The Lifestyle Concept
Offering you emotional and practical support in all areas of your life.
Hello there, and welcome to The Lifestyle Concept, Destination Happy…
I have, over the last few months, mulled over in my mind what on earth do I call myself? A PA/Girl Friday? Well yes, I am those things (I am a qualified PA) but the truth is, I help people move forward in a positive manner. I will sit with you and discuss how I can help you and then make a plan of action. For some people, it could be just to take a lot of things to a charity shop or help you to re-style your home, clear the garden, organise your time better (less stress) by introducing some organisation systems, including sorting your paperwork. On the larger project side of things, I can help you downsize, move, or organise an event (find venue choices), walk your dog (I am a huge dog fan and am fully insured), keep an eye on your children whilst you go out for the day and spoil yourself (I am DBS checked), help you paint your property, suggest interior ideas, home styling as well as wardrobe and home decluttering (my favourite thing). Is it possible to be everything for everyone? The usual answer would be a resounding NO! However, in my 53 years on this earth, I have experienced a wide range of challenges, personally and in business, which all helped me grow and learn. Even if I don't have a solution for everything, I can assure you I will know someone who has.
I have taken on many challenges in my own life which includes everything from gardening (which I love), decluttering my property and wardrobe, learning to let go of what no longer serves me or which I no longer need, and navigating this thing called 'life' as smoothly as I can. I had a colourful life - I lived in London and Los Angeles and worked in TV, Music, high-end skincare and legal industries as well as a PA for some pretty interesting characters. Like all of us, I have had ups and downs but I always think it is how you handle the knocks that define the rest of your life. I have worked on my own personal development over the years which included Hypnotherapy, educational courses, positive living groups, meditation, empowering books, CBT, and realised that the moment of happiness in your life should be right now. This moment in your life is guaranteed. Through my own research, courses and reading I have found some easy applicable practices that can help you find that inner peace that we all long for. Over and above the spiritual and mental growth, finding the right (and easy to do) meditation practice, and generally working on bringing fun into my life, has helped me to grow stronger. I am now living a truly authentic life and want to help others move forward in whatever way they need my help.
In 2014, I moved from London to beautiful Dorset and launched myself into trying to 'save' the high street in Highcliffe along with some other lovely people. I re-formed a litter picking group, joined the Highcliffe Centre Partnership, and was actively involved in helping to regenerate the high street including doing the marketing campaign for the Highcliffe Food Festival for three years. One of the highlights of my help was the painting of the bollards on the high street with my friend Helen. It was a pleasure to see how many people appreciated some job so small, adding a bit of colour to the high street gave it a refreshed new look. It gave me a sense of what I wanted to do - help communities and people to get the most out of their lives. This is what I love to do and what I do best!
I will come to see you, give you a complimentary forty-five minute 'assessment chat', and we work out together what you need help with and I will prepare a proposal based on what is needed. Perhaps you just need some life guidance, a shoulder to lean on or a friendly ear. I am your @DestinationHappyGirl and I look forward to helping you become the best version of you.
