I like to think that I have lived a life full of diversity, adventure and change. As well as being a qualified transformational life coach, I am a professional languages teacher, a business owner as well as a wife and mother.
I've previously worked in tourism and advertising, I've lived in 3 different countries and I speak Spanish, English, French and Italian.
Recent years have given me a deep understanding of the challenge of balancing success at work with a healthy family life. I have a lot of experience in juggling all the balls of life, of identifying my own weaknesses or fears in my personal journey, and of working hard to beat them. This is large part of the value I can bring to my clients as their coach.
A FRESH START
I arrived in London in 2011 with the desire to make a fresh start, to become fluent in English and to begin a new professional chapter of my life as my own boss.
I started working freelance providing French and Spanish lessons to city professionals as well as families. I was very busy and excited about the future, but I also found it difficult to settle into a strange new country, especially with my low level of English language ability at that time. This also resulted in a lack of self-confidence and certainty, which I fought hard to improve.
You will not only find the answers you're looking for, you'll also transform how you think and how you perceive the life around you.
Finally, I am careful that there is no rush to this journey. It's step by step, going at a natural pace and ensuring that strong connection with yourself is retained. This is the only way to identify the actions and the changes which are right for you and will enable genuine life transformation.
Despite the up's and the down's, this period was hugely important for me, a period of creation where I stepped out of my comfort zone and worked to achieve my goals, daring to fail but also determined to succeed. My dream life in London was to have my own business and to find the man of my dreams. I succeeded in both! They are called ADC Languages and James! Even better, James and I have created something else even more special - our beautiful daughter, Ariana.
Those are my creations, my inspirations, and the base of all of them – my business, my relationship and my family – is love. I absolutely love the life I have created. I believe that understanding what we love in all aspects of your life, and making it a reality, automatically leads to happiness and success.
RE-SETTING THE BALANCE
Despite all the positivity, when motherhood arrived I felt a level of vulnerability and emotion I had never felt before. It had a massive impact on my life. All the balls I had been juggling successfully until that point suddenly seemed much harder to keep in the air. I found myself needing to look at myself in the mirror again, to re-evaluate my mindset, to re-discover the person I was, and reset the balance in my life.
It took a while to do this, but it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Through being a working mum who is also a business owner, I've learnt new skills, found a new perspective, met new people and opened up new possibilities. And I'm continuing to create, to seek new ways to improve, to become the best person I can be.
Why am I telling you this? Because I've discovered that, with the right philosophy and thought processes, you can be all the things you want to be. I've made decisions, taken risks, changed my thinking and found out things about myself that I never thought possible. I am determined and passionate about helping you make your discoveries, to make the decisions which will give you the success, happiness and balance you are searching for.
