About Me

  

Welcome beautiful

My work is all about you... 

But if you're anything like me, you'll be curious to know who I am, and yes I'll explain about me a little later, but first let's talk about you

If we were meeting for tea & cake with several hours to spare what would you want me to know about you? What hopes & dreams would you want to share with me?

I'd love to know what brought you to my little corner of the world?

I know what I'd share with you, I'd say hi, I'm Lisa, I'm a mother, daughter, wife, sister, friend, a no 1 best selling author, writer, sensitive empath, clairsentience, claircogience & have been told I am clairvoyant too, this means I receive universal guidance in the form of feeling, sensing, & knowing about things before they happen, my gifts are still developing & growing, as I continue on my own spiritual journey.

I'd share with you what I've learned from a life full of trauma, abuse, chaos & curveballs, and how I am now using my own learned experiences to help others overcome their curveballs, and rewrite their stories.

I am a certified master life, spiritual, body healing, confidence & happiness Coach, and I help, guide & support you, in the areas of:

Soulful self identity, soulful self rediscovery Soulful reconnection, & soulful self-acceptance 

Wellbeing & soul self-care, law of attraction, Mindset & mindfulness.

I am a multi passionate creative soul, who uses soul journal therapy in my daily life, as well as with my coaching clients, I am fascinated with understanding the mind, body & soul connection, I use several modalities within my coaching to ensure balance throughout all key areas of life.

And I work with clients to help them to rediscover, reconnect with their dreams & passions, with healing & the transformative practice of self-acceptance & soulful self connection.

As women we tend to put ourselves at the bottom of our never ending to do list, and we can be tired, stressed, overwhelmed, and we end up living our lives for other people, rather than following our own dreams, we listen to others opinions & tell ourselves stories, about what we can & can't do, and soon we forget even who we are, and what we want!

We let our learned stories keep us stuck, and allow them to hijack our identities, which then become the walls that stop us living our lives with soul, strength & freedom.

I became interested in self acceptance & soul connection, after spending the last few decades unravelling my life's trauma, abuse, curveballs & my latest devastating experiences that led me to my own breakdown, addiction & ill health, and ultimately my soul rediscovery & reconnection

So here is what I have learned, and want to share... No one is going to rescue you, only you can do that, it's time to say no more, it's time to take up & rediscover who you are, and what you want, it's time to reconnect to your dreams, to reclaim your inner warrior queen, and time to rewrite your story, to become the leader of your own life... time to be your own damned hero!

As a women with many passions, coach, creative, author, speaker, empath and a full time mum, I also have 3 other businesses, the powered by the soul clothing & accessories range which will be launching soon..DTBA...

So trust me I know the importance of rediscovering YOU

From sharing tips to a 5 minute face, to transforming you from stuck & at the bottom of every to do list, to soul & empowered queen, I will share the importance of rediscovery, reconnection, reclamation & rewriting your story for YOU

Together-we can bring out the sparkles, the creativity, the soul, and I will be cheering you on all the way, as you smash down those walls that are keeping you stuck, to reclaim YOU!

When you mix in a big dose of heart, self kindness & a willingness to do the inner healing & empowering work, get ready for the hope, grace & soul to flood back in, get ready to rewrite the script, where joy, laughter & meaning define your life.

Now you may be sat there thinking oh it's impossible... 

But I promise, together it's easier than you think, because.....I have been where you are..

Now I live and lead from my heart (surrounded by many gemstones & crystals, books, candles and a large collection of notebooks, journals and other pretty stationery.... Anyone else love a pretty notebook?

My heart has always wanted to be creative & to be of service in equal parts, I am all about the soulful connections, rather than shallow aqaintence, the small moments in life, and using my experiences to help others, and to create change.

I can as a Yorkshire girl, talk for England about all things heart, from business, wellness, humanity, and loving, and leading from a place of soul, & grace over perfection, but I can also be the quiet reflective soul, who likes to wander and discover lost places.

I believe that how we show up in life, what we put into life, and what we give out in life, matters.

I believe that showing up with love, soul & vulnerability, in a world that has tried to break you, and your heart, is an act of courage, strength, and a little wild magic (I'm all for bending the rules)

I believe in kindness, loyalty, gratitude, giving back, soul, laughter, joy, love & trusting my gut instincts, these things are important to me.

