You're ready to BE the person they said you couldn't be...

Rewrite the narratives that say you're "too much" when you speak up, and "not enough" when you don't.

This coaching is about self-agency. Full stop.  

BOOK A DISCOVERY CALL

You're ready to speak up, you're ready to show up, I'm here to help you!

You (rightfully) have high standards. 

You are extraordinary at what you do, in your life, in the world.

You can be a bit of a perfectionist. (Me too, girl!)

You have a huge heart and people say they feel safe around you. 

You're seen as a natural leader, and you're rewarded for that. 



You feel the weight of trying to juggle all of the things; the boundaries, the hard conversations...  


Despite your undeniable bad-assery, trusting yourself feels tough... 

Which makes sense, because the culture we live in has made it REALLY challenging to be a bad-ass woman; to heal, to follow that which lights us up. 

And that's a real head scratcher because...

Deep down, you're aware of your immense power, and know that you can conquer anything you set your mind to...

You're ready to...

* Slay the public speaking thing once and for all.
* State the price and share their brilliant work.
* Be on camera, on stage and in high stakes environments with ease. 

But mostly, you're here to spread your magic medicine (Aka: your "life's work" to those it can help. 





Here's what Kaeli had to say about our work together! 

"I’ve been in a leadership role for a year now and have been struggling with delivering honest feedback to team members that felt like a win for both sides, and without it feeling threatening or overly critical. I was struggling with what being a great leader meant in a practical way.

Elise offered real tools I could use immediately in real situations, I grew and developed my leadership skills from every session. I feel much more confident entering into potentially uncomfortable conversations, knowing that I can hold space not just for myself but for those in my charge as well!

These are real, practical skills that will pay dividends if you invest in them! Sign up with Elise and watch your leadership skills GROW!"

...and  Nikki had this to say about our work together!

“Working with Elise, I was able to let go of some of my fears around perfection or looking silly, and sink into what it meant to identify myself, my desires, and my goals. Elise helped shift me perspective from being a passive character in my own life, to a much more active one. I highly recommend working with Elise if you struggle with communicating not only with others, but also with yourself.”


Nikki Rose Martin ~ Actor/Musician/Writer/Teacher

Our Work Together Includes:

VOICE ACTIVATION COACHING

SOMATIC HEALING WORK

  • Access the power of your voice, so you can speak with confidence. 

  • Speak your truth, anywhere, to anyone, at any time. 

  • Claim your story so you can inspire others as a thought leader, public speaker, or entrepreneur. 

  • Overcome your fear and discomfort around speaking, so you can share your body of work with the world. 

  • Make powerful impressions with your work, so you can make a massive impact doing the thing you’re on this earth to do. 

  • Meet the parts of you that have been asking for love and attention, so you can resolve what holds you back. 

  • Transform your reactions at a nervous-system level, so you can manage stressful situations with grace.

  • Learn to understand and trust your body’s wisdom so you can pay attention to YOU. 

  • Heal the blocks and limiting beliefs that have kept you from stepping into your power, so you can hold power with confidence. 

  • Unlock a deeper sense of soul-aligned self purpose, so you can feel fulfilled. 

VISIBILITY COACHING

  • Build capacity to stand in front of cameras, on stages and in zoom rooms with cellular level confidence. 

  • Interrupt the stress responses (aka: when your body freaks out) when it's time to show up in your body of work, so you can SHOW UP in airtight integrity. 

  • Gain cellular level confidence, so you can BE authentic, without performing.

  • Inspire a sense of aliveness in your body when you think about sending your work out into the world. 

  • Feel safe in your body to be seen and heard. 

Why all 3?

Simply put—in 20+ years, I have never had a client who worked on one area of their visibility or truth telling without touching the other two.

From a somatic and emotional perspective, your ability to speak up, express your emotions, and hold power are intrinsically intertwined. 

The beautiful thing about our work together is that your sessions are 100% fluid and fit to your needs—so while we’ll bring in all three modalities, you’ll get exactly the blend of each that you need to accomplish your goals and start speaking your truth. 

“Elise encouraged me to listen to myself ~ REALLY LISTEN TO MYSELF for the first time in my life

 ~ She helped me open up another door in my life's journey that allowed me to lean into my purpose with new fervour.”

Knowing that you have something special inside of you that needs to be brought out into the world requires a great deal of tenacity. Elise nurtures this tenacity through patience and compassion, even when you may not have enough of it for yourself. If more of us are attuned to our purpose in our work, we can innovate in ways that help heal our societal ills. If that all sounds rather lofty to you, you just need to work with Elise to experience it. Elise is a gentle maverick in the coaching industry!”

Frequently Asked Questions

YOU’VE GOT QUESTIONS, I’VE GOT ANSWERS

What is your qualification to do this coaching work?

I'm so glad you asked! I'm trained as a Transformational Life Coach, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, A Voice Body Connection Leader (candidate for certification), Certified in Somatic Voice Work, and am ICF certified in Neuro Somatic Intelligence Coaching. I've also studied Non-Violent Communication, PolyVagal Theory with Deb Dana AND have 20+ years experience as a Voice and Stage Performance Coach. 

You mentioned this coaching can help with my personal life ~ can you say more?

Yes! Women are leaders in business, yes, and also have the added experience (whether it be societal or personal) of leading families and personal relationships. All of the tools learned in this work directly transfer over to personal conversations and many of my clients say their relationships have improved greatly since working with me!

How is the coaching delivered? Do I have to come to you? 

Coaching and VIP Days are delivered online worldwide via ZOOM OR in person at my Halifax NS studio. Want to fly me to you for a 1:1 intensive in your home town*? Let's chat and work the details out!
* travel, and accommodation fees are in addition to coaching/consulting fees.  

Can you help me gain confidence to speak in public? I have a TED Talk in me, I think!

YES! And you're gonna ROCK that TED Talk! One of the nick names some of my clients gave me years ago was The Stage Fright Whisperer , so rest assured this work targets all of the concerns that keep us from feeling comfortable in front of crowds or on camera too! CHECK IT OUT HERE! 

Is this therapy?

This work is trauma aware somatic coaching and consulting. Although my clients find the work "therapeutic", it should not be used as a replacement for therapy, if that feels like what you need. I started studying Somatic Experiencing and nervous system science because my clients inevitably come to me with trauma. While I am well equipped and trained to support what comes up in sessions, it is recommended that if you have unprocessed deep trauma, this work is best done in tandem with a mental health professional.

Do you work with folks who don't identify as  women?

I'm so glad you asked this question. My coaching and consulting is approached from an intersectional point of view and I absolutely welcome non-binary folks into this work. I frame my work from the perspective and experience as a white cis gender woman with privilege AND I have also purposely created this work to celebrate diversity with intention, to create an affirming culture of bravery and belonging, where every client can be their fullest selves and speak their authentic truth.

This is where your nervous system heals so you can BE seen in your bold presence and speak your truth with unshakeable confidence.
