WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
"I've just finished my last coaching call with Emma (sob). I wanted to write to anyone who's thinking about hiring Emma to tell you what I have achieved in only 12 weeks:
Discovered my dream business (I already had a business but a few weeks into our coaching, I realised I wasn’t in alignment with it, so I set up a brand new business!!).
Created my brand. Emma helped me understand that my business should be about me and we worked together to revamp my branding (which I am totally in love with).
Increased my confidence, especially around my blocks on social media and putting myself out there.
Released mindset blocks that were deep-seated to push me through to my next level.
I discovered my ideal/dream client and I understand her inside out.
I built my website from scratch under Emma’s guidance and expertise which is now live (and beautiful if I do say so myself!).
I created a 6 week coaching programme for my ideal client
Built a sales funnel with a fantastic freebie to get people interested in working with me (neither of which I had ever had any experience in creating before).
Got new PAYING clients.
Planned out social media content and understand how to engage with my audience, what they want to see from me and clever ways on how to create new content.
Helped me change my mindset. The guidance and information that Emma has provided on mindset is key to helping me come as far as I have in only 12 weeks.
There are so many other things I could list! Working with Emma has set me on a path that I am ridiculously excited about and I feel I have the foundations set to keep pushing myself to the next level. I feel like a whole new me and I can’t wait to work with Emma again in the future.
If you are feeling lost in your business and are struggling to push to your next level, book a discovery call with Emma!
Thanks Emma. I am so pleased I listened to my intuition and hired you as my coach. It has seriously transformed my life and I can't wait to work with you again. You have been an inspiration and my dream coach."
"I just had my 'Ideal Client Clarity Call' with Emma. Wow. I cannot fully express how great she is, how powerful it was & how much of an impact it's had on me & my business. I left the call ridiculously clear on who my ideal client is, how they're feeling and able to communicate how I can help them and what they'll get out of working with me. I want others to feel the clarity I have from that call. Thank you, Emma."
"From just 4 sessions with Emma, I had complete clarity on my ideal client, had rewritten most of my sales pages on my website, done my first live Facebook video, created a series of video challenges for my audience, revised my pricing and had 3 new client bookings. Emma knows her stuff!"
I signed up to work with Emma because I'd been a VA for a while and was not enjoying myself. I’d set up my business so that I could be at home for my little boy to take him and pick him up from school etc., but prior to having him, I'd been a business adviser for many years and I was hankering to go back to that sort of work. I didn't really know how - and so I decided to work with Emma to change my business.
After 12 weeks working with Emma, I now have a BRAND new business. I'm set up as a business coach and I'm out there, attracting clients as a business coach. I am clear on my ideal client, I designed a whole new coaching programme, created a new website, new branding and new business cards.
Emma puts SO much into our sessions and went above and beyond including helping me build a new website and writing the copy. I could not have asked for more. Each session we always covered whatever I wanted to work on. I felt so good after each coaching session - Emma really has a way of making you feel as though you could conquer the world!
The biggest change I have witnessed in myself is confidence. Before working with Emma, I really doubted my abilities - Emma did a lot of work with me to make me realise that I really have the qualifications and experience to do this. My husband says I'm now more confident when I talk about my business - and I actually talk about my new coaching business with passion - which I never did about my VA business!
I'd like to say a big thank you to Emma - for going above and beyond - for really pushing me, for believing in me and for generally being fabulous. I thoroughly enjoyed my coaching experience with you. I don’t hesitate to tell my friends about you and I hope we can work together again!
"Hiring Emma was the best decision I ever made, personally and for my business. I’m now in the middle of rebranding my business, I’m getting new clients, am creating entirely new offerings, for an entirely new market, and I’m EXCITED!
All that passion for my business that had vanished has come flooding back. I can’t wait to start work every day and it’s all thanks to Emma’s knowledge, kindness and incredibly intuitive guidance.
I met Emma when we both took the same image consulting course back in 2008 - and I’d watched her grow her styling business, and then successfully (and, it seemed, seamlessly) grow and develop this into a Coaching business. I knew she would be a good fit for me and my business, not only because of her styling background and her wealth of knowledge, but I’d downloaded and used some of the free resources on her site and had joined her Facebook group and was so impressed at how she always delivered above and beyond my expectations.
