An Introduction - A Little About Me!
I thought I'd start off my blog with a short introduction so you can get an idea of the coach behind the page and pics.
Hi! I'm Nas. I have over 2 decades worth of experience coaching people in 4 continents and I absolutely LOVE my job!
I guess I've been a fan of personal development for pretty much my entire life. As a child my favourite word was 'Why?'. It didn't matter what the topic was I always wanted to know why and at the age of 7 my parents decided they would teach me how to find the answers to my own questions, they bought me a set of encyclopedias and I read them like other kids read story books. My pocket companion was a Collins Pocket Dictionary!
I wanted to know everything about everything and as soon as we moved to a place with an actual library (we travelled around alot because of my dad's work) I got my first library card - Yes, in my childhood we didnt have the internet and Google, a blessing or i may have crashed the internet who knows!
Fast forward a few years and I started reading the books my dad would leave lying around, books by writers like Aldous Huxley, Carlos Castaneda and Dale Carnegie just to name a few. This is how I discovered that you can change who you are, for me this was music to my ears. I was a shy, introverted, socially awkward kid. Learning that I could make friends, I could influence people around me, I could actually become who I was on the deep deep inside where only I knew myself.
When I just turned 20 we moved to South Africa and that's where I began my journey into the holistic, spiritual and alternative therapies before moving to SA I had only read about these alternative methods of healing and since my dad believed that girls can't be doctors, I figured I'm going to heal the world in my own way and embarked on a new adventure learning every alternative healing modality I could find That was most of my early 20's. I became a Reiki Master, a Meditation Facilitator, a Manifesting Instructor (Law of Attraction), A Gem Therapist, Colour Therapist, Sound Therapist, An EFT Practitioner and I learnt Numerology. This was my 'recreation'.
The one thing I wanted was to help and heal people it's now become not just a dream but a reality. I find meaning and purpose in the work that I do helping to transform lives and help people reach their highest potential.
I would always do my coaching and my holistic therapies on the side, somehow believing people around me that it was a hobby and nobody can really make a career out of it. So I had day jobs! I started and sold businesses, was a workshop facilitator, sales trainer, I also worked in Talent Development and I'm proud to say I was a badass Sales Queen!
When I moved to London in 2014 I carried on coaching and working. The last 9 years have been amazing, I've learnt so much about myself as a person and as a coach and though I initially coached people through Personal Development, Relationships and Professional Development I began to see the value I was adding to people's lives manifesting in success in Business, In finding new jobs, getting promotions, healing relationships with family members, getting out of abusive relationships, learning to have difficult conversations, getting out of unhealthy patterns....I could go on but I'll stop.
Basically I began to see the impact I was able to make and the changes I was able to inspire and facilitate in others and in 2020 I decided I was going to go full time Coach. Gosh it was scary but I'm here now so it was worth it.
So, here we are! It's 2023, it's my birthday month and finally instead of a linkedIN page here and a Facebook group there I put everything together in one place and this website and blog is now live. My little corner of the internet where I hope I can continue making positive, progressive and up-building change to peoples' lives to support them on their journey to a life lived fully and a life of love, joy, health, happiness and harmony.
Thank you for reading, I would love to hear from you if anything I said resonated with you or even if you just have a question.
