I am so grateful for all my experiences. I am blessed to have grown up with a supportive, loving family and a home surrounded by the sea and native bush. My teenage years were a mixture of ‘safe’ and…your usual teenage shit. I left home to go to uni and met girls who are still by my side today and of course…a boy.
Gaining a BA in Psychology and Education in New Zealand, I moved to London in 2014 with this boy. Like most Kiwis, the aim was two years in London, travel as much as we could, then return home to start all the ‘adult stuff’.
I thought I knew who I was; my fears, strengths and enough self-love, but a part of me knew there was a piece of me missing. 7 years into my relationship and 2 years into London life, I found myself progressing quickly in a career that wasn’t fulfilling me, experiencing massive burnout, my relationship over and the overwhelming feeling that can occur when living in a massive city.
As fuc*ing hard as this was at the time, this shake up needed to happen. It was the moment I stopped attaching my value, my identity, my happiness onto other people and things. I surrounded my self with books, courses, workshops and talks from people that I now call my mentors. Through dedication to honouring myself, I embarked on an epic journey of facing my fears, world travel (both solo and with mates), and a growing appreciation for my authentic self, for life and for self-growth. I have become addicted to learning, self development and aligning with my purpose;
To serve, motivate and empower people to live a life of purpose and love for oneself.

"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!"Dana Broekhuizen
"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!"Casey Zhang
"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."Lucy Jackson
"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."Nhu Nguyen
"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 ❤"Kara Dunn
