Growing up in a broken family had a hugely negative impact on me. I suffered from low self worth, low self esteem and aloneness. I experienced deeply rooted pain - the pain of emotional abandonment, the pain of rejection and the pain of unworthiness.
My inquisitive mind wanted to understand the cause of my suffering and I continued to ask questions because answers gave me reassurance.
My need to ask ‘why” and my desire towards helping people pulled me towards psychology. I made it my focus to complete my bachelors degree in psychology and Master's degree in business psychology.
I went down the expected route and got a “good job” working as a consultant. When I worked as a consultant I felt enormous pressure to be everything but myself. I reminded myself frequently that I was grateful for having a job but I denied the fact that I was deeply unhappy and unfulfilled.
I felt ashamed of wanting to be, do and have more with the risk of disappointment, failure, being judged and not liked by others.
A few years ago, I experienced one of the most difficult years of my life. I struggled finding a graduate job, experienced narcissistic abuse, felt isolated and alienated in London and learnt that my dad had a neurodegenerative disorder.
I reached a pain threshold in my life and I decided that I’d had enough of suffering. I went on a journey of spiritual healing, personal growth and changed my life from the inside out.
I transcended the beliefs and behaviours that were not serving me and immersed myself in self development.
Within less than a year, I skyrocketed my self belief, rediscovered myself, launched my coaching business, escaped the rat race in London and moved to Bath.
Hitting rock bottom gave me an opportunity to foster the strength, resilience and persistence that has got my business to where it is today. The depth of my life experiences has allowed me to grow and has helped me to serve my clients on a much deeper level.
