Mindset Coaching supercharged with Hypnotherapy for Entrepreneurs and Business Owners

Working for yourself can be a blast. It’s the ultimate goal – you work your own schedule, you’re your own boss, and at the end of the day the profit from your hard work is all yours.

But I know from personal experience that it rarely goes quite like that

Alongside the independence comes exhaustion, overwhelm, anxiety and fear. Entrepreneurs are often struggling to juggle a business life with family life. You’re under pressure to balance budgets, impress investors and provide an exceptional service for clients. All while striving to be the partner and parent you always planned to be.

You may struggle with self-confidence and feeling stuck, while trying to appear strong on the outside. Perhaps you play it small, for fear of being visible if you really begin to shine.

Can you really have it all though?

I believe that entrepreneurs work so hard on their businesses, that they let their mental wellbeing suffer. Research shows that more than 92% of entrepreneurs mostly or completely identify themselves and their worth with their business. Their sense of identity outside of their business has been almost completely eroded! This means their relationships suffer, their physical and mental health suffer, and they leave themselves at high risk of burnout, anxiety and depression.

I am passionate about making deep, long-lasting internal change in my clients, that creates radical external results in their lives.

Which is where I come in

I provide a confidential, safe place to explore the realities of your inner world – your personal struggles, your real frustrations, you complex business challenges and people issues, as well as the daunting landscape of entrepreneurship.

Together, we discover how you can more effectively lead yourself and others.

I will help you to re-discover that you already have all you need within yourself. Confidence and courage are your birthright.

Deeper healing, higher impact

I am a qualified and registered Cognitive Hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner. I developed my practice on London’s prestigious Harley Street and now work internationally online and face-to-face in North Essex and London.

Confidence and courage are your birthright.

I use the tools of hypnosis, NLP and coaching intuitively alongside therapeutic techniques such as EMDR, EFT, meditation and mindfulness. The work I do is nourished by my fascination with both neuroscience and ancient healing practices.

I use an intuitive blend of coaching and therapy so that you can continue to do the amazing work you’ve been called to do in your life to a higher level of success, while enjoying a more fulfilling personal life, improving your relationships with those you love, and having a happier family.

Transform fear into faith, self-doubt into self-confidence, feeling stuck into being in flow, and feeling like there’s never enough time and money into space, affluence and freedom.

Dreading is Worse that Doing

I had something that I needed to do today. Well, really I needed to do it a week ago. But I put it off, and put it off. And then today arrived, and I had to do it.

What people say…

Victoria provided me with clarity on how to solve some important issues that I was having with my business. I recognise now how I was putting obstacles in my own way to success.
Thank you, Victoria!

Victoria is AWESOME! Every call I showed up with something different that was challenging me and every time Victoria helped me to work through it with compassion, insight and humour. Don’t miss the fantastic opportunity to work with her!

I was totally stuck when a friend recommended I call Victoria. I had been struggling with motivation to work and was unhappy with what I was producing. Victoria gently guided me through the things that were limiting me (my own beliefs!!), and helped me to establish good practices to get me back on track.

My Hours. My Time. My journey to running my own business.

Before I retrained as a therapist, I worked in London as a magazine editor. It was a great job, with great colleagues and good pay. The hours could be long when deadlines loomed, and I always felt the pressure of performing. But I loved the “idea” of what I did, I loved the question at parties or meeting new people: “So, what do you do?”

I left that job because the magazine I was working on – which I adored – folded, and I was transferred to another one – which I couldn’t muster any enthusiasm for.

I’d harboured plans to travel in South America for years, so took the opportunity and quit.

My intention was to come back to England in three months, and find another editor job.

But I came back three years later, with a baby, and no desire to return to full-time work.

The thing is, before I went away, that’s all I knew. I never once considered starting my own business, or working for myself. I went to a great school, but they mostly espoused the dream of becoming a teacher, or a doctor or lawyer, or finding another “good job”. We weren’t given any entrepreneurial training.

“Isn’t it easier just to go to a job and get paid for it?”

So when I met the father of my son, who was opening his own restaurant, had plans for a brewery and was consistently coming up with crazy business ideas, I was impressed – but it seemed like madness to me. I remember saying to him, “but it’s so much easier to just go to a job for the day and get paid at the end of it!”

On reflection though, that really hadn’t ever been easy for me. I never gelled well with bosses. I’ve never liked being told what to do. I resented colleagues who had better positions than me, or whose projects looked more exciting, because they’d worked their way up the ranks. I’ve always hated being tied to fixed hours and days, and pulled sickies or negotiated “working from home” days, when I had other plans come up.

I wanted my life to be my own.

When I came back to England, I needed work that would fit around raising a child. He was my number one priority, and I knew that I wanted to be around as much as possible for him until he was old enough to not want me to be.

Luckily, after almost three years with an entrepreneurial partner, some of his optimism, enthusiasm and motivation for being his own boss had rubbed off on me.

I retrained and jumped in with both feet. I had my therapy website up and collecting google juice half way through my training, so that when I was qualified I could take on clients from day one.

I am willing to put in the long hours, the blood, sweat and frustration it takes to learn the way to do this, if it means that I can keep on being my own boss.

Nothing compares to it.

What would stoke your fire?

If your dream is to be free from your 9-5, then you’ve got to find the escape hatch. It’s an incredible, thrilling ride.

It isn’t for everyone… but it could be for you.

You need to find the way to stoke that internal fire, as this takes passion and grit, determination and the ability to bounce back up every time you fall.

For me, I keep going because I am fueled by the desire to never put my hard-earned money into the pockets of someone else’s business. My money is mine. My time is mine.

If the only thing holding you back is confidence, then we can work on that.
