This month, 30 years ago, I walked into the campus of my University in Glasgow, Scotland and there I began a journey that has taken me on a 30-year career.
It wasn’t a surprise that I studied Psychology at University. Growing up with a depressed father (and where it was never discussed) had a big impact on me. I grew up anxious, lacking in self-confidence and alone in my own head. My parents were loving but emotionally distant and personal things were never openly discussed. We joke now in my family that I have all the emotions of the 4 of us (I have a younger brother). I’m highly sensitive and emotional. A double-edged sword that means I am sensitive but also serves me well in my job giving me compassion and empathy.
I wanted to understand how people work and to understand myself. Unable to get the answers from my family, I looked externally for the answers. And my degree in psychology did just that.
From there, I volunteered and worked in mental health charities. I was using my Psychology and Coaching skills here, supporting women to make emotional and practical transformations in order to be happy.
After 20 years I decided to go into private practice and I moved to Munich, Germany and trained as a Life Coach. And I’m still so passionate about supporting women to become the best version of themselves. Over the years I have worked with over 1000 women to make positive changes in themselves and their lives. And from all my experience, this is what I know;
You are not defined by your past
You can change
The brain is not fixed
You can get unstuck and live the life you want
You can silence your inner critic and be more positive and happy
I saw the change in myself; from shy and anxious to confident and outgoing standing up in front of others as a workshop facilitator and speaker. And I’ve worked with hundreds of women and seen the results over and over again.
Even if you don’t believe change is possible in yourself, I know it is. And I want to work with you until you feel that change that I know can happen and to give you the tools and resources to become resilient and happy.
If any of this resonated with you, I’d love to talk with you more. You can book time with me (free of course) here.
