Fiona is a Midlife Empowerment Coach with a compassionate, down-to-earth and holistic approach to healing her clients on a mind, body and spirit level, so that they emerge totally reconnected to their inner power as they recover the courage to be themselves again.
After being involved in not one but two car accidents over 25 years ago (only 3 months apart), resulting in excruciatingly painful whiplash injuries that did not respond to modern medical rehabilitation, she turned to a Kinesioligist in desperation, who “fixed” her neck.
Over the next 17 years, she combined her job that took her round the world with British Airways, with an almost compulsive course of study, that led her to explore and become qualified in many and diverse alternative treatment therapies including Kinesiology.
Her husband´s job took her and their young family to Hong Kong, where she gave up her airline career and delved with gusto into the study of Eastern traditional medicine and health practices for the next three years.
Shortly after moving to the Philippines for her husband’s job, he announced that their marriage was over. Reeling with shock but determined to forge ahead for the sake of her children, she slowly built up her self-esteem by applying all the mind-balancing techniques she had studied over the years on herself and plunged into an intensive course of study into personal development and life coaching mind-balancing methods.
So as not to uproot her sons , Fiona remained in the Philippines for a further 7 years, building up a successful business as a holistic life coach helping other women to regain their self-esteem from a place of inner peace and balance, based on her own journey of self-recovery and discovery.
Since moving back to the UK with her two sons 4 years ago, Fiona has focused her energies on helping people to embrace the midlife transition period they are facing from a place of hope and joy rather than fear of change:
“I look at midlife as a time of reinvention; an exciting time to work out exactly who we are, which has often been lost in the ether somewhere along the line. So many of us reach this time of our life where we have spent many years looking after the needs of others and lose our identity and dreams in the process. I see this as a time to focus on ourselves and how we can connect to the wisdom within. This is not a time in our lives to be wasted but valued as a new chapter in our book of life..”
Fiona currently lives in Surrey (UK) with her youngest son (the eldest is at University) and two dogs and combines her work as a Midlife Empowerment Coach with voluntary work for a children’s helpline charity, using her love of cycling (and yoga) when she can, to participate in fund-raising races for causes close to her heart.
