If you can’t fly, climb

 

JugWhen was the last time you saw something you wanted and you just went for it? When I see women that I’ve worked with get exactly what they want, I feel such joy. I know how challenging their path was and I can see the difference between the belief they had in themselves when they met me and the self-belief they have now. I learned a long time ago that such a powerful change doesn’t happen instantly.

My mum was not her depression and she was not her suicide. She was a beautifully complicated human who told herself the wrong story. She told herself she was not worthy of the things she wanted in life. Through both her struggles and successes, I noticed that all of the obstacles in her way seemed to boil down to one thing, a lack of self-belief. When her time came, I was only 21 but I promised myself I wouldn’t let it define me. I was already creating a different story.

My story is now one of self-belief and confidence. It wasn’t an easy place to get to. It took a lot of time and a lot of work. I didn’t fly to get here, I used the support of others to help me follow the wise words on a jug that my mum gave me when I was in my early teens: “If you can’t fly, climb”.

If you need somebody to climb with you, get in touch.

We’ll start with a chat to see if we’re a good fit. I don’t charge for this and there’s no pressure to take it beyond this point.
