It usually starts with something like this:
I feel stuck, I’m frustrated, and to be honest, I’m freaking exhausted.
Isn't there more, something's not quite clicking with the jam I've been jamming' on...what am I missing??
Erydangthang is going really well, like out-of-this-world well, but it's made me wonder if I can't move from out-of-this-world to, like, an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT STRATOSPHERE.
And we get it. You did everything you were supposed to and then some. You followed the recipe, you managed the checklist, you not only met expectations - you exceeded them, yet for some reason you’re not exactly where you want to be. You’re not exactly who you want to be.
You tried listening to Florence and The Machine, you tried to shake it off, you talked to your BFF, and you even booked a three week trip to (INSERT MIND BLOWING INTERNATIONAL LOCALE). You’ve tried lots of things. And although they felt fly at the time, they were band-aids, discretions, not quite right. You know this because you've come full circle, and you're basically back where you started.
You’re ready for change but you’re not sure exactly what it is, or how to get there. You’re unsure about your calling, or how to hear it. Or maybe you know all that jazz, but you’re having trouble figuring out where to start or how to keep going.
Well, get ready because we’ve got some answers, and believe it or not, you’ve got some answers, brilliant ones, mind-blowing ones, ones you’re going to find in 1:1 Coaching.
We’re going to dig and uncover, and dust off and discover. We’re going to tap your intuition like it’s a giant maple tree. We’re going to get you thinking out of the box…actually, scrap that. We’re going to get rid of the box. We’re going to work together to paint a picture of who you are and where you’re going that is 100% unique to YOU. Zero advice. Zero prescription. All YOU.
At first, you’re not even going to believe what you see, but after a little while you’ll be saying things like, “WTF!?!?! This is amazing” and “I’m gonna go big AND go home” and “geez, this feels so easy” and (our personal favorite) - "WATCH. ME. NOW."
Steph is a truth teller, and a provocateur. Her coaching is a marination in love, mixed with bold intuition, a dash of straight-talking authenticity and a pinch or three of humor. She's been at it for well over five years, and has worked with hundreds of women across the globe, helping them release themselves from expectations and limitations and say "FUCK, YES!" to the dare that is life.
Steph is a master at pulling out patterns, and she challenges her clients to go to the next level by knocking down doors, and locking eyes with the truth. She balances a tangible, grounded approach with deep, soulful, dare we say, spiritual work. In other words, she's no messing around. If you're looking to go big, like rocket-into-the-stratosphere kind of big, Steph's your gal.
She's is a Certified Executive Coach (Royal Roads University) and splits time between Southern California and British Columbia. When she's not coaching, you can find Steph traveling, writing, speaking, reading, and doing (in her words) "shit tons" of her own self-work.
I’d been considering working with a coach for a while, but I never really found anyone that felt like they’d get me… until I met Steph. This lady is badass. She’s not afraid to throw chunky questions at me, to go deeper and get to the real ‘why’ behind big life-stuff, which is exactly what I wanted in a coach. No bullshit. Straight-up authenticity. She's is the real deal.
Steph Jagger is the island in the storm. She is the place where we expect to listen, but end up doing the talking. She is a safe haven from which to be challenged. She will ask you to consider why you feel compelled to make certain choices and how it could all turn out differently if you just thought about it another way. She is intensity blended with impartial compassion. She will inspire, she will motivate, and she will watch in awe as you draw the answers you seek from yourself.
Lucie is as cool as a cucumber and packed to the brim with intuitive intelligence. She just about falls over and dies when she gets to work with soulful seekers, people who are seeking answers to life's big questions. "Who am I?", "Why am I here?" and "What's my purpose?" are Lucie's jammiest jam - it's where the magic happens for all of her clients.
Lucie creates a safe space to ask big questions, you know, the kind that send The Universe a signal that you're ready to toe the line of your growing edge and/or ready to leap right off it, and you know, reap the rewards of life-changing transformations. She supports clients through the discomfort of transitions (the good ones, bad ones and ugly ones) by going deep and weaving together powerful themes. If you're looking for clarity in murky waters, Lucie's the gal for you.

Shannah is a burst of light, a warm and gentle soul who creates space for her clients to fill...fully. As warm as she is, Shannah also manages to create a no-bullshit environment where it's truth and love or nothin' at all (Oh, who's kidding who, she'll never give you nothin' at all, she'll always have some love for ya). Shannah's favorite clients are the people who are chompin' at the bit to be their fullest, free-est selves. She craves the magical "ah-ha" moments of identifying limiting beliefs and making a shift to leave them in the dust. She ignites growth and transformation in everyone around her.
Shannah is a Co-Active Coach (Coaches Training Institute), and has her Masters Degree in Communication Theory. She is currently on board as a GREAT BIG JOURNEY coach. On a side note, she has one of the best laughs in the game and enjoys reading, rock-climbing, hammock-ing, and yoga-ing.
Geraldine is an expert connector of dots and a believer in blow-your-hair-back kind of magic. She is bold, curious and always comes to the table prepared, with a large shovel, one she uses to help her clients dig deep. Geraldine's favorite clients are the ones who believe that even if they can't quite see it, there is gold underneath the rubble. She is a lioness, a protector and isn't afraid to roll her sleeves up to help clients get where they're looking to go. Lastly, Geraldine speaks "laughter" - working with Geraldine is a guaranteed good time.

My ideas and intentions were brimming but I felt I had no map, and no direction. I needed a view, an eye to the bigger picture and someone to help me see past myself. As I result of my coaching work I felt guided back to the truth of my purpose. I can see the potential of my truth more frequently, and more clearly. The ripple effect of this continues to this day.
I wasn't super convinced I needed a coach. I felt I had things under control, and was highly motivated and excited about my work. But the more I thought about it, I realized the idea of working with a coach had only upsides. As "on track" as I felt, there were certain things I knew had potential for more.
From the first moment, I felt both encouraged and directed.
I walked away with a new way to conceptualize my present and future, new tactics for transcending pervasive daily stresses, strategies for gaining perspective in times of tunnel vision, and a tangible feeling of clarity and empowerment. I would definitely recommend working with any of the Steph Jagger coaches.
