Hi! I’m Linda, I help women who feel frustrated, overwhelmed & trapped in their life, transition to taking CHARGE of their life, MANAGING the change they are experiencing and BUILD SELF-RELIANCE so they can move into the next phase of their life - with confidence, happiness and empowerment.
There’s a reason you’ve landed here now, and I’m thinking it’s one of these…
You’re stuck and frustrated, giving everything you’ve got but getting nowhere
You’re exhausted and overwhelmed by life’s demands with nothing left to replenish yourself
You can see the life you truly desire but you’re unsure how to get there
Something tells you there’s more to life and you’re ready to find out exactly what
What if someone could show you how to achieve your dreams? What if someone could help you overcome your limiting beliefs? What if someone could teach you how to be guided by your intuition and always make the right choices for you?
That someone is me.
I’m Linda. I help women – phenomenal women just like you – access their inner wisdom to achieve their greatest potential. Through lifestyle coaching, I help women explore and understand their motivations and beliefs to live life at the top of their game.
There’s a reason the world’s outstanding athletes and high achievers have coaches. Great coaches provide structure, a targeted approach and ways of thinking to catapult us far beyond our self-imposed limitations.
With the right tools, techniques and methodologies there are no limits to where you can go or what you can do.
If you’re committed to changing, growing and seeing your dreams come true then success is on the horizon. Are you ready to uncover your true greatness, peel back the layers and figure out what you’re really here to do?
If you want to discover your best self and become the phenomenal woman you truly are, follow me to the About page to find out more.
Before I came to see Linda I felt full of despair and lacking direction. In spite of being a very positive person, and doing everything I could to move on in a happy and fulfilling way in my life, nothing was working. Now this will sound odd but I knew that I had to find out what I didn’t know. There had to be something else out there that wasn’t counselling and the myriad of other options we see available. Something that would affect the very core of my being in this world. And that is what you have provided Linda. I’m so eternally grateful to you. I liken the process of creating change with you to “polishing a window”. The more you work at it the more is revealed and the best and brightest of opportunities and happiness come in. You have to be totally honest with yourself through the process and what you discover, or rediscover in your life is quite magical. One of the most precious things I have back is that joy of waking to a new day full of optimism. Not tiredness, not feeling worn down but, great, a new day, what will it bring? How right you are. Everything can change.
I met Linda at a women’s networking group where she gave a short presentation about core beliefs and got us to do an exercise.
There was something about her energy and approach, for about the following 2 months I kept thinking, “I really must contact Linda.” Finally I did, and I’m so glad I made that decision.
Our first session was a real eye-opener. It helped me step back and see where I was and that I’d actually got a bit stuck – and I hadn’t really even realised it. It also made me recognise that my coping mechanisms when things went wrong (like dissolving at a technical hitch) weren’t particularly effective and that there were better ways to handle things.
Linda set me small, manageable tasks to achieve each week and they really got me unstuck, got me to make progress in the direction I wanted to. And it was great to go back to her each week and gauge the improvement.
And most importantly we always had such a laugh in the process. Part of me thought that coaching might be a bit of a drag (that was before we’d started) but it soon became a highlight of my week! Linda has a great energy. I felt very comfortable with her, even when I became emotional (I fought it, it happened anyway and with Linda it was totally fine).
Before our first session together I considered myself a strong, independent woman. But the sessions uncovered that there was an undercurrent of fear running the show. Working with Linda gave me insights into all of this. Contacting Linda set me onto a road of better self-understanding. Our work together lay the foundations for continual, gradual and gentle but effective self-development.
I would recommend Linda to anyone who might be stuck and needs a helping hand, anyone who wants clarity around their goals and how to achieve them, or anyone who is feeling a bit lost about who they are or where their path is leading them.
Linda, you’re a legend. Thank you for sharing your gifts.
Prior to commencing my coaching experience with Linda I would say that I was not assertive enough with my personal life and at work. I did not have self-confidence with the way I feel and look.
As a result of my coaching I feel as though I am more assertive with my personal life and more positive and stronger in approaching issues that arise.
As a result of working with Linda Harrington I feel more confident with day to day “stuff”.
Linda is a pleasure and easy to work with and gave me the support and more confidence that I needed. I would recommend Linda to anyone or company that would be interested in looking at life coaching as an option.
At the time of my coaching sessions, I had just completed a successful first year of a degree towards my new career. However, I was also feeling frustrated stuck in my current job, in an entirely different industry and not enjoying the work. There are several challenges at work including a negative and aggressive work colleague, an overly controlling boss and disorganised management.
