Here, she tells us how she did it.
Tell us briefly about your business
I am a life coach and a Master Coach Trainer. I work privately, one-to-one, with clients all around the world, coaching them to help them elevate mentally and emotionally to their highest potential. I am also a hypnotherapist and help people with a wide range of issues from eating or body image issues, anxiety, confidence, phobias, insomnia, public speaking or general coaching.
I also have a school online where I run two courses - one to train people to become a certified life coach themselves and the other is a foundation course to help people who just want to feel better, do so within their own time frame.
What inspired you to start it?
My own life. I slipped into drugs and alcohol at a very young age. I was anorexic, bulimic, depressed and suffered terrible anxiety and crippling low self esteem. I simply couldn’t handle life. In my mid-twenties, I hit rock bottom and decided something had to change. No matter what it took I was going to transform my life.
I tried different forms of therapy but felt no one ‘got it' or really understood me. So I decided to start studying and find a way to help myself. From the day I made that change, I haven’t looked back. Over the last 15 years I’ve studied all over the world and have come across people desperate for advice and guidance - just as I had been years before. They turned to me asking for help. Having been there myself, I found it easy to appreciate the battles they were fighting.
