When Jo first came to me for help, she was exhausted, lost her sparkle and zest for life after working more than a 40 hour week in a stressful, round the clock job as well as caring for her father after a cancer diagnosis. There was no time for her or her ‘joy list’. 12 months on, Jo is living her happiest life yet and a life she has designed around her joy list! To receive a testimonial from someone who refers to me as Mary Poppins has made me so happy as I know I have left a patient client with a ‘carpet bag’ of tools and techniques they can call on and empower themselves to feel happy and healthy.
In Jo’s words:
My top three goals upon starting the 6-month program were understanding my life direction, believing in my capabilities and understanding my emotional headspace.
Ali was able to help me work toward these goals by asking open questions to get me thinking, listening to my crazy ideas and never, ever judging me. The biggest tangible change I have noticed since beginning the program has been that I lead a very different life than 6 months ago! I have followed all of my crazy ideas through and I’m so glad I did!
The most significant overall change I have noticed has been that I am a lot calmer within my head; a lot clearer about life and a 100% happier than I have been in a very long time. The most useful tips and/or techniques to bring about a change were to start believing in myself that I can do anything if I put my mind to it!
From working with Ali my health has improved because my coaching was more about giving my mind an over haul – and as such I am not stressed; my headaches have eased considerably and I don’t emotionally eat quite so much.
I would describe my Health Coach, Ali, as calm, patient, persistent, understanding, kind, thoughtful, easy to talk to, wonderful. In fact to quote Mary Poppins ‘Practically Perfect In Every Way’….
I would recommend my Health Coach, Ali, to anyone who needs some direction, is a bit confused on who they are in the world or just needs their headspace re-organizing. I have enjoyed my coaching session SO MUCH and cannot believe the change in me as a person. I would NEVER EVER have believed you if you’d told me in February last year, I would be a MUA, a published writer AND a motivational speaker in 12 months – but I am! If anyone is thinking coaching is just for high flying business people, think again! I’m a normal 50-year-old woman who was just a bit lost – professionally and personally. Now, I feel like I am the person that I was always destined to be. Thank you, Ali so much, I will be forever in your debt for helping me unravel the real Jo!
