I'm an award-winning transformational coach & therapist
My story is your story. We can all change and learn from our stories.
When Psychometrically tested, I come out as an unusual mix of right and left brain. My A-levels reveal much the same: English, French AND Economics. A degree in English Literature, a love of theatre, a career in PR AND also marketing and business and making millions. A sensible maverick. So, I may say that life and synchronicity led me to my present vocation. To my life’s purpose.
Life behind a mask.
A business success story at age 40
Those nine years taught me a lot about business but even more about emotional wellbeing. I handled the PR for some of the world’s leading personal development experts including Tony Robbins, Robert Holden, Edward de Bono and Brandon Bays was exposed to their fascinating methodologies. I sought a greater understanding of human behaviour which led me to train in NLP with its founder Richard Bandler and in hypnosis with Paul McKenna. However, behind the mask and the mindset understanding, I was often exhausted and addicted. My fragile immune system was pushed to breaking point with stress and rich food and alcohol-filled days and the more successful I looked on the outside, the unhappier I was on the inside. I turned to a myriad of therapies – including psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and complementary treatments such as Ayurvedic medicine, acupuncture and kinesiology. Some worked well and others didn’t. What I discovered was that good health is a path we all have to navigate for ourselves.
Thinking that I had dodged a bullet
Synchronicity and finding my life’s purpose
As I considered my second divorce and hitting a glass ceiling in my marketing career, an email popped into my inbox inviting me to train in clinical hypnotherapy.
So I trained in it and added a Weight Loss practitioner course and then undertook NLP coaching (to refresh what I’d qualified in during the 90s when I worked with Richard Bandler, Tony Robbins and others). I was catapulted into a new world as a therapist and found that not only did I have the transferable skills, background, intelligence, understanding and passion to make this new career work but I also had the intuition and compassion born of years of finding my best self to be able to heal others.
