Here’s what I’ve come to learn. We are spiritual beings having a human experience and we are driving the ‘car’ without the right manual. Our ‘current programming’ was cobbled together a long time ago and it’s very outdated. In fact, so long ago you can’t even remember it happening. Our beliefs, habits and many of our behaviours are learnt between the ages of 0-7 from family, environment and personal experiences, so it’s like running the latest Mac computer with a software called shortcode, the first computer software proposed in 1949.
This old programming HOLDS YOU BACK from getting what you want and from being the real you, and keeps you attracting the wrong partners, the wrong jobs, finding yourself reliving the same scenarios and results over and over again.
When you Say Yes to Yourself, you are living in ‘alignment’ with what is important to you, you start to attract the right people and opportunities into your life instead of the wrong ones over and over again. You go from a ‘watered down’ version of yourself to full strength!!!
What if the secret to saying Yes to Yourself was you?
Imagine living honestly and authentically to your desires and values and sharing your talents and skills with the world without the gap.
Most of our lives we search for love outside of ourselves to have the feeling of completeness but what if you could have that feeling of wholeness on your own?
Yes, Yes, Yes - Say Yes to Yourself is a self-development program that gives you the roadmap to your authentic self - more confidence, joy, and creativity which in turn opens the path to the right life for you. It gives you all the tools, learning, and structures to get out of stuck and get on the road to you!
Please note that it may induce joy and success!!
YOU’RE EXCITED TO CREATE THE NEXT PHASE OF YOUR LIFE BUT YOU HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW TO DO IT!!!
"How do I stop that voice inside my head from telling me, 'I'm too old, I'm too late,' or 'I can't do it?'"
"How do I organise my time to make it happen?"
"I feel like I put everyone’s priorities before my needs, and no matter how good my intentions are, I still don’t get what I want done."
"How do I have the courage to ask for what I need?"
"I start things but I seem to get tripped up."
"I’m tired of trying to figure it out on my own."
It’s my greatest joy to share with you a proven structure to help you let go of your old beliefs, habits, and behaviours and support you on this journey to creating a life you love.
If you don’t have a plan to follow, somewhere to go to ask important questions, it can be easy to make critical mistakes, get off track, and never end up getting what you want.
Without guidance and support, it can be difficult to make any progress at all!
THAT'S WHY I CREATED
A life-changing group coaching program that will take you through the step-by-step process to uncover your deepest desires, what’s holding you back and how to have the courage to live in authenticity.
YES, YES, YES will reconnect you to your true voice and desires, your passion, confidence, creativity, and to a deep sense of belonging (to life and you). It will shine a light into areas of your life you’ve never considered important and assist you to bring to life what you want to say YES to, whether it be your passion, a project, your long-held dream, or the next step in life through a structured roadmap, learning, and focus.
There is no theory here, the YES, YES, YES Roadmap is tried and tested at the ‘coalface of life’ by over 100+ participants. It’s packed with excitement, motivation, learnings, insights, live calls, videos, audio, reading list, structures, practical creative exercises to anchor in your learnings, and recorded interviews with guest experts.
It’s created to nurture you and your true desires, to support you in finding the courage to follow your heart and come ALIVE. To stand with pride in your shoes from a place of confidence and authenticity and have the skills to create your life with intention.
"In January 2019, I said yes to myself and enrolled in Carla’s Yes, Yes, Yes program. Feeling overwhelmed with changes I knew I had to make, I quickly realized that I first needed to focus on my health and well being. With a backdrop of learnings, insights, creative exercises, reading lists, coaching calls, and more, in just five months, I lost 27 pounds and regained my energy and zest for life."
"Carla’s Yes, Yes, Yes program, was the best thing to happen to me in a long time. At the time, I was at a very very low point. In the previous years, I’d battled cancer, closed a business, my husband had an affair and left and I had just lost my job. I felt like I would never be happy again.
Now, joy is seeping back into my life, I’m at peace and I feel like ME again and I haven’t even completed all the modules yet! Using the success stories of the fellow participants to motivate me and the modules and readings to empower me, I started to trust in myself and my future. I have just opened my first art exhibition and been offered my dream job. I’m so excited for the future; I’ll be unstoppable. I found my ‘gift in the garbage’ and have been able to heal and believe in such a short time because of Carla and her program."
Each module has a fun creative exercise that works an extra layer of magic, creativity is where the conscious meets the unconscious and in doing the exercises you gain new insights and aha's!!!

"I would never be here, sitting in my new home in Venice, writing this if it wasn’t for Carla! Her kind, inspiring, and most importantly, motivating way to look at life made me believe it was possible. I think over time if we don’t take action, life starts to feel smaller and smaller. Carla helped me see that this wasn’t inevitable. I just needed to take small steps each day to open up the world to me."
