About Jay Lambert

Hello, I’m Jay Lambert, an International Coaching Federation (ICF) Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with a rich Metis heritage. My 20+ years in healthcare transformation, primarily within First Nations environments, are complemented by my experience in mainstream healthcare sectors. This unique background has enabled me to stand with feet firmly planted in both Indigenous and Western worlds, bringing together the best of both in my coaching and consulting work.

My Approach: Empowering Impact Innovators

As a trauma-informed coach, I blend Indigenous ways of knowing with evidence-based best practices. My Metis heritage enriches my approach, allowing me to integrate diverse perspectives and methodologies in my coaching. I provide a relaxed yet focused environment, helping clients to reframe their stories using a strengths-based approach. Empowering Impact Innovators, I help each client realize their innate creativity, resourcefulness, and wholeness.

Cultural Sensitivity and International Expertise

With over two decades working with First Nations across Canada and experiences with Maori in Aotearoa, I have developed a deep cultural sensitivity and expertise. My international work includes engagements with Indigenous communities in the Amazon and contributing to UNDRIP development in the Philippines. My services are offered primarily virtually, ensuring global accessibility, with in-person coaching available in select situations.

Personal Journey: From Burnout to Thriving

My journey into coaching was sparked by both fascination and personal transformation. Overcoming burnout and adrenal fatigue with the help of coaching, I moved from a state of health crisis to thriving. This experience, coupled with my Metis identity, has deeply influenced my approach to wellness and resilience.

Specializing in:

  • Burnout Prevention
  • Resilience Building
  • Indigenous Community Empowerment
  • Virtual Coaching and Consultancy

The Gold Standard of Professional Coaching.

Anyone can call themselves a coach. But ICF-credentialed coaches are professionals who have met stringent education and experience requirements, and have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the coaching competencies that set the standard in the profession. Additionally, they adhere to strict ethical guidelines as part of ICF’s mission to protect and serve coaching consumers.


“Throughout our time working together, Jay demonstrated an outstanding ability to create a safe, supportive environment where I felt comfortable exploring and challenging my pre-existing beliefs. His understanding of the unique demands of my work, coupled with his focus on my personal wellbeing, made a significant impact on my approach to handling the emotional toll of my business.

A key outcome of our work together was a noticeable improvement in my ability to take care of myself while still delivering emotionally impactful workshops. Jay helped me to understand the importance of focusing on self-care and setting personal boundaries. This not only protected my mental and emotional health, but it also allowed me to bring a renewed focus and energy to my work.”


“Jay’s Coaching, I believe, is largely responsible for the dramatic change in the way I viewed myself as a change leader. He is easy to work with, coaches creatively, and effectively directs questions to lead me to my own decisions for myself. He has been a true game-changer in identifying and enhancing the areas of myself that were impacted through experiences throughout my lifetime as a First Nations woman.”


“I am beyond proud to say that I have worked through my plan and I have achieved what I wanted too! What seemed like a mountain to climb, has now become a slight bump in my past and I honestly don’t know if I could have achieved all that I have achieved in my businesses, without Jay’s help.”
