Personal Coaching


Tamara, Busy Executive

“Before I started working with Jodie I felt a little lost, I didn’t have any real purpose and generally lacked motivation. Jodie helped me to see things differently and now I’m coping with stress much better and am learning to be kind to myself when things don’t go to plan. After three months, I’m now feeling motivated, optimistic and on the right track again. It’s definitely been a great investment.”

Sarah Tanti, Real Estate Professional

"I am so grateful having met you, I absolutely could not have done it with out your encouragement! You made me realise home truths about myself in a non-judgemental environment and that for me, has been critical as to how I conduct myself through the next phase of life."

Kelly, Business Owner and Parent

"Jodie has given me the tools to manage stress and anxiety, and manage and priortise the 'to do list' without stress. Jodie's given me ideas on how to communicate with my children better. My husband had noticed a big difference in my stress and anxiety, I'm more relaxed now. Coaching has enabled me to view my life in a more positive light."

Daryl Hockey, Heavy machinery operator

"I have been with Jodie's work now for over 18 months. I have been diagnosed as suffering from ADHD for 10 years. Now the strand of ADHD that affects me is short term memory, lack of organisational skills, lack of future planning as well as anxiety coupled with depression. Everybody will no doubt have suffered from at least one of these problems if not more.

With a ADHD sufferer they experience it more intensely, more frequently and for longer. Jodie has been a major factor in bringing me out of the woods and 18 months down the track I have referred back to our work and I can honestly say that I have immediately achieved my smaller goals and now, even next week achieving my biggest goal which is travelling overseas on my own, as 18 months ago I saw it as an impossible and terrifying feat. If you're not a sufferer of ADHD imagine what she could possibly do with/ for you.

Jodie's work environment is very relaxed and we've had some good belly laughs as well. Thank you Jodie. I'm truly glad life sent me your way!"

Carolyn Dews, Former GM. Illawarra Academy of Sport

"I have worked with Jodie Cooper for many years. I approached Jodie in the capacity of being a Life Coach with a specific focus on assisting me with challenges that I was facing at work. Each month I would meet up with Jodie to discuss challenges and to develop strategies. I have found Jodie to be a true professional and a wonderful person, who is both an outstanding coach and a person with great values and integrity- someone who I am really able to relate to and trust.

Each month Jodie would listen to and discuss with me the challenges that I was facing and each month I would leave the appointment feeling much more optimistic about the future and with effective strategies that I could put in place in my work life and in my personal life.

I would highly recommend Jodie to anyone who wanted some guidance and assistance in life generally. The true value of a Life Coach is having someone who is qualified and experienced to listen to you and to assist you in achieving your goals and dreams!"

Jennifer Nelson, Manager Community Relations. Care South

"I thought the sessions were great and it made me take time to myself. I really looked forward to going.I have become much more forthright in my communication. I’m not afraid to express what I’m really thinking and I’ve been able to verbalise my feelings better. I think because I understand better exactly what I’m feeling and experiencing I’m better able to put that into words.

I am absolutely able to deal with my challenges differently and better. I still need to work on my self care but I’m a work in progress.

The most beneficial thing about my coaching was being in the moment with myself and focusing on what I need to improve. Thank you Jodie!"

Linda Brown, Wollongong

"I have gained so much insight and inspiration from my sessions with Jodie. What an amazing, open and gorgeous woman! She has drawn the best out of me and helped me see the best in others and the world in general. Anyone who thinks their life can be better – It can be! So much I have worked through – I am truly a better Linda – with determination, vision and self confidence to boot! Not only is my life more positive, my mind feels as though it’s been opened to endless possibilities and my hands have been placed on the steering wheel of my life……… and I have gained an awesome friend too."

Nicole Hickman, Occupational Therapist

"Coaching from Jodie Cooper was exactly what I needed to identify my self imposed limitations and develop strategies to overcome them so that I could move forward, with a positive frame of mind, to achieve my goals. Whilst personally confronting at times, coaching allowed me to step out of my comfort zone with the full support and encouragement from my coach. I would not hesitate to seek more coaching in the future to achieve further goals. I highly recommend Jodie Cooper as a professional and valuable coaching service."

Michelle Forte. Dance Professional

"If you want to be the best you can be, then Jodie's 6 week program will head you in the right direction. Arriving for my first session feeling quite apprehensive about what to expect, Jodie very quickly put me at ease with her motivating and caring manner. She has a unique ability to inspire without being pushy or forceful. After leaving my first life coaching session I was already looking forward to the second.

