My Story

For a long time I had no idea what I wanted from my career. In my twenties and well into my thirties, I made choices that were mostly about pleasing other people. My journey through this time was a real struggle as I faced situations where I lacked the skills to know how to assert myself and make decisions that were in my best interest.  Instead I endured a time of being in controlling relationships, did what I thought life “expected” me to do as a “good girl”, making me miserable.  I trusted other people’s intentions without taking any measures to: 1) check out their backgrounds and, 2) cover myself in the event things went wrong – and they DID!! BIGTIME!!

When I was younger I always believed that I would be the type of person who would never get into an abusive relationship, or allow others to take advantage of me. But what I realised is that these types of situations don’t come with a red flag saying ‘beware”……instead I just followed what I felt was the right thing to do then BAM !!- there I am stuck in the nightmares of all nightmares – a few years back everything that was important to me was taken away, my son, my money, my job, leaving me in a bad relationship feeling stuck and scared.

What did I do? I blindly continued to believe these people would follow through on their promises, or they would change. But they never did…….and I doubt they never will. Instead the struggle became so painful that I remember praying for a miracle…..then something happened……no, it wasn’t a miracle, but it saved me from the pain and struggle I faced daily.  I began to change myself.

At first there were a lot of things about myself that I wasn’t willing to believe or accept were true about me – I was in denial. However there was no where else to go other than face more pain and struggle, or work through these issues I had about my own character. I became a course junkie (whereas now I know there is a far cheaper and faster way through this journey and that is with the help of a qualified life coach).  This journey took me 5 years – in which time I dealt with my “demons” – it was far from easy and it had it’s own times of pain (but with a life coach, you’re not alone) as I was.

Today I am following my passion to help people find peace and happiness through becoming their authentic selves (instead of the programmed robots that society creates us as). I have a wonderful relationship, great friends, and I live in the present (so things that would make someone less aware curl up in bed for days on end and complain to anyone who will listen – which use to be me!) focussing on what’s important in my life, such as my son, my relationships and my business – so life is so passionate that I look forward to each new day.

Sure I still have life’s dramas – possibly more, but I have the tools and skills to let them go so I don’t miss the backflip my son does into the pool, or the taste of a well cooked meal, or catch the humour behind a joke.

So, if you’re struggling out there with issues of caring what others think of you, or the scam that happened to you 2 years ago, or the weight that just won’t budge no matter what you do, or how to reignite the love and communication back into your relationship, or get you kids talking to you again, or just getting on with life by stopping the procrastination and grabbing the life you know you deserve – I can tell you, I know the journey is worth it!!!
