She has a wealth of knowledge and communicative skills acquired through her background in teaching Physical Education, Health and Personal Development to both adults and children across the public and private sectors for over 25 years.

Tracy is a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation, is the President of the International Coach Federation Australasian Chapter and is also a member of Sydney University’s Coaching and Mentoring Association.

Tracy is a certified Family Coach, having trained with Diana Sterling and completed the Advanced Coaching Course from the Academy for Family Coach Training in 2003.  She began using her new-found skills of Parent Coaching with her clients and found that it was having such an amazing effect on their relationships with their teenagers - in only a matter of weeks. Relationships that they thought were lost to years of tension and struggle soon became ones of love and joy. Their teenagers became more responsible, trusting and respectful and the parents began to enjoy their teenagers. 

Tracy was havng such a remarkable impact on families that she was asked to join the Relationship Coaching Institute with presenting the Conscious Relationships for Families Course and now partners with Diana Sterling as the worldwide Lead Trainer for the Parent, Teen and Family Coach Training Program. This work has enabled her to continue her passion in helping parents and teenagers create more fulfilling, harmonious relationships.

Tracy is also a mother of two boys 22 and 25 and an actively involved member of the local community. She has been coaching since 2001 and during this time found that many of her clients were frustrated and angry about their relationships with their teenage children. During her coaching sessions she worked on moving the parent-teenager relationship from conflict and opposition to encouragement and support. Tracy has been able to repair many of the relationships her clients had thought were doomed until the teenage years were over. Using the “Seven Ways to Coach Your Teen” R and the "Parent as Coach Approach"R has given parents a practical method of relating to their teenagers.

Tracy is currently coaching clients one-on-one and running workshop series for small groups of parents and the results have been outstanding.

One client writes:

The Parent Coaching course is not about 'how to be a better parent' it is about real life situations understanding that 'if we don’t change, nothing will change'! Thank you Tracy for assisting me with a better understanding of myself and the insight into the teen world. Every parent of teenagers would benefit from the content and practical guidelines of this course. Julie - 3 children (14, 12 & 12)
