It started with a move to China
After working in the corporate world in Australia for 10 years I needed a change.
So when the opportunity to move to China came up I was ready to dive into something new and responded with an enthusiastic 'let's go!'
Immediately I was struck by the energy of Shanghai, and found myself immersed in a culture of entrepreneurialism.
I met many creative and innovative women at different stages of building and changing their careers and I felt a connection to these women who were bravely carving their own paths. I built a community called BOSS LADY to support and encourage them on this transformation.
Along the way, I discovered my own passion for helping people to get unstuck and find the work they love to do through 1:1 coaching.
I look forward to helping you too.
Ignite your potential.
I believe change starts from the inside out. Someone could hand you the whole blueprint to follow in terms of doing work you love, but if your mindset isn't working for you, you won't follow the blueprint anyway. That's why so many of us continue to work in jobs we don't really like, or go in circles about which career path to follow, or never take steps to start that business we've been thinking about.
Before starting my coaching practice, I spent a decade in the corporate world. While I learned a lot about people, leadership, and career development, I wasn't fulfilled by my work. I wanted to do something more meaningful. For me, that meant making a positive impact on people's lives. But I kept myself stuck in a job I didn't love because my mindset wasn't working for me. I put too much pressure on myself to find my passion and to make sure the next move I made was the 'right' one.
It took me a long time to shift my own thinking patterns from ones that kept me stuck to ones that allowed me to explore, see the possibilities, and take action.
Being in a job you don't like, not knowing what career you should be doing, or knowing what you want but being too afraid to take the necessary steps to get there can be stressful and a little soul-destroying. It can impact your overall mental wellness and your relationships.
If you're at work but dreaming of escape - perhaps you're not passionate about the job you're doing, the corporate grind doesn't fit with your life circumstances anymore, your boss is horrible, you want to start your own business - or maybe life has taken you down an adventurous path of parenthood, relocation, or redundancy. We'll work together to clear the mental clutter so you can make the decisions you need to start moving towards a career you love.
I have a Masters of Professional Psychology, training through an ICF recognised coach training program, and have learned a lot over the years about the challenges people face when wanting to change careers or start a business through my own personal & professional experience and through the BOSS LADY community I created while in Shanghai.
I look forward to working with you so you can take action towards doing work you actually like. After all, it's your life and you're the boss!