My soulful words in life... Giving back, Grace and Connection...

I'm here to guide you.... For your soul, you're wellbeing, your life.

For your purpose, passions, hopes & dreams.

To guide you, to gain clarity & activate the change/changes you long for. 

Click on the image below to rediscover you.

 

I love to dance, I have a tattoo, I am ladylike with a touch of northern grit (yes this includes the odd swear word) I am the girl who loved and lost, who has lived and grown through trauma and heartbreak, I am the girl who refuses to quit!

I am a little glam diva mixed with casual boho, and comfy pj's, I love dresses for client meetings, and girly days out for tea & cake (cocktails shh, don't tell anyone) or jeans & t shirt or comfy pj's for down days.

Why do I think I can help & understand you, because I have been there, I have hit rock bottom.

My life has had places of darkness, curveballs, tears, chaos, comparison, exhaustion, disconnected by trauma, abuse, heartache, loss and responsibility.

From a young age after witnessing & living with domestic abuse, bullying, parent abandonment, childhood sexual abuse, I was desperate to fit in, to be loved.

I was anxious, sad, angry, and totally unsure of myself, and my capabilities.

I eventually struggled with an eating disorder, that nearly killed me, because I had lost all my sense of self love, self worth, confidence & belief, so I had relationships that didn't serve me, but hurt me instead with domestic violence, coercive control, bullying, mental, financial & sexual abuse.

I became lost on a path of always putting others first, of shutting down my own emotions and saying I'm ok.

I have struggled with not liking, and not loving me enough, not feeling worthy or good enough, not believing in me, because I was so busy caring for, and looking after everyone else, I forgot about me.

Which led to me drinking nightly to numb the thoughts & internal pain, to health & suspected heart problems, to self loathing & a darkness within.

My wake up call....

Came when I lost the two people that meant the most to me within 3 months of each other, the first was the person that had been my guiding light, my protector friend & beloved nan throughout life, and then my 2nd loss when I had to make some life changing decisions, not just for me, but for my whole family, that would change the course of their lives, and my heart forever.

I reached breaking point, rock bottom, I felt like my life was in pieces, I was in a really dark overwhelming & anxious, place, during this time I was forced into dealing with my pandoras box, the one I had so desperately tried to keep shut, The pain I had been avoiding, some stemming right back from my childhood

I honestly didn't think I wanted to go on, as the suppressed trauma, abuse, abandonment & life's curveballs came up to the surface, I spent months just going through the motions, not feeling, barely thinking, beyond what I had to do that day, not liking myself for feeling this way.

But the fire in me refused to die, instead I went inwards, I knew my soul wanted a deeper love for myself & others, a soul connection, It was during this darkest period that I was guided from beyond the grave.. literally... pushed off my chair to embark on my soul's calling, the purpose I was put here for, and my personal journey to rediscover and reconnect, in order to put myself back together again...

These events awakened a passion that had been lying dormant, locked inside a tiny corner of my soul, I was starting to yearn for more, I wanted to realise my dream of helping others...

I feel grateful that my story so far has had some life changing experiences, to still be in one piece, I have found me again, I have found my strength, and the courage to let my soul light lead the way.

This is why Powered By The Soul is... all about leading & loving your life with soul, dreams, love, laughter, & creativity.

Why the f**k does my story matter to you...

Because I believe that the curveballs & life lessons I've experienced have a purpose, my experiences have helped me, to relate to clients who feel afraid, alone, overwhelmed or lost.

I can show you that your past story does not define you, there is another way, and you can rewrite your story!

Who I am has led me on this pathway of soul, compassion, spirit with sass, grace over perfection, that allows me to be able to guide you like no one else can.

Because I see you, I feel you, I hear you....

And I've done my own personal groundwork to get to this point in my life.

* I recommitted to me, connecting with my inner soul, the fire and the passion inside of me that wanted to empower others, who had lived a life in the shadows.

* I stopped living a life for everyone else, I stopped taking care of everyone else's every single need, and started saying yes to my needs, to my hopes & dreams.

* I transformed my thinking from I can't, to just watch me, and started healing my patterns of control, judgement, fear, and limiting beliefs.

