I love to travel and I love fashion. So when my partner and I moved to London in 1992, we had a great time building a life together. My career in fashion retail was on the rise and I was loving the challenge and excitement of it. I was at the top of my game.
Until I wasn't
The first thing to go was my relationship so I moved out.
The next was my finances. Now on my own I battled with the high costs of London so I decided to move to Scotland. I had changed everything but ever the optimist I was excited and hopeful to start a new life.
Then, as I was about to turn 40 my mum died and it only got worst form there.
I missed my friends and family, I was getting bullied at my new job and then I caught my new boyfriend cheating. That was the straw that broke the camel's back.
I could no longer hold it together. This once strong, independent woman started having panic attacks. Eventually I could only feel extremes of devastation or numbness as I tried to continue to work.
All kinds of depressing questions raced through my head: "Was I ever going to get married again and have children? What is my purpose? Was I wasting my life? " I felt clueless.
Through life coaching, counselling and meditation I started the road to recovery.
I then started to study these approaches so that I could help others . I studied Coaching at Cambridge, counselling at UHI Inverness ( COSCA) and Meditation with the Mindfulness Association at Kagyu Samye Ling.
I gave back by volunteering my counselling skills at a doctors surgery. I coached people from the unemployed to company directors and witnessed them unleashed their unique potential. How?
By raising awareness to acknowledge choices, habits and beliefs so that it facilitates a shift that supports your goals. Seeing the changes is amazing and so rewarding. I love this work!
I am in a great place now, where I wake up with gratitude every day. I am content and happy every day. I have learnt how to deal with stress through my knowledge of counselling, meditation and journeying practices. Not sweating the small stuff. I love my life, family and friends.
I believe that the answers are within us and by listening to your inner voice and trusting it, you begin to release the real authentic you. I can show you how to become the observer of negative anxious thoughts . I merge the corporate world with an holistic approach to include balance and harmony.
And now through everything I have learnt I would love to help you. Are you ready to shake up your current situation and make a change?
It's time to invest in YOU.
