Holistic Life Coach

That life can be yours. What are you going to choose?

Hello! I just wanted to hop on this morning (it’s 6am here) while I am reflecting on my life purpose. Last night, I had a really interesting call with a coach who helps people gain clarity around their message. It was so cool to go back to how I started off doing what I do and why it is so important to me. She showed me that I am not sharing enough of my personal journey so expect to hear more about my life experience (my joys, my wounds, my struggles) on my Facebook page!

Life balance is very dear to me. As a woman, I need time for myself (this includes my social life, my love life), time to be a mother and time to work. All these areas are important for me to feel satisfied. I need time alone and I need time with people. I need time to do and time to just be.

It is perfectly possible to lead such a balanced life and be happy in all areas. It is perfectly possible to do what you love without being a selfish person. It is your duty to live a fulfilled life in order to show others the way and give them permission. Shine a light on what is wrong with our social conditioning, give people the idea to change their ways, their views.

I am seeing people unhappy in their jobs (nature of the work, relationships with boss, coworkers, being away from their family, lacking time for everything…).

I am seeing people unhappy in relationships (poor communication, lack of self love, boundary issues, people not knowing what they want, taking frustration out on significant other).

I am seeing people in victim mode, blaming everything in their life on exterior circumstances, illnesses springing from frustration, stress, poor diet, etc.

I am seeing people buying into the sad image of the world brought to us by mass media and feeding into it.

Here are some of my truths:

  • The world is a beautiful place and it’s our home. Look for the beauty around you every day.
  • The more you focus on something, the more it will appear in your life. So think about all the stuff you are grateful for rather than worry about what is going wrong.
  • You need to take responsibility for what’s going on in your life, for what you are allowing/have allowed to happen. Your boss is treating you like shit? You have not set clear boundaries. You have a difficult situation in the bank? Most likely you made a bad decision or two somewhere down the line. Now what are you going to do? Moan about it? Or put a plan together?
  • Some things are indeed out of your control but where you always have freedom is in the way you choose to react. Shall I be bitter and complain? Or shall I realise this is not actually very important in the grand scheme of things? I choose to be happy.

So what is your decision today? Is this going to be a good day?



Group detox in September – Join from all over the world!

Okay, so I have been having a great summer so far. I have to say that there have been lots of aperitifs going down. And when I have lots of delicious white wine (mmm, a lovely fresh Chardonnay on a hot summer day…), I tend to reach out for those naughty nibbles a bit more. And on the nights when I get to bed too late, I wake up feeling less energetic and going for easy eating options rather than prepping food myself. And let’s face it, I don’t find it easy just watching kids eat their yummy ice creams all summer.

As far as energy goes, I have been keeping up healthy habits. I haven’t let everything go! I am generally feeling pretty good but my face has gone puffy, my abdomen is swollen and I have put on some weight.

I am enjoying my summer – no guilt here! But I have got a super group detox lined up for September for whoever may be experiencing a similar summer 🙂

I am not a dietician/nutritionist. My job will be to give you the guidelines to a very popular detox program and to coach you through it in a private Facebook group. We will delve into mindset, limiting beliefs, goals and how to reach them and work on motivation to stick to the 30 days in the knowledge that we are happy doing what we need in order to make us healthier.

There will be work to do, questions to answer and introspection. There will be group calls and I will be present daily to help you with anything that comes up. We will all be active within the group, letting everyone know what we took delight in eating, how we took care of ourselves, what physical activity we took pleasure in, etc. But also what difficulties we ran into.

We will all be there to encourage each other. Because giving up wheat, gluten, refined sugar, alcohol, coffee, dairy can be hard. Especially the first days. This is why we will hold each other accountable and I will walk you through it.

I will be using Arbonne Nutrition products but there is no obligation to buy the special discount detox pack to join the group. Just dietary changes and mindset work alone will yield great results. However, should you wish to get even better results, contact me quickly at I told you a bit about my experience with Arbonne here.

If you are feeling lethargic and just can’t get your energy levels back, if you have weight issues (especially around the abdomen), if you have hormonal imbalance or possibly an autoimmune disease or if you have just had a bit too much of the naughty stuff this summer (like me!) this body and mind reset should have your attention.

Your investment for personal and group coaching this September is only $30. That is $1/day! Trust me, that is an incredible offer. The reason I am setting the price so low is that I want to make it accessible to all. Obviously, I am hoping to get enough members for my work to be paid but rest assured that the quality will be the same whether we are 3 or 30!

To register for the 30 day detox starting on September 11th, just fill in the following form and I will be in touch.


The hustle is real… If you want it to be.

And I don’t.

