My previous relationships in business and pleasure left me empty, drained and unfulfilled.
Until I learnt the alchemy of Emotional Independence.
That was the magic that changed everything and opened up my most exciting, magical life.
This toxic environment was a training ground for low self worth, destroyed self esteem and abusive conditioining.
It got worse when my Dad died when I was two years old.
He refused a blood transfusion because we are Jehovah's Witnesses.
I grew up in a toxic soup with an emotionally dead mother and a childhood of abuse...
Leap forward to 16 years old, and I have had enough.
I run away and I am homeless.
My family and the Cult shun me. It's their policy.
I have never returned and I am still shunned to this day
A few years later, I meet the man who will become my husband and my new controller.
We have two beautiful daughters and I stay for 14 years trying to comply with his rules.
During this time, having to be the breadwinner, I take myself through University and study hard.
I embark on my successful psychological career.
Leap forward a few years, while our youngest is a baby, I become very ill.
The doctors diagnose me with cancer. I am terrified. We are all terrified.
It takes 2 years of gruelling chemotherapy and a full stem cell transplant, when it happens....
the wake-up call.
I am gripping onto the bathroom sink in UCH Hospital, London.
I am in my hospital gown with no hair and I catch myself in the mirror.
Physically I am at my lowest. I am in the pit of feeling less than enough.
As I look into my eyes in the mirror, I see the strength of my destiny calling me forward.
This is my deciding point.
I have to get through this illness. I have to learn to love myself.
Two years later, I have clawed myself
to emotional and physical health and I summon up the courage to end my marriage.
I enjoy some good relationships but I find myself in a relationship with my Final Narcissist.
After five years, I no longer recognise myself as I have desperately contorted myself to fit his dysfunction.
Then this happens...
"I am sitting in my car on a cliff buff with wild wind screaming around me and rain lashing down.
I am crying for the 33rd day running.
I realise how unhappy my relationship is, and that my life needs to go in a different direction.
I am contemplating driving over the cliff. I am a wreck.
After an ugly divorce, tumultuous relationships and a final destructive affair with a narcissist,
I feel disillusioned, abandoned and wondering what I am doing wrong.
I am facing a turning point.
I realise I am my biggest problem, I am in my own way.
I am doing something that’s not working in my favour
but I have no clue what I am doing that means I'm successful in every area of my life
I had everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having
- a husband, a house, a family, a successful career -
yet like so many others,
I find myself lost, confused, and searching for what I really want in life.
Newly single and heartbroken, I step out of my comfort zone,
risking everything to change my life,
embarking on a quest for self-discovery.
In my journey, I discover the true liberation of Emotional Independence,
and unexpectedly, true love.
My life's work is the treasure findings of my psychological training and personal experiences
PLUS the hard earned secrets I discover on my quest to "love myself”
by balancing psychological and spiritual worlds
in the pursuit of true love and personal success.
As their Emotional Independence Coach, I help people master Emotional Intelligence to create Emotional Independence in all their interactions with others in their life and businesses.
I couldn't wish for a better way to live than fulfilling my life's work!
My work has been featured on BBC, Radio, Sunday Times, Independent, News of the World, EVE, Take a Break, Spirit Radio, Break the Silence Summits and Freedom Hour.
Today, my proudest achievement, (apart from my daughters of course!) is the relationship I have with myself.
I have learnt never to abandon myself again.
I have learnt Emotional Independence.
I have learnt that no matter what others may do or say, I am enough.
I live a beautiful life by the ocean outside London and Malibu, California.
I have friends I adore,
a funny little dog called Pudding,
a super cool cat who makes me laugh every day,
two grown daughters who have created their own loving lives,
nephews that I love,
radiant health and joy,
a life's work that is creating a legacy of huge impact and long term success to millions ...
... and a love that's super special who shares my passion for our joint adventures and my mission to reconnect to the heart.
Today, I am a "Billionaire"!!
