My early experience of life was dealing with death. When I was nine years old, my father died suddenly of a heart attack, and then the unthinkable happened, eleven years later, my mother died of breast cancer when I was 21.
Due to my parents early passing I have always been interested in the relationship between unresolved issues and illness. If we do not process negative emotions, these can manifest in the body as physical illness. I believe coaching and therapy will eventually become as mainstream as a gym membership as we start to accept the distinct correlation between physical and mental health.
From a very young age, I was always pondering the big questions, Why am I here? What is the point of life? Where do we go when we die?
I was a curious child, but I did not want to be sad and I was resistant to showing emotions. On the outside, I did a good job of functioning, but inside I felt depressed, lacklustre and I developed a habit of pushing love away from me. Over the years I sort comfort in relationships, food, drugs, alcohol, the Church, shopping and working. Most of the time I felt exhausted by life, misunderstood and deeply lonely.
Eventually, I started to listen to my inner voice and found a therapist to finally talk about my feelings. Initially I was reluctant to do so, I felt ashamed of seeking help, but I quickly saw the benefit and I have gained so much from therapy, coaching, yoga and developing a Spiritual practice that it has transformed my life. I finally feel connected, grateful for my existence, that I am not alone and that I am supported in many ways.
I was so inspired by the support and guidance that I received, that I knew I wanted to pursue a career in healing and in service to others. I sold my London based fashion consignment business Chic&Seek, packed my bags and moved to Los Angeles to delve deeply into the study of Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica in preparation to become a Compassionate Coach.
My intention is to serve you as a coach, a teacher, a storyteller and a builder of community. I believe we are Spiritual Souls having a Human Experience and this planet is like a big school with many lessons.
I will help you transform, using your Pain as your Power to live fully and choose a life motivated by Love rather than Fear. (COACHING)
