Does your life need an upgrade? Are you looking for a fresh start not sure how to create the outcome that you want. Working with me is about identifying the outcome you want to see, and achieving that. Maybe you want a different career, or stop feeling invisible. Is there a feeling that your life was meant for more?
Are you stuck in a rut at work or at home, are you putting off starting your side hustle, or writing that book. Have you forgotten who you are because you are busy taking care of everyone else's needs? Are you lost somewhere in your to-do list, and the day has slipped past you? Are you sitting under a dark cloud?
A particularly chaotic time of my life was when we had moved back into our home following a major renovation. Within a few weeks of being back in our home, with the unpacking just about finished my third child was born. I had three children under three years of age, two teenage stepchildren (intermittently) and my closest family member was 600 km away. I was sleep deprived and lost somewhere between a 3 am feed, preparing dinner and the next load of washing. And the dog needed walking. It was chaos.
Life had to improve and it did.
I learnt tools and techniques, read books, went on numerous courses and tested the tools in my melting pot (family).
Can I help you bring calm to the chaos, to be the parent you want to be, the best parent you can be?
Essentially my objective is to bring the calm to the chaos. The chaos in your home and the chaos in your head.
