Meet Your Host

My name is Benita Bensch — I’m a mother of four, wife, coach, author, and Australian farmer.

I have been named in the Top 100 Women in Australian Agribusiness, and an Amazon bestselling author.

I have stood alongside powerful business people while guest speaking at regional, state and national events, which has given me plenty of joy.

Lights me up

But do you know what lights me up the most?

Coaching mums. Why? Because I have been in the exact same position that the women I coach are currently in.

The Benita three years ago was worn out, stressed, under the pump, lost, and on the verge of burnout – I had struggled with the difficulty of infertility, loss, grief, and exhaustion.

People thought that I was the ‘Super Mum’, when in fact I had hit breaking point – I was in the most debilitating, paralysed state of overwhelm you could imagine.

I had officially hit breaking point – but not just any old breaking point.

Breaking point

The kind of breaking point that demands to be noticed - the kind that gets up, grabs you by the throat and shakes you.

All I could think was, “I hate this. I want to get in the car and drive away.”

When I put it down on paper, I discovered layers upon layers of frustration, indecisiveness, self-sabotage, pleasing others, loss of identity, guilt, fear – the list goes on.

I was a far cry from who I am today.

So, I made a decision. I chose resilience.

Through much resistance, trusting my inner guide in the face of fear, many trials, and a lot of nurturing, I eventually arrived at the creation the Illuminate Coaching Program.

This is what I want for you. Now, thanks to Illuminate, I spend my days helping women free themselves from burnout and the stories that don’t serve them, and help them become the thriving women that they were born to be.

Benita Bensch is a mother of four, wife, experienced coach, successful business owner, nationally-acclaimed speaker, Certified Motherhood Practitioner, and farmer of beautiful cropping land in southern Queensland, Australia.
