Do you struggle to maintain positive thoughts? Struggle with your Mental Health?
At 44, I had felt homesick in life for over half my years. Continually searching for the answers as to why I felt, behaved and experienced life the way I did. I had no idea that what I had been carrying around was trauma, for like many I had swept it under the carpet with the stiff upper lip to get on with life.
It had cost me careers which I loved, friends that meant everything to me, loved ones, motherhood and most of all my happiness in life. Until now....
As a certified Mental Health Coach, I understand the weight and frustration of feeling like there is more out there for you, but not knowing where to turn to first. That’s why my mission is simple: give my clients the wellness education, tools and resources that they need to feel happy, healthy, and capable of managing life’s pressures. Get in touch to get started!
I was in the darkest of places, where it felt like the whole world would not accept me for who I was. I knew what lonely, scared and pain felt like. I was financially destitute, with over 30k debt from a partner who had mentally and physically abused me for over three years . During this time I had been forced to do things outside of my values, paid the price and kept it a secret from all those around me. I had lost friends through being isolated and frequently felt my life was not worth living.
I hated myself for what I had allowed myself to go through, hated the weakness of an intelligent person. I trusted no one. Years of depression and anxiety followed, masked with medication and continually knocking on the doctors door for help, trying to settle into a ‘normal life’ with marriage and children, believing it would piece me all back together again. I had never addressed the traumatic life experiences I had been exposed to, with no support network I wasn’t even sure if they were considered abnormal.
Abuse, Postnatal depression, financial struggles and divorce had unconsciously written my language and forged my limiting beliefs, that I took forward with me everyday. I battled with my self esteem and worth, retreated from life and continued to build walls around me, thinking that they would protect me. They only served to keep me inside my rigid thinking and limiting beliefs.
My ‘a ha’ awakening moment came when I knew that life had to change for me. I had to regain my conscious flexible life choices, to grow and move forward in life. I began to understand the way that we work and that I had control over what makes me and what breaks me.
Too much of the concentration of Mental Health lies in the focus of training to recognise the symptoms, yet little to work on the support systems and systemic reasons we find ourselves with low emotional wealth and wellbeing.
Emotional Wealth is not the quick fix plaster that we see so many trying to cover the wound of mental ill health with, but a transformation of health from the core. A proactive collection of skills to move forward with and lead your life not just living it.
It’s not reacting to and acknowledging Mental Health but understanding ourselves and our minds using proven facts to enable us to do what we love, be who we are and live with what brings us joy. Mental ill health is not going to go away, and is a situation that with the way that we live in society today, the world challenges that we face and are exposed to and the decline in support available due to the stretched system will only manifest itself more.
So, using my experience, knowledge and learning I wanted to change the position and present a unique approach to emotional wealth with an Empowering, Relatable, Supporting, Knowledgeable and Inspiring Community. To help others the way I helped myself, to share my story with others, my knowledge, my passion for educating the pro activity of Emotional Wealth over being reactive to Mental Ill Health x
