I have had the privilege of working with staff, teams and managers from small and large businesses.
As a HR Business Partner I have engaged Rachael’s coaching services periodically over the last 5 years. This has included Rachael coaching individual staff (40), delivering goal setting workshops and facilitating team coaching with great success. Rachael has a unique and vibrant way in which she engages an audience and individuals to set and achieve goals and it is always a pleasure working with her.
Donna Durston-McKenna, HR Business Partner
Through working with Rachael over this past 6 months I have made huge changes in my life. I have had mind shift after mind shift! I have moved away from a place of negativity, anger and frustration – a place I had previously kept revisiting for the past 30 years. After 6 sessions my thought processes had transformed and I am now moving forward in my personal relationships and career from a centred, calm, happy place.
I always wondered what the elusive feeling of ‘alignment’ was and now I have experienced that feeling, thanks to Rachael. Alignment feels amazing! I am so grateful that Rachael serendipitously came into my life when she did, she is wise beyond her years. I would recommend the beautiful Rachael to anyone who is ready to make positive changes in their life.
Rachael is truly a gift! She inspires your spirit and challenges your personality to have what you want in your life. Rachael’s enthusiasm captures your imagination and leads you to your goal.
Through coaching sessions with Rachael I have been able to quite quickly achieve clarity and a sense of purpose around what my goals are. This has made it a lot easier to make decisions on where I should be focussing my time and what career decisions I should make. The clarity has provided a sense of relief by taking away the ‘noise’. I would not have achieved this without Rachael providing guidance and gently challenging and interrogating my thinking.

I just had to share that I’ve had the most AMAZING experience with my biz coach over the last 6 weeks. She literally took me from wanting to quit my business, to bringing in thousands of dollars and feeling on top of the world – in 6 weeks.
During our call last night I told her, “Rachael, I don’t know what you did, but my biz feels EASY. I’m doing most of the same things I used to do – things that used to feel HARD – but now they feel easy. This law of attraction stuff works!”
I have more clarity, vision and confidence than I’ve ever had in my business and I feel on fire with excitement. I spent a long time searching for the right coach and I wish I’d found her sooner. She is GOLD. I’m so gratefulI found her.
I don’t know what she did, but in that first week I got so much clarity from about 5 exercises she had me do. I literally pulled in more money in that first week after coaching with Rachael than I ever have in a week’s period, just because she told me to do it and I finally didn’t get in my own way. I can only explain it like this: her vibration is high, and it rubs off on me and empowers me. I’ve always heard about Law of Attraction stuff and tried to do it, but Rachael absolutely gets it. Like begets like. She’s down to earth, authentic, and not all hot smoke like so many coaches who think they’re “all that.” And then this last week I tested out her marketing knowledge and she blew me away… together we nailed down exactly what will be happening in my business for the next several months. I feel empowered, clear, focused and on fire. It’s such a giant turnaround from where I was 6 weeks ago. Just huge. I just can’t imagine finding anybody better.

I’m just excited about everything that’s happening and want to thank you for all your help. It is truly so amazing how you have the ability not only to get people to see their true potential, but also to get them to take action on it! I think you are probably the best coach around! Thank you!
A small thank you for your support, encouragement and compassion. You have facilitated for me clarity, purpose, courage, excitement and possibility. Look where I am now to where I was 12 months ago. Wow! With love to a wonderful spirit.
In each and every coaching session I have with Rachael I have powerful breakthroughs. They show up in different aspects of my life and week to week Rachael uses them to remind me that I am a Powerful Woman. She has provided me with a toolkit to keep in alignment from where I can manifest whatever I choose.
Rachael challenged me Professionally, Spiritually and Mentally. Since the completion of my coaching series I am more connected with myself, my relationships and my work…After seeing what I achieved in 12 weeks with Rachael I believe that I can achieve anything that I set my mind to. Rachael has changed my life.
Rachael Pickworth is inspirational! With her enthusiasm, honesty, wisdom and spirit she guides your thoughts to this unbelievable world of no limitations. I have truly benefited from the experience and so has my business. Thank you Rachael!
