MARRIED TO YOUR CAREER AND DIVORCED FROM YOUR TRUE SELF?
Recover Your Mojo, Reclaim Your Sense of Self, And Fall In Love With Work - And Life - All Over Again
YOUR CAREER IS A WORK OF HEART
You’re a discerning professional who’s delivered consistent results and excellent service to all your stakeholders. You’re competent, accomplished and wholly committed to your success and your career.
But what happens when you’ve been so committed to your career that you’ve given too much of yourself to work and lost your Sense of Self and your mojo along the way?
You confuse having a career with having a life.
And you burn yourself out.
Yup, burnout is a term that has become synonymous with work and life in recent years, and it happens when passionate, committed people like you become disillusioned with a job or career from which you’ve previously derived much of your identity and meaning.
It hits hard, doesn’t it? Realising that you don’t enjoy your job as much any more, that you’ve been putting everyone else’s needs ahead of your own (while working yourself to the bone), sending emails while on holiday and neglecting your personal relationships?
That was ME.
At the time, I couldn’t see the damage I was doing, had little to no boundaries on how others used my time and found myself ‘trying to do it all’, all the time.
Sound familiar? Yeah, and it sucks, right?!
And if that resonates, you can probably also identify with the following:
- What used to feel inspiring now feels tedious
- You have a strong need to prove your worth
- You work harder and do everything at 150% effort, even if it doesn’t require it
- You ignore the signals from your body and push yourself ‘to do more’
- You begin to neglect your own needs and your health takes a back seat
- You seesaw between apathy & attentiveness
- You become confused about priorities when trying to please everyone
- You make everything about work and see hobbies as a ‘waste of time’
- You bury your feelings and turn to alcohol to help you relax
- You battle to sleep properly
- You are low on energy and lacklustre about improving your lifestyle
- You ‘armour up’ to deal with the toxicity around you until you begin to feel numb
- You become horribly cynical about life, work and relationships
As a result, you’re overwhelmed when faced with simple tasks, or making silly mistakes on things that normally aren’t tricky at all.
Exhaustion (whether physical, emotional or cognitive fatigue), cynicism and inefficiency are warning signs of issues including burnout, disruption and stress.
The most profound relationship you will ever have is the one with yourself.
So tell me, discerning professional, do you understand why you’re experiencing these issues? Have you been ignoring the signs and finding yourself prone to ongoing ‘little’ illnesses? Are you sabotaging yourself somehow?
Have you even considered why your productivity fluctuates so much and yet you can’t seem to put your finger on the source of it?
Wouldn’t you like to have more energy and feel that wonderful sense of being emerge so that you can laugh and feel contented again? Feel inspired, joyful and free?
It’s time to honour the powerful wisdom within you and create a new connection with yourself.

WORDS CREATE WORLDS
But it’s not just our words that create our worlds, it’s the FEELING behind them too.
And sometimes our feelings can sabotage what we really want.
Since 2020, we’ve had to confront a multitude of choices regarding our careers, priorities, health and lives.
Perhaps you’ve been thinking about a career change, revamping your work/ life plans or getting ready for that über exciting promotion?
Maybe you’re tired of feeling tired and just want your mojo back.
Whatever it is, you’re being called on to pivot your thinking, become waaaay more agile and still deliver the goods – in work and in life!
And while you don’t want to give up on yourself, you don’t quite know how to move forwards effectively now, right?
That’s because it’s time to ‘call time’ on all the old ways of thinking. It’s time to throw your arms open to a different way of being by exploring new ways of engaging with yourself and the world.
The old paradigms no longer serve you or your life.
It’s time to break up with burnout, stop sabotaging yourself, and start serving yourself instead!
Your stories manifest themselves in who you are and how you show up in the world.
Simply put, you ARE your choices.
I believe we all have free will and the right to make our own choices. And sometimes we can benefit from walking the journey alongside someone who’s already made some choices and has realised what did and didn’t work well.
With 20+ years of experience in corporate HR across a variety of industry sectors, I understand how necessary it is for business to engage solutions-focused, high-performing team members who are agile, diligent and competent.
I also appreciate what it’s like to perform at your peak, ‘give your all’ to your job, and secretly become quite lost while doing so.
I know because I was there.
I also know it doesn’t have to be like this, and how you can ease your way out of that burnt out, depleted feeling to become so much better and actually live joyfully again.
I can help you bring your mojo back to life!
