Why "Confidence Coach"?
Having gone through and overcome low self confidence, serious life changing health issues, life challenges and much adversity myself, my genuine desire is to help others help themselves. It is a big motivator for me and I am passionate about helping people to feel empowered and better about themselves.
When I say I am passionate about empowering others, I really am, as I know how it feels to have low confidence levels, anxiety and, and to have low self esteem. Also at times in my life how it feels to be struggling to exist, wondering if you will ever feel worthy, loved and confident at anything at all. So I bring a lot of life experience with me.
I believe confidence underpins everything we do and are, in our personal and work lives, that positive thinking and the power of our minds can help us cope with challenges and live our life in the way we choose. I believe everyone, without exception, has the power within them to be the best version of themselves and has the right to feel loved, fulfilled, valued, happy and healthy.
Over many years I have worked with people from all walks of life, empowering them to move forward by developing skills, confidence and motivation. People come to me suffering with anxiety, low self esteem and low self worth. They struggle with internal conflicts, doubting themselves, avoiding opportunities, under-performing and settling for less than they are worth. Deep down however, they know something has to change, they want to live a more confident life.
I can help to empower you, show you how to start to turn your life around.
To Feel good about yourself. Feel happy and be in control of You.
How we work together
Every person I work with is amazing and I believe that You are the expert on You!
I work with compassion, understanding, without judgement, with integrity, sensitivity and fun.
We work together in a 'client centered' 'solution focused' whic is about seeing you as unique, with your own challenges, issues, behaviours and thoughts. We work at your pace, I treat you as an individual, and tailor my approach to find solutions that suit you and that you can work with.
It doesn't matter how long you have been struggling, it is never too late to make a positive change in your life. My clients tell me I inspire and empower them so they are able to let go of long held beliefs and deep rooted issues in just a few sessions and that the change impacts positively on all areas of their lives.
With my diversity of experience, background and qualifications in nursing, education, training, NLP and hypnotherapy you will experience a depth of understanding and empathy that gives you a completely unique experience on the journey towards being back in control of your life.
