NLP Master Practitioner, Psychology Nerd & Life Coach
My name is Emma Garrison and when I first began my journey of self-discovery, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into.
I was the girl in the back row at the retreat unwilling to crack or cry. I had so much doubt that any of this personal development stuff would actually work. But because I was tired of constantly feeling lost, stuck, and unworthy of a breakthrough, I kept showing up.
I'm FOREVER grateful for that shy, uncertain, fearful version of myself who kept showing up and continued to try. Her courage changed my life forever. Her consistency gave me back my appetite for life.
And let me tell you — it’s YUMMY.
Over the years, I've dedicated tens of thousands of dollars to my development and the investment that made the biggest impact for me was one-on-one coaching.
I resisted it for a long time. Years actually. I thought it was too expensive. I feared it wouldn’t be worth it. I had all the excuses. I told myself that I'd do it once I had more money, time, or something “real” to work on.
But once I bit the bullet and hired my first coach, I realized just how valuable that investment would be. Coaching opened new doors that I never believed were possible. My entire perspective on life changed, and:
I finally knew what I wanted in life, and had the confidence to create it.
I created a vision for my life and became brave enough to set boundaries to support that vision.
I deeply connected with my actual, real, value - my worth and started living accordingly.
I stopped living to impress others and discovered that I no longer needed external validation. I.AM.ENOUGH.
I became willing to get curious about what I truly, deeply wanted to do, be, and achieve in my life.
I learned into my full truth and got confident enough to share it.
I appreciate my ability to sit in the discomfort of exploring emotions.
...and so much more.
I wanted to share this road map of my experience before a list of credentials because I want you to know that I’ve been exactly where you are. I’ve held on too tightly to my list of questions and doubts. I’ve hesitated for years fearing what can of worms all this self-help might open up. I’ve stared at the mirror and paused, wondering if I was really worth it.
If any of this has resonated with you, allow me to give you your first coaching lesson: you are worth it. Right now. Exactly as you are.
Whether it’s a book or a coaching package, you are absolutely worth any investment you choose to make in your own happiness. Trust me.
Now, on to the credentials.
I’m a life and leadership coach who helps people struggling with self-doubt uncover their inner strength to reach new heights. I also help top-performing CEOs from around the world shift their limiting beliefs into profit-driving and purpose-serving business systems.
As for that list I promised you:

Through my own "aha" moments, I’ve seen firsthand the impact that uncovering limiting beliefs, transitioning to a space of self-love and compassion, and living a judgment-free life can give you. Not only in someone’s personal life, but in business as well. As such, I’m passionate about helping others to find their own “aha” moments, through mental, behavioral, spiritual, and emotional quests.