Rachael has worked with a number of colleagues at various organisations for me. Rachael has the ability to take the people ‘out of their comfort zone’. She will ask them to assess, challenge and stretch themselves. By doing this she gets results. I have seen great growth in these colleagues as a result of the sessions they have had with Rachael.
Fleur Delves, Victorian Manager, PKL Recruitment
Wow, this coaching process is very powerful! I did not anticipate that I would be able to make such mental shifts in a relatively short amount of time. It’s great to move through my boundaries and obstacles in a challenging but safe, non-judgemental environment. I didn’t expect to enjoy it so much. I am able to see my potential again!

Everything is turning out even better than I wrote in my visualisation exercise at your goals workshop…Rachael, now I am a true disciple!
I cannot express or thank you enough for being there for me at the time I needed it most – you guided me out of the darkest period of my life – you never judged me and made me realise what life is really about and that I am a beautiful, confident and strong person. I have made such amazing progress – my life has completely changed I now have a spring in my step, the people around me say that I am glowing and I am starting to attract the things I want in my life. I can honestly say if it wasn’t for you and your beautiful, pure spirit I am not sure how much deeper the dark hole would have gone. So here’s to you, Rachael. Thanks for believing in me when no one else did, but mostly thanks for being my inspiration.
Just a quick note to let you know how much we appreciated and enjoyed your presentations at our recent WCN networking breakfasts. You might be interested to know that at the May breakfast we had a record attendance with over 160 guests and that you are the first speaker we have asked back due to such an overwhelming interest. The response has been phenomenal and the evaluation forms 100% positive! You will be a tough act for others to follow.
Kate Wilkins, Member Relations Executive, CPA Australia
Rachael is amazing at cutting through to what you really need – her nurturing yet professional and focused approach makes your goals achievable and possible. After just one session we felt energised, motivated and excited…her knowledge and practical advice is founded on real experience…thank you Rachael for helping me realise my vision and follow my dreams.
I would sincerely like to thank you for making my coaching experience a very memorable and worthwhile journey. You expertly guided me through the maze that was my life and brought some much needed clarity. Your support and non-judgmental spirit throughout these past months have been tremendous, but most of all I’d like to thank you for helping me re-discover the authentic ‘me’.
I attended your talk at the PLAN Australia breakfast last week and just wanted to thank you for being so inspirational and giving me enough food for thought to finally take some action in my life! In less than a week I have made great progress with some things I have been worried about for a while and your words of wisdom have really spurred me to get out there and do these things…to take responsibility and control of my own life. Thank you so much for being such an inspiration and motivation.
Caroline McMahon, Plan Australia
I am very pleased to say that not only have I gained tremendous insight and understanding about how I need to take more control of my own destiny and future but how much of this is within my own control. This realisation only became apparent because of the incredibly insightful, instructive and supportive role that you were able to provide for me. I am certain that as a result of our sessions spent together, I have and will continue to become a more confidant, resourceful and successful person in both my personal and professional life. I will be eternally grateful for your guidance and help. You truly are such an inspirational woman with a fantastic spirit, which shines through in everything you say and do. You’re a rock star!
…absolutely fantastic…the down to earth techniques were very powerful and non intrusive. I believe this was an excellent event choice. I have taken onboard the techniques and goal setting strategies and have even started re-reading the manual provided. I have attended a number of workshops and I can honestly say that this moved me and was extremely powerful. Congratulations on presenting such valuable content. I am very excited by what will follow.
Penny Santis, General Manager, Mortgage National Wholesale
We recently engaged Rachael’s services to facilitate a series of interactive workshops held throughout Australia for our Women in Mortgage Broking Network members resulting in tremendous success, positive feedback and delighted workshop participants. Rachael’s warm and energetic style not only engaged our audiences but left them wondering where the time had gone and wanting more! She has an extremely genuine and passionate approach to sharing her insights and encouraging others to reach their true potential – whatever that may be. Rachael comes highly recommended by our Network and PLAN Australia as a business.
