All the workshops and courses are designed to rediscover the most authentic, wise and most incredible you. I will show you how to maximise this real self and confidently share it with the world. It is so easy to compare ourselves to other people, wishing that we were better, more talented, more beautiful, intelligent.  Art & Living promotes 'being yourself and loving it'. I believe it is essential to realise, accept and enjoy being who you are, rather than focusing on who and what you are not.

 Bridging the Divide

Mother & Daughter Weekend Workshop 2020


Bridging the Divide isn't always easy... 

 When the Mother and Daughter relationship isn't working well,

it's just another thing to get in the way of self worth for both of you.


Research shows that there is a strong correlation between

effective relationships and personal happiness.


But just because you're not communicating,

it doesn't mean that you're broken!

It just means it is time for a shift in perspective

and an opportunity to take back your power

in the most positive way!


Life Coaching EMPOWERS people to handle

whatever life throws at them and life does that!


Nancy and Nenah are the perfect coaching duo to help navigate

the teenage years and find a middle ground where you can both 

see eye to eye.


Doodle, write and draw while you learn about love languages,

personality types, mirror work and a great deal more.


Come alone, with your friends, or with your Mother or Daughter.


Get involved or watch quietly from the back.


This workshop is rich, delicious and easy to digest!


What's in it for me?

Gain a better understanding what is going on.

Become aware of destructive patterns of blame, expectations and assumptions.

Develop self-respect, compassion and an easier communication style.

Create powerful new boundaries, and gain whole new way of supporting each other.

Have an epic time!


As our children get older, the relationship shifts from one of dependence to one of independence and .this can be a difficult transition for both parties. New agreements must be made, and new ways to communicate must be formed.

Navigating the mother/daughter relationship can be confusing and overwhelming but also joyful and surprising in the best possible way.

The thing we all want, whether we realise it or not, is to feel heard, supported and loved. You also don’t have to have a broken relationship in order to strengthen it! 

This unique and powerful course is designed to help both mothers and their teenage daughters develop stronger methods of communication by giving them the tools to build more trust and more respect on both sides and have fun while doing it!

 This valuable  weekend workshop is designed to allow mothers and daughters to navigate their changing relationship. The focus is on addressing current needs from both sides of the fence, and hearing those needs. Opening the lines of communication and building trust & respect within the relationship.


Take home a  workbook packed full of resources, and most importantly, plenty of brilliant communication tools for your relationship - it's great value, two fabulous days with two awesome coaches!

Meet Nenah Milne, who is a uniquely gifted young life coach, who at the age of nineteen is fully able to understand exactly what teenagers today are facing. 

Meet Nancy Barclay, as a teacher, experienced life coach and a parent of 4 teens herself, who has first-hand experience of the parenting journey, and is very familiar with the challenges that face relationships across the age groups.


Having this combined perspective is what makes this course so powerful. 


It means offering the level of support and understanding that both parties need to move forward.


 Join us to build better communication,  increase self worth, and deepen the valuable connections between you both.


 Cost:     $60 per pair or $40 for one
