Why coaching?  If you want to be the best you can be in sport, you get a coach.  Ditto for your life. Simply, coaching helps you get where you really want to be.

What makes Janet’s coaching unique? Her clients, for one. They have those creative complex minds that are crying out to be accessed to their full potential. In our world of left brain logic and media-driven images of success and society’s ongoing attempts to make us all ‘fit in,’ her clients have lived in a state of quiet rebellion, searching for their best way forward.  Coaching helps make that happen quickly.

Why choose Janet?

Janet is a certified professional coach. (details here)  Yes, she is a writer, an artist, and a bit of an adventurer, but her calling, her best skill, her training, and her expertise is in professionally coaching people who are searching for a way to get where they really want to be.

This is Janet’s passion. As a result, you’ll discover there’s no limit to the tools, resources, unique brainstorming, and extremely effective ways to support you as you make things happen.

All it takes is finding what works for you. And because we are talking about engaging the whole brilliant brain; playfulness, creativity, and using the power of imagination (like Einstein!) are part of the process.

Learning to ‘feel’ what is right, and kicking in the power of your intuition and emotional guidance system, all play a role.

So what does that mean? It’s fun!  Really. This is not your usual build-a-rigid-timeline, check-off-boring-to-do list, get-past-those-horrible-barriers-like-pulling-teeth kind of coaching.  That’s why coaching at Novel Minds works for those of you with novel minds!

Coaching Works: True Stories

~ Six hours coaching over six weeks, and the next month a young client was in the Far East to begin her world travel. She has never looked back at the office job she thought she would be stuck in for years before she could live her dream.

~ An extraordinary writer published her first novel in 18 countries and 12 languages. What an experience to be Lisa Stromme’s coach as her novel, The Strawberry Girl, was completed, submitted to agents, and took off to literally travel the world!



So many stories Janet has been honoured to witness…

~ A construction worker feeling like low man on the site, turned internationally noticed artist in just six months, published in an international magazine. He continued working on site but co-workers now were finding scrap metal, interesting mechanical objects, weathered wood… anything to support their now famous artist co-worker in his creative pursuits.

~ the evolution of an extraordinary musician as she pursues her career.

~ an unhappy accountant discovers her intuitive side, and not only builds a healing business, but enhances and builds a more traditional and very successful business that includes her intuitive skills.

Not sure if this is a fit for you, but curious?

Coaching is an investment – you want to feel good about making this decision. I am happy to have a phone call with you to help you decide if coaching feels like the right fit for you.  No obligation, no pressure. That’s just not what I do.  Send me a message and we can arrange a time to chat!

Just for a moment consider: If  you do nothing, what happens?

•You keep feeling stuck, you keep drifting

•More doubt seeps in telling you you don’t have what it takes

•The past haunts you and nothing much changes

•The yearning to change, to make more of life, continues to simmer but a part of you gives up.

My wish is for you to find something within Novel Minds (or elsewhere.. anywhere…)  to keep you from ‘doing nothing.’  You deserve to feel good about yourself now and about where you are heading!
