I really enjoy the work I do, but it hasn’t always been that way, which is why I created the Akeno Adventure; to support others on their adventure to reduced stress and increased career confidence and satisfaction.
I have worked in jobs and situations that didn’t make me happy. I’d have the feeling of dread on a Sunday evening, thinking and worrying about the working week ahead. I worked alongside peers paid much more than me, but I was held back by a lack of confidence of what to do about it. And when I did secure a new role and a better way of working, my fears would tell me that I wasn’t good enough to be there; I couldn’t win!
Identifying and developing new techniques, to change my mindset and ways of working, was life-changing. A solid foundation of self-worth underpins it all. This, coupled with practical actions, has enabled me to develop a career that genuinely makes me happy.
I successfully completed the Self-Worth Academy’s coaching programme, and became a Certified Associate in 2019. My approach with clients is a blend of coaching, mentoring and practical guidance, to unlock the potential for a life, career or business venture that makes them truly happy.
Outside of work, I value and embrace my downtime. I enjoy travelling with my husband, and love everything about cars, motorbikes, and anything else with an engine! In fact, I’m known as a bit of a dare-devil! From cliff diving in Jamaica to parachuting over the British countryside, and even partaking in supercar track days, I enjoy activities that are full of adrenaline. I’m also a bookworm, and I love nothing more than getting lost in a good book whilst sitting in the sunshine!
In fact, the need for a work/life balance was a key reason why I transitioned my career and ways of working. It worked for me, and it could work for you too. I promise!
