"I wanted to show them that they could be and do anything with their lives, that they didn't have to settle for second best if they knew they wanted more from themselves and from life. I wanted them to know that they got to chose, that their own limitations, the limited minds of others and the limits society puts on us is not a reason to stop following our dreams and making them happen. I wanted them to know that no matter what life threw at them they always had the strength in them and fierce courage to get back up and keep going - even when it hurts"
Who am I?
I'm a proud Mom of these two gorgeous humans who are the centre of my universe and ... the reason I decided to explore what's possible.
So I changed my life.
The moment I commited to my creative path there was no going back, it has been, and continues to be, one of the wildest rides of my life.
I went from working five nights a week as a care assistant in a tiny little village in the back of beyond to having my own successful high street photography studio and speaking all over the world about my approach to creativity
I've been awarded just shy of 300 presitgeous accolades for my creative work.
I stepped up and took on the role of CEO of an international photographic association that I lead back from the brink of collapse.
I've organised and hosted international awards celebrating some incredible global creative talent.
I'm an international photographic judge, mentor and photographic qualifications examiner.
I'm am one of the few women in my industry to have been awarded the highest honour for thier creative work.
In 2016 I retrained as a creative leadership & business coach and have helped creatives from all over the world understand themselves, stop feeling stuck, find their voice and figure out how to bring who they are being as a creative into alignment with what they are doing in their businesses
But that's not the whole story, it's just a part of it. I've had my struggles. I've met trauma and I've experienced and witnessed things I never thought I would, should or could. I've had the breakdown and the breakthtoughs. I've been burnt out, overwhelmed, and debilitated by that lack of self belief. I've also done the inner work so my outer world could change and in all it's guises, creativity gifted me the voice, space, and tools to do that.
My ability to listen to the voice deep inside of me that has never let me stop believing that there is another way, and my ability to see life through a different lens has enabled me to move beyond the struggle, meet my fears head on, diving deep into the shadows of my own soul so I can keep rising up, breaking through my own limiting beliefs and realising my own potential and create from that space ... inspiring and empowering my clients to find that same space in themselves too. It's been a mutual journey.
And if there's one thing that I've learnt on this path ... it's that it all starts with you
You Are Meant For More...
You know you have the potential to do something amazing, you can feel it, you know it's there - but something is holding you back.
At times you feel lost, like something's missing - you don't know what that something is, you just know that when you find it ... it will be the key that will unlock everything.
You do the work, you keep trying, your determination is relentless and yet no matter how hard you try you just can't get there.
You are tired of doing all the things you feel you should be doing and living an unfulfilled and busy life.
You are fed-up of letting lack of self belief, direction, clarity and purpose hold you back; or maybe you are tired of living from one burn out to another, of being your own slave driver and living in and with the relentlessness of that.
Perhaps you're exhausted, tired of overwhelm being the lead character in your story. Whatever your story is upto now that's holding you back - you are ready to say no to it - the perfectionism, the overachieving, overgiving, undervaluing, self judgement, procrastination, helplessness, all of it.
You love your business or the profession you are in - infact you can't imagine ever doing anything else and yet you also know in its current state it either not working for you - it's not enough, or it's not reaching it's potential
You are ready to do more of what you love, align who you are being as an authentic creator with what you are doing in your business and make a difference doing what you love.
You got yourself to here because of who you are, because you showed up and pushed yourself to your limits, but to get to where you want to go theres a different approach required so you can rise up and meet your potential.
And to do that - you've got to rise up and meet your next level of Self.
AND I WILL SHOW YOU HOW
I will never stop believing in you
When I understood my stories and patterns and stepped into who I was becoming on the otherside of my fears blocks and limiting beliefs my whole world changed as I created from this space.
When I embraced my authentic self and lead in all areas of my life from this space with purpose, passion and a plan I was able to chose how my life and business was going to be and design it, with intention, to work for me and lead from this space.
And, I love nothing more than showing my clients how they too can break their own rules and step out from behind their own limits, realise their potential and lead from this space.
How they too can feel that magic and how the power of authentic creativity can impact all areas of their lives.
How they can build a business with soul.
And what they are learning is, that when we bring all those elements together ... passion and profit, creativity and business - when they learn to co-create - money is a happy side effect of doing what we love.
That is the power of authentic creativity.
That is the sum of magic.
WE ALL HIT A PLATEAU
