My Story

Are you seriously committed to creating a major change in your life? Is life coaching for you?

My journey to Holistic Directions probably involves lots of things in common with you. Things don’t just happen overnight and I went through a lot of challenges to get to the place I am now – and it was worth it.

Without a college certificate or university degree I had to work harder than my peers to prove my abilities, gain credibility and receive the promotions I wanted in my career. I also had to learn additional soft skills on my own to survive in a highly competitive corporate world. I wanted to know what ‘the difference that made the difference’ in the people that were more successful than their
peers who had similar qualifications, talents and abilities.

Being a shy person I wanted to learn skills to manage any social situation, to carry on a conversation without stumbling on my words, and to enjoy meeting new people instead of being scared and nervous.

I invested $1000’s in many self-help books and audio cassettes and took several personal development courses. I learned tools that with training and practice I began to overcome many of my personal and work challenges. I felt more self-assured and started doing presentations at work.

And I took the initiative to approach people I didn’t know at social events. Yet I still didn’t feel I had the level of confidence I really wanted… something was missing.

It was about that time that I was invited to attend a conference in England. One of the extra options to attend was a seminar introducing Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) – the title alone was enough to tickle my curiosity and I readily signed up.

That was the beginning of a wonderful journey of self discovery, learning and personal development at a level that I had never experienced at any time in my life .. and now I am fortunate to have personally assisted on many NLP Coaching and Training Trainers courses with John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St Clair and Michael Carroll (UK) and that started to completely change my life.

As a result, I decided to start my own business as an NLP Trainer and Coach and I continue to learn about myself and discover how to apply NLP to improve my own life every day since.

“I’m so glad I connected with Jacquie as my business coach. She is so easy to speak with! Sessions started solely about business but we quickly dug out what were the main causes for being stuck and stagnating in work. Jacquie provided me with tools and set up some challenges for me that got me going in the direction I wanted with my work. It was one awesome experience!”

"As my coach, Jacquie helped me resolve very important problems related to my inner state and confidence. Jacquie helped me by finding and resolving some very deep inner conflicts affecting my state and my business in a negative way. As a result of my work with Jacquie I have created and successfully delivered two excellent business workshops for a large group of business leaders in Europe. And even more! After the workshops the same leaders engaged me for a six-month online training program for their teams and two more live workshops before end of the year. It means that I will double my income this year!"

One cannot have enough tools in the tool kit!Jacquie is a passionate coach and her knowledge and understanding and mastery of NLP becomes very obvious in the way that she teaches her students.
