Louise George

Life & Business Coach, Presenter, Actress & Founder, Bodhi Babes

Hi! I'm Louise. I founded Bodhi Babes to inspire & support women and to help you create and live the life you desire. I've been there! Working jobs that made me miserable, spending all my time building businesses for little reward and feeling confused about what exactly I was doing it all for. It took me years to gain the confidence, clarity and right mindset to create the freedom based business and life I desired and I want to share my tools and practices with you, so you can start living the life you desire now. Feeling Stuck I trained as an actress and presenter always knew that was what I wanted to do but lacked the confidence, clarity and mindset to make it happen when I was younger, I also felt the pressure to get a 'real job' and my self- belief took a knock every time I went up for a casting or role I didn't get. So, I put my dreams to one side and took jobs and began building careers in other industries, first in real estate, then in advertising. I've always been creative and working in a corporate environment didn't suit me. I craved the freedom to work for myself and so decided to start my own businesses, I really had no idea what I was doing at first and learnt as I went along. I had some success with a property management and private PA business and then fitness coaching business, but something was still missing. Gaining Clariy After a series of events that got me questioning my life's purpose, including a dear friend and client passing away and personally suffering from depression, I realised it was time to take control and gain the clarity I needed to create the life I truly desire. So in 2012 I began a serious journey of self-development, working on all areas in my life and business, to regain my self-belief, balance and reconnect with who I am as an individual. Since gaining that clarity and focus, I have been able to create the life I could before only dream of. I am acting and presenting again and have worked on some brilliant films. I discovered that I also love coaching and from working with my fitness clients I found that women were looking for more than fitness coaching and it was actually their self-belief and confidence that needed the most work and many women are searching for the clarity and tools to create the business and life they want. Bodhi Babes Bodhi Babes began because I got clear on what my core desired feelings were and I realised that I have it within ME to achieve more than I had ever allowed myself to imagine before. Bodhi Babes is one of my great passions in life now and if I didn't get that inner clarity it would never have existed. I would also not be running beautiful workshops, 1-1 sessions, or writing this message for you. I am so blessed to have seen the light and the chance to create a life I am so in love with and that feels great. I want you to feel the same... Bodhi (Sanskrit: बोधि; and Pali) in Buddhism is the understanding possessed by a Buddha regarding the nature of things. It is traditionally translated into English with the word enlightenment and literally means awakened.

Jackee Holder

Professional & Personal Coach, Author, Speaker & Journal Coach, Life Is A Work In Progress!

I am energised and come alive when I am writing and journaling and over the years I have filled the pages of over one hundred journals. I am a bookaholic and see writers of all genres as part of my natural tribe. I am qualified in many areas of personal development and well-being including a Masters degree in creative writing and personal development from Sussex University and in the completion stages of training as a psychosynthesis counsellor. But by far life and it many bumps, bruises and triumphs continues to be my greatest teacher. Life has been a series of adventures and challenges but creativity has remained a mainstream force of my life. This means that over a period of twenty years I have authored four published books, 49 Ways To Write Yourself Well, Be Your Own Best Life Coach, The Journal Journey Guidebook and Soul Purpose along with numerous workbooks, e-books, free journaling products and articles for a range of journals and magazines. I have recently launched The Inner and Outer Nature Self Discovery deck of cards which brings together my love of journaling and nature. In my professional vocation I work as a corporate coach, coach supervisor and leadership facilitator. I love what I do, no two days are the same and I love how I can bring so much of what brings me alive into this work. I care about our environment and have a deep reverance for trees and nature. I hold nature and journaling as my go to sources of well being and write regularly around the therapeutic benefits of forest bathing, connecting with nature and journaling. Twice a year I open the doors to my online well being journaling class, Paper Therapy. Over five weeks you are immersed in a world of journaling prompts and exercises that empower you to creatively and mindfully grow a daily or weekly journaling practice. You will learn about the therapeutic benefits of journaling and how journaling can help you thrive even when you are challenged and stretched. Paper Therapy http://www.jackeeholder.com/events/paper-therapy-online-journal-writing-course/ I journal regularly, love listening to an eclectic range of podcasts interviews which challenge me to think outside the box. I am an early morning urban city walker and love the quiet hum of the mornings when most of the rest of the world is asleep. I have a real curiosity about trees and tree mythology and love the way trees beautify our and resource the environment. London is my home and for now I feel so lucky to live in the city with the most green parks and spaces in the world.

