You can hear my personal story of illness and the return to health here:
If you prefer the written version here’s a summary:
Having entered the world of marketing as a driven and ambitious professional, I experienced first-hand the effects of living life at 100mph. Living every day from a ‘work-hard, play-hard’ mentality, it wasn’t long before I suffered the effects of burnout; facing the diagnosis of a ‘lifelong’ autoimmune condition – Hashimoto’s disease.
My future seemed bleak with rapidly deteriorating health, the potential loss of my career and a social life that was drawing to a close. Above all else, I felt I had become a shadow of myself and lost my sense of ‘me’.
In 2016 I discovered the Lightning Process® and I never looked back. I rediscovered what it was like to have the prospect of a career, the opportunity to see friends and the return of my health. Above all, I rediscovered ‘me’ and I got my oomph back.
This brings you to the person here today; driven by the desire to help passionate individuals pursue their dreams, free from burnout and stress-triggered chronic illness. While I have personally experienced a number of holistic approaches, I am a strong advocate of NLP coaching, and the Lightning Process® in particular, because it has helped me enormously on my own journey.
With a Psychology (BSc Hons), I am trained in coaching, NLP and hypnotherapy (diploma, advanced and masters level) as well as the Lightning Process by Phil Parker, a leading authority in the field of NLP and coaching, and designer of the Lightning Process®. I use this experience to offer health and performance coaching specialising in stress, burnout prevention and rebuilding health from chronic issues.
My other career has been in the fast-paced world of marketing so I am well-versed in the challenges faced in this pressured environment. Today’s deadlines can overwhelm us and thankfully organisations are becoming more aware of the stress their employees are under and beginning to offer them innovative solutions like NLP.
