I grew up in a typical 1930’s semi-detached home where my parents suffered from mental ill health, gambling and drinking….all of which resulted in physical and mental abuse.
At the age of 16, I moved out of home and after couch surfing (which included sleeping In a car!) and trying out various jobs for a few years, I fell into Estate Agency and bought my first property at 19.
For most in the industry, the job was a way to get a flash company car, wear the suit and earn lots of commission.
For me, I felt humbled that strangers would trust me with their largest asset and I would help them emotionally during their move, whether the reasons were bereavement, divorce, job relocation or financial.
Over the years I perfected these skills to ensure that I helped them in the best way possible and now own one of the Leading Estate Agents in Hayes, Middlesex.
I will regularly pop up on your TV screen as I have appeared on ‘Homes Under the Hammer’ (my claim to fame!) sharing my expertise.
One thing I had learnt growing up is that I loved to help people even if it was just giving ‘A Slice Of Happiness’ so alongside my career and being a single mum I started investing in my journey in life coaching and researching behavioural change to learn how I could improve myself and help others to the best of my ability.
It had been a bumpy journey in my private life up until that point. I had had a number of failed relationships, used recreational drugs and drank excess alcohol as a way to escape the way I felt about myself. If it wasn’t for my close circle picking up the pieces at regular intervals, my life could have turned out very differently.
I trained for several years and am a Master Practitioner in NLP, Instructor in Hypnotherapy and Practitioner in Reiki. Despite being highly skilled within all these fields, I came across a new understanding which blew me away.
So much so that I now no longer practice NLP, Hypnotherapy or Reiki and concentrate solely with this approach. The transformations that I’ve witnessed in prisons, with those affected by Homelessness to the rich and famous in Hollywood showed proof that every individual can escape the emotional prison they live in with a very simple truth – something that we weren’t taught at school.
Now, i wake up each day, living in the present, feeling blessed to have learnt what I have and know and love who I am without having to feel the urge to have a ‘blow out’ to escape the inside pain I used to feel.
Even the ripple effect has improved relationships around me and my ‘day to day’ life is continuously improving with minimal effort!
I’m passionate about helping those in the community…
I invest a lot into the Charity sector where my ‘A Slice of Happiness’ Programmes support those affected by Homelessness in Hertfordshire.
Following the remarkable results achieved in a test Programme, my Homelessness Programmes were endorsed by the Human Research Review Institute for Integral Studies in the State of California in December 2018 .
In August 2018, I was invited to Buckingham Palace in recognition of the voluntary work I do with those affected by Homelessness.
