My Coaching Story
Since 2016, I’ve been working as a Co-Active Coaching Professional who specializes in helping you learn what guides you in life, both personal and business. I coach with the belief that you can achieve anything! I first learned about coaching from a dear friend who was just starting out on her coaching journey. At the time my kids were at school and I felt lost, like I didn't know who I was or what I wanted anymore. Coaching really helped me dig into my truth, what lights me up and realize the gifts I have to share. I decided to train myself up so that I could be an even better mum, wife and friend. I wanted to truly listen and be unconditional with my love and support for my friends and family. I found myself curious about how to stay connected with the people who mean something to me all over the world - like the distance wasn't really there. Over the next year, the techniques I developed were so powerful that friends and family began turning to me with their own challenges. This motivated me to turn my newfound passion into a full-time career.
Where did "Ray Of Light" come from?
Whats in a name? "That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet” - Romeo & Juliet
Raymond who was one of my best friends and the one who showed me love with humor, a lot of humor. I feel so fortunate to have had my fathers love, annoyance and friendship for 40 years, although the IT support calls I could have done without ;). My dad was loved by all my friends and their families, in fact I'm sure some friends came to my house just to hang with my dad :). He listened to my stories, told his own usually with some laughs, got righteously angry along side me, had a pair of very comfy cranky pants that he wore occasionally and held me to task when I was selling myself short, all the while feeling not good enough himself. I often find myself wondering what his impact could have been if he learned to love every piece of his being, to love himself through mistakes and failures of being human as well as at the heart of himself? His humanness was my favourite piece of him. In death, he is my guiding light, I can still hear his voice when life gets messy or tough. Growth can be murky and we all need a little ray of light, to feel its warmth and bask in for a while to pick ourselves up and keep going. Ray's passing is a reminder that life has a time limit, Ignore those self sabotaging thoughts! Choose joy, adventure and courage over comfort and the pain of staying the same. Go out and speak your truth, follow your dreams and believe in you because you are loved by many and you aren't meant to do it all alone!
Tell me about Tammy...
I was born and raised in Australia, lived in Hong Kong for 8 years and now living my most heart felt, best life in New York city with my husband, 3 kids and a dog. I continue to discover more about who I am every day. I have a zest for life, love colour (yes I spell the Aussie way), laughing, people, adventure, crystals, having soul to soul conversations, travel, and did I mention laughing?. My outlook wasn't always this way, other than the laughing part... I have had more than my fair share of obstacles which have been thrown at me in all shapes and sizes, needing to leave home at the age of 14 and a half. This experience had me grow up pretty quickly. I made a lot of mistakes and some I learned from and others took me a while longer to learn, I am still learning and always will. Life so far has been many journeys down so many different paths - some may call them books filled with adventure! I have grit, resilience, loyalty, love, a thirst for curiosity and am determined to love the shit out of myself!
