Negative patterns were holding me back – finding a life coach gave me the awareness and strategies to live the life I wanted.
I believe that life coaching can help you discover the life you want to lead and develop the strategies to achieve it.
Everyone has a life script and mine has been a roller coaster of episodes full of action, romance, adventure, comedy and DRAMA. I have experienced fame, motherhood, difficult relationships, loss and grief with all the highs and lows that come with any life story.
I grew up in Jordan as an only child with an Arab father and British mother before training as an actress in England and married soon after graduating from drama school. Experiencing contrasting cultures from an early age and growing up with the belief that we must put everyone else’s needs before our own, lead to a pattern of unconsciously people-pleasing that left me depleted and in need of change.
If you do not take control over your time and your life, other people will gobble it up.
It was a struggle finding my way after returning to Jordan. Eventually though, I succeeded in making a name for myself in the entertainment industry as a TV presenter, singer and actress in Lebanon, Egypt and Dubai.
Nine years later, I became a mother to my two beautiful children. The pressure of performing in front of live audiences and facing rejections from casting directors paled in comparison to the demands of parenthood. Juggling both worlds felt impossible and staying at home had it’s own set of pressures.
So many other mothers I knew were facing similar challenges; trying to be “super mums” by balancing family, children, relationships, run a household and work.
This was when I began my own personal journey of self-discovery. I learned and practiced Mindfulness, Reiki, Transcendental Meditation and even earned a black belt in Taekwondo! However, what helped me the most was finding a coach and discovering the negative patterns that were holding me back from living the life I wanted. I now have lifelong practical tools and coping strategies to work through difficulties with awareness.
Life coaching changed the shape of my life, and I believe it can change yours.
