Hi, I'm Kirsty. As I was approaching 40, I found myself burnt out, unable to function on a physical and emotional level. Life got difficult and I had to take time out of a successful corporate career whilst I struggled with exhaustion, anxiety, grief and loss of confidence. The scary thing? I had no idea how I got to that point. I'd been living on auto pilot. And I thought I was OK. How does this happen? It's hardly surprising to me now, as I’ve since learned a staggering 95% of our brain's activities are carried out unconsciously. This means that less than 5% of our decisions, emotions, actions and behaviour are made consciously.
I was determined to get better so I educated myself about burn out, anxiety and stress. I studied neuroscience, mindfulness and habits. With a new found zest for learning I enrolled on an NLP taster session and realised this was it! I'd found my path. So I re-trained as a Life Coach and Master NLP Practitioner.
With my new found confidence and passion for change I threw myself back into the corporate role, taking every opportunity to coach others. I still felt something was missing. A few years later I was presented with the 'opportunity' to take redundancy. I knew I no longer felt fulfilled but the prospect of leaving was still a scary one. Losing my mum to a sudden illness forced me to have one of those 'life's too short'moments so I left and trained with Marisa Peer, a renowned therapist and creator of the award winning Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT).
Having RTT myself gave me the confidence to finally step outside my comfort zone and pursue my dreams, and I'm now the proud owner of my own transformational coaching business. Every day I get to help people change their lives and embrace who they truly are.
My journey (even the tough times) transformed the way I see and experience the world. My life, my attitude, my relationships and my career have changed for the better.
Your own transformation journey doesn't have to be hard or take years, rapid permanent change is possible
I bring all my experiences, skills and learning together to help you make the changes you want in your life so you can live up to your true potential and make a success of your life. I've been through that transition from corporate career woman to small business owner and understand exactly how that feels and the challenges you're facing. Being able to confidently put yourself out there and be the face and voice of your business is tough when you're carrying around baggage from the past. Limiting beliefs and fears are keeping you small and stuck, but inside you know you are capable of so much more if you could just feel more confident and believe in yourself. These limiting beliefs and fears literally stop you taking the actions you know you need to take to take your business to the next level.
Taking the leap to live your dream and create your own business will trigger you on a deep level. I experienced self-doubt and lack of confidence. My perfectionist tendencies went into overdrive so I faffed and procrastinated. Coupled with the practical side of learning how to run a business I was plagued with uncertainty. I felt like an imposter.
Underpinning it all was a fear of being seen, a fear of making a mistake, and a feeling of not being good enough. As I became aware of these patterns I knew I had to address them before they crippled my ability to make a success of my business, so I took my own advice and worked with coaches and RTT Therapists. The shift I've experienced has been life changing, and I'm able to take the action I need to grow my business and to help other business women do that too.
These changes won't happen by pushing through. You may be able to force yourself to look confident and show up on social media and at networking events but that feeling of fear in the pit of your stomach and the nagging voice in your head telling you you're terrified and everyone is going to see you're a fraud will wreck your self-esteem.
