XYC-LIFE is here to help and educate. Established in 2020 to short circuit and interrupt the status quo, social stigmas and limiting beliefs surrounding men's mental and emotional health and the current dynamic of leadership for men, women and all gender ID's. We facilitate this through personal and leadership coaching and mentoring, directly challenging the hurdles in the search for self esteem, motivation, confidence and personal development. Our services work to empower individuals and organisations to find the perspective they need to better themselves and their employees as they wish.


LIVE more

At XYC-LIFE we often encounter people who in their personal and professional lives have a burning desire to grow and contribute more, but - for whatever reason - have not been able to break free and reach their full potential. This often leads to depressive symptoms, lack of motivation and energy, feelings of being lost and directionlessness.

What we have discovered thus far, through our own experience is that for anything of value to be achieved successfully, what is needed is a rigorous process of honesty, open-mindedness & willingness. We help people identify and break free of the restrictions and the many hidden and subversive causes of unconscious sabotage.


BE More

Uncertainty, excuses and lies - that’s right, lies; untruths, falsehoods, we are all familiar with them - provoke and add fuel to personal turmoil, insecurities around who a person is, what they stand for, their purpose and why they are here. Learning more about yourself, the reasons behind your decision-making, and a balanced assessment of your strengths and weaknesses. This all helps to integrate all of who you are and begin to draw on your personal resources effectively and show up in a more confident, certain and impactful way, changing the way you relate to the world around you and how the world relates to you.



Do you want to be a positive influence in the world?

Your behaviour influences others through a ripple effect. A ripple effect works because everyone influences everyone else. Powerful people are powerful influences. (Tao of Leadership)

In the world we live in today, one simple interaction and the way we treat just one person can have a ripple effect much larger than you might conceive. With social media it is not unlikely that one person can have 1000 followers or “friends” and those followers have 1000 and their followers have a thousand and so on. How you treat just one person in an interaction in your day, could lead to them posting something on social media which reaches 1000 people; that affects their moods and impacts their psyche. They then post on to another 1000 and before you know it, one action from you, good or bad, has impacted one million people. We're only ever 3 people away from one million. How do you want to show up in the world? Are you considering the impact of your actions?

Remember that your influence begins with you and ripples outward. So be sure your influence is both potent and wholesome. The ability to inspire is a key ability in life and leadership.


Men's Stuff – Our work with men at XYC-LIFE is based on the premise that by facing and understanding our inner demons with a group of our peers, we are then able to face the ones in the world in our full power. This is a world where personal challenges are transformed into fuel for personal and professional development. 


Leadership Stuff "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world." Marianne Williamson
