Since my childhood, I was always people focused. Having learned how words, with the right instruction and or the right intention, can, if delivered in an appropriate way… help to bring about a change in someone else.
For the last 6 years, along with a crack team of emotional coaches, I have been working with a unique group of individuals – clients with Military and Emergency services backgrounds, including those from the toughest elite military forces. These groups even with their incredible abilities both physically and mentally are at the heart of it all… they are just human.
When we see them, we take off all their labels, ranks and deal with them on the level of common humanity, with care, empathy and compassion. What we bring to Mind Out The Way clients, is truly battle tested, and military grade intervention (MGI).
Personally having had a background in entertainment, and a foray into contact sport, I understand fear of performance. It was when I first started in the entertainment industry, and in front of live audiences when a process of “refinement” started. I was soon brought down to earth and “died” on stage quite a few times before I figured out what I needed to do differently. There were many times I felt sick, where my stomach felt like a tight knot, fear gripped me, or a total lack of confidence or belief in self was overpowering and worst, the fear of what others were thinking and or what they might say about my performance or lack thereof. When I did eventually have a clue as to what I could do better – even though I knew my lines, the song or had a head full of humour to adjust to whatever audience was in front of me – I still felt terrible when thinking about performing under the spotlight in front of all those people. Be it the crowd at the boxing ring screaming abuse, or the audience suggesting I keep my day job… I found a way to quiet the negative voice in my head, and ways to change the feelings I was experiencing in my psyche and in my body. Eventually, I was able to perform, doing what I love, and getting paid to do it – fearing nothing and no one, because I was able to overcome my worst critic… myself.
Looking forward to helping others. Feel free to get intouch. Very best. Lee
