Kristy-Ann Waugh

Position: Student Coach


Coach | Speaker | Therapist

I am Kristy-Ann Waugh and I’m so passionate about growth and development I’ve been coined an “Education Junkie” and alumni of the “University of Life” (UOL)!

I am an Integrated Practitioner and Human Behaviour Specialist. I have a multi-disciplinary business background with extensive experience spanning over 20 years in both public and private enterprise. I have worked across several industries - including Government, Defence, Finance, Recruitment, Consulting, Training, Education and Utilities - domestically and internationally.

I have a Dip.Bus, am a student of Positive Psychology, a recognised Credentialed Advanced Practitioner of Coaching*, Certified Trainer, Consultant & Master Coach of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Certified Master Practitioner of Time Line Therapy®, Certified Master Hypnotherapist (Clinical) and hold a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

In my capacity as a coach, mentor, trainer, facilitator and therapist, I possess an insatiable curiosity and unshakable optimism dedicated to INSPIRING TRANSFORMATION and EMPOWERING PERFORMANCE - moving clients from where they are to where they want to be in career, business and life.

As a speaker, I show my story of survival - after receiving a prognosis of 24 hours to live - as an example of what is possible when one decides to master their mindset and live life on their terms, passionately inspiring my audiences to REALIGN. REDEFINE. RESTORE their life’s passion and purpose... “you have one life, live it!” (O.L.L.I)
