Encouraging You To "Live Life More Fully"

My Story

Hello I’m Louise

Thank you for dropping by and looking at my website.   Here is a little about me.

I love to make a difference to people and seeing them happy!  I’m a middle child and love surrounding myself with my family and friends.

Working in HR gave me the opportunity to meet and work with a wide variety of people, however, something wasn’t right.  Every now and then I would find myself questioning my ability. I lacked so much confidence, I felt like a fraud.  I had this constant negative voice in my head telling me that I was not good enough for anything and it really impacted my friendships and relationships, not only at work but also in love!  I’d shut myself off, comfort eat and then blow things out of proportion; resulting in me being in constant tears.

After years of continuous cycle I realised that I’ve suffered from limiting self-belief and lack of self-confidence for most of my life.  I really understand the anxieties that arise and stop you from doing what you really want whether this is in your professional or personal life.

But it took me to have the biggest ‘plot twist’ imaginable to make you reflect and view life differently.

In 2017, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and after my first chemotherapy session I was diagnosed with appendicitis and had to undergo major surgery!  I’ve been through the fire and it’s resolved my desire to help people. It also gave me the most valuable lesson of all – I have to start living the life I want now!!

And that means being true to me and doing what makes me happy – helping others to happiness and ultimately enabling them to
“Live life more fully”.

Can I Help You?

There’s no obligation and perhaps it’ll be the first step towards the life you’re dreaming of.
