I changed my life – let me help you change yours.
I've been there...
I grew up in South London within a large hardworking family with strong values (one of 7 siblings), with the importance of becoming a ‘work horse’ rather than learning how to be emotionally intelligent. Like most of my siblings, I was expected to work full time from 16-year-old, earning the best salary I could working up the ladder of success – which I did.
I spent many years fliting from job to job chasing the money, working as an estate agent, in marketing, accounts, transportation, schools and the operational field to name a few. Following my creative side, I also co-owned a florist and self-published a children’s book titled: Pc Rob Has a Very Important Job Talking About Strangers, but never felt fulfilled.
It took a life-threatening illness to really look at my life and explore what really makes me feel fulfilled – some would say my life purpose. I then took a very courageous leap of faith, completely changing my career, training in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Transactional and Transformational Life Coaching, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).
My life definitely hasn’t been straight forward, experiencing depression, a divorce, a period in temporary accommodation, domestic abuse and a life-threatening illness. However, on a positive note, I do believe that my life experiences have been a major part of my education/training, and without overcoming these difficult life experiences, I am not sure I would be as equipped to help others overcome theirs.
So here I am, finally feeling fulfilled, doing something I really love and am good at – helping others. I know it’s a cliché, but one thing I have learnt is that life really IS short so it is important that we enjoy it.
