A lighthouse is a universal symbol

of strength and guidance.

But without its light, it's simply a tower.

Its power and purpose is in its light.

By igniting your light, you too can

find your inner strength and guidance.

"Be the Lighthouse"

What would your life look like if you:

- felt confident

- believed in yourself

- knew exactly what you wanted

- were capable of making and trusting your decisions

- had authentic and fulfilling relationships

- uncovered your life purpose and developed a plan to start living life with that as your driving force?

If you're NOT living your BEST LIFE right now,

how much is it costing you?

How is it affecting your health?

Your relationships?

Your career?

Do you feel like something's missing? 

Are you craving 'more', but not exactly sure what?

Once you start following your soul's compass instead of the one-fits-all map, everything changes.


Below program participant Teddy Ryan describes her experience of understanding the concept of the Soul's Compass:​

When you connect with this part of yourself, and start living from your soul's compass, all areas of life improve because YOU improve your relation to self. 

When you're well with yourself, you're well with the world.

All of this and more is possible for your life.

With the right tools and mindset techniques, your life journey can and will flow with much more ease and joy.

It's time to take the wheel and start purposefully and intentionally creating the kind of life you're excited to live.

Life is damn short - and you deserve to be happy!

"Be the Lighthouse" is an 8-wk coaching program where you will learn how to resolve mental blocks, overcome limiting beliefs, and end destructive thought patterns that have been holding you back from the life you deserve.

This is not just a 'positive thinking' program. You know as well as I do that it takes a lot more than affirmations and mantras to turn your life around. There's nothing wrong with those things, but to make substantial changes in your life, you need actionable steps.

Through this program you'll grow in confidence and self-belief by doing the necessary work to uncover what is really holding you back. You'll also learn how to reframe any mistaken beliefs into ones that work for you rather than against you - and yes, there's homework and accountability! 

You'll gain a greater sense of clarity about what you want in life, and develop a concrete plan on how to achieve, accomplish or become that.

Those answers won't come from me. I'm not living your life - you are - and your answers are unique to you.

I'm not the kind of coach that waves a magic wand or pulls tricks out of her hat. This work takes work: time and commitment from you.

As your coach, I'll provide:

  • Creative ways to approach self-discovery - we'll have some fun with art, writing, visualization processes; etc.

  • Tools and techniques to really understand your thought processes and how to manage your own thinking

  • Accountability - I'll 'call out' your procrastination and excuses until you see them for what they really are and just how damaging they are to your life.

  • Professional Coaching on how to shift mindset and perspective by applying practical principles

  • Personal Experience - I'm a sharer. I've already walked this talk. The guidance and direction I offer that leads to your own answers has come from my own journey of transformation.

Think about what you want to change in your life.

No matter how much doubt you may have,

I'm here to tell you that you can live your best life.

You simply need a new

(and perhaps different) approach.

You need practical tools, easy techniques

and creative ways to manage your thinking.

You need to learn how to make your brain work

for you, not against you.

You need to tap into your own guidance and motivation

to get the results you truly want.

These women and others invested in themselves, and in doing so have changed their lives in so many ways for the better.

Your life is also worth investing in because



You'll be taken on a progressive self-discovery journey that uses creativity to explore and reconnect with inner truth and awareness.


Through guided activities, you'll access your intuition and find the answers that are right for your life.  


This is deep work and as such, it is broken into manageable pieces that build upon each other. 


You'll gain greater awareness through the assigned actionable steps of the program and build momentum that leads to greater alignment and understanding of the 'self' as a whole. 


The purpose of all activities and assignments is to uncover what is personally true for you. This is a program about living authentically through energetically aligning with who you are at your core and backing it up with consistent mind management principles and the power of self-belief. 

As with anything in life, you will get the most out of this program by being open to new concepts, trusting the process presented to you, and exerting a willingness to learn by doing.


Both program versions unfold weekly as follows:

Sun. - receive a training video via email

Wed. - LIVE additional training within private FB Group

Mon. to Fri. - complete weekly assignments

Fri. - submit homework via email

Sat. - meet on zoom for coaching session + Q/A

Additional support:

1.) Email access to Michelle throughout the week

2.) Access to a private pop-up FB group where you can interact with Michelle and other program participants throughout the week

3.) Mid-week LIVE sessions with Michelle + on the spot coaching

Note: Time differences will be accommodated as much as possible for the Saturday Group zoom call. Once everyone is registered, we can take a consensus.


Zoom calls for those on the Individual program will be arranged with each person privately.

If you miss a LIVE training or Zoom call in person, no worries - replays will be available.


There are no specific supplies required, however for several of the exercises you'll need something to write in such as a journal or notebook.

In WK #3 and #4 you'll be exercising your creative curiosity and will be led through an art-creation process. Don't worry, this is NOT about making a perfect piece of art, but rather about how creating art can help you discover more about yourself.


So, you'll need some basic art supplies - paper, crayons, pencils, markers, paints; etc. The materials you use are totally up to you, and they do not need to be elaborate or costly. I'll discuss this further in WK 3's lesson.

My program, "Be the Lighthouse"  provides training, tools and techniques to help you access your inner strength and guidance while developing a well-lit path to a life full of courage, confidence, and certainty. 

I'll let you in on 'not-so-well-known' secret: We're already equipped with the necessary tools, knowledge, and skills needed to create a happy and fulfilling life, but many of us lose our way along the way. The fog of life temporarily blinds us to our own power.


"Be the Lighthouse"  will guide you Mind, Body and Soul back to who you truly are - back to your authentic uniqueness. The tools, techniques and mind-shifting practices you'll learn, will help you create a future that's right for you - a future free of doubt, fear and uncertainty.

A quick note about me: I grew up at Cape Pine Lighthouse in Newfoundland, Canada. Yep, I'm a lighthouse girl. This means that marine metaphors are are part of my DNA, so you'll see them sprinkled throughout the program's content. 


I'm a teacher by trade, a creative at heart and a coach by choice.  I'm a visual artist, author, singer, songwriter and musician. I love words and I love finding creative ways to explain complex concepts.


I bring all parts of who I am to my coaching practice - I share my own journey of discovery, my own personal struggles, challenges and triumphs, and my own life lessons...... and incorporate it all with creative activities and mindset practices within the structure of a teaching framework.


My goal with "Be the Lighthouse" is to assist you in developing a stronger connection with your own inner guidance system - which I call the Soul's Compass - and through that connection find your own light and understand how you can shine brightly in the world. 


Your light is there, it's inside you. It has just been dimmed. NOW is the time to flick the switch and really light up from inside. I'd love to help you rediscover this part of yourself because I truly believe that you can ......

I'd be honoured to work with you.  

Nothing would give me greater joy than seeing

YOU light up your life.

I hope you decide to invest in YOU

and become a "Lighthouse Beamer"
