A Life Worth Living is Worth Living Well
All our journeys start the day we are born and my journey has been filled with a number of challenges, but has also been filled with opportunity and success. I am grateful the path has shown me my true meaning and purpose, enabling me to not just survive, but to thrive and achieve my dreams.
Whilst I had faced adversity, I considered myself to have a good life although I never truly felt fulfilled or happy. Then one day my world was torn apart, my husband passed away unexpectedly and I was left broken. I had three young children and I had a choice. I chose to fight. I had therapy and faced my darkness, but I didn't want to survive, I wanted to thrive and live my best life, so I set out on a journey.
And so my transformation began...
I gave myself permission to abandon what no longer served me and I grew stronger each day. I sought meaning and purpose. I connected with my passions. I found my inner happiness and once I had realised the transformation, I wanted to help others find the power within themselves. I am not alone in the battles I have faced. I am not alone in experiencing feelings of shame, doubt, failure or fear. I am not alone in feeling stuck, drained and powerless.
Sometimes, we need to make changes, to change course, to travel a different road, to take on a new challenge, it's never too late to establish a new path.
The journey is not always obvious or easy and can be full of unknowns, but that's why I am here to help.
My journey to happya
I returned to university to study psychology and discovered my passion for positive psychology. I went on to graduate with a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology and also trained as a clinical hypnotherapist. I have continued my training in EMDR for hypnotherapists, in the field of emotional freedom technique (EFT), and counselling. A revived love of learning ensures I can help support you on your journey and provide you with the assurances you need.
