Discover Your Unique Path to Serenity

The drive: What challenges have you overcome?

Being a single mummy is wonderfully empowering. But it can be challenging juggling other career passions and hobbies too. I have a deep, intuitive drive for helping women. It is so rewarding! My inner desire and need to create a sanctuary space in my therapy room, and to empower and educate women to support their wellbeing are my motivation and drive for success. I have had challenges through Covid, when face-to-face therapies had ceased and were restricted. But this also shaped the direction of my business to be more accessible online and gave me the opportunity to create online courses.

I have had my own health challenges, and of course the difficulties of being a working, single mummy with a business can be really challenging. My enthusiasm and ideas can be a challenge, because sometimes things don’t work out. And sometimes I don’t have the time or energy to bring all of my ideas to life. As an empath, I can get overwhelmed with emotion at times. I have a positive mindset, I appreciate self-care and I have a wonderful network of women locally and globally to support me. This combination really helps me with any challenges.

For better or worse: What are the pros and cons of running your own business?

I love the freedom, creativity and passion I have as an entrepreneur. But sometimes perfectionism and visibility fears can be difficult. I have whirlwinds of ideas, but I need time and space to develop them. As I am working alongside my business, I don’t have the same financial pressure as I would have if I was solely an entrepreneur, but working patterns and commitments can take priority over my business. That is OK though, because I can be adaptable. I have so much empathy and compassion and I want to help women. But I need to be careful with boundaries and doing things for free or less than my worth.

Hopes and dreams: What next?

I’ve been developing, leading and collaborating with other holistic businesswomen to host local wellbeing events. There will be more of these in 2023! 

I’m very excited to be launching my Birthing Goddess holistic birth empowerment course in Spring 2023. This will be an online course, which is based on my bespoke holistic birth 1:1 and group coaching. I have been writing and recording videos about aromatherapy for birth, mindful movement, hypnotherapy for birth, holistic pain relief, birth choices and creating a sanctuary for birth. There will also be video teachings about optimising mental health, the magic of oxytocin, the 4 dimensions of support, learning styles and coping techniques and how to make smart wishes! I am also writing an exploratory coaching workbook to accompany the training and there will be inspirational bitesize teachings and positive affirmations to read and download too.

In 2023, I am considering leading retreats, which will be a combination of my successful short workshops, and experiences doing fayres and festivals, in collaboration with other inspirational local businesswomen.

I would love to write a book and have aspirations for this in the future! But I don’t have the space or time to do this at the moment.
