From Hollywood film marketing to Intuitive Life and Mind-Body Coach...
Hi love! I'm Natalie. Here's a bit of my story and how I'm here to help you.
4 years ago I hit a rock bottom.
After 10 years in a high stress film industry job with unforgiving deadlines, staying in a string of unhealthy relationships for too long, one which had just ended, and 20 years of battling with my weight, my body was falling apart and my heart was hurting.
I asked myself three questions...
Why can’t you just take better care of yourself or stick to a diet? Why do you keep getting stuck in unhealthy relationships? What do you really want to do with your life?
I knew there was something deeper going on and I set out on a quest to find out what. I went to personal growth workshops, worked with transformational coaches, studied holistic health and was certified as an Eating Psychology Coach.
I didn’t love myself enough to show up for myself in life or in health. I had some deep wounds and conditioning from childhood that were getting in my way. Years of people pleasing, ignoring my intuition, and working myself to the bone, had eroded my self-confidence and self-worth. And focusing on my weight as a measure of my health for 20 years had prevented me from hearing the whispers of warning from my body, and the cries for help from my soul.
I went deep into transformational work, healing my body and heart, learning a new, empowered mindset, and finding self-love and self-belief as I began to live a more wholehearted, authentic life.
My body, and my relationship with food became my guide. From emotional eating and weight to anxiety and depression, I learned the root causes for all of it, and instead of feeling frustrated by my body, today I’m empowered by her. She is a messenger to me from my soul, pointing to all the ways my life is out of alignment with my truth.
And I found a calling in supporting women in a similar way. Whether they are as lost as I was, or just need a little bit of extra love and insight to get them on track, my time in the depths and learning to forgive and heal myself and those around me, has given me a capacity for compassion and holding space that I know so many women need.
And the funny thing is, the career that burned me out and led me to my calling, also gave me a unique set of skills I could use to support my clients.
As a market research strategist for films in post production, we tested early cuts of the film - the draft so to speak - with audiences who would fill out questionnaires. I would dig deep into the data, often led by my intuition, to discover what was missing from the story to make the film more whole. Kindof like a life coach for movies.
And that’s what I do with my clients.
Your story, what’s happening in your body, and your relationship with food is my data. I use a combination of my experience, my intuition, and asking the right questions to help YOU get to the root cause of what's in your way to feeling at home and healthy in your body, and happy in your life.
Just like me, you have blind spots. If you feel stuck and at a loss for what to do next, I can help you. I help you become present to and heal your wounds, your inner child, your heart, and the symptoms in your body with love and compassion so you can feel whole, empowered, and build a new foundation for your health and creating a life that you love.
You are a beautiful, magical, unstoppable goddess of light...but your bright and confident self is a little lost...
Ultimately you want more from life, to feel more passionate, inspired, confident, self-loving and to express yourself authentically in relationships and in the world, but you are hesitant to do so for fear of judgement or rejection.
You're sick of yo yo dieting and want to have sustainable, long term health, feel comfortable in your own skin, and maybe drop some weight but get to a place where you don't care if you do.
You're ready to really know and love all of who you are so you can own it and have the confidence to stand for your value in relationships and in business, and make real waves in the world.
And you're done searching for answers in books, blogs and podcasts, you're ready to feel the support and guidance of someone who has walked the same path and gotten to the other side.
Some other things that are true for most of my clients that might be true for you...
Your inner voice gets really loud. A lot. You are often really hard on yourself, and you're harder on your body.
When it comes to health, you have a hard time doing what you know is "good for you". You struggle with emotional eating, taking the time to nourish yourself and/or managing or losing weight. You have a hard time finding time for yourself and for self care in your busy life.
You may be really sensitive or empathic but don't know it, or are discovering that you are.
You have a challenging relationship with at least one of your parents, most likely your mother.
At a young age you felt like you had to be the responsible one. Maybe you were the one who looked after your siblings
