Blood Clots & Breakdowns.
In 2010 I landed back at Heathrow Airport after getting married in South Africa; I collapsed getting off the aeroplane and was rushed off to hospital, where I was diagnosed with blood clots to my lungs.
The clots meant that I could not work for a year, and I had to use the savings I had in order to survive, despite my husband working full time. In January 2016 my husband suffered a mental breakdown at work, and since this time has not been able to work, so we were once again living off one salary.
I always felt secure with my personal financial situation, however these experiences and others left me in a situation where I was struggling to keep my head above the water; they gave me a deeper understanding of what it is like to be counting the pennies every day, worrying how to pay the debts, and finding it impossible to see any light at the end of the tunnel.
Combining Healing & The Practical.
I have always had a passion for healing, which started when I took a course in Shiatsu in South Africa when I was 21. Since then I have completed courses in Reiki, Swedish Massage and basic Counselling.
I have a thirst for knowledge, and over the years I have collected and read a number of self-help books that cover various areas of healing, including nutrition, tapping, energy healing, yoga, pilates and many more.
When I experienced my own financial difficulties I started exploring ways of combining healing with my existing practical knowledge of accounting in order to help heal my own relationship with money; all of these I include in Make Peace With Money.
My adventure is still on-going. Whatever happens I feel confident in the tools and skills I have learnt, and continue to develop, and I know that these will help me to take the positive action I need in order to achieve the level of financial stability that I want.
