Hello, I’m Gail Goodwin. 

A good sense of wellbeing depends on finding meaning in life, and fulfilling your purpose. I believe this is not only possible during these difficult times, it is necessary.  Research suggests that knowing your life purpose is linked to better health, longevity, and economic success. Finding meaning and realising your life purpose builds and sustains mental and emotional wellbeing. 

Profiling archetypes and reading their stories is an easy way to recognise, fulfill and sustain your purpose and satisfy your soul. You can use the power in archetypes to:

  • profile your personality,
  • understand behaviours, 
  • identify and manage life’s challenges, 
  • map your way forward, 
  • find meaning and fulfilment,
  • satisfy your potential, 
  • be more productive,
  • reduce sabotage,
  • make decisions, 
  • remove creative blocks,

The results? You will advance your intuitive skills as you connect with your inner wisdom for inspiration, insights, and direction. 

Achieving your purpose is energising. Finding more meaning in life is fulfilling. Knowing this has inspired me to collaborate with clients and their archetypes, offering Archetype Profile Consultations and Archetype Profile Training by phone, email, workshops and online – from Melbourne, Australia.

As a teacher and coach, I apply narrative therapy techniques, adult learning and human behaviour theories to collaborate with clients and their archetypes. The experience is a facilitated, creative process, using a dynamic set of tools to advance your intuitive and creative skills. Long term users report an evolving sense of self awareness and their understanding of others. First time users indicate that it’s effects are almost immediate, generating  a life affirming mindset and reset.

Collaborating with your archetypes gives you an accurate picture of your personality, access to inspiration and actionable insights about how to overcome your personal obstacles and challenges. 

My passion for mental and emotional wellbeing, and spiritual fulfilment began at age fourteen, when my mother enrolled me into my first yoga class. So my involvement with the complementary therapy industry spans more than forty years. The philosophy and practice of journaling, meditation and yoga informs much of my work today.

Inspiration is also drawn from having worked in partnership with Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit, and Sacred Contracts, in Australia, Indonesia, USA, and Findhorn (Scotland). Our partnership led me to lecture and train Archetype Consultants throughout Australia as the former Director of Training for the Caroline Myss Institute, Australia.  

From there, I founded Body Soul Spirit, Australia, and my signature course – Soul Purpose Facilitator Training. The Soul Purpose Facilitator Training course is accredited with the International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT), and importantly, SPF Training is recognised as an insurable therapy in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

As a result of developing the training manuals for the SPF Training course, I went on to write, A Dialogue with the Soul: Using personality archetypes to access inner wisdom (2010) and then, A Question of Balance: Colour, energy and healing with chakras (2012).

In addition to working with archetypes and your soul purpose, I teach at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, where I’ve also worked as a senior educator, mentor and student success coach. I’ve been teaching, mentoring, and coaching students at Swinburne since 2007. 

With success, I’ve specialised in teaching small business management and mentored a variety of start-up businesses through and beyond the devastation of the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria, Australia. I believe that coaching students, and teaching business management and mentoring small businesses owners has taught me how to bring soul and spirit into a down-to-earth reality, knowing that our life purpose is a continual process of becoming, rather than a state of perfection or happy-ever-after.

This has led me to develop my work with archetypes into a strong and reliable theoretical framework and holistic methodology that helps to align physical energy with spiritual values.

I look forward to working with you in a spirit of synergy and shared purpose, so contact me here.