I reached out to Emma because I had reached a stage in my business where I felt disconnected from it. I had lost my passion for it and felt like I was just going through the motions. I’d been running it for 10 years and in that time, I move abroad twice, relocating 3 times. Throughout this I continued to work with my clients in the UK while trying to establish myself in my new locations. The methods I used to successfully set up my business 10 years ago, were no longer effective and I, personally had changed a ton too. I felt lost and desperately wanted to find that passion that I had so much of for my business 5 years ago but didn’t know where to begin. Emma guided me through the ‘road blocks’ and helped me to clarify, visualize and then create the business I wanted. I would not hesitate to recommend Emma, in fact, I have already been doing so!"
“Before I hired Emma, I was trying to please and market to everyone and it was overwhelming. I signed up for her 'Ideal Client Clarity Call' to discover my Ideal Client. It included a 2 hour call and a workbook. The workbook alone is worth the price! On the call she listens and really holds you to account and hears things you’ve said that you aren’t even aware of. She hones you in and pulls you back into a place where you get meaning and clarity. I now have absolute clarity on who my Ideal Client is and that's why I think every entrepreneur needs an Emma Ward in their life.”
"Working with Emma was such an invaluable experience! I found Emma on Instagram and was instantly intrigued due to her business coaching AND experience as a personal stylist. Fast forward a couple months later, I was in desperate need of a business coach to help me kick-start my business. I instantly knew who I needed to contact!
Throughout our entire time together, Emma was my biggest supporter and mentor who guided me in rebranding my business to something I truly wanted, not what others suggested I do. She definitely went above and beyond in my expectations as a business coach! Helping me with nitty gritty details in my website, editing my sales page copy to giving me amazing packaging and opt-in ideas. She assisted and collaborated with me throughout the entire process. If I got stuck, she was always there to offer a brilliant idea or solution.
I'm now a few days away from officially launching my rebrand and I couldn't be more excited! Emma gave me the foundation that I so desperately needed and I'm now so grateful for having!"
"Emma is an awesome business coach! Brimful of ideas, knowledge, techniques and a “Can Do It” attitude she brings a freshness and an energy to business creating that is both inspiring and practical. If it’s possible, then with Emma there to support you it will happen!"
ANNIE SORRELL, COACH & COUNSELLOR
"When I first contacted Emma I was frozen with fear. I knew I wanted to start recording my first album but every step seemed so daunting. I was very indecisive and struggled to figure out my next move.
From day one of our coaching, my energy shifted completely. The moment I got off our first call, I felt so motivated. I sat down at the guitar and wrote a new song for the first time in weeks. I found that every call following was a surge of inspiration and helped me uncover bits of myself I had been shielding from failure - and GREAT opportunity. Emma is an expert at creating a safe place to share. She finds that insecure spot in your mind and coaxes it out of its scared little shell so you can overcome it.
Thank you for the energy you pour into your clients. Believe me, it matters more than you think! I felt truly embraced and wish I could have a call with you every week! The second I can start back, I will! You are truly amazing!"
"When I first contacted Emma, I was feeling stuck in my business. I felt very overwhelmed with trying to get more clients and didn't know what to do next.
I was frustrated seeing friends with their small businesses having more clients and more motivation than me. I was struggling with social media and knowing how to promote myself. The day I contacted Emma, I felt in a hopeless rut.
From the first session, I felt really positive and excited to finally get some help. Emma helped me gain clarity on my ideal clients. She then offered ideas and advice on how and where to target them. She suggested different ways to promote myself locally and online, things I had never thought of. Her tips on what to say to engage my ideal clients have really helped me understand the importance of the words I use to ensure people understand the value of what I do.
After just 3 weeks, I have much more clarity and my mindset has definitely shifted. The change I've noticed most is that I am now really motivated and open to ideas. I gained focus and clarity on what I need to do next and I now feel excited to take the action steps to move forward. I feel more confident too - I have already approached potential clients, shops and organisations to promote my business.
If I were to describe my coaching experience in 3 words, they would be: Clarity. Motivating. Uplifting.
