How can I help you?

Life Coaching

By visiting my website, you've affirmed your desire for transformation. You've said yes to discovering the path towards healing from depression, anxiety, and cultivating better mental health. It's an acknowledgment that life can be reshaped, felt differently, and embraced with more joy, purpose, and moments of peace.

Undoubtedly, achieving this transformation requires effort. As your coach, my role is to create a space for you, to witness your journey, provide guidance, and hold you accountable for the necessary steps toward a fuller life. These steps may challenge you, demanding a commitment to self that involves facing fears, embracing discomfort, and shedding tears along the way.

Choosing to prioritize yourself through our collaboration will involve navigating moments of fear and perpetual discomfort, but the potential for growth is immense. This journey isn't just about change; it's about reclaiming your life from past traumas, overcoming addiction, and dealing with loss. The work may be demanding, but the rewards are significant—you gain the power to define what your life will look and feel like, fostering a deeper sense of joy and appreciation for living.

I won't do the work for you, but I will stand by you through every challenging step of the process. Together, we can shift you from a place of feeling stuck and unfulfilled to one where you're empowered and joyful, with improved mental health at the forefront.

Addiction Recovery

Embarking on the journey of addiction recovery is a courageous and transformative process, and having the guidance of a skilled coach can make all the difference. In the addiction recovery coaching program, I draw upon a comprehensive and personalized approach to healing, using a myriad of tools and supports tailored to your unique needs.

With an understanding that addiction recovery is a multifaceted journey, I bring in my lived experience, having navigated similar challenges. Together, we'll explore cognitive-behavioral strategies, mindfulness practices, goal-setting exercises, and emotional regulation techniques, addressing the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of addiction for a holistic and sustainable recovery.

One crucial element of our work together is accountability. Collaboratively, we'll set realistic and achievable goals, creating a roadmap for your progress. Through regular check-ins and assessments, I'll support you in being accountable for your actions and commitments, fostering a sense of responsibility that is fundamental to the recovery process.

Our coaching relationship is built on trust, empathy, and understanding, stemming from my own experiences with addiction. I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore your challenges, celebrate victories, and navigate setbacks. This supportive environment encourages open communication and collaboration, empowering you to take ownership of your recovery journey.

The addiction recovery coaching program, enriched by lived experience, is designed to empower you to reclaim your life from the grip of addiction. By combining a variety of tools, ongoing support, and a commitment to accountability, together we'll navigate towards lasting positive change, fostering resilience and a renewed sense of purpose.

Soul-searching

I discovered my path to healing through the art of expression, and for me, that took the form of writing and vlogging. The act of putting pen to paper allowed my thoughts to cascade onto the page, each stroke revealing a layer of my true self. Simultaneously, facing the camera in my vlogs became another avenue for self-discovery, capturing not just words but the raw emotions and nuances of my journey.

With every stroke of my pen and every frame of my vlog, the real me, obscured by the shadows of trauma, fear, and the cacophony of societal expectations, emerged. As I delved deeper into this dual journey of self-discovery, I not only found a profound connection with myself but also developed a deep appreciation for the transformative power of both written and spoken words.

My love for myself grew in tandem with my love for storytelling through various mediums. Through my writing and vlogs, I invite you to join me on this immersive adventure. Together, we'll navigate the twists and turns of life, confront pain and adversity, and celebrate both the monumental and seemingly insignificant moments. Whether through the written word or the lens of a camera, the journey promises to be engaging and authentic. Get ready for the ride, where the power of words meets the visual storytelling of vlogging!

Hi, I'm Kerri

I am a coach dedicated to guiding individuals who are weary of merely going along with the flow, particularly those ensnared in the grip of addiction, anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges. My mission is to empower them to break free from the shackles of an unfulfilling life and transition from mere existence to full, vibrant living.

My passion lies in aiding individuals in discerning what genuinely nourishes their well-being, addressing the roots of addiction, anxiety, and depression, and offering unwavering support to guide them towards a life of intentional design.

I specialize in instilling new behaviors that foster a healthier mind, body, and spirit. Through targeted efforts, we work together to reprogram limiting beliefs and cultivate new perspectives that align with a fully expressed life. With my support, you will cultivate a heightened self-awareness, dismantle obstacles hindering your authentic self, and adopt life-transforming strategies to create a more fulfilling reality. Together, we embark on a journey of overcoming addiction, managing anxiety, conquering depression, and navigating other mental health obstacles to achieve lasting well-being.

"The truth is, our story is always unfolding. While we want everything to be happy and light, the human experience requires us to walk through dark and messy too. I embrace it all and know that it is the whole of my human experience that creates a life well lived!"

Life Is Meant to Be Fun!

My topic for today is laughter- more importantly, fun.
I’ve recently connected with several people who the very thought of fun is foreign to them, which is incredibly telling as to why they’re struggling emotionally, physically. Because the reality is, life is meant to be fun. And we have been conditioned to work, and work, and work and stress. And we’ve lost sight of the fact that
we should be able to experience moments of joy.
Do you really think that we exist in the human body to grow, go to school, go to more school, get a job, buy a house, get a partner, have 2.5 kids a dog, go to work, and rinse and repeat until we retire? And then hopefully, we’ll have enough energy to go do the things that we’ve always wanted to do. I don’t believe that’s the case. It is when we incorporate intentional moments of fun, in every single day of our lives, that we are able to tap into that experience of growth, of creativity, of peace.
If I’m feeling particularly anxious or overwhelmed by the circumstances that I am going through in my life, or with something I’m contending with at work, I will stop and lean more intentionally into doing something fun. When you take yourself out of the angst, you give yourself permission to leave it on the table and do something differently. More often than not, when I’m having fun, creative solutions come to me. I’m able to
come up with an idea or a thought that will either free me from the anxiety completely, or allow me to take action so that I can
move through the difficult situation.

What do you do for fun?
Can you give yourself permission today to do something unexpected and joyful for yourself? Go for a walk. Sing your favorite song. Dance like a fool.
I promise you, you won’t regret it. Your mental health won’t regret it. Your body won’t regret it. And because we are all consciously connected, the people around you will really benefit from it too.

Until next time, be well and show up in kindness and love for yourself.

Anita Govender, Belief Transformation Specialist: Interview

Kerri: What is it that belief transformation specialists do?

Anita: I work at the level of limiting beliefs that are a part of our subconscious. So, in the work that I do, it is a two pronged approach where I work with the limiting beliefs at the level of mind, and then also releasing the energy blockages that are created by those beliefs based on the experiences that we had. And I help facilitate the healing of those blockages and the release of that as well. So, we go from both aspects. And that allows someone to let go of their inherited beliefs, and then form new ones for themselves. And this is, you know, the empowerment piece of them choosing what it is they want going forward.

Kerri: That is so beautiful. And I absolutely love it. Two things I want to highlight before I ask you how you got to this place in your life. The first was that you said, inherited beliefs, right. So, for anybody out there, what I need to point out was you just kind of acquired these beliefs rather than it being something that you chose. Important, because we all sit in guilt and shame over these beliefs we have when really there’s no reason to. And then secondly, I’m highlighting that you facilitate your client’s ability to choose the beliefs that serve them, right, so powerful, because when you are given the ability, you get to create beliefs that make you feel so good. I love the work you’re doing. And I really appreciate it because I really believe that as people start to recognize that they have the power of choice within their subconscious, we will inevitably see a more loving, compassionate world.
