It’s a phrase that’s overused, but I am—genuinely—a people person.

I am a mother, a sister, a daughter, a partner and a friend. I am sociable and driven.

Seeing people happy brings my such joy. I have built my career on my love for supporting people and I find nothing more fulfilling than helping someone feel good and at peace within themselves. Working as an EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Trainer, Mentor and Practitioner is a natural extension of the best elements of my career thus far.

While each of us have our own paths to follow, today’s modern world provides us with common mountains to climb. I myself have encountered, and successfully scaled, a few of them. 

In my early years, my parents separated, I was bullied throughout school, I struggled with the fact that I have a lazy eye and I lacked direction. As an adult, I lost my beloved dad and when I had my daughter I struggled to transition from ‘career women’ to ‘mum’—and then to both.

These experiences each had a profound effect on me for different reasons. There have been moments when I’ve felt sad, helpless, lost, heartbroken, anxious, stressed, guilty and even resentful. However, as I have reflected, worked on myself, grown and embraced these tough times, I have realized that they made me who I am.

It’s natural for setbacks to not only stall your progress, but take a significant emotional toll, too. As humans, when we go through a trauma, we will do anything not to experience it again. This can result in us sabotaging our own progress without realizing it. We become guarded, we build mental barriers, we get—here comes that word—triggered by people and situations, and we fear we will fail or get hurt again.

This thinking or emotional baggage weighs us down. It shortens our vision and stops us from trying again, going out on a limb, dealing with further adversities, or experiencing fulfilment and joy. It can even have a major impact on our health. All areas are impacted by this – mind, body and spirit! I myself have been restrained by this maladaptive thinking and negative emotion and I followed my own healing journey.

I started working on some of these issues by seeing a mixture of counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists over the years. In a few of the sessions the approach just didn’t resonate with me. In others, I gained wonderful insights and helpful tools.

At times I felt great, truly blessed, but there was always a part of me knowing that life could be better. I could feel more satisfied and I could be a better person to my loved ones and myself. It was when I found Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT, also known as ‘tapping’), and my major healing journey began, that my loftier aspirations were realised.

Since then, I have been living a more joyful and fulfilled life. I am proud of the fact that I am now more driven (working full-time and studying, whilst also being a mummy and partner), increasingly confident, and even more eager to help others. I am proud that I have turned my weaknesses into a source of strength and I’m super excited to help others do the same through EFT.

I’m happy to report that I now have a successful career whilst being a damn good mum (being perfectly imperfect), partner, daughter, sister and friend.

Being a Master EFT Trainer with EFT International, Mentor and EFT Practitioner and holding a Diploma of Counselling, I combine my 20 years’ of work experience in human resources to help people understand themselves, so they can live a happier and healthier life wholeheartedly.
