“I found my intuition – and it changed my life”
I didn’t really know what I was looking for: I just knew there was something missing in my life.
I felt under-utilised – I had excellent academic qualifications, including a PhD in Biochemistry but I wasn’t using them.
I had made the children and their needs my excuse for not changing. I managed to prevaricate. I told myself, “I’m being a Mum – I’m being really useful,” but I secretly felt guilty at not using my skills.
I didn’t know what to do with my life. I thought: I’m wasting my brain. I’m wasting my education. I want to contribute, but I didn’t know what to do to make the change.