"It sounds so dramatic, but I really thought life had passed me by. I had no motivation, no plans & no confidence. My life was the ultimate ‘Groundhog Day’. I was comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation. Being middle aged, I thought I was far too old to start anything. I decided my life was going to be spent supporting and encouraging my children chase their dreams and passions. However, my instincts kept telling me there was more to life.
During this past year, I have returned to my first love, photography. I am preparing to travel overseas to document a number of not for profit programs in Africa and Borneo. I have been published in a double spread in the Sydney Morning Herald and my portrait images have been used in an album cover. I am also starting my own portrait business.
Carla has given me the courage and confidence to fully participate in life again. My advice is to show up, dive in and stay at it. Life is too short not too."
When You SAY YES To Your DESIRES, You Feel Passion; When You Feel Passion, You Are
When You Are ALIVE, You Are Connected To Life,
Your Vision, The People Around.
You Become UNSTOPPABLE And Have A Deep Sense Of BELONGING!
"Towards the middle of the course, I felt as if I was literally creating new neural pathways. A sense of understanding that I had ended up in these situations in life, because of my thoughts and my programming, and understanding finally that if I re-program these negative thoughts, my reality will soon start to shift accordingly. It was a divine moment of understanding our own power and it turned absolutely everything around for me. "
Be prepared to be brave, honest, vulnerable and to do the work.
Find your voice, listen attentively and trust it.
Distilled… this is what Yes, Yes, Yes means to me.
Starting ‘yes’ I was unsure of how to progress with photography. I’ve taken photographs since being a teenager and largely kept them to myself. It sounds simple enough and yet for me, this was deeply challenging because it meant overcoming self-doubt, perfectionism, fear, loathing and more blocks. Two of my photos are among the final group of 30 in the Maggie Diaz Photography Prize for Women 2019. I couldn’t have imagined this outcome when starting Yes, Yes, Yes, I am so grateful to Carla and the Yes Sisterhood."
We take your YES (what you want) and treat it in a holistic way, so that it isn’t a band-aid effect but brings true transformation to important areas of your life such as health, creativity, your beliefs, your relationship with time and money so you reconnect to your passion, creativity and bring true meaning to your life.
Each module has a fun creative exercise that assists you in grounding in what you want or accessing parts of your unconscious that you are unaware of. It allows you to connect even further to what you truly desire, think, feel and want.
Over 125+ women have passed through the program. There is no theory here, the YES, YES, YES roadmap is tried and tested at the ‘coalface of life’ by myself and many other women.
Changing your life and getting results is important to me as the ripple effect is far and wide. It influences you, your family, your friends and even our beautiful planet. I’ve created a supportive community, resources, and interviews to keep you motivated and supported on your journey.
Yes, Yes, Yes was born out of one of the most stressful, heartbreaking times of my life, and it was also the most exciting, liberating, and creative time of my life. In between the tears and being curled up in the foetal position, I had big ideas, I would scribble them down, they came in fast and furious and I knew exactly how to get out of there and I WANTED TO TAKE OTHER WOMEN WITH ME. I had one epiphany after another.
I wanted to scream from the highest mountain what I knew and share with others and help them live the lives they love and get out of wherever they were, even if it was simply stuck, not on the floors in tears.
Many people can teach you to take photos and it’s my joy also to teach that, but I feel my calling is something greater, to teach you how to have the courage to be a photographer or life you live the love where you show up as the real you.
I’m a Certified Creative Coach and Photographer who walks her talk. I’ve transformed my life numerous times. At 35, I moved from Sydney to Florence and left behind a business to become a photographer. In 2005, I moved to Paris and have worked with some of the worlds’ best magazines. I also published my first book Italian Joy, my pictorial story of reconnecting to a simple life in Italy and falling in love with photography. I loved creating books and shortly after, I published a further two books of my own and my work has been published in a further 6 books with Penguin.
In 2014, thanks to 3 auto-immunes and a big case of burnout, I had the chance to take a look at how I was doing life and went on a natural health journey to restore my health and wellbeing! This inspired me so much I became a certified life coach so I could learn the skills, structures, and tools to help others transform their lives. I’ve since helped hundreds of women reconnect to their creativity, purpose, and joy by helping them say Yes to themselves and their deepest desires.
I live in Paris with my husband and cat and still love photography and all the joy that living a life you love brings.
I hope we meet soon.

Our group live calls are held bi-monthly on Mondays at 9:00 PM (Central European Time) during the winter months and then at 12:30 PM CEST when clocks change in the Spring.
"I had become so lost in my life (in others lives mainly) that I couldn't even answer what my YES was for a good part of this course, so my YES became about finding my YES!! Of course, I had many many YES's there but I was too afraid to want them or to allow them or even to say them out loud, I felt stupid and selfish.
In five months, I've gone from spending most days laying alone in bed with chronic pain to being up and about, travelling, walking up mountains, dancing, singing, drawing, painting, laughing, making new friends and dreaming new dreams (and re-igniting some old ones).
I learnt to use my internal compass of YES or NO to direct me to my best life and it is becoming clearer and clearer."
