Colette Ellis

Colette Ellis is an author, coach and transformational speaker on mindfulness, motivation, and wellbeing. She created Start Within Coaching because she believes that true mental health is a state of wellbeing in which everyone can realize their potential, cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively, and make a contribution to the community. Her vision for the future is that people of color will feel a sense of worthiness; we will know that our dreams, our health, and our lives matter.

Coach Colette is a certified Stress Management coach and practitioner of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT-Tapping). She also includes Aromatherapy, Meditation, Mental Health First Aid, Priorities Assessment, and Visualization to help her clients to transform their lives and realize sustainable results.
