Michaela'spersonal journey.

My journey began in 2013 as CEO of an executive coaching company, where I worked with the Cabinet Office in London with government boards, directors of industry and leaders at the highest level in the corporate world on a global stage.

I worked relentlessly hard, juggling my demanding career with raising a family at home. Outwardly I was the pinnacle of success, rising to the highest ranks in my industry, while a wife and a mother of three children. I lived with high expectations and worked under intense pressure personally, and professionally. Yet in reality I nursed a closely guarded secret – a growing problem with alcohol, self-inflicted pressure, and over-work that fuelled feelings of inner unrest and conflict that washed over into my personal life.

Over a period of 10 years, I smoked, over-drank and over-worked, as I over-thought myself further away from the perfectionism that I sought.

I suffered blackouts and bouts of complete memory loss from drinking.  At times I embarrassed myself in front of family and friends with my drunken behaviour. I felt truly inauthentic.

Then one day, my partner delivered a bombshell: “I'm leaving you... I'm not doing this anymore.”

It was my wake-up call.

I realized that I had lived with high expectations, and worked under intense pressure, personally and professionally my whole life.

I had been striving for freedom – the inner peace, the rest from waiting for the next day, the next thing – the silence of the searching and the moment when fulfilment is here, completely, wholly uninterruptedly, here. Right now. Not in three weeks, or five years’ time. Right now. My search had led me down a blank alley!

That was when my inner work began, and using my science, psychology and coaching I began questioning everything.

Then came awakening to self rediscovery

Michaela was anxiety-free, lighter and brighter than ever before!

My work started with breaking free from smoking and drinking and six months of intense research. One day, surrounded by my papers, research and notes, I realised that I thought and felt differently about alcohol, and cigarettes. My paradigm had shifted. The desire had gone, and in its place was peace and expansion.

That alone was a beautiful transformation, and that was just the beginning… after this personal revelation, I founded The Alcohol Coach three years later. But aside from solving a long-term problem with alcohol, there was more work to be done. Over the next seven years I travelled the world of teachers, and practitioners from Western psychology and quantum science, to ancient teachings of the Eastern masters.

I felt like I was waking up. My life and world was shifting. I felt connected, open, expansive, and free. The world was brighter, lighter, clearer and more joyful. Anxiety, and negative thought cycles had gone.

What emerged is Michaela's unique multidisciplinary approach for Self Rediscovery which cuts through convention and outdated ideas – to take you to a new level of consciousness. Her unique approach creates an innate power balance away from seeking for fulfilment or seeking to feel better, to connect with your true and authentic self. The results are a complete shift in your inner paradigm, bringing your life into alignment and revealing your power to live an elevated life bursting with infinite potential.
