Success Stories

T.S. – Biologist, PHD Graduate, Animal Rights Advocate

So many results within such a short time!  Suddenly everything makes sense again and I feel so energized and inspired!

I found my real passion in life, my fuel and the ‘thing’ that makes my heart sing: animals and standing up for their rights!  It was always there – but I had forgotten about it because I listened too long and too much to other people’s voices “I should do something serious with my life” when I expressed my love for animals and that they should be treated with respect and justice. I never thought how exciting it can be to find out what really drives you. And on the other side how easily it feels when you are on the right path (again). I am getting involved in things that are really true and important to me and I feel much more fulfilled and this feeling of sadness is replaced with excitement!

Michele is more than a coach. She is a friend, a sister, another human being who has gone through her own journey and practise what she preaches. She is a guide who accepts you for who you are and where you are at but also challenges you to step up into your own personal power and accept responsibility for your life direction. The time & love she has shared has been paramount.

“Working with Michele was such an incredibly positive experience. The first thing that I was so impressed with her very deep knowledge of the theories in her field and her ability to bring those into practice day to day with me to look at things in a new way that I had never considered before.

“The things that she promised she really delivered…”

It was a very unique experience for me and I always felt incredibly safe.  I really trusted her and that was a connection we had straight away. [Michele has] something very unique that personally I have never found before in any kind of dialogue or coaching work that I have done.

The shifts I have experienced have been throughout my coaching with Michele have been life changing. She has helped me step on to a path to taking personal responsibility; setting personal boundaries; understanding more about other people’s ‘issues’; and, most importantly,  regaining my passion, energy and zest for life.

Michele’s ability to listen acutely and gently point out my fixed perceptions of people and things in my life challenges was truly remarkable. I would recommend her holding a mirror to anyone who is ready for it.

I was really at a point of complete life dissatisfaction, unhappiness when I came across Michele’s website, and a desire to rekindle passion, interest and creativity in my life made me reach out. Read the rest of my story

I haven’t had the chance yet to show my appreciation and gratitude for the space that you held for me.  I am so grateful for our sessions and where I journeyed to with you. You allowed me to start opening up to my potential and to get to know a part of myself I had hidden for so long, by holding space and witnessing me. Your perfect balance of strength and softness gave me confidence to start exploring my vulnerability. Thankyou for being the reflection that I wanted and needed…

Julie*, 32, Medical Industry Entrepreneur, Melbourne

” I’ve learnt skills for self-love, self-care, self-nurturing and self-leadership and how to instil personal boundaries not from a place of defensiveness but from a genuine place of self-honouring”.

I have always been a strong, capable woman; but lately not exactly sure where I belong in this city. Starting my own business, being active, strong and competitive, seemed to override my subtle, sensual, softer side, which I had neglected so as to protect myself and ‘get ahead’. I felt disconnected from my feminine side, full of limiting self-belief’s, pleasing others, and caring about people’s opinions of me were affecting my sense of self, where I fit in, and what I really wanted. Michele helped me to challenge and change my beliefs, understand of the power of my disowned feminine energy, and to take full responsibility for my own ability to create my experience of life.

Claire Scannell, 25, Psychology Student (now about to launch her own dream Beauty, Health & Wellbeing business), Sydney

Before I started coaching with Michele I was frustrated, lost and had no control on life. Life was a confused struggle and I felt as though I was stuck in mud.  Full of anxiety, stress, worry and all this dreaded negative energy was making me confused, flaky, frustrated and making stupid mistakes.  I hated everything around me.  I was full of anger – and hated life.

“After working with Michele I feel awake and alive inside, the scared [person] is no longer within me, the excitement I have for life is a feeling of great happiness that I never knew was within me.”

The first few sessions that I went to see Michele I got lost, kept forgetting the apartment, what tram to get on and get off.  In the process of this I used to keep thinking I was stupid and a failure. I hated everything around me.  I was full of anger – and hated life.  I told myself everyday I’m stupid and going nowhere in life.  I’ll be honest the first few times I went to Michele I didn’t even want to go but a good friend of mine insisted that I went because she loved me and knew there were more possibilities for in life for me.

After working with Michele I feel awake and alive inside, the scared [person] is no longer within me, the excitement I have for life is a feeling of great happiness that I never knew was within me.  My mind is now thinking more clearly and I can focus on things that are important to me.

“Like me, you may have thought life coaching is only for people who want to make drastic life changes but now I can’t believe I have been able to make this career transition about 8 years earlier than I originally thought!

“I got the Job, part time, better pay in an industry I love!”

