My vision is for a planet filled with people who care. Inspired individuals who look after themselves and collectively care about each other, their communities and the environment. A world where everyone follows their passions and purpose, creating healthy and sustainable lifestyles that they love.
It might sound like long way from the world we live in today, but I truly believe in big change being possible if we start, like Ghandi has said with each one of us “being the change we wish to see”.
I have held this vision since I was a little girl. But, along the way I got side tracked from it by an addiction to doing too much. I had perfectionist tendencies, always sought to people please and found it very hard to switch off and relax. This combination caused me to constantly push myself as a high flyer, determined to exceed expectations of others, always striving to deliver my very best.
In 2007 I developed repetitive strain injury in both hands, wrists and arms. My body used to sweat so much that I had to change my clothes three times each day. I ignored the signs that I needed to slow down and eventually burnt out. I developed post viral fatigue and extreme dizziness (labyrinthitis). I was bed ridden for 6 months.
In 2008 despite being exhausted physically and emotionally, on another level I experienced something of an awakening. In pushing myself to the limits I suddenly realized that I could go no further unless I found a way to turn everything around. I connected with an internal longing to do so much more with my life, fuelled by the energy of creativity and inspiration.
I took some time out to explore what really made me come alive on the inside. I reflected on my life and the underlying natural passions that had influenced my interests over the years. When reflected on my key life experiences, previous challenges I had overcome, my natural talents and the skills I had developed along the way, I began to connect the dots. I uncovered what resonated as my true purpose ‘helping others transform their lives’, which is the essence of the work I do today.
Through my experience of burnout I learnt the importance of trusting and honouring my intuition and body wisdom. I released the root cause thinking that had kept me stuck in negative patterns of struggle. I gave myself permission to take care of myself as a priority so that I could give to others from a place of plenty, rather than running on empty.
In 2009 I founded my business. Since that time it has become my mission to raise awareness of burnout, fast being labeled the 21st Century Syndrome, and to help facilitate a rapid road to recovery for others. My current work harnesses my passions, knowledge and skills in a very unique way.
I have trained with first class educational institutions in order to combine cutting edge coaching with art psychotherapy, martial arts, meditation and modern day spirituality. I partner with energy workers in addition to medical and nutritional specialists in order to deliver exclusive transformational VIP days and restorative retreats.
I have worked with people all over the world and become brilliant at helping others discover their power, passions and purpose. I act as a catalyst for a powerful process that shifts lives from Burnout to Brilliance, enabling exceptional individuals to make the massive impact in the world that they are truly here to make.
I love what I do, and I do what I love. No two days or clients are ever the same, which keeps things fresh and fulfilling. My life is very different from the way it was before I burnt out. Now my work truly energises me and I have a healthier balance between work, rest and play. I am always learning and looking for innovative ways to keep moving forward. My husband and two daughters help keep me grounded and excited by the potential that each new day brings..
