My About me page 🙂
Life has a funny way of throwing curve balls at you, usually when you least expect it and can least cope with it. The trick is to learn to expect these obstacles and regard them as mere blips on the pathway to success. I should know.
I have ummmed and aaahhhed about making this site for a very long time, not least because I am a very private person and exposing myself and my soul in this way is definitely outside my comfort zone. But then I have found most worthwhile things in life are outside my comfort zone. Far outside! I could have made this site ‘anonymously’ and hence avoided the criticism I am sure i will get, but then the alternative is to do nothing, say nothing, same old, and be nothing. I believe God/the Universe does not give you a yearning desire (in my case helping people and writing) without also giving you the skill set to do it. Lets hope I am right! 🙂
I have written since I could hold a pencil, it took me until I was 42 to actually ever even tell a living soul that I wrote. Before that people just thought i was messy and disorganised as I had paperwork and books everywhere (taunting me half the time!) Creative people tend to be visual. You can spot them by their nice (if quirky) clothes and animated expressions. I often think it must be lovely not to be creative and to have a nice quiet well behaved mind that doesn’t wake you up at 2 am with a best selling idea, but now I embrace my differences and love it! I would have made a lousy sheep anyway, I am far too disobedient for that! 🙂
I am also a great believer in if you have hard experiences, and you not only overcome them but thrive, then you have an absolute duty to share and help others who are also struggling. It took me a long time to learn to make sure they actually wanted the help first though, I think I may have scared and annoyed a few people along the way with my unsolicited opinions, but you live and learn! 😉
And that is the whole purpose of this site, I have made the mistakes, overcome the issues, and can show you the simplest way to restore your soul back to the calm, happy, smiley human being you once were, before your life imploded. I know I can, because I’ve been there. It wasn’t fun, not at all, but the depth of understanding and the kindness and clarity of soul it gives you is not to be knocked. I see things quite differently from most people, having had so much happen to me that I now have a 1000 mile view point of what life is really about. But it’s still fresh enough in my head that I can completely relate to you and your current situation, feel your pain, and show you the best way out to happiness and peace.
I believe this so much that if you choose to work with me and you’re not happy, I offer 100% no quibble refund. So far no one has asked for a refund. Which is kind of nice.
Okay so enough chat, what makes me qualified to offer you help? Do I have degrees coming out of my backside? Nope. Did I attend some fancy 5k course that gave me (and everyone else) a ‘certificate’ at the end of it? Nope. I do have a Certificate in Counselling, but personally I think life experience is far more important, as then you have ‘walked a mile in someone elses shoes’ and really get it.
So, I believe I have a lot to offer, from what I know, what I’ve overcome, and that’s why I think I can honestly say I can help you (even if others couldn’t) because I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt, burnt it, and started afresh and better!
I once heard hurts in Life described as Scar tissue “getting strong in the weak places”, and I like that. Very apt.
Let me help you do that! And let’s even have some fun along the way, Life is hard enough without being all doom and gloom. I don’t know about you, but most Counsellors seem to need antidepressants themselves!
