I'm a multi-award winning fully accredited coach, mentor and speaker and I want to take you on a journey of self-discovery that will empower you to live your happiest and most full-filled life.
Over 20 years experience of working in the corporate sector. A lot of things were unraveling for me. I was changing. I had the life I'd always wanted, my lovely husband, our home, a strong career and two beautiful children.
However, I spent a lot of my days feeling like I’d forgotten something. An underlying anxiety about something that I couldn’t put my finger on. This grew for me and I was experiencing stress and panic attacks. Something in me was breaking and it needed to. You see, the thing I’d forgotten was myself, I was a classic people pleaser, I blocked my emotions, and lived on the mantra of 'just keep going'. The truth is, I was at the bottom of a very long to do list and was struggling to catch my breath in the tidal wave of life.
I committed to making myself a priority. I worked with different coaches, prioritised self-care and went on a quest to get back to me. The more I reconnected with myself the stronger I became. I was honouring my feelings, experiencing joy amongst the chaos, and learning to let go of things that no longer served me. I was finding a confidence and self-belief that I never knew I had and it was impacting all areas of my life.
I wanted everyone to experience this feeling, so I walked away from the comfort blanket of full-time employment, trained to be a coach and founded Virago Wellness.
In the first 6 months of Virago 125 women used my services. It turned out it wasn't just a 'me' problem, more women were feeling disconnected to their true self - I was far from alone! I now work with women to feel more empowered at home & in the workplace.
