Tracey Carter is one of the coaches that we found this month and we did a little interview with her. She impressed us with her vast arsenal of tools.
Her wisdom and dedication to help people install a better mindset helps her bring positive change to all her clients.
She has been dealing with limiting mindsets and negative ways of thinking herself. And through deep introspection and hard inner work, she learned how to overcome them.
One of the biggest obstacles we all have to overcome is to become aware of our own limiting thoughts in order to replace and transcend them, to become the person we were born to be, unlimited and with full potential. Here is what she said.

First of all, how are you and your family doing in these Pandemic times?
We are all doing well, thank you for asking.
After a period where we were all separated, I am glad we are all back together again, for which I am very thankful!
We have all tried to remain positive and adaptable to the ever changing pandemic environment.
During the lockdowns we were able to find love and joy in the little things that happen each day.
We treasured our family time, and had lots of fun!
How does the coronavirus pandemic affect your clients? Did it affect you at all?
It has affected a number of my clients in varied ways.
The pressure of working from home and home schooling their children, definitely provided challenges.
To others who have lost their jobs and careers, who have had to regroup and relearn a new profession.. I have definitely worked through a number of scenarios with my clients.
Most of my clients have moved well past this now and are adapting well to the new way of life and, if required, working from home.
For myself personally, the pandemic changed being able to see clients personally and it just altered the platform to be more online zoom meetings or phone calls.
What are the biggest lessons that you learned in this pandemic?
Be kind! You don’t know what someone else is going through.
Acknowledge that everyone has their own maps of the world in their heads, of where they are going.
Respect each other and each others choices and preferences.
Tell us about you, your career, how you started with your coaching career?
I have worked in management and accounts for 12 years and have a Bachelor of Business with a major in Management.
I then decided to make the big move to teaching.
I have been a qualified primary teacher and an early years teacher for 20 years.
During this time I was a Centre Manager for four Early Childhood Centres, and mentored a large number of teachers through the registration process.
After a number of years I felt stuck and disillusioned with the politics of teaching, and a work injury, I decided it was time to make a change!
This was the reset button I needed.
I had such a dramatic mindset shift through TLCC and completing my Diploma and NLP training, I decided I wanted to offer this transformation to others.
It is completely life changing!
I love helping others and meeting the differing needs and connection people need.
Once I had completed the Diploma I decided to start my own business Mindmove Life coaching and I love it.
What was your biggest obstacle that you had to overcome in your life that made you who you are today?
Me! Getting over myself and the set ideas I had that held me back for such a long time.
The existing beliefs and patterns of thinking I had did not serve me well at all.
The biggest obstacle was the mindsets I held and the greatest success has been recognising, questioning and revising the persistent patterns of behaviour I had and celebrating this.
The Coaching Style:
How do you innovate with coaching your clients?
My sessions are all completely individually focused on what each client needs.
I continually invest in my own development.
Through this, I am continuously learning new techniques and seeking out new learning to meet diverse individual needs.
What’s unique about your coaching approach?
Apparently the way I communicate with people puts them at ease straight away.
I am very approachable and authentic with people.
I completely tailor my approach to individual clients and what they need.
Accountability for my client and myself to keep us on track.
I am positive with my approach and I am completely client focused.
I am very motivating with my practice.
I love helping people reach their full potential and feel the huge transformation with a shift in mindset.

Do you use any specific tools to be efficient with your clients?
Each client has a coaching session planner.
I understand where each clients current state is and I then work with them to bridge the gap between where they are and where they want to be.
I have specific templates set up to help my clients, which streamline the process and progress.
The specific tools I use are totally dependent on each clients needs and wants.
I use the following and other tools as required:
Wheel of life
6 Core needs
Time Line Therapy
Clearing limiting beliefs
And of course the best bit is celebrating the successes with clients when the meet their goals!
(There are many other tools available these are just a few)
If you had a super megaphone that, when you speak into, the whole world will hear your message, what would you say?
What would you do in life if you knew you couldn’t fail?
I can help you bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be!
What is the greatest lesson you have learned in your life?
Time is short, live and be the best you can be every day.
Enjoy every moment.
Your final thoughts?
I hope everyone who needs it gets to experience life coaching, so that they can reach their full potential and live their best life.
It is such a gift to be able to make such a difference in people’s lives.