Author, speaker and founder Upping Your Elvis, Upping Your Elvis

Best selling author, speaker and business beatnik Chris Baréz Brown has a rather unusual view of the world in that he knows that everybody is perfect. As we grow, develop and socialise we can lose touch with that brilliance and often become somebody we’re not. Chris founded his Dorset based company Upping Your Elvis in 2009 to help people reconnect with their inner genius and once again become confident in being who they truly are. The Guardian recently described Chris as a long haired, twinkly eyed cross between Richard Branson and a wizard.
Dr Eva Detko, PhD

Natural Health Specialist / Author / Speaker / Podcaster, Dr Eva

Hi! I have always been fascinated with the marvels of the human mind and body. I am a great believer in a natural approach to health and have been immersed in this field for 17 years. The majority of my work is psychology-based. I use a range of methods, incl. hypnotherapy, Havening Techniques, NLP and Mindfulness. But I am also trained in nutritional therapy and an author of two specialist cook books. Having both psychology and nutritional expertise enables me to adopt a more comprehensive approach to problems that have a both physiological and psychological/emotional element, such as: weight problems, IBS, depression, chronic fatigue, immune system dysfunction (big fan of psychoneuroimmunology), etc. I always aim to help people treat the root cause of their presenting problem (whether psychological or physiological), rather than just symptoms. Because working with individual clients limits the number of people I can help, at the beginning of this year I launched a podcast called "Holistic Path to Health". The podcast is a great platform that enables me to share not only my knowledge and experience but also interview other experts who are willing to share their expertise with others.

Frances A Masters

Psychotherapist, Coach, Writer. Live your best life.

Do you want to be happier and more resilient? Some people seem to just 'bounce back' no matter what life throws at them. We can't choose many of life's events but we certainly do have a choice about how we respond. My passion for mental health began 25 years ago when I suffered postnatal depression and realised the help I needed simply wasn't there. The pills didn't work. In fact they made things worse. What I really needed was to understand how anxiety, depression and emotional ill health can develop. I needed to learn good 'mind management' skills which would act like a 'psychological inoculation' against future problems. When I recovered, I made a decision to find out how and why I had become so depressed and made a personal pledge to do something to provide the kind of help for others which I had needed. I wanted to prevent people suffering unnecessarily. So I embarked on a personal and professional journey and, along the way, developed a brand new approach to health and well-being. My journey began with four years of traditional counselling training, followed by a postgraduate diploma in psychotherapy. I studied cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), hypnotherapy, coaching and cognitive neuroscience. I built up 30,000 hours professional experience which I brought together into the new happiness and resilience programme l named 'Fusion.' I also wrote a book about how to resolve post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), founded a therapeutic coaching charity and trained volunteers to work in this new way. This training programme would later become the nationally accredited Fusion Therapeutic Coaching Diploma and Distance Learning Skills Certificate. Now... The journey continues. Now I want to reveal all my professional secrets about good mind management to as many people as possible through social media and by training Fusion Breakthrough trainers from all over the world. One of them could be you... Something new.. Something different.. Something which lasts.. What if you could experience one day which could actually change your life for good; giving you your own eureka moment; not only helping you create a vision of the life you want to live, but actually give you the real skills to get there and stay there? Fusion is a tried and tested system which combines the best of psychotherapy and coaching into a powerful new formula for lasting change. My aim is to help and empower as many people as possible to feel their best, be their best and live their best lives. Perhaps I could help you too....
