I consider myself incredibly fortunate to do a job that I wholeheartedly enjoy and to have met so many incredible people along the way, who have been and continue to be my inspiration. I am also grateful to have found coaching as it became my second career. Having been through a long and at times stressful transition both professionally and personally, that experience has given me the empathy and ability to appreciate and relate to many of my clients’ challenges.
There is another reason I decided to become a life coach which is to be a better mum to my two boys, who are now 8 and 11. I wanted to become a more patient and engaging parent. I wanted to develop active listening skills focusing on their wants and needs, rather than always telling them what they should be doing from the position of parental superiority. I wanted them to feel heard, unconditionally supported and encouraged in their independent thinking, which is precisely how I work with clients.