Thank you, Emma, for such fantastic support and guidance. "
"As a growing business, I have used Emma's coaching services to help me get a clear vision of what the next 12 months will look like for me. A year into trading, my business is going from strength to strength and I now want to take it in a new direction which can be overwhelming at times. Being self-employed is great in that you don't have a manager breathing down your neck, but this sometimes means you set yourself much more 'relaxed' goals and time scales. My first 2 hour coaching session was fantastic. So motivating and encouraging. Emma asked me questions I hadn't even considered, leaving me at times speechless. Questions such as "Why leave it 5 months?" The answer is " don't know, there is no reason to wait". Emma made me realise that we set our own boundaries and yes, some obstacles are unavoidable but some are purely just a product of our own self limits. I feel focussed and energised and confident that I can now achieve everything I want THIS year. Emma set me personal goals which are realistic but that commit me to deadlines rather than plodding along. On a personal note, Emma is really down to earth, very easy to get on with and we clicked immediately. Thanks so much, I will definitely keep in touch!!! Love, Joy x"
"AMAZING!!!! How skeptical have I been about what can be accomplished in a 45 minutes coaching session??? Not any more!! What Emma and I accomplished today saved me at least two weeks of really hard soul searching work in my business. And I'm 100% convinced that it’s higher quality work than what I would have accomplished alone! Confidence shot? Yup, I would say so!!
It was awesome to have Emma "in my corner"/"on my team"...However you want to say it. Emma helped me gain clarity and confidence aside from being a great idea generator and sounding board. Oh goodness! I can't wait to work with you again!!!"
"Thanks Emma for a wonderful and inspiring coaching call!!! I was a skeptic about coaches; however, from our short time together I now completely understand your incredible value. After just 30 minutes you managed to get me to articulate my why and my passions in a clear and productive way as well as making me feel reassured about the route I was embarking on. Since then I have binge listened to your Confidence is the New Black series and all your videos. I can't get enough and am always excited to receive your latest instalment. xx"
"I had an hour coaching call with Emma, yesterday. AMAZING!!!! What fantastic positive energy she has! From the scrambled mess in my mind she succeeded in unravelling threads of direction I need to take in order to be far more successful. THANK YOU EMMA and I highly recommend that you let her into your life! Next - prepare the path to have Emma help me make the next huge step in my life. (And I am particularly independent, so this is testimony to how GOOD she is!)."
"After suffering with depression & anxiety and having to give up my full-time medical secretary job, retraining as a therapist, I needed to gain confidence that I could stop worrying about being ill if I did too much. My fear was holding me back in so many aspects of my life. I knew this was understandable after having been so unwell; however, something needed to change. After being given C.B.T. sessions on the NHS, I decided that I needed something that I could really identify with, leading to gaining confidence in myself and increasing my business. After speaking to Emma I really liked her approach and felt that I could work with her.
I had never hired a coach before so I felt slightly apprehensive (although excited) to begin with. I was therefore very pleasantly surprised by not only how much I got from just the first session, but I felt as if there was a real connection with Emma; like she really got me. There was a great understanding of how I felt and I was very excited about the “homework” between session.
My friends and family have all noticed a change in me: they are very pleased to see my confidence has grown. They have mentioned that I look so much better too!
The biggest change I’ve witnessed in myself is how much confidence I have gained in all aspects of my life: with my therapy work, family & friends. I have taken control of my life: promoting my business; buying my dream car; looking after my Granddaughter; arranging a party; planning and conducting a launch evening for business; return to my love of ballroom dancing and planning a 3 week holiday to the USA. I am enjoying life again and finding that anything is possible.
I know who my Ideal Clients are and how to market to them. I'm sending out regular newsletters; running monthly promotional events and group sessions. I've had a photo-shoot and created my beautiful website from scratch. I now have consistent clients each week and new clients are finding me!
If I were to describe the coaching experience in 3 words, they would be: A life-changing experience. I'd recommend this coaching to anyone who is willing to put the effort in, the rewards are amazing.”
"When I first started coaching with Emma we were struggling financially and work in my therapy business was down. I kept trying to stay positive but underlying negativity was never far from the surface. I wanted some good advice, personal development coaching and goal setting. I trusted Emma and immediately felt comfortable and that I could reveal anything about myself to her and still be safe. Our first few sessions highlighted my desire to please and fix everybody, and the biggest shift came for me in seeing myself as deserving. I learned that as long as I continued to put myself last and be in fear taking money from people, I can never fulfil my purpose.
Emma has helped me get my enthusiasm for life back. I have increased my clients, redefined my message and resurrected my writing. I am far more disciplined and organised. I am earning more, but finding more time for me, my family, and long term goals. I feel powerful, vibrant, and full of life in a way I haven’t felt for a long time. I now know not only where I am going, but also how to get there. I have a belief in myself that had been missing for a very long time.
