After travelling down the conventional route to become well and finding that it just skimmed the surface of what I needed to become fully well and empowered, I turned to alternative modalities as a means of recovery, which improved not only my physical health but also my whole outlook on my life.
I was so impressed with the results I decided to learn more about the body mind connection and how to read the body and the messages people were sending and receiving. By 1993 I had Diplomas in Anatomy, Physiology, Massage, and Aromatherapy and utilising previous business skills opened my own business in the UK.
Recognising that ownership of our success and well being rests with us, enabled me to share my knowledge and show people how to take leadership of themselves and their lives both personally and professionally.
At this time I consciously re-connected with my highly tuned intuitive abilities experienced since a child and my ability to 'read' people. Learning to manage and focus this gift enabled me to utilise it alongside my business background and training to assist clients to generate greater awareness and success at a core level.
In 1994 I emigrated to Auckland, New Zealand, and set up a business in the area of holistic wellness. Continuing studies in the field of Body Mind Analysis to become a Master Practitioner (body language specialist) as well as gaining Certificates in Counselling & Hypnotherapy.
Working with many clients I witnessed first hand the impact our thinking, emotions and body position (posture, gestures) has on our communication, overall health, relationships and success levels.
The process of empowering clients took me down a path of discovery undertaking study in many modalities, developing a holistic approach to synergise mind-emotions-body, as well as studying the life & leadership coaching model (review relevant qualifications).
Gaining a coaching accreditation via the Life Coaching Academy (LCA), an internationally recognised coaching organisation, I became a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
Incorporating previous skills and business experience along with my coaching accreditation and qualifications in hypnotherapy & facial micro-expressions training, my business transformed into The Body Language Company at Think Success Training Limited.
My portfolio includes executive & leadership coaching, 1:1 body language analysis, facilitation, training & speaking - conscious communication & body language courses, micro-expressions training, stress management & confidence, motivation & rapport building, presentation & leadership presence presentation.
My coaching, training & speaking success is attributed to increasing clients self awareness, self belief & responsibility to maximise their ability to take positive action, increasing their Influence & Personal Impact in all areas.
