For so many years my entire identity was wrapped into being an academic success and an 'achiever'..

I spent the best part of 10 years working as a Vice President in front office sales roles in Equities at J.P. Morgan and Citigroup – I know, first hand, the joys and the strains of working long hours, under pressure, for some of the most prestigious firms in the world.

The moments of joy coming with closing a big piece of business but equally the strains of spending 12+ hours a day in front of a screen, going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark, the 5am alarms & the late night client dinners. The sense of there always being more to do & never, ever, seeming to get enough sleep.
Despite being a top performer at work, I always had a sense that something wasn’t quite right with my work & that I was destined for something else. It wasn’t until the huge amount of pressure I put on myself to succeed manifested as physical illness & I broke down in tears on the tube one day in 2015 that I decided I needed to start really taking a look at what was really going on for me

It turned out, the identity I'd created of 'achiever' and 'a success' was exactly what was holding me back from creating my own form of success..

How could it possibly be that despite having spent my entire life ‘succeeding’, I felt like such a failure and so utterly lost? You can read more about my story here. From that point on, as my career continued to blossom during the daytime, in the evenings & on weekends I dedicated myself to self-improvement – starting, as it does for many people, with psychotherapy and then taking a more somatic approach – including yoga, breathwork & energy healing practices.
Before I lose you, if I’m completely honest, I was seriously sceptical of any kind of alternative healing practice – I come from a relatively traditional family & had enough resistance as it was going to therapy, let alone looking at my energy body, but all I can say is that it was the blend of these practices alongside coaching which helped me completely transform my experience of life & gave me the courage to finally take the leap into the unknown by leaving my work.

Everything, and I mean everything, starts with a simple thought..

Little did I know, it was my experience in banking which finally led me to what it was I was meant to be doing all along, which is helping people to transform their experience of life, as I did for myself.