Jenny Stewart, Training and HR Manager
Your presentation was great and I think everyone came away with some realistic and achievable ideas about goal setting.
Jessica Gully, Australian Institute of Management (AIM)
Rachael has assisted me in setting challenging professional and personal goals and has been innovative and creative in establishing processes to help me achieve the goals. I have welcomed Rachael’s ability to confront me and to show me different ways of perceiving myself and the world I inhabit. She has been a significant positive influence on my capacity to grow and change.
Kathleen Kenny, Assistant Principal
Working with Rachael has been truly fulfilling. Being a bit of a sceptic of coaching and not really enjoying opening up, I was very unsure of what I was letting myself into. My worries were very quickly dismissed. Rachael is analytical, yet warm and she is incredibly real. Her own business acumen and general life experience all make for such well rounded coaching sessions. I always leave our sessions recharged mentally and motivated to succeed in achieving my goals and be the best I can be.
Rachel Stefanovski, General Manager, PKL Recruitment
Thank you so much for your presentation at our Businesswomen’s Breakfast at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne this morning. Your presentation “Finding Your Path” was extremely well received by all our delegates and we had many comments from guests about how much you had inspired them to reach new and wonderful heights! You delivered with passion, expertise and humour and provided valuable information that guests could immediately apply to their lives and careers.
Kym McGuinness, MD, Centrum Events
You are a legend. Thank you so much for facilitating our goal setting day. I was really pleased with the outcome. I admire the way you ran the day and your perceptiveness to the different personalities. You really do have a gift with people. Thank you again.

When I first spoke with Rachael, I was anxious and sad. I knew that I had a purpose that I wasn’t living but had no idea what I was looking for or how things could get better. I was stuck and couldn’t understand why everyone else around me seemed so content. I am eternally grateful my search lead me to Rachael. She opened my eyes to the fact I am here to experience joy and I have the power to create everything I want in this world. I know this will be life-long work for me but Rachael has given me the tools to navigate my way through and I finally feel excited about what possibilities will come my way. It is an incredible feeling knowing I am now on the right path and I couldn’t have done it without Rachael’s incredible insight and support.
Thank you for choosing an absolute professional, not only did she go through each session which will assist our skills in the future, but she also demonstrated how well it can be done by being herself and showing her own skills, knowledge and passion.
Gina Maltman, BDM SA/NT PLAN Australia
Working with Rachael was one of the best and most worthwhile investments I have ever made in myself. She is an exceptional coach who supported me through some major life changes. Rachael has a caring yet professional nature and I couldn’t recommend her more highly!
Rachael, I am feeling happy, focused, energised and empowered. Thank you for all your hard work into my realisation.
Nadia Arkoudis, VicRoads
Rachael you are a life changer! Amazing, amazing, amazing. From getting me out of my old life, developing my confidence, building new skills, getting me to speak succinctly…to this! Words just can’t express how fortunate I feel. I am wowed – and I can’t imagine what’s to come in the future! I’m amazed – I feel so aligned in my life.
I worked with Rachael 12 years ago and got incredible results, so when I started my business it was a no brainer to contact her again for coaching. What I love about my sessions is that she just seems to know what to prod and poke to get the best out of me and challenge my thinking!
Her approach is very heartfelt. She genuinely wants me to succeed and gets so excited when I do! I’m focused, nailing my big goals and loving life. I cannot more highly recommend Rachael!
Deb Smith, Finance Broker
I would listen to Rachael Pickworth – she took us from broke to $15k recurring leveraged monthly income in less than a year. I’m not kidding. We needed a mindset shift and she helped us get unstuck. We’re happy clients.
Molly Patrick & Luanne Teoh – cleanfooddirtygirl.com
Rachael was amazing in my session. I could feel deep inside of me what I wanted to express to the world and my purpose but I needed some clarity to be able to pinpoint exactly what that was. In one session she was able to draw all my mess into one very clear precise message and I am so excited about taking it to the world. Thank you.
