Hi there I’m Bex, a Transformation Coach, wife, mother, creator and a real deal cat lady.
I’m a kiwi gal enjoying a quiet country lifestyle, with a wonderland of nature at my fingertips. I love all things to do with beach adventures, swimming in rivers and walking in nature. And my creative streak thrives on drawing, sewing, painting and all things crafty.
My specialty is helping women gain control over their anxiety disorder so they can feel calm confidence in their businesses.
It started here
From the age of 14, my journey has woven its way through mental illness and addictions. I used the ‘distraction’ of alcohol, drugs, smoking and sex to soothe my inner turmoil. It worked for me, and when I say that what I mean is, that I was a high functioning mess. I travelled the world, had a successful Hairdressing career, I became a business owner and eventually met and married my husband. On the outside, I looked like I had it together, however, my insides were a raging shambles.
It only really began to unravel when I fell pregnant. I stopped all of my vices for the safety of our baby, and within 3 months I had completely fallen apart. My body had no idea what was going on.
It became glaringly obvious that I had no healthy coping mechanisms, I had taken away how I coped with ‘everything’, so I turned to food. I gained 35kgs and lost every scrap of confidence, self-esteem and self-worth I’d ever had. I was sober, overweight, and extremely depressed.
This was where my real journey began.
I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2 and while it was an answer to why I had behaved the way I had for the past 15yrs, it brought no comfort.
Over the following years, I did a lot of talking therapy and tried many different medications, with little improvement. I literally felt like I only had my nostrils above the water; it was an awful time.
I finally found a treatment plan that stabilised my mood, and I managed to get some wellness traction, yet my emotional struggles were still a bit wobbly.
Getting back out there, re-emerging into the world to find my place was fraught with anxiety. I was riddled with fears; fear of the unknown, fear of not being good enough, fear of getting it wrong, fear of being seen – but I was also determined to put myself out there and NOT let this anxiety get in my way. I’d already lost too many years due to my mental health.
I searched for ways to get some control back and that’s when I discovered EFT and Matrix Reimprinting, energy psychology tools that I could use to release myself from my intrusive emotions, and they worked!
This had a massive impact on my entire life – I wanted to share it with the world! I couldn’t believe that something so simple could make such an impact on emotions! 18mths later I was working towards my practitioner certification, so I could show as many other people just how easy it can be.
It has been the most beautiful healing journey; I am now free from psych meds and don’t even identify with Bipolar. This by no means was a quick journey, it took persistence, courage and lots of support.
