The Journey Back To You!
My Journey Back To Me
Five years ago I was in a complete state. I was miserable, lonely, exhausted and suffering with poor health.
The relationships with my family were fraught, I felt the outsider in my friendship circle, I was in yet another unfulfilling relationship and although I should have been pleased with a recent promotion, I found myself with crippling perfectionism and imposter syndrome.
I was drained with it all!
So much so that come the weekend I had no energy to have fun or self-care and regularly found myself cancelling plans. Unless it was to help someone else, in which case I would somehow muster up the energy, ever the people pleaser in desperate need to be liked.
I was so caught up in trying to be who I thought I should be, that I lost the essence of myself.
Four years ago I reached a state of burnout. I tried to push through it to no avail and was eventually signed off work for 6 months with stress, anxiety and symptoms of an autoimmune thyroid condition.
I’d hit rock bottom!
I decided enough was enough. Something, and that something was me, had to change. I invested in a coach and so began my healing journey.
As I began to peel back the layers, I realised that I had thought patterns, habits and coping mechanisms that weren’t serving me. Indeed, they were leading me to pain and sadness.
I came to realise that my thinking led me to be in state of almost constant stress and anxiety. My nervous system was always poised for some sort of danger or problem. It was literally exhausting my brain and body!
Fast forward three years and it’s a totally different story…
I’ve created a life that I love!
I’m happy and healthy with a powerful and strong mindset that sees obstacles and challenges as an opportunity to grow.
My own transformation has been so powerful that I was driven to become a coach myself. I’ve acquired a number of skills and qualifications including Coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Emotional Intelligence, so that I can share all that I have learned on my own journey to support you on your journey back to you.

Community and support
I have found a renewed joy in my life by practicing living in the moment, rather than constantly chasing an unattainable goal of perfection. My family and close friends have noticed a positive change in me too.
The Journey Back to You Programme with Natalie has been invaluable. If you are wondering whether to take this step and join up, I would definitely encourage you to do so. As soon as I logged into the sessions, I automatically felt relaxed and knew I had done the right thing by investing in myself. As Natalie says: The only person that will benefit from a burnout is no-one. I therefore encourage you to invest in yourself because it has truly been the best thing I have done. The programme has restored my confidence in myself. Something I struggled with before meeting Natalie. Natalie provides you with not only fantastic group learning, she gives tools and methods to use when outside of the sessions. I have learnt to use these at points in the day when I feel they are needed. I now meditate every day and regularly practice saying positive affirmations. I am still on my own journey, I now feel so much happier and I am making positive steps daily.
Working with Natalie has been absolutely eye-opening. She has taught me so much about myself and the limiting beliefs which have been holding me back in life, and I continue to use everything she taught me on a daily basis. It truly makes a world of a difference having these tools at my disposal. Her kindness and patience is awe-inspiring, and she has a unique ability to get to the root of problems and cater to your specific needs. She created an amazing environment for the group, and I learned so much from hearing others’ input and revelations, as well as sharing my own story in a room filled with such compassionate and growth-focused individuals. It’s comforting to know that Natalie has been through this journey herself and has come out the other side with such profound wisdom and a light to shine for others. I can’t recommend the “Journey Back To You” enough. It is an incredible well-worth-it experience! Thank you Natalie X”
I have less brain fog, less inflammation, less pain and more energy. What is more important than that, though, is that Natalie has really helped me to shift my mindset. It is still a work in progress but my mental and emotional wellbeing is on a whole new level.
Many moons later I am still applying her teachings and taking life twists and turns with more grace than I could have ever accomplished before her. She showed me that my light could burn brightly without burning out. I am grateful for her guidance and friendship.
Natalie helped me to look at things from a different perspective and to respond to myself and others with kindness rather than judgement. I’m now in a completely different place compared to where I was at the middle of the year.
With Nat's help I have gained confidence and found my zest for life. I’m excited about my future, feel that I have found my way and I have found peace and learnt how to breathe. I like me. I have reconnected with old friends and reignited passion for hobbies I'd let slip for no good reason.
I have achieved things that I thought were merely dreams, or only for ‘other people’. I am far more positive, confident and content with who I am, and on track to fulfilling both personal and professional goals.
I joined Natalie's Journey Back to You programme on the 21st March and it has made such a difference to me, my relationships with others, work and my general outlook on life. My biggest learning about myself so far has been that I can't be and I'm not responsible for everyone's happiness. It's been so refreshing to take a step back and not worry all the time about what I should have done or said. If you are wondering whether to sign up for this course then I would say you've already taken a huge step, Natalie will take you through the rest of the journey giving you time to evaluate yourself without apportioning blame. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to improve their wellbeing.
