Would you like to find out more about me?
Click here on my ‘About Me’ page, it will take you through my experiences and qualifications. But the most important thing you need to know is that I use my own techniques day in, day out in my own life; I really walk my own talk.
I’ve been studying personal development and healing for 25yrs. I studied the Law of Attraction when I was studying with Dr Demartini 15yrs ago, who was particularly keen on looking at it from a deeper level, rather than the usual more superficial look. But it was especially helpful for me in 2005 after the birth of my son when film ‘The Secret’ was released. I didn’t have post-natal depression, but my world felt pretty dark as I was grieving for my mum, we’d moved house and I was struggling with the identity crisis of being a new mum. This simple film was the perfect empowering pick me up that I needed, which gave me a new appreciation for the power of it’s simplicity. But it wasn’t until after my Lyme diagnosis in 2016 that I looked at it again in more detail. So here I am, wanting to share it to Mums, to help us all create the families and lives that we dream of. Because when we are happy, we can change the world!
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2012 (chronic pain, fatigue and a pile of other symptoms) and then Lyme Disease in 2016, so ironically I now need my own tips even more than before.
I’m an awarding winning blogger (ooh get me!), a best selling Amazon author (whoop whoop), award winning parenting coach (yay!) and business owner of a Hair & Beauty Salon and Spa on a Rural shopping village.
I don’t believe there is any ‘one’ way to raise a child.
I’m not a big fan of parenting techniques.
What is my Background/Qualifications?
I worked in IT at Oracle for 13 years following a BA Business Studies degree. I was a geek, but also became interested in personal development techniques, like NLP and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
I now combined the healing work, with the deeper studies I did with Demartini, into a combination of healing, coaching and shamanic techniques.
I have worked and taught people from all walks of life, and with all types of problems, pains and traumas. From betrayal, depression, financial difficulties and health problems to past abuse.
But what has helped me the most is my experiences!
My parents were unwell and elderly (and drank a bit!), so I was what is termed nowadays a ‘young carer’. My Dad died when I was 20, and my Mum died when I was 36 and pregnant with Curly Headed Boy. There’s loads of juiceness in my past.
I met David (my husband) when I was 20, so we have spent 29yrs together – that gives me plenty of opportunity to practice making a relationship work, nothing that long is ever plane sailing ;o)
At 36 I suddenly fell pregnant having been told at 19 that I’d never be able to have children – and Curly Headed Boy turned out to be the best teacher I have ever had. Having thought I would never want children, I have LOVED being a Mum. But I soon realised how lucky I was to have had the training and experiences that I had beforehand and hence ‘The Mummy Whisperer’ was born so that I could share what I knew. Then I fell pregnant at 40 again by surprise, and ‘Little Dimples’ arrived.
I wrote my book ‘6 Steps to a sparkling you‘ via blog posts during a 6 month cancer scare when my daughter was 2months old, and published it in 2011 on amazon, reaching their best sellers list within a week! I then published the second edition in 2012.
In 2013 I started a Hair & Beauty Salon and Spa called ‘Espiritu‘ in Radlett at a shopping village called ‘Battlers Green Farm’, now called ‘‘Life Of Luxe‘. I’ve learnt a lot. Grown up a lot (being a boss isn’t fun at times). Wondered why on earth I did it. But also LOVE it there! I’m now sharing my tips on ‘Business with a heart’ to help other businesses succeed, whilst not giving up their soul.
In 2017 I realised that although I was mega busy, my soul was missing my Mummy Whisperer work; hence I was inspired to create online courses and groups, where I could help a shed load of mums, whilst juggling my salon and family. Ironically this was one of my best decisions ever, as it led to me creating a much better balance in my own life; and after all if I can create a life I love, then so can you!
Thank you so much to these busy ladies for sharing:
I personally feel a lot more focused. And feeling stronger dealing with some family distress that has been going on xx
