If you had asked me 9 years ago if I wanted to run my own business and become a Life Coach and Yoga Teacher, I would have shrugged my shoulders and probably said I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do! In fact, I didn’t even really know what a Life Coach was back then! That was about the time I arrived home after a year teaching English in South Korea. I arrived back at the start of the credit crunch in the UK, with a huge amount of debt and no job or place to call my own. So I moved back in with my parents as a 30 year old and wondered w.t.f. am I going to do now?!
That’s when my soul searching began. I started to read personal development books and really think about what it was that I wanted to do with my life and get myself out of debt. It’s taken long time to get to the point where I am now! I now know exactly the life I want and am taking action to create it. I think me having all those years of boring job, after boring job, thinking ‘is this it, there’s got to be something more out there for me!’ has helped to birth my business. I know now that if I’d hired a Life Coach at that time, the whole process would have been a lot smoother, quicker and worth every penny!
My love of coaching grew from my love of personal development and using the tools and techniques on myself to get to a place of clarity and action. I eventually did get to experience coaching and immediately knew and felt how powerful it is. I decided to become qualified as a coach myself and trained for 6 months and am certified as a Life Coach. There is no better feeling than helping others and this is what my business is all about! Coaching really shines a light on your blind spots and the things that are holding you back. The things that you can’t see yourself. That’s why you get better and quicker results with a Coach than you do by going it alone.
I also have a love for teaching and my corporate career did go down the training route but I just wasn’t teaching things that I was passionate about. I’ve always had a love of Yoga so it seemed natural to go down that route and it fits nicely with the personal development and coaching and gives a whole, integrative approach by bringing your body into the equation as well. We are multi layered beings, so why wouldn’t you bring your body and whole physiology into the equation as well!
Then along came the Desire Map! I just loved the book and Danielle LaPorte’s approach to goal setting and doing (or rather feeling!) life came into the mix as well. When I found out that I could be an official Desire Map Facilitator, I jumped right in there! I now teach Desire Map + Yoga workshops and the next one is on 28th May. You can find out more here. I bring the principles of the Desire Map into my coaching also.
A new element I will be bringing into my work with clients will be essential oils. The healing power of plants has been known since the year dot and if they were good enough for Cleopatra herself, they are good enough for me! I love doTERRA products as they are 100% pure, organic and therapeutic grade so I will be talking about them a lot more and integrating them into my Yoga classes and coaching. Have a look at the products here if you like!
All these things are my passion and I’m big advocate for following your passions in life. It’s where your secret sauce is! My purpose is to teach all the things I’ve learned and to help others to create a life they love. Loving yourself is always the first step. It all starts on the inside.
Life is so short and we really have no idea how much time we have here on this earth, so I strongly believe, now more than ever, that you need to consciously create and be present in your life rather than being on autopilot most of the time and just letting life happen to you and pass on by. You are the author of your own story and there is no better time than NOW to change the ending if you don’t like where it’s heading.
The words on my logo are ‘engage, inspire and evolve’ and I want to do that for myself but also for anybody I work with. I want you to be engaged in the process and learning, inspired to keep moving forward and ultimately evolve into the resourceful, amazing person you already are!
I strongly believe all my clients have all the answers they need inside of them, I just facilitate the journey. I particularily love to help women because I think the world badly needs more of the feminine, now more then ever! We women need to step into our power and heart spaces and lead with love, kindness and compassion.
So, if you are not feeling good about your life or feeling stuck and unsure about what direction to take your career or any element of your life then I can help you look deep inside and find the answers you seek. I will help you create an inspiring vision and take inspired action to get you there. I will keep you accountable along the way and ensure you stay on track.
