Believe it or not, I never intended to start my own Life Coaching business.
When I attended the Life Coaching, NLP and Hypnosis course and training, my goal was simply to learn more about myself and to get a glimpse of the so-called "Wizard" behind the curtain of human behaviour.
My own experience with this process was so transformational, so wonderful, that I just had to know the secrets.
How could something that, on the surface, appears so simple result in such amazing changes?
How did 3 months of life coaching result in more personal growth than over 13 years of traditional psychotherapy?
I needed to know the Matrix code behind the system.
And so I took the course, fully believing that I was there just to learn and then I would return to my regularly scheduled program.
As always, it seems my unconscious mind knew me better :)
Though I received my BA in Psychology over a decade ago, my own less-than-wonderful experiences with our mental health system left me feeling hopeless and wholly uninterested in pursuing a career in counselling.
There are cracks in our system that a Mack truck could fall through. Did I really want to be a part of it?
Nope. Not even a little.
And yet here I am.
I've always had a desire to help others; to inspire them to live a more authentic existence. And on my way to realizing my dream I found myself taking some amazing detours that I am still a part of to this very day.
I have worn many hats in my journey including:
Bingo hall associate
Veterinary manager and assistant
Bookkeeper & HR rep
Hula Hoop Dancer (yup - you read that right!)
And now, Life Coach.
Every step of my journey has led me to where I am today and I couldn't be more grateful for the fabulous people and lessons I have learned along the way.
Life often takes us to places we never dreamed we could ever be.
Sometimes, it's just a matter of having the courage to follow the winding path that makes the difference.
After years of dealing with frustration and blame from the medical community, I finally chose to take control of my own health journey; a path which has led me to where I am today.
