All paths lead to coaching....





Stuck at the outset


Not that long ago I was in a terrible state. Miserable. I was stuck in a world of shoulds, have tos and other people’s problems and expectations, unhealthy patterns of people pleasing and abandoning myself, in fear of judgement, fear of criticism. I was unable to speak up for my own needs. In fact, I could barely perceive my own needs, wants or preferences, in fact, if one bubbled up, I would quite often talk myself out of it. Enduring the painful status quo.


The empathy trap


I took on other people’s problems, other people’s feelings and thought they were mine to fix. I spent most of my energy trying to fix other people’s problems, if I am being honest with you. I was overworking myself, trying to fit huge amounts of work into a small amount of time before my battery ran low. Which happened every day, and it was happening sooner and sooner each day.


Breaking point


Puh! It is really hard to think back to that time, even though it wasn’t that long ago at all. I was a completely different person.


Luckily for me I had a huge mental breakdown. My body pulled the plug on my energy supply. If I were a mobile phone battery, I was down to 12% and still I had kept trying to function like I was on 120%.


I would have crying fits, my body felt like a lump of lead, I couldn’t think straight anymore. And for the first few weeks, all I could do was stare out into the garden and watch the bees on the clover. Which was beautiful by the way.


The Turnaround


I was lucky I had this breakdown. It meant I now had the impetus and the space to change my life around completely. Find my interests and follow them, find my joy and follow it, start removing things from my life that were no longer serving me and adding lots of and lots of thing that were.


I found many amazing inspiring people to guide me through my transformation.

Same but different

Now I am a completely different person. Although I am the same person I always was, I was able to remove tons of conditioning and judgements and rubbish that had built on top of my pure nature. I was able to uncover my authentic self and start living the way I really wanted.


What to do with it all?


So here I am. Transformed. And I am sitting on all these amazing tools, insights, knowledge, awareness, and I am bursting to share these with you. No matter where you are in your life right now. Hopefully you are not as miserable as I was, and maybe much further on your personal development.


Know what you really know


I started to let myself know what I really know. Things like, “this person isn’t good for you”, “this job isn’t good for you”, “you have abandoned your own needs again and again”, “you are afraid to speak up”, “you have forgotten who you are”.


When I allowed those truths to come up and looked at them…then other things started to come up like “you can chose to go another way”, “you are the boss of your life” and “you are allowed to speak up for your own needs, desires and preferences.”


Feel what you really feel


I started to let myself feel what I really feel. After working through a lot of feelings I had been ignoring, and letting them in and through me, (which was intense! But totally worth it!) I started to trust the sensations in my body to indicate my preferences. I started to allow my feelings to guide me.


Say what you really mean and do what you really want


I started to say what I really mean. “I don’t like this. I am going to change it.” and let myself do what I really want.


Like: follow the energetic breadcrumbs, the last hot trail of what lights me up. Doing new things every day, investing money in myself to learn things I really want to know about and use in my life. Registering for online courses in the US which meant I had to be vulnerable in a group and also, be in classes until midnight because of the time difference.


  • I say no to things I do not want to do.

  • I say YES to things I REALLY want to do.

  • I allow myself to change my mind, at any given point.

  • I can decide whether people’s advice serves me or not.

  • I allow myself to try things out and GIVE UP at any given time.

This is why


I feel so free.

I want this for you too.


I choose my thoughts, my feelings, my beliefs every day anew.


I want this for you too.


I choose to keep what serves me and discard the rest.


I want this for you too.


I am a thousand times happier and healthier and I feel so expansive every single day.


I want this for you too.

Before my breakdown, I felt so tiny. So small, so insignificant, so overlooked, under appreciated and generally rubbish.


I do not want this for anyone!


So this is why I created this programme Authentically You.


I want to guide you through your biggest and most beautiful transformation so that you can also live the life you really want and love.

Love that you can try something and give it up at any time without judging yourself or fear being judged as lacking in stamina, commitment or tenacity. How liberating!

Also, it means there are no wrong decisions. 😉 You can choose something new, or choose to back to what you gave up. Just try things out.
