I understand where you’re at because I’ve been somewhere similar. I know what it’s like to be struggling and lacking self-confidence. Married at 19, I soon discovered not all relationships are sweetness and light. After several years of being criticised, belittled and put down, I had no self-esteem and no self-confidence. I found myself at the age of 29 divorced, living in a tiny flat with 3 young children. I had flu, the children had chicken pox, I had no money for the electricity meter, and no food in the cupboard. I had hit rock bottom. That’s when I made a decision to change everything. I refused to suffer and live that way any longer. Life looked bleak but I got through that period and out the other side. I found a job and reconnected with a wonderful man I’d known before my marriage. I was able to rebuild my self-esteem and rebuild my life. I now live a life I love in a gorgeous home on the Isle of Wight with my soul mate. Life is good. And what I’ve learned through all my life experiences makes me a better coach. I can empathise with my clients and use my history to help others. Maggie is one of the best coaches in the world, and is one of the top 10% of coaches in the UK.
