About me

What is Light Before Dawn?

We are a collaboration of highly trained and experienced guides, able to move you from your state of survival, through thriving and into flourish. We have at our hands a vast collection of strategies and interventions to support you as you move forward. Our base of interventions come from a wide range of modalities and disciplines including psychological, somatic, nervous system and contemporary trauma intervention practices. We are biopsychosocial, holistic, therapeutic practitioners with a focus on healing your body, heart, emotions, mind, energy and spirit.
Key to our practice is holding space for clients with love, compassion and acceptance-allowing a foundation of trust from which deep guiding can happen.
We have many clients now living a life of flourish, a result of co-creating together to identify, understand and let go all not serving them in their life.
Included in our practice is a caring and considerate support team, whose interactions with clients are also held with love, compassion and acceptance.
Light Before Dawn is the birth of a much desired and needed Wellness Centre-meaning we are gathering a range of practitioners to offer a bespoke and integrated service to clients.

Why might you want to join Light Before Dawn?

You may now be in a place of surviving-sleep disturbance, physical discomfort and pain, emotional distress, patterns of worrying thinking-maybe even catastrophising, panic, overwhelm, a sense of being stuck, lost in what you want to do-or be, and a general sense of hopelessness. You may be somatacising - physically and energetically manifesting the suppression of emotional pain. You are living a life of scarcity, and your life may reflect this with money challenges, lack of meaningful connections and dissatisfaction in many areas of your life. Living in this survival state is exhausting, a place of little joy and contentment.

Living in a thriving state means you have improved sleep, healthy thinking patterns, physical ease and emotional wellness. In this place of thriving you spend time in a place of satisfaction and you trust that life is going to be mainly ok.

Flourish state is where the magic happens. Your daily experience is 80% of how you desire to be - maybe contentment, joy and a sense of inner calm. You have meaningful connections which are rewarding and fulfilling. You wake each day with optimism and a sense of looking forward to the day - knowing you can respond to whatever comes in the day ahead. You have faith in life being more than ok, and you are in an abundant mindset and living an abundant life.

What is the process of Light Before Dawn?

Code Breaking - In this stage we use a variety of assessments to uncover elements of you-including your strengths, your motivators, key ways you connect with others and certain archetypes.
With greater clarity we highlight what are the blocks in you living your life in a resourceful state.

Meaning Making - Now we have gained clarity on what is imperative for you to let go to live a life in a resourceful state, we make meaning on how certain elements interact with each other. We deepen our understanding on the complexity on such interrelated influences on why you are in a more state of surviving, rather than thriving. Theses influences include your thinking patterns, beliefs, mindset, nervous system state, somatic system, body blueprint, how you are connecting with others, daily habits and basics such as sleep.

Cocreating - We now introduce strategies and daily practices to guide you into a state of thriving-including mental hygiene practices ensuring a foundation of emotional and physical wellness. We know what you have to let go, manage and tend to, so you can respond rather than react in your life. Once we have established your grounding daily habits for mind, body and nervous system stability, and you have let go what is not serving you, we guide you into flourish, and living a life in resourceful state. A life where you die without regret.

Training, qualifications & experience

Having completed a BSc in Psychology and Sociology and then a PGCE, I embarked upon a career as a teacher. With time I increasingly developed an interest in the emotional and social dimensions of children and young people. I became an adviser for Personal, Social and Health Education for my local authority. Through this role I worked within many areas linked to mental health such as bullying, domestic violence, protective behaviours and grief and loss. My role expanded to include Lead for Social and Emotional Learning, Circle Time, Citizenship, Behaviour Management and Parenting. I went on to become Commissioner for drug services for children and young people and Commissioner for mental health services for children and young people. I was the Manager for the Healthy Schools Programme within my local authority. I became the National Strategic Lead for Healthy Schools and policy advisor to government on mental health in children and young people.

My interest and training in a 'client centred approach to supporting people in managing change', led me to discover the power of coaching and I achieved the Personal Performance Coaching Diploma as well as studying Corporate, Small Business and Youth Impact coaching diplomas. I am a Master Practitioner in NLP as well as attaining a certificate in Mindfulness as part of therapeutic practice.

I have attended a variety of training experiences lead by contemporary thought leaders such as: Richard Bandler, Connierae Andreas, Mike Dooley, Shaa Wasamund and Robert Dilts.

Through Courage Works, established by Brene Brown, I attended Daring Way and Rising Strong psycho-educational workshops.

I have a working understanding of Behaviour Change, in particular Transtheoretical Theory.

I am experienced in leading clients through The Grief Recovery Programme.

I achieved two Master Degrees – one with a focus on loss and bereavement in children and young people and the other in educational research and evaluation.

I received a diploma in Mentoring, and a certificate in ASIST – Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training. I have completed Positive Psychology Foundation level. I have a certificate for Introductory Transactional Analysis 101 from UKATA at the Berne Institute. I attained a certificate in Motivational Interviewing.

I have been trained by Deb Dana in the Clinical Application of Polyvagal Nerve Theory. I have studied ‘attachment’ with Diana Poole Heller.

I am presently studying ‘Internal Family Systems’ (IFS)  level one. I completed a course in Complex Trauma and IFS in a Practitioner Setting, led by Frank Anderson.

I have attended foundation level in Compassionate Based Therapy with Paul Gilbert.

