Hello, I'm Cheryl, an expert in empowering individuals through various approaches. With qualifications as a life coach, hypnotherapist, counselor, and practitioner of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), I possess a diverse set of tools to support your personal growth. Additionally, I specialize in guiding you to leverage the law of attraction, enabling you to manifest your desires in life.

In 2018, I faced a life-altering breast cancer diagnosis, which became a turning point at the age of 48. Recognizing this pivotal moment, I embarked on a journey to redefine my life's purpose and live authentically. When I experienced redundancy in my job, I interpreted it as a universal sign, compelling me to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a life coach and therapist..
Deep within, I have always known that my calling is to help others discover their unique paths and wake up each day with gratitude for the opportunities that lie ahead. My mission is to reignite the inner spark within individuals, rekindling the dreams and aspirations they held dear as children. As adults, we often allow these aspirations to fade into the background amidst the demands of daily life.

Rest assured, I will provide a safe and nurturing space where you can envision the life you genuinely desire. Together, we will uncover the limiting beliefs and obstacles that have held you captive, empowering you to create a life in alignment with your deepest aspirations.
Having walked this transformative path myself, I have emerged as a guiding light, embracing my true purpose. I won't sugarcoat it—the journey ahead will require introspection and soul-searching. However, with the unwavering support I provide and the tools I share, we can illuminate your path and completely transform your life.

If you are genuinely prepared to embark on an extraordinary voyage of self-discovery, unlocking your true potential, and living your most fulfilling life, join me. Together, we will courageously take the first step towards a radiant future.

Is Therapy Right for Me or Am I Overreacting?

Deciding whether to seek therapy can be challenging, especially when you're unsure if your feelings are valid or if you might be overreacting. Here are some points to consider that can help you make an informed decision:
Recognizing When Therapy Might Be Beneficial
  1. Persistent Feelings of Sadness or Anxiety: If you’ve been experiencing prolonged periods of sadness, anxiety, or hopelessness, therapy could help you understand and manage these emotions.
  2. Difficulty Functioning in Daily Life: Struggling to carry out everyday tasks, perform at work or school, or maintain relationships might indicate that you could benefit from professional support.
  3. Trauma or Major Life Changes: If you've recently experienced a traumatic event, significant loss, or major life transition (like divorce, job loss, or a move), therapy can provide coping strategies and emotional support.
  4. Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms: Turning to alcohol, drugs, food, or other unhealthy behaviors to cope with stress or emotions may be a sign that you need help.
  5. Desire for Personal Growth: Therapy isn’t only for those in crisis. Many people seek therapy to improve self-awareness, personal development, and achieve greater life satisfaction.
Debunking the "Overreacting" Myth
It's common to question the severity of your feelings or to think you might be overreacting. Here’s why seeking therapy isn’t an overreaction:
  • Every Emotion is Valid: Your feelings are real and valid. Therapy provides a safe space to explore and understand your emotions, no matter how big or small they may seem.
  • Early Intervention Helps: Addressing issues early can prevent them from escalating. Therapy can be a proactive step towards maintaining your mental well-being.
  • No Issue is Too Small: Therapists are trained to help with a wide range of concerns. What might seem minor to you could still be worth exploring with a professional.
Self-Assessment Questions
To further reflect on whether therapy might be right for you, consider these questions:
  • Are your emotions affecting your daily life and well-being?
  • Do you feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to cope?
  • Are you using substances or other behaviors to manage your feelings?
  • Have friends or family expressed concern about your mental health?
  • Are you interested in understanding yourself better and making positive changes?
Next Steps
If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions or if you’re still unsure, reaching out to a therapist for an initial consultation can be a helpful step. Many therapists offer a first session to discuss your concerns and determine if therapy could be beneficial for you.
Remember, seeking therapy is a sign of strength and a step towards taking care of your mental health. It's okay to seek help and support when you need it.
