Self-Belief, Self-Confidence – and no more Self Squashing!

It isn’t just you who suffers seemingly stupid spirals of self-doubt!

That smile took decades to come from a calm concordant place.

From reframing my childhood ‘shy’ label to healing the scars of narcissistic abuse – I have done the work!

I am an actor, reminiscence facilitator and funeral celebrant – as well as a communication coach, author and TEDx speaker (proud of that!).

So – you wonderful slightly over-thinking sometimes people-pleasing people – from service giving freelancers and solo business owners to career changers and self developement seekers – do you need to:-

  • exit your existential loop of ‘who am I – What do I do’?
  • up your personal impact in meetings?
  • finally face your public speaking fears
  • feel prepared for that interview?

Fancy calling out the FIBs (Fears, Illusions and Baggage) that hold you back? I’m your guide 🙂

Self Squashing is my positive variant of impostor syndrome – tried and tested! I approach all of this in a forensic versus fluffy way that will fuel your motivation, goal reaching and joy!

Showing up to share with a talk about just that! ‘Beware the Self Squashing Prophecy’ – watch!
