My Name Is Ryphna

I help non-conforming creatives get over their resistance by working WITH themselves in a compassionate, mindful and self accepting way.

Nothing feels better then being in the flow of life, feeling like everything is going our way. When things around us just seem to fall in place and our own work is just progressing quickly and without problem.

Unfortunately, life is not always that smooth and there are times where we just feel stuck, like nothing we do is good enough. For some people, that lasts only a little while and then they are back on track and on top of their game. For other people, it feels like no matter what they do it just doesn't seem to improve.

If you feel like you're walking knee deep in mud, let's talk.


Unlimited Chat*

Get access to a private channel and send me as many text messages or audio clips as you want, whenever you feel like it. I will take the time to read/listen to every one of them and get back to you with with tailored insights and feedback.

Asynchronous chat is great for keeping accountability, building habits, dealing with small roadblocks as they arise, and raising awareness / mindfulness about your process. I answer every weekday on a cycling schedule and make sure answers come in a timely manner.

[*Asynchronous Chat: We leave each other messages and answer when available. This is not meant to be a "live" chat exchange but more an ongoing drop by drop exchange. "Live" chat session available on request as a Private Session.]

"We Work"

Finding time for our own projects, for that hobby we like or for those tasks that really need doing can be so hard. So many other commitments can get in the way of really focusing on getting things done!

"We work" group sessions is about scheduling time dedicated to our personal work. By making it an appointment where you meet with others who plan to work on their projects, it gives the perfect opportunity!

Participants of "We Work" sessions connect via Zoom video conference application. The group is invited to follow a structure inspired by the Pomodoro technique of Sprints and Rest cycle. As the facilitator, I manage sprints and break timers, answer questions and offer guidance on the best way to make the most of the experience.

The "We Work" sessions schedule is released every few weeks. We try to organize sessions at different times and days of the week to give opportunities for everyone to participate. Session space is limited! Be sure to sign up to the sessions that work for you as soon as possible to save your spot!

Private Session

The perfect opportunity to bounce ideas around with someone who only has your success in mind!

Private sessions are like a power boost for success. It's the opportunity to sit down, bring everything to the table, and have a big dose of insight and fresh perspective injected into your goals.

I like to use Zoom for private sessions, it allows me to offer a recording of the conversation for your reference. For people who can't do video conferencing because of audio or visual restrictions, phone calls and live chat are also available. Are you local to Victoria, BC? We can meet at a coffee shop downtown if you prefer in person sessions.

No one doubts the power of community, and when that power is distilled and focused on the success of it's members it becomes real dynamite!

There are a lot of Mastermind groups out there, each have their own flavor and bring in their own type of people. While a lot of Mastermind groups do invite diversity, I believe that the LGBTQ+ community is under-served in that matter. My goal is to create a LGBTQ+ - Affirming Mastermind where LGBTQ+ identifying and LGBTQ+ Allies can come together and build a community focused on the growth and success of each member of the community.

I believe the best results come from ongoing support.

Life doesn't happen inside a one hour session. Life doesn't happen on a schedule. Life is everything in and around the things we do. That's why I offer my services as monthly packages with various degree of support to fit your needs. Check the different options below!

(CAD$ - More details below)

Little Push
