Do you feel like you're on the go all the time?
Feel like you have a to-do list as long as both arms and have no time to do the things that make you feel nourished?
Do you feel stressed, feel burnt-out, maybe even depressed?
You want to make changes, but don't know where to start, feel trapped, lack confidence to make changes?
I have my own personal experience on how to recover and rebuild your life from burnout, anxiety and other mental health issues.
Why choose me?
A decade ago, to many people I was living the dream. I had the high profile job, I was well respected at work, I had the nice house, flash car, money, but I wasn't happy.
I would be in the office by 7.30am and I would often still be there until 11pm. I had a young daughter at home, a partner and I hardly ever saw them. I was under so much pressure at work to perform at my best, that I wasn't taking my breaks, but very soon what did start to break was me.
A job I had once loved became one that I dreaded. I came home from work crying every night. I would be sick before I went in every day. I stopped doing things I enjoyed, such as going to the gym, eating healthy and socialising with my friends. I would even go a whole week without washing my hair, because I just didn't have time.
I started to make mistakes and the Company came down on me like a tonne of bricks. This is when the panic attacks started. I didn't tell anyone about them, because I felt stupid and didn't think anyone would understand.
One by one my responsibilities were taken away from me and my confidence and self-esteem was at rock bottom. This ended in me collapsing and being rushed to hospital. That was the end of my 14 year career at that Company, because I couldn't go back there.
This turned out to be a blessing, because I started to talk about my panic attacks and got my life back under control and realised what was important to me. It wasn't flash cars, a big house and money I couldn't spend. It was quality of life, self-care, family, friends and a work/life balance.
What I've learned is there's always something you can change and there's always something you can do.
As your coach I will help you to achieve goals by eliminating the negatives and developing positive habits, helping you to become the very best you can.
I will motivate you to change things in your life that make you unhappy.
I will help you to work out the next chapter in your life. I will work with you to unlock the potential and dispel those feelings of discontentment and insecurity.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a certified NLP Practitioner, qualified to master level in mindfulness. I have a diploma in Life Coaching and qualified in Advanced Nutrition and Weight Management.
I have been where you are myself. I get what it's like to be in a high-pressure role, to have to strive to always be at your best, and eventually that work/life balance becomes disjointed and breaks you.
I am an Award Winning Coach and get results with my proven coaching methods. Visualise how your life will look like in 6 months time compared to how it does now. What will happen if you do nothing? Can you afford to do nothing?
I will work with you to identify what is holding you back and help you to recover and rebuild your life.
