ABOUT EMMA

3 years ago I found myself at a life crossroads. (I’m sure you’ve felt the same before too, or maybe you’re there right now?)
I was a busy working mum juggling caring for my two little girls alongside a demanding legal career..

I absolutely loved being a mum and wanted to be around to meet all of their needs, but at the same time I was also really passionate and very proud of the successful career I’d worked so hard to establish.

“I felt torn and craved more balance and to escape the stress, overwhelm, and frustration that comes from striving to be your best as a parent, employee, mentor, friend and colleague but feeling that you’re failing to perform to your full potential.”

I wanted to be the best mum I could be, but I also wanted a purpose outside of being a mum. Whilst I remained passionate about my legal career I started to doubt if I had what it took to remain successful without compromising time with my family.

My Story

 

I knew I needed change. I felt a need to step away from the corporate treadmill I’d been running on for so long but I didn’t know how to make the change happen, how to start, what else I could do. So I was grateful that an opportunity presented itself to me. An opportunity to start my own business with minimal startup cost and limited risk.

Starting something completely new and entirely different to my previous career from scratch was both challenging and exhilarating. I developed new skills and began the start of a new personal development journey as I started to look toward the future and what I wanted that to look like. I had the chance to design my life to start to explore my true passion and work in alignment with my true purpose but I wasn’t sure I knew what that was.

So this time I sought help and guidance and was grateful to connect with a coach who helped me to gain clarity on where I was heading and how I could live my best life. The journey wasn’t without its challenges. I had deep seated issues to deal with – anxiety, depression and emotional abuse that had led to feelings of negative self-worth, lack of self-belief and lots of fear.

The time investing in myself has grown me in ways I could have never imagined. I realised that overcoming depression, anxiety and emotional abuse wasn’t something to be ashamed of, it was to be celebrated as challenges than I had overcome and I knew that if I could overcome those challenges that I could help and show others that they could do the same too.

My desire to help and support has always been strong. Helping others was the reason I first went into the legal profession and why throughout my career I’ve always engaged in mentoring and coaching programmes to help and support others. Seeing others achieve and succeed has always brought fulfilment to me.

I knew that whilst I could reach those I worked with as part of my business, there were still lots of women out there in the same situation as I had been – overworked, overwhelmed and lacking direction and focus. Enjoying life but not to the fullest extent not with real joy, purpose or passion and I wanted to help them too.

It was then that my purpose became clear. I wanted to help as many women as I could to step into their true light, to shake off their limiting beliefs and negative self talk, and to embrace their true potential and worth and start to live their best life yet.

My mission now is to help as many women as possible to believe in themselves and that their best is yet to come.

Perfect way to relax and reflect after a fabulous few days - celebrating 10 years 👰🏼💍🤵🏼 with Mr S and then London with an incredible bunch of amazing women 🙌🏻💕

Once again a reminder for me of the importance of surrounding myself with good people, with positivity, with love and inspiration and the people that will challenge me and make me want to be a better person...

Happy and grateful!

  • #TBT this day 10 years ago when I woke up in a castle in Scotland about to start one of the best days of my life 🙌🏻
.
We’d already had 4 days of fun and this was the finale!
.
I wasn’t a princess set to marry a prince 😂😂 far from it...I was just a girl from Hull who had caught the eye of a bloke from Keighley and we wanted the biggest party weekend we could to celebrate ‘making it official’ with our friends and family!
.
 We knew Scotland wouldn’t let us down...if the Scots know one thing it’s how to party 🎉 🎊 (plus the fact at the time I might have thought my husband was Scottish 🙈😂😂 don’t ask!!!)
.
Since that incredible day we’ve had our ups and downs and faced life’s changes and challenges but through it all we’ve had each other and we’ve had so much fun and lots of laughs!
.
We’ve visited amazing places, moved houses and welcomed 2 gorgeous little ladies into our family 💕
.
I feel well and truly blessed to have this man by my side.  He’s my biggest supporter, listens to all my crazy ideas (and sometimes goes along with them - remember the Scotland thing 😂😂) he’s my best friend and my life would totally suck without him in it!
.
I thought that if we made it to 10 years we’d recreate the wedding party but i honestly can’t believe 10 years is here already! It doesn’t feel long enough! .
So today we’re spending time together, just the two of us, so you’ll have to dust your dancing shoes off in another 10 💃🏼😂😂
.
To my friends and family that were there that weekend, THANK YOU!!! 🙌🏻🙏🏻🙌🏻
.
It was without doubt one of the best weekends I’ve EVER had and one I still remember every day and it wouldn’t have been any where near as much fun without all of you 💕💕

  • I’m so excited...
.
My mum is coming to stay and we are all set, house tidy, ironing pile ready 😉 and I’ve filled her room with sprays of her favourite 💐 .
What this lady has taught me over the years is more valuable than anything I’d find in a book and I’m totally grateful everyday that she is in my life... 💕
.
Without her I wouldn’t be the woman or the mum that I am and for that I’m incredibly thankful 💕
.
It’s even more exciting that I get to hear the updates on her plans to follow her dreams and emigrate 🏝 even though I’ll be totally devastated 😭I couldn’t be more proud -  there’s something so powerful about someone who has a dream and stops at nothing to make it happen 🙌🏻
