Wisdom Coach, Naturopath, BBA, BS
Cheryl knows first-hand what it is like to lose her health, finances, and business and be one step from losing her life. That ‘moment of truth’ shattered her perception of being invincible and successful. Academia and Corporate Success faded into the background as she diligently sought to restore her health. That journey led to
the creation of Lifestyle for Health (1990), authoring 17 books and working with tens of thousands of clients from around the world
through the Lifestyle for Health Wellness Clinic. Cheryl’s simple, practical approach landed her on media tours that took her around the world to over 1,000 television and radio shows as a regular guest and a host. Health collapse, depression and upside down finances are understood by all ages, in all countries!
The desire to empower leaders to balance their vision, work and health led to Executive Coaching (2005). Leaders and Executives often think they can multi-task through life with ‘success’ . . . only to find that success is costing them their health, marriage, relationships and often, financial loss.
Wisdom Coaching (2014) combined Cheryl’s health expertise and her Executive Coaching experience to introduce wisdom principles that empower people to ‘prosper in health even as their soul (thoughts, decisions and emotions) prosper.’ Wisdom Coaching is offered through Webinars, Live Seminars, On-Demand Video Courses and One-on-One Coaching.
You can create ‘success’ in business and lose your health. You can pursue ‘health’ and miss your calling and purpose.
Creating ‘Good Success’ allows health, business and leadership to work together so that you prosper in every area of life, without losing those things that ultimately matter the most: your family, your health, your relationships or even your life purpose.
Cheryl Townsley lives the integrity of her message, helps clients get real results and enjoys making a difference in the world she lives in.