* I am building a relationship with me, my intuition & my soul.

The things I am intensely passionate about:

Coaching: Empowering women to rediscover themselves, to achieve a reconnection to their dreams, passions & purpose, teaching how loving ourselves starts on the inside, it doesn't come from outside validation, helping them to reclaim their inner warrior soul queen, and guiding them to rewrite their stories, to become the leader & queen in their own lives.

Writing: I have always had a love of the written word, of stories, imagination & escape to another world, I love how healing writing can be & I soul journal in my daily life, it is a way for me to explore my inner narrative, in a reflective & soulful way.

Photography/Creativity: Since childhood I have had a love of creativity from creating cards, painting, jewellery, & taking images, I love the mystery & magic, and the not knowing exactly how something will turn out, I love to create bespoke full of a person's emotions & personality.

As a child I constantly had a camera in my hand, and would take random pictures of friends, family & the world around me, I would dream of designs I could create & feel the thrill of anticipation waiting for designs to be finished.

I encourage my clients to use creativity as part of their coaching experience, as part of healing, and as a way of rediscovering joy & beauty in the world around them.

Nothing lights up my soul more than holding sacred soul space for women to explore, rediscover & reconnect, to heal, to be empowered to rewrite their story.

Unofficial bio: 

 * I put passion and 110% commitment into everything I do.

* I love sunshine and laughter, the first snowdrops, pink roses & peonies.

* I love steampunk, old Hollywood movies, one of a kind designs, high heels, pretty dresses, jeans and a T-shirt, a good book, the colour pink in all its shades, sprinkles of glitter & sparkle, green tea in a china tea cup & saucer.

* I talk to myself whilst working, and I love to "dance silly when you're least expecting it".

 * I like life to be full of the small moments we sometimes take for granted, and as easy and stress-free as possible, but in a house full of people, and a princess diva in training this can be chaos at times.

* I love to be organised, and I love to be creative, which can sometimes be contradictory, as being creative can be messy.

* I love stories of any kind, I have always created stories from my on imagination, It started as a way to soothe the hurt as a child, for me & my brother, and has continued with my own children, and now my granddaughter who loves them as a nighttime story...Watch this space, the adventures of Lily Grace may just become a real life story book yet!

* I have always got at least two books on the go, anyone else read in the toilet? don't judge! sometimes its the only place I can get 5 minutes escape.

* I believe in magic, moon dust & fairytales, walks in the woods, cosy fires & hot chocolate, dancing in the rain, and Christmas is my favourite time.

*Grace over perfection ( this is my personal mantra) and one I live by daily, this is why you won't see perfect grammar, only heartfelt content written by me, and hey I make mistakes, it used to drive my english teacher mad, but I'm to old to change #sorryifthisoffendsyou.

I'm not perfect!

This is why you won't see perfect white backgrounds, on any of my images, or product photographs, I take them myself, edit them in an editing suite to make the detail brighter or closer, but that's it.

I encourage you... please ask as many questions as you need, or want to, I promise, I don't bite...

I believe that life is what you make it, (your a long time dead, as my gramps used to say) so let's make life a damn good adventure! Even if it isn't perfect, and bumpy along the way.

That it is better to show your flaws, to be vulnerable, and that pretty things should be worn, don't save them for best, what does that even mean anyway, and that we should all give the gift of love.

I have my quirks, the soulful star seed, the healer, the shadow, the people pleaser, the perfectionist, the procrastinator, the extroverted/introvert me who can also be the outspoken speaker of truths, and the voice for others, who feel they don't have a voice, depending on who I'm with, and where I am.

I walk through this crazy journey called life with a hopeful heart and a daft smile. 

I'd Love to know who are you?

Are you being true to you, the life your really want? Or are you..

* Living a life giving to everyone else! Feeling heavy with the talk of you should, you can't, you need to, and you have too, while you totally ignore what it is that actually makes you happy.

* Feeling lost, overwhelmed, not sure how to move forward with the changes you want to make in your life.

I want to show you the power of belief, the power of yes, of working through your patterns, limiting beliefs, and lack of self love, so you can say Yes to you...

 

 

Because I now know that we work from the inside out, that when we feel good on the inside, our courage, our soul power, and our magic thrives on the outside.
