Meet Tracey McBeath

Tracey is a Transformational Health & Healing Coach from Melbourne, Australia. She is also a wife and a mum to 5 kids, aged from 19 to 6 years. After doing a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Teaching when she finished school, she ended up working in Human Resources until she had her first of 5 kids. Around the age of 30, she was ready for a career change and became a qualified Personal Trainer. A few years ago she moved into Health Coaching. This is where her passion really lies. Helping people see they have the capacity within, to live the life they want to live.

While she has always been into health and fitness, by the time she hit 40, it was clear what she had been doing up to that point (following the high carb, low fat dietary guidelines) wasn’t really working for her now. She was struggling to lose the 15kg she had gained after baby number 4, and after getting some blood work done, she was also getting close to becoming pre-diabetic and had fatty liver. She was also tired all the time, and at night, she couldn’t stop eating.

Now at 47 she is the leanest, heathiest and happiest she has ever been, because she’s seen what was getting in her way, and she is grateful to have the chance to show others what she has seen.

Her study has been wide and varied and guided a lot by what her clients have needed. Tracey has studied nutrition through the Real Meal Revolution as well as the Nutrition Network (of which she is a proud Ambassador of and also a lecturer).

Tracey is a 3 principles practitioner (insight based coach) which is where she has acquired the skills required to show people how to get out of our own way and live the life we want to live! She truly believes the best learning is the on-the-job training of life. She is so grateful to all the incredible clients she has who have been brave enough and trusted her enough to look in the direction Tracey points them in.

She works in her own health coaching business as well as providing coaching services to patients of a number of medical doctors within Australia. Tracey also provides occasional coaching support within Defeat Diabetes Australia. As an insight based coach, she teaches people how change happens from insight, and helps them tap back in to their innate well-being.

What is insight based change?

“For most of my life, until about 4 years ago, I was an emotional eater and drinker. I always ate or drank when I was stressed or sad, and this didn’t change for me when I discovered low carb. It felt like I was broken, that there was something wrong with me, and that I was the only person on the planet who couldn’t get it. I knew the science, I had the knowledge. Why couldn’t I not just eat or drink when I knew it was not good for my health? I definitely didn’t feel in control… something else was doing the driving for me when it came to me making some of my decisions.

What made the issue seem even more compelling was when I started coaching and I saw just how many people, especially women, had very similar issues to what I did. They too knew it wasn’t good for them to binge on certain foods and drink when they didn’t feel good, but they too also didn’t feel like they had any other option.”

“The urge was so strong when it happened, that simply using discipline or white knuckling their way through it was virtually impossible. Just like it was for me. Now sometimes that did work, but usually that was when I was feeling good and not under too much stress. Life is pretty easy for all of us when we feel good isn’t it. But when we don’t feel good, we’re in a low mood or under a whole lot of pressure, seeing any other choice during those times is virtually impossible. That is, until we’re shown how it works.

For me, and now hundreds of the clients I’ve worked with, it came in the form of learning about insight based change. This is very different to how I thought change actually worked.

Change that is created from within – from insight – happens effortlessly when we know where to look for it. When we create space from our habitual thoughts and beliefs for new thinking. It is this new thinking will take us new behaviours.

For most of us, change seems out of reach for us because we are innocently looking in the wrong direction for it. We’re looking outside of ourselves to change something that is fundamentally internally created. What we don’t see is that we have innocently created a whole lot of thinking that looks to us in that moment that we don’t have any choice as to whether we pay attention to it or not. But that is a myth and a misunderstanding, and when I show you that, all your habits will start to fall away without much effort at all.”

When someone showed me this, my 30 year emotional eating habit and a 10 year long bottle of wine a night habit simply started to fall away. Does that mean I never experience urges to do my habit? Sometimes I do. But now I’m not so frightened of it, because I know where it’s coming from. I know that I can sit through it, and it will pass.

Seeing this has not only changed my own life, but the lives of many of my clients who thought they would never be free of their habits.

What is really important for you to understand right now is that you are not broken, and it’s not your fault. You just haven’t been shown the truth of how change really works.

Let me show you where to look to find real, lasting change.
