Jacqueline, a prominent member of our preloved community has recently launched her new website, and we couldn't wait to share her story...
"I had a tough childhood and slipped into drugs and alcohol at a very young age. I was anorexic, bulimic, depressed and suffered terrible anxiety and crippling low self esteem. Finding comfort in my addictions, I spent my time functioning badly or in total isolation. I simply couldn’t handle life.
In my mid-twenties, I hit rock bottom and couldn’t continue. I decided something had to change. No matter what it took I was going to transform my life. Somewhere deep down inside I knew I was here for much more. I tried different forms of therapy but felt no one ‘got it’, that no one really understood me. So I decided to start studying and find a way to help myself.
From the day I made that change I haven’t looked back. Over the last 12 years I’ve studied all over the world and along my path I have come across people desperate for advice and guidance just as I had been years before. They turned to me asking for help. Having been there myself, I found it easy to appreciate the battles they were fighting. More and more people approached me and it became evident my coaching practice had to be set up.
These days I grab life with both hands and believe strongly that anything is possible. I believe that we can do or be or have anything we want once we truly manage our mind. Each experience from my own story taught me so much. I am grateful for every single lesson and now get to give back.
I specialise in working with emotional eating/body image issues and weight management as well as issues of anxiety, low confidence, low self esteem, addictions and other debilitating issues which can make life feel like a battle. I’ve been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Network and in The Sunday Times, Harper’s Bazaar, The Daily Telegraph, The Daily Mail, BBC London, The Huffington Post, Talk Radio and The Times.
My personal site is www.jacquelinehurst.com and my new school is www.thelifeclass.com which is a brand new virtual training school for people who want to take their own journey of self development or wish to be a life coach. So many people are interested in wellness now so taking care of your mind is key first and this is the school to show you how – all from the comfort of your own home!
Registration is open and we are taking bookings for our January 2015 class"
