The closer you come to knowing that you alone create the world of your experience, the more vital it becomes for you to discover just who is doing the creating.
Eric Micha’el Leventhal
While friends and clients have called me ‘the enabler’ or ‘the one with the gift’, I’m really just like you the only difference perhaps is that I’ve discovered the therapies that work for me. What I will credit myself with, however, is an unwavering determination to stay afloat, despite almost sinking several times in my youth when things were at their darkest.
In the late 1990s, I left the country side of Italy for the UK with a certificate in cooking, a bag full of dreams, the strength and courage of youth (I was 18) and just £100 in my wallet. I had no job to go to and I barely spoke any English but I was determined to make it happen, I wanted to stick it up to those years of bullying! I wanted to succeed at anything and everything.
However, life, as you know, rarely gives us what we want. What it does give us is what we need and it is up to us to make lemonade with those lemons to learn the lessons so we can move on and be free to get what we want for ourselves.
It was a hard road because I wasn’t prepared to ask for help until I crashed.
A nervous breakdown, twice being homeless, a diagnosis of manic depression and a near bankruptcy made me evaluate my life as a whole. However, it wasn’t until a failed and abusive relationship that I started seeking proper help.
That was the first step the biggest and most difficult decision. It would have been much easier to just continue with what I knew at that moment, sometimes the future was too terrifying to even consider.
But I felt a need, a strong urge to rediscover my true self, who I was and why things had happened. I learned to take personal responsibility and changed my future, one book, one course, one therapy session at a time.
I have had the pleasure of meeting and learning from many amazing teachers over the last 20 years, including Dr John F. Demartini, as featured in The Secret, and Dr David Hamilton, (who featured one of my visualisations in his 2008 book ‘How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body’). I have been fortunate to have trained in several evidence-based hypnosis techniques. I’ll be forever grateful for all of my teacher’s’ wisdom and support, but special thanks go to Inbaal, who introduced me to meditation and visualisation back in 1999, she quite literally put my foot on this path.
While all of this was going on, I had a successful 15-years career in corporate finance, credit risk and treasury with companies such as Hitachi, Harley Davidson, Johnson & Johnson and GSK. Despite the stressful times they brought, these companies have essentially paid for my extensive training!
“Before I could help others, I helped myself. Step by step I found that inner peace I was looking for over 20 years ago and there is no better time than now to share the wisdom obtained from the realization that we are unlimited beings, with a universe of possibilities laid in front of us”
I’m an avid book worm, I love Qigong and I’m mum to a beautiful boy born in 2017.
