Hi I’m Andrea and if you’re reading this, you may well be at a point when you want to make a change in your business (and maybe your life) and you’re wondering if I’m the person who can help.
My journey into Personal Development started quite a number of years ago when I was at a stage when I had completely burnt myself out. I was very stressed working really long hours my life was completely out of balance, my confidence was probably at it’s lowest ebb and you know that negative voice in your head that you may get from time to time, well mine had taken permanent residence, so much so I eventually gave it a name!
At that time I had been a practising Barrister for nearly 10 years, I had a busy UK based practice specialising in Employment Law, listed in the Legal 500 and had been appointed Treasury Counsel which I balanced with having three small children.
Initially, I blamed the job, so I changed it, I tutored and inspired students at York University for three years, I had trained myself, as a mature student, yes, a female with checkered educational background (including 2 failing schools & poor A levels!), I got myself into a Durham University, after giving up a successful career in Local Authority and then enjoyed a successful career in law. It seemed the perfect and logical step.
I felt that this move would solve many of the personal difficulties I had faced. However, whilst it did in some respects, many aspects of my mindset that had dominated my career at the Bar, were still there.
So I started my own business, but it soon became apparent that if I wanted my life to change I had to work on myself, on my inside, my mindset, otherwise I was going ever to get more of the same.
I then spent the following years training with some of the best in the field of personal development, training in Life coaching, Clinical Hypnotherapy, NLP, when I was introduced to a simple understanding, founded by the late Sydney Banks, that explains how as humans we really create our experience. This work impacted me so intensely, had such a positive effect on all aspects of my life (including my business) that I am now passionate about sharing it with others.
My thinking has completely changed through my sessions and the excellent books that Andrea has recommended. Andrea has helped me through a very difficult work/life decision which was a huge weight off my shoulders. When you get it, you get it, and you realise how simple it actually is! I can’t tell you how much it has changed my day to day life and the way I deal with life. Don’t get me wrong, I am under no illusions and know I will have tough days but I now feel better equipped to deal with them. There has been no techniques to learn, lists to write, homework to do (I have tried CBT in the past which didn’t work for me) it is just so simple. Andrea’s sessions have helped me realise that I am good to go as I am. Thank you Andrea I am so pleased I reached out to your FB post when I was feeling so low. Hayley
