I’m Jodi. A coach and yoga teacher, and an unshakeable optimist. I have a passion for building internal love, growth and joy and improving empathy and compassion for one another. I’m living a much happier life now that I listen to my heart and I want the same for you!
Want to know more about me and my offerings? Read on for the rest.
I’m a recovering people-pleaser
After trying many jobs that didn’t fit for me, I spent many years knowing that I couldn’t settle for a life that didn’t feel right. But as a people-pleaser I held back being honest about what I really cared about for many years through fear of judgement. Through experiences in my own life I saw that sacrificing our own happiness for the sake of others & opinions led to regret and a stranglehold of unhealthy habits and behaviours.
My time now goes into creating work that provides real value to you and fits my own personal nature - so that others get the best from me.
Here’s what I believe:
Too often we try and fit ourselves into a different shaped mould, and I believe this is a serious root of unhappiness. Whether it is the wrong job, office culture, friendship circles, home town and so on. Being involved in something which doesn’t feel right, leaves us feeling increasingly unhappy, unwell, or at the least, losing interest and excitement in life. In turn this causes a negative ripple effect, feeding into the lives of those around us.
Spend too long in these environments and you will start to tell yourself (consciously or subconsciously) that you are the problem. That you are not good enough, there is something wrong with you, you’ll never be able to achieve anything different, and that maybe this is just what life is like. This isn’t true! I know that you can feel so much happier in yourself than you can even imagine right now.
We have two choices: impact ourselves and others positively, or impact ourselves and others negatively. The former requires us to take full ownership of our lives, shift our mindset, and take responsibility for correcting course. Not easy, but so worth it.
The only thing we have any control over in life is our inner world
In other words, where we choose to focus our attention, the meaning we give to things, and how we choose to respond to outside circumstances. The power and responsibility lies 100% with us to choose what to focus on and believe. It's easier said than done, but with the right skills and practice, I know we can live life with more real happiness, and I want to help make this happen for you!
I see our lives as stories, told by us in how we respect ourselves
Does your story feel true to you? What story are you telling others in how you behave each day? We need more real in a world of increasing fake. This site gives you tools to help you listen to your heart more so that life starts to feel right.
Taking responsibility for our own lives, not other people’s, is freeing
When we stop trying so hard to keep others happy and see that happiness is our individual responsibility, it shifts things. We start to see the possibility for our lives. And when live as the real us, we’ll thrive and feel the fulfilment we deserve.
In an increasingly busy and edited world I work at keeping it simple, natural, intentional and real
I find a more real happiness through slowing down through yoga and other healthy habits. I help others to slow down, too, helping to reconnect to themselves and learn to shift their mindset for the positive.
I am happiest when I am in my own flow
That’s when I feel I am really living in this life. Personally, that includes health, music, photography and a good chat with those I love. It’s also beautiful food that feeds me well, Jessie J, chocolate, beautiful and simplistic surroundings, quality over quantity, non-judgemental love and friendship. And the odd spinning class with a deafening soundtrack!
I have always been interested in psychology and discovering potential.
It interests me why so many of us can feel lost, be so hard on ourselves and not know how to get beyond that. I think that only when we commit to understanding our needs and really owning all aspects of our lives, can we wake up to the real possibilities for ourselves.
I have plenty of work to do on myself
This stuff is always ongoing. I have low days (which I’d ideally turn into a Game of Thrones day), trip myself up and get caught up in fear and self-doubt. This isn’t about having a perfect life. It is about taking responsibility for our lives.
I share with you what I have learned over the years and, to me, makes all the difference between coasting along with nagging doubt, and living your most fulfilling life where you feel like an even better you.
Which brings me to you, lovely human!
Are you a bit sick of not feeling your best more often? Are you overwhelmed in a career that stresses you out? Is there a nagging feeling sometimes which distracts you? Do you get easily upset or frustrated and don’t really get why? Whatever it is, tell me about it! I want to know, and help, and get you feeling way happier way more often!
I’m here to help you see life differently, to learn to really care for and respect yourself, and to take control of your internal story, so that you can become a confident and self-assured person who is in control of their life, regardless of other people’s opinions.
I’m excited for your journey ahead.