Michele is great at what she does and is a big advocate of people doing work which inspires them and encourages them to utitilise the skills and abilities that they naturally possess.  She really helped me overcome my fears and offer solutions on how to mitigate the risk of changing jobs and industries.  End result: I got the job, part time, better pay, more opportunities for advancement in an industry I love, and above all: happiness.

Natalie Bowcutt, Online Business Entrepreneur, Sydney

“Michele has taught me so much; introduced me to skills I wasn’t even aware were important.  Not just surface level stuff like how to manage my finances or set myself up in a home (which she has also provided guidance in) but how to stop built in, negative thought patterns that were affecting those areas to begin with. I learnt to replace them with positive ones, by looking within and realising my true values, not ones I have been told to have throughout my life.

“I left that day with my eyes WIDE OPEN – a new found enthusiasm and excitement I hadn’t felt for a LONG while!”

When I first attended a life purpose workshop I was looking for a change in my life and career. I had a bit of idea about a project I wanted to do but didn’t have much clarity or know quite what to do to make that a reality. I went in feeling like I was going through the motions, not really having much hope in getting more focus or direction in where my life was going.  I left that day with my eyes wide open – a new found enthusiasm and excitement I hadn’t felt for a long while!  Not only did I ‘feel’ great, I truly had a practical idea of exactly what to do in the future and the next steps I had to take to get me there.

Victoria Rose, Professional Speaker, Corporate Strategies Trainer, Public Seminar Leader, Founder of The Leadership Voice & Over 50 STILL Fabulous

My name is Victoria Rose and I am a professional speaker and corporate trainer for the Leadership Voice and Over 50 Still Fabulous. That’s all about empowering women to find their voice.  In all my 28 years of training I have never come across a speaker as passionate, enthusiastic, authentic and deeply intuitive as Michele Peppler.

Michele has a gift. And that gift is to enable you, to feel safe. Safe enough to have a look at yourself. To have a look at those things that are holding you back from achieving the results that you want.

When you find yourself lucky enough to be coached by Michele or attend one of her workshops then grab that opportunity with both hands. You’ll be SO glad you did!


Ruth Cumberland, Intuitive Healer, PhD Student undertaking her Doctorate in Dealing with Trauma

‘Yesterday was so amazing! I’ve definitely experience a shift, it’s hard to explain what, Yin and Yan feel more at one within me. I’m more centred than I’ve ever been and already those things I reclaimed are manifesting.

You have such a gift and facilitated such a wonderful experience for everyone, I was so blissed out afterwards!  It was also a great reminder to me to be strong in my divine feminine and the importance of that in our world at the moment.

Love how everyone has tools, strategies & goodies to take home too, love your style!! You present from the heart and naturally create a beautiful, supportive group dynamic.’


Kerry Verdon, Music Teacher, Sound Healer, Founder of Usanda Healing Centre

‘Michele has an amazing, almost magical ability to tap into your core issue and bring to light what you need to heal and move forward.

I’ve attended 3 of her workshops now. From someone who has attended many seminars and workshops over the years from Anthony Robbins to Christopher Howard, she truly tapped into the core of what I was needing to address in a new and different way that really made it become clear for me.

Maybe it’s because she’s a woman, but I just suddenly realised that my issue was connected to many other areas and situations in my life, and had some real ‘frying pan in the face – Aha!’ moments!

I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend anyone to attend her events. You are amazing Michele’ x


Elizabeth O’Brien, Creative Marketing Director and Co-Founder AMOR Global Productions, Melbourne

“I had a wonderful time last night exchanging my experiences, my true essence with a bunch of very interesting women at the beautiful Michele Peppler’s Shine your Light Goddess Gathering. Thank you Michele for your diligence and eagerness to spread Love and encourage us, women, to ignite the flame of hope in each others hearts. I love watching you shine and the belief you have in your own self. I applaud you my friend!!!”

Jessica*, Performance Artist, Melbourne

Before I started coaching with Michele I was stuck in a mind state that was not helping me succeed and strive for an amazing life and future.

I am now so much happier. I have shifted my thinking. I no longer have social anxiety and have created an amazing new life for myself now that I’ve learnt the biggest lesson – to love myself.

What makes Michele so unique is how open and loving she is. She creates a warm relaxed environment and I feel very comfortable opening up to her without any fear of judgement.

Michele has changed my life and will change yours too.

Michele, thank you so much for everything. You have no idea how much you have helped me. I can’t describe fully in words the difference you have made in my life. Just knowing there is someone to talk too, who understands me is life changing. You truly are an amazing person, and I feel so blessed to have you now, helping me in my journey…. Lots of love xxxx


‘Awakening the Woman Within’ – What people are saying

 ‘Michele is a wealth of empowering knowledge that leaves you stimulated to explore the ideas around who is the woman that you are seeking to be, that you already are.’

