The Art of Conscious Conversation

A conscious conversation creates a safe space for you to share what really matters. It offers an opportunity to be seen and heard, allowing deeper connections to form, and a greater sense of belonging and wholeness. This is a learned art based in the awareness of what wants to emerge.

We will practice letting curiosity lead you across the bridge from your own island into the shared space by...

~ Listening carefully to your instinct
~ Speaking from your heart
~ Contemplating what your co-conversationalist is saying
~ Using open questions to go deeper
~ Opening to what wants to emerge
~ Having challenging conversations with grace

This one day workshop will help you to follow your curiosity in the other, and gently coax you into opening up, inviting you to bring your full authentic self to the table.

“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.” - Brene Brown

Everyone contains a gift of magic for you… if only you would ask the right questions.


"Thea is very intuitive and direct. She has a great gift in nurturing self expression in a dynamic and amazingly speedy way!"

- Helena, Previous coaching participant

“It completely erased the nerves. I channelled the nerves into the energy of how I wanted to be, and not the fear of what could go wrong.”

– Katie, Founder, Beyond Business

“What’s great about Thea is that she doesn’t say “here’s how you’re going to do that”. She actually gives you the exercise so that you discover your own path there. And then it’s just like you know how to do it.”

– Rob, Leadership Coach, Somekind
