide whether I am the right coach for you. There is no pressure. We will have spent some time getting to know one another, and you then make the decision whether coaching is what you want to do.
If the answer is no, then there is nothing further required of you.
If the answer is yes, then we schedule your first session.
“Rowena is a warm, caring and positive individual. She is calm, encouraging and supportive. She is one of the best listeners I know! She takes the time to truly understand you.
Rowena is empathetic and provides wonderful insights. She also helps you to challenge your thinking in her own special and gentle way.”
– Rochelle, HR Specialist Consultant & Mother, Sydney, Australia.
