One-Off private sessions


My coaching style is holistic: I focus on developing the bodymind of my clients, building connection to, and centering within, their individual mindbody ecosystems. 

My areas of expertise include: communication skills, both verbal and nonverbal, including listening skills and empathy; confidence-building and self-actualisation; presentations, content creation and delivery; storytelling; and leadership skills, including influencing and negotiation.

My PhD is in communication and leadership, and my approach to coaching is always research-based.  Having worked for many years as an actor and acting teacher, my sessions are very practical and experiential, utilising embodied practice.  I emphasise creative thinking, and cognitive flexibility. 

I am interested in how we tell our stories, to one another, and to ourselves; as well as how we carry our stories in the body.  I am passionate about helping my clients develop their authentic presence by releasing self-judgement, both psychologically and physically, and reconnecting to their centre. 

My coaching practice

"The class was small, only 6 students which gave a very personalized experience. I learned a lot and Isla was awesome."

- Pete, Presentation Skills

"Isla was very engaging and encouraging – she was knowledgeable about her subject and happy to answer our questions.  She also made us all feel comfortable and the warm up activities were fun and broke the ice."

- Presence & Impact student

"I was nervous about the session before going, but I thoroughly enjoyed it – and would do it again.”
