Say goodbye to shame & trauma running your life and business and preventing you from being your most authentic self.

This is where...

Your soul comes alive!

You come home to yourself!

When you become one with yourself, your life & business gets better.


What once seemed bleak, is now beautiful.

The relationships that felt hard are now a breeze.

Your dream that has felt challenging or unattainable is now within reach and is flowing with ease. 

The disconnect that you once felt in your relationship with money fades away and you become BFF's!

The lack of acceptance with yourself and your body has been released & you're now in love with all of you, even your perceived flaws. 

You finally feel safe to share all of you with the world.

Hey Goddess, welcome to a day in the life of compassionate self-leadership.


Imagine this….


  • You wake up with a sense of calm and peace. As you lay and reflect on the previous day you're proud of yourself for crossing off all the items on your action list and you did it with such ease and flow.


  • When you pass by the bathroom mirror, you smile at yourself and all your thoughts about yourself are kind even though your hair is a mess and you slept in later than usual.


  • When you arrive at your desk, you set compassionate goals for the day. You laugh at the first item on the list because it used to be something that you'd avoid out of fear. Your brain tries to tell you to add five more things to the list but you don't listen because you no longer overload your plate and stress or shame yourself.


  • When you open your email, you notice that you missed an email from yesterday, you simply open it and respond without being hard on yourself.


  • As you look over your books for the month you feel proud of the client and money increases. You know without a shadow of a doubt that you can help them and that you deserve the success.


  • At the end of the day, you snuggle up to your boo feeling proud of yourself, your life, and your business.


  • As you begin to doze off, you notice a sense of self gratitude swelling up in your heart because you're so thankful to yourself for taking the journey of learning how to lead your life from compassion.

Did you notice any shame or beating yourself up?? Nope. Those days are gone!

Let's talk about compassionate self-leadership

First, traditional leadership can be defined as influencing, inspiring and helping others become their best selves, building their skills and achieving goals along the way.


Compassionate self-leadership is compassionately influencing, inspiring yourself to become your best self, elevating your life, love and business while achieving goals along the way.

Compassionate Self-Leadership is about living your best life, loving your business, and taking action towards your desires from a place of compassion & kindness and no longer from negative self-talk, shaming, or guilting yourself.


I’m not saying that traditional leadership is about shaming and guilting others.


 From what I've witnessed, when it comes to self-leadership, we tend to lead ourselves by shaming, being mean, harsh and comparing ourselves to others vs self-compassion, patience & kindness.


Sound familiar??

  • I should already know how to do this

  • What’s wrong with me

  • She’s so successful and I’m a loser

  • I’m no good at this why bother

  • It’s gotta be perfect

  • No one wants this

  • They don't care what I have to say


That sounds more like negative self-leadership

Are you ready for a change?

You might be here because the way you've been leading your life and business isn't working and sometimes you want to climb under the covers and never come out.


Instead of being energized by your life and business, you find yourself frustrated and drained.


Are you currently experiencing any of these in your life or business?

  • Do you often feel heavy, weighed down and have very little energy to put towards your dream?

  • Are you kinder and more compassionate to others than you are to yourself?

  • Are you hiding who you truly are in your life, or business because it doesn’t feel safe to be all of you?

  • Do you shame, guilt or beat yourself up when you don't meet goals or make mistakes?

  • Do you spend more time in your head thinking, analyzing, shaming than actually taking action and getting things done?

  • Do you have fear of being visible in your marketing or have trouble with showing up consistently?

  • Do you have fear around charging for your products/service or raising your prices?

  • Do you feel emotionally or mentally blocked because of past trauma? (abandonment, abuse, heartbreak, inner child or mother/father wounds etc…)

  • Do you sometimes have a knot in your throat in stops you from showing up and speaking your truth?

  • Do you have deep-seated beliefs such as not being good enough, unworthy, no one likes me, etc holding you back?

If you answered yes to one or more of the questions above AND you're ready to make a change, you're in the right place.

Hi, I'm Essence

I’m on a mission to help you to compassionately become your best self, while helping you elevate your life, love and business all while achieving goals and creating magic along the way.

I know this journey all too well, for years I lived the same depressing life over and over. I couldn't figure out how to get myself out of the loop that I was in. I would try to motivate myself by shaming myself, calling myself names, and comparing where I was to others.

It felt like I was stuck in the mud, with wheels spinning but no forward movement and that made me hate myself and my life even more.

Searching for answers I set out on a self-love & spiritual journey and I realized that I had father wounds and abandonment issues. This deeply impacted the way that I saw myself, what I felt I was worth and what I thought I could have and achieve. 

Essentially, there was a part of me that was ready for change and elevation but there was a deeper part of me that I was unaware of, that didn't feel worthy. This inner conflict felt like the great battle of good and evil.

In 2014 I hired a coach, began taking classes and just went all in healing, learning to love myself, be kind and compassionate to myself. 

