Asking the right questions

‘I came to see Ishara without really knowing exactly what I was seeking. As a young woman who hopes to work with women and walk beside them in their journeys towards motherhood I felt as though something was holding me back, but I wasn’t sure what! Confidence? Knowledge? Turns out the answer was hiding not as deep inside me as I thought… Ishara knew what questions I needed to ask myself and worked to assist me to discover the tools I need to move forward and heal myself. If you would love some guidance, even if you aren’t quite sure why you’ve felt a pull to see Ishara, do yourself a loving favour and make that call.’

Light, free and unencumbered!

Having known Ishara for many years I knew she would be warm and genuine but I had no idea what to expect from an individual session.

Ishara quickly put me at ease and I found it simple to drop into a space of relaxation and calm. She was intuitive and knew which questions to ask in order to focus my attention and increase my awareness. I left feeling light, free and unencumbered! I was amazed how my way of thinking had changed with just one meeting.

Opportunities for healing

I came to see Ishara for the first time at the beginning of my pregnancy. At the time, I was feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of having another child for so many reasons, some of which I was aware of and for some reasons that I was unaware of at the time. The anxiety and worry prompted me to look for help and guidance.

I was aware that this pregnancy and upcoming birth was bringing me massive opportunities to heal my own birth traumas, my own time in my mother’s womb, and my own childhood. I wanted to make the most of this opportunity to heal this deep wounding. I started a search to find a therapist/counsellor that addressed pregnancy as a time of transition and healing, and who could guide me through this with no judgement and in a sensitive and productive way. Eventually, I came across Ishara’s website and she ticked all the marks so I began my sessions with her.

Throughout the sessions, I find Ishara to be a unique, intuitive, sensitive and experienced guide. She helps me to see that it’s ok to feel how I feel, and she makes the exploration of my wounded internal world a fascinating and eventful experience. Yes, I feel those deep hurt places, but the combination of my courage to go there, and Ishara’s knowledge of how to go there in a sensitive and safe way, makes those journeys and revelations so amazing. I cannot imagine having gone through my pregnancy without her sessions.

I would highly recommend Ishara to women who are feeling overwhelmed by pregnancy, and to women in general, especially those going through periods of transition because I feel that these are the times when many opportunities for healing come. I am so glad that I have made the most of this pregnancy to heal places that I would otherwise have found difficult to touch. So thank you so much to Ishara for helping me to go there.’

Reclaiming happiness – Paula’s story

When I first meet Ishara, I was in a desperate time in my life. I had tried IVF 2 times without success and I was very unhappy with my life.

Over the years I have read many self help books, but none of them helped me to identify the real causes of my unhappiness.  After a couple of coaching sessions with Ishara, I came to look hard and deep within me for some answers.  I realised that I had been harbouring, not just a little, but sometimes a lot of resentment and bitterness, towards someone, something, and even myself.

In my sessions with Ishara I found a safe, supported place to experience all the feelings that I have had for many years, but did not want to experience because the pain was too big.  These feelings were preventing me from achieving things I wanted in my life, through the emotional blocks I had created, and the limiting beliefs I had instilled in myself much earlier in my life.   The coaching process helped me to understand on a much deeper level that part of being happy is creating and allowing the ability to let go of the things we have been burdening ourselves with for years!  I came to truly understand that forgiveness is vital if you are looking for peace, health, freedom, and happiness.

If I had not met Ishara, I would have continued to move through life without living it. Today I allow myself to feel all my feelings and live my life to the full.

Over the course of six coaching sessions, I came to understand that forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting or condoning what that person has done.  It’s an act of self-interest where we can let go, so we can move on, and allow the wonderful, loving and healthy things to show up in our lives.  My life coaching sessions have given me the place and the ability to achieve forgiveness and have helped me to let go.

At the beginning I could not talk about pregnancy or motherhood, nor have a really good relationship with my own mother.

