Tools and strategies to build resilience and cope with adversity.
Covid has brought to forefront the need to have practical tools to deal with difficult situations. One of the most well received talks during this period has been Patty’s delivery of ‘SSASS’, an easy acronym to be used when faced with negative thoughts and adversities. It helps to easily acknowledge, understand and shift the negative thoughts to ensure better outcomes.
It’s often forgotten the power the mind has to create our reality. As Henry Ford says “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right”.
Our life is what our thought make it, this is why it is so important to have a clear understanding of the internal dialogue we have and how it impacts us. Patty shares top 5 secrets of how you can change your perspective, attitude and self-talk to change your life and the life of those around you.
A common thread I hear is people wanting to “live a happy life”. Covering the “HAPPY” acronym Patty is able to demystify the concept of “happiness” and bring clarity to what living a happy and authentic like life is all about. Empowering others to optimise their human capital, be the best they can be and therefore tap into their personal meaning of happiness and success.
Patty has a lot of corporate and personal experience around success and happiness and has a very graceful way of using this to coach you towards your own version of success and happiness.
I highly recommend Patty’s workshops, I learnt so much about myself and what goals I need to focus on. Location was perfect, an amazing day. Thank you.
Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity to reflect on my current life and provide clarity of where I want to head with do-able, achievable actions!
Patty is a very warm and happy soul. Always welcoming her knowledge so abundantly. Very enjoyable day.
After working with Patty on a couple of significant IT projects I cannot think of anyone better who has a success driven personality and a strong drive to succeed no matter what might stand in the way. Anyone attending this workshop will certainly get a positive outcome delivered by a very positive and goal orientated person.
I recently had the pleasure of attending a goal setting workshop. What a star. She has a beautiful insightful manner. I loved that the session covered both personal and professional goals. Patty’s corporate experience is apparent as she relates to real life scenarios. Patty’s reputation as a go to person in the consulting industry has extended to her new role. If you are looking for the opportunity to reflect on your next step, look no further.

Having worked with Patty and finding her a truly engaging change manager it came as no surprise to find Patty running a workshop like this. Her positive approach is inspirational and the way Patty links individual goal setting to one’s core values is a great approach.
Patty is wonderful, her stories help to deliver her message and help with real life examples.
I loved the atmosphere, energy and positivity of the event. Thank you Patty.
Patty was excellent, very interactive and worked well in a group setting!
I would personally like to thank you for facilitating the ‘Mindset Make Over’ workshop for our team. This was a wonderful opportunity for us to bond as a team and learn some really interesting information about mindfulness. It was obvious that you are truly passionate about this topic. The workshop was very interesting and the activities were highly entertaining with everyone actively participating and sharing experiences. We all walked away from the workshop keen to make some small, but positive changes to our lives through the way we think and communicate. Thanks to you Patty, we now have a new ritual at dinnertime where each of us shares something we are grateful for. Keep up the fantastic work Patty, as you are making a positive impact on every person who attends one of your workshops.
Hi Patty, Thank you for a great 1.5 days and the information below. As promised here is my testimonial for you… I thoroughly recommend attendance to Patty’s Mindset Make-Over Workshop. Not only will it highlight your potential to change your mindset and understand your emotions, it will help you discover your personality type and those of your colleagues. This workshop gets you thinking, communicating and discovering things about yourself and others! If you’re given the opportunity – take it!
Before I met Patty I was starting up my business as I had taken a Heal Thyself course over 12 months ago but hadn’t implemented anything.
When I joined, I initially wanted to get my website up and running, however, during the Elevate Your Mindset group coaching course with Patty I got clarity in exactly what I wanted, which was actually to become a coach.
Patty kept me accountable to finalise my program along with 6 assessments to ensure I put everything learnt into action and become a Heal-thyself Coach.
Thank you Patty for your guidance, your mindset, teaching, care and support getting the whole team to reach our goals.

If you want a truly authentic self improvement workshop that gives you the tools and sets your own responsibility and accountability for your success in life then you need to do Patty’s workshop. I attended Patty’s workshop in November and still use the tools in goal setting almost six months on that I learnt that day. These skills will now continue through my life. Thank you Patty!
For someone who is quite an organised and productive person I really found value in attending Patty’s Productivity Workshop. It not only cemented practices that I already have in place but gave me hints and tips for streamlining life even further, and interesting principles to implement. It has also reignited my motivation to simplify where possible, close loops, consolidate, prioritise, and think about my clarity of purpose which I’m finding is eye opening!
Thanks again Patty; your positive, infectious personality is truly inspiring and motivating.
I always dreamt of being a speaker but never had the courage to pursue my dream due to my paradigms, self doubt and imposter syndrome.
I have had extensive coaching but never successfully implemented and applied my learnings in the process of goal setting, hence dreams remain unfulfilled.
Patty taught me to be brave and to pursue my goal. I am now fulfilled, as an author, speaking my truth & happy mama. This means I have content, happy children and husband. I am thriving in mum/work life and pursuing my goal.
Patty is a bubbly, bright and extremely positive person, which quickly rubs off on the people around her. Patty gave me the push I needed to excel myself and overcome my doubts. I knew what I wanted however I was hesitant to make the leap. With Patty’s motivational words and positive guidance I am a happier, brighter, fitter and stronger person. She is the REAL DEAL! She is an excellent coach. She combines her wide-range of skills with her compassion & empathy to get to the heart of the problems you are experiencing in your life and business and shares practical strategies to create change in your life. I highly recommend taking a leap with Patty as a Personal Life Coach. She is worth the jump!
Before I met Patty, I was new to a leadership role with direct reports. I generally lacked confidence in my own abilities, lacked energy and needed to understand how to harness my skills and direct them in the most efficient way. I would often feel anxious and get stressed about delivering tasks and in my personal life I needed to set goals that balanced financial gain while still allowing the family to experience the rewards we all work so hard to achieve.
During the 18 months of coaching with Patty I became aware of my core values and how they influence my behaviours, how to harness the thinking part of the brain and explored the executive functions to better understand how to get things done. Through this process I became more confident in my skills and learned that my voice and knowledge were real and I had value to add to the organisation.
Now I have the confidence to accept new challenges including moving to a new role, but I’ve also learned the importance of enjoying what we work for so have balanced financial goals to allow travelling around Australia in a caravan and have planned to take regular holidays and tackle sections of Australia each year. Most of all I understand my own emotions and how they influence those around me which has helped me to communicate with others on a whole new level.
If anyone needs help with developing confidence, understanding how to harness their mind or gain some direction or clarity around their career or personal life I would definitely recommend you speak to Patty.
I didn’t know what to expect from coaching and was open to what it would bring. I knew there was more to life but wasn’t sure what it was or how to get it. I wanted to live a more active life, create healthier habits and be more productive with my time.
I found my purpose and long-term vision, stopped procrastinating, eliminated any fear and ended up resigning and getting a job doing something I’m passionate about.
We are now a lot more active as a family, manage my time and energy better and know how to prioritise to get everything that I want done.
Honestly, thank you Patty. I love what I do and know I’m heading in the right direction
About 12 months ago I was struggling to get an idea of what I wanted to do with my life.
There were lots of things spinning around in my head, everything seemed to be buried under a pile of confusion and lack of clarity.
So when I reached out to Patty, she was able to give me that clarity to help me see what my purpose of life was.
I now have clarity and found my purpose. I have gone from strength to strength to the point where now I’m building my own coaching business.
If anyone needs any help getting clarity and a sense of purpose in your life, I recommend Patty
