“Prior to working with Lydia I felt lost in my own world that I had created. I had worked so hard over the previous 6 years to forge out a life for myself that I had always dreamed of. I was a Director of a well respected London business, had a beautiful country Surrey home, married to an amazing guy and have a beautiful daughter. So how come I felt so lost and out of place in the environment I had created. I had this feeling that I was meant to be doing something else and giving back but I just couldn’t figure out what it was. I stumbled across Lydia in a publication and it was like a sign that I had to get in touch! Since working with Lydia I have had the confidence to change my life drastically and understand exactly what it was that I wanted to do and achieve. The life I had created before was almost like a postcard and someone else’s dream, yet working with Lydia helped me establish what the little voice inside was telling me. I left my corporate job yet managed to agree to work freelance for them, retrained as a Personal Trainer and Life coach. Launched my own business, helping woman achieve a positive mindset around their body and adopt a healthy approach to diet and exercise. We moved to be closer to family and now get to see them every week and they can enjoy seeing our daughter grow up and now I’m also training to be a yoga teacher. I had always lived life in the fast lane, working long hours, sacrificing time with my daughter, family and friends. Yet now I get to do something I am truly passionate about that comes from the heart, I still get to make the most of my drive and ambition yet spend time with those I love the most. The word balance for me didn’t exist before and whilst I have still not mastered this, it is something that is much more present in my life, meaning I can live in the moment more.”
