So, Who Am I?

I am a woman who believes anything is possible. I grew up recognising that toxicity in a relationship affects not just the couple, but the children and family, and friends.

As a teen, I learned that we have to get to know who we are and what we have control over. It was a difficult lesson for me and I made many mistakes on my path to independence. I learned that being co-dependent is not healthy and that becoming independent is scary. I had been living with limited choices, then having choices became overwhelming.

I learned that the experience of loving someone on a higher level, and knowing when to ask for help and when to stand on my own two feet is amazing and empowering.

I am bringing my knowledge, skills, and experience to you. To help you see your amazing world and feel the warmth of a higher level of love with someone who wants you to grow and be who you know deep down is the woman with power over her life.

Book an insight call so that we can begin that journey to meet the woman with her power.

DISC Behavioural Model

Do you want to understand why you act in one way with certain people and another way with others? Are you aware of the changes that you make in your interactions with others?

Knowing who you are and how you handle stressful situations can help you maintain your personal boundaries. How do think that others impact the way that you deal with a situation? What are your learned responses from the past and how do they impact the way that you interact with those around you?

If you want to find out more about DISC analysis, please contact me and we can arrange a call.
