When I fell into a job in NHS, I thought I was sorted. I had a career for life, with a clear progression path and a pension plan.
After the honeymoon period I started to struggle. I knew I was good at my job and could deliver results, but I felt unsupported, unheard and isolated.
The pressure coming from different directions with conflicting demands became just too much and after twelve years, it made me leave the NHS.
Though I value the people I met there and the experiences I’ve had along the way, I wish I’d known then what I know now. I wish I’d known how to set boundaries to make the impact I wanted to make without burning out. If I had – it would have made my life so much easier and more fruitful.
However, looking for the way out led me to coaching. I now have a business I love where I help women be more and have more by doing less.
I started my career as a health coach because I wanted to heal my own relationship with food. Then I discovered that coaching women around eating and body image really lights me up and I became an Eating Psychology Coach.
This is the road I’d walked. I’d been hungry and angry pretty much most of my life. I’d been on every diet there was, in the process developed an eating disorder, messed up my relationship with my body and stayed hiding until circumstances improved.
The way I ate was a direct reflection of what my life was like. When I was happy and fulfilled, I ate healthy, nourishing foods. When I felt stressed, worked long hours and felt like I was failing on all fronts, I reached for comfort food and ate until my stomach hurt.
Breaking this cycle wasn’t easy. Overtime, I discovered how different foods affect me and how to balance them in a way that works for me. Eventually, this made my life more exciting and enjoyable and then food stopped being the only source of comfort.
With clients, I focus on finding the tools and solutions that work for each of them.
My clients are often stressed-out women working in a corporate environment. Some of them come home every night and eat a pint of ice cream just to cope with what went on in their day, some need help in building their leadership skills and want to show up in their lives more powerfully.
When we work together we’ll take stock of what’s going on in your life, what what you want to achieve and what behaviours you might be willing to let go off.
We’ll build on your strengths and I will introduce you to tools that will help you achieve your goals with more ease than ever before.
My dream is for women to embrace who they are, stop denying themselves and follow their passion. It’s your time to step up and be the leader you want to be.
