Hi! Norell here. Thank you so much for dropping by.
My mission is to help women just like you – who know there is much more to life than circumstance. Women who have a calling to live a life that is truer to their hearts.
As a Social Worker, Counsellor and Coach, I have worked with 1000’s of people and families of all walks in life. I have also dedicated close to 20 years to studying and understanding human behaviour – from why we do what we do, to why we get what we get.
For many years I personally felt like I was never good enough. I felt stuck, incomplete and unworthy. I feared change and was constantly overwhelmed by by a heavy burden of sadness and anxiety that just wouldn’t go away. I often felt alone… disconnected from myself and others.
I constantly compared myself to others and would regularly dumb myself down and play small. The feeling of inadequecy became my default, and I would often sit on the sidelines and allow others to treat me like I was never capable of going beyond the MASSIVE high walls that I had built around myself.
However, I knew that my life was destined for much more than the life I had built for myself, so I sought help from numerous coaches, counsellors and professionals, regularly investing 5-figure amounts in personal development seminars. Over time I became fed up with my own story which was repeating over and over again. Though I got some great results, they were often short lived. And I would spiral back to my old ways of thinking, feeling and behaving.
Not only did I want to improve my own life, but I also had a passionate drive to discover why some people experience great joy and peace in their lives and why other people pushed, struggled, hustled and often laid back, letting life simply pass them by. I therefore spent several years immersing myself in university studies, where I would often be found immersed in psychology, philosophy and self-development books, desperately seeking an understanding as to how people can live a happy and fulfilling life.
What I can share with you is this – none of my years of formal study in psychology and social work alone was going to help me reach a resolution. I just felt like I had tried everything! And I often wondered, “what did I miss?”
Many years after completing my formal study and working in a professional counselling and facilitation capacity, much to my delight, I became a mother! One night, I found myself sitting on the dark on the floor of my baby’s room, patting him to sleep as he cried with ear piercing screams, once again. It was in this moment that I knew that I had to make a change to my own life, because what I had been doing up until then hadn’t been working. It was as if my baby was telling me “You can keep fighting all the unpleasant things in life or you can simply let go and accept what was happening in the moment”. Up until that moment, life hadn’t been working. I was continually being driven by fear and anxiety. I was directed by the opinions of others; by what society said was right and wrong; and what my own upbringing and the previous generations had taught me to be true. In that moment, a deep sense of calmness came over me and I decided that the quality of my life and the life of my child, depended upon me listening to my inner wisdom and connecting with a deeper knowing within me.
Up until that moment I had felt like I was just meandering through life with shit happening TO me, and stuff coming AT me from all angles. And in my attempt to try and manage everything, and everyone around me, I became a control freak, and yet I had control over nothing that truly mattered. I felt like I was lacking and that there was something constantly missing from my life, leaving me with the feeling that I was never good enough and incomplete.
That night I STOPPED. I scooped my baby up in my arms, kissed him and took him into bed with me, where he slept soundly close to my heart until the morning. What an awaking this moment was! To realise that I didn’t have to do things the way everyone else told me they needed to be done and that I could make my own decisions felt good. And when I felt good, those closest to me reaped the rewards. This learning presented itself time and time again—and continues to do so on a daily basis as I raise two young boys and work with and coach a myriad of amazing women from around the world.
As I began to accept the ‘as-is’ and listen more to my inner knowing I could see that everything around me was a mirror of my inner self. EVERYTHING – with no exception.
Deep down I knew that I couldn’t solve my problems using the same kind of thinking that I used to create them. So there was no coincidence that around this time I came across a coach and mentor who was willing to teach me how she had helped herself and so many other women to experience life from a place of wholeness, integrity and purpose. After experiencing this process myself, I was FINALLY able to let go of the negative emotions and limiting beliefs that had been holding me back. Best of all, the process was simple, enjoyable, fast and painless, and the results were immediate and long lasting!
So it was this life changing process, a vital piece of the puzzle, that I was able to add to what I had learnt from my studies and personal life experiences that became a complete game changer for me. With this knowledge and hands on experience I am now able to combine the benefits of my own breakthrough, together with my own unique personality and understanding of what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to transforming the lives of women.
Ultimately I discovered that it’s not just about using some breakthrough coaching framework. You would agree – there are hundreds of coaching frameworks out there that claim to work wonders.
What makes the difference is a highly effective framework, together with finding the right coach just for you. If you decide to work with me, you will not only get to experience a profound and unique coaching framework, you will also have access to a coach who has turned their own life around and become a mentor and facilitator of change in others.
I am a proud mother and founder of Parenting from the Heart (1100+ Facebook followers) – designed to inspire parents to transform themselves and empower their children to live beautiful and extraordinary lives. It is my passion and belief that if we can transform the lives of women and release them from their own childhood conditioning, they will then gift their children with the opportunity to live their own unique lives, free of negative emotions and limiting beliefs that are unconsciously passed on to future generations. By releasing and letting go of these problems once and for all, they will no longer negatively impact on future generations, who will instead be free to live authentic and fulfilled lives where they are free to be themselves.