Wendy Taylor, Not for Profit Community Group Facilitator

‘An absolutely fantastic day! One of the most positive experiences I’ve ever had! It has reinforced my ideas on what I need to do from here on out. Loved the ease of it all. My biggest learning was that this is the world I belong in – one filled with joy & positive energy and that these are the kinds of souls I must share my life with.’

Jenifer Gonslaves, Reiki Practitioner

 ‘A beautiful day full of healing energy, empowering techniques and insights, like-minded souls, love and profound bliss.

Like no other workshop I have attended, Michele is inspiring and open-minded and tailors her workshops to the energy of the group, drawing out relevant and practical examples to inspire those light bulb moments. The content is highly engaging and thought-provoking and her personal touches and surprises made the entire workshop continually engaging. I strongly recommend this or any workshop run by Michele to any female who is open to expanding her horizons, empowering her Inner Goddess and exploring unconditional self-love.’

Ruth Cumberland, currently undertaking her Doctorate in Dealing with Trauma

‘This workshop was amazing!  The relaxed format & environment was great and very conducive to being able to take advantage of such a workshop. Michele uses simple language and simple ways to make sense of it for me. So down to earth and not lingo or over the top verbose. Would I recommend this day – Hell Yes!  Great ladies and a chance to discover more about myself.  Thank you Michele for an inspiring day.’

Jenny Longerun, Organic Produce & Groceries Business Owner

It was great to spend a day with such great women as we explored how to feel more empowered in our lives.  Before today I was in a time of emotional healing & wanting to further my business. I learnt to relax, allow things to happen, change my thought patterns and know that there’s nothing to fear but fear itself. Lots of great insights and techniques  I now feel stronger, more powerful and ready to step forward.’

Answering the Call of the Soul – Workshop Testimonials

Part 1 – Todays work shop was amazing. For someone full of energy like myself, this helps to put priorities in place and understand what needs to be done in order to achieve my career and life purpose goals. Much love !

Part 2 – Just wanted to let you to know I’m on fire! I’ve never been so motivated and focused in my life. I’m totally focused on finishing my Kinesiology study and already talking to people at [my current workplace] about how I can bring holistic wellness in there, and combine my nutrition too.  They are all saying they just knew this was what I was supposed to be doing.

Oh and to top it off, since I got really clear on what I wanted in a relationship and that life purpose is about everything in my life, not just what brings in the dollars, I’ve met the man of my dreams and are set to wed in Bali in September. Life is great!

‘Goal Setting for the Soul’ Workshop Testimonials

‘Like no other goal setting I’ve ever done! I was desperately lacking clarity and direction, but this was a very different approach to goal setting, more holistic than any goal setting I’ve ever done in the work environment. You get beyond the ‘I should’ (driven by others values) to the ‘I need’ which is driven by your own. My thoughts and feelings are organised and have started to set a new direction for my life!’

Bonnie Douglas, Mathematician, Melbourne

‘Fantastic! I was already fairly knowledgeable in goal setting but lacking practical steps to action and fully commit. Michele gave me very practical tools to take with me and use in my everyday life. Delivered at just the right pace, practical and easy to follow and being a workshop means you actively work on your own tasks immediately. I cant wait to see what 2013 has in store for me now!! What an amazing day! xx’

Kelly Webb, Massage Therapist, Melbourne

‘Hi Michele, I have just been going over my notes from your goal/intention setting workshop! I have come to realise from what is written on paper that two out of my three of my main priority goals have actually been achieved almost 1 year in advance! Wow! I was amazed when I read over and realised. I look forward to future endeavours with you Michele, you have great talent! xx’

Cory Bartholomeusz, Event Manager and Visual Artist, Melbourne

 ‘A great workshop to give clarity and focus to what you want to manifest in your life.  I knew I wanted to run my own massage practice, but I couldn’t SEE it. I can truly see it now – the steps I need to take to achieve it. Loved the goal setting and visualisation. I got to really feel the end result and experience it as such, and to become aware of how much/little time I spend in different areas of my life.’

Melissa Tyrrell, Massage Therapist, Melbourne

‘Michele is very astute at noticing what one’s blocks are, that one needs to be committed to their intention, the goals that get you there and to question whether the goals are really mine. Lovely Day – Christine Anderson, Legal Administrator, Melbourne

The day was great – I came away with stuff I’m excited about putting into action! Before the workshop I was scatty, and confused about where I want to go.  Now I can look at the bigger picture but also break it down to make it manageable. It really put things in a different perspective for me.’ Holly Taffe, Not-for-profit Program Manager, Melbourne
