About Me

Hi, I'm Bridie
Your Growth Facilitator & Life Coach based in Nelson, New Zealand.

My mission: To live a life of joyful connection with myself and others, through creativity, presence, adventure and growth. 

How did I end up here?

At 26 I had just got out of a long term relationship, was working my ass off for promotions and pay increases, and was experiencing high levels of anxiety and burnout.

I was always so busy and tired. On the outside my life looked great. But on the inside I felt like the light had been dimmed. Motivation was low and I struggled to make decisions as I didn’t really know what I wanted.

My body started to rebel.  I developed digestive issues, back pain & increased feelings of anxiety.  I didn’t realised how high my stress levels had become.

It was then that I promised myself that I would do anything to help heal my body and my mind. 
I applied a simple formula and achieved incredible clarity around Who I was, What I really wanted and WHY it was important to me. I discovered a purpose and passion that excited me so much more than anything I had done.

Do negative unhelpful thoughts still try to pop up? Of course – this is part of being human. But now I have a powerful framework to get me back on track and aligned with what is important. These tools changed my life so immensely and they can help you too.
I have created a powerful coaching package and partner with women, just like you,  so they too can gain clarity, calm, purpose and direction.

Feeling nosey and want to know more? Here's the goss

1. I’m an energiser bunny. I love being active and will pretty much give anything a go. Volleyball, squash, wakeboarding, kayaking…I’m in!

2. I love an adventure and have travelled around 50+ countries. Solo travel, trips with mates and weekend getaways get me excited.

3. I stayed in an unfulfilling relationship for 8 years… I tell you this as I know that change can feel scary. I stayed for many reasons, but finally built up the courage to leave. I no longer felt like myself. My spark had gone. And with marriage etc on the cards, I had to get out.

4. After 6 years living overseas, I returned home to NZ and met someone incredible 4 days later. This man was everything I had manifested. I began to open up, trust, and let go of expectations and worry. And in Jan 2024…we had the most incredible time with family and friends celebrating our marriage!

5. Personality type: …ENFP (Campaigner). What are you?

6. I have a Major in Psychology – Rewiring the brain is my jam.
Minor in Education – I know how to teach, motivate and get results.
Dip Life Coaching – YOUR growth and success gets me fizzing.

7. I’m a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) & Hypnotherapy Practitioner  – so you can tap into and change your subconscious mind to create lasting change.

"My life coaching sessions with Bridie have been incredibly valuable and eye-opening. During my very first session, she identified a few insights that were like light switches for me - really on point and changed my mindset. She helped me realise what was actually important to me and what I wanted to achieve. By session two, we had actions in place that I could easily implement daily and use to work towards my goals. Bridie herself is warm and positive. She offers insightful perspectives, and she guided me to have more lightbulb moments. I really recommend working with her to assess the areas of your life that need attention, working together to see exactly how that can be achieved!"

"Bridie has a great balance between listening and offering her insights. She has this warmth which makes it extremely easy to talk to her about my current situation. During my session, she challenged my thinking and got me to think outside the box whilst providing encouragement. Every question she asked was meaningful and got me a step closer to uncovering what I needed. By the end of my session, she made sure I knew what my short term goals were for the week and what I needed to do to work towards them. Looking forward to our next session!"

"Bridie is a gem! She has shared her passion and love for helping others find a better version of themselves with me. I shared a lot with her, but she always remained discreet and compassionate, and found a solution at every obstacle to help me succeed. Her genuine positivity and desire to see women succeed and shift mindsets is so inspiring and "catching!" Bridie not only listens, she has a strong attention to detail and is very thorough. Her advice and recommendations to help shift my mindset from negative to positive were bang on, and fitted my life and goals perfectly. And all of that in just 3 sessions."

"I have 2 life coaching sessions with Bridie when I was so stuck with my career as new graduate. I feel confused and self-doubt about myself, all of my confidence has left me. But thanks to Bridie, I realised the values and strengths that have in me, that I should use them to apply for my career, to find the happiness in all the things I have been doing, instead of chasing and trying to change myself for something called passion. Thank you for your help Bridie and I am so thankful to meet you."

"Working with Bridie has literally changed my life! Her incredible energy, positivity, wisdom and guidance supported me through a tough 2019 helping me recognise that I am enough. Bridie goes above and beyond, she made the effort to understand me as a person, introducing me to a variety of support networks to enhance a more positive mindset and overall increased well being. Just talking to her lifts my spirits and allows me to see a brighter future. I feel so lucky to have Bridie as a life coach. My world and my heart is bigger because of her! Thank you Bridie ❤"
