When I was very young I rode horses in my spare time. I would often be away from home for the whole day riding in the forests near my childhood home. To sustain me through the day I would sell pony rides near the local shop to pay for my lunch. This was my first experience of being in business. I had something people wanted and they were prepared to pay for it. This suited me perfectly and was the first time I felt that I had something of value to others. From that time on I was hooked on the idea of working for myself and offering something that would help others and make them happy.
Since then many businesses over the years including a gourmet deli, transport business, personal development business, I’ve sold cookware, jewellery, clothing and taught Reiki. I’ve also worked for others from time to time but always felt constricted and like I didn’t fit in. In 2003 I was working in a job I loved with a boss who didn’t like me. It all came to a head and I resigned. This was the beginning of what I do now. I opened a retail gift store and started learning everything I could about why people do what they do, act the way they act and how could I share some of what I had learned about myself that might help others. The gift store expanded and I was constantly having people asking for advice and guidance on ways to improve their life. It was at this point I discovered NLP. This new discovery gave me the tools to improve my life and to make sense of some of the traumas I had had up until that point. And so began my quest to study psychology, NLP, neurophysics and the law of attraction. I began running workshops for clients within our store and soon opened a dedicated training space to run ‘skills for life’ programs and workshops for everyone.
The next logical step for me was to gain a formal qualification. After many years of running workshops and coaching people I was guided to attend university to study psychology. I had been working with a wide range of people but mostly with parents and their teenage children. My thinking at that stage was that studying psychology I might go and work in a school with at risk youth. I quickly realized thought that I would be a ‘last resort’ for these young people. By the time I got to work with them they would have been in trouble. I wanted to work on prevention rather than cure and the best way to do this was to give them skills that would help them be able to cope with whatever was going on in their life.
I kept learning everything I could about psychology, NLP, Gender, Culture, Neuroscience and the law of attraction. I worked alongside and learnt from some of the greatest teachers in the world including Dr John Demartini, John Assaraf, Brian Tracy, Jordan Belfort, Tony Robbins and Kerwin Rae. My quest for knowledge led me to create more and more workshops and eventually working as a leadership coach for AusAID with international scholars within Australia.
For most of that time, although highly educated by now, I still suffered from ‘Imposter Syndrome’ and constantly felt not good enough. I seemingly had it all…loving husband, great kid, successful business etc..and yet it didn’t make me happy. I was still trying to win the approval of others. I wanted to be liked, loved even. I was still to learn that my peace and true happiness would only come once I learned to love the girl in the mirror. This wasn’t a sudden thing. It was much more subtle and gradual. There wasn’t a single ‘aha’ moment where I suddenly realized my value. Rather it grew over time and through being coached and attending events by some of those greats in the personal development arena. The two key players for me would have been Oprah and Tony Robbins. They both really care and are curious about why we do what we do and, like me, had to overcome some traumas and life experiences that now allowed them to serve people from a whole range of different backgrounds and experiences.
In the last 6 years my focus has been on helping small business owners and start-ups to develop the confidence, skills and strategies to ensure their success. I've personally been involved in assisting over 60 start up businesses to develop a business and financial plan, implement those plans and navigate through their first year.
'Sherry has a wonderful way of making tasks seem easy, practical and do-able. After our session today I have a new sense of clarity as to how I will move forward in my business, and I am feeling more optimistic about my business than I have in weeks. It's really nice to talk to someone who just 'gets it' - I felt as though Sherry understood exactly what I needed from the start of the session. I'd like to thank Sherry for sharing her time with me and helping me move past some of the blocks that were holding me back in my business.'

After seeing Mum through her breast cancer (including 4 major operations) and supporting her physically, mentally and financially I was unsure how to move forward in life.
Even though Mum was in remission and things were looking good, my Inner Rhythm had lost its way.
I was stuck, I felt unable to make any decisions in my life and what was worse I didn't know why.
The only thing in my life I was certain about was the feeling that something desperately needed to change.
I had met Sherry on one occasion through an acquaintance and again to my surprise at a womens empowerment workshop, which my best friend had told me about. Sherry was running the workshop and everything she said spoke to me in volumes. For me this was a light bulb moment!
I grew more and more excited throughout the workshop because I knew Sherry was someone I wanted to work with and I knew she could help me break through my 'stuck' feeling.
In the very first personal session I had with Sherry - I had a major insight! In fact - all of my sessions with Sherry continued to produce major game changing insights. Sherry gave me the tools to change my internal Dialogue and make some corrections on my mud map of life and slowly but surely I could hear the drums of my internal Rhythm returning to me!!! How exciting.
Thankyou Sherry, I'm so greatful to have met and worked with you. On my journey of self awareness you truly have been a light house.
I would highly recommend Sherry to anyone! Especially those who are either on a path to self discovery or would simply like to reclaim/ rediscover their Inner Rhythm!

Want to know more?
I could bore you with the details of my background and experience. And I know for some people that is important. I'm not discounting all the skills and training I've had along the way. I would however like to point out that while they are valuable they will not be the reason you choose me as your coach or attend one of my workshops. What will bring us together to work on creating your magnificent life is probably something more obscure, more hidden, that 'gut feeling' that tells you I am the right person for you to work with.
I believe that the right people will come together at the right time to make things happen. For you it may be a search for a coach, an NLP trainer or a workshop that brings you either to this page or another. It usually works like this... you search, come across my details and get in touch. We chat either over the phone or in person and we both decide if we want to work together.
Anyway, if you want to know about what qualifies me to work with you I have listed those things below. If you want to know if we are a good fit get in touch either by phone or email and let's have a conversation. I offer a FREE 30 minute session so we can both be happy to work together. So, what do you have to lose?
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (+61) 412 966 851.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
