It is when the storm is coming…that you can truly see it and despite your gut telling you to stop, you run into it ready to fight, to stand for yourself and to know the truth.

When this is happening, a myriad of questions are exploding in your head to rationalise your feelings, your overwhelm need to let out your anger, your frustration and your refusal. Your brain is trying to find the answer to the issue, to put words on what you experienced.

But above all this fucking drama, after the storm passed, you do understand that the source of it is this ugly and blatant fear holding us back, keeping us small, scared and worried. And this is when you step away from this vicious circle, you say Adios to this limiting mindset and you make the conscious choice to fight for better, for love, for harmony. Because this storm is a miracle in disguise, to show you what needs to be changed for good and for ever.

Embrace this storm, this need to scream because you feel trapped, exhausted and lost. Honor your feelings. Cry. Fight back. Be the change you want to bring in your life.

Mindset Mentor, Motivational Speaker, Fear Expert and Head of GLCM Wellbeing Europe Communications at HSBC, A Rockstar Mindset

Let’s start with three qualities which define me, shall we? I am an optimist, I’m innovative and I’m energetic. If you’re looking for something unconventional blended with optimism and energy, welcome to the Rockstar Mindset QG. I am a Mindset Mentor, Fear Expert and Motivational Speaker. I’m also a UK Ambassador for Psychologies magazine, a publication which inspires and motivates readers to create a life they love through the online Life Labs platform. After 10 years working in the banking industry, I created my wellness consultancy, A Rockstar Mindset, to help ambitious women entrepreneurs become the rockstar of their life. How? By getting out of overwhelm, overcoming their fears and progressing to the next level in their business. When I became a mum, I strove to be the best mum possible. I did not foresee that my attitude, my pursuit of perfection, would leave me feeling constantly overwhelmed and on the edge of burnout. But it has long been my belief that positivity is a driver for change and leadership, and when I learned about positive psychology and neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to change and adapt), I was hooked. “Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living.” –- C. Peterson My approach is that there is more than we can see, that it’s fundamental to maintain a critical stance and to be independent of thought. I’ve always been the rebel, the outsider, the one to challenge the status quo and bring new and different perspectives or ideas. My encounter with positive psychology and the neurosciences confirmed for me that my beliefs (that we should think outside the box, focus on the positive) were accurate. I was on the right track! Convinced that there was another way to be successful at work and at home, I delved into the world of neurosciences, positive psychology and metaphysics and created my own system, Do Less, Get More Done – a framework that helps women to be successful with less overwhelm, whilst feeling more present. Positive psychology focuses on strengths instead of weaknesses, building the good in life rather than repairing the bad and reflecting on values and attitudes such as optimism, gratitude, compassion, self-esteem and resilience. The study of these topics came about from a desire to help people flourish and live their best lives. “It is not primarily our physical selves that limit us but rather our mindset about our physical limits.” ― E. Langer It is my conviction that every woman deserves to have a healthy mindset so that she can create a life on her terms. Why? Because we deserve to say stop to the pressure emanating from culture, social media, society. We deserve to be accepted and empowered. Our mind is our ally and must be strengthened as such. Shifting our mindset is vital as well as unlearning, removing the old beliefs holding us back, raising our consciousness and developing our intuition. The world needs us (as women) to positively make a difference to make the life of women, children, and future generations better. It’s time to build a healthy, conscious society based on mutual respect. And I genuinely believe that women have the skills to merge masculine and feminine energy to create something incredible. As for the rest: I love to travel, read books and dance with abandon. I’m married to a marvellous Frenchman and we have a daughter. I am fluent in English and French and I’m an advocate of beauty and women’s empowerment. My philosophy is Forward Thinking Communication and I’m here to help you become the Rockstar of Your Life.
