What’s brought me here?
Hi, I’m Heather and I’d like to share something of myself and the life journey that has led me to this moment.
In my 20's, after gaining a teaching degree and studying Psychology, I became a primary teacher and taught in West London. When I was 24, I took a two year teaching contract in Colombia, South America. From my late teens onwards, I developed a taste for adventure and longed to travel, so I jumped at this opportunity. I had an amazing time, learnt so much about life and expanded my horizons.
In my mid 30's, I met my husband, got married and relocated to Devon where we started a family. It was a move that required many unexpected adjustments after London life – we were living in a rural area and I had a long drive across Dartmoor to get to work. No handy late-night shops here!
Unfortunately in my 40's, I had a challenging marriage break-up followed by a major health crisis. Totally exhausted, I felt depressed and alone. I was forced to re-evaluate my life. I realised I had lost an essential connection to myself. I didn’t know who I was anymore – the capable career woman had completely disappeared. I was an emotional wreck with no confidence.
Gradually, I pulled myself up and put myself back into the centre of my life. From this point onwards, my life and career decisions started to fall into place.
I developed a new career as an educational consultant, but by my early 50's working in the public sector no longer inspired me. I realised that my emerging values did not align with being part of a large organisation. I felt like a square peg in a round hole and longed to be free from the constraints of being an employee. I wanted to work with people and support them on their own transition journeys.
It was a natural step for me to re-train as a life and business coach. Transitioning to self-employment brought many new and exciting possibilities. I discovered that the deeper I connected to who I was inside, the more the outside world expanded to meet me. The serendipity of life events and connections that show up continue to surprise me. Until my mid 40's, life was a bit of a roller-coast ride, but now any decisions and choices I make come from a heart-centred and grounded place.
In 2010, I discovered a system of guided change called Logosynthesis and became the first UK master practitioner and trainer in this new work. Logosynthesis ® is a powerful way to clear old beliefs and patterns, fear, anxiety, stress and much more. I am continually amazed by how elegantly Logosynthesis ® releases energy from the past and enables my clients to move forward in a freer, lighter and more expanded way.
Last year, I turned 60 and continue to live a vibrant life. I really love supporting women in their 40's, 50's and beyond to create their own vibrant lives.
I believe that our 40's and 50s are the perfect time to create the life we have dreamed of. I am here to enable you to reconnect to your dreams, rediscover your joy and zest for life so that you can be the fullest expression of yourself!
