I am Silvia Meredith, a mum of three, a keen runner, trained nurse and a Certified Coach and Mentor.
I specialize in supporting parents and carers who have a young person suffering with a mental health issue, or who are facing a similar condition caused primarily by anxiety.
I am non-judgmental, a sensitive listener and I’ve always been intent on helping people overcome their issues.
My background initially was in the healthcare industry where I trained to be a nurse. I took a break to care for my 3 children, whilst keeping active and planning my next career path. This turned out to be setting up my own business as a Personal Trainer. It has been very rewarding seeing people make changes around their fitness and confidence particularly when I have applied Life Coaching.
My experience of Life Coaching and why I am passionate about it:
I discovered Coaching by chance and it turned out to be a life changing experience for me. Coaching helped me verbalise my thoughts and feelings which is something I couldn’t do beforehand. It helped me to understand me, particularly certain actions and behaviours. It also helped me to explore and figure out what I wanted, what I didn’t, and how I was going to make changes. It had an enormous impact on me as a parent and as a person, and it has helped me through some of my toughest times. Mostly, it has taught me that every challenge we overcome results in us becoming a much stronger and a much more resilient person. It made such a significant difference to my life that I decided to become a Life Coach myself.
I no longer waste my time and energy on finding out why we face challenges, but instead I focus on what we can do about them and how we can deal with them. I have learnt tools and strategies that have helped me move forward. They are a huge part of my coaching and I use them with my clients.
What I love about this process is seeing parents begin to believe in themselves, take control, become more positive and sometimes even do what they initially thought they couldn’t do.
If you think you are in an impossible situation and you don’t think there is a way out, I can assure you there is always a solution, if you want to find one.
