From reframing my childhood ‘shy’ ‘non-sporty’ labels to healing the scars of narcissistic abuse – I have done the unsquashing work!
I am an actor, dementia reminiscence facilitator and – funeral celebrant! Common link – communication.
I am a communication and confidence coach, author, podcast host and TEDx speaker (proud of that!).
I set up my coaching business later in life – after graduating with a BA degree in ‘Communication’ and just before reaching 60. Go me and my ‘growth mindset’!
Stepping into a ‘business’ world was scary – and involved facing my self doubt demons head on.
Despite being so confident on stages big and small – all of a suddent I felt like a useless non-person. I fell down all the traps that accompany a comfort zone shake up- Comparisonitis, people pleasing, taking too much ‘expert’ advice, feeling ‘all wrong’ at networking events because I was … my word… ‘self squashing’.
I worked through it.
I came out as ‘real me’ found well aligned communities in person and online. Brilliant connections – and friends.
Then I wrote a book and did a TEDx – as my unsquashed self. Every unsquashed move I took made me feel MORE unsquashed – more motivated – with more JOY, IMPACT and GROWTH (doing a ‘jig’).
I have helped a ton of fascinating people unsquash – and continue to share insights, reframes and practical tips.
I recently took up climbing – shrugging off the childhood label of ‘the non-sporty’ type!
