Let me tell you a bit about myself?
Hi, I’m Heather, founder of Ginger Health Coaching.
After leaving a career I had been in for 25 years due to burn out and stress I didn't know what to do. I felt I had no choice as the ongoing stress was affecting my health and I feared if I didn't leave I was going to end up with a serious health problem. The ongoing stress made me feel like a hamster on a wheel, getting faster and faster until I got spun off the wheel. I was completely overwhelmed, I felt trapped and desperate. I knew if I wanted to keep my health I had no choice but to leave but I had no idea what else to do. But I couldn't carry on the way I was and I knew life didn't have to be like this. We had also not long moved to our dream home, so I felt a sense of conflict inside me. How could I be living in such a beautiful place and not have the time or energy to enjoy it. I was living in a dream home but spending most of my time living in a nightmare of work related stress and burn out. At the time of leaving my career, along with the loss of income and that security, I also felt I had lost my identity, my purpose, value and direction. I was lost.
In the months after, I worked on recovering myself from the work related stress and burn out. I then decided to use it as an opportunity to do something different. After investigating various areas of interest I came across Health and Life Coaching and decided to retrain as a Health and Life Coach. This enabled me to use the coaching and mentoring skills I already had from my previous career and help people transform their lives.
The journey I went on training as a Health and Life coach and the coaching I have experienced helped me so much. I now have my sense of purpose again, I am doing something I love, I get to share the benefits of everything I have experienced on my journey with others, I have balance in my life, I get to do the things I love, I am more present and in control, I feel energised, positive, happy and healthy. Everyday I find joy and am grateful.
I don't want you to get to burnout, start your journey of transformation, to health and happiness and the life you want now.
I am dedicated to helping and supporting you to become the best version of yourself, to reach your full potential and feel fulfilled. Wherever you are on your journey I can help you transform and achieve your goals – one step at a time.
For the last 12 weeks, Heather has been a supportive mentor, she has guided and helped me gain knowledge and skills, so that I can achieve my goals to feel more confident, healthier and happier person. My energy levels and health have been transformed and I feel so much better. I feel more aware and now setting myself new challenges. I may slip backwards slightly, but that's okay as I have been given the tools to recognise this and am feeling in control.
Acknowledging when change is needed in life order to bring about positive change and break out of unhealthy habits is so important. With the help of Heather, this process was made an easy and fun one and I have enjoyed every step of my journey that has got me to where I am now.
