The best part of my job is…

The feeling I get at the end of a session when I see the happiness on the faces of my clients. I love witnessing them experience ‘aha’ moments and new realisations throughout the session. They always feel so inspired and positive by the time we’re finished. I especially love this after Mind Detox sessions; they are INCREDIBLY powerful, and basically every single client I’ve had has told me at the end, they feel so much lighter, more peaceful and free. You can feel the shift in their energy, and they look so much brighter and calmer – it’s just amazing!

I chose to enter this field of work because…

It completely changed my relationship with myself, which in turn changed my whole life. I used to hate myself SO much and was just miserable, and it’s sad knowing that so many other people (women especially) feel this way about themselves too. I wanted to share my experiences and lessons with others to inspire them to make positive shifts in their lives as well.

I think that so many of us go about our lives unconsciously on autopilot. We’re caught up in constant busyness, just grinding away everyday, working hard, pushing ourselves to be more productive, but we never really take time to rest or think about what we actually want. It’s my intention to help people open their eyes and minds, to live more consciously, to shift their perspectives, and to reconnect with their natural selves so they can live a life that lights them up.

The greatest challenge in my career has been…

Keeping myself focused and motivated. Working for myself is absolutely amazing, and I wouldn’t change it. I have so much freedom and I get to choose when and how I do things, but with this comes the need for boundaries, which I’m not so good at setting. I tend to struggle staying on task and get ‘shiny object syndrome’! When something gets too hard, I’ll become distracted and excited by another thing that seems more fun, which means I end up taking ages to finish anything.

The funniest misconceptions about my industry/company/brand are….

That life coaches have it all together! It’s funny because I fell into this trap too. I struggled for a long time telling others that I was a ‘life coach’ because I was worried that people would think I was better than them, or that I thought I knew everything about life, which I don’t! I’m learning so much more about myself everyday, and I’m definitely not perfect, but I love that I can share things I’ve discovered along the way with other people, to inspire them to open their minds and shift their perspectives too.

The most influential person in my career has been…

Oooh this is a tough one because there have been so many incredible people who have inspired me along the way! If I had to choose one person, I would say Cassie Mendoza-Jones as I recently experienced a series with her and it was incredible. Simply by watching her being herself and running her sessions in her own authentic way, she showed me that I could do the same! I was caught up in feeling like I needed to structure my business and client sessions the same way as other coaches do, but I was able to see that it is possible to infuse my own interests and unique talents into my business in a way that feels aligned with me. I realised that I’m the one creating my business, so I can do things my own way. Now I intentionally focus on doing things that light me up, and I am LOVING it!

If I could give one piece of advice to my 18-year-old self, it would be….

You are beautiful. You are good enough. You are loved. Stop trying to please everyone else, just do what makes you happy.

My greatest achievement has been…

Oh gosh, there are so many! Launching my business, designing my entire website on my own, writing my ebook, creating my Beautiful Beings interview series and reaching out to so many incredible women to be involved, hosting two events and speaking in front of over 150 people, and just being able to hold myself together through the difficult times and come out the other side with a fresh perspective. For this I’m so proud.

I guess my greatest achievement would be that I’ve supported and inspired so many of my beautiful and amazing clients to make positive changes in their lives. It brings me so much joy and honestly fills me up! I think that one of the reasons this makes me the happiest is because it’s also a reflection of how far I’ve come in my life, and how much I’ve changed my relationship with myself for the better. Witnessing the growth of my clients is an incredible reminder of how much I’ve grown and evolved too.

The greatest personal challenge I have over come is…

Putting myself out there for the whole world to see. I’ve always been a people pleaser and cared way too much about what everyone else thought of me. So many times I would hold back on what I really wanted to say or do because I didn’t want people to think I was weird or disagree with me. I like to be liked, so I’d get scared about expressing my true self and voicing my opinion, especially online as it’s there for all to see! BUT, you know what? When I do, I receive so much love and support, and attract incredible, like-minded people into my life. Even when the fear is there, it’s absolutely worth it! I finally feel like I’m letting go of caring about what anyone else thinks, and I’m living my life for ME.

I don’t understand why…

it’s seen as ‘ok’ and ‘normal’ to be so mean to ourselves.

I try to relax by…

taking time out to do nothing but soak up and watch the world around me.

My biggest fear is…

that we’re going to destroy the natural beauty of our earth and turn it into a wasteland.

I can’t live without…

warmth, sunshine, water and plants (being surrounded by beautiful yellows, blues and greens!). And other people. I crave connection.

I really wish I had…

my own piece of land to grow everything and a beautiful space that I’m free to design and create as I wish.

The greatest lesson I have learnt is….

to stop pushing, striving to achieve, and pleasing others over myself.

If I had one super power, it would be….

to be able to change the way people think.

If I could invite four people to a dinner party, they’d be…

Louise Hay, Bruce Lipton, Rachel Holm from Hanako Therapies and Jenna Ward.
