Meet Fiona

“By nourishing your spiritual well-being, you nourish the well-being of your whole self – your mind,body,heart and spirit – and that of humanity. You contribute to a  lighter and brighter world for generations to come.”        

Fiona Miller



Hi, I’m Fiona Miller. I’m committed to guiding successful professionals who, despite the external impression that they have it all, feel there is still something missing, or not quite right, in their lives. Deep down their hearts ache, they feel empty and far from successful.

Does this sound familiar?

I can help you to retrieve your abandoned spiritual self. To gain spiritual insights and gain inner wisdom, clarity and calm. Through this work you can, with optimism, see a way forward that fully reflects your true/real self and ensures that you have meaning and fulfilment in your life. You’ll feel liberated, whole and alive again.

If you are looking for a proven professional who can guide you to address:

  • inner turmoil and indecision
  • lack of purpose and clear direction
  • tiredness and burn-out
  • denial of your spiritual self and your heart’s/soul’s desires

…you’ve come to the right place!

I have over fifteen years of experience working with amazing clients with similar worries and concerns; while working alongside them many achieved remarkable success.

My mission and commitment is to support you in more deeply connecting, nourishing and honouring your soul and Spirit. My desire is that your life more deeply reflects the needs, desires and gifts of your whole self and you experience true success in your life. Success that contributes to your well-being and the well-being of the planet for generations to come.

My path to become a well-being expert and advocate for the soul began at an early age when I inadvertently abandoned my spiritual self and the well-being of my soul was neglected. I relied on my mind, or more often the mind of others, for wisdom and guidance.

I spent the first twenty years in Scotland doing what I thought my family, teachers and community expected of me and I was successful in their eyes. I looked successful to them but certainly did not feel it. Inside I felt empty…my life was soulless.

In my mid-twenties I escaped to New Zealand. Welcomed by a January blue sky and sunshine I was relieved to be in a new environment.

Before long I realised that although my outer environment and my relationship with it had changed, little else had. My husband still worked long hours.I still sat alone in the evening feeling disconnected and empty. Although my new work was fulfilling something was still missing …I was still not sure what.

Over the coming years I was jolted by a number of taps on the shoulder, unwelcome life changing events including a broken marriage, burn-out at work, a severe earthquake resulting in a damaged home, and a serious bike accident.

Being curious I slowly began to realise that it was my inner environment and my relationship with my spiritual self that needed to change. I had neglected my spiritual well-being and my abandoned soul was screaming out for nourishment, love and attention.

Finally I learnt my lesson to re-connect, embrace, love and honour my spiritual self.

What I noticed was that when I nourished the well-being of my spiritual self, the well-being of my whole self (my mind,body,heart and spirit) benefited too.

Finally I felt liberated, alive and whole again. I joyfully began to create a life that deeply expressed my true radiant self…my whole self.

It is this lesson that I want to share with my clients, I want to share my light and save others the many years of separation and darkness that I experienced.

Clients say remarkable things about the impact my work has on their life and business success….

“I have moved from being a person who was doing ok but often felt dissatisfied to someone who can acknowledge who I am and feel entirely satisfied with my world.” –Christina, Regional Manager, New Zealand

“Fiona’s coaching has helped me to free my spirit and be all I am supposed to be. I’m feeling more in touch with my real purpose in life.” — Myrna, Psychologist and coach, United States

“I was facing potential occupational burnout I was feeling lost and I knew I had to make changes. Deciding to work with Fiona is the best choice I have made in a very long time.”  — Sharon, Senior Account Manager, New Zealand

“Fiona enabled me to communicate with God for the first time in months –maybe years.” — Steve, retired manager, New Zealand

Similar benefits await you. And when you invite me to work alongside you I will be honoured to share the powerful ways in which I can support you in your success.

What lights me up about this work is knowing that I am supporting you to be who you are meant to be…a divine being shining radiantly from within. Furthermore by helping you raise your energy and consciousness, I know that I also help raise the energy and consciousness of humanity.

What sets me apart from others working in the area of well-being and transformation are the magical insights and gifts that I received on my journey following the abandonment of my spiritual self.

Initially much of our work will be about you reconnecting with your spiritual self. As we progress I will encourage you to embrace and honour both your spiritual self and your ego self. Collaboration is key.The days of either-or thinking, and the separation it causes, are over.

Your journey to feel liberated, alive and whole again – to shine radiantly from within and be your divine self – will be different from mine and at the same time the same. I look forward to embracing this paradox with you.

As a result of our work together you discover the magic and power of being present, opening your heart, deeply connecting with your spiritual self and then whole-heartedly connecting with your whole self.

Then, in your outer world too, you feel more connected, understood and happier in all your relationships. And with more inner peace, strength, wisdom and self-acceptance you start to gain clarity and make decisions that support you in living a more vibrant, meaningful and fulfilling life. You feel liberated, alive and whole again; successful in your eyes. You gain  true success and shine from within.

You can feel confident engaging me to support you.

I completed my training with CoachU in 1998. In 2002 I became the first coach in New Zealand to complete the International Coach Federation’s (ICF) certification requirements and was awarded the title of Professional Certified Coach (PCC).
