It was a very positive experience for me. Each session was an opportunity to increased my self-awareness. Change has happened and progressed quite naturally, making small steps forward each week. I liked being able to verbalise my concerns to an independent party. [The Coaching] creates momentum for change, validates concerns and affirms action-taking. My self-care is much better too.

I met Miriam whilst participating in her 2-day Health Coaching and NLP training program. During the course I found that I was really interested in perhaps becoming a life coach myself, but couldn't proceed with this until I had sorted out some of my own issues which had been holding me back...how can I help someone when I'm not ok?
In five short one-on-one visits Miriam helped me find new ways of coping with a whole range of difficult emotions and helped me to set some new and exciting life goals.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Miriam to anyone who is needing help and support to overcome any of the barriers to living their best life!

Firstly, I’m now utilising the ‘do not disturb’ sign and strategically finding the opportunities to get important tasks done. I’ve improved delegation to administrative staff, and feel far more enthused about this job! I’m right on top of reports, tasks and future planning. The coaching program has kept thinking on track, and the accountability of writing things down and reflecting on the changes regularly has been so valuable. I’m really noticing the benefits in reduced stress levels, and improved management team functioning, which has flowed on to better staff morale. I’m being proactive, rather than reactive which is what I really wanted to achieve through the program. How far I’ve come!

The main areas/goals Miriam and I worked on included the big one – SELF LOVE, connecting my conscious and unconscious mind, trusting my intuition and exploring mind-body connection. I had seen a few life coaches pop up over the years and had been intrigued to see what they could offer. I felt I needed a bit of guidance to rediscover me as I had identified that I was not living the life I was meant to live. I also sought clarity on why I felt so disconnected. At first I found it hard to trust the process and scrutinised poor Miriam but as the process progressed my resistance to the experience decreased. I now am someone with a strong sense of self, who I can proudly say I love to be. I have accepted my spirituality and have seen great improvements to my physical and mental health which has been a bonus! The need for self nourishment is now a part of my daily routine and I simply trust in the process of life. Miriam provided great insight in to humanity (loved those chats!) and I now have a greater sense of where I fit in to the world. I learnt that you really can heal yourself (as cosmic as that sounds) and that working at the unconscious level really works! We are the way we are because of how we have previously dealt with our emotion of which is something that can be changed, quite quickly too. I have absolutely recommended Miriam to others as I hope more people get to benefit from her truly unique ability to get you to see who you are meant to be – what more could you want!

After going through a particularly difficult personal period, I was feeling very confused, unmotivated and unable to see a clear direction for my life. I could feel this negatively affecting all aspects of my life and I realised I needed some assistance. This was when I decided try life coaching (something I had never done before) and I contacted Miriam. With her warm, professional approach, Miriam immediately made me feel very comfortable. I felt a huge sense of relief after just one session. Over the course of a few subsequent sessions, Miriam helped me clarify my aims and goals and identify what it was that was holding me back. The experience of life coaching with Miriam has been incredibly empowering. It has restored my passion for life and has helped me find the security, freedom and confidence to strive for those big goals and enjoy all that life has to offer. I sincerely recommend Miriam Henke’s coaching psychology to anyone who wants to get the most out of life!

I met Miriam at A NLP taster. I had been on a journey for a number of years trying to better manage workplace stress and unsuccessful relationships. After my first session with Miriam I was amazed at the triggers from my childhood and teenage years that had skewed my view of my life and what was happening around me. This wonder and amazement continued for many weeks as everything began to fall into place. I have learnt new ways of managing how I feel and setting boundaries so I can manage other people’s issues, behaviours and opinions so they do not directly impact on me anymore. I am so excited about what the future holds and enjoy watching what is happening around me with insight and wonder. Miriam made me feel so comfortable supporting me to see that how I feel is my choice and I can learn how to change how I feel, what I do and how I interact with others. I am looking forward to NLP Practitioner training and continuing to learn more about me, my emotions and understanding what other people say and do really means.
