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’ve got 2 children, Curly Headed Boy (13yrs in 2018) and Little Dimples (8yr in 2018), one big and one tiny dog and two huge fluffy Norwegian forest cats. I’ve been with the Big Hairy Northern Hubby for 29yrs, and we currently live in St Albans. That also makes me pretty old at 49!
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 think we should all agree to disagree as Mums, and be strong enough to accept our differences.
I’m not a big fan of parenting techniques.
I’m also just ‘me’; someone who loves sparkly stuff, chocolate, walking the dog, trashy TV, Zumba, and my kindle. I’m a pretty rubbish cook, and tend to be pretty grounded whilst being half tree-hugger and half geek.
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.
Then I got more interested in the ‘healing’ (tree hugging!) side of alternative therapies and trained as a Reiki Master in 2000 and Holographic Repatterning Practitioner (now Resonance Repatterning). When looking for something that would work for both the geek and the tree hugger in me I discovered Dr John Demartini in 2003, and certified as the UK’s first Demartini Method Facilitator (then certified senior).
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 here 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:
Debbie (Holistic therapist, mum of 2 grown up kids): Loved it!
I personally feel a lot more focused. And feeling stronger dealing with some family distress that has been going on xx
Tammie: Thank you for keeping me on track. Still lots to do but I feel positive!
Janis (Mum to 2 grown up boys): It was wonderful! I love Lisa. She makes the complex simple and what feels difficult, feel easy. If you feel lost, this is the woman who can help you see the path to your own brilliant happiness.
Claire (Part-time working mum of 3): Having children is one of the most uplifting and at the same time one of the most challenging times in anyones life. In many ways I lost my sense of personal direction and sense of self. Lisa’s clear, calm and thoughtful advice made a significant difference to my ability to enjoy motherhood and face challenges without feeling quite so anxious and stressed. If you’re frazzled and you cant see the wood for the trees then Lisa’s courses or her coaching service is exactly what you need!
Hannah (Full time working mum of 3): Lisa has an incredible way to cut through the noise and help you see a small change that can make a bit impact on your life and by consequence your family. She doesn’t bring tricks or gimmicks but common sense and a knowledge of the challenges of trying to adjust to family life and to juggle the competing needs we all have on us. Her honesty that you cannot have it all and to pick which parts of your life that you need to be brilliant in now and accept you won’t be able to invest in everything made a huge difference to how I viewed myself
Elena (Business owner): Why I love to work with Lisa? Lisa has changed as coach and with her I changed too. We start in 2007 and we still keep on being coach and client….why? Because Lisa is human not a fake spiritual coach that push her ideas on you. She lives the feelings, the emotions, the experiences on her own skin and that makes her real. So with her I feel comfortable and the fact that she gives me tools and not therapies it works on my own time to understand, I feel at ease still I know I am shifting and growing thanks to her support as coach. Lisa has supported me trough life, losing my wife, running my business , and still today….in my evolution as a woman. I am a better soul today thanks to the presence of Lisa in my life. So thank you Lisa Pearson
