Want to peek behind the curtain to see what it’s like to do Health & Lifestyle Coaching with me?
What will you get out of it? Why is it 6 months? What does it require of you?
I asked two of my clients who have just completed their 6 Month Health & Lifestyle Coaching Programs to give their most honest and candid feedback about the process.
Megan is Mama to two beautiful daughters and founded her own Drama School ~ The Acting Experience where she is the Director of classes for teens aged 9 – 17 years. Here’s what she had to say when I emailed her some questions about coaching with me:
Why did you decide to start a 6 Month Program with me?
“I felt generally not right. It wasn’t that I was unhealthy but more a feeling of my energy being dull. I was extremely tired and hadn’t slept well for years. I had a sniffle that never left and I was tired all the time. Generally I had adjusted and gotten used to only operating on half my energy.”
When did you start to feel a difference? What were some of your biggest breakthroughs from our sessions together?
“Almost immediately. For me it was not just about starting to eat better, the first thing that Sacha Marie did was see what worked for me already. It was refreshing to know that I already had some great things that I did that were already helping me but I just hadn’t made them into habits. Sacha Marie helped me identify what they were. Instead of telling me I was doing the wrong thing through the entire process she always referred back to what already worked for me and we built upon that.“
Could you explain a bit about a client’s perspective of the coaching process and what it entails?
“Now for the free fall.
The whole coaching process was incredible. The amazing thing is that at each fortnightly session Sacha Marie helped me set easy achievable goals. At first the goals seemed too small and easy, I had never experienced such gentle and achievable coaching. The goals made such small easy changes that you don’t realise that you are actually making major adjustments that are making you into a different person – the person you wish to be.
At the start 6 months seemed like it would be too long but it is amazing how fast the program goes by and you need the whole 6 months to make the changes last. It is the small constant sessions and adjustments that made the difference.
There were moments that were difficult for me to get through and moments where I just didn’t give myself much credit and at each moment Sacha Marie helped me through the hurdle or block. Her loving, caring and gentle nature, alongside her knowledge of what works for the body and wellbeing, guided me gently through the process. At all times I felt in safe hands.
The results are truly amazing, I am sleeping well after years of broken bad sleep. I feel more energised and capable of facing everyday. The best part is that these changes were so gentle that they feel they are part of who I am and not something I just did for 6 months. I feel so different that it’s hard to remember some of the bad habits I used to have.
I can’t recommend this process or Sacha Marie enough. I am a healthier, happier and more energised person and I could not have made these changes on my own.”

You might remember that I ran a competition to win a 6 Month Health & Lifestyle Coaching Program and my lovely friend Céleste’s name was drawn out of the hat.
Celeste is a talented Photographer, who took the cover photos on this site. Her business Céleste Cebra was founded in 2013 and at present Celeste is undertaking her final year of study for her Bachelor of Fine Art, majoring in Photography. When I asked for her feedback on coaching with me, here’s what she had to say:
“Over six months ago I signed up to receive Sacha Marie’s blog notifications and went into the draw to win 6 months of Health and Lifestyle coaching and WON! Reading Sacha’s health, lifestyle and happiness tips and learning about her personal journey along the way helped me reflect upon myself and the life I was leading and the journey I was taking at the beginning of my six month adventure. It felt good to know what Sacha was doing, it felt good to read honest posts on topics that interested me, to be able to connect with Sacha’s stories and try out Sacha’s recipes and recommendations.
Sacha and I have known each other for many years and I was thrilled to be able to experience her exuberance for life and have her impart her wisdom on me. Six months seems a long time, however in the context of a lifetime, it is not very long at all, yet the impact Health and Lifestyle Coaching has had on my life is phenomenal and I can say with confidence it will be enduring.
Looking back I can feel that now, at this point in time that I have increased energy, a healthier diet and healthier habits in general, increased fitness levels and the motivation to pursue and continue my fitness regime and I am a more confident person.
All this said, the journey has not been a smooth one. If you want change you need to be invested and open to trying new things. I definitely felt resistance to change in my life in certain areas, but once I broke through those barriers I don’t know what I was resisting for, it’s all a forward journey. My mind, body and brain are all so splendidly happy and much more informed, decisions I make are now based on knowledge built up during the rigorous Health and Lifestyle Coaching program. I feel equipped and ready to tackle life and achieve the goals I want to. The program has given me time to reflect on where I am and what it is I am doing.
Sacha keeps a beautiful record of all of the progress, I received helpful information sheets on areas and topics that interested me (from dental hygiene, to time management issues, to self expression) and when I needed more information Sacha found it for me. I kicked unhealthy sugar cravings, coffee cravings, I am more productive and organised. I have greater clarity and joy in my life. Health and Lifestyle Coaching was the catalyst for these positive changes. The discussions I had with Sacha Marie increased my levels of awareness, I feel more accountable, capable and stronger.
Sacha Marie’s Health and Lifestyle Coaching is wondrously awesome because of its holistic approach, we have looked at all aspects of life and living and how they all work together and ways to achieve greater harmony and peace. Believe me when I say it is one hell of a journey and you really come out your true and best self.”