Thank you so much Emma for opening my eyes. I now see all the blocks I have been putting in my way and now I can see through them I feel indestructible! I really did get what you claimed: Connection, Clarity and Confidence.”

MINDSET COURSES FEEDBACK
MINDSET COURSES FEEDBACK
"I loved doing your Money Mindset course! Not only did it turn around my money story (I signed up new clients and money I’d forgotten I was owed starting returning to me) but it also allowed me to change my self-talk on my body image issues. This led me to talking to a room of women about body confidence!!! Emma’s style of coaching is engaging, effective and welcoming. So sign up!"
"I wanted to share the results I’ve had since doing your Vision Board course:
I put a photo of brand I wanted to do a photoshoot for and a top male model and I got the shoot and the models and the brand!!
I put a photo of the office I wanted to work at and got the job in a WEEK!
A photographer I’ve wanted to work with for over two years hired me for TWO shoots.
I put an image of a summer house to use as my office to see clients and I just bought it.
That’s all manifested in the three months since doing your Vision Board Mastery course so thank you!"
“In three words, Emma's Money Mindset course: Changed My Life. Not an exaggeration, it was only DURING and AFTER doing this mindset course that I manifested a significant amount of money to use as a house deposit, got clear on my goals and focus, and to this day, my whole outlook on money has changed. Book yourself on this course you will not regret it for one second.
If you want to improve your relationship with money then what the hell are you waiting for!? Sign up for this course."
At the time of starting Emma's Money Mindset course my business wasn’t moving or shaking and I barely made enough each month to cover my outgoings. Since this course (in July 2017) - I had a mega busy August and then doubled my usual turnover in September AND October! It’s a great course too - really interactive and fun - I met some lovely ladies along the way. Thank you Emma. You asked us all to borrow your belief that this works and it truly does!”
"Emma's Money Mindset course was worth every penny. I learned not to hold myself back in my business. I gained unexpected money back from my water bill, and even though I'm generally positive, I feel on top of the world. And I got my kids joining in too.
I've even been offered a job which is perfect as I build my new business. I didn't even apply as I was recommend by someone else. I definitely believe it's because I am completing the daily mindset exercises.
If you’re thinking of signing up, definitely go for it. It will make you realise you can achieve anything you want. I loved every minute of it and I’m sad it's over.
Emma - your enthusiasm was infectious and the ladies support for each other was fantastic. Thank you for this amazing opportunity! xx"
“I would have paid double for Emma's Money Mindset course. You get so much guidance and input from Emma. My gains from the course were: a vast improvement in my mindset; feeling better about myself; a new direction for my business; greater creativity and allowing myself to believe it is okay to want more. I manifested £3600 of unexpected money during the course. If you are thinking about taking this course, just do it! It is well worth the investment”
CONFIDENCE COACHING CLIENTS
CONFIDENCE COACHING CLIENTS
"From an early age I struggled in controlling my emotions. When I was a teenager I was put on anti depressants which only caused me to have no emotion and feeling. When I came off I got told to go to counselling – I went to 3! None of them could help me. I felt alone and always on the edge of a volcano about to abrupt at any time and no one could help.
I then heard about Emma from a friend and I thought: well there's no harm in trying.
In my first session I realised Emma was different, she uses visual, verbal and physical techniques to help me understand who I am, and explains everything clearly. She gives me homework, activities and strategies to help in my daily life.
I have been with Emma for a few months and I have never felt better. I feel happy in myself and the world, I’m not scared or constantly thinking I’m going to get angry today. I’m not 100 % but who is!
We recently have also been working on reaching my dream job! We are looking to the future. I’m realising your dream job is not a dream it can be a reality.
Emma is a lovely lady she is a true professional who listens, understands and makes me feel supported and respected. She is determined in helping in all areas of my life. I’m so pleased that I decided to give her a go, I can’t praise her enough.”
"When I first contacted Emma, my life was a constant struggle. My self-esteem was at rock bottom along with my confidence and I felt too embarrassed to share my concerns with friends.
I had no goals in my work or home life, other than to survive each day. I longed for a partner but couldn’t imagine anyone wanting to join my world of turmoil, so wasn’t focussed on looking.
After our initial call, I just knew Emma would be amazing and help fight my corner and get me out of the rut I was in.
But by the end of the first session, I completely trusted Emma.
