This is the story of how Ros transformed her life in three months, through my Sustainable Success coaching programme.
I am sharing it with you to celebrate. My heart sang from hearing what has changed and I hope you will be uplifted too.
I also hope that reading the story will inspire you or someone you know to reach out and say you want to make similar changes to your life. If Ros can do it, so can you.
She went from depressed, anxious, suffering from chronic fatigue and unemployed to the happiest and healthiest she’s consistently felt in years.
She is an HR consultant who is now training to be a health coach.
Feeling unfulfilled and unhappy
I got to the stage where I couldn’t actually see a way out and I don’t know whether I would say rock bottom, but I was almost there. I’d been doing a very unfulfilling HR job and I just didn’t know which way to turn. I wasn’t fulfilled generally in my life. There just wasn’t really anything going for me.
I have suffered quite badly with bouts of depression. I wasn’t doing any form of exercise. Relationships weren’t good and generally everything in my life just… I couldn’t see any positives. I really, really couldn’t. I needed help. And my health physically and mentally just was not great at all.
From no exercise to exercising every day
When I started talking to Andy, my exercise was on zero and it had been for years. At the end of a few months, it was on 10. I am now exercising every single day.
Pursuing a fulfilling career
After our first call, I actually went home, booked this nutrition course that I was looking into and I am due to finish that in December. I am now on the road to being a qualified health and nutrition coach. I feel so much more fulfilled doing that.
I think one of the main things I learned from Andy was don’t fight your feelings or your thoughts, just accept them. It just really, really, really helped me because for years I have battled depression and mood swings, and whenever I felt particularly low, I got so angry and I was trying to fight it and then got exhausted — it was a vicious circle all the time.
But Andy taught me so many ways to deal with it and that it’s okay to feel like that, and that was really, really powerful for me. That, in turn, increased things like my focus and my confidence, my sleep and everything else.
From negative to positive
Over the 3 months of speaking to Andy, everything gradually, without me even realising it… everything was slowly falling into place. And everything that was really negative when I first spoke to him was, really, becoming so positive.
Meditating reduced anxiety
Meditation has been a huge revelation for me. I have wanted to do it for years but I was always like, ‘No, my focus is terrible. I can’t do that’. He taught me how to meditate. Now I do it, even if it’s just 5 minutes, 3 times a day, I really slow my breathing down and that has hugely helped with anxiety, depression and health. So meditation has been a complete revelation for me.
It’s been life-changing
It’s just been absolutely life-changing and I would encourage anyone to jump into it. I sometimes think what would’ve happened if I hadn’t had those sessions with Andy and I’d probably still be just stuck in a rut. In fact, I know I would be.
Having that person just to speak to — I spoke to Andy even in my darkest darkest hours and he just got me through so much, remaining positive, and he got me to focus. So yeah, it was amazing. Absolutely amazing. I can’t thank him enough for everything really.
It’s quite emotional for me to be honest. It means a lot.
Hearing her tell me about the things that have changed, I felt so proud of her and fulfilled by the work I do.
If you think you or someone you know would benefit from a programme like this, read on. Here are the details:
A 3-month 1–2–1 programme for professionals who want to take their wellbeing and performance to the next level.
Do you want to excel professionally whilst feeling happy and healthy?
Do you ever find yourself thinking, ‘There has got to be more to life than this?’
The Sustainable Success programme is designed to help you create a positive lifestyle that allows you to surpass what you thought was possible for you.
It combines the most effective tools, techniques and practices I have discovered while turning my own passion into a business; everything I have learnt from multiple coaches, courses, workshops, books, podcasts, retreats, daily meditations, my 50 days of failure challenge and a genuine desire to learn from every experience.
And it works. Over the last few years, I have helped people I have coached to:
- Get a promotion to Managing Director and a 10% pay increase
- Make more money from fewer clients, in less time
- Receive the best performance review of their career
- Go from unemployed to getting their dream job
- Deal with depression, anxiety and divorce in a way that made them stronger
- Make a marriage proposal(!)
- Ace their wedding speech
- Improve the most difficult relationships in their life
- Feel confident enough to change jobs after feeling stuck for 11 years
Think these results aren’t possible for you? Think again.
So many times I have heard my clients almost laughing when they told me their goals, because they thought they were so impossible. Some of them then went on to achieve those goals within 24 hours — or even by the end of the session.
When we look back together at what they said about themselves at the start of the programme, they can’t believe it was them. They are a different person.
This programme will redefine who you are and what you think is possible for you.
The 5 elements of the programme
The programme involves 10 powerful 60-minute coaching sessions over 3 months, with challenges to complete inbetween.
Most people never give themselves the time and space to think about what they really, really want. We’ll start by helping you define and design exactly what you want to create in your life, both personally and professionally.
You will create routines that will help you to improve mentally, emotionally and physically every day.
You will overcome fears, doubts and insecurities that are holding you back and replace them with a powerful ‘can-do’ mindset.
By setting and achieving goals, you will start to realise that you can achieve pretty much anything you put your mind to. Your confidence will sky-rocket.
Happiness and success is an inside job. You will learn to master your thoughts and emotions so that they work for you, not against you.
7 questions to see if you might be right for this programme:
- Are you ready to make a significant upgrade to your life?
- Do you think you can’t do it by yourself?
- Does some part of you believe this change is possible
- Are you willing to invest time, money and energy?
- Are you ready to commit: to make this a priority, show up each week and do whatever’s required?
- Are you ready to take responsibility for your life as it is now and not make excuses or blame others?
- Are you willing to face uncomfortable emotions: fear, self-doubt, sadness, anger and pain?
I am passionate about the work I do because I consistently see it having a positive impact on people’s lives.
Over the last 11 years I have set up two successful businesses. In that time I have had to overcome rejection, self-doubt, fear of failure, getting into debt and financial insecurity.
I have had to find the courage, persistence and strength to keep going and be willing to consistently find ways of overcoming the obstacles in my path.
The beliefs that shape my coaching are:
- There is innate goodness in everyone
- Everyone can change, if they really want to
- Things can and should be better
Of course, you can’t guarantee results from coaching. But over the years I have seen people:
- Become calmer and able to let go of stress, anxiety, fear, sadness and anger much more quickly when they arise.
- Become more confident that they can achieve whatever they put their mind to.
- Sleep better and be much more able to switch off after work.
- Improve their relationships with their parents, partner, siblings and colleagues (even the most challenging ones!).
- Feel much happier and more fulfilled at work.
- Be much clearer about what’s important to them and design their life accordingly.
- Get back on track when they lose focus or break their positive habits.
- Become more comfortable with who they are and willing to express themselves.
- Become more courageous and willing to face their fears.
- Release pain and tension from their body.
