I’m Elle, a Social Coach who specialises in self growth and relationships. I give practical, meaningful and often very straight forward advise and life guidance. It’s not complex or filled with psychological terms only your therapist can understand, its’ real, sometimes a little blunt, and occasionally filled with swear words.
I am capable, determined, hardworking, kind, thoughtful, inquisitive, outgoing and friendly. I can be an effective unobtrusive leader, encouraging others to freely participate in projects, and am able competently extract information by asking relevant, non-threatening questions. It was the process of going under some ‘self-coaching’ that made me realise these strengths in myself and this lead to a realisation that I wanted to coach others.
What do I think makes me a good writer? Compared to the thousands of other profiles you will see on here, how am I able to convince you to read my articles. If I can effectively sell myself in 300 characters of less maybe? To show my ability be clear and concise without 'waffling' on? Or despite the fact that I am not a ‘professional writer or editor’ in anyway shape or form, but I can still write something that connects with an audience.
The need to interact, connect, provide value, and engage in discussion and collaboration with others is a vital part of what drives me to write and coach.
My skills as a writer come from a very different place. I’m an observer, a thinker, an analyser and a good listener. I write from these skills and my own experiences, and most importantly, I try and infuse value in the work I produce.
On a personal level, I thrive on the ability to just be me! I wear odd socks and watch cartoons. I still love Hello Kitty and get more excited over puppies than I do babies. I am unashamedly geeky and a complete nerd who is not afraid to laugh at my clumsy awkward nature…...believe me that took some personal growth! #lovewhoyouare. I am a socially forward introvert, so love people but I also need my independent space. But most importantly - I love to laugh, and I love to live.
