Empowered Transitions from Survivor to Thriver

Life, Interrupted

Let’s face it: every now and then life throws a massive curve ball at us that leaves us feeling shocked or vulnerable, lost or unsure how to cope. Something fundamentally has changed in our life that is forcing us to seek out better ways of being. For our own health’s sake! Deep down inside we know what doesn’t work for us anymore. We have a sense of who we want to be and what goals want to achieve. No longer wanting those old repeated patterns of self sabotage getting in the way. We want to become un-stuck as we realize this:

We are ready to change when the pain of staying the same is GREATER than the pain of change.

You may recall the familiar terrain of going down that one bumpy road – over and over again – hoping for a different result each time. Knowing the result never changes and consistently leads to disappointment (and secretly leaving us wondering why we make that choice over and over again!)

So. What if…you were to walk down a completely different road instead? One that leads you away from frustrations and moves you towards the life you dream of?

Hello! I am Paula Smith, founder of Thrivers Unite and agent of transformative change. As a coach I am passionate about guiding people to step into their power and navigate new pathways towards a more successful life. As a certified professional life coach with over 300 hours of training and coaching, I have plenty of experience and tools in the coaching tool box to help you create the life you often think about having. You know, the one you day dream about!

My mission is to inspire and empower people to shift from a victim/survivor mindset – to a healthy, thriving mindset.

What is a thriver?

A thriver is a person who has overcome great obstacles in their life. They have survived some sort of trauma, have a desire to become self empowered and make positive choices for themselves. Where they at one time felt like a victim of circumstance, they have done the deep inner work to move through their challenges and shift towards a better version of themselves. They have developed a healthy mindset, beliefs and habits. They live in the present moment with an open and loving heart. Thrivers are grateful for life and all it has to offer, are resilient and live from a place of personal authenticity.

As a widow and kidney transplant recipient I have learned from my own journey, transitioning from victim to survivor to thriver.

Here is my commitment to you:

  • I will walk beside you as you navigate through your personal waters of change.
  • I will hold a safe and compassionate space for you where you are free to explore your infinite potentials.
  • I will ask you powerful questions to get you thinking deeper below the surface.
  • I will assist you in developing a strategic plan.
  • I will hold you accountable for completing bite size steps towards meeting your goals.
  • I wilI empower you to shift, learn and grow into the thriving person you so desire to become.
  • I will gently but firmly challenge your beliefs, thoughts and self sabotaging patterns where necessary.
  • I will never judge, criticize nor condemn you. Rather, I will listen intently with curiosity and encourage you to look deeper, to discover the truth of who you are.

Ready to start thriving? Let’s have a chat!

An open and honest, no obligation chat, that is! My FREE gift to you: a 60 minute discovery session

“Before working with Paula I felt lost and kind of broken. I needed help improving my self-worth and confidence. Paula helped me figure out the root cause of my issues. Through her coaching and incredible exercises, I was able find and integrate a couple of crucial pieces of myself I thought I had lost and was dearly missing. I feel a drastic change within myself and I’m able to move forward towards my goals. I would recommend Paula to anyone who has gone through a life-changing situation and needs help figuring out how to thrive and become a better, happier and stronger person.”  – Begonia L.

“Very grateful and humbled and encouraged by the power of Paula’s coaching. Her manner
as well as her techniques. I felt safe and cared for in sessions to be able to fully engage and therefore
to gain the maximum benefit.” – Louise R.

“I am so happy Paula that you are offering this. I was a very fortunate being who experienced your coaching first hand. I so appreciate how you were able to hold a calm presence no matter what I was going through. You made it such a safe place to open up, face my vulnerability and come away calmer, clearer and more resolved. You helped me see things just by experiencing some of your exercises that seemed so simple and easy and yet were very profound. I cherish the gratitude I have from this time with you. I wish you every well deserved success and am happy for all who get to experience your kind and gentle guidance.” – Judy E.