Through the weeks, (and some tears), she gently guided me down the right path, she lifted my confidence enough to get me through each day and face the challenges head on while still walking alongside me all the way. Her words of love and encouragement gave me the strength to fight my battles, all be in small ones to start with.
After 12 weeks:
I have changed significantly since meeting Emma, I am far more confident and comfortable in my skin. My friends and colleagues often comment on how confident I am and that I would never have been so bold before meeting Emma! They like the new me!
The biggest change I initially noticed was having the confidence to go on a weekend away to New York on my own (after just our first session!). Organising the trip from start to finish and going completely out of my comfort zone. I went sightseeing on my own around Central Park and even went to the top of the Empire State Building despite having an abject fear of heights! I ate dinner on my own in restaurants and loved every minute. For the first time in my life I felt I deserved to be there, enjoying my own company, something I never thought would happen.
There have been some hugely tangible results too – I have a great relationship with my children and...
I gained sufficient confidence to get back out on the dating websites. I met the man of my dreams and he proposed to me on New Year’s Eve and I said yes!!!
LIFE IS WONDERFUL. I AM A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WOMAN AND I’M LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF MY NEW WORLD.
If I had to describe my coaching experience with Emma, it would be: THE BEST THING EVER.
Emma is a LIFE CHANGER EMMA."
"I wanted to share my experience of working with Emma Ward with you all. Hiring a coach is an investment and it's important to feel you are making the right decision!
I have worked with Emma over the past couple of years (14 sessions in total), firstly looking at a career change which turned into so much more - thanks to Emma I regained my confidence and self belief as well as starting my self development journey - and more recently to work through doubts and anxieties.
Emma is an amazing, intuitive coach who puts her heart and soul into giving you what you need. She has a gift for understanding where you are coming from and uses a range of techniques and questions to help you to help yourself.
I would not be where I am now if I had not met a Emma as she helped me uncover the real me that I had forgotten and encouraged me to go for it in so many aspects of my life.
Emma offers a unique brand of coaching that blends her personal experience with her training and most of all with her energy and passion for serving others. If you are thinking if working with her, my advice is go for it!"
"Emma is relatable, friendly, knowledgeable, and an inspiration all at the same time. She will open your mind and uncover things in your soul you had no idea were there while guiding you closer and closer to your best self. Case in point, she has altered my mindset about deep-rooted beliefs in just a short amount of time. Emma is a wealth of knowledge but she breaks down each nugget of wisdom so it is understandable and can then be put to use. She is nothing short of a wonderful coach who will support you in the pursuit of your dreams."
"I had a consultation with Emma this morning! To say it was helpful is an understatement! To be able to talk to someone who totally understands what you are saying and can offer you solutions was unbelievable!
Emma has changed the way I think about myself and about others, in one session! I actually felt a weight lifted from my chest while we were talking! Emma made me feel totally at ease during the consultation and was so understanding, kind and passionate about what she was talking about!
Thank you Emma x"
"I used to lack confidence and self-belief. Not that long ago, I was in a job that sapped the life and energy out of me and I felt worthless, I most definitely lived to work.
I suffered from panic attacks and it felt like a never-ending black hole. I didn’t want to see my friends as I felt like I had nothing positive to contribute, my spare time was spent worrying about work, when my mum asked me where her daughter had gone, I knew I needed help – that’s when I turned to Emma Ward.
Emma knew I was so unkind to myself and taught me how to love me again. She gave me the confidence to believe that I would find a new job, that I was a good person, that I could be confident again and so it began, my journey to clarity and self-belief: from meditation to tapping to just talking, Emma was with me every step of the way, she made me feel like I could get out: that I could be Lisa again.
As my confidence grew I was head-hunted for a dream role. At the time, my self-doubt kicked in, I didn’t think I could do it even though I wanted to get out so badly, I couldn’t take the bad atmosphere any longer.
I was offered the job. Although I was over the moon, my self-doubt again kicked in again and even worse the fear of handing in my notice. Emma was one of the first people I told when I got the offer, she knew how badly I wanted it and was over the moon.
I have now been in my role for 1 year, I am a top performer in my team and I was awarded a 'Passionate in Your Role' award at our yearly awards last week, if someone had told me this would have been my life 2 years ago – I would have laughed at them. Positive thinking, clarity, self-belief and the courage to follow your dreams really will get you to where you want to be. I now take away from my past how strong I was when I never believed it possible, how brave I was to stand up and make a change. I could never have done this alone, without Emma Ward I would probably still be sat living to work instead of where I am now – loving my life! Thank you Emma!!"
