About me

Hello!

Thank you so much for checking out my website!  I hope you have enjoyed everything you’ve seen so far and have found it valuable 🙂

I’m Louise, and I’m a personal growth specialist. I specialize in helping people with high-functioning depression move from surviving to THRIVING, so that they can live the happier, more fulfilled lives they dream of and make a positive difference in the world. I created this website to share knowledge, training, and insights to help you uncover what’s been holding you back, replace your negative thought patterns with empowering, supportive ones, and go out into the world with clarity, purpose, and confidence to create a positive impact in your life and in the lives of those you care about.

Oh, and I’ve been living with high-functioning depression since I was a teen.

My mission

I’m a self-confessed personal development junkie and believe that to give more in life, you must first become more. I’ve dedicated my working career to the education and nonprofit worlds and have found my purpose and greatest impact to be facilitating the growth of others.

My mission is to use my unique set of skills, insight, knowledge, and personal experience to help others with high-functioning depression uncover what’s been holding them back from becoming the person they have the potential to be. Traditional personal development books, courses, and techniques are often a challenge for us; it’s hard enough to keep yourself motivated to get through the daily grind, let alone trying to ‘be positive’ and pursue our goals as well. So many of us have the desire to grow and achieve more, but just can’t seem to find the right approaches and techniques to get there.

I’ve studied hundreds of personal development books and courses, as well as undergone professional training, and have pulled together some of the most effective personal growth techniques for individuals with high-functioning depression and low mood. My goal is to help you sift through the personal development maze and pull out the insights and techniques that have the best chance of working for you so that you can finally make progress towards creating a real positive mindset and taking the action you need to unleash your potential and achieve your goals.

More about me 🙂

I’m originally from the UK but now live in the United States (which is why you’ll notice I switch between British and American spellings throughout this website!) I have a bachelor’s degree in human psychology, with a special interest in positive and energy psychologies, and a master’s degree in organizational management. I’m also a trained domestic violence counselor advocate and hold several coaching certifications including neuro-linguistic programming and life purpose coaching. I’m a Reiki Master, and love camping, yoga, and anything cute and cuddly (my personal Facebook feed is basically just puppies / rabbits / otters / hedgehogs / anything snuggly).

Feel free to get in touch and say hello!

With love and thanks,
