HOLISTIC LIFE COACH MINDSET MENTOR
And then, on the 12th October 2018, I became a mother. I remember that day she was born, placed on my chest and in that moment feeling the most overwhelming rush of emotions. Unconditional love, a ferocious desire to protect her, nurture her - but at the same time, feeling so exposed, vulnerable, full of fear and anxiety.
Of course I knew that day was going to change my life - I was a going to be a mum, and have a little tiny human to take care of - but I’m not sure I truly understood the ways in which stepping into motherhood was going to spark the deep level of internal transformation which it did.
5 months after my daughter was born, my husband's job moved overseas. As a new mum, removed from her family and support network, I felt lost and unsure of the path ahead, although I now realise it was the universe assuredly guiding me down the path I needed to take. I was suddenly confronted with enough space and time to reconnect with my truest self, and work out what I really wanted out of life, and how best I could show up for my child, my husband and for myself.
As my daughter grew, and her personality began to evolve, it was like looking into a mirror. I became overwhelmed with this desire to do absolutely everything in my power, as a woman, and as a mother to be the best role model for her. I knew, that if I wanted to raise a healthy, empowered conscious human being, I had to be that myself. I had to raise myself first so I could be a living example to her of what it looks like to be an empowered woman.
So I started doing the work.. I turned inwards and reconnected with myself.. I jumped into my own self-healing and learned how to recognise and shift my limiting beliefs. I made brave choices, I put myself first. I left my job, I signed up for my first qualification. I began the process of rediscovering my identity, and my purpose, so that I could embody the woman and mother I wanted to be.
Where the Journey Began
FOUR YEARS AGO, I WAS AT THE PEAK OF MY CAREER, WITH A HIGH PAYING SALARY JOB WORKING FOR ONE OF THE BEST TECH COMPANIES IN THE WORLD.
ON PAPER, IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECT. BUT INSTEAD I FELT LOST, UNFULFILLED, AND TOTALLY LACKING IN CONFIDENCE.
IT IS ONLY IN COMING HOME TO OURSELVES AND LIVING TRULY IN ALIGNMENT WITH OUR VALUES THAT WE CAN LIVE MORE MINDFULLY, FIND PEACE AND CLARITY IN THE EVERY DAY, BE BETTER PARTNERS, FRIENDS, DAUGHTERS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE BEST ROLE MODEL TO YOUR CHILDREN
I’ve since gone onto becoming a qualified Functional Medicine health coach, Life Purpose coach and Spiritual Life coach. I’ve reconnected with who I am at my core, outside of motherhood, and I’ve made it my mission to provide mothers with the tools, guidance and support they need to start their own journey of self-growth, self-healing and self-empowerment. It is my aim to help mothers reconnect with who they are - outside the role of being a mother, and the other external roles they play - and help them understand and bring forth their passions, desires and natural born talents so that they can live a life of purpose, happiness and fulfillment, and be the best role model for their children.
