Introducing The Life Lab Academy
I see you . . . . I know you’re here for a reason, and I know It’s because you don’t want things to be as they are right now!
Let me just pop my virtual arm around you and let you know, you’re in the right place.
It might be that right now you feel that you are constantly putting blocks in your own way OR it might be that you actually can’t quite see the wood for the trees. It might also feel tremendously scary to move away from where you are right now . . . yeah it might suck to be this stuck but at least you know what to expect . . . right? That’s normal too! Let’s just put that out there BUT it’s definitely not as scary as you may have lead yourself to believe.
Imagine if you didn’t have to constantly overthink . . . if you didn’t feel the need to plan for every eventuality, that you don’t have to overanalyse everything, make things mean stuff it doesn’t or be stuck inside your own head as the mental bandwidth of all the thoughts exhausts you.
We all experience struggles in life from time to time – we’re all human beings and ‘stuff’ happens that can throw us a curve ball (2020 happened to us all). But if those struggles have caused you to feel fear, anxiety, overwhelm and even panic, I want you to know that you are not alone and you don’t have to live your life that way.
Can you feel that weight lift?
Just imagine it, it feels light and filled with possibilities doesn’t it!
Don’t talk yourself out of it, it’s absolutely possible for you I Pinky swear!
Take a moment to think what it would be like if you didn’t have to control every area of your life in order to feel safe and you could ‘notice the fear and do it anyway’ WOW!
Now that one . . . that one feels like a whole new level of experience, adventure, situations and like there’s life in your life OR it might feel like you could function day to day without all that tension, worry, heaviness and overwhelm – whichever it is, it’s truly liberating.
Is this for you?
“Is what for me?” I hear you say?
Let me help you, I’m reaching out my hand (as a fully qualified Psychotherapist and coach) to help you to navigate all the “stuff” that’s holding you back.
So, would this be for you?
Well read on…
Are you avoiding the places, people and things that used to bring you joy, or even worse you have to ‘force’ yourself to go, to put on a brave face and ‘make out’ everything is fine (there’s an anagram for FINE and it starts with a swear word)?
Are you angry at yourself and beat yourself up for the way you think and feel?
Self-care for you is just doing enough to get by.
Do you feel guilty all the time, or use words like ‘I should be….., or why can’t I just…….’?
Perhaps you feel anxious and overwhelmed and would do anything to stop it happening again, you feel like it is affecting those around you.
You constantly fear passing it on to your kid’s
You have tried everything and nothing seems to work.
But more impactfully and most importantly… It feels like it’s getting worse, you know something needs to change but you don’t know where to start!
It’s time to get curious…
…if you didn’t have to constantly ‘Be Strong’ ,if you didn’t have to ‘Try Hard’ in every area of your life in order to just get through the day. What could you achieve?
Go out with mates without planning the whole thing in your head first?
Grow your business without being a blubbering wreck all the time, worrying what people think, comparing yourself to those ‘successful’ ones all over Facebook and Insta?
Take the ‘mask’ off without the fear of being judged?
Loose the guilt and shame of not being ‘perfect’?
Just be YOU! Did you get a feeling then? Panic, excitement or WTAF!
You could stop doing all the things that put blocks in your way, the things you ‘think’ keep you safe!
I’ve got your back.
You don’t need to do it on your own, or work out what to do next, I’ve got that covered too. There is a way to make a change and it’s simpler than you think.
My name is
and I'm going to show you how
16 years ago I started my journey with Counselling, Psychotherapy and Coaching. I’ve struggling with my own panic attacks and anxiety, I suffered from postnatal depression with all 3 of my children and over the last 10 years, I’ve personally road tested everything I share with my clients today.
Not only do I have client results to show for my work but, I'm here today to navigate the way with you in-spite of being in a similar space and place to you. The work that I do with clients now is to share with them a clear path to busting those blocks we all have. I’m now able to live my life, play in a much bigger way and ditch the control freakiness I thought kept me safe.
You don’t need to push yourself to ‘go outside your comfort zone’, you don’t need to ‘face your fears’ in a controlled environment (why would anyone do that)?!!
No mind over matter, no controlling your state of mind or weird and wonderful ways to ‘control’ your feelings.
No relaxation and breathing techniques, no visualisations and monitoring or controlling your thoughts. (you can if you want, if it’s working for you now then don’t stop BUT you might just find all the things you feel you need to do, just simply fade away)
It’s funny when you suddenly notice that you just grab your keys and go do whatever you want without all the planning.
I can remember the first time I noticed hearing a bus go past without the sudden whoosh of anxiety, when we work together remind me to tell you about it.
