Startup Stories: Helping healthy minds with a not so healthy body

startup storiesTell us about your product or service.
I am an Australian psychotherapist specialising in helping women and girls. I do private counselling, mentoring, workshops and write for a parenting website. My passion is helping women and girls overcome poor self image and the associated anxiety and depression.

What inspired you to launch your business?
I have been consistently in and out of hospital for 3 years. After 7 surgeries, lung collapses, intensive care visits, convulsions, anaphylaxis and a few other dramatic experiences, I admitted to myself that I was struggling to work full time for someone else, take care of my small son and be healthy. I was overwhelmed, stressed about the inconvenience of my health to my boss, colleagues and family. My health challenges are long term, so I needed to start thinking long term about my happiness.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
I help women and girls love who they are and love the lives they live.

What has been your biggest challenge and how are you working to overcome it?
I still have the same health challenges and I am still consistently in and out of hospital. My biggest challenge has been acknowledging that my ‘control freak’ tendencies are detrimental and that the world won’t fall apart if I am not busy. It’s still something I am working on, but I am relishing the chance to put myself, my family and my love of helping others before a bosses demands.
