About me

Dr. Elysa Roberts (Elysa) is a highly qualified teacher, speaker and passionate life and career coach. She is committed to empowering anyone identifying as a woman to stand in their power with abandon. Elysa believes that too often the problems holding women back are a lack of confidence, hesitancy to speak up, following archaic rules, and believing their worth has to do with their weight, beauty, wealth, or workload. Through her coaching, she empowers professional women to find their voice, reconnect ... with their bodies and tap into their capacities to make their impact matter. Elysa offers two unique programs of coaching based on her specialty certifications in BARE™ and from the Life Purpose Institute. The BARE™ method is seven practices to transform a woman’s body image, help her get more energy, feel amazing and become the bravest, most unstoppable version of herself. Elysa’s Living BARE 1:1 Coaching focuses on internalising these seven practices, so they become a regular part of her life. Elysa also loves working with clients who are in a rut with a lacklustre lifestyle or livelihood who are questioning everything. Her Exemplary Life Design 1:1 Coaching works to identify their gifts and talents, capture the essential elements of their lifestyle, livelihood and legacy and begin enacting what they discover. Her coaching is always evidence-informed and Elysa undertakes ongoing research as part of her evolving coaching style. As a result of her coaching, Elysa sees her clients shifting careers and pursuing a path they always meant to, speaking up more, dressing with more confidence, being more compassionate to themselves, eating better, exercising out of self-love and curating their social media feed to uplift themselves. She loves people to “see and be their potential” and loves the moment when a client recognises they have been influenced by outdated conditioning and chooses to do otherwise - to choose their power over the patriarchy. Elysa has been an occupational therapist for more than 25 years, holds a Masters and PhD in the field and has been teaching in universities in the USA and Australia for 20 years. She also teaches masterclasses for the University for Life Coach Training, which is underpinned by diversity, equity and inclusion. This certification prepares life coaches to be more equitable and inclusive in their coaching. Elysa landed in life coaching as a result of her personal mission to free herself from diet culture, the patriarchy, imposter syndrome, people-pleasing, fear of trying, over-striving and postponing her passions. Her own coach helped her unlock her self-worth and make an investment in herself. Elysa is ready to work together with you to free you to be, do and have all you desire and deserve. Read more
