A huge thank you for visiting my online home and a very warm welcome to my personal website, where I share with you my personal journey to where I am now, from happy & content, through lost and confused, to acceptance and self-love.
I am so excited to have you here, to share my journey with you and to help guide you on yours.
I coach, I write, I educate, I inspire , I motivate &, most importantly of all, I empower and enable fellow women in their 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond to be all that they can be, through being true to themselves by realising, unlocking and fulfilling their potential.
I’m also a semi-fitness addict, a yoga beginner, an avid traveller, a lover of the outdoors, especially the beach and the mountains, and a very proud business owner of Pangaea Fitness & Training. Having always had a more ‘secure’ job working for others, whilst also doing a bit for myself, I took the plunge in 2012 to concentrate fully on building and developing my own business on a more full-time basis. It’s not been without its challenges and there have been many bumps in the road, and many a diversion, to get to where I am now but these have just made me more determined and have provided opportunities for reflection, learning and growth.
I’ve coached many people over many years and helped them all too, in some way, shape and form – in both their business and personal lives and it is this which I am taking forward and offering to you. I have my Business degree, an MBA, plenty of teaching, health & fitness qualifications plus life experience and knowledge that I want to use to help women, like you, find out where they want to be and to help them to get there through building up their self- confidence and belief in themselves and their abilities.
The most important thing I can say is that you have to be true to yourself, so many people say that they have regrets about things and I strongly believe that this is because they haven’t been true to themselves. If you’re doing what you believe in then surely you won’t have regrets, even if it doesn’t turn out the way you’d hoped.
Start straight away, write down what you like to do, what you love to do, what makes you excited, what you are enthusiastic about, what you’d like to learn. Then ask yourself are you doing any of it, if not why not, and what do you need to do to make these things happen. Ask yourself what is holding you back, is it a confidence thing, is it the fear of what other people think, is it knowledge or experience you need to acquire. It could be a whole myriad of things, you just have to find out what and then start putting steps in place to work towards whatever it is you want. It won’t happen overnight, you might change tack along the way, but what you are doing is learning to be true to you, to your beliefs and nobody else’s so that you can live a life without regrets and without hiding who you really are.
I am currently developing online, and in-person, coaching programmes, independent of any other organisations or individuals, which will be long-term and will be helping you to get back on track, not just with fitness and nutrition but with your mind-set, your lifestyle, your sleep, your hopes, your dreams (no matter how long you have been dreaming them!) – ‘Coming Back Home to ME’ – it will work on creating and developing strategies and putting processes into place to help you become who you want/are meant to be, helping you to become true to yourself – it is not a quick fix, it is not a diet plan, it is not a workout schedule, it is a lifestyle coaching programme and it will require commitment.
Initially I will be running it for three months with the aim being to introduce longer programmes after the initial programme has been undertaken. It will be something that will evolve as we do, I designed it whilst working on getting back on track from the past few months but, like I previously mentioned, the more I worked on it the more I realised I was actually getting my life back on track from the past few decades! I have pulled on all my experience, knowledge and research from over my many years of life (work and personal) and from those of other experts in different fields of work to bring this programme to you.
The first thing that you need to do is just to register an interest, this does not mean that you need to sign up or be committed to anything at this stage, it’s purely you saying that it sounds good to you and you’d like to know more before you commit. So, if you’d like to register an interest please contact me to do so.
