I reached a stage in my life where, despite having all the things so many of us are conditioned to believe we need, in order to be happy… I wasn’t. At times, I think I convinced myself it was just a mid life crisis, whatever the heck that really means, and at other times, I truly felt like I was going mad!
Despite knowing I had so much to be happy and grateful for, it felt like there was a gapping hole inside of me and no matter how I tried, I wasn’t able to figure out why that was, or how to fix it. So what did I do…
Well, after some soul searching, I decided to take a coaching course in the hope of finding that missing piece. Wow, what a great decision! It felt like someone had opened my eyes to a whole new world. I began to see and hear things differently and as with most things in my life, I immersed myself completely in the world of coaching, which seemed to lend itself so naturally to my passion for self development and growth. Wanting to know and understand as much as I could about the human mind and what makes us behave the way we do, I went on to study NLP, Time Line Therapy, Hypnosis, EFT, and a number of other ‘alternative’ therapies and approaches. This has given me a vast array of tools and techniques, that allow me to adapt my style to suit you and any particular challenge you might be facing.
Making the decision to look at myself has taken me on an incredible journey of self discovery. As a result, I’m so much happier and content within myself and as a result of that, I’m happy with my life. Not only have I grown as a person, but as a wife and mother too. I enjoy an amazing relationship with my man of 29 years, Paul, and as a Mum to three of the greatest things that ever happened to me, my beloved boys, Phil, Jack and Connor.
Was it all plain sailing? Of course……. not! But somehow, as I discovered myself, the hole inside me began to close and as it did, all the anger, frustration and sense of dissatisfaction I’d unknowingly been carrying around within me seemed to disappear right along with it and in it’s place… I found peace and contentment with myself and with my life.
