My journey and path in life
My Story by Robyn Frank
Melbourne Life Coach and Wellness Coach
In the beginning
My journey has been unique and I have experience in many areas. I have worked in four key areas, namely performance, natural health and both training and coaching. When I was a young woman I was working in the theatre in England as a performer. It was at this time I realised that I wanted to make a positive difference in peoples lives.
When I was living in London I became interested in natural medicine. As a result I came home to Australia and studied both massage and aromatherapy. To begin with I opened up a private practice in Melbourne. A few years later I began to work as an Aromatherapy Consultant for people living in Aged Care homes in Melbourne. I continued this work until June 2019.
In 1998 I was given a great opportunity to work as an Aromatherapy lecturer for the Australian College of Natural Medicine. It was here that I was given an Academic Blue Award for Excellence for my work. During this time I also mentored other teachers to deliver training.
A new path: Life Coach and Wellness Coach
The next step was to become a qualified Life Coach. As a result I stated a new Life Coaching business called Essence of Life Coaching in 2005. My Life Coaching business offers both life coaching and wellness coaching for stress management. In addition I also offer business coaching for for people who own a wellness business. In the last few years I have also run stress management and wellness workshops in Melbourne. Most recently I have given workshops for workplace wellbeing which were held at the NAB Village in Melbourne.
Creating a path for others: Business Coach
I have also used my coaching skills to help my colleagues in a leadership role for my professional aromatherapy association. In this role I facilitated business coaching workshops for members. I have also helped to organise the National Conference in 2012. Most notably I was the facilitator for a business coaching session for members at the Annual General Meeting in 2014. It was a great success and as a result we ran a national marketing campaign called Aromatherapy Awareness Week.
The journey continues
In my career I have coached people from a variety of industries including event management and health care. My clients have also included writers and people who own their own wellness business. I have over 20 years experience as a wellness business owner. As a result I specialise in two key areas, both wellness coaching for stress management and business coaching for the natural therapy industry. I help people to make simple changes to achieve their goals.
In 2017 I started a new service which is called Coaching in the Park. A range of coaching services are offered in the beautiful parks of Melbourne. The natural setting helps clients to relax and connect with their inner wisdom. Coaching in the Park is offered for life coaching, career coaching, wellness coaching and business coaching.
It is an joy to assist clients to improve quality of life and support wellness business owners to help others.
I want to plan my future

My goal is to grow my wellness business
