Hi, I'm Lucy, a mum to two gorgeous girls, a business owner, an aspiring artist, and a life coach. I get a kick out of helping people make their dreams real.
I used to make really bad decisions, partly because I didn't really know what I wanted, or had no idea how to ask. I often found myself staying in unhappy scenarios, sometimes for years, because I didn't have the balls or the tools to get myself out.
Then I had quite a bad car accident, but thankfully I didn't die, so I took the opportunity to have a second go at things.
The power to choose
First I shifted how I looked at life - instead of being the victim of my circumstances, I decided to take full responsibility for my choices - how my life was turning out was down to me. If I was living in shit, it was because I was choosing to. If things weren't happening, it was because I wasn't making them happen.
What do I want?
I still didn't know what I wanted, so for inspiration I went on some adventures - Australia to learn to sail, produce a music festival and become a permaculture designer; Prague and Seville to teach English; daily yoga for a month on a Thai island; Costa Rica for surf lessons and living in a tipi; an ecovillage in Scotland to experience sustainable living; hanging out in New York just soaking up the atmosphere. I ended up in Spain, on a leadership retreat, and it all finally came together. I decided I want to use my own experiences to help others going through similar stuff, to share what I've learned so far, in the hope of making a difference in some small way.
I became a Co-Active coach (trained and certified with CTI), to give me the tools to help in a structured way. Where it seems my own talents lie is in helping people turn their passions and talents into a livelihood they'll love, and want to stick with.
So welcome to my digital home, dive right in, I hope you enjoy what you find!
