Hi, I'm Bridie - your Stress Management & Clarity Coach based in Nelson, New Zealand.
How did I end up here?
At 21 I finished my studies and was so happy to land full time work.
The next 6 years were spent aiming for promotions and proving to myself and others that I was successful and doing well.
I stayed too long in a relationship where I never felt good enough, and when I got up the courage to leave it, I was left questioning who I was – without the relationship, the titles, expectations. I filled my diary with exercise classes, coffee dates, adventures and work.
So much work! Always so fucking busy and tired. I became more lost, confused and desperate to find greater clarity and purpose.
At 28 I was exhausted, overwhelmed. My body started to rebel. The more I did, the sicker I became. The pain in my gut and body became so bad.
I remember lying on the floor, crying and in agony. It took me years to link it to stress. I didn’t realised how high my stress levels had become.
I then promised to myself that I would do anything to help heal my body, and my mind. I started researching ways to shift my thinking, reduce stress, create positive habits that last, reduce feelings of unworthiness and self-judgement and learn more about myself than I ever imagined.
I reduced my teaching hours and started learning about meditation, mindfulness, energy work, NLP and CBT – and started my first business.
I applied a simple formula and achieved incredible clarity around Who I was, What I really wanted and WHY it was important to me. I discovered a purpose and passion that excited me so much more than anything I had done.
I now have clear direction, clear purpose, clear action steps and every day wake up excited for how I am living my life. I am serving incredible women with my coaching and filling my life with things I value. It just feels right. My body is healing.
My life is beautiful.
I made the change.
Do I sometimes feel my old ways of thinking trying to creep back in? Of course! But now I have a simple framework to get me back on track and aligned with what is important. These tools changed my life so immensely and they can help you too.
I have created a powerful package and partner with other women so they too can gain clarity, calm, purpose and direction.
