About Fiona Craig
Hi there! I’m Fiona Craig, Life Balance Coach, and I’d like to ask, have you been wondering?
- How do I let go of worry, stress and guilt?
- How do I let go of self doubt?
- How do I bring joy into my life?
Well you’re in the RIGHT place!
Who Am I
I’m a mum that juggles my small business with spending time with my two sons. A university student that never stops eating, and Buddy, a ball obsessed Cavoodle.
What you won’t find on my LinkedIn profile is that I’m also a lover of lattes; play Pickleball; enjoy a girl’s night out; hang out at organic food markets; love a bargain, holiday at yoga & meditation retreats; watch sci-fi movies with my son; and go on long park walks with Buddy.
My Back To Balance Story
In my twenties, I pursued the glamorous world of modelling and advertising, and partied hard through the 80’s. In fact, I got my life so out of balance that by 1992 I developed the illness Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
Looking back, I was so lost and frustrated with my glamour jobs, my nightclub friends, family relationships and life that I was turning that anger inward by neglecting my health and wellbeing. Even running away to the US and UK to study jewellery design were further distractions from the start of an existential crisis. It was not until I was bedridden, that I began to listen to myself, and contemplate what is my purpose in life, and what does this all-mean?
I was at the lowest point of my life, feeling lonely, weak and depressed so I started transforming my whole life, by changing my dysfunctional behaviour patterns, set better boundaries, asking for my needs, finding supportive friends, setting small goals, expressing my anger skilfully, reading psychology/self-help books, healthier eating patterns, vitamins & probiotics, and acupuncture.
Thankfully in a few short years, I began to bounce back, but a hunger emerged for understanding the mind. I continued my soul searching living at a meditation & healing centre training as a meditation teacher, and found helping others deeply rewarding. I read books by Jack Cornfield and Louise Hay, and dabbled in vibrational medicine and energetic healing.
So I left a promising career in jewellery design and moved into the field of personal development. I completed a bachelor degree in social work and post graduate studies in Gestalt psychotherapy and life coaching all with a vision to empower and help other women. And in doing so I found myself, and the joy in helping others find their true authentic self, and inner peace.

Guest blogger Erin Todd provides expert advice and support for women so they can better manage their behaviour and lifestyle choices as they transition into menopause. Menopause officially marks the end of female reproduction. Although this life stage is well known, there are actually different stages within menopause that are important to recognise and understand. Menopause itself officially occurs when you stop menstruating. Perimenopause, on the other hand, means “around menopause.” It’s also known as the menopause transitional phase and is called such because it happens before menopause....
