I’m Kirsten, also known as Lila [lee-lah], a certified Life Coach; Happiness Coach; ThetaHealing Practitioner and a member of WACN (World Association of Coaching with Neuroscience).
I’m thrilled to be able to have this space and share with you some insights about my journey, with its ups and downs, and the inspiration and wisdom that has brought me here.
My journey of inner-reflection and discovery started with the feeling of being close to burnout and the ending of a relationship. In many areas of my life I was feeling lost and I questioned every essence of myself. I didn’t like the narrative I was speaking within and I knew I had to take control and make a fundamental change.
I took a sabbatical from work and I was able to recognize my passion for supporting the emotional needs of young adults and building conscious relationships with those around us. During my time in India, I embraced taking the name Lila Shakti which in essence means “Power of Play”. This was my way of celebrating finding an influential part of myself that had been hidden for a long time and making a promise to not take life so seriously. I no longer wanted to miss out on the fun & happiness that each moment can bring.
I’m a foodie at heart with an adventurous spirit. I love to explore new cities and experience new cultures. You’ll receive the biggest smile from me with the mention of a bookstore or visiting a cafe for green tea.
I have a BA in Accounting and HRM. My corporate experience of managing multiple teams has allowed me to deepen my skills in emotional intelligence and relationship building. As an enthusiastic coach, I build rapport and create a safe environment for new knowledge and truth to unfold for my clients. Finding the balance and harmony of our emotions is transformational!
