I have trained in Pyschosynthesis Psychology (PG Dip), “Calling In The One” Coaching and Innate Health, otherwise known as The Three Principles. All of these disciplines are incredibly profound modalities and take into consideration the whole of the individual – body, feelings and mind.
I have been coaching and working with individuals for over 12 years. Within coaching, I focus on guiding a person, team (or indeed company) from where they currently reside to where they are looking to move towards. Once the desired goal, aim, vision or target has been identified, the work allows for any obstructions to this forward movement to be removed.
When working with goal setting and achievement of vision (both personally and professionally) one cannot deal only with external situations (systems, protocols, team structure etc) – the internal world of personal beliefs, opinions, perceived limitations, ideas, objectives etc must also be part of the picture if we are to realise potential; for we bring all of ourselves to the table and that which is unconscious or invisible will be playing a huge part in what is playing out. If we deal only with the symptoms, the cause will be left unidentified, therefore allowing for a repeat of the ‘problem’.
It is my job to help to identify the thinking that has thus far been out of sight and acting as a barrier and bring this into visibility so we are able to build on a level playing field. It is imperative to merge both the internal and external worlds to implement lasting change – this is where the real magic happens!
I was born and raised in London into a loving family and warm environment that from an outsiders point of view was ‘normal’ and priviledged. Nothing about my upbringing seemed ‘hard’ or a struggle – I had all the things any child / teenager could hope for – I attended great schools, had a top notch education, a busy social life and moved through my years adhering to the status quo. Outside, all was ‘shiny’, whilst inside, I was in turmoil.
I felt ‘less than’, as if I was ‘on the outside looking in’ and was riddled with anxiety, worry and a desperate need to fit in. I developed a sometimes debilitating relationship with OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) that left me exhausted and exasperated. I moved through life with a constant sense of dread and dis-ease although deep inside, I believed strongly that there was more to life than I was experiencing.
I filled this disturbance in my inside world with anything that provided me with a temporary sense of relief and belonging (substances, people, addictive processes etc), which created an even greater disturbance and void within me that eventually brought me to my knees. I was bereft, empty, scared and I wasn’t too sure there was any getting up again.
My belief in life and the knowing that I was far greater than I had yet known, capable of amazing things that had always felt just outside of my grasp, kept me forging forward. I read, studied, travelled and continually asked the questions that led me to the sources that could provide the answers. My hunger for knowledge of this kind was and still is, insatiable. This desire to know, brought me to the world of psychology with a strong desire to understand the Self and so in 2006, I commenced learning with those who I believed had profound knowledge to share.
Today, I clearly see that our internal worlds are our biggest inhibitors. We can believe, if only ‘this circumstance’ or ‘that person’ would change, all will be well, but it is an inside-out job and whether we believe or not, we are always creating our experience. I am interested in all of who you are and welcome in every emotion, feeling and thought. I am here to show you that the key to your desired experience of life is in your hand and that absolutely nothing is blocking your path to love, joy, success and happiness… apart from what you think is in the way. Once you see this, it becomes possible to let go of all limitation, thus allowing you to become the greatest version of your self and living and loving your best life.
It has not been an easy journey, but life doesn’t come with any promises or guarantees and if we are to have the full spectrum of the human experience, we get to experience the full spectrum of human emotion. One cannot know the meaning of up if they have never experienced down!
Today, I am living a life that the younger version of myself would not have thought possible. I am human, so I have my moments, but that constant feeling of anxiety, sense of worthlessness and low grade depression are a thing of the past. I have a connection with life that used to be a distant dream, together with a strong faith and belief that life is good and I am deeply committed to helping others along this path. We all deserve to fulfill our dreams and live a life we love and it is truly my honour to walk with you in this direction.
To your Evolution!
