Coaching


Wokie is a master at communication with the uncanny ability to cut through the layers and get to the heart of any issue. She helped me come up with an understanding and approach that enabled me to confidently and successfully deliver my message.
Wokie, you took the stress out of a complicated situation and helped me to approach it with calm clarity. Thank you!!! Your ability to understand everyone’s point of view is incredible.
I’ve chatted to other people who claim to be life coaches or therapists, but I’ve never had such a positive experience and felt so empowered after such a short period of time. THANK YOU Wokie! You’re a true star!
Wokie is a gifted deep listener and coach for women like me who are leaning into the discomfort (gift) to become fully and powerfully self expressed.
