Your Coach: Jeanette Isaacs-Young PCC
Jeanette’s passion lies in helping people uncover their life’s purpose, and to live life ‘on purpose’. Everyone is busy with something, but our busy-ness is not always our passion, or connected with our abilities. Life’s purpose is according to ones underlying nature. What is that nature and how do we find it? For each of us there is an area of occupation that is stimulating and rewarding. But we are not always there. What liberation when we find the work that truly nourishes us, (and also pays the bills!).
When Jeanette’s enthusiasm and energy for life are applied to her work, happiness spreads. When she assists in the discovery, recovery or un-covering of true passion, sources of energy are unlocked. Freedom used wisely, is the principle underpinning her practice. Curiosity, and a belief in lifelong learning, animates her interest in people. Networking and sharing resources are integral to her nature.
Jeanette has three decades of experience as an Occupational Therapist, with a reputation as an educator with heart, a therapist who cares more than people expect, and as someone who treats all people with a consistent respect. She has at her disposal, a unique combination of skills and insights to share. People appreciate the calming influence they experience in her company, and the self confidence she inspires.
Opportunities to collaborate with people during life transitions led Jeanette to explore different pathways for personal, spiritual, and cultural change. She now focuses her work on the need she perceives for people of all walks of life to become more self responsible and resilient. They can then respond, with compassion and sustainable energy, to the evolution of 21st century communities.
Jeanette has worked in Mental Health services in Victoria, NSW and Queensland , taught Occupational Therapy at undergraduate and post graduate levels in Victoria for six years, and has taught courses at Universities, TAFE institutes, and community centres.
