‘Figuring out what is good for you is a Journey of Self-Discovery’ -.- Yolande Hart

Women in Business

‘‘When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid’ -.-
Audre Lorde

My approach is often described by clients as intuitive, insightful and sometimes even spiritual. I believe in bringing all of these concepts together to create practical, workable action steps that will have a genuine impact in your business & life.

There are many factors that contribute to a businesses success, from available cash, positioning, unique IP, sale and scalability, and team culture to name just a few. Recent research shows one of the most influential factors to sustainable business success is a founder’s or business builder’s personal attitudes, motivations, and intentions for being in business.

Performance Coaching

‘A coach is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps you to evolve’ -.- Yolande Hart

The journey of life is the mystery of becoming who we deeply desire our self to be and so the focus of performance coaching creates engagement to get things done. PC aims to increase performance – the output. Your output increases when there’s better input and you improve input through developing awareness, goals, strategy and delivery.

When looking to turn your life and career around, you will hit roadblocks both internally and externally. The internal roadblocks (contraction, constriction, self-doubt, self-sabotage, lack of will, etc.) are the most difficult to navigate so having a coach that will challenge you, and help you challenge yourself and your own blocks becomes paramount to success so that your energy, fulfilment and dreams are achieved.

Performance Coaching helps you to:

  • Improved quality and quantity of work

  • Increased openness to personal learning & development

  • Increased ability to identify solutions to specific issues

Soul-Centred Therapy

‘The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own’ -.- Benjamin Disraeli

Holistic psychology brings an important focus to the counselling process. Many forms of psychology focus just on the thinking mind, but we are far more than the thoughts in our mind. We have an emotional life and a soul life and we live in a physical body. We need to learn how to connect with and manage each of these aspects of our being if we are to experience well being and satisfaction. Holistic psychology takes all of these aspects of our life into consideration.

We work together to evoke authentic, embodied experience that supports connections between mind and body, thoughts and feelings, memories and current life events. We use techniques from energy psychology and body centred psychotherapies to support the processing of memories and past experiences that require attention. This ensures that the process is not overwhelming, and that change and healing occur appropriately for you as a unique individual.

My focus is on YOU as an individual, and my holistic guidance is here to help you approach emotions, thoughts and energies that can have you feeling burdened – like anxiety, guilt, anger, depression, shame and loss. No one technique is universally appropriate and your experiences are unique, so together we focus on using the most appropriate tools for your specific needs. Integrating aspects of yourself that may have been split off and strengthening your relationship with your authentic self is a clear focus. Inner material that emerges through exploring your subconscious can further be honoured through drawings, journaling, or movement. Working within the framework, which focuses on relationship, mindfulness, attention, lived experience, and meaning.

This journey is about you, and I will always be guided by your needs, desires, inner process and the speed at which you want and need to progress. You create your healing – my job is to be your guide, mentor, supporter and fellow traveller.

Live Young

‘Wellness is a connection of paths: knowledge and action’ -.- Joshua Welch

An Anti – Ageing & Weight Loss Program for Women Age 36+

The Live Young program is rooted in Metabolic Hormonal Integration (MHI), a technique developed from the latest medical research to support women of 36 years and onward who are experiencing body, mind and emotional changes due to the onset of hormonal imbalance.

Women, in particular, are often caught in a seesaw cycle of dieting and exercise. Self-management of issues such as weight gain, low energy, mood swings, lack of libido, stress and appearance only seem to get more difficult as we creep into our 40’s.

The good news: This does not have to be your ‘normal’. In fact, you can make ‘now’ the prime years of your life. Being 55 and having transversed through menopause and out the other side I know first-hand the challenges of – night sweats, anxiety, weight gain, sleepless nights and how to overcome these symptoms as you move towards a more healthier and glowing you.

Hart Yoga

‘At any moment you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your heart or further away’ -.- Yolande Hart

Hart Yoga has been designed by myself, which includes a specific focus towards the techniques of yoga i.e. postures (asana), breath (pranayama), and sound (mantras) that work toward a specific outcome (kriya), and doing all of this whilst staying connected to one’s heart thus activating the God-like spirit within us.

The unity of body, mind, heart and spirit that all human beings long for can be most powerfully achieved through the fusion of simple yoga asanas/kriyas and simple spiritual practices, which give access to a profound way of staying awake, passionate, and grounded.

If you like your physical exercise to come with a side of spiritual awakening, Hart Yoga may well be for you. The primary objective (of Hart Yoga) is to awaken the awareness in each individual; that is, recognise our awareness, refine that awareness, and expand that awareness to our unlimited Self & other.

Unlike most ancient religious philosophies, Hart Yoga does not hold onto any strict rules or dogmas. The pure nature of Hart Yoga allows you to find personal meaning in the practice. The objective is decentralised and selfless and helps people actualise their Higher Self. Hart Yoga does not claim to be the way; it is simply a way, one tool on each individual’s journey to personal discovery.

Hart Yoga helps you to:

  • Activates energy centres throughout the body

  • Builds deep body awareness & connection

  • Develops the power of the intuitive mind

  • Profound effects on health and well-being

  • Expands your electromagnetic field

  • Strengthens the nervous system

  • Gives you extra stamina and resilience

  • Deep rejuvenating state of total relaxation

  • Experience of uniting the finite self with the Infinite

  • Connect with acceptance, peace and love

Awakening Meditation

‘If you want to find God, hang out in the space between your thoughts’ -.- Alan Cohen

Meditation is an age-old art-form of deep awareness and enquiry into how we live – behaviours, beliefs, patterns, fears, pleasures that give birth to one self-image. When you give time to deep enquiry one develops a capacity that enables freedom from the illusionary constraints and open you to experience a greater capacity of focus, clarity, self-knowledge, well being, presence and open-heartedness – enlightened way of living.

I personal advocate meditation in the Mahasi tradition – the simultaneous development of mental tranquillity and insight. The mind is calmed with the traditional practice of Anapanasati which includes four steps: observation of the body (kaya), of feeling (vedana), the mind (citta) and the insight into the highest wisdom (dhamma) plus the contemplation of the 32 body parts.

Through this practice three levels of samadhi are distinguished. Khanika samadhi, or momentary concentration, the mind (citta) is only calmed for a short time. Upacara samadhi, approach concentration lasts longer and in Appana samadhi, jhana (absorption) is attained. When sufficient concentration has been established, the three characteristics impermanence, suffering and non-self are contemplated, the five khandha (five groups of clinging – form, sensation, perception, mental formation, consciousness) are seen through then ignorance is extinguished, which can stimulate kundalini awakening.

Awakening Meditation helps you to:

  • Developing a deep awareness of self, other and environment

  • Becoming aware of “synchronicity”

  • A greater sense of inner peace and interconnectedness

  • True happiness, no matter the circumstances in your life

  • A bulletproof sense of inner peace

  • Finding your true self and your true path

  • A permanent higher shift in consciousness & understanding

  • Unconditional love for all living beings
