Singe Portrait

StJohn Miall

“Deep down, I think we all want to live a good and meaningful life.   But what does the ‘good’ in ‘good life’ actually mean?

The answer will be different for all of us, but after 30 years supporting people to seek their own unique answers, some common themes have become evident.

The first is that each person will continue to search until they find meaning, or a sense of purpose, for their lives – to find their own niche and a path for their passion, for their energy and their particular skills and qualities. They need to find their own way to contribute to making the world a better place and making a difference in the lives of those they touch.

This may well change over time as they grow and develop themselves. Just as life becomes sorted and understood and mapped out, it morphs into something different… this is quite normal, but difficult to come to terms with!

Then they need to develop some emotional intelligence skills so they can manage the complexities of their family and work relationships so they can evolve from a source of conflict, frustration and difficulty into a rich and rewarding part of their lives.

They also need to come to terms with the many facets of their diamond like personality, some of which shine brightly from the beginning, but many need to be cut and polished, and understood in a way that allows them to be managed to effectively achieve the chosen goals in life.

Finally, there is the realisation that this is a life-long journey that goes through many stages, each with its unique set of challenges and opportunities.

This is a journey that I have been making and continue to make for myself.  I have been a student of the human process and have been fortunate enough to pass on to thousands of others what I have learned along the way about how to understand this great adventure called Life.

I have fallen into a fair few potholes as I have travelled along in my life, and have a strong sense of gratitude for those who were there to show me the way out and point me in the right direction again.   The least I can do is provide that same service to others travelling a similar path.”

Alexia portrait

Alexia Miall

“I was born, bred and grew up in Sydney, Australia in what seemed like an idyllic existence at the time.  As the eldest daughter of two children, I loved learning about life, the planet and the people on it, so school was a very rewarding experience.  Sport was a passion and I played Netball for 20 years, along with swimming, surfing and tennis, always feeling very at home in water, especially the ocean.

From the age of five I learnt ballet and tap dance and believed I would be a dancer when I grew up. Because I appeared in all the class plays throughout school, I spent a lot of time on stage and it felt so natural to be up front.  This experience was a precursor to another of my passions which is assisting others to bring forth what is deep inside of them to shine as they truly are.”

Alexia Miall is a well regarded facilitator and executive coach.  She has worked across a wide range of industries including retail, energy resources, telecommunications, banking, advertising and marketing.

Her career began in banking and then moved from advertising to adult education and training, where she managed her own training company in Melbourne for several years. Having held Board positions with a number of companies her expertise as an executive coach and mentor is extensive.

She is a Facilitator with Quest for Life, and a healer in a number of modalities. 

She has had the opportunity to wear many ‘hats’ up to this point in her working life, and whilst they all have a connection with her passion for communication (especially listening), they also utilise her amazing people skills. Her compassion and empathy shine through when she works with others, enabling them to be all of who they were always meant to be.
