Empowerment is to live a life in alignment with your most authentic self
Empowerment to me is feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin. It's embracing your shadows and doing the inner work to become self aware. It's being authentic and true to yourself and what you believe. It's having the ability to listen to your body and to do what makes your soul sing!
Before I stepped into my empowerment I was scared of my own ability - I was great at playing small and just stumbling through life. It wasn't until I worked with an empowerment coach that I found the tenacity to chase my dreams - I always had the ability I just didn't have the belief. It has become so important to me help women have the chance to live a life they love and to fulfil their dreams. It is so easy to get lost in all of the labels society gives us that often they get pushed aside.
Through my social media presence I have always been quite open about my background / recovery from anxiety and eating disorders which has encouraged women to approach me for advice. I've been helping assist at women's retreats for the last 18 months and have worked 1:1 with women. One thing that I do in my work is listen. I mean truly listen. I create a safe space for women to speak freely and without judgement. Often just being able to voice your raw emotions can unlock the key to your empowerment.
