My Coaching Story
Even at the top of my career as Global Sales & Training Executive for the iconic fashion brand Camilla, I wasn't fulfilled. There was always something niggling at me though, I wanted more.
It took me 12 years to final say to myself, 'enough is enough.'
These were the 4 things which transformed my life completely - I only wish I had done them sooner.
1. I stopped and I asked myself this question.
"What will it cost me if I don't make a change in my life? What will my life be like in 5, 10, 20 year from now if I stay the same?" The answer scared me.
2. I reached out for help and invested in a coach.
I realised that the world would not explode if I reached out for help. I learned, as a result, how incredible it was to have someone in my corner, cheering me on and believing in me until I could do it for myself.
3. I became aware of the subconscious thoughts and beliefs I had about myself.
I’m a procrastinator, I'm too sensitive, I'm an overthinker, I am a people pleaser – these were merely labels I allowed myself to hold on to as a way to feel safe. Safe in my comfort zone, where I would never have to face my fears; my fear of failure, my fear of success and my biggest fear, not being good enough.
4. I accepted that I had a choice.
I had a choice to either stay the same or to make a change. The moment I made the choice, was the moment everything changed. It was the moment I let go of my excuses, got to know myself and learnt to love myself again.
You see, many of us have not developed the gift that is spotting the limits in our thinking and changing them to create growth in your life instead of blocking it.
If I know one thing it is this; our thoughts create our reality. Every thought we think directly impacts the results we gain in our life, because our thoughts impact our decision and our decisions determine our actions and our actions determine our result. Isn’t it time to take control and create thoughts that support us instead of tearing us down?
Life is a beautiful rollercoaster
I know all to well what this beautiful roller coaster can throw our way. I am a single mum to a cheeky 3 year old boy and an 8 month old boy who still enjoys getting up at 1am while I have been running my own business. The juggle is real, I get that. I also know just how possible it is to have it all and live the life of your dreams. I get nothing but joy and satisfaction teaching others to do exactly the same.
I have experienced the pain and sadness of divorced parents, the loss of my sister, disordered eating, anxiety and the fear of not being enough. Through coaching, I began to get to know myself, deal with the impacts of each of these experiences and become proud of who I was, without needing a title, a salary or postcode as my validation.
From letting go of old limiting beliefs to becoming disciplined enough to smash my big scary goals, my life has completely transformed. I learned to love my body and love my mind enough to follow my passion, creating success in all areas of my life all while being on the crazy ride of motherhood.
My goal is simple; to impact as many lives as possibly so that they can learn to fall in love with who they truly are and create the future that they are proud of and content with. Let me help you to design the life you love and create the transformation to get you there.
