This is me at a coaching retreat helping women to find their inner goddess...the truth of who they are.
What you see is a 40 something public speaker, Life Coach, Hypnotherapist, Meditation and Yoga Teacher... but I haven't always had this lust for life.
My own core limiting belief used to be that I was 'unloveable'.... and I had no idea, until the story got bigger and louder until I couldn't ignore it anymore.
I was approaching 39, single, no kids.... and this story hit it's peak. I had 'achieved' so much on paper- amazing career as a high level manager in the fitness industry, my dream home, nice cars, amazing physique, buzzing social life... seems great, right?
I had low self esteem and was in the ever demanding fitness industry, Surrounded by ideas of perfection, I started obsessively healthy eating and 'finally' got the recognition I thought I wanted...as it happens I was a size 8 and became utterly miserable....but I thought this was what life was all about! An how could I feel miserable if I 'had' everything I desired? How could I say how I truly felt when no one would believe me?
The stress of my job, the hours and effort I was putting in and lack of nourishment lead to weight gain (when I started eating again), ill health and burnout. I thought I just needed a rest and a reset. I thought my story was all about 'work'.
I met my Life Coach and Mentor on day 2 of a Yoga retreat. I started crying and literally couldn't stop. I didn't realise how unhappy and exhausted I had become. I was at the later stages of burnout and I needed help.
At that point I became 'consciously unhappy'.
Finally I could put some sort of perspective on my life. I knew where I was and knew I needed things to change.
Through coaching I identified my core limiting belief. This came from childhood trauma. I had low level anxiety for my whole life yet thought 'I was just a worrier' (no one is a natural born worrier). I was a massive people pleaser in a bid to always be liked and never rock the boat.
As a result I was telling myself stories around what my life 'should' look like. The job I 'should' have to be seen as successful and to be 'liked'. The 'crazy' love life with inappropriate partners and drama to match. The 'independent' woman who can have everything.
Reality? I felt unfulfilled. Miserable. Full of self loathing and I was lonely. My 'unloveable' story I knew nothing about was being kept alive by the life I was leading.
I worked on a 12 month coaching programme, and further therapy and as a result I:
👉 quit my corporate career and set up my own Coaching, Therapy and Lifestyle business
👉 became a qualified Life Coach, accredited to the ICF
👉became a qualified Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapy student
I also created unconditional love for myself, that enabled me to:
👉 lose and stabilise weight so my body is healthy without restriction
👉 create a healthy mindset and curb the negative self talk
👉minimise stress and anxiety to normal healthy levels
👉be happy in my own skin, to be myself and LOVE who I am
My purpose is to help people find unconditional love for themselves, the type of love that doesn't just come from AN Other.