During the next 6-8 weeks I found myself leaving every session feeling inspired and excited about both long and short term goals. Jodie is very wise for her years constantly surprising me with ways of coping with difficult situations both personally and professional which in time develops an inner strength. I would have no hesitations in recommending Jodie to anyone who wants to tap into and reach their full potential!"

Michael, Young Entrepreneur

"Jodie helped me organise my dreams, wishes and ideas into realistic and achievable goals. Her straight advice backed with plenty of real world experience gave me a 'head start' on my path to the goals I set. She packed so much information into all the life coaching sessions! Jodie's' coaching isn't an expense- it's an investment into your future. If you ever feel stuck, lost, clueless or wondering what to do next, Jodie Cooper is the person to turn to."

Gabby Anchor

"Through the gentle and caring coaching I have received from Jodie I have been guided to clearly identifying what I want in my life and totally removing self-defeating thoughts. These thoughts are so powerless now I am no longer even able to recall them. I am confidently moving towards short-term and long-term goals. I am clear on where my personal happiness lies and on a daily basis enjoy the freedom of being at peace with me."

Rachel Flannery, Copy Wrighter

"Before meeting Jodie at a one day course she presented, I thought Life Coaching was for people with more dollars than sense. But during the course I felt strongly that Jodie could really help me develop a clear course towards my goals.

Once we got talking about what I wanted out of my career and out of my personal life, Jodie's insights were a revelation. Life Coaching has shown me how to make important changes in my life and I feel confident about my future for the first time in a long time!"

Fiona Kurtz, Contact Centre Manager. IRT

"After trying to complete self discovery on my own to find that ‘thing’ I had been searching for (but didn't realise at the time what that was), I decided that I would seek some guidance by a professional that could assist me achieving my goal.

I came across Jodie’s website and for some reason I felt a connection and kept going back and reading her website a number times. I finally made the call and Jodie spent 30 mins with me on the phone which was to just to make an appointment! That speaks for itself.

Jodie is an inspirational and motivational coach who challenges you to realise your full potential in all areas of your life. Jodie challenged me to specific activities to assist with changing my mindset and new ways of dealing with things which has provided me with feelings that I have not felt for sometime. Jodie has helped me enormously to have the courage and self confidence to try and achieve my personal goals and career goals, and she has supported me and inspired self-belief to help me actually achieve those.

While being a calm and inspiring person, Jodie has a listening soul and ability to understand and help define the big picture of my goals and help me understand personal issues that I never even thought of, she is also able to break down the steps needed to achieve these goals and give practical and insightful advice on how to take that first step towards your goal, whether it be finishing study, assisting in my career direction, realising personal goals and achievements, resolving family and relationship conflict and taking charge of my life.

Coaching, encouraging and listening are second nature to Jodie and I am truly grateful to say I have a wonderful mentor/coach in Jodie!

Jodie will certainly inspire you on your life journey and I can say she certainly has for me."

Sarah. Real Estate Professional

"After working with Jodie I’m feeling much more motivated and organised and my path forward is now crystal clear. I’m excited about my goals again! My relationship has improved dramatically and I just have a better perspective and mindset in all areas of my life.

Jodie has a great way of explaining things and a simple conversation would unfold in a week’s time, often with profound changes. I’m so happy I decided to come and see you, it’s been the best investment ever!"

Logan Stojcevski. Project Manager

"Working with Jodie over the last two months has been great. I’m feeling much calmer, much more in control and I’m now able to let go to the little things that used to stress me out. I've learned lots of simple strategies to improve my life and Jodie helped me to set and achieve meaningful goals, it really is a winning formula.

My mindset has shifted in a positive direction and I’m much happier in general now. I’m excited again about what I can make of my future! Yes, Coaching with Jodie Cooper was a great decision!"

Jordan Schaefer, Honours Student. University of Wollongong

"I came to see Jodie at the start of my Honours year in a Bachelor of Psychology because I was aware that certain aspects of my lifestyle (e.g. time management) were limiting my potential at University. Jodie helped me to implement meaningful change in a number of areas of my life that helped me to stay on track throughout a very challenging year. Jodie played a big part in helping me achieve first class honours and the best thesis mark from any student under my honours supervisor.

The sessions were enjoyable and engaging and helped me look at life from a different perspective. It amazed me how making a number of small, yet powerful changes made such a difference. My family and friends recognised how consistently I was able to work throughout the year and how much my time management improved. Jodie was also very happy to provide assistance outside our structured session times to help me get through periods when balancing course and thesis work seemed too much to handle. I truly appreciate your help, thank you Jodie."
