I am a certified transformation and life coach who is passionate about helping women manage stress by empowering them to let go of limiting beliefs and negative emotions. Having worked in a highly stressful corporate environment for many years, and recently becoming a mamma, I really understand stress and how it can negatively impact all areas of your life.
With uncertainty being heightened exponentially during from the first half of this year, I decided to look deeper into why we struggle so much with uncertainty when this is actually a huge part of every moment of our existence. As the saying goes “The only constant in life is change”, so in other words, uncertainty is the only certainty we have.
As humans we have a fundamental need for certainty, however we also have the need for uncertainty otherwise we start to feel like life is getting stale or get increased feelings of being stuck. There is a fine balance on how we can satisfy both these needs, read this post on how to embrace and reframe uncertainty.read more
So many people start off the new year with the hype of a fresh start, anticipation that this year will in some way be better than the last, so unless you have a really accurate crystal ball of some sort, I don’t think that any of us could have predicted exactly the way this year has unfolded so far.

If you were struggling prior to this lockdown with stress or burnout then this will definitely be heightened even further during this time, which is why I wanted to write this blog post to give you some hope.read more

Or on the occasional day, maybe once or twice a month you may find yourself crying in the bathroom at work? Or maybe you fell into a deep spiral of anger and depression after you single handedly worked evenings and weekends to make sure a certain project didn’t fall apart, then when the project ended up an amazing success, your name was nowhere to be seen on it… so you went home and hit the wine.
These are just a couple of examples, however situations like these are more common than we like to admit, with more and more people burning out that it is now being recognized as a legitimate diagnosis by the World Health Organisation. According to recent studies, we are more stressed now than we were just 5 years ago, however many of us still feel too scared to talk openly about this as they don’t want to appear weak or put a spotlight questioning their abilities in the workplace.
