Hey there! I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Ellouise Heather, an accredited MasterCoach, sensitive intuitive, graduate of the University of Leeds with a BA Philosophy/Theology and Religious Studies and failed law student. Yes, I used the ‘F’ word! More on that later…
I help the sensitive, heart-centred woman free herself from ‘shoulds’, judgment and expectation, so that she can find the strength in her sensitivity, reconnect with her gifts and go on to live the life that’s calling her. I do this because this was my own struggle not too long ago.
When I was about 4, I decided I was going to be a lawyer ‘just like my dad.’ Growing up, I considered many different paths but always came back to this. I was a sensitive child and remember being told that I was in fact ‘too sensitive.’ This didn’t do much for my self-esteem.
Skipping ahead to university, I decided that I didn’t want to do a law degree, as philosophy and religion sounded way more interesting. I figured I could ‘rebel’ and study what I wanted because I knew I ‘should’ have a ‘sensible career plan.’
I still struggled with sensitivity while at uni, and started to develop depression as a result, with continuing low self-esteem. There was also something else niggling at me though:
I didn’t know what I really wanted to do with my life or who I really was.
Despite this, I somehow pulled it together to get my degree and apply for a law conversion diploma.
It was while at law school that something started to go wrong with my health. Slowly at first, but as I kept pushing through with my obligations, I became more ill. I was eventually diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. While it was a difficult time for me, it also turned out to be a catalyst for the direction of my life.
It was through illness that I started to look within, to who I was and what I really believed.
I realised that I didn’t want to be a lawyer and I was making myself ill from it. I was doing what I ‘should’ do. I was trying to live up to society’s expectations. I was afraid of being judged for who I really was.
So much has changed in the past 8 years for me: I’ve rediscovered my own gifts and reframed my sensitivity as a shining strength rather than a wilting weakness. I’ve stopped hiding behind an identity assigned to me and started living in a way that is truer to who I really am. Do you want that too? Get in touch with me now.