So what now?
Without support from the right people studies say it takes up to 90 days to make a change.
30 days to work out what you do – and why you do it!
30 days to put things in place based on your unique ‘stuff’ – we all do the weirdest things to keep ourselves safe/stuck. You can have a wobble here, that’s OK we all do it, this time I’ll be there to steady you.
30 days to fly, with a catch net – ME!
BUT . . .
With the right help and therapeutic support it doesn’t ‘need’ to take 3 months, It doesn’t ‘need’ to be ‘hard work’. If you are committed to making a change, you show up and do the work (I’ll hold you accountable) you WILL start to see the change so much easier and sooner!
My 6 week LIFE LAB ACADEMY gives you all the ‘stuff’ you can use based on where you are now!
It’s based on therapeutic principles, proven to work by yours truly!
Every week we cover a different topic together as a group (no pre-recorded videos). I talk you through it, and I walk the walk with you right by your side!
This is a BRAND NEW never before seen or designed course!
I don’t know of ANYONE or ANY course/program that is offering anything like what I am offering here! It is a brand new concept and I’m so excited to share it with you.
The level of support you will get from me in this program and the level of change you can expect to make (IF you put the work in) will literally be life changing.
Now I’m not saying this is a magic pill! Anyone that knows me and how I work will know that YOU need to turn up, and put the work in! You can’t just pay me your money, sit back and hope that something will change, that is unfortunately not how this mental health stuff works. You need to be fully committed and turn up to most of the sessions, put the work in, and WANT to make a change and if you can do that I GUARANTEE you will experience HUGE change!
I was in the process of designing a huge 6 week course with hours of video content and workbooks BUT after talking to members of my group, running various free and paid events/courses and from my own experience of signing up to courses (and not completing them . . . yes I’ve done it too haha) I came to the realisation that this is just NOT how learning or transformation happens!
Learning and transformation happens through structured/guided support, and by learning and sharing experiences with other people going through a similar experience in a safe, supportive and non judgemental environment and that is what I have created in the Life Lab Academy!
So come on . . . . tell me what it is!
6 Weeks long/short
Why make it any longer? This is long enough to make huge change but short enough to fully dive in and commit fully. 3 month, 6 month or 1 year programs just drag out the same content but with less support and spread it out over a longer time frame to justify the higher price tag.
Monday 1 hour live workshop
It all starts with a recorded (so you can catch up) live hour long Zoom session with me on the Monday. This will be all the information you will need for that week. It will be a live workshop style format with slides and explanations, put your hand up or comment if you don't get it etc. I've realised you don't need more and more hours of content rammed down your ears that you don't have time to watch or digest with your busy life. You need less content but delivered in the right way! And that is what we will do every Monday.
Tuesday 2 x coaching call 'hot seats'
Every Tuesday we have 2 half an hour slots available for people to book in (first come first serve) and speak to me 121 but these will be a 'hot seat' style call if you are happy. So it will be just me and you on the Zoom call with no distractions but it will be live streamed into the group so that others can listen in and also learn from the session. I realise this might seem WAY out of your comfort zone at the moment but I promise this will be amazing and you will all be fighting for the spaces by the end of the 6 weeks. If you really aren't happy for it to be live streamed then we can do it privately but everyone (including you) will get so much from listening back to it and also listening in on other people's sessions too so if we all get comfortable with sharing we will get so much more out of it and experience transformations so much quicker.
Wednesday ask me anything live
Wednesday is another Live Zoom with me as an ask me anything hour. Where you can ask me about something you didn't understand from the Monday session, something from the Tuesday hot seats or anything at all. You can ask me these live on the Zoom, drop them in the comments, or private message me any is fine.
Thursday 2 x coaching call 'hot seats'
Thursday we have another 2 'hot seats' available (so 4 half hour slots per week available so everyone will get chance to do at least 1 over the 6 weeks).
Friday recorded live Zoom call
Friday we have a recorded weekly live Zoom call. This is a free for all, whoever comes on can ask me anything, or chat to the other members, I can cover any topic you want or just have a laugh and get to know each other. These are great fun when everyone joins in and lets their guard down. My members come with a glass of wine, lying in bed or out in the garden, it's all very relaxed and we'll become a very comfortable tribe/family over the 6 weeks I promise.
Access to Me (ALMOST) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
You get full access to me, a fully qualified Psychotherapist and Life Coach whenever you need me within the group. Just post, comment or message me and I will be there to offer support and guidance. It might be daunting at first but I prefer you to post your issues within the group so that others can also benefit from hearing what you are struggling with and how to overcome it. When we all share and support each other that makes us 'better together'.