I am currently working on healing my relationship with my mother. At present my mother and I are having the best relationship that we have had for the last 14 years. And regarding my motherhood: I am loving life, looking inside of myself for how I am before I take further steps toward becoming a mother myself.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ishara  for showing me the way to change my life.

I would like to give testimony on the changes and progress my sister made while attending the life
coaching session with Ishara. It has being amazing to see how much my sister has progress and
the most amazing attitude towards people and life she acquired. I found that her relationship with
our mother has improved so much, it has created a more loving and compassionate relationship
between them both. Paula’s ability to relax and take situations as well as people as they are, blows
me away every time. She has found a way where she let go of so much clutter our life has led us
to have and found freedom and happiness in her life. I love the way she now speaks with so much
kindness and love towards people in her life. I am so proud of my sister for having done this for
herself and having found someone to help her so much.

Second baby on the way

When we began, what I wanted from my coaching sessions was to answer “How do I manage with a toddler and a new baby?” Ishara coached me to create an intention that went beyond just “managing” to having a “relaxed, joyful, loving first six months, feeling nurtured and supported…” The overall theme that emerged from my sessions was to “trust my instincts” which was very reassuring for a new mum.

I found Ishara to be a highly insightful coach who used her finely tuned listening and intuition to discover the underlying emotion behind what I brought to each coaching session. She also asked incredibly perceptive questions which allowed me to discover the bigger picture behind what I needed or looked to create.

I had six one-hour coaching sessions with Ishara, including both face-to-face and telephone coaching. The outcome from each session ranged from the very practical (e.g. have a discussion with my husband), to the personal (e.g. prioritise self-care), to the spiritual (e.g. create a ritual), and inspiring (e.g. be brave, independent and follow my impulse). Ishara handled my heightened post-birth emotions with gentleness and grace, and I felt very comfortable shedding a few tears during our coaching sessions.

She was also great at redirecting my toddler and settling my newborn in order for my coaching sessions to continue. I would highly recommend coaching sessions with Ishara, especially to women who are facing major life changes, such as pregnancy, birth and having a new baby.

Getting in touch with inner wisdom

I suffered a lot of anger, low self esteem and body image distortion. One of my coping mechanisms over the years, ironically, has been to appear, confident, strong and fiercely independent. A very masculine approach.  November last year an incident on what was supposed to be a relaxing get away with my partner, highlighted that I need to resolve this once and for all.

I began a search on the internet. I was aware I had all the wisdom inside me and needed someone who could work with that. That’s when I came across one of Ishara’s websites. It mentioned the inner/creative/spiritual life feeling a little stuck, stagnant or neglected. And the concept of spiritual companionship. ‘Rather than providing answers to the questions or issues which concern you, Ishara will join you in sitting attentively with them to see where they may lead.’ This felt so very right.

I contacted Ishara and within the day we had arranged an appointment for the next week.

My first meeting with Ishara was on a hot summer day after work. I left work, from the city straight into peak hour traffic jams and I got every red light. With my stress levels high, my chattering mind was telling me that all the red lights were telling me that I was on the wrong path and I began to worry about whether I was doing the right thing, finding someone on the net and then going to their home to reveal myself. I began to feel quite exposed and I hadn’t even arrived.

But when I arrived, Ishara met me out the front and invited me into a caravan parked out the front of her home. It was beautiful inside! Immediately I was calmed by the soft aromas of incense and essential oils but most of all Ishara’s tranquil and gentle demeanor.  That first hour with Ishara made more impact on me that anything had for a long time. Her ability to be truly present inspired me to do the same. She was clearly so in tune with her intuition, exuding a quiet but powerful wisdom. What captured me about Ishara was her ability to guide me to find the answer within and suggesting pathways that may enhance my growth. I walked out of there that day feeling totally empowered.

Since that day, I have seen Ishara at least monthly. The changes this year have been phenomenal. More powerful than I ever could have imagined.  I have taken steps toward change & improvement that I never would have taken without Ishara’s guidance, which has helped me step into the role of helping women step into their best selves.

I highly recommend any woman who wants to enhance her growth, committing herself to the process Ishara takes you through.
