It’s time for a new adventure.

Because, let’s be honest -

you know you can only entertain this boredom and stuckness and lack of clarity for so long… 

And what if what you’re feeling is, actually, the portal to the next iteration of you? 

What if, rather than resist these feelings, you journeyed through them

Who might you be when you emerge on the other side? 

I’m Vari and for the past 6 years, I've been honoured to help folks just like you, find their way to freedom.

This is often a subtractive process, not an additive one.


  • If you finally gave yourself sweet permission to change your mind, to take a new stance?

  • If you gradually learned to recognise and trust your sparks of inspiration without polling your friends and family for their opinion or approval?

  • If you had safe ground to explore what’s next for you?

  • If you reoriented yourself towards what felt more alive, more joyful, more YOU?

In this 3 month private mentoring program we...

edit, design and direct

This emerging season for you - with more

joy, freedom and peace

This is designed for folks who are tired of hearing how 'lucky' they are (yes, this is true) but who secretly feel empty and terrified that this is as good as it gets.

With me by your side, you’ll discover:

  • What aspects of your life need to dissolve and what needs more love and attention

  • Daily practices and tools to stay on course and avoid rebounding back to what’s familiar

  • Tools to cultivate an impeccable self-opinion (releasing you from the need to get others permission or approval)

  • Strategies to overcome doubt and overwhelm

  • Practical exercises to shift your energy and get back into alignment

Together, we’ll explore how to:

Edit your life of the ‘handbrakes’ and habits that are keeping you stuck.

Design a vision for the future that is greater than the past.

Direct your days in a heart-minded way that’s all love.

I don’t subscribe to the idea of creating a formula or a one-size-fits-all program.

I’ve tried to fit the mould in many ways in my own life and it’s never worked.

This is about a gentle shedding of what’s no longer working and a reorientation toward more of what you crave.

Quick fixes and life hacks don’t work.

At best they create temporary relief but inevitably have you defaulting back to how life was before.

I’m all for the sustainable, gradual, intentional navigating of our own lives.

I believe we are all self-responsible adults who can decide what’s best. 

We can blaze a bright and new path.

We don’t need to follow others.

We might just need some guidance to help uncover our path and to cultivate the courage to take action.

This work is about rebellious individuality
in a social media sea of prescriptive sameness.

By the end of our time together,
you will have:

  • Edited your heart, brain and schedule of obligations and outdated goals

  • Transformed your Habits of Resistance into Rituals of Renewal

  • Clarified who you want to show up as in this next phase of life

  • Created a personal structure that enables more freedom and spontaneity

  • Weeded your life of what depletes and sewn seed of what energises

You’ll emerge with a deep sense of contentment about the magical simplicity of your days as your life unfolds with unshakable optimism and eagerness.

Mentoring with me is perfect for you if:

  • you’re a parent and feel like you’ve lost a little (or a lot) of who YOU are

You used to be someone who was spontaneous and up for any adventure, but the responsibility of parenthood leaves that life a quickly fading memory.

  • you’re at a crossroads of wondering what’s next…

You’ve lived some life, ticked off a few big goals, created a pretty nice life but what now? You lie awake at night wondering if this is all there is…

  • you know your life is good, but you crave more

You’re someone who’s grateful for what you have, but, if you’re completely honest, it’s just not enough. You want a deeper, richer, more textured life.

Hey there, I’m Vari

I'm a mentor, coach and wayfinder for folks who are ready to leave behind what is good and move towards more of what is great.

In my early 30’s I found myself in the perfect life.

The exact life that I’d planned for and had executed with precision.

  • a 10 year marriage to a good guy

  • 2 healthy boys

  • a 4 bedroom family home by the beach

  • an established graphic design business that was growing steadily

  • the cars, the holidays, the social life…

All this… and I was the loneliest and unhappiest I’d ever felt.

It was an overwhelming and confronting time. I thought I was losing my mind, or perhaps I was just a narcissistic sociopath.

