There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in your heart.
– Chandogya Upanishad
Hi there, I’m Lucy, coach & mentor, certified Advanced Clinical NLP Practitioner, Life Coach and Advanced Soul Plan Practitioner.
I’m on a mission to help you recover your connection to the part of you that knows; that version of you that radiates bliss by being in alignment with your deepest desires and talents, living life the way you’ve always wanted.
I believe self-compassion, generosity and the ability to give and receive love is where true happiness flourishes.
I serve my clients with practical tools to align their innate talents with their life and career goals through a combination of The Radiant You Programme, The Wholeness Project and Soul Plan Life Alignment Analysis sessions.
I am a registered member of the Life Coach Directory. Click here for more information.
Prior to starting my own business, I worked in television broadcasting in London, with some of the top blue-chip channel brands in the UK and International markets.
It was here where I learned the value of building relationships and cultivating deep connection through authentic communication and powerful storytelling.
Prior to that I worked as an actress for a theatre company based in South Africa where I learned the vital importance of using visualization, breath-work and cultivating a healthy relationship with the mind for total body, mind and spirit well-being.
My self-recovery journey began in earnest back in 2011, when I was diagnosed with skin cancer.
Around the same time, my confidence crumbled overnight and I felt inadequate and overwhelmed in a corporate life that I had so carefully constructed to please everyone but myself.
I suffered from crippling anxiety and chronic low self-esteem and I was running on empty, feeling completely ‘beside myself’ and out of alignment physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Through a combination of gentle meditation practice, a healthy dose of self-compassion and an exciting adventure into what it felt like to feel whole and complete again, I learned about being a Highly Sensitive Person and how I could celebrate my sensitivity as a gift and use it in a way that would make a positive difference to the world.
I began mending my life, re-building my confidence with compassion and my physical, emotional and spiritual well-being with practical, down-to-earth spirituality that serves me still today.
My thirst for self-knowledge took me to study the power of the mind-body-spirit connection and the fascinating dance of human behaviour. I fully immersed myself into the pursuit of truth, alignment and divine connection through this process of self-recovery.
How I find my bliss:
A cup of tea early in the morning, before everyone else is awake; listening to morning birdsong; quiet time to regenerate, preferably with noise-cancelling headphones included; honouring cycles and seasons in nature and recognising how they are reflected in my own life; spending time with animals; laughing with my husband; walking on the beach; hiking mountain trails; hugging trees; spending time with my cat; planting sweet peas and roses in my garden and witnessing them as they flourish; Scuba Diving; dancing; creating vision boards (I’m addicted to Pinterest); singing; eating sticky toffee pudding with lots of custard; having a strong cup of coffee and paging through a magazine; falling in love with the characters in a really good book; stretching; cooking a delicious meal from scratch; drawing a ritual Epsom salt bath by candlelight; getting into bed and feeling fresh, clean linen on my skin; glorious sleep.
I live in a leafy corner of Uxbridge, North-West of London, with my husband and my cat.
