As a Wild coach, I like to embrace moving our bodies outdoors. I love the idea of getting back to nature and the positive impact it has on our minds, bodies and souls.
But that can feel so alien in a society that has raised us to believe that success is about what goes on in our minds and exclusively favours our intellectual intelligence.
I work with people to listen to what their bodies are telling them to avoid disengagement and burnout. To look at their challenges in a different way and tap into their intuition to find options that may not have been visible before.
I encourage people to get outdoors, break the mould and do things on their own terms. Building a business around what works for you and feeds your soul so you can give back to others from a place of contentment.
I learnt this the hard way. After 20 years in the corporate sector, I worked in the only way I knew how - working harder on other people’s terms and just being grateful that I had a job that paid a good bonus and allowed me some flexibility for childcare. Hooked on the feedback that I was reliable, trustworthy, a good worker, etc...
Until I wasn’t grateful anymore. I couldn’t continue sitting at my desk in tears because I was so broken by work that no longer held meaning for me and the accolades and bonus payouts couldn't make up for me what felt like selling my soul and taking me away from my family (not just in body but in mind too).
