Author Bio

Prior to becoming a coach, Wendy’s background included journalism, broadcasting, training, and small business ownership as well as the benefit of extensive personal growth work.

With more than 20 years of formal coaching experience, Wendy is a certified graduate of the first coaching school, Thomas Leonard’s Coach U, and David Rock’s Results Coaching Systems. She has had over 20 years of experience coaching people, from all walks of life and with all sorts of issues and challenges around achieving their goals and outcomes.

As one of the earliest members of the ICF Australian Chapter, she held the then advisory position of Coach Credentialing Leader, helping people understand the benefits and what was involved in obtaining an ICF credential. She still regards the ICF as a benchmark for coaching excellence.

About 10 years ago, Wendy felt that as well as having coaching clients, it was time for a new venture.

As a feature writer for newspapers and magazines, she always loved to simplify information and inform the reader in a user-friendly, down-to-earth way. She created the website Life Coaching Professionally to continue this value.

One of her biggest motivators for creating this resource was the lack of independent information available for new and aspiring coaches.

Everywhere Wendy looked for information, it was being presented by coaching schools or coaches with the main, and often hidden, agenda to enrol people in their programs rather than give balanced information.

Over the last 10 years Life Coaching Professionally and her newsletter, Life Coaching Accelerators have evolved into a valued, independent resource for coaches and become Wendy’s life’s work and legacy.

Wendy’s Life Coaching Successfully Series of books is also an evolving expression of her work, passing on information and skills for successful coaching in a compact and user-friendly format. You can find details of the books here for the best bundle price deals, and also on Amazon.