“Hustle” is a widely used word these days, specifically with entrepreneurs growing online businesses. There are a few definitions of the word in online dictionaries. They all convey a sense of emergency. Some even say that it is a way of promoting and selling aggressively. The way I perceive it (and this is indeed MY perception – by no means a definition) it is a state of activity, from the moment you wake to the moment go to sleep (almost), non-stop movement to reach your goals, working across the different media we have at our disposal.

Sometimes I work in a way that feels like hustling. I have dozens of ideas, extreme clarity when it comes to communicating them, loads of plans for getting the message across my numerous platforms (in English and in French). And I can work for a few days like that but it is not a state I can sustain. I’ve been there. I’ve been vibrating at this super high frequency, getting my work done, loving the action, etc. But I would resent any intrusion in my hustle. I wouldn’t want to deal with meals, bath-time, bedtime! Being a single mum, that can be a problem! And then the vibrating might go a little crazy, throw me off balance and then BOOM, there I was on the ground, with yet another bout of shingles.

I get the love for the hustle, I really do. I just cannot keep up the hustle (work) and bustle (home) life myself. My soul craves peace and calm, authentic connections, strolls in the nature, hugs in front of movies. I won’t get up and be on the go all day, missing out on stuff. I love my businesses. I do what I love and I love what I do. I also love my kids and having so much time to spend with them. And I love taking care of myself, listening to myself, doing what feels good.

I work a few hours a day at the moment. And that suits me. It took me a while to understand about trust and surrender. I had identified my purpose, I was taking huge aligned action and everyone was telling me to forget the “how”. How could I possibly forget the “how”? It was all I thought about, day and night. Then something clicked and I took a step back. Sometimes it feels like I just don’t give a *#?$. Most days I vibrate in a totally different way. It is still really strong but it is slower and deeper. Definitely less shrill than before! There’s lots of love, gratitude, forgiveness, goodness in me. And life just got slower and better.

With me, you will not get a sales message on every social media post. You won’t receive daily e-mails. Sometimes I may post a load of stuff, if I have heaps of stuff to say. Then I may just disappear for a week, while I feel the need to sit with myself and go within. I have no issues whatsoever with people who work differently. I follow and love many people who work so. Because the people in question are authentic. And that is what is most dear to me. Authentic connections ❤

I just want to say that it is okay to let go and do what feels right. There is no obligation to be working all day, every day. In fact, it is very important not to let life pass you by. Be present in every moment. Notice, live, enjoy the little things and feed your gratitude with the awe you will feel.

With love,

It was a no-brainer… I joined!

Hello beautiful people!

How are you??? I had to check in today to let you know my recent big news. If you follow me on Instagram in particular, you know that I love to promote a clean diet for healthy living. I always take a holistic look at my life to see how I can become a better version of myself.

I explained here how I had made some big changes in my diet over the last few years and how that had benefited me. Running several businesses and being a single mum of 3 requires quite a bit of energy so I like to make sure I get all the nutrients I need and sometimes, when I’m on the go, that can be a challenge.

At the beginning of 2016, a dear childhood friend hooked me up with these amazing products and I started a 30 day plan to test them. I had to love the effects. I had been feeling really drained and these supplements made me feel great, while eliminating coffee, tea, foods that generally make me feel sluggish, etc. After the 30 day plan, I was hooked and became a regular customer.

It seemed only natural, when my friend asked me if I was interested in joining the company, to say yes. Of course, I help my clients improve their performances and general well-being so having these incredible, high-quality, nutrient-dense, vegan supplements is consistent with my holistic way of working.

So here it is: this is the high performance brand I have been so happy with that I decided to join! You can find my site here and have a look through. You will see there is a lot more than just nutrition help to be found. All products have an excellent reputation as they are top quality, created by industry experts.

Being me, I am already looking for people to join my team, improve their own lives with these amazing products and spread the goodness, while creating the life of their dreams. If you are an empowered and empowering soul, ready to make a difference in the world and you love to make authentic connections with the people you meet, get in touch with me on Facebook and let’s build a better future together ❤

Honouring my body…

I have had years and years of conflict with my body. I haven’t listened to it’s needs, I have put it low on my list of priorities, said I’d deal with it when I had more time… But strangely, time always seemed to be lacking when it came to exercising my body, fueling it in the right way.

Also, I am a comfort eater. When something is on my mind, I tend to reach out automatically for something to eat, when my children are screaming/crying, I have a square of chocolate, then another one, then another one, etc.

Over the past few years, I have been gradually evolving. At first, I was angry with myself for not moving faster. But now, I see the light! It was good of me to take baby steps. I have still made great progress and learned a lot along the way.

