My mission is to support individuals and couples in stepping into the highest version of themselves. Holding the space for you to get clear on your gifts and your strongest desires, understanding and clearing the stories and limiting beliefs that you've created, and choose heart centred goals that are in alignment with your souls essence.
I'm an international certified life coach and have apprenticed with some of the best coaches, mentors, and shamans from around the world. I am committed to a path of personal growth and development because I have seen first hand how it's impacted my life in ways I could have never dreamed and I want to share that with you.
I'm Derek, I choose to live life with intention every day. To be more fulfilled, purpose-driven, joyful and abundant, and in the NOW. I'm passionate about authentic connection, personal development, being creative, nature and sustainability, nourishing my body, and the list goes on really, so I'll stop there.
My partner, Jeff, and I have experienced many highs and lows throughout our 10+ years together. Choosing to be in a relationship is a choice, one that brings me the most beautiful, joyful, and connecting experiences, and one that mirrors the hell out of me and forces me to be seen when I just want to hide. But I make a choice every day to love him and to be together.
We've called upon support from mentors and coaches on our journey together and they helped us to gain new perspectives, shed old stories, and create new agreements that have allowed us to thrive for so long. Their support and perspectives were game changers in truly understanding each other, and ourselves for that matter.
I started my coaching path in 2014 while living in Toronto and then decided it was time to move back to B.C. where we came from. Back to nature, close to family and a simpler way of life.
Once Jeff & I moved to beautiful Victoria B.C, I opened a business called Horror Escape. I know, a relationship and abundance coach that owns a horror attraction. Doesn't seem like they fit together do they? Well the truth is, we create whatever life we want to, and I did just that!
Now I have a successful business that allows me to express myself creatively, and I get to be of service to my clients which honours the side of me that desires to be of service to others. I've had to master time blocking and vision setting my week to have success in both of my ventures, but I have the best of both worlds and I'm able to express myself in my truest forms.
It's building and running a business that lead me to know that abundance is a key part of my mission. Helping my tribe and my clients understand that they can have whatever life they dream of. There really isn't any cap on what amount of money you can make or any limitations of what you can create in your life. When I talk about abundance, I mean in all senses, not just money but in health and joy, relationships, and free time.
I have created everything I could have dreamt of and I continue to do so as I feel inspired to take action. I'm passionate about helping others manifest their deepest desires and shareing the practices that have allowed me to thrive.
