My journey has been one of many trades, from Project Management to Dressmaking, Teaching and Art. While I could get passionate about most of these worlds, I was missing purpose.
I was lost, like a shapeshifter erring in the fog, battling my inner voices that were holding me back. I finally discovered Coaching in 2011. I loved it and I knew this was what I was meant to do!
But this was only the beginning of my journey. Many challenges would come my way and the further I walked the foggier it got. My mind was exploding with ideas and options while the rest of my body was standing still, frozen in its tracks.
So I started what I have come to call "slow mapping". It was a process forcing me to slow down and help me put my thoughts on paper in a particularly creative way. This opened the gates to a magical land I had not expected to find. I had gained access to my subconscious mind and all the voices that were having a party at my expense.
Answers started presenting themselves through the tip of my fingers, as maps were literally being drawn in front of my eyes. Everything started to become clear.
Now I adore sharing this process combined with coaching techniques to help those who feel lost, overwhelmed and in search of connection to map their way to the deepest corners of their mind, discover wonders and create their path to a meaningful life.
