As a young child I always had my head in a book. I loved the classics such as Little Women, Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice. I dreamed of a life filled with adventure and thrills. Those stories took me away from the life I knew of poverty, hardship and never fitting in.
I wasn’t an unhappy child, but I did feel out of place. We left my dad when I was four years old and that started a cruel game where I was used as a pawn, mostly by my dad to get back at my mum. He taught me that I was forgettable, disposable and unimpressive.
I adored my mum, she had been through so much, a teenage pregnancy, an abusive second marriage and years of hardship since she was a child. She taught me that I was resilient, adaptable and strong.
I grew into a confident teenager, a grade A student with huge dreams and a barrow full of ambition. I just felt special and knew I was going to have an extraordinary life, the kind of life I had read about in stories.
I had always wanted to start a business of my own.
I just didn't know where to start!
What did I know about starting a business. Fast forward a few years and I'd attempted to start an events company, sold skincare and even learned to tattoo people's faces.
Not of this lit me up.
I realised with the help of a great coach that I valued FREEDOM more highly than anything else and that explained why my job made me feel so trapped.
I began researching and studying everything I could on the power of the mind. I found the answer I'd been seeking when I heard someone give a talk on hypnotherapy and something spoke to me.
I wanted to help people. I wanted to help them with their mindset and believe in themselves. I studied to become an accredited coach so that I could help more people.
