A shy adolescent – quiet, judgmental, scared…. It took me until my mid-twenties to decide I no longer wanted to carry around the pain of being socially anxious.
I had blamed myself for years, thinking I was the only one struggling with this, not knowing that it is incredibly common to struggle socially, that beating yourself up really doesn’t help and that there is a whole other different world free of social anxiety waiting for you on the other side.
Fed up of being lost for words, scared to speak my mind and overly concerned with what others thought of me, I made a conscious decision to turn my life around.
For the last five years I have dedicated my time to developing my ability to interact socially. Learning from books, seeking out the best mentors and undertaking hours of practice, I have tapped into my previously dormant extrovert qualities.
I won’t lie; it has been a painful journey. Handling rejection when your perception of rejection is wrong is extremely hard.
The key: persistence, a will to learn and refusal to suffer.
The catalyst: surrounding myself with mentors (the best in the business).
The outcome: far from what I expected.
Moving to London was a huge turning point in my life. I began to approach coaching companies who quickly recognised my ability and desire to transform lives.
My first paid work was with Your Charisma Coach and was a massive achievement for me. My passion for training was found and I’ve been teaching and speaking for a wide variety of coaching companies, and training my own clients, for the past two years.
I have a professional approach to my work and get results, but I also recognise (having gone through the process myself) that we can take it all too seriously sometimes, so fun, laughter and play is a theme throughout my training. I’ll hold you accountable and keep you at the edge of your comfort zone. Your excuses won’t pass with me…but you’ll thank me for that.
My vision is to further transform thousands of lives, continuing to guide people from feelings of fear, insecurity and awkwardness to a place of power, strength and charisma. I will speak and spread my message from stages around the world.
