I am a business owner, personal development junkie and kickass mum (no really, I know Taekwondo!).
I love the life I have created but it takes effort and practice and above all else patience. I have to constantly work at it, there are still goals I am working towards and I have huge aspirations for myself that fuel my drive forward.
That said I am no stranger to the struggles that life can throw up or the challenges of a modern day lifestyle. In 2011 I left a stable well paid affluent job in sales to pursue my passion of helping people and set up a sports and remedial therapy business. I studied whilst I was on maternity leave and qualified before my sons first birthday. Knowing this was my calling and part of my bigger journey drove me forward, this same drive and tenacity was what anchored me to build the business whilst managing the bumpy road as a single parent.
Throughout these early years in business and parenthood I worked hard on my own personal development, I got help! I felt no shame in admitting I needed a guide or a coach and at times counselling, it helped shaped the person I am and gave me the tools and strategies and most importantly the mindset I needed to achieve what I wanted whilst being the best mum I could possibly be.
Working within personal development has also been on the cards for me ever since my initial foray into psychology and later into Neuroscience.
My personal work in the CAM industry bolstered this drive to want to help others achieve their goals, without compromise and enjoy the road to change as much as the goal itself.
I am launching Yellow Lemon Coaching with a high level qualification in Life Coaching, Neurolinguistic Programming and Clinical Hypnotherapy from the Life Practice UK, the Best International Training Provider at the Business Enterprise Awards in both 2018 and 2019. I have also been fortunate enough to have been nominated for Student of the Year for achieving some of the highest grades on my submitted work within the academy.
So with the more formal background and life stuff out the way I want to give you a few snippets into who I am day to day!
I love macaroni cheese (more on this in the next blog) and I really really hate aniseed and fennel but secretly wish I loved it. I would choose to go camping in the big wide countryside over a beach holiday and I would choose gardening over raving. I make my own ice cream and grow my own veges and I reckon I would have made an awesome land girl!
I look forward to meeting and inspiring you along your own journey. My hope is that I give value in what I create and share and give you a ‘go to’ when you need a nudge in the right direction on your personal road map!
