A senior associate with Coaching Australia, Coach Global, and The School of Life faculty with 19+ years’ experience in performance coaching and transformational facilitation, Vashti is a force in harnessing human potential and evolving purpose-led, adaptive authentic, leadership.

Her unique international client base, from street level to suite level, is evidence of Vashti’s capacity to work, collaborate and facilitate in diverse, challenging landscapes.

Vashti also conducts and designs coach-specific training, accreditation, mentoring and certification programs in alignment with ICF.



From the kitchen floor of the Welsh cottage where she was born to holding the floor in front of hundreds of people weekly in her work, Vashti’s vibrant life, largely detailed in her autobiography, Spartacus and Me (Simon and Schuster, 2016), has taken her from the UK to the remotest corners of India and from Bondi Beach to New York several times over.

And from the connections she forged as a child where language wasn’t shared, to holding space for her shy husband’s passage from engineer into Hollywood superstar, Vashti continues to follow her passion for engaging and energizing people to step out of fear and doubt and dive fully into their lives.

When she’s not travelling the world for work, Vashti can be found skateboarding or surfing with her two amazing children, running on Bondi Beach or enjoying a delicious coffee at sunrise.

Vashti’s skill for designing, creating, constructing and facilitating whatever learning forum is required to transition ‘stuck’ mindsets to new paradigms of opportunity and abundance is one of her greatest talents.

— Anouk Darling - CEO
I began working with Vashti, at a time where the clarity, direction and potential of my business, my career and my life had become a little stagnant and grey. Vashti’s dogged approach and inspiring commitment to elicit, define and clarify my wants, coupled with her strategic, creative and no BS Coaching structures, to help lock down an accountability structure, allowed me to shift, grow and really learn how to think, be and do life in a different way! I would recommend Vashti to anyone and everyone who needs a strong force in their corner and the clarity of her perspective to let nothing stand in their way.
— Victoria Barber - Business Owner, Fashion Buyer and Adventurer
I can honestly say that a few coaching sessions with Vashti have changed my life, and I’m not done yet! I approached Vashti for some coaching during a difficult period in my career, having been prompted by my wife to “get some help”. Within the first couple of sessions, she had put some simple, effective structure into my thinking about my life/career/future/family. Within the next couple of sessions, she put me on a path to having the confidence to get a great CEO role that matches my values and aspirations.Vashti’s approach is very personal. She has a freakish ability to ‘read the person’ and recognise the areas that need to be addressed. I learnt about myself and how to tap into my inner peace in our first few sessions, and this has given me the ‘head space’ to be more creative, bold and open minded in how I approach difficult situations in work and life. The power of positive thinking is truly amazing, and Vashti has some simple tools that helped me discover this obvious fact.I am based in New Zealand, so all my interactions with Vashti are virtual, but that hasn’t detracted from the value she has delivered. I have recommended Vashti to other senior professionals juggling the many demands of competitive lives.
