You're kind, caring and always there when needed, available to lend a hand or give support, selflessly putting the needs of others before your own.
But you're tired, exhausted and overwhelmed, your life unbalanced and your own needs being ignored.
Looking after your own needs and caring for yourself isn't selfish, it's necessary - but you're not daft, you already know that don't you?
What you don't know is how to actually go about it without feeling selfish, guilty, or hurting other people's feelings.
I work with 'people pleasers' just like you, the givers of this world and show you how to find balance, take as well as give and form boundaries to protect yourself from those that would take too much.
There's so much you can do in whatever time you have to make powerful changes, and as you explore this site you'll see what I mean.
I really do!
I'm a recovering people pleaser, forced by circumstance (divorce, single parenthood and depression) to make a change.
Through both personal and professional experience I can guide you through your own process of valuing, caring for and ultimately loving yourself.
