Having qualified as a Hypnotherapist in 2013, following a desire to move out of corporate life, my journey took a U turn and it wasn't until early 2017 and the impending birth of my son, that I was able to revisit my passions for wellbeing and hypnotherapy. I was also introduced at this time to the amazing benefits of hypno-birthing. 

Navigating the series of massive changes having a child brings can often feel overwhelming and I found the first sixth months tremendously hard. The art of adjusting to life as a Mum didn't come easily to me, the sleep deprivation, feelings of failure and loss of identity. I needed a focus for myself, to increase my confidence, so I continued on my self development journey, towards a more accepting and optimistic outlook. It was at this stage that I embarked on a new adventure to learn how I could help not only other Mums, but anyone in need of mental vitality.

I practice what I recommend to others, focusing on my own self-care, wellbeing and mental health. I have certainly benefited from practicing self-hypnosis, guided meditation, gratitude, visualisation and breath work. As a busy working mum, including these into my day gives me some quiet time to focus, reflect, change perspective and become a better version of myself. It's not always easy, especially when you have limited time, but making small consistent adjustments each day has made all the difference.
