From a young age, I have been intrigued by human behaviour and the mind, which led me to complete a BA degree in Psychology. Since obtaining a Master's in Occupational Psychology, I have worked as a Learning and Development professional across different sectors and coaching in a corporate environment for a number of years. In 2020, I made the decision to complete the Diploma in Transformational Coaching with Animas Centre for Coaching.
But this isn’t alI that I bring to my coaching sessions. Having personally been on a journey of transformation and self-discovery, I come with hope, and possibility.
In 2017, I was diagnosed with Complex PTSD and engaged with multiple therapies. Sitting in group therapy, looking back I realised I was using coaching skills to understand, and reflect back to, others. I have experienced challenges with mental health during my life but this was working at a deeper level to know, learn and understand myself.
In the last ten years, I have been worked through various life experiences relating to loss, infertility and a chronic illness - to name a few. These experiences have shaped who I am today. So ultimately, I come from a place of empathy, understanding and compassion.
The mind is an incredible force, with such power to determine your thoughts and behaviours, or become the biggest obstacle when reaching for your goals. I was to unravel my own mind and reconstruct it. Through this transition, I emerged self-aware and ready to take on my purpose, empowering others.
Just two years ago, at the start of 2019, I started a search for my next job role. 44 interviews later, I was offered roles from interview 41, 42 and 43. So, you could say I know a little about the process of searching for your next job and able to support in your career changes or moves.
