What if you are constantly getting overshadowed by more dominant personalities and your boundaries are looking like voile curtains! - What would it mean to you to really feel respected and heard?
But here you are - this magnificent and beautiful being with so much to contribute! You are creative, sensitive, you work hard and you're a good listener, you feel for others and you are perceptive and intelligent - What is the world missing out on?

P.S I'd love to support you!
But just one question if I may,
Are you courageous enough to explore the depths of your inner being and appreciate how miraculous, creative, magnificent and powerful you really are?
If the answer is YES! or even a maybe, Click the button below and let's begin with a free taster session so that you can discover more....
Do you have inner mind monkeys that chatter phrases such as: "I'm not good enough, I'll never get it, I'm going to look stupid in front of everybody!" Well - you are not alone!
I'm not going to pretend it's easy to quieten those monkeys or that there's a magic formula to miraculously give you confidence and self-esteem (you may have tried a few things already and realised that quick fixes don't last very long.) But what I will say is that it is simple!
It's about reconnecting to the whole of you (body, mind and soul) and expressing from the energy of love within you. You can do this by observing your life honestly, courageously nominating and letting go of the stories and games that are not serving you to evolve and consistently choosing that which is serving you to evolve. To facilitate this, we expand the awareness of and connection to the body by working on a very deep level with the help of your own voice.
Connect & Express is a way to address the core of the problem and deal with the anxiety that precedes expression.
Perhaps anxiety is an occasional visitor who pounds at the door of your solar plexus when you're just about to do something that you don't feel equipped for, i.e. speak to senior management, present a project or attend an interview to name a few, or......
perhaps it's a constant shadow that hangs around siding with your self-doubt and mind monkeys, the result is the same - a shaky voice, a beating heart, feeling sick to the stomach and just wanting the earth to open up right there and swallow you whole - we all know that feeling only too well!
Confidence Coaching and Holistic Vocal Coaching support both a positive and confident mindset and a voice that expresses from your whole body instrument that feels authentically you. It feels like reconnecting to something already within you, so rather than developing anything, we could say that you are discovering what you already are, or more correctly, to return to that which you already know.
Observing, identifying, discovering your natural voice, feeling confident to use it and beginning to trust that you have always had the skills to respond to the challenges that life presents is truly empowering and free's your natural powerful expression. That is what Connect & Express supports you with.
"I would love to support you to realise your confident self, to express joyfully and purposefully and to reconnect to your true beauty & wisdom. That’s what Gorgeous Hearts Connect & Express is all about!"
I work mainly, but not exclusively, with sensitive, ambitious professional women who feel unheard and unfairly treated, and I help them to reconnect to the power of their intuition and discover their unique and powerful voice so they can master anxiety and express their value confidently.
Many of us repeat our own version of 'Groundhog Day' until perhaps something inspires us to look a little deeper. The repetitious nature of cycles brilliantly and miraculously enables us to fall down the same holes until we get it - that's when we decide to make a change - to transcend the old cycle and begin a new one. This is evolution!
An openness and willingness to discover more about what, and subsequently, who you are, is an essential quality to possess and a requirement when working with me. I support you to embrace your whole self and live in a balanced way that feels harmonious and powerful, so you can express in your fullness and so the world gets all of you!
Anybody who feels intuitively that there is more to who they are.
Anybody who is interested in self-awareness and self-discovery
Anybody who loves a holistic approach to anxiety related illnesses and
Anybody who would like to reconnect to their voice and express confidently
A lack of confidence makes everybody feel anxious. Anxiety can be like the low hum of a fridge that you only notice when it abruptly stops and there is a palpable silence, but it can swiftly escalate into a cacophony of head noise that drowns out rational thought, plaguing you with thoughts that you're out of your depth, that you can never compete with your work colleagues or that your ideas will be laughed at or questioned beyond your capacity to reply articulately - the trick is to catch anxiety when it's a low hum.
Anxiety may also increase in intensity during certain times of the month or during menopause and it's easy at these times to also feel unheard or invisible, be more self-critical and withdraw from the otherwise joyful expression that one could be appreciating.
Rather than focusing on the symptoms though, we could go straight to the real cause of anxiety. I know that for me, I tend to feel anxious when there is something in life that I don't feel capable of handling, and instead of accepting that, I try to control the outcome either physically or mentally. It's an impossible feat to control any outcome in life so it often leads to overwhelm and a lack of confidence - this is because we've always been recognised for what we do and not who we are.
BUT there is something that we can control - our choices!
Before expression there is always energy (as we know, everything is energy) Not all energy produces the same expression, so an interesting question to ask is, 'which energy creates anxiety?'
Energy precedes thoughts, intentions and actions, so What energy are you choosing to align to that then manifests as anxiety?'
Where can we access and align to the energy that manifests as love, care, confidence, understanding etc.? How can you choose that energy and how might that expression affect your life and those around you.
My daughter suffers anxiety and panic attacks. She is very expressive, creative and talented and yet she is horrified by the thought of going into a room where people have already taken their seats. She may never speak publicly and fear talking to strangers, but singing has always helped her to feel joyful. She accepts that anxiety is going to be a part of her life, and in a way that helps her to manage it.
I've witnessed some horrifying consequences of this anxiety that I wouldn't wish on any parent, but with patience and support I've seen her grow from a self-harming teenager into a sensitive and empathetic young woman who feels the fear, but bravely embraces herself more and more. This is what inspired me to be a coach and why I'm an anxiety slayer! 🤣 but let's not digress - back to the voice and singing because that's the real point of this story.....
During all my years of singing and performing, I have realised that the intention behind what you sing makes a huge difference to how you feel. This goes back to energy and vibration. An intention to heal for example, doesn’t have the same vibration as an intention to harm and yet we are less than discerning about the vibrations that are continually passing through our bodies when we speak and when we listen. Just like food can have different vibrations depending on where it is grown, produced, packaged and sold, the music we listen to can vary and is influenced by the artist, the producers and intention behind it all. This is why using your voice carries a certain responsibility. When other people speak to you there is a choice to observe how this feels rather than absorb the energy/vibration that comes from their intention.
I began presenting this in my singing classes and I noticed how much it helped my students to feel more confident and responsible about the intention behind their delivery. Rather than concentrating on becoming a better performer, we concentrated on connecting to the whole body instrument and feeling the harmony of voice, body and mind as one expression.
As for my own performance, well, better late than never, it got rid of my performance anxiety. I feel more purpose and a responsibility to sing and perform with love so that the people listening get that rather than my self-doubt (who would want that??)
Some of my students found it easier to let go of their performance anxiety and get into the flow much more easily while others felt that letting go of 'controlling' their voice allowed them to sing much better by releasing tension in the body. All of them felt more confident about their voices. So I began working with people who weren't necessarily interested in being a singer and realised how incredibly healing it is for anyone who lacks confidence.
We all express in so many individual ways, whether it's how we speak, move, love, organise, create, present, perform, inspire and influence, in our relationships, at home or at work, what is that expression and how can you claim it in everything you do? Gorgeous Hearts Connect and Express supports you to discover that true, authentic and powerful expression and be free of the anxiety that holds you back. Recconnect with who you are and feel the confidence that your beautiful and unique self can express!
“Evolving as a person isn't so much a case of developing oneself, but rather an alignment to the energy of love that already resides within you. You are magnificent just by being you! So start believing it and all else will follow. Discard all that stops your expression from being the love you are. Self-doubt, lack of self-worth and self-judgement are not you - they are choices that identify you"
My soul to yours