I first discovered I had a large fibroid back in 2013, when I was pregnant with my second child. I was offered treatment but I researched the cause because the treatment would only act on the symptom. It seems fibroids are due to hormone imbalance. So I looked that up and indeed I recognized other symptoms in my body. So I decided to make dietary changes. Eating organic was already important for me. I started to remove gluten and dairy and tried out my first detox (no gluten, no dairy, no sugar, no coffee, no alcohol). I rapidly saw amazing changes in every day life. I didn’t lose a lot of weight but it looked like I had, cellulite disappeared, my skin was glowing, I had loads of energy… It was great. After my detox, I slipped back into my old ways. Then I would remove gluten and dairy again and feel better, the slip back into my old ways, etc. As a comfort eater, I craved cakes and biscuits and gluten, loads of gluten!

I would get upset with myself, think I was incapable of sticking to something that was good for me, that I couldn’t make the right choice in a restaurant when I went out, etc. But now I look back on the past 4 years, I can tell you this: I “slip up” less and less, I no longer crave the same food, I enjoy anything I eat, be it detox food or food that is not on my plan, I no longer beat myself up – I see this as a long term journey, not a 4-week diet.

This all stems from loving myself more and more. I am less hard on myself (thank goodness) and more inclined to make healthy choices for myself. Again, if it makes me happy to eat a burger or to have a hot chocolate when I’m out, I go for it. I just tend to not look amazing the next day 😉

However, as I love myself, why is keeping up exercise so difficult? Sure, I fly around the house cleaning up after 3 young kids, running after a toddler but I am not sticking to my fitness goals. So here it is, I am saying it here, loud and clear:

“I love myself. I love my body. I honour my body by giving it more strength and more energy through daily exercise.”

Amity Clemence coach detox

It is as important as my journaling, as my nutrition, my positive affirmations and my meditation. My intention is to do what feels good but keep to a schedule. Obviously, doing it first thing in the morning is not working for me anymore so I am going to make time during the day.

I have been on what I am calling a pre-detox for the past month and will be until Easter Day. Basically, I am mostly eating gluten and dairy free, avoiding coffee (I had 1 the other day and the crash afterwards was awful) and alcohol (also had some and craved burgers and crisps the next day) and sugar. So have not been doing it 100% but have lost 2kg and have gained energy. I knew I would not follow a detox plan religiously because I had a champagne evening last Saturday and Easter coming up (I rarely eat “normal” cakes but there is no way I am missing out on my mum’s Easter cakes). I already feel great and as of Easter Monday I will start a 4-week period where I will make no exceptions because my gut needs that time to heal, my hormones need that rest to rebalance and hopefully I will get my sleep cycle sorted again because I feel like some kind of nighttime ninja at the moment – aware of the slightest sound/movement. I will supplement with Omega 3, probiotics, fibre, etc. to make sure I am getting everything I need and more 🙂 Somewhere in there I will fit my daily exercise in and I will be back here mid-May to let you know how that went!

What I want to say to you is that wherever you are on your fitness/health journey, don’t be too hard on yourself. Look at the big picture, see your progress, be proud of the changes you are making for yourself, visualize your goals and feel good about yourself. You are amazing. What your body achieves on autopilot is sensational. Just give yourself the gift of improving it by 1%, then another, then another. If you’re comfortable going faster, go faster, if you want to take a break and reflect on your goals and your why, do it. Do not pressure yourself! Society gives you enough of that already. You are worthy right now.

I love you.


Being driven by Passion & Purpose

Oh my, oh my, I am on a cloud right now. A cloud of love and happiness. Not a cloud that’s just floating around, mind you. I’m speeding around, left and right. Doing what I love, with those I love…

I find that with every shift I have, I am vibing at this higher frequency and life just feels so much better. And I have always had quite a positive outlook on life so this is pretty big. And with every breakthrough, I feel that some perceive I am getting closer to la-la-land. Indeed I am growing more and more connected, I receive more and more signs that the universe loves me (as it loves us all). I am just too happy for words.

Do you remember how I told you that my heart was overflowing with love – like when you’re just falling in love with someone and you can take on the world – for life? I know that this spurs from me finding my true message (basically loving and supporting people in their growth), acting on it and TRUSTING. I trust that everything is going to work out just fine. So I no longer fret. And because I am no longer anxious (or rarely, of course, I am human and I react to all sorts of energies, substances, people), I am even happier… It’s super duper awesome!!!

I have started happiness coaching because I felt my message didn’t only apply to mompreneurs. And this feels so right. I love seeing the shifts the people I work with have, I love seeing them make themselves a priority. It’s beautiful.

My coaching starts with monthly calls and a FB support group where you can ask questions at any time, get weekly encouragement, and 2 coaching videos per month @ $27/month and you can leave whenever you feel ready.

This price is exceptionally low for a limited amount of time. Get in touch and we’ll set up your monthly calls. Let’s make your world a happier place!



