Liz Gow

Liz has  worked with people in various capacities since 1995, as an Occupational Therapist, Life Coach, Counsellor, Creative Therapist, Therapeutic Coach, Professional Supervisor and a Yoga Teacher.

Her approach is simultaneously body-based (‘bottom-up’) and brain-based (‘top-down’).  She works one-on-one and also teaches classes and workshops, integrating approaches and toools from a diverse array of schools and methods, all of them proven to be effective in working with various aspects.  See for more information.

Her passion is walking alongside people who are ready for change and wanting  to be empowered as they tap into their intuitive selves, connecting to inner wisdom and moving beyond the stories of how life “should” be.

Conversations will be hopeful, uplifting, inspiring and focused on intentions/goals.  We will respectfully explore what is possible and how to move forward.