Access to a private Facebook group
We have a pop up private Facebook group for the whole 6 weeks which is where all the comments, support and sharing will be so it's best if you are on Facebook. If you're not just join for this one group for 6 weeks I promise it will be worth it! It is a very small, closed, intimate group where we can all share our inner secrets without fear or judgement. You can ask me anything in here night or day and I will always get back to you (if not straight away, the next day) either with a written reply or sometimes with a live or video if I think it will benefit others. This is an uplifting, positive environment.
Only 30 spaces
The programme is limited to a maximum of 30 members, and for this first one I have reserved 9 spots for my members so there are only 21 spots available which are going to go fast!
I hold you accountable and give you a ‘very therapeutic’ kick up the butt to get out of your own way and get stuff done. I'm not going to harass or chase you if you don't turn up, but if you do turn up you won't be able to slide into the background! I want you to get the results you are looking for and I know the best way for you to get these results, so trust me and the process, I've got you!
Regular lives + personal interaction
I will be doing regular live videos in the group as well as sending you personal voice notes and messages to keep you going and holding your hand throughout the journey!
None of this is set in stone and it can all be subject to change based on your feedback. If we find something isn’t working, or you are all getting more value from one of the sessions and not using the coaching calls or visa versa we can swop things around or if you prefer having more sessions on one of the days and can’t make another day etc we can move and mould this program to suit the majority.
Ok so HOW MUCH I hear you say!
This is going to cost me thousands you must be thinking!?
Nope . . . . the price is just £297.
I try to keep my prices as low as possible so that I can help and support as many people as possible regardless of their budget. Some therapists charge £60 per hour but not me!
I charge £40 per hour and I have some clients that come to me each and every week and have done for years, so £40 per hour x 6 weeks = £240 (and that’s just for one hour with me a week)! Look at everything I am offering here for just an extra £10 per week!
I love personal 121 therapy, it’s my job and I do help a lot of people but the change can be slow. And we have a great 1 hour session but you then slot back into your normal life, in the same environment with the same people living the same life and it can be really hard to get the big impactful change you are looking for with just 1 hour with me a week and no supportive, judgement free, like-minded, environment.
That’s why I have created Life Lab and I feel like it is my life’s calling!
Why is alcoholics anonymous and drug detox centres so successful compared to conventional therapy or trying to change on your own? Because it is structured/qualified support within a supportive environment of like minded people all going through something similar to you.
Welcome to the Life Lab Academy!

* Just £247 with 50OFF Code until 1st Sept *
Completely RISK FREE
If within the first 14 days of starting the program you decide it’s not for you, I will even give you a FULL, no obligation refund.
I don’t want people in the program who aren’t happy to be there and don’t feel like they are getting value for their investment.
If I haven’t seen you on any of the Zooms or active in the group though I will be asking you whether you have actually given it a try!
You will ONLY get out of this program what you put in . . . . . so I will repeat:
You CAN’T just give me your money and expect change to happen! If that is your plan for making a change please don’t sign up because I can tell you now it isn’t going to work! If you put nothing in, you will get nothing out!
I only want to work with ladies who are going to put the effort in, and WANT to be there!
If you’ve found your way here then something fits and feels right and that’s a big thing with Mental Health. It’s not about the ‘fight’ or ‘being strong’, it’s often about getting in the right place with the right support.
Studies have proven that receiving the right kind of structured support within a supportive group of like minded people who have been or are going through something similar to you always gives the best results.
No, I am only going to open this every 2-3 months so that everyone starts in the same place and so that everyone is on a similar journey.
Yes they are recorded and saved to the Facebook group. You can join in with your camera off too if you are shy at first, but we would love to see your face. Every member was nervous at the start but most are seeing huge changes in their life and their confidence in just a few months so being brave and really diving in will improve your life in so many ways. You can also just watch the streaming through the Facebook group and comment if you don’t want to join the Zoom at all.
Any time, and I answer them as soon as I can. Although it does help other members to see the questions asked and my answer so I always encourage you to ask your questions into the group if you are able to. Often other members have the same questions you do and it’s good to know you are not alone.
Absolutely, the Zooms are streamed directly into the private Facebook group so you can just watch them or join in as much or as little as you like. A few members started off just commenting on posts etc but the other members made them feel so welcome they then felt more comfortable coming onto the Zooms. It really is great to see someone’s confidence grow over just a few weeks/months and yours will too!
Not at all, we have little videos that walk you step by step through the process of joining everything.
