I have had the privilege of supporting women, men and couples on their various pathways to parenthood for over 10 years. In that time, I have been incredibly honoured to support hundreds of people from all walks of life, who have been faced with a whole host of different fertility challenges.
This work has been hugely rewarding, and I have lost count of how many times I have been inspired and humbled by my courageous clients. I have also seen first-hand, that there is extreme need for the emotional support, coaching and mind-body work that I offer.
Whilst each person’s journey is unique, I have seen for myself, how struggling to conceive can be one of the greatest challenges anyone has to face. The emotional turmoil it creates has a rawness to it, rarely seen elsewhere in life. What makes it so much harder, is that this suffering often goes un-talked about and unacknowledged.
So, it isn’t surprising that when someone has been locked in this situation for months or even years, they can feel overwhelmed, isolated and on a rollercoaster ride of difficult emotions, over which they feel they have very little control. This explains why, whenever people open up about their fertility struggles, one of the first and most frequent things I often find them saying, is that they need help with their mindset. Intuitively they may recognised that it is possible to feel differently about what they are going through, but they are often not well supported and don’t know how to make changes. That’s where working with me can help.
I have a First Degree in Science and went on to do a Post-graduate Diploma and Masters Degree in Acupuncture. I have qualified as a Wellbeing Coach with my training accredited by both the Association for Coaching & the NHS Personalised Care Institute. I have qualified as a Freedom Fertility Formula™ Specialist, having completed specialist training focused specifically on supporting the emotional wellbeing of clients experiencing fertility challenges. I have also trained as a Mindfulness & Meditation Teacher and a have carried out research within the NHS. I have pursued a professional life that places supporting others for positive change, at its very heart.
I can trace my love of helping others, way back into childhood, and the skills I have, have been honed over many years of training, experience and self-exploration. I work from a place of deep empathy and compassion and I find a real richness in the transformational work I do with my fertility clients.
Like most people, I have my own story. I know what it feels like to struggle with fear, shame, guilt and self-doubt. The approach I use with my clients, draws on some of the learning and wisdom I have gained on my own journey of deep healing and growth, and I speak as someone who knows. This makes me well placed to help you understand and overcome these challenges for yourself.
Our minds can shape our whole world, for both good and bad. But what I have learnt, through my own experiences and through my professional training, is that we have the power to shape the emotional landscape of our lives, our thoughts and our beliefs about who we are and what we can achieve. I bring these insights to my work, and support my clients on their own journeys of transformation and growth, as they pursue their own pathways forward.
