I built a career as an HR executive over 20 years. I worked across a broad range of sectors, including Finance, healthcare, Manufacturing, Construction and Government.
I became a Mindset Coach because I know what it’s like to reach an Executive level, be in the position you wanted – but to realise that you’re stressed and working harder than ever before.
Earlier in my career, I was in my new Executive role and excited to be in the team. I was accountable to the Managing Director and responsible for all the deliverables for the HR team including recruitment for a brand new business being established.
I took on more and more, and even though I needed more resources I delivered – because I was the leader. But the Managing Director didn’t recognise the hard work and hours – the more I achieved, the more they expected.
My health was suffering, I was on antidepressants.
I had lost confidence in myself and my skills, believing I had to push through burnout and keep achieving.
This was the moment I realised, I needed to learn to say no. I needed to slow down, to value myself, to look after myself if I was going to keep my career going.
I found a new role and started looking at ways I could shift my mindset. This led me to studying coaching and develop a passion for helping people through Coaching, Hypnotherapy and Neurolinguistic Programming.
Since I established my Coaching Practice, I have helped hundreds of professionals and leaders from all walks of life overcome the overwhelm and stress, to become a calm, confident leader.
