“It does not interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away”

The Invitation (Oriah Mountain Dreamer).

Core values are at the very core of you, your preferences and priorities, what matters most. Those things that indeed do sustain you ‘when all else falls away’.

Values are not right or wrong.  They are not moral judgments.  They are simply what matters to you most.  There is no list of things that should be on your values list.   

When you define very clearly what your values are (which is a little more complicated than it sounds), you can then learn to create a life aligned to them. When you are aligned with what you value, you are happier and more productive. We have had the pleasure of guiding several hundred people through this process in the last 10 years or so.

What never fails to surprise me is how unclear people actually are on their values or even what values are (versus say morals or ethics). For almost everyone that has gone through this process, there is at least one pretty significant ah-huh moment. Many have described it as life-changing.

Taking a few hours to do the values process will provide you with a foundation for making important decisions as well as small day-to-day ones.

You can choose to do this process one-on-one from one of the packages below. Or Women can do it with friends via our Women-In-Transition Workshops. Alternatively, you can start the process on your own by downloading the free book.

People facing a major decision (usually about a career or relationship) find the values process and some decision-making tools are enough you can get this from the Seed package or the Women-In-Transition workshops. Those looking to change habits to move their life more in balance, prefer one of the more involved packages.

A Little About Your Coach

I never really set out to be a personal coach. I was an executive coaching and consultant.  I seemed to be that go-to-person to talk to.  The person people would say ‘oh you must talk to Rachel’. I also know a thing or two about the challenge of living a values-based life of purpose and challenge. One of my core values is wellbeing, which was directly related to me doing a PhD in wellbeing for fun. However, my wellbeing core value is very challenging to manage given I live with endometriosis, Painful Bladder Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, an autonomic nervous system dysfunction, a heart arrhythmia, generalized anxiety and emetophobia (that’s a fear of vomiting, pretty rough when I have experienced many years of chronic nausea).

Dr Rachel McInnes

Although my health is currently stable – I’m not going to terrify you with my perfect seemingly unattainable hot yoga and green smoothies at dawn approach to life. I prefer pizza and chardonnay. I am happy, I like my life and I am proud of it – I am still a work in progress, I am far from perfect. 

You can get a sense of me from one of my podcast appearances.
