Coaching for start-ups who want to work on their mindset to achieve their full potential in business 

I buried my mum and dad in April and November 2013. At the time, I also had relationship and flatmate issues, and was signed off work with stress. In January 2014, after 19 years as a corporate PA, I decided to leave my job 

Something had to change… I wanted to leave a legacy for my parents, so I retrained as a personal performance coach and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro – raising £5,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society and MacMillan Cancer Support.  

studied to become an NLP, EFT and MR practitioner; then became a reiki master – helping both patients and carers at my local cancer centre.  

I was making good progress; then I suffered a series of setbacks in 2017 beginning with a major mountain bike accident. I broke my kneecaptore my ligaments and damaged my peroneal nerve, which has left me with drop foot 

Having lost £26,000 in a cryptocurrency scam, I then received a £9,000 tax billWith just £50 in my bank, I turned my first paid coaching client down. I was too much of an emotional wreck to deliver 

Thankfully, my tax was eventually sortedbut going into 2018I was working six jobs – everything from pet sitting to network marketing – to make ends meet, as well as trying to promote my reiki and coaching 

I was at breaking point and on Universal Credit when I reached out to online business coach Helen Pritchard. I had loads of fears about money, but I took a leap of faith and signed up for her LinkedIn Mastermind in April 2019Within two months, I’d secured an ideal coaching client who paid me £3,000 in full. Since then, I’ve had a six-times return on my investment and I’m an ambassador for the free five-day challenge 

My mindset helped me to stay focused and get through the worst time in my lifewon an award and reached the finals of ‘Life Coach of the Year’Im also a guest speaker and blogger, with plans for an eBook, podcast and membership site in development.  

I’m still paying my bills and I use my journey to inspire others to believe that anything is possiblebecause it is.
