Rise and Live Fully.

Hi, I'm Carlyn Neek. 

I am an Occupational Therapist and Certified Coach Practitioner.


I developed the ACTivate Vitality: Rise and Live Fully program to help the helpers, focusing mainly on other OTs.


In my Alberta O.T. practice I discovered that these were the very people least likely to ask for help when they needed it. And, these are the people who, when they are at their best, can be of the most help to others. 


The program was specifically designed to take people beyond coping to thriving.


It is online so you can work at your own pace, you have lifetime access and are part of a vibrant online community where you will find your tribe, celebrate wins and get support with challenges.


Read what some of the participants have to say.

I believe that participating in meaningful activity is the

cornerstone of building vital lives.


In order to do more of what matters, we need to reflect on our passions, magic moments and times of pain. In doing so, we gain insight into what we value and can build more intention, meaning and purpose into our lives.


This belief is at the core of

ACTivate Vitality.

  • Authentic connection 

Kind words from some of my clients.

I knew the 1:1 support from Carlyn was going to be pure gold. She’s so amazing at what she does. She’s so easy to speak with. I was so motivated to do the work and join the group chat to get her wisdom

She listens so deeply. You feel so seen and so heard. Those are the connections I like in my life.

After Carlyn’s call I felt a quiet confidence that this was the right path and she’d step up to meet my needs whatever they may be as I went through the program.

I had no idea I could feel so connected to an online community. I’m considering flying to Canada to join the in-person retreat because these people “get me” and we’ve walked through so much life together.

There's no way in the world I would have pictured this it feels like a dream I don't mean that in like a Pollyanna sense I mean it doesn't sometimes feel real because I had no idea that this amount of choice was possible — of doing it differently.
