There seems to be so many twists and turns in life that take us by surprise. Life can be so daunting!
My life has taken me on an unexpected journey. I once found myself on a river in the rainforest in South America and suddenly something within me seemed to snap. From that moment, I started on a journey of self-discovery and personal development, that has led me to where I am today and moreover has enabled me to help others who have had a similar experience.
When I was in my teens and twenties I suffered with severe anxiety and struggled to cope. The ‘snap’ was a defining moment for me, a moment where I stopped and made a decision to look for help.
Having chartered these rather interesting and at times choppy waters I now believe that we can all find another way through life that doesn’t involve paddling frantically and getting scared. Rather it guides and supports us to a place where calmer waters lie and we can achieve a higher level of stillness and inner peace.
Alongside holding senior management positions whilst working in Ireland and Northern Ireland, during troubled times, I have also taken a personal development journey. This has led me to learn and practice a range of tools and techniques to help others. More recently I have returned to the UK and I now run my own business helping women work through their own unique issues.
In these blogs, I explore elements that can make a real difference to our quality of life. Sometimes I come up with more questions than answers, but this is the real world and it does at times get a bit gritty!
I hope you enjoy reading my blogs. I’ve also written a book, you can download a couple of chapters here. Feel free to follow me on LinkedIn and Facebook and have a look at my website for details of events I am running and to contact me if you would like more information.
