After spending close to 20 years at the top of the creative industries, I know from firsthand experience how the constant search for excellence and originality can be exhausting.
I know how depleted energy reserves can be a vicious, ever decreasing circle, and I know how tough it can be to continue to burn bright without burning yourself out.
Which is why I created Leading Left, to help high-achieving creative athletes stay on top of their game, by providing a no-nonsense, results-driven antidote to the stresses, strains and pressures that today's high-intensity workplaces and fast-paced lifestyles have on our minds, bodies and relationships.
From working extensively across Europe, Australia and the US in high-stake leadership roles, I've seen the damage that depleted energy levels and negative emotional states can have on passionate, driven, creative people – especially when those things are brushed under the carpet or internalised.
If left unchecked, they can quickly turn to into reduced productivity, decreased creativity, lowered self-esteem and impacted leadership abilities. And if they're left to run their natural course, they can lead to personal and professional burnout. Not to the mention the negative impact that being exhausted, stressed, overwhelmed, uninspired and just plain knackered, has on your relationships with friends, family and partners.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
Through my extensive training in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) evidenced-based Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Personal Performance Coaching, I know how avoidable these situations are if interventions are made soon enough and the proper state management techniques are taught well enough.
And as a direct result of the one-to-one coaching and performance psychotherapy I've done with private individuals, businesses and leadership teams, I know that given the right tools, techniques and strategies everyone has the ability to be the fully-charged, wholly-integrated, person or team, that their home-life or work-life needs them to be.