I am a trained storyteller, having studied the foundations of storytelling, autobiographical storytelling, and storytelling interwoven with autobiographical and folk stories.

I use a variety of medium for meeting with my clients including one to one and in my confidential online consultation room.

THE OTHER SIDE OF ME STUFF-

I am committed to being active within my own community in a variety of ways. I facilitate visioning workshops for local business owners and individuals. I hold space for a body/mind/spirit bookclub at my local integrative health centre.

I have published a jointly written book Called ' Finding the song that makes your heart sing-Redefining abundant living'. This is an easy to follow guide on finding your song and making sure your heart can actually sing. It explores the reality of living in a consumer led society, and offers an alternative to abundant living. It is available through my website or makesyourheartsing.com.

I am a joint owner of Flourish, Flow and Glow.com which organises urban retreats and local networks for individuals wanting to uncover their true essence. More information on Flourishflowglow.com.

Presently, from researching and collating guidance for practitioners on emotional self care and how to avoid burn out., my own experiences as an entrepreneur and guide, and my own very near burn out, I lead a practitioner training programme called ‘Love Your Clients’. Within the Love Your Clients programme, I guide local practitioners on my three pillar approach to effectively holding space, motivating and guiding clients in a bespoke and client centred way.

With my sister practitioner we have grown bemoretree.com. An integrative, holistic approach to physical and emotional well-being. Sandra James, who jointly guides participants in the Be More Tree Programme, is a functional practitioner, naturopath and nutritionist. For more information please check out bemoretree.com.

THE REAL STUFF-

My varied and fulfilling life has presented many challenges, allowing me to learn from each experience. I have learnt to regain my resourceful state from a place of darkness and a sense of being completely lost. In reality this has enhanced my resilience and increased my understanding of how to influence challenging emotions.

I embrace the introverted side of my personality and appreciate how this sits comfortably alongside my ability to public speak, lead workshops and facilitate training. I am personally aware of the challenges for highly sensitive people.

My mission is for all to live in resourceful state. I want to guide those who desire and crave change, and assist them to access the abundance of information and up to date research on how to successfully live with challenging emotional states. Together we plan small steps to make your world a place of greater inner peace.

My curiosity and passion for learning, alongside my creative and intuitive approach, ensure I am congruent in my purpose to inspire my clients to be in resourceful state. My clients gain deep insights about themselves and are able to take action to let go of what does not serve them and live the life they desire.

Further information

Clients attaining the life they desire:

Meeting Fi is like being thrown a life line. She is so personable and genuine. She radiates goodness and a love and understanding of people. I appreciate all that Fi has shared with me but most of all that she listens 100% and never judges me. Being guided by Fi is like having an angel walking along side of me, always supporting and guiding me.

Client- Brighton

I was three years into a divorce process. I was feeling that, after years of putting everyone's needs else first and the last three years of all the parental responsibility having landed solely on me plus being financially trapped, my life had lost purpose and I couldn't see what I was going to do to while away the time until I died. Guided by Fi I have come to find a value for myself, my contribution, feel gratitude for my life and see possibilities for now and the future. I really appreciate Fi's warmth and humour. We are all feeling lost in some way when we seek help and to be met by a warm human being, still with absolute professionalism works for me.

Jane - Brighton

Since working with Fi, I have made huge changes in my life. I have found a creative outlet that brings me joy, I am looking at my relationships in new ways, I am changing the way that I work in order to live a more exciting and satisfying life. I have new strategies to challenge negative thought cycles, and I am now using writing as a revolutionary tool for understanding my thoughts and feelings. I am finding that I am able to be much braver with how I live my life, and I believe that I am finding more meaning in everything that I’m doing. Being guided by Fi is inspiring. I look forward to every meeting, and come away filled with ideas, understanding and self-love.

Grace- Brighton

Fi is an absolutely brilliant visioning facilitator. She is so welcoming and I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole 'visioning' process. I have learned things about myself and also clarified what I really want, which has been totally illuminating. Thank you Fi- you rock.

Liz. Brighton.

I’ve struggled with a lack of self-love/ self-belief and I wanted to change my doubts in what I’m able to achieve and my own distorted outlook of myself. Fi’s coaching has taught me about the power of awareness. Now noticing my own negative voice, the way I hold myself and walk down the street, I’m gradually discovering that all of my learnt behaviours can be reinvented, and it’s not too late to be who I want to be. Learning to silence the inner doubts when applying for a job after a relocation helped get me a role which challenges and excites me. I’m learning to live in the now and adopt a more positive language when referring to myself.

Fi made me feel comfortable and relaxed from the outset. I always walked away from Fi’s sessions feeling a little more positive and with a fighting spirit.

Gill M. Brighton.

I had for many years felt like I was sleep walking my way through life. I believed I was a victim with no control and that life just washed over me. I was living a safe existent which left me unhappy. Fi helped me at this time. Fi showed me genuine compassion and held a safe place for me so I could start my journey towards inner peace. Fi taught skills so I could affect positive change in my life. With Fi’s guidance I discovered my purpose. This has enabled me to live a life focused on what matters that being my core beliefs and values. I will always be grateful for the tools Fi has taught me to make positive change in my life. Fi has developed great skill to help others navigate their journey towards a happier and more fulfilling life.
