Who am I? What is my story? Why do I want to help you on your journey? ;)
What makes me unique is not so much my education, my knowledge in the field of wellbeing and life coaching, it is much more my story and my life experience. What makes me unique is that I sincerely care about you. I truly understand where you are coming from and what you are going through.
Why? Because I WAS YOU, just a few years ago. I was a high achiever who always puts others first. In the past, I never worried about my health - and then suddenly I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.
I was also a typical people pleaser who found it hard to say NO even though I was overwhelmed with so much going on in my life and always wanted to help people who even told me that I should do this as a profession when I had another career.
After years of a highly pressured life and building a successful career (because that's what we're conditioned to do and that's what all my friends were aiming for), the first cracks started to show.
My friends and family started noticing my mood swings. I often snapped at people when I felt I was under extreme pressure and overwhelmed but I didn’t know how to stop being so irritable. I tried even harder to be nice, forthcoming, and work harder, hoping to show how valuable I am and running my own business in the Middle East.
My life was a living hell.
Soon I found myself worrying about my lifestyle and then worrying about things in my life in general which caused me huge anxiety, But, instead of seeking help, I chose to ignore the facts and signs my body was showing, which only caused additional stress to my body and soon I started developing other several stress-related illnesses that made my life a living hell.
At that time, my body was weak. I couldn’t sleep at night, I had no energy, and I couldn’t remember what life was like without brain fog, chronic leg pain, and headache.
It was no wonder my career and relationships never went the way I wanted. I was lacking in knowledge about mental health, I was irritable and emotional and the more hours I worked the more stressed I became. But, what was I supposed to do? I was too ashamed to talk to colleagues or even friends about my feelings, my overwhelm, and fear of being judged. And I wasn’t ready to give up the career and lifestyle I worked so hard for either. I didn’t want to be perceived as weak.
I had to find another way out of misery, so I could get my life back, be happy, healthy, wealthy,, and be myself again. I did not want medication that would only mask the problems. I didn’t want to waste MORE time and money on expensive programmes or researching treatments that never seemed to seem to work.
I almost gave up (but I didn’t).
I had enough of NOT prioritising self-care and NOT investing in myself the way I should have been all along. It was inevitable that I burned out and ended up in hospital. While I recovered, I came across a NLP life coaching course that got me intrigued about everything mind related and that’s when my journey of self-discovery really started.
I’d had enough of just reading books and listening to motivational podcasts and meditation. At that time, I did this to help myself recover from burnout and to overcome all my health and career challenges. I attended a course where I healed through mindful exercises and timeline therapy that I am practicing now the most with my clients.
I had to heal my suppressed emotions (that I didn’t know I had until my NLP sessions) and find a new path and lifestyle. New life! Who am I without all these suppressed emotions, traumas, expectations, and showing up strong when I don’t FEEL like it?
So this is how I developed a passion for everything related to well-being which led me to the path of becoming a life coach and therapist.
I realised that traumas from our childhood can affect our adult life more than we can even imagine and hey, it’s been a journey for a while, but it was so worth it!
After my transformation, I got certified as a NLP & Life Coach and timeline therapy and I also became a certified Access Bars practitioner and Family Constellation Facilitator.
Now I know how to help others with shortcuts, so they don't need to go through the same long journey as I did and I know how to prioritize myself first and I want you to do the same ! ;)
Adopting a holistic approach is a KEY to full recovery.
I realised that if I wanted to fix my relationships, health, and career, OTHER related factors must be considered.
The only way to success is to put MIND, BODY and SPIRIT at the centre of everything I do for myself and the people I help.
It’s so frustrating to try many things that don’t work, waste so much time, and you still do not feel good.
If you don’t crush those problems, they’ll crush you. Believe me, I know that because I was YOU a few years ago.
I am here to listen to your story. Are ready to share it with me?
