I wasn’t always this confident!
As a child and teenager and even in to my 20’s, I was an anxious person, a worrier, sensitive and with very little self esteem. I never felt good enough, or that my opinion counted and I truly believed I was the ugliest woman in the world.
At school I was shy and was bullied and picked upon. I wasn’t popular and I felt like I didn’t fit in. At University I realised I wasn’t completely weird, found my best friend but still struggled with anxiety and low confidence. I couldn’t even walk in to the cafeteria on my own I was so nervous.
When my long term and very negative relationship came to an end in my early 30’s, I finally had the time and space and tools to transform myself and my life. I remember clearly sitting on my sofa one day. I was low in mood, emotionally exhausted and feeling alone. I was confident in my job (supporting women to make positive changes in their lives!) and had advanced in my career but apart from work I felt I had nothing and was unhappy and unfulfilled in my life. It was then, sitting on my sofa, that I had a moment that changed my life. I asked myself ‘What is more scary? Staying as I am or facing my fears and putting myself out there?’
And the realisation was that I was more scared to stay in the life I had. To remain stuck and unfulfilled.
And so I began my transformation.
It took a while but here I am. I found love, gave up everything and moved from Scotland to Germany. I have a beautiful son and I am a successful Certified Life Coach. From the shy girl who couldn’t speak out in class, I now run regular seminars and courses and I even speak at International events!
30 years of experience, my Psychology background, my years of experience in mental health services supporting women and with my own personal experiences, I have gained empathy, compassion and understanding of the struggles women face. And I am passionate about sharing my skills, knowledge and tools with you and supporting you to transform your self and to transform your life.