Linda Harrington’s coaching helped me realise my worth and encouraged me to look for a new job, refreshing my CV and just look around at what might be available so that I can change my current work situation.
Linda also encouraged me to delve deeper into my new career and even though finishing my degree is still 5 years away, to explore industry association memberships so that I may increase networking opportunities. She encouraged me to start making contacts that will be beneficial to my new career when the time comes to look for a job.
Linda gave me some techniques to use at work to get through my day to day so that the negativity and other aspects do not affect me. I’m finding these really useful and am now working on strategies towards long term changes that I may be able to make in my current role. I have also found a job online that I will be applying for that is more in line with my new career.
As a result of working with Linda Harrington, I feel more hopeful about my current situation and my future.
I would recommend Linda Harrington to anyone who needs a push to get out of a rut or make a life change that they are nervous about.
I can’t thank you both* enough for sharing your inspiring wisdom, insights and tools. It was a great honour to share an incredible couple of days with some extraordinarily beautiful and inspiring souls.
I have come away from your workshop feeling positive, empowered and uplifted and with plenty to think about and action over the coming weeks and months.

Not sure what to expect before meeting with Linda, we caught up to run through my EDISC profile. I was blown away with the accuracy of the profile it was as if Linda was reading a book just about me, but I was also very impressed with how Linda advised me how I can implement changes in both my work and social life based on the results.
After implementing the changes Linda recommended in my current sales role my sales increased I walk away with a pay rise and a bonus.
But it did not stop there. I also used the information to help gain my new role as a Sales Trainer. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone or organisation wanting to implement successful change either personally and professionally.
Shannon, Sales Trainer
Before I started life coaching with Linda I was not fulfilled or fully happy. I was full of worry, doubt, uncertainty and my mind was constantly on the go with negative thoughts and caution.
Particular situations would have me filled with constant insecurity. Even making a decision as simple as what to have for dinner from a menu would be difficult. I was uncomfortable to be myself and speak my own mind and opinions if I feared that it would not match a colleagues or friends thoughts or opinions.
Since starting life coaching with Linda, I am a completely different person, emotionally, physically and professionally. Many techniques that I have gained have made a huge difference to my day to day life and behaviours.
After realising that the way you physically present yourself is a huge part of how a person perceives you and not actually just your communication skills, I am relaxed, confident and certain of myself. I stand with good posture, I don’t fidget and I smile!
As a result of working with Linda I am happy! I could list a huge range of feelings since life coaching but most of all my mind is clear. I have time to think of other things, I’m no longer worrying or doubting for hours on end!
I would recommend Linda to anyone who is currently in a similar situation to how I was. I think if you desire positivity, confidence and certainty you would hugely benefit life coaching with Linda.She is extremely kind and fun, she enables you to relax and I never felt embarrassed.
I looked forward to our sessions each week and when the session was over I would find myself in a better place and each time I’m sure I platformed up a level to my goal. Linda is totally committed and most of all fun!
I was unhappy in my work and personal life. I was constantly stressed, overwhelmed, upset and angry due to work. It was then affecting my personal life as I always thought and spoke about work outside of office hours. I also struggled to handle discussions/situations in my personal life.
The coaching sessions have:
-Taught me to value, acknowledge and know myself
-Shown me that I have many positive aspects in my life to be grateful for. This in turn has helped me put into perspective the stresses in my life
-Taught me to focus on overcoming challenges with a positive and practical view both at work and in my personal life
-Raised my awareness of how my attitude/persona/energy affects others around me Taught me simple yet effective tools to help alleviate stresses in my life
As a result of working with Linda, I now feel happier and confident within myself. I am now excited about life in general.
The coaching sessions have enriched my life. I would recommend Linda to anyone who wants to improve all aspect of his or her life. I have already recommended Linda to a friend of mine.
In a former life I worked for a large international company who provided a great deal of ongoing training and support. In the past 15 years I have established and managed a number of successful small businesses. Anyone who has owned a small business knows how much there is to do and how little time there is in which to do it.
It wasn’t until I started working with Linda I realised how much I missed and needed the support of not only professional development training, but personal development training – working on myself first and foremost to be a better manager, parent & partner.
Linda has really helped me to focus on myself again and work towards the things that really matter instead of being dragged along with the busyness of work & family life.
I feel that working with Linda has helped me grow as an individual and has and is really making a difference in the life I now see for myself.
You Know It All Already. Really!
“Everything you need is within you right now.”
Maybe you don’t realise the capabilities you have inside. The truth is you’re infinitely strong and capable. Through coaching I help you access your inner knowing and bring the answers to your conscious mind.