Free coaching call for those in need

I am pretty open about myself, where I am right now, my emotions, etc. but there are some things I do not expand on as they are not just my stories to share. However, I feel compelled to talk a bit more about my private life and learnings today, when looking through the camera roll on my computer.


Here I am with my daughter (2 y.o) and my son ( 4 1/2 y.o.):

  • 12 days after splitting up with their father;
  • 3 days before moving house;
  • Exactly 1 month before giving birth to my 3rd child.

First, when I look at this photo, I commend myself. I know I did my best to be a good mum. It was a tough time, especially after number 3 was born. He cried loads and that is no surprise when you think about what his life had been so far. I cried at times too, shouted, screamed, pulled my hair. But not as much as I loved, hugged, talked, reassured.

For months, I struggled. I put in a lot of effort to get better but I was living my life like a victim and it is only when I was able to change that, that life looked up.

I take responsibility for what happened. It didn’t happen TO me. It just happened. And when I say “I take”, I really mean that. It is my power to take responsibility. Everything that happens in my life, I have an influence on. You receive what you tolerate.

This is not a pity post, far from it! I am the best version of myself I have ever been and I have so much more growing to come. I have learned so much since I took this picture.

If I could speak to the “me” in that picture I would say this:

“Everything is happening exactly as it is supposed to. You are going through huge change and greatness is on the other side. Just put your trust in the universe and everything will come to you in good time.

Know your worth. Set boundaries. Take responsibility. Take back your power. And let love and strength shine from your heart.”

To all of you going through distress and turmoil, I feel you. Reach out to me and I will help you through it on a free coaching call. You are worth so much more.

Do you show yourself love and appreciation?

Good morning!

Coming to you from my hotel room, where I woke up at 3.30am, thinking it was 5.30am. So now it is 6.11 and I am in full flow 🙂 Going to get another hour or so in before I head down to the pool and jacuzzi.

I regularly take a night away on my own (often, just after the school holidays). The children are with their father and I head off to a local hotel-spa, where I appreciate the silence, the good food, the comfort… I work and rest as much as I like and when I leave, I am totally refreshed.

Before I really discovered the importance of self-love, I would not have spent this kind of money on myself. Now I fully understand how taking care of myself is taking care of my family and my business, I walk in knowing I am doing the best thing. Everybody is happy: I go home relaxed and refreshed, I get much inspiration for my work (most of it while I am in the jacuzzi…).

It was only when I became single that I realized I was going to have to invest in me, to take care of myself or everything else would go to pieces. No doubt my life would have been different had I learned to do this before. But no regrets, I don’t “do” them. In fact now, I am so confident that everything is happening exactly as it should that I am even glad for every single thing that threw me on this path.

I want everyone to feel this relaxed about life. Since I have started implementing certain tools, learning more about personal development, I have seen great changes. I feel extremely grateful, I love, I experience my feelings, I trust. Everything is stronger, better. I get results, I am efficient, productive, active… My purpose in life is to positively impact as many lives as possible in the way that mine was positively impacted.

Follow me on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter to hear more about my purpose.

Lots of love,

Stop. Take a deep breath…

It’s been one of those days – I’m pretty sure you are going to know what I’m talking about – when you just work, produce, do task after task yet you don’t feel particularly satisfied. Worse, you don’t feel you’re getting anywhere.

Add in a little unpleasantness in your personal life and the day feels… a bit shitty.

I was feeling like I had been going non stop yet I felt overwhelmed. So I decided to take my own advice and move away from the computer. The sun was shining outside and I could hear the birds so I took a little stroll.

I am fortunate enough to have an abundance of nature all around the small village where I live so I headed straight for the woods. I love to walk among the trees, on the soft moss floor, with the beautiful rays of sunlight working their way through branches.


As you can see, I’m not feeling super happy about everything as I walk into the woods but after a few minutes of deep breaths of fresh air, I began to feel amazing.

I definitely wasn’t wasting time by stepping back from work. Not only was I going to return to my computer feeling refreshed but as I walked, answers came to me. I sorted out a few blocks I had come across, recognized some old patterns (grrr) and gave myself a good pep talk!

My point here is that it is sometimes vital to stop working in order to gain some perspective. Often, you get so caught up with stress and overwhelm, you feel you have just got to get it done! But stepping away can be so beneficial.

I find I work a whole lot better when I work less. From time to time I do a great haul at work but to be honest, many of my most productive days are my shortest days 🙂

I didn’t take a photo of my happy face when I got back from my stroll so I’ll leave you with my slightly worried one.

And I hope you all know when it is time to stop, to take a deep breath (or 10) and to know that everything is going to be absolutely alright.
