CJ’s Story

ep, to most I am known simply as “CJ” – the Tobago-born yogi who loves bright colours (especially purple) and has a knack for finding a positive in just about any situation.

After obtaining my BA in Psychology and a Certificate in Solution-Focused Therapy, I entered the corporate world and worked my way up to a leadership role, where I really enjoyed being able to  coach my team on their professional development. Each person confidently applied their newly-discovered skills to take on more fulfilling roles in their careers, while living balanced personal lives. After receiving news of a pending lay off, my role shifted as I supported a team of 9 through a very, very difficult time. I was so proud when each had found a new role! I then returned to school to start my own transition and became a Certified Life Coach, and immediately decided that I was going to support clients through challenging professional transitions. This includes understanding the impact that Mindset has on our personal development and ultimately – our Professional growth.

“Coaching with CJ” means that you will: find your Urgency; honour your emotions,  work on your Mindset to identify: mental blocks, limiting beliefs and other obstacles, overcome feeling overwhelmed, goal-setting, create action plans, accountability, prioritize, stay positive during challenges, get strategic and so much more!