Whatever you want to achieve in any area of your life, my goal is to help you achieve it. Together we shine the spotlight in the corners of your mind, on your forgotten dreams, all you wanted but thought you couldn’t have.
Together we move from past to future. I will help you let go of your limitations so you can walk easily into the life you dream for yourself.
You can only connect with yourself when you’re comfortable with who you are.
Becoming comfortable with who you are takes understanding. When you know why you do what you do, you can easily remove limiting beliefs and achieve anything you desire! Then you’ll realise just how amazing you are.
You might be wondering about who I am, so here’s a little about my journey from international business woman to business owner to change coach.
Why do we do what we do? My interest in this question began with a life changing event that made me look at why I behaved as I did.
In my 20s I was climbing the ladder, working for a multinational with over 6,000 employees. My success was noticed and selection to New York followed. While I was living there, the Twin Towers were tragically attacked.
It was as if there’d been a nuclear war. There was so much emotion swirling around and people reacting in all different ways but we had to carry on as normal. You can’t go through something like that and not be affected.
For me a seed was planted – I wondered why people responded so differently, what shaped their beliefs and attitudes.
I looked at my life choices more deeply too. My corporate life was glamourous but lacking. I decided to return to Australia and no longer do things ‘just for the sake of it’.
My life changed dramatically as a result.
Inspired by early and modern day philosophers and teachers I read everything I could find! This exploration took a twist I didn’t expect when I began learning how to listen to my intuition or ‘gut feeling’, tuning into the ever present knowledge and understanding, learning the implications of energy and vibrations.
I learnt that the Universe can’t help you if you’re not willing to help yourself. You have to be willing to put in some work. It works with you, not for you.
Helping people connect with their own intuition has become central in my work. All the answers we need are within us and when we truly know ourselves, decisions are easy.
After years of study I decided to back myself and begin coaching. Today I’m a mother of 3, run a small business and run my coaching practice for Australian and International clients.
It all happens when you believe in yourself and follow your dreams!
There’s greatness in us all, sometimes we just need a little help in letting it out. My gift is helping people connect to themselves. Everything we need is within.
All my work comes from the heart. I believe in my clients – it’s about having fun and building trust so clients are completely at ease. That’s when we get results.
I have decades of practical experience including corporate multinational and small business, as well as abundant life experience. These things complement my coaching technique and help me understand where many of my clients find themselves.
Life has so much to offer. I love helping people achieve outcomes they never dreamed possible, helping them join the dots in their life so they have an ‘Ah-Ha’ moment. It’s indescribable.

Used since 1994 in over 50 countries and by millions of people, EDISC is a leading self-assessment tool that helps improve productivity, team work and communication. EDISC helps individuals identify their behavioural style. Ideal for work relationships including leadership positions and teams, EDISC results in a better understanding of others. It creates room for open discussion about behaviour and provides opportunities to adapt to avoid misunderstanding and tension.
When your employees perform better, so does your business.
EDISC provides the knowledge that individuals need to extend their performance from good to great, to adjust and be more effective in any situation. Properly applied EDISC helps create a happier, more harmonious and more productive work environment.
Breaking down EDISC…
Moving behaviour from good to great
Results oriented action takers who challenge the status quo
Enthusiastic, collaborative action takers
Supporters who enjoy collaboration and stability
Accurate challenge takers who enjoy stability
With EDISC you can harness everyone’s unique talents.
By assessing the conscious and unconscious self, EDISC highlights the individual’s natural strengths as well as where they need support. This gives you deep insight into what drives each employee – do they come to work for money, recognition, appreciation, promotion, relationships? This knowledge helps you meet employee expectations, as well as your own. For example, where someone is not performing well in a role you can work with them to identify either the specific support they need, or a different role where they’ll be more naturally suited. EDISC also illuminates what your employees fear. This is valuable for dealing with difficult individuals as it’s often a deep-seated fear that causes difficult behaviour.
EDISC supports teams.
A successful team is like a chain with no weak links – there’s camaraderie, support, cooperation, thoughtfulness. EDISC can help you identify the right people to create the strong team you need.
EDISC helps create a happier, more harmonious and more productive work environment.
If you’re building a team for a specific goal EDISC can help in team member choices by highlighting the behaviour types that work well together based on their communication and decision making styles.
EDISC uncovers what motivates people in your organisation and what reduces their motivation.
When it comes to performance management EDISC can help identify the specific problem. Let’s say a sales target was 10% but you’re at 2%… EDISC illuminates the stuck point.
The work environment can enhance productivity or distract from it. EDISC helps you understand how this works for people in your organisation.
EDISC can help with personnel management including employing the right person for the job or identifying employees under excess stress.
