Amber Haider ☑

Mindset & Confidence Coach

I’m an educator, coach, fitness professional, mom of 4 and pro/am ballroom dancer, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and Life Coaching certifications. When I turned 40, I had a coaching business I was growing and my kids were all in school so on a whim, I decided to try ballroom dancing. I credit the Life Coaching tools I was using in my practice for my ability to navigate the ups and downs of ballroom dancing. I have learned that our mind drama is what limits our ability to express our talent and training to the fullest. Many dancers start out loving it, and then somewhere down the line they find themselves miserable. When I coach you, we leverage joy, but we also want to be really, really good at dancing! So we remove interferences like self doubt, comparison, and negative self talk and increase confidence, resilience, and mental and emotional control.

Testimonials & Endorsements

Amber would dig deep in subtle ways to uncover why I was having these anxieties in different areas, such as results, messing up on the floor, having my attention on others instead of being with myself. I’m much more relaxed on the floor now and enjoying the process instead of focusing on the result. I’m not as hard on myself in practice and being more patient with the learning and practice process.


“Amber gave me the best, most useful advice. Simple, yet profound. She said “Decide ahead of time how you will feel after competing.” | decided to feel proud of myself. At my most recent competition Amber’s advice was in the back of my mind all the time. Decide ahead of time how you will feel. I felt proud. I stood a little taller and my movements were sharper. Instead of being anxious, I relaxed a bit and enjoyed myself. I was and am proud of myself. It really made a difference.”


“Amber helped me understand how to act on situations instead of letting them act on me. She gently but firmly challenged the mindset I was taking into competitions and showed me how I could let my intentions rule the day instead of my emotions. I find myself constantly returning to the concepts we discussed in our conversations – for dance competitions as well as every day life situations!”