I tried to convince myself that it was just a phase and that I simply needed to get that gratitude journal out and be more appreciative.

After all, there were so many people who would truly love this life.

Everyday I was reminded by people of how lucky I was.

Yet I felt anything but.

Trapped in a perfect life with no clue where to turn or what to do next.

Bit my bit, I began to gradually reorient myself towards what felt good, over what looked good.

I learned how to trust myself.

I created space to explore more of what caught my attention and to be less distracted by the minutiae of life.

I started to care more about how I felt over what others thought.

Over the last 6 years, I’ve coached and mentored folk who are where I was - stuck in the ‘messy middle’ that feels both overwhelming and underwhelming, often in the same moment.

Together we... 

carve out some space to quieten the opinions of the outside world - family, friends, culture - then we begin to unravel the beliefs and thought patterns that are keeping them stuck, then from a place of spaciousness and inspiration begin on a new path, one step at a time.

From the very first session, I knew I'd made the right decision.

I've always been good at setting goals but the processes that Vari teaches sets a solid foundation that makes anything achievable! 

My life was good before, but now I have the tools to make it great.

The way Vari's mind works is brilliant, she goes above and beyond for you and she’s just all-round loveable at the same time.

Vari has this way of suggesting new ways of doing things that I hadn’t considered which I found to be very exciting and useful!

Working within the structure that Vari teaches, I've created so much more spaciousness in my life and my business.

There's so much more flow and excitement without the hustle and grind.

Structure creates freedom.

This framework is so important.

When I use the tools Vari teaches everything in my life runs so much more smoothly.

Having a structure to follow stops me from feeling overwhelmed as I juggle full time work, a new business and family.

Vari is not afraid to challenge how you think and she asks difficult questions. But in an incredibly compassionate way.

This work with Vari has cured me of a lifetime of perfectionism and procrastination. My life truly has gone from good to great.

The total cost for 3 months of private mentoring with me is $3,000 AUD.

You can either pay in full or with 2 payments at no extra cost.

How often are the coaching sessions?
We have a 45 min session each week for 12 weeks. These sessions are held via Zoom and are recorded for you to relisten to later if you choose.

Are all sessions online?
Yes - all sessions are online. I’m not always in the same place and so to create simplicity for us both we meet online from wherever we are in the world.

Is there any ‘homework’?
This is not a set program. I tailor our session specifically for you. There’s no ‘homework’ as such but I will often offer you some resources, practices or journal prompts to support and deepen our work together.

Is there a community element, like a FB group I need to join?
No - this is exclusively private mentoring. There is no networking or collaborating. This is you and me, together, untangling some threads and weaving something beautiful together.

How much time do I need to invest each week?
On top of our 45 min Zoom call, ideally you would have 1-2 hours per week to do your own self study and reflection. I recommend a short daily journal practice and meditation. During our time together, we will be setting intentions around what you want to invite more of into your life, so you will most likely feel inspired to invest time to explore these new pathways. 

I’m about to have a baby / move house / change jobs - should I wait?
It’s entirely up to you. Some clients like to use our time together to get intentional about these new beginnings that are already underway, and to navigate them with more ease and flow.

What if I’ve no idea what I want to do with my life!?
Then I say, let’s get started! You don’t have to bring anything to our session. I will guide you to create space and together we can explore possibilities and potentials. You don’t have to know what you want to do with your life. You just have to have a nudge towards something different than what currently exists.


I’d like to remind you that:

You don’t have to settle for less than what you want.

You can appreciate all that is good in your life… and still want more.

Imagine a life that embraces simplicity, one that finds joy in the ordinary, one that refuses to be contained by the status quo and instead gives you permission to explore the edges of what’s possible and beyond.

Imagine a life that didn’t require you to escape but one that felt like home, even in the intense and difficult seasons of life.

More joy.
More freedom.
More peace. 

You don’t have to have it all figured out right now.

That’s what we’ll do together.

All you have to do is start.

One small step at a time.