“The sessions I had with Emma were so much more than I hoped for. I came to Emma having given up smoking, gained a stone, started a new business and lost my zest for life. Everything felt very flat and grey. I have always been very self-critical and felt that tackling that would be a good place to start. From the start Emma seemed to know, intuitively, where to focus our sessions and I trusted her completely. Although dealing with highly emotional subjects, the sessions were fun and proactive. I feel as if some major shifts have occurred after just 6 weeks of seeing her and I feel as if I have found my mojo again! (not to mention a new career!) I cannot recommend her highly enough.
I am off to a “Towie” party tonight and am wearing a dress completely out of my comfort zone (that I would NEVER have worn before I met Emma!) And my toenails are orange!! I plan to have fun!”
"After a tough year at work, and a long period of time where my confidence and self belief had been chipped away, I was at an all time low.
There was a constant 'noise' and negative dialogue going on inside my head, and the feelings of fear and dread I had daily were crippling me in all areas of my life and creating a cycle of unhappiness.
I felt unworthy of so many things from my job to relationships, I was telling myself I wasn't making good decisions, that I wasn't good enough, that I was letting people down, that I was a fraud.
I felt desperately unhappy with how life was unfolding yet paralysed in knowing how to get myself out of the cycle. I felt like a swan who appeared to be gliding on the surface but was actually frantically swimming under water. When Emma told me about her confidence coaching programme I knew it was something that I needed to do.
Emma’s instinct, intuition and way with people meant that she offered me her skills in confidence coaching at exactly the time I needed them most. Working with Emma felt so empowering.
Emma is an inspiring, warm, dedicated, passionate, professional and caring coach. She took me on an eye-opening and inspirational journey to reconnect with myself.
I had absolute trust and confidence in her knowledge, and the guidance and support she offered me was phenomenal. Her coaching helped me identify and tackle so many things that I was dealing with at a subconscious level, so that I had a better awareness of them and the tools to de-construct them. I feel like I have been given the means to make changes in my life and deal with negative thoughts and anxieties.
To look back at the person I was at our first session is honesty shocking and I am full of gratitude for the skills she has taught me to love myself, trust myself and feel proud of myself.
Without even realising, my confidence, in both my personal life and work life, developed and I am feeling much happier. With every week and every exercise that she took me through, a sliver of the real ‘me’ emerged from shadows and I now have tools to use every day, which I frequently do, to keep me and my energy in a forward, positive direction.
I now appreciate myself and acknowledge that there are many things that I can look forward to in life. I cannot thank you enough, Emma!"
"Before signing up to Emma’s 3 month’s coaching programme, I was struggling with low self-esteem and lacked confidence. I wanted to find a balance in my life where I wasn’t constantly questioning myself and comparing myself to other people around me. I wanted to be confident with decisions that I made and to be in control of my life.
I had used a counsellor before but not a coach. I thought it would be a painful experience so I was surprised that I didn’t come away from the sessions feeling drained. Instead, I felt peaceful and empowered that the route to change was in my hands.
After the first session with Emma, I was confident that I wouldn’t be cast adrift to deal with any demons alone. Emma put a safety net in place that I trusted. It was clear that we would work at a pace that suited me and on issues that I wanted to address. I would be the one that would be making the changes using strategies that she offered. I also appreciated how Emma listened and accommodated my feelings, understanding why I might not want to go down a particular road.
I now feel like a ‘new me’. I’ve changed. I’m now more confident about decisions that I make. I’m a stronger person in my relationship with my husband. I don’t walk around ‘beating’ myself up any more. I’m more at peace with myself now.
If me inner voice does start to nag at me, I now have strategies to switch it off. I do things my way and I’m happy with that. I have more time to myself and can find more time to relax. I know that it’s OK to stop. When dealing with I now look at the whole picture and tackle things in short bursts rather than feeling defeated before I’ve even started.
Thank you, Emma! I’ve turned around and I do feel in control of my life but most importantly I have a bank of strategies that I can fall back on if I need to. I do things because I want to now not because I think I ought to. I am me and that is good. I don’t need to be anyone else because they are not me and I don’t need to be like them. If I’m a little quirky then that’s something to celebrate – my daughters celebrate the fact that I’m slightly off-centre and that makes me feel good."
