Then I had a lightbulb moment. What if my purpose in life is to help other people navigate their own journey of self-improvement?

ABOUT
ME

Early Years

Andy%20Downs%20-%20Young%20Years_edited.

My life began in Stoke-on-Trent in the mid-1980s.

I was very fortunate to have a wonderful childhood.  Lots of nice holidays with my family, I did well at school and I made lots of nice friends.

My academic achievements meant that I was able to go to college and then university to study film and television as I had high hopes of becoming a film director.  From a young age, I knew that I wanted an exciting life.

As I entered adolescence however, I knew that there was something different about me.

Born This Way

In my early teens, I came to the conclusion that I was gay. 

For many years to follow, I tried to hide my sexuality from everyone in my life and I had accepted that this is something that I would have to do for the rest of my life, a prospect that would often make me very unhappy.

It wasn't until my early twenties that I had no choice but to live my life as the person I was born to be.

Through a chance encounter, I met my now husband whom I have been with for over 12 years.

It took time but one by one I told my family and friends about who I really am.

Finding My Path

My journey of self-discovery didn't end when I came out.  I still was yet to discover my calling in life, a quest that took many twists and turns.

After studying film and television at university, I found myself stuck on a conveyor belt of jobs from various industries, all of which never quite hit the mark. Each new job brought more and more anxiety and frustration. I was desperate to find a career that would allow me to fulfil my life purpose.

The problem was that I didn't know what my purpose was.  This was the missing piece to my puzzle.

So I started to study and research all the ways to find true purpose in life.  

And Finally

Once I started to read about purpose in life, I suddenly developed a passion for self-development.  I became fascinated with the concept of improving my life and fulfilling my true potential.

Through my research, I also came across the theories on the Law of Attraction which introduced me to the concept that our thoughts and feelings have a direct link to our circumstances.

I'd never felt so empowered.  I started to truly believe that I was in control of my life and could do whatever I put my mind to.

And then one day I had a lightbulb moment - what if my purpose in life is to help other people navigate their own journey of self-improvement?  That's the moment I decided to become a Life and Manifestation Coach.