From that place, I began to take action, do things that scared me and that's when my life began to change. 

I knew that I wanted to share this healing work with other women so I became a Certified Radical Forgiveness Coach, Certified Reiki Practitioner, Money Archetype & Abundance Coach, EFT Practitioner, and Certified Shamanic Healer.

Now I have the honor of living my purpose as a healer, self-leadership guide and spiritual life coach to wonderful women just like you.

Who is the Compassionate Self-Leadership Activation Academy for?

The compassionate self Leadership Activation Academy is for purpose-driven women, coaches, healers and entrepreneurs who have a dream in their heart


shame, guilt, comparison, perfection, and being mean to yourself is holding you back from taking action and making the impact you know you are here to make. 


Are you ready to say no more negative self-leadership?



I experienced my MOST SUCCESSFUL MONTHS I’ve ever had while working with Essence.

Here's how the
Compassionate Self-Leadership Activation Academy program works

The Compassionate Self-Leadership Activation Academy

Signature Level is a

 5-month private transformational journey.

In this program, we assess where you are with your relationship with yourself, family, business, and with life itself.

We'll take a look at any shame, guilt, limiting beliefs, traumas, judgments or comparisons that are holding you back.

We'll get a clear vision of what compassionate self-leadership looks like for you in your life & business.

We'll release any trauma & emotional blocks that are preventing you from having a healthy relationship with yourself and your business. 


You'll learn how to set & achieve goals or completing the to-do list from self-kindness not shame, guilt, criticism, or perfection.

We'll also create space for deepening your relationship with your soul mission & money so that you can make the impact that you're here to make.

Additional Program Options


I've created additional options for your varying needs.


1. The Extended Journey is 7 months and it's for those who have deep trauma, multiple traumas, shame, or emotional wounds to heal.


We will follow the same framework as the five-month program but this gives us more time and spaciousness to go deep and give the most traumatic events the attention they deserve.

2. The Month Journey is 4 weeks and it's for the woman who isn't looking for long-term help and has an idea of what's in the way right now and wants some assistance in releasing that block.

On our call, we'll determine which program fits your needs.


Programs range from $997-$8,000

After years of working with several clients, I've noticed that when we clear limiting beliefs, release past trauma, heal their relationship with themselves and lead from compassion, magical things begin to happen.

Here's what they're saying!!


8 months ago I had hit a pretty solid rock bottom emotionally and mentally.


 I felt stuck in a state of melancholy, sadness and no momentum to continue to pursue my Coaching career, my active lifestyle or my love life.  I spent months laying about, watching endless tv and eating way to many Doritos. Being a Health and Life Coach, this was NOT the way I wanted to be. 

Connecting with Essence and having her as my Coach was the best investment in myself that I have made to date.  From the very first session Essence listened to me in a way I have not been heard before. 

What I got out of our work together is nothing short of transformational.  I went from stuck to ON FIRE!! I went from no momentum to CONSISTENT action in not only my coaching business, where I was averaging a new client every two weeks, but also taking action in a new solid way in my love life.

Just being in her energy and her presence was healing, but then she does some serious magic with her coaching and energy tools.


With Essence’s help, I was finally able to start healing my relationship with myself and my past. This was something that I never thought was possible.

I was not even close to understanding what true healing was until I reached out to Essence Turner.  When I first connected with Essence I was nervous and I didn't know what to expect. After our first conversation, I felt safe and supported.  She was dedicated from day one during my healing journey.  She wanted me to WIN and I love that about her. Her compassion and gentle manner compliment her powerful wisdom.

Have you ever known that you needed something but couldn't quite put your finger on it? But even if you had, you wouldn't know who you should ask for help. This was my experience right before I met Essence. I knew something had been lurking in my life that felt like a blocker but I couldn't figure out how to reach that elevation. Essence has not only gotten me there but she's taken me higher.



 I struggled to find peace in my life and felt that I would never be able to change or escape my state of endless anxiety, frustration, pain, heartache and repeated patterns/cycles... and was I wrong! Essence has been a life saver for me

I felt safe immediately with Essence and we were able to go to a deep trauma I was still holding within me. Our healing session and her guidance helped transform this pain and ‘stuckness’ like nothing ever had. I trusted her with my most tender and vulnerable part of myself and in return was able to access a profound healing experience.

Is your soul ready to shine and lead your life & biz from compassion But your brain is saying "this won’t work for me?"

Check this testimonial after only 8 weeks

"When I first started working with Essence, I felt lost and very alone. I knew I had a lot of unprocessed trauma to work through, but I had no idea how to go about doing that. I had tried for a few months to find my way on my own, but all I felt was loneliness and despair.

With every session so far, she has helped me learn to trust myself and allow ALL the emotions to come up without being afraid or ashamed of whatever I was feeling. Our work together has been nothing short of liberating for me.

I've had 3 people reach out about coaching with me and I signed a client. 


I've started embracing my own personal style and feeling like FIRE in my own skin every day.
