Following the death of my mother at a young age, I went through years of self-harming – eating disorders, addictions to drinking, drugs, TV, food and other things, lots of self-loathing, being broke and in debt, and spiralling in and out of depression. I always put on a brave face and tried to get through it. I hated myself and my life and didn’t know what the point of it all was. This was my existence.
A few years ago something inside me clicked – I was sick and tired of being this way and doubly motivated by external events I HAD to change my life, so I did. Slowly, little by little, I began to turn things around, with support from others. I started to look after myself, try and show myself I actually did care and maybe, just maybe, life could get better.
It did. I found new tools and ways to help me learn to love myself, I committed to myself each and every day, and life just keeps on getting better. Now I am sharing this story.
It includes an honest, vulnerable and deeply personal account of my journey and what I went through. Then there is a comprehensive guide with 52 practical self-care tips, actions and inspiration as well as real life examples of how I used these things to help me heal, which can be used like a pick'n'mix, one a week, an oracle deck or however you choose.
You can buy a copy of the book on Amazon or anywhere else you buy books.

With almost 20 years of varied experience working in and with businesses ranging from global corporations and brands to soulpreneurs and hospitality entrepreneurs. Working full time, part time and freelance in many different roles from PR and marketing to HR, business operations and as a PA/VA. I have learned that whilst taking action and showing up consistently as well as having systems and processes in place for a business is essential, having the inner energetics aligned is equally important, particularly for empaths. I aim to address some of these things in my latest book, looking at what might come up on an inner or energetic level whilst on the entrepreneurial journey.
This book is for Empathpreneurs, to support them with aligning and grounding their businesses with the seven main chakras, as each one can correspond to a different part of your business:
• Root Chakra: Business Basics • Sacral Chakra: Brand and Identity • Solar Plexus Chakra: Fully Embodied Wellbeing • Heart Chakra: Sharing from the Heart • Throat Chakra: Conscious Communications • Third Eye Chakra: Vision and Planning • Crown Chakra: Connecting to the Field of your Business
The book will look at some of the principles and issues that might come up energetically. For example, the base chakra will include grounding, boundaries and opening to receive financially; the sacral chakra is about flow and creativity; and the throat chakra connects to being visible and expressing your truth.
There will be stories and examples shared throughout the book, holistic wellness, plus practical tools and tips for each chakra to help you with your business as an Empathpreneur.
