Hi! My name is Heather Morgan. I am a life coach and disability advocate.
As a Life Coach I am passionate about supporting people in four key areas:
Pregnancy * Parenting * Partnering * Personal
* Pregnancy: especially Infertility, Miscarriage, Birth, NICU, Postpartum, Trauma, Disability, Infant Loss, and Subsequent Pregnancy After Loss
* Parenting: especially attachment and attachment-based responses to challenging behaviours, healthy structure, emotional regulation, neurodiversity (like ADHD/Autism), disability, trauma, grief and loss, LGBTQ identity, and life skills strategies for those with developmental delays.
*Partnering: especially in the face of neurodiversity, exploring LGBTQ identity for self or partner, and supporting one another through challenging parenting realities.
*Personal: especially with my Values-Based Integration Process™ that creates a structure of honesty and connection to allow you to transform your personal, family and professional worlds. I also work extensively with individuals adjusting to new or on-going disabilities, both in terms of mental health supports and in terms of practical life-adjustments.
As a speaker and advocate, I am passionate about issues such as accessibility, housing, and structural supports, including access to equipment, diagnostics and community supports to help people move from surviving to thriving, both for individuals with disabilities, and their caregivers.
To that end, I currently serve on the Barrie Accessibility Advisory Committee as their sub-chair and volunteer with the Ontario Disability Coalition. I have spoken to community groups, service organizations, medical professionals, politicians, media and more, and am available to speak on a wide range of topics, either online or in-person.
As an individual with a disability who also lives as a caregiver to others with disability, I bring a unique lived experience to my advocacy that is deeply rooted in the disability community. I am convinced that the needs and perspectives of those with disabilities can improve and inform all of our lives for the better.
Is It Time For Change?
The whole purpose of ‘Powered by Love’ is to create a space for change to occur. If you’re reading something and you feel like it’s time to take on the challenge of living more fully as the person you were made to be, you don’t have to do it alone. Coaching is available via Skype, Facetime or Zoom, and advocacy is available online or in person, so please get in touch today.
Heather has spent 17 years working with thousands of pregnant and parenting individuals through issues including general parenting skills, neurodiversity (autism/ADHD), trauma, physical/developmental disability, mental health issues (for parents or children), and parents who are learning to support their LGBTQ+ child/youth. She has experienced infant loss herself as well as raising two children, each with multiple disabilities, both of whom identify as LGBTQ+.
Professionally, Heather has worked as the Founding Support Director for the Trisomy 18 Foundation and has attended over 50 births as a High Risk Doula. She has trained under Penny Simkin on Childbirth After Sexual Abuse, under Leah Kuypers on Zones of Regulation, under Dr. Karyn Purvis on The Connected Child, and with the Gilbert Centre’s Family Support Team. Heather is a trained Life Coach with thousands of hours of clinical experience.
