Let me guide you in creating the life of your dreams!
I am just a girl with a really big dream...
I arrived in the UK at the age of 15 with just a backpack full of clothes and a head full of dreams of a better life. I wasn’t fluent in the English language, I had little money other than an education scholarship and no connections in the UK. My future was anything but certain.
I believe that within uncertainty lies opportunity if you look for it and are willing to pursue it.
During college, I developed a passion for art and fashion and studied for a bachelor’s degree in graphic design followed by a masters in film-making. It was during this time that I discovered a love for helping people to develop their potential. So, I studied for a further master’s degree in education, completed teacher training and became a special educational needs teacher.
I believe you shouldn't have to compromise your lifestyle to accommodate your career.
I spent over a decade dedicated to the profession of teaching and working my way up to management level. I taught all age groups and ability levels right up to master’s level. I couldn’t have been happier about the difference I was making in the lives of others, but it came at a cost. I wasn’t satisfied with my own life outside of work; teaching was becoming a lifestyle as much as a career and that simply wasn’t good enough for me.
If I've learned one thing, it's that the decisions you shy away from will eventually make you. There's no free pass to the life you want.
It wasn’t easy (or comfortable) to leave a secure, well-paid job to secure my dreams of a better lifestyle, but I knew that I could use the experience I had gained in teaching as a foundation for continuing to help people to develop their lives. So, I invested money that, at the time, I could scarcely afford into studying for a personal performance diploma in coaching and I became a certified coach.
Changing your life doesn't happen overnight, but with planning, investment and effort it can happen sooner than you think.
When I started my coaching business, the consensus of those who knew about my life transformation was that it would take several years for coaching to become economically viable. It took me one year. Now, I have a career I love; one that fills me with enthusiasm and leaves me feeling energised at the end of each working day. The transformation I made in my life gave me the energy to invest in myself and my lifestyle. I re-discovered my friends and hobbies, re-joined the dating scene, found the man of my dreams, bought a house in London and got married. Moreover, coaching helped me develop the determination and resilience I needed to undergo my IVF journey and achieve my lifelong dream of becoming a mother.
I firmly believe that if you don't have the life you want, you owe it to yourself to do something about it...but you don't have to do it alone.
Today, I coach professionals all over the world, helping them to become the architect of their best futures and live the life they want on their own terms.
So now it's your turn. Tell me, what do you want your future to look like?
