"If I can get through that imagine how much stronger I'll be - always go forward" sounds great until you realise you're making life harder for yourself than needs be by not addressing the issues of the past and carrying those chips on your shoulder.
Bank Stores was the pub my Auntie ran and we talked about our family legacy of extremely poor mental health and it sparked my passion for understanding the how and why of people, and our behaviours. Like most; when I hit what felt like rock bottom and found a way out I wanted to share my experiences in a positive way which could help others, so using that name in memory of my Auntie Norma to help others feels right.
It was only in my early 30s when "my head went" that I properly explored NLP and Coaching as a vocation. I take a holistic view and modernise traditional techniques and ideas and I am agnostic about any style of coaching or belief structure.
It took me a couple of decades of feeling as though I could only rely on myself, especially during periods of being homeless or self-destructive, to realise I was repeating mistakes I'd unconsciously learned. Seeking or accepting help when you're at your worst isn't easy but there is always someone to help if you look hard enough and open yourself up to making a positive change.
I've not completed life. I continue to make mistakes and share personal experience.
Seeking perfection is an unrealistic expectation. All we can do is continue learning and take forward the positive.
I am qualified in coaching, Timeline Therapy, Hypnosis, Mental Health First Aid, and Neurolinguistic programming.
How we manage our workload, meet, communicate, entertain ourselves, and interact, have all changed.
Don't allow that bluescreen to stop you improving.
Our IRL and online environments are constantly changing.
Our values, knowledge, emotions, and beliefs constantly change also - sometimes for the worse.
Awareness, Acceptance, and Adjustment, are key to adapting in positive ways.
We must take forward the positive learnings while leaving behind the negative emotion.
