Personal Coach

Calandra Gilligan

I’m an NLP Master Practitioner & mBit certified Personal Coach & Therapist. I partner with clients as they pursue new and more fulfilling life experiences. I combine a pragmatic, action oriented approach with therapeutic tools that support clients to make systemic changes for lasting impact in their lives.

As your coach, I will guide you to develop your strengths, set goals that express your values, to understand and challenge your blind spots, and take powerful decisions. My passion and expertise will support you to become a more integrated individual, pursuing your own measures of success and liking yourself more in the process.

My clients are intelligent, well resourced people who come to me because they are feeling stuck, frustrated, anxious, unmotivated or have been taking decisions outside of their personal integrity. They know that they could be getting so much more satisfaction and fulfillment out of their lives and they’re hungry for change. I’ve helped a wide variety of people from executives & entrepreneurs to teachers and medical professionals.

If this sounds like you, then I hope to help you to achieve the following:


– Set robust, meaningful, values driven goals & be supported to achieve them

– Explore your passions, values & fears to live a life of purpose


– Learn to examine your thinking, expose limiting assumptions and integrate your head, heart and gut for   powerfully aligned decision making

– Understand & shift limiting behavioural patterns


– Increase your effectiveness and efficiency at work and outside it

– Clarify your boundaries & standards. Know how to defend your boundaries without conflict & consistently meet your own standards

– Behave with more self-compassion, confidence and self respect

– Meet challenge as a friend, not a foe.

– Develop confidence and self-esteem


– Master tools that reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression

– Implement workload management tools

– Relate well by learning to manage difficult conversations, listen for needs, ask incisive questions, and manage your own psycho/emotional state.

– Learn advanced communication skills
