I was a fairly quiet child, the youngest of four brothers. I often would live in their shadow growing up, not really finding my voice or place until I changed schools at the age of 9 where for two years I found my place and the joy of being me without being compared to my brothers. I really was awesome.
However, I seemed to lose my way again as I returned to the shadows when I went to the same senior school as them - being in the shadows seemed to be my place. Well that's how it seemed at the time. As I went through my teenage years, this is were I stayed most of the time. I did rebel, like most teenagers, but I seemed to find it easier not the be seen or really heard.
Then the unthinkable happened. My eldest brother was killed in a house fire when I was 19, which created a huge gap in my life and that of my family. This would shape my world for years to come even though I thought it didn't.
Even with the trauma of that event, I still went on to be successful, always looking for ways to lead others, and help people grow. But, I knew there was something missing and I knew I was playing in my comfort zone for fear of getting hurt or being seen. It was always there, hazy in the background and I struggled to really appreciate my successes because of it and to live my life to its potential.
What is amazing is that my own coaching journey has reconnected me to that awesome young spirit. I want to be seen and heard for who I really am.
My clients work with me because I am willing to share my gift and abilities to help them see their world differently.
I have an innate ability to share my power with my clients to help them reconnect to theirs.
My mission is to help you find yours and go and live it!
