My coaching experience with Rachel was powerful, profound and transformative. It led me to a deep-rooted, deep-seated insight and understanding of myself that I carry with me each and every day. I am so appreciative of Rachel for the gentle yet skilful way in which she guided me towards my own truth. My soul feels a lot lighter as a result. The truth always sets us free! As a coach, Rachel has distinct wisdom and maturity, as well as a quiet strength and depth of insight, which inspires confidence and trust. Her steadfast, warm, gentle and receptive manner make one feel safe and supported even in the darkest of places. In addition to these qualities, Rachel has a genuine empathy, compassion and loving energy which are always tangible throughout every session. I have no doubt that, irrespective of the nature and complexity of issues that find their way into Rachel's coaching space, Rachel has the skill and ability to meet her clients exactly where they are at in order to bring about insight and healing. In my view, Rachel is an incredibly talented coach. She knows how to navigate the soul's landscape
I was referred to Rachel by a trusted friend when I was forced to make significant changes in my life, due to events in my career and business environment. I was not expecting those changes in my life at that stage and had to adapt rapidly and refocus a major portion of my business and personal life. I consulted Rachel and requested her to be my life coach along the way of adapting to these changes. I wanted someone with a proven track record of life skills and who could objectively guide me into addressing my challenges and accompany me on my journey into re-discovery and re-focus. I can gladly report that choosing Rachel as my life coach had turned out to be one of my better decisions. She coached me professionally through applying her unique and proven skills and techniques to become a better, newly focused and a much happier person. I acquired the ability to calmly manage major unavoidable changes in my life in a positive, spiritual way and in the process, I grew as a total person. I have discovered a new vision in my business life and have already implemented major positive actions into this environment. In addition, I have become involved in leadership positions in the society around me and I have found time and energy to pursue things I have a passion for, which I have always neglected in the past. The wheel of my life is much more balanced and as a person I have benefitted immensely in the process. I have the pleasure of recommending Rachel Wickwar to any person who has to deal with issues in his/her life and needs a professional, skilled and competent life coach in the process.
In the modern-day world, there are a lot of companies that start up with one-man tradesmen, they know their trade but they know nothing about business. It is such a HUGE pleasure and honour to have met you and to have started business couching with you. I have seen the turnaround in my business. The way you do your coaching is really, amazing. The whole experience, guidance, personal care of your customers and showing an interest, not just in the business but the person as well. Thank you for being not just another business coach, but a real friend and colleague! I do think that all business owners must have a personal business coach to guide them and their companies in a forward direction.
We as a company was very privileged to have had Rachel Wickwar from Phoenix Destinies lead our strategic planning session. We were looking for the correct person, willing and able to facilitate this session for several months, and was very pleased to have found Rachel (through one of her previous clients) to do this. From our first meeting, it was evident that she knew exactly what our needs were, and would be the correct person to lead such a session. What a successful day it was. As owner of a small Business enterprise, looking to expand the business into a full scale company, the session gave me new perspectives into what is really required to reach my goals. Rachel helped us to gain a clear understanding of where we are falling way short, and what strengths we might have to build on. Her way of presenting this session was interactive and to the point, and everyone could understand exactly what is required to go to the next level. We (myself) was left full of renewed ideas and a clear plan, on what our next step should be. I would strongly recommend Rachel to facilitate a work session for any company, and feel positive that what is taken out of this session, has the ability – if implemented – to take a company to new heights! Thank you Rachel, and I hope that we can further build on this initial session in the nearby future.
For the past four years Rachel from Phoenix Destinies has helped me become the individual, wife, mother and business owner I was meant to be. She has taken a broken, scattered brain individual that was all over the place and helped to centre and ground me. As my personal life coach she has empowered me to not be afraid any more. To be myself 100% and she has thought me how I can make myself happy irrespective of the curve balls life throws at you. The journey has been hard and there are many truths we do not care to admit to ourselves, but Rachel pushes through those walls and helps you not judge yourself, but accept the good and the bad and teaches you how to work with what you have. In a business capacity, Rachel has thought me the value of how to learn new things every day from every person you meet. By identifying my business strengths and weaknesses and being my accountability partner she has kept the business focused and on track to the point where the business is growing year on year not only in turnover, but in profit! Rachel keeps me focused, she keeps me grounded. The most successful people in the world has a trusted partner, confidant or coach. That is what Rachel has become for me and my business. She is the only investment I make in myself and my business every month that I know I will get three fold returns on.
